RE: Highway speeds - Keep your distance!

On some busy freeways, leaving four car lengths in front of you means someone will merge in. :D

RE: Possible Canada boarder opening mid August

Hard to be 'hopeful' when the goalposts keep moving. :R There was a time last fall/winter when my next-door neighbors, snowbirds from BC, kept thinking every month they were going to get to go south to their winter home. They'd get their hopes up and no dice. :(

RE: learning about rving

And tent camping is not allowed in some areas of BC where there is bear activity.

RE: learning about rving

My close friend, also a senior female with two dogs, has a Class B Sprinter and it works very well for her. Where I like to camp I sometimes need the high clearance and 4-wheel drive so my Tiger is perfect (and I have only one small dog) but Sprinter Class Bs are easy to rent in Canada, as I have seen many on the road on my trips to Alaska so the suggestion to rent first is a good idea. Good luck and enjoy your travels. :)

RE: No power to outlets when in battery mode.

For charging electronics and running a small fan, I use one of these: Jackery

Just replace the tanks. :)

RE: No power to outlets when in battery mode.

Even with an inverter your A/C would likely not run off batteries. Either plug into electric or get a generator.

RE: Almost lost reservation in AZ park

I agree that they should not be able to do that unless they let you know up front that you could be bumped for a longer-term tenant. Even so, my late husband and I wintered in AZ on an annual basis for about ten years. After he passed away I moved to AZ permanently. Except in the summer, the desert is the perfect place to be, IMO.

RE: Dispersed or lightly used campgrounds - Bighorn NF

Sitting Bull cg is awesome. When I went a couple of years ago, I got the last site (#1, I believe). Lots of moose and bear, beautifully scenic and cool at 8600 ft.

RE: Dispersed or lightly used campgrounds - Bighorn NF

'Lightly used' when referring to campgrounds has lost all meaning this year. Here in UT, I've found that even a lot of dispersed sites are full. Headed for WY next and will be looking for same. Good luck to both of us. :)

RE: Canada barring folks still

If Canada chooses to shoot herself in the foot, far be it from me to interfere. ;) And go Lightning!!!

RE: How important is level with residential fridge

Mine is not a 'residential' fridge but is an all-electric 12V/AC compressor fridge and it doesn't need to be level.

RE: Smaller Holding Tanks...What to do when NO hookups??

In much of the West we conserve water. YMMV.

RE: Smaller Holding Tanks...What to do when NO hookups??

As my grey tank usually fills up before my black tank, I often use a plastic dishpan for washing dishes and pour the dishwater down the toilet.

RE: If you have proof...

Thanks, Canada, but no thanks.

RE: It's hot!

Get the generator fixed is my suggestion. Well, as I said, I couldn't get an appt. until next month but, yes, that's the plan. Just curious as to how other campers here in the West were doing with the heat.

RE: It's hot!

I'm not retired yet, but when I do retire and start RVing for months out of the year, I can guarantee you I won't be RVing in Arizona during summer months! Not when there are so many lovely, cooler boondock sites up north. Isn't that what the RV is for, anyway... so you can MOVE to a better climate? :) Tell me which ones are cooler. Montana is hot and the Canadian border is still closed.

RE: It's hot!

Yuma, what do you expect. Move somewhere cooler. Hawaii is great never too hot and never cold. I'm not home. I never stay in Yuma in the summer. Just sayin' it's hot everywhere in the west.

RE: It's hot!

I can't go home. I live in Yuma! :)
