RE: black tank chemicals

I use Aqua-Kem in the little disposable bottles. Ive tried HC and the Porta-Paks but i prefer Aqua-Kem. X2 never had a problem. Put the remnants of the empty bottle mixed with water in the grey tank which works also

RE: Chesapeake Bay bridge and tunnel Maryland

Yes, the only strange things that happened when we used it was shutting off the propane before entering the tunnel/bridge, and the "push" that we felt when a semi passed us going the opposite direction. I expected to be pushed to the side, but instead felt a push from behind! Strange phenomenon

Looking for solar info UPDATE

We are just looking for a small affordable solar system. This would be used to recharge a GRP 31 deep cycle battery ONLY. We just want it for lights and maybe rechargeable items. What would be good for wattage? 100 watts? 50? PWM controller? We will use the generator for all the power hogs onboard. Thx We dont use power hungry items while boondocking, we have LED lighting, and would use propane or campfire for cooking. If we need the A/C we will be in a rv park. We dont want to get an inverter and just want solar to recharge the group 31 deep cycle. We just dont need a lot of solar or the expense of a big system

RE: Toadless car renters

Enterprise rent a car will pick up, and you drive it back to them and they give you a ride back. So.e larger campgrounds have local rental cars onsite too. It usually will state this on the campground website

RE: engine longevity?

The part about low mileage on older model RV's is correct. Bought my 2006 with only 18,000 miles on it in 2015. Now...that being said... it now has 43,000 miles on it

RE: Motorcycle on stock hitch We have a class 3 hitch on our class C and use a motorcycle carrier with a 600lbs max capacity with my wife's Suzuki Boulevard S40 (maybe 450lbs soaking wet) and have gone around 15,000 miles with it so far. No problems at all. I just check it at every gas stop to make sure the anti-wobble device hasn't loosened up.

RE: Make a "Smart" RV ?

Not saying I want to do all the things I listed, but looking for inspiration on maybe doing some projects, etc... I can understand being simplistic, back to basics etc... but remember that the guy in the tent watching you and I pull into a campground with our RV's... might feel that WE are the heretics, etc everyone camps different

Make a "Smart" RV ?

How would you guys go about retrofitting a older old RV into a smart RV?

RE: Cellphone signal booster antenna question

....Call WeBoost (Wilson Electronics) toll free; they have good service reps; get all the answers you can handle.... Unfortunately I did... one rep told me I didnt need a ground plane, another said I did and told me the booster I had wouldn't work with 4G service... until I told him the box states it does work with 3g and 4g networks. I tried calling a third time to also ask about separation of the antennas etc... again not a clear answer

Worst one in the RV, Moki Dugway. On the motorcycle, the road to Chaco Canyon.

Cellphone signal booster antenna question

I have a wilson sleek that I will be using in my RV. It came with the small magnetic "shark fin" style antenna. I know it needs a ground plane to work correctly but my plan is to use a strip of metal attached to my roof with eternabond tape for the antenna to sit on. That way I can still detach it when not in use for the winter months. The profile of the antenna is such that it looks like it will use more of its side profile to get signal instead of straight ahead. So what if I used a 5 inch deep by 12 inch long piece of metal? It would have more of a side profile to reflect the signal onto the side of the antenna. Yes, I understand I could be losing some signal from straight ahead, but I'm ok with that. I'm not an expert but this seems logical. What do you think?

Amorphous solar panels

Can someone explain why they aren't more in use? They seem to be great at still providing power in cloudy situations as opposed to regular monocrystaline or polycrystaline solar panels. I see amorphous panels used in a lot of outside flood lights and small stuff. But not much in the way of larger panels except flexible ones

RE: 5 figure 30 foot

What about a Super C? Big diesel, plenty of storage, and towing capacity? Jayco Seneca comes to mind
