Thanks for the info.

Of course the primary intent of the vertical tube is to raise the fumes above the RV, so you need to have at least a two section tube so the rigging can be stowed in a bay or wherever. I made mine in three sections for nice compact storage in a duffle bag.

You may be surprised how fast assembly goes. Do it all from the ground, no standing on ladders.

Now comes the confession. In five years, I've only used the dang thing once. We rarely boondock and run the 17kW diesel generator.
We rarely boondock, either. I'm still not convinced we "need" one.

Thanks for the info. I had heard that the propane detectors are sensitive to hairspray, but didn't know about the CO detector. Of course, I never use hairspray...haha.

Happy trails.
Thanks again, Wayne. I have seen that video but still pondering this purchase. Do you have one?

Di... the fires in Idaho have us on a wait and see or McCall Idaho. When I talked to them the other day, they admitted they had smoke... but no fire. The fire is very close to Deb and Dales place. If you were here you'd know all this.... poke poke. What's up with that battery??? We really missed you guys here.

I know it and i wasnt there.... Smile i gots tv... Go back again on Tuesday, for battery check...
It was really hard to not be there, but I am glad you are not going into the smoke....... When we were in Oregon two summers ago, there were minor fires and in one area it was bad. In fact it was the area Herb is going to. The river was closed with the jet boats.....


Scary thing fires....

About three pages later you found out that the Blue and the Stellars Jays are two distinct birds, so I will refrain from mentioning your faux pas.

We drove east through Alnwick, past the Harry Potter/Hogwarts castle, to Seahouses (picturesque but extremely crowded: dang tourists!) and moved on to Craster for sea watching, kippers, and supper.

Attachment 104204

We've been west through Pondicherry, Thropton, Sharperton, Snitter, and Harbottle, almost as far as Barrow Burn. Somehow we missed Tosson. Also missed the recommended tea rooms at Barrow Burn because we didn't carry on far enough. They are reputed to make a splendid bacon sandwich. Darn!

Attachment 104208

This very isolated farmstead is only 10 miles or so from Rothbury, but might as well be 50. The Coquet River is the same river we see from Westcliffe House.

Instead, we had lunch at The Rose and Thistle in Alwinton.

Attachment 104205

Chicken and leek pie with very puffed pastry and vegetarian lasagna. Most offerings accompanied by chips and peas. �� Fat, soft fries, the preferred chips here. Typical pub grub, but not our favorite.

Attachment 104206

The RV park we can see across the valley turned out to be 1,000 park models, plus another 500 in the adjoining park. Not very interesting, eh? Nice manager, though and a pretty location. There was this huge beech tree trunk at the entrance. Our place is somewhere across the valley and up the hillside.

Attachment 104207

Another chapter later, I think. We're beginning to pack for tomorrow's sojourn south. Another map will show you our trajectory.

Beam me up, Scotty!

Are you sure. The rest of this bunch thinks your name is Mike?

I had an answer but liked Tim's much better so all I will add is Ditto
