RE: Moving from Hybrid to TT

I did the same move a few years ago. The only thing I really had to get was new sheets for the bed. Oh, I also needed a new truck. :B

RE: Cable slides

We have an Open Range with three slides. No problems at all and they are easy to work on if needed. I think there was a bad batch of motor/gearboxes that caused some early problems but they have apparently been fixed.

RE: Albuquerque Hot Air Ballon Festival?

I'm not sure what going with a tour group gets you. Probably a lot cheaper to reserve on your own. I've never camped there since I live in Albuquerque.

RE: keystone montana or openrange 3x

I don't know much about the Open Range 3X but our Open Range TT has been great. Very few problems and the build quality is great. I am not familiar with the Montanas.

RE: Newbie: Feedback on Highland Ridge Open Range?

We have been happy with our 2013 Open Range TT. It is not a light weight so kind of hard to compare. We're in the 12,000# range and pull with a one ton diesel. We've had a couple of problems but never anything I could not fix. Never back to the dealer for anything so far.

RE: New Mexico Springtime Camping

Agree with the last two posters. Southern NM is great in the spring. Almost any of the state parks are great. I like Rockhound (near Deming) and Bottomless Lakes (near Roswell).

RE: 08 Rockwood Roo Hot Water Heater Question.....

You have a SUBURBAN water heater It uses an 3/4" NPT 'anode rod' that screws into the drain hole (Atwood uses the 1/2" Nylon plug) Tank is Steel GLASS-LINED tank DO NOT use external heat or go hammering on tank. Drain anode rod hex head requires a 1 1/16" socket (6 point best) Along with a 6 1/2" extension 1/2" drive and breaker bar Try to tighten plug a bit at first then unscrew (Water supply off....pressure relieved !!) That's the trick all right. Relieve the pressure through the relief valve but leave all faucets closed. Once loosened it would be a good idea to stand to stand to one side while removing. You will definitely want to stand to the side as you remove the anode rod. ;)

RE: Best RV GPS

We have the Garmin RV760LMT and it leads us astray about as often as it is correct. I had an old model Garmin and it was always right. We were on I-40 coming through Oklahoma City. The Garmin RV told us to exit the highway due to a low bridge clearance ahead. All of the big rigs were staying on the highway so we did too. The Garmin kept warning me about the low bridge to the point where it asked me to confirm that I had read the message and they would not be responsible for an accident. I confirmed and stayed on I-40 all the way to New Mexico with no low bridges. It constantly directs me onto dirt roads when the paved road I am on is the correct route. And yes, I have updated to the latest maps. I never tow without my trucker road atlas.

RE: Gurgling sound in propane tank

I noticed a gurgling sound coming from our propane tanks a couple of years ago. I asked about it and didn't get any responses. I have not heard it since and we have used the heater.

RE: Slide out roof and leaves

Let me start by saying I am handicapped and can't climb a ladder. My wife is afraid to climb one so I had to come up with another idea. I put a camera on a pole and use my Garmin as a monitor to inspect the slides first. If they need to be cleaned off we just use a heavy towel with a nylon cord tied to each end. Throw one cord over the slide and then we can pull the towel back and forth across the slide until cleaned off. We have three slides and it takes fifteen to twenty minutes to clean them all.

I-40 Road Condition

Has anyone driven I-40 eastbound from New Mexico to North Carolina recently? How are the road condition? Any areas of construction causing traffic headaches? Thanks for any information.

Security Camera Question

I am thinking about installing some cameras to keep an eye on the house while we are camping. I was looking at the Blink cameras. They use the home wi-fi system to upload video/pictures to the cloud and allow monitoring from a smart phone. Unfortunately they require an upload speed of 2 Mbps minimum. Our lousy CenturyLink only has an upload of from .4 to .75 Mbps. Are there any cameras that will work with this speed? Any help is appreciated.

RE: Open Range or Lance

We love our Open Range TT but it is not a light model. Very few problems since we bought it new over 3 years ago. I did change out the junk tires to some good Maxxis tires after one year.

RE: Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta is soon. Any tips or comments?

Don't miss Old Town as someone mentioned. I'd also take a trip on the Tram. Be prepared for cold and/or hot weather. It can be cold in the mornings and hot in the afternoons. If you take the tram ride, take a jacket as it could be real cold in short sleeved. You go from about 5500 ft. elevation to 10,400 ft. and the weather can really change. If you don't do anything else but watch the balloons, be sure to get away from the fiesta grounds to get some great New Mexican food. Have fun. We'll step out our back door and watch the balloons too.

RE: Taking the High Road from Santa Fe to Taos

I would not do it with my 59 ft. rig. As others have suggested, use your toad and leave the MH in the campground. There are some tight turns.

RE: Where to find things

That should have been a question during your PDI.

RE: Knock It OFF!

We're you able to get back to sleep? I probably would have had a few choice words with the offender. It probably would have ruined both of our days. Just lucky his behavior is the exception not the rule. I definitely would have spoken softly to him.

RE: Church Families Watching Service Camping

Excellent idea.

RE: I40 west roadside must sees?

I would spend a lot more time at the spots along I-40 and less time at the grand canyon. One day was plenty at the canyon. Just my opinion but my DW agrees so I guess two opinions. Spend a day in Santa Fe, NM. It's an hour from I-40. Ride the tram in Albuquerque. It's just minutes from I-40 but you will want to plan on half a day including the tram ride. You can spend the rest of that day in Old Town Albuquerque which is about two minutes from I-40. I'd take a couple of days in Northern NM and ride the Cumbres and Toltec Railroad in Chama, NM. Fun ride and beautiful scenery.

RE: Cool Mods - Thread restored 10/18/2012

Oh that's a good idea too. But I was wondering about the tank itself. Think I've seen them vertical on top of the bumper but it must be held by something. I have not done this yet but plan to. I have seen others that use a cheap hand truck (like delivery people use for several boxes) with the wheels removed and then mounted to the bumper. The empty tank can then be secured to the hand truck with straps or even bungee cords.
