RE: TR: Utah, parks, friends and a few weeks with my wife

Great trip report! We've done most of that, but some in separate trips and not that museum. Happened upon the land speed trials by accident one year while boondocking at the flats. We were invited to join one crew for dinner. It was a great experience.

RE: Your Favorite Boondocking Pics

Nice pics. Oh how I wish we could go out for some camping right now.

RE: Travel trailer necessities

parking chocks Levelers A good sewer hose and a good support like a slunky Disposable gloves and hand cleaner A clear hose connector to visually see when your tank is empty or running clear Holding tank treatment Just some basics, but there is so much more. Create a good checklist using Excel for yourself and use it for every single trip. Make a menu plan on one side and ingredients list on the other, add things to do at the house before leaving such as stop mail, set light timers, turn off water to all toilets, washing machine, and ice maker, etc. Thanks a lot! Yeah I was trying to see what I can get away with for at least our first trip and go from there. Here's what I came up with also. Pretty much everything you just said, I just dont want to miss anything. Wheel Chocks Leveling blocks Sewer hose with support and clear connector white rv fresh water hose water pressure regulator valve water filter rv extension cord holding tank treatment surge protector? If you can think of anything else, let me know. Yes, on the surge protector since you will be primarily camping at RV parks. That's a must. We finally just had one permanently installed in our unit. As for the water filter. We used to do it, but it became such a hassle and we found we really didn't need it. If you'll be camping in cooler/colder months, an additional heating source. Using strictly your online furnace will eat up propane like crazy. In warmer months, but not hot enough for the AC, a fan of some sort to move the air.

RE: Giving it up

I'm so sorry about your wife. Doing what is best for the both of you is all that matters right now.

RE: Opinions on Grand Design Fifth Wheels

For what it's worth, we have a 2011 Heartland Bighorn, considered full time even by the company. I've always kept my eye out on other models in case we ever have to replace ours. We take our FW to a local tech for maintenance work that is beyond us and I noticed a Grand Design there. I said to the tech that they're nice sturdy units. His reply? Not as much as you think, yours is much better and higher quality.

RE: What do you do?

I paint, catch up on reading, play cards, definitely drink cocktails of every kind.

RE: Grand Teton Campgrounds new reservation deal

No thank you to Gros Ventre. Years back I would've told you yes, but we drove through this last fall to look at it again and they added sites that made the back in tight and near zero maneuverability just to drive around! Sad.

RE: Removed over/stove...replaced with two burner induction.

I'm one of the rare who prefer a propane range and oven and would prefer a convection/microwave combo too, but have a microwave only. There are a lot of things that I cook in the oven and on the range. Since we primarily dry camp or boondock and prefer not to use the generator, having the range and oven gives me a multitude of cooking options, not to mention cooking over the fire or on a grill outside. We looked at the induction cooking tops, but opted out due to it's reliance on electricity.

RE: Do I need my fan on when cooking in the oven?

In RV's wouldn't it be safer to use an ionization type smoke detectors especially since RV's burn faster? Someone smarter than me should probably answer that question but in my case, the smoke detector still goes off quickly if there's any smoke from cooking. So now, instead of going off EVERY time we cook, it only goes off if we burn something. Makes sense. Thanks.

RE: Do I need my fan on when cooking in the oven?

Since we dry camp most of the time, we don't have ability to run the fan... The light and the fan on the range hood work on 12v, so it should work just fine even when boondocking. For the OP, you only "need" to run the fan to exhaust smoke or odors, same as you would at home. Our light and fan is in the over the range microwave and hence not 12V.

RE: Mora CG or Kalaloch CG -- Olympia NP Length?????

The approach to the camp may be the problem. I've not been there, but this is often the problem at a lot of campgrounds - the site is good, but the approach is not.

RE: Do I need my fan on when cooking in the oven?

In our Grand Design Reflection there isn't any exhaust fan of either kind. We do have a small window at the back of the stovetop and a max air fan in the ceiling close to where the stove/oven is but that's it. So I don't think it's necessary to use yours. We did change out our smoke detectors though as the original ones installed were going off constantly. They would even go off when making toast when there was no visible smoke. They were ionization smoke detectors and we switched them out with the photoelectric type and they don't go off from cooking anymore unless we truly have smoke in the RV. In RV's wouldn't it be safer to use an ionization type smoke detectors especially since RV's burn faster?

RE: Do I need my fan on when cooking in the oven?

Since we dry camp most of the time, we don't have ability to run the fan, so I either crack open a window in the kitchen or if the weather is good, I open the door. I do both always, when cooking whether stove top or oven. We also found that the toaster (or most any kind of cooking), sets off the alarm, but opted to take back the toaster since we could only use it when hooked up, which rarely happens, and running the generator for the toaster is not worth it. Instead we placed a small fan on the shelf near the alarm and run it when cooking.

RE: August cammping

I have no clue what it will be like and am only hoping that it will return to somewhat normal. Quite a few campgrounds were busier than normal in the Yellowstone area outside the park and the park itself was busy, but we got a site at a popular CG doing what we have always done - camp close by overnight and head over early to snag a spot then return for our 5th wheel.

RE: I just got the new RV Magazine

Issue #1 of “RV” reminds me strikingly of “Sunset” magazine. Like “Sunset”, this new “RV” appears to be aimed towards younger, “woke”, well-off Silicone Valley-type Yuppies. That’s not us, and that’s not the campers we share our favorite campgrounds with. We don’t subscribe to “Sunset” anymore, and from my perusal of the first issue “RV”, I doubt that “RV” will ever become dog-eared as our old “Trailer Life” magazines always became. I do agree with you on this one and what appears to be the new audience, or what they think is the new audience.

RE: I just got the new RV Magazine

After reading this post and commenting, I picked up the issue and read through it. The format reminds me of a Better Homes and Garden or Real Simple magazine. In my opinion, this is geared towards the younger generation of RV'ers recently joining the trend in RV'ing with the onset of Covid19. Several commenters here stated how it was full of ads, so I decided to count them, first in the December, 2020 issue versus the January, 2021 issue. The old format, the December, 2020 issue has 58 pages and 34 ads, making it 59% ads. The new format, January, 2021, has 82 pages and 28 ads, making it 34% ads. What was missing was the extensive articles on how to install new products such as the "Bug Off!" or the Easy Start, but there were some good articles on the RV lifestyle and product reviews (ads) and the how-to review articles may come later.

RE: I just got the new RV Magazine

Oh gee - we got ours too and was impressed by the cover, but have not read it yet. Well, I guess if I find the same, I will not be renewing.
