RE: Portable gas can rant, and a really good solution

The "Jerry Can" which was originally introduced by the Germans prior to World War II is the best design out there. It is still available and is NATO approved. With a CARB approved spout it is also CARB compliant. The lever lock cap will not leak a drop. Here's a link to one source: http://www.roverparts.com/Parts/JC3009 http://www.roverparts.com/product/img/Icn/JC3009.jpg The spout I have is not one of the CARB approved ones so I don't know how well the CARB one functions. I carry a 2 1/2 gallon version of this and have been pleased with it. Keeping a separate nozzle & cap are a bit of a pain, but at least you can pour from it into small gas tanks...

RE: AC (alt current) Waveforms and THD for gens and inverter

Thanks for this. Glad to see someone updating waveform information. Here is a couple more examples of waveforms for a couple devices: Observations on the quality of power produced by various backup devices

RE: Interstates safer than "Blue Highways?"

While I depend pretty heavily on finding internet service (I post daily to a journal of my trips & maintain a RV related website, as well as keep up with many RV & photography forums) if I decided where to drive depending on cell service I would have skipped most of the best parts of the US & Canada. While the interstates and most US highways have cell service, you will find far more interesting scenery, attractions, and people by getting out into the "back country" on county roads.

RE: Interstates safer than "Blue Highways?"

Charles Kuralt said it best: "Thanks to the interstate highway system, it is possible to travel coast to coast and not see a thing." Actually, it was better said years before by John Steinbeck: "When we get these thruways across the whole country, as we will and must, it will be possible to drive from New York to California without seeing a single thing."

RE: I-90 alternative thru New York

US 20 is OK, although lots of rolling hills. I usually cross upstate NY on NY 3 & NY 104. Definitely slower than I 90, but it is more interesting & ends up in Niagara Falls. Part of it is the Seaway Trail. 2 lane most of the way with the usual small towns along the way. You might want to loop around Rochester rather than drive through it.

RE: Roof Top Solar connector part number needed

Getting back to the OP's original question - a good source for SAE connectors, including surface mount & connectors with #12 wire is SolarSeller.com. Up to you whether you use them or a better connector...

RE: Minivan towing 16' Scamp

I have had 3 Chrysler Minivans, and all had transmission problems without towing, although I've been told the newer ones hold up better. I still would not attempt it without the tow package. I have friends that tow a Scamp 16 with a Sienna minivan (with tow package) & we made a trip to Alaska last June with no problems...

RE: Chairs instead of a dinette

Back again. I am looking for an ultra light trailer and I find that most dinettes are just uncomfortable and would prefer two chairs I see the Escape has a bed in back and a dinette in front. Does anyone know if you can remove it and install chairs or does it cover the water tank? If the Escape you are describing is the 17, I removed the front cushions & replaced them with West Marine High Back Chairs. Far more comfortable, although you lose the ability to make the table into a single bed. By the way, the West Marine High Back Chairs are on sale at 1/2 price until July 24th. A very versatile chair - I've taken it out & used it on picnic tables, it back packs & can be used on bleachers, and folds flat to form a very short bed - kids, not adults. To see one of the chairs in the Escape, go to 2013 Modifications, and scroll down. As to the water tanks, the fresh tank in behind the axle, but the black tank is under the front driver's side bench (in the 17). It doesn't take up the entire space, but enough of it that a floor mounted chair would be difficult.

RE: Navajo Nation Attractions

While a bit more of a difficult hike than "House on Fire" at Mule Canyon, Fallen Roof Ruin in Road Canyon along Cigarette Springs Road off UT 261 is an interesting ruin. http://www.lakeshoreimages.com/images377/_DSC2332.jpg width=640 Depending which way you go leaving the area, Goblin Valley State Park has interesting formations, and a slot canyon (Little Wild Horse Canyon) nearby. My last visit.

RE: Travel plans to visit National Parks

If you want the typical Vegas experience in Las Vegas, there are a number of in city campgrounds, however if you want something closer to a National Park, be sure to spend a night or two at the Valley of Fire State Park, about 75 miles northeast of Vegas. Two campgrounds, one primitive & the other with water & electric. Bathrooms with hot showers. No reservations. Some very interesting hikes within the park, or just drive by beautiful formations. Some photos from my last visit.

RE: Odd forum behaviour when trying to reply to a post

I have the same problem (end up with "failed to open page) when making a post that includes an image and a link at the rv.net portal. No problem if I switch to the travel trailer portal. This post was done at rv.net, so it must have something to do with the image or link...

RE: Fall Road Trip Up the East Coast

One of my favorite Fall hikes is along the 22 waterfalls and hundreds of cascades in Ricketts Glen State Park in northeastern Pennsylvania. If you visit, come in from the North. Entering from the South requires climbing a 4 mile, 18% grade between Red Rock & the park. There are two campgrounds in the park, although only one is usually open in October. No hookups, but bathrooms with hot showers. More photos from a couple of my visits. A cascade along the waterfall trail. http://lakeshoreimages.com/images147/ASE_1209.jpg width=640

RE: Changing Odometer/Trip from km to miles - Need Help

I had a class A configured for the Canadian market, so with speedometer in km rather than miles. Rather than fuss with it I used my Garmin with the display showing speeds and odometers. Worked great for the 50,000 miles I ran that rig. Another advantage of using the Garmin is when you go back to Canada on a trip it is easy to change back (or, on some models, it will automatically give you MPH rather than Km when you cross the border). As to keeping track of the miles driven, it shouldn't be impossible to explain the odometer is in Km to the DMV. They even managed to convert kilograms to pounds when I registered my trailer (NY charges by weight).

RE: Just switched new Verizion Plan

I'm sticking with my converted Millenicom hotspot - $100.07 per month for 20GB, can be suspended for $10.00 per month. It doesn't make sense for me to switch to a shared phone/data plan since my phone is on AT&T with unlimited data.
vermilye 07/08/16 08:49am Technology Corner

If you are planning to visit Crater Lake, there is another great waterfall area (6 or 7 waterfalls on short hikes) along OR 138 - Some Photos. I've stayed at the Susan Creek BLM Campground (no hookups, but hot showers) & Joseph Stewart State Park. If you are in the Joseph Stewart State Park area at the right time (I was there in early July), the Cole River Fish Hatchery is going full bore - an interesting stop: Photos at the Hatchery.

RE: New England RV parks in the fall

One of the websites I use to check fall color dates is the Foliage Network. They provide weekly (or more often during the season) updates, ad well as historic data which is useful for planning. While not New England, if you are in the area, Ricketts Glen State Park in Pennsylvania is my favorite place for fall colors. Around 7 miles of trail along 21 waterfalls & many cascades. There is dry camping in the park (bathrooms with hot showers). Some Photos. If you go, the best way into the park is from the north. If you come from the south, the road between Red Rock & the park includes a 4 mile, 18% grade uphill haul...

RE: Scangauge has made me paranoid?

If your Scangauge makes you paranoid looking at coolant, just wait until you program it for transmission temperature!
