RE: Need a new water pump

You have checked the filter in the intake line..yes? Mine plugged and it was only as I was installing the new pump, that I saw the plugged filter. Gary Haupt

RE: Stayed Home Last Summer and did Nuttin..... Round #2

I see Ruudie is once again shy on her leashing...**** dog.... ok ok..sorry... Gary Haupt

RE: Stayed Home Last Summer and did Nuttin.....Round #1

crosscheck...funny, we were just talking about that turkey! Took about a nano-second to make the transition. We are now in full Okanagan Valley mode..even to the point of doing the AirBnb thing. Sunshine and Wine Loft, we call it. If ever in the area? Please do stop in. Maya says she can kick hell out of Ruude, paws down. Gary Haupt

RE: Stayed Home Last Summer and did Nuttin.....Round #1

Nice pics and trip reports BUT - from Parks Canada website (Banff NP) " Keep your dog under control and on a leash at all times. Dogs are not permitted on trails with seasonal restrictions. " So you, as a aotive Canuck should surely know the rules. Nooo....I am almost without words....almost. After all that they have shown us, you have to scold them for apparently not having their dog leashed at all times? That is just so sad. They are probably over-weight too. Gary Haupt

RE: Best place to turn north?

Only words of wisdom you need....turn north before you hit Pike Street Market in Seattle...either that or start swimming. Gary Haupt

RE: Do you keep original tires on rv when going to Alaska?

If you are buying new tires...is it worth looking at Costco? Reason being they have such a great return policy and with stores through-out your trip routing..maybe worth considering? Gary Haupt

RE: Leaky Water Pipe

The one thing about having your mechanic do the job, Julie, is that you will have a sense of not having to worry about it after. I know that feeling only too well. And winter time is a hard time to be messing with stuff. Gary Haupt

RE: Leaky Water Pipe

If nothing else, put a pan or something under the joint...capture the drips..plus, leave the cabinet door open...get the interior drying out. The reason silicone and other methods of goo or tape won't provide a permanent fix is that the water is 'pushing out'. That will just go right past the stop gap stuff. The place where you tighten...don't reef on it. A gentle touch is needed. It might be that something has been pushed against that black piping and now the alignment is out..allowing water to seep out. If it is the large black knobby thing...you need a fairly wide mouth tool...often called a Plumbers Helper. Home Depot, Ace or Lowes will have those in a package of three..about 20 bux for them. Tell a sales rep what it is you want to do...don't be buying a pipe wrench. You don't need that. If you can't get a wrench till tomorrow...use a dish rag or small towel in your hands..that black piping in your hands slips really easily. Gary Haupt

RE: Sweaty window frames

Just living in the RV puts an enormous amount of moisture in the air, and that will go right to a cold surface like the frames. Someone mentioned de-humidifiers and if your rig allows for it's size, it's the way to go. Not everyone's does tho, so then open two windows/vents..one each end of the RV to allow for the moisture laden air to flow out. I know..it is counter-intuitive, but it is correct. The moisture will will wick right into soft material like curtains, bedding and clothing. Once you are at that level, you just can't get warm. Gary Haupt

RE: Dispersed camping protocol

However ... I've been considering going this route for even more insurance when remote camping: http://www.findmespot.com/en/index.php?cid=100 Do any of you boondockers carrying one of these along in your RV? The DeLorme gizmo allows a subscriber to interrupt their contract and then pick it up later. SpotFindMe does not provide for that. http://www.inreachdelorme.com/ I kind of think that`s a good idea for seasonal rv`rs. I know Tiger RV has one..perhaps we`ll hear from that source. Gary Haupt

Exxwhy, there's no inconsistency between being a blogger and a frequent poster and being anti-social -- I use the web as a substitute for human contact! ;) Me too. Gary Haupt

RE: Dispersed camping Valley of the Gods

The best part of 'The Goosenecks' is the sunset. Ok..you are scared of heights..then stay away from the edges..although you can't tumble in and own..the edge has a ledge just out of sight, but still...the edge will make your tummy jump. Gary Haupt

RE: Dispersed camping Valley of the Gods

We have a very small 20' van so not worrying about that. I've read a lot about Gooseneck and nothing but a stinky vault toilet and a few picnic tables so I think I'll pass on it. Thanks so much for the information. After I posted I found a video some gentleman posted and it showed his site. It was just off the road but not on the road. (I was envisioning a pull out right next to the road.) We are leaving Wa in Feb and heading south and I'm hoping to get to Utah about end of April. So excited. We plan to boondock or dry camp for most of the trip just because we can. You are kidding..right? Going to pass on the Goosenecks..which you will be driving right by...because someone said a smelly toilet vault? A) I hope you change your mind...you will be forever grateful you did. B) Stick to your guns..don't go..and be forever lamenting about not going. Gary Haupt

RE: Question?

If you can find a Triple E Regal to buy? That has a high insulation value, heated tank bays and dual-pane Thermo windows. I still have to blanket off the front cab area, but the house part is true 3 season. At some point tho, it all becomes just plain too cold. Gary Haupt
