RE: Observations from recent searches

We are planning on spending much more time on the road and in our rig once I am able to retire. But I have never considered that I will upgrade to a better "quality" rig. I have come to realize that an RV is built for part time use and lite weight for pulling down the road. I get a kick out of the folks that think they can find a rig that was built with the same quality as our homes. Yes, some rigs are built better than others. But is it worth the extra cost?

RE: Etiquette in Camping

I was heading down to a lake shore in Oregon to do some fishing and couldn't find a path or trail from the campsite loop road. The lakeshore was lined with nice camp sites and I ended up asking some campers if I could walk through their site. They said no problem and thanked me for being considerate. People don't need to be taught this type of consideration. They either are, or don't care, IMHO. I see lack of consideration everywhere in today's world. From the grocery store to our highways.

RE: Poll

Kinda depends on the amount of darkness and the amount of air we want circulating. And the closeness of neighbors.

RE: Snowing in Colorado

The unusual cold front came through here yesterday. Only to last one day. But it sure does make it feel like winter...Burr

RE: Rear Dining

I would guess it would depend on where the views are at any particular park or campground. Our rig's layout has the biggest window and dining area on the drivers side which means we would normally be looking out at a neighbors site. I would have preferred the dinette be at least looking out towards our own outdoor living area. BTW, when designing a park's layout, with views in mind, we attempt to give the outdoor living area the highest priority.

RE: Does Furnace Run on DC Power??

I tested my furnace fan and it measured 6.7 amps.

RE: Age of tires on your tow vehicle/ When to replace?

My tires wore out before they aged out. Yep. Every time, since I was 16 years old.

RE: tell me about your toilet!

I have mentioned earlier about rinsing my black tank a few times to get the sensors to indicate "empty" (I use the sensors to tell me that the tank is sparkly clean ;)). In that process I prop the flush disk open and use a nozzle on the end of a garden hose to pressure clean that cavity area you are talking about. I will not use that process after every campin' trip, but will do it enough times to generally make the area appear pretty clean.

RE: Generator Observation

So if you start seeing them pop up in campgrounds, you can thank me for starting the trend. ;) Sure hope that never happens. :R What the hell for? Exactly what others would ask about your stupid laser lights. At least a genset, even a noisy one, serves some useful purpose. :S :S :S "your stupid laser lights". IMHO, I would much rather have my campin' neighbors sitting around their campfires looking straight up and watching their laser lights under the tree canopies than those same neighbors sitting inside their RV watching a movie on the big screen TV and their "useful purpose generator" blaring away outside, powering the TV. FWIW, our kids would often shine their flashlights up into the tree canopies while sitting around the campfire. Never occurred to me that we may have been annoying our neighbors. :S :B

RE: Route 299 in California

With Crescent City being the goal, it's about the same time either 299,101, vs I-5, 199. I would take 299, 101 for the scenery, but for a more easy drive, I-5, 199.

RE: Generator Observation

Instead of an open field of football game revelers, how would you like to be taking a walk along a stream adjacent to a dry campground operated by the Forest Service, and not even be able to hear the stream because of the generators going so RVer's can make their coffee and use their microwaves.

RE: Hint for posting % on rv.net

100-percent of the time I use this process.

RE: what is "glamping'?

= Dry camping and running your generator all day long so you can feel just like you are at home but while looking out your RV window you may see a wild animal, like a squirrel or something.

RE: CA 199

We take that route 3 or 4 times a year. When you get close to the coast, you will find the road meandering along the Smith River. Take your time and use the turnouts to let the faster cars go by. Don't let the cars push you faster than what you are comfortable with. Beautiful scenery.

RE: Best 5ER for full timer?

Sounds like you plan on living in your new to you 5er at an RV park or a trailer park. Cause you need a truck to "being able to take my "home" with me wherever I decide to relocate". Many types, sizes, and price ranges out there. If it were me, I would start going to RV sales places and walking through some of them just to see what's out there and what feels comfortable. Then search for a good deal.

RE: GREAT Mysteries of RV'n

Of course if the manufacturers didn't install the sensors, we would all be complaining that they should put them in.
korbe 09/18/16 03:56pm General RVing Issues

When my BT sensors don't show empty after a dump, that tells me it's time for some flushing. Since we are weekend campers, I prefer to rinse the tank, kinda like changing the sheets. While at home and in the driveway, I will have the slinky connected and fill the tank, then dump. It may take a couple times, but when my sensors finally show empty, my mind envisions a sparkling clean and shiny tank. :)

RE: Dump stations along I5 in north CA

............And I might add,, California has non-dumping at any of it's rest areas that I know of. Not quite sure what that means, but 101 in northern California has a dump at the rest area. 299 also.

RE: Dump stations along I5 in north CA

We will use the dump station at Valley of the Rogue State Park just north of Medford to dump and fill our fresh water tank.

RE: Woodsmoke Campground Pet Policy

If it were me, I would invest in some video cameras instead. But by the park name, at least we can have a smokey campfire. That's a plus. :B
