RE: Hooked up overnight

When we're traveling we seldom unhook unless we need to level front to back.

RE: refrig. defrosting

If you have a residential fridge it is most likely self defrosting don't know of a 2 way that is. Depending on the humidity we defrost the fridge twice a year. We are presently at 8100 ft with low humidity freezer is starting to grow some frost in the rear may defrost next week before we head to the flatlands. Adverage humidity up here is around 20 percent though days about 80 degrees temps with 15 percent humidity and nights in the high 40's with humidity in mid 30's.

RE: Do you use TV hookups at the parks you stay at?

Is your park a destination or pass through? If one night stop we use park cable instead of setting up satellite. If destination spot, I set up satellite. That's what we do more than one night pull out the dish but we are fulltimers.

RE: On the road Aug 19 - 23 Traffic Volume (Eclipse)

We're having a number of visitors at Arapaho NWR on C125 just south of Walden, CO that are northbound to Mondays eclipse. DW just coming in for lunch from her bird viewing station on the Wildlife Loop said there were 40 NB vehicles in the 4mile SB trip to to the visitor center. Much more traffic than usual.

RE: Grand Design vs. Keystone vs. Big Horn

We're in the process of purchasing a new fiver. We've seen them all over the last few years unfortunatly with consolidation of manufactures the ones we liked have been dropped. Looked over the Grand Design but couldn't find a floor plan we could agree on. The two we had as top contenders were the Big Horn and Arctic Fox. After spending an hour or more going over a AF 35-5 DW didn't care for the layout so we were down to one but not quite yet. We've now decided move up to the same floor plan as in the BH but in a Landmark 365. For us/me the larger carry capasity is important and DW likes the finish much better although there are some things she still likes about the BH better. I keep telling her there is no perfect RV and she/we are already makeing plans for the upgrades. Gotta keep the DW happy.

RE: School me on heated tanks and enclosed underbelly stuff

Some rvs have heated tanks by the propane furnace some have electric pads some have both. If your hooked up to electric and not paying for the electric that's the way to go even if you have propane furnace ducted heated tanks. If your boondocking you better run the furnace to keep the tanks liquid. We only have ducted heated tanks and have never boondocked but if the temps are headed south of freezing we make sure the furnace is ready to go.

RE: RV Cable Issues

RE: Heat pump or propane

We use the heat pump till the forcast is below 35degrees. We only have one AC in the living room but it's ducted. We're ordering a new 5er with two ACs but only getting heat pump on the living area. Seems like the BR is always warmer anyway.

RE: Solar Panels

We're in the same spot. Going to order a new Landmark with residential fridge and that has been my question. Seems like there is no easy answer. Depends on whether you like sunshine or shade. If boondocking, what other electric draws will you be running. It does seem these new RV's use LEDs for most of the lighting so depending on you night time vision needs that's a plus. We're not boondockers but we have drycamped a night or two and from what I understand two nights without running much more than necessaries two 12vt battteries will hold you over and allow enough power to run your slides and leveling. So the question is how big of a battery bank you want, then match the solar to keep it charged.

RE: Going full time

DW and I were both widowed we had two houses to dispose of and all the accumulation of two different lives. She told her DD's to come and take what they wanted and had them take a few things to hold for her for when we find it time to come off the road. Then because she had a hard time it fell on me to finish the job. We didn't bother with yard sales it all went to local charities or a dumpster. A year later it was my turn. No kids but several nieces and nephews just starting out and a few trips to goodwill I was done.

RE: A shoe by any other name

I've never had that problem on this fourm. I do have a problem on another RV fourm. They changed servers and I guess it didn't go smooth so everytime I try to login I get a 401 your not allowed access. Thought I was going to have to register as a new user but found if I went back to the to the login page and then hit fourm I could get in. It doesn't matter what I'm using notebook, phone or tablet.

RE: How to Go From Parks Coax Cable Into HDMI of TV Set

You got it just connect to the ant connection on your TV. You'll have to go to the menue and change from ant to cable, then go to auto search to get your cable channels.
