RE: Gaining Altitude

Day 9 - We leave our roadside overnight spot on Trough Rd and head south to Heaton Bay Campground in the White River National Forest. It was full by 2 pm on a Thursday so we just checked it out and headed for higher altitudes and cooler weather. We stopped in Leadville and checked with the visitor center where we were told about Halfmoon Campground and the availability of dispersed camping along the forest road leading to the campground. We found a nice spot but only spent the one night as it was also plagued by black flies and mosquitoes. When will it end ? Day 9 - Heaton Bay Campground and Halfmoon Rd dispersed camping

RE: loosing old members

Hadn't thought of that ... you make a good point. I always write up a lengthy description of the video that shows below the video. Seems like it would be not much work to copy/paste that description in your posts here. I was thinking the same thing :)

RE: Three Camping And Fishing Videos - An Excellent Weekend

That's why they call it "fishing" and not "catching" :-)

RE: loosing old members

Long ago I said "If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a video is worth a thousand pictures". But, if you don’t properly introduce the content with a signifcant summary, many won’t take time to follow your link. Hadn't thought of that ... you make a good point. I always write up a lengthy description of the video that shows below the video. I have in the past created a running series of videos (Day 1, Day 2 etc etc) that had a very comprehensive description of the journey format at the introduction of the series and figured that each video link that followed would be included in that description.

RE: A camper window with a view

I thought we were supposed to post pictures of views out the camper window ? https://i.postimg.cc/VL4B3JTW/IMG-20190116-170613605.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/tTJRBmKj/IMG-4837.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/25K3NDF6/P1120309.jpg

RE: loosing old members

YOLY..I have been here many years...and things have changed many times. I will say this..people come and go, but over the years the information...new and old is worth a gold mine. Now that you started to post pictures, well it is worth a thousand words...so cliche. I took photography in high school and was always into the new age of documenting the now...so glad to hear someone who has the same likes..I'm not going away any time soon .. Long ago I said "If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a video is worth a thousand pictures".

RE: loosing old members

I'm new to truck campers but I've had a steep learning curve having purchased 5 of them new in the last 3.5 years. Lots of previous experience with 4 pull behinds prior as we've traveled 10K miles a year since retiring in 2006. Frankly I got a bit excited discovering this dedicated TC forum but quickly began to have second thoughts about it. I don't understand people's negativity towards someone posting a YouTube video dedicated exclusively to our passion for TCs. Someone made a reference that they are "self-serving". I propose that this isn't always the case. I fell in love with making movies long before the word video was invented. I got my first movie camera when I was 11 years old in 1959 and have been making "movies" for over 60 years now. My YouTube channel is over 10 years old with close to 400 videos. I've never monetized a single video, nor ever made a penny from my hobby. All advertising is banned from my channel as I own 100% of all rights. I've never once asked anyone to subscribe to the channel. I don't care about views or likes or any such BS. I do it for the joy of doing it and simply sharing experiences with anyone who may be like minded. I just don't see how this is self-serving. I have just over 2 years worth of TC travel videos that I mistakenly thought other truck campers might be interested in. I've learned ten times more from watching videos than I've ever learned from any forum or owner's club. I used to use a third party hosting site for posting photos. It was free and easy. They recently went bye bye as did all my photos. As suggested here, I tried the RV.NET link and had no luck getting photos to display here. It's funny however that the link works perfectly well on other forums such as Truck Camper Adventure. When I posted that information here not a single comment or response from anyone. These are the primary reasons that I've recently contemplated bailing on forums in general. As a last resort at photo uploading I'm going to try crcr's suggestion ... https://i.postimg.cc/fLDDX1HK/DJI-0127.jpg NOTE: Per crcr's information to use "Hot Link for Forums" .... this did not work for me. I switched to "Direct Link" and that was successful.

RE: True Truck Payload

Our Ram 2500 with 2WD and 6.4L Hemi has a payload capacity about 1000 lbs more than the same truck with the Cummins and 4WD. This allows us a wide range of mid sized options in selecting a TC. Our Adventurer 80RB and Travel Lite 840 SBRX fully loaded (passengers and gear included) are well under the GVWR, axle, wheel and tire ratings as well as the sticker payload number.

RE: Recommendations for quiet portable generator

It wasn't intended to be an argument but a simple fact of life. My wife and I cannot lift that much weight safely. I do not have the means to construct any of the devices you so proudly boast of nor the inclination to do so. We are perfectly happy with the choices we have made. If you can't lift 65 lb, than you are disabled person. You shouldn't lift Honda 2000 neither. Obviously everything in this life require some thinking about possible ways to do. Just this morning I unloaded 250 lb marble slab from my van and carried it on my patio. Some thinking how to leverage the weight without lifting more than 50% and using hand truck does the trick. Anyway, topic went far beyond original question and when loading and fuel supply are secondary issue, Honda 3000 is the quietest generator for AC loads Period. Even Predator is much quieter than Honda 2000 CHECK THE VIDEO The video is not an apples to apples comparison. I would certainly expect a generator under greater load to be louder. The Honda operating at 1500 watts is around 85% load while the 3500 watt generator is running approximately 50% load. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to discern why the Honda is turning more RPM which increases the sound pressure wave. And I am not actually disabled and frankly find your comments insulting. I know my limits from a practical standpoint and have found the 50 lbs of the EU2000 to be manageable and easy to deal with. I'm in my seventies and fit for my age. I just don't take lifting heavy things for granted like I used to.

Still can't lift 100 lbs :( Another BS argument. It wasn't intended to be an argument but a simple fact of life. My wife and I cannot lift that much weight safely.

RE: 2020 SE TC Gathering - planning stage

just looked at rates for Big Meadows family CG. unless I looked at the wrong place $67 per nite is not acceptable for us. My point in my previous post was that they only publish the deluxe river front site prices and the deluxe sites which are exorbitant at $67. The rest of the park has cheaper site prices but their web site doesn't mention them .... that's what I found peculiar.

RE: 2020 SE TC Gathering - planning stage

I just looked at Spring Lake Resort's web site and find it quite impressive. Probably better than my recommendations :-) Hope we can make it. I agree! Just checked out rates at Big Meadows. Holy Smoke.....I have never paid that much for a campsite. Unusual that they only publish the most expensive site rates ? The last time we were there we paid $40 for the riverfront site (maybe 4 years ago). I found the rates at Spring Lake Resort to be way more in line with my thinking also.

RE: 2020 SE TC Gathering - planning stage

Been chatting with Jimmy and Brenda (aka Ramp Digger) about your event and I thought you might like to check out a video I made in advance of a rally we attended for [email protected] teardrop travel trailers. This is a very nice campground also .... just an fyi :) Big Meadow Family Campground

RE: Why aren't Truck Campers popular in W. Pa.?

As others have mentioned and recommended D&H RV, you can add our name to that list. We were so happy with our experience I made a video to remember it by. We actually purchased 2 TCs from them in later times because we had such confidence in them. At the time they had a good selection with at least 4 different brands that I can remember. D&H RV

RE: Gaining Altitude

In the summer from 120F in Las Vegas takes me about 40 minutes to drive to Mt Charleston to walk on the snow most of the year. On one of the days we saw 88 degrees at just over 11,000 feet ! Much hotter than we were expecting and unlike 2 years ago when we explored Colorado, black flies and mosquitoes everywhere we went.

RE: Leaking Roof Lance TC

Water is insidious and I have seen first hand what a very small leak can do. Often the actual damage is far worse than the early signs indicate. Left undetected for even a few months it can create enough black mold to pose a health hazard and structural weakness. This is an example of water intrusion caught before there was any signs of water damage in the interior. If you are seeing the signs indicated, there is a decent reason to do a more thorough inspection. The RV.NET photo uploader does not work on this site yet works fine for me posting on several other forums ??? https://i.imgur.com/F0v9gDdl.jpg

RE: What did you do to your truck today?

Added ROKU bluetooth home theater speakers for that IMAX experience. I used the RV.NET photo uploader here but pictures don't display. You can see them and read about them on the Truck Camper Adventure Magazine Forum. Funny thing is that I used the RV.NET uploader to post the photos there with no issues.
