RE: Getting gas with long trailer?

I think it would be a lot less hassle if they passed a federal law requiring that awning heights be clearly verified and posted.

RE: Toilet Fills with Water Pump On

Over the years of full timing, I've replaced all the parts on mine a number of times. the water valve, if needed is a simple fix. I've noticed that the valve Is prone to leakage if the water pressure is low, give that a check. If you have access to the pedal side you can replace the valve parts without removing the toilet but for the first time pull the toilet, getting the peddle back on is a chore and best done o n the table with a beer. I actually like the style ll, you can rebuild all the moving parts in 15 minutes once you get it out.

RE: Replacement Water Pump

Since you can get one anywhere anytime why bother with an extra. I replaced mine this year because it had started leaking a tiny bit. It was still working and quiet after 20 years. I did fix it and put it in the garage. Hoarder!!!!! My pump fried when I was camping more than 75 miles from the nearest replacement. It took me 15 minutes to install the spare I had...

RE: Generators for 5er

I carry a 6.5 kw Honda in the back of the truck in an all weather enclosure, installed a remote start and it runs everything just fine. Only drawback ,if you're boondocking in 100+ weather you'll be going thru 4-8 gallons a day running ACs, we stay mostly in state parks and most of those have 50A power. In 4 years fulltiming we put about 600 hrs on it and have never regretted the purchase.

RE: Down Sizing

Good luck. After two years full time we got ride of everything we did not touch for those two years. It was about 40% not counting pots and pans (I like to cook) and we eat like kings.

RE: Nomadland Film

I found that movie a bit dark and brooding compared t my experiences.

We'll be driving from Bend to the The Dalles in a few weeks and I'm thinking of taking the 97 To the 197 towing a 39' fiver, how's the drive? Any concerns or recommendations?

RE: Electric bikes !!

I would like to see Electric vehicles (Golf Cars, Bikes, Scooters) with a user settable "Max speed" Governor. The campground I frequent has a 5MPH speed limit. they don't enforce for Bicycles but it would be nice if I could dial in say 10MPH and not worry about going 20. I can set my max to whatever I want

RE: Has anyone noticed

My wife and I have been on the road for a few weeks, we went up I-5 from Los Angeles and over to the central Oregon coast and now down into California on 101. We think that we have seen a larger number of high end class A's that appear brand new than ever before. I'm talking clean, dirt free wheel wells and running gear new. I'm thinking that the owners are new to the life style and bought way over their heads, that, or the average RVer just can't afford to travel right now. We're in an ocean/bay front park right now, nothing special, no trees or hedges dividing the spaces, no paved roads, only about a 8'X8' pad next to the parking spot, no gravel or paving to park on in the sites just dirt, no fire rings, just dead grass but it is an ocean/bay front park with great views. Normally we are among rigs similar to ours, a few years old gassers with a little wear and tear, not this trip, DP's all over very clean and stately, in what if it were not for the views is a low end park with no facilities to speak of, not what we are accustomed to seeing. The number of really big trailers is also greater than normal. It just seems that it has been this way since we left home. Ya ever wonder what they all think of you when you pull in???

RE: belly liner repair

I used 1/2 x2 wood strips and small drywall screw for future access.

RE: Electric bikes !!

Biktrix Juggernaut Ultra 1000 Pro, 1500W peak output. I've got a few thousand miles on it so far, have yet to find a hill it won't climb. It's good for anything up to blue diamond single track but, the fat tires do get in the way sometimes. It will do 40mph on flat ground. Only one downside, if you're not shifting properly, it will eat the drivetrain.

RE: Oregon State Parks Fire/open flame ban!

I would advise anyone camping in the woods to do a serious evaluation of just how fast they can roll up and bug out at a moments notice.
