RE: Orange County Calif., Loses Another Large Storage Lot

Wasn't that long ago, when the old El Toro Marine base(where tons of RVs were stored)was sold to developers and all the RV owners had to scramble for new storage places. Being in Orange County, it was just a matter of time before that happened. Camp Pendleton is constantly fighting off development. Yep See this Article (El Toro Closing)

RE: Orange County Calif., Loses Another Large Storage Lot

Those that own their own storage condos out here are doing pretty well. That is certainly the exception, not the rule.

Orange County Calif., Loses Another Large Storage Lot

Another one bites the dust. This makes over 2600 RV storage spaces lost in the last 5 years. How many have opened? Zero. Article

RE: Update on the 96 Bounder MH gifted to me

Electricity and I are NOT friends, but it seems that you have too much voltage running through your RV, though that is pretty obvious. There must be another set of batteries, or you have the existing batteries wired incorrectly. Since the meter is pegged at +18 volts, there is something really wrong. RV Wiring Basics

RE: Winter Storage - Cover at Home or Store at Indoor Facillity?

Maybe consider something like this - Bigdoor.com

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Well, I am trying to follow what you intend on doing. I see you cut our two blanks for the door a few pages back. The radius you intend on bending the strips of plywood is going to be difficult as plywood resists bending due to the adhesives used to bond all the layers of wood, i.e., "Plywood". Further, the door will be subject to swelling depending on the weather and humidity. Knowing how you are obsessed with insulation and fitment, you might not be happy with the results. Exterior doors are solid for a reason. They don't swell. They use solid wood, not necessarily plywood. Interior doors can be hollow and skinned with veneer since they are indoors and not subject to the weather. Can it be done the way you intend? Probably, but there are other ways to accomplish your needs that are simpler. For the radius, I would probably use several Maple strips that are laminated and possible steamed to get them to bend without breaking. Then you can use any one of the glues you have tested, however, a simple wood glue will work just fine as it has less viscosity than the foam glues you are playing with now. You could look for guidance under boat building for suggestions on how to make a door with the radius you desire. I think you will find, it is not all that easy.

RE: Scoundrels

I guess the tech was not interested in working with an extended warranty. I believe most warranties require you get prior approval BEFORE the repair is made. Your post was a little hard to follow, but it would seem you hired the tech before approval from Good Sam was received.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

I can agree that this project is "over the top" and has a touch of insanity sprinkled among all the various adhesives and rust proofing products. But there are few who have actually taken it this far. Many others I have followed give up after 6 months of aggravation, blisters and exhausted checking accounts. They mostly end up donating the RV (If they will even take it), and buying a good used RV and go fishing. I believe what he has done thus far is the easy part. Now comes the hard part. Cabinets, wiring, plumbing, flooring, and yes, eventually the mechanics of the RV chassis. It is such a very long road. Kudos to him for taking it this far. Prayers to help him get through the next phase.

RE: Good news... dreaming of BEV Class A

Even with the Tesla cars, many are still like beating up on Tesla even though - 1. They produce the highest safety rated vehicle - CHECK 2. They produce the fastest production vehicle - CHECK 3. They produce the least expensive car to operate - CHECK 4. They produce the highest quality vehicle, so much so they broke the Consumer Reports quality standard (past not present). - CHECK 5. They produce the cleanest operating vehicle - CHECK But yet, many still bash the company. I guess you can't win no matter what.

RE: I got the shakes

Alignment will not cause shaking. Tire wear yes, shaking no. I would suspect first balance, second the rims being out of round or bent. Possibly due to the tires not being mounted correctly or some sort of debris not allowing the rim to be mounted to the vehicle hubs in a perfectly flat position.

RE: Getting very frustrated with this site!

FWIW, the server problems are nothing new. This site has had a funky server for as long as I can been posting here. Not sure why, except this was once a very popular forum, and unless you have run a forum server, you would have a hard time understanding what happens behind the scenes. Cyber attacks happen weekly, spam bots attack daily, idiots get on here posting spam. It is a daily battle I am certain, and almost a full time job. Don't be too hard on the Admin, as keeping a site like this up and running is not easy. Too many outside people/bots/cyber attacks making an Admin's life miserable.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Well, you are over $8300 in costs on this project. And you have not even begun to do the cabinets, plumbing, flooring, seats, couch, AC, heat TV etc. Not to mention the exterior and roof. I am sorry to say, you can probably add another "0" to your costs by the time this gets done. I respect you for what you are doing, and I can tell you are enjoying yourself. Sometimes there is greater value than just dollars and cents (sense). However, at some point, someone has to slap you and make you come to your senses. This project, as noble and entertaining as it is, has no happy outcome. I believe you are a craftsman, but by the time you finish this, you will have a vehicle with virtually no value, and to be perfectly honest, I doubt it will be road worthy. You have not even touched the mechanical aspects, which alone could be as much as you have already spent, never mind the time you have involved. You are free to continue with it. That is your choice. But you need to step back and look at your project and the time and money you have invested. Has it been worth it? Maybe the personal satisfaction you gain has greater value than the balance in your check book. However, you "could" simply buy a decent class C for around 10K and go fishing. Maybe your wife would agree. You should ask her. I wish you all the luck in the world on your endeavor, but honestly, is it really worth it? I think its time to re-evaluate your project. After all, it has been two years and three months, and you still have a very, very long way to go.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

So, for you to complete just the wheel wells (nice job by the way), there were approximately 210 posts detailing this process. Just for the wheel wells. I can only imagine what the posts will be like once you start on the cabinets. I might wait for the Readers Digest version to come out. You are a man of infinite patience. I am tired just from reading your posts, I can only imagine what it must be like to actually do the work, and provide such detailed posts of your journey.

RE: building new campground

No. California is. My dump station "fee" for my project was $142,000. No typo. That was for only 2 dump stations, that were private, not public. My offsite fees were north of $700,000. School fees, TUMF fees, Environmental fees, drainage fees, permit fees, blah, blah, blah. Glad it's over. You have a nice dream, but either you go big and build a substantial project that can amortize the costs over many sites, or go home.
