RE: Truck camper mileage

I used to get around 14 mpg with a one ton Ford diesel. About the same as a medium sized TT.

RE: Gathering parts to refine my solar

The smart thing to do is fuse both runs. From the batteries to the controller use a resetable 40 amp fuse block. It will not "choke" your current at all. From the s panels, use an in line fuse that connects with wc4s. Don't give it a second thought.

RE: New - Buying a Tralier - No Clue What I'm Doing

RVs are used in all kinds of ways. They can be expensive, fuel ineffecient, and expensive to park. Or at the end of their lives, they can be cheap and parked and lived in full time by people with little money.

RE: Need Replacement Microwave

We had the same problem in the house. We just decided not to use a microwave. I never use the one in the trailer either.

RE: Camping with a baby

Little kids have been camping in my family for generations. They become more durable by about 6 months and you can take them everywhere.

RE: Six volt battery question.

Its a toggle switch. Turn your batteries off when not being used. That saves losing all of that pirate voltage. Every once in a while, turn the batteries on and charge them as in every two months or so of non-use.

RE: Mt Rainier

I love Mt Rainier, and have climbed to the summit 4 times. We have not been able to find adequate campgrounds near the mountain for our size of MH. We recently chose to stay at Paradise Lodge with friends and had the RV parked outside so that we could be at 5,000 feet to hike and experience the mountain early in the morning as the sun rises, and as the sun was setting. . . it is a truly magnificent experience. Hi Ron. I tried to climb the Mounatin twice but was turned back by weather both times. I spent a summer at Pack Forest just down the road from the Park.

RE: trailer shade

I use an Easy-Up. It is portable and can be moved where you need it. It helps a lot to have some side curtains for afternoon sun. I use old canvas tipi liners.

RE: New - Buying a Tralier - No Clue What I'm Doing

If you are in Los Angeles go look at some RVs. Dealerships, shows, and the like. Get an idea what is out there. Then get a real tow vehicle and buy used. Don't go too big.

RE: Older Dog and Night time

Dogs defintely shows the signs of aging mentally. They can get disoriented at night, especially if they do not see very well. Don't be surprised by it. I took my last Border Collie backpacking when she was 16. She had some aging issues for sure.

RE: FL Keys in June

I drove to Key West once in August. The coolest temp in a week was 78 at o500. I really enjoyed my time there because it was quiet. The conchs were around and people from the South. Few tourists from New York. I remember watching the tarpon on the incoming tide flashing and being lit up from the lightning. I stayed in an old motel made out of cypress. It was like being in an old movie.

RE: Setting up wdh hitch

Have someone check you setup. If you still have sway, add a sway control bar. It is relatively easy to install and costs around $60.

RE: Dang Squirrels

We had a wet spring this year and have an explosiono of ground squirrels in the yard. They are notorious for getting into houses, so I decided to control them. There is a trap called a 'squirrelanator" that resets itself and really works. I live trap the little buggers and take them out on public land and turn them loose. The first set captured 4.

RE: The Wide Open West - an Example

In the West there used to a lot of small gas stations and motels in remote areas out by themselves. People did not travel as far in a day with the older cars and more primitive roads. Many of those old buildings are still standing but long closed. It is counter intuitive but there are lots of places like Nevada,eastern OR, NE CA, Utah, etc where the facilities are actually further apart today than they used to be. I cannot imagine having a vehicle with a range of 175 miles. A Ford diesel has a stock 35 gallon tank. Running empty the range is well over 700 miles. Pulling a TT I can still go about 450 miles.
