RE: Google Maps? Locally stored maps?

Get a good GPS that comes with free updates for life. For what you are planning, I would get one of the larger screen ones, as you can see more of the map. A mapping program like MS Streets and trips on you computer is good, but no longer available. DeLorme sells a good one, there are others available. A current trucker atlas with laminated pages is really good to have, but lacks a lot of detail for off-road. State road maps work but need to be replaced every year or two.

RE: antifreeze in fresh water tank

Drain it, flush it WELL. flush lines, If it was RV antifreeze, OK to drink, Radiator antifreeze, flush a lot more with city water, Maybe do the bleach sanitize thing, OK to use. Either case may have a bit of residual odor or taste, should not be any problem health wise. It will go away, but may take a while. Reason to use city water is for the chlorine used to purify. Bleach cycle does the same, bleach taste is better than antifreeze.

RE: Which A/C setting?

Whichever works best for your rig and situation. We prefer a small, high velocity, quieter fan to keep air circulating. Our A/C fan is a lot louder.

RE: Day/Night shades

Have repaired and rethreaded several. There have been a number of threads on here, just do a bit of looking. Hardest part is getting them down and back up. In your case, you may just need to tighten the strings. Easy to do with just a screwdriver.

RE: Storage, bugs, critters & unwanted guests

When parked at home with the MH connected to shore power, we plug some of the ultrasonic bug and mouse repellers into several outlets inside. Don't have any idea whether they work or not, but we haven't had any mice that we know of, but apparently they don't work for spiders.. Have had a few of those.

RE: Aden and Jake's RV Adventure

Truly reflects the attitudes of America's youth. Why work, just expect handouts. But then, if it works, why not try it. Lots of people living on government handouts, and begging on corners. And big paying, do-nothing jobs.

RE: Gas stops along route to Yellowstone.

Wherever you can get into, and the price is not a rip-off. We used to look for WalMarts because of the discount when using their credit card. but they have discontinued that so better to use wherever and pay cash.

RE: Mercedes Texas

Should be fine after they get the wall built. Watch out for underground tunnels though.

RE: Distilled or Deionized?

Distilled. Water that is truly deionized is an insulator and will NOT conduct electricity! (Until you add something to it. Then it becomes an conductor). Addint to a lead-acid battery, it will make no difference, but distilled is more available and cheaper.

RE: Keeping 5th Wheel cool in Texas sun

One AC or two?? A Fantastic ceiling vent at the highest point will help remove hot air, while cooler air tends to stay lower. Cool it down as low as possible with AC at night. Reflective covers over windows. Cool drinks(ice cooled), cool snacks. sit outside in shade with fans.

RE: When does the fear stop?

For what its worth, the one time I got it up to 80 was when I let myself get trapped in the middle of a bunch of crazy traffic on a downhill interstate. Had to get out of the way before a crazy idiot either hit me or ran me off the road! It and I did OK, but never again if I can help it!

RE: When does the fear stop?

Might be somethig you can do to get some improvement, although I am less qualified to advise in this area than many others. Our 30' class A does require constant attention to drive, and I usually drive 60-65 on interstates, and generally less onothers, depending on conditions. Although I do not like to, I have run as high as 70+, and it handles OK. However, at 80, I get REAL uncomfortable. Winds do have a big effect on it, always. As far as fear, if you are uncomfortable, then you might be too fast for conditions. Fear is not always a bad thing. Sometimes it helps you to stay out of trouble.

RE: Booth Dinette Removal Problem

If all else fails, try sliding a thin hacksaw blade behind it and see if you can find the screws. If so, then wrap one end of the blade with tape to make a handle, then slide the blade in and cut the screws. In tight spaces, the bare blade is a lot easier to use than a power saw. try to post pictures so we can tell what exactly you have to work with.

RE: Booth Dinette Remove Problem

Without pictures it is difficult to say. Might try a powerful magnet around the area where it seems to be secured, to help locate screws. If upholstered, screws might be hidden in upholstery.
