RE: Figuring this power stuff has my head spinning

1. It will not help you with TV but most RVs have a 12 Volt outlet near the TV. I purchase a 12 volt multi-port USB adapter that will allow you to charge your phones from the house batteries. 2. Teach the kids to play board games or card games -- not to play with electronics. Plus you have family face time. 3. While not the best solution, you can always charge the house batteries by running your truck for a few hours. Depending on how often you camp, fuel may be cheaper than a generator.

RE: Figuring this power stuff has my head spinning

1. I do a lot of boondocking. I have never felt a need to upgrade my converter. 2. I did install a second 12 volt battery so I have two 12 volt batteries. I can camp 3 to 4 days before I need a recharge. Simply do not turn on a lot of light -- enjoy the outdoors. The refrigerator uses most of the power even when on propane. After 3 to 4 days I need to get water and want to move to a new campsite anyway. 3. I have never felt the need for an large inverter. I do have a small inverter that will run my computer. What to you plan to run that will need 110 volts. You are boondocking so enjoy nature. 4. On the last trip I did pick up a 3,000 watt Champion generator from Home Depot for less than $1,000 to run the A/C since we planed to camp at low elevation desert during the summer. At the high elevation of YS/GT you may not need the A?C

RE: sequoia national park

Since we are seniors, we stay in the park at the south entrance. Not much for small kids to do.

RE: How do you share camping expenses?

On my last shared trip I paid for the gas and campsite because I would have that cost anyway. My guest paid for and cook all the food. Very happy even if my cost was much more.

RE: staying in 5th wheel

1. Why not your son's address 2. I use My Home Address Link since I full time. Very happy. 3. Bills (credit cards and utilities for base home) are paid (drafted) automatically. Thus I only get about 12 pieces of mail a month. 4. Will the campground receive and hold your mail?

RE: 5th wheel or TT?

I have had both. First TT was in 1980's. Get a GOOD TT hitch like an Hensley or a ProPride. Sure they cost $ but not much more than a 5er hitch. With a cheep TT hitch and a poorly loaded TT (yes I have had each) there will be lots of White Knuckle Events while towing. With a good TT hitch there is really no reason to choose between a 5er and TT. They tow about the same. Each takes about the same time to "learn" how to hook up and back up. On one trip with my Hensley Arrow a wheel can off my TT while I was driving 70 MPH. I did not know it until a car pass me and flagged me down. Some people like Ford some like Ram and some like Chevy.

RE: Internet or Computer Problem

The problem is only with Chrome not Edge. I tried to uninstall and re-install with no joy.

Internet or Computer Problem DOUBLE POSTING SORRY

My laptop has Windows 10 with Chrome -- all up to date. For the last few days I am getting this type of screen when I go on line. It happens with all web pages. Do I have a computer problem or a connection problem. Refresh does not solve the problem. https://i.imgur.com/YzHyr4jl.png "border=0" https://i.imgur.com/m3zZPvb.pngClick For Full-Size Image.

RE: North rim of Grand Canyon?

If you can dry camp, check out Free Camping and Campendium for campsites on the left side of the road to the North Side NP. I think they call the area "East" GC. It is NFS land and at some places you can park within 100 yards of the GC edge. Beware, of COLD snow weather that time of year. I do not known when the NP and the road to GC closes for the winter.

RE: Slide out permanently out

If the roof is OK why go the the expense. The cost of the "shed" is about what a "replacement" used TT would cost.

Windows 10 run as Administrator

I have upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10. I am listed as an Administrator user yet Windows 10 keep asking "to run as administrator". How do I get W10 to understand that I am an administrator.

RE: Laptop dies when AC outlet is turned off.

Battery on it's last legs I do not think the battery is bad. It is less than 9 months old and I almost never use it. Is it instant or does it go thru the shutdown process? Goes off instantly.

RE: Laptop dies when AC outlet is turned off.

Yes it is an older laptop. I always use the shut down option, but this time I accidentally flipped the switch and was surprised that the laptop died.

RE: Laptop dies when AC outlet is turned off.

If you are flipping the switch on the strip, but leaving the computer plugged in, it sounds as though the computer still registers that it is plugged in and doesn't flip to battery power. If you unplug the computer, it goes to battery power...yes? This is what I am doing. And, if you only get 1/2 hour of power on the battery, I think you probably need a new battery. I can get over an hour from the battery. I stated the 1/2 hour so the reader would know the battery was not dead.

Laptop dies when AC outlet is turned off.

My laptop is plugged into a GE surge protected electrical outlet strip. The laptop battery is charged. The laptop will run more than 1/2 hour on the battery. If I unplug the AC power cord direct at the laptop the laptop continue to run on the battery. . . . :) However, it I flip the switch on the GE outlet strip the laptop dies for lack of power. . . :h . . . Does not make any sense to me. ????
