RE: Wood blocks, storage and jack

I use what ever is required to level the TT. I once had to drive to Wal-Mart to pick up two concrete blocks to level a "slight grade" campsite in Kentucky. Heck, when boondocking on forest service land, we've had to dig a hole for the tires in order to level! (then fill in after we leave)

RE: Wood blocks, storage and jack

Regarding your blocks question and storage. With us, we have the heavy duty connecting leveling blocks and they come with a zippered cloth bag so they go back in that bag. With our BAL X chocks (stabilizers that go between the tires), I made bags to hold them out of denim and added Velcro to the flabs to secure them shut. I also made one like this for our Slunky sewer hose support. They're all washable and super easy to do with even old left over jeans.

RE: Iconic Pikes Peak Cog railway closed until....?

the royal gorge cog train has been gone for a number of years. we were there in 2015 and it was gone. Sad. I'm glad we did it while we were there.

RE: Navigating low clearances/city roads

I agree with all on remeasuring. We too are tall and we are 13'5" and we carry a Rand McNally Motor Carrier's Road Atlas to anticipate low overpasses.

The Gorge also uses a cog type of system for their ride to the bottom.

RE: Iconic Pikes Peak Cog railway closed until....?

We too have had the awesome experience riding the Pikes Peak Cog Railroad to the top. Such a shame that others may not be able to do the same. What is needed is a wealthy benefactor to provide the resources to keep it repaired and open.

RE: Getting 5th wheeler next week

Fifth wheels start to turn slowly when backing, then they really start to come around quickly--watch it when backing into a space. DON'T forget the stairs down from the bedroom area in the dark!! The increased storage areas will have you buying more "stuff." Enjoy your new rig. Yes, take your time, backup, stop and look, pull forward straighten up, backup again, stop and look, pull forward to straighten again if you need to, repeat process. Add a motion light in this area. DH missed the steps once. After that we added a motion light and hasn't happened again. Be careful of this last one - you still have to stay within your Cargo Carrying Capacity. How do I know? I'm the "weight police" at our house! You may have a lot of storage room in a FW, but that doesn't mean you can fill it all up.

RE: Hwy 93 out of Missoula into Idaho

I agree on Torrey's. In fact, we drive up and stay there often enough, usually the Memoria Day holiday. Anne purchases cards of my artwork and sells them in her store. They were packed over the Eclipse last year.

RE: Hwy 93 out of Missoula into Idaho

Pigfarmer, you won't have a problem. Semis take both these routes.

RE: Hwy 93 out of Missoula into Idaho

We've towed all over this state and into Montana and have driven those routes. You didn't mention what you're driving or towing, but if you have adequate power to go over any of the passes in Colorado, then Lost Trail and Galena Summit won't be a problem. Lost Trail is short and winding, good and wide enough. Galena Summit is wide enough too but the climb from the north is slow and gradual. Once you get to the summit, there is a rest stop. Shortly past the summit, on the way down there are some short and narrow turns, then a gradual ride all the way into Ketchum and Sun Valley. There's a nice wide rest area at the intersection of 75 and 20. Hwy 20 all the way is good with one very short downhill and winding section after you pass the turn off to Little Camas Reservoir. Again, if you have a setup with good power and control, then none of these are a problem, to be respected for sure, but the beauty can't be missed. If you happen to be passing through the Challis area close to stopping for the night, there's a very nice RV Park between Clayton and Stanley right on the highway, Torrey's Inn. They have a web site and full hookups right on the Salmon River. Easy in and easy out. Have fun.

RE: Easy to get a reset from DISH.

I leave mine in the RV between trips so it loses its authorization. Same here. In fact we only have satellite for the RV. So we need a reset sent. I'll have to tell DH about this because calling in is not his favorite thing to do.

RE: Securing your genset

We carry a Honda eu2000 in our front bay. DH attached tie down brackets and we secure it for travel there. It's on hand just in case, but since we have solar, we seldom use it. We will be purchasing a second to parallel them together for AC use. That one will ride in the front, but we still would have to move them out to run them.

RE: Membership Renewal

Along the same lines, we have the GS Platinum Roadside Insurance. I have to renew the end of April. I received a bill in January saying it was $130, then I received another bill (because I ignored the first since it was not due yet) that said "Limited Time Offer" and it was now $140. So when I went online to my account, it said $140 is due so I called them. I was told yeah, something like that, then I was offered $124 a year if I renewed for two years at a time and set it up automatically. I don't like automatic charges on my CC, so they said I'll receive a notice 45 days in advance and can opt out. I'll keep my eye out for that. Second issue, we have an extended warranty and the same is happening with that. It's not due till the end of May, so I'll have to call in for the original price. It's just this year that this type of sales approach has been used. This shouldn't happen and we shouldn't have to feel like we are being charged extra over a bill not yet due. We budget our funds and don't have the money two months in advance of when it is due, but when my bills are due, they are paid on time.

RE: Verizon 55 Plus Plan

Well dang! We're not in Florida. What's with the discrimination?! :)

RE: Getting 5th wheeler next week

Look up. Be aware of what's around you as well as what's up wherever you drive. Manually measure the height of your FW, write or type it on a piece of paper and tape it to the inside upper left of your front windshield. You may know the height today, but can easily forget it when you need it the most. Swing - be aware of the swing of the end of your FW when turning. You'll avoid a lot of damage this way.

RE: Benefits of a Bedroom AC Unit?

Sane here on running both during the day as needed and turning off the bedroom unit at night.

Yes! I can see them. Thanks!

I can't see them either.
