RE: Generator ~ Keep the older one, buy a new one?

Agreed. I didn't think I'd ever use it but have been surprised at how often we do. When you need it, it sure is handy. Running off the propane tanks makes it easy to start in the winter and being able to flip the switch from inside is worth a lot too. Jim

RE: Newbie Fifth Wheel Buyers...Need advice

Good advice. I would add that a big expense for your age might be health insurance. There are ways to stretch your income as well. Consider incorporating your business(es) so you can deduct a large part of your expenses. Workcamping (IMHO) is an area you want to be careful with. If you get a site for free in exchange for working at the campground, be sure to figure out what you would have paid for the camp spot and what you would have earned flipping burgers. I've seen quite a few work camp "opportunities" that were less than equitable. In any case, burn up the net and you can find your answers. Jim

RE: Wiring recommendations

What's the amperage of the fuse on the circuit? That will determine the minimum wire size needed. Here's a link to help you decide.

RE: Wiring recommendations

SJ isn't what you want. S=Service, J=Junior, typically rated to under 300VAC. If you're going to use a service type cord, you want something with a "W" in the spec like SJOW since the W means it is weather resistant. I'd email the manufacturer and ask what they use. Jim

RE: Newbie Fifth Wheel Buyers...Need advice

Help us help you out. There are about a bazillion ways to earn a living on the road. What type of businesses do you have that can be run remotely? Do either of you have any particular skills that could be used while traveling. Many years ago, we attended a Life On Wheels conference and went to a seminar on just this subject and I feel that if you're willing to work, you're flexible, creative and willing, there are ways to make it work.

Generator ~ Keep the older one, buy a new one?

We have a 2002 Montana with an Onan generator installed. We are looking to trade the old Montana for a shiny new one. I'm trying to determine if it would be smarter to leave the generator installed when we trade and buy a new one for the new trailer. Or, take it out and install in the new trailer. It works like a champ and has low hours. Since I just had this brainstorm, I haven't done any due diligence. What's the approximate cost for a generator with installation? Any opinions? Thanx, Jim

Smaller garage?

A few years ago, KZ took their 6' garage model off the market. We're looking at upgrading our Montana to a toy hauler but don't haul big toys. Does any manufacturer offer a toy hauler with less than 8 ft in the garage area? Thanx, Jim
