RE: genny conundrum

The other thing to consider is fuel use, that 3K will be gulping down fuel. But you can just run one of the 2200 if you did not need full power. Think about getting gas into the 3K too, may want a small electric transfer pump. Oil changes are the other frequent maintenance issue.

RE: Newly Retired

Florida: 3.8% New Daily Cases: 0 Tests per 100k: 335.4 California: 1.5% New Daily Cases: 7450 Tests per 100k: 879.3 Arizona: 10.9% New Daily Cases: 2495 Tests per 100k: 279.9 CDC Statistics Oct 22 Covid cases nationally are way down and going lower. As for laws and regulations, which state is banning gas powered generators? Which state is slapping new regs on Class A RV's. Which state has legalized shop lifting and other crimes? Which state has regulated campgrounds out of existence? The list goes on and on and if you are trying to defend Cali on that basis you are taking a losing position. But you are right the OP was asking about Condo rental not politics so why did you bring it up?

RE: Newly Retired

Florida would not be my choice because of the high rates of covid cases This is political hogwash and you should ignore it. I'm not advocating for you to stay in Florida, it's just the state I know the most about. AZ is a good spot but has a more limited area to stay in because of the weather in the north higher altitude parts of the state. Other possibilities are the Alabama coast, most years the Texas Rio Grande Valley, but the area is inundated by a million or so border jumpers right now. Maybe south New Mexico around Silver City is another.

RE: Newly Retired

Not for Condos, we are full timers and just haven't rented any. As for areas FL is packed with condos, mostly on the coasts. The farther south you go the more expensive they get with the peak down in the Keys. Especially in January which is right in the middle of 'the season' which runs from Thanksgiving to April depending on the weather up north. We have stayed in AZ around Benson last winter but don't know much about condos. For winter I'd guess you'll find them around Tucson and maybe Phoenix. Besides be extremely expensive CA is choked with rules, laws and regs. I'm not sure if most businesses are open. We avoid the place if possible.

RE: Newly Retired

California will be very expensive. FL and AZ less so and they are welcoming to snowbirds with many campgrounds targeteted at these camper. Az parks are mainly south of Phoenix. Fl has parks state wide but below Orlando they get a LOT more expensive especially close to either shore. You may have a difficult time finding spots in January as you will be late to the game. Florida is one of the three preferred domicile states since it has no income tax, TX and SD are the others. I know nothing about renting RV's.

Streets and Trips and the Microsoft software are very out of date, 2015, and it has other major problems like being very slow, so slow that you are well past a turn when it orders you to do the turn. We resisted for years adopting a stand alone nav unit but finally gave in and are happy with the results.

RE: Westinghouse generator 4500

How many DB noise level? Also they are preying on the Westinghouse name, that company has been sold and resold and I have no idea who owns the name now. Some Chinese company most likely.

RE: Ever hear of this camping company? Harvest Host

LOL we had an irritating experience with a HH site in Tillamook OR, found it on line, no mention of HH at a Cheese Factory, arrived found they had a 2 or so acre field marked off for RV overnight, dry camping. Half set up went into the office to check in was informed they were now HH and to join up or hit the road...heh. More polite tho I assume, the wife talked to them. Hit the road found a good spot 4 miles away that the airport, level paved sites, $15. BTW this is NOT the well known Tillamook Cheese company. Of course the cheese makers had no obligation to us so I can't complain about it. They can't be held to account to out of date web data. My real complaints with HH, is that: 1) The expect you to spend $20-30 at each site plus paying for the HH membership. So $30 to dry camp IF: 2) You cannot make reservations so You can arrive and not get in. 3) For us personally we do not partake of alcohol or golf so a large portion of the places do not apply to us anyway.

RVTW (RV trip wizard) will route you around them and show them on the map but not warn you audibly. I don't know of one that will sound an alarm.

RE: Aftermarket Nav

Get a Garman RV890 we've been using it for maybe 16000 miles and it has been mostly excellent. It has a learning curve since it has so many functions.

RE: black tank digester

We tried some high tech stuff from Amazon. $30 a quart. Used it up and shazam! Saw no difference. Thought about septic tank pellets. But the best is plenty of water and and occasional flush by sticking the hose with a high pressure lawn nozzle down the toilet for five minutes. We have a tank flusher and use that sometimes, not sure how much good it does. At the dump station here at Gros Ventre the women ahead of use at the dump station was trying to hold the flush hose at the dump station up to the flush connection on her tank. Spraying water everywhere. Turns out that hubby, who most likely does the deed normally, had to fly off for a time leaving her behind.

RE: Tampa RV Show

Do they have travel trailers at the Tampa show? They have everything from popups to Newells and everything in between. Ditto on that and many show specials if you are ready to make the jump right then. If so do your reaserch first. The show does last three days so you could look on day one and do internet searches that night on what you liked at the show that night. I think there may be camping in the parking lot but I'm not sure.

RE: Tampa RV Show

We have been to the Tampa show multiple times, maybe last year. Don't recall for sure, hopefully will be in Quartzite this year. No big truck display tho, but Ford had a RV chassis tent/display IIRC.

RE: simple laptop solution for RV travel

Once you get into laptops you also become vulnerable to viruses. Not any more true than a desktop, they use processors from the same famly after all. Just use an antivirus and practice safe computing. Do not open unexpected emails, don't click on unknown links,stay off dangerous sites. Neither your bank nor Microsoft will not send you emails asking for private data. And if it seems to be too good to be true, it almost always is.

RE: simple laptop solution for RV travel

There are so many models of any brand you have to be seriously involved with the industry to make any sense of it. My tactic is to go to Amazon (New Egg is another possibility), select a few brands. I generally look at ASUS and ACER just because they have worked for me. Specify your minimum processor, memory, screen size, and disk type and size. Then I look to see what they have. New Egg is a bit harder to navigate if you aren't familiar with the site. Personally I specify a max price and am not interested in the latest bleeding edge machines. Especially not for a notebook. And I buy a warranty for notebooks since they are less reliable than desktops. I build my own desktops. Last time I got a good deal on a ruggedized milspec notebook a couple of generations back. Been working fine the last two years and I have a 24 in ips monitor hooked up to it.

RE: Does this file mean ?

You can usually google mystery system files and find out what they are, but not in this case. If you are worried just change the file type and reboot. gut14.temp for example. If there are no problems, delete it. But as noted tmp files are designed to be deleted.

RE: Will Fed shutdown bar access to Nat Forests? Nat Parks?

That's true BLM land would be just about impossible to close with exceptions of their semi developed camps.
