RE: Is changing to a quieter AC worth it?

I installed one of the Wacko products and it makes a big difference. Check out Wackoproducts.com. And, no, i don't work for them and would not benefit from a purchase.

RE: Alaska - 2023

Devil's advocate here: We flew to Fairbanks and started a two week tour which included several days on a small cruise ship and some railroad travel. Saw a lot and it was easy on our aging bodies. I'd start the Alaska trip with something similar then go back another time to spend more time if you want. I just noticed Viking has something similar.

RE: Good RV Mattress for heavier people

If you can try Verlo. We've tried most of them and think they are the best but $$$ Remember you spend 1/3 of your life on a mattress so $$$ may not be so high when you think of how it's used. P.S. we have them on both our RV and stick house.

RE: Chicago to Cedar City, UT - route 70 or 80?

I can't seem to find mine but Mountain Directory West may be helpful.

Tire longevity

After two years off for the pandemic we decided to check out the trailer in preparation for our August trip. Our tire guy noticed that our Michelin XPS Ribs were made in 2008 which is when we installed them. Pretty good service we thought so we bought five Rib replacements which should last a lifetime since we are both in our middle 80's.

RE: My campsite map now up to 740 sites

If you ever decide to sell your rig DO NOT share the map with the prospective buyer, as proud as you might be, because it just emphasizes the potential wear and tear that are likely to exist on the RV.

RE: Trip with a 9 year old.

I seem to remember taking our kids, about that age, on vacation and the most fun they had was staying at the Holiday Inn with a pool where they splashed their hearts out. Hint, hint.

RE: Air Compressor

Lots of previous topics on this subject. Search for `air compressor'.

RE: Mystery Battery Draw While Parked UPDATE

We had a low draw from our GPS and camera that we plugged into our 12V socket. When it was cold it was enough to drain down the battery so I had to jump start it. We now try to remember to unplug both overnight.

RE: What I like about tent camping

The last tent I slept in it was Olive Drab color; never again. P.S. you might have to be a vet to understand :-)

RE: Pocket door

Seems to me we had this same problem and removed the door to support the track in the closed part of the pocket. We drilled a couple of holes in the track as far back as can be reached and added screws. The door hanging by a few screws is under stress due to the bouncing of the rv on the bad roads so this is a rather common problem.

RE: 45ft, would I be too limited?

Do you really need a 45 foot 5er? My stick house is only 30 feet wide. Just sayin.

RE: Planning summer 2022 trip to Alaska Fly/Rent

We took a land/sea (small boat) cruise a few years back. I think it was 10 days. The way to go if you have the money but not the time.

RE: Winterizing black and gray tanks

I usually add one gallon of pink stuff to each tank after all of the other winterizing tasks are completed. It doesn't cost much and is cheap insurance. Valves closed of course.

RE: My water heater drain plug is metal, is that a problem?

Might want to consider replacing the anode rod yearly with threads wrapped with teflon tape even tho the rod itself has plenty of life in it if it truly is rusting.

RE: "All-terrain" step stool??

Amazon has one by Camco with adjustable legs from 7.5 to 9 inches.

RE: Replacement Water Pump

Be careful to not get too high a flow pump. The reason is since most demands are small, even showering, the pump can come on, quickly satisfy the pressure requirement, shut off then have to come on again, etc.

RE: Fresh water tank drain.

Don't know where the drain is on your rig but it should be right under the tank. Calls for someone to crawl under the rig and look up. I vote for an empty FW tank. The pink stuff may be hard do totally get rid of next Spring.

RE: Home - Waste Dump

I'm thinking the plumber would decide that but I think ours is at least four inches; probably more like 6.
