    Alaska 2019

    I have done this trip through BC and Yukon 3 times. Let me know if I can help with questions. The last time I did this trip was just 2 years ago...

    Yup. That's what I figured... I will still follow this topic as I am all about boondocking Big or small.

    So this is in the HDT section, are you only interested in speakers with HDT? (As pointed out by Glenn and BL) I'm not sure you'd want to here from us little camper guys?? LOL

    Extending my receiver hitch

    When using an adapter, your towing capacity and tongue weight will be reduced by 50%. For example, if you have 5,000 lbs towing and 500 lbs tongue weight, you will be reduced to 2,500 lbs towing and 250 lbs tongue weight. This is because the hitch extender moves the load out farther from your vehicle, applying more leverage to your hitch. https://www.etrailer.com/faq-hitch-adapters-extenders.aspx

    Any Advice on best 4x4 RV for off-road Boondocking?

    I'm late to the conversation but have you considered the Four Wheel Campers Flat bed models? https://fourwh.com Depending on the truck built on can keep the price considerably lower than the full blown 4x4 RVs. I am in a smaller FWC and can say they are truly go anywhere as well as the larger models are well equipped for full time.
  6. SUCCESS. Was able to keep the ignitor and high voltage cable. Just pulled the push button and the AAA 1 Terminal sparker fit exactly into the same spot. It sparks like crazy. It seems like this will work. Still takes a while to light, but I can push and hold a button forever compared to those Piezo's that ware out every 100 clicks.
  7. Thanks. This has answered a few questions I had. I have my BBQ igniter just trying to find the time to work on the mod...I'll post if it was successful or not. I hope this weekend I will get some time.

    To TOAD or Scooter

    Late to the conversation but I'd vote for Dual Sport Motorcycle with the other couple I see that posted the same. Great Gas Mileage. Dirt or Street. 2Up possible. Good Mule to haul around groceries or whatever. Low Maintenance. Not hard to tow at all, many towing options available. Riding in weather is part of the adventure...LOL

    Park pricing on the way up

    Sorry for late reply. I live in unincorporated area. Not many rules... However, I already have a driveway installed that can support 2 RVs.

    Stink Bug Apocalypse

    Both methods work. Of course the bowl is a little better because it doesn't evaporate as quickly. Bowl outside works too, with a light above it attracts them in.... The squirt bottle you can hit them through your screens too...LOL

    Stink Bug Apocalypse

    A mixture of Dawn Dish soap and warm water actually kills them. They breath through their body, the soap clogs this up and kills them. This is a trick that Apple Growers have used.

    Park pricing on the way up

    I have actually considered this.....I think there is an app called Gamping that allows you to list spots on your property...

    Park pricing on the way up

    That's interesting I live in Joshua Tree since 2008 and there has been no charge to enter up until at least 2011 or maybe it wasn't until 2014 (Most of the time there wasn't even park rangers at the hut). it was also only $8 entry when they finally set it up. Now I think it is $35 entry.
