RE: Problem filling the tank!

Our Chevy Class C was fine, until it wasn't. Then it would barely take gas without shutting off. Then the next trip, after sitting several months, it was fine again. I decided it happened from topping off, and messing up the canister. So, no more topping off. So far so good. I do seem to have to turn the nozzle to the side a bit, in any case.

RE: Highway 50 followup...

That is a nice pan of gold. We stayed in the Escapees park in Congress AZ for a week last winter. Many of the seasonal campers are into prospecting. The typical daily haul is less than what you have in that pan.

RE: bug removal

I think dryer sheets contain silicone. If that matters to anyone.

RE: Picking up a 2000 Lazy Daze 26.5 mid-bath

We would love to own a 27 foot LD. The layout is very good, and I love all the windows.

RE: WiFi hotspots: What's the best product/plan for a part-timer?

As a luxury solution, we have a the standalone Verizon MiFi hotspot. Even though we could just use our phones. It adds $10 a month to our bill. It's worth that to not hear the DW grumble about the extra steps with using the phones. Although I offset that cost by reducing our data allowance during months we don't travel. But I could do that without the MiFi too. Turn it on, and it's ready to go. :)

RE: Furrion Power Cord Issue at New Pedestal

Good post. I have run into the exact same thing. Like you, I used the 50-30 adapter to make it work. I don't know if this is a new model of pedestal we are running into, that the Furrion people didn't take into account, or what.

RE: Force router reset while away

We have an internet phone "land line". It calls us if a freeze and flood alarm goes off. So when we snowbird, we need to be sure it stays up. We use a mechanical timer that resets the router in the middle of the night. The timer and phone gizmo is plugged into a UPS to be able to call us even if the power is off.

Burl, yes.

RE: Motor oil weight

1988 would be back in the era where manufacturers were told by the EPA that if they wanted to use low viscosity oil in the EPA fuel economy tests, they had to recommend that same viscosity to the consumer. So that is when 5W-30 became the recommendation. I'm not saying it is bad. I now own a car that takes 0W-20. But I am saying that IMO unless you operate your 1988 motorhome in temps lower than 10 or 20 degrees F, you could certainly go with the 15W-40, or 10W-30. You'll do no harm and maybe some good, given the heavy MH load, in warm weather.

RE: There is a crispness in the morning air.

In central IL and it's supposed to be 90 and humid here tomorrow and worse the next day. Low's in the 70's. Felt like fall was coming for about 2 days. It has to be the last gasp of summer. The last few days were sure nice.

RE: There is a crispness in the morning air.

If you're thinking about the same thing I will tell you it feels like we're always packing and unpacking. That is the downside to what we currently have going on. With the MH you packed it once and took off for the winter. I have considered a parked or stored fiver in AZ, and then maybe a big B, or a small B+, for touring. I'd probably try to leave a car with the fiver too. Sometimes these ideas of what is the best RV comes down to: the one you already have. :)

RE: There is a crispness in the morning air.

I like your two fiver idea. But, do you normally tow the small one on the ways down and back?

RE: directions to Elkhart, IN

Essentially: I-75N to I-74W to US31N There will be bypass routes around the cities on that routing.

RE: transporting a dish tailgater

There are cab mounts for putting the Tailgater on a truck. There used to be something for it to go onto a ladder but it was very expensive. I don't know if that mount is still sold.

RE: Ford Gas Chassis for 38 footers ?

The gas station thing could be a big pain, I would think.

RE: My 2016 Alaska stats ($)

Are the MPG and fuel figures combined numbers for MH and toad? Anyone know: What does a weekly Class C rental cost in AK?

RE: 2017 Honda Ridgeline

The Pilot used to have, and probably still does, rear wheels that coasted except when the computers detected wheel slip in the front drive wheels. Then some drive thingy (that's the engineering term) would be engaged to the rears. I'm pretty sure the Ridgelines have used the same system. So it's possible the Pilot/Ridgelines could be dolly towed, if the rear wheels coast normally with the power off. It would be interesting to see. The early Pilots could be flat towed BTW.

RE: Rear Corner Bed- bothersome?

Our corner bed is a full 60x80 queen. More than half of the 60 inch foot is open. The person on the outside has to clamber over the foot of the bed, more so than over the other person. It's not a big deal for us, but I'm sure it depends a lot of the person's physical fitness. It lets us have a nice big permanent bed in a small RV. In our list of must haves for the next RV, a walkaround bed is not a high priority at all. In a perfect world, we would have two twins that double as lounging areas. http://www.forestriverinc.com/ImageHandler.ashx?ImageID=5729 width=640

RE: Silverado 1500, my recent experience

Yeah, those P-metric truck tires are pretty flimsy for towing, in my experience.
