RE: campers for 10 people

My signature unit will sleep 10, with 6 being adults, but it's a big 5'er.... 2 in MBR, 2 or 3 in loft, 2 or 3 in bunk room, 2 on fold-out couch.

RE: Thousand islands and Finger Lakes

If it's scenery that you are looking for, in NYS, it's a little longer run for you from KY, but head for the Lake Placid/ Willmington area. We stayed at the North Pole Resorts CG last July 4, and years ago I had stayed at the local KOA. Both were nice, though my KOA stay was more than 10 years old. There are also some very nice State run CG's in the area, though most are "no hookups". The ski-lift ride up Little Wilmington is breathtaking all year long. And you are on the historic slopes from the 1980 Winter Olympics were held. The drive and elevator ride through the mountain rock the top of Wilmington Mt. are amazing and then you will be absolutely blown away by the views from the summit. The Village of Lake Placid is just that..., still a village! Shops, bakeries, some outlets, ice cream shops, taverns and brewpubs, and of course, the Olympic Arenas (1932 & 1980). Rent a pair of skates and take a couple of loops around the arena where the Miracle on Ice occurred, what the USA beat the USSR hockey, and then won the Gold Medal.... There are beautiful views all along both branches of the Ausable River (great fly-fishing for trout, as well). The ski-jump and the bob-sled both operate all summer long, on synthetic surfaces, and you can ride the bobsled! And if you are into hiking, I can't even begin to explain all of the options..... I work for NYS, and travel Statewide on a fairly regular basis. Believe me, you can't do better for scenery and views in NYS than the Lake Placid /High Peaks Region. Send me a PM if you have any specific questions... there are some times that you absolutely want to avoid. Black fly season (Memorial Day through most of June) and IronMan Week (unless you like huge crowds)....

RE: Thousand islands and Finger Lakes

Each has virtues..... if you like to visit wineries anc cheese houses, head towards the Finger Lakes, especially towards Seneca Lake. Touring, lighthouses, castles, crossing into Canada, then Thousand Islands. Both have beautiful scenery. What do you like to do?

RE: clip on mirrors?

The only add-on mirror that I ever found to be worthwhile was the set of McKeesh Mirrors that I used for 12+ years. Very solid, no vibration. There's a company that sells a copy-cat of the McKeesh, but they are of much lesser quality....

RE: Installing solar panels on roof of my Bounder

I used Eternabond tape under the bracket, then Dicor between the ape and the bracket, and over the screw heads. For some reason, I can't post a photo though.....

RE: Reciever size

I have yet to see a hitch-bar at the larger size.... just p/u a sleeve for less than $20, and go with it.

RE: Suggestions for Roof Rack to Haul 2 Kayaks on Quad Cab Truck

I use a pair of Thule cross-racks, each with three kayak cradles on them. The RAM doesn't have "gutters", but the racks clamp tightly on the upper inside lip of the door opening, and they don't interfere with the door or rain seal.

RE: backing on wrong side

Until you get your "markers" set, so that you know when to cut the wheel, put a small orange cone on the corners of the driveway, this should help some.

RE: backing on wrong side

If you cannot see it, I'd suggest that your right side mirror is likely too small, or improperly aligned.

RE: Crazy inverter question

I run my converter, with the fridge on propane and the inverter breaker off, exactly as described. I have a pair of 150w panels, and four 6v golf cart batteries for my battery bank.

Anyone using "Sniff and Stop" as a mouse preventative?

My wife was told that this is a great product for helping to keep mice out during the off-season. Anyone have any positive or negative comments/experiences? And please, no lectures on cleaning the RV before storing. It's thoroughly vacuumed and everything washed with Pinesol before storing....

RE: Maxxair vents covers-worth it?

I installed a MaxAir cover over my automatic FantasticFan, and had to take it off. The lid on the fantastic fan hit the underside of the MaxAir dome and wouldn't allow it to completely open. Since it wouldn't completely open, the limit switch on the fan wouldn't allow the fan to run. Removed the MaxAir dome and replaced it with a FantasticFan dome, and it works fine.

RE: Adirondack Rte 28

The route is good, some beautiful scenery along the way, but it's a climb! Lake Placid is in the middle of the Adirondack "High Peaks" region, so expect some long uphill pulls! That said, my work continually puts me all across NYS, and Lake Placid is BY FAR my favorite Village to get an assignment in. SO MUCH to do and see there!

RE: Stored groceries while traveling

Some stuff we plan on lasting an entire trip, some things, like fresh vegetables, we like to buy at local roadside stands. One of the places that we go on an annual basis is Dover , DE for the Fall NA$CAR race. We travel down with a nearly EMPTY freezer, because there is an Amish Market in Dover that we stock-up on specialty meats that lasts us through much of the next year. Otherwise, grocery store stops are a regular (every second or third day) occurrence for us....

RE: recommendations on tire pressure monitors

I bought the TST flow-through system at the beginning of the season for the new 5'er, and I'm very pleased with it. I've got a 10-sensor system.

RE: 2017 2500HD versus 3500HD SRW

How long is that combo in total? It's gotta be a handful once you pull off the highway. Just over 65', but since the tag axle wheels turn opposite the steer-wheels, it actually kicks the nose of the trailer OUT rather than hugging the turn direction. It has the effect of actually SHORTENING the trailer. I've pulled this trailer with both the ASH and a bed mounted Superglide hitch (which I will likely soon be selling), and it turns better with the ASH. I still need more practice backing, but I'll get out this Fall, and again in the Spring with some cones in an empty parking lot. Watch the videos on the ASH website,a nd you'll see how it maneuvers....
