RE: exchanging propane cylinder that came with TT

I bought 2 new tanks at Costco with the gauges. I had 2 other tanks and one of them "developed" a dent so Costco wouldn't fill it. So off to the local hardware store for a no questions exchange. BTW...here in Ontario individuals MUST be licensed to operate a propane filling machine.

RE: Voice Controlled Travel Trailer

Remember when we went camping to get away from it all? For the win!

RE: Loud Water Pump

I can hear mine...and maybe it's loud. Dunno. Doesn't bother me. I like the idea of hearing it just in case there is a leak or a tap wasn't shut off properly.

RE: 30 Days Straight

Dad's been out of the hospital now for 2 weeks. I put him at 65%. His personality changed after spending most of the summer in a hospital....but he is slowly coming back. I have 4 more days to camp before I wrap it up for the season. That puts me at 58 days for 2019....all boondocking. 2020 will probably be close to 120 days (boondocking) as I will be building a new house at the lake. Occupancy hopefully mid September.

RE: wood weight

I have a small business that builds shipping crates. I keep all the cut offs and store them in Rubbermaid totes. 4x4s, 2x6s 2x4s...that sort of thing. Kiln dried....no park can refuse, theoretically. I usually burn 1.5 totes a night. Easy to pack in the bed of a truck....and if I need more for longer stays I might throw one or 2 in the TT. Each tote probably weighs 50 Lbs.

RE: Check Your Battery(s)

Yeah, they are a real PITA to access. Behind the propane tanks, remove some straps in a space barely large enough for my fingers to fit, snap open the box lids with a long screwdriver, just to see the top of the batteries. I try to check them at every propane refill, but sometimes I say heck with it and I'll check them later. Then usually don't. During our last trip I noticed they went from full charge to 50% in one night with the heater on. So I checked and they were thirsty. They are four year old batteries, so it may be time to replace. Jeez......I almost thought I wrote what you wrote. Exact same story. Except that my batteries are still holding a charge.

Check Your Battery(s)

It's been a hot summer and I've gotten some use out of the PortaNobby. I had to get both LP tanks refilled and since my batteries are hidden down below the tanks I thought I'd take a look. 2 - 6V wet batteries were THIRSTY. Fluid was still covering the top of the plates, but barely. I added 1.5 litres total between the 2 batteries. I seem to remember checking them BEFORE last season started. My bad. There is a moral to this story.

RE: 30 Days Straight

Thanks for the well wishes. Dad just at his first meal in 2 months today. All soft stuff....but it's going down the esophagus!

RE: 30 Days Straight

RE: Winter Storage of a Travel Trailer?????

We have major RV dealers all around here and none of them cover their stock in the winter either. Why would they? It's not like they are going to own those same trailers 10-15 years from now. NOT covering will not kill a trailer after 1 or 2 seasons....but it won't last as long as a covered one.

RE: 30 Days Straight

Bitter-sweet experience for sure. Hope your dad is ok now. Beautiful spot. I ran out of vacation time. Sister took over the day I left. Then I'm back for my 5 days off. He's now moving in the uphill direction. Hopefully he'll be out in less than 2 weeks. Thanks. :)

RE: Winter Storage of a Travel Trailer?????

I am hard on my TT when I use it....but I pay for indoor winter storage....treat it like the princess every trailer is. Pretty sure that will extend the life.

30 Days Straight

I planned on 7 days...ended up staying 30. Oops. Dad is in the hospital in Montreal. I live north of Toronto...but I own a piece of lake front north of Montreal. So the idea was to go camp on the land...do a little clearing and visit Dad. Dad got bad. Then he got worse. So I ended up commuting to and from the hospital....about 75 minutes one way. But that was not my problem. I needed to find a dump site after 8 days as I was taking everything for granted. Found a spot for $23 to dump and get water and then made it 22 days non stop. Didn't want to have to move again. But man.... I was full. And water was almost gone. And I was boon docking....no power. Lived on 2 40W solar panels and 30 lbs of LP along with 6 camping cans of LP. The day I left...I was empty. You certainly learn to conserve when you need to. All in all...I loved it. Wife came once to visit and replenished my clothes shortage. https://i.imgur.com/m2H1eybl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/uFv5dUbl.jpg

RE: this is neet (not mine)

4 years ago I might have considered this trailer. Cool looking....at least from my current vantage point. LOL.

Another Successful De-Winterizing

What's this? My fourth year already with my 2010 (2008) Pacific Coachworks Tango? All appliances running on propane and fridge running on both shore power and propane. Javexed the fresh water tank and flushed the lines. No leaks. Score one for The Nob! Alas....my day will come. First camping May 10 for 3 nights at Killbear.

RE: Camping @ ROXODUS 2019

RE: Hitch locks

In fact, I run a chain through a tire rim and around the axle springs (only when stored, haha). I always keep 2 on the hitch, 1 on receiver pin and 1 on the ball, even when traveling. SAME.

RE: Attack of the Blob!

This sounds like it could work, but is it safe for a potable water system? Safer than that green s**t growing in your tank..LOL. Drain... fill with water....take it on another drive, drain, fill, drain. They put it in pools that people swim in....so if you're fully rinced there should be no problem. Anyways, I always bring a 5 gallon jug of water from home for drinking.

RE: Attack of the Blob!

Before replacing the tank, I would try some pool shock treatment first. That is meant to get rid of almost all algae and bacteria growth, and should be stronger than the bleach. Give it some time to work, and it might take few applications if there is a lot of algae in the tank. It should kill everything and break it up enough for it to flush out. And while you are shocking it.....take the TT down some bumpy, curvy roads.
