RE: 5050 miles in 9 Travel Days

My record, though not towing a 5th wheel was about 1450 miles ( Baton Rouge to Cheyenne, Wy. ) in 24 hours. But, I was inspired, much younger and in an automobile! :) memtb You've got me beat... in 2009 I drove 1260 miles from Gunnison, Colorado to Milwaukee in 22 hours in a Dodge Caravan. We got to Denver much quicker than I expected, so I changed plans. JK

RE: Besides Amazon where?

Beware of Ebay for electronics. I got a great deal on a new Furrion observation camera from a private seller that failed less than a year later. I called Furrion for a warranty replacement and they said "Didn't buy it from a store? Too bad." Seller was no help. JK

RE: is a surge protector necessary for a basic travel trailer?

Got a refrigerator? Got a furnace? Got an air conditioner? Yup, you need one. But.... what you really need is an EMS for true protection. JK

RE: Locking surge protector

I bought our Progressive Industries EMS 3 years ago along with a locking cable. Haven't used the locking cable in 2 years. What's a thief gonna do with a surge protector anyway? JK

RE: Grand Isle SP, LA

Being from Wisconsin, I was surprised at how few mosquitoes were in the south...until we got to Grand Isle state Park. That was in late March 2018. Deet works well. Nice campground. JK

RE: Camper type wood burning stove for home...

Look up Slim Potatohead on YouTube. He's a minimalist in a small trailer who recently had a couple videos demonstrating his pellet stove. Interesting fellow. JK

RE: Pilot to 0ne 9

When we got off exit 19 in Quartzsite last week, we saw that the Arco station was changed to One9. I thought they named it after this exit. Now I'm disappointed.

RE: cost of Morryde suspension.

We had the Morryde SRE4000 installed at the Open Range rally in 2018 along with wet bolts and 1- X Factor crossbar. I think I paid $1500. It was installed by Performance Trailer Braking. They usually have a rally discount. JK Edit: Looked it up, $1040 total.

RE: Trouble on the border

Too many people here have preconceived stereotypes. We were at Big Bend last week, mostly in Lajitas and also boondocked at picnic areas near there with our rig. There are no issues, don't need a gun. It's a great area that shouldn't be missed. Paranoia...it turns people into fools. JK

RE: Exterior/Interior coatings on new travel trailers

When we bought ours, we got a great deal on our rig, so I decided to get the product. 5 year guarantee. After 3 years, the gray fiberglass was oxidizing. I sent them pics and they sent their guy out to my house. Looked like brand new when he reapplied it. Now after the 4th year, oxidation is coming back on the rear which faces south in storage,so I will call them again. But one thing is, the decals really held up well. Never faded, no cracking. When the 5 years are up, I will try the Poly Coat(?), but I'm very happy with how the decals are doing. JK

RE: RV Magazine

I subscribed to Motorhome Magazine when we first bought our Class C. It was an okay magazine. I kept the subscription for 2 years and then cancelled it. There is so much more useful info on the internet that the magazine is not very useful. Want a review of a particular RV, go to YouTube and get a video walk through. Have a problem? Go to YouTube, someone else most likely already has had it and created a video about fixing it. Between YouTube and all the different RV message boards, there is nothing a magazine can provide that would top what is on the internet. -Michael But I don't have a TV in the bathroom, and my wife scowls at me if I take the phone in there.

RE: Our Splendide 2100XC finally died

You're saying an extended rv warranty company replaced it? What warranty company is that? JK

RE: Having Fun in the Sun!

We're dry camping in the Everglades and it's too **** hot! The low last night was about 75. Give me some pity... JK

RE: Short Term Freezing Weather Tips?

If you have an enclosed underbelly, disconnect the hose going to the rig, let the furnace run overnight (60s ok) and don't worry about it. Even without the furnace upper 20s for a few hours won't penetrate. JK

RE: Wifi in remote areas

We use the Winegard Connect2 wifi extender +4G hotspot. As I type this we are in the Everglades National Park campground using this device. It is sometimes finicky and expensive if you watch YouTube. $60 for 10 gigs that seem to burn fast. As I said before, people confuse the device with the service (which is what the service provider WANT YOU TO DO!) That device can work on multiple networks with the correct SIM card. Correct- You can use an ATT/Verizon sim card IF you you have an account with them. I do not, so I buy data from Winegard.

RE: Fuel mileage

With the rig in my signature I generally get 9-10 mpg manually doing the math. Last week from Wisconsin to the Florida keys I got 9.1. Fifth wheel weights about 11,500 lbs. JK

RE: I-65 Alabama

Just today we towed our 5th wheel on I-65,although we went north to south to Montgomery, and it was ok EXCEPT in Birmingham. It was horrible there. JK
