RE: The GEO Method and Space Heaters - Thoughts?

For heat, my favorite method these days on a trip like that would be to stay at a place with electrical hookups and use a small portable electric heater. Or use a propane heater and turn it off when going to bed. At the temperatures you describe, you and your RV plumbing won't freeze. Good long undies and lots of blankets and sometimes even a knit hat take care of night heat needs safely. I never run either propane or electric heaters while I am asleep. Have a great trip!

RE: Where to get three nights of peaceful RV time?

From my personal bucket list, meaning I want to go but have not done so yet... Berryessa Snow Mountain National Monument This is north of you. Probably pretty primitive. https://www.blm.gov/programs/national-conservation-lands/california/berryessa-snow-mountain-national-monument From my been-there-liked-it list: San Luis Reservoir State Recreation Area South of you near Los Banos. A variety of camping areas, ranging from primitive first-come-first-served (Medeiros, where I always stay) to full hookups with lake views. https://www.parks.ca.gov/?page_id=30712

RE: Trip report: Sequoia after the fires

Thanks for the cool and refreshing trip report! It is good that you and Felice and the Sequoias all appear to be doing well.

RE: Everybody must get stoned, rock on...

This job was worth all of the sweat and pain it caused you. Broken ankles are to be avoided at all costs. When I broke mine a few years ago at age 70, I was unable to drive for 7 1/2 months. So much Tiger travel time lost.....

RE: Looking at class c questions on maintenance

My Tiger Class C, 20 feet long, on a stock 2500 HD 4x4 chassis, goes to the Chevy dealer work truck department for all of its basic fluids, changes, belts, etc. This dealer has all the parts, offers a shuttle service, and has done a great job for the 16 years I've had this truck. The mechanics love it; they say they've never seen anything so cool on a Chevy chassis.

RE: Message for Tiger4X4RV.....

You are now on my buddy list and I will send you what I have, which is the brochure on the Six Pac and some photos taken on my visit to the factory in 2006. As to pros/cons, for public viewing: Biggest con is of course that Six Pac is no longer manufactured and has not been for quite a while. They were once very popular around here. The factory was local and they appeared to produce a great basic camper. So why did I not choose this wonderful camper? The Six Pac or any truck camper did not fit my wish list. There is no perfect RV, but having the ability to go from living quarters to truck cab without going outside was VERY high on my list. I had had that feature on my pre-Tiger RV (a small Class C, very much like a Tiger), which I had adventured in for 15 years, and I was not wanting to do without it. Might I have bought the Six Pac if it was the best fit for my list? Yes. Great basic camper, well built, not loaded with fancy stuff I didn't need or want, decent price. Should you buy the 2005 Six Pac? Consider the following: Look VERY carefully at any damage accumulated over the years, especially looking for signs of moisture damage. This problem is almost universal on older units of all types, not just Six Pac and not just truck campers. Rain seems to want to live inside with you and condensation doesn't want to go away. Look at your own personal resources. Can you repair problems or afford or even find someone else to repair them? Does this camper fit into the bed of your truck? I remember reading that truck bed widths have shrunk over the years and that sometimes older campers do not fit into new trucks. Best of luck in your camper search!

RE: My campsite map now up to 740 sites

Thank you for all you do to provide this great info. I have found some great sites from your lists over the years.

RE: Succor creek Oregon

Ten years ago I visited the area and stayed for a couple of nights. The area is beautiful, remote, and primitive. Boondocked one night on a hilltop which required 4WD and one night at the Leslie Gulch primitive BLM camp. I remember a scary drive along a one-lane shelf road heading north toward Succor Creek. Here is info from the website for Succor Creek State Natural Area: " Succor Creek State Natural Area lies in a deep, rocky canyon and is a remote haven for rock hounds and wildlife watchers. Limited souvenir collecting by rock hounds is permitted in the park. A rough 15 mile dirt road leads from Oregon 201 to the park, which has primitive camping and day-use areas along both side of the creek. No water is available. The Succor Creek Bridge is open to vehicles for access to the campsites on the east side of the creek (right/south of the bridge). The road to the left/north of the bridge is not safe for vehicular travel." Photos in a Campendium review show a 32 Class C at Succor Creek campground. Those folks probably brought their own water and electricity. There is an RV park with hookups in Jordan Valley. I know nothing about it, but you could call them for info. Stay there and explore with your tow vehicle? https://sunnyridgerv.com/ Enjoy your trip!

RE: Pinnacles National Park, California question

Pulling a 35 ft fiver btw I figured your rig was bigger than mine, but 35 ft? Hmmm. Did the park say that would fit in the site you reserved? I think driving there midweek would be fine, but I remember that road having a LOT of traffic on a weekend. Anyway, Have fun and be safe.

RE: Pinnacles National Park, California question

You can follow the Google Maps suggestion, leaving 101 at King City. Get gas there. However, I am a backroads person. I like to leave 101 at San Miguel (gas there), follow Indian Valley Road, go left when that changes to Peach Tree Road, jog bit left at 198, then right on Peach Tree again, now also called Hwy 25, follow that through Bitterwater. At some point 25 changes its name to Airline Hwy. Eventually, you'll get to a left turn onto 146, which takes you to the NP entrance station. Signage is good along this route. 2-lane paved road. I've driven it several times over the years (last time about 3 years ago) and rarely seen another vehicle midweek. Take a good map, like maybe a regional AAA map or a roads atlas. Enjoy!

RE: Cargo trailer bathroom plan

Thetford Porta-Potti. I used one for 15 years, 1991-2006. They cost about $100 back then, undoubtedly more now. The PP sat in the shower stall, was easily removed to improve showering. Black tank was about 5 gallons. It flushed from its own small fresh water tank. No bad smells. You could get a second black tank and swap out tanks to extend your time between dumps. It is totally a myth that you can dump these or dump built-in cassettes anywhere you want. Find a safe and legal dump station.

RE: Cabover on an SUV

Can that possibly be legal? I sure would not want to be driving behind it on a windy day.

RE: Malheur/Burns Oregon in May to see the birds

Take a look at the "seasons of wildlife" section of Malheur NWR's web site before you lock in your travel dates. Will the kind of birds you want to see be there at the time you want? https://www.fws.gov/refuge/Malheur/seasons_of_wildlife/ There is some RV parking on the refuge at the field station. I have not stayed there. https://malheurfieldstation.org/lodging I drove half of the auto tour and then went south, camped at the BLM Page Springs camp, drove the Steens Mountain loop (all day drive), and camped another night at Page Springs. July, 2019. Fabulous trip, but I don't remember many birds. I was looking for flowers and spectacular scenery and definitely got what I wanted.

RE: Windsurfers - what's your configuration? Best class c?

Maybe take a look at the Coachmen Cross Trail. Fairly new model, so may not be available used. Big garage under the bed, maybe large enough for a windsurfer. https://coachmenrv.com/class-c-motorhomes/cross-trail Or look at various vans with rear bath and twin beds, which allows a long item like a windsurfer or kayak to slide in through the rear doors and into the space between the beds.

RE: Simplest battery monitor and shunt? Advice for non-expert

I have used an Innova 3721 for 9 years now. No installation, no shunt. When you want to know your battery voltage, just plug it into a 12V socket and wait a few minutes for the reading to stabilize. I suppose you could leave it plugged in all the time, but I don't. It can move to any vehicle or camper or device with a live 12V socket. About $20. I write the readings, one for day start and one for day end, into my daily travel logbook. https://www.amazon.com/INNOVA-3721-Battery-Charging-Monitor/dp/B000EVWDU0
