RE: US 395 in California

Can't recall the city and I was in hurry to make a stop, but there is a place I want to go back to where famous Western movies had their shooting locations. Lone Pine

RE: Class C that's easy to fix?

are there any class C with a truck front, not a van front? Tiger is built on a stock chassis. I get mine serviced at the local Chevy truck dealer. The mechanics say it is the coolest thing they've ever seen on a Chevy chassis.

RE: Thetford Campa chem tank treatment availability?

Walmart said "out of stock" everywhere I looked. Thetford site does not list Campa Chem, now lists "Thetford’s new family of Campa-Fresh® holding tank treatments "

RE: 6 passenger toad for gas rv

Your way, the RV and the other vehicle must each have 6 belted legal passenger seats. Maybe turn this around: 6-seat tow vehicle and a trailer.

RE: Wagan inverters not suitable for lithium batteries?

Wagan, not wagon. If your computer is like mine, it has been "helping" you again.

RE: Boondocking and working with no electricity

My personal solution to not having enough capacity in the RV house batteries: go partially portable. I use this for boondocking with a CPAP, but it should work for a laptop. Buy two smallish "solar generators," which are really portable power supplies (PPS); these have built-in inverters and solar charging input ports. Add a 100W portable solar panel or "suitcase" unit. Use one PPS while the other one charges. Total cost on Amazon about $600. No permanent changes to the RV wiring. No professional installation needed. Lightweight so my bad back can handle necessary moving of the pieces. Portable so can serve as backup in the house when not in the RV.

RE: Lithium and DC-DC Charger?

I like to think that I belong to the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" school of RV tech. That makes me wonder what your issue really is. Have your power needs changed? If no, you might just consider putting in new batteries of the same type you have. If existing batteries are not AGM maybe upgrade to those if their physical size allows them to fit where the old batteries are now. Maybe you just want a project? OK. That beats COVID boredom. Wanting to try the newest trend? OK. No shame in that. Want to add charging from the engine? My 2006 GM truck has an isolator under the hood to keep the coach batteries from drawing down on the engine battery when the engine is off. The engine alternator (heavy duty) and shore power are my only two choices of power for charging the coach batteries. I rarely have shore power and the engine has done the job just fine since 2006. Yes, the Tiger is not a TC and is not demountable like your Lance, but there is undoubtedly a way to hook an isolator (I think they may be called separators now) into your system. Happy trails whichever path you choose!

RE: 2005 Sixpac D850 tech questions?

I once visited the SixPac factory and considered buying an 850. Still have this handout. Maybe it will help you? If not, I think they were bought out by Four Wheel Campers and maybe some old-timers at FWC can help you. https://i.imgur.com/P4VKvidl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/wbhMLMll.jpg

RE: Small Class C on Truck Chassis?

My vote is for the Tiger as long as you and your family and your stuff can fit in/on one. Currently built on F350/3500HD chassis. All the good things about a truck (easy to find parts & service, comfortable to drive) plus you've got your small house right there. I have been a happy Tiger owner since 2006. Sold only from the factory in South Carolina. Used ones are scarce and they usually sell very quickly; demand keeps prices of used ones high. Look for used Tigers on Craigslist or join the Facebook "Tiger Motorhome Owners" group. Once in a while the factory will have a nearly new Tiger on their Inventory page. Pretty much no two Tigers are exactly alike. Options can be chosen or deleted at the factory and many owners add a lot of stuff later. Purchasing example: I bought my Tiger CX new in 2006. Ordered the truck options I wanted (8.1 L gas engine, 4x4, LT trim, 6-disc CD player (hey, it was 2006), etc.) and deleted stuff I did not need or want (TV, microwave, air conditioning, generator, etc.). Note that I had already driven a small 4x4 class C for 15 years, so I knew what I liked. All of the purchase process was carried out by phone, internet, and snail mail. I had the finished Tiger delivered to my home in Southern California, which cost less than having me fly one way to SC and drive the Tiger back home. Times have changed, trucks have changed, factory ownership has changed, but as far as I know the purchase process can still occur this way.

RE: TR: Kings Canyon/Sequoia

Thanks for sharing! It is good to see that you both are still going "out there" and also that there are so many undamaged sequoias left after the fires.

RE: questions about rental RV

Before you do this trip, you might try to get hold of my favorite RV movie ever, "Rolling Family." video trailer https://i.imgur.com/y1QEDlJl.jpg

RE: Fridge/Freezer door opening while driving

Lots of good ideas here. I'll add mine: blue painters tape. BTW, my 1989 Dometic had a good dependable latch. My 2006 Dometic does not.

RE: Reasonably Priced Portable Compressor Fridge

A review of this same frig popped up on one of my favorite YouTube channels this morning. Here is the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9wb6VDbn55s I like this reviewer because his explanations are clear and not too technical. He discloses that he was given the frig to try out, but notes a couple of times that he has nothing to gain or lose if you decide to buy or not buy it. He has only had an ice cooler before. He demonstrates setting up the frig, shows a real bag of groceries going into it, times the cooling, shows how much current it uses (from his vehicle's 12V plug while on the road and from the 12V plug on his Jackery power supply when parked. In the text which goes with the video, there is an Amazon link and a code for a $40 discount which is good until October 26, 2020. My own disclosure: I have owned and used a portable frig (another brand, similar size and functions)for several years to supplement the old and iffy 3-way in my RV. It is a game-changer for camping!

RE: Overland Build Idea

You could just get a Tiger. 4x4 pickup chassis, back of cab cut off, coach mounted onto chassis. Cutting off the cab back makes it a class C with pass-through between cab and coach. Built to order at the factory. New ones are pricey and used ones are scarce. I always say there is no perfect RV, but the 2006 Tiger CX which I bought new is by far the closest thing to a perfect RV for me.

RE: No power to headlights

My first RV was on a 1983 Toyota chassis. When it was about 20 years old, both headlights and all flashers and the horn all quit at once. Wiring diagram showed that the headlights were fused separately. ??? It turned out that a relay inside the steering column was causing the problem. It was still drivable (not legally), so I waited for daylight and drove it 150 miles to home and my regular mechanic.

RE: Class C

Tiger Class C's are built to order on a heavy-duty pickup chassis with 8-foot bed. Your choice of gas or diesel. Chevy, Ford, or RAM. Cab can be regular, extended, or crew. 4WD or 2WD. Add or subtract various features as you wish. https://www.tigervehicles.com/tiger-models/

RE: Using a walker on trails

I suggest getting a rollator with 4 large wheels (7.5" to 8" rather than 6"), hand brakes, a seat and a basket/pouch for carrying stuff (water, hat, etc.). This is what my spouse uses. I agree. I have two, one with large wheels, one with small, one for indoors and one for outdoors. The large is definitely easier to walk with and also quieter.
