RE: Quartzite?

If you are asking about the "Big Tent" show, it is scheduled for January 22 - 30th. I wouldn't call it a show with all manufacturers; more like a state fair with an RV emphasis.

RE: Plans for winter camping?

I've just started my plans for winter camping. Left upstate NY on October 21, and will make a slow (with many stops) trip to the Long Term Visitor Areas in Quartzsite, AZ. I skipped last year, but have done the trip for the previous 5 years. The best way to winterize your trailer possible! 2021 - 2022 Trip To The Southwest

RE: Suggestions for new wall mount stereo

2X on Crutchfield. They have filters that let you input your requirements, then list the available receivers.

RE: Biden to restore 3 national monuments cut by Trump

Link Fixed. And they used a terrible photo of House on Fire. Here is one from my last visit: http://lakeshoreimages.com/19trip/images1916/_JV24646.jpg width=640

RE: Can now run the A/C while boondocking

Another advantage of the Micro Air Easy Start is it eliminated the "thump" when the compressor starts. The thump is what stalls smaller generators, but in a small trailer it is an annoying noise. Glad to "hear" it is gone!

I haven't stayed at the resort, but had a great experience at Cheyenne Mountain State Park in Colorado Springs.

RE: Wyoming Vacation June-July 2022

Devil's Tower is worth a stop. There is a KOA at the entrance that has hook up sites that have a view of the tower. In the park is a dry campground (I don't know if you would fit) and great nighttime views.

No cancelations due to fires, but I got a email from Texas State Parks canceling my November reservation because of a hunt. No problem with refunds...

RE: Campgrounds that are open all year

If you use the AllStays Camp & RV app, it has a filter for campgrounds that are open year round.

RE: General Sherman Giant Tree

Jon, it's true that you can see a big tree from the parking lot -- and for folks who can't walk well, that's a good alternative. But speaking as someone who has spent a lot of time wandering around the Sequoias, there is nothing like a hike to a "non-parking-lot" grove, away from the crowds, and just hanging out and listening to the silence, surrounded by 2000 year old trees, among the largest living things on the planet. I completely agree. I just wanted to point out that the "mist" that contributes to the size & life of these trees can sometimes make it impossible to see them. If you want the full effect of the size of them, you need a clear day.

RE: Dometic freezer not working? Just old?

While any refrigerator can "grow old", absorption refrigerators can last many years. I have a friend that has a cabin with a 1954 kerosene fired absorption refrigerator that is still going strong.

RE: General Sherman Giant Tree

If you are planning a day trip to see the tree, check the weather. The day we went the fog was so thick a ranger at the parking lot told us that we would barely be able to see the base of the tree, let alone the entire thing. There are plenty of tall trees at the parking lot: https://lakeshoreimages.com/images101/ASC_9171.jpg height=480 A 1950 family photo of the Wawona Tree in Mariposa Grove: https://lakeshoreimages.com/images43/img097.jpg height=480

RE: Route 281 Trail of the Ancients in Utah

Two neat ruins in the area are Fallen Roof Ruin & House on Fire: Fallen Roof Ruin off of Cigarette Springs Road which is off UT261 on the North side of the Dugway. https://lakeshoreimages.com/images377/_DSC2332.jpg width=640 House on Fire off UT 95 https://www.lakeshoreimages.com/images169/ASD_0133.jpg height=480 Directions to both are all over the internet - House on fire is an easy one mile hike, Fallen roof ruin is shorter, but a bit more difficult.

RE: Route 281 Trail of the Ancients in Utah

Did some more research! The 11% grade is unpaved switchbacks. Will take 95 east then 191 to 163. Heading to Monument Valley. There is a bridge closure on UT 95 9 miles west of Blanding that will make this route unavailable until at least October. Link

RE: 50 to 30 amp dog bone

While I only carry one 50 to 30 amp adapter, I know of individuals that carry 2, each with the 30 amp side wired to a different leg of the 50 amp side. They check to see which side provides higher voltage. While both the 50 amp & 30 amp receptacles are connected to the same wiring to the pedestal, depending on how well the campground planed the balancing of the 30 amp receptacles throughout the park, one leg may well have a higher load lower voltage), particularly if there are mostly 30 amp users.

RE: Replacing 50A Electric Cord

All the RV power cords I've seen are S, not SJ rated. In any case, look for rubber or SE--- designations. Cheaper cord will be thermoplastic (ST--), stiff in cold weather. Rubber & elastomer (the E) are much more flexible. For example SEOOW is a good choice. Stay away from STOW and the like...
