RE: Waste water totes for fresh water

I use a spray tank with the pump already mounted on it (never had anything in it put potable water). I took off the spray hose and attached a garden hose quick connect and for the electrical changed the alligator clips to a standard rv plug. You can get these sized from 15 to 50 gallons or more.

RE: New battery cost.

I saw group 31 lithium batteries at bass pro the other day for $900 and some change. I think i will stick with my regular Walmart batteries

RE: Fifth wheel length question

Over the last 25 years we have had everything from a 8' truck camper to a 38' fifth wheel and several in between. Considering we really like OLDER national parks and COE parks, size is a very limiting factor. I sometimes wish our 31'fiver was smaller. Most of these parks will have some sites for the bigger rigs but not nearly as many as those for smaller rigs

RE: Using my phone hotspot for the tv.

That is what I do. I used to have the family phones and a hotspot for traveling internet. I finally got smart and realized the data is unlimited on our phone plans but rather expensive on the hotspot. I bought another phone on ebay, activated it and deactivated the hotspot. This phone is just used as a dedicated hotspot when traveling. I also have a booster in the fiver with an external antenna mounted on a painter's pole which can go up 20 feet or more. If there is any signal at all, I have pretty good internet for streaming netflix, etc.

RE: Water at spigots, shower, toilet, etc. with pump shut off?

Some rigs have an accumulator tank which would hold the water pressure a little longer but it will still stop after a little bit

RE: Drill motor for stabilizers

I use a small cordless dewalt impact driver. It works great

RE: Extending Wifi Range???

Not to hijack the thread, but has anyone had any luck with the wifi extenders working through a metal sided building?

RE: Advice on Best Type of Internet

I can only speak for Hughesnet and I would not wish it on my worst enemy. I had their service for 4 years because it was our only option but what they promised and what I got was not the same. I was supposed to be getting 20 mbps but the average was closer to 3 mbps and that doesn't even include ping latency

RE: Water damage self repair?

You always have the option to get the outside sealed back up to prevent further damage and leave it alone. Unless it is a true structural issue or you just can't stand it, you could spend your time camping rather than working on it.

RE: Cleaning A/C coils: DIY or hire a pro? (See March 8 update)

When mine started icing up, the taping had come loose in the plenum, mixing the hot air and cold air preventing all of the air from flowing through the evaporator coils. When I got everything sealed back properly, I had much better air flow though the duct work and no more icing

RE: Potable Water Transportation

I bought a 25 gal ATV sprayer with a tank and pump already attached. Did away with the spray wand and put a garden hose quick connect on the pump and a regular 7 way connector on the electric cord to plug into the truck. Some might not like it but it works for me.

RE: DIY storm shield / cover for inverter generator?

I do not haul it there on the road but my small generator sits on a rack on the back bumper when I am using it. I bought a sheet of corrugated plastic sheet from home depot and folded it in half to form a "a" frame to sit over the generator and rack.

RE: Colter Bay RV Park - Tetons

When we were there in 2016, we had a long bed crew cab pulling a 38' fiver and had no problems in our site. I think I actually called to make reservations instead of doing it online and I made reservations nearly a year in advance
