RE: Tire chains questions

Or you could run with winter rated tires. I would say no to chains...it's October, right? Not January. I haver made countless trips to Az and Nevada from BC in October and in November and not once had an issue. Watch the weather and if you need to stop for a bit? Better than chaining. Not so much you chaining...but if the roads are that bad, it's the other drivers that will get ya. But..if you insist? Les Schwab so you can take them back in spring. Gary Haupt

New plan for New York...

We were going to go to Boston for a couple 3 days but our style of travel is more just stumbling aroud looking at places. Fish boats and old houses. So, we are looking at renting a car in New York and just going for a drive up along what I shall refer to as the coast. Maybe as far as Dennis Beach? My question then is....renting a car right in NYC seems kinda like trouble looking to happen. If we trundle on out to saaayy...New Rochelle? Or Greenwich? I am asking your thoughts on that...and how would we best accomplish this? Also if you have any ideas about cool stuff to see? Gary Haupt

RE: New Roof - Story and Pictures as Promised

Gary, I was asked just this morning, not to give the price as, they've offered different prices and an occasional promotional at different times of the year. They don't want "any" misunderstandings. They charge by linear foot of replaced rubber roof. Any Roof sheathing, solar panel, or satellite system (removal/ installation) is an added expense.The best I can offer, is to measure your existing roof, then call for estimate. Give them your roof details ( a photo would probably help). Example: number of solar panels, satellite dish, skylight, etc. They can then give you a written estimate. If you are correct with your work to be done, and "no" roof damage is found, then you will have an accurate estimate. They will also provide photos as the work is done to keep you apprised of the job scope! I had them replace all plastic covers on roof, my skylight, and replace my old "crank-up tv antenna, and installed much better roof vent covers. I thought that their prices for these items were very reasonable! Okay..thanks for the insight. Gary Haupt

RE: Intermittently Dies

Just a thought seeing's you are at a centre? Maybe change out the fuel filter. The older the tank? The more rust floating around. Gary Haupt

RE: Hurricane Irma

An actual hurricane? The only protection is under the hood...drive far far away ASAP. Even the windstorms down in Nevada, Arizona, eastern Oregon too I imagine..that will and do, topple semi's? Would make short work of an RV. If ever you are driving on the wide open spaces and it's really windy? and you see people pulling in and stopping under traffic over-passes? They aren't writing on the walls under there. Gary Haupt

RE: Intermittently Dies

I'm with the fuel pump crowd. Any parts store will have the pump..or should have...the problem is going to be dropping that tank. If you are going to do it yoursef, you need to get the fuel out. Might as well just drive the bugger till it's dry. Make your last miles the one to the fixing location. If you are having a shop do it? Same thought applies...drive it ill you are dry. They'll charge you to drain and so on. I see you were or are still, in Wa. See if a local Les Shwab can do it. That way you have service everywhere in the west. Gary Haupt

RE: STEALTH OVERNIGHT IN SAN FRANCISCO???

garyhaupt, apparently you haven't seen what prowls around in some city parks at night. And I'm not referring to the animals with four legs. I am assuming you are not a fan of urban camping? Fair enough. It's not for everyone. There is a skill one has to develop in finding good places. As for whether or not I have seen? I have. I refuse to let fear prevent me from exploring the places I want to. Gary

RE: STEALTH OVERNIGHT IN SAN FRANCISCO???

A city park or a school or a church..all of these are in quiet neighborhoods. Go looking...scope out a nice quiet area..and if a city park is not 'signed'...you are home for the night. Wherever you park..don't try to stealth it out, unless it is already dark....open your door...say hi to people on the sidewalk...if you see a cop? Go say hello..tell them why you are there. Cops love to know who's who in the zoo...if they don't know, they get all police-like. If you are afraid of doing what I mentioned? You shouldn't be 'docking' in any city. Gary Haupt

RE: North shore of Lake Superior

We are leaving late Gary because we like travelling when it is getting cooler and the kids are back in school so campgrounds are easier to get into. Besides, we have been so busy with family weddings, company, other trips that we haven't had the 30 days we are taking now. We have been to the Maritimes a couple of times but not in the RV. We very much enjoyed all the Maritime provinces and their people as well as the Gaspe' portion of Quebec in rental cars but that is a LOOOOOOOOOONG way to tow. Thanks for the Minnesota advice,Mike. We will look at that possibility. Thanks P.P. Gary Haupt

RE: North shore of Lake Superior

I am curious about the rather late start. I see you are not going right across to the Maritimes? I am like, soooooo wanting to go, but the way I travel, it's a 4 month wander just to get there. Gary Haupt

RE: Quartzsite 2018

Those that live in desert in summer often get some of that camo type netting...stretch that out over the camping area and it will drop the temp by maybe 10 degrees. Gary Haupt

RE: 4 wheel drive class c

nice..... but one of these days you'll be going down the road and think, ...now whered i leave my favorite coffee mug? I have a story about that..only it wasn't a coffee mug. And 180k's later...when I stopped to dump, that two thousand dollar camera and lens was still there. Gary

RE: 4 wheel drive class c

Gary, Is that table steel, or can aluminum support a coffee cup? :B Ohhh ... and what is that black pole sticking up by the driver's side fender? It is from Aluminess in Ca. A fine piece of equipment with a locking cabinet for the 12,000lb Warn winch. That pole..is just a pole out in a field of stuff...it is Molson Wa. A living museum of mining and ranching equipment. Great spot. Gary

And for heavens sake...make sure you get a proper coffee table on it, too. http://i68.tinypic.com/15heq2c.jpg]http://i68.tinypic.com/15heq2c.jpg Gary Haupt
