RE: South Dakota possibly Texas domicile questions

Our understanding is that with Texas you have to go back every year for vehicle inspection...whereas you don't in SD. That is true. Changed either this year or last year? Scott It is NOT True. The NEW Law has an exception for vehicles that are not physically in the state. When you re-new your registration, you certify that the vehicle is not in Texas and you are not required to get an inspection unless the vehicle comes back to Texas. Here is a direct quote " Registered in Texas but Operating Out of State If a vehicle is out of state and unable to undergo a Texas vehicle inspection, you will be able to self-certify that the vehicle is out of state."

RE: Thor/Heartland buys out DRV

still building drvs like before the buyout, New toy hauler model called the boss is like a cyclone though, I beam mains and standard size upper deck so won't have lots of storage space I'm sorry, but I must be missing something here. The DRV Suites toy hauler is the Full House. It has the 15" stacked triple box section frame just like the Mobile Suites and Elite Suites. I find no reference whatsoever to a "DRV Boss". Rusty A google search show that the Boss is a toyhauler built by Cruisers Inc. not DRV.

RE: San Antonio, Texas Campgrounds

Another vote for Travelers World. The bus stop is across the street that takes you downtown and to the riverwalk. No need to drive in traffic. Good Rv park. we have stayed there 4 times in the last 6 years.

RE: A/C with Heat Pump, worth it?

Yes we like it. our AC with the heat pump died and we bought a new one with a heat pump even though it was a lot more money. We ALWAYS have to buy our own propane, but we rarely stay in parks where we have to pay for electricity, so we will use the heat pump until the temperature goes so low that it won't work. At that point we switch to propane furnace and a small electric heater, but when it gets below 35* its a good idea to use the furnace anyway. It helps keep the basement warm and the water pipes warm etc. YMMV Sue

RE: No campground spots available, what to do?

Cape Ann Campsites in Gloucester would be close enough to Salem if Salem Willows is full.

RE: Picacho Peak Az

We always stay at the state park too. If you are into hiking, the hike up the peak is one of my all time favorite hikes. We have done it 5 time. Not an easy hike, but fun!! Heres my pictures of it Hiking Picacho Peak

RE: Any solutions for high altitude refrigerator issues?

If anything it should be EASIER to light at night because the air is cooler and denser. Try this: Shut the fridge off in the middle of the day, then turn it back on and see if it will relight itself. My guess is it won't be able to relight itself then either. The only reason it lights off in the morning is because your husband lights it with a lighter. Things have also warmed up overnight; the fridge has some catch-up to do so it runs all day. It is probably the location of the igniter. If it's not where the air-fuel mixture is good for ignition, it can spark until the cows come home. It's not going to light. Right now the igniter is buried in a cloud of propane without enough air to light. Moving the spark farther from the orifice should do the trick. There's less air, but the same amount of fuel, so logic would dictate that the fuel has to dissipate into a larger area to get a good air-fuel mixture. You bring up some good points. DH has said that we have no trouble during the say because it never shuts off, and we DO have trouble at night because thats the first time it has reached temperature and shut itself down.

RE: Any solutions for high altitude refrigerator issues?

Soos.....any solution? I have similar issue on a Dometic fridge. Works fine at low altitude and on the road. At 9500', it didn't want to light. Thanks. No solution yet. It is still happening at higher altitutes. Last time we were at 8000 feet it went out at 10 pm. Its much easier to light if we wait til morning, start the genny, turn the fridge on AC then switch it to propane. there is plenty of spark, so it isn't that. we tried leaving the panel open to let air circulate but that didn't seem to help much. I think we might buy a small fan to keep the air circulating. Either that or try to get a larger orifice. i have searched high and low on the web and haven't seen a solutiion that works for us....yet.

RE: Trailer Village Grand Canyon ?

P.S. The last time we were there, we were warned to not leave our sewer hose attached. The crows/ravens will peck holes in your sewer hose to get at food from your kitchen sink. Found that out the hard way and are now the proud owners of a new sewer hose. They aren't kidding about the birds!!

RE: Regular or RV toilet paper?

Anything but Charmn. It is least likely to break up. We are rural and on septic system. Even our septic guy said avoid Charmin. Agree , most brands work fine. not Charmin. Its too good, I guess. also, the new and improved Angel Soft has given some people, including us, some issues. They don't ALL work. some create a mound because they don't disolve easy enough, but most brands that are septic safe should work. We use Kirkland brand from costco.

RE: Roll Call Alaska 2016

we also bought a truck camper for our trek to Alaska. What a great way to see the state! we took 5 days to do the Dalton, and spent 5 days in Wrangel St. Elias NP, not to mention driving the Denali highway twice. easier to do in a truck camper!!

RE: Trailer Village Grand Canyon ?

we were just there a few weeks ago. even tho it seems weird that some sites in the row are shorter than others, they really are. we had our truck camper in a 28' site and there is no way our 35' fifth wheel would have fit.

RE: 30 ft. 5er to Coldfoot

we did the whole road, in a truck camper. I wouldn't go much beyond Coldfoot towing a trailer, but you should be ok to that point. there is fuel and a decent restaurant there before you turn around.

RE: TC observations and questions, and Labor Day

I am truly envious of you folks who have started early enough in your years to have TC camped for over ten years already. I am just getting started, 2 years ago with a wonderful 50 day trip to Labrador, Newfoundland, Nova Scotia and Eastern US in our Palomino Bronco. Sold that and are now upgrading to a Lance 1181 and GMC 3500 and our next trip is Alaska for 80 to 90 days to see the northeast corner of our North American continent. We will be taking a short one week trip in the new rig end of Oct, this fall to iron out bugs before winterizing it and spending the winter planning our Alaskan trip in 2016. We just spent a whole week re-caulking all the seams on the walls and roof of the Lance 2005 to help make it last our next 10 years of adventures - got 3 more corners of the continent to see yet. cheers christl You will LOVE Alaska in a truck camper. We did it last year and traveling in the TC allowed us to get off the beaten path. We stayed all summer, did the Kenai, Juneau, Denali Highway twice, and all the way up to Prudhoe Bay on the Haul Rd. That was one of my favorite parts. My blog has an index on the right, and one of the labels is Alaska Trip. Try to stay late enough, end of August ish to see the Northern Lights. Amazing!! here are a couple of summary posts My thoughts on Alaskan trip highlights erc. Truck camper travel in AK My cat's thoughts on spending 5 months in a truck camper We are already in the camper for the weekend. Since we've been staying in Hades Hot Havasu, we try to escape to higher elevations every weekend.
