RE: Winging it at Quartzite?

Smiley Als on Main - great pizza and beer. Join the Yacht Club on Main for $20 for life, good beer and have access to other yacht clubs.

RE: Winging it at Quartzite?

88 Shades has FHU, normally $26/night. You will likely find most CGs are already fully reserved in Jan/Feb for the show. Plenty of BLM land. We've also stayed at Greasewood in Jan right at 95 and Main, about $9/night dry. How long are you staying?

RE: CELL PHONE SIGNAL BOOSTER? REALLY?

Yes they work and you can spend up to $400. I have a older 3G Wilson amplifier that is not mobile. It overloads if the RV is near a tower in which case I don't need it anyway. Consider installation before purchase. I have a non directional antenna on the rear roof, then amp and indoor antenna which must be 20' from the outdoor antenna. Lots of options and lots of threads on this subject.

RE: Is 360 hp enough for for 38-40 ft class A

1HP/100lbs is adequate but not a rocket ship. Expect 45MPH on sustained 6% grade.

RE: First Road Trip San Jose, CA to Austin, TX

OK you have a plan. Sure hope that this trip is successful and helps DD.

RE: First Road Trip San Jose, CA to Austin, TX

Overheating on grades: Slow down, gear down, AC off, lights etc off unless night, heater on full heat. If necessary stop and use fast idle.

RE: First Road Trip San Jose, CA to Austin, TX

Leave early, 152, 5, 210, 10. Midday LA only, never rush hour and 55 MPH in CA. You can roll at 75 MPH in AZ. Is your rig, tires, etc ready for that speed? Avoid Phoenix and Tucson rush hours. If you're traveling when warm/hot hows the engine cooling and A/C? If overheating occurs on grade do you know what to do?

RE: is it water damage?

When is soft soft? When good wood gets wet for a short period of time the surface may be a little softer than normal and when dried will be OK. You seem to be describing dry rot which occurs when wood is wet for a period of time AND there is no air circulation. Think covered floors, walls, etc. Drying doesn't help as the wood is compromised. And if glues are involved then trust me RVs don't use water proof glues...

RE: is it water damage?

The resins I've used are not clay like. They are very thin and penetrating. They also require a lot of holes to be drilled for penetration. From prior posts I agree that job is likely much more than a weekend job.

RE: is it water damage?

Even dry it's sill structually compromised. Depending upon what, where and how much there are resins that can be used for repair.

RE: How many RV batteries is to much for a trip

With an inverter you can run appliances on the batteries except the AC.
CA Traveler 10/18/14 11:38am Class A Motorhomes
RE: How many RV batteries is to much for a trip

Are the 2 outside for the chassis and the 2 inside for the house? For your first trip don't remove any and see how it goes. At some point have the batteries load tested to get a much better indication of their condition, normally free. Are the inside batteries flooded and vented?

RE: Cost of staying connected.......

We just returned from a trip around the country and up to Alaska....For too many of those days we were devoid of any contact with the digital world. While at home it cost around 300 bucks a month for cable, internet, and cell phone service........I am thinking I can reduce that cost by going with satellite tv and a different cell service plus a mobile hot spot. I think these options would work great at home but am not sure about how they would work out while traveling. I just need to reduce our costs.......Some real life experiences would be appreciated.....In Canada we add phone only service to Verizon for $15/month. Cell towers are limited on the Alaskan Highway. We only had internet service when we could get WiFi which was often limited and marginal on the Alaskan Highway. AT&T service in Canada is $$$ so that phone was turned off. No issues with Verizon phone and MiFi in the US including Alaska. Generally Verizon has better service than AT&T for us. We take our home DirecTV receiver with us in the rig. AT&T smart phone on our sons account: $40 Verizon smart phone and MiFi: $147 DirecTV: $75 So about $225/mth for one smart phone, MiFi and DirecTV. Plus the one time cost of rig setup for DirecTV.

RE: Roll Call Alaska 2015

Another sign option is to make a 11x17 image and have it printed and laminated for about $4 at a USP store or elsewhere. We're currently in the process of using this method for a club logo with suction cups. BTW The above sign worked out well until we went through a car wash after returning!

RE: Roll Call Alaska 2015

Most in 2013 had 8.5x11 signs which can be easy to overlook. I also used $1 poster board on the toad with the added benefit that several people saw the car and we chatted. We looked up several folks as we all posted where we were staying. No real rules, just use this board to help establish contacts. We meet 9 others from rv.net and talking was a nice diversion. http://i369.photobucket.com/albums/oo134/catraveler/IMG_0668_s_zpsedc35132.jpg

RE: Black tank question

They are working as designed: 1. Cheap 2. The salesman explains how you have these great monitors If the FW sensor works OK then use it for a good estimate of tank levels by not using city water, just the pump.

RE: Is killing batteries three times too much?

I always charge them just before I leave when I should be charging them as soon as I get home.You should charge them both when you get home and before leaving. And have the batteries load tested so that you know their condition rather than guess.

RE: Electrical Power Issue

Do you have a transfer switch in the rig as it could also be the problem?
CA Traveler 10/09/14 09:44am Tech Issues
RE: Electrical Power Issue

Good suggestions above. If turning off the RV CBs doesn't isolate the problem then disconnect the wiring from the protector and track down the short from there. It could be the cord, protector, connectors or other wiring.
CA Traveler 10/09/14 09:40am Tech Issues
RE: Electrical Power Issue

The breaker that is being blown is in the house panel and controls that circuit."House panel" as in the rig? Normally "surge protector" which usually is a full house protector is located ahead of the rigs CB panel and apparently you have a downstream problem. What make and model "surge protector" do you have? Being hardwired I would assume it's wired prior to the CB panel - is it?
