RE: Full time in smaller RV

We have full timed since 04 in a 28' Alpenlite TT. This has included two coast to coast trips as well into Canada. The right trailer makes all the difference. We have two full pass thrus front and back as well as a great deal of storage inside. Just keep looking until you find the one with the combination you need, they are out there, we found one.

RE: Average cargo load for retired couple fulltiming?

Jane, I bought several "totes" (plastic boxes) and I loaded everything in the boxes, weighed them and went from there. It's difficult to estimate what your "supplies" will weigh.

RE: Wheel bearings

Thanks for the replies. I believe my question has been covered.

Wheel bearings

After 12 years and 10's of thousands of miles a tire tech advised me that I should have my brakes and wheel bearings checked. Bottom line breaks were still good and the wheel bearings also. I do not advise everyone to do this, however I have seen postings that say twice yearly checking is a good idea. Was I just lucky by not checking or is this the norm?

RE: Wa 14 or I-84

I would avoid 97 out of Biggs. 14 has a lot of ups and downs but none of them compare to the Maryhill grade. Retired commercial bus driver and have experience on both sides of the river.

RE: Which LT tires have you been happy with?

No one has mentioned Toyo's I have run them for years and tens of thousands of miles. I can generally get 70K miles on a set (rotated every 5K)

RE: Buying TT with delamination

You might want to look at campers that have aluminum sides as well as frames.

RE: Burb 2500 (2008-2013)

Have a 2500 08 Burb total weight with TT 14000. Coast to coast and into Canada without a problem. Have only used the 4WD on very rare occasions and never on hard pavement (snow/ice etc.) I am retired and can take advantage of good weather for my driving.

RE: Satellite vs WiFi TV service

From someone who has both a jet-pack Mifi as well as Dish. We full time so it is to our advantage to also have a Wilson signal booster. Right now we are in a weak signal area and w/o the booster we would be out of luck. I don't think even with the signal booster we could stream very well from this location.

RE: 16' Keystone Passport cold weather camping Q

As someone who has spent more than his share of single digit TT living I have never had a problem with the drain tubes. I'm sure they freeze solid but I have never had an occasion to drain in freezing weather. I have other posts that cover cold weather living in a TT.

RE: Newbies searching for travel trailer?

It would be interesting to find out how many posters on this subject are year round full timers in cold climates. As I stated before DW and I spent the first 3 years in single digits so it can be done. Just choose a rig that has a proven record of 4 season liveability. Best of luck in your search.

RE: So Long

I'm glad you are back OB. Open forums should be just that - open. I'm on private web sites which do limit free speech I just don't think rv.net should be one of them. Apologies to those who have had their feeling hurt, the obvious solution - don't continue to read what offends you.

Thanks, Dick I hope that it was of his own accord.

RE: Newbies searching for travel trailer?

I've met several who have jobs that require travel in all sorts of weather. There are 4 season TT's out there as we have one. 2004 28RL Alpenlite. The company is no longer in business but I can not believe there are not 4 season rigs still being built. Just see if the dump valves are exposed, that generally means it is not all season as the valves will surely freeze unless protected. BTW the wife and I have been living in the above unit since driving it off the lot in 2004. Our first three winters were in temps of less than 10 for days at a time (yes, the propane bills were a little much) but we stayed warm.

RE: Do you have experience with cell phone boosters?

We also use a Wilson with a truckers antenna. Has worked well for us doing our coast to coast tour.

RE: Propane tank mishap

I'm certified to pump propane and I still don't like to fill the built in tanks on motor homes. Please, I'm not looking to start a word war, but the tanks on commercial vehicles, for the most part, are out in the open and in my opinion are safer to fill (easier too).

RE: Anode Rod Rusted Tight

Suburban tank replaced in January this year. This week took out the anode to check and had to use a cheater. I guess the water is a lot harder than I thought. BTW the RV sat for three months w/o being used. I need to buy another anode for backup.

RE: Closed posts

We no longer Workkamp as our lifestyle has changed to a strictly volunteer position. Having done both styles we no longer feel the need of a "regular" job which was the case with our Workkamping positions. Dianne thank you for all you do and I hope this forum continues as I believe it fills a good purpose.
