RE: LP oven/cook top or convection microwave?

As a full timer I can go a year using the range top and oven on a tank of propane. We are self contained micro is nice but we could get by without it but not the range.

RE: Commode question

Step 1: enter potty room Step 2: lift potty lid Step 3: depress foot pedal till water fills bowl approximately 1/3 Step 4: drop drawers do business Step 5: finish with paper work Step 6: pull em up Step 7: step firmly on potty pedal Step 8: lower potty lid Step 9: exit Even when connected to sewer BLACK TANK valve should be closed till tank is full. Failure to do so will eventually produce the dreaded pyramid of poo.

RE: Many of us have run into this when volunteering

We've done 7 volunteer positions in the last 4 years three of then twice and have been asked back to all. Our opinion is that two terms are enough as we want to travel and experience the country east, west, north, south. We recently visited another couple that has been bouncing between two parks winter-summer, north-south for a half dozen years, the wife confided that when they went full time she thought they were going to see the USA not the same two areas year after year. Why were they just doing two locations, the managers kept asking them back. Keep moving, your good resume and good words from former VC's will keep you in positions and areas you want to explore.

RE: Awning LIghts

Don't want awning lights they take too much time to remove if the wind picks up.

RE: GCT Carbon Fiber RV

After they produce one and probably only one.....do they really think anybody would even consider buying it?? What are some these idiots thinking? B.O. A fool and his money are soon parted. No lack of fools in this world.

RE: Inflating 110PSI Tires

Just because the MAX is 110psi doesn't mean that's what they need to be inflated to. Weigh the unit and THEN inflate the tires according to the mfgrs chart for the weight. In order to do that you need to weigh each tire not the total. Tires on the same axle must then inflated to the weigh spec for the greater of the two.

RE: Biodiesel being used

I understand some states require a minimum amount of biodiesel in the fuel sold within that state.. Some states it is 10% and in some it is 20%. I don't like to use it but many times have no option if I want diesel Since you have that information would you please share which states those are.

RE: Deisel vs. Gasoline

We fulltime, 4 years, DW follows in a Focus. We volunteer and generally stay parked 3 to six months. Just had a oil change and fuel filter change today. Service writer couldn't believe there was only 24,000 on an "09" F350 DRW. I have talked to those with gas haulers and wonder whether I should have gone gas myself. We don't have a exhaust brake but Tow/haul trans works on gas engines as well. If OP plans on south of the border, how is the DEF supply down there?

RE: Replacement 46" tub wall surround- where to find?

I had a leaky roof and wet wood behind my shower walls. When I removed the wall surround it ripped. For the life of me I cannot find a replacement wall surround. Does anyone know any place I might find a replacement? It is a 46" wide tub surround. I can find 30", 36" and 40", but no 46" wall kits. Look for 60" that can be cut to fit.

RE: Pet Licensing?

Any local vet can do a health check and vaccinations and generally a part of the fee is for state rabies tag. Before "Butch" went to the rainbow bridge that was all we ever needed as camphosts or other volunteer locations requesting that proof of vaccination.

RE: 30 amp vs 50 amp campsite ???

Actually I think I was confused (I'm "Wife" and not the "CarpFisherman" so I can play dumb). Our TT is a 30 amp so we can never run 50 amp but we have a connector in case we can only find a 50 amp site and have to convert it down to 30 amp right? So in looking back not sure why the rep said we may need 50 amp to run AC and microwave at same time because we cannot put 50 amps in a 30 amp TT. Do most of you use a surge protector? So much for salesman's knowledge.

RE: GPS, Atlas, Mapquest and More....

I don't trust the GPS, not saying they are no good but they are not perfect and can lead you wrong, BTDT, so I use maps. You should check your route on a new atlas as roads do change with construction. You can also check state DOT websites for current construction and alternate routes. I do turn the GPS on when near to route changes to better prepare to be in the right lane for merging also good for city driving looking for attractions. If your using a smart phone most of the things you mentioned finding can be located with your apps, or at a new location check out trip adviser or local govt sites for dog parks or whatever.

RE: Full Time Packing List?

I sort of assumed the OP was going to stay in an inhabited area where they could drop by a walmart and get more band aids if needed? bumpy Yeah but you need some in the RV. When I cut myself I don't want to drive to Walmart to buy a band aid. I want it RIGHT NOW. Skip the band aids, duct tape and a small square of paper towel will work. Unless you want the ones with stars.

RE: Ford Dually pressure check?

I found that a straight air chuck works best on the inside tires.
