Sorry to hear you won't be attending, Bob.  Hope it's not a serious condition keeping you from your favorite campfire.  We hung up our keys a few years ago, so hope you haven't reached that crossroad.  If so, it was a heck of a ride, wasn't it?   ;)

Bob - Bummer. Hope whatever is wrong works out and you get to Qtz even if it's after the rally.

Marsha and Tim (& Charlie) are now in Palm Desert and will be coming to the Rally on Wed, the 22nd.  Should we remind people to bring a couple of bundles of wood so that we have enough for campfires every night?

There is a place in Yuma that gives away free pallets of wood.  The Ding Bats group here took a Uhaul trailer down last month and brought up three large pallets for the campfire.  One of the guys also got a pickup load the other day when he went to Yuma for another reason.  I think they gave the forklift operator 5 dollars.

Absorption Gas Refrigeration Seminar
Thursday January 23rd, 2014
 2:00-4:00 PM
RV Forum Rally Site

On Thursday afternoon Mr Paul Unmack of ARP (Absorption Refrigeration Protection) will be on hand to discuss the principals of how gas absorption refrigerators work and the problems they can create. He is the inventor of the patented ARP control system that has been discussed extensively here on the Forum as well as other RV venues. Those of us who have had a chance to discuss his experiences with this issue are fascinated and impressed with his knowledge of the system

Paul asked that we allow plenty of time for Q&A so that everyone can have as much time as you need to understand the topic.

The meeting will be at the RV Forum campfire as well as nearby coaches with gas absorption refrigerators to offer hands on examples. It is open to attendees, other Forum members in the area, as well as anyone you might know with an interest.

SEE YOU SOON!

I am getting the ARP control system installed next Wednesday morning.  The day before the seminar.  I met with Paul today and it seems like an inexpensive insurance policy against the refer catching fire due to high boiler temperatures.  His system has a temp probe in the flue and shuts down the heat if the temp is too high and then restarts after a waiting period if the temp is below the limit.

I'm staying in Lake Havasu City and was wondering if I would need a special pass for the ranger gate to drive down via car and visit for one of the group get-togethers?

We've had people drive in for the day in the past and it hasn't been a problem.  If the ranger asks (they probably won't) just say you're visiting friends.

The only place they're picky about passes is across the highway.  That's where the water and dump stations are located and they've had problems with freeloaders.

We asked about driving in without an RV and the hosts said the LTVA is free for day use. The fee is for overnighting. They said many people who are camped farther away will drive into the LTVA closest to the Big Tent and park there for the day. It's ok with the staff and is allowed. Also, if you have a jeep or similar vehicle, you can drive down the Wash and park 50 yards from the Big Tent. I asked someone who was setting things up for the Tent and he said about 300 vehicles will do that every day. It's allowed. There is also a driveway out of the wash right into the Tent parking area. Parking is free he said. The roads get clogged with traffic and driving to the Tent by way of the Wash bypasses all that traffic. You do need 4X4 though because the wash is sand and small gravel and is soft in spots so a 2 wheel drive vehicle would probably get stuck.

Terry and Betty Brewer arrived today along with  Ken and Sheila Kuch and our friend Russ Mahoney. 

Ken and Terry installed our new  Inverter today and now we have power  and charging abilities!  Did not have to make the run to Gilbert as Discount Solar here in Quartzsite had the  unit and for less $.

We do have a couple of travel trailers in the "old" site and  they  are taking up much of the room directly across from fire ring.  I told them we would be a coming! They have  been here since October!

OK OK, I guess I'm here and so is Sheila - at least until Monday. ;D

Glad Terry and Betty have and working Inverter/Charger. Actually the old Inverter still worked, but the charger portion was toast.

We drove over from Parker today just to be sure I could find the location and it was accomplished with no problem. We will be arriving tomorrow afternoon sometime or another....... we will try to park a tad away from others because of the dogs(not that they make much noise) but just to be sure plus we don't want to disturb others when we start the Gen set up...which we will be doing on occasion. (maybe more than that)   ;)

Don't worry about running your genset. Everybody else will be running theirs, during generator hours, of course.
