RE: Yellowstone National Park, the journey ends!

RE: Leaving camper unoccupied - help

For the people that think this practice is just fine, and don't see any problems, I would guess they have never gone up to their favorite lake towards the end of the week only to find all the first come first serve lakefront FS campground spaces "taken" and nobody around. Very selfish, IMHO. How is it "selfish" if the campground permits it. That's a selfish comment if you ask me. If the owners, state , county, takes your money and has no issue with it, why would someone care what others think? Their profits and costs to run their business trumps worrying about someone jaded because of their policy. We'll be dropping of our MH after the 4th for a month in a resort in a premium lot. We won't be there the whole time either. 2 weeks and a long weekend. As a matter of fact the resort asked for our business. The same applies to any campground that permits it. If it bothers people, maybe buying your own campground would give you a better understanding of the costs to operate it. For what it's worth our state parks here in Michigan are booked for the summer within the first three months. Advanced reservations. Some could say that isn't fair to those who don't have the luxury of planning ahead. Yes, and those same people that came up to the lake early to drop off their rig along the lakefront sites, and then leave and come back late Friday afternoon would make the same statement as yourself. Not surprising to me.

RE: Use home sewer cleanout as dump station?

In our jurisdiction the sewer line is my responsibility once it comes on to my property. It would be completely legal to dump MY black take into a bunch of buckets and walk them into my bathroom and dump each one into the toilet. Just because a cleanout (located on my property) was constructed for a different purpose, using it to dump MY sewage makes complete sense. It is, BTW, my sewage. The only problem is if we for some reason greatly increased the normal sewage flows from our single family house. A sewer drop located within a frost zone is not a problem. You just want to make sure you can get the sewage to the main line (located below the frost zone) before it sits there and has the chance of freezing.

RE: Favorite scenic drive?

I just did a general internet google search entitled, "Scenic Routes" and got enough reading material that would keep me busy for a long time.

RE: Why do we keep paying more??

We will get noticed often of increases in goods and services. What I just love is when the notice indicates, "your annual rate for service will be adjusted this upcoming year". They don't have the bowls to say the word "increase".

RE: Why RV different than house?

And the extra weight. We see what is called "park models" that are built more like houses and are not meant to be rolling down the road. The membranes on RV's nowadays are similar to flat roofs you would see on many commercial buildings. And these membranes are a big improvement from the rv roofs of yesteryear, IMHO

RE: Tank monitor question

So rinsing the grey tank means just filling with water, then dumping, repeat, repeat? I don't even fill them all the way. Last rinse without driving around required 6 gal to get the gray tank sensor to work and 2 rinses on the black tank. The first was a rinse of 12 gal, then a second of 18 gal and the sensor was working again. I also purchased a clear plastic elbow to see how clean the drain water looks. Only use it at home for the rinsing.

RE: Oregon Hiway 42 from Winston to Coos Bay?

Very curvy,, and close. your best is I-5 to the Yoncalla cutoff just down the hill/Rice hill, Hwy 796 to 38 the 38 is a good road and better condition. Second option is to continue to the Hwy 38 cut off Drain ,off I-5. Take care. Chuck Host at Sunset Bay ST park Wow, good example of differing opinions. We look forward to getting off I-5 to enjoy the beauty of hwy 42.

RE: Tank monitor question

I will use the sensor lights to tell me when the tanks are rinsed enough. Most of the time after dumping, my black tank sensor will read full. I will fill and re-dump until it registers empty. Last trip the gray tank sensor light indicated it was 1/3 full - after the dump. That had never happened before. Only the black tank. And after one rinse, the gray was "clean enough". It is at that time I am done with the rinsing.

RE: Mountain roads from Oregon to Reno

Pretty general, but here goes. I would leave Oregon on 101 south, then take 199, I-5, 89, 44, 36, and 395. A few summits involved, but not too many "high mountain passes".

RE: Decrease step rise.

I am surprised a company would install steps that don't have a consistent rise from beginning to end (Finish Floor). I would not fiddle with decreasing the rise of the last step. You just make the next step a problem.

RE: I should'a got a bigger trailer

Those are the same guys I passed going up and over Siskiyou Summit, that passed me going down the other side.

RE: Having troublemaking reservations

Amazes me that so many people didn't see the joke. Gotta have a sense of humor to go with that common sense, or life just might be a bit boring. :)

RE: How to patch small hole in roof

Our rubber roof had a small tear in it and I placed some self leveling dicor sealant on it in 2008 and has held up just fine.

RE: Do not use awnings in heavy rain?????? Really???

.........If you followed everything in the manual, you wouldn't leave the driveway and I think the manufacturer prefers you don't, or they might have to warranty something. Yes, does anybody consider using a bit of common sense? If I strictly followed every manufacturer's safety precautions, warnings or advise, we would never go campin' again. Or anything else, for that matter. I guess we could just blindly follow what our leaders tell us to.

RE: Roof vent to far away to reach.

There are different types of handles, but I would make a fitting for the handle and put it on a short length of an old broom stick.

RE: Brand new battery dies quickly

You need to learn about 12v power consumption. Yep, very handy indeed.

RE: How many turns on Awning Springs?

You could consider the circumference of the tube and the length of awning fabric, then add a couple more turns.

RE: slider won't close

I felt it important to figure out that scenerio before we even used the rig. I know where the manual crank hole is located, and what tool to use, but have not had to use it yet so I don't know how difficult it will be to turn it manually.
