RE: Canyonland Nationl Park

As 2gypsies said much of the good boondocking close to Moab/Canyonlands has been shut down due to overuse/abuse and I strongly suspect lobbying from campgrounds. There is some out Kane Creek road along with some first come primitive camps near the river a bit closer to town along the same road. All the good stuff south of town has been shut down, not sure about up north. We like Horsethief campground on the way out to Dead Horse Point for more "away from it" camping, if visiting Moab proper Ken's lake has some nice sites, early/mid May is prime time so I'd arrive mid week and look for a spot. The link 2gypsies gave you is the same one I was going to post. Good luck and have fun.

RE: Pop Up Ads

You don't say which browser you're using but check the "add ons". My wife picked up an advertising add on called tidynetwork somehow. Just can't convince her not to say "yes" to free software. In this case removal was as easy as deleting the add on from Firefox. If you can ID which adware has infected you Googling "how to remove XXXXXXXX" generally will give you step by step instructions.

RE: Feedback needed.....

This has been an issue on almost every forum I've ever been on. There is usually a "core" of folks that do the discussion thing and help out and a lot of folks that just think it's a free information resource and don't think it's necessary to come back with what the solution was or a quick "thank you". It sure would help future folks if the OP would come back and at least let us know which of the posted possibilities was the correct solution.

RE: Going down to 4 above on Monday

I understand the worries, first year I had the TC I only ran pink stuff through it trying to chase the water out with the pink stuff. Didn't feel good about it when it got real cold. Now I do both rigs by: Blow lines to clear out as much water as possible Run pink stuff through Blow lines again blowing pink stuff into traps/tanks Sleep real good with no worries. It reduced the pink stuff usage as I was having to run lots through to ensure it wasn't diluted and it makes getting it all out in the spring pretty easy. Just flush, then blow the water out and flush again, turn on the WH bypass and fill everything up, no taste or foam at all. Stay warm, heading down to single digits again here also. Dave

RE: Roadmaster Even Break Changing Toad

We looked at the 2nd car kits when we couldn't decide which Cherokee to tow, lots of $$ for a little convenience. What I did was take some 3 pin connectors for the brake signal from the toad, 12V + and - and wire them into each toad and tuck the toad end under the center console, then wired one of the male ends onto the transmitter for the Even Brake. Now I just move the unit from one car to the next (the Wrangler got setup later) and plug in the 3-pin, situate and plug in the breakaway, install the "box" hook up the 7 pin mounted in the bumper run the test and go. I also use the same unit flat towing behind the truck and camper, the unit doesn't care where it is. Have fun Dave

RE: Roadmaster Even Break Changing Toad

We bounce our Even Brake between 3 Jeeps, no need for the unit to re pair with the monitor, it's set from the factory and as long as you own it the 2 will work together. Anyone who can use a multimeter (This of course may well leave out Camping World installers) can check the charging and other circuits without the Brake unit, I did all the wiring on all 3 in the garage making sure all was right before ever plugging them in.

RE: SE Utah in March?

Road Less Traveled mentioned ceramic heaters. Those obviously have an electric draw but am I correct to assume they wouldn't drain my batteries they way the furnace blower would? No, the ceramic heaters are ~1000-1500W at 120V, quick mental figuring at 1000w = 8 amps at 120v or 80amps at 12V, add in the loss for the inverter if boondocking and your batteries will be completely dead in a couple of hours. Furnace blower takes a couple of amps of 12v. Resistance heating and boondocking don't play well together. If plugged in it's a moot point of course, but then you're in a situation much like a commercial campground.

RE: SE Utah in March?

I usually pop over to the Moab or Blanding area several times in March/April/May every year. By March the weather has changed to "Variable" to say the least. We've encountered snow/rain and sunny low 60s all in the same day. (1)Lows are usually in the 32-39ºF range and both the motor home and truck camper stay tosty warm with just the on-board furnace. Having a warm comforter allows you to drop the cabin temperature a bit to save on the furnace running the battery/batteries down. (2) No generator at night, not allowed in campgrounds and a good way to get a knock on the door late at night from annoyed neighbors when boondocking. (3) Solar panels are great for keeping battery banks charged without using a generator but I've never seen a solar array/battery bank large enough to run electric heat (very high current draw) at night. Sorry no experience with rentals. Welcome to our corner of the world, you'll love it. Dave
