RE: Traveling from SW Michigan to Gettysburg/Landcaster

Probably the best route through Pennsylvania is I-76, the Pennsylvania Turnpike. However, there are Tolls. Follow the Turnpike east to Exit 236, US 15/Gettysburg. Take US 15 south. You may look at the map and be tempted to get off at Exit 161, Breezewood, and take US 30 east to Gettysburg. Don't even think about it. It's two lane, mountains, turns and a couple runaway truck ramps. If you were driving it in your car or tow vehicle I would recommend that route. It's a nice drive. But, pulling a 5th wheel, it would not be fun or enjoyable. Another option would be take the Turnpike east to Exit 201. After leaving the toll booth turn right on PA 997. Follow PA 997 south until you come to US 30. Take 30 east to Gettysburg. Trucks use PA 997 going to the Letterkenny Army Depot. It's two lane but, good road. Between Chambersburg and Gettysburg there is one mountain but, it's mostly straight road and not too bad. Between Breezewood and Chambersburg is the area you definitely want to avoid. I've never stayed in the Gettysburg area so I can't recommend a CG. I did travel the area many, many times.

RE: Cleaning / waxing the Class B fiberglass top

The Zep/Red Max Pro Application Process will do a nice job cleaning your 20 year old fiberglass top. If you don't want to use Zep (floor wax) just apply the car wax of your choice. Cleaning and prep is the important part. The top will look great.

RE: stabil gas treatment vs seafoam for storage

My vote goes to Seafoam I had similar results a few years ago with my old Craftsman Snow Thrower. And, my neighbor who used Stabil, had trouble getting his Snow Thrower started after sitting all summer. When he did it ran rough. I drained his fuel tank and put in Seafoam treated gas from my can that had been sitting about 9 months. It started up after a few pulls, ran rough for a few seconds then smoothed out and ran great. Scientific proof? Nope. Did it convince me? Definitely. YMMV

RE: For you AZ residents, where is this?

Not sure if all browsers have it, but Chrome = right click, google search image.Now that's pretty cool. That's beyond cool....

RE: For you AZ residents, where is this?

I'm guessing it's somewhere along the AZ state line. :B

RE: CVT in your 1 ton?

Some engineer somewhere will get it figured out eventually, and it will make the conventional automatic transmission obsolete. Yep, no doubt that day is coming. I think it will be a good thing. Maybe we should hold onto our manual transmission cars/trucks. They will be the ultimate theft deterrent in a few years. :)

This is not good advice. Wasp spray (at least some brands) are not very effective at quickly stopping people, as they are not particularly irritating. They do contain toxic substances, often agents that affect the nervous system, so (unlike pepper sprays) can cause permanent harm. Using wasp spray (any brand) for purposes other than insect control is a violation of federal law. Yes, it's much better to be concerned about their rights and allow a criminal to attack you, or worse. They're only violating state laws, you would be violating Federal Laws by using wasp spray. That's a real concern to me. :R In an emergency situation you do what you need to do to protect yourself or others. :W

RE: Death by GPS

I think it's kind of sad and scary that many can't read a paper map and rely on a GPS. I consider the GPS a tool to go along with maps, not a total navigation system. JMO :)

I liked some of Bryan's simple ideas like putting out 2 chairs. There is a good suggestion in the link I posted above to put out a 2nd pair of footwear that's obviously a guy's at the bottom of your entry stairs. Go to Good Will or a thrift shop and find a pair of size 14 boots. :)

RE: GenSet

I agree, it's not necessary to unplug from shore power. The ATS will take care of it. BUT, I always unplug from shore power before I start the generator. I don't like to tempt Mr Murphy. That's just me and my idiosyncrasies. ;)

RE: RV Garage Design Help

You may want to consider building it high enough so you, or someone, can get on the roof of the motorhome to do any maintenance or inspections.

Welcome to the forum. I don't travel alone but, if you chose to not carry a shotgun or handgun, consider Bear Spray or Mace of some type. Be aware of your surroundings. If it doesn't look or feel right, move on.

RE: Favorite Eastern Seaboad and such destinations?

If you plan on crossing the border, the village of Alma, New Brunswick Canada is a nice place. Stay at the Fundy National Park Headquarters campground. It's an easy walk from the CG to Alma. Going back is all uphill. There's a nice view of Fundy Bay at the entrance to the CG. Enjoy your trip.

RE: Go cheap or not ???

At $135-$150 per night, that buys A LOT of a class A coach. So, let it depreciate, right? That's the correct attitude for RVing. It's about the fun, enjoyment and convenience. :) You'll find the right one. Keep asking questions and looking.

RE: Cooking potatoes in campfire

if you want them to cook faster and more evenly push a big NON GALVANIZED nail into them before you wrap them That's a neat tip. Thanks. :C

RE: Go cheap or not ???

Another thing to consider which you may remember from your previous experience. RV tires usually age out before they wear out. So getting something like a Prevost (which is now off the table) can get expensive. So check the tire age and figure replacement price into your negotiated purchase price.

RE: Dog lost in the Gulf of Mexico for 3 hours found alive!

That is the best advertisement for a pet life vest, because it really happened. If this doesn't convice boaters to get one for their pets, nothing will. Thanks for posting.

RE: Replacing my 2 House Batteries, Suggestions?

Have you ever read The 12 Volt Side of Life? It has a lot of good info on batteries. What is in your rig now? 12 volt or 6 volt. If you presently have 12 volt you would have to change the battery wiring to go to 6 volt. Trojan T-105 is a good brand. But many have had good results with Costco Deep Cycle batteries. You have to do some research, many Costco, Sams, etc. are built by the same manufacturer. I presently have two 6 volt interstate's in our Southwind. The have served me well. I'm not sure what I will use when I replace them, it will depend what is on sale. :) Hopefully someone will give you better information and ideas.
