RE: Hwy 37 - Stewart-Cassiar update

The Cassier is a gorgeous highway and is wide enough for two vehicles. No drop offs. Everyone should treat themselves to the drive.

RE: Windshield Shades

We went with Prompt RV Screens 10 years ago for our motorhome and would highly recommend them. No snaps. Easy up and down in a few minutes. They are very reasonable in price and are made to fit your specific model. We compared colors of friends by going inside and looking out. By far, dark colors give you a much crisper landscape. We chose dark brown to go with our motorhome.

RE: Gray water dump

Self contained boats on the lake don't have grey tanks. Tommy According to this document and the Corps of Engineers Regulations, it is illegal for boaters or campers to dump gray water on the ground or in the water in Texas. Texas Gray Water Regulations

RE: If you've had 3M film on the front, would you again?

We've had it on our new MH for 10 years and it still looks perfect. It's so easy to clean. It's on the roads constantly as we've full-timed for all that time - even to Alaska. When these posts come up I do notice that folks in humid areas have more problems with it. We stay west of the Mississippi. For us, we would definitely apply it to another RV.

RE: Very few "RV Dealers" sell & service motorhomes in Wisconsin

Have you looked at 'RV Service Reviews' site? There seems to be quite a number in Wisconsin. RV Service Reviews

RE: Gray water dump

Since you're from South Carolina, I just checked and it's illegal to dump gray water. One of our 'duties' while volunteering for a national park was to go to each roadside faucet in the campground because water wasn't draining - just leaving puddles. We had to dig the soil/rocks down a foot to remove hair, toothpaste, garbage and grease and replace the soil with new. This is from folks washing their hair, brushing teeth and doing dishes at the spigots - even when there's a sign at the spigots stating not to do so. It was a disgusting job!! So think twice before dumping gray water. It does make a difference.

RE: Homer/Seward for 4th of July?

We spent July 4 in Palmer. We knew the Kenai (Seward/Homer) would be a zoo at that time which isn't for us.

RE: Roll Call Alaska 2014

You might consider crossing at Sumas - a lot less traffic. There's a basic RV park there for overnight. After we crossed we then stayed at Wild Rose RV in Hope, a neat little town, and regrouped a couple days. We did some siteseeing, stocked on groceries and went to the bank for some $$ exchange. Very nice wood carvings lining the streets, too - and a little Japanese garden.

RE: Snowbirds - East or West?

We were midwesterners but one trip out west and we were hooked.

RE: Leaving your rig while boondocking

16 years of boondocking with no theft. One night in a campground - 2 lawn chairs taken. :)

RE: Orange County CA to Zion Ponderosa UT

You'll love Best Friends Animal Sancturary. Plus, it's in a gorgeous area. Since you're staying a week at Ponderosa, you might want to take a day to drive to Bryce National Park. It's completely different from Zion. Hiking down a trail will give you an altogether different prospective than staying at the top. Wall Street Trail is awesome! Have a good vacation!

RE: insurance

First, this probably should be moved to the full-time forum. You didn't state your age and where you plan to be domiciled (your legal address). You don't need to own a house in your domicile state. We use the Escapees RV Club in Livingston, Texas for our mail forwarding and they give us a legal address - tested in the courts. This address is used for all governmental issues - driver's license, insurance, taxes, etc. There are many factors to getting insurance and no two people will be the same. For us we presently use National Interstate but every two years we go through price comparisons and if we find a cheaper one for what benefits we want, we'll switch. For medical we have Medicare and our supplement is with Transamerica through Good Sam Club. We've used them for 8 yr. with many surgeries and everything is covered. Good luck. It takes some investigation and lots of phone calls.

RE: Class A toad caught on fire

1) a rear camera won't show a flat tire. We had a flat and couldn't even feel a difference in the pull. The monitor can't show a view from the side. A motorist pulled alongside and gave us that dreaded hand signal. We were riding on the rim by that time. We immediately installed tire presser sensors on all tires - motorhome and toad. 2) RE: a safe hidden in a rear closet, etc. Ours is portable and is kept by the front door and is easy to grab when we leave the motorhome. We don't have a safe for intruders as the chances of that are almost nonexistent. 16 years of full-timing, lots of boondocking in remote places and talking to full-timers constantly, and have never heard of an instance of intruders. Yes, it 'could' happen but if it does so be it. Our concern is having our important documents, etc. ready to grab on exit. If we're in a shop for servicing our documents go with us in the toad for the day.

RE: Guide book or website about steep/twisted/rough roads?

..and reading that description tells me what to expect for the next 20 miles - no surprises. What's wrong with that? If the last entry stated a 10% grade begins in two miles, I would want to know that and perhaps find a different route before I even get on that road. When we're doing extensive mountain driving we go over our next day's planned route the night before when there still time to make changes. We don't get on a mountain road and THEN begin reading about it. We have no fear of mountain roads and know that going up and down will be slower for us. But we do appreciate finding this kind of information to let us know what we're getting into.

RE: Can smell mold but can't find it

We were in heavy chipmunk surrounds and once had a chipmunk die in one of our bay compartments -left the door open for him to walk right in :). A couple weeks later the strange moldy smell began. We emptied the bays and found it. Washed his resting place and no more smell. A mouse might smell the same!

RE: Is Top of the World Hwy paved

OP - since you don't like dust/gravel and your wife needs guardrails, I highly suggest you skip the Top of the World Highway. You might even have difficulty with the whole Alaskan trip if you don't like dust. Re-think your goal. Hopefully, you'll change your mind. All that dust/gravel is well worth it.

RE: Fresh water AND grey water combined?

OP - Even if you're buying a new RV, don't assume that the grey tank hasn't been used. Also, even if you redesigned the plumbing yourself the resale is zilch. No one would want to buy it set up like that.
2gypsies 04/16/14 10:01pm Public Lands, Boondocking and Dry Camping

If you look at some RVs with full paint you will see that black would look better than white. You can't see the roof but you can see the air conditioner. When being built, some are even painted a color to blend with the full paint - brown, dark green, etc.
