RE: Propane tank

A full tank lasts a good long time if you don't use the furnace (or generator, if you have a propane fueled generator), a number of weeks in my case. Agreed - even in the BBQ case. I've had a 5 gallon tank last a whole season, and that included running the BBQ long after the food was cooked to burn off the mess. For sure, trailer usage is more demanding, but I still find propane capacity to last more than a week. Where I've gotten into trouble is/was leaving the propane on during storage and underestimating the fridge usage while stored.

RE: Carelessness strikes again

...being of the packrat tribe I had saved a bolt from the the last time, in my bolt box... That is always a good feeling.

RE: Buying land for camping...

Honestly, pouring a relatively modest amount of money into your RV for increased battery capacity, inverter capacity, solar, and lots of fresh/waste water capacity is pretty attainable for most people, and then your options for boondocking are practically unlimited. Agreed. After looking at parcels, this is pretty much what I came up with.

RE: Buying land for camping...

This was a dream of mine for years. I investigated several properties. I wanted mimmick my friend's set up on 40 acres nearby. Ultimately it turned out to be a trade off between the following: cost, location variety, effort to add amenities. At I've gotten older the effort to set up water, power, etc overcame my interest.

RE: Another Oldie Not Mine

They should have focused the attention on the interior. That's what I was thinking until the inside photos started showing up. I am not an expert on these trailers, but something looks wrong to me. Some dull exterior panels, some polished. The interior looks too good to be true.

RE: Perseid meteor shower

Hoping to see Perseids. We live north of San Francisco in a pretty dark location. The best viewing is after midnight as the Earth is then facing into the path of the shower. I am not sure why, but the Perseids tend to "fizz". By that I mean the tail of some of the shooting stars leave a trail that has a wider than normal path with a scattered pattern. http://www.winecountrystarparty.com/images/IMG_0019c.jpg width=600

RE: Leaving dog at campsite

It doesn't take much to be smarter than the average dog. In my sixty two years of experience the same can be said of the average human. Agreed - I am 62 also. :B

RE: Checking on Wheel Bearing Heat

I was wondering how many of you check your hubs for overheating when you stop and get gas or pit stops. Off and on I touch the tires and wheels. It would make sense for me to do that every stop.

RE: Sanitizing water system

Oh my goodness. I was asking if people AVOID treating the hot water heater. To be honest, sorry I asked. Hang in there. This forum can be difficult. Try to imagine responses being offered supportively, even though some of us can be cranky.

RE: Sanitizing water system

Guy’s... He was just asking about the water heater! How/why would someone want to isolate treating just the hot water heater?

RE: Pay showers?

We went on a canoe trip years ago and tent camped there before we got an RV. It had pay showers that were a quarter for 4-5 minutes. They were converted car wash controls and had wash , rinse and wax! We got quite a few laughs out of that. And a foaming brush? :)

RE: Leaving dog at campsite

I've watched dog owners pause and listen for barking as they leave, and their dog does not bark until 10 minutes after they're gone.

RE: I don't think it will start

It might need a jump and some starting fluid.

RE: People sure are getting petty with their park reviews

I agree with these posts. The thing I have to admit is that I usually read the one star reviews first. It's like I want to hear the BS, even though I know better.

RE: Generator Problem

On a trip last week we were running the generator to run the ac while on the road. The generator would start without any problem and the ac would run fine. Then after 30 min. or so the generator would shut off. Anybody have an idea what would cause this. Thanks in advance. Mine shuts off as you describe when I fail to open the vent on the fuel cap.

RE: 100 watt Solar decision

I never thought of auto parts store having them I problem I've had asking about batteries at an auto part store is, they ask you what make and model of vehicle you have. They are geared toward fitting the battery in a vehicle, not RV electrical storage.

RE: 100 watt Solar decision

...unless you can recharge the batteries to full charge state every day you'll probably notice less and less battery power after a few days... So true

RE: 100 watt Solar decision

What kind of batteries do you have? That should be the next big question.
