RE: Anyone canceling trips due to Corona virus?

We cancelled an April Vegas trip. May go camping instead.

RE: furnace fan

**snip** I would like to thank Doug as well as the others for their contributions to these rv forums. **snip** I keep a notepad in my desk drawer. When Doug or Old_Biscuit speak, I write it down. I include title, topic, date posted, by whom, and final solution, if disclosed. I'm patiently waiting for this solution. There is a wealth of knowledge on this forum but it can be difficult sometimes to root it out. Thank You to all that contribute.

RE: Psssst...wanna see a Wall?

Hence Change The Laws to allow federal enforcement. Certain current federal immigration laws rely on local enforcement and cooperation.

RE: Psssst...wanna see a Wall?

There are existing laws in place. Enforce them or change the laws the proper way, through congress. The only thing this wall will stop is area wildlife. Meanwhile, our vets deserve better.

RE: Homeless people coming to your favorite campground!

This is not the America I grew up in. I come from a family of 9, regular parents with 7 children. My father, with only a high school education, had a regular full time job working for the Houston Post. Mom was a stay at home mom, never worked a day in her life that I'm aware of. She did the car pools, PTA, girl scouts with my sisters, cooked and cleaned. Dads 40hr/week, single income took care of all household financial needs, allowing us to live comfortably in a decent neighborhood in the burbs. DW and I, while raising 3 children, both worked full time to achieve what our parents did with a single income. Daycare was BIG expense for us. Fast forward to present day. Today we expect both young parents to hold down two full time jobs to achieve the same. What has changed that prevents many young couples from achieving the same lifestyle without working a combined 160hrs/week? It's too easy for us to blame them, but is their lifestyle and unrealistic expectations the root cause? What changed?

RE: Homeless people coming to your favorite campground!

I will quote a comment you posted on a generator thread earlier today .... IF you buy a Honda you will pay more, but you will get more. Service, reliability, resale value and a proven generator. If you get a Communist China knockoff you will pay less but also get less and it might , maybe, produce the stated power output.... The same principle applies. This reminds me of people who take a cheap, budget cruise and then complain about the type of people on the ship.

RE: seal pulling out?

This happened to me last year, on both sides. It started like in your photo but got worse. I pulled it out, leaving it attached at the ends. Cleaned it, stretched it out and put it back in. Once I had a good fit, I put a few drops of superglue in the area where it started. So far so good.

RE: my travel trailer will be stationary throughout the year?

Foremost. They may not cover it if you plan to live full-time in it.

Motorcraft from the dealer. Not much price difference and I know they fit.

RE: Battery Maintenance

What brand converter do you have? My WFCO is stuck on 13.6V, too high for continuous float charge. I use a timer that allows it to charge 1 hr every five days.

RE: Soft & sometimes soggy ground

For the house, I cut a sheet of 1/2" plywood into 4 pieces of 2'X4'. I seal them with multiple coats of Kilt's and external house paint. I stack them 2 high under the tires. The bottom two that sink into the mud last about 6 years before needing to be replaced. I take the top two with me when we go camping. My landing gear rest on concrete cinder blocks.

RE: Would You Camp at a Place Like This??

Well ... some of these individual businesses may be coming close to what the OP would like for just their camping capabilities, fishing notwithstanding: https://oregonfishingclub.com/ Here's a clip from down lower on their webpage talking about use of RVs on the various private properties with fishing lakes - but notice some of their prices!: "With 13 of our fishing properties containing campgrounds, you are nearly guaranteed to find a campsite available at a moment’s notice. Our campsites are acquired by reservation only, and require a minor fee of $10 per night. Recreational vehicles are always welcome, and some sites even offer full hook-ups. All campsites have picnic tables, fire rings, porta-potties, garbage cans, and flat grassy areas where you can easily pitch your tent. Because we maintain all trails, roadways, docks, garbage cans, and toilets, you can rest assured that your campsite will be well-maintained and tidy. You will usually be the only people on a property at a given time, and won’t have to deal with noisy neighbors." A 10 year membership cost a $1700 one time fee + $50/month. That breaks down to $65/mo. That's a great deal if you use it.

RE: Would You Camp at a Place Like This??

I would gladly pay $120/nt at Jersey City, and everything it has to offer. It's on my bucket list. I can't see paying $50/nt to hide in the woods. If I was passing by and needed to dump & recharge, that's worth $25 for an overnight stop. I would be gone by 10am. It's not a destination to me.

RE: Generator

Measure the output voltage of the generator to assure proper voltage. Voltage may be low. What is your altitude? Plug a 1500w space heater into the generator, or similar load, and see how it operates on other loads. I suspect the generator is lacking either voltage, fuel or air. On Edit: if your camper has an electric water heater, use that as a load. Assure it has water in it. Plug your meter into an outlet inside the camper, start the generator. If voltage is not between 120 and 127VAC, Stop. If voltage is in range, turn on the water heater.what's the voltage?

RE: Winterizing versus Heating RV Interior

Even for those few times we get an overnight low of 28, I open my low-point drains and faucets. Let them drain for about an hour and close the low-point drains. Leave the faucets open. Never had a problem. You have a low of 32. Nothing to worry about.

RE: Disconnect/Shut off converter when inverter is on

Is the WFCO WF-8935AN charging profile a good match for your batteries? Maybe a better approach would be to get a standalone battery charger better suited for your batteries and just plug it in when you need it.

RE: Auto slider or manual

If your 2018 Rockwood has a rounded front cap, do you even need a slider? I realized AFTER installing a Pullrite I didn't need a slider. I have replaced the Pullrite with a manual slide Reese and have not needed to slide it back since installed 5 years ago. I will say I tried backing up with the manual hitch slid back and it is easier to back up with the hitch back towards the tailgate. The Pullrite was a PITA to deal with. More times than not it would not disconnect.
