RE: Corona Virus and RV Travel Video

Interesting Flu Corona Deaths Comparison. As of March 10 2020, the corona virus outbreak had infected more than 100,000 people and killed more than 3,000 globally, the majority in China, where the illness was first detected in December. More than 750 people in the United States have been diagnosed, including at least 25 people who have died. By comparison, influenza — known as the common flu — has infected as many as 45 million Americans since October and killed as many as 46,000, according to estimates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The numbers for both diseases have risen since the published date. This is a surprisingly hard comparison to find in the media, CDC, WHO. I'm reading several BLOGS of people traveling around the world and they are running into border closure issues. Some are being told to leave but are not being allowed into other countries such as Morocco to Spain is a get out no go situation. These occurrences just started happening. The people were getting through borders but not now. Stay tuned.

RE: Buyer beware

A note about Simpson brackets. I used couple of them on my Lance repair 3 years ago. Now parting the camper I removed them for demolition. They had cracks in the corners. They did not give up yet, but looks like it would be only matter of time. Looks to me that they are not design for flexing TC do. I am able to inspect the brackets on my truck camper and all are in perfect condition. No surface rust, cracking or anything else visible.

RE: Buyer beware

The video makes me think of Sleepy's Rig when it was driven by SAB Consulting cross country to Tacoma for a make over. I recall some people in the past had issues with their slides, installing either steel unistrut or 1-1/2x2 angle under the slides to deal with bowing down. This looked like a decent job within a budget and reason to make a sturdy TC again. I watched most of it. I FF past parts I'm not needing to see. Having a 2000 S&S wood frame TC myself with probable similar issues, it was interesting to me. I have already made some similar repairs to the front but not the rear yet. https://scontent-sea1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/90377370_10217783764926022_6819700916862582784_o.jpg?_nc_cat=102&_nc_sid=8024bb&_nc_ohc=RtTp1ah5XUwAX_g3Q3B&_nc_ht=scontent-sea1-1.xx&oh=e3c0befa5909f5dd1bf45ab11f6d3702&oe=5E9F62F1 https://scontent-sea1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t31.0-8/p720x720/10535784_10202964596936084_2640047396649012685_o.jpg?_nc_cat=108&_nc_sid=8024bb&_nc_ohc=l1y_LHRMHLsAX-B9dhR&_nc_ht=scontent-sea1-1.xx&_nc_tp=6&oh=7ff93896e67100cbfb657dbc9bdf9fa0&oe=5E9DDE16 https://scontent-sea1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t31.0-8/p720x720/10634038_10202964596856082_6869267040901401865_o.jpg?_nc_cat=111&_nc_sid=8024bb&_nc_ohc=ZDG3R2nQwT4AX9z4pbw&_nc_ht=scontent-sea1-1.xx&_nc_tp=6&oh=1ef1d36f7dc383b4dd1a8c8abfe4c565&oe=5E9D3AC0 https://scontent-sea1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t31.0-8/p720x720/10450105_10202964595776055_8639519328680048260_o.jpg?_nc_cat=102&_nc_sid=8024bb&_nc_ohc=wPOETLvCFHEAX8kGgAo&_nc_ht=scontent-sea1-1.xx&_nc_tp=6&oh=e522395e0587bd6ca98cd942f7ed97c3&oe=5E9C625E Black square at bottom of jack bracket is an awning bracket. https://scontent-sea1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t31.0-8/p720x720/10553687_10202964592815981_4406533569926805599_o.jpg?_nc_cat=101&_nc_sid=8024bb&_nc_ohc=ir2XOzxFUmQAX--azgw&_nc_ht=scontent-sea1-1.xx&_nc_tp=6&oh=e77fea5d61673c69f92a13c079501d43&oe=5E9EDAEA I Made a bottom support using a Simpson framing bracket bolting into the underside of the 2x3 on the bottom of the TC wall. Not perfect but much more stable. It supports from the bottom and holds toward the inside of the TC under the wing beneath the fridge. I have to do similar work to the right rear where there was a window leak that refused to be fixed until I installed a drip edge over the window. Problem solved.

RE: Corona Virus and RV Travel Video

My 88 YO brother walks Tule Springs, Floyd Lamb Park a lot and Red Rock Canyon. He's trying to get me to go down there during the shut down. I'm thinking about it. Red Rock Canyon is climbers destination from whole West Coast. Just like the wall in Index, WA. But since yesterday whole country has traveling restriction, so you might be a bit late for making decision? He's not a climber anymore at 88 but he likes the drive out to Red Rock from Summerlin and walking the trails along the park's loop road, especially the one where the blocks of stone were removed for buildings long ago. I'm not aware of any travel restrictions driving.

RE: Corona Virus and RV Travel Video

Hopefully this train wreck will turn around soon. It would be a big improvement if they could just get some hand sanitizer back on the shelf. I did manage to get some toilet paper at Fred Meyer. Some Camco RV/Marine, 4 small rolls, 3.99. As I entered the checkout line, people asked where I got it. I suspect that supply is gone now too.

RE: Corona Virus and RV Travel Video

Top of the hour news just said a large increase is expected in 4 days due to the increased testing. I'll be interested to see if that comes to fruition. Market breakers kicked in again as market continues downward trend. People who vape have more complications? Hopefully this train wreck will turn around soon.

RE: Corona Virus and RV Travel Video

People are losing their minds over this hyped-up Coronavirus. It's a complete hoax. Not enuf people are dying to make this virus relevant. The N1H1 killed 12,000 people before the prior president took any action. Yet there was no hoarding, no closing of schools and churches, no closing of bars and restaurants, no panic, no nothing. What makes Coronavirus worthy of destroying the US? 3 Things make it bad: 1) It is at least 3 times more contageous than "normal" flu. 2) Many people will be contageous days before showing any symptoms or knowing they have it. Some will never shows any symptoms, but still be contageous. These folks will spread it into the elderly high risk population. 3) It is 10 to 20 times more fatal than "normal" flu. So, instead of 1 out of 1,000 infected people dying, 1 or 2 out of 100 will assume room temperature. 4) Even if you survive, it can leave permanent lung scaring that can reduce lung capacity by 20% to 30%. Oops, that's 4. :) Its no hoax. It is real. It is a killer and it is headed your way. I realize as Mayor of Flat Rock, you must carry out your duties of office and protect your citizenry. It is concerning and people need to take appropriate measures to protect themselves as they see fit. I have heard the fatality percentage number is expected to drop as more people are tested and a greater over all sampling of the herd is taken. I've also heard that some of the younger victims are frequent vape users and lung damage may have already occurred. This thing will pass before long but it is expected to become a seasonal disease. As a society, we cannot have overreactions and market collapses every year. Sanity must reclaim it's place.

RE: Corona Virus and RV Travel Video

As for our plans this year, we're going camping! We'll keep monitoring what happens with the outbreak but it will only limit places and events we might go to avoiding large tightly packed crowds. Hiking, fishing, camp fires will be safe. Camping and traveling to get where we're going has practically zero risk. I may back off on salads and uncooked foods for a time. The virus is here now, out of the bottle so to say. I understand to expect it every year now as part of the normal cold and flu season. I expect there will be a shot for it before long.

RE: Corona Virus and RV Travel Video

Should be around the campfire, I think. Any way, if the video is in person, did she not tell him to stay away from Western WA? Must not like her brother. ;) No offense intended, but Western WA is ground zero for the US. That retirement center is ground zero for our area. There are a couple hot spots around the country.

Corona Virus and RV Travel Video

I just watched this video by one of the bigger YouTube RV channels, "Long Long Honeymoon". He is interviewing his sister, a Doctor at a Tacoma Hospital. She delivers some good information. If this does not belong here, do what you must. Coronavirus & RV Travel -- SHOULD YOU CANCEL PLANS? (with Dr. Elizabeth Wheeler, MD)

RE: Seven Truck Camper Videos - Seattle RV Show 2020

I can afford a purchase in phases without financing but cannot fund the entire purchase at once. I cannot save as fast as prices are going up, so delaying a partial purchase just makes it less affordable on a single income. My friend, that tells you all you need to know about the housing bubble. It is unsustainable. I saw this same thing last go 'round in WA. I sold my house and sat on the cash until the whole shebang collapsed, then turned around and bought 4 acres of property from the bank for 17 cents on the dollar, with some 2nd growth red cedar and fir to boot. The previous owner paid $135k and lost it. I gave them $24k cash. I had a well drilled, 4 bedroom septic installed, and 360 amp service put in. I set up an RV pad and built myself a small cabin as well. Then prices went stupid again and ..... I sold it off for a 300% profit after using it for more than 5 years. And I'll do it all over again when this one crumbles to the ground. Do yourself a favor and keep your powder dry. I need to sell my home and move into my rental for 2 of 5 years to convert it back to a personal home to free up the money and move out of Seatroit. Good time to sell with retirement, increasing rental regulations, and travel on the horizon.

RE: Seven Truck Camper Videos - Seattle RV Show 2020

Thank you very much for posting the camper videos. It's nice to see so many different campers. I was disappointed with the Pleasanton RV Show this year, as they only had a couple brands of campers. Great Job! Spaced-Out Bob (Chan) in Oakland, Calif. Glad you enjoyed the videos. I have continued my research and spoken with others who are looking for new campers too. A couple of us have saddled up more firmly on the AF 865. A 10.5 version would be my choice and Bigfoot makes a mid bath 10.4 mid dry bath. I'd prefer a wet bath and another wardrobe cabinet space. Take care.

RE: Seven Truck Camper Videos - Seattle RV Show 2020

Of course you can always try to find something already built in a place you like and not have to deal with all the Bull Poop. Friend of mine just retired, sold his North Bend home he built 30 years ago and bought a place on the Columbia North of Daroga State Park. He's got room for his trailer and toys on the property.

We are beginning to look at manufactured homes and park models for future property. That's an interesting development.

RE: Seven Truck Camper Videos - Seattle RV Show 2020

Please note the corrections. My two show favorites were First In Show to the ARCTIC FOX 865 Mid Wet Bath and a close second to the NorthernLite 10-2 Which Adventurer is the 856 ARCTIC FOX 865 Mid Wet Bath,they don't show a 856 SEE CORRECTION so I assume it is either the 89RB or the 86FB..Adventurer truck campers are underrated on the internet in my opinion..I have been in a 86RB and it was rock solid and easily compares to Lance in my opinion.. ARCTIC FOX 865 Mid Wet Bath I goofed, this is it. I did find video of it with the Eagle Cap Models. How did the AF 865 seem room wise,you had issues filming the 865 which you noted..

RE: Seven Truck Camper Videos - Seattle RV Show 2020

GOOD GRAVY BATMAN!!! Messed that one up. These are the corrections. ARCTIC FOX 865 Mid Bath was my winner. Adventurer 910 Mid Bath was a comparison to the 865. The dinette/fridge slide opened wide and removed the separation and privacy between bedroom and dinette/kitchen areas. I went through the posts and edited in the corrected information. Sorry about that Chief...

RE: Seven Truck Camper Videos - Seattle RV Show 2020

Another thing I'd like to hear opinions on are the HappyJack -vs- Rieco Titan. I prefer the Rieco Titan Jack, it looks more substantial. Rieco Titan all the way. I was looking around for information on Atwood jacks, no longer manufactured, but found this tidbit. How do I replace my Atwood Electric Jacks? We recommend replacing your Atwood Electric Jacks with Rieco Titan electric jacks since the bolt pattern is the same as Atwood's electric jacks. Note that you will be required to replace the female plug on your camper with a Rieco Titan plug, since the Atwood female plug is not compatible with the Rieco Titan male plug.

RE: Seven Truck Camper Videos - Seattle RV Show 2020

Thank you for the videos. I'm a quarter inch over 6'4. I was looking at the newer Northern Lite 10'2. Was worried about the interior height after seeing West Coast Roller video awhile back. With your video gives me hope so I need to go look at a newer Northern Lite 10'2 and see if I clear the AC unit :). I wished Bigfoot would raise the interior height to 6'8 and give us a real queen bed 60x80. They are missing out on sales from us taller folks :) The NorthernLite Rep. said they did raise the ceiling a couple inches in the new models after the fire destroyed all the old molds. You can see I have at least 4" head clearance and I'm 6'-1". Another thing I'd like to hear opinions on are the HappyJack -vs- Rieco Titan. I prefer the Rieco Titan Jack, it looks more substantial.
