RE: Champion on propane

Shutting off the propane to stop was the way they were demoing it at Quartzsite...

RE: las vegas

has anyone stayed at a campground in or around las vegas? if so what was the name of it and was it a good place to stay? thanks Bob Depends on how close you consider "around". One of my favorite campgrounds when in the area is Valley of Fire State Park, about 70 miles northeast of the park. Some water & electric sites, bathrooms with showers, all first come. Lots of beautiful scenery, hikes, etc. Some photos from my visits. A typical hook up site: http://www.lakeshoreimages.com/images99/ASC_8719.jpg width=640

RE: Tired of Key West

You might check out Cedar Key, although it may be too far north for you...

RE: Federal & State campgrounds: Max rig size?

With a 40' RV, it isn't so much that you can't fit, but that you will have a limited number of sites large enough, or will be limited to the "parking lot" type sites. The larger you are, the more limited the availability, and, if traveling without reservations, the earlier you will need to arrive. Even with my 17' trailer, I ended up in a site (at Burney Falls State Park in CA) that I had to park my tow vehicle off site. Site photos of many of the National & State Parks are available at CampsitePhotos which may be helpful in determining whether you will fit.

RE: Cortana Users, Do You..............

You guys "thank" your phone? Weird. Only fair since I'm sure you sometimes swear at it!

RE: Cedar Breaks is Newest Dark Sky Park

I have no idea what Toyota considers too hot for the RAV4, but 266 degrees is too much for me. While I liked the RAV4 for a number of reasons (and hated it for others), I now tow with a 2016 Tacoma Off Road. Typical towing transmission temperature is 194 degrees, with the highest I've hit is 228 on a very long, slow climb.

RE: Cedar Breaks is Newest Dark Sky Park

I towed my Escape 17B (3010 lbs loaded) to Cedar Breaks on UT 143 & hit the highest transmission temperature the RAV4 had experienced (266 degrees, but no warning light). Parts of the climb was down to 1st gear...

RE: Cedar Breaks is Newest Dark Sky Park

Have to agree - Utah is my favorite "dark" state (actually, one of my favorites, period.) Death Valley is now designated as a Dark Sky Park", and parts of it is dark, but here is an 31 minute image at the Texas Springs (no generators) campground that shows how much light there is from the campers: http://lakeshoreimages.com/images579/_DSC8283.jpg width=640

RE: Roads I love

Utah 128 a nice and beautiful short cut from 1-70 to Moab. While a beautiful drive, I'm not so sure I'd call it a "short cut". My favorite time on the UT 128 was when I ran into a cattle drive down the middle of it. Even with the cowboys urging me on, it took almost a hour to get through the cows, and my RAV4 smelled like a barn for weeks!

RE: Roads I love

You got it! More photos at Crystal Mill Visit http://www.lakeshoreimages.com/images212/ASF_2451.jpg height=480 Jon, Did you do the run to Crystal Mill in the CRV? That Granite probably cut the tires to pieces! Bill I wouldn't have tried in the RAV4; friends who spend lots of time off roading in the Leadville area had an older Toyota 4 Runner. Now I'm towing with a Tacoma Off Road - I might give it a try next time I'm in the area.

RE: East to West

Another "away from the freeways" route, at least in the summer is US2. I've driven across the US on all the interstates & most of the older US routes, and 2 is my favorite. Mixed sections of 2 & 4 lane roads, interesting small towns along the way. If you arrive at Glacier National Park after the Going to the Sun Road is open (usually late June or early July) be sure to drive through the park. You can't take your Class A, but if you don't have a towed vehicle, there are shuttles or better yet (but more expensive) one of the red Jammers for the drive through the park.

RE: Scenic Route from NYC to Indian Lake, NY to Saranac Lake NY

I'd pick up NY 28 as far south as possible; a pretty road through the Catskills as well as in the Adirondacks. Lots of small towns, lots of twists & turns, and mostly 2 lane. You wouldn't want to pull a large trailer, but a fun drive. If you need a walmart, check the larger cities such as Oneonta. As mbopp says, you won't find any in the Adirondacks...

RE: Suggestions on traveling in Wyoming

I always wanted to check out Devils Tower in northeast corner of Wyoming. It can be pretty impressive at night: http://lakeshoreimages.com/images396/_DSC4749-Edit.jpg width=640

RE: Dueling Solar Controllers?

Why not bypass the controller on the portable panel & feed it into the input of the SC2030? I have 195 watts on the roof that feed a Blue Sky 30 controller & added a port to the trailer that feeds the input to the Blue Sky controller. I use the port to connect a 160 watt portable with an additional connector that bypasses the portable panel's onboard controller. A Trimetric 2025 keeps track of total in & out for the batteries. My reason was I wanted the Blue Sky controller to show all the solar panel current & amp hours - If you don't feed all the panels into it, you won't have accurate readings of the amount of energy collected. Also, if both panels don't go through the TriMetric 2030, that info will also not be accurate.

RE: Grand Canyon to Window Rock - Navajo Nation areas

As a photographer, you will appreciate taking the photo tour of the Upper Antelope Canyon rather than the standard one. You have more time & more opportunities to shoot the canyon without others in the picture. Some general information & more photos. http://lakeshoreimages.com/images96/ASC_7694.jpg width=640

RE: Back-up Camera By Rear View Safety

I don't know about their wireless systems, but the wired system I used with my trailer was the sharpest I've seen.
