RE: Columbus, Ohio ?

We don't go around, adds about 20 minutes and the only real heavy traffic is Friday afternoon. Went through yesterday north bound about 4 PM with no problem. Went south on Monday. Do this both ways at least once a moth. There is some construction and 45 speed but not long. The big delay is north bound on 75 they are paving and down to one lane around mile marker 60, between Mt vernon and Berea I think. Huge delay, backed up for miles.

RE: dc power

I just had the same problem, and thanks to info I got from this forum I was able to fix it. If your battery checks out as mine did you might look for a breaker box that on the main feed. Its only bout an inch x 3/4inch rectangle and the primaries from the battery hook up to it. Apparently the newer ones are designed to automically reset but the older ones have a manual reset. Can check it with a meter to see if it is the the problem. Only costs a few bucks to replace and easy job. Had 4 other RVs and never even knew about this thing that apparently is on most RVs. If its tripped you will only have 12v when you have shore power connected.

RE: Tailgater and Trees / Camping at Degray SP in Ark

Have had a Tailgater for going on 5 years and only a couple of times the trees were so thick we could not get a signal, just takes a long cable and some persistence.

RE: No 12v powerneed help soon

Thanks - There is a box near the tongue but nothing that looks like a circuit breaker or fuse to me. Don't even see anything like a fusible link. We will have power where we are going so will be not have anyhing we can't get along without? Everything seems to work when we are plugged in even the tongue jack.

Valley Forge to Gettysburg

Is there anything between these two historic sites that we should stop and explore next week? We like historic things.

RE: Sturgeon fishing

When I was a kid there were some huge sturgeon (hundres of pounds) killed by blasting at the construction site of the Dalles dam. We fished between Stevenson and Dallesport and almost always caught keepers. Couldn't keep anything over 6 feet though and sometimes we had to release the big ones. The rules have changed and apparently more closely enforced these days.

RE: Long weekend 4-5 hours Dayton Ohio

Hocking Hills State Park is great and there is plenty to do in the area. Only a couple hours drive from Dayton.

RE: How many of you do this?

Generally turn the frig of when refueling, but have to admit ocassionally, if we are on the end row of pumps and at the first pump I have left it on. The refrig is close to 30' safety distance.

RE: Chaco Canyon

We were there 3 yrs ago and the road in from the north was the worst wash board I ever drove on and I used to work for the Forest Service. They said the southern route in was even worse. Aparently the park doesn't do the road maintenance. Just have to go slow and make sure everything is secure inside your RV. Worth the trip and IMHO better thean Mesa Verde , Canyon DeChelley and the others we have visited since it is more pristine, has not been restored and fewer people. When the sun goes down in the Canyon and you are so close to the ruins it is just awesome.

RE: Finally! Some long term reliability data!

Interesting info but could not find out where and from whom they got their data. From years working A/C defieciency reporting I know not all defects are the same. Some vehicles are just more complex, especially now with all the sophisticated electronics, especially new models just introduced.

RE: New to RV'ing

Good thing your willing to do some of your own fixing it's something that comes in handy. There is an R-Vision camping forum where you may find some good information about Trail Lites -http://www.r-visioncamping.org/modules.php?name=Forums.

RE: Mice/rodent proofing a camper

There are a lot of options for mice as mentioned but you also said "other rodents". If this includes squirrels, especially red ones, it becomes a real challenge. I have tried about everything and some like fresh cab seem to work for a short time but the only one I have had any real luck with is Critter Ridder. I get at Tractor supply. I spray it around the under side of the TT and around the wheel wells, my shed and my truck. Can't spray directly on glossy paint. Has to be reapplied every couple weeks and not real cheap but better than the damage they can cause.

RE: Equal-i-zer or Andersen?

I think you will be fine with your current hitch but why not talk to the Equal-i-Zer people and get their opinion. They have been very helpful for me.

RE: Do you use other RV forum sites?

Use IRV2 also but it seems more oriented to full timers and big rigs. We downsized to a small TT and only a few trips a year.

RE: Smokey Mountains & Blue Ridge Parkway

Twin Creeks is a good choice it's where we stay. Very convenient to almost everything, and the trolley to town and the cdraft loop not cheap but worth the price. You might want to get a reservation for the main tour at Biltmore especially if you go on a weekend.
