RE: Verizon's free 15gig

Got the same notice and it hasn't changed my data usage total yet but I assume it's all good. :)

RE: Recreational Border Crossing

So glad I went to Alaska last summer!

RE: Don't come to Massachusetts

September 6 1620 the Mayflower landed in Plymouth. Four of my ancestors were on that little ship.

RE: Don't come to Massachusetts

I do miss having sports to watch.

RE: Hwy 395 North through Oregon and Washington

I don't know why you would abandon 395 through WA. Once you get north of Tri-Cities it's a wide-open four-lane highway as far as Ritzville on I-90. And there's a great rest stop about halfway up with an RV dump.

RE: Anyone canceling trips due to Corona virus?

Cancel RV trips? No. No reason. Flight to Japan in September? That remains to be seen.

RE: Impact of Coronavirus on Parks?

Wildtoad: I agree that handshaking should go the way of typewriters and land line telephones. We should do as the Japanese do and offer a polite bow, instead. Although the elbow bump is kind of amusing. :D

RE: Impact of Coronavirus on Parks?

Compared to hotels, RV camping is the much safer option. Think about it: Not only do you have your own private living space--used by no one else!--but your own cooking facilities, toilet and shower. No reason for campgrounds to close.

RE: Campgrounds on US16 in Big Horn Mtns.

I spent a few nights at Sitting Bull cg, Bighorn NF. on Hwy 16 in late July 2018. It's at 9200 ft. so nice and cool. I got the last campsite, #1, as it is very popular. Very pretty scenery and lots of moose around.

RE: We were shocked to learn our newly purchased TT

My RV has a propane water heater and I turn it on only twice a day when traveling. Only takes half an hour to heat up and plenty of hot water for dishes and shower. 2oldman might be parking too close to his neighbors if their water heater disturbs him. ;)

RE: Towels

Those are very nicely done! :) Like some of the other commenters, I have also switched to microfiber towels. While cotton towels might get dry here in AZ, in the PNW they tend to stay soggy. Bought all mine in the automotive department at Walmart. Sure, they lack the decorative charm of 'real' towels but are a lot more practical. I also cut very thin automotive dept. microfiber towels (the ones that come in bundles) into quarters and use them for dish cloths.

RE: Bleu Ridge Parkway

The Blue Ridge Parkway is fine but some of the access roads are not. Choose wisely.

RE: getting trapped inside a park

The only time I was trapped inside a park was when I had a larger RV and the idiot across from me had his dualie parked in front of his site and I didn't have enough room to get out without driving over the grass. Actually, this happened more than once.

"Bleu Ridge"? Is that somewhere in France? :D

Yes, I replaced mine easily with a standard hardware store model.

RE: Solar energy when battery disconnect is applied

Thanks again, DiploStrat. Yes, I'll contact Jay at Tiger to confirm that for my model.

RE: Solar energy when battery disconnect is applied

Thanks, DiploStrat! I wondered if that was the case and why they would have such a prominent switch for battery disconnect without being able to use it safely. So the red switch will just cut off the loads but the batteries will still be connected to the solar?

RE: Solar energy when battery disconnect is applied

Nah, I'm just going to leave the batteries connected. At the worst, they'll be dead when I get back. They're over five years old (AGMs) and, though they are still good, replacing them wouldn't be a crisis.
mockturtle 02/17/20 06:07pm Tech Issues
RE: Solar energy when battery disconnect is applied

Can you check on the battery once a week or more? Do you have a method to recharge if found dead? Nope. I'll be overseas.
