RE: US-2 Road Condition in Montana

Last July we took US 2 from Wisconsin to Shelby, Montana. It was fine, EXCEPT a little east of Shelby was major construction for about 10 miles. Down to dirt. I imagine they've made a lot of progress since then, but I have no idea. Nor do I know if they started another section. JK We did the same last year, Wisconsin to Alaska. The construction on Hwy 2 is a bit inconvenient. Wait till you get near and into Alaska if you want to complain about roads and construction.

RE: Weber Q1200 Question

On our Q1200 we removed the regulator and put on the quick disconnect to work with the camper. Then we put a quick disconnect on the regulator, to be able to put the regulator back on the grill. That way we can still use the grill if we want to tailgate at a baseball or football game.

RE: Camp Reservations

Last year for our Alaska trip we made four reservations at places where we wanted to be at certain times. Otherwise we winged it, or made reservations a day or two at a time as we moved along.

RE: Can't get my Weber grill to cook quickly, Low flame

This is a response from Weber regarding low heat output: From Weber: "Thank you for your email. I'm sorry to hear your grill is giving you problems. There could be several issues that could cause this sort of problem. Let's try to fix the problem with the follow suggestions. Do you preheat the grill with the lid up or down? If you grill with the lid down there is a possibility that you have inadvertently triggered the safety device in the adapter hose. This safety device is designed to detect leaks. If the grill is leaking, it will restrict gas flow to prevent a fire. When the gas is restricted, the grill will only reach about 250 degrees. This safety device can be inadvertently triggered if the grill is turned on too quickly. To reset the gas safety device: Open the barbecue lid. 1. Close the LP tank valve. 2. Turn your burner control knob to the OFF position. 3. Wait at least 5 minutes if the barbecue had been lit, then 4. Disconnect the gas source 5. Turn your burner control knob to the HIGH position. 6. Wait at least 2 minutes, and then turn the burner control knob to the OFF position. 7. Re-connect the gas source The grill was designed for the small, disposable tanks. If you choose to use an adapter hose for the larger propane tanks, there are some simple rules to follow to ensure that the grill works properly. Please follow this procedure every time you turn the grill on and off. Re-lighting the barbecue: 1. Open the barbecue lid. 2. Open the LP tank valve all the way and wait 1 minute. 3. With the lid open, turn the burner control knob to the HIGH position. 4. Ignite the grill by pushing the crossover ignition button. 5. Close the barbecue lid. 6. The barbecue should reach 500 to 550 degrees in 10-15 minutes. When you are done grilling: 1. Turn all burner control knobs to the OFF position 2. Turn off the LP tank valve last. The tank should be turned off after EVERY grill use.

RE: Safety issue ????

I did exactly the same thing. However, I also bought a hose with a propane regulator built in so I can still use a 20# (or disposable) propane bottle if I so desire. One extra hose to carry doesn't take up much room. https://i5.walmartimages.com/asr/4cfd4312-e29b-4a1e-b91d-5b5057ad3a7e_1.95720ea4e440302168af75cc4aaf9b4a.jpeg?odnHeight=450&odnWidth=450&odnBg=FFFFFF width=320 Funny. I lent out my grill yesterday and the recipient didn't have a quick connect. I do have a little pig tail for a quick connect to small green bottle. But I was surprised at how low flow it was and how little the flame was vs. when it's hooked up to my camper. I might look at the adapter you have. I carry a little 11 lb. bottle that could be used instead of the little green ones.

RE: Grill

Weber Q. We connect ours to the quick connect on our camper. You need to remove the regulator on the grill, and install a quick connect. It is a simple conversion. Do some searching on this forum, lots of good information. We also added quick connects to the regulator, so we can still use the frill with the disposable cans.

RE: recliner chairs for 5th wheel

We also used a LazyBoy love seat in our camper. Look for their Pinnacle line of products, a little smaller and with wallhugger feature. We didn't go with the electric recline feature because we often camp without electric.

RE: Arctic Fox camper electrical issue

I cannot, I'm having my own problem. But I suggest joining the NROA AF owner forum. It is a semi PITA to join you have to email the owner, but there are directions at that address. Yeah, but there is a TON of good Arctic Fox information there.

RE: Skagway

We took the train from Carcross to Skagway. Thought it was kind of strange that we had to go through customs on the way their & on the way back while on the train. But, I guess that happens when you cross the border a couple times. Of course Skagway is a tourist town, that is where all the tourists go. I didn't think it was over crowded, we had a nice time there.

RE: Norcold hinge

I did the preemptive step and did the hinge replacement before a catastrophic failure. Used this.. The frig opens and closes better with the new hinge.

RE: Forecast of minus 60 in mid-west.

3. Media fact checking does not get the desired affect if events cannot be sensationalized Pick your topic. Pick your news channel. Pick your politics (pretty much the same as picking which news channel). That statement is the one consistent truth about all of them! Truth be told, I shut off the news when we went on vacation last summer, and I have kept them off. No TV news, no print news, no Internet news. My personal stress level is down significantly since I tuned them out. If something major happens, I'll hear about it - for example this forum thread tells me the upper Midwest is under a cold snap. -Eric I agree there is very little fact checking these days. Everyone wants to be the first to break a story. I prefer to let these stories ferment for a few days before getting interested in the latest breaking story.

RE: Forecast of minus 60 in mid-west.

This cold weather we're having in Wisconsin is a once in a lifetime cold spell. Funny thing is that I can remember probably another 5 or 6 of these once in a lifetime events???????

RE: Pay for RV Show?

We went to RV show yesterday in Green Bay. Admission was free with a donation of nonperishable food for the local feed pantry. Normal admission is $9. We did have to pay to park $7 in Lambeau Field parking lot.

RE: RV Printer

A laser printer, like a Brother will work perfectly, not too large, low priced, and good quality. Plus no ink to dry out. I've had a couple Brother laser printers and have been very happy with them. I agree with this - the laser printers use dry toner - which lasts an incredibly-long time and can't dry out. It's what we put in our snowbird condo, after having to replace barely-used ink cartridges each season simply because they dried out. We've been using a Brother laser printer for three years now. Our printer cost about $90, and does double sided printing. Got tired of the cartridges drying out on the bubble jet printers.

RE: US 2 from Mi to Mn.

Check out Pattison State Park, near Superior WI. That park and several others close by have many waterfalls, easy hiking to the falls.

RE: Facing a conundrum, what to do?

We previously had a Forest River and a Keystone built 5ers. When looking for our retirement 5er we discovered the Arctic Fox 5ers. After comparing the specifications Arctic Foxes to other brands, it looked like the AFs would work for us. Only problem was that there were very few to look at, whether you wanted new or used. We did find a new 27-5L, which is the model we wanted. We drove four hours to look at the camper. We were impressed with how it looked and felt compared to our other 5ers. Our AF was expensive but has been very reliable for the last 5 years, hopefully will be for the next 5 years. We don't full time but have been on many very long trips. From Wisconsin to Maine & back, to Texas & back, to California & back, to Alaska and back, and many shorter trips. We have spent 3+ months at a time in or camper. Getting ready for a few more trips summer. We also volunteer workcamp at a state park for a month each summer.

RE: Wi Fi Booster

We've had really good results using the Alfa system from TechnoRV (about $125). We've been using it for about 3 years now. It really helps pull in weak signals, but as others have mentioned, it won't help speed up a bogged down campground wifi. https://www.technorv.com/wifi-desktop-booster-kit/ We've been using the Alfa system for years. Works great, when the available signal is worth boosting.
