RE: Residential Refrigerator – Good or avoid?

OJ.....you answered the one question I had.....how often do you boondock. I went through the misery of a 4 door NoCold and eventually replaced with it with a Samsung residential. I will NEVER go back to a propane refer. With that said, I own a DP with a built-in generator, 8 AGM house batteries and 450 watts of solar. If I were buying a 5th wheel, I would really have to decide if residential was the way to go, but since you generally use FHU's, it makes for a much easier decision. With my Norcold, I would literally stand in front of the refer, picture where what I want was located and then quickly open the door and grab it, before I lost the cold air. With my residential refer, I'll stand there with the doors wide open and take my time deciding and retrieving what I need.

RE: Our annual Quartzite trip and more...

Captain.....have you seen all the sites at Quartzsite.....Camel Monument, played a round of golf, shooting range, book store with the old man and the banana hangar, fresh pie shop, half dozen flea markets, and of course, RZR trails and of course, the big tent.

RE: Full Hook-ups or no?

Boondocking or full hook ups.....neither is better than the other. Explaining why you dislike crowds and love the woods or someone explaining why they need plenty of electricity and amenities really isn't important. Do the type of camping you like and let others camp the way they like, without criticizing what the other is doing! That's why there are National Forest sites and motor coach resorts.

RE: Why do I still look at my tankl level gauges?

I know people spend hundreds of dollars on monitoring systems and then pretty much ignore them. When you dump, it's often more determined by where you're at and when you're moving onto the next campsite. I know the black tank in my Dutch Star is good for 2.5 days and is full. So every two days, I just hit the electric drain switch and the black tank dumps. My grey is always empty as I have a bypass on my SaniCon. To be fair, my electric toilets have a ight that goes form yellow to red as the tank nears full. I think people have a weird addiction to knowing exacty what's in their tanks, when it's not that big a deal. Often installing a SeeLevel or some other brand is a satisfying gadget installation.

RE: Escape window falls out

A feature that Newmar now uses, is an escape door in the bathroom. Pretty easy concept since there is often dead space behind the toilet. It would be a nice feature for other brands to adopt in the future. Has it been a big issue in the past, no, but sure gives you peace of mind. You may not feel like you can make it out that window, but you should at least be familiar with how it works. It's surprising what you can do when 1200 degrees is nipping at your butt.

RE: Input on a few models for FT

When we were looking for our first DP, we narrowed down the field, but kept coming back to one model. We asked the dealer to leave us alone and spent few hours over several different visits, just sitting in the motor home and mentally lving in the unit. We pictured doing day to day activities and which position woukd be comfortable for both of us in the evenings as we relaxed. It realy helped.

RE: Advice for a trip up the west coast

prepilot…..We do a similar trip every other year, except from Los Angeles. Not to burst your bubble, but you're wasting your time. The routes you're talking about will have you driving in the coach, more than camping. Driving a major highway in an RV, most can average 50-55mph. Driving the coast in either California or Oregon, you'll average about 35-45 mph and it will be exhausting.....lots of on and off the throttle and turns. If you really want to do this trip, bonzai via the shortest route from Reno, via I-5 to northern Oregon and then come back south, crossing back to the I-5 at the California/Oregon border. I'm not being fecitiuos, but with your schedule, you'll have just enough time to park in a campsite, eat dinner and prep for travel the next day. The trip you're talking about is at least a 14-21 day trip if you want to sight see and enjoy yourself.

RE: "303" Survey

Take a garden sprayer, fill it with 303 and spray your awnings.
