RE: Working on the road.

Togo is a hotsopt by Wineguard for vehicles rather being a personal device. If you only work from your RV, it is a good solution. If you travel away from your RV and still need to work, it is not the solution. https://winegard.com/products/cellular/4g-lte-hotspots/togo-roadlink-c2/togo-roadlink-c2 What are your thoughs Pete, I'm about to drop some dollars on a WEBoost Drive Reach OTR Mobile Signal Booster Kit Where I'll be the next 4-5 weeks is poor signal zone. I can get decent phone but 4G LTE not at all. I can go into my settings and switch from GLOBAL to either LTE/CDMA or LTE/GSM/UTMS and get 4G though. I'll have to discuss this with Verizon to check if it's OK for me to do that or if I will incur additional charges. So anyway, it's 600 clams through the Wilson store. I'm open to suggestion of a kit you think is as good for less or if this is it. The RV kit at nearly 800 dollars it too much. The OTR kit is pushing it. Thanks for your input.

RE: I built shelves in a wardrobe for more storage.

Yes, it's Steamboat Rock. Going there in August, so we might get the skitters too... Funny story too. Thanks. Mitch As a side note, we went to a rally at Sunbanks Resort a few years back and really liked it. We also liked the Kettle Falls Campground.

RE: I built shelves in a wardrobe for more storage.

Very timely post. Thanks. Since we bought our camper in '18, my wife has been asking for shelves in the wardrobe. I've been slow to respond due to the thin paneling inside. I managed to find this video yesterday. I shared many of this lady's concerns, so I began my own no-drill solution. 2X4s will take up too much space, so I've got 2X2s in the back and 1X2s in the front. Unlike the video, I'll shape the shelves to fit around the supports so less space is wasted. It won't be anywhere near as pretty as Jeff's work, but I think It'll be functional. Starting with two shelves up high, but more can be added later if desired. Removable for trips where we really want to hang clothing, or for the next owner. My setup is pretty easy to remove and solid with only 6 screws attaching inconspicuously into the TC framing, not the paneling. It can be easily removed if needed but I opted to go for a more permanent and solid install, rather than an easily removed install since this is a setup we both agree we want more than a wardrobe. Also, we've been using it this way for years so we're pretty confident there will be no going back. My brother is already thinking of copying the design in his S&S as he is doing something similar but with wire racks he hates. I spent about 75.00 on materials and about 2 hours measuring, cutting, installing. A fairly simple project. hope it works out for you. If you do have any detail questions, give me a hollar...

RE: I built shelves in a wardrobe for more storage.

Yep, pretty spoiled for space for sure.. Just can't get to the places you go with your TC! Even more spoiled with the Rockwood.. Mostly WA State Parks now and enjoy watching your adventures out in the boon docks! But, even the state parks provide some nice scenery! https://i.imgur.com/MYt8rt2l.jpg https://i.imgur.com/n8btHZkl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/sB8RzIFl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/3EQf0mgl.jpg Mitch https://i.imgur.com/XG8H0uzm.jpg?1 By Golly that looks like Steamboat Rock. Funny story from there. We had my brother's daughter 12 or so at the time over in the TC with us when the mosquito spray truck came through and they wanted everyone to stay in their RV. We were in the TC but Kelli and niece were slicing onions. We all, including Charlie the cat, started crying from the onions. I hopped into the cab and drove us a mile out of the park and vented the TC out. Still laugh about it.

RE: I built shelves in a wardrobe for more storage.

We have two decent sized wardrobe closets in the truck camper. We use one for shirts, coats, hanging items. The other next to the stove has become a junk drawer where we just pile everything in it. Things would get forgotten in there. Out of sight, out of mind Ours also has two but the one next to the stove was already shelved which we use for canned food etc.. Nice job. We have the slide out pantry next to the shelves. It is safe to assume overflow food items during extended outings will find their way onto these shelves too. The shelves are 26 inches deep which makes for good storage volume.

RE: I built shelves in a wardrobe for more storage.

Nice. I just watched your Youtube vid on it. Great job in a TC size wardrobe! Just so other can see too, here are some things I did to my old Prowler TT to help with storage space. https://i.imgur.com/VFRJPkml.jpg https://i.imgur.com/VYJy9Ndl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/uerwgZJl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/1uGh31hl.jpg Have done similar things in the new Rockwood, but need to take some new pics of them... Thanks for the vid. Mitch https://i.imgur.com/XG8H0uzm.jpg?1 Space is at such a premium in a TC. You must be pretty spoiled with all that spare luxury space in your TT. Good solutions.

RE: I built shelves in a wardrobe for more storage.

You don't have the wife, do you? Yes, I do! She loves the shelving. That area was really her stash and now she can organize better. It will be used for largely the same items but now there are three levels and we can easily see and get to what we need.

I would get killed for such project. That seems a little harsh. If that is the consequence, don't chance it.

RE: I built shelves in a wardrobe for more storage.

Looks good. I added shelves to the back of the closet that were moveable. They tend to fall down. This gives me an idea to make them permanently mounted which will keep them from moving. My other shelves that fill the entire space have been great. I tried wire racks for a while but didn't like them sliding around and stuff falling through them. These shelves are a tight fit and are only attached to the existing cabinet in about 6 spots and can easily be removed. A couple of the screws were a trick to reach deep in the cabinet behind the spice rack. Finally got the screws down though. Next thing to do is install a Wilson over the road cell phone signal booster. Going to be camped in a spot with poor signal for a month soon.

I built shelves in a wardrobe for more storage.

We have two decent sized wardrobe closets in the truck camper. We use one for shirts, coats, hanging items. The other next to the stove has become a junk drawer where we just pile everything in it. Things would get forgotten in there. Out of sight, out of mind. I went to the Orange Box store and purchased some 1x12 premium pine and a couple 1x2 premium pine to make the new shelves. Tools required were a table saw, chop saw, and jig saw. Our S&S camper has a spice rack next to the stove built into the cabinet. That made the decision for where to place the two shelve boards, 1 above, 1 below the spice rack. I had to cut a tapered fit on one side of the board and got a nice fit. I used the 1x2 boards to make corned supports and also a raised face for the shelves to block things from sliding outward on the shelf. Now instead of an unsightly messy pile stuffed into the cabinet, we have 3 orderly shelves. Bottom shelf for foil, cellophane, parchment, Ziplok, etc... Middle for paper towels, toilet paper, cleaners, etc... Top shelf for Bath towels, toiletries. https://external-sea1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/safe_image.php?d=AQAtJA1bhdrX4TUI&w=540&h=282&url=https%3A%2F%2Fi.ytimg.com%2Fvi%2FCyDRfRhITD4%2Fmaxresdefault.jpg&cfs=1&upscale=1&fallback=news_d_placeholder_publisher&_nc_hash=AQCUCRmDSbHeoJwa width=600 https://scontent-sea1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/s960x960/100666390_10218484487203641_6370780833321582592_o.jpg?_nc_cat=110&_nc_sid=8024bb&_nc_ohc=2MH_o4TpMawAX8LW82r&_nc_ht=scontent-sea1-1.xx&_nc_tp=7&oh=857725d87672c29578d93df3eabae189&oe=5EF91877 width=400 VIDEO of project if interested.

RE: Corona Virus and RV Travel Video

Interesting Flu Corona Deaths Comparison. As of March 10 2020, the corona virus outbreak had infected more than 100,000 people and killed more than 3,000 globally, the majority in China, where the illness was first detected in December. More than 750 people in the United States have been diagnosed, including at least 25 people who have died. By comparison, influenza — known as the common flu — has infected as many as 45 million Americans since October and killed as many as 46,000, according to estimates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The numbers for both diseases have risen since the published date. This is a surprisingly hard comparison to find in the media, CDC, WHO. I'm reading several BLOGS of people traveling around the world and they are running into border closure issues. Some are being told to leave but are not being allowed into other countries such as Morocco to Spain is a get out no go situation. These occurrences just started happening. The people were getting through borders but not now. Stay tuned.

RE: Buyer beware

A note about Simpson brackets. I used couple of them on my Lance repair 3 years ago. Now parting the camper I removed them for demolition. They had cracks in the corners. They did not give up yet, but looks like it would be only matter of time. Looks to me that they are not design for flexing TC do. I am able to inspect the brackets on my truck camper and all are in perfect condition. No surface rust, cracking or anything else visible.

RE: Buyer beware

The video makes me think of Sleepy's Rig when it was driven by SAB Consulting cross country to Tacoma for a make over. I recall some people in the past had issues with their slides, installing either steel unistrut or 1-1/2x2 angle under the slides to deal with bowing down. This looked like a decent job within a budget and reason to make a sturdy TC again. I watched most of it. I FF past parts I'm not needing to see. Having a 2000 S&S wood frame TC myself with probable similar issues, it was interesting to me. I have already made some similar repairs to the front but not the rear yet. https://scontent-sea1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/90377370_10217783764926022_6819700916862582784_o.jpg?_nc_cat=102&_nc_sid=8024bb&_nc_ohc=RtTp1ah5XUwAX_g3Q3B&_nc_ht=scontent-sea1-1.xx&oh=e3c0befa5909f5dd1bf45ab11f6d3702&oe=5E9F62F1 https://scontent-sea1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t31.0-8/p720x720/10535784_10202964596936084_2640047396649012685_o.jpg?_nc_cat=108&_nc_sid=8024bb&_nc_ohc=l1y_LHRMHLsAX-B9dhR&_nc_ht=scontent-sea1-1.xx&_nc_tp=6&oh=7ff93896e67100cbfb657dbc9bdf9fa0&oe=5E9DDE16 https://scontent-sea1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t31.0-8/p720x720/10634038_10202964596856082_6869267040901401865_o.jpg?_nc_cat=111&_nc_sid=8024bb&_nc_ohc=ZDG3R2nQwT4AX9z4pbw&_nc_ht=scontent-sea1-1.xx&_nc_tp=6&oh=1ef1d36f7dc383b4dd1a8c8abfe4c565&oe=5E9D3AC0 https://scontent-sea1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t31.0-8/p720x720/10450105_10202964595776055_8639519328680048260_o.jpg?_nc_cat=102&_nc_sid=8024bb&_nc_ohc=wPOETLvCFHEAX8kGgAo&_nc_ht=scontent-sea1-1.xx&_nc_tp=6&oh=e522395e0587bd6ca98cd942f7ed97c3&oe=5E9C625E Black square at bottom of jack bracket is an awning bracket. https://scontent-sea1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t31.0-8/p720x720/10553687_10202964592815981_4406533569926805599_o.jpg?_nc_cat=101&_nc_sid=8024bb&_nc_ohc=ir2XOzxFUmQAX--azgw&_nc_ht=scontent-sea1-1.xx&_nc_tp=6&oh=e77fea5d61673c69f92a13c079501d43&oe=5E9EDAEA I Made a bottom support using a Simpson framing bracket bolting into the underside of the 2x3 on the bottom of the TC wall. Not perfect but much more stable. It supports from the bottom and holds toward the inside of the TC under the wing beneath the fridge. I have to do similar work to the right rear where there was a window leak that refused to be fixed until I installed a drip edge over the window. Problem solved.

RE: Corona Virus and RV Travel Video

My 88 YO brother walks Tule Springs, Floyd Lamb Park a lot and Red Rock Canyon. He's trying to get me to go down there during the shut down. I'm thinking about it. Red Rock Canyon is climbers destination from whole West Coast. Just like the wall in Index, WA. But since yesterday whole country has traveling restriction, so you might be a bit late for making decision? He's not a climber anymore at 88 but he likes the drive out to Red Rock from Summerlin and walking the trails along the park's loop road, especially the one where the blocks of stone were removed for buildings long ago. I'm not aware of any travel restrictions driving.

Hopefully this train wreck will turn around soon. It would be a big improvement if they could just get some hand sanitizer back on the shelf. I did manage to get some toilet paper at Fred Meyer. Some Camco RV/Marine, 4 small rolls, 3.99. As I entered the checkout line, people asked where I got it. I suspect that supply is gone now too.

Top of the hour news just said a large increase is expected in 4 days due to the increased testing. I'll be interested to see if that comes to fruition. Market breakers kicked in again as market continues downward trend. People who vape have more complications? Hopefully this train wreck will turn around soon.

RE: Corona Virus and RV Travel Video

People are losing their minds over this hyped-up Coronavirus. It's a complete hoax. Not enuf people are dying to make this virus relevant. The N1H1 killed 12,000 people before the prior president took any action. Yet there was no hoarding, no closing of schools and churches, no closing of bars and restaurants, no panic, no nothing. What makes Coronavirus worthy of destroying the US? 3 Things make it bad: 1) It is at least 3 times more contageous than "normal" flu. 2) Many people will be contageous days before showing any symptoms or knowing they have it. Some will never shows any symptoms, but still be contageous. These folks will spread it into the elderly high risk population. 3) It is 10 to 20 times more fatal than "normal" flu. So, instead of 1 out of 1,000 infected people dying, 1 or 2 out of 100 will assume room temperature. 4) Even if you survive, it can leave permanent lung scaring that can reduce lung capacity by 20% to 30%. Oops, that's 4. :) Its no hoax. It is real. It is a killer and it is headed your way. I realize as Mayor of Flat Rock, you must carry out your duties of office and protect your citizenry. It is concerning and people need to take appropriate measures to protect themselves as they see fit. I have heard the fatality percentage number is expected to drop as more people are tested and a greater over all sampling of the herd is taken. I've also heard that some of the younger victims are frequent vape users and lung damage may have already occurred. This thing will pass before long but it is expected to become a seasonal disease. As a society, we cannot have overreactions and market collapses every year. Sanity must reclaim it's place.

RE: Corona Virus and RV Travel Video

As for our plans this year, we're going camping! We'll keep monitoring what happens with the outbreak but it will only limit places and events we might go to avoiding large tightly packed crowds. Hiking, fishing, camp fires will be safe. Camping and traveling to get where we're going has practically zero risk. I may back off on salads and uncooked foods for a time. The virus is here now, out of the bottle so to say. I understand to expect it every year now as part of the normal cold and flu season. I expect there will be a shot for it before long.
