RE: Road Trip 1 - EZ Pass?

choo choo - sorry I have a 26 foot trailer with 2 axles.Travelling through the states that I mentioned, I would go by what I said. NJ and MD, I had no problems, and no problems with NY when going by what I do. I have not been west of NYS with my camper, but that will change Thursday. I do not think I will be seeing any tolls west of NYS on my travels to Sandusky, OH. If you're taking interstates you'll be on OH turnpike, takes EZ Pass or I Pass.

RE: Chicago to Upper state New York and beyond questions....

Thanks everyone!!! Getting our Passports renewed now. We have to make sure we take our lab's current vaccination tags with (need anything else for a pet?). We might head farther East towards Maine and slowly come back down. I'll check into the IPass as I'll need both for my RV and toad. You only need 1 I-pass. just register all license plates with I-Pass. I move mine between motorhome and Jeep all the time and always charged correct tolls.

RE: Chicago to Upper state New York and beyond questions....

You didn't say where in IL. We're in western Chicago burbs and go back to Ithaca NY to see grandkids every year. Take I 90/80 to 480 at Cleveland to I271 back to I 90 in OH. Driving at 62mph, we stop at Erie KOA after about 8 hours drive time which includes fuel stops, food, etc. Wife has had it at 8 hours on the road, no longer likes those 500+ miles per day That puts us about an hour +/- from Buffalo and Niagara Falls. Be sure to have or get an I-Pas, saves time and $$$$$. Coming back home, drop down to PA turnpike to get to Gettysburg are and western Maryland for Antietam battlefield. If you need an overnight stop in OH, the turnpike has RV spots at MM75 & 238. $20 a night.

RE: If You Don't Like Windows10?

... There is no longer any need for Classic Shell. Win 8.1 Update which came out this past winter can boot to desktop and has a pseudo-Start menu at the bottom left just like Win 7 - all from Microsoft without running an overlay shell ... So how does one fire up this feature in 8.1? Start windows 8.1 to desktop

RE: "Refurbished" (?) Laptops

x2 on Lenovo outlet. You can get a high powered business laptop for what you would pay for a basic laptop elsewhere.

RE: Who has overnighted at an Ohio Tpk rest area?

Normally stay at the westbound ones on our way from Ithaca NY to Chicago. The one at mm238 is a back in type altho motorhomes with toads can fit. The one at mm75 is pull thru. We travel in June and have yet to see either one full. Don't notice the noise

Protect All or Liquid Glass or 303

Which would be better on a '01 Suncruiser? No oxidation, just needs a waxing/protectant to bring back shine.

RE: installer refrigerator

Recommendations for someone to install residential refrigerator in Indiana, Ohio or Michigan. Class A What Class A? It's a relatively easy thing to do. I had a RV shop remove old one, cap off propane. Went to Lowe's, bought a 10 cu. ft Whirlpool and slid it right in empty space. Did have to trim 1/2" off opening. That was on my '94 Adventurer.

RE: Looking To Buy A Dash Cam, Pros and Cons

Here's some Dash Cam Posts. Maybe they will help. I'm also interested in a dash cam. The more I read, the more confused I get. :) ... x2! Have kinda/sorta been thinking about this one as a starter. Anyone have experience with it? DashCam Look for the following: Novatek NT96650 processor and the Aptina AR0330 CMOS sensor. The one you linked to is the older processor.

RE: Amazing things some folks do

Well some of us are smart enough to know which white hose is for drinking and which white hose is for gray water, just because you can't see the marks or the difference in my hoses I can. Guess you would have a stroke if you watched me dumping my sewer without gloves using my white hose to wash out the sewer hose and scratching my rear at the same time. X2 And do you have to wear gloves when hooking up the hose? Or do you just use gloves when dumping?

Microsoft Street and Trips sends you down 65 farther West and not getting on 75 until past Chattanooga. Disregard the days, that is based on the miles per day that I have set.

RE: Newbies renting brand spanking new RV....help!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/City_Museum its about a block from where my sister lives, you can spend a DAY there. http://www.magichouse.org/ for the younger ones https://www.stlouis-mo.gov/government/departments/parks/parks/Forest-Park.cfm St Louis Zoo, Art Museum, Science center, History Museum and Muni Opera all free admission, some pay areas. part of the deal with Forest park being willed tot he city was that it had to reamin accessible and free to the common man, so most of the attractions either have free seats or admission with pay for special atttractions. if you are picking up in Elkhart and running south Indy has some great attractions as well but i am not as familiar with them. Not sure why you keep bringing up St. Louis attractions. StL is out of the way for Chicago to FL. Best route out of Chicago is I 57 south to I 24 thru Kentucky to Nashville I65 south. Avoids Chattanooga

RE: Auto Park Brake Issue or Not?

Had a'94 Adventurer. No resistance on parking brake means the cable to the APB needs adjusting. Would recommend you buy "The Little Green Switch" now and have it as a spare in case you ever need it.

RE: TomTom Horrible Routing

Has anyone else tried using their TomTom with and without IQ Routes enabled? My Go Live 1535TM has IQ routes and I've never had a problem. Had it for several years and wouldn't switch to anything lse. About a year ago got the itch for something new so I bought a Garmin, forget which model. Tried the 2 side by side. The TomTom was more accurate and gave me traffic info while the Garmiin could not find any traffic info. Returned the Garmin immediately. Plus the TomTom updates info at least weekly.

RE: How many of you do this?

You totally missed the point. Do you really think he expected that to happen? Of course not. That's why it's called an accident. It's unexpected. Do you really believe that you personally are immune to the unexpected? This kind of thing happens more than you might think. I've had a nozzle spit out a bit of gas when just taking it off the pump on more than one occasion. If you bothered to read the post I quoted they were inferring that this NEVER happens, "show me one post" they said. We have the internet, it took SECONDS to find that article. Ignorance is a choice in the world we live in. I did read the post. I also have had gas spit out at times. However, the distance between the pump and my refrig is at least 10 feet and opposite side of MH. That's why I'm confident that in the open, the chances of vapors AT the refrig will not reach the required 1.2% concentration to ignite.
