RE: 2006 Rage’n Toy Hauler

The OP has left is for now. To be continued, perhaps.

RE: Required signing waiver of responsibilty

Attorneys are only acting on behalf of their clients. My experience is that they're usually acting on behalf of themselves.

RE: Want to add solar battery charger for storage use

Yep...go big, as dedmiston says. 100-200watts will keep you happy when you're out there in Glamis or Borrego. We put in 700 watts of panels. You can see the sun get dim when it comes over our roof. I think we even get a little charge from the full moon.

RE: Water pressure - why does pump run when city water connected

Hey Dan - Dumb questions are OK here. Welcome to the forum. For starters, the other comments are right that you should definitely turn off the pump when you're connected to city water. It's an either/or thing. There's something interesting about what you said though. You mentioned that you have a 40 PSI regulator and the pump is also running. I don't know this for certain, but I would take that to mean that your pump puts out more than 40 PSI and is making up the difference between its max and the 40 PSI coming from the city inlet. (That could be totally off, but it's an interesting puzzler.) You also bring up another peculiarity of the toy hauler community related to full hookups. Most of the toy hauler owner's I see here and on other forums are primarily boondockers and we feel like bumpkins when we go to an RV park and don't know how everything works. My wife and I took a 10,000+ mile trip last fall and I still felt like an imposter at the end, even after setting up at RV parks for months. I'm used to seeing my buddies unpack all their gear and level up their rigs by digging holes in the dirt. On the rare trips when we have hookups, it's funny to watch everyone staring down the end of their water hoses and tangling up in their shore power cords like circus bears. It's such a different culture.

RE: Required signing waiver of responsibilty

This smells like an attorney's idea. A lot of HOAs in my area are having trouble reopening our association pools under the County's new COVID health guidelines. The #1 reason most of the HOAs haven't reopened is because their attorneys have advised them against it. One of the ideas I've heard floated is that residents should sign a release first, which is ridiculous because the homeowners technically own the association pools. My point is, a lot of zealous attorneys are advising their clients to either shut down or make releases a condition of reopening. Maybe that's what's happening with this park.

RE: Yellowstone in October

Keep in mind that the park's facilities begin to close in October. Our family stayed at the lodge once and we were there for their closing night. The staff were pretty....distracted. Portions were generous, but service was spotty. The vibe was amazing though and we had a great time. This was probably 20 years ago and our kids still remember it.

RE: Culling the herd....

It's remarkable that she made it to 72 before finally reaching the boundaries of her own common sense. I'm sure it's tragic for her family nevertheless.

RE: 2006 Rage’n Toy Hauler

Also check the breakers on the gen. There's definitely no ATS though. Your shore power cord is your transfer.

RE: Flashlights

What are your thoughts about headlamps? Between the lights on our phones and the prevalence of headlamps, I haven't bought a new flashlight in years.

RE: Air Conditioning how many do not use it.

Pretty sure the OP ghosted this thread after P. 1. Yep.

RE: Florida Plates; How to Prove We haven't Been There Lately.

I think this thread stopped being constructive. Closing.

RE: Is camping Fun Anymore

Oh and to answer your question: "Is camping fun anymore?" Yes. Of course it is. Otherwise we wouldn't do it anymore. We live in the west and the majority of our camping is boondocking with friends. Our camps get pretty loud, but there's nobody around to care. Sometimes we hear other camps down the road making some noise, but it's no big deal. We also take bigger/longer trips where we stay in RV parks and campgrounds. We logged over 100 nights in improved camps last year and it still feels kind of foreign to me to have hookups. I like it that way. But yes, it's still fun. It's a blast. We have a great time and our dogs are never happier.

RE: Is camping Fun Anymore

I've noticed a slightly different phenomenon where the majority of the campers (at least it feels that way) are long term guests/residents. I feel like we get a lot of stares from the people who obviously live there. It's a very different vibe than the travelers. I've always enjoyed the casual "where ya from...where ya headed?" conversations, but there's none of that with the residents. We're lucky to get more than a "hi" or "how do you do" if we even get eye contact.

RE: Please....

Thanks for raising this topic Gary. This is a very loaded topic and it's already teetering out of control. I have thoughts about some of the high risk activities that should be avoided, but there isn't any way to share these thoughts without getting political. If anyone wants to resume this discussion, please use ATC, but know that the threads will probably be closed pretty quickly in that forum too.

RE: Electric Bikes???

My wife and I are close to 2,000 miles on our Specialized Turbo Vado biles. They were spendy, but we've really got our money's worth out of them.

RE: Ran over Gator

Another reason I travel at 55 max. Because the OPs “approximately 56mph” was too fast? Lol Please just keep in the far right lane where you’ll only aggravate the truckers. There’s safe and then there’s impeding the flow of traffic. And 55mph on an open freeway is impeding traffic. I kind of agree, except that here in CA (where Lwiddis is from), the speed limit for towing is 55. But yes, Lwiddis is kind of a dork for implying that the extra 1 MPH is what caused this to happen. He rarely returns to threads that he comments on though, so I wouldn't try too hard to engage him in a discussion.

RE: ? 12-Inch Female-Female Hose - What For?

Don't have, never had, a wastewater tote. But NRALIFR was so cocksure about it. :B Good grief. It’s to connect a blue waste water tote to your sewer drain cap.
