RE: questions about rental RV

Before you do this trip, you might try to get hold of my favorite RV movie ever, "Rolling Family." video trailer

RE: I Went Camping With Five Girls!

Great trip report! This reminds me of the Good Old Days of Truck Camper Forum trip reports:

RE: Fridge/Freezer door opening while driving

Lots of good ideas here. I'll add mine: blue painters tape. BTW, my 1989 Dometic had a good dependable latch. My 2006 Dometic does not.

RE: Reasonably Priced Portable Compressor Fridge

A review of this same frig popped up on one of my favorite YouTube channels this morning. Here is the link: I like this reviewer because his explanations are clear and not too technical. He discloses that he was given the frig to try out, but notes a couple of times that he has nothing to gain or lose if you decide to buy or not buy it. He has only had an ice cooler before. He demonstrates setting up the frig, shows a real bag of groceries going into it, times the cooling, shows how much current it uses (from his vehicle's 12V plug while on the road and from the 12V plug on his Jackery power supply when parked. In the text which goes with the video, there is an Amazon link and a code for a $40 discount which is good until October 26, 2020. My own disclosure: I have owned and used a portable frig (another brand, similar size and functions)for several years to supplement the old and iffy 3-way in my RV. It is a game-changer for camping!

RE: Overland Build Idea

You could just get a Tiger. 4x4 pickup chassis, back of cab cut off, coach mounted onto chassis. Cutting off the cab back makes it a class C with pass-through between cab and coach. Built to order at the factory. New ones are pricey and used ones are scarce. I always say there is no perfect RV, but the 2006 Tiger CX which I bought new is by far the closest thing to a perfect RV for me.

RE: No power to headlights

My first RV was on a 1983 Toyota chassis. When it was about 20 years old, both headlights and all flashers and the horn all quit at once. Wiring diagram showed that the headlights were fused separately. ??? It turned out that a relay inside the steering column was causing the problem. It was still drivable (not legally), so I waited for daylight and drove it 150 miles to home and my regular mechanic.

RE: Class C

Tiger Class C's are built to order on a heavy-duty pickup chassis with 8-foot bed. Your choice of gas or diesel. Chevy, Ford, or RAM. Cab can be regular, extended, or crew. 4WD or 2WD. Add or subtract various features as you wish.

RE: Using a walker on trails

I suggest getting a rollator with 4 large wheels (7.5" to 8" rather than 6"), hand brakes, a seat and a basket/pouch for carrying stuff (water, hat, etc.). This is what my spouse uses. I agree. I have two, one with large wheels, one with small, one for indoors and one for outdoors. The large is definitely easier to walk with and also quieter.

RE: Fridge basics - for weekend use

My usual solution is to just use my small 3-way fridge like a cooler: put a lot of frozen bottles of water in it. It stays cold for several days, with the added plus of not having to totally level the truck at every campsite.

RE: Measuring battery condition

I have used an Innova battery monitor for years. It plugs into the 12V cigarette lighter type of 12V outlet and is movable, so I can use it to see voltage for car, RV chassis battery, or RV coach battery. Amazon has them for about $12.

RE: Trip report: The Tioga Area of Yosemite

Thanks for refreshing the memories of the many wonderful hikes I've done in those Tioga areas.

RE: Well known browsers acting strangely on iPad

This may be an Apple thing. My iMac desktop computer won't remember passwords in Chrome any more. Older versions of the operating software worked OK. Newer ones, Mojave and Catalina, do not. When I got a new iPad recently, I just gave up and started using the built-in Safari browser. It's not too bad.

RE: Mounting a truck camper on a chassis truck.

Take a look at some of these Truck Camper Magazine articles: articles about extreme rigs flatbed articles chassis mount articles None of them seem to be exactly what you describe, but they may provide ideas of possible sources. My RV is a 2006 Tiger CX, a small chassis-mount built on a stock Chevy 2500 HD 4x4 chassis. Not a TC, a true C with pass-thru between cab and camper. This CX model is no longer made. Newer ones are larger. Tiger Vehicles You might also find clues to this sort of rig at Earthroamer

RE: Diverticulitis

Just Google the diagnosis and ONLY trust web sites like WebMD, Johns- Hopkins, Mayo Clinic, etc. for your findings. Add - Diverticulosis/Diverticulitis to the above list. Clear, understandable, have passed the quality checks of the National Library of Medicine. Everything from basic to referrals to experts and more technical material. No advertising. also has a section on drugs and supplements. Read the materials supplied by your pharmacist and also read what you find here.

RE: CPAP Battery for Boondocking

After almost 7 years of using my CPAP on the coach's 12V battery system, I added a small electric refrigerator and there was no longer enough juice to go around. My solution was to purchase two small lithium "solar generators." They won't run the CPAP on 12V (not enough amps on that port), but the CPAP runs fine when using their built-in inverters. Each cost less than $200 with coupons found on Amazon or on YouTube reviews, they are light enough for me to lift easily, they recharge quickly from the truck alternator when I drive, and each powers the CPAP for 2 nights without humidifier. Caution: The results for your Dreamstation will be different. My camping CPAP is an old Phillips 60W. My HMO recently stopped supporting my old faithful CPAP and they gave me a new one which draws 90W and won't work on my RV's electrical setup. The old one still works and I can buy filters and such from, but my insurance won't pay for that. Insurance also did not pay for the 12V cord to use in the RV or for my two little power supplies. Buying two may not be what you need, but think about it. Two small ones are cheaper than one big one, you can charge one while you use the other, and if one fails you still have the other one.

RE: Few questions from the future RV-er

Think about: What kind of travel do you plan? Full-time or part-time? Scenic trips or staying in one place? Hooked up to utilities or on your own for utilities? How many people and animals will travel with you? Where will you keep the RV when not traveling? Neighborhood parking restrictions? Storage yard costs? Will your chosen rig fit your body comfortably? Are you tall, short, wide, etc? Do you fit into the toilet/shower area? Who will service your rig? Engine/drive train stuff often has to go to one place and RV features to another. Are these service centers located near you? Will you be on pavement or off? You mention 4WD. Some people use their 4WD for boat ramps or to get out of their slippery driveways at home and some want to go out there and explore. A 4WD RV is NOT a rock crawler, and often will not fit into those off-road places seen in photos. You can do expensive damage to your RV by taking it where it ought not go. I say this as a person who has driven a 4WD RV for 29 years. And yes, I still love my 4WD RV. etc etc. You get the idea. Know the features you need or want. Study the specs. Be cautious about believing what salespersons tell you. THERE IS NO PERFECT RV. Choose one that meets most of your needs, get out there, and enjoy it!

RE: Should I carry a spare tire?

I have RV'd solo for almost 30 years and almost 200K miles. Always carried a spare. Needed it once, last year, when a road hazard destroyed a new tire somewhere in Eastern Oregon. I had a cell signal and was on pavement for the first time in days. Called AAA, they contacted a local guy. He came and did the job and I was underway again within an hour. That is service! As I have aged, I have become disabled and no way can I change the tire myself. My part of the job is to have a spare in good condition, to have good insurance and roadside assistance coverage, and to carry a means of summoning appropriate help (both cell phone and Garmin InReach). A prepared traveler is a happier traveler!
