RE: What model is this?

Thanks, but don't be too impressed with my work. A simple right-click "Search Google for image" and I had the link within about 30 seconds. I really like that feature for internet sleuthing.

RE: Driving through D.C.

The DC Metro system is reliable, affordable, generally safe and easy to navigate. Unless your daughters are younger than I'm assuming, I'd consider dropping them at the Greenbelt Metro station which is just off the beltway on the north side of the city and let them Metro in. Many hotels in the city are a quick walk from a Metro station. If not, Uber is an option.

RE: Why extra coax connections in 5th wheel?

Possibly one is routed to a cable connector on the outside of the trailer and the other to a satellite connector. Have you located the coax hookup connectors outside (or in a utility bay)? Is there one or two? I would guess that fifth wheel is prewired for satellite. Weird setup as I will also have to drill a hole in the floor of the compartment so that the door doesn't have to stay open and bang bang and forth in the wind when a cable is connected. If the bay has your water connections, are there flip down or spinning covers on the bottom to allow hoses to hookup while closing the bay door? I've had that setup and just routed the coax through there. Maybe I misunderstood the placement but if inside the wet utility bay like I had that might work.

RE: Brake Buddy Remote Control

About the cheapest I could find was $190. Plus would be around $9 shipping. Still not exactly a good deal. https://www.partsmate.net/boat_parts/general_boating/hopkins_manufacturing_39505_brake_buddy__vantage_select_remote_hopkins_274588.html?gclid=Cj0KCQiAnL7yBRD3ARIsAJp_oLbVTGvWAj2n87zCi2CCKZS0AJ1DxBA5nYbg0AkTivE_Q11BiFJZg8caApyjEALw_wcB

RE: replacement hand held shower

Yes the threads should be the same. Because of water flow limitations in RV's, many opt for one of the Oxygenics type shower heads that supposedly introduce air into the water flow to provide a stronger shower with less water. We have used one and it did seem to help.

RE: Nashville with kids?

You should be aware that the long range forecast for the next couple of weeks here projects rain pretty much every day. It's been a dismal, cold and rainy winter here so far and that pattern doesn't appear to be changing in the near term. If the weather doesn't dissuade you and you are still interested in a trip down this way, I'd recommend Chattanooga over Nashville for young families. Way more to interest the kids IMO. We live in Nashville and that's where we've always taken our kids.

RE: 2002 Sightseer OBD location

Ford mounts the OBD to the steering column under the dash. They have a small plastic ackward to get off cover. It is about half way between firewall and dash. Yep, this. ^^^ On my Winnie, I had to lay awkwardly across the doghouse wedged between the drivers seat and the console to locate it. Take some ibuprofen.

RE: Absolute positively the worst road ever

The worst road is the one back to work on Monday after a camping trip.

RE: Class A crash

He noted in the comments that he was the only one on board and walked away, thankfully. Glad no one was in the front passenger seat...looks like the overhead drop-down bed came down hard on that seat.

RE: Dollywood best time

Schools here in TN start back up by the 2nd week of August, so if you can do a trip the second half of August and do Dolly on a weekday you should be good. Of course, it'll be hot! But Dollywood has a fair amount of shade and a nice waterpark.

RE: Ford Engine size

I've owned 3 vehicles with the 6.8L Ford V10, one of them a 2014 F53 chassis, and IIRC all of my owner's manuals recommended Motorcraft 5W-20 synthetic blend.

RE: Locked radio on my 2001 Suburban

Is this video helpful? I know you already got the codes and tried to call, but thought maybe the 800 number in the video was different. Good luck. https://youtu.be/apJXIxFpfcc

RE: Flattest routes from GA To Nashville,TN

Where in Georgia? If south Georgia, you can take a number of routes west into Alabama and pick up 65 in Montgomery or Birmingham, avoiding the worst of the grades such as Monteagle. If you're coming up from Atlanta, you can still head west on 20 to Birmingham and then up 65. It'll add miles but you'll avoid Chattanooga and Monteagle. If North GA, I'm not sure how to avoid mountains without going far out of your way. Maybe someone else has a suggestion.

RE: .

I think there is enough "graffiti", in-your-face advertising everywhere. No thank-you! But is anyone old enough on these forums to remember when the Pall Mall tobacco advertisers use to go around and offer to paint barns for free, provided they were allowed to paint the side with their Pall Mall cigarette advertisement? You don't see that very much any more today. There is still one old barn not too far from where I live that still has the barn with that advertisement. It's encouraging to know, that.. way back then ... at least ... they used long-lasting paint! No thanks! Not on my RV! One of my Dad's barns on the farm was painted by Mail Pouch Tobacco.

RE: stopping point/overnight camp between Ohio & Fort Wilderness

Thanks guys! so many good suggestions.... However, will I need to make advance reservations for any of these overnight campgrounds south of atlanta for the evening of new years eve? or is there enough options that getting one night wont be a problem? thanks! I have found that many campgrounds along I-75 catering to overnight guests will fill up as the evening progresses by folks without reservations simply stopping for the night, and many folks stop earlier than I like to. But in the afternoon there are lots of spots. Not wanting to stop that early, I often will prepare ahead of time a list of potential stopping places along my route, with their phone numbers. Then when I stop to fuel up mid to late afternoon, I'll see how the day has been going and decide about how much farther I want to get, and make a phone call to reserve a spot at that point. I hate to make a reservation days or weeks ahead not knowing how the traveling will go, but by the afternoon of that day I know how far I'll get and can usually get a spot reserved, whereas if I wait until 8 or 9 that evening to stop without a reservation, it's possible the campground will be full. By the way, I like to use this map resource when planning out my list of potential stops. https://www.epgsoft.com/CampgroundMap/

RE: stopping point/overnight camp between Ohio & Fort Wilderness

In my opinion, Cincinnati to Valdosta in late December is a bit aggressive, considering how early it gets dark, the holiday week traffic, and having kids along. I've certainly pushed that many miles in a day, and it's possible, but you end up being exhausted. However, Atlanta South certainly seems doable. I've stayed there before, and it was fine for an overnight...plenty of pull through sites and easy on/off the interstate. The only thing I recall was the bath houses not being great, but that was probably 8 years ago so it's quite possible they've been upgraded since then. A friend of mine stops regularly at the Forsyth KOA on their way to the Fort, and they always have good things to say about it. If you do decide to push through to the Valdosta area, I really like Eagles Roost in Lake Park GA for an overnight.
