RE: Flashlights

We bought a Lux-Pro flashlight at Lowes a few years ago. https://mobileimages.lowes.com/product/converted/812436/812436015707.jpg?size=pdhi width=200 Now we have 7 of them. One in each camper, two in the barn, one in the garage, one in the kitchen, and one in the basement. I guess you can tell - we love 'em. We also have a couple of headlights for project work around the house. Don't take them camping as when you look at someone it shines in their eyes - better to shine a flashlight at the ground.

I've been seeing more and more articles about the virus hanging on to some people. Folks seem to get better only to relapse over and over again. Here is one. For folks who think this is just a flu and/or we should all just get it... I'm pretty nervous about the long-term implications.

RE: Colored party globe lights for awening? ...yeah, I know

Can only find tiny Christmas light stuff on Amazon.Search for "rv awning lights" on Amazon. There are lots.

RE: Air Conditioning how many do not use it.

For us it depends on the outside temperatures. We normally camp in the spring and fall so we don't use it much at all. Open windows are our preference. But we do use the fan for white noise at night.

RE: Basic questions about Class B's

On the surface the 24 ft B, B+, C- or C are all the same length same height and the B + and C are slightly wider. What are the details I am not seeing? Your statement: "It had the Ford 350 chassis and did not ride as well as the B's that I test drove..." for one. They drive completely differently. Your second statement "...B + and C are slightly wider" is interesting. My B is 76" wide while the Regency "B+" 94" wide per their specs. That's 18 inches of "slightly wider" :B which takes you out of parking between the lines in pretty much every standard parking spot. DaveIf you look at them side by side you will certainly see a difference. If you put my B next to a View (for instance) you will see a huge difference. Smaller in every way. My B can park and go anywhere a van can since it is one. A B+ (C-) View can't. MPG will also suffer when you are driving a large box down the road compared to a van. But - you do have to be a special person to own a B. Not everyone can do it - or will want to. Good luck!

^ "Just recently, every employee of a chicken processing plant in my state was tested for SARS-CoV-2, and they found 199 positives. Only one of those was symptomatic. This isn’t the only mass testing that has shown this to be true." This is what has been bothering me for a while now... Of the people that test positive and show up on the charts - how many are symptomatic? Also - are asymptomatic people able to infect others? I think I heard that WHO was now saying that was unlikely.

RE: Why 30 amp and not 50 amp

I've only had RVs with 30A. I always had enough power. I wouldn't want to have to deal with the big, heavy, expensive 50A cord. Why don't all RV's have 100 gallon freshwater tanks? Why don't they all have 3 AC units? Why don't they all have satellite dishes and 3 flat screens?Weez agreez.

RE: Adj. water pressure regulators

When using the FW tank the pump can be turned off when not in use. Good idea and easier than going out and turning city water supply off. I am one who has drank the "kool aid" and gone with the Watts 263A with oil filled meter. One of the best improvements we have made. I still turn the city water supply off when we leave the campsite for the day.We drank the "kool aid" too. And then we graduated to only using the tank and pump. Much easier to turn the pump off when leaving rather than remembering to turn the water supply spigot off. One time our cat turned on the bathroom faucet accidentally while hooked up to the spigot. Could have been a disaster if we weren't there and turned it off. We have a sign over the door that says "WATER OFF!" to remember to switch off the pump when we leave. When we got our Watts I don't remember the choice of an oil filled gauge. Ours came with a regular gauge and it did freeze up and break one winter. Got a new gauge - set the pressure - removed the gauge and installed a plug.

RE: Storing with blank tanks 1/4 full???

I'm amazed at all the scared-y-cats... Lots and lots of folks don't dump every time they camp - after all we're supposed to let the tank get to at least 2/3 full before we dump. At least that's what I've read on here many times... Just have enough water in there to keep it from drying out. No worries.

RE: Basic questions about Class B's

^ Wow - smaller FW tank than ours!!! I thought ours was the smallest with 14 gallons... We use those same tea containers - they are so practical and easy to handle. Another thing we do to save water is to use baby wipes for washing up - can even take a sponge bath with a couple of those. You really can learn to live with less water and not feel like you are suffering.

RE: Replacing Norcold Fridge: get 2 way or 3 way?

^ Don't forget - if you run it on 12 volt you never want to open the doors.

RE: Basic questions about Class B's

I notice most class B's have small FW tanks and very little storage. For those that dry camp how do you carry extra water? Also are there any class B's made with a slide and some kind of basement storage?It can actually be fun to figure out how to camp with limited water/storage.... We bring a few gallon jugs of water stored under the bed for cooking and possible emergencies. We don't bring lots of unnecessary stuff to set up camp - no pink flamingos, etc...

RE: NY State Parks - interesting info

Even though the governor of NYS has proclaimed that SP Campgrounds will be open I still can't make a new reservation this Year! WNYBobYeah - they're not taking new reservations for this year - you can reserve for next year though...

RE: NY State Parks - interesting info

I don't really mind any of it except to have to wear a face mask when outside our campsite area. Can't imagine hiking with a face mask on. When we're in the open air aren't we OK if we keep our distance from others? And it looks like those rules are for the rest of 2020. :(

NY State Parks - interesting info

After all of our earlier reservations were cancelled and refunded - we still have one open reservation at a NY SP. Got a letter yesterday and we are sure to cancel this reservation and have to pay the fee. Check this out... Dear Camper: We are happy to welcome you for your upcoming 2020 reservation. We want to provide you some very important information prior to your visit. In order to provide the safest environment for our patrons and staff, we have developed the following guidelines to begin our re-opening. Please read carefully; As part of the Covid-19 guidelines, and for the courtesy of other visitors and our staff, face masks must be worn when outside of your campsite area and all patrons shall practice social distancing. Only registered campers will be allowed in the campground areas, no day visitors will be permitted. In order to practice social distancing, we may need to move you to an alternate site in certain areas/loops. Cabin, Cottage and Yurt stays that are between 7 - 14 days will be reduced by 2 days in order to sufficiently clean between reservations. You will receive a refund for unused days. Bring your own linens, cookware and silverware. In order to assist us with enhanced cleaning of the accommodations, Check-in time is now 5 p.m. and Check-out time is 10 a.m. There may be limited shower and/or restroom facilities and they may be closed periodically to allow for enhanced cleaning. We ask that all campers be patient while our staff makes your stay as pleasant and safe as possible. Certain amenities may not be available. Playgrounds remain closed. If you can, PLEASE pre-register to save time at check-in. Make sure your occupants are all listed! State Park Police and operations staff will be patrolling campgrounds to ensure compliance with social distancing and crowd control measures. Anyone who does not adhere to this guidance will be requested to leave the facility, and will not receive a refund.

RE: If getting 'Service Temporarily Unavailable!'

Since I switched to forums.trailerlife.com there has been no issue. I've had to switch access portals a bunch of times since I started here. No biggie as long as one works. :)

RE: Traveling around lake michigan

US RT 2 thru the Upper Peninsula is a must. Few people know just how "wild" the UP of MI is !True - when we went last year we felt like we were not missing Alaska... Two of the highlights of our spectacular trip were Sleeping Bear Dunes and Tahquamenon Falls - not to be missed!

RE: How to camp with electric only

^ I like to do this before the water goes into the grey tank. After done washing dishes I scoop out water from the sink and pour it down the toilet. Helps sudsify the black tank too. :)

RE: Keys to reopen June 1

It’s only goin to happen if they want it too. It’s all in how they play with the numbers. And it’s been proven in the last couple of weeks just that. The Covid deaths have been manipulated. I can assure you it’s not going to be bad! Can i ask how it was proven that the death numbers have been manipulated? Hopefully that is not true.Yup - Florida is manipulating their numbers - here's the story.

RE: Where do you store your Shoes, Boots, Sandals and Slippers

We normally keep our shoes outside. A pair of easy slip one at the bottom of the steps, and we have a medium sized plastic tote that travels in the pass through, but at the campsite stays close to the door outside.This is essentially what we do - wear crocs around the campsite and take them off when we go in. When using our trailer our hiking shoes are stored on the front floor mats of the truck. With our B there is a drawer just inside the door that we store our shoes in.
