RE: watching TV in your 5er

You would need your own high speed internet connection for this to work. Most parks don't allow any type of media streaming on their internet.

RE: Who flat tows a Ford Explorer ?

Towed an 08 Explorer for six years then bought a new 2014 three years ago before that we towed an 04 Suzuki. Love the Explorers but found them quite a bit heavier, just something to keep in mind. Things like my old tow bar system would not work on the Explorers. Only other real problem I encountered was with the 2014, in the manual they say to start the engine and run it every 6 hours. Problem was by that time the battery was already dead. Had to install a charge line from the coach to the toad to keep the battery charged. Other than that you just put the transmission in Neutral with the key in the first position and go. About as easy as it gets.

RE: Rough Trip Home from Easter Weekend Camping

Glad everyone is ok. Hope your estimate holds up. Last spring we passed a fiver going down the freeway and all that happened was one of his bedroom windows tore loose and hit the side of our motorhome. Damage was in excess of 10K,

RE: Almost gave up my Dish service

Now that you have the replacement, if you have not done so you may want to check the serial number to find out if they show you own it

RE: Boycott Walmart in Seguin TX

In my home town there is a 48 hour parking ordnance for RV's even on your own property if visible from the street. Although it sometimes makes it tough to prepare for a trip, it keeps people like you from abusing WalMart's hospitality.

RE: Oregon Coast Thousand Trails

If when you get there you can't find a site there is always the casino parking lot where you could boondock for a couple of nights. The casino is just out of Florence on the highway to Eugene.

RE: Ham, Lamb, or Something Else?

Found young turkeys at 49 cents a pound on sale after Thanksgiving and hauled one all the way to Yuma. Don't want to haul it back to Oregon so guess we will be having turkey and dressing.

Had several 70s Dodge motorhomes and loved the old 440s. Biggest problems was they ate exhaust manifolds to the point where I doubt you could find a used one anywhere. Of course that means installing headers. I also remember something about a resistor mounted in the engine compartment that would fail and the engine would not run, always carried a spare. Might be a fun project.

RE: Oregon Coast Thousand Trails

I would pass on Whalers Rest it is mostly very tight. South Jetty is ok and at least in my opinion, on the Oregon coast you really don't need 50 amp as the need for air conditioning is almost non existent. The same can be said for Pacific City. Your biggest problem is arriving on Sunday July 2nd. By that time all the 4th of July holiday campers from both Portland and Eugene will already be there and you can be sure that the biggest and best sites will already be taken and the odds of finding a site big enough for your rig will be pretty slim. Almost everyone I know that is still working will take the Monday off and stretch this into a four day weekend. If I was coming up from California I think I would be looking to stay further South say around Bandon at Bullards Beach state park until after the holiday. You would be far enough away from Portland and Eugene to avoid the large crowds and it is a great place to stay. Good luck

RE: Roof Leak

When mine did that I found the leak was around the rubber boot for the coax. A little silicone and it was good as new.

RE: US 95 or AZ 95

That was my thought also. However we will be spend the night in Ehrenbert and Arizona 95 is 20 miles back in Quartzsite. Then I would not backtrack. US 95 North out of Blythe is a good road.

RE: Ceiling fan. install advice

Thx... seems like 120 would make a better fan, but will check in to both. Thx again. I think the 12 volt motors are smaller and lighter.

RE: US 95 or AZ 95

My preferred route is AZ95 North to Parker then crossing into CA and catching CA62 to US 95.

RE: Ceiling fan. install advice

I think most RV ceiling fans are 12 Volt rather than 110. I know mine is. Search Amazon for RV ceiling fans.

RE: Over weight Rottie

The Kirkland Healthy Weight dog food worked for us but it took almost a year to get to a correct weight Starting with short walks we worked our way up to 5 miles every morning. What was even better was with the morning walks I cut back and lost 60 pounds myself.

RE: Crooked as they come

In many companies it is a job requirement that employees must sign up a certain number of credit card accounts to keep their jobs. So you do what you gotta do.

RE: Coast to coast

Coast to Coast is a reciprocal membership program. You must be a member of a membership campground club that is associated with them first then you can join C2C for about $100 a year.

RE: Windy conditions

Been in high winds many times. If you are lucky enough you will not be broadside to the wind but even if you are in most cases that is not a real problem. If you have slide toppers you may reach a point where it will make sense to pull in your slide. Other than that not much more you can do except be aware of where the wind is coming from and whether it will rip the door out of your hand if you open it to go outside.

RE: Looking For Suggestions on Yuma to Calgary

At this time of year the only route where you might not hit any major snow is to go West and either take I5 or 101 North. Lots of things to see but take some rain gear, you will need it.
