RE: East Side of Sierra options

Stay off the road to Leavitt Lake, unless you bring your own tow truck. Rocks the size of doghouses. Come on, Dan --- not that bad. Actually, not bad at all. But not for a 35 fit class A - sorry,

RE: East Side of Sierra options

How adventuresome are you? Leavitt Lake, elevation 9786 feet, off the Sonora Pass highway. http://www.ctwillis.com/CamperTrips/Ca%20Mountains/photos/0922150902-01.jpg width=640 http://www.ctwillis.com/CamperTrips/Ca%20Mountains/photos/0921151444-00.jpg width=640 Beautify spot, if you can take the road, and the wind, and the elevation. Lots more info online

RE: Bathroom access on the road

RE: Trip Report: Capitol Reef/Bryce/Zion

As usual, great descriptions and photography of a wonderful part of the country. I'm surprised you don't have the beautiful star-filled skies in SoCal. Must have changed some since I was last there in 1852. Here's your next rough road -- 'Bobby's Hole' access to the Needles District, Canyonlands. http://www.ctwillis.com/CamperTrips/Needles%202018/photos/DSCN0217a.JPG width=640 http://www.ctwillis.com/CamperTrips/Needles%202018/photos/DSCN0218a.jpg width=640 (that part was actually pretty easy)

Great looking trip. Lots of fun and a very smart move on your part.

RE: Revisiting pop-up campers

About what year would you say that gas engines “caught up?” Try reading carefully. I did not say that gas caught up with diesels. I said BOTH have improved significantly in the last 10 years. To simplify for the reading impaired: there are very VERY few instances that 1000+ ft-lbs are needed in a light duty truck - and NONE for hauling a TC. Alright know-it-alls, start finding exceptions.

RE: Revisiting pop-up campers

Another opinion re: gas vs diesel. If I were buying new now, it would almost certainly be gas. Both engine types have improved greatly in the last 10 years. In 2006, there was more difference between them. Diesel: spend more $ and get the power and torque so that one never has to even consider not having enough. And hold its value much better. Gas: significantly cheaper - and you get what you pay for. In this one persons considered opinion, the 2006-2007 Duramax LBZ diesel + Allison 1000 transmission was The Best Power Train that had ever been available in a light duty truck. Worth the money to me, and it provided 13 years of trouble free service over some of the roughest terrain imaginable. (also worked well for the world famous Grand Whazoo) That truck was also a jack rabbit. If one were so inclined to stand hard on the brake, spool up the turbo charger and pressurize the transmission, then drop the brake, the result was over 100 feet of twin strips of rubber (and some neck pain for the un-prepared).

RE: Revisiting pop-up campers

Wet bath with shower does not work well in a pop up. Wet bath with shower worked just fine in my Outfitter Apex8.

RE: Quieter alternatives for propane furnace in extreme cold

Platinum cat is definitely my choice.

RE: Cab over Camper shell?

Fourwheel campers sell shell versions of their popup campers for exactly your purpose. No exactly cheap though.

RE: Trip report: Boondocking in Mojave Desert -- blog post

Careful there, you're about to exceed your fun quotient for the year.

RE: Good greif.....

A fine bit of engineering in the hands of a skilled operator. Wonder what they think the electric jacks are for -- wtf.

RE: TR: Kings Canyon/Sequoia

Wonderful pictures as usual, Dan. You two sure get around - even not that far from your home.

RE: Dometic Compressor Fridge Issue

Interesting in that I had exactly the opposite problem: it would turn of with the refrigerator good and cold but the freezer wasn't. Solved with foam insulation between the sections. Don't remember that mine had a fan -- just convection. But I guess it could be that a circulating fan has failed. Yes, the thermostat is (or was) in the refrigerator section, at the back just below the freezer -- part of the adjustment dial.

RE: Why do I need a DC to DC charger?

There's a lot of ridiculous advice in this thread. Maybe a little good too -- but I'm way too smart to keep reading when I see horse- I mean nonsense.

RE: Truck Camper Cable Entry for DC-DC Charger Wiring

I used one of these and the matching plug. I think it's called a 'tail gate' connector or something like that. http://www.ctwillis.com/car/2500HD/ChargeCircuit/photos/108_1201.JPG width=650 You're going to use a solenoid or equivalent - right?!, to disconnect the circuit when the truck isn't running. My charge circuit
