RE: SUV for pulling hybrid

You def don't want an SUV. I full-time in my '02 Thor 18DT hybrid (5300#) and tow with an '02 GMC Yukon XL. Below the Yukon's 7800# tow capacity but payload is close to max.

older a/c smelly issue

I have a 2002 Thor 18DT with a Dometic 57915C a/c unit, which I believe is the original. Recently, there has been a musty smell when I turn on the a/c. The interior filter seems OK. Is there a filter that needs to be changed from the roof?

RE: Pay or No Pay?

I agree with you, tapiper. I've been workamping for 7 years now and always take the type A jobs. If the goal is to make money, that's the route. I suppose if you're retired and can't figure out how to occupy your free time, a type B gig would be appealing ;)

RE: Anyone had experience with Bluetti lion power stations?

Had you ever experienced charging "it" in near 32F conditions? The coldest it got in my trailer last winter was 40F. No problems with the AC200.

RE: Anyone had experience with Bluetti lion power stations?

I bought an AC200 back in November. I got the pre-production price of $999. I've been using it to full-time ever since, although in a travel trailer, not a truck camper. No problems with bumpy travel. It's hooked up to a 350 W solar panel, which charges it from the teens to 100% by the mid-afternoon. Except in winter. I was at Imperial Dam and from Dec-Jan, it would need a boost from the genny. But that was running a mattress pad heater all night, too, so I would be down to 10-15% by the AM. For me, it's perfect. I can run my desktop computer, my espresso machine, water kettle, rice cooker, etc. No regrets to this purchase.

RE: Up grade my AC thermostat.

Not a nest but a digital, programmable Honeywell, battery operated. Great improvement.

RE: Traveling in 23 ft trailer with cat

I've been full-timing with my cat for over 6 years now. I use a harness from Crazy K Farms- the yellow reflective one. Coupled with a retractable style leash, it allows the cat to spend lots of time outside with me. You won't be able to walk a cat like a dog, but cats like to explore. Just be prepared for those periods when he'll just sit and look around. I bring my Paperwhite.

RE: Oil rubbed bronze Handheld Showerhead

I went to the link provided for the cheapo showerhead and see that it's the one I bought in 8/17. Still going strong and I full-time, so can recommend it. Not sure how it compares to water usage compared to the oxygenics, though.

RE: summer in a national forest

Wow. Where do I start? I just wanted to let people be aware of our hiring. Many workampers are looking for jobs. I believe this one is a fairly high paying gig. I wasn't aware that I had to list all of the Covid precautions we are taking. But we are in accordance with the AZ health dept. restaurant guidelines. In addition, kitchen staff doesn't even come in contact with customers. Also, I don't understand how the thread got to a discussion of vaccines. That appears to be against this forums rules. And as far as my handle bothering people- are you kidding me? I joined in 2010- that's ten years ago. At that time, I was hoping to retire in Paris. It didn't happen. I didn't bother to change my forum name because, who in the world would care? For someone to read something ominous and un-American into that is ridiculous. And as executive chef, it falls on me to do the hiring. Anyway, I am trying to get the mods to delete this post. I apologize for offending all of you, but, again, I just thought people would want to know about a good paying job for workampers, in the workamper forum. My bad.

RE: Toad or No Toad ?- Grand Canyon road trip in a 23' class A

Can't answer your question but I'm very jealous of a Grand Canyon trip in a restored GMC!

summer in a national forest

Are you a van dweller? Own an RV? Needed a reason to get one? Spend the summer in the cool mountains of northern Arizona! We’re hiring two to three people (couple or singles) to work in the newly remodeled kitchen of our BBQ & pizza restaurant. Start as early as March, stay as long as 12/15 (possibly year-round, if that’s what you want). Will train. You get a full hook-up site, shift meal, and pay for all hours worked. We pay all cooks $20 an hour plus a share of the tips. During the season, we’ll be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner 7 days a week, so your work hours are flexible. Looking for those who can work 30-40 hours per week. With a brand new menu, new equipment, and new chef, come work at Happy Jack Lodge in the Coconino National Forest, 40 minutes south of Flagstaff. Near Sedona, the Grand Canyon, and less than two hours from Phoenix. Hunt elk, deer and turkey. Fishing nearby. Fantastic hiking at the Mongollan Rim. The new menu is designed to be as easy to serve as possible. Because of the Covid restrictions, we serve to-go only and will be continuing that even after the crisis is over. My name is John and I am the new executive chef. I’m at the Imperial Dam LTVA until late February, so send me a PM if you are interested and I’ll answer all your questions. I'm doing the hiring, so please do not call the Lodge. They'll just tell you to contact me.

RE: inexpensive panels

I bought a 350 watt panel and a 25' cord extension from them. Powers my Bluetti AC200 wonderfully. I found them knowledgeable about their products. Took a drive from Imperial dam LTVA to get it- worth it.

Sleeping in my hybrid takes me back to sleeping on the porch during the summer at the cottage in the Thousand Islands. I full-time in one (for 3 years now- before that in a pop-up)and haven't seen any leak/maintenance issues that would be attributable to the hybrid form.

RE: Pulling Travel Trailer in Colorado with Tahoe

Also, I got a Bluetooth OBD reader that plugs into the port. I use an old phone (cracked screen) to display a gauge set including trans temp. Cheap way to have a full gauge set.
