Bounder: Guess there's no Bounder problems!

Well Folks,

Haven't heard any problems or solutions on the Bounder subgroup, for a while. Isn't it nice to know we have near perfect Class As?
I just installed a 150psi 2 gal. air compressor and a 50' automatic return reel of 3/8" air hose in a storage bay. The 1000 watt inverter installation for my front TV, dome sat, and receiver was easy and just went to Olema, CA by Point Reyes Lighthouse for a week of seafood and the oysters were the best. Retired life is great.....shucks, being alive can't be beat.
Taken any trips lately?

Hi pilot737,

When I went to gas stations or truck stops, it was usually a time consuming wait or hard to fit a 36' RV next to an air source. Another problem is, tires are to be checked cold so how do you do that on the road with warm tires? I now check tires and air up before a trip or when Iím ready to hit the road before I leave a campground.
My Bounder has a lot of storage room and weight carrying capacity for the air compressor and hose etc. so no problem there.

I'm with you General, my '05 Bounder on WH W20 chassis has had no problems. And, I think I'm one of the few folks that has a Norcold 1201 LRIM reefer that works and hasn't blown up!

I have had all the re-calls done on the chassis and reefer though

Warning.. thread hijack..

Good stuff.. Olema is pretty close by and my B-I-L likes to camp there. As close as I am, I have never been to Pt. Reyes. That has to be on a bucket list.. but, I'm too dang cheap/conservative to pay their rates at that park

Hey Bill,

You can call Olema RV resort and ask for discounts. 800-655-2267.
They also have 26 Full hookups and fire pits at each site. Nice to cozy-up, to B-I-L, by the romantic fire.
The lighthouse, beaches, towns and oyster farms with built-in BBQ's for oysters or whatever plus a little adult beverage make the area a fantastic journey in September and any time of the year.
"Be there or be square."

What 150 PSI Compressor

I've been shopping for just such a compressor. I almost bought one today but decided to wait a week and see what else was available. I would appreciate whatever advice you got.

Thanks,
Muddypaws

Muddypaws,

Go to home Depot and Look at these two great compressors:
Model H1503TP
http://www.homedepot.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/Search?keyword=air+compressor&selectedCatgry=SEARC H+ALL&langId=-1&storeId=10051&catalogId=10053&Ntpc=1&Ntpr=1 $129.00 New
I bought the above 2 years ago but would have bought the one below because it has a wheel kit and handle kit included.
Model H1504ST
http://www.homedepot.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/Search?keyword=air+compressor&selectedCatgry=SEARC H+ALL&langId=-1&storeId=10051&catalogId=10053&Ntpc=1&Ntpr=1 $159.99 New

Thanks

General,

Thanks for the tip. I'm probably going to get the smaller one so I have more choices of where to stow it.
