RE: The China-Bomb debate Put to rest

If I had 16 inch rims (or room to change to 16 inch rims) I would use LT tires. We don't all have that option.

RE: Cross Country Road Trip

Bring 10 to 15 rolls of quarters for laundry. Most campgrounds use regular machines so don't bring the HE soap from home. Take a couple of laundry baskets. Bring a bar of Lava soap for grease cleanup. Scope out a Walmart here or there for bottled water, shampoo, etc. Buying everything in small towns can get expensive. There are Ford dealers all over the west when it is time for an oil change. Call at least a few days in advance when you figure out when are where. Bring an air compressor if you can so you can keep your trailer tires at the correct psi at all times. We were at Yellowstone last July and most mornings were in the low to mid 30's so bring a sweatshirt at a minimum.

RE: The China-Bomb debate Put to rest

Back in 2010 when I joined this forum the China bomb stories were the same as they are today. Being a new RV'er I seriously considered changing out my brand new tires, but figured that would be silly from a logical perspective. At the time Goodyear still made tires in the US so that was the go to brand of the China bashers. Today it is Maxxis although there are many posts of problems with those tires as well, but invariably the poster gets the blame. I have 22,00 miles on my two sets of China tires without a problem so to all you new RV'ers out there take the China bashing with a grain a salt.

RE: New York to California - best route

80 all the way. I would recommend getting an EZ Pass if you don't have one, but coming from LI you probably already do. June is typically pretty nice weather across the midwest and plains and could be still chilly in WY. Enjoy the trip!

RE: Moab, UT

I agree it is time to let it go. No park is perfect in all respects. I have a Verizon mifi that is out of contract and converted it over (with no charge) to a pay as you go plan. Works great for the 3-4 months a year we travel. I if tried to rely on RV park Wifi it would drive me batty. I also need to do banking on the road and would never not use my own secure connection for that.

RE: Wineguard pathway x2 question

I looked at their web page and read the FAQ's. It clearly states in the FAQ that you can watch two different channels on two TV's but they must be on the same satelite. If this is not acceptable then return it and spend the extra money to get the functionality you desire.

RE: What Is My Tongue Weight Given These Weight Slips

The 220 lbs was shifted from the front axle to the rear axle and is not tongue weight.

RE: Recommend Phoenix destination and route from Wisconsin

There is a KOA in Apache Junction with no age restrictions. If you stay there take the Bush highway off of Rt 87 to Usury Pass road into east Mesa.

RE: Recommend Phoenix destination and route from Wisconsin

Val Vista Village in Mesa has some long pull through spots that would work for you. Get to I40 what ever way is easiest. In Arizona exit at Holbrook and go through Payson to Rt 87 and follow that into Mesa. Turn left on Gilbert road and you are pretty close to Val Vista. Even if you don't stay there the Payson route is the best way into Phoenix in my opinion.

RE: Road to Vernal, UT

Not the easiest drive but I wouldn't be overly concerned about it. A bunch of wide switchbacks going uphill (fairly steep at 7 percent), but the speed limit is low. Then a good downhill to the dam and a few ups and downs over to 80. Stop at the Red Canyon visitor center, It's only six miles from 191 on rt 44 and is well worth a short detour. You won't be disappointed.

RE: EZ Pass with trailer question

I have been through many NY state tolls in different parts of the state and they all counted my axles and charged me correctly.

RE: I 80 out of California through Nevada and Utah

There are some KOA's along the route. The SLC KOA is a really nice campground, easy access on and off of 80 as well.

RE: Problems with Dish TV and Tailgater

My post was directed to the OP to build on yours about the app. I know you can get the other sats and I can't.

RE: Problems with Dish TV and Tailgater

Yep, using the DISHFORMYRV app we can almost always position our Tailgater to pick up all three sats. Wasn't good in the northeast though.

RE: Please verify that I know what I'm doing here. (Weights)

My truck was also 200 lbs heavier than the brochure weight. Yellow sticker was accurate.

RE: Questions about Good Sam Financing

Why don't you call the finance manager and ask exactly what they want done during the inspection. It may just be a Vin check to the title, or a full blown inspection of the motor / transmission / RV applicances, tires, axles, who knows what else.

RE: Best Route Sturgis to Cody

I would go Buffalo to Worland to Greybull to Cody. 100 miles shorter and you have to cross the Bighorns, but 16 is a good road with no steep grades.

RE: Highway 2 thru Maine,NH and Vermont

Stop in NH and see the white mountains. We stayed in Twin Mountain. Some of the prettiest scenry in the country IMO.

RE: Tailgater Satellite Dish

The Cabelas price includes the receiver so it is about a wash. I like local channels so I can record the local news and watch the local weather forecasts. Especially prior to a travel day.

RE: website that provides elevation along a trip plan.

I use an app on my IPad called TopoProfiler. Does exactly what you want.
