RE: Los Algadones

Absolutely. If you're going for dental and concerned there are many dentists that will have someone meet you at the crossing to escort you. Just ask.

RE: New Orleans RV Resorts

If you have a Class A that qualifies the French Quarter RV resort is very nice and expensive. But what you get for that is walking distance to the Quarter.

RE: I-10 W from NOLA to Houston

Construction has started on widening I-10 from LA 73 exit to Highland Rd exit just east of Baton Rouge. Both lanes are open from about 6am to 9pm then only 1 land open at night. http://wwwapps.dotd.la.gov/administration/announcements/announcement.aspx?key=16212

RE: Questions for snowbirds and campers?

I also like the idea of all or some of the waterfront sites, especially the higher priced premium ones, having duplicate hookups so an RV can either back in or pull in. Having the view out of your front or rear living area is a definite plus. Also consider an adults/55+ area only in addition to a family area. While we love our own grandkids we may not enjoy being around yours....

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.
