Battery: AGM vs. Flooded Cell

Our 5er, 2016 Continental Coach, currently has 4 6v Interstate “Maximum” Deep Cycle Batteries. I am planning to replace them, and am considering the GC2 Trojan T-105 w T-2 Technology (flooded cell), and the GC2 Trojan T-105 AGM w C-Max Technology (sealed maintenance free). The obvious differences are ; maintenance free, and the higher cost for the AGM. Has anyone had experience with either or both of these batteries in terms of performance quality on a daily basis, and over time? If yes, is the higher price for the AGM version a good value vs.the (maintenance intensive) flooded cell option?

RE: Texas Hill Country Ideas

While the parks on 281 are nice, there is a lot of road construction between the parks and downtown. The traffic can be horrendous, particularly during rush hours. The same holds true for parks located off I10 between downtown and Boerne. For convenience sake, I’d say to stay either at the KOA or Traveler’s World. Haven’t stayed at the latter, but have read that many find it convenient. We have a 36 ft fifth wheel and had no problems at the KOA. In addition to the previously mentioned activities, the Briscoe Western Art Museum is worth a visit. The boat rides on the river are informative and entertaining. I would recommend Boudro’s, on the river(southwestern food, not necessarily TexMex), as well as Zinc, which is an interesting downtown bar with really good food. You can sit in or outside in either restaurant. Zinc is not on the river but does have an interesting space and is good for lunch. The Pearl is a fun place to visit. On Saturday there is a Farmer’s Market, there are restaurants and shops. The area was the home of the old Pearl Brewery and has been transformed into an entertainment, restaurant and hotel venue. It is fun to visit the Hotel Emma’s lobby. For TexMex, try Mi Tierra. It is touristy, but the food is pretty good. We like El Jarro out on 281 at Bitters. They have live music on Friday and Saturday nights and great Margaritas. If you do a search on this forum you should find a lot more about San Antonio and Fredericksburg.

RE: washer and dryer or combo

While we don’t full time, we travel 4-5 months a year. We had the Splendide washer and vented dryer (side by side) in our DRV, now have Whirlpool stackable, vented washer and dryer in our Continental Coach. The Splendide was OK, but the dryer was 110 and took FOREVER to dry most anything. I much prefer the Whirlpool set I have now, just be sure to investigate how the manufacturer installs the units and that they are securely stacked. I know from doing laundry at our son’s apartment that the single unit that washes and dries takes a really long time to complete a load. Like most others, I would not be without my own.

RE: Campgrounds along or near Hwy 12 in Idaho

Older thread but here's a nice one right on 12. The fee of $9 with full hookups for seniors is a real savings. The camp host was very friendly also. https://www.blm.gov/visit/pink-house-recreation-site. Thanks so much for this info, we didn’t make it to this area last summer as we had planned. It is still on our radar, so I will take a look at this cg. Thank you so much!

RE: Ray and Donna West Free RV Park, Muleshoe, TX

Great info, thank you. We go to Santa Fe fairly often and we always go through Muleshoe. This would be a great overnight stop for us!

RE: 10 days in Michigan

Thank you all so much for all the suggestions, working on getting some reservations now. Hope we can get all our work completed by Friday so we can be on our way. Trekker, we did visit the RV Hall of Fame when we picked up our coach a few years ago. We really enjoyed it!

10 days in Michigan

DH and I are in Elkhart to have some work done on our coach. After finishing, we’d like to see something of Michigan. We have visited The UP and Mackinac Island, albeit briefly. We are interested in the Traverse City area, and I plan to look for some parks there. I realize we could have some problems getting reservations, I didn’t make any as we missed a previous appointment for this work to be done on our coach. Due to a misdiagnosed problem with a slide we had to cancel all the reservations we had made for the previous planned trip. If I can get some good recommendations on beautiful places to stay and things to do, I would appreciate it. We have a 37 ft fifth wheel, high profile so trees can be an issue. Since we have triple axles, we need room to maneuver. We have to be back in Texas by 8/11. Thanks so much for your help.

RE: Campgrounds along or near Hwy 12 in Idaho

Thanks for the info on Hwy 12. I think we are going to give it a try. I am really looking forward to it!

RE: Campgrounds along or near Hwy 12 in Idaho

Thank you all so much, I. Really appreciate all the info. ReneeQ, I will check those websites and Campendium. Have not previously heard of it! DH loves to fish and I have been known to wet a hook, so camping along the Lochsa sounds inviting. How tough a pull is Hwy 12 along that stretch? Should have included that question in my original post.

Campgrounds along or near Hwy 12 in Idaho

DH and I will be going over the Lolo Pass from Missoula and looking for campgrounds near or along Hwy. 12 in late July or early August. I noticed that there are several NFS CGs along the Hwy. However, only two look like they would work for our 38 ft. fiver, Wendover and Wilderness Gateway. Our trailer is 13’4”” tall, we need good area for maneuverability and some open sites. An old Coleman NFS CG directory states that there are both wooded and open sites in both. Does anyone have knowledge of these campgrounds or any privately owned campgrounds that they would recommend along this route between Missoula and Kooskia. Thanks in advance for your help.
