DEF fluid

Is all DEF fluid the same? I usually buy the Blue DEF but it's now about $20. Our local hardware store has the Blue DEF and another one that is $12.99. I did buy the Blue DEF but just wondered if the cheaper one would be ok.

RE: Strange RV wiring.....

"and #4 copper will carry a lot of amperage. " EXACTLY, and when it chaffs on the chassis what is going to give...the #4 wire? The battery? I want a fuse right at the battery......No other way! #4 thhn has a lot of insulation, It would take a long time to rub through if ever. And most wiring I have seen running under an RV is in a loom which gives it even more protection.

electric RV appliances

I just watched a video from a large RV dealer. Not sure what all the brands are they carry,but he said he's noticing a trend for 2024 units that some manufacturers are not offering propane appliances. The units have 120/12 volt refridgerators and electric range tops and water heaters. I guess that's ok if you always have electric hookups and the electric never goes out. I love the freedom my propane appliances give me. I don't boondock a lot,but when I do I can go 4 or 5 days with my dual batteries and propane. Occassionally we may stop at a rest area and use the stove to heat up a meal and in colder weather,run the furnace to keep the camper warm. I know there's a big push to eliminate fossil fuels,but it seems that propane and camping have done the job for a long time and I don't see this changing in my lifetime. But I'm 71 so that may not be that long.

Trip from Pa to Georgia via Virginia and Tennessee

We are leaving the 17th heading down I-81 from Pa to Hungry Mother state park.Then to Parksville lake in Tenn off I-75. Anything I should know about the roads leading to those campgrounds?

RE: Strange RV wiring.....

If I am reading this correctly, having no protection from the battery to the first circuit breaker with 2 ft of #4 wire is no big deal. The wire coming from the pole into your home has no protection either. It's a short run and #4 copper will carry a lot of amperage. As to your other questions,I don't know.

RE: 12 volt transfer pump

I bought a 12 volt pump from Northern tools which hooks up to the battery. It works well since my water inlet is by the front of the trailer.I fill up a 6 gallon portable tank and then pump the water from there into the water fill on the camper.It works well.

RE: Interlock kit

You should probably not be messing with electrical panels, you seem to lack the basic understanding of how they work/supposed to work.Agree. I was an electrician for 45 years and had my own business for 34 years. You would be amazed at some of things I have seen. Electricity is not something to mess around with. You could start a fire or get someone electricuted!

RE: Indian Boundary Campground closure

https://www.recreation.gov/camping/campgrounds/251438 Decent road in coming from the Cleveland side. A bit easier to get to than Indian Boundary as well. Every bit as popular too. I'm a bit partial to Harrison Bay SP (also close to I-75). https://tnstateparks.com/parks/harrison-bay Have you been to Chillowee? How is that one and how's the road in?

Indian Boundary Campground closure

I received a text from Recreation.gov that Indian Boundary Campground in Tennessee will be closed from August 16th, to September 20th due to public safety concerns. We have 2 reservations there during that time. What does it mean public safety? Is anyone familiar with what is going on? This is the second time I have had a reservation at a federal campground canceled a month before we would be there. And both times there was just a vague explanation. Can anyone recommend another campground either state or federal along I75 in Tennessee.

RE: Tanks on 5th wheel, how many and how do they work?

I have had the plastic handles come off. They can be replaced easily. I have used a 1/4" wing nut screwed onto to the threaded rod temporarily to operate the valves.

RE: 2024 Trip Planning

I rarely stay at FHU campgrounds.I prefer the space and beauty of state and federal parks so I can't help you there. Now Yellowstone has Fishing Bridge which is FHU. I would really suggest staying in the park as it's as big as Rhode Island.I would say 4 days minimum in Yellowstone.5 days would be better.If you stay outside the park,it takes at least 30 minutes or more to just get into the heart of the park and an hour or so of driving to get from one attraction to another.

RE: Samsung Inverter Refrigerator.

Samsung phones are great. Their refridgerators suck. My Aunt has one and several months after the warranty ran out,the refridgerator portion stopped working. They bought it at Lowes but Lowes refused to help.After a day and a half of calling,she finally got through to customer service it took 3 days for a serviceman to get there.He spoke little English and was very rude. She asked him a question and he said " I go" and pointed to the door.It cost almost $500 to fix a fridge less than 4 years old. When I posted about it on Facebook I got a ton of replies about people who had similar issues with Samsung appliances.

RE: Moody Bluff Campground,Tennessee

Let's try again - Google maps says it's the overflow campground loop on the state park map. Go to https://reserve.tnstateparks.com/warriors-path/campsites Then click on the Moody Bluff Campground tab.Thanks for the info.I looked at Google Earth and see where it is now.

RE: Moody Bluff Campground,Tennessee

Try searching the moody bluff campground.I did. I found a video of the campground but it doesn't show on the state park map.

Moody Bluff Campground,Tennessee

We have stayed at Warriors Path State park's main campground a few times on our way to and from Pa to Texas. I was just browsing the web and came across Moody Bluff campground in the same state park.It looks much nicer than the main campground. But I can't find it on the campground map. Have any of you stayed there and where exactly is it located?

RE: i pad or ?

For bill paying or email where I have to type, a laptop is more convienent. Unless you are really desperate to save space/weight just take both. You can get a separate keyboard for tablets.

RE: Hocking Hills OH and New River Gorge WV suggestions?

For New River Gorge, Pipestem and Bluestone state parks are nice. They are not right at the gorge but 90 minute drive from Pipestem and 60 minutes from Bluestone. Pipestem is one of the nicest state parks we've ever been to. They have everything.Horseback riding,archery,indoor and outdoor pools,tennis,golf and minature golf,nature walks and boating. They also have 2 restaurants.One you take a table car to get to.
