RE: RV Ferry cost to Vancouver Island?

When doing the dollar calculations..I am sure you are bearing in mind the exchange rate, which is very favourable to visitors from the US. Gary Haupt

RE: Newbie boondockers left a mess in Eastern Sierra

And sadly, it is everywhere. Last yeras stay at home crowd discovered the outdoors and trashed it pretty much anywhere they could get to. Every Rec Site and foresrty road in BC was jammed with boondocking grandstanders with their chainsaws, atv's, motorcycles and over-ran pretty much anywhere they could get to and probably a few places they boated or flew into. And when all else failed, they abandoned their broken and busted **** where it last worked. I am quite sure Washington and Oregon suffered a similar fate, judging from the social media groups I belong to. Gary Haupt

RE: CDL Required to Drive Class A?

If a person is driving an air-brake equipped vehicle, there should be no question about getting an endorsement. If the driver has no idea how air brakes work nor how to check them or operate them properly/safely, they are an accident looking for a hill to happen on. Gary Haupt

RE: Cost of new fiberglass roof on a 32' Winnie

I have nothing to add to the insurance part of the discussion. However, should you find yourself involved in the choices of what to do? May I suggest looking at Rhino Bed Liner. There was some talk of people considering using it. If memory serves me, it was pretty highly touted. It is mixed for a specific application, so a certain amount of flex is called for, for an RV roof. Tough stuff, durable, water proof. Gary Haupt Do they have colors other than black? I can't imagine a black roof.Bedliner is a good option but you still need a good roof to spray it on. Yes...it would require a clean roofing space...new plywood I would guess. Gary

RE: Just a little road trip....

Monday night in Kimberly...minus 10...****, that was cold. Along about 5 I was up doing the manly thing and found there was a frozen line or water at the pump...but frozen. I accessed the pump and wrapped a blanket around it. I leave the hot water tank on, in cold spells which keeps that whole under sink area warm. Anyway, by 7, it was running again. Wasn't any milder...kept dropping.... Next day it was on to Golden...that whole day was cold, windy and just not a day made for doing much except driving. Had to resolve a computer issue, so availed myself of the wifi provided by Save-On Foods. At the mid-way..a beer at the Whitetooth Craft House made it all seem possible. https://i.imgur.com/237PI7Y.jpg?1]https://i.imgur.com/237PI7Y.jpg?1 Like this? This morning thru the Rogers Pass...and man...such a fabulously sunny morning. Those mountains, covered in ice and snow...and no traffic at all..and no where to pull of to take a picture. The snow plowing had effectively eliminated any view points. If anyone needs to know...year round water and dump in Revelstoke by the city yards. Down into Salmon Arm tonight..supper at a favourite joint..Yans... well, not AT Yans..in the parking lot. We'll get home tomorrow. Gary

RE: Just a little road trip....

I wish I could join you! Even to Penticton would be nice! Think you are going to run into nasty weather? Have a good trip! Stay safe! The forecast shows sun for the next couple days, with cool temps. We could get some snow, no doubt but we can park whenever we need to. Don't HAVE to be be home till we get there, although the lady has a hair appointment on Friday and..you know..things could be tense. Gary

RE: Just a little road trip....

Have a good trip Gary - sounds like fun. Oh and make sure not to cross various lines on a map - according to politicians license plates begin shedding virus’s’z immediately upon leaving um town? or is it health region? Or is it province? Anyway it begins immediately... The gov't request is to not cross provincial boundaries, so we are within BC's lines. Gary

RE: Just a little road trip....

You could park overnight at the boat launch at Syringa Creek PP. during the day there are people walking dogs etc at the boat launch and at 1/2 km farther up the road at the campground, however by late afternoon, there won’t be a sole around. The boat launch is the first left after the big condo complex ( couple hundred yards) After you turn in, I suggest taking a right turn at the bottom of the little hill, as you enter the large parking area. After you enter the big parking area at the bottom of the little hill, the all season boat launch is to the boat left, and the summer season boat launch is to the right. Summer boat launch is a long ways from the water right now, so little if any traffic down that way. Have fun on your trip. Soup. Thank you...we rolled just a bit past, to Robson...the Lions Head pub...they okay'd parking in their lot..and here we are, deer trotting by this morning. Love their deep fried pickles.... Gary

Just a little road trip....

Leaving this morning..Sunday...for a 5 day drive. Off east on the Crowsnest, as far as Castlegar, turn north up the west side of the Rockies...into Revelstoke, on to Salmon Arm and hoe on Thursday. Just want to shake out the cobwebs a bit and I have a couple cftar brew places to investigate. Due to the pandemic, we follow very strict procedures..in the brix n stix home and the wheeled one. Masks on when in any public spaces, we have two washing stations, so upon entry, washy hands. We do not socialize..I can see the eye brows at mention of a craft house. I cannot speak for anywhere else, but in BC these are closely regulated. Names and number at the door, wait till assigned a cleaned space, staff are always masked. Customer is masked until seated...and before leaving the table. So...looking forward to just being on the road for a few days. Gary Haupt

RE: Charging Li-Ions batteries

"A way to keep the li from freezing or relying on a heating pad." and for me..there-in lies the weak spot. I live in BC and right now, as I type it is -3, feels like -10 and has a good bit of overnight snow. I prefer the KISS way of doing things and having to add a heating element, that must in turn be powered for "2 hours prior to beginning charging" is just trouble looking to happen. Thanks for your input folks. Gary

RE: Charging Li-Ions batteries

Ok if you have a rechargable battery.. ANY Type. what you need is the proper charger.. Not too fast, not too slow.. Proper voltages and so on. And they make chargers for the batteries Some the charge controller is part of the battery Package) https://bioennopower.com/ for example I believe (and I stress that word Believe) makes them that way.. Do not know about battle Born but I believe (Again stress that word) they have a deal with Progressive Dynamics. Okay..thanks for this.... Gary

RE: Charging Li-Ions batteries

Reading up some on the topic and charging a bank seems to be an issue. Is anyone familiar with this application in the RV world? and or sail boats? A bit of backstory...my S-I-L is planning to build a bank for his sailboat...to power his electric motor. He is offering to build me a bank for my RV and I have been 'encouraged' by one of our members, to do a bunch of research. So..doing that as well as asking here.I don't think there is any issue with charging a lithium battery to a set voltage to match the required specification. The real issue is the BMS to balance the cells, limit charging current, limit discharge current, limit high and low voltage, etc. All of which changes based on temperature. I think most RVers use drop in batteries although a few roll there own. Are you building a battery from individual cells and connecting your own BMS/controller? I don't have the foggiest idea....he is building his own..at least that is his plan..and offered to build me a bank as well. I was 'assuming' that I didn't have to understand anything more than I already do with 12v..which..things work or OMG the batteries are dead..now what? I posted my question hoping it was going to be an easily understood answer..now, I see that I must turn to a mind booster....will that be Makers Mark or Knob Creek... Just as an aside...they have bought a 30ft 45 year old CnC and the engine is rusted to rat s***. Now out..they are heading for an electric motor with a rack of solar and bank of batteries. I have the motor link if anyone is interested..the name is Thunderstruck. Gary
