RE: Not enough room

When I'm driving in unfamiliar territory, I start days or weeks ahead planning my fuel stops. I've found that Google Earth is a very good tool to use.

RE: Cheap Win 10 laptop

With these specs. you are getting what you are paying for: 1.1GHz Processor; 4GB LPDDR4-2133 RAM; 64GB ROM Data Storage. Might be good enough for web browsing and email but not much else. Very slow processor, minimal ram and too little room for data storage much less any additional programs. Can't think of why I would want it .

RE: Deisel handling

Our 2016 Winnebago Journey DP built on a Freightliner chassis handles like a dream. I can one handed it to periodically change driving positions, eat on the go or scratch. The exception is high winds. To me it drives like a big pickup truck. That is in contrast to our previous 2007 HR Endeavor DP. I guess some are better than others. But I do know that some class A gassers are notoriously squirrely.

RE: 2022 campgrounds

We had a 3K mile trip planned for our summer get out of Arizona trip. Cut it about in half due to diesel prices and decided to not go outside Colorado. When we called to cancel our reservations in MT, ID and WY, were told those campgrounds were facing many cancellations. We were able to snag 10 days in Gunnison where you have to almost wait for someone to die to get in. We made reservations in Estes Park at the last minute and got a several week stay. Normally, they are booked months in advance. Manager said they've had lots of cancellations. Numerous vacant sites every night. Very unusual for Estes Park in July. With several decades of summer experience in Estes Park, I can say the crowds here are definitely thinner.

RE: Los Algodones Mexico

No worries. Carry your own water in or drink bottled water provided. Montezuma's revenge is not lurking around every corner. Get your teeth cleaned and eat at one of several local eateries. Been doing it for years. Haven't died or caught anything I know of yet. Just use good sense. It is a great cultural experience to go there. Never felt threatened. If you are on prescription drugs, check at the "purple pharmacy". Either have a photograph of your overpriced American packaging or a copy of you prescription. You will pay 50% or less than what you are being ripped off for in the US.

RE: Cleaning Water Jugs

I'm sorry... I've drunk out of too many garden hoses. When I finish using my extra water containers, I rinse them and let them dry out and then recap them. When I want to use them again, I just rinse them out several times and use them. Been doing that for a couple decades. Not dead yet!

RE: Where have all the members gone on this forum?

OP here... I think my original post generated more responses than any I have ever posted. Your responses got me to thinking about some things. When I have a question about something I do a search on the internet which many times either takes me to Youtube or archived answers, IRV2 or other specialized topic forums. I personally don't spend as much time on this forum because responses are too often off topic or the respondent obviously didn't read the original posting. Thanks fellow RVers for your food for thought. Be safe out there and have fun.

Where have all the members gone on this forum?

Couldn't figure any other place to ask this question... I've been here since 2005. Have no idea how many posts I've done during that time. Back a several years ago I could ask a question about something and get numerous answers quickly. In the last couple of years I've noticed a very real decline in the activity on RV.NET. So, where has everybody gone? Other forums, Facebook, etc.

Route from Cortez Colorado to Gunnison

Driving from Cortez to Gunnison with 41' motorhome and toad. Routing on MapQuest is taking me on Colorado 145 over Lizard Head Pass to Placerville turning on CO 62 to Ridgeway to Montrose. Did it years ago in a car. I remember it was very pretty. I'm aware of the construction closures on 50 between Montrose and Gunnison and will be travelling on a Saturday. What say you?

RE: Residential refrigerator outside temperature below 40°

Close the vent off. No worries about temp until well below freezing. Bingo! When installing a residential frig you block off the outside vents. That is what we did on a previous swap out.

RE: CG Prices

Yes, CG rates are out of control, but have you recently priced a decent motel room? At least with the MH, I know what went on in the bed last night and there wasn't a meth lab in the room last week. Supply and demand plus inflation are driving the price of RV sites.

RE: Tire exploded in Florida

Had a similar problem with Keystone's crappy Trailer King tires. Lost two on a trip with less than three thousand miles. Got lucky and did minimal damage. Trailer King said the tire I sent them was either over or under inflated. BS! Keystone puts the cheapest tires they can find on their products. Decided to replace all four tires with something better. I usually don't diss China produced products because my life is full of them, but Trailer King are China bombs.

RE: Help with Thetford Tecma macerator toilet problem

THETFOR TECMA MACERATOR NOT FLUSHING PROBLEM SOLVED! I’m posting this resolution for those experiencing similar issues. The wife and I continued to troubleshoot the problem first by searching the internet over the Memorial Day weekend since Thetford support wasn’t available. Found a couple of references to heat related issues with the controller and tank sensors but nothing definitive. Wife went out Monday morning and pushed the flush button and it worked. Thinking it had somehow magically fixed itself, we periodically went out to test it. About noon wife told me it failed. She said it sounded like might be temperature related since temps were well over 90 with temps inside temps matching that. Tuesday morning the toilet was once again working. I turned on the A/C and set the thermostat to 79. Toilet continued to function into the heat of the day. Cut off the A/C late afternoon and temp inside climbed to 90 and the toilet failed. Called Thetford the next morning and went through the problem and troubleshooting with them. The tech admitted that there was a known heat related issue with controllers delivered 2015-2016. Ordered a new controller from RV & Boat Accessories for $240 including second day ground. Also available on Amazon and other RV and marine parts suppliers. Install is simple plug and play. Inside temp at 95 and it’s still flushing!

RE: Help with Thetford Tecma macerator toilet problem

Updated information. I did a 12V reset and got a red light (tank full). Did another reset and got a green light, but still wouldn't fill or flush. Did a third reset and got a red light. Really starting to think it is the controller.

Help with Thetford Tecma macerator toilet problem

Brought the 2016 Winnebago Journey home to get ready to leave in two weeks. Thetford Tecma is dead. Not responsive to pressing buttons on wall. No lights, sounds, etc. I did a reset on the 12V system and the blue panel light did light on the wall switch, but still dead. I verified 13V on main power coming into the controller. Voltage on the wall switch line was 10.9V. The wall switch only has two wires. So not sure how all the switch functions work on just two wires except that perhaps it may be a canbus logic system like the Firefly switch system. My problem has to be either the wall switch or the controller. I did order a wall switch from Amazon which will be here today. I can send it back it that doesn’t solve my problem. That leaves the controller since there is not anything else that could go wrong. Since it is Memorial Day weekend I can’t call Thetford. Any comments on their tech support? Are they one of those companies who offer not support except to call an authorized factory dealer? Suggestions comments please. Don’t want to try to get in line at the local RV shop.

RE: One Day Entry Fee Increase - RMNP

In addition to the fee increase and the continuation of timed entry, the shuttles are also coming back. Will also be starting the weekend of May 27th and run into October. Free shuttles, easy to get to Bear Lake area from a variety of starting points. Read the press release in the Estes Park News this week. Even the Hiker Shuttle is subject to the timed entry fee.
