RE: Please read the signs....

"It's not just the RVs that are "reading comprehension challenged". 3 years ago, a minivan (with Alaska tags) was traveling towards Anchorage on the Seward and had a posse of upwards of 50 or more cars/trucks/RVs blocked along the 2 lane section from the Whittier cutoff (Portage?) along the entire north shore of the Cook Inlet. I eventually got by, but the rest were stuck enjoying a lovely sub-speed limit stroll. " Agree....over the past 4-5 days (driving in my car, not an RV), I was stuck behind a below-the-speed-limit vehicle 5 times...a couple of them were Jeep Wranglers clearly on the way back from offroading and a couple were RV' of the RV's was this morning, hence why I posted it here. Probably a bit unfair to single out RV's.... We can single out those Wranglers though! I was behind one doing 30 in a 40 on a very windy 2 lane road a couple nights ago. Was 2nd out of a dozen backed up vehicles. The one in front of me turned off and I got pole position. Gave the Wrangler a couple high beam flashes. He sped up 3mph then back down. I assume he was drunk/high

RE: Fan recommendations?

These fans move an incredible amount of air and don't seem to break at all. Last forever. Absolutely the best 12v fan

Have never seen this signal in all my life.

RE: Angry wannabe RV police encounter

Wow! Some of you guys are freakin scary! Pull out a shotgun? Wave a .45? Ask me again why some want to take away firearms? For somebody yelling and screaming? I carry when traveling,but I know what is legal and what is not I know what is wise and what is not. The only time my gun is coming into sight is half a second before I pull the trigger.It will be for some guy halfway into my rig,or to stop a violent felony in progress. Certainly not for some hothead screaming and waving his arms. Brandishing is against the law in every state I know of. Ask me again why we are going to lose the Second? Exactly. I was shocked to read that stuff too. Possibly just internet cowboys who didn't do a thing but brandishing a firearm is a quick pass to jail usually. No one should see your firearm until it's being shot at them. Period.

RE: Bigfoot fiberglass shell

What about making the shell?? It's not that hard at all to make a shell in fiberglass if that's what you're after.

RE: Onan 2500 LP won’t turn over no light on remote switch

What about the start switch on the generator itself? What happens when you use that?

RE: Electric Vehicles? Towing? Hauling?

Depending on how long it takes to charge, where chargers are available and what the payload capacity is, I'd get one of these to comply with environmental regulations m. 500 mile range, crazy towing capacity

RE: Fulltiming across the USA.............on your own land?

Why not just rent seasonal spots and not deal with ownership costs and responsibilities? Gardens, hunting, fishing, firewood, off grid power/water. The list goes on and on.

I'm thinking this would be nice for snowbirding with just 2 lots

Definitely interested in this idea too.

RE: I hate dinettes

Absolutely a waste of space. They need convertible tables that vanish and comfortable Captain's chairs or couches instead. Worst thing about my TC is absolutely the dinette taking up valuable space and making it so there is nowhere comfortable to sit. Abolish dinettes now!!

RE: carbon Monoxide alarm going off

We get water heater exhaust in the RV all the time since it's located directly below a window. We shut the window when using the propane feature of the water heater.

RE: Electric Vehicles? Towing? Hauling?

Speaking of hooligans, how about the ones that park their Diesel bombers in the charging station parking spots just to mess around with electric car owners? These have to be some of the dumbest people I’ve ever heard of. Should I be ALLOWED to park where it says "low emissions parking" ??? Hell no. A Dodge Ram 3500 is not a low emissions vehicle and it doesn't even fit in a single spot either. You need to park way out in the lot. Just like I do with my Ram 2500 that also takes up a little over one spot. We have no right or moral authority to park our very large trucks right at the front. Have some courtesy.

RE: Quick and Easy Camper Life

Living in SW FL, we had to evacuate our home for hurricane Irma. We towed our tt to Alabama. When the storm was over we came back to no damage on our house but almost everyone else had quite a bit of damage, many homes are still covered with tarps waiting for a new roof. We hooked the generator up to the tt in our driveway. Had a/c, hot showers, refrigeration, and cooking abilities with HD tv, for over 2 weeks till the power came back on and water was cleared for drinking. Nice to have a back up plan. Did that too! Ha ha Drove from NY to FL to save my boat from the hurricane. Bought jugs for extra diesel since all gas stations were closed and stocked up. Then drove into Georgia to avoid the main eye after securing the boat. Plan worked perfectly and in total comfort. Felt pretty tippy in gusts to 60mph but not enough to tip the TC.

RE: Quick and Easy Camper Life

Literally how I use my TC every single day. It's the best! Small enough to fit anywhere. Like a mobile apartment

RE: Electric Vehicles? Towing? Hauling?

Of course it all depends on your needs. And I’m talking about the on topic needs of someone with an RV. Not a commuter. Not someone going to get groceries. I’m talking about someone making a trip across the country towing A fifth wheel. A truck camper. A class C. A class a.. Any of these. There is no way an electric vehicle would work for any of that. Don’t get me wrong. If I had a house and was just going around grocery shopping, dropping off kids, going to a job. I would have solar panels on my roof and I would charge my electric car from that. Without a doubt. But I am concerned that there will be some regulation coming soon that will require all vehicles sold to be electric. Or zero omission. What does that do for RVs? If you look in Europe, there are plenty of places RVs simply are not allowed because they are zero emission areas. This concept could come here very easily. Especially with all the hype about electric cars.

RE: Electric Vehicles? Towing? Hauling?

“Sane energy has to come from somewhere.” Obviously. Energy made centrally is more efficient overall than energy made individually. Many are concentrating on storage of energy made during the day via solar for use in the night. Those storage ideas may well translate into vehicles. Your TC couldn’t be carried by a Model T but it can be carried by today’s vehicles. Don’t fear the future. Without change there will be no progress. I understand with scales of production, but what about the losses in the powerlines? I have a hard time believing that it is more efficient and environmentally sound to make the energy elsewhere. Unless of course, there is a lot of solar involved in the grid. I think it's more of a NIBMY thing. Can you show me where my gut reaction is wrong? Anything I can read online about that? Self contained parking lots. A parking lot like this will supply twice the daily power needed for every commuter in this lot. The existing technology will adapt and grow to cover the additional 20 percent needed for EV's in most modern countries. Many members on this forum report the US grid is more of a third world affair and constantly on the edge of collapse but where there is a will there is a way and it'll eventually catch up. These are really cool. I've started noticing these recently. I had assumed they were not for the cars but for the company. I didn't realize the power was for the cars. And... It's not grid dependent, but locally produced, distributed power production, which is the best way to go. I've been off grid for decades now. Haven't paid an electric bill in decades. Plugged in my RV one time last summer for a couple nights when the generator broke and we needed air conditioning to live. . Never had a power failure because my electricity is made locally. I guess it's the charging time that's the real issue to me, as someone that likes to travel large distances with a truck camper. Would make that impossible with current charging schemes.

RE: Electric Vehicles? Towing? Hauling?

There seems to be quite a push lately for zero emission vehicles and electric only vehicles. How on Earth would these ever work for us? You can't go cross country in an electric vehicle in a practical way. You don't get great range when towing or hauling a TC. What are we going to do when these become mandatory?? I'm also not sold on them in general as I think it's less carbon not to manufacture a new car (with lithium batteries) in the first place and continue running your old car. Especially given people forget it still takes the same energy to move a car from the bottom of the hill to the top. Sane energy has to come from somewhere. It's just being made remotely and pollution somewhere else. What are we going to do when it's all electric and zero emissions becomes mandatory? I'm a very off grid person and I'm disgusted by the on grid nature of this trend as well as the requirements in a few places that all vehicles must be electric now. I doubt Ev will be mandatory anytime soon, But once EV trucks are available at reasonable price youll forget about diesels quickly But it doesn't work for RVing. How do I take off from the east coast and drive to Wyoming or something? I can't. It doesn't have range or any ability to refuel (charge) in a reasonable amount of time. Simply doesn't work for travelers. And I think I'm definitely one of those anti Elon Musk people. Kind of annoyed that everyone thinks he invented anything at all. He just took old ideas and marketed them with new sizzle. Some of the first cars invented were electric cars. That's a different off topic topic though. Ha ha ha. Point is, this stuff doesn't work for RVing. No range, long recharge times means a terrible traveling experience.
