RE: Running generator all night - Cpap

I remember somewhere in the dim past seeing something exempting necessary medical devices from the generator time rules. Can't find this info right now. I'm not intending to whine here, but just display the situation of a medical device user. I've been a CPAP user since 2013. Without the CPAP, I can get almost no sleep. My RV does not have a generator or solar. (Yes, it could have those, but I had it without them long before I got the CPAP.) I have spent quite a bit to be able to run the CPAP in the RV. My insurer pays the full cost of CPAP equipment for home, but would not pay for the 12V cord made by the CPAP manufacturer or for the small lithium power packs which I sometimes use when running low on 12V coach battery power. Their latest trick was to issue me a new CPAP machine for home, which requires more power than my current RV system or portable packs can reasonably supply. My old CPAP still works, so I use it in the RV but now have to pay out of pocket for any supplies or repairs for it. Does your neighbor have the right to run his generator all night for CPAP? Possibly, maybe even probably. I'm not sure if this issue might come under rules on access for persons with disabilities. A CPAP is a necessary medical device. It's not like he was running the generator to play computer games and watch movies. That said, I think that we medical device users need to do our best to be considerate neighbors in camp. Night noise is not considerate. Will campgrounds come up with quiet and not so quiet area divisions? Or electrical hookups for medical device users? Time will tell.

RE: Trip Report: Capitol Reef/Bryce/Zion

Your trip reports are always fantastic and I've missed them. It's good to see you back on the road again.

RE: Is There a 24’ Version of These RVs available?

Wow! Thank you for the info on the tiger and especially the links. I had thought they seemed overpriced until I looked at the options list. They really aren’t adding much to the cost and seem like a fair company. You can order the standard list of features or add some or (at least I did in 2006; different owners now) delete some. I deleted microwave, air conditioning, generator, and TV. Spent my money instead on 4WD, 8.1L engine, and Allison transmission, all of which were options at the time. No regrets on any of these choices. However, newbies beware. I had owned a similar 4WD RV for 15 years before buying the Tiger, so I knew what I used and what was a waste of space for me. Your needs/wishes will undoubtedly differ from mine.

RE: Is There a 24’ Version of These RVs available?

I am the original and current owner a 2006 Tiger, have driven it for 93K miles so far. I am not full-time and it is not my daily driver. See signature for its description. This is my second 4x4 chassis mount RV. Fabulous vehicle for the dirt back roads of the Western US, which I explore whenever possible. I don't deliberately seek out snow, but some Tiger owners do and you can ask them about snow travel. I am elderly and disabled now (back troubles and very limited walking), but I can still handle the Tiger and all tasks involved in travel with it. It is easy even for me to get from living area to driver's seat via the pass through; I am not sure whether going the other direction (uphill from cab into living area) is possible for me, but a more agile person could do it. A Tiger with an extended cab can be about 24 feet long; my regular cab model (like La Tortuga in your original post photo) is just under 20 feet. Tigers are currently built on any truck chassis which meets current Tiger factory standards. Sprinter is not one of these. Ram has come and gone over the years; today it is gone. See Specs & Pricing on the webpage for chassis info. Tigers are wonderful, but their current website is not. You have to dig down with few clues along the way to get to Specs and Pricing. https://www.tigervehicles.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/07/Tiger-Adventure-Vehicles-Flyer-Apr-2020-F.pdf Some info is available on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCsKf-GQpHYjQdjKy3H1vCSQ. I have enjoyed seeing the photos of the newest Tigers. You don't see new ones around because #1: They are built only on order and #2: They are sold new only from the factory. Once in a while they have one whose deal apparently fell through or which they took as a trade-in, and you'll see those under the Inventory tab on the website. Also, not many Tigers exist. In about 30 years they have produced just over 1300 Tigers. The only model currently in production is the Bengal. My personal experience and that of many other Tiger folks with contacting the factory is that by phone is best. Currently, they seem to ignore any messages sent from the website form. There is a Tiger Motorhome Owners group on Facebook. A large percentage of the members are shoppers, not owners. Most participants are helpful and friendly and love their Tigers. As with any group, there are also some whiners. This group is a good source of all sorts of Tiger info and sometimes used Tigers are advertised for sale. There is another Tiger group on Tapatalk; I find it difficult or annnoying to use and don't go there much any more. There is a trend in truck campers mounted on flatbed chassis, but most of those have no pass-through. One possibility you might want to investigate is Phoenix Custom Campers I hope that this info helps you with your search.

RE: Starting Over - Heart Attack

The Howes have seen the world with their Tiger. They ship it wherever they want to go. http://www.travelin-tortuga.com/Travelin-Tortuga/index.html

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.

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.
