  1. Ironic that you bring this up at this time. A couple of weeks ago we were camping in the mountains of VA with some friends and enjoyed a really nice fire each day as did several folks in the near vicinity. One evening, the wind picked up tremendously while I was laying in bed and I started to wonder about all the hot coals from all the campfires being blown about. That got me to thinking about the chance of a fire breaking out in the surrounding forested areas. I was pondering the need for an immediate escape plan. Nothing came of the wind but the potential is always there in every camping situation that an emergency departure might become a reality. To that end, we're going to develop and execute a quick escape procedure.
  2. Everytime I log in, I get a message that the forum has detected that I'm logging in from a "new device". Same computer I've used for years. Why this notice each time I log in now?
  3. In a previous life, I transported very sensitive materials all around the world for a federal agency and never have I seen packaging as "bomb proof" as Foy's. I recently opened a drawer assembly he sent us and it probably took longer for me to unpackage the drawer parts than it did for him to actually produce the packaged items. Unbelievable. You know before you even get to the actual contents that this is going to be a quality product. Thanks Foy.
  4. I do the cleaning of our composting toilet and have never seen any evidence of urine getting mixed in with the compost. Neither my wife nor I seem to have an aiming issue. Let's for a moment suppose that a little urine does go into the compost; so what? There is no smell from the intended waste that normally goes into the compost pot, so why would I worry about a little urine getting in there too? We love the composting toilet. No black water to have to deal with. When we get home from a trip, I simply run the grey water out on the ground from a ground pipe I installed in our storage barn. No muss, no fuss. Had to borrow a section of hose from a fellow camper one time to reach the drain pipe at our campsite. He lent me a section of some of his blackwater hose. DISGUSTING!!
  5. I put wax on ours (candle type wax, not car wax) and it has helped immensely. Simple fix.
  6. I know you're not picking up your Ollie until December, but in the meantime, how are you liking your F350 gasser? That is exactly the combination I'm thinking of as a replacement for the Dodge 3500 Megacab diesel I just sold.
  7. Might want to check to see if there is some debris in the channel at the top of the frame where the fabric meets it. There is a little trough there. Maybe somethings is wedged in there.
  8. Looks like you have both the clear glass AND a camera. Nice setup.
  9. We use the collar lock shown above with an ABUS lock. https://www.taylorsecurity.com/abus-20/80-diskus-padlock/0021102/?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIx5vzoLC88AIVnP7jBx0i1QrmEAYYAyABEgJSgvD_BwE The ABUS lock is German made and has been tested to be one of the very hardest/ most difficult locks to pick. Other similar locks take only seconds to pick by someone who knows what they're doing. I use an ABUS lock when it counts.
  10. Sounds like a line has completely severed. I would start with the simple and look under the curb side bed for any obvious leak. Odds are you only have one leak somewhere but it's enough to flood the basement where the scuppers are allowing it to release. I wouldn't panic. Also, just curious as to whether you are using a pressure regulator on the incoming water? Keep us informed. 2 Hobos (Paul)
  11. I like your tether better than the ones I'm making. If available, I might pick one up from you at the non-rally. 2 Hobos will be parked in row D.
  12. Thanks Bill: Good point. In fact, I am working on tethering lots of things on "2 Hobos" as we speak. Just yesterday, I tethered the lock pin for the hitch to the frame, I tethered the pins for my hydraulic jacks to the body of the jacks, and next is the access cover to the propane lid. I'm working an issue with Mopeka (propane level sensors) right now so have the occasion to remove the cover multiple times. I have one sensor that wants to read 7% (empty) about 90% of the time even after re-doing everything several times.
  13. Just a little fly-in-the-ointment, please realize that at the end of a particular model year, as supplies run out of select items that are destined to be upgraded in the next year model, some of the next year upgrades may appear in the last few previous year models produced. We have the last 2018 produced and I believe there are a couple of 2019 features included. These would generally be minor changes though.
  14. John, If you drop anchor here in Berryville, you can simply drive east of us for about 35-40 minutes and get on the metro rail system that will take you right into DC. No traffic or parking worries. For that matter, if we're around, I'd be glad to take you into the metro stop and pick you up whenever you got back. You also need to visit the Smithsonian's Air and Space museum complex on the grounds of Dulles Airport. IAD is a easy drive from here. It's about 15 miles west of DC lodged between us and the District.
  15. Raspy, When you're in VA this fall, you're more than welcome to drop anchor at our place in Berryville, VA (close to Winchester, VA right off of Interstate 81). We have water and 30 AMP service available. We're located on over 3 acres which borders two farms so you have lots of privacy. Huge firepit too. Would LOVE to see your rig. We have a 12 X 28 concrete pad in front of the barn where we store Hobo or you can park in the grass closer to the firepit if you want. We'll be gone a good portion of September but the offer is good even if we're gone. Only six homes in the neighborhood and no one can even see you when you're on the property. Hobo (Paul and Donna) Hull 414.
