RE: Alaska - 2023

Is Canada open for tourism yet? We had planned to do the Maritimes a couple years ago before the border closed. That sounds like one awesome trip!!!

RE: RV registration in SD

When I lived close to the Ohio, West Virgina border many WV residents would register their vehicles in Ohio to avoid the WV personal property tax. When WV finally caught onto this there was a big push to identify these residents, and when found, a hefty fine was the result. Does AZ have a personal property tax you're trying to avoid? If so I would be very careful, but if another reason, why not.

RE: Waste water totes for fresh water

Don't know exactly what you're looking for, but Rural King(if there are any near you) has a 35 gallon stand alone tank with the fill on top and a 2" drain on the bottom. Has no wheels, but would'nt take up much room in the back of a pick up. Search "ace roto mold". Maybe Tractor supply also. GaryOh Forgot-Rural king price about a hundred bucks, Tractor Supply a little more

RE: Booger welded some stuff on the rig today..

You call that welding???? You've got to be kidding!!! ;) No, seriously that is at least a hundred times better than I could do. I'm kind of like you(except for having no welding skills). If I can do it myself I'll do it, and who cares what it looks like. It works for me, and that's what counts. Good job. Gary

RE: Renting out your RV

When I bought our motorhome and called for insurance, the first thing the agent said to me was that if I rented it that I was not covered. If I had plans to rent it I would need to find another company.

RE: stuck dump valve

on my 2019 reflection the black tank valve is stuck closed, there is nothing in the tank except the a few cups of water and plumbing antifreeze from dewinterizing yesterday, but the valve does not move at all, anyone know a way without opening up the underbelly to get this freed up? My story might be different than what you have but on our 2001 alpenlite and after a few winters in Az the rod was getting very hard to pull and push so after emptying the black tank I poured cooking oil in the toilet and let it sit over night and then it worked perfect. had to do every couple of years. Might give it a try. Bottles have gotten smaller so maybe more is better. chevmanInteresting :h How much do you use?(cup,quart,gallon?) and how big is your tank?

RE: Portable Gen Wireless Start Questions

I was excited when I bought my 3400W remote start. I thought all my problems were solved. I could just press a button, run the AC or microwave, crawl in bed after a good meal, watch TV for awhile, then press a button to turn off the generator and go to sleep. NOT! I left the power switch on for one night and the battery was dead as a door nail the next morning. Now I go outside to turn it off and on. The remote dongle lives in a drawer. Be careful not to drain her chassis battery.I think the original battery may not be that great. I now routinely leave the battery switch in the on position while camping and have had no problems. Sometimes, I'll shut it off if I'm in the area during the day, but I don't go out of my way to do it.I assume you replaced the original battery. With what? Did you go with the same size or a larger one? Gary

RE: Portable Gen Wireless Start Questions

Westinghouse also has one. i-gen Like the champs and others, it's a chinese knockoff of honda or Yamaha equipment.I have this model. To use the remote start you have to turn the battery switch, or button on(the red one at the top left on the panel). If left on too long, like overnight, the battery goes dead. So then you have to start it manually. So whenever I want to start it remotely I have to go out and flip the battery switch on. Kind of defeats the purpose of a remote starter. I think I saw some place where you could replace the original battery with a larger one, but I haven't had time yet to look into that. Gary

RE: Rant - getting someone to work on a Class C motorhome

I have a chevy C also. Wanted to change from SAE oil to full synthetic and stopped at the local Chevy dealer to ask about doing that. Got the same answer you did, they don't have a lift that could handle it. Asked where I could have any work done if needed and he pointed down the street to a truck repair shop. Gary

stroke of genius???

Oh great! I guess it could be called a lack of preparedness. But sitting in the trailer watching the sleet and ice fall, realizing that now they are calling for 6"-9" of snow (where just a few hours ago they were saying just a period of freezing rain for our area), I realized that one of the propane tanks was empty and the other less than half full. Also hardly any food in here. Extremely limited water. I do have a small ceramic heater, but they're saying that there will probably be power outages. The roads are virtually unpassable due to the ice buildup, but probably wouldn't do any good as most of the stores(including the propane dealer) have closed early. No TV reception and the radio just works a little. What was I going to do?? Then the stroke of genius hit! :SI'm just going to open the door, walk(or slide) across the driveway, go in the house and sit by the wood stove and see what DW is planning for supper tonight :W:W. Praying all of you in the storm area will be safe and warm. Gary

RE: pocket knife

redcatcher, you're right on not carrying the p-38 in your pocket. I probably learned the same way you did-experience. And it only took 1 lesson

RE: pocket knife

Carried one thru the Nam and still to this day.garmp, what was the knife called, a pocket knife, I'm guessing it was Vietnam era, that was metal on both sides(possibly stainless) and had multiple blades etc. Sort of a swiss army knife, but it was US military I believe. I have a couple around here somewhere. I think it was known by a number but I can't rememeber it. Also just thought of the little canopener about an inch long with a hook on one end that was known by a number. Do you remember what it was. Gary

pocket knife

Just thinking, Do you remember when everybody carried a pocket knife(pen knife)? There was always a need for one. I remember as an older teen that I had to have one, my dad always carried one, along with just about every other man older than me. Probably most younger folks don't even know what one is. Or if they do carry one they would probably be arrested for carrying a concealed weapon. Just reminiscing. Gary

RE: 2003 Lance 845 rear bumper damaged

If it were me I would probably start with some phone calls. One might be to Outdoor Express, Falling Waters, VA. I had a Lance a few years ago and talked to a Lance factory rep and he called Outdoor express Lance's east coast body shop. Possibly The Truck Camper warehouse in New Hampshire. Or even call the Lance factory in California. I think there's a Lance owners forum, which you could link from Lance's homepage. Maybe ask on that forum. I'd try some of these-maybe you can get a direction to start. Also if you could post some pictures and we could see the damage you might get some advice. Gary

RE: What I like about tent camping

I was going to have my wife answer that question-What I like about tent camping. Her answer-Nothing, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING, ABSOLUTELY POSITIVELY FOR SURE NOTHING!!!!!! I had always tent camped. When we first got married I borrowed my parents popup for a weekend(luxury for me) She informed me when we got home that she would 'camp' with me but only if she had a microwave, bathroom and a real bed to sleep in. Good thing she was really hot and had many, many other great qualities. :B
