RE: Living full time on my land in Plumas or Lassen County

Does anyone have any solutions or creative ideas? If there is an Official monitoring the 120 days, then the staffing levels and budgets are far more extensive then I thought the state budget allows.

RE: Dry as a bone,…again

...do you leave the water running while doing dishes or washing your hands? Are you sure the outside shower is turned on slightly. Good points. I say so since both of these issues bit me. I had to tell a guest in my RV not to turn on the sink, continue on with her conversation, reach for the soapy dish, rinse it, place it in the drying rack, continue talking, grab another dish. Seemed obvious to me. I also accidentally left my outdoor shower dripping. It is amazing how quickly a slow drip consumes storage capacity.

RE: Need Some help with my battery system

Lots of good information here.

RE: dish pay as go plan

I have never paid an activation fee. When I camp, I call DISH and they turn it on. At the end of 30 days, it goes off. On the next trip, I call again and repeat. Agree, that's how I do it... the poster above me stated that they "pause" it after each weekend.... I was always told that pausing will create an activation fee? I will try to call again.. They do their best to upsell you on premium content.

RE: Forest river wildwood 273qbxl

>> Forest river wildwood 273qbxl Mine is a Forest River Wildwood 27RKSS - although I know RKSS stands for Rear Kitchen Single Slide, I do not know what yours means. The water heater control board in mine went out. That was a common problem. Perhaps you could ask about that. There were other issues that you just have to learn as you go. The thermostat needed to be set to D3. "D" for dofferential. When at "D1" the AC and heater would try to come on at the same time. I had terrible sound system static initially only to find out there were metal shavings bouncing around on the speaker cones. Mostly just sloppy workmanship, but I'd do it all over again if asked.

RE: RV towing on 5 through San Francisco

Where are you coming from? Where are you going to? Unless you want a tight squeeze through San Francisco, there are better routes, for example, to go North to the Redwoods. It is hard to know how to answer this question.

RE: CA 1 from Monterey (Marina) to Half Moon Bay

Thanks! We found a Costco in Santa Cruz and have been using Google Earth to see if we'll be able to do it. Fingers crossed.Santa Cruz is quite a bit north of Monterey. I hope that shows in your plan.

RE: bad starter......

...suggested pushing or towing with another vehicle to the shop... Seems like a questionable mechanic if he suggested this. He should have known better.

RE: Quad Bike mounted to ladder?

A while back a contributor here wrote, "never use the ladder for anything other than climbing to the roof". I've used that as gospel since then.

RE: Can1500w inverter or Honda 2k gen work 900w Microwave

I've been able to run mine while the Honda 2k powers it. In fact, I had to tell the DW to let the generator run for a minute before slapping the MW on. I had to explain to her the generator needs a minute to warm up. She literally pressed the ON button just as the generator fired. I have never tried an inverter.

RE: Maybe a new low?

Well, the good news is you don't seem to be letting the disability stop your wife. Bad news is, as we all know, trailers are poorly constructed. When you beef it up, put it on your list of other repairs you've done. I bet you have a list already.

RE: i-5 san diego thru LA rest stops?

I don't think there are any. I've driven that stretch a dozen times or so. I don't think you'll find any rest stops until you're past the Grapevine.

RE: Another Redwoods Question

The RV park that the OP referred to (and named correctly) is Ancient Redwoods RV Park, not "Giant". http://ancientredwoods.net/ Also, a note on Mattole Rd. out to the campground and beach; it's a *very* rough ride. The road is narrow, mostly bond shaker potholes, and with many "ups and downs". Thanks for pointing that out. I was mistaken.

RE: Road conditions

Can anyone provide me with information regarding the abilities of a 36' Class A with a tow vehicle traveling from Visalia,Ca. via Hwy 152 to Morgan Hill,Ca.? I just want to know if there would be any elevation or grades that would challenge my rig. Again this is Hwy 152 (Pacheco Pass) in Central California. Not too windy or narrow. Moderately steep downhill heading west.

RE: Recommendations for a noob...

Plan on driving slower than you'd normally drive when in the truck without the camnper. 10 mph slower in general.

RE: Another Redwoods Question

We got a spot at Ancient Redwoods RV Park, thanks to this Forum. Now what do we not want to miss while there. Thanks so much. Betsy. We just got back Monday May 3 from there. I don't think they call it "Ancient". I think they call it "Giant". There's a lot to do in the park, including walking down to the River and Movie night. We also drove out Highway 36 to Ruth Lake and went to the "Giant Tree" at 40.34973364899088, -123.99245074621633 on Mattole Rd. http://www.winecountrystarparty.com/images/18414.jpeg width=300 http://www.winecountrystarparty.com/images/20210430_170854.jpg width=300 http://www.winecountrystarparty.com/images/18396.jpeg width=300
