RE: Bunkhouse Feedback

They are all, I believe, entry lines from each of the brands. They all employ similar construction methods, one thing you may want to look at since you are apparently looking at new units is the warranty (which may or may not have a lot of value in itself) and their reputations for service and support, I think in general KZ and Jayco seem to have slightly better reputations for standing behind their products and do happen to offer slightly better warranties.

RE: Outer banks

Best route once you get down to Newport News/Hampton Va is this. 664/168/158 Skip the first three lines on the directions, you will be on 64 merging onto 664. No tolls and you avoid Norfolk and Va bch traffic.

RE: Recommendations for a a route from PA to CO avoiding IL

If you want to check federal law on the subject of firearms transportation 18 USC While I wouldn't disagree on avoiding foreign nations and their draconian laws. You can travel with it, but locked in a separate container from the ammunition for the duration of your transit.

RE: Getting ready to Hit the Road----finally retired

The internet can help and some others will give some reviews for different parks, but these reviews can also be like the reviews for anything from movies to restaurants, namely angry or disappointed folks are more often motivated to leave a review than satisfied people, and some reviews are possibly from the owners. You can also use Google earth to look at a sat view of a park and get an idea of how stacked on each other some parks are. Also a lot of material is now on you tube. Find a park in a given location and check, someone may have done a video on it, and the same can be said for destinations, if you want to visit a recreational area, there are likely a dozen or more rv'ers who have been there and done videos which include where they camped and other information on parks in the area. Happy huntin

RE: moving up to 50 amp from 30

Yes, so long as you are only charging batteries and maybe one AC unit depending on the cord and the outlet (20 amp) that you are plugging into. If your fridge is using AC power from an inverter, it MAY/PROBABLY/USUALLY has an automatic function that switches from inverter usage to run directly from the AC shore power, it that is the case, you likely will not be able to run the air conditioners with the reefer running also from the 20 amp circuit.

RE: Diesel Towing MPG With Ultralight Trailer

Cost will all go down if you just cross a state line. Otherwise, slow down, speed hurts mileage, and if you are retiring, you shouldn't be in a hurry, so slow down and enjoy the trip. Your Eco Boost with a 10 speed is one of the more miserly choices short of getting a half ton with a diesel.

RE: Powering an Oxygen Concentrator

On the other qx, Inverter? you would want at least one rated for 400 watts continuous, 600 watts would be better. And it should be a pure sine wave inverter. Not recommending any of these, just examples, inverters On the controller, you may find it easiest to get a kit from a company such as Renogy which would have the controller included. If you are going to have a total of 400 watts get at least a 40 amp controller to allow an extra panel or two in the future if needed, without having to change the controller. Examples, solar kits

RE: Powering an Oxygen Concentrator

A second pair of 6 volt would be preferable in almost all cases to adding 12 volt batteries, especially if they are not true deep cycle. Do you have access to a Kill-O-watt type meter? It would be helpful to know how much the unit actually draws, not what the power supply is rated for. After getting the meter, track REAL power usage for a day, and then make your decisions on what to buy. But additional batteries and more solar (maybe 300 watts more) certainly wont hurt, The Solar then could slow charge all day with you only needing to run the genny occasionally when you need a boost. Edit add,,,,, Saw CA Traveler post after I posted, and I am mirroring his. The one thing that could reduce your power need somewhat is your comment about (Mostly use at night) Your genny charges fast to bring batteries up to 75 or 80% but getting the last 20% is slow, and thats where the solar really shines. Chances are you can run the genny in the mornings for an hour to make coffee and recharge, and then let the solar finish during the remainder of the day. The meter will help you figure this out.

RE: Campground on river VA/WV/KY

New River is popular with Kayakers for decent white water paddling.

RE: Campground on river VA/WV/KY

Virginia state parks are supposedly all open. Va State parks In particular, you may find new river interesting. As are some COE parks

RE: Why the delay in shipping?

Most likely they don't have the units in stock. Many retailers save overhead by advertising merchandise they don't have, and then waiting until they reach a certain number to achieve a volume threshold, and then they order product to, in turn fill their orders.

RE: Fridge 120 volt

It seems to be somewhat common based on a quick web search. Try this page from a forest river group. forest river Several comments and suggestions. Good luck.

RE: Onboard generators

Since most larger toyhaulers have an option for one, go without initially, using your portable, and you can add it after a year if it seems to be needed. And if your current unit is a 2800 watt Champ, Don't buy another unless you feel you will need to run 2 AC units. The Champ by itself will run a single AC unit.

RE: Azdel or equivalent

FRP Fiber reinforced panel would be my first thought. The panels are available in 4'x8' panels and are totally waterproof. I had them in my car wash for 8 years with no problems. I cant remember what the price was, but they are not cheap, at least the version (white pebble finish) that I had. They are commonly used in commercial kitchens, medical facilities and farms. Maybe this would give you some ideas. Panels They have basically no structural strength, at least in the vervion I used, but there should be others which may work for you. There are also some pvc based products.

RE: TT Suggestions Requested: ~6500lb GVWR

If having a unit be set up for an onboard generator is part of your plan, it's gonna be tough. If you can go with a portable genny in the truck bed on the trips where you need one, your specs become possible. Lance and AF, ORV, all are heavy, as you have seen, to get under 7000 gvwr will take looking elsewhere with your other requirements. To stay to units with better than average reputations for service and (ahem) quality look to the other lines. KZ, Jayco, Grand Design, and Winnebago would be the next set of suggestions, Winnebago for example offers this Minnie look specifically at the 2401 RG The other lines likewise offer similar models. Good luck

RE: 30amp Y Splitter for 2 RV's

Is the breaker panel located somewhere that you could install an additional breaker and wire a temporary feed for the second camper into it?
