RE: Measurement of Length

I meant that the actual total is 37 ft and the specs call out 32ft for the entire length. I didn't mean to infer that the model number means anything but a code. so.......... On the spec sheet it states that the RV should measure 32’ overall OUTSIDE ?? And it actually measures 37’ ??

RE: Measurement of Length

When dealing with fifth wheels, the number in the model is just that, ONLY A NUMBER.. our 38RL is 41’5” Someone once told me that the number in the model # represents the inside living length, but really don’t care to measure. Heck, my BIL’s Jayco 33 is close to 38’ long....

RE: Rv Awning Replacement Myrtle Beach sc

There used to be a place called Coastal RV that went from campground to campground doing repairs. I used to see that in Myrtle Beach Travel Park all the time, just not sure if they are still in business.

RE: Can you fill a water tank at Pilot/FJ or anywhere else?

Will you be staying at the Flying J overnight? Or will you stay at a campground for 1 night? We would generally try to stay at at least one campground so we can FLUSH all the pink stuff really well, and fill up if need be.

RE: Battery bank in 5er

I have 2 of the 12V Lifeline group 31 AGM batteries wired in parallel. I do not do a whole lot of boondocking, but when I do, I run the generator to charge the batteries if need be.

RE: When did boondocking become weird?

It is called progression/progress... Way back when, the campers were small, and nimble, as the years pass they got larger. They got larger for a reason... DEMAND.. It is called supply and demand.. The countries ENTIRE infrastructure has had to adjust.. Look at all the highways, here on the east coast in order to travel through Philly, you had to exit off of 95 and take side roads for a few miles because 95 was not complete. I am sure that the folks that lived where 95 is now were mad at the time, then they GOT OVER IT... America is about choices... Some of us choose to go BIG, some choose to stay small... Its OUR choice.. And we do not disrespect others for not agreeing with us..

You missed it then. I did. But I thought the Simpsons' story of the behemoth was kinda cute. Collateral damage. GREAT REMARK ! ! ! :B

RE: sarasota beachfront

Not too much there... WAY too many hotels and condo's.. The closest I know of is Sun & Fun in Sarasota... It is maybe 3 miles from the beach ??

RE: PDI During Winter Question

Does anyone think I would have any issues having them put fresh water in the system for the night with the heat on through the night so we can test and use everything? The underbelly is heated so don't think would be an issue for one night since only going to mid 20's thoughts? What part of PA are you ? IF the night is only down to the mid 20's and the daytime high is above freezing, you SHOULD be ok.. BUT in my part of PA, SE portion ( Bucks County ) there is a small window this week- Monday hi-33 low-26 . Tues hi-42 low-30 . wed hi-34 low-20 thur hi-38 low-23. .Fri hi-41 low- 27.. NOW NEXT WEEK is better . . . Sunday 1/21 hi-53 low 39 . mon hi-60 low- 37 . tue hi 47 low-29 . wed hi-47 low-34 . thur hi-46 low-35

RE: PDI During Winter Question

I too would ask to have the unit inside their building with ALL the water systems energized.. Once done, they would have to winterize again.. it's a small price for them for a sale...

RE: When did boondocking become weird?

So far, MY " behemoth " as you call them has stayed at the following- The Florida Keys at $110.00 a night A campground in Mid PA at $25.00 a night An open field at $0.00 a night A parking lot or 2 at $0.00 a night ** and everywhere in between.. We have made friends at ALL the places we have stayed at.. not because of what they drive or tow, or what they look like, where they stay, what kind of camping they call it..... But because they were nice people. I am no better or worse than anyone else, I am no poorer, or richer than the next guy.. I could care less what others do with their money or RV's.. Put us all in the same room, and MOST of us will come out of there with new friendships with all kinds of people, rich, poor, white, black, boondocker, resort folks. Basically, Who the HE*$ cares what makes up others, if they are nice people, call them friends. And you may want to stop judging.

RE: NOCO G 7200 Battery minder

I have since received a response from the manufacturer...- "The unit can be used in temps down to -4?. When it is below 32? we simply want to use the cold/AGM setting as opposed to the 12V norm, to better condition the battery in colder temps" Thanks for the feedback !

RE: NOCO G 7200 Battery minder

Thanks for the replies so far.. My batteries are and were at 100% when the G7200 was put on them.. I am using it as a maintainer only. The battery shut off is "OFF " so there is no draw on the batteries, and charging will/should be minimal . . Hopefully I will hear back from NOCO shortly..

RE: When did boondocking become weird?

It’s called jealousy, and living with blinders on their eyes, the poster will never admit that. 10 pages of folks trying to defend what they do and why they do it to a bunch of strangers..... BRAVO ! I WILL take my “Bohemiath” as they stated to the Campground and enjoy myself, my family, and my friends... priceless. . . . Please do! And feel free to camp next to me in my spartan little camper. I bet we'll both have a great trip regardless of the other's dependence upon hookups. Will do ! after all, its not the size that matters, its the fun you have while doing it.. I will even keep the beer cold without ice !

NOCO G 7200 Battery minder

Well, for years I have been using my old reliable Battery Minder in my Bats over the winter.. This past summer I replaced my batteries with 2 Lifeline group 31 AGM batteries, while chatting with the folks at lifeline, they recommended the NOCO G7200 battery minder. I ordered online and it’s now hooked up and looking good, with 1 question?? While reading the instructions, it says not to use under the 32 degree mark?? I called NOCO, and emailed their help line several times with no answers, anyone here have any history with NOCO, will I be ok? I am in the North East, and temps are usually in the low 30’s as a high, and usually in the teens or 20’s . .

RE: When did boondocking become weird?

I really don't give a **** what it is called... Or what others want to do... I do what makes my family and myself happy . . Camping - Glamping - RVing - Boondocking - , I really don't care... Its my time, my vacation, my RV. I will call it what I want, when I want. That is the beauty of having an RV, IT HAS WHEELS... If you don't like it somewhere, MOVE IT..
