RE: Dometic RM2852 problem

May I suggest you take a photo of the wire connections before you remove any wires. Makes it a lot easier putting then back in proper order. Live and learn.

RE: Purchasing a MH using an escrow service & insurance ques

Many scams to remove dollars from your pocket. How did you find this bargain? EBay, Craigslist, some other online sales. There are many cases of high priced merchandise, cars, RV's being offered at bargain prices that don't exist, at least by the person offering it for sale. It's easy to copy a picture of a vehicle and offer it for sale. Best to find a buyer out of state and ask for a deposit to hold it till they can come and check it out. Once the money is transferred it's gone, gone gone. You feeling lucky?

RE: Left over 2014

I was still referring to my 98 Ford as my new truck shortly before buying our 09 F350.

RE: Adding Washer & Dryer

We added one when we purchased our fifthwheel. It had a closet for one but only had 120AC receptacle, plumbing and venting had to be installed.

RE: ? "Best" Bird ID Book?

Wife is been birding last 5 years her favorite is "Peterson" Field Guide to Birds of North America. We have besides Peterson, Sibley Guide to Birds, Kaufman Field Guide to Birds of North America, and Golden Field Guide, From St. Martin Press, Birds of North America. She also has the I-Bird app on her Android phone, which is also a very good resource auto updates with photographs and also has bird calls and bird songs. Good because often you have a better chance identifying birds by song or call than visual.

RE: looking for summer workamping in MONTANA

Hi there, we own a bar called the Halfway House Bar and Grill (www.hwhmt.com) and are looking for a camper/worker. We are located on Bull Lake, which is about 15 miles outside of Troy (about 160 miles from Missoula). The bar sits on 10.5 acres and hosts a whole line-up of events over the summer. We do have full RV hook-ups. The position we are looking to fill will be primarily for a short order cook. If interested, please pm me -thanks HWHMT, you might want to start your own thread instead of adding your offer in an existing one which has more or less run its course.

RE: Strict schedule or flexible travel out west

We're fulltimers the last 5 years. We thought reservations were necessary, there not. If you want to ensure that the park you want absolutely has a site for you, you may want to make them. We volunteer during the "season" so our site is provided. Our travel is during the off season, after Labor Day and before Memorial Day. Since you plan on August-October travels I would say if there's someplace you really want to be before Labor Day make a reservation. After Labor Day play it day by day.

RE: What do you do with your time while full-timing

We volunteer 9 mos of the year mostly for USF&W refuges though we have volunteered at state parks, USACE parks and USFS. We usually work 20-24 hrs each per week same schedules. Although some work is mundane and more so as camp hosts our work with FWS has been interesting and educational. We have led canoe and kayak trips, been interpretive hosts at tidepools on the Oregon coast. DW setup and ran tour for handicapped on a 8 passenger golf cart. Other volunteers we have met have banded birds, tagged horseshoe crabs, assisted with other biological surveys. There really are so many opportunities to keep occupied while fulltiming and so much to see and do in the various regions of the country we'll have to keep doing it for a long long time.

RE: Issue Backing into Camping Spot

Five years fulltiming sometimes I look like a pro others like a newbie. Some days are diamonds and some days are stone.

RE: honda eu 3000is

The nice part of using 2 EU2000i's instead of a EU3000iS is the weight difference. 2 EU2000i's dry weight is 98 pounds whereas the EU3000iS is 134 pounds. I hate to say it but I ain't the man I once was. I can carry the 2000's one in each hand to balance the load with no problem.

RE: Favorite Camping Location

Our favorite is Ecola SP Oregon which is a day use park but we were volunteers in one of the two sites for volunteers. Besides a site overlooking the ocean with elk munching DW's flowers, there's Haystack Rock, and the town of Cannon Beach, which has retained it's charm.

Offhand I'd say your batteries were bad.

RE: Traveling With the Propane On

I travel with the propane on all the time, and there is very little danger beyond what traveling with a tank of gasoline, or diesel fuel. Do what you want if you are worried about it. Fred. X2. Also, either the author doesn't know how a PP system works or he's misleading people for his own agenda. If you suddenly have a large leak, the tank's valve will shut off flow. That's why we see so many posts here where someone filled up with PP but now has no flow. You have to open the valve slowly or it thinks there's a massive leak. Really your in more danger just driving, or flying and there's a better chance you'll be hit by lightening. While winning the lottery. Been hit by lightning I'm still here and towing with propane on.

RE: Ford F-350 PS DRW Towing

What year Ford are you looking at? Here is a place to get the towing guides for each year. http://www.fleet.ford.com/towing-guides/ Why are you specific about the 3.73:1 rear axle, while not specific about the model year? If you will be buying used, you will get what they ordered, not what you want, unless it is the same as the installed several years ago. Good luck! Fred. I was looking for preowned prior to 2011 but their towing capacities aren't as much as the 2011 and up. 3:73's for a little economy. Forget about economy, there isn't any towing. My 09 has 3.73 and as far a capacity are you talking GVW or GCVW? I'm under on all axles truck and trailer, under truck GVW by 500# but over Fords recommended GCVW. If your really concerned look for a pre 2011 F450 with 4:10's and figure that's the cost to play.

RE: Ford F-350 PS DRW Towing

Truck in sig which is fully optioned out has 13,000 gvw. Ready to tow full fuel, hitch, DW and dog it weighs 9,300 which allows 3,700 for pin wt. Actual pin wt. on 5er 3,200. Without 4x4 you would pickup more payload.
