RE: Do You Hang Lights From Your Awning?

Not for us. Makes it harder to see the stars.

RE: Generator/s

You may find that you can enjoy some dry camping without a generator at all. Understanding the 12-volt system helped me conserve and dry camp for up to 6 days without a battery recharge.

RE: Leaving water in fresh water tank

I will only drain mine if I think it came from a questionable source and that it may not be properly purified.

RE: Help-Water Tank Won't Drain

Do you have a manual low point drain either along the bottom or bottom side of the tank?

RE: Winter battery care

Our temps get down to around zero in the winter, and I leave my 2 6-volts in the battery compartment in the 5er. We may have the rig plugged in at different times during the winter but since the float charge from the converter doesn't seem to work real well, I will keep the batteries disconnected with my disconnect switch - after getting a full charge. About once a month I will check the voltage and if it drops I will connect and charge through the converter for about 24 hours. Last winter I only needed to charge them up just once.

RE: 12 volt coffee maker

We use a percolator also. Wonder if that basic technology is becoming a lost art?

Using your generator to defrost some bagels while in Yosemite?

RE: How to avoid bad campgrounds

I have seen more than a few RV Parks that ultimately evolve into trailer parks. I can understand the economics. When I stay at one of these types of parks, and I step in dog poop as I first get out of my truck, it's difficult to keep an open mind on the situation.

RE: Dual Trojans and furnace

My Furnace fan uses 6.7ah while in use. I have a pair of Trojan T105's and used the furnace for about a half hour in the morning for 2 straight days and that is not much, in itself, for about 110 ah available.

RE: Plugged up Black tank

I have never had a problem of wondering if the black tank is truly empty or not. But if I did, I think I would first stick some wire either up or down into the tank and listen for any splashing around - if possible. Or put some cotton on a string and drop it down the toilet and raise it up quickly to see if it's sopping wet. Two access points to investigate.

RE: my black water drain...

Sure can't see how the black tank could drain without the use of a valve. One big mess each time the cap is removed.

RE: Park Models RV or Not?

When park models first came put, their design was specifically to keep the MH standards out of the mix. It only seems to take time for the gov to catch up and regain power on these sorts of issues.

RE: 97 from Toppenish, WA to Klamath Falls

Hwy 97 from Bend south through Klamath Falls is on the back side of the Cascades and in higher elevations. When it does snow in this area, it can be a bit nasty. If no storms coming through, it should be okay. At least with weather forecasting technologies now a days, you can keep track of the storms and also check the traffic cams located along the way to see how they look.

RE: Building a cover for future TT

In many jurisdictions, any structure of this nature would require it to be engineered. A structural engineer can give you many options.

RE: Do Ice Cubes in the RV Black Tank Really Work?

I saw that video also. The test was to see if the ice cubes could break up a dried up pile of poop from the bottom of the black tank. And the results indicated that the ice cubes were no more effective than plain water. I will use left over ice cubes in the black tank on the ride home after a dump and I will notice more junk come out, but not from a dried pyramid. I wished the you tube guy would have used the ice in the black tank rinsing tests he had done earlier. I keep saying that the ice cubes work but apparently some people thought that I may have meant that they work at removing the dried pyramid.

RE: low point drains using antifreeze

My low point drain lines are visible from one of my storage compartments and they do fill with the pink stuff even though I do not open them like a faucet. However, they are the last valves I close prior to pumping the pink stuff.

RE: Simple Step Light Mod

Good idea. Thanx for sharing.

RE: Do you use an outside TV?

Sounds like a good idea for the RV park crowd.

RE: Importance of Providing Cable TV

I would at least provide the extra conduit in the common trench. You can decide later if costs prohibit it now. And with technology the way it is, that conduit may be handy for some new utility in the future.
