RE: LP Gas carrier on back bumper?

Okay..I get that. You didn't say you couldn't afford it in your original post. When you were told you had a small leak...what is it that is leaking? And what year RV do you have? The year matters as far as finding parts. The tank isn't leaking...it's either a line or the valve. Looking on-line, there are suggestions that who checked what and said what plays a role. If it was a pump jockey or a skilled tech. If the former, take it to another dealer for a second opinion. I see 7 propane dealers in your area. Maybe call around and see who has a tech as opposed to just a fill place. Gary Haupt

RE: Roll Call Alaska 2015

Well I certainly hope that the early reports of ferry cancellations don't materialize. But here is the link for those that want to follow. Click Here. There is now an update and it doesn't look promising. http://www.alaskajournal.com/Alaska-Journal-of-Commerce/April-Issue-3-2015/Cuts-may-displace-thousands-of-tourists/ Gary Haupt

RE: Possible Ferry Cancellations - Alaska

The latest report from the Alaska Journal of Commerce is Here. The AMH is prepared to re-book everyone, but it won't be pretty or quick. The session lasts until Sunday, and may be extended. The reporter in the story has a pretty good record of getting it right. I am having trouble believing that they are going to do this. The lost revenue is so huge, it is hard to fathom. But..once the cupboard is bare..it's done. Gary Haupt

RE: Wheelchair in an RV?

I was considering a toy hauler model, with a fold down rear ramp. One model by Heartland has a small bathtub and toilet in the back area, as well as the normal larger bath that would be up a few steps in the front area. Fred, before you get that toy hauler, better measure the angle of the ramp and try going up it unassisted in your chair. The ANSI standard for wheelchair ramps is 1' of length for every 1" of rise, or equal to a 10% grade. When we looked at toy haulers, none of them even came close to that specification. DW's power scooter couldn't even make it up that ramp, and she can manage a 20% grade in it! Would one of those ATV type winches work in this application? Using a remote controller..one could be 'on line' going down and then for the return. Just asking. Gary Haupt

RE: Stealth camping

Len, yes..there are many stories of abuses. Yes, the 'illegals' work harder than most anyone. And yes, you are free to have your views. On the issue of people claiming to be vets and not...you know that many are, right? and are scared of you when you make demands on them. Or they are in whatever head space they are in...and you come along and demand answers. I dunno man...but is it really your business to do that? I am not going to get on my rant box...no point in it. Most on RV.Net will support your view point. Time and events have a funny way of bringing people to see things differently. Gary Haupt

RE: Stealth camping

Gary, Come clean now .... admit that it's pretty challenging to "stealth" camp in a white colored Class C that's four wheel drive so it's high up in the air and sometimes might even have a boat way up on top. ;) I have my ways..... http://i61.tinypic.com/2emn4sz.jpg]http://i61.tinypic.com/2emn4sz.jpg Gary Haupt

RE: Overnighting-while-Urban, or OU

Old-Biscuit..I'm cheap. Plain and simple. Doing the math, a person can put out $900 a month in $30 a night fees. Lots of folks don't feel the need to pay out that kind of cash. Lots of folks can't pay out that kind of cash. Perhaps you can or perhaps you just don't go camping a lot. Plus, not everyone gets to camp in Nat or State parks and get the 50% off rates. I prefer the money in my own pocket and not in the pocket of RV park operators. Gary Haupt

RE: Stealth camping

yeah..okay jfkmk. I have to come clean...I do it the same way because I am cheap. I camp free all over the place and I always feel I have failed if I end up anyplace other than with a great view, quiet and wifi. Also..I am a bleeding heart, left leaning Liberal, so the sight of the homeless just breaks my heart. I try to remind myself everyday, how grateful I am and how lucky. I spent most of my adult life one paycheck from being without and now that I am retired and with a pension, the need to be frugal has diminished, but it is from habit that I still seek out the free spots. It is all part of the days games. I still seldom eat out, shop wisely and only drink good wine, good bourbon and good coffee. Life is to short to go cheap on those things. Gary Haupt

RE: Are We Allowed to have a gun in an RV for protection?

Right off, I am Canadian, so..I'm already sorry. "Do you find that the riff raff stays away from RV campgrounds?" If someone were to have 'riff raff' around them while camping and felt that that was a life/death situation and pulled out the hardware...just where do you think this is going? Someone is going get badly injured and likely dead. Over what? Noise? Yelling? Maybe even a theft of a cooler? If a person does have that 'bad feeling', it is time to leave. Not hang around to see if they are right. Gary Haupt

RE: Stealth camping

jfkmk...in the article, the author says he has been full timing for six years. If one calculates $30 a night, we have $900 a month...which is $10,800 a year, which is about $65,000 over six years. I think I understand why he might be doing it. If your travel see you mostly in the east, you probably don't see the huge numbers of people that do live this way. Yes, many are homeless, but many are simply choosing this method as a way of stretching their available resources. And then there are the many that just choose to do it for whatever reasons they have. Gary Haupt

RE: Stealth camping

It's a need-to-know category, jfkmk. Very hush-hush...stealthy, even. And sadly...you aren't in the right category. Gary Haupt

RE: Carrying Weapons North of the Border (cont)

richcarfg...I think many of us are happy with receiving factual information, like the first part of your post. It's when it veers off onto the philosophical part that makes me go cross-eyed. This is where and when it goes off the rails and gets closed. Please...consider removing that part..and leave up the good info. Gary Haupt

RE: BC trip report

I appreciate your effort. There is a link on your blog; "Paterson Photography". It takes the reader to "Paterson Photography Teaching, courses, workshops, printing, photography and more". Your name; "Mike Paterson" is a link to "New Product – Gloss Laminate Posted on March 18, 2015 by Mike NEW Product!! I love getting new things in and this one is really cool." and more." In my opinion, your blog is a direct violation of; ""You may not use the Open Roads Forum to either advertise or promote commercial endeavors. This includes direct posts, member name, URLS in your profile or signature, as well as, active links to other sites on the Internet." Sorry tried to please but only so much that I can do on the road, take it down then I really do not care!!!! I am presuming you and the Moderator are having a 'moment'. But..telling him you "really don't care"..? What kind of stunt is that? If you really "don't care"..take your Blog off the posting..or don't post. Gary Haupt
