RE: Portable Washer & Dryer?

Honestly speaking there is a wide range of dryers, from the cheapest folding drying racks to the laundry dryers. So, it depends on your budget and free space you have to place it. I have a Panda dryer in my bathroom and I'm very pleased with it. Here is a proper review on it https://pickadvisor.org/best-portable-dryers/ It's little, fits well on a corner. It works well for me, but if more than two people would use it simultaneously, I think that the laundry volume probably would be too much for this machine. It shuts down to protect itself from overheating. Once it happened when I did several big loads in a row. But, it’s fine, just let it cool down for some time. All in all, I pleased with it. You can set different drying programs depending on fabric and time you have.

RE: Uncomfortable Sofa

It is hard to find a comfortable one without going to a furniture store. Take measurements in the store and buy it online, if it's cheaper this way. I did exactly like that with my recliner and I'm happy with my choice. I can sleep, nap, read or just watch TV with superior comfort.

RE: Ceramic Heater Safety

We use a Honeywell HeatGenius heater.(https://www.amazon.com/Honeywell-HeatGenius-Multi-Directional-Programmable-Thermostat/dp/B01M17VVJ7/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=Honeywell+HCE840B+HeatGenius+Ceramic+Heater+Black+Energy+Efficient+1500+Watt+Custom+Comfort+with+6+Heat+Settings%2C+Quiet+Mode+%26+Auto-Off+Heat+Phase+Timer+for+Home%2C+School+or+Office&qid=1576643962&sr=8-1) It is easily controlled, has a two-hour auto-off heat phase timer, overheat protection. Also it has a quiet mode setting and is made of high quality heat resistant plastic. We love it!

RE: Camping with a baby

Just to add a little more. We usually take a travel bassinet with us, so that our little one feels comfortable as well. He sleeps better in it and we sleep better as well. And we take a high chair for him . It is carriable and portable what makes it very comfortable in travel conditions.

RE: RV toilet paper

We used to buy an RV toilet paper (this one https://www.amazon.com/Thetford-03300-Aqua-Soft-Toilet-Tissue/dp/B073Z5KFGC/ref=sr_1_14?keywords=Thetford+Quick-Dissolve+Rv+Toilet+Paper&qid=1576464250&sr=8-14 ) and now we see no difference except the price! We used to believe that we should use a toilet paper that is made specially for RV toilets. That it ensures no clogging and it is rapid-dissolving. But after some time we just started to buy a regular toilet paper package which says "septic safe" just like the RV stuff.

RE: Funny, sad and embarrassing.....

I am just trying not to leave my DeLonghi heater alone in the room. I have a pet that can knock the heater over. But I leave it on when I go to sleep. It has an in-built timer so it shuts off automaticallly after several hours. (https://pickadvisor.org/best-space-heaters-for-basement/ )I don't have a story with a furnance firing up , but once our microwave oven was left unattended, when my grandmother just set the timer for several hours (!) to warm up her food and forgot about it. Fortunately, that day I came home earlier from work and turned it off. Everything was fine, but the plate was burnt black and smelled smoke.

RE: Hey Smokers! (meat, that is)

We use a Char-Broil Big Easy smoker and grill for camping. It is easy to assemble and use and it is surely worth the money. As a backyard grill this one is perfect for us. Meat is very tender, smokey with a nice crust on the outside. My wife likes everything I grill and smoke for her. (https://pickadvisor.org/best-infrared-grill/ )

RE: What Portable Propane Gas Grill Do You Use?

I use Solaire SOL-EV17A grill ( https://www.amazon.com/Solaire-SOL-EV17A-Everywhere-Portable-Stainless/dp/B003UNTIG6/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=Solaire+SOL-EV17A&qid=1576126650&sr=8-1) It is propane gas grill and what I really like about it is that it preheats very quick, in just three minutes. Very convenient when you very hungry and want to eat now and don't want to spend much time to set it up and preheat. I use one-pound propane tank, but you can use a larger tank as well. Stainless still, easy to clean and easy to assemble. I use it more than 5 years and it still works as the day I bought it.

RE: Anybody else have trouble packing for camping

One thing that I don't like about camping is packing. That's why I plan everything beforehand, make a list of things to bring along, just to be sure I'll take everything and won't be in panic in a last minute. It is convenient to go camping with friends, in a bunch of people, because you can share your meals and it's easier to buy food and other stuff. The best thing I've learned about camping is that every single thing that you can do to make everything smaller, more compact gives you more room and you carry less.

RE: Yamaha Generator question

Not so long ago I bought a new Yamaha EF2000iSv2 generator. Maybe someone has already had an experience with this gen and can suggest how many appliances can I run with it?

RE: New coffee maker

As my wife says-morning is for coffee and contemplation. We use AICOOK Espresso and Coffee Machine. It's energy efficient, compact and easy to clean. We like it a lot. There is nothing like a cup of fresh-brewed coffee in the morning. It gives us energy for the whole day.

RE: Traveling Alone

Before marriage I've travelled alone and I didn't feel lonely. But, travelling solo has it's pros and cons. For starters, there is one fact I'd like to note. Sometimes it happens that people really want to travell to see the different countries, cities, but they just afraid doing this alone. They just wait for the right moment to come, when their friends or relatives can go with them, but it's actually only upsetting. I had it as well. But once, I had a very good opportunity to go abroad and thought that I shouldn't whistle for a wind and just used my chance and went alone. So, that trip was very exciting and challenging in the same time, because I had never travelled alone and I wanted to discover what I'm capable of when I am out of my comfort zone. That was my first journey that jolted me into travelling solo experience. So, these is my positives and negatives about RV travelling: Positives: - you meet people and situations that teach you things that can't be learned when you are in your comfort zone. - you have an endless amount of opportunities to meet people, make friends and that is one of the most exciting things about travelling. - travelling solo turned me into a good photographer. I had all the time in the world to take some amazing pictures. - the entire decision making authority is yours and there is no one to influence you. Negatives: - As I've mentioned the entire decision making process is in your hands. It can be a drawback as well, because you don't have someone to help you and give you a piece of advice. So, trust your instincts and sometimes don't be afraid to ask for help from strangers. I mean, the world is not without good people. There are people everywhere willing to help. - you don't have someone to share the moment. And even if you send a photo to your friend about how exciting the place was he/she won't share it to the full.

RE: What do you want Santa to bring for your camper this year

Camping is one of the things in life I enjoy to the full. So, I want more time for camping! And may be I'll need a new bigger truck, because this year I've finally convinced my wife to bring the baby and to come for a full family camp out. So we need more room to make our trip more comfortable!
