RE: Planning trip through NM and AZ any cool points of interest?

I forgot to mention that there are tours from Alamagordo to Trinity Site, where the first atomic bomb test was conducted. You would have to research and find when those tours are conducted. I flew over that site once but didn't get to vist, as then the tours were only once a year. The Trinity Site is only open two days each year. One in the spring and the second in October. You would need to call to get exact dates.

RE: The best $50 I've spent!

scratching their head and asking 'where will the coffee maker fit?' That's exactly what I was doing :h. Coffee maker took valuable counter space. http://pic80.picturetrail.com/VOL992/4288072/22618539/376038255.jpg Until I did this. Mounted a shelf on two drawer guides and put coffee maker on. http://pic80.picturetrail.com/VOL992/4288072/22618539/377885640.jpg Put water in top and slid up to storing position. http://pic80.picturetrail.com/VOL992/4288072/22618539/377885587.jpg It's held up by an arm under shelf http://pic80.picturetrail.com/VOL992/4288072/22618539/378024338.jpg http://pic80.picturetrail.com/VOL992/4288072/22618539/378024309.jpg C.B. Now this is really using your head. Excellent job!

RE: Towing "movement" - How much is normal?

Based only on your description, I would guess you are experiencing more movement than you should. I pull a 37 foot TT with a Dodge dually (I realize dual wheels make a big difference) and have basically no movement at all. I would weigh the trailer properly (there is a good thread in Travel Trailers) and make adjustments as needed. Pulling a TT is nothing like pulling a boat.

RE: Inside Security Cameras?

I'm not trying to start a fight. I didn't understand from your original post that you were only interested in using the camera while you have work done on your rig. I am still interested if anyone has ideas about my questions concerning cameras that will provide a record up to the point that the camera itself is stolen. Obviously if a camera records to an internal SD card and the camera is stolen the recording is gone too.

RE: Inside Security Cameras?

So you are only interested in cameras to watch the techs working on your rig? You don't care about catching a thief in your rig who is not working on it? That was the intent of my questions.

RE: Inside Security Cameras?

OK,this is probably a stupid question but if you have a camera that records to an SD card, what is to prevent the thief from just taking the camera along with your other valuables? What do you do for a security camera at home? I can understand using a camera outside with the recording device located inside but how do the inside cameras work so that the recording is not stolen?

RE: Need OTA DVR advice

I have three of the Magnavox DVR's, two in the house and one in the TT. They work great. The only problem I have had was wearing out a remote which was easily replaced. It has an internal tuner so you can record one show while watching another show. We don't have any cable at home and rarely have it while traveling so all we use is an antenna.

RE: Where are you at?

We're not on the road. If we were, I would be happy to have you as a neighbor. :) That's what I'm talking about... Wish there were more people like you. I'm with you. I like meeting new people.

RE: Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas from New Mexico where it was snowing in the desert yesterday. Wishing safe travel for all who are on the road.

RE: Looking for parks and things to do in New Mexico in October

Early October is probably okay. The Alburqurque Balloon Festival is almost always near the third week of the month. Check the state online website for tourism to check other events during your stay. The Balloon Fiesta is actually the first full week of October every year and runs for 10 days. It is a nice destination. I like to head up to the northern mountains for some beautiful scenery. I like the Chama area or anywhere around the Taos or Red River areas. You can't go wrong anywhere in NM in October. The state parks in the southern part of the state are also nice. Rockhound State Park, Bottomless Lakes State Park, and others are excellent that time of year.

RE: GPS units

We also have the Garmin RV 760 LMT and I only trust it on major highways. I really like the split display that shows what lane you should be in. It has lead us wrong more often than right when on back roads. I never trust it.

RE: Arizona to North Carolina

I prefer the southern route also. I avoid I40 in Arkansas unless I absolutely have to take it. I prefer to stay south and then come north through Atlanta.

RE: 5er to TT

I'm not sure why everyone considers it moving "up" from a TT to a 5er other than the 5er is higher off the ground. Our Open Range Journeyer has everything we need including a washer/dryer location (we chose not to get one), tons of storage, and lots of room. It even has a ceiling fan like many 5ers. There is plenty of room in the bathroom and I am a big guy (close to 400 lbs.). It also has fewer steps than a similar 5er which is much nicer for my knees. No problem pulling it with my Ram.

RE: Trade a 23" Salem CE for 18" Pioneer CK

I wouldn't fit in either one. A 23 inch trailer vs. an 18 inch trailer. Nope, neither one. :B
