RE: Newport, OR to Portland

North to Lincoln City.....east on Hwy.18 to McMinnville...Hwy.99 north. Done them all at one time or another. This is possibly the worst traffic wise. Cut over on 22 to Salem is way faster and less stress if you want to go that way. But you still have to fight the Lincoln City traffic mess. Still the best by far from Newport is due east to Philomath and either go up I5 or 99W. Which is fast becoming my preferred route. And not just because I live on the west side of the valley now, but because of the far less traffic and a more relaxing drive.

RE: Changing Tires to Michelins?

When there was a recall on the BFG Commercial TA that is what my dealer replaced them with. Been good so far.

RE: Newport, OR to Portland

Donn0128 - is that the little park on the Luckiamute at the base of the big hill? Didn't realize there were camp hosts there. Yes, first state park in Oregon. Two decent beaches for playing in the river. They have a host here in the summer to help keep it looking nice. Other than the mice it is a good park

RE: Newport, OR to Portland

Corvallis will have fuel. There is no reason you cannot make Portland on one tank. McMinnville has the Spruce Goose at the air museum. From there you come into Portland area on the west side. If you want the east side then from here it is only about 15 miles to Salem and I5 to I205. BTW we are the park hosts at this gem of a day use park. We will be here all day. Maybe stop for a dip in the river before or after lunch. We are maybe an hour from Newport.

RE: Newport, OR to Portland

Come inland from Newport and drive 99W north. Great secondary drive. If you do stop and say hello at Sarah Helmick for lunch.

RE: picking up our new 5th wheel, need advice

I prefer towing and parking at home alone. DW goes in the house until I park. Then she comes to help unload.

RE: your opinion on appliance age

Yup. My 2005 fifth wheel is all original except for the microwave. It quit last month. Replaced it on the road one day. Everything else is fine

RE: Terminology Question

Campground in this part of the country seems to refer to more rural,basic state or NF camping. RV park is more upscale full hookup place. RV resort is just what you might expect at places like Sandal or other resorts. Lots of high cost and pampering. In other parts of the country it could mean something different. Same goes for RV types. I grew up believing a camper was mounted in the bed of a truck. Not any more. Now people refer to a camper as any sort of RV. As in RV camper. Still have a hard time with that.

RE: Seattle area and Pacific Coast

Personally, skip the WA coast except maybe the Olympic pennisular. And instead go straight south on I5 to Longview follow the directions yo Astoria and turn south. Fort Stevens state park should be the first stop.

RE: Landing Gear Reducing Gearbox Issues

If all else fails, support the nose of your fiver, retract the landing gear by hand if you have to, take the two 7/16 inch nuts off that clamp the leg in place and tilt the leg over until you can remove the gear box. Takes no time at all to do that.

RE: Any downside to a domestic refrigerator?

Resedential refer conversion is very common now days when the OE Norcold dies. Pepople are installing a Samsung refer with excellent results. As a side question I just have to ask..... why a Motor Home as a first ever RV??

RE: Satellite TV hookup

It is also very common that manufacturers used the less expensive copper clad coax and this stuff does not work with newer satellite equipment.

RE: Co detector

How old? They have a finite life. Heck I have a nearly new one that goes off every morning about 4. Took the fuse out till I get home and have time to research the issue

RE: residential refrigerator

If the refer came from the factory then you do have an inverter. You need to check things out whether you have a switch ( doubtful) dead batteries (possible) or something else going on. Get out your volt meter and start checking or hire someone to show you the proper operation.
