RE: Testing ability to start new thread -- very spotty problem?!

The answer is yes -- I can start a new topic here but not on Tech. Very odd. Edit: (See next post for description of the problem.) Nope. Could not even post a response to my own thread.

Testing ability to start new thread -- very spotty problem?!

Can't start a new topic on the Tech forum -- trying to see if it is forum-specific. Edit: (See below -- it is not specific to any forum, but it is intermittent.)

RE: Taking my ATV to Alaska? Is it worth it?

Kidoo, the other advantage of an SUV is that it has hard sides to protect you from bears when you are out in remote areas. ;) Bonne chance!

RE: how do I stop hung clothes flying off rod when traveling

Our hanging closet is so small that our clothing is jammed in there like sardines -- no risk of anything moving without a lot of effort on our part! So that is an option -- overfill the little closet?

RE: Lyndhurst, NJ- Paranoid locals call Homeland Security on RV!

NIck, I bet you'd figure out how to call them if Howdy Doody showed up in your neighborhood in an old RV, with lotion leaking out onto the street. Yikes!

RE: Redwoods to Yosemite

In Williams, try the sandwiches at Granzella's, too -- really good.

RE: Bought a Lend A hand handle and have a couple of questions.

Aluminum siding is easier to drill into than fiberglass -- less risk of cracking. Maybe the manufacturer can tell you where the studs are?

RE: Lyndhurst, NJ- Paranoid locals call Homeland Security on RV!

Stefonius, I gotta say I am mystified. Buffalo Bob was the host of Howdy Doody Time. (I would bet there are quite a few folks on this forum who remember that show.) I don't remember the part about the lotion . . . .

RE: HWY 395 Barstow to Carson City

On second thought, there is something else to do at night in Bishop -- drive up to Lake Sabrina (rhymes with Carolina) and look at the stars: http://i.imgur.com/YHE4X8Rl.jpg "border=0" http://bit.ly/1CIRlV8 This was a time exposure taken by moonlight -- you can actually see the gold aspens toward the bottom of the shot -- this was in early October.

RE: HWY 395 Barstow to Carson City

Coolbreeze asked what there is to do around Bishop for three nights. Honestly, at night, there is not much going on -- there is a movie theater and some good home cookin' type restaurants. But during the day, there is a lot to do -- many days' worth. The whole Bishop Creek area (once the roads are plowed) provides world-class hiking, with trailheads that start at 9500 feet and go up from there! The Ancient Bristlecone Forest is about an hour away up in the White Mountains. Lots of great campgrounds (and boondocking) in the area, great fishing (I don't fish), or even just great "let's drive around and look at those amazing mountains." For example, this was taken from the road to Bishop Creek: http://i.imgur.com/4UQWUAbl.jpg "border=0" http://bit.ly/1CIRlV8

RE: First time West,best route fron Grand Canyon, Yosemite etc.

Tioga Pass is not a problem with a big rig. Nice wide road. If you have to use turnouts, there are plenty available.

RE: First time West,best route fron Grand Canyon, Yosemite etc.

Your timing is great -- Tioga Pass just opened! Here is an idea -- after Vegas and Death Valley, go up 395 to Lee Vining. Stay there (Mono Vista) and take your toad up to Tuolumne Meadows. Then take 120 across to whichever RV park you choose, using your toad to commute into Yosemite. The campgrounds inside the park are probably already booked up -- but maybe not? No hookups in the park, though. From there, head to Three Rivers (Sequoia RV Ranch?) and use your toad to get up 198 to the Giant Forest area in Sequoia.

RE: Awning Sun Protection

I use a long piece of vinyl rain gutter --it fits over the rolled up awning. I tie it onto the awning roll with a short cord -- have to climb up on a stepladder to do that. It works great, I think. Be sure to remove the gutter before you hit the road. I learned that the hard way.

RE: Finding water while boon docking

We bring five extra six gallon plastic jugs -- so we have 60 gal. in total -- 30 in the trailer, 30 in the jugs. Ranger stations often have water, if you ask very nicely and maybe buy a map, too!

RE: How long should battery minder take, in conditioning mode?

Mex's point about the strength of the lattice is very interesting. I wish we could persuade the manufacturers to jump in here and offer their thoughts, but I doubt that is going to happen.

RE: How long should battery minder take, in conditioning mode?

I was hoping someone with more knowledge would do the research for me -- I am lazy. But I stumbled onto a useful article: Pulse rehabs truly dead batteries -- field test The article is about car batteries, not deep cycle. And it talks about rehabbing a dead battery, not maintaining a good one. And it does not mention AGMs. So there is a lot of wiggle room here. But this article gives me hope that the pulse is not a complete waste of money. I also did a search for lawsuits involving the Batteryminder that involve claims of fraud. I came up empty. So evidently the plaintiffs' lawyers, who are always on the lookout for class action fodder, have steered clear of this product. Absence of evidence is not necessarily evidence of absence, but in this case it might be.

RE: Sequoia and Kings Canyon campground recomaditions

On second thought, Lodgepole can be pretty nice, especially in the winter -- this shot was taken in November: http://i.imgur.com/kqKEHNfl.jpg "border=0" http://bit.ly/1CIRlV8 (Note to self -- when "snow flurries" are predicted, retract the awning fully before the storm hits.)
