RE: New Silverado 1500

I think your mileage will improve a little, seems to on the new vehicles I have had. I also think that it's very important to go easy on a new engine for the first 1000 miles or so. I think GM recommends 500 with no towing now but I always do a little more and I change the oil at 1000. This may be over kill but I was a career A/C maintainer and as an old guy have had a lot of new engines and never had to open one up. It's not as important as it used to be but if you are planning to keep the vehicle, a long time, especially one for towing it will pay off in the long run.

RE: Beer!

To get the best beer you have to go to a small Irish Pub and get a slow poured Guinness, but you have to remember to order the next one when they serve the first one or you will wait a long time between beers.

RE: Rushmore to West Yellowstone

Have done both routes several times with a MH and a TT when we lived in Rapid City and in my mind it's kind of a toss up. Not an easy way but if your rig is in good condition you should have a good scenic trip either way.

RE: Crater Lake Orego

Collier Memorial State Park has some sights that would fit your needs but it's well over an hour to Crater Lake. Also good trout fishing.

RE: Pacific NorthWest July/august

Both DW and I are from Portland area. I grew up in the Columbia river Gorge and we have lived near Dayton for 30 years. Have made the trip back many times. Coeur d'Alene is a nice stop. We have stayed at Blackwell Island a private campground close to town and very nice. The Oregon State Park campgrounds we like in the Gorge are Memaloose close to the Dalles and Ainsworth near Troutdale near Portland. Some great hiking in the Gorge, plenty of waterfalls. Hood river has a lot of wind surfers and it's less than an hour drive to Mt Hood. We like Fort Stevens State Park and it is close to the Lewis and Clark exhibits. Plenty of good State Parks on the coast but they are pretty full on week ends so need reservations. You won't have any problem finding things to do. mount St Hellens is interesting on the way to Seattle and so much more like the Rain Forest.

RE: Looking for parks and things to do in New Mexico in October

White Sands is a must see, nothing like it any place else (you could also jump the fence and look for the gold at Victoria peak but don't get caught). The space new museum in Alamogordo also worth seeing. There may still be a monthly tour to the Trinity site that is also a great experience.

RE: Moles in the lawn!

Moles mainly eat angle worms. And they don't even like there own kin, live in their burrows by themselves. If one dies another probably will move in. A good Cat works best but the mole pellets do work but as pointed out can be harmful to other animals. I have a fancy trap (expensive one) but have only ever had one spring the thing.

RE: Warranty work after moving????

I would recommend RVW if they handle the brand you want. Have had MHs and TTs and rarely could take them back to the dealer we got them from. Bought twice from them without issues and found they had beat price. I am retired and now live in OH close to RVW, did get work done by them once and then they for me to get arranged to get A/C work done. they also went to bat for me when the shop they recommended didn't fix it right the first time.

RE: RV Wholesalers....Thoughts opinions?

We bought from them twice but then we live in OH only an hours drive away. No one would match their price and they did exactly as they said both times. Most RV issues are the responsibility of the manufacturer, I generally try to fix things myself but I did have an issue with an AC that they located a repair shop that did a lousy job on it but RVW did helped me get the shop to correct the problem. I was also career mil and had several RVs and other vehicles over the years and rarely could go back to the original dealer. There is a nice state park (Indian Lake)very close to RVW. You might want to spend a few days to check out the new RV. Also WPAFB is only an hours drive and has a decent Fam Camp and all the other military services. I would buy from them again and I think they have the best price.

RE: I-75 Northbound Through Cincinnati

Go through Cincy often. We almost always use I-75 going north or south unless we it's Friday rush hour going south or the radio says there's a problem. Other routes add considerable time and sometimes traffic is just as bad.

RE: Help ordering first new RV

Bought our first and second TTs from RVW and was very satisfied with both. Couldn't beat their price. We are only and hour away. We did get the starter kit (good price but this was years ago)for the first one, cheaper than buying each item. If you are experienced you may want to buy better quality items. If you are picking the RV in Ohio you may want to stay over a day or two at Indian Lake State Park near RVW just to make sure everything is working.

RE: Gettysburg, Pa

We used the auto audio tour. Cheaper than the bus tour.

RE: Chipmunk damage to Chevy Truck

They must like Chevy trucks, they did over a $1000 damage to mine last year. Comprehensive paid all but $50.

RE: How do you keep plastic leveling blocks from slipping?

I use rubber horse mat sheets I get at Tractor supply in 3/4 thick and cut them with a box cutter tire wide in strips. You can put the blocks on them and that will stop the slippage or you can stack them and use as to level without the blocks. Only downside is they are heavy but so easy to use.

RE: Colorado Rockies

Timber Creek is right inside the Park entrance and visitor center, no hookups,good location. Close tothe old historic dude ranch. If you need hook ups there is a campground across from the visitor center on county rd 491 that looked good and has Horse rentals and stuff kids would like. Don't remember the name of it.

RE: Colorado Rockies

Just got back from Grand Lake/Granby area. Caught some nice trout, hiked up over 12K feet. Several decent campgounds in that area, close to RMNP, and lots of things to see and do.

RE: is it risky buying a travel trailer that is 8 years old

Just sold a 2008 TT to the first looker who never had an RV before. He brought two friends who had TTs and they went over everything very carefully - He paid what I was asking without even trying to get a better price. Condition not age, is everything in buying a used RV. I bought several and never regreted any of the deals.
