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.

RE: Experiences with Space Craft?

Pyoung is correct, they make top notch rigs, but aim primarily at Carny and "special" (like "bunk" trailers). Personally I think the New Horizons aims more at the 'recreation' full-time crowd, while Spacecraft aims at the 'working' full-time crowd. Of course either will build you a great rig, designed the way you want it. Either also requires a substantial truck, ie maybe something more then even a '1-ton'

RE: Nash TT winterizing

As for how much....my 24-5N used a gallon, my 29-5E uses about a gallon and a half. For the 24-5N the low point drains where outside, under the kitchen sink, for the 29-5E they are in the basement under then bathroom sink.

RE: Firearm deposit at border?

Many of the gun-shops around Bellingham WA are used to offering this service.

RE: Dry camping for night at Victoria Coho ferry terminal

I'd call the BlackBall Lines and ask them. I haven't ridden the ferry regularly in years (I used to ride it weekly), back then the answer on Port Angles was nothing overnight. They did allow parking (no slides) at Victoria, but not PA There is an RV park very nearby (Peabody Creek)

RE: Route south around Seattle to Olympia

Yup, the only way around adds more time then just driving through (WA-20 to the Port Townsend-Keystone ferry, continue on WA-20 to US-101 then on to Olympia)

RE: I-90 Homestake Pass

RE: 2007 Arctic Fox 29-5e

Never snapped our 2012 nor our 1999 24-5N. I don't know if my 2012 uses the same slide mech as the 2007, but it's the same as the 99. For those you release the motor from the mechanism and advance the slide in/out with a wrench. The landing gear on ours are standard Lippert type and just about any RV parts place should be able to get one.

RE: Replacing an Analog Thermostat with a Digital

Got mine at Walmart for around 20 bucks. Just a regular household one. Nope Regular house thermostat's run off 24VAC, they will not run off 12 VDC, period. It must be a battery powered "house" type.

RE: New Garmin RV660LMT GPS

Can't comment on the RV660, but my RV760 alerts me to downgrades, sharp turns and reduced speed limits just to name a few. The ability to change it from RV to automobile mode is a benefit as well. Have used it on the road for the last 5 months and it has worked pretty well. One of the new features in the 660 is it can display the upcoming grade profile. It is also supposed to have an "improved" built in POI directory.

RE: GPS Questions

The Campground data-base in the Rand is better then the one in the Garmin. That being said, the user interface of the Garmin is better. Also you can add any one of several Campground POI's to the Garmin. My choice was the Garmin, the RV-760 is in the process of being discontinued for the RV-660. The map on the Garmin shows you upcoming fuel-stops, it does not break out Gas vrs Diesel. It shows upcoming Campgrounds. If you have it set to show the mileage to the next exit, if the next exit is a rest stop it will display that. You can easily access (voice or manual) the campground, rest-stop or fuel-stop data bases, showing the distances to each. I know of no way, short an ad-on POI to access diesel stations only.

RE: Canadian Health Care

Rather then listen to Internet "X" perts, call your insurance company and see what your policy actually is. Mine covers any emergency visit in Canada, Japan, Korea or (most) of Europe.

RE: Bretz RV in Missoula for Motorhome Work ?

No experience But I used to know the guys at Hamilton RV, unless things have changed they may be a good choice.

RE: Factory to Dealer Transport

... I'm talking about Oregon Hwy. 242 in case you want to look at it on Google Maps. Something I just thought about: suppose the drivers did have time to take in a little sightseeing. They could have parked in Sisters, Oregon and taken one of the 'Toads'... a jeep and be back in a couple of hours to continue on a safer route. Just saying, that's what I would do. I kinda thought it as the McKenzie Highway you were talking about. But seriously I've towed across it and it's not nearly as bad as you are making it out to be.

RE: Factory to Dealer Transport

Of course not every "rig" is driven or towed to the dealer. Over the summer I saw semi-trailers with multiple (smaller) trailers and even class-B motorhomes. I even saw one with a 5er on the bed, along with a smaller TT
