RE: GPS 7735

The 7735 is(was) the Good Sam version of the Rand McNally 7730 with a bunch of Good Sam stuff loaded in the POI file. It was typically about $50 cheaper than the 7730 but I thought I'd be smart and wait to see if there was a deal for Black Friday. I think I outsmarted myself out of $50.:S

Reply from CW: "Mr. Wolfe, I have checked on the Rand McNally GPS you are referring to and I apologize it has been discontinued." So there you have it. Jim

GPS 7735

Waiting for Black Friday to see if I could get a deal on the GPS 7735. Can't seem to find it online. Has it been discontinued? Jim

Basement Storage???

I'm impressed with the size of the storage in the baggage area in my Redwood 36RL but it seems I just pile more junk in there. I'm looking for more creative ideas to better organize the chaos that I'm experiencing. Pics please. (I would have signed this post but I think my pen is lost in the cargo area . . . )

RE: G-Rated Tire Recommendations

I think I'm going to go with the Sailun G-rated tires. These are the same brand recommended by Titan Guy and I have found no posts which would make me be concerned about the tires. I am not going to H rated tires because I have 7K lb axles and the G series will exceed that. I have been to the scales fully loaded and we have a pretty healthy safety margin. That combined with the price difference makes the choice easy for me. Thanks for the input. Jim

G-Rated Tire Recommendations

I need to replace the Goodyear G614 Tires on my trailer and I'm hoping to do it without having to resort to bank robbery. Doing an online search, I'm finding a few Chinese brands I've never heard of. Anyboody got any real world recommendation for a tire somewhere between these two poles? Thanx, Jim

RE: Realistic Budget 2.0

Travel Trailer ~ I think we're closely aligned on what my budget was trying to establish. We own a trailer and that will not change based on whether it's in the driveway or on the road. We have satellite TV and wireless phones which will also remain whether we camp or not. Those items go in the Fixed Expenses category since they are not dependent upon travel. Camping fees, Fuel and Admission fees are directly attributable to travel. We have resources available for whatever we choose to do and for most unforeseen costs that may crop up. The budget was not for deciding whether we could afford to go, it was merely my anal retentive, spreadsheet based personality trying to get an idea of whether my estimates were in the ballpark. Thanks to all who have shared their opinions especially those with reasoned explanations. As you said, everyone does it differently. Thanx, Jim

RE: Realistic Budget 2.0

Some clarifications are in order. First is that we want to figure everything on the high side as a measure for comfort. If we don't need $1000 for maintenance (and I doubt we will) then that money stays in the kitty. We have a heat pump and an electric heater to offset propane consumption. Our trailer is 38 feet long so fuel consumption is based on current data. We have been told that during your first few months in a long term or full time trip you tend to do a lot more running around and tend to spend more on doing "things" until you settle down. I don't know if we'll be want to go down the Colorado River in a raft but I want to have the option. Thanx, Jim

Realistic Budget 2.0

After getting some really good feedback, I've modified my original budget to include Maintenance costs, increase fuel expenses and eliminate expenses we would have regardless of whether we were camping. Am I getting closer? "5200 mile trip.January 1st through April 30th." $1,000.00 Maint $3,600.00 Camp Fees $2,000.00 Fuel $100.00 Propane $2,000.00 Admission $800.00 Restaurant $500.00 Hobbies $10,000.00 Total

RE: Realistic Budget?

Thanks to all who've offered some realistic, constructive criticism of our budget. We plan on a couple of weeks in February in Puerto Penasco but we have no clue on the route we'll take to get there. For this first outing, I'm telling people that our plans are etched in Jell-o. We're going to use the flip-flop method for route planning. If It's too cold for flip-flops, go south and west. Thanx, Jim

RE: Realistic Budget?

We plan on doing some occasional boondocking and taking advantage of weekly rates whenever feasible. The lodging figure is 120 nights at $30 per night. Is that an unreasonable estimate? We've also tried to estimate everything at the high end. With money, I think it's better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it. If we find we've overestimated, we'll add another month or two.

Realistic Budget?

We're planning our first long-term trip out west and trying to come up with a realistic budget. We know, as newbies, we're going to spend more than average seeing sights and running around too much. For you full-timers and long-timers, does this budget look reasonable? January - April Trip $3,600.00 Camp Fees $1,457.00 Fuel $2,000.00 Admission $3,200.00 Hlth.Ins. $400.00 Wireless 440.00 Dish $200.00 Grooming $2,400.00 Food $800.00 Restaurant $400.00 Hobbies $ 15,397.00 Total 5200 mile trip. January 1st through April 30th.

RE: Quick electrical question : transfer switch vs charger

One thing I noticed the OP said he had was a microwave/convection oven. I'm pretty sure you'll want to check the power requirements on that since the convection oven uses pretty massive amounts of energy. I'm not sure if the batteries/inverter will be feasible there. It may be generator only. Jim

RE: Quick electrical question : transfer switch vs charger

If you plan to run the generator to charge the battery bank, I agree with the previous posters, spend a little more for your converter and get a decent 4 stage system. It will easily pay for itself in reduced fuel consumption during recharge cycles and will let you get a lot more life out of the batteries. They can be had from Amazon for under $200. Jim

RE: Custom built 5th wheel

I apologize for the Trolls. They're pretty thick on this forum and seem to have nothing better to do than snipe, kibbutz and generally give the place a negative atmosphere. Please continue to ask your questions and try to feel sorry for them as this is all they have for entertainment. P.S. Get off my lawn !

Has your friend considered a travel trailer. The bedroom ceiling height would be consistent throughout.The queen or king bed in the bedroom could be replaced. Jim

RE: RV Battery question

Good question Fulltimer50. The short answer is yes, the procedure for testing a deep cycle (RV) lead acid battery is the same as for a starting battery. For the long answer and the definitive way to properly test a lead acid battery,check out www.pacificpowerbatteries.com, scroll down and click on battery school then deep cycle batteries. (For some reason, I can't paste the link in this response.) There's more to testing a battery properly than clamping a load tester and reading a go/no-go gauge. (Release the Trolls . . . ) Jim

RE: Running 2 a/c's

When you say you have a 5000 watt generator, does that mean it supplies 5000 watts continuously or does it provide 5000 watts surge current. Hard to believe but sometimes manufacturers will use little tricks like that to sell products. And remember, you could win up to 5 bazillion dollars just for test driving that Polly Razzmatazz motorhome . . .;)

Collision repair?

Does the Fairfield, Ohio service dept do body work? Jim

RE: RV Battery question

In order to charge a battery to a nominal 12.6 volts, the charger will supply well over 13 volts. With only the battery's internal loss, they may retain the higher voltage for a time. My concern would be why the voltage dropped off initially and why the charger allowed the charging to continue beyond the normal set point.
