RE: App for fuel / generator storage?

We use Reminders app on our iPhones. My husband gets a reminder to start 2 generators once a month, water potted plants every two weeks, pickup mail, remove and clean sub tank once a year, etc. LOL

RE: “I was shocked with just how white it was there,” she said.

I actually see more minorities camping than I see on the beach and majority of beaches are free. This racist stuff is getting old.

RE: Norcold Fridge Problem

We had a blockage in our 8 month old Norcold Fridge. We had to cancel our month vacation. We had Norcold tech come out on vacation and nothing was accomplished. So we headed home and took the RV to our local our RV shop. It took 6 weeks for Norcold to do anything. After testing,etc. Norcold decided to install a new cooling system. We ended buying a 4 year warranty on the unit.

RE: Wally Satelite

Dish came out to the motorhome and installed the Wally receiver and external hard drive . So far it works great. If we have any problems they gave us a number for tech support.

RE: Dish & Wally Receiver

We replaced our Dish DVR receiver with a Wally, plus external hard drive. We were on vacation and couldn't get satellite reception in the living area until after 12:00 P.M. We had no problem with the bedroom TV. It was so weird. We even tried it at home and had the same results.

RE: Creative ways to house Wally in Trailer

We just got a Wally for our bedroom TV. We have a shelf under the TV for it. We added an 2TB external harddrive to the receiver so we can record shows. The guy told us we can watch recorded shows incase we don't get satellite. I have to figure that one out, LOL.

RE: Auto Generator Start

We have MarCell Temperature Alert for our dog. It let you know right away if you lost power and if the temperature is out of range.. You get messages, email and phone call alerts from your smart phone. Video

RE: Air Conditioning Problems

We have a 35ft. motorhome with ducted air and we replaced a ceiling vent fan with a Atwood Air Command 13,500 BTU non-ducted Air Conditioner. We spend a lot of time in Palm Desert and the River. It makes a huge difference having both airs running.

RE: Lets Talk Covers

I do not use a cover but the people who have invested in Calmark covers seem to like them. Calmark covers Calmark covers are the best.

RE: Winnebago and the Workhorse

We have the 2003 35ft. Itasca Suncruiser with the workhorse chassis vortech engine. We were dry camping last week and this couple came up to us and wanted to buy our rig. They have a Winnebago with a Ford engine. We told them we are going to keep our rig and get a new paint job, new couch and new flooring, etc. We are happy with our rig and we really never had any major problems with it.

RE: Keeping fridge cool in high 90s temps

When it's hot I usually run the fridge on propane. I have two little battery operated fans one for inside the fridge and the other one for the outside compartment. I also turn the temperature up to eight. This is our second Norcold refrigerator. The first one last 8 months. Norcold ended up replacing the cooling system. I ended up getting a 4 year warranty.

RE: remote temperature monitoring

Do a search on MarCELL Cellular Connected Monitoring System. Dave We have MarCell.. I have no complaints at all. We spend a lot of time in the desert. The only thing you need is your cell phone for messages, phone calls and email alerts, plus the unit.

RE: Battery replacement brands

We have Optima marine batteries. We've had them around 4 years and they still work fine. We have Optima and they are great long lasting batteries. We are on our second set, not cheap.

RE: Bedroom AC?

My sister and her husband has a 5th wheel and they replaced one of their vents in their living area with a DOMETIC ATWOOD AIRCOMMAND 13,500 BTU, NON-DUCTED A/C, NON-DUCTED It made a huge difference in their RV. They spend a lot of time in Parker, AZ. on the river. We did the same thing with our motorhome, best thing we ever did.

RE: Keeping cool

We have friends from Arizona that sold their motorhome and bought a truck and trailer because when they were on the road the motorhome never got cool inside with the dash air on. We said why didn't you turn your generator and air conditioner on when you are traveling. . They said they didn't know you could do that, LOL.

RE: Length and public campsite availability lately?

We do both dry camping and RV Parks and never had problems parking our 35 ft. motorhome, except one place in the Red Woods, Ca. We ended up staying in an RV Park. Go for the 30 ft. if I were you.

RE: Keeping cool

I would say we drive 90% of the time with the generator and air conditioner on. Sometimes we have two air conditioners running at the same time.

RE: Motor homes and earth quakes.

Earthquakes are not going to stop us for driving on the 395 to the High Sierra's this month. I have been on the freeway during the Northridge earthquake. The road was a rolling. The other day I was sitting on bleachers watching my grandson play in his the Little League All Star game in San Clemente while the Ridgecrest earthquake was going on. The ground was rolling and it seemed like forever. The game continued 5 minutes later.

RE: Newby Dry Camping Questions

We carry a little Honda 2000 generator with us when we dry camp. It's quiet and doesn't use much gas. We use propane for the fridge and hotwater tank.
