RE: Motorhoming-The Dream vs Reality

At some point, quality hotels and resorts look attractive! Yes they do but, when you're rolling down the highway and hit a 5+ mile and several hour backup of stopped traffic, the food, water and toilet onboard make the motor home priceless. :C And if it is an older motorhome it is much more believable that the reason you pulled off the road on to the shoulder and turned off the engine started the generator and are in the back under AC is that "it overheats in stop and go traffic." And you do not need a tow truck since it will not overheat once traffic starts flowing again.

RE: HWY 2 between West Glacier and East Glacier Montana

WARNING it is a good route IF you take it all the way to Browning. When we went last year 13 miles before Browning was a sign to turn left for St Mary on Highway 49. After about 2 miles up 49 a sign stated no vehicles longer than 21 feet but there was no place to turn around. Later we were told that 89 from Browning to St Mary was torn up for construction and were advised that the best route from Browning to St Mary was to take 464 from Browning to 89 North of St Mary and then take 89 south to St Mary

RE: Washing Machine Odor

Food grade citric acid in place of vinegar works much better. Once a month we run our dishwasher with any cloudy glasses or plates, washing machine and coffee maker with it in them. Has eliminated the odor from the dishwasher and washing machine.

RE: 13.5 AC Unit

Our biggest problem in high temps has not been keeping the RV cool but LOW VOLTAGE in the campground. Have had to run the generator more than once during the hottest part of the day because the voltage of the shore power in the park or campground was to low. I guess that campground with electric hookups must have, then, allowed the running of your generator? (Most hookup commercial campgrounds we have camped at say in their rules list that running of RV generators is prohibited.) . If it is hot enough that I need the AC and there is low voltage I will run the generator and then go tell the office or host why I am running the generator and that as soon as the voltage is back up I will turn off the generator and go back to shore power. I have yet been told no. I have even seen a sign posting that there was low voltage and generator rules have been lifted.

RE: Selling RV and flying home.... crazy?

Another option to throw out there. Don't rush to see as many sites as you have listed but do see some of those sites. Then, get to an end destination of that trip, winterize the RV and then store it at a RV storage location and fly home. The following summer, fly back out and continue on with your western trip and maybe have the time to possibly drive it home then sell it on your leisure. This is brilliant. So in North Carolina we have to get the RV inspected every year. How would you handle that? This way

RE: Selling RV and flying home.... crazy?

Look for a Non Profit agency in the area that you could donate it to and take the value off of your taxes as a charitable contribution.

RE: Powering a dash cam

Slightly off topic Do not mount the dash cam, or anything else, on the actual windshield. In many state it is illegal and in some states they can only be mounted in very specific areas of the windshield. The police can use this as a "justified reason" for a traffic stop. It happened to us. my dash cams are mounted at the top of the windshield, the only thing they can block would be an airplane. my GPS is much more intrusive than that, don't know where I could mount it where I could see it and it could get signals OK. bumpy My 4 inch screen GPS was mounted in the center of my windshield all the way to the bottom where it only blocked the view of the hood and I was stopped on I40 east of Holbrook by a DPS trooper and given a warning. IMHO and from feedback from friends it is something that police use as "just cause" to stop you and look for something else. In my case I was driving a car with Colorado plates and ever since Colorado legalized marijuana it has become common for any car with Colorado plates to get stopped in other states using something for "just cause" so the police can check the car for any signs and or smell of marijuana. My GPS is now back in the same place but on a dash mount not on the window and it is legal.

Have had to run the generator more than once during the hottest part of the day because the voltage of the shore power in the park or campground was to low. Have a 27 foot with a 13,500 and have stayed cool in temps as high as 115 Tips Run the generator and roof AC while driving so that the RV is not hot when you stop. Use a outside cab wrap to cover the cab windows and windshield Close off the cab area from the motorhome we use a blanket. Close off the overhead bunk. During the hottest part of the day close any areas not being used such as bedroom or bathroom. A warm bathroom for a few minutes will not kill anyone. Park with the passenger side to get the afternoon sun and then put the awning out Vent covers Window awning are great but since we do not have them we have a shade cloth cut just bigger than the dinette window and use six Velcro tabs to attach it pn the outside Do not use the oven or cooktop heat meals up in the microwave.

RE: When to replace old class C tires?

INMHO in most parts of the country I would replace at five years here in the Phoenix area replace at four. Be aware that someone will tell you that tires do not age out and that they have old tires that are perfect because they keep them covered and treat them with a magic elixir. And some people get 20 MPG in a 30 foot motorhome going 70 MPH uphill into a 50 MPH headwind

RE: Portland to Burns

I apologize for not being clear on my follow up question. Thank you Marine By Choice for your answer and I do understand your route. I understand taking highway 97 from Madras to Redmond and then taking 126 East to 5 miles west of Pineville and then going South on SW Millican Road. I also see just South of Madras on highway 97 highway 26 branches off of highway 97 and goes to Pineville. Now let me rephrase my question. What is better road and or route From that turn off is highway 97 to Redmond and from Redmond on highway 126 to SW Millican Road Or is highway 26 from that junction to Pineville and from Pineville on highway 126 to SW Millican Road the better road and or route?

RE: Portland to Burns

Portland over Mount Hood to Madras, Madras to Redmond, Redmond east to just before the Les Scwab warehouse about 5 miles west of Prineville, south on the road to the Bend-Burns highway (west of Millican), then east to Burns. The highway from 126 to 20 was constructed so the Les Schwab trucks did not have to go through Bend. Fastest and easiest road in my opinion. So 97 from South from Madras is a better road than 26 South of Madras?

Portland to Burns

Part of a future trip will have has going from Portland to Burns We will be pressed for time on this trip and want to make the best time we can. Will be driving a 27 Class C pulling a toad. I see three options. Option one is take 26 out of Portland to 20 Option two is take I5 out of Portland to 22 at Salem and 22 to 20 Option three is take I5 out of Portland to 20 at Albany and stay on 20 all the way to Burns Of these three which would you recommend and why? Or is there a even better route that I am missing? Thanks

RE: Rite of passage, first blow out

A tad off subject however INMHO for the area you live in if your tires are over years old they need to be replace in the Phoenix area again INMHO the should be changed at years. How MANY years ?? Not off the subject at all......but worthless without a number. :W The number I've seen thrown around the most is 5. OOPS has been edited.

I5 VS CA 99

Six miles difference between the two from Palm Spring to Sacramento. Is CA99 a limited access freeway? Which would you choose and why? Thanks

RE: Refrigerator

If you do not want to use the propane while driving or if the refrigerator is not cooling when on propane just run your generator while driving and leave the refrigerator on electric.
