RE: Avoiding Atlanta and Nashville?

Nashville is no problem if you know what lane to be in and that takes at least one drive through in each direction or a good look at a road map and a GPS. We go right through the middle of Atlanta regardless of time of day. We found the bypass to be worse than the direct route.

RE: Cab insulation

When I'm pulling and driving down the highway the engine sounds about the same as a gas engine.

RE: Replace Screen Door Hinge?

If it is like my door/screen door unit you will have to remove the door, screen door and then remove the hinge. Then, you can figure out how to move the pin enough to remove the lower hinge. This all sounds like a lot of work, but with two persons and an electric screw driver it is relatively easy.

RE: I need a reality check

I my experience wifi by and large in any RV park is just barely adequate for sending and receiving Email. Anything that uses more bandwidth than that is in for a shock.

RE: Furnace BTUs 18 vs 30

Regardless of whether it is BTU or BTUH I would definitely go with the furnace with the larger BTU (BTUH) number. In cold weather, in a trailer, you need all the heat you can get. The 30 BTU unit in our fiver is borderline adequate when the outside temperature goes below 20°F.

RE: winter dry camping - hygiene?

Just don't wash like a crewman I had on an off shore ocean voyage. He washed his body with denatured alcohol. It took half a day before we could stand his eye watering antiseptic odor.

RE: Plumbing?

I wish all the plumbing was exposed and easy to repair. Our present fiver, which we purchased new, has over 100,000 miles on it and we have had very few plumbing repairs. What repairs we have had was to pipes and/or tubing that was accessible.

RE: Flying J diesel price

Flying J prices went up after the about went bankrupt and Pilot bought them. Now the prices at Flying J reflect the higher prices Pilot has always had. I never went to Pilot now I don't go to Flying J anymore.

Since I am retired and over 75 years of age I am not looking for a new truck even tho it would be fun to own a new one. I have decided that the new trucks are so expensive (Over priced?) that I am not going to think of buying a new one even tho I could well afford to do so. My present truck, purchased new, has 100,520 miles on it. I can do a lot of repairs on it for a fraction of the cost of a new truck.

RE: insurance

We have insured all of our vehicles and fifth wheel with Geico for over 20 years now. We have had good luck with them.

RE: Replace side door? Whole thing

I would think you could take off the door. You have to remove the row of screws on the piano hinge. Then, straighten the hinge and reinstall it. This would be much less expensive than buying a new door. My door was looking rather haggard. I removed it, took it apart and hauled the exterior panel to an auto body shop and had it painted. They matched the color of the fiver perfectly. It now looks GREAT!

RE: Which State Has the Best Drivers?

We have been everywhere in United States and Canada many times. We find that drivers are basically the same all over. Some good. Some bad. Some discourteous. Some too timid. Some too aggressive. You find all kind of drivers everywhere. The question is, "What sort of a driver are YOU"!

RE: A or B selector switch

I have used two of these AB switches in a combination to switch between my direcTV, campground cable and roof antenna. They work just fine. you just have to remember the switch positions.

RE: Cruise Control Downshifting

I have learned to help the cruise control on slight grades, such as going up on an overpass. I press the accelerator down slightly which increases the speed slightly. I hold the accelerator down till I have topped the grade and then slowly take my foot off the accelerator. It takes a few tries to learn how to do it correctly. But, I too think Ford should provide some individual tuning of the speed control as everybody has a different load. One standard computer program works for only an insignificant few. For the rest of us it would be nice if we had some control of the computer parameters.

RE: waking to dead new batteries

My first thought was that you were running the furnace overnight and, since it runs on 12 volts, it was running down your batteries faster than they could be charged.

RE: For the Ford lovers

The first 2015 F150 rolled off the assembly line this morning. When you say "rolled" , is that drove or pushed? :)jk There is always some wise ass.

RE: I75 South in Atlanta area

We go through Atlanta a lot. We have found going straight thru is best for us.

RE: Propane tank makes "pinging" noise.

I have never heard of this problem before, but I would suspect that it has something to do with the valves coming out of the tank or tanks. Perhaps the valve that determines which tank is being used. If you have two tanks does the ping sound exist no matter which tank is being used?
