RE: Ray and Donna West Free RV Park, Muleshoe, TX

How about posting it here: https://freecampsites.net/ Leaving the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta and heading eastward towards Austin. TX, we stopped at this free RV park in Muleshoe, TX. It was a set of 8 pull-thru spots with full hookups (water, 20/30/50 amp electric, and sewer). Free but there was a donation box. Even had a dumpster for trash. Our spot was pretty close to level that we were able to manually level the fifth wheel while still hitched to the truck. Our 44’ fifth wheel + 22’ truck fit fine on the spot. Video walk-thru of the RV parking: https://youtu.be/zLpzTDjo1yM

RE: Recommendations for quiet portable generator

I'd buy a Harbor Freight 3500 with an extended warranty. I'd buy a champion 3400 with remote electric start.

RE: How cold can you go?

Both PhotoMike and Moving Sue have boondocked at -40. My own personal best is -37 c (-34 f). I was in a class C diesel and had a mix of summer and winter fuel. I got lucky. The worst for me was being in a 4 day blizzard where the daily high was -25. I burned lots of propane and used lots of fuel for the generator as the solar was producing little energy (it was, at that time, a 30 watt system). Winter camping can be fun. It is more fun if there is power.

RE: Keep using Eternabond until entire roof is covered?

Having used the 4 foot wide EternaBond I was surprised that it was not too difficult to apply.

RE: Winter Camping - Golf Cart

Hi, Here is a thread on winter camping. It may save you lots of grief. https://forums.goodsamclub.com/index.cfm/fuseaction/thread/tid/24160748.cfm As to the golf cart batteries. Charge them once per month.

RE: Solar wiring route?

Another vote for using the fridge chimney

RE: How cold can you go?

Hi, You may start to have serious problems at about 23 F. YMMV

EternaBond can be ordered in a roll that is four feet wide.

RE: Is a cover necessary ?

No cover for me. My first Class C was from 1987--no problems. My second one from 2005 also has never had a cover. Zero issues.

RE: Internet! Specifically video calling/conferencing!

Hi, I suggest trying "what'sapp" https://www.whatsapp.com/ It offers end to end ecription, allows voice, video, and voice messaging as well as plain old typing. I've used it successfully internationally to the UK, France, and USA from Canada, on my cell phones (bell Canada and Sasktel). What App are you trying to use? I used zoom on my old data plan and there was a lag on my clients end, I’ll be giving it another shot with my new data plan. Yesterday I tried to use google duo Andy it was awful quality.

RE: Repair costs and frequency frustration

If the roadtrek is on the sprinter chassis you may find repair costs to be "out of this world". I allot $0.25 cents per mile for maintenance costs. So at 67k miles that is about $16,750.00

RE: Wave 6 heater

Hi Ken, I think you mean CO. Unfortunately, as O2 levels start to drop, catalytic heaters start producing CO. They do not self extinguish either. Love my oil filled electric fired radiator. Although it's oxygen depletion that is the issue and not CO2 with the Olympian Wave the possibility is there with the combustion not to mention the moisture issue related to combustion also. As for me, I will stick with electric heaters.

RE: Wave 6 heater

Not too useful for boondocking unless you wish to run a generator 24/7. I won't run a generator while sleeping. All I can say is "CheapHeat"

RE: Wave 6 heater

Hi, Glad you are alive. Would it not be better to have a window and a vent opened? That may create a chimney effect to better remove the combustion products from the RV. I still won't use an unvented combustion heater, thanks. There are through the wall vented units that are more capable than the Wave units. I value the brain cells I still have left. Are you opening up too much ventilation? Manufacturer recommends 24 square inches. Two 18" tall windows opened 3/4" is all you need. Hi Don(pianotuna).........I'm still alive!

RE: Diagnosing the error: depends on the forum?

profdant139, Have you tried using "private" mode? On Firefox that is CTRL+SHIFT+P I don't know the equivalent for Mac, sorry.
