RE: Montana - I93 - Glacier NP

You didn't ask about Canada, but you do need to be aware that Canada allows steeper grades all routes then the US does (I've seen 18% grades in BC and 12% in both BC and Alberta). Getting to "93" in Alberta will violate your 6% guideline

RE: Canadian GPS Problem

Way up here in Canada we actually buy the same GPS models that are sold in the US. They work fine on both sides of the border. They use the same mapping data and the same GPS satellite system. There is no subscription needed as you cross the border ( unlike cell phones). ,.... Sorry, wrong answer, my older (Street Pilot i2) Garmin did NOT include Canada until I bought a North America update. The newer Nuvi did include Canada, and Mexico and....

RE: Lithium Ion vs Lead Acid

In a previous life I was slightly involved with some of the largest lead-acid batteries there are, the ones in Submarines. I have friends that are well, deeply involved (up to, and including the Navy's Main Battery Steering Committee) They have been very -VERY- interested in Lithium-Ion battery as a "some-day" replacement for lead-acid battery

RE: Add-ons to new trailer - Suggestions

Power awning, is the "direct response" an option? That is a switch that turns on a vibration sensor in the awning that auto-retracts if the wind comes up

RE: Rules in Yellowstone CG's

Depends on fire danger status At the highest, nothing with an open flame At the lowest, wood fires in established locations are fine. Generally a propane "fire" is fine.

RE: Best state to register a Class A RV in?

Honestly? Your home state. Registering -your- RV in an state other then your home state is seriously frowned upon by most states. Example, Washington fines you twice the money you "saved". If you don't like the tax structure in your home state, vote to change it (either at the ballot box, or with your feet) $198 is nothing, less then setting up a LLC in Montana to "own" the rig.

RE: New tires from Discount Tire.... messed up

Ya, but you saved money because you went to DISCOUNT TIRE and you are not happy??? Whoood a thunk it! Not sure where OP is, but where I'm from, Discount/America's Tire is a great company. I have been a very satisfied customer for over 25 years. How has your experience been with the company? Mine and all of my Car-Nut friends has been solid. To the point where none of us like to use any other source

RE: Torn between FT or House/Condo

Some years back a (retireing) co-worker took out a mortgage on their home, used the proceeds to buy a good used MH. They then leased out the home (their kids lived nearby and could watch it, repair, etc) and hit the road. Some years later, the renters had paid enough for them to have enough equity for them to get a newer MH. They did that cycle twice. Later they then decided they had seen everything in North America, that they could drive to, that they wanted to. They terminated the lease, sold the DP and used that money to refurbish the house and moved back in. During the years they were on the road the renters had paid off the mortgage and paid for some of their capital costs for the RVs. They now have a small RV, suitable for short trips, and are back in their home the rest of the time

RE: Cooking with kiln-dried wood?

I'm also a woodworking, woodturner and have spent more then one day building homes. I would never hesitate to use untreated/unpainted KD wood for cooking, heating, campfires, etc. The wood is simply force dried. There are no chemicals used. As point of fact, the firewood in the rig right now is mostly KD, the rest is cut-offs from woodturning.

RE: Warning Horseshoe Lake Washington State

There are LOTs of "Horseshoe Lakes". It's the one near Port Orchard, ie WHERE I LIVE, I've gone swimming in that lake, at the County Park were people (probably) all got ill. How do you think I know, and NO KOMO is -not- reporting "near" Mt St Helens, I just watched the news LIVE Local paper

RE: Walmart DEF - Check carefully

Recently I was reading an business analysis article on employee "shrinkage", that is employee theft. According to the article WalMart has one of the highest employee shrinkage rates in the retail sector, as a percentage of their total business

RE: Warning Horseshoe Lake Washington State

Not your fault that the news article is SOOO wrong (Fox, sigh, again) The lake is "close" to Mt Saint Helens if you live in say New York. Actually the lake is like 3-1/2 hours of driving west and north of the mountain. The lake is actually close to Port Orchard The lake has also been closed since the weekend, due to the problem, and will likely remain closed until fall.

RE: Hot water has odor

All of the above are possible causes, bad water, bacteria or anode. My call is bacteria is the most common.

RE: Northwood Manufacturing's Defective Trailer

Apparently most people have no idea what a Northwoods True North is You Tube Video No plumbing, not a single pipe. That means the water came in from the outside. That certainly hints at some poor maintenance as a possibility. At least to the possibility of not noticing something like a failure in the underside sealing.

RE: Canada to US border crossing

My ol'job involved actually going to Canada to work, sometimes driving a US Gov vehicle. Depending on what was going on, this could involve up to: my crew (me and up to 5 people), a semi (two drivers), two 15 passenger vans (just about full), a pickup with three or four more and usually a handful of personal vehicles. If I crossed at the "usual" crossing the questions where quite perfunctory as we knew both sides (Canada and US) people at least by sight, and they knew us. If any of us crossed at one of the less usual spots things sometimes got amusing. Late one Friday night (I wanted to go home, so I left Friday after work, rather then wait for Sat AM) I was crossing at one of the more unusual spots and the US guard asked me why I was in Canada, did I have anything to declare, did... did... did. By this time the questioning was getting a little ridiculous. Finally asked me why I was driving a US Gov vehicle (I repeated the answer to why I was in Canada). He then asked me my Civil Service grade. I told him and he got very quiet and said I could go. As I drove away I realized that while my part of the Gov I was just a schmuck lead engineer, in his part of the Gov I was the same grade as his bosses, boss.
