Hoosier National Forest

We will be traveling through the Hoosier National Forest on I-64 and would like to know if it is worth visiting or at least camping there for a night.

Kansas City to Louisville, Ky

I am looking for sites to see and good campgrounds along I-70 and I-64. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Are there any Corp of Engineer campgrounds along the way?

RE: Battery Disconnect Solenoid

Will get my replacement latching relay monday. Can I do an off-the-coach check?

Yellowstone Late May to Mid June

I have a friend arriving from Europe around the 22 of May and would like to visit Yellowstone. Is that too early?

RE: Battery Disconnect Solenoid

I took out the solenoid which appears to be a latching relay, KIB LR9806. Both fuses were blown. The main terminals had a dead short so there was power to the coach, but no way to turn it off with disconnecting the batteries. My guess is the old stuck switch was a momentary switch and the parts guy provided an on/off switch which when left on overloaded the fuses. The switch was a Sigma LR20985 which appears to be available in several configurations. I am not sure how to test the latching relay. Would it fail in the closed position? Most solenoids I am familiar with fail in the open position.

Battery Disconnect Solenoid

I am helping a friend with a 2008 Jayco Melbourne 29D. He said his battery disconnect switch was stuck and he replaced it. The battery is not disconnected in either the off or on position. I don't know if the prior switch was a momentary switch or and on/off switch. Before I remove the solenoid can anyone provide more information on the circuitry?

RE: Great Montana Park

Nice spacious park. A bit of drive to the entrance of Glacier NP, but lots to see on the way.

RE: 2017 View/Navion 24G

We have had our 2016 View 24G for about 8 months now and are fairly pleased with it. The 2/3-1/3 split bed works best it the 1/3 is at the foot. You can hold the whole thing together with a mattress pad and fitted sheet. When you are ready to pull in the slide you just flip up the 1/3 on top. As someone said the heat pump is noisy and so is the furnace. The 2017's may have the Truma Combi system which gives tankless hot water and is much quieter. I know they were putting them in the ERA's. We haven't used the outside speakers or the booster seats yet. One thing the 24G gives you is more counter space and a nice, but small pantry. The grey water tank has to be pumped out, consequently when winterizing, it takes a couple of extra gallons of antifreeze to winterize the pump. The hot water heater by-pass which won't be a problem if there is a Truma Combi is behind the wardrobe drawer which is a pita to remove. Also be aware if you are carrying anything on a luggage rack hitch, it must be low enough for the rear slide to go over it. I would order one again. We would get the aluminum rims, an upgrade fantastic fan with a rain cover, the Truma Combi furnace hot water heater and I would get rid of the overhead large vent, if that is possible. Also, if it is possible I would have the rear bed platform hinged so you wouldn't have to be Houdini to access items stored under the bed.

Omaha, NE to Bar Harbor, ME

Some friends of mine were asking about our trip 10 years ago. Besides a bad memory, I am sure there are better recommendations which are more current. Please give us your recommendations for good campgrounds, free campgrounds, low tolls and great things to see on the way and once in the Bar Harbor area.

Interstate 80/Chicago by-pass

Going east, what is the best way to by-pass the Chicago area from I-80 back to I-80.

RE: Lube Pump Pros and Cons

Just wondering, without starting a major debate, why do you keep buying vehicles that need modification in order to be towed when, you can buy several makes and models that are authorized by many manufacturers to be FLAT towed? Yeah, Toyotas for quite some time, have had a pretty good rep for dependability. But, again, there's other Manufacturers with reputable-dependable flat towable cars. Honda CRV comes to mind. That is unless it's a '15 and newer. Jeep wrangler, anything primarily around '90 and later that's the 4WD models. Anyway, just wondering why you'd do that when it makes it harder to set up and, there's more to go wrong while you're towing. Scott I can't speak for anyone else of course, but when we were ready to start towing, we already had our very reliable 2002 RAV4 and really liked it as a daily driver. Given that, it was cheaper to just add the Remco pump than it was to trade it in on something else. When we wanted to update to a newer car, we found that our existing pump and tow setup could be swapped right over to a new 2011 RAV4 Sport that we liked except for the base plate. So that's what we did. Since I did all the labor, our only direct towing expense for the swap was the new base plate and probably a dozen or so wire ties. I should also mention that our 2002 RAV4 has had less than $300 in actual repairs since new, and we still use it as a second car when we're at our Adirondack vacation cottage. Our daughters also borrow it at times when their vehicles need to go in for service. I like the Rav4, but would guess that it close to the CR-V in weight. It is interesting to note that Remco does not recommend a Lube pump for the newer Rav4s.

Scott I like the reliability of Toyotas and I am looking at the Yaris which saves me a lot of weight over the ones you mentioned.

RE: Is Having GPS In The Radio Worth The Time and Money?

Bought a new RV with Rand McNally GPS in the radio. I usually use my iPhone because it is easier and always up-to-date.

Lube Pump Pros and Cons

I am looking at towing a small Toyota with an automatic transmission. The website I was looking at recommends using a Lube Pump kit. The Toyota dealer is dead set against it and insists I use a manual transmission. It was the same situation when I bought my Tacoma and they were against using a drive-shaft disconnect. I have had good success with that for over 10 years. I would like to hear your experience with a Lube Pump, good or bad.
