RE: Suburban water heater gas valve stays open no flame

Is it possible I need a new module board? My board died. Although I did not smell gas, I could hear the main valve open, but could not hear the electrostatic spark. I had a mobile repair tech come and replace it under warranty. It took more time to find my warranty paperwork and pay him than it did to replace the board. The new board is still working 2 years later.

RE: Charging battery with Honda 2000

Your onboard converter will "demand" as many amps as it needs to charge your batteries. Should you be on eco mode it may ramp up the Honda if the converter pulls a lot of amps initially. Once the battery begins to get a decent charge it will spool down again so no harm done. Ditto - not sure about the sugar beets.

RE: Paying for public campgrounds

At my favorite campground, the host says to pay with a check. Previously thieves dropped some sticky rod in the slot and retrieved the envelopes.

RE: Solar Panel

Sorry I was not clear, I was asking for a link to the panels with built in charge controllers. The link you posted is a conventional seperate panels and charge controller. Oh, OK. I guess I missed the mark. I guess I should have written "built on", not "built in".

RE: Slide Chatter

I am interested to find out what's said here. Mine does not "chatter" but it does sound sticky as it extends and retracts.

RE: Solar Panel

I bought a new trailer Artic Wolf 305ML. It is pre wired for solar power. My question is do I just plug in a panel or do I need to buy a controller? You can buy panel(s) with controllers attached.

RE: Northwestern Nevada

Looking at a map...see Denio Junction on 295 north of Winnemucca? Go west on 140 about 15 miles. Bog Hot road on the right. Maybe 5 miles to the hot springs...and the whole outdoors to enjoy. Gary Haupt Thanks, yes, I am looking at Youtube, Google Maps, and Google Earth and beginning to get my bearings. This forum has been really helpful.

RE: It sure is complicated.

I just got back from a relaxing, uncomplicated, very enjoyable camping trip. What was the question again? :) Where did you go?

RE: Northwestern Nevada

Does this help? If it does, you're welcome. Looks like anywhere north of Reno is a potential site. Thanks - I already have the dark sky finder. Am really looking for some "go here" recommendations.

Northwestern Nevada

I am looking for referrals to dry camping / boondocking locations in Northwestern Nevada. I want to be isolated as the goal is to find the darkest skies. We do photography of the stars. Can anyone give me a referral to a site?

RE: It sure is complicated.

Why does anyone even do it? When I took delivery of my trailer, I failed to anticipate the parking lot exit and drove the right side off the curb. Now I am a "turning fool". You can't learn from words or listening. You have to do it. My sweetheart has learned to reduce our battery usage and I even heard her say, "we'll run the trailer this weekend like we had the batteries on Apollo 13". I was shocked that she actually learned they batteries are not unlimited. After time, all the stuff that seems complex to you will be second nature.

RE: Dang Squirrels

My Dad used to trap squirrels in his back yard. Used a "Have-a-Heart" trap. Works well. Then he'd put the trap with the squirrel still in it to a local golf course, and release the squirrel. Once day he got "caught" by a grounds-keeper. They guy was upset. Not sure why as there were no RVs on the fairways or greens.

RE: To tire shine/gloss or not?

It's not "recommended" per say, it just looks cool. Are Armorall, 303, Wesley’s, Meguiar's pretty much the same ingredients?

To tire shine/gloss or not?

Is the use of a tire shine/gloss product recommended or not? For the trailer tires? Tow vehicle tires? Passenger vehicle tires?

RE: people ask why i do it

a lot of people don't get why I sink enormous amounts of time and effort into camping. burn my toy budget on the camper and fight the weekend crowds since I have to work to do it............... this sums it up https://i.imgur.com/qJbZ1lLl.jpg Enjoy it while you can. You'll be at their High School graduations before you know it.

RE: satelte entena

They make a mount to put them on a trailer ladder, but to mount it permanently would not work since they have to point a certain direction to start with. I put my handle as much toward north as possible and even when slightly misaligned, it finds the satelites fine. I am not sure how it would do if my campsite made the handle face directly south.
