RE: Considering Travel Nursing

I've met two nurses on the Alcan that were doing it. They came to Alaska during the summer for six months and then went south to warmer climes for other six months. Most of the time they were working three or four day weeks. They were enjoying it. Bill

RE: Cleaning solar panels on an RV

OK, for those that clean them, do you notice any performance differences afterwards? And, yes I realize that from one day to the next, the sunlight isn't going to be exactly the same. Bill

Cleaning solar panels on an RV

How many of you clean your solar panels? If you do, how often? Do you just turn a hose on them or do you actually clean them? Bill

RE: Canada border crossing

Except for some crazy Alaskans trying to get home, who else would drive that route at this time of year?? :W Hey! It's spring time out there and the weather is very nice. If it wasn't for being in quarantine myself for just returning home, I'd be out there enjoying it. Bill

RE: Canada border crossing

Last week I saw a posting on an "Alaskan" website a person made from Fort Nelson as he was headed north. He had Alaska plates on his truck and an Alaska Driver's License. He said at the Canadian border they let him thru with no problems at all. He just told them he was headed home. Bill

What is the coldest temp you've started your Honda 2000 in?

I will probably have to use mine in a while in some -35F temps. I've used it before at -20F, but I pulled it out of a warm truck and it started just fine. This time, if I have to do, it will be outside for at least 24 hours before I attempt to start it. It does have Rotella 5-40W synthetic in it. Bill

RE: What is a good camp stove to buy now days?

If you have the room, go with a Camp Chef. They have the best burners going. Bill

RE: Propane vs Electric Heating

Are you living in your RV full time and staying in one place where they're metering your electrical use? If they aren't metering it, then use the electric heaters. Bill

RE: Low Water Pressure

As said, clean the filters on the end of the faucet nozzle - they screw off. Also there should be a filter on the intake side of the water pump. And check where the pressure regulator screws on. Sometimes there's one of those garden hose style wire mesh screens there which you might not have seen. Bill

RE: water pump

Check under the refrigerator. They love to stuff things into that space. Bill

RE: Will snow damage your average toy hauler roof?

You'll probably do more damage with the shovel than the snow will. I don't worry about my TT or MH. Bill

RE: Leave it on or take it off

My heavy TC stayed on the truck from the first time I used it in the spring until snow came in the fall and I needed the truck for snow plowing. I did this for about 15 years and I never noticed any harm to truck leaving it on all summer. When it was taken off it was stored on two stacks of good pallets with a sheet of plywood on top and the jacks down for stabilization. Bill

RE: Solar panels

It depends on so many variables: Where you camp - cloudy winter northwest to sunny Arizona What time of year - is the sun up high or way down on the horizon How much TV do you watch, how much music time Are you going to use the microwave to heat a cup of coffee on batteries Do you like lots of lights on at night Do you run the ceiling fans Is it cool out and the furnace blower is working, two furnaces? Lots and lots of variables. An extra couple of panels costs very little overall. The big part of solar is figuring how you're going to install it, where to put the monitors and run the wiring. A little bit larger controller for three or four panels is almost nothing. If your going to go through the exercise, take an extra couple of hours and install three our four panels. (Solar is like horsepower, you never have too much and solar is cheaper than horsepower.) Bill

RE: Renting an RV in Alaska

PA12DRIVER has it right - things will be closing up very shortly after the Labor Day weekend. If you like to stay in RV parks most of them will be closed early in the month. However, having said that, if you rent a unit with a generator, Alaska has a lot more places to just camp on your own than other states if you watch your tanks and propane for heat. The gas stations will be open. And as he said, snow will/could be a problem. I live in Anchorage now days but always head north to go moose hunting. Going up isn't a problem, but coming back south we usually have snow. Sometimes it only lasts a day or two and other times it lasts for the winter. The main problem is wherever you go, you're going to have to travel the higher passes to get there. So while the main places like Anch, Kenai, Seward, Valdez, Fairbanks and so on are mostly at lower elevations, you're going to have to travel the higher elevations to get between them. I'd plan on being back in the Anch area by the second week in Sept unless your schedule is very flexible. These were taken on Sept 25th. Note the chains on the tractor - I spun out on one of the hills. Bill

RE: Extender Gas Cans

If the Honda 2000 is sitting in the truck bed and the external fuel tank is on the ground, is the Honda fuel pump capable of raising the fuel that far? Bill

RE: A Question Are you limited to life on pavement

I've had our 40 ft DP down more dirt roads than most people. See the rig in my signature. Bill

RE: Microwaves on inverters.

I have four Trojan T125 batteries and a 2000W inverter and often use our 1200W microwave to warm food for lunch or a cup of hot water, usually for no linger than four minutes at a time with no problems. Bill
