RE: Class A Handicapped equipped - keep it or replace it?

Sell it. I'm on my second RV with a wheelchair lift and I be that sucker will sell quick. Don't take out the lift, that will be the main selling point.

RE: Garmin RV vs Semi?

I'll tell you this, I have owned both the RV760LMT and still own a Dezl 760. Forget about hazardous routing on either unit. We routinely travel to Philly and go down I-70 to hit I-95. Both units will try to route me via downtown Baltimore and through the tunnels (No propane allowed) no matter what the settings. I like the Dezl because of the customization dashboards but when I travel that route, I switch to car mode. Besides that, we stay at the Philly KOA and both units try to route me all around the area (45 minutes extra) even though the routes are approved for RV's. Look at your maps, know your route. For me, GPS is nothing more that a trip minder, how long, how far, time to there, etc.

RE: Onan 5.5 HGJAB Stalls

Change the fuel pump yourself. Easy to do. Mine would run like that for a bit then stop. Random. No rhyme or reason.

RE: spray lube for jacks?

Have had nothing but HWH jacks. Used ATF, silicone, WD40, and long 2x4. The best without a doubt is WD40. I spray em' down now before a trip and they are good to go without having to get the board out and give them that last few inch lift. All new springs so that is not the issue.

RE: U.P. Michigan Recommendations

The Antlers is a good place for a burger. Tell them you want to hear the boat whistle and look at all the things hanging from the walls and ceilings. It is Sault Ste. MI on the road to Aune Osborn CG. diff'rent strokes, I guess. we found The Antlers to be over-priced, poor service and mediocre quality.x2

RE: Fiberglas Shower Floor Repair

I would google bathtub reapair in your area. There are many companies to do the work. I used this company near me to do work. You would never know it was done, the results were superb.

RE: RV decal removal and painting them on

Had it done in NE TN for around $6K. Wasn't cheap but for me worth every penny spent.

RE: 13,500 AC replacement

Don't waste your money on a heat pump unit, stick with just an AC. I have NOT been happy since I put one on. It works, just not like I thought it would and wouldn't have spent the money if I had known ahead of time.

RE: Philadelphia advice

Just left the area, daughter lives down in the bowels of Philly. Drive from KOA was about 1 hour, if there wasn't a jam and if the traffic was flowing. Depending on what you want. If your goal is downtown looking at Philly, I would use Timberlane or Park & Ride. If you want beautiful countryside at the end of the day to sip a glass of wine, go to the KOA. There is another campground up in Hatfield but the drive down to Philly sucks too, and that campground is bla. If you stay at the KOA, PM me and I will provide you with a great route to take into town (well, better than the GPS).

RE: Lake Superior great circle tour

Every time I visit the UP during the green months, there's been lots of mosquitoes, and they're on you fast... not much you can do but bath in bug spray and enjoy the beauty of the area. Near as all this is to me, I don't have much other information... take it for granted I suppose. I'm considering a circle tour of the UP, something like this: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/31198682/UP-circle.PNG width=640 Subscribed to hear from folks more knowledgeable :)Munising to Grand Marais should be along H-58. It is paved. I took my 37' motorhome on that drive.

RE: Pensacola Beach RV resort

Some find Ft. Pickens a nice place but I found it horrible. Had reservations but it was around 100deg in June and after driving through Pickens, just couldn't see wasting my time.

Coleman HP2 Heat Pump Thermostat

I really dislike the thermostat logic they have designed to use with this heat pump. It basically operates using a series of "lockouts" vs. using an outside temperature sensor. I would like to use a different thermostat that includes outside temps so I can use setpoints instead of lockouts. Any ideas? Thanks.

RE: Ford F53 CHF (Cheap Handling Fix)

I did the CHF and didn't see much improvement at all. Plus, it was too tough to try and reconfigure one of the arms which kept getting loose. Put it back to stock and haven't looked back.

RE: Train system for Philadephia

The train station in Downington is only 13 minutes from the West Chester KOA. 1 Hour train trip into Philly.

RE: Summer trip to Philadelphia, PA...where to stay?

I might suggest you consider staying at Oak Grove Park. The campground is situated about 30 miles north of Philly. You can drive to the Philadelphia airport in about 60 minutes via the turnpike & the blue route. The sites at Oak Grove are all level, nice size and is situated in a very pleasant, peaceful neighborhood. You have easy access to many of the historic, educational and amusement activities that your family would appreciate. Click here just to view a few. Tens minutes from the campground you can catch the train for a 55 minute ride into Philly. Then a 3 block walk to Historic Area. The campground fees are very reasonable and it is not unusual for people staying 3 and 4 months. The place is family owned and very neatly maintained. Hope this helps. If you would like more info please feel free to send me a private message.Don't believe the links (Oakgroves) page saying their park is peaceful and quiet. Not. Cowpath is a real busy streat and when I stayed, the noise about drove me nuts.

RE: Summer trip to Philadelphia, PA...where to stay?

There is the Philly park and ride place. If it is just you and da man working at airport and you only want to be tourist, this place may be for you. http://campusparkandride.com/rv/index.html The next closest is the campground over in Jersey, otherwise, any other Philly campgrounds will be just too far.

RE: ALK releases CoPilot app specific for RV's

Sorry. Found copilot not easy to use and cumbersome. Will stick with my Garmin. FWIW- I did give copilot a try, running it side-by-side with my Garmin GPS. I preferred the Garmin hands down.
