RE: Stewards Volunteers are no longer allowed

Thank you, nayther In California it's very limited to where you can go off roading. In many other states it's promoted. But not in California and we're loosing more ground every year. I've been looking at moving to Utah where OHV is actually welcome and encouraged.

RE: Off Road Riding Spots (with coordinates)

Great post Nayter I used to love to ride the other side where it's all fenced off now for the "tortoises" . Kind of like the Barstow to Vegas corridor that Senator Dianne Feinstein closed down ~ said to protect the "tortoises" but then.... U.S Army used it for Tank Maneuers? You learn a lot when you're D37 DLO, most of it is not good.

RE: Off Road Riding Spots (with coordinates)

At some point in time the enviromist are going to say their ruining the desert. I'm suprized that their's not one for Norm I haven't been to the site for a couple of years. sure is one for Norm, his old linemens boots are set in concrete. The site of the monument is on land that was acquired by an energy development company as mitigation repayment land for contiguous plots elsewhere that they developed solar on. This land is then given to Fish and Game to manage (tortoise) but they don't have resources to manage it so they grant it to an outside foundation (can't remember their name but met with their director) and they manage the land, taking much for the tortoise and closing it but also allowing recreation on non-tortoise land (hills in particular). When we spoke I was assured that the Memorial was not going to be touched. Sorry for the long post but I think it's safe

RE: Stewards Volunteers are no longer allowed

Stewards of The Sequoia has been in existence for many years. USFS encourages volunteerism to help maintain motorized and non-motorized trails (most in the forest are multi-use). I have supported Stewards financially many times. Met a ranger at Kennedy Meadows two years ago, he was very vocal about getting help but when I brought up Stewards and their upcoming work weekends, he didn't bite, I could tell there was some bad blood somewhere. The Executive Director is Chris Horgan, a VERY passionate trail user with an extensive background in trail maintenance to the point that he's come up with mitigation measures that were ground breaking. Every winter countless trees and limbs fall and block trails and if not removed new non-authorized trails emerge as users bypass the fallen debris, some of these trees are very tall/long necessitating a long misguided trail that may damage sensitive habitat, Stewards go out every spring and clear these snags to keep the trails open. Chris has been very vocal about the travel management plans proposed and in particular the "1/2 mile" buffer from the PCT, with the limited amount of non-wilderness land that buffer is just not possible, there are already way too many trails that do not connect, forcing users to double back, adding double the use. Chris' mention of "freedom of speech" is that Stewards, and he, are being singled out since they stand up to the bullying tactics of the USFS (they'd rather shut ALL trails off to motorized access, reducing use and maintenance. I too would be interested to hear how the ranger can justify denying trail maintenance access to a qualified group, that should not be allowed.

RE: Off Road Riding Spots (with coordinates)

Just FYI for those of you that don't have a GPS you can just use google it'll map it out for you. Just enter the GPS Coordinates like this N 35 12.951 W 117.059 The H U S K Y M O N U M E N T It gets bigger and bigger every time we ride out there. I can't believe how much it's grown just in the past 10-15 years. Pretty inspiring. I'm just disappointed that there are so many "non-desert" memorials there, even one for a Harley rider, no mention of OHV. Originally this was more of a collection of memorials for fallen desert racers like the original memorial for Erickson, guys like Norm Stewart (instrumental in District 37 desert racing for YEARS, and Mike "Downhill" Alexander, a well known fast guy and many others from various clubs and non-club members. I'm not saying it should be limited to bikes but more directly to OHV users. I personally have set three or four for fallen Viewfinders, actually built one myself.

RE: We are gonna go camping!

I’m starting day two of shelter in place in Sonoma County CA. They’re encouraging outdoor activity just keep your distance. Have a blast on your trip! Yes but they've closed state campgrounds, where does that fit into the "guidelines" and revoked all race permits for the desert, the wide open desert!

RE: tow vehicle advice

at 15k Gross I wouldn't hesitate to pull it with a single wheel 3/4 ton but you should check tongue weight and axle/tire capacities and compare with tongue weight plus whatever you're carrying including passengers, fuel etc. Load it up in "as ready to go" condition and take it to a CAT scale for front/rear TV axle weights. and overall weight, though I'd not be too worried about trailer axle weights since it's triple axle and "only" 30'

RE: Rasor OHV trip.

Thanks Ricky. I've ridden through there on the LA B 2 V dual sport a few years ago and was at several meetings with BLM when they were considering solar farm nearby, never actually gone there though. The vast Mojave Preserve is thanks to former Senator Alan Cranston and then Diane Feinstein perpetuated it when she took office as a "legacy" to Cranston.

RE: Rasor OHV trip.

how large an "open" area is Razor? I know it connects to a lot of trails that are in limited use and then there's the Mojave Preserve where there are only a few cherry stem trails.

RE: Electrical help

to the OP, there should be a breaker labeled "conv." or similar for the converter. Turn it off and plug in the trailer. if there are no problems then It's your converter, replace it; it's a simple job. talk to Randy He'll set you straight.

RE: Drop down bed extension

if the vertical legs don't go down close to the floor then you're going to need more than just "extensions" you'll need longer drive chains and relocate the stop switches. I'm sure you can buy the parts and convert it but it will take some work and not sure if there's backer in place below the current legs.

RE: assist for toy hauler rear door

a winch will take some engineering and a pulley system unless you mount it from the ceiling the angle will be past center and it won't work. First would be to try additional counter-weight via springs. What is the model of the TH?

RE: insulation on a 28 ft all aluminum

You need to ask WHERE the extra insulation is. The roof and walls are only so thick, so, unless they upgrade the quality of the insulation, you won't gain any benefit there. Extra insulation in the floor and for the tanks is a different story. Ask a lot of questions from the manufacturer, not the dealer, before you pay for something you may not need. if they use higher "K" value insulation it would be better, should not be a big add. If they're adding underbelly insulation as someone suggested that would be more $$

RE: Newbie To Full Tine

If you don't really know what you want buying used is a very good start. Depreciation on new RV's is staggering. You don't want to buy new, then decide one or two years later you want something else, you'll really get hosed on trade in or sales. Be careful on financing too, 15 years is common and you'll end up paying twice the purchase price (about) when all is said and done. WELCOME to RV'g!

RE: Weekend Warrior Red LED Side Marker replacement?

I have a local independent shop I use and they carry EVERYTHING RV. He was an early adopter of LEDs. The side marker lights are plentiful and look very similar. I lost a lens on one on my new trailer, took another in to match and still almost bought the wrong one. What's their contact information? Benlo RV

Is that one LED? I don't think 2008 came standard with LEDs, too old.
