RE: Colorado State Parks closure

The main issue is that they also close all the restrooms and showers as they would be difficult to keep clean under the present situation. Apartments have their own bathrooms.

RE: It's time for a replacement truck

Glad you all were not hurt. Too bad about the Carriage Cameo, they were a good unit.

RE: Flexible PEX hose.

There is flexible hose that is rated for pressure. I have it in my 5th wheel and found replacement hose at Ace Hardware.

RE: You can buy S637 tires here, but install: HAHAHAHA

The only shop around here big enough to pull a trailer to is Les Schwab and I wouldn't use them due to their higher prices for everything. Wish there was a shop nearby to save my aging body. :(

RE: Don't come to Massachusetts

Colorado and Denver have shut down a lot of the same things, including the ski resorts after record snow amounts. It is really sad, but this pandemic is unprecedented.

RE: AAA changes RV towing benefits

Got a notice from G.S. indicating that 5th wheels will not be covered anymore in the standard plan. I will have to move up to one of the Platinum plans which also pertains to motorhomes. Time to shop around.

RE: Roswell NM

Try Midway RV park in Dexter, NM. 575-622-0531. We stayed there last September. It is a few miles south of Roswell. Nothing fancy but it worked for us. And the museum was great, allow as much time as possible 'cause there is a lot of info.

RE: What is your favorite indoor-outdoor thermometer?

Also been using AcuRite but struggling to find a suitable place to mount or velcro the outside receiver for accuracy. I have it in rear bumper now but with heated tanks, the frame actually warms up. Lol Been laying it outside each trip on top of trailer tire. I have a similar unit and mounted the sensor inside the propane cabinet of my trailer. The cabinet is open toward the bottom so it gets a good supply of air but is not exposed to the sun most of the time. And it does not get road spray that would dirty the sensor.

RE: KOA membership

We also use KOA, Good Sam and Passport America. We easily get our investment plus back on all 3 each year. We like staying at KOA and build up points. We built up enough points last year to earn 2 "free" nights at the Bar Harbor/Oceanside KOA in Maine. I also like Passport America, however the campgrounds that accept it have a lot of restrictions. But you can always depend on Good Sam to get $10 off per night pretty much everywhere. We are heading our for a 10 week trip in June. Our first 14 days are, 5 nights in KOA's, 4 nights in Passport America campgrounds and 5 Good Sams. Do you mean 10 percent? $10 would mean the site is $100 a night. That is too much for me.

RE: Windsheld Wipers

Whatever Costco has when they go on sale. Maybe Goodyear? I can't remember exactly. X2 Currently they have a Michelin model that works well for me.

RE: Load Range G Tires

I believe I paid $1200 CDN out the door for the Sailuns and the G614's would have been well North of $2000. That's a considerable amount of money that could be used for travelling. I already pay for an insurance policy on the fiver so having 2 doesn't seem to make a lot of sense. Not sure how your insurance works in the GreatWhiteNorth but down here a claim like that may cause rates to increase. Not usually for a comprehensive (non collision) claim.

RE: I-70 Colorado in April

Also be aware that Colorado has a Traction Law for vehicles traveling through our mountains from October thru May. Basically, if the roads are snow covered and the law is in effect you will need snow tires with adequate tread or chains. If not you cannot proceed or if you get stuck and delay traffic the fines are large.

RE: Medicare ads!!!!!

Anybody sick of seeing Joe Namath hawk those Medicare plans? There's someone who probably doesn't even need Medicare. YES!! :E

RE: Time for new tires?

That's what I would do also. I run tires until I feel them start getting wonky during a heavy rain or can tell they are giving up in the snow. Never cared about date codes. If one wants to obsess themselves with date codes and internet forum foolishness / drama regarding them, they can have at it, enjoy. Then they can run out and buy new. One of the fellows at the tire shop will be more than happy to have the old ones and run them for another mess of miles, after you pay them for disposal. X2 The only tire I ever changed early was a set of Michelins due to sidewall cracking.

RE: directv to dish

Directv notified everyone using SD receivers that this was going to take place. I called DTV and they sent an HD #H-24 box that I continue to use with my G3 dome. Never have received any information from Direct yet as to what they are doing, only info is from here. :E

RE: North from Colorado to Mt Rushmore

I25 from Monument to Castle Rock is a mess as they are widening about 18 miles all at the same time. Won't be finished 'till 2022. I'd avoid it if at all possible. From Colorado Springs I'd suggest US24 to Limon and then north or to Burlington and then north on US385 which goes all the way to the Black Hills area. I've traveled US385 and it is a good road.

RE: Summer fuel at minus 42

The first winter I had my new '99 Ford 7.3l diesel the fuel jelled at -20 degrees as did my friend's '99. We had fueled at the same Conoco station. Both of us had our truck towed to Ford where they just put them inside for a day and they started up. I added an additive and had no further issues. I found out later from a friend in the fuel business that this particular station often bought fuel from sources outside of our area instead of the local refinery. The fuel was not winter blended. Never went there again.

RE: Generator 2000i problems

Maybe a bug built a nest in the vent and when you twisted it rapidly it broke loose.

RE: Pickup driver caught after cops find him hauling 53? trailer

He has some type of "air set up".. there is an airline that runs from the truck bed to the right glad hand on the trailer.. That air line is hooked to the emergency glad hand which fills the trailer's air tank and releases the parking brake. The other glad hand is the service side which applies the brakes when the tractor foot valve or hand valve are applied. Without an air hose there is no way to apply brakes. Pretty hard to stop with only the pickup brakes.

RE: Requesting solution from knowledgeable RV.NET collective

Again, thanks for all replies. Group 29DC at Walmart for $100.00 each with 2 YEAR FREE REPLACEMENT and a pair in parallel will fit. p.s. -- not too concerned about being WET since if I roll the MH pretty sure other issue will arise. Good choice, that is what I have and will begin the third year this spring. I have dry camped for a couple days due to a power failure and they did fine.
