  Roofrack for my van
Posted by: Texjbird - 12-03-2018, 10:09 PM - Forum: Passenger - Replies (25)

Wink <<<<<Ya'll see that I've already gone blind in one eye.  
When I Google Roof Rack for 1998 GMC Safari Conversion Van with Fiberglass Hightop in my stupidity that is what I expect links to.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can find specific things on the internet?  Right now I'm looking for roof racks for the Safari.   Usually I'm doing O.K. finding things.  

Sometimes dealing with the Safari it's like I'm asking for equipment to ride on a Ela-phump or a Camel and get back links on info on how to live in a VW Bug..........the parts will not work on the Safari or a Ela-phump either  Rolleyes

If I was in S Florida I’d look at it, or at least call.  No mention of solar or inverter description, and you cant even get a 1997 Express low top thats bare for this price, so the caution flags are up on this one!

  Facebook and CRVL
Posted by: RoamingKat - 12-03-2018, 06:05 AM - Forum: Chit-Chat and Off Topic - Replies (35)

I do not understand why people are so willing to give away their privacy to the likes of Zuckerman so he can profit from it.   He is a total slime.  Does everyone know he is selling your info to hostile foreign governments now too?     He is selling ads delivered to you to improve the image of the Saudis....nice, eh?  By the time you learn the next slimy thing he has done...it is too late..he already sold your privacy.   

Anyway,  so..I have been attempting to plan meeting various friends while avoiding the CRVL caravans
This is becoming more difficult because caravan one is now posting only on Facebook.   (I guess if you do not “do” Facebook, they don’t want you....sounds ok to me...except, it also makes it hard for people trying to avoid them.)


   I am meeting a couple people over near the Slabs...has anyone been following them?  when are they leaving there?   What are their coordinates?   Do they happen to post which road in the Slabs they are off of?  

Also, I am meeting friends up off Plomosa Rd. early January...when is the WRTR going there?  Anyone know the exact coordinates?    I know they are departing for the RTR...so I know it is before that.   

Avoiding the RTR is easy...just stay away from Qsite, but, I am hoping that they are not going to organize anything going to New Mexico after the RTR....?

  coach and house batteries are dead
Posted by: RoamingRaven - 12-02-2018, 06:26 PM - Forum: Mechanical Problems - Replies (17)

The RV is parked at my daughter's in full sun.  It has 2 - 145w solar panels that connect into 2 wet batteries with 70ah each. The water level is good.  The coach battery I am unsure of the size.  When I went over this week to run the RV a bit, all batteries were dead.  

When I jump the coach it should charge the house batteries.  But.  What might have caused the solar to quit charging?  And if I have a power drain, how might I figure out what is the cause?  I'm returning to my daughter's tomorrow to jump the coach battery.

Thanks for recommendations.

  Thanks for the comfortable place
Posted by: Queen - 12-02-2018, 01:51 PM - Forum: Chit-Chat and Off Topic - Replies (23)

I’m active on a few forums, but as time goes by I feel more and more out of place. I’ve always understood about wealth disparity, but now that coupled with over the top conspicuous consumption, I am feeling alien in those places. 

I really appreciate this place, more all the time, when I realize the fundamental point here is experience, not acquisition. No one looks askance at another if they don’t have money, everyone tries to help, and most are very welcoming. Great job Gary and gang!!

  Propane System Design Advice
Posted by: WanderingCanuck - 12-02-2018, 11:16 AM - Forum: Propane - Replies (28)

I'm technically competent, but have done little with pressurized flammable gas in an enclosed space. I'd like to do this part as well as can be done.

I want to carry 2 tanks, only one connected, and I can manually swap them. These will be in an enclosed compartment, vented outside. I'll need a regulator, and ability to supply gas to a stove (Coleman at this point, maybe built-in later) and a Propex/Heatsource HS2000 heater.

What should my shopping list look like? Any tips on location and/or routing? This will be going into a Transit 148 HR regular length.

  there's two kinds of Star Trek fans...
Posted by: Kaylee - 12-01-2018, 04:35 PM - Forum: Chit-Chat and Off Topic - Replies (38)

Those who love the Tribble episode(s), and those who don't get 'em.

I'm curious what the distribution is like here... and it's been taxing my brain while driving.

There's also the Khan vs Whales best movie issue, if you feel so inclined to comment. Smile

Me: pro Tribbles, Whales fer sure!
Though, of course, Khan was also awesome. Those are the only two classic Trek movies I own.

  7.0 Quake outside Anchorage
Posted by: TrainChaser - 11-30-2018, 06:34 PM - Forum: Chit-Chat and Off Topic - No Replies

I just brought up Google News & saw they had an earthquake this morning.  I've never heard of a Quake in winter!  I think they said it was 25miles deep, so what would an earthquake care what season it was?  No fatalities that they know.  But the photos show the frozen roads shattered like glass.  People are saying some of the schools just cracked in half.

I guess it's something of a different ballgame when everything is frozen.

  What happened to Abuelaloca?
Posted by: TWIH - 11-30-2018, 02:47 PM - Forum: Forum News - Replies (2)

I haven’t seen anything from her in months.  Her screen name details says she hasn’t been on the forum since mid-Sept. 

Tried sending her a pm just now and got an error message saying “her pm quota has been reached” or something.

Pardon me if I have missed something but I just wondered. If there’s a private reason just delete this thread.
