RE: East to West

Right now, I would take the southern route. On I-80, you can't get there.

RE: New to RVing

Middle daughter drives a OTR 18-wheeler coast -to-coast. Sometimes three to four weeks with just herself and her small dog. Fuel mileage sucks, but her company pays it, all maintenance on the truck, and most of her expenses. as well as giving her a new truck occasionally. Her truck has everything except a shower, and she gets those free at a truck stop, for fuel points. She gets to see a LOT of the country.

RE: LED/TV reception

Have heard of this problem before, but have not seen a solution yet. I have not had this type problem with y LEDs (yet) so maybe someone else can help.

Historic part of Natchez Trace no longer there

Read this in the Florence, AL paper today. He will be missed by all of us, sitting for while with him was like living history. Really regret that so many future travelers will not be able to meet and talk with this part of History. Tom Hendrix passes on into history.

RE: Suggestions, software for laptop mapping and GPS

So far, there does not appear to be any replacement for S&T. Looks like that is a thing of the past. Mapping programs load up a log of data on a computer storage, the new tablets and such are much more limited in that respect, and many do not have CD drives to download that much data. AT one time, you had to have the disk in the drive to use S&T.

RE: Full time w/ motorcycles?

Good motorhome to pull with under $50K is gonna be the trick if you can do it. We did, but its rare. And that was not recent. Prices have gone up a lot since them.

RE: Full time w/ motorcycles?

Don't see any difference between pulling a toad, or a trailer with cycles. We see many either in CGs, or on the road. Just keep it reasonable, and within the load ratings for your hitch.

Try just moving your existing router. place it as high as you can, up next to the ceiling if possible. Also moving it as close to the center of your expected radius might help. Raising mine up toward the ceiling on a existing shelf made lots of diffrerence.

RE: Red Top Mountain SP

RE: Red Top Mountain SP

last time we were there, the campsite was about 6' above the waterline... Actually, here is a link to a site that reports the peak at about 1100 feet. No nosebleed or thin air problems.. here is the link: Red top Mountain

RE: air line

old as it is, my 2000 chevy Venture mini-van came equipped with air lifts and a built-in compressor. As it is a 7-passenger model, the idea is to compensate for the weight of passengers when loaded. It has been a great feature, and has a panel with an air connector, and on-off switch in the back. It came with a hose long enough to reach the front tires, and several nozzles, including a needle for footballs and basketballs.

RE: Captains Chair

Even though our MH did not have power seats, there was a fused and live wire next to the seat pedestal for power seats. So it was just a matter of connecting the wires. It was fused thru a fuse labeled "power seat"

RE: lighting upgrades

Thanks to everyone for the ideas. Just haven't seen anything that strikes my fancy yet, but haven't given up. BTW, I did another lighting upgrade that worked very well, to eliminate the blazing hot fixture that was there. Here is a link to the photo album that shows it all. Enjoy!

RE: Door height

When we got our first Motor home, I wanted to build a garage to house it. Banker told me it was foolish to build a building for something that should NOT be there. Suggested that I use the building money to buy gas instead, then there would be no need for the building. and,HE WAS RIGHT!!!

RE: Roof Vent Cover...One Fit Only & Which Brand or Color?

I am getting a VORTEX fan for my birthday to replace the tiny fan in our bathroom vent, but it has't been delivered yet... Don't expect the MAXX air cover to have any effect on it. Might restrict air a bit at highest speed, but I don't see that as a problem.

RE: Roof Vent Cover...One Fit Only & Which Brand or Color?

To be really correct, in the summer, if the AC is running, and it is cooler inside the RV, when you open a door, the cool air inside will flow out the door, which MIGHT cause a bit of warm outside air to be drawn in from under the vent cover. So, a dark vent might have a bit more hot air under it than a white one would.. Worst case, they also sell insulated plugs that fit in your vent, and keep any air from going in or out.

RE: Roof Vent Cover...One Fit Only & Which Brand or Color?

Our Maxx-airs(3) are white, because that is the same color as the roof. As far as heat goes, Yes, the dark ones may absorb more sun heat, but they are VENT covers, with open holes for heat and air to flow out of. Heat goes up, the covers are on top, heat goes out the holes. Simple! If the vent under it is open then the rising heat just draws more air, whatever the temperature from below. And yes, one of ours is mounted over a fantastic fan, so we can leave the fan vent open when it rains. Keeps the inside temperature below or at the maximum outside air.

RE: By-Passing TV Power Booster For Satellite

Its not a "bypass" at all Just take the wire off the power supply and attach it to the Satellite receiver. Look at the picture, that's the way it works!
