RE: 240V split phase inverter

Yes, we had one when I worked for the Navy... we used it and about a ton of batteries to power equipment when we had to make no (zero) mechanical noise It was a Xantrek, but looking through their web-site I'm not finding the model

RE: RV Consumer Group

... About the same time there was a discussion in another forum about this guys use of the non-profit, yet there was none of the required IRS filings by the group. Probably because no-one involved actually knew what they were talking about. They have a registered DBA (Doing Business As) in Washington and their IRS registration is under BaseCamp Last time I checked they 990 filed for every year since 1982

RE: RV Consumer Group

They can be, and are, useful. I've used their info, and the knowledge I learned from them to help buy several rigs now. I've been a member (off and on, mostly off) over the years. No they don't just collect sales flyers; they inspect rigs, visit factories, ask owners, etc No they don't buy rigs, but they do talk to people that do. One of the publications I bought from them was a book on how to inspect RVs your self. Knowing how to look for quality and how to tell what was "good" and what was "bad" is really useful. Bottom line, they are a tool to help you make a wise choice.

RE: To Alaska by ferry from Washington State?

You would have to change Ferries in Juneau

RE: Odd payload numbers on the 2017 F350 DRW vs. 2016 F350 DRW

There are some things I really like about the new Fords, like that the fuel tanks are going to be 66 gals. The increased height, not so much.

RE: In case you missed it, Camping World's IPO

Marcus did an interview with CNBC which was, interesting... All of the income from the IPO will be used to pay down debt. CW makes little off the sale of rvs. Instead they make their $$$ on extended warranties, insurance, services, etc.

RE: Yellowstone Last wk in May or 1st wk in June

I lived in the area for 5 years, one year we didn't get a light snow in late May or early June. At the same time it had been in the upper 70's just before. I really like that time of year, much of the game is still down in the valleys and basins, plus there are few "Turons". The Madison area is usually open by then.

RE: Carlisle HD Tire Review

We've been running them for over a year now, with about 12,000 on them. Zero issues in hot/cold/wet/dry. I check them before every day of driving, and on the road (quick look inspection then). A TPMS is nice, but it doesn't tell you about bald spots, nicks in the sidewall, bulges, etc. LOOK at your tires often. Yes, balancing is good.

RE: Coquihalla Highway (Highway 5) in late May

I have seen it snowing there that time of year, but it's really rare. Expect dry pavement with lots of grades (up & down)

RE: Worth stopping in Yellowstone Park at end of October?

Looks like there is about 6 inches of snow at Old Faithful this morning. I still see a few people out looking at the thermal features though.

RE: Camping World and Corporate America

About meatballs? Once the older generation dies off, the younger generation will then be the older generation. Unfortunately, then ..... the old generation will be complaining about the younger generation too! Just remember ... what goes around comes around! Unfortunately, all of us current old timers will be long dead and never get to see the pay-back! I am most positive my grand parents had serious issues with my parents generation, and my generation when my generation were just young kids too! I was paying attention "back when", the Greatest Generation was ah, complaining, about us Boomers. So now when us Boomers start complaining about X-Gen or Millenials, raising the same issues that were raised about us, I quietly laugh. ;)

RE: Lifetime updates for Garmin GPS

.. Dick, is the dezl 760LMT the same as the "RV 760LMT" ? They are the same "base" unit with differing "setup". The Dezl is aimed for commercial trucking and has "things" loaded that are aimed for that market. While the RV has campgrounds, etc built in

RE: Yellowstone/Teton National Parks

A lot also depends on your definition of "see the park". If all you are doing is parking at thermal features and view-points for 10 min, a day is about right. If you are getting out and walking (or hiking, or...) a week might not be enough time.

RE: Worth stopping in Yellowstone Park at end of October?

Can anyone tell me if there is any point in stopping at Yellowstone during the last week of October, first week of November on our way down to Arizona? Or is it too late in the year to see anything. From the Roads info page Roads closing: October 11: Dunraven Pass (Tower Fall to Canyon); Beartooth Pass (US 212 to Red Lodge, Montana) closed November 7: All roads except the road between the North Entrance and the Northeast entrance close at 8:00 am

RE: Towing a fifth wheel back from anchorage ak February

.... If you route home via the great plains you will travel in many days of winter weather. If you route home via Yukon,BC, and the west states you will have milder weather and lose winter sooner. Sounds like an adventure... Unfortunately the BC to Washington route gives lots more mountain passes. So it's a mixed thing.

RE: Towing a fifth wheel back from anchorage ak February

I'm curious, Sue, as to the temperatures you experienced on that 11 hour drive from Anchorage to home. . . Dale The average high in Yellowknife, in Feb, is about 25F, average low about 15F. There is about 8 hr of daylight in early Feb

RE: Towing a fifth wheel back from anchorage ak February

... and living in it while traveling? Doesn't sound like fun. Certainly not one campground will be open, your tanks and water lines could freeze (we are talking about lows to -40 or more). Be prepared to park, maybe for days, waiting for the roads to clear after a storm. On one hand commercial traffic travels that road year around. But they are used to this, have large fuel tanks, carry emergency gear, carry chains and use them. Both Alberta and BC (I'm not certain about the territories) would require you to carry (and use as needed) chains, maybe even drag chains on the trailer. Me, I grew up in that country and doubt I'd try it. But then I wouldn't try to stay in an RV in an Alaska winter either.
