RE: RVing in the winter

Cold is relative. Short days are the biggest challenge.

RE: Battery questions for boondocking

Running the furnace for more than a few minutes in the morning or evening uses a lot of power. This time of year 200 watts is not going to keep up.

RE: Winter - Mice Nest location warning

Pack rats are the worst. They eat the insulation in engine compartments. Open the hood and keep the lights on. Evergreen boughs deter them. Set traps near tie rod ends.

Depends on what you want to use them for. For wildlife viewing you have to spend some money to get good light gathering properties. Most hunters have pretty good optics. Birders have the best optics around and they are usually pretty knowledgeable about them. Decent binocs start around $500 and go as high as you want to go.

RE: Running CPAP Without Utilities

A motorcycle battery will work. A friend brought his CPAP on a week long canoe trip.

RE: How will my new F350 behave in cold temps?

You have glow plugs for sure. You can do a couple of things to make it easier on your truck. Use synthetic oil of the right viscosity. YOu can use a dip stick heater plugged into the house with 120. Use a fuel additive like the white can sold at any truck stop. Then you are good to below zero. If it is cold enough to find No 1 diesel at fuel stations, use it.

RE: Traveling in the winter with a TT

Pulling a trailer is fine in the winter, unless there is snow and ice on the road, unless there is a ground blizzard, or until the roads are closed.

RE: Coffee maker off inverter and battery in a truck camper

Or use propane and skip the whole process. It also heats up the rig as an added bonus.

RE: inexpensive panels

Forget used panels. forget cheap panels and controllers. Then you just have to buy more of them.

RE: 2021 Fall trip MI to Rushmore then AZ

It can snow in the NOrthern PLains anytime after Labor Day. Just keep that in mind.

RE: Camper Security

YOu need a security system when you are not there or someone to look after your rig. I like 3 dogs and a heater for when I am there.

RE: New Years camping.

My best New Years trip was backpacking in Big Bend National Park. I went with some geologists so we never hiked on trails and just went from spring to spring. New Years Eve we played charades with shadows by lantern light reflected on a large rock outcrop.

RE: February trip south on the East Coast

Planning a trip ahead of time has some risk. I have been in Atlanta when the high was 18 degrees with high winds. Driving a motorhome in the snow is not good. Time your trip in the weather openings. Postpone it if you have to.

RE: Newbie Question About Tie Downs

For larger campers, and longer trips you want tie downs that bolt to the frame.

RE: Best and worst routes across the Mountains ?

The way to become a seasoned and experienced driver of RVs is to go everywhere. Take it one step at a time. Build your skills and watch your gauges. Know when to pull over and idle your engine and let your brakes cool off. I don't get the concept of avoiding all the roads that aren't "easy." Some people should probably stay out of the mountains.

RE: low coolant / add water?

If you are not driving it, hardly matters. If you are 50/50 water/AF and you don't live in the Yukon you can add some straight water.

RE: RV Furnace Intermittently Works

RV furnaces have some odd valves and systems that can get dirt in them and fail to function. Not like residential at all. When I get frustrated, I call a mobile RV tech that can go right to the problem in 10 minutes. They don't cost that much. Saves a lot of aggravation.

RE: Antifreeze no longer pink

Antifreeze is cheap. Replace it and try some new.
