RE: Starlink mobile satellite internet is coming this year

And how will that work in campgrounds/boondocking with heavy tree cover? The reports I've seen say that it needs a much wider view of the sky than traditional sat service. But I have not been closely following since I taking the long term wait and see position.

RE: Heat duct oder

attempt to try and pull hometowns You lost me with that one. We've never seen that problem. You need to look inside one way or another which is what I assume you meant. Could be a dead critter too.

RE: Solar Panel Height

Yeah mine are maybe 1 1/2 inches. They are supposed to work better when off their above the roof for cooling. "I did read that 3" is minimum with 4" to 6" preferred but not sure if they were referencing RV's or solar panels in general." But on the other hand people are sticking those flexible panels right on their roofs. Zero spacing.

RE: Tombstone Rv and Campground

I first visited in 1958. I was 17 and it was boring as he!!. Been back a couple of times since but at least 20nyears ago Seems like we mostly went to old Tucson for the fake gun fights. And they had giant desert Tortoises at the Desert Museum which they do not now.

RE: Tombstone Rv and Campground

My question is this: what's in Tombstone that's worth a multi-day stay? We've been there a number of times over the years and it's just a tourist trap town. My first visits were back in the 1950's when I was in first grade and lived in Tucson. We were there last week for a couple of hours. We did 9 days in Benson and the heat is setting in.

RE: Tombstone Rv and Campground

We were just up the road in Benson at San Pedro Resort, it's $140/week there and it is an excellent camp, 2 swimming pools all sorts of other stuff and a lot of activities. About 30 minutes to Tombstone.

RE: So different now

Some city county parks are great, Mason Texas has a good one and Jetty Park at Cape Canaveral is fantastic, right on the beach. We've stayed at others and have seen one bad one, Atlantic NE, avoid at all costs...heh.

RE: 5050 miles in 9 Travel Days

My record, though not towing a 5th wheel was about 1450 miles ( Baton Rouge to Cheyenne, Wy. ) in 24 hours. But, I was inspired, much younger and in an automobile! Ours was around 1100 miles but in maybe 30 hours towing a popup, west of Dallas to North Florida

RE: So different now

One word. "Reservations!" Planning ahead relieves stress and frustration. We have not found that not to be the case, 2500 miles so far since mid-March and got turned down once when calling ahead an hour or so to get a spot. And that was because of the snowbird exodus from FL. We mix boondocking with private/public camps. We are in southern AZ right now headed for Flagstaff for some boondocking with an overnight stop at an AZ state park, which had plenty of empty spots.

RE: 5050 miles in 9 Travel Days

A while back, there was a topic about stopping rv’ing @70 years of age. At closing in on 70, I don’t think it’s time to stop....but, a marathon trip like in the title .....isn’t as easy as it once was. Ah Phooey, I'm 72 and just getting started. We did a trail yesterday with a 800 ft climb in a mile. Nothing to brag about but we are just getting our hiking legs back, There is a YT channel on old mine exploration and one of the two guys doing it is 85. And he is climbing up and down 300 foot shafts. Some folks do have debilitating health problems, but so do some 25 year olds. God has seen fit to let us be active. How do you even drive 5000 miles in the US without going up into Canada? The most we every did was 1900 miles in 4 1/2 days. North Florida to Yosemite. Had reservations to keep.

RE: Battery price question...

6V is $89.88 at Sam's Club and they are true deep cycle and may last longer. Ditto on that And let me mention that Battleborn Lithium Battery co did a test of 12V, 6V and Lithium batteries and found that the 6V was the most cost effective tho they do their best to hide that fact in the video

RE: Cortez, CO RV parks?

I think sundance may be the place we stayed for a week a few years ago. Across the highway from the KOA. The owner was very helpful but wanted cash. However she told us to get some from the Walmart down the road and pay her when we could. It's a good central location for the Trail of the Ancients, Mesa Verde, Hovenweep and lots of other places around that area. Remember to make tour reservations in Mesa Verde well ahead of time or you will be out of luck.

RE: Solidifying shower floor??

Clicky Those ideas seem non applicable to a RV. The mortar idea is out, it needs a solid base itself. Shims do not apply and filling the space with foam would mean never being able to get at the piping again. The videos here specifically for RV's may have an answer. I have the same issue myself: RV Shower floor fixes

Indian Bread Rocks BLM

Near Bowie AZ https://i.imgur.com/46xe9JEl.jpg Great site about 15 minutes off I10. There are a lot of YT videos about this site. It's a great desert camp, the 'bread rock' is worth a climb up to it. From the back side it's a walk up. There are metates or as they are now calling them bedrock mortars. And some ruin walls that I assume are indian origin. It's a site that Geronimo, Cochise and Victorio may have used. It is also chose to Ft Bowie and Chiricahua NM. Turn right when getting to the paved road on leaving the camp for the shortcut, 10 miles of fair dirt road on the way. https://i.imgur.com/qYEZuEwl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/iurzanRl.jpg

RE: Are 16" tires still common? South america.. And disk brakes

LT tires are simply not an option. Why not? And are those Hercules ST or LT? And the reason GY lost that suit was because they lied about the Marathons. Which does not make me trust them. Unless you are claiming they had a morality transplant when they came out with their endurance tires.
