RE: Upgrade for Alaska?

And ....sometimes things work out fine too :) We completed the epic 11,000 mile roundtrip this summer in less than 7 weeks. Absolutely, we would have liked more time but we didn't have it. We had a good trip and really nothing of any significance went wrong. All of our reservations were correct and no flat tires! Our biggest issue was our water pump quit working around Destruction Bay...turns out the plug came loose from that nice smooth stretch of the Alaskan Highway up there ;) This!!!! I went in 03 in a used 40 footer towing a Dodge neon. 5 weeks total 10k miles. Great trip and can't wait to go back. kids were only 6 and 10, they loved it. JUST GO FOR IT. You can take 4 months to do it when your retired. But you will have all the memories of this trip between now and then. And getting there is half of the fun.

RE: Upgrade for Alaska?

Momentarily switching gears back to the RV for a moment...Suppose we end up in a 45 footer? Can we still get by without a toad in AK for our whirlwind trip? A used hdt conversion is calling to me! That sounds nice!! Go for it.

RE: Getting into 5th wheel.

Plan on getting a Jayco Eagle 26.5 RLS due to limited parking space. Now looking for a hitch to put on Dodge Ram 3500. Would like to get one that gives good turning radius such a Pullrite. or go with regular hitch and change Kingpin to Reese sidewinder. What do I need? Take a look at the various B&W hitches. Great products and a great company to stand behind them. Lyle X2

RE: GMC 3500hd camper weight capacity

We keep saying that on forum and this keeps getting away from the attention. GVW is a number fabricated for tax/fee purpose and is VERY loosely related to vehicle capabilities. Use actual axle ratings for real life calculations. This is wrong. GVW is not a number pulled out of thin air for tax purposes.

RE: California sr 87 -Traffic ticket!

I'd love to be behind all the hard nose "stay between the lines" responders when they come up behind some bicycles out on a mountain road. I'll bet none would follow along for miles at 5 miles an hour instead of just violating the yellow lines and sweeping on past at a somewhat safe location. Sometimes you gotta use a little common sense. X2

RE: Residential Fridge or Not?

Been Rving since 1968. 9 diff units, only had 1 problem with a RV fridge in that time. I've had 3 5th wheels with absorption fridges (1996 and 2000 Jayco Designers; 2004 DRV Mobile Suites). The 2000 Jayco's Norcold cooling unit failed within 4 months of delivery; the 2004 DRV's Dometic cooling unit failed within 8 months of delivery. I'm glad your experience has been different. As I said, I personally know of 2 rigs belonging to friends that have been totaled due to RV fridge fires. That's not info garnered from the internet or the press. Rusty I believe you. I just don't see a problem with the millions of Rv fridges out there doing there thing. If a res fridge is what you want, awesome. Here is America we still(sort of) have a choice. Have a great day.

RE: Residential Fridge or Not?

Been Rving since 1968. 9 diff units, only had 1 problem with a RV fridge in that time. Got it fixed in a couple hours. I love being off the grid. Fires in RV's are like plane crashes, they get a lot of press. I don't have a problem with res fridge, they just aren't for me. If it works for you, thats great. my .02 cents

RE: Solar advice

So what does this battery moniter tell you. I looked at the add but couldn't tell. Seems like a decent price though.The meter I bought on eBay displays battery voltage and charge or discharge current (+/-). It comes with a shunt that is mounted close to the negative post of the battery. I believe that the cheaper models will not display discharge current so check closely before purchasing. There are also models that will display amp-hours. Here's a link:Volt/Amp meter on eBay http://i1270.photobucket.com/albums/jj620/dykb1982/haru/200v2121-5.jpg width=200 Thank you!

RE: Just getting started... Tips

Buy way more truck than you think you need. That way 3 years from now when things change, you can still keep the same truck. I love off roading with a dually. 6 tires clawing their way thru mud. Love it. Been doing it for over 40 years.

RE: Upgrade for Alaska?

If you fly you miss all the good stuff in Canada, don't blame you for driving. Homer is awesome, and not just for fishing. Eagles everywhere, great places for food and awesome views. One of our favorites.

RE: Upgrade for Alaska?

i took a 40 foot DP towing a car and never had a problem finding a place to park and take the toad. A super c will drive very nice, you will make time with that. I feel the same way you do when I get back from a vacation. I want to be beat. Vacation is an adventure, use every minute to have fun. You guys will be fine, just go for it.

Does anyone know if Host will be at the RV show. I would really like to see a Everest in person.
