RE: Transporting Raft from Campsite to Launch Ramp?

I'm posting these only for fun. This 1st one was in Alaska. https://i.imgur.com/JBq5E56l.jpg This one my daughter sent me yesterday on the way to the shore. https://i.imgur.com/xni5WaVl.jpg

RE: 2020 Jayco GrayHawk Prestige 29 MVP Water Overflow?

His Jayco does not have a gravity fill. It fills from the City water connection. Doug Mine does also. There is a selctor valve for filling, normal usage (with water pump), city and winterize. Next to the hose connection, there is a hole which is the overflow.

RE: 2020 Jayco GrayHawk Prestige 29 MVP Water Overflow?

Do you have a little hole next to the water connection? I no longer trust my overflow which had a large bug crawl in it and die. M tank did swell up. Fortunately, caught it without damage (I have nightmares about that). Our tank is under the master bed. Now I lift the bed and watch the water level as it fills.

RE: Class C Campsite Photos. Show your stuff.

Here's another one. My favorite boondock place. Found it in 2005 in a truck camper and marked it on my GPS. Stopped there last August. On the Cassiar Highway on the way to the Yukon. https://i.imgur.com/ke2xg3Xl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/OwgVcQUl.jpg

RE: Class C Campsite Photos. Show your stuff.

That shot reminds me of when we were there in '08, we got set up in the CG, and wanted to go up to the Tower, I thought the road we came in on dead ended a little past the CG, basically it does, right in the parking lot of the Visitor Center, AT the Tower, which we found out AFTER hiking up the hill to the Tower, with a lot of huffing & puffing, I'm still not living that one down. But all in all we did enjoy the hike Oh, my God, I can surely sympathize with you. That is a hike.

RE: Help with Long Term planning for Alaska

I did Alaska in 2005 in a truck camper pulling a little box trailer so I had everything I needed, including an inflatible boat. Other than 1 week in Alaska when my wife flew up, it just just me and my dog. Last year, my wife and I (also a dog) made the same trip in our Class C. Much more comfortable. Since we towed a 4 wheel drive SUV we could access everything I was able to in the pickup in 2005. We experienced no damage to our rig, except 2 windshield chips - one in Wyoming in a construction zone and one on the SUV driving on the Seward Highway. Just take it slow and agree with other advice to slow down and move as far right as possible when trucks and other rvs are coming the other direction. Great trip - you will really enjoy it.

RE: Is anyone here into surf fishing?

With the right rig, you can cast a lot farther than 40'. I can get about 100 yards.

RE: Anybody do a fall (sept/oct) Newfoundland Labrador

We're thinking about doing an eastern Canada trip this September. Many of the campgrounds in eastern canada close in September. I was thinking about the same trip. Still some nice places open but as you get to the end of September lots are closed or closing. Since I doubt we would be staying for days at a location, I'd be happy to boondock. Anyone know a good website for this info in Canada? Thanks,

RE: to plug in or not to plug in when mhome is at home

I do not plug in when not using the rig. I did install a disconnect switch in the positive line from the batteries which I turn off. When I do turn on the switch, after weeks of being off, the meter indicates 12.5V on 2 6 volt batteries.

RE: Recommendations for Moab campground

Look into Deadhorse State Park. This is about 30 mins west of Moab but a really spectacular State Park. Great campsites and the view from the overlook is unbelievable. Even if youo don't stay there, it's worth a day visit. Not sure they have full hookups but definately electric with dump station. https://i.imgur.com/7P9DElxl.jpg

RE: E-450 Spare Tire carriers

I went with the Roadmaster carrier. https://i.imgur.com/JXU4mMFl.jpg Got a nice cover for it. https://i.imgur.com/q2Ru6epl.jpg Tow my SUV behind it. No problems to Alaska and back. And did not need it.

RE: Uncrowded Colorado campgrounds

Hundreds of boondocking locations and NF campgrounds. It is camping paradise. We are starting in the Pagosa Springs area and working north from their next month. We did the same 2 weeks ago. Found a beautiful spot just south of Poncha Springs. No one around at all. Suspect there are more using this site now.

RE: Leveling Blocks vs jack pads

We have jacks on our Class C. They work great. I made blocks out of 2x6 cut 12' long and alternated 2 layers to make 3+" blocks 12x12. My jacks are pretty far under the rig. Got a pole with a hook to push them in under the jack pad and then pull them out. Then I put SnapPads on. They are awesome. Now I only use the blocks when the ground is really soft or we are so uneven I need to raise one sife or front up a lot more than normal.

RE: TSD Fuel Card

Just use your TDS card at Love's, TA or PETRO and love it.

RE: Opening of National Parks, Forests & State Parks

Does anyone know if Colorado BLM land will be open May 1 for boondocking?

RE: Long arm of the law...

The appropiate sentence should be to spend one month the hottest one in Death Valley with only his swiming suit, no shoes, no pants, no shirt, no hat and a canteen of water only! Betya he would not do it again! navegator And a toothbrush and spit to clean up his vandalism.... Great idea.

RE: Rear Hitch Receiver

If you've ever been being a trailer and seen how much it bounces up and down, the 300# acts more like 600#. IMO

RE: RV supply new and used

I remember the crash vividly. Strangely, when we ordered the '08 Dynasty in January of '07, I took the money out of an investment not realizing the bubble was about ready to pop. In a sense, the Dynasty was almost free. I took the money out of the investment when it was high, then it fell 50%. So as an example, if there was $10 in the investment, I took out $4 which left me with $6. If I had waited, the $10 investment would have fallen to $5 and the new RV would still be about the same to buy new at $4 leaving me $1 in the investment. The new unit may have been a little cheaper but the investment tanked as did most all investments. So, I'm glad we bought when the investments were high as we got the Dynasty almost free! LOL! I don't think the used units had any advantage. The market was saturated with new and used as people wanted to get out from under the payments (if financed) or just wanted to get out as fuel was very expensive at that time. I remember in '08 while we were traveling diesel fuel was $4.99 a gallon. We had taken a trip up around Lake Superior into Canada where fuel was $5.25 a gallon. We were able to enter Canada from Minnesota and then re-entering the USA in Michigan. We were able to make the whole trip without refueling in Canada and I refueled in Michigan at $4.99 a gallon. Our 150 gallon fuel tank sure came in handy then! Safe Quarantine! MM. I used the same thinking when I paid off a legacy pledge early in January. Had a stock with a lot of gains and it was at it's high so decided there were several investment reasons to do this before my estate would have to do it. Maybe this stock will make it back to the high but might be years. Saved a lot of shares.
