RE: Avoiding Washington and Baltimore

Perhaps patience is a virtue. However, living in Baltimore 32 years, unless it is late at night or my destination is related to the 95/495 corridor, I use the Key Bridge, 301 to 95/295. Unless I am leaving from a DE location, then will take 13/Bay Bridge Tunnel and navigate back to 95 as necessary. We all pick our poison differently.

RE: Best route from Allentown PA to Long Island NY to Calverton

****** DO NOT PLUG IT INTO YOUR GPS, OR WAZE **** I travel to our Long Island facility all the time for work. The waze app does not give a **** if your towing and will take you on the wrong roads.. IF it says parkway in the name, it will most likely have a height restriction, possibly as low as 10'. From the south, I take 95 to the GW Bridge, to the Throgs Neck Bridge ( rt 295 ).. take that to the Long Island Expressway,,, LIE.. rt 495 east X2...Most direct route and IGNORE the GPS. I make the run several times a year starting at 0700 from Baltimore and hit Garden City with good traffic by 1100 with a MH and a toad. Coming back, I leave at 0400 and can be back in 4 hours with one stop. All things working out of course. Yeah, the CBW has potholes, deep sewer grates and the darkness can really make you believe you are in some type of death race adventure. Yep, some days it is white knuckle and my BP is off the charts. All part of the fun.

RE: Do We Need to Access Eastern Arc Dish Satellites

Thanks all for the input. We'll be springing for the Pathway x2. It'll fit just fine in the back seat of the TV. Good choice. The Pathway X2 has not failed me the last 4 years, even in very dense overhead tree canopies in the wilds of Canada. The Winegard TR-1518 Satellite Tripod Mount is a great addition.

RE: Timonium MD RV Show

Spent 6 hours. I would say there was quite the variety of RVs of every shape and size. As for the Class C length you desire, there were.

RE: Fire extinguisher

I carry two 5 pounders as well. Always one in the toad too. Better to have and not need than need and not have. BTW, I did need the OE one the first year I owned the RV. Although it was sufficient to put out the inside fire which had been working for a minute or so, I then realized an additional one would really be a bonus.

RE: Onan Generaor - 10 yr old

I am not a rocket scientist and always follow a good post. Although only 7 years in my MH, I have noticed a similar situation. I do the routine maintenance, have similar usage hours and exercise it on a load 2 hours a month. I am of the belief that the start up lag, more noticeable in colder temps of course, is about priming and then fresh gas getting through. Once it kicks in, runs smoothly.

RE: Over cab storage

No reason to remove the mattress. "Storage" is in the mind of the beholder. Although I rarely have anyone sleeping up there it has become, as others have observed, a place for many soft things, extra bedding and for me a host of things that may be set away in transit and brought back down when set-up. I don't know if I would want to anchor anything up there per se. It is quite utile otherwise. I never wanted an entertainment center in the cab over for that very reason.

RE: Weekend travel MA to FL

Baltimore south as far as Richmond VA can be a crapshoot on 95, even Sat-Sun. No longer a crapshoot. It is a sure thing for being a nightmare all week, N/O Baltimore as well. As for the pros/cons for 95 versus 81, I would take the chance of possible funky weather than all the tolls and wall to wall 95 traffic. I've come down from Gloucester a few times and 95 is only an option when heading to Long Island. To each their own. It is hard to determine what poison one prefers to pick.

RE: Winter is coming - question re gas and generator maintenance

I would never dispute any information that is prudent and offered with merit. I have run my Onan genny religiously since brand new, every month for 2 hours under load, regardless of weather and/or fuel tank capacity, unless of course it is near 1/4 full which it never is while parked. I have used Stabil or Sea Foam only as a preventative if I do not head out for weeks at a time in the winter. To this date the genny has worked flawlessly with minimum attention other than an oil change and spot inspections. The same exercise time goes for my stand alone Champion 9500 genny. No issues. Reading the forums it appears some choose the 1/2 hour run time and others go with the 1-2 hour run time. To each his own. I can only report good things for my exercise schedule.

RE: 30 and 31 ft. C's

Been with mine since day one fully loaded and with a toad the last 3 years. Just over 25,000. Yeah, I need to be patient on more steeper elevations but once done with that it is all good. I get 7-8 mpg with the toad and almost 10 mpg without.

RE: Hurricane Irma

Heading out for 3 weeks Thursday, North and West. That is the good news. The not so good is I will be 13 hours away from home should the poo hit the fan. One day at a time for all of us. Certainly glad Irma is not coming in via the Gulf.

RE: brake buddy

I never had a fuse blown by my BB but I seemed to have a lack of consistent power when using the toad DC plug. After I sent BB back to have it checked out with no issues found, they sent me the dedicated fuse line plug and I have not had an issue since. However, some time after that I also had to replace my toad battery and I think that also was contributing to the power issue. Although I have gone back and forth before I bought the BB and after as to another braking mechanism, I have nothing but good things to speak to and the techs are very deliberate and friendly when I have called about concerns.

RE: Do you sleep in your rig at home?

Probably once a month just for fun. Couple years back, and within a year time frame, my area lost power for two weeks each time due to nasty weather events. Fortunately my stand alone genny did enough of a good job to keep the RV and required items in the house up to speed. Other than the fact a totally blacked out neighborhood for blocks on end was eerie, it was just like camping!

RE: Toad or No Toad

Bought my 32' Sunseeker new. Did not want to sell my F-150 to buy a toad. Managed 3 years without one but it was mostly due to always being with friends or a family member and managing. I roll solo and finally had enough of no secondary transportation. And Enterprise does not always come to you while camping. With rare exception, my CR-V follows me everywhere, whether I need it or not for weeks at a time. And I kept my F-150 which has been a benefit when the CR-V is down or vice versa. It's all a matter of cost versus utility.

RE: Sewer Hose wont fit in **New** Minnie Bumper

Why not go with the Sewer Solution? Been using same for 11 years. No fuss, no mess, and much more convenient and compact.

RE: TPMS systems Eez or Tireminder

TireMinder with the repeater since 2011. Normally cannot tire pressure does not register until I am rolling. Three flats over that time while on the road at highway speed and it alerted me to two. There was a programming glitch, perhaps human error, and one was not picked up. However, it has alerted me to high temp/pressure which gave me an opportunity to inspect and deflate, allowing me to continue on with no further issues.

RE: Verizon?

Been with VZW for 20 years. Not perfect but it has gotten better.

RE: Questions about towing CRV's/Jeep Liberty

My CR-V mostly 60-65 but when up to 70 briefly, no issues.
