RE: Why did you decide to get an rv?

Real simple.......My wife despised pit toilets.

RE: Oregon Coast vacation

I would look at Reserve America and see how full the Oregon SP's are during the time of your travel. If they seem to be getting full, you may want to reserve. But they may might not be too full yet - it's still early in the season. Cape Blanco is first come and during the week, even in the summer, we can find a good spot.

RE: Oregon Coast vacation

Confusion already. Hwy 101 is the route to take all the way up to gold Beach. I would stay away from Hwy 1. We prefer to stay in one spot a minimum of 2 days and generally 3 days for these types of trips.

RE: Dangers of campground lot ownership

well my fingerprint sensor unlock on my new smart phone doesn't work right so I wouldn't trust one at the gate. bumpy Took about 3 days for my thumb to work right in accessing my Iphone after using & working with wood putty out in my shop. :)

RE: quick question

Did you get multiple quotes for comparison? This is how we do it. And if all the quotes feel like we're getting gouged, then I make the decision to hire one of them, do it myself, or leave the trees there. Simple

RE: Free Water

I look for the dump stations. Around here, they all have fresh water just past the dump.

RE: How about a Forum for all the California Haters?

......I do believe there are actually two California's.. North and South. Almost like two different worlds. Mike Yep, and for some of us south begins about just south of Redding. :)

RE: Private RV lot

We camp on our property in Oregon and the zoning allows us to stay a certain amount of time. We thought of putting in utilities but the monthly fees for having those utilities, even without using them, was outrageous. So we dry camp.

RE: Where are you NOT camping this summer.

Not going camping where people will be running their generators......to make coffee or run their microwaves. I can't hear the forest environment with all the racket.

RE: Understanding battery usage and capacity

I have 2 6-volt batteries and I also measured the amps each of my 12v appliances used. Those measurements at least gave me an idea of where my major battery draws would come from. My goal was to be able to dry camp for as long as possible without having to charge my batteries and also to keep my batteries above 50-percent SOC. We changed out all our lights to LED and we now can run off battery power for up to a week. I would use my volt meter at the batteries every day or so to test the current voltage. The voltage reading is how I would determine the percent of SOC (I taped the standard chart to my battery compartment). The week use is spending most of our time outside, not using the furnace, basically just the frig on LPG, water pump and LED lights. My process is not very scientific but my Trojan batteries are still going strong going into our 9th year.

RE: 1st trip in the "new" RV

We have been camping for over 30 years, while raising our family and experiencing different types of environments. Our type of camping has evolved over the years. We always make lists for things to bring "next time" and that list comes and goes too. In those 30 years I can only remember once "needing" anything right then and there. That was an electrical adapter for the power pedestal. And they had them available at the camp store. Enjoy

RE: RV Parks You Love Then You Hate Them You Need Them

They don't care because they are not in the RV park business. They generally are there to camp not to analyze. Most do not know the ins and outs of the CG business and don't pretend to. Should we scrutinize the business model of every business we patronize? I go camping to escape the rat race plain and simple. I have no desire to scrutinize,dissect or analyze anything other than a cold beer and a camp fire. I have gone through my entire life scrutinizing just about everything within my direct environment. I look at the detail of how something works. And I will analyze that process. Most of the time I do not share my conclusions, especially since they are probably wrong, but none the less, I still do it. :)

RE: Northern California in late May

With knowing what I know in this area, if I was going from Las Vegas to Crescent city with a stop in Reno and Yosemite, I would go to Reno, then come around to the west entrance to Yosemite. Then I would get over to I-5 and take 20 over to 101 and up the coast. Many places that cater to RV's.

RE: RV Parks You Love Then You Hate Them You Need Them

The biggest issue I see is the co-mingling of the two different types of folks that normally stay in an RV park. You have the traveling types like Old-Biscuit that use the RV park as "a place to park rig while we went about exploring, adventuring, sight seeing". And you have the folks that live at that RV park full time with no plans of moving on. I understand the reasons for having monthly tenants but these two types of RVers may often have completely different social values while occupying the same space. One small example that I see: The person living in the park with no plans of moving on may not think the leash law applies to them, only the overnighters.. JMHO

RE: Camping with the dogs

All the beaches in the north state allow dogs that I'm aware of. Some of the state parks do not allow dogs on the more popular trails. All the Forest Service trails allow dogs that I recall. All on leash, of course. We go places where our dog can go too. We find put first. Nope. There are a few dog-friendly beaches in Northern California. But many do not allow dogs on the beach (some due to the nesting habits of the snowy plover). If I start at clam beach in Mckinleyville and go north, I can't think of any non-dog friendly beaches. Of course, my view of California is that south of Eureka is Central California. :)

RE: Generator questions

In our neck of the woods, we call it LW, it stands for last word. Let's see who really needs to get it. :)

RE: Bad electrical connection between trailer and truck

Never had a problem with any of the specific pin connections. I wiggle the plug while pushing it in and the spring loaded cover has a lip on it and is intended to keep it from backing out.

RE: Needing a spare tailgate

A couple of 2x's would work seated inside and the pressure from the sand should keep them in place.

RE: Towing a full profile fifth?

First thing I did was measure the actual clearance. Then I wrote it down and put that info on my sun visor. When we travel around the more minor roads, I will look up as well as everywhere else. It becomes part of your driving process.
