RE: Got a price on an install comments...

The baseplate should take about 2 hours to install according to blue ox. Since it's a plug in wiring harness, I would think it could be done in 2 hours or less.Can't understand why they would need 2 days. I have 2 quotes to install a demco baseplate on an 05 Jeep Liberty, one is $185, other is $150.

RE: Philadelphia/Wilmington,DE area

Any recommendations for a campground in the Philly area? Will be visiting SIL in Hockessin this Sept. Check out the KOA in West Chester PA... Just north of Hockessin.... Been there several times. Cat gets car (motorhome) sick on the roads in. Was looking for something else, maybe a little south of Wilmington. We'll be coming from Ithaca, NY.

RE: Next Exit 2016

A very popular highway information book for RVers, the Next Exit, is now available in the 2016 version from Amazon (possibly others) for $15.25. Now, does this list the hwys by State or is it listed by the numerical interstates?? By state with interstates numerically

Not bothering to read every response. DH was taught somewhere along the line to double flash his headlights to indicate he was going to pass a semi. Real, real, old wives tale or did any one else do this? No,thread is about flashing so semi knows it's OK to pull back in.

I also make sure it's safe to change lanes before doing so, regardless if someone flashes their lights. However, if some pays me this curtesy, I'll acknowledge them. X2. If someone flashesfor me, I still pull over when I feel comfortable, but will then flash a thank you.

RE: winnebago adventurer 35u cargo storage size

How about giving the dimensions of the chairs? Might be easier for someone to know what you need.

RE: gps on cell phone no data connection needed

Tom Tom mobile, but to have it talk to you you have to upgrade for $14.99. You download the maps so they are free, you're paying for the voice turn by turn, etc.

RE: Chicago to Florida travel route thoughts

DW and I will be heading for the Jacksonville, FL area from east central Illinois around the 9th of Jan. We went down this fall which was our first trip to Florida with the motorhome. Took the Pennyrile to I-24 and then I-75 down to I-10 in Florida, not a fan of Nashville, Chattanooga or Atlanta. I have been checking out all the suggestions trying to figure out the best way to avoid as much of the city traffic as possible. I am thinking about I-24 to Nashville then I-65 down as far as Montgomery, AL then US-231 down to I-10. We will still have Nashville, Tn and Birmingham, AL and we have never been to Birmingham but it seems like a good trade for Chattagoona and Atlanta. The internet maps show this as only about 60 miles and two hours longer drive over the I-24 to I-75 route. One good traffic jam in Atlanta could give more delay than that. This would be interstate all the way except for the 140 miles of US 231, What kind of road and conditions are we looking at for this strech? Thanks, Jim. Last October we left Chicago for Pensacola. Took 57 to 24 to 65 to 10. Took 2 1/2 days but was minimal traffic. There was construction in Birmingham. Probably was farther than taking 231, but no traffic lights, erc.

RE: Toll roads

No monthly fee, or any other fee for that matter, on the Illinois I-Pass. It is compatible with EZ Pass for cars only. From the I-Pass web site: Vehicles (including their trailers) that exceed four tires and two axles, and that are traveling on E-ZPass roads, must exchange their I-PASS transponder for the compatible E-ZPass "blue" transponder available at every Tollway Customer Service Center and at select Road Ranger outlets. My I-Pass handles our cars or the truck and trailer on IL tollways. When we head for the Northeast next summer we will exchange it for the "blue" transponder. Actually depends on how old your transponder is. My transponder works correctly whether it's in my Jeep or in MH towing the Jeep. You should contact IPass and get one of the new much smaller transponders. They don't issue the blue one's anymore. If you have the old one, I think there is a date on it which is the replacement date. Website is not updated.

RE: Smartphone or Stand Alone GPS?

Just downloaded TomTom Go mobile to both phone and tablet. Works without wifi or data connection and has all the features of the TomTom standalone. You get 50 miles per month free with all features, then you lose voice directions. They charge $36 for 3 years unlimited mileage. So far it works as well as my TomTom 1535, showing exit lanes, etc. My 10" tablet is a lot easier to see over the 5" screen on the Tom Tom.

RE: Older Florida Sunpass may not work after 12/31

Forgive this probably deemed ignorant question, but what do out of country, out of state RVers do, that travel through various states/provinces and hit unmanned/unsuspected toll booths as ambling along that don't accept cash any more? Never had a problem paying as we go through, but I'm hearing more and more are being unmanned/non cash and you need to have a prepaid pass of some description. It's not always viable or easy for out of country temporary folks sometimes to obtain maybe this EZ/Sunpass referenced I would have thought. Also I know we have often come across a toll booth we didn't realize would be there in advance being often serendipitous travellers at times. IIRC I remember someone mentioning something about an unmanned bridge toll in BC Canada that they had to just drive through not knowing how/where to pay. What are the consequences of doing so when at that moment in time you have no other option? FTW I know in FL they take a picture of your vehicle and mail you a statement at the end of the month. (Just got my bill with very clear picture from Ocrober) IL gives you a chance to pay online, they have signs after toll of how to do it. If you travel a lot in midwest/northeast, probably wouldn't hurt to get an I-Pass from IL. No charge for unit or monthly charges, just keep a balance in your account
