RE: Trailer trash !

Yes, just because you may have the "Law" on your side, the bottom line is that he is your neighbor and he can make your stay miserable if he really wants to. I would try and appease him without giving in too much.

RE: Help with retracting slide out

Our rig has a manual way of moving the slide and it is located on the opposite side of the rig from the slide.

RE: What Was She Thinking?

Taking that first step off the curb and onto the street without concern of who is driving by and knowing that any oncoming vehicles will have to slam on the brakes to avoid an accident, is that same attitude that I see everywhere nowadays. It's all about "me". Skrew everybody else. IMHO. I see it all the time, and when those feet are off the sidewalk, I stop. But so often, if the pedestrian would stop and take a look before entering the cross walk, they may see that there is nobody behind me for blocks and if they just stay on the curb for 3 more seconds, everyone would be happy.

RE: 114 in weed Ca

20 is a piece of cake compared to 299. Both are nice routes for us. I think 20 to 101 up to Arcata would be quicker than I-5 to Redding then west.

RE: Outdoor Kitchen to Storage Conversion

Sure, keep the frig part of the old layout........:). Any thoughts about securing the contents so they don't fall out of the shelves after travel?

RE: 114 in weed Ca

Right now, if I was going from Stockton to the central Oregon coast, and with the heat wave, I would take hwy 20 over to 101 and get to the coast where the temps will be much cooler.

RE: Good Black flush "trick" or bad idea?

I do this routinely. It floods the black tank with grey water which is good for cleaning and lubrication. For those of us who use a SaniCon Macerator, we can do this every time we dump without removing/lifting the hose. When boon docking, we can also flow grey water into the black tank when the grey water is getting full. If you want to do what you're doing without lifting your hose in the air, buy one of these. Drain Valve I don't have room for another valve. Wish I did. The valve looks like it has the standard half turn connection, just like your clear fitting. Sounds like you could attach it to that clear fitting and just connect it with all the other fittings when you dump.

RE: grey and black water tanks

I'm not clear either what you're asking as "boondocking" is generally accepted to mean camping out in the middle of nowhere with no resources of any kind immediately available as they would be in an organized campground where you may be "dry camping" but where fresh water and dump station facilities are available somewhere nearby. Those are two entirely different scenarios that require two entirely different approaches to sourcing fresh potable water and disposing of grey / black water. Which is it you're talking about? :h Boondocking or dry camping? Does it really matter? Of course it matters. :S If you're boondocking well away from any source of resupply you have to have a workable plan as to how you're going to manage your valuable fresh water supply without running out and when necessary how you're going to get rid of unwanted grey / black water. In comparison, if we're dry camping in a provincial park, state park, conservation area, COE park, etc, fresh potable water and facilities to dispose of grey / black water are almost always located within the campground. BIG difference. :R :S :h Hey, this topic looks like it's debatable. :B If I have to leave my camp spot to go to the dump station, It doesn't matter if that dump station is a quarter mile or 10 miles away. I will have had to break camp in either case. Why does every topic or question posted here end up with a ":h" at the end of your comments? It doesn't have to be so difficult, IMHO. :)

RE: Reviews on OLDER/USED RVs?

Yes, certain brands may hold up better if you were able to compare similar living, RVing, camping, and maintenance situations. But a high end RV, not maintained, allowed to leak, and heavily used, isn't worth much at all. I would just look real close at any possible purchase. Top, bottom, and everything in between.

With our 60gal fresh, 40gal black, and 40gal grey, the 2 of us, while in conserve mode can stay away from the dump station for about 7 days.

RE: RV Chicago to San Francisco

The interstates were designed for truck traffic and that is what you will see. A lot of trucks. And the grades were also designed for those same trucks. Not too steep. My advise is on a steep decline, use intermediate gears and take them slow, and not sitting on your brakes all the way down. And going up the hills, just take your time, the loaded trucks will be going slow also.

RE: Campsite Length Restrictions for MH

"the number of available campsites start dropping when you reach 35 feet". IMHO, the number of available campsites start dropping as you increase in any length. But that availability depends on where you prefer to camp. Many of our favorite FS Campgrounds have limitations with our 25 footer.

RE: Rear skid plate bent on fifth wheel

A bar welded between the two skid plates could do even more damage if it scrapes the ground.

RE: Not sure of the logic

We have had Park developer clients that requested a design that included nose forward Class A sites along a lake front. A TT or 5er would not have fit.

RE: Current draw from refrigerator.

Our frig draws 0.30 amps while n LPG. It also has a switch to do something that I keep turned off. I heard it uses some juice.

RE: Rv full time

I first checked around on what different trucks would pull and load, and for the cost. Then we went and bought a 5er we liked while understanding it's weight requirements. Then, we bought the truck. Worked for us.

RE: fire ban

You can make smores and hotdogs over a small propane cook stove. If that is allowed. Me, I'm glad to be anywhere there is NOT a campfire. 6 years full timing and I have yet to meet a camper that knows how to build a smokeless campfire. Or more importantly one that knows how to extinguish a campfire before they go to bed. So others don't gag to death from the smoke coming into their RV all night long.:(Seems to me you shouldn't be a camper. The normal camping lifestyle is entirely opposite of what you seek. That's like being a chef that hates cooking; destined to be totally miserable. Who the **** are you to tell me whether I should be RV'ing? :R Perhaps you should TAKE THE TIME to "READ" the post. Clearly states about campers that do NOT know how to build a clean campground fire and do NOT know how to put them out properly. The above discussion shows me that people intermix the words "RVing" and "Camping". They are 2 different animals, IMHO. We will drive by a sign that says, "Camping, next right", and all I see is a trailer park that has a couple of RV spaces available. I wish the sign would have read, "RVing, next right".

RE: PLEASE HELP! Batteries are not operating rig

Well, I figured it out. The 30 AMP fuse at the battery was blown. Not sure how that happened. Also, I tested that fuse earlier and got a good reading. Crazy! We're all good now. Thanks!!!! Appreciate you coming back on here to post the specific issue and fix. So many people don't have the curtesy to do that.

RE: Water pump

I turn it off while on the road, or away from the RV for any length of time. The rest of the time it's on. Yep, that is our process also.

RE: fire ban

Over the recent past, and during high fire hazard conditions, the FS campgrounds around our neck of the woods still allowed fires in established campgrounds. The emphasis was to put the fire dead out when you retire for the night.
