RE: Finally Common Sense in California (No Shows at Campgrounds)

We've been active campers for about 30-years. Never used to make reservations, but also never had trouble getting a campsite. Times have changed, so we now often reserve sites. Definitely has pros & cons. It's frustrating to see idle resources when there are consumers ready, and willing, to pay for them. Empty campsites during busy times is such a waste. Imagine a generously stocked food buffet, and hungry people anxious to the buy the food, but it's being saved for those that never show up. The food goes wasted and dumped in the trash - - so sad. Empty campsites are the same in my view. Yes, unexpected things happen and some well intentioned campers are unable to arrive as planned, but I believe they are the exception. I think if a reserved site is a no-show, the site should be released the next morning and all fees forfeited (non-refundable). However, convenient systems need to be in place to allow campers to cancel their reservation when something comes up. That's a whole topic all by itself!

RE: CO/LP Detector

I believe that your original "70" series is the only one with a solenoid to cut gas flow. Check to make sure as there could be other series #'s out there that do that as well. I think you're correct. Unfortunately, it looks like the 70 series is unavailable and some of the other series don't have the solenoid. I got sidetracked yesterday because the truck batteries died. I spent time pulling them and cleaning the trays, connectors, brackets, etc. Repainted some of the parts too. Also, good discussion on the characteristics of CO and LP.

CO/LP Detector

I need to replace the CO/LP detector in our camper. The current unit is a Safe-T-Alert 70-742 and I'm having difficulty narrowing in on the proper replacement. Have any of you replaced this same detector? If so, can you share the make & model you used? Thank you!

RE: How to keep a TC from being stolen when not on the truck?

Although rv thefts are rare, it does happen. Since prevention is usually cheaper & easier than fixing a bad outcome, I changed the code on our first camper's remote (similar to customizing a garage door opener). With our current camper, I've been too lazy to do the same. Maybe it's old age creeping up on me.

RE: Roadtrip by car vs RV, a couple of thoughts...

However if you already own the RV the only way to maximize its value is to use it! That's our philosophy too. We've already paid for it; might as well enjoy using it - and we do! A few years back, we stayed in a hotel after not having done so in quite some time. Wow! I had forgotten all the work involved dragging suitcases in and out, packing and unpacking, and limitations on what we'd want to bring along. With the camper, we pretty much bring whatever we want and the stuff is convenient to access whenever needed. We especially enjoy having all the conveniences available during the trip(s) to the desired destination(s). Even if we stop for a burger along the way, we'll usually eat inside the camper and make use of the dinette, restroom, etc. Sure, things could change for us in the future. But, for now, it's the rv all the way.

RE: Flying J / Pilot to install megachargers for med/heavy trks

We own a hybrid that gets 42-mpg and completely love it! It's quiet, economical and a pleasure to drive. Trying to determine where and how everything we own or consume is made, and under what conditions, is beyond my ability. Add on top of that the never ending lies and attempts to manipulate the population, not based on facts, but to accomplish ones own quest for power and money, regardless of reality or the impact on others. Again, that's a lot to sift through! I'm just trying to make it through each work day and put food on the table!

RE: Closer to a head on then you ever want to be...

Desert Captain: Happy to hear you came through this unscathed. Sadly, many don't on a daily basis. My wife and I had a "way too close for comfort" moment a few weeks ago on a local freeway. We were driving in the #3 lane, of a 5 lane stretch of freeway, when someone came off the on-ramp from behind. He shot across all five lanes and nearly clipped the rear drivers side of our car. Their vehicle was moving so fast, and came so close to clipping us (and I mean extremely close), I yelled out to my wife to hang on in some sort of colorful language. I would estimate their speed at well over 100-mph, as they quickly pulled away like we were parked. I was so irritated, I nearly took off after them (out of character, for me!) In the blink of an eye, our lives could have been significantly altered had that car clipped us. It is no different than someone shooting bullets over our heads. Very risky! The behavior of today's drivers is the worst I can recall in all the years on the road. Driving speeds are way too high, enforcement way too low and aggressive tendencies far too common. Between distracted driving, excessive speeds and people driving at night without turning on their headlights, it's amazing we get anywhere in one piece! Be safe, pay attention and say a prayer or two!
