RE: Closing campgrounds and no where to go

As of Friday, March 27th both Tennessee & Virginia are closing their state park campgrounds. I was hoping to wait a couple of weeks before heading to NY, but I'll be hitting a couple of KOAs and be hunkering down at home on Monday.

RE: Well, They gone and done it

My last haircut was a buzz with a #3 comb, so while it is starting to look a bit shabby, it will be a long time before it is getting into my eyes!

RE: Glacier National Park Info

One "Must See" (Well, must taste) is a visit to the Polebridge Mercantile outside the west side of the park. A bit of a drive, but the best sticky buns & cinnamon rolls ever! width=640

RE: New satellites are messing up our night sky

I was at the Imperial Dam LTVA last week and took a few night sky photos. While I have no proof that Musk's satellites are in the picture, in years of taking star photos, this is the first time I've seen the short streaks. The long diagonal streak is an airplane. A full size jpg of the image is here. (7.4MB) width=640

RE: Norcold 1200 operates without ground connected

Do you have copper propane piping? One of my refrigerators ran on the hot & the propane copper pipe until the broken ground was discovered.

RE: AZ recommendations

2X or 3X on Dead Horse Ranch State Park, although they have water & electric sites - no sewer.

RE: Best area to boondock in Quartzsite for two nights

The closest to town are the Long Term Visitor Areas La Posa West & East, however they have a minimum of 14 days for $40.00. There are a couple of 14 day free camping areas 2 - 5 miles outside the town on 95 North & South, as well as Dome Rock about 4 miles west.

RE: Tips for California early April RV trip

Depending on your route, another dry campground that has interesting backdrops for the campsites & some nice hikes is Red Rock Canyon State Park in California near Cantil. Some of my photos of the park.

RE: Where are you guys/gals getting your battery cables?

Never used them, but I bookmarked this place after a similar question a few years ago. They don't seem to have a minimum length. Link 2X. I have used the above supplier (Genuine DealZ) for battery & inverter cables a couple of times. Fast shipping, cables to order.

RE: Thinking a Battery Monitor.............

Another vote for the Victron 712. I also use one of their 100/30 solar controllers. A great combination.

RE: Wilson sleek install hints?

Pay attention to the antenna spacing requirements. The modern dual antenna systems automatically turn down the power to prevent feedback between the antennas. Too close vertically or horizontally & you will get very little gain from the system.

RE: Imperial Dam LTVA

A little late for your schedule, but over the last 4 years I have spent a week or two at Imperial Dam, and the rest of the winter at the Quartzsite LTVAs (usually La Posa West). Quartzsite has a bunch of restaurants, activities, junk booths, and, of course, the big tent show in mid January. I agree that there isn't a lot to do at Imperial Dam, but that is one of its perks. I spend time reading & relaxing. They have a great library. Morning exercise activities at the gravel pit pavilion, as well as Sunday afternoon music jams. About 25 miles to Yuma for shopping. Since the same LTVA permit can be used at any of the LTVAs, moving between them is a great option.

RE: Atwood furnace not igniting

Got the same sail switch problem. 2019 jayco. Atwood furnace gas valve won’t open. Shut it down. Removed cover (no door). Tapped on sail switch lightly. Reset and powered thermostat. Works fine for about 3 weeks. Just happened again. Do I have to remove the whole furnace to change sail switch. It has the new design. Bought another new furnace. It has the old design sail switch. What’s the problem with the sail switch. Jayco is new. New sail switch is located in blower outlet housing, old style is in combustion blower housing. Why the change in locations?One sail switch problem many Escape Fiberglass trailer owners have been having with the Atwood AFSAD12 furnace is pet hair jamming the switch. Rather than replacing it, carefully removing the accumulation has fixed it. The newer installations include an outside door that provides access to both the electronics & sail switch. Older models require pulling the furnace for either.

RE: Washington State

What about the Palouse Falls park, that's on my list for summer.Very definitely worth a stop. Since there was no host, I ended up in the host site (full hookups) for a couple of days. The only problem with the site is I became a host - tough when you don't know much about the area! The designated sites are for small Class B or tents, but there is a large parking lot next to the host site that provides dry camping space. It has been awhile since I visited - 2014, so things may have changed. As to summer - it may be hot. I was there in May and it was warm, some friends hit it in July & it was in the 100's. More photos. width=640

RE: Garmin GPS

Don't mean to hijack, but while talking GPS, notice the info on campgrounds list Nat, State, and Private campgrounds. Does the info on the 770 or 780 on campgrounds near your route also include Nat Forest, COE, or/and BLM campgrounds? If your Garmin does not include non commercial campgrounds (some models do, others don't) you can add them using the Ultimate Public Campgrounds POI List.

RE: rt 81

If you are asking about I 81, it is an interstate - no bridge problems.
