RE: Essential tools to carry; pole saw.

If any one is offended.. my apologies...I just get so frustrated with posting a well thought out topic and then to have it so twisted around is not in good faith. If you got something to say then make a thread and we will discuss it on your thread but for this to go from pole saws to where it went is ridiculous...come on we are talking personal experience and education...that is why I'm here. Nuff said.

RE: Essential tools to carry; pole saw.

Ok specta, what do you have to give to us?(here) In this thread, tell the world. You only have 390 posts...give us more of your experiences...I would love to hear them..well? Let us debate that on your own posts.. you seem to be in opposition of my educational experiences...why would you do that? Who are you? What kind of educated person are you? I give a piece of advice and hands down experience? You knock me down?..wow more than holy are you...educate me and all of of us. Will you please tell us all about what you know about being prepared about boon docking? I am ready to hear from you and why not carrying multiple tools (SAWS) of the trade is an argument?...WOW I'm not sure. I know this ... I would not want to camp with you.

RE: Essential tools to carry; pole saw.

OK, back on point...essential tools to carry?..a pole saw was the original post. Why? I'm giving the info from my experiences..don't get caught off guard when you go deep off road... you need to be prepared. Carry all the saws you can, want to, or own...the road can have many obstacles in or out...it is that simple. We do not talk politics...never. Not a good thing for anyone. Hello we are talking camping here...it should be a safe zone to educate and exchange experiences without what side your on. Politics is not what we do here.

RE: Essential tools to carry; pole saw.

True that... I expect it. Always a downer when you think you start a good educational thread and you get the trolls and naysayers. I have learned that you move on and if your info is true and on point...the truth wins out.

RE: TC off truck

X2...support the floor....just the jacks are not enough to support movement. It is to much stress on just the corners moving around inside or if the wind is blowing. Same as if you stow it away..and are not using it...shore it up from underneath and give it a good base.

RE: Essential tools to carry; pole saw.

Well I think for the most part we all come prepared, because we have been there...but like the first time for some, not all the experience is there. We all had to learn from someone who knows or from your own failures. That is why if a newbie was to come across a conversation like this, it would point out the importance of being prepared. Don't forget, people come here to learn something from us who have been doing this for years. Newcomers are looking for a learning curve and we should help them in their new journeys. I take this forum as a place where you can apply book smarts and take it strait to the forest, outback desert, where ever you may go as a new person looking for an adventure. You can't get a better education than the advice that most of us give here...pass it on.

RE: Essential tools to carry; pole saw.

I'm just saying it again...it is worth a conversation. Being prepared, specta thanks for the pics...this is exactly what I was talking about....great visuals. You need saws and this really proves it beyond a doubt. The hangers can tear a hole in your roof in a second, hence the pole saw, but a down tree can really ruin your day if you can't remove it. Example; Coming back out of the Mount Hood National Forest one weekend,(in the snow), not a huge tree but one tall enough to completely block the road across.. I came up on it coming back down and a few cars had stopped on the other side...no one had any thing to cut with, but who did? Yeah me..so it goes to show that my advice to someone who had never been further off a paved road is not a good piece of advice? I beg to differ. If you do this long enough you learn what to expect..what can go wrong will go wrong, trust me. Tools of the trade.

RE: Essential tools to carry; pole saw.

As a matter of fact, I just acquired an 18v Milwaukee saws-all last month. It is in my truck this moment. I don't take to much to heart when I try to make a decent subject a talking point. There will always be a naysayer. I personally do a lot of boon-docking and you can never be to prepared for what comes your way. For those who don't live here in the Northwest, trees fall and branches hang. It's just part of what we do here. I totally understand why a shovel is a good idea for all kinds of reasons. Happy Holidaze everyone!!

Essential tools to carry; pole saw.

Funny how subjects get brought up but this was one I would like to address here in the NW...I was talking to someone who wanted to travel off road...a bit deeper into our forests with a TC....I asked do you have saws?MMM...well I carry an electric chain saw; long extension cord (no gas) and a pole saw always...well I think it is obvious why...my genny can run my Pollan if I run into a fallen tree and my pole saw can take care of low branches..just tools of the trade. Comments?

RE: 2WD or 4X4 for a truck camper

Nothing better than a 4x4 with a TC in the bed...you got a great combo if you got it and you got both in one package...especially if it is a dually...been there. Your world is wide open..it is a hand in hand..so many checks as to a good ride and experience to the the camper glamping. It is the question ...where are you going? and what are doing and what road do you you take?..Are you a 4 season camper? This is what you have to ask yourself....

RE: Dual pane windows....

Regardless..of the swap and I get the reason for the clear on the bottom..I really improved the insulating of the windows in the door. It was pretty easy to do...It is an easy one day project.

RE: Dual pane windows....

Just for grins, and I'm sure it will work out in your head,...I have a dual pane door conversion in the university sticky. It worked out really well using high end acrylic on the inside and glass on the outside..the conversion was a game changer for a door..flat out the builder doors are built wrong and should just come this way. My beef was the clear pane was on the bottom... you expect to see though the clear panel though the truck and TC that was at the floor?, It does not happen especially when pulling a trailer.. what does it matter?...and it had privacy glass on the top.. WHY?. Wrap your head around this..it is an 11.5. I can't see trough the door while driving...but someone can walk up and see right into the camper at ground level?..It just did not make sense. So I put the privacy glass at the floor and the clear at the top so I could see out at the door when I am inside and look out or down...does that make better sense? Go look it up.

RE: Dual pane windows....

MMM...good debate so far. I have had singles, a front window, single pane door, storms and dual panes. Glad to see the diversity of opinion. I only wanted to see your experience with what you have had and this is good info for this time of year...Me personally had no issues with fogging. I once stayed overnight at Timberline lodge where it was -50 wind chill overnight...It defiantly helped on that trip from my observations.

Dual pane windows....

Well having a great holiday season hope you are too. Well a discussion came up about winter camping and if you RV camp year round should you have them? My experience is that it really does help out actually all year round IMHO...keeping heat in and keeping the hot out..would like to hear some input...just sound off if you have them. What is your take on the extra insulated option?..I know some builders offer it now as a just do it..it comes as standard. Just want to have a new thread as to everyone's opinion. Oh and by the way..check out my dual pane conversion in the camper door...no one makes this... at least the last time I checked....it is in the university...sticky. I mean why have dual panes and a door that does not? Sorry still trying to figure out Photobucket....All my Pics are blurry. Trying to find a solution.

RE: dumping tanks

When I built my house...RV was in the plans. I have a water and 30 amp power service in the driveway for visitors, but on the side of the house I have a water, 30 amp power, and sewer hookup for a long stay...

RE: 2WD or 4X4 for a truck camper

That is my setup..Cummins HO 6 speed manual 4x4 with 4 low, neutral, 2 high, 4 high. Personally love it. The trans even has a PTO access cover...but that is another thread.

RE: 2WD or 4X4 for a truck camper

Just used my granny 4x4 gear to back up a boat trailer into a grassy area of my friends place, not a steep incline but wet grass and level at the top. Sure enough, my rear tires start to spin...stop immediately and put it in 4x4 low and it creeped up with no spin at all. Again glad I had it..same could be said if you have a TC while using it in slippery situations comes in real handy. Using 4x4 on the leveling blocks works great.

RE: 2WD or 4X4 for a truck camper

WOW..I have 40 acres outside of Peach Springs off route 66.. Fantastic place to camp out...the weather can turn on a dime been there at 14 degrees and fresh snow...lol. 5000 feet altitude. REALLY... back to the OP question. What type of insurance do you want to buy? Well, what you want to do and where and what will you do and go with your TC? It is a simple question you have to ask yourself. No one is doing anything wrong...we all have a purpose as to how we use our mobile shelters. Regardless, IMHO, I prefer to lean towards something with a little bit more traction. You may never need it but when you do and learn how to use it..remember this..even using a granny gear to get on blocks it is worth it.
