RE: Registration Rant

$381 + $50 smog on a 2001 F350 SRW to register this year :M oh but I don’t have to pay to register my TC, it’s like going to Oregon and paying $150 for an oil change and but not having to pay sales tax! https://i.imgur.com/55QjdYNl.jpg The time is coming soon when I am so outta California. What are you guys seeing for registration in other states for a Similar vehicle? Illinois here I feel your pain. look at the bright side, some sarcastic official pointed out your $1.00 license fee is tax deductible. Great catch I was wondering when someone was going to bring that up!! Kick a man while he’s down. Yeah California has some of the highest state income tax in the country, + property, taxes, sales tax,= Sunshine Tax. The registration fee is just the nail in the coffin to keep not only keep my current vehicle (why would I buy a new F350 and pay $1200 a year in registration) but to finally look elsewhere to move the heck out this state.

RE: Dual pane windows....

If you are going to be winter camping when the temperature is less than 20F and if you don't like living in a dark cave, double pane windows keep in more heat and allow natural light to come inside. Our 2001 TC has double pane windows, as well as large double pane skylights and double pane vent covers. No seal failures yet in any of them. When the temperatures are lower still, reflectix layers covering the windows to keep more heat in. The reflectix on the table window, skylights and vents are removed when we aren't sleeping. For temperatures dropping below 0F at night, we made the table window triple pane ala Photomike's post. Can sit comfortably next to the window and watch the night sky. Cuts down on wind blowing through the window track drains and crevices when there is a blizzard outside (although they can be taped shut from the outside). Reflectix added when we go to bed. While there are lots of holes in a TC, most people will find and plug/seal them over time. Thermal pane windows are part of that consideration, or put another way, will the batteries last the night, how many days before the propane runs out and is it warm enough inside the TC to be comfortable and run full utilities for the length of stay you are planning. Speaking of holes, when manufacturers fit windows into a camper, they are not a close tolerance fit around the edges. While double panes won't have condensation on the windows, the aluminum window frame will still have condensation / ice, despite having a "thermal break in the window frame. Fix by removing the inside trim and sealing up the gaps between the sides of the window and frame opening with minimally expanding foam. Having a vapor barrier around the windows reduces the condensation that results in the window rotting out mentioned above. You can use the clear heat shrink window film on the inside to make disposable storm windows for windows you want to see out of. For windows you don't look out a removable tape or Dap Peel 'N Stick caulking can seal the window as well. Have you looked behind the trim on your vents recently? Check out the various winter mods threads for the usual suspects (AC, cord box, propane box, range vent and others). Seriously, just get the double pane windows if you are camping 4 seasons. Thanks so much for this post!!! Never thought to remove the inside trim around the windows ;) https://i.imgur.com/0bFXzEIl.jpg Thinking this should do the trick, now gotta do 4 more https://i.imgur.com/oLmA95fl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/oLmA95fl.jpg

Anza Borrego to the Sequoia’s for Thanksgiving Break

As our kids are getting older we are able to Venture a lot farther from the campsite so We decided to head out to Anza Borrego and hike to the Goat canyon trestle which is the Longest and Tallest curved wooden trestle in the world. It’s a pretty rigorous hike having to do a lot of boulder scrambling but well worth it. We Headed out to Blair Valley for a night. https://i.imgur.com/ExMpHfSl.jpg Blair Valley views https://i.imgur.com/DlZTBm6l.jpg Looking north toward shelter valley https://i.imgur.com/gpiWsWPl.jpg Headed toward Mortero Palms https://i.imgur.com/oqxARnml.jpg Water Station https://i.imgur.com/hWO7jTcl.jpg Phone Booth https://i.imgur.com/S9umFUEl.jpg Nice little camp spot https://i.imgur.com/mkJ9U60l.jpg Brett scrambling amongst the boulders https://i.imgur.com/8Ulx5IHl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/iMMC8ipl.jpg Nice pool of water https://i.imgur.com/mWZm0Zkl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/voMwfLAl.jpg Mortero Palms to Goat Canyon Trestle #2 https://i.imgur.com/CnKAzjdl.jpg The Palms https://i.imgur.com/XzhUKPil.jpg https://i.imgur.com/8qm1Zejl.jpg Views from the top https://i.imgur.com/d0IBXLol.jpg https://i.imgur.com/RxhNzJVl.jpg Entering the rugged Goat Canyon https://i.imgur.com/nH7k5t9l.jpg https://i.imgur.com/S2CEymYl.jpg Trestle coming into view https://i.imgur.com/YoBGL1zl.jpg A bit sketchy in sections https://i.imgur.com/pehuP6Rl.jpg Tallest and Longest curved wooden trestle in the world https://i.imgur.com/ypO7FPTl.jpg Old collapsed tunnel before they built the trestle https://i.imgur.com/UnrtSAAl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/G9vpiLWl.jpg Eating lunch where the builders also ate lunch long ago https://i.imgur.com/MB6gEQUl.jpg Pretty amazing curve https://i.imgur.com/GupjApkl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/wZaBf83l.jpg https://i.imgur.com/KvvBPEGl.jpg Checking out one of the tunnels https://i.imgur.com/EkgVmJal.jpg Quite a bit to work to do to get the railroad back up and running https://i.imgur.com/oBqn1LHl.jpg Heading back to camp https://i.imgur.com/DZ1D9oJl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/DvWO7ysl.jpg Got back just in time https://i.imgur.com/ihjhY0al.jpg https://i.imgur.com/QuFLVOll.jpg We then had reservations for upper pines Over Thanksgiving hoping for snow. As we got to the south entrance the ranger informed us they shut down the campground due to the prediction of too much snow!!! They had evacuated the campground and the tent cabins. We then turned around headed back to Fresno and Then East into Sequoia National Park. Happy they didn’t shut it down :). Settled in before the storm hit https://i.imgur.com/EYYDhsIl.jpg The next morning https://i.imgur.com/NoWQmhsl.jpg And continued to snow for the next 3 days :) https://i.imgur.com/owSQ8Bml.jpg https://i.imgur.com/HjvGOuVl.jpg We got our flashlights and hiked to the Lodge/restaurant for a Yummy Thanskgiving Dinner https://i.imgur.com/l2Wc2Rdl.jpg The Restaurant https://i.imgur.com/FW8Ziw3l.jpg Had to educate my son what this is/was https://i.imgur.com/LJjhGgLl.jpg Headed back home https://i.imgur.com/3rDHmiZl.jpg It took awhile to get my truck started sitting in freezing temps for 3 days but we had a blast hanging out, snow showing and sledding around. https://i.imgur.com/fNn2Wy9l.jpg The much needed snow shovel saved us after about 4’ of snow in 3 days!! https://i.imgur.com/07sYd2tl.jpg hope you enjoyed the report https://i.imgur.com/EvBbiaCl.jpg

RE: Dust proofing

I put one of these on https://i.imgur.com/JW3J1yul.jpg Mainly to protect our pwcs from rocks flying up and getting totally dusted out https://i.imgur.com/6C4mXQLl.jpg I have noticed less dust collecting on the back of the camper but I still have to broom off the bumper.
