RE: Fire, Cast Iron, and Soot

OP here - thanks for all the replies! I'll try the wet paper towel thing... I just want to be able to use my pan on my stove at home too. What I did was to wrap the pan up in paper towels and a plastic bag - then when I got it home I scrubbed it clean. It was really sooty!

Fire, Cast Iron, and Soot

I've finally gotten into cast iron cooking. And I want to do it over a fire when we're camping. What do you do about the black soot that coats the outside of the pan? Do you just clean it off? And - how? Or do you have a special pan that is always getting sooty? Not sure about what to do...

RE: What's up with CGs?

I agree with everything mentioned, let me add one small Item. Check the REVIEWS on the campground, best way to find what is actually going on. Mike Speaking of which, is Woodall's no longer around? What is the go-to site now for finding campgrounds and reviews?This site: Used to be RV Park Reviews

RE: Best route in WV

There are no interstate or 4 lane highways in that part of WV, either route will involve some grades and turns, it's WV. Personally I would use 219 as much as you can. During weekdays the obstacles will be slow moving log trucks and coal or gravel toting tri axles.That's exactly why I'm asking - I'm leaning toward more of 219 myself. The Garmin has taken us on some pretty squirrelly roads so we don't exactly trust it for the best route. Thanks!

RE: Best route in WV

WE have been to Seneca Rocks and Canaan Valley State Park. But we were at both many years ago. I do remember coming down 219 pulling a 24 ft trailer. All I can tell you is that the roads were fairly good but I guess it depends on what size unit you have.We'll be driving our B - so not a problem there - just want it to be a somewhat relaxing drive.

Best route in WV

Looking for the best route to go from Spruce Knob in West Virginia to Deep Creek Lake in Maryland. Google Maps sends me up 28 (and 33) turning left with 33, turning right on 32, up to 219. My Garmin sends me up 28 (and 33) turning left much further on - on 42, turning right on 560, and finally hitting 219 much further north than Google's first choice. According to Google the 2 routes are just 1 minute difference - and I'm not concerned with that. What I want to do is go on the best roads - ones with good pavement and not too squirrelly, you know - ups and downs with switchbacks. Anyone here with knowledge about those roads?

RE: Solo fire pit

A couple of days ago with our little Campfire model Solo Stove: https://i.imgur.com/whLsIeel.jpg

RE: Solo fire pit

We've got one. It's a very small one since we take it in our Class B. Our model is the Campfire. We can use it to cook over and just have fun - using mostly twigs and sticks to burn. We didn't buy any accessories. They really do work as advertised - I actually first saw one on a youtube channel where the guy was cooking over it using a tripod and cast iron dutch oven - it was a Ranger. They are well made from stainless steel and engineered to be pretty much smokeless. The way the air is fed into them is unique and you can have a roaring fire within minutes. Then when there are just cold ashes left you tip it over and dump them out - that's it for cleanup. Don't know any cons...

RE: My Chevrolet Express van Class B- camper

^^ Those are really neat -I've got a hiking stick/monopod with a strap just like those - only not handmade. Just got a mount for my phone for Christmas which I use to take panoramic videos... Great job!

RE: Anode rod help

Thanks to everyone for the replies. We do drain it when not using and we use a magnesium rod. I learned those things here - we used to have an aluminum rod and it never wore out. So - we won't worry that it will break off in the water heater - very good to know!

Anode rod help

I'm still new to this anode rod business as we've always had an Atwood water heater... So tell me - is this normal and should it be replaced now? https://i.imgur.com/GN8fV1yl.jpg We're afraid that it will keep getting thinner at that one spot and then fall off in the water heater. Is that possible?

RE: Keeping fridge door open while in storage

When I leave my AZ home for the summer, I fill the refrigerator and freezer with crumpled up brown paper and keep the door shut after thoroughly cleaning and drying it. Been doing it for years. Leaving the door open when it's hot (I leave the A/C on 88 degrees F) can dry out the gasket if the door is left open. In my RV I leave my refrigerator running all the time but if I were to leave it off, I'd do the same. This works. I tried various things with the fridge in my Texas room. I used the clamps to keep it open and it warped the gasket. So then I just left the door open all the way and it warped the door a bit. Found drying out the fridge really well and closing the door worked. I added crumbled up newspaper to catch any residual moisture, but this works great and keeps the door in the proper position to avoid warping or gasket problems. DaleI have to agree with this. It is definitely better for the seal for the door to be closed. My fridges are never musty when opened in the spring.

RE: Level rv-refrigerator

Modern absorption reffigerators tolerate 3 degree side to side, 7degree front to rear off level for extended times without harm. If you can walk in the unit without troubles, your fridge is fine. There was a time when perfectly level was critical, no more. Well, what does "modern" mean? What's the cutoff year that makes it not so critical? IMWTK :)

RE: Oil changes with synthetic

"Loving the replies" - So you're trolling? I was thinking the same thing. No one here is going to change his mind. He already knew what the replies were going to be before he ever posted the question. OP here again... Wow - sorry guys. Because I'm happy to hear what you all think I'm a troll? We never did synthetic oil before. Just wanted informed information on how to do it. I trusted you guys here on RV.net. Seriously - not a troll, just wanted information. We've used regular motor oil before this and thought that synthetic would be better and we wouldn't need to change it so often. Carry on...

RE: Oil changes with synthetic

OP here again... Loving the replies. As to cold weather starts - doesn't happen. It's kept in a garage with no starts over the winter. I know folks will come in and say you have to start your engine every month or so to keep the seals moist or whatever... But - our 1984 Bronco also has never been started in the winter and so far so good. Thanks for all the input - feeling better about our plan to not do it every year.

RE: Oil changes with synthetic

OP here - thanks guys for the replies! I think I see the reasoning for every year if you don't put too many miles on - thinking that the driving is all short duration... Our 3000 miles are all trips - long distance highway miles. I think we should be safe with every 2 years. Correct me if I'm wrong. :)

Oil changes with synthetic

How often do you change your oil if you use full synthetic oil? We have a Chevy 6.0 gasoline engine. We are putting Mobil 1 synthetic oil into it and are finding differing requirements. Some say go by miles, others say if you don't put on that many miles change it every year. We only drive it 2000 to 3000 miles per year. Can we really wait for 7000 miles or more to change it or should it be done every year? My thinking is why go synthetic if you have to do it every year anyway?

RE: Favorite travel game

Thanks much for the ideas! We'll definitely stock up on a few different ones. Any game has to be small since we have one small game shelf in our B. (No corn hole, or jarts...) :) Edit - looking in our game drawer at home I found a card game called Five Crowns and a couple of bags of dominoes. Looks like we'll have to get our old brains learning how to play these...
