RE: Whitewater Retro 177

Thanks all. He is dry camping now taking boy scouts on rock climbing adventure so has no 120v overnight (can't run gen overnight where he is). He is trying to jerry rig something for the long weekend with a battery but looking for something more permanent. He has new CPAP and supposed to have 12v. When he gets back next week I'll go down to his house and wire a 12v outlet next to the bed and another in the kitchen area if I don't find one. Tiger, that's the problem I ran in to. Sent email to mfgr but no response.

Whitewater Retro 177

My son has this unit and can't find any 12v outlet for his CPAP. He is traveling now and I plan to add outlet when he returns if necessary. Does anyone know if there is one installed somewhere in the unit? Has anyone added one and if so how big a deal was the wiring?

RE: Elks and Moose Lodges

We have stayed at Elks lodges across the country. Friendly places to stop. They range from full campgrounds to a spot in their parking lot with no hookups. With the modern motorhomes you can spend 3 to 5 days without hookups and stop along the way to dump elsewhere. Always conversation at the bar (unless you get there on a closed night) and many nights get a meal. I have been offered in some places a plug to plug in 20amp cord into one of their outside outlets as well. My lodge Santa Barbara, for example, has 50 amp, TV, water and a dump station at a quiet location. That in addition to lunches and some dinners.

RE: No Leveling System in my Class A

If you have slides, I would have leveling mechanism to keep from damaging slide mechanism on unlevel ground. Blocks or jacks are a personal choice. I would put the jacks on (as I did on a previous 1991 class A years ago). If you don't have slides, it is not as important. Fridge does not have to be completely level to work.

RE: RV Parks

I have been RVing for over 30 years and ran into that once: an RV resort. It is a non issue to traveling.

RE: Replacing Broken Door latch

How about taking a Dremel tool and enlarge the holes in the striker plate

RE: Don't rely on Garmin RV760 LTM GPS routes.

That can happen with maps, web sites as well. One trip I checked the NM state web sites for camping in Taos area and found a state park with camping on THEIR web site. Took motorhome up the hill on narrow 2 lane road and got to the gate - LOCKED. Campground was closed. NM never updated their site. Had to U turn motorhome and car on hill. Not pleasant. Always double check routes to places you have never been. hard way to learn.

RE: Great Falls to Boston and miss Chicago?

We have gone east several times (used to live there) and found going from your start to Eau Claire then the UP and down to Port Huron crossing into Canada then to Niagara Falls then on to Boston to be a nice route. Depending on your vehicle range you can fill diesel in Port Huron then in US in New York.

RE: Towing 2012 crv

Add a fused 12 power line from your motorhome through the umbilical connectors to the + battery terminal of the CRV. You will always have charged battery in CRV and enough amperage to drive your aux brake. After installation have to do nothing more than hook up the car to the motorhome hitch and electrical connectors. We went from jump starting almost all the time to key starting all the time.

RE: Albuquerque Balloon Festival, experience with camping there?

We have camped at VIP area just to south of the field. Short walk to center of field and price includes entry passes for the time you are there. Worked great for us. No utilities but there are sewer and water trucks available for a fee.

Just bought Garmin RV 760 LMT from The GPSStore.com. Looks good. input two large sets of custom POI's with POI loader and that worked fine. Set up multiple routes for next trip. After a short learning seems to be intuitive.

RE: Want to upgrade - Is diesel worth it?

It was to us. The engine noise of the two gas model I had, particularly the last one with Ford engine were too noisy for my wife's ears and the negotiation over the dog house was a problem for her. The engine in the rear is easy on the ears and solved her problem. Bonus is smoother ride. Negative is the additional cost, but at this time in our lives a few bucks here and there makes no difference compared to the added comfort.

RE: Cargo

Don't know your configuration but we have a slide out tray in one of our compartments that provides access. The tray rolls on rollers along a metal track. If your configuration allows they are purchasable at RV outlets.

RE: Trip Planning Software - Not Sure About MS Street & Trips

Consider using this POI megafile. You can be selective on which ones you activate foryour particular trip file you are building: http://msstreets.com/poimegafile/

RE: RV Convection oven

Convection is like a regular oven, heating for baking. Mine has also a button to shut off the carrousel so if baking with a rectangular dish it will not rotate and get stuck because oven is wider than deep. I have baked at 425 degrees. Not sure of working off inverter. You'll have to check the wattage draw of the particular microwave against the ability of your alternator to keep up with the draw. I have used the generator to run air conditioners driving. Would be same for oven.

RE: Honda CR-V AWD vs 4WD

I have 2012 AWD. Tows great. Battery tends to discharge when towing. Read threads on Dingy towing regarding this subject. After first discharge and need to jump start, I fixed problem.

RE: Diesel Mileage

I am averaging 8.2 mpg with Cat 350. 100 gal tank, I start looking for refuel after about 400 miles so I have plenty of miles to stop without panic.

RE: Hello

May have already done this but before the trip have vehicle serviced (oil, lube, brakes, filters, etc), check tire dates to make sure they are not 9 year old tires (replace if original tires). On travel days, check fluid levels and tire pressure before starting out. On the air manifold that feeds the air horns install a compressed air outlet and purchase an air hose so you can top off your tires with the on board air compressor. If you have a smart phone, there are free apps for truck stops, fuel locations and rest areas. Plan ahead for fuel and use google earth street view to check ease of entry and exit of fuel stations. There are also apps for campgrounds and rvparkreviews.com to check potential stops along the way.
