RE: 4000 Onan Microquiet immediate shutdown

We used to try and troubleshoot our generator problems. No more. They get so frustrating and even if we would get it to work, next time. . . no go. When we have a problem now, they go to the nearest Onan Coachcare and we have never been disappointed. They always fix them up. I do know that if they sit with gas in them for too long, they need professional help! Dale

RE: RV trip 14 nights itinerary help

We have owned both motorhomes and travel trailers in the past.  All the RV rentals places in Anchorage will not allow you to tow a car so we are thinking we will rent a truck and trailer trailer (though private owner) so we have a vehicle to get around.  Thought on this please.  Also this is the 2nd attempt at an itinerary.  Should we add/delete anything? Are we staying too long or not long enough in each place? Any driving distances from place to place too long? The only reason we are considering swinging over to Matanuska is because I read on a TA forum that the scenery is beautiful but haven't seen anyone else mention it.  Also considering staying 2 nights instead of 3 in Denali. Day 1 fly into Anchorage, pick up RV, get groceries then drive to Matanuska Glacier. Day 2 Glacier Hike and Zipline Day 3 Drive to Denali National Park - ATV tour in the afternoon Day 4 Shuttle, bus or hike Day 5 Dog sled and more time in the park Day 6 Drive from Denali to Talkeetna - activity in the afternoon Day 7 Drive to Portage - activity in the afternoon Day 8 Drive to Seward - possible afternoon fishing trip? Day 9 Day cruise Day 10 Kenai National Park Day 11 Seward to Homer Day 12 - Bear viewing in Katmai Day 13 Homer to Cooper Landing Day 14 Cooper Landing back to Anchorage We went to Alaska in 2013. First, we took a 22' motorhome. No need for a toad. We could drive wherever we wanted to go. Nice and convenient. Second, do yourself a favor and buy Mike and Terri Church's book: Alaska Camping They are good about telling you what there is to see and how many days you will want to stay. . . what to see, what to skip, etc. Best reference ever. Mike is an Alaska native and Terri moved there after college I think. Info on campgrounds, etc. And they keep things updated on their website. Most of the rental places rent the smaller Class C's and truck campers. Perfect for getting around Alaska. I would never "borrow" someone's rig to take anywhere. Alaska can have some bad roads and I wouldn't want to be responsible for someone else's property. Great trip. Wish we were going back. Dale

RE: Atwood Jacks/Levellers issue

Hope you can get them fixed. Our Atwoods gave up the ghost this spring by breaking the 2 rear jacks while trying to level the coach. Caused the coach to "buck" wildly tossing us up and down in the front seats like rag dolls till I hit the on/off switch. I was able to retract them then and that was the last I used them. We switched out to a Quaddra Big Foot system. So far we are liking them. I do like that now I have a switch to dump the air where before it was done solely by the Levelegs system. Incidentally, we looked all over for new jacks to replace our broken ones and were told by a former Tiffin employee that it was likely the controller that failed and caused the jacks to break. So not only would we have to buy jacks, but a controller. Very hard to find (almost impossible) parts. So bit the bullet and bought a new system. Our warranty plan paid for about half of it though. :-) Dale

RE: Route 35 near Jackson, OH

When traveling that route, we normally spend the night at the Gallia Junior Fairgrounds in Gallipolis, Ohio. FHU, for $20-25. Large campground, grass, but great for overnight. We have also stayed a couple nights at the Chillicothe, Ohio, fairgrounds. About the same price, I think. Dale

RE: Dead microwave

My DH has fixed my Sharp convection twice. Once the turntable motor quit working. He researches on the internet and then finds a YouTube video showing how to fix it. He ordered the motor and fixed it. A couple years later the door latch broke. Again he fixed it. The latch was $4. Still running strong going on 15 years. Dale

RE: Good trip-bad repair shop

I'm interested in what happened. What caused the overheating and what was the eventual fix? And what kind of coach do you have? Dale

RE: Back hurting from bed in travel trailer - need advice please

I picked up a Dynasty Mattress 10GEL from amazon. Was a little leery seeing the price point is pretty low. But have been extremely happy with it. Prefer it over mattress in my house! I have had serious back problems all my adult life. 2 years ago I had extensive surgery and then we got a new Dynasty Mattress from Amazon. It is amazing and I can sleep on it every night with no problem. It is firm enough that when DH moves around or gets up during the night, I never move. Prior to my surgery, however, we slept on cheap Intek air mattresses with a 2 inch foam topper. It was the only thing that would give me relief. The sleep number beds are really cheaply made and so over rated. The cheap air mattresses did the trick for us for 13 years of fulltiming, until I had my surgery. Incidently, my surgery was a great success and I am pain free now for the first time in 46 years. The other thing is what is your base? Is it a platform bed? It should be. . . any kind of sofa bed or dinette, etc., is NEVER going to be comfortable. If your platform is not solid. . . one piece with NO seams, etc., get a sheet of plywood and put it down. I'm like the princess and the pea. If there is one piece of anything under the mattress, I'm going to feel it. Good luck. Dale

RE: Splendid Washer/Dryer

Too many clothes and too much soap are the biggest culprits. I recently did a load and the stretch jeans came out so wrinkled they were unwearable. I put them back in with one other item and rewashed them without any soap. Came out perfectly. Dale

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

The mountains here haven't begun to turn into fall colors yet. With it being so dry we nay just go from summer leaves to no leaves at all, just bare trees ready for winter. I sure hope you get some rain. I have never seen the leaves change colors and was looking forward to it during the Sevierville trip. Burch What I've always been told and it does seem to ring true is that in drought years, there won't be red colors to the leaves. . . only yellow and brown. But rain supposedly makes them turn red.

Leaves are starting to turn here in northern and central Indiana. Not big time, yet, but a few trees. Dale

Glad you are feeling so much better, Richard. It makes a difference to us wives when the DH's are feeling well! Dale

RE: Havent camped in 2 years

Sorry about your back. I was diagnosed with a congenital problem in my back at age 20. Doctor told me no surgery then because I would end up in worse shape and to wait till surgery techniques improved. 46 years later (2 years ago), and many MORE problems, I had surgery. I had tried everything on the books to relieve the pain and problems, but all that didn't work at that point. So I set time out in our fulltiming schedule to have the surgery. Two months later, I was back driving our big rig (I do all the driving, DH navigates). This summer we cleaned out a house where we had stuff stored and I carried boxes, etc., up out of the basement at least 15-20 times a day. Back in great shape now. I decided I didn't want to spend the rest of my life in pain and discomfort and I'm so glad I had the surgery. Physical therapy worked for some time with me. You might try that. Dale

RE: Michelin kaboom! Michelin tire update!

We just replaced all six of our Michelins on our 40' Phaeton Diesel Pusher. Tires were 7 years old. Didn't look bad and probably could have gone another year or maybe longer. We change at 7 years. That's what we had always been told. Never had a blow out or defective tire. Two incidences in 15 years of fulltiming of a nail or sharp object in the tread. Plug and patch on onward we go. Always been happy with the Michelins. Dale

RE: Southern Louisiana in November

Any judge on earth would have tossed that one. Not in Louisiana. He went to fight it. Watched another guy with the same situation plead his case. He had several men in his truck who, when polled by the judge, all said the driver was under the speed limit. Judge slammed his gavel down and said, "Guilty, pay the bailiff." To make matters worse, once he paid his fine and headed out to his truck, someone had stolen his big cooler from the back of his pickup and dumped the contents, food, etc., he had for his charter, in the bed of the truck. He went back into the court and told the bailiff what happened and she told him he was just mad cause he had to pay a fine. We once got a ticket in Louisiana for doing 40 in a 25, which we weren't and was impossible because we had just been stopped at the light in town and were caught between there and the next light, not more than a few feet. The cop was in the donut shop and as we passed by, we saw him running out, donut in hand. We thought he was after the truck in front of us, but noooooo. Out of state motorhomers are apparently a good catch. A relative who works for the attorney general told us to call in and when we did we found out the judge, jury and police chief were all in the same office. May as well pay the fine. While we were sitting on the side of the road with the officer, another big motorhome came around the corner. Mind you, the officer was outside of his car and he flagged that motorhome down. As they slowed down, the woman in the passenger seat opened her window and passed an envelope out to the officer who grabbed it and the coach drove on. Hmmmm. Beware. Dale

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Terry got a good report from his cardiologist today. He is far better than he has been in two years. His kidney function is down a little, but he is on increased diuretics and the doctor said that may be his new normal. Closing on the rental was yesterday, money's in the bank. Whoo hoo! In another ten days we will be leaving Indiana for Virginia, Florida, and eventually Texas. Dale

RE: Southern Louisiana in November

Be careful when you are headed south toward Grand Isle. There are speed traps everywhere. I think it was in Golden Meadow DH's cousin, who ran a fishing charter from Leeville, got a speeding ticket for going 16 in a 15. Dale
