RE: Replacement Fridge or New Cooling Unit

https://maliasmiles.com/amish-cooling-units/ Norcold works with sealing the unit outside. I have the Norcold 2118 and the trick is to insure the center flap on the left door closes. I had to adjust the kinge and raise the door slightly, then silicone lube the contact points. Coldest spot is the left rear bottom shelf and yes it keeps ice cream on #5

RE: If you had a month...?

Utah is a must any time, lots to see & do. OR/WA coast, CO mountains, every single state has things to see and do.

RE: Best place to mount my generator?

In the bed of the truck forward of the rear axle is best for weight distribution. +1 a 25ft cord should reach it in the bed.

RE: 1st time boondocking and could not get our AC to work

At sea level, your genny should have enough power to run the AC, but, Hot and above 5000 feet? Try this: http://help.championpowerequipment.com/article/cklrbp8nzl-operation-at-high-altitude-jet Chum lee I live at 5000ft and my Champion 3500 runs one 15,000btu A/C. Let it worm a minute, turn off eco, and start the a/C. Turn everything else to gas, not auto on the fridge.

RE: Fence Post Mod - For water hose storage etc?

I use two 7 foot fence posts. One for my collapsible ladder and the second for my sewer hoses. I have a section of rain gutter that will slide into the fence post. That way I can store two sections of sewer hose and able to easily get them out. https://i.imgur.com/CPaahVfl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/EsXB4AXl.jpg You know the rain gutter can also be used as sewer hose support. The hose supports can be a little wobbly on unlevel ground and the gutters help keep it straight and flowing down hill.

RE: Good Sam Standby Sams

Stand by Sams was a good idea in its day. If you broke down it was great to have someone that lived in the area to help you get parts or recommend shops to help. Some would even provide you with transportation or a place to park or even tools to repair your rv. But it went away when The profit took over. No Profit in it so it along with our Highways magazine is a thing of the past. Just like service and honesty at CW. Good Sam was a great thing when it was RV oriented. Miss the good old days before it was just for PROFIT! Had similar with a M/C club. List of people and what they would help with, tools, transportation, trailer for broke down, work space etc. I put people up in my yard & helped with tools and shop for repairs. Country folks are used to helping others.

RE: Dumping Tanks in an Empty Full Service Site

They didn't pay for those campsite services so IMO their cheating.Who says they didn't? most parks have the same price for all spaces. To me, not a big deal. I'll bet it all goes to the same place. People who make a mess and leave it are a bad no matter where they do it. Who says they are all the same price? If you camped much you would find full service sits are more than a water/electric every where I have been, but I only camped 9 months last year.

RE: favorite RV travel app

RV Parky or Good Sam list sites ahead. We look at how many miles for the day, check the app and make a call, we have a reserved site when we arrive. If we find one full there is still time for another call. Both give ratings and basic CG info.

RE: Police, right place right time.

Well, well, well, 25 years patrolling that county. Not easy to catch the lead car in that situation, unless you where on a M/C. Old timer will recall county had them years ago, all that fun, and getting paid too.

RE: Stoped routine

what about fueling and getting the heck out of the pumps and not use the restroom, wash your hands, wonder the sales area looking for snacks, order a sub, get a drink, pick up the chips from the sales area, get in line to pay ....... all while someone else waits to use the pump. I do my checks while the truck is filling with fuel.. I don't go into the store to buy anything or use the facilities after the fuel stops filling the tank. I want out of there as soon as possible! I have seen these types of folks however, and yes, that is annoying... Mitch There in lays my point, people do it.

RE: Blue Beacon Truck Wash

As sidecar flip said, streaking beacon is their name, they will use the acid to remove bugs or heavy dirt, and it will etch your paint. Could always tell trucks washed there a lot as the paint was dull. They use the brightener on aluminum wheels & tanks not paint although there maybe over spray. I was a class 8 owner/operator and RV'er. As he said just ask for no acid and pick a time when there is not a lineup to wash, they do a decent job.

RE: Travel Trailer vs. Motorhome (my situation)

If you're going to move often, get a motorhome. If you're going to be at one place for extended periods, get a fifth wheel. Whats the difference on how often you move? You setup & take down with either to move. Setup times very similar, I have a buddy in a class A. We set up in about the same time, we both have auto level. Once setup we end up in my 5W with more room and seating. His advantage is he can make a sandwich w/o stopping. I prefer the short break.

RE: Buying out of state

Smog compliance (factory specs) should be the same for all 50 states. If you take delivery in CA - you *WILL* pay approx 10% in sales tax. Also (delivery in CA) you will most likely have to pay CA registration = big bucks. Take delivery out of state - or purchase in a state with no -or low- sales tax. Advice: Revise your purchase plans !!..:R BTW - "break in period" is no different for a Class C -vs- your car or pickup, or your personal preference. Look at the chassis/eng mfgr's handbook. . CA has stricter emissions laws than most other states. Just like all the warnings "this product is known to cause cancer in CA." Sure glad I don't live in CA, too many things I use would give me cancer if I did live there. http://www.californiacarlaws.com/smog-laws/
