RE: Interesting Places to see and do

If you are into visiting ruins, I enjoyed Mesa Verde National Park in Colorado. The ranger led walks to the Long house was great. http://lakeshoreimages.com/images166/ASE_9092.jpg width=640 If you are willing to go on your own, my favorite is False Kiva at Canyonlands National Park. Ask for directions at the Islands in the Sky Visitor Center: http://lakeshoreimages.com/images174/ASD_1380.jpg width=640 Two other favorites are in the Cedar Mesa area - House on Fire in Mule Canyon (off UT95 west of Blanding, Utah): http://lakeshoreimages.com/images169/ASD_0133.jpg height=480 and Fallen Roof Ruin in Road Canyon (about 20 miles north of the Moki Dugway off of UT 261): http://lakeshoreimages.com/images377/_DSC2339.jpg width=640 Do an internet search for directions for both of these - they are not on well marked trails...

RE: Eco-Worthy 12v solar panels, Now drifting to... mono vs poly

It might come down to shipping - Solar Blvd is selling a 120 Watt folding panel for $205.00 (does not include shipping).

RE: Posting Pictures?

RV.net does not store your posted images; you can only make a link to them. That means you have to have the photo on a website or otherwise available as a link. There are a number of free photo sharing websites, however no all of them allow links to images stored on them. On Edit - The post above gives directions to a site that you can use...

RE: "Where do you go camping? What do you do?"

Yes. it is. The photo is a composite of 7 images shot in almost random directions & put together in the Photoshop Panorama tool. Previous to this photo I've always tried to level & carefully pan by a minimum of thirds to make a panorama. Never knew that as long as there are identifiable parts in each image, the panorama tool does a great job of matching things up.

RE: "Where do you go camping? What do you do?"

While there are lots of different things I do while traveling, the two main ones are attending fiberglass trailer rallies & photographing some of the most beautiful parts of the country. The Niagara Wine Escape Rally http://lakeshoreimages.com/images407/_DSC4850.jpg width=640 Devils Tower & the Milky Way http://lakeshoreimages.com/images396/_DSC4749-Edit.jpg height=480 More photos on the wrap up page of my last trip.

RE: Outside stereo speakers

The Magnadyne is a very low power unit. The inside cheep speakers do not need much power. If you go with a higher quality speakers it takes more power to drive them to get more volume.Actually, it depends on the design of the speaker cabinet. Some of the most expensive speakers will use far less power for the same sound pressure level as a cheap cabinet. I've used the earphone jack on a pocket sized transistor radio to demonstrate the efficiency of a good bass reflex cabinet - amazing the volume difference between the radio's built in speaker and the 3'X5' 3 way cabinet.

RE: Outside stereo speakers

Like everything else, there are quality differences between brands & models. I can tell you one set of "Outdoor" speakers to avoid - the Pyle PLMR24. While described as "3 way" speakers rated at 200 watts, they are not worth the trouble of hooking them up, and if you fed 200 watts into them, they would explode!

RE: New here...campgrounds that do not allow campfires

I don't know of any app or campground locating web site that filters for campfires, so you are probably going to have to call & check individual campgrounds in the area you find the weather acceptable.

RE: Looking for the perfect place to winter

Check out the area around Parker, AZ on the Colorado River. A wide range of campgrounds from Resorts to County & State parks. I spent a month at the La Paz County Park & loved it.

RE: Millenicom still first choice?

It depends on your data usage. Over 10GB per month is generally less expensive through Millenicom.

RE: Little Canadian CDI takes on ZION

It depends on the time of year. Outside the required shuttle dates (this year it was 4/1 - 10/26) you are allowed to drive your vehicle up Zion Canyon Drive. Whether it is a good idea depends. I was there on March 25th this year, and every parking spot as well as the sides of the road near the normal stops were full of cars. While I could be wrong, I don't believe the photos in this post were taken on the Zion Canyon Drive - maybe UT 9?

RE: Where to mount solar panels on roof?

If you park under a tree or in the shade the solar will not perform as well. Why not get a folding set like these ones http://itechworld.com/collections/solar/products/folding-solar-panel-kit-160-watt I am trying to work out if I should fix the panels or get a folding set that I can move around the trailer and chase the sun. The little kits look like they are only good for charging a phone.Interesting, but I purchased he same folding panel kit from Solar Blvd for $235.00. Unfortunately, they no longer seem to carry it.

RE: Washington State possible new taxes on MH & TT's

I have to say that it would be great to find some better way to fund the Washington State Parks than user fees. As a visitor from out of state, I found them even more expensive than California, and that is saying something.

RE: Best RV parks near Washington, D.C. and New York City?

Another possibility for NYC is Croton Point Park in Croton on Hudson. A bit of a walk to the train station, then a 45 minute ride to Grand Central Station.

RE: Loudon NH to Croton on the Hudson NY

Plan on visiting NYC after the Sept Nascar race in Loudon NH,. Looking at going across Connecticut on I84 then south on NY Rte 9. Will I run across any issues on 9 i.e. low bridges? S I can't help you on the bridges - it has been a 40 years since I've been in the area and I know they have improved Rt 9. I grew up in Croton on Hudson. If you get a chance, drive out to the Croton Dam (without the trailer). An impressive structure with a nice park below. I don't believe you are allowed to drive across it anymore; we used to fly model airplanes off the face of the dam...

RE: House GFI trips when I run MH generator

shore power should NOT be a GFI. 4 wire (50amp) Hot, Hot Net, Gnd) 3 wire (30amp) Hot Net, Gnd and why should/can't shore power be connected to a GFI. doesn't have to be, but nothing prevents one from connecting the shore power to a GFI outlet and if connected it should function properly unless there is a fault. Granted, not many 30A outlets or 240V (4 wire) outlets are GFI, but I routinely connect my 30A trailer to a 20A GFI outlet in the garage and it functions as it should. GFI trips on a fault but otherwise I'm powered up.2X And, you may run into campgrounds that have GFCIs on their 30 amp receptacles. Rare, but I've found 2 of them, both in Missouri State Parks...

RE: Campground search tools

I use AllStays Camp & RV app. It has short descriptions, GPS coordinates, links to park websites, RVpark reviews, etc, and has filtering that lets you look for specific types of campgrounds (as well as Warmarts, LP, etc.

RE: preparing to full time

While full timing is wonderful for many, I'd be sure I plan for what happens when I'm done. Any RV you purchase will depreciate far faster than just about any house - if you put all the results of the house sale into the RV & decide a year or two later that you are tired on the life, what is your plan? Not to be discouraging (I just spent 305 days in a 17' trailer) If you haven't RVed, and can afford it, you might want to try it for a couple of months before selling the house. As 352 states, you may find the limited space & maximum togetherness is more than you bargained for.
