RE: Alaska trip

Most important...take enough time. We did it from south texas this summer and used 110 days. Could have spent another 20 days. Should not have made the turn south from Tok till first week of september

RE: Fulltiming with a CPAP

I have only found one drawback to using my cpap. Its hard to get close to the DW if you know what I mean. The exhaust from the mask blows out and disturbs the sleep of adjacent folks. Stacking pillows can deflect, facing the opposite direction can happen. If they made a mask that exhausted back upstream on the supply hose I would be all over it. pops

RE: Fulltiming with a CPAP

Be carful with the double ended lighter cord. When plugged in on one end the other will have close exposed 12 volt contacts energized. Electrical burns can happen. The male female plug approach on power cords address the issue safely. There are situations where you will want to do this, and can feel you can do it safely. But if wife or grandkids use it they will not have the knowledge to use it safely.. Engineer a safer solution. Pops

RE: What's the strongest single deep cell12 volt battery?

led replacement for all of your incandescent 12 volt bulbs will create as much capacity as adding a battery

RE: Fulltiming with a CPAP

Consider also adding a couple of 12 volt batteries for those nights you will not be tied to commercial power. CPAP uses quit a bit of battery and if you add it to your existing supply/load you will likely be woken up by the gas alarm low voltage at the end of your first night,,,for sure during your second night. I had room under the bed to install mine which made a short 12 volt cable which is good. Love my CPAP, won't leave home without it pops

RE: Brake Controller for Toad questions

factoring in the probability of getting a ticket, paying the ticket is likely cheaper than tearing up a set of tires pops

RE: Brake Controller for Toad questions

If your toad is small consider going nekked on auxiliary brakes and you will avoid unnecessarily tearing up tires do to maloperation of complex aux braking systems pops

RE: I'm confused about propane.

Ya know, in the grand scheme of things, it more important to fill the tank before it runs out, to fill the tank at a spot that is easily accessed, to fill the tank without requiring that the disabled wife get out of the motor home, to fill the tank without stripping the brass connections, to fill the tank without waiting for Mutt to come in from his cabin, to fill the tank without blowing down enough propane to lie up the northwest. I have never shopped for propane on the basis of price and will certainly never shop based on the unit of measurement. A full tank, cash transaction and I am off. pops

RE: How much are you driving your Toad?

2012 GMC Canyon 4 x4 towed to Alaska and back this summer. The pickup helps a bunch when having to haul stuff around the house when not rving. The doors are large enough to provide easy access. Low weight makes for an easy tow. 4 wheel drive worked very well off-roading around Moab ut. Pity they quit making them. Pops

RE: old school observation.... tire whacker

While getting ready to leave the driveway this week,my walk around indicated visually that the right rear dally might be a tad low. Bouncing a hammer on the tires indicated that the right rear inner tires was very low. Good tires go tink, bad tire went thunk. Bad tire was 10 psi and was aired up to take to tire shop four miles away on a Saturday. Rv was checked during an oil change the week before and nail puncture occurred on way home. This summer we made the 11000 mile trip to Alaska and back with no tire trouble. A walk around every morning is a task I find value in. Pops

RE: RV parks NO motorhomes over 10 years?

Been rving half time for the five years and have not had the question of how old brought up. I do tend to stay away from anything that claims to be a resort as the price is usually 30 buck a night more

RE: Don't idle your loud diesel at 5am for so long!!

At the golden nugget cg in anchorage whil walking the dogs early, there were several diesals happily making noise and fumes for about fourty minutes. I asked an owner why and the reply was it took that much time to charge the air tank. Now if the high dollar mh mfg wanted to support the green agenda, you think they would simply put in a larger air comp or run it off the engin battery

RE: Saftey Chains on Tow Dolly

Do tow dollies have brakes actuated when the car comes off the dolly
traveylin 10/27/14 11:30am Class A Motorhomes

Definition of a good tow vehicle depends on two questions. 1 only you can spec out your personal requirements. ie two seat/4 seat, 2 wheel/4 wheel dr, auto/std, off road/hwy, crv/pickup/sedan, etc. Next 2 identify how complex a toad hookup is desired. It can be done in 3 minutes or 30 minutes. Simplest described by a light weight 4 wheel drive that shifts simplely to neutral transfer case, steering wheel that does not lock, std tow bar with no aux brakes. Complex would be a dolly/trailer step up heavy enough for aux brakes and all the tiedown requirement. I would prefer to buy an almost new used to have a wider selection

RE: Rest Stop vs. The Hills Have Eyes

If there is any size to your rig, turning around can be a real issue. Would not do it at night or without an assured turnaround. pops

RE: Windshield

the big windshield is a magnet for rocks. I average a chip every 4 thousand miles. I keep a repair kit on board to repair very quickly. I like the kit sold by Walmart in the windshield wiper area. Replaced one time, my deductible was 500$. pops

RE: 2011 ford v10 air filter

the air filter is a specialty configured for the motor home chassis and is not clearly identified. I had to physically measure and compare to the two/three different described for the v=10 use. When you id the right one make sure you buy two. pops

RE: Gaudy colored and striped RV's

A couple years ago, I pulled into a 59 south gas station when I came out with the requisite fried chicken I saw the most over the top decorated Class A rv with a crowd of folks standing around it taking pictures. It was the Girls Gone Wild RV, well decorated with their art. Every other decoration scheme could be considered tepid. pops

RE: A toyota sienna toad

I have a 2011 seinna and would not consider towing 4 down. I tried to put it on a dolly but the wide track wheel placement would not fit a std dolly either. Any thing can be done...some things are done better. Need to get a recognized toad with mfg endorsement. pops
