RE: Turned 65, use the VA, but do I need Medicare?

Medicare part A is automatic. Medicare part B is not mandatory to use VA benefits If you choose like a lot of vets to have a suppliment for better coverage, then buy part B for around $125 a month then go shopping for one of the suppliment carriers. These can run from free to hundreds a month. The more you pay the lower your copays.

RE: Towing capacity

Keep your search to travel trailers, and keep your search to those under 7000 GVWR and you will be OK. You might be able to up that a bit, you the higher you go the less happy you will be. Remember, your towing rating was originally based on a base level truck with 1/4 tank of gas and a 150 pound driver.

RE: Towing capacity

Read my lips.... no fifth wheels with a f150/1500 series truck. Unless it is 20 feet or less long. Its not a matter of towing, but rather a matter of loading. A typical fifth wheel will load approx 20% of its loaded weight directly over the trucks rear axle. 1500 type trucks tend to have P metric tires with very low load carrying capacity. To prove my point, load your truck up like your going to go camping and drive across a set of scales. Subtract your scaled weight from the GVWR as posted on your drivers door post.

RE: mattress replacement

Go buy the same mattress you have at home. We did and never regretted it.

RE: A little imput please

Check out winebago windshield frame rot threads. Not sure if that year had the problems, but worth exploring before commiting.

RE: Verizon

Any carrier can move your number to their service. Done every day. Verizon cannot or will not unlock your phone. YOU are responsible for that. Do a web search for unlocking Iphones, and start reading. As for changing carriers, good luck. I am not positive if you could switch a Verizon phone to a different carrier. But there are a few pay as you go plans that work on Verizon network. Check them out.

RE: Sharp microwave/convec oven, "59 second" problem

Junk it. Go to any big box store and buy the replacement that fits your opening and suits your fancy.

RE: Roof Construcktion Types

Never seen a wood roof on any RV. Except maybe a few home built ones. Most current RVs have either TPO or EPDM roofs. For the discussion, just say rubber. Roof construction is generally interior ceiling material fastened to roof trusses, insulation, followed by wood substrate, usually OSB or plywood, with rubber glued on top. Most roofs will support 250 to 300 pounds, so generally safe to walk on. Roof trusses can be either wood or aluminum, with most higher end units opting for aluminum. Really makes little difference except in weight, cost, and reduced chances of rot if a leak occurs. So, what is your real question?

RE: Boondocking with dogs?

Boon docking with pets is no different than a full hookup park with pets. Same exact rules should apply. Remember, boondocking usually means, no running water, no electricity, no sewer except what you bring on board your RV. It also means likely no internet.

RE: Winter water supply

We spend the winter of 2013 in the Columbia river gorge. We got down to the low teens with snow and winds at a pretty constant 20MPH. The park had freeze proof faucets, so heated water hose, 5 gallon bucket upside down over the faucet with a 75 watt drop light bulb inside. We did fine all winter that way with no freezeups after that.

RE: Best Way To Secure Solar Panels and The Wires on The Roof

Dicor Lap Seal. My wiring has been held in place with dabs of Dicor for nearly 10 years. A couple of times I have cleaned the old and added a bit of new, but not often.

RE: Planning Mt. Hood Trip Need Input

Trillium Lake national forest campground. It's a beauty. Sites to 40'. Last time we visited about 5 years ago it was getting over run by undesirables. Lots of thefts, peoples boats being taken and used by thieves.

RE: I would like to hear some discussion about Nash

Owned a 2002 Fox 19B. Great but small floor plan. Two downsides, cushions are really soft, and lack of a permanent bed means a bad sleeping experience. We had a custom sized mattress made and made the couch into a permanent bed. Warning, they are definitely heavy. Our 19B pulled OK with our Tahoe, but I sure would not want anything smaller to pull it with.
