RE: Remote measurement of fridge and freezer temperatures

Look into the YoLink systems. I don't monitor the temps in our residential fridge (it has digital readouts on it), but I monitor the temp in the basement, have water leak sensors in various places, and a power failure alarm that turns of some smart power strips so unneeded things don't drain the batteries (via the inverter) when just on batteries and solar. YoLink on Amazon Rob

RE: Military Campgrounds

Not true. You would have to have a VA medical card - a DD-214 alone doesn't give you any privileges. You can find out the requirements for any and all military campgrounds here: Use is per local commander's option, so it can vary from one installation to another. For the most part, authorized users include Active Duty, National Guard, Reservists, Retired Military, 0-100% DAV, Purple Heart Recipients, Former POW, Veteran Caregivers, DoD Civilians, Sponsored Guests.

RE: How do you measure the ambient temperature?

Of what? As far as the atmosphere (air) around our rig, I have a personal weather station on a pole on the ladder. A less expensive alternative would be one of the wireless indoor/outdoor thermometers. Inside the rig there is the monitoring station for the PWS which gives inside temp as well as the thermometers and temp displays on both thermostats. Rob

RE: Viscount the "Jayco" of Australia

You folks sure do like ground clearance down under! Terry built a pretty good unit in the '50s - '70s in the US. My grandparent had one that might still be in use had my grandmother not fishtailed and rolled the truck and trailer... Rob

RE: Beech Lane/Anderson levelers

Beech-Lane all the way. We had three of the Anderson levelers break before switching to Beech-Lane... never had one break after that (14K fifth wheel). We found the LevelMatePRO to be extremely helpful when using any kind of leveler, too. Rob

RE: Would You Caulk This Shower Tub?

I would not - and here's the reason. The lip at the bottom of the shower surround indicates that it overlaps an outer lip on the bottom portion. This allows any condensation between the liner and whatever surface it's mounted on to drain out. Sealing it would seal in any moisture that's there. If it had been sealed when constructed and perfectly dry, that would be another thing - but not now after use. Other's may have differing opinions. Rob

RE: Travel trailer blueprint

The RV industry does not believe in schematics. For motorhomes, you can get schematics for the engine and chassis from the chassis manufacturer, but not for the "house" part of the coach. Rob

RE: Route 66

There isn't much left of the old Route 66 (which my grandparents traveled with me a lot when I was a kid). The Interstate highways cover a good part of the old route. The parts that are left often go through sleepy little towns - or ghost towns - that died when the highways went througn and/or bypassed them. The are still things to see besides Oatman (and the route through there isn't doable in anything larger than a class B) if you're willing to make side trips and spend time... but it ain't what it used to be.

RE: Shadow Cruiser 259bhs tounge weight

The advertized tongue weights are close to useless - empty, nothing on board. For travel trailers, a good estimate of a loaded tongue weight is to calculate 12 - 13% of the trailer's GVWR. Weights are also a function of the design and materials used for the build, too - not the length of the trailer. Rob

RE: Tire Pressure?

On what was the "young tire tech" basing his recommendations - the max PSI on the side of the tire for load range E tires? The folks who built your RV know more about the requirements than would this young tire tech. Are you seeing any signs of underinflation? If it were me, and in the absence of abnormal wear, I'd stick with the door sticker. Rob

RE: Hardeeville SC to Columbia SC

It's not SC 321, it's a US Highway - US 321. Good road. Rob

RE: Unusual Rental Motorhomes

Those are nice. Some friends of ours here in the States had one made-to-order last year. Folks argue over whether to call them Cs or Super Bs... I guess it doesn't really matter as long as they serve the purpose. Rob

RE: Walmart overnight parking

Parking at Walmart is a store-by-store situation depending on local ordinances and other factors. There used to be a guide floating around the internet about which stores allowed in and which don't. Do some searching and you might be able to find it (if it's been kept up-to-date). Rob

RE: Deming New Mexico to Albuquerque on hwy 26?

Deming to Hatch (I-25) via HWY 26 should be no problem. It's a good 2-lane road with no grades. Escapees use it all the time leaving the Escapees park in Deming. The only problem is that you'll pass up the best southwestern food in the country by missing Las Cruces... Rob

RE: Question for TEXANS- Class A non CDL

Drove a F350 / 5th wheel combo that was well past the 26,000 mark for about 7 years based in Ewe-stun. Blissfully ignorant for the first 6 years, planning for coming back to AK in year 7, so never got the Class A Non-Commercial, but that was what was required. Never stopped nor ticketed nor in a wreck. Not necessarily true in the US. Rob

RE: Question for TEXANS- Class A non CDL

It a class B non CDL. It's a simple process and easy test so don't put it off. I'm not even sure it cost much, if anything. The problem is not getting stopped, it's what happens with your insurance coverage when you have an accident and you don't have the proper license. Class B Non-Commercial Exempt is for motorohomes towing a tow'd less than 10,000 lbs. A truck/trailer combo over 26K requires a Class A. OP - I have a Class A Non-Commercial Exempt but have never been stopped. There are examples of people involved in accidents being ticketed for driving without a license since they don't have the license required for the rig they're operating. Rob

RE: Ft. Meade Vs. Ft. Belvoir Campground

I know this isn't what you asked, but we usually stay at JB Andrews and take the train into downtown from just outside the gate. No hassle or parking issues in town that way. Rob

RE: 12 ft garage and 36' max length

The Momentum 315G has a garage that's 15-3 full-width and 19-4 minus the depth of the kithen counter. It's 36'5" long with a GVWR of 16,400. Of course, with this configuration, you're giving up 1/3 or more of the trailer to garage. Momentum 315G Rob Thanks. Any thoughts on having the rzr in the living quarters? Any gas smells? Sorry - don't know anything about ATV world. Rob
