RE: Propane..unlawful to have fridge on while moving

As for cel's and so on..I was talking to the RV tech one fine afternoon by cel, as my tank was puking out all over the place. He said to go get a glove on, walk over and twist the spitter..to let him know how that worked out. I asked about the cel/propane part and he just laughed. Said he'd know it was correct if he heard a geeezus big bang. Gary Haupt

RE: Propane..unlawful to have fridge on while moving

I read the "disclaimer" for the web site you linked to. Their disclaimer is 100% right on. They basically said, they don't know jack. Quoting from the article..."This reader has asked an important safety question to kick off another season of RV use and the answer to this question is a quick one: yes, there is a law that would prevent this. The Transportation of Dangerous Goods Regulations require that the appliance tank valves be closed when your RV is moving. Also, a quick consultation with a Gas Safety Officer at the BC Safety Authority confirmed what I have always believed, this is not a good idea. In fact, it could be very dangerous in some circumstances." Edited..I have reached out to DriveSmartBC. Will advise. Gary Haupt

RE: Propane..unlawful to have fridge on while moving

Geeez...don't get me wrong..I even run with my oven on, with a Dutch oven cooking a roast..or ribs...or pulled pork. I was simply posting this as an infomercial. Plus..the thought of all of the weight, tire, etc police getting all torqued up...I mean..how many of 'them' are now going to run with the fridge off? Because, after all..it is a law. Gary Haupt

Propane..unlawful to have fridge on while moving

I had no idea and although this is a Canadan quote, the thread suggests that many states have similar. Whch doesn't surprise me..usually Canada follows suit. http://drivesmartbc.ca/rvs/operating-rvs-propane Which begs the question...I wonder how many people travel with the fridge on? Gary Haupt

RE: Salmon Glacier, Stewart and Hyder

SideHill...there are so many facets to the resource based feast/famine loops. There is the truth that the north needs growth and mining is the vehicle that seems to be the go-to right now. But if it's not mining, it's oil and gas exploration and drilling and pipes. I always struggle with the good vs bad scenarios. No doubt jobs are the carrot on the stick. Big money for whomever gets hired. The goverment of the day needs the tax money generated to feed the hungry mouths that we, the taxpayers, have. The damage that resourcse extractions cause are never ending. It's not like logging..plant more trees. Damage from tailings and fracking and spills go on forever. As far as Stewart and Hyder, the roads will become busier, gates go up, costs to live there skyrocket. Some get wealthier, some have to leave. I suppose it's the nature of things but now that I am kind of at the end of my own road, it makes me very unhappy to see what we allow, in the name of commerce. We give away the in-ground resources, including water. I fear that in the not to distant future, we shall wake-up to the news that we have expended all that was and we are left with just a shell. It has been suggested that tourist dollars play a smmall role in Stewart. I don't think that the strength of the tourist spending should ever be downplayed. Hyder and Stewart both, benefit greatly from visitors. Stores, hotels, shops, food and ale. If someone is reading this...and want to see the two glaciers...don't delay. They are both retreating at alarming rates. Gary Haupt

RE: North Cascades National Park

Back to the original topic...? There are several 'dry' NFCG's west of Winthrop on #20. You can also wander west of Twisp and find some true boondocking places, although the fire last year may have ruined those. It's a great area but heavily utilized, so you will need to be creative, perhaps. Gary Haupt

RE: Fellow CDN'd in Mexico

If you actually get a chance to talk to the owner of this unit, please remind him that it's -27C here today. He's probably much warmer there !:) I will do that very thing. Gary Haupt

RE: The truth about Boondocking

Gary, thanks for the encouragement and invite to the outstanding area of Penticton ... we'll keep that in mind if we wind up near there. Maybe we shouldn't get anywhere near Penticton, though. It could be life-changing cuz doesn't Penticton mean "a place to stay forever"? ;) But it doesn't mean 'stay forever at Gary's place in Penticton'. Gary Haupt

RE: Using travel trailer in winter

Sure you can, but your heat source will need to have shore power. A couple good heaters will be needed. And yes, a dehumidifier, for sure. If you want to do it right, find a way to close off the underside. People use bales of hay but sheets of plywood with some insulation board glued on will do it too. Wind will just suck any heat right out, so if you can cover the some of windows with cut out insulation board? Gary Haupt

RE: The truth about Boondocking

Phil...the biggest fear you need to adress re:ferries is the cost. Holy doodle..but as far as wide, naw..they guide drivers and there is huge room. Propane is off for 1.5 hrs-2hrs...and you are not down there opening and closing the doors anyway, so...it is no problem. There are literally hundreds of RV's cross everyday. Still and all...if you keep in touch, I have a spot for ya in Penticton, BC. Gary Haupt

RE: The truth about Boondocking

Ya'll come on up to the Canada Forum icanon. We tolerate the Alaska folks too, but that's just the kind of people we are. We got lots of good boondockin info and places to see and visit. Gary Haupt Is this the forum you're talking about RVing in Canada and Alaska ? I had to look twice..looks different than what I am used to...but yes, that Forum. I go thru a different portal. http://www.rv.net/forum/index.cfm/fuseaction/listings/forum/65.cfm Gary Haupt

Garmin 2457..

I am on my way to La Manzanilla next week and am wondering..will my 2457 just update after I turn it on? Looking on the Garmin site and looking thru Google..I am no further ahead. Going to be renting a car a couple times and have grown accustomed to having the GPS to get really lost with. Many thanks Gary Haupt

RE: Maybe a great idea from down under.

I think this might be a hit with the Expedition Portal forum crowd. They tend to be young and very adventurous. Once upon a time, I was young...... I even remember some of it. Lol Great concept, and it looks like good execution. It is just quite a few decades to late for me.... :-) Good thought..thanks. Did. Gary Haupt

RE: Second day of hanging out at Deception Pass State Park

If you are exploring? Take a drive down to Whidbey Island Air Station and just follow the marked road west. Go past the gates..another couple miles, a park on the water. Don't take your camera out of the truck...go ahead..ask me how I know. Gary Haupt

RE: Maybe a great idea from down under.

What attracted me was the module. Plus, one could pretty easily build their own, using fibreglass and so on. Just seemed like a good idea. Gary Haupt
