2750w Solar Panels, I made it...

Posted Yesterday at 09:01 PM by CountryFit
Updated Yesterday at 10:24 PM by CountryFit

How big is too big? In term of solar system, in my opinion, it'll never be too big.

Previously I installed 2160w system over a period of 3 years. I started with 5 Sunpower Grade B, 240w panels; a year later I added 4 Sunpower Grade A 240w panels. In summer time, it outputs a decent amount of electricity to charge my C-Max Energi, a plug-in hybrid as my toad, and batteries. But in winter time, it's merely able to catch up with the demand from the house batteries for daily usage,...

Cloud Launch Imminent!

Posted 12-06-2017 at 05:28 AM by bassgirl (Life in the Cloud)

I've been restoring my '92 Fleetwood Jamboree 27' Searcher Special (re-christened "the Cloud") for the past 2 months. It's been....a learning experience, to be sure, as well as more work than I had ever imagined! I knew it had been neglected for the previous 5 or so years, but as a complete RV newbie, I didn't know about aaaaallll the little things that can go wrong, break, fall apart, mold, etc on one, and I'd never heard the axiom "It's not IF they will leak, but WHEN"....

HI, just thought I would check in and say HI, I just signed up to the site and it sounds like a nice one.

No Smoking Please!

Posted 11-27-2017 at 12:12 PM by Crookedread

I guess you're wondering about the "No Smoking Please" comment.* You might have read about the fires that have been rampaging through the west this summer.* At one point we had fires burning in all directions and could see the flames from the fires at night.* Not as close as many others and we didn't suffer any damage, but the smoke has been overwhelming at times.* Our hearts go out to the many that have suffered losses of loved ones and their property!* Just before the Eclipse, I left...

My Introduction to Slide Outs - Part 2

Posted 11-27-2017 at 12:08 PM by Crookedread

Feb. 25, 26, 27, 2017

After three wonderful but wet days in Phoenix and attending an absolutely beautiful wedding, I set about making a more permanent repair to my power cord that drug for 400 miles. *Our neighbors were a nice couple and I was happy to entertain them with my story about the power cord while in the midst of fixing it. *I also put together a towel with a rope to try drying out the roof of my slide out before retracting. *The idea was to pull the towel across the outside...

My Introduction to Slide Outs - Part 1

Posted 11-27-2017 at 12:06 PM by Crookedread

My Wife and I like to avoid the crowds during the summer months so we travel more during the Spring and Fall months. *This last February, Esther convinced me that it would be better if we sold our Stealth 2312 Toy Hauler and purchased something with a slide out and a separate bedroom. *We have been taking longer trips and not taking the Quads so it made sense to make the change. *Since we were going to a wedding in Phoenix, we decided to see if we could find our next trailer and get it outfitted...

isb won't start fuel delivery problem

Posted 11-05-2017 at 03:59 PM by ladagobago

Many of us have experience a "no start" condition. Often this is a fuel delivery problem after filter change, component change or just a situation where the fuel delivery is air lock the the lift pump just isn't doing it's job well enough.

So currently, this is where I am at with the no start issue. seems as though my fuel is draining back to the tank and I am trying to start a dry fuel delivery. This was found after I tried to start again and no go. I loosened a fitting...

First Blog entry

Posted 10-31-2017 at 05:52 PM by chlondon

Nice! Didn't realize I get a blog with my membership. I will attempt to record our adventures in travel through this blog.

We, my wife and I, decided to go full time RVing about a year ago now. We sold the house and disposed of all our worldly goods except for that which would fit in the RV. We owned a 2005 Coachmen Sports coach which is a class A diesel pusher. It has served us very well for the past year as our home.

Well that is about all for this first post...

The Rest of the Story

Posted 10-30-2017 at 03:20 PM by noeldale

The Rest Of The Story
Back in Michigan and have enjoyed the summer, what we have had of it since we spent 6 weeks in the Arizona heat.

A week after getting home we spent 4 days sitting with a 2 and 4 year old that have much more energy than we do. It was great to spend the time but now we realize that we are a little older than they are.

First trip out since returning was to Tawas Point SP which we both love. Each day was a mile walk out to the point along...
