RE: Traveling in 23 ft trailer with cat

I've been full-timing with my cat for over 6 years now. I use a harness from Crazy K Farms- the yellow reflective one. Coupled with a retractable style leash, it allows the cat to spend lots of time outside with me. You won't be able to walk a cat like a dog, but cats like to explore. Just be prepared for those periods when he'll just sit and look around. I bring my Paperwhite.

RE: Oil rubbed bronze Handheld Showerhead

I went to the link provided for the cheapo showerhead and see that it's the one I bought in 8/17. Still going strong and I full-time, so can recommend it. Not sure how it compares to water usage compared to the oxygenics, though.

RE: summer in a national forest

Wow. Where do I start? I just wanted to let people be aware of our hiring. Many workampers are looking for jobs. I believe this one is a fairly high paying gig. I wasn't aware that I had to list all of the Covid precautions we are taking. But we are in accordance with the AZ health dept. restaurant guidelines. In addition, kitchen staff doesn't even come in contact with customers. Also, I don't understand how the thread got to a discussion of vaccines. That appears to be against this forums rules. And as far as my handle bothering people- are you kidding me? I joined in 2010- that's ten years ago. At that time, I was hoping to retire in Paris. It didn't happen. I didn't bother to change my forum name because, who in the world would care? For someone to read something ominous and un-American into that is ridiculous. And as executive chef, it falls on me to do the hiring. Anyway, I am trying to get the mods to delete this post. I apologize for offending all of you, but, again, I just thought people would want to know about a good paying job for workampers, in the workamper forum. My bad.

RE: Toad or No Toad ?- Grand Canyon road trip in a 23' class A

Can't answer your question but I'm very jealous of a Grand Canyon trip in a restored GMC!

summer in a national forest

Are you a van dweller? Own an RV? Needed a reason to get one? Spend the summer in the cool mountains of northern Arizona! We’re hiring two to three people (couple or singles) to work in the newly remodeled kitchen of our BBQ & pizza restaurant. Start as early as March, stay as long as 12/15 (possibly year-round, if that’s what you want). Will train. You get a full hook-up site, shift meal, and pay for all hours worked. We pay all cooks $20 an hour plus a share of the tips. During the season, we’ll be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner 7 days a week, so your work hours are flexible. Looking for those who can work 30-40 hours per week. With a brand new menu, new equipment, and new chef, come work at Happy Jack Lodge in the Coconino National Forest, 40 minutes south of Flagstaff. Near Sedona, the Grand Canyon, and less than two hours from Phoenix. Hunt elk, deer and turkey. Fishing nearby. Fantastic hiking at the Mongollan Rim. The new menu is designed to be as easy to serve as possible. Because of the Covid restrictions, we serve to-go only and will be continuing that even after the crisis is over. My name is John and I am the new executive chef. I’m at the Imperial Dam LTVA until late February, so send me a PM if you are interested and I’ll answer all your questions. I'm doing the hiring, so please do not call the Lodge. They'll just tell you to contact me.

RE: Smallest RV anyone has full timed in?

3 years full time in a 10' Apache hard sided pop up. Would not recommend.

RE: inexpensive panels

I bought a 350 watt panel and a 25' cord extension from them. Powers my Bluetti AC200 wonderfully. I found them knowledgeable about their products. Took a drive from Imperial dam LTVA to get it- worth it.

Sleeping in my hybrid takes me back to sleeping on the porch during the summer at the cottage in the Thousand Islands. I full-time in one (for 3 years now- before that in a pop-up)and haven't seen any leak/maintenance issues that would be attributable to the hybrid form.

RE: Pulling Travel Trailer in Colorado with Tahoe

Also, I got a Bluetooth OBD reader that plugs into the port. I use an old phone (cracked screen) to display a gauge set including trans temp. Cheap way to have a full gauge set.

RE: Pulling Travel Trailer in Colorado with Tahoe

I've got almost the same set-up: '02 Yukon XL, same engine & rear, and a hybrid trailer. I haven't been over 8000' yet, mostly northern NM & AZ. It pulls fine but steeper grades will be done at very slow speeds.

RE: Trailer brake advice

I've been using the Curt Bluetooth since 10/19 and I am a full-timer. Works flawlessly. If you were to lose signal, it still works your brakes at the last setting you used.

modernizing older hybrid

I have an '02 Thor 18DT. I really only use the front bed. It's not a huge pain to set up but I was wondering about modernizing two areas: 1) Replace the rods underneath that hold up the bed. What if I attached cables from the bed corners to the camper body? 2) The vinyl has snaps on the leading edge and then uses bungee cords to attach the sides to each other under the bed base. What if I screwed the 3 sides to the bed base, making it permanently attached? With those mods, all I would have to do is release the clamps, drop the bed down, and put in the top metal rod that holds up the vinyl.

RE: Blue Tooth Electric Brake controller

I'e been using it since 10/19. Works great. I use an old phone that has a broken screen. Attach it with a vent mount. If you lose connection (I don't remember that happening yet), the system still works the brakes using the settings you plugged in.

Replacing stovetop

I full time and have a Magic Chef stove/oven. Hate the oven and only use my Breville electric toaster oven. So I pulled out the Magic Chef, installed the Breville, and am going to add a new stove top unit. This unit will fit: It looks like a simple install. Just wondering if anyone has an opinion or suggestion before ordering it.

RE: Filtering water for my travel trailer

We use the blue torpedo at the campground spigot and a Zero Water counter top pitcher. Same here. I’m spending the summer in the NM southern mountains. I put an ice cube in a glass of bourbon. When I got near the bottom, I noticed particles floating on the bottom. The Zero Water comes with a TDS monitor. The water here was off the chart- over 600! Made my coffee taste bad, too. After the Zero, the water tested at zero. Much better tasting. But the filters don’t last long with water like this.

RE: Securing cable outside trailer

Do you have a front molded cap? On mine it is wide open behind that cap. I's a hybrid, so has the fold-out bed in front.

RE: Securing cable outside trailer

Sorry. I want to attach the cable to the vertical front of the trailer, down to the battery on the tongue.

Securing cable outside trailer

I’m adding a solar panel and want to run the wire to the controller along the exterior of the trailer. I’m looking for suggestions to secure the wire.
