RE: Keeping cool

My solution is to head to the mountains.

RE: Campspreading

My brother taught me to swear in Hungarian. A loud voice and some arm waving usually works. A couple of years ago I was backpacking in the Sierras. Some clown walks right through our camp to get to the lake to pump some water. I was speechless. He came back the same way. I asked him "what are you doing walking through our camp?" He looked at me like a dog. "What do you mean?" he replied. I asked him to kindly walk around our camp next time. He said Okay like it was a brand new idea. People are not only inconsiderate, some of them are really stupid. Try to have patience with the dumb ones.

RE: No Spare tire correct

Relying on phone service and someone coming to help you is going to get you into some serious trouble. Avoid the State of Nevada for instance.

RE: No Spare tire correct

Many cars today have run flat tires and no spare. This is common with sports cars. Just buy a spare tire and wheel and a jack. No big deal.

RE: Campspreading

No. But once in Montana a whole colony of Mennonites showed up in really old RVs and took over the place. They were odd but pretty quiet.

RE: Disconnect load before stopping generator?

Learn to be easy on machinery. Shut down the load. Let the machine idle and cool off. This works for truck engines, generators, etc. It is very important with solar controllers to shut them down in the right order for instance. Never disconnect from the battery side with power coming from your solar panels.

RE: 2019 Roush Super Duty

Hot rodding trucks is no more difficult than doing the same to a car. There are a ton of after market upgrades available now. There are 1,000 horse power diesels around. Just be careful that you do not overwhelm some of the old parts with the new parts.

RE: Buying out of state

Call the Californai Air Resources Board (CARB) and ask them about smog regs.

RE: 2019 Cross country RV trip planning

I don't get the concept of maybe just enough truck. when you get to the Rockies you will wish you were towing with something else.

RE: Does anyone make 'em anymore?

How about a nice tent with a cot? I like a wall tent with a wood stove best or a 16 foot tipi.

RE: Coffee on the road

You can take long guns to Canada. Taking a hand gun is not easy.

RE: Does anyone make 'em anymore?

I used to have a hybrid trailer. I took it out in cold weather and slept in it closed up. I left the anti-freeze in place. I used the stove and that was it. I used a portable propane heater. You can easily ignore the modern gadgets if you want to.

RE: Solar Charging

Your controller is only 10 amps. What size is your solar panel? You can easily add a fuse block that is resetable between the batteries and the controller. It functions like a disconnect. You controller is currently over charging your batteries.

RE: Montrose to Ouray

There are more difficult highways in Colorado than any other state.

Try a tear drop.

RE: Coffee on the road

Amyone shooting varmints with a Sharps would have to be a fool. I have never heard of a .52 cal but that would be a huge cartridge. The biggest normal buffalo caliber was the Big Fifty. I have a .45-100 that smacks me pretty good in the shoulder.

RE: Should I get a 2020 GM 3500 DRW or a 4500?

Ditto 4x4ord.

RE: 100 amp service

100 amp service is common for a residence, but rare for a MH.

RE: Rocky Mountains camping

I used to live in Colorado and went to RMNP once. Too crowded. There are so many great places in the state to wander around in.

RE: 4WD or 2WD

Some people seem to think a 2wd gas powered tow vehicle with a Class II hitch is just the ticket. Good luck to all of them.
