RE: 42" TV in 84 class C RV

Probably 42" is too big for a small rv. Measure the viewing distance from the TV and ask the sales person what the optimal viewing distance is for your measurement. You can probably find the optimal distance for the TV size on the internet too.

My 70 yr old husband hurt his back June 3 putting new windows in the house and could barely walk with similar symptoms you described. MRI indicated disk bulge at the L4-5 and Spondylolysis at L5-S1. Our doctor recommended physical therapy and said 80% of the time it will get better on it's own with therapy & rest and that surgery wasn't always the solution. Hubby thought this can't work, but went anyway. He was amazed at how much better he felt after a week and was able to get rid of the walker he was using after the month was up. He did the therapy for 1 month and decided he could do the rest of the exercises they gave him at home. After 4 months now, he is pretty good, except when he tries to lift things too heavy and strains his back, then it takes him 3/4 days to get back in shape.

RE: Cart before the Horse? Just got 1st 5er... Need truck wisdom

A 37' 5er is pretty long and pretty heavy. You might want to consider a 32' instead. The 37' will be harder to get rid of if you decide to sell. Will you be using your truck mostly for driving and just a little for towing? If so, you will want to look at that factor too before buying a single rear wheel or a dually--more tires to replace and maybe lower gas mileage. We have a Chevy Duramax single rear wheel 4x4 with an extended cab and pull our 32' Sunnybrook with 3 slides--11,000 lbs. We like the extended cab because the truck isn't so long (we have an 8' bed). Everyone has an opinion of what is best for them, but slow down and consider all the alternatives -- a 2 mile per gallon difference in a truck adds up to quite a lot of $$ over 100,000 miles of driving.

RE: Bed Sheets

I altered the bottom sheet by running it through my sewing machine to take out the excess. Sew first and then cut off excess. Put the seam so when it's on the mattress it will be either at the foot of the bed or under your pillow area so you don't feel it when laying down. Much cheaper than buying special sized sheets.

RE: First tow with 06 LBZ

11 mpg to 13.5 mpg (depending on wind direction and terrain), towing a 32' Sunnybrook with 3 slides, 12,500 lbs.

How is Tracfone and/or Virgin Mobile internet service

Planning my June, 2013 trip to Alaska and have some connectivity questions: I have a Tracfone that I use here in the States, and was wondering if it works in Canada and on the way up through Alaska? Also I have Virgin Mobile Broadband internet for my laptop. Does this work in Canada on the way to Alaska and through Alaska? Looking for input from travelers with similar technology.
