RE: Looking for ideas on how to Roll up/store 50 amp cord

If there is a complex expensive way to deal with something simple someone is sure to suggest it. Cooling the 50amp beast got old real fast so a nautical method of storing awkward line is used. It is flaked into an oval laundry basket. Enough of the female end is left out to reach the inlet. Only as much as needed is pulled out to the utility post. Cheap and effective.

RE: One night stays and black/grey tanks

3-4 days minimum to dump unless there are some serious mountain passes to cross.

RE: US101 Northern California

We went through on Thursday - left the campground (Chinook RV Resort) shortly after 9am and got in line. There were 15 vehicles ahead of us in line, waiting for the road to open at noon. I must say they were prompt: it was exactly 12:00:00 when we started moving! We got through the one-way section and then saw the line waiting to go south: almost 5 miles long! According to the handout we got at the RV Park the road is closed on Monday through Thursday from 8am to noon, and from 3pm to 7pm. All other times it is open to one-way traffic - controlled. You were ahead of us. We departed S of Fortuna about 11 not knowing a thing about any repairs. Ignorance is bliss sometimes.

RE: Consequences of RVing’s Unprecedented Surge

Like many on this forum we have had to adapt. We still seldom make reservations but we now look for someplace for the weekend on Thursday rather than Friday this year. We are seeing an awful lot of obviously very new units with very clean frames out there. How long the fad continues remains to be seen. Availability depends on when & what is wanted.Sunday to Thursday is easy.FHUs on the weekend, near impossible. Adapterbility is the key.

RE: If you can't decide if you want an RV or a boat

At best an RV is a collection of compromises with wheels. At best a boat is a bunch of compromises that float. Combined the result does not do anything well except suck up money.

RE: US101 Northern California

Came through the area a couple days ago. South to north. Got lucky. Minor delay. Currently in Crescent City. Hearing of delays up to 4 hours. We saw SB line that had to be 2 miles long.

RE: Peeling Decals. What to do.

Ya, it is the labour. Took my front cap decal off with a combo hair dryer & chemicals to get glue residue. Took it to the sign maker. One hour later the new decal, a blown up picture that we had taken, was on. Excellent quality material. Four years later it looks like just applied.

RE: Heading west?

We are in the middle of a four month trip to the west coast out of MD. Feeling rushed for time already.

RE: Renting questions before buying

Mr Andy, your friend needs to trade in the wife. There does not seem to be much trade in value but cut the losses

RE: I hate roundabouts -- but maybe I am wrong

The US has not gotten the idea of how to build roundabouts yet. Most are way too small & most drivers don't have any clue of how to use them. In England they know how to build them & drivers know how to use them. Generally they are much larger multiple lane affairs. Drivers actually use signal lights to let others know their intentions. The signage is much better too

RE: Colorado Campgrounds

We are currently sitting at the United CG next to the narrow gauge RR 4 miles N of Durango These folks have stepped way out of their way to accommodate us after we showed up with an issue making our 5er very difficult to move. We are on an indefinite layover as we wait for parts. Nice CG with plenty of trees to give shade during current heat. Great views across the valley.

RE: Turning a FW around in a Culdesac

Got a neighbours driveway that can be put to use in breaking down that 180' turn?

RE: Back before cellphones

I don't know how people enjoyed the RVing lifestyle before cellphones. How did you do the research required for multi month trips involving thousands of miles with all of the complications of weather delays & mechanical issues thrown into the mix? Today is easy. The basic route is plotted out. CGs are found on the fly, usually making a same day reservation a few hours from the destination.

RE: Generators!! Yes YOU!

Common sense courtesy rules regarding genny noise are there for those who have no common sense or courtesy.

RE: Generators!! Yes YOU!

As I type sitting in a marginal phone area & nearly empty NF CG my Honda 2000 hums away at a little above idle as it recharges the battery bank that was depleted some since last evening by the inverter. As only an occasional dry camper there is no justification for solar when less than 5 gallons of gas is burned each year. I like quiet too. Few things annoy me more than a genny being run for hours uneccessarily. Get an inverter for that C PAP machine. If you really must have A/C go to a CG with power.

RE: best route to/from Waterton, AB canada

There really are not many roads to choose from, if any choices at all, in that area. You plug in wherever the destination is on whatever navigation system you use & that is the way you are going. Any alternates will be miles longer.

RE: Overnight camping in Delaware

All private CGs on the DELMARVA are foully expensive. Best shot at an overnight is Killens Pond & make it a Sunday thru Thursday night.

RE: British couple buying an RV in the US

OP gets solid advice from one who has done it then disappears. You are welcome.
