RE: Probably Going To The Dark Side

Many times I type out a huge response and then just don't post it, better for all concerned.

RE: Probably Going To The Dark Side

Yeah some people are just born @$$h*les and could care less about anybody else. I think I found one here on this forum. "Hey look at me - look at me, you may have some unfortunate problems but I feel great so screw you". Oh well -- karma's a b1tch, talk to me when she arrives! :B:B:B:B:B:B:B:B:B:B

RE: Probably Going To The Dark Side

When was the last time you spoke to your doctor Photomike? Mine will not let me do/eat/drink/ what I like. Life is not fair and I am not saying I like it. Dr a few months back Specialist one month ago Xray tech one month ago CT scan tech 4 months ago Breathing tech one month ago Specialist nurse with the drug company every month I get to see just about everyone every three months, whether I like it or not. Like my specialist says "You know what is best for you, if you want to do or try something then go for it. The worst that will happen is it will kill you".

RE: Probably Going To The Dark Side

Funny, or sad, how some people want to put down others. There is an old saying that you truly do not know someone till you walk a mile in their shoes. Sometimes it is small things that make us change, like the tiny pebble in your shoe that will bring you to tears or it is big things like a major disease. TRULY WHO CARES what type of Rv someone wants, or likes as long as it works for them. For me it was a potentially terminal lung disease that changed my wants and needs. No I never smoked a day in my life. I would ride my bike 12 miles to work and 12 miles home, hike, ride on weekends then it all changed. The TCer worked for a while but then I figured that I should get what works for me, not for someone else. I bought a class C so I could go from the front to the back and love it, much easier to use. I then bought a van that I am camperizing. I could not care any less if I tried about what others think of me, I am happy. If switching is what someone wants to do let them do it instead of being so insecure that you need to put them down!

RE: First Cool Weather Outing -Off To The Big City

Sounds to me like a great trip / experience made even better by taking your home with you!

RE: I have gone even further to the dark side.....

We’ve been truck camper people for a long time; we tried a travel trailer but didn’t care for it. Now my wife is talking about wanting a class c or class a so we can have a lot more room and travel around the country in it. We’ve been retired for almost three years now so we have plenty of time to enjoy one if we make the jump. I think I would still have my TCer if it was not for my illness. I loved the TCer but we need to change to make us happy and to fit our needs. If you can rent a C or A before you buy. I love the C I have but like I stated it is wide, a lot wider than the TCer and driving is a lot different. LOVE the C when I am parked for a few days at a camp ground as there are fewer steps to get in and out & more floor space. I bought an electric bike to use to get around when I am parked, I understand more why people tow a vehicle now.

RE: I have gone even further to the dark side.....

What is the interior height. I have considered doing the same, seems like that type of vehicle would quietly blend in just about anywhere. Does anybody here have any cost estimates for a simple interior finishing? I don't have the height with me but it is an inch or so over what I need :-) I think the medium roof is 68". They have a higher but I wanted the less wind resistance / side profile possible.

RE: Truck remote start and TC battery charging

As mentioned already using the truck to charge while idling is not the best idea. You can bypass the problem easily for getting power to the TCer with the remote start. What is happening is that the isolator that you are using to stop the vehicle battery from being connected to the RV battery when the key is off is hooked up to something that does not power on with the remote start. Possibly a light circuit or something that is only active with key in, you need to change this to something that is active with the remote start & key in. Could be the radio, heater fan, other lights, etc. I did that with my camper as I wanted power going to the camper in case of a battery failure in the camper so I could still have lights in an emergency. Charging the batteries was not going to do much, or anything, with it.

I have gone even further to the dark side.....

Sold my truck camper almost two years ago and I missed it every day since for many reasons mostly how easy it was to drive on narrow roads. I bought my Class C just over a year ago and I LOVE it but it is not for me in my photography. GREAT for camping as it has everything and it is all one unit but not good for commuting and back roads. So for a while now I have been looking for something that drives like the TCer but was one unit, and last week I found it. http://www.firstchoicephoto.ca/tc/whiteturtleIII/Van20171127.jpg 2017 Ford Transit van, completely empty so I can put what I want inside. For the first time since selling the TCer I feel at home and it is still empty with nothing in the back yet. Drives more like the TCer in that it is lighter and narrower. Comfortable to sit in and fun to drive. Took a while but I can say that I have now officially said good by to my Tcer and don't miss her any more. Started a build thread here

RE: Google Chrome embed fix for nuked photobucket images

I will leave my account as is for the opportunity for people to see what I have done in the past, but I will never load another photo onto that aberration of a site. Bombarded with ads to the point where you cannot work with it anymore. really pathetic. AS far as I know nobody can see your pictures with any of the fixes as of today.

RE: Unimog Truck Campers

I haven’t seen them at campground utility poles. Now there is an idea, campsites with Tesla chargers for those with electric cars or trucks in the future!!!

RE: Unimog Truck Campers

What's your definition of "lot of solar"? http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2017/06/09/17/414387DE00000578-4589114-World_s_largest_floating_solar_plant_had_switched_online_generat-a-61_1497024122036.jpg width=900 That should do it, as long as it is a sunny day :B

RE: Google Chrome embed fix for nuked photobucket images

I have no need to download anything from Photobucket, as I still have all of the pictures on my hard drive. Why would anyone upload pictures to a free account and not keep the original? Why would they think they would always be there? Did anyone actually do that? :R When PB changed their terms of service I deleted all of my pictures from their site and closed the account. If they don’t want to be an image host for the free accounts any longer, fine. I’ve moved on, PB is dead to me now. :):) I wish you could talk to my students as I am ALWAYS banging my head on the wall when I hear them say "All my images are in the cloud because they are safe there" or the people that think "My pictures are on facebook so they are safe". I know pro photographers that don't keep a back-up in house and it makes me so mad. A hard drive is $100 and then you have control of your own images and no change of terms will effect you..... as long as you are not using Photoshop CC, but that is another conversation :B

RE: Unimog Truck Campers

I think I will hold out for this. 80hrs to get full charge off 50A service to be able to travel 500 miles... More time to camp...... forced camping :B or I could run solar to recharge...... a lot of solar!!!!

RE: Top RV manufacturers?

This question comes around every few months and reading all the responses I have to say that there is no clear winner. I have heard horror stories on all brands and I have heard people say how much they love all brands (okay maybe a couple never got any love). I have a Majestic (think it is from Thor) and it is amazing, great build and nice features from any unit let alone from a rental. I have seen other brands that I would not spend my money on no matter how cheap. It really is buyer beware as a good brand can still have bad units. If you are looking take a look at a unit that fits your needs and if you like it then go over it with a fine tooth comb (don't let the salesperson rush you, IT IS YOUR MONEY) and have a mechanic and a RV tech do the same.
