RE: If you can't decide if you want an RV or a boat

At best an RV is a collection of compromises with wheels. At best a boat is a bunch of compromises that float. Combined the result does not do anything well except suck up money.

RE: US101 Northern California

Came through the area a couple days ago. South to north. Got lucky. Minor delay. Currently in Crescent City. Hearing of delays up to 4 hours. We saw SB line that had to be 2 miles long.

RE: Peeling Decals. What to do.

Ya, it is the labour. Took my front cap decal off with a combo hair dryer & chemicals to get glue residue. Took it to the sign maker. One hour later the new decal, a blown up picture that we had taken, was on. Excellent quality material. Four years later it looks like just applied.

RE: Heading west?

We are in the middle of a four month trip to the west coast out of MD. Feeling rushed for time already.

RE: Renting questions before buying

Mr Andy, your friend needs to trade in the wife. There does not seem to be much trade in value but cut the losses

RE: I hate roundabouts -- but maybe I am wrong

The US has not gotten the idea of how to build roundabouts yet. Most are way too small & most drivers don't have any clue of how to use them. In England they know how to build them & drivers know how to use them. Generally they are much larger multiple lane affairs. Drivers actually use signal lights to let others know their intentions. The signage is much better too

RE: Colorado Campgrounds

We are currently sitting at the United CG next to the narrow gauge RR 4 miles N of Durango These folks have stepped way out of their way to accommodate us after we showed up with an issue making our 5er very difficult to move. We are on an indefinite layover as we wait for parts. Nice CG with plenty of trees to give shade during current heat. Great views across the valley.

RE: Turning a FW around in a Culdesac

Got a neighbours driveway that can be put to use in breaking down that 180' turn?

RE: Back before cellphones

I don't know how people enjoyed the RVing lifestyle before cellphones. How did you do the research required for multi month trips involving thousands of miles with all of the complications of weather delays & mechanical issues thrown into the mix? Today is easy. The basic route is plotted out. CGs are found on the fly, usually making a same day reservation a few hours from the destination.

RE: Generators!! Yes YOU!

Common sense courtesy rules regarding genny noise are there for those who have no common sense or courtesy.

RE: Generators!! Yes YOU!

As I type sitting in a marginal phone area & nearly empty NF CG my Honda 2000 hums away at a little above idle as it recharges the battery bank that was depleted some since last evening by the inverter. As only an occasional dry camper there is no justification for solar when less than 5 gallons of gas is burned each year. I like quiet too. Few things annoy me more than a genny being run for hours uneccessarily. Get an inverter for that C PAP machine. If you really must have A/C go to a CG with power.

RE: best route to/from Waterton, AB canada

There really are not many roads to choose from, if any choices at all, in that area. You plug in wherever the destination is on whatever navigation system you use & that is the way you are going. Any alternates will be miles longer.

RE: Overnight camping in Delaware

All private CGs on the DELMARVA are foully expensive. Best shot at an overnight is Killens Pond & make it a Sunday thru Thursday night.

RE: British couple buying an RV in the US

OP gets solid advice from one who has done it then disappears. You are welcome.

RE: British couple buying an RV in the US

As you can see from all of the responses it is not simple. While it is nice of the friend to offer his address for you, having a rig resistered at his address that is not even owned by a US citizen could create problems for him with the IRS. Many non US citizens create a LLC hosted in a state such as Montana. Easy to set up. No sales tax in Montana. No annual vehicle inspection. All done over the phone. Your company owns the vehicle. The address of the host office is used for registration. Keep the vehicle wherever you like.

RE: Cost of RVing

There are so many variables. The fact is, most of us are not doing hundreds of miles a day, let alone 500 mile marathons. Most of us are not eating in restaurants 3-4 times a week. Many of us do not need FHU sites in CGs with 'resort' tacked on to the name to boot up the price. Most of us are not rolling around in a RV that costs as much as a house. Keeping it simple makes long trips at a reasonable cost possible.

RE: Whoops, I did it again.

Not surprised at answers. Fixable but at what price? It is not the price of the parts but the labour of the tech. Still have it & will remove cover to see if there is anything very obvious or to reset. There is some life. It can be turned on but the overload light is on. No 120VAC though. Bought a new one, 1000W pure SW, & wired it idiot proof. Needs to be plugged into the ATS & there are very specific instructions on circuits that need to be OFF at the breaker panel first. The only circuits left live are the two for the outlets. TVs & phone chargers don't need much.

Whoops, I did it again.

I fried an almost new inverter. A not so cheap Samlex 1500W Pure Sine Wave inverter. Back fed 120VAC into it & BANG! What made me hit that switch when shore power was present? Did the same thing to my boat inverter about 20 years ago. Slow learner. Where's my sign? Not being a techy guy, obviously, is it worth getting repaired or should it be used as a boat anchor?
