RE: Route with the least mountains

I 40 is a piece of cake. Yes it is but the OP wanted to know the flattest route. As I posted geting to I-40 from LA is not flat. Bill Yes and when you get to Flagstaff the elevtion is close to 7,000' and as you continue East you are still in the high mountains. There is snow already in Flagstaff and the Arizona Snow Bowl ski area is open. OP if he wants to come South to go East should get down to I-10.

RE: power cords and options to carry

Our power chord manual reel works for us and doesn't take up much space. http://i195.photobucket.com/albums/z175/PChatters/2012%20Jayco%20Pinnacle/power%20chord%20reel_zpshxgc6owu.jpg http://i195.photobucket.com/albums/z175/PChatters/2012%20Jayco%20Pinnacle/power%20chord%20reel2_zpsiqpkjhke.jpg

RE: Morning Lows

30 the last 2 nights here in Eloy, AZ which is about half way between Tucson and Phoenix. Warmed up to the mid 60's during the day. Eloy is about 1,500' elevation. The low temp comes for about 2 hours between 4-6 am so no worry about freezing water hoses. If worried about that just carry an extra water hose. Forecast for this month is for low temps in the mid 30's to low 40's and day time temps in the 60's and 70's. Come down and enjoy the 'winter'.

RE: Winegard Travler and Dish network

You will need to stow and deploy. If the coach gets out of level you will lose signal for sure but there are other things that can cause loss of signal. Since you were asking how to know where the problem is stow and deploy is the first step. Exactly. Has the OP done this??

RE: Oregon coast camping

Here is our entry in our Trip Journal for our stay at Beverly Beach SP a couple of years ago. Make sure you click on View all Photos at the end of the entry. Stayed a week and everything was great. Had a site in the back which was a little tight getting in for us but it worked. When we went to the beach we drove the truck up to the parking lot right next to the entrance going under the 101. Will definitely stay there again next time passing through the area.

RE: Anyone using winegard x1?

Sorry but your original post was confusing....at least to me. So...do you want a portable antenna like the Pathway or a permanent roof mounted antenna?

RE: Looking to install inside handrail

You might have to install an exposed backer board. This involves making a nicely finished board that span the entire area where the hand rail will be mounted. I have done then in 3/4" Oak with nicely routered edges and a nice stain and urethane finish. This board is screwed to anything and everything that's structural in the wall. It then becomes the mounting surface for the hand rail brackets. You may have seen something similar in public bathrooms, as it's a common technique for securely mounting handicap grab rails to an existing wall, where studs do not end up in places that would be suitable for mounting the bar, and there is no blocking installed inside the wall, between studs. In another case, I built a custom handicap entrance rail for our motorhome. It is a complicated affair made of 1/2" black steel gas pipe, bent with a conduit bender. The railing is attached to the floor with pipe "floor flanges" and the upper end is welded to a piece of 1/8" thick steel flat stock that spans from a window flange to a door flange, where it is securely screwed tight. Makes sense...thanks.

RE: Looking to install inside handrail

Unless there was one built in, there is probably nothing in an outside wall to attach to. Mostly the walls are some type of laminated foam with a thin hardboard sheet on both sides. Very little or no framing at all. Suggest attaching a nice well-finished hardwood board to the wall with good adhesive and a few short mollies, then attaching handrail to that. Good info...thanks.

Looking to install inside handrail

Couldn't really find a thread on this so.... Want to install a wood decorative handrail on the outside wall going up to the bedroom. Anyone have experience or info on this like where to purchase etc...? Thanks in advance.

RE: Salesperson Switcharoo!

Can we get this thread closed? Geez!!!! Could you abbreviate your excessively long and detailed SIG, or at least hide it when it doesn't relate to the topic being discussed so it doesn't clutter up the screen with unnecessary information? Geez!!!! :R Done - just for you buddy.

RE: Florida bound end of December, furnace question

Newbie to posting. We are travelling to Florida from Kingston Canada at the end of December. My question is can I run my furnace in our 5th wheel while driving? We previously had a motorhome and ran the furnace while driving. Thanks in advance. Are you stopping along the way or driving straight thru to Florida? Not wanting to be smug but need more info. What are you worried about if you are winterized? If so when you get into warmer temps de-winterize. How far do you drive in one day? Hours? If you stop say after 4-5 hours for an overnight hookup if available the light your furnace. To your original question...no we don't run with the propane on so no furnace. I know some do but not us. Safe travels.

RE: Salesperson Switcharoo!

We are serious cash buyers for an TT. We have contacted 3 or 4 dealers, most are at least 2.5 hours away and all in different directions. We are trying to buy and get delivery the same day which seems impossible. We found a dealer 2.5 hours away and the salesman through conversations had said that if we get there early and make a choice, it can be ready that day. My husband last told him that we would arrive early and which unit we would purchase IF "fit and finish" was good. The next email says that will be fine BUT he won't be there on the day we are going and "the team" would take care of us. We have had this happen twice before when shopping. Everything said by the person not conveniently present is a "misstatement" or "misunderstanding" on the part of the shopper. I don't like or have time for "games", especially when we are talking about losing a whole day just to get to the dealership. So, I say this smells like a "rat" situation. I think once there if all terms remain the same that delivery will not be that day and/or "fit and finish" won't meet our expectations and they'll try to get us to buy something "better" although after my research, in the RV industry, "better" is a lost art. This will be RV #9, so we are not amateurs. It is also a major purchase for us. Thoughts? I am saying the "salesperson switcharoo" spells hassle. Goodness!!!! If this bothers you so much just pick a day the salesman will be there.

RE: California Highway 5 northbound surfacing conditions

1 week ago we used the 99 again to go from Sacramento to Bakersfield...no issues. This is our preferred route/road every year when heading to AZ for the Winter.

RE: What's Cooking for Thanksgiving

This year Thanksgiving Day Dinner is a treat with 6 of us going. For a change someone else is doing the prep, cooking and cleanup.

RE: black tank rinser

Our black tank flush says to leave the black tank valve OPEN and of course hooked up to your sewer. When the water runs clear it did it's job. You said you were at a full hook site so doing that should not be a problem.

RE: Buy a 50 Amp Sp for a 30 Amp rv?

Ask yourself what the #1 problem is in Campgrounds for electrical issues. It is better to fix the problem than protect yourself from it. I can't fix the problem if it belongs to the campground, but I can protect myself from it.. B.O. + a bunch. Could not guess what Don was saying.
