RE: What type of insulation?

If the roof was totaly sealed from inside,wouldnt that stop any humidity aka air Moisture geting in? I have plywood roof and glued on rigid foam everywhere from inside so no moisture can ever get onto the plywood. This rigid foam is completely waterproof as its used for insulating basement walls on the outside,but also floats for house boats.

RE: Electric Vehicles? Towing? Hauling?

Software updates are part of owning any vehicle these days. The worlds largest lithium producers are Australia Chile and Argentina. At least as stable as some of our fossil fuel sources. you do realize that the US is now an oil exporting nation, right? good to know that if something should go ka-bloom we should be able to meet our own needs. what software updates, apart from the on-board GPS in our Liberty and are 100% optional, are needed for my gassers in order for them to run? how hack-proof is your EV? Better then that Tesla catches thiefs :D https://youtu.be/JJzVgg9I8Xk https://youtu.be/XeKv_JK0vaI

RE: Electric Vehicles? Towing? Hauling?

The simple solution is to require an odometer reading at plate renewal time with a per mile tax levied at the time. The big issue arising around here at the moment though is income tax. A bunch of people are going to be in for a rude awakening. Most government offices and public buildings have EV charge stations, most are no charge. Some disgruntled employee filed a complaint to the nice tax people that SOME employees were getting their commute to work subsidized by free electricity to charge their EV’s. In Canada this is a taxable benefit. Odometer reading is requiered already here when geting new sticker each year Maybe the Best way to tax everyone fairly is to use Tolls on highways

RE: Electric Vehicles? Towing? Hauling?

There seems to be quite a push lately for zero emission vehicles and electric only vehicles. How on Earth would these ever work for us? You can't go cross country in an electric vehicle in a practical way. You don't get great range when towing or hauling a TC. What are we going to do when these become mandatory?? I'm also not sold on them in general as I think it's less carbon not to manufacture a new car (with lithium batteries) in the first place and continue running your old car. Especially given people forget it still takes the same energy to move a car from the bottom of the hill to the top. Sane energy has to come from somewhere. It's just being made remotely and pollution somewhere else. What are we going to do when it's all electric and zero emissions becomes mandatory? I'm a very off grid person and I'm disgusted by the on grid nature of this trend as well as the requirements in a few places that all vehicles must be electric now. I doubt Ev will be mandatory anytime soon, But once EV trucks are available at reasonable price youll forget about diesels quickly https://youtu.be/5n9xafjynJA

RE: Looking for motorhome to travel to Alaska suggestions?

I am getting very close to buying my first and only motorhome. I am planning on full timing in it and go to Canada and then Alaska. Should I get one with no slide outs to help maintain inside temperature? I would never get MH with slides,too many potential problems and unecesary if youre alone. I lived in TC quite comfortably and imagine that any MH would be plenty comfy even without slides.

RE: Parking at Walmart

We shop at the Fleming Island Walmart, US 17 and county road 220. There are campers and semi’s parked over night regularly on the lot. Theres a diference between daytime parking and nightime. No one is shoping at night,so there is plenty of space to park.

RE: Anyone Notice Stiff Tariff Increases On Goods?

Not interested in nationalism, politics or other theater... Solar panels or anything else? How about stuff from Taiwan. I don't see why their stuff would jump but then who knows... Solar panels in Canadian Tire are about twice as expensive now then before tarifs,havent really looked any other places as I dont need any. Most important,Meat is still very cheap here. Vegies fruits are same,even stuff imported from S.America,but then I shop at farmers market that undersels big stores by far.

RE: Drinking Campground Water...

I dont take chances on unknown water source, Drink only beer.. Btw boiling dirty water for 10 minutes makes it perfectly safe to drink..

RE: Drinking Campground Water...

Saving the planet by recycling and boycotting plastic packaging, but traveling around in or towing an RV while getting 7 mpg :S Did you know that Plastic can be recycled and turned into fuel https://youtu.be/lQKKFalZPOM

RE: 32 Truck Camper Manufacturers ... Wow!

For those asking for aluminum TC this is interesting, if he ever gets production going,which I doubt from such amateurish design. Also its bit too small https://youtu.be/TCc_cXLYWV8

RE: Informal Tour Of Arctic Fox Factory

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x9rmC2iacvI Dont like that construction. Corners look like weak spot where water intrusion may get in eventualy.. Rather have one piece fiberglass like Nothern Lite. Or something like this Ausie rig https://youtu.be/zb9dMJyfXQM

RE: Saga of Cell Phone Accident...

Boy we are up to 9 pages. My view is that is not the phone, not the 8" touch screen, not the French Fries in the lap, BUT the nut behind the wheel! LOL.....exactly. At some point in the past they did away with drivers education in our local school districts. Now it's to the point that the first generation of those who had no formal drivers education have kids who have came of driving age and guess who is doing the training. I've had my share of crashes and booboos over the years but the next SOB, who is typically 20 something and often female, that cuts me off at highway speeds or insists on riding my bumper while doing 80 mph just may get the last lap running 2nd in turn 3 treatment. Its hard to hold back and not go back to my circle track days. As far as the 9 pages, what is more dangerous to your well being and sanity? Driving on the highway or reading this thread lol. Today, 90% of the people on the road don't take driving seriously. A vehicle, any vehicle (or RV) is a lethal weapon, just like a firearm and like a firearm, vehicles and driving them needs to be taken seriously. Don't know how many times I've seen people yacking on a cell phone, reading a book, putting on makeup and even playing with themselves, all while driving down the road... Amazing, amazing stupidity. Mentioning firearms brings up a funny story, ,well not so funny for the dumbell friend of a friend who went deer hunting and put loaded rifle on the seat next to him,gun barrel facing him,no safety on ! You can guess what hapened next,,he survived minus his manly parts, Got a hole size of a fist in his leg too Good think he had cell phone to call for help before bleeding to death.

RE: Saga of Cell Phone Accident...

Far as I'm concerned, cell phones are the worst electronic invention of the 21st century. If I must use one (I have one), it's always hands free or I pull over on the berm and use it. I think anyone in an accident where the cell phone is contributory should have a minimum 30 days in the slammer. I always wonder what is so important that people need to answer a call when driving.? Cell phones are great invention,people just need to pull over,stop then talk. Btw In Ontario its 500$ fine nowadays for distracted driving.
