RE: What a new husband is learning while RVing Fulltime

My spouse are coming up on 60 year of married bliss in 58 days. Fifty four years of those we have been RV'ers. Took me 6 years to convince her that we needed an RV!

RE: Time to get serious. Sold TT and got a new RAM.

I think potential truck camper RVers focus too much on waste tank capacities. I have been out 13 times this year in my Wolf Creek and have never had to dump my tanks because they were full. The fact of the matter is a high percentage of your camping will not be in the in the back country without dump facilities. You may want to think they will be but I can assure you that they won.t be. Many of you live in areas where that is not possible. I live in an area where boondocking is a reality and I am always able to get to a dump facility if I need one. The moral of the story is "be realistic in your demands". What you dream about doing and what you are actually able to do are entirely different.

RE: Water tank pj

This method that I use now is a bit difficult to explain but those of you who can visualize will catch on quickly. I must admit this is not a new method and I picked it up on some RV forum. Using a water container(7 gal container) and the winterizing, place the hose you would normally use to supply RV antifreeze to your pump in the water container. Turn the valve on. Go outside to your outdoor shower and remove the shower hose. Replace shower hose with a length of hose that will reach your input area where you fill your tanks. Turn the outside shower cold water valve on. Go back inside your RV and turn on the pump. This method will pump water out of your water container through your system into your onboard water tank.

RE: Hiking Snowbirds

This is a very nice Arizona State park with several nice hikes. Catalina Also Gilbert Ray campground on the west side of Tucson has several hikes out of the park.

RE: Water tank pj

That seems like a lot of money for a tank. Might be fine if it were installed somewhere in the camper. My tank is 35 gallons and I have never run out where I needed more water reserve. When I had a trailer I did carry a 7 gal tank of water and used a small pump I purchased at HF to pump the water into the holding tank. Way less money than you are talking about.

RE: RMNP

If you are intent on quiet and private you won't find it in RMNP. Unless they are able to pave the main road into Moraine P:ark it will be very busy and quite dusty as it was this fall. Generators are allowed in RMNP campgrounds. These conditions are not unusual in most national parks. They are all busy,

RE: fastguns at full length?

You can get a coupler at your local hardware store along with a 1/2 inch threaded rod. You can cut the threaded rod to the required length.

RE: GM overstates 2014 tow ratings by almost 25%

Better research on your part would have indicated that a 308 ratio is inadequate for towing a trailer of the size you have.

RE: Another truck and camper match question...

You will be at a loaded weight of close to 3000 lbs by the time you ready to travel especially with bikes and such. Any 2500 series pickup is going to require some suspension mods regardless of what make it is. I would recommend a 3500 series and if you do decide to go to a larger camper you won't be sorry.

RE: Satellite TV

I find that setting up HDTV is much easier than setting up SD. I line up satellite 101 using signal meter on the DirectTV menu and my inline signal meter. If your signal strength is 90+ on 101 you should be good on the other two channels you need for HDTV.

RE: New guy here needs help

Are we to assume this is not to be a full time way of life? You will need to consider a TC that has heated tanks and is rated as a four season camper I would think.

RE: Up coming trip to Wyoming

A great location and very friendly management. Within walking distance of museum.

RE: Will my 2014 F250 need overloads?

I would guess you will need StableLoads or additional spring support. Might check into Timbrens also. I would first load the camper and see what the result is first.

RE: Vernal to Estes Park (and/or Denver)

The most scenic route is Hwy40 and Hwy34 to Estes Park. It is very hard to beat the scenery over Trail Ridge Road.

RE: Colorado Camping in August 2014

What CG are you at with the lake in the background? I am at Stillwater Campground, On account of the Beetle kill the campground has been clear cut but the views are great. There are electric sites available if you like and a dump station. There are a lot of activities to keep one busy also. Thanks and it's good to see the lake is full. I've stayed there before and will be there next week. We like Grand Lake much better than Estes Park. Glad most do not agree with that. You are correct, Estes Park is a joke if you are looking for a laid back vacation. The only time you can be assured of a RV spot in the RMNP is at the stroke of midnight on Jan 1st each year. Way too many people for me and my taste.

Colorado Camping in August 2014

I recently made another truck camping trip to one of the very beautiful areas of Colorado on the west side of Rocky Mountain Nat'l Park. I will share some photos I took while enjoying one of my several camping trips of 2014. Hope you enjoy them. CoroladoCamping 2014 1mtnman

RE: Well!!! Huh?

Everyday away from doing what you had planned or wanted to do is a day wasted. Good health is a wonderful thing and one never knows how long it will last. Too many people fall into that money trap and find out too late nothing can replace those dreams you had for your future.
