RE: campground to avoid

The grumpy foul mouthed person at check in does not stay with us. Everyone has their issues. As long as they don't bother us during the stay, fine, chock it up to experience & maybe don't stop there again.

RE: New RV TV show 11/17/19

Watched it. 15 minute programming. 15 minutes of commercials. Watch again? Don't know. There certainly will not be any regrets if I miss it.

RE: Microwaves on inverters.

We have a 1500 continuous pure sine wave inverter. Standard setup procedure when dry camping is turn the microwave, water heater, fridge & charger breakers off. Eliminates all chances of expensive things happening.

RE: water water everywhere but not a drop to drink!

How do the astronauts up in the ISS make out? No shore power or water up there

RE: Loud Water Pump

One persons really loud is normal to another. Check the pump mounting. A bit of foam backed carpeting might reduce it. Check those pipes too. We use our pump 100% of the time. Fill the tank through a water softener then use the pump. It makes different sounds for different reasons. Kinda letting me know how it & my water system is feeling.

RE: Trickle Charging Chassis battery

If the batteries are all together it would be a simple matter to connect the starting battery in parallel with the house bank & give it a trickle charge that way. There are always ghost draws of power however small. The only way to make the vehicle completely dead is to physically disconnect the battery. It will still discharge. About 10% per month for a wet cell. 5% per month if you have AGMs. AGMs are more forgiving. My 5er was put away last week. It has a single 4D AGM. Battery was disconnected & won't see any attention till next April. My last AGM gave me 9 years service storing this way.

RE: do you do this

The first couple years I lifted it & supported it by the frame. Don't know why. Lots of vehicles spend lots of time in storage & always on their wheels. No harm. I make sure that tires are at proper pressure. That is it.

RE: New RV TV show 11/17/19

8AM EST!!! OK, not a big deal. That is 9AM for me. Will see if I can remember.

RE: A Question Are you limited to life on pavement

I am not big on hiking, never been hunting, not a big fishing fan, never played golf, avoid any CG with "resort" in the name, avoid FHU campsites, don't need water at site either, know how to get by with 20amp in my 50amp trailer, don't avoid dry camping, like COE & SPs over private CGs, don't have satellite TV, don't panic if out of cellphone service area, do virtually all repairs myself. What does that make me? I figure somewhat on the rustic side of the average RVer. You won't come across me way out in the wilderness somewhere but you won't find me glamping in some resort where everyone has their noses stuck up in the clouds either.

RE: New RV TV show 11/17/19

Worth a look. It appears to have what I would consider quite a few Newbs involved. People who have not have had the gloss of the lifestlye worn off yet by things like a couple of black tank valve replacements done themselves or had a couple of mid desert tire blowouts. It takes time & miles for all the good & the bad to accumulate.

RE: Inverter use.

A 400w inverter is nothing really. Can't imagine what happens to it when she stomps on the sewing machine pedal & starts up while you have the TV & whatever else is on. Get yourself a minimum 1000w PURE sine wave inverter & do as suggested, connect to breaker panel & make sure things like converter, fridge, water heater & microwave are OFF.

RE: I think they’re doing it wrong

Hey, the truck is a 4X4. No problem.

RE: Landing gear motor.

Hooking up a 2nd motor could probably be performed. How would you synchronize their speed so the landing gears operate at the same speed? I have no idea where the zerk comments come from! It is a very simple matter to hold the rocker switches on for both sides. Operate each till touching ground then both. Easy. Can't imagine not having a motor for each leg.

RE: Propane Tank Gauge,recomendations please

Bought one of those tape guage thinghys. Waste of money. Since then time & experience has taught me the old fashioned way. How long have we been using it, the knock on the side with the knuckles & a shake without taking it out. The DW uses the colour of the flame as a guide plus the fridge senses low propane. You know that you are out when things stop working.

RE: Signing a power of attorney for bank when selling your RV

I would not feel comfortable with that arrangement either. We did a direct transaction with the seller. We went into the sellers bank together. Sat down with the banker. Banker opened an escrow acct. My bankers check went in. I got title. Bank took out balance owed on trailer & transferred the rest to the seller. Escrow account closed. Everyone happy.

RE: Remembrance Day

Sad that the day has become little more than a theme to base retail sales on. It is a day of business as usual for most. Across Britain & the Commonwealth it is a day of respect & remembrance. Even if you are not at a service at a cenotaph in your town at eleven minutes past the eleventh hour on the eleventh of November you stop for a few moments to remember when the guns fell silent at that time in 1918 & give thanks & respect to those who gave their all.

2020 planning

Our 5er & truck have not been in storage 4 days yet & the loose plans have started for 2020 already. Sometimes we find ourselves doing a loose theme to a trip. This year it was around the Great Lakes. A few years ago we sort of followed the Erie Canal then into Canada for the Trent Severn Waterway & 1000 islands. For 2020, staying east of the Mississippi but trying to link scenic routes & byways. The idea was inspired by the route we took this fall from Savanah, GA. up to Richmond VA. Most would take I 95 but we did it east of I95 barely using the interstate at all & mostly on 2 lane roads. A very pleasant if longer drive.

RE: Water Usage

For dry camping in comfort freshwater capacity & battery capacity is king. Unfortunately RV builders seem to think that everyone camps in FHU CGs these days. Residential fridges are common. Room for batteries is extremely limited. Grey water tankage is inadequate. Fresh water tankage is way inadequate. Many large class A MOHOs have adequate tankage & house battery capacity but you seldom see these units in dry camping areas. They are too big for most of these CGs & maybe the owners want all of the comforts of home. 5ers typically have loads of unused space under their floors & in their basements for larger tanks & more battery space but this space is seldom used or underused. Some of us actually like to dry camp in comfort. A TC or TT simply cannot provide the tankage needed to do so.

RE: I-84 from Connecticut to New York. Issues?

People worry about roads in the North. Try I84 through PA, NY & CT!!!. The less you have to drive on it the better. Unfortunately when you need to get from one place to another sometimes it is unavoidable. No complaints on traffic volume. The POTHOLES!

RE: Electric Pickup?

Have to smile when I see all the comments trying to justify the ownership of a pickup outside of its use for RV propulsion. Try this one out. I live in a place where car ownership is restricted to ONE car per HOUSEHOLD. No personal trucks. Further, car size is restricted what you call sub compact cars. Mine is a 2004 Toyota Yaris. About the size of a Suzuki Swift. Can't fit a sheet of plywood in it but it has carried everything else needed for home projects up to multiple boards 10' or longer shoved in the back & wedged on the dashboard. Bags of cement, concrete block, boxes of tile are all easy stuff for it. For anything big I have friends in construction who have trucks or there are commercial truckers available by the hour.
