RE: Best route from Seattle to Bend, OR

What part of Seattle? I90 east out of Seattle connecting to I84 to US97 south avoide a lot of traffic thru part of Seattle/Tacoma corridor. I5 to I205 to I84 to 26 may be shorter, but traffic will cost a lot of time.

RE: Fall Travel to Northwest in Fall.

How late in the fall? Remember when in the mountains in the fall you can encounter freezing temps and/or snow. In the valley, along the I5 corodore you can expect cool and rain. The coast, best time of year to visit is mid Septenber to mid October. But again expect cool and rain. The coast is best visited traveling north to south. Any of the Oregon state parks, plus private parks like Netarts Bay, Salmon Harbor at Winchester Bay are two of the best for views.

RE: OVEN VALVE -no parts available

Take the obsolete valve with you and go to a Johnstone supply store and see if they can match it for you.

RE: Replacing Refrigerator Cooling unit

Most people prefer the Amish cooling units. Will cost more, but better built. Have you considered a residental refer replacement?

RE: Trying to see if FT RV'n is for us

Park models are basically tiny homes. Watch an episode of tiny homes on HGTV some time. Generally there around 350 Sq ft. Have residential appliances and decent bed rooms. Because they have no holding tanks, and are designed to be moved often cost is usually much less.

RE: PU Truck - which model?

Get a one ton. 2500 series trucks run out of capacity real quick. 34 foot with 1600 pounds pin weight sounds fishy to me. I suspect your looking at the mystical dry weight. Remember, no matter what a fifth wheel will load approx 20% of its true loaded weight directly over the rear axle of the tow vehicle. That is in addition to what else you might load on, including the hitch, people, tools and supplies.

RE: Fifth wheel tire replacement

Go for 17.5 inch tires and wheels. You wont regret it.

RE: Portland to Burns

Portland over Mount Hood to Madras, Madras to Redmond, Redmond east to just before the Les Scwab warehouse about 5 miles west of Prineville, south on the road to the Bend-Burns highway (west of Millican), then east to Burns. The highway from 126 to 20 was constructed so the Les Schwab trucks did not have to go through Bend. Fastest and easiest road in my opinion. So 97 from South from Madras is a better road than 26 South of Madras? Huh? 26 and 97 merge on the north end of Madras and split again on the south end of Madras. 26 does not go to Burns unless you turn south on the road mentioned above or drive east to John Day and take 395 south.

RE: US 20 in Oregon

Take 22 from nesr the summit toward Salem and enjoy 101 from Lincoln City south. Better drive IMHO.

RE: Portland to Burns

If your in east Portland, 26/97/20 is your best option. If your on the west side of town, then I5 to Salem, 22/97/20 would be better.

RE: Okay, Oregonians, help me out here...

Take 20 west. Get a reservation at Tumalo ou LaPine state park for the first night. Second night Collier state park. From Collier its a fairly easy drive up to the lake. Leave your RV at Collier and explore.

RE: Mayfield, Ky to Portland Oregon

Get as far north as possible. Your choices then are MtRushmore and the black hills area. Glacier, Custer Battlefield, and or Yellowstone before heading to PDX.

RE: Oregon hwys

Us 26 from Gresham has always been my favorite. The climb is shorter. Other wise Weed straight up 97

RE: Chevy/GMC 2500 diesel owners

1, trim 2, there are better choices, but there OK. 3, 4, expect 10-11 towing no matter what 5, drive them all and pick what you like the best

RE: suburban as a tv for first tme

The problem with the 1500 Suburban is lack of payload. Once you have bodies in the seats and some travel stuff they generally are right at max payload with little to no room for hitch weight. Now, if you could find a low mileage 2500 Suburban it could make a great tow vehicle.
