RE: Parking Aids on Ford truck

My 09 350 has a button on the dash with an "R" and a "little horn" and OFF. I push it to OFF while hooking up

RE: Alaska earthquakes - July 2015

We were having dinner and the trailer did a little rock n roll I said I think were having a earthquake. DW said no that's just the washer. Now I know it was an earthquake. Cool, my first.

RE: No Generator

I recently purchased 2 2000 watt generators for our trip to Alaska which we are presently on. Up here if you want to camp other than a RV park you need the gen's. We do have a normal propane/electric fridge and have had no problems. We have run the gen's when necessary to maintain the batteries and use the microwave and DW's hair stuff and other 120 appliances. One 2000 watt would take care of your needs with a residential refrigerator and maintain your batteries under most conditions. I purchased two because they are a off brand and wanted to insure if I wanted to connect them they would be compatible, we have spent time in RV parks where storms or other problems have cut the power and having the ability to fully power our rig would be important.

RE: 8 foot bed?

I think it is an east coast thing, even out west a CC long bed is a pain to park. People complain about DRW but that doesn't bother me as much as the length of my CC long bed.

RE: Electric only sites

I usually fill my fresh water tank when pulling in, most public cg's have fresh potable water tap near the dump station. We seldom stay more than three nights at electric only campgrounds but again many but not all have showers, if they do I use those DW refuses to public facilities. We were forced to stay a week last winter at an electric only site I purchases a 6 gal fresh water container to replenish our fresh water. No need to carry 100 ft of hose.

RE: pets anyone ?

We left "Butch" in WV two years ago, he was 14 and in poor health and pain he had traveled fulltime with us for four years. I told DW we would not get another pup till after we went to Alaska. We are there now and talking about breeds and size, not big and not small. May turn out to be a rescue if we find one we like though I prefer a pup to train with no habits to break.

They are very helpful and with your, year, model number, vin they could tell you what axle was on your trailer. NuWa Industries, Inc. 3701 Johnson Rd. Chanute, KS. 66720 800-835-0676 620-431-2088 http://www.nuwa.com/owners/service/

RE: Which generator?

I have two Smarter Tools 2000 from Costco they were under $1400 with the connection cable. I like them because carrying one in each hand balances me out. No longer see them on their website but they do have this Champion 2,800W Running / 3,100W Peak Digital Inverter Gas Generator

RE: New hitch installed

I've had my Companion for 5+ years 35,000 miles towing never a problem just lube as required.

RE: When will gas stations start truly accommodating trailers?

What a non-issue I'm 53' with my fifthwheel and only had trouble once with a fuel station and we have been on the road 5+ years coast to coast and border to border and beyond. Don't wait till your running on fumes or looking only for lowest prices and you won't have problems. I avoid truck stops and prefer local stations.

RE: Draining Freshwater tank

If your gray tank is empty just turn on your pump and all the faucets that should empty it in short order.

RE: Roll Call Alaska 2015

We drove up from Tok to Chicken thought we would get away from the Long Lake and Chrisana II fire but the smoke is as bad or worse up here. A fellow said there was a fire up by Eagle? may just be smoke from the Dot Lake fire, haven't heard of one near Eagle.

RE: Leveling A Fifth Wheel

A properly installed fifthwheel hitch should be 2" in front of the axle. Yes the weight is on the rear axle and should not unload the front axle at all.

RE: Shorter luxury fifth wheel

I would look at Arctic Fox not the most luxurious but a good fiver and good four season.

RE: Counting down and domicile questions

The only reason we left Illinois and relocated to SD was that we were in the Chicago Metro area and did not want to return for Air Quality vehicle testing. If you are not on Medicare or have nationwide health coverage, SD the last I read did not offer any nationwide health care plans. We have BCBS from retirement plan so that does not bother us. If I were you I'd stay in Illinois. We did save a little on vehicle insurance it covers the cost of the mail service.

RE: Just Wondering

Because of the lack of standard RV utilities (water, 50 amp electric, sewer) this volunteer assignment would not very attractive to most. It certainly wouldn't work for us but there are many who would enjoy the isolation.

RE: tire question... HELP!!

We drove 4000 miles before replacing tires with a gouge out of one. We replaced because of age not tread wear.

RE: Roll Call Alaska 2015

We have taken a break from our duties at Tetlin VC took a road trip down to Valdez. We had had reports of beautiful weather here but as expected it has turned to the worse, rain for the next three days. I feel like the 2 years we spent on the Oregon coast, we'll make the best of it.
