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 !

RE: Custom built 5th wheel

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.

RE: Cleaning my grill - Help!

I'm with SCH . . . almost. I'd turn the grill up to high and let it heat for 1/2 hour after it gets up to temperature. Then, while the grill grate is screaming hot, wire brush it. By brushing while hot, you'll remove the sanitized contamination and not contaminate the wire brush. If you brush before heating, you'll keep re-contaminating every time you brush. Jim

RE: Annual Budgets?

TT Thanks for the info. We'll likely travel much the same way and my budget numbers look similar. I'm assuming a 15% increase in our current food budget to compensate for smaller stores and less ability to stock up on sale items. I also have a pretty good sized line item called Entertainment. I've been told that your first year on the road, you'll tend to spend a lot on local attractions, excursions and buying "stuff" you really don't need. This is discretionary and can be adjusted as the need arises. I think the only thing I'm waiting on now is the calendar . . . Thanx, Jim

RE: Take it or leave it?

How do you like the combo unit? I've seen some combination appliances that end up not doing either thing particularly well.

RE: Annual Budgets?

Thanks to all for the input. Becky ~ Congrats on your lifestyle choice. We've considered workamping but I'm not sure how many seasons we have left. We'll likely keep our home base and travel 6-9 months a year for as long as we can. Thanx, Jim

RE: Take it or leave it?

Katuna, you sound like my kind of cook. Most of the equipment I want to take isn't a uni-tasker (nod to Alton Brown) and the few that are may be replaced with multi-taskers. I'm looking at the Cuisinart Griddler. Anyone use one of these and care to comment? Thanx, Jim

Thanks for the replies. (I've posted a "Thank-you" in the Camp Cooks forum as well.) Jim

RE: Take it or leave it?

Thanks for the replies (I'll also post a "Thanks" in the Full-Timers forum) We have been lucky enough to be able to get a 36RL Redwood with a ton of storage and pantry space. That was one of my deal breakers when we went looking for a new fifth wheel. I've already begun whittling and scheming. I've started a list with "Must Haves", "Nice to Haves" and "Find an Alternative." Thanx, Jim

Take it or leave it?

I cook. A lot. I have gadgets and geegaws, appliances and appurtenances. My question is what to take with us when we start Long-Timing next spring. Do most of you cooks out there take most of your kitchen with you or do you try to get by with a mess kit and a pocket knife? Trying to determine if I need things like a stand mixer, food processor and panini maker, all of which I use weekly at home. Suggestions? Jim

Annual Budgets?

Greetings and salutations, My wife and I are retiring at the end of this year and plan on becoming "Long-Timers". The amount of time we'll spend traveling will obviously be influenced by finances. A few years ago (before grandchildren)we had begun preparing to go full timing and several very generous people forwarded me their actual expenses for a year so I could make an educated guess on what it would take. I understand everyone is different in how they fund retirement from Social Security only to scraping by on $100,000 a year. If another group of very generous people could forward me their current expenses and a brief description of how the travel, I'd greatly appreciate it. Thanx, Jim & Connie

RE: Portable Dish Antenna?

Doesn't matter if the couch is on wheels. You can be a mobile couch potato now. ;)

RE: Portable Dish Antenna?

As I understand it, some of the HD channels, locals and some premium channels may be broadcast from a different satellite. Hooking a cable from another LNB and connecting it to your node will "join" the two streams into one so you can get them to the Hopper with one coax cable. That's my understanding anyway and I may be totally full of beans but it seems to work for me. Jim

RE: Portable Dish Antenna?

I bought the dish, tripod and node. Went out this past weekend and set it up and it worked OK. We were fairly close to home and I was disappointed to be unable to get the locals in HD but the Hopper switched to SD alternative and it worked fine. I'm not sure that I had my dish tweaked exactly and I'm going to salvage the screw type adjuster found on my old DirecTv dish and swap it for the existing mount. That should allow for more precise aiming. I also used the SiteAlign system on my old dish setup and will be adding it to the new dish. A real time saver. In any case, thanks for the info. Now where did I put that remote . . . Jim

RE: Portable Dish Antenna?

Spoke to Dish Network and it looks like I won't be taking the Hopper with me. None of the portable, automatic antennae are compatible with it. There's a roof mount unit that retails for over $1600 but that's a little too pricy and I like to camp where there's trees. I have a 211 receiver that will work but, alas, no DVR. Bluesing, Jim
