RE: What a bunch of junk.

Airstream looks like the wrong part was pulled, but everything else sounds like workmanship. Given these are new models, and not knowing the associate processes- I wonder if internal QA caught these, a safety inspector did, or the consumer experienced the issue and then the recall came through.

RE: Road Trip! BC to California

Sounds like a great trip! Don't forget to consider roadway elevation as part of the time and show calculations... 800 km would make for dinner long driving days with darkness. Maybe N. Cal makes more sense.

Wichita to Albuquerque suggestions

We don't mind the interstate but I'm curious what sights, and roads, you all might suggest for our upcoming trip. Thanks much.

RE: Dirt

I do prefer the soft, and warmth, from carpet but I hear you on the dirt. There's a lot of dust and flying particles, and since there's very little air filtration, I'd guess that's most of what your floors are collecting. We remove shoes when walking in and that helps with staying clean and clean up.

RE: Full time storage, but far away from home - possible?

That's reassuring; thanks for the quick feedback all. I'll keep an eye for any further input, but will proceed :-)

Full time storage, but far away from home - possible?

We learned about a family that parks in Anchorage but lives in Salt Lake. They fly twice a year, enjoy their vacation, and come back home. Is anyone familiar/ able to offer tips? We'd like to park in the Southwest at a secure storage lot, then go every 3 months or so. In the next 12 months we hope to see NM, NV, AZ, CA. My 2 concerns are that my generator won't get exercised, the gas will get stale. But it's hard to gauge how much of an impact that is on a 20 year old rv - it probably sat around a lot before we bought it 3 years ago. Thanks.

RE: Cell service in Canada

We've had good service with a TMO all inclusive plan- it's often better than in rural areas of the US. PEI to Yukon were fine with international included roaming.

RE: Ready to Live on the Road and Excited

Typo: Visit *non* off-road areas

RE: Ready to Live on the Road and Excited

Without putting a damper on your plans, it seems like you're making a big lifestyle shift- without explaining why. That's your business and right, of course, but it raises an eyebrow for me- like Pianotuna. I suggest smaller steps to downsize and sell between now and then. Do you need the Jeep right away or could you visit dear off-road areas the first year and be fine with the Camaro, for example. I think it's be a blast. Ditto for leaving MI- maybe buy a 2 bdr and use 1 for storage, and then you have a domicile and a home base to park toys that didn't fetch a good price. You can sell the smaller house in a couple years- or use it instead of TN, going south in winter with the RV. There are so many ways to slice it, and plenty of people I've talked to only see 1 option, and then have hindsight.

RE: Water Usage

You'd be surprised how effectively even a trickle of water will do the job- dishes, toothbrushing, sometimes even a quick rinse shower to feel fresh. Our culture of running water at high pressure is changing- some hotels have separate knobs so you can adjust in the tubs nowadays. But we don't have to wait till it's mainstream.

RE: Nova Scotia

Welcome! It's a pretty drive, especially on some of the back roads.

Propane tank integrity test

Had anyone heard of this? It made sense when 1 of the had stations said I needed a current test (within 10 years) - propane tanks are metal so of course their parts could corrode, malfunction, etc. over time. I called Ferrellgas, American, Uhaul, nothing. They said try RV dealers- none of their service departments heard of it for an attached tank, only travel trailers with tanks that come off. I called some repair places and they didn't do it. Is the test something any of you have done, and if so, where? How much, and how long does it take? Appreciate any help.

RE: Alaska Marine Highway

You may be surprised at the cost, that trip sounds like 3-5k. You can enter up to a 30' in their website and get an estimate- we first compared pricing against a hotel/ meal itinerary, and then ultimately decided that would be a separate fly-in trip. Plan your trip around when the eagles will be in Haines, and don't forget a boat tour or two.

RE: Thinking About Nova Scotia/PEI July/Aug 2020

You may catch whales, check in with the captain in Lunenberg, home of the Bluenose- the ship on the dime. We also stopped at Blue Rocks and Peggy's Cove. Cafe Abod in Halifax, and the Lobster Pound in North Sydney are excellent.

RE: East Canada

There's history in these areas: maritime museum is worth taking out a few hours for in Halifax. Also note the shift from French to English as you leave Quebec and go into the Atlantic provinces- this is because of 400 years of history. Marconi and Bell are worth a Google search, both are national historic sites. Don't forget to get off the fast roads to enjoy the drive, but we're seeing more construction than wildlife as we drive through.

RE: Last Post, DW has died

Condolences for everyone's losses- losing dear loved ones is why I own an RV, and try to spend as much time traveling as possible. While you do need money to maintain this expensive hobby, I'm not convinced it's so much more than any other option; not flying, not being at home, and not any other hobby. In fact, you "get what you pay for imho." There's comraderie in this forum from the shared lifestyle and experiences, and so there's no rush to shut down... it's easier to say see you later vs. adios. May you find peace as you navigate the road of life each moment of each day; feel free to DM when you just need a kindred spirit or an ear.

RE: Really scary incident tonight - almost lost my tow!

We almost bottomed out one time, and didn't realize it to later, but the hitch pin must have been the weakest link and it was fine. Fortunately the hitch is adjustable and has 2 pins.... But lesson learned.

RE: New to RVing

I need to attach the pump to the jug with a section of hose but the connector doesn't fit right, so I have to hold it tight to make sure the pump draws from the jug. Then it works fine.

RE: Move to Motorhome

Our 31' has a long section behind the rear tires, and that sing could be why people say they're tough to drive. You do have you watch for it, and you are the length of a semi with a toad behind it, but otherwise it behaves very well and gets 6mpg going down the road at 70mph loaded to 15k lbs. At that length, people opt for a class A to increase storage space, but you'd be surprised how little stuff you need on any given trip. Some good advice on the comments, find what works for you and enjoy
