RE: Chevrolet exits all ICE production by 2035

Just because they are out of ICE production doesn't mean they won't use them. They have used other peoples engines in the past.

RE: Satellite Finder app for IPhone

Just install several and pick the one you want. By then figure out if you need OS or android.

RE: Newbie boondockers left a mess in Eastern Sierra

Require a 8 hour training class and issue a identification card as proof of attendance. Required for anyone over 10 years of age.. Fund additional staff requirements with a $10 fee for 3 days camping. Enforce laws on books and any funds derived from fines used for above. Encourage clubs such as Good Sam to help clean after the slobs.

I stand corrected.

RE: Champion dual fuel generator, convert to nat gas?

It is my understanding that nothing other than piping in natural gas. The change will have a slight effect on watts produced vs fuel consumption.

RE: Short Term Freezing Weather Tips?

Disconnect and drain hose after filling fresh water tank. Operate off fresh water tank while freezing. Open cabinet doors to allow heat to get to pipes. Run water heater to heat water in tank. Make sure propane tank is full. Run small electric heater to supplement coach heater. Pull slides in if possible to use coach while in. Empty black and grey tanks. Camped as low as 12 degrees Fahrenheit. 26 is not really that cold but you never know , it is expected to be 15 here.

RE: Not a good year to visit Glacier NP

What with all the applications for unemployment it would seem that labor shortages all over the country wouldn't exist.

RE: New satellite dish

Sorry but it just doesn't appear to be a better mouse trap.

RE: New satellite dish

Dish TV has a dish with two receiver connections. It can be mounted on the RV or used as a portable. It is HD. Why would I want to put all the parts together when I can have a dome and two Wally for about $450. His product appears to cost over$1000.

Dish TV while traveling

we currently have Dish TV. We can use Dish Anywhere with our unlimited data cellphone to view Dish programming on our TV in the camper. No additional cost involved. Other than areas where there is no cell signal what is the pros and cons of this method rather than a satellite dish and a Wally? Additional cost of buying the dish and Wally and $5-7 per month.

RE: Shopping for a Jeep Wrangler... maybe?

It is my understanding that there are some 2 wheel drive Jeeps. It is also been said that the 2 wheel drives are not towable 4 down as they don't have a transfer case. We currently own a 2016 Rubicon Hardrock and have owned 4 others in the past. Having said that I have never seen a 2 wheel drive Jeep. Just be aware.

RE: taking your RV on a boat down the Mississipi to New Orleans

There are tons of barges and tow boats in this area that could be used for this purpose. Liability issues and regulations is what brought this business to It's knees. Since we have plenty of car and truck ferries it is not impossible to overcome the so called 6 person limit. By the time the total investment was made few if any wanted to pay the bill. Tow boats have to sTay busy to make money.

RE: Wiring a charge line to battery on utility trailer

Not to high jack this discussion but what should the voltage be on this charging wire?

RE: How to tell when water heater is at max?

The prize goes to Valhalla. Get a killawatt or something to tell you how many watts you are pulling. When it drops about 1800 watts then the filament stopped heating.

RE: Tow Vehicle Liability Insurance

The only claim I have ever had in 60 years of driving was with Progressive and they did it right. No other experience with claims. Price will go up yearly for all companies. You just have to shop around occasionally.

RE: Direct TV revisited

We did the same thing back in mid October. Saved money and got better channels. Getting use to the remote took a little time but even it is better and more capable.

RE: Small Grills

I agree the Weber baby Q can cook about any meal. It also meets your small 1 pound propane bottle requirement. Its all in how you use it. Good luck with whatever you decide.

RE: Fantasizing, I suppose

Nucamp TAB is the smallest I know of with a shower. We tow a 16 foot Airstream with a Toyota Tacoma. It is an excellent package. You can carry a 2200 watt genny which will run your AC on hot days. We have the extended cab and the 5 foot bed. A very comfortable ride with good gas mileage.

RE: Small Grills

I looked at the Davey Crocket but declined when I learned it weighed 68 pounds versus 21 for Blackstone and calls for another additional fuel to carry. Propane is only fuel necessary for small Weber and Blackstone. Cleanup is much simpler with the Blackstone. To each his own.
