RE: Mass Pike Boston to Venice FL

Its all about timing. You can do the 95 boogie but need to time your self around the major cities. Up early stop mid afternoon and go again. When Towing we have taken 78 to 81 sb to 66 to 95. Brings us out near Fredericksburg where we bed down for the night. That's the hardest part of the trip. Wake up and head dwon 95. 77 takes you further west to make the cut over. As you pointed out the biggest issue is around the major cities. Last sb trip while towing we left Long Island 3 am and were in fbergs around 1:30. took a power nap went to dinner then shoved off the next morning after bfast and it was easy sailing. Hope that helps

RE: solar

We dry camp around 40 nights a year, have 648 watts of solar and 4 trojan t125s wet cells. That gives us 250 amps usable power, that is if you want your wt cells to last. they are designed for full draw down, but then you'll get around 3 years out of them. I sold my first TT after 10 years and they were still going strong. All you need is either a volt meter plugged into the 12 volt house system, or check them manually. I would love lithium but prices haven't come down enough for me. As stated a back up gen is a good idea. Since we solar-ed we no longer carry the 3000i, but rather the 2000i. We seem to use it maybe 2x a year as we also work while camping. While im a solar fan, I am wondering what the cost would be for a propane rv fridge vs cost of solar & batt set up.Just a thought. We seem fine with up to 4 people for a week in terms of food storage typically without a cooler outside. Good Luck and happy trails!

RE: Honda Eu3000 Problem

Thats interesting. I have my carb cleaned once as it was running rough. I always run the gas dry. Ive owned this since 2004 and always use Startron in my gas which cleans and stabilizes the fuel. Great machine.

RE: Which pick up to buy for towing big fifth wheel?

Depends on what you really want to do. You can tow 14,000 with a SRW. We went with a SRW short bed Crew Cab as we only spend around 40ish nights at the moment. My point is this is an everyday truck when not towing. A long bed dually is like driving a bus. Yes that's probably the best tow truck but you cant wheel around town in it to well. Has a large turn radius and you need to park away from people. So when you towed and at a cg and want to go exploring, into town etc, when unhitched you'll have to deal with parking/driving issues on tight streets. This was our decision. Our F250 CC Short Bed Gasser is perfectly matched with our 37' Heritage Glen Fifth wheel. If I change the rear end I can pull 15,000 and do not see the need to spend an extra $10-$15k for a diesel. We do just fine with our setup and 4x4 on the beach with the fiver. Actually that's where we spend the most time. In the sand. So think about your use and after towing use. That will answer your question. Happy Trails
