That's for the combo. Not sure what the combined weight of stackable would be.

Like the residential fridge... I was more enamored with the idea of flexibility with propane than I was the actual functionality overall when I had the Amish unit put on. Should have gone Samsung back then. You have to weigh all these decisions and do it within the confines of the chassis etc.
Motocycle helmets, jacket, other related clothes, gloves, etc. Oh yea, an extra dining chair too

Yea, I too thought, oh wow, gas/electric fridge/freezer, how flexible. Never really leveraged the "gas" much other than driving w/o the generator on but then again, I drive w/o the generator on w/the residential and it just feeds off the inverter. Unless we were true boondocks, there's really no point I guess.

Sure love that solid, frozen ice cream on a hot night and not dealing with defrosting issues!

The Anderson Camp here in Eden, Idaho is mixed use I suppose as it is right off the highway but the majority are famlies with kids. There was a birthday party for one of the kids here yesterday. The lucky kids came in a day or two early with their parents and RV. Others were dropped off by their parents before the party.

But as watched the RVing families arrive, 98% with tow behinds or 5th wheels, I was reminded of family trips with my daughter, and of my own childhood trips with my mom, dad and sister. But the folks here were 100% pros at the load out and back in. From the bed of trucks, racks here and there came fleets of bicycles, grills, area mats, fire rings, banners. I think they checked everything off the list and then some and never a harsh word or argument. In less than an hour they transformed an empty site into a magic land right outside of town and back to empty again.

Those times as kid for me were wonderful and at least partly responsible for the life I live today. I do believe there is a mutant gene that seals the deal. And I wouldn't be surprised if I just got a glimpse of some of the next generation of RV Mutants.

Btw - the dad's and older boys were deadly accurate at horse shoes. Actually fun to watch. No noise, no outbursts. Just good old fashioned serious horse shoes!
Interesting. . .
That whole post kinda' gave me a warm fuzzy feeling, especially that last paragraph.
It's nice to see the behavior when a group of 'respectables' get together.

Hate to break up in the middle of the horseshoes, but I am trying to find a decent dog fence to put around the door of the 5th wheel so we can let the pups out in the morning to do their business without having to hop out of bed and put our clothes on to take them for a walk.
I have looked at a lot of them. Just thought I would get some feed back from you folks.
Horse shoes sound like fun.

Confessions of a weed hater

My DD and SIL moved into a new house in March. The house had been vacant for more than 2 years as it went thru foreclosure, auction and flippers dedicated to getting their price. It's a beautiful 95 year old traditional house overlooking Lake Washington just north of Seattle.

When I got here a month ago the yard was overgrown and the flowerbeds were full of weeds -- LOTS of waist high weeds. Pulling weeds has always been something I have enjoyed. Weird, I know, but my back pain makes bending over at the waist more comfortable than standing erect. Also, there are very few activities that show more quick positive results than removing weeds.

So, being a veteran of the weed wars, I thought I had seen everything. Wrong! Even though I have been pulling Seattle weeds for 6 summers, moving a mere 30 miles north has introduced me to a totally new demon -- Shot weed!

The first time I reached down to pull this totally dead weed I thought I was seeing things. As soon as I touched it, tiny seeds were flung in all directions, blending with the soil around it.

Until that moment, my most hated weed was all 250 types of dandelions. Did you know there is even a dandelion on the endangered list? Ok, only in California is it a protected species, but lawsuits have been filed over a dandelion!

Ok, so back to shot weed. Doing a little online research has me hating this beast even more. It germinates in the fall, about the time I head south. It survives the mild Pacific Northwest winters and is dead and ready to shoot seeds before I even return in the spring. This is a foe that I'll have to work very hard to control, let alone defeat.

Hey Rae!

I've not seen any pooch fencing around any Mutant RVs but the traveling with pets forum will have lots of ideas for you. Here's a link

Where's Pushed Around when you need him? Larry, got a dog fence question for you.

Larry's the only person I know that can out fence me on a one on one bases. Course I've never seen him work with barbwire.

rbott hope you find something that works for you.

rbott I got to thinking, I've seen many campers in the State Park we host at snap a long dog leash to a tree and hand the dog end by the camper door.

Then it's just a snap and toss!

Would work on kids too I bet!
