RE: Please critique my itinerary to WA/OR

Second generation Oregonian, I have seen hard freeze every month of the year in Central Oregon. While Sept on the coast is usually nice, by the second week of October the rains can set in pretty steady. Everbody has their opinions, and I expressed mine. You are welcome to express yours! Donn, my perceptions are different than yours. Our annual rainfall avg. here on the Central coast is only 5" in October, and negligible in Sept. However, it certainly can vary year to year.... and be more up North.....but my point is that it is nothing to be of concern for the planned trip by the original poster. Your temps in the Bend / Central Oregon area are the same situation ... I don't consider temps in the upper 20s to low 30s to be of great concern...although if it rains at those times that could be a problem on the passes. The zero degrees I experienced in Burns a couple Winters ago is definitely a "hard freeze", though. I just did not want the original poster to be too dissuaded from his trip during that period of the year as most of it should be just dandy for him. Me neither, but he really needs to be prepared for the worst. I have walked on the beach in short sleeves in January. I have also seen snow on the beach in January. My point is Oregon is one of the most unpredictable areas of the country.

RE: Extra Fridge

Coleman and a lot of others are thermalelectric, not real refers. They are lucky to be good for 20 degrees less than outside temps. Granted, they are cheap, but you get what you pay for. Dometic is a compressor refer that will get down to and hold zero degrees with no problem

RE: dicor sealer question

Did you clean the area with something?

RE: Please critique my itinerary to WA/OR

Poor choices. Besides way late in the season, you need 10 days just for the coast to do it justice. Crater lake will be all closed down for the season, possibly snow by then. Bend area? Expect highs in the 50's and overnights below freezing. Bend area is high desert region. 4000 foot elevations. Coast by then will be 40's/50's and lots of rain. Honestly your itiniary is at least 30 days late for the best weather.

RE: Extra Fridge

Dometic sells one in several sizes. We use one of the larger ones in our basement as a freezer. We can pack nearly a months worth of meat. It works off of 12VDC or 120VAC. I have ours set up to automatically switch when I unplug.

RE: TV Tires

Stick with stock size if you can. OS tires will throw your speedometer off and could possibly mess up your enissions.

RE: Please help with new to me camper issue

If you are connected to shore power (120VAC) then the battery should be charged by the converter/charger. Usually this is located near or behind the fuse panel. You need to get a decent cheap volt meter. Fuses might look good, but there is only one true way to know. Voltage test. My guess you will find no 12VDC through at least one of the fuses. You should also look behind the radio. Many will have at least one inline fuse for presets. But I have also seen a power fuse for the radio.

RE: seattle

Avoid Seattle between 5 and 10 in the morning and between 2 and 8 in the evening and you should be OK. Traffic is bad anytime of the day or night, but rush hour is worst. Since this is your first time, stick on I405. There are several camp grounds in and around Anacortes. Years ago when we toured the San Juans we used the county park about a half mile from the ferry terminal.

RE: Cost to have front brakes done on 2008 F-53

OH you mean like These? No need to replace rotors unless you have cooked them riding your brakes going down hills. Turn or heck, even a light sanding and thorough wash might be sufficient.

RE: Well...we've reached that point

By the time they were 13 or so my girls had pup tents they slept in. They did not want to hear mom and dad snoring any longer. So trailer became what we wanted, not what we needed.

RE: Things you see in Europe

I want that van in the second picture with the TT. Nice! Who makes that; can't read the badge? Is that factory 4x4 or aftermarket conversion? Looks like another Iveco. Pretty common in Europe.

RE: First 5th Wheel Purchase!!! Want quilty

I dont know who told you to avoid Cardinal, but IMHO they are fill of BS! I have a 10 year old Cedar Creek and it has been perfect. My only issues have been normal wear and tear. Any brand can build a good or bad one, so be careful of bad mouthers. IMHO Forest River, at least Cedar Creek division has some of the best customer service in the business. I can still call them and have the correct parts in my driveway in a week or less. Continue your research, but now is the time to start seriously looking, picking first floor plan, then brand based on how comfortable you feel living in that model.

Hundred bucks DIY, 500 to pay some kid to do it.

What a giant gas bag. I have to say, pretty nasty comment there!

RE: Anyone not want to retire?

We had no choice. When the economy tanked in 2008 my job ended, two months later DWs job ended. I was lucky to find a temp job for 18 months or so to carry me to 65. Did I want to retire? Yea, but on my terms not theirs. Was I glad? Yea, medical issues in the family I was able to be a care giver for MIL in her last days and DW during some serious medical problems, so it turned into a blessing.

RE: Why is there a 3 inch hole in the roof of my wolf creek?

Geeze, your going to cover the solar panels with that giant storage pod? Why not just take the panels off and use that area? Depending on how your parked that box is going to block most of that panel a great deal of the day.

RE: How high is the tax in your state

No taxes on Oregon. License fees every two years based on value for rvs
