RE: going out to eat

Uber could be a solution but may not be available everywhere you camp.

RE: 5th wheel access on Icefields Parkway

We traveled about 4 years ago in our 45' Newell pulling an extended cab Z71 Silverado, about 72' long and had no problems. IIRC there was 1 steep section but was no worse than any place else in the Rockies. One of the prettiest places we've seen. The Columbia Icefields visitor center has overnight parking for $15/night (4 years ago price) and is a large asphalt parking lot with no hookups. Well worth a night or 2 to see the glacier across the road. We stayed 2 nights to see the glacier then drive to Jasper in the truck for a day trip. Lots of nice spots along the way.

RE: Burglar Alarm Suggestions

Look at Fortress security systems. Their Total Security system uses a cell SIM card and has a phone app. Might be just what you're looking for. I have one in the S&B and it works well. https://www.fortresssecuritystore.com

RE: Advice on Baton Rouge parking, sights & stays around NOLA

Lamar Dixon Expo Center just off Hwy. 30 and about a mile from I-10. This is just east of Baton Rouge. Large sites, full hookups, pull throughs. The campground is behind the large buildings. There is a campground on the side but those are long termers. http://www.lamardixonexpocenter.com/facilities/rv-park/

RE: trading in TOAD

Sheesh! I've used the same Demco towbar and Ready Brake system on a Mazda Miata, Jeep Liberty, Chevy Z71, and another Jeep Liberty. Don't listen to everything a sales liar tells you!

RE: Live out my life

Rather than a shed consider buying an enclosed trailer of whatever size you need. Being a moveable it shouldn't be a problem parking it in your site.

RE: Top RV manufacturers?

Really don't need a rear camera with the large rear window in my 26' Mid Bath Lazy Daze.

RE: Phoenix Cruiser 4x4

Having 4x4 would be nice but I would think the real problem will be the shaking and twisting the motorhome part goes through as you travel down a rough and rutted road. I'm hesitant to take my not 4x4 LD on any rough and rutted roads that could shake it apart. Heck we hit a road construction area north of Tatum, NM that we had to slow down to 30mph because it was so rough!

RE: Washing your hands

Dawn foam does work great but will pull all the natural oils out of your skin. So after using it I have to use skin lotion. FYI my wife makes foaming soap by reusing the foam pump bottles with water and a little bit of liquid soap of any kind. Try it and you'll realize how little soap there is in those ready made bottles. Add a drop of food color and a drop of whatever scent you like if you prefer.

RE: Wow...look out for the tree...

Not my RV but did have a tree fall on my Suburban a few years ago. Driving down a 2 lane road after one of our week long rains this willow tree decides to commit suicide just as I got to it. Luckily I didn't hit my brakes and just the smallest branches and leaves surrounded us as I passed under it as it was falling. The guy behind me wasn't so lucky as he hit the tree trunk.

RE: Success with AC coil cleaning

Just did the same but just laid a towel on the floor in case. I used a 1 gallon pressure sprayer with water to rinse and sucked up the water with the shop vac. No water got inside.

RE: Hooking up to house sepitc

Just as a point of reference we full timed for a couple years at a tractor shed that had 1 toilet + sink and an unknown size of septic tank. Couldn't be too large since it was just a workshop with the 1 toilet. Our Newell had a combined black+gray tank of 150 gallons. We would dump once or twice a week when it got almost full. Never had a problem with overflows. But there was no chance of it back flooding anything.

RE: Brake Buddies, BrakePro, raodmaster, evenbrake ???

I've used Readybrake also but on a Demco towbar. For about $70 you can buy another cable to install in another vehicle if needed, or if you change toads.

RE: Can I double up on wire?

And if the extra wires won't fit on the battery lug then something like this works well: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00HZU42Z2/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o06_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

RE: Best "shut em down" moment?

A friend just looks at them and says in a firm voice "standby" and proceeds to finish what he's doing.

RE: How Do You Follow Weather Reports As You Travel?

Wunderground used to have a webpage called roadtrip which showed the forecast weather along a route you could set. Worked great while it was available. I used it frequently when planning a trip, sometimes taking a different route would avoid rain, etc. Or just changing the day you leave could avoid driving through bad weather. PLEASE bring it back Wunderground!!!!

RE: Lithium system for larger RV, maybe?

Just be aware these are not LiFePO4 cells but are Lithium Nickel Cobalt Manganese. A very different type of Lithium cell.

RE: Converting 30 Amp Ext. Cord To Hook To 50 Amp TT

Perhaps this is what the OP is looking for: https://www.amazon.com/Progressive-Industries-ADT-230-Cheater-Box/dp/B00C595QW6/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1498314993&sr=8-1&keywords=progressive+industries+30+to+50+amp+rv+adapter I've used this successfully when I had my 50 amp coach to plug into a 30 + 15 amp receptacle to power both legs but at a much reduced current than 50 amps which as we all know is actually 100 amps total.

RE: Zion National Park

A couple months ago took 89 up from Phoenix to 389 then 59 into Hurricane. Nice road. 89A is also a good road.
