RE: Another question about solar

Spend more time reading on here, in the Tech section. Then you'd know that's a crock.

RE: Testing new photo posting

Quote my post to see the code that works. You have too many img tags. You successfully used photobucket last year. http://i.imgur.com/XUsNQ7Fl.jpg

RE: Did I Just Fry My Appliances?

or just opinions on what happened would be fine!You ran 220v into the TV. Sorry you didn't have your meter with you to verify what you were feeding the 5er, or ask here first, or flip the breakers in the RV before turning that 'bad boy' loose.

I'm hoping we'll get a response, or this gets fixed soon. I need to look something up from that time period.

RE: Is it really too far to walk to the bathroom at a rest area?

Wouldn't those truckers keep better time if they just dump the can out the window while still haulin' down the highway, then there would be no need to stop at all?If you mean dumping just the piss, that isn't easy. My experience dumping any liquid from a container is that a lot of it comes right back in your face..or sprays all over the side of the vehicle... the piss bottles - I've never seen nor met anyone who does or has admitted to doing thatI see them when I take a 'ranch' exit (little used) from the freeway to take a leak in my RV toilet. For the longest time I wondered what all these bottles with yellow liquid in them were. It never occurred to me that people would do such a thing. Gross.

RE: Is it really too far to walk to the bathroom at a rest area?

I know people who have expensive rigs who see nothing wrong with taking a wizz wherever they want. I'm sure that's true. But, as with most problems, it's the degree to which people do things. Given what I've witnessed, I have to conclude that the ratio of rvers to truckers, who throw piss bottles or urinate in parking lots, is very low.

RE: Snobbish RV resorts with ownerships

it is another goal of mine to never live in a place where I am surrounded by them. I could not imagine a much worse life. I've found that the oldsters break rules too.. probably the ones they don't like. A favorite spot of ours has a couple big swim pools. As you may know, most older people do not swim, they stand and visit, and they do not like swimmers disturbing them. The resort recognized this problem, and designated one section as a swim area.. complete with painted lanes. Folks still congregate there and talk, and to do any lap swimming you often have to force your way through them a couple times before they realize they're in a swim area. Go figure.

RE: Is it really too far to walk to the bathroom at a rest area?

the truth is, there are folks in EVERY category doing it.You can be sure I'll report on here if I EVER see an RVer get out of his Class A and take a leak in the parking lot.

RE: Boondocking communities other than Q and Slabs?

Do different places attract different types of people?Oh yeah. The Q attracts a mostly civilized crowd of retirees. The Slabs attracts those who are one SS check away from homelessness.

RE: Snobbish RV resorts with ownerships

Is this what we have to look forward to? Are all these ownership parks the same?Probably. No, but some senior citizens are. With nothing to do all day but watch other people, some of these folks can get pretty picky.

RE: Is it really too far to walk to the bathroom at a rest area?

And why are OTR truck drivers to blame?Evidence. I stopped at Peggy Sue's restaurant near Barstow. Watched as an OTR driver gets out of the cab, walks to the rear of the truck, checks to see if anyone's looking (not that it matters) pulls it out and pisses on a palm tree, then walks into the restaurant. No disability there. I was parked in the asphalt RV lot at Spotlight 29 casino Palm Springs. Trucker pulls in to the RV lot (not the truck lot), gets out and stands on the running board, pulls it out and leaks right there in front of all of us. Most rest stop truck-parking areas reek of urine, also dirt truck lots in almost any town. They also toss bottles of urine out on lesser-used freeway off-ramps. I can't speak for ALL of them, but in my experience, they're pigs.

If you join the Boondocker's BOF in Escapees (SKP) they probably know all the best info.Their "Day's End" reference is invaluable for boondock travelling.

RE: Solar Array - 12v & 24v concurrently?

Also you might run out of wire! :)And you'll need help figuring out how to connect all that wire! Be sure you have a VOM at your side.

RE: Solar Array - 12v & 24v concurrently?

No, you cannot simply add a 24v panel in parallel to a 12v existing array. Google: mixing solar panels
