RE: Chainsaw ?

A chain saw can get you out of a jam too. Not just for fire wood.

RE: Short Queen bed length too short!

We had room to extend the frame to fit a new California queen pillow top mattress. With the headboard that slopes back, I had no room at all before.

RE: Dry camping

......3) Electric - Generator, solar, or combination of both....... We are able to comfortably dry camp with our two 6-volt batteries for up to a week. No solar or generator necessary.

RE: Help me understand California Turnouts

I have been driving these same roads in Northern California since about 1970. Most of the higher traffic 2-lane roads will provide marked turnouts every so often to allow faster vehicles to get by. And passing lanes every so often. But every so often, when there is a lot of traffic, it doesn't take long for a string of cars to find me. The problem with wanting to get off the road to allow passing in these situations is that I will normally drive slower to spot the turnouts. So it is counter productive to look for a safe turnout after every curve. I have not encountered too many 2-lane roads where ample passing/turnouts are not available.

RE: 14 day meal planning

We will plan for, and pack up to about a week of meals at a time. Then it's time for a trip to the store, laundromat, dump station, battery charger and water refill. Our freezer is full when we plan for a week.

RE: Need recommendations please

We much prefer the out of the way Forest Service campgrounds out west. We only weekend (no retirement yet) but purchased the shortest 5er we could that still gave us the extra room with a living room slide. Our current 25 footer still has problems maneuvering in and around the more secluded campgrounds. A 40 footer, no way. The way I see it, The longer the rig, the fewer out of the way places you will fit.

RE: Leveling- Slide In or Out?

We actually put the slide out near the end of our setup process. Easier to chock and lift the tires, and run the utilities. I will however, consider the slide when leveling side to side. Many times I can't get it exactly level and I will put the slop so my left (slide side) is a bit higher, rather than lower than the other side.

RE: X-Chocks vs, Regular Chocks

I have used the X-chocks for about 8 years now. My biggest issue with the regular chocks is when I lift the tires to level side to side and put them on boards. sometimes the regular chocks don't seat too well. And I use them to lock the front to back rocking. I don't care what the safety manual says. Anytime you're parked on a tongue low campsite you can bet the guy on the site behind you will care ... and if your rig ever does let go because it hasn't been properly secured you can bet you too will suddenly care. :R Well, it hasn't happened yet sound guy, and I surely have better things to do than worry about my neighbor's rig rolling towards me.

RE: OK, this is weird. Our TT is haunted?

Sounds like you've lived in Westwood just a bit too long.:B

RE: Rinse hose at dump station has no threads

.......... My experience shows that just dumping the black tank leaves residue......... I am in total agreement. And this point may be where all the differences arise. For me, residue left in the black tank is okay, and I don't worry about it.

RE: ? "Best" Coffee Maker?

My reply would be anything that doesn't require a generator to make.

RE: Making an offer question

I always prefer competition for my dollar. It helps to have a second, or even a third choice from the dealer's competition. Some may say that a low-ball offer isn't good negotiating (I do it always), but the way I look at it is their original sticker price is their "high-ball" starting point. And I always keep in mind that I can get up and walk (over to the next dealer). If the dealer knows that you really want THAT rig, they have the upper hand in the negotiating process, IMHO

RE: Rinse hose at dump station has no threads

As far as I can tell, the water tower hose and it's use is very specific for public health reasons. The hose is for rinsing your drain hose and to rinse off the drain pad area if any spill occurred. I would not attempt to change it's intended use. Is this Jake? :)

RE: REEFER: Common Practices

We go out every 3-4 weeks starting in May. We turn it off, wipe it down and leave it open between trips. The frig looks and smells new. This is what we do also.

RE: side to side leveling without TV

I use a 1' long torpedo level on my counter to determine how much to raise a side to get it level. I will raise one end of the torpedo up and see how far off the counter it is. If it's 1/8" up I will multiply that by the width of my rig (or the distance between tires) and that will be the thickness of the block so there is no need to re-measure once the blocks are put in.

RE: Potable Water Etiquette

It's first come first serve. I always hook . early bird gets the worm. It didn't take an emoticon to see that you are a real jokester. Good one. :B
