RE: Best route to Oregon Coast from I-5

The "best route" is Astoria and south. It's the "best" because most of the turnouts are on the ocean side.

RE: Upgraded software PLEASE

Why worry about the data that has been logged on this server? drop it and start anew. you know the questions will get asked time and again, even when it was saved.My approach would be to develop a new website and provide a link to the frozen old website. But apparently website changes are as popular as pulling teeth.

RE: Help! Water sloshing under gel siding

CA Traveler, after a year and a half of doing....nothing? It's a lost cause. Care to wager?I'll wager but in the spirit of sharing a drink and discussion. The first discussion item is "Who has the tallest pole?" I expect to win that one but will lose on the number of flags... And thanks for your service.

RE: Help! Water sloshing under gel siding

Have you carefully checked the inside for moisture? Especially where the wall and floor meet at the delam areas. I would certainly expect that dry rot has already started. If you are going to save this RV you need to get it completely dry and leaks repaired. You are faced with a lot of work or dollars or salvage. If not the latter then immediately get the rig to an enclosed area out of the rain. The formula: moisture + wood + no air circulation = dry rot! :( :( :(

RE: Upgraded software PLEASE

The problem, if I understand correctly, is that unlike virtually every other forum out there, this forum is custom written on a Cold Fusion server on MS IIS. There is a huge amount of data that would have to be migrated to another backend, and it would be non-trivial to do. Pretty much all development on this forum seems to be in the advertising area- and given membership is free,I cannot really complain :)But that doesn't explain why certain characters work on other portals that apparently use the same data base.

RE: Upgraded software PLEASE

The percent change and others were made in Jan 2014 and has been well discussed and fixes requested. But for whatever reason rv.net has not made any updates. So don't blame the messenger, the OP post is accurate.

RE: CB atenna

Dual CB antennas are the best but more directional. A NGP antenna might be OK but expect less range. The best would be to add a metal ground plane for the antenna. On my last rig I mounted the CB antenna to the existing steel frame with SS bolts and that provided a decent ground plane. CB has limited usage these days so consider your needs first. Cell phones are of course very popular and there seems to be an increase in ham radio users.

RE: Solar Switch

Hi CA Traveler, With respect, you may do as you wish with your own RV, but to recommend using an AC switch for a DC circuit is perhaps unwise. For those of you who wish to find out why, follow this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z0QhkuGClMw Yes I know the A/C switch is not DC rated but for my use and application I would expect it to last a very long time. Good that you emphasized that DC causes more arcing. Prior to my post AC vs DC had not been mentioned. But with a 8A DC load I'm not concerned about using a 60A rated steel enclosed A/C disconnect switch.

RE: Solar Switch

Ok, you guys have given me a lot of great ideas, and I appreciate it. One more question, whatever switch I use, should it be on the negative line or the positive line, or does it matter?Doesn't matter but since positive is usually switched that would be my choice for a single switch.

RE: Solar Switch

My 750W solar is 100V @ 8A and I use a HD A/C disconnect switch to disconnect both positive and negative wires. The inside wires have split loom and are located behind cabinet panels. The basement wires are visible and have split loom to the switch and CC. No fuse on the solar wires as one is not needed. The battery side is a 80A surface mount CB. The basement wires are labeled including instructions for switch sequence usage and the switch sequence label is also in the battery compartment. Yes I know the A/C switch is not DC rated but for my use and application I would expect it to last a very long time. But available everywhere for $15.

RE: Tow flat or with dolly?

There is no better, just differences. You only choice seems to be a dolly. A dolly adds weight, storage considerations, longer hookup/unhook and cost less. The vehicle must be able to tow with the rear wheels on the ground. The dolly can tow vehicles that can't be flat towed and adds flexibility on towing different vehicles. Be sure your dolly has brakes. I flat tow and never regretted that decision.

RE: Diesel Generator Shuts Down When A/C turned off and on

My rig has automatic delays - first in the ATS and then the A/Cs.

RE: Astoria Oregon Koa

GKs and GPs will love Astoria. Stay at Ft Stevens or Lewis and Clark Golf and RV park. GO TO THE MARITIME MUSEUM you can even park the rig there. Go across the street to the Bow Picker one of if not the best fish and chip restaurants anywhere. No frills and you will wait in line of course but don't miss it. Then hop on the Astoria river front trolley. Trust me everyone will have a great experience. And the Lewis and Clark Fort and kayak trip is also great.

RE: Declaring VA Domicile

Yup, I pay state tax in CA and AZ.

RE: Declaring VA Domicile

Medical may be significant. What happens when you need help and are out of network? Area and coverage may be different for emergency and non emergency coverage, eyes, dental etc. I'd make sure that any auto insurance is aware of your locations. And you may pay multiple state taxes, depending upon a number of factors. Sounds like you should discuss your situation with a CPA.

RE: Declaring VA Domicile

You are a resident of 1 of 50 states. You will need a mailing address and a PO box may not be acceptable for some companies. So you could start with a mail service. Research your costs etc for FL, TX, SD, etc all of which are popular full time resident states.
CA Traveler 05/18/17 09:04am Beginning RVing
RE: Declaring VA Domicile

Why would the IRS care about your resident state? Your resident state involves voting, drivers license, registration, mail, banks/financial, etc. Plus state, county and city taxes. Since the year is about half over don't make any changes until later in the year when you have more information. Other factors are insurance, medical, cost of living, taxes, etc.

RE: Placement of solar panels on a TT roof.

I like others have raised panels which will allow you better placement and panel performance..
