RE: Building & Installing my BBQ Table

Nice ....I prefer simple..... I prefer simple also......But while I'm thinking of keeping something simple, I also feel I'm being lazy. Ah yes, the campin' season. :)

RE: We finally took the plunge

We normally don't put water down there first unless I feel that having water sloshing around a bit while traveling might clean the surfaces. Especially if we are getting ready for an extended trip without the ability to drain the black tank regularly. A few flushes of #1 normally precede the #2's on most all out trips.

RE: Trailer Weight vs Truck Capacity (I know, I know....)

The biggest safety feature I noticed in comparing my old F150 and the new F250 was the brakes. Big difference. Huge difference in power also.

RE: Removing the Dining Room Table in 5th wheel

If I was to remove the table but at the same time consider resale, I would remove it and save it.

RE: The RV Name Game or How to Traumatize Your Customer

I liked Chris's response. Not being judgmental. Just seems the OP and those agreeing with him take things way too seriously. Sort of like the kid who got suspended for making his Pop-Tart look like a gun during lunch. I was enjoying Chris's response too. And it made complete sense regarding the "Ride with a Vengeance". It was that last sentence that was personal in nature that could have been omitted. This has been a fun thread until people get personal.JMHO.

RE: The RV Name Game or How to Traumatize Your Customer

The "edgy" names are most often attached to toy haulers. It's been that way for a long time.I was thinking the same thing, almost all those names mentioned are for toyhaulers. I guess it's supposed to bring out the macho/manliness in you. :) Yep. Noticed the same thing for quite a few years about toy haulers. Great marketing. Who is your target purchaser? Waiting to see a toy hauler named "Fluffy".

RE: Any Country Western Fans in Medford Oregon?

For the majority of RVers going, it is dry camping.......most likely in some big open field or parking lot.

RE: Best Northern California Spot with 40ft 5th

Thanks to those that replied so far. Great info! I will be visiting the Forest Service and BLM to get updated maps of the areas described. The ones I have are all 20+ years old from my hunting and woodcutting days. I was looking in Amazon and they have a book called Camping With the Corps of Engineers. Anyone know if that is good for the type of spots I'm looking for? Again, thanks in advance. Army Corp of Engineer sites are usually developed campgrounds associated with dams and reservoirs. Not familiar with any ACOE camping areas in this part of the state.

RE: Any Country Western Fans in Medford Oregon?

I believe that's the premier package that gets you VIP seats, meet and greet, and the RV is right there real close. Similar to the last couple of years when the concert was held near Port Orford, Oregon. I would find an RV park nearby and purchase general admission seats if the price sounds too high.

RE: Batteries

The operating manual for my converter indicates that the converter will work just fine while disconnected with the battery. And I do disconnect mine while on shore power for more than a couple days. If I don't, the batteries seem to require adding water once in a while. But when disconnected, the batteries sit there just fine.

RE: Around the Campfire - litterally!

Not for me. If I tried it, I'm sure the whole thing would take off and have a real rip roaring fire going. Always taught to keep potential fuels away from the current one.

RE: Best Northern California Spot with 40ft 5th

That campground is in a state of disrepair. Gets very little use, a few people during hunting season. I fully expect the Forest Service to eliminate it in a few years, pull out all the facilities and just leave it as a dispersed camping site. Continue past it to the end of the road inside the National Park, and you find the NPS Butte Lake CG. Much nicer. Nothing to repair. Those types of campgrounds started out just as dispersed camping areas, like many up that way, and the Forest Service took them over so they could regulate. Don't see them going back in the other direction. Butte Lake is not at all like boondocking, like the OP requested.

RE: Best Northern California Spot with 40ft 5th

Okay, I will give you one spot. Butte Creek Campground, Lassen National Forest. Yes I know, you said boondocking. Trust me. It is boondocking with a picnic table and fire pit.

RE: Tips for choosing and planning your campgrounds

Just love the websites that put a pop up right in the middle of the screen without any way of closing it. haha- sarcasm much? Sorry about that, not sure why that happened...not suppose to do that but I'll check it out :) should be a little "x" to get out of it. ALSO, once you close it should never pop up again :/ Yes. Once the pop up leaves, I will be able to read and see what your talking about.

RE: Cedar Creek Secret Cable Switch

Our rig doesn't have a switch for the cable vs antenna. When shore cable is plugged in, we get cable. when we use the antenna, we push the button as talked about above. That is the secret button that we're talking about here! Ah, yes the button vs a secret switch. Wonder if the shore cable would work with the antenna booster button activated?

RE: Asked and Answered

This is not exact, it is only based on my general observations. After dry camping for 7 days, my 6v battery bank of 225a were down to about 50 percent, or down about 110a. Drove home which took about 9 hours. After resting the batteries over night, they read 6.4v which for me that is close to 100 percent, or a gain of about 110a. Not scientific, full of errors, but good enough info for me to understand what my system needs to keep traveling and dry camping. I realize this doesn't answer your specific question, but this is what I can offer.

RE: National Parks and the Lack of Adequate # of Camp Sites

Sometimes the cost to improve or expand is higher than we think. In general, many campgrounds are maxed out on the visitors/campers versus number of bathrooms/showers required. The sewer system may be maxed out also. So, increasing the number of camping spaces could have a domino effect all the way to the sewer ponds. I do agree that increasing the number of camping spaces may also trigger a new environmental assessment and sometimes it's just not worth it. If they made all the parking lots larger, made all the roads divided highways, the park would have more people than they can handle.IMHO

RE: Recommendations for small 5th wheel

We are very happy with our 25footer. But crossroads doesn't make our model any more. We zip around parking lots and gas stations and fit into many more primitive camp spots. We will do everything we can to maintain this unit because it fits us just perfect.
