RE: starlink in the far north

Id love his speeds of 25M. I'm in the middle of Anchorage and can't get 10M if I'm lucky. Last Thursday I could only get 1.4M when trying to watch Thursday night football on Prime. So much for that. I've had my order in for Starlink for 18 monthes and nothing yet. Bill

RE: Will I regret this truck?

I've had a 3/4T 4X4 CC with an 8' bed for 30 years as my only vehicle and will probably have one until I die.............. Though, I will move to an F450 or F550 next summer to pull my heavier loads. Bill

RE: Alaska - 2023

First item, don't call it the AL-Can. It is the Alaska Highway. You will be pushing a lot even for four months. As earlier post suggests delete lower 48. Only place you may need reservations is Denali area. There are many campgrounds that are open later in year plus lots of places to spend the night. It's the Alcan to those of use who have been in Alaska for a long time. Bill

RE: Storing trailer out of state a campground storage

We live in Alaska and our DP hasn't been home in 12 years. We generally prefer to leave it on the west coast, but it's been left all over the US. We generally try to pick a spot Alaska Airlines flies in and out of. The only time we had a worry was when the Mississippi was flooding the area where we left it. Bill

RE: Velvac mirror removal

On my Velvacs, there's a small cap that needs to be removed with a flat tip screw driver. Then inside of it is a set screw requiring an Allen wrench. Take the set screw out and the mirror will lift out. Bill

RE: Where to get Replacement Wheel Bearings -Old Camper

Pull apart one of the others that's still in good shape and look for the part numbers. Then, order them from this guy: Dave Stark 800/409.3632 760.799.2091 - you can send texts to this number 75090 St. Charles Place, Suite B Palm Desert, CA 92211 He has fast service and very good prices. He ships in USPS flat rate boxes which also saves money. He does bearings and seals. Bill

RE: Store 5er in Alaska

We stored ours at either Big Lake or in Fbks. Never covered it and didn't take the batteries out. Just make sure they're charged and disconnect the negative battery terminals - our batteries last 7 or 8 years. Bill

RE: Any issues having slides on both sides?

We don't have any problems with multiple slides on our DP. Bill

RE: Gas Class A

The reasons I have a DP - items you don't get on gasser 1. The engine is in the rear so it's a lot quieter up front when driving 2. With the engine in the rear, the generator is up front so it's a lot quieter in the rear bedroom if you need to run it at night 3. With the engine in the rear, you don't have to crawl over the engine to get to the driver's seat 4. The seats are generally more comfortable in a DP 5. Air brakes 6. The retarder to help slow you down Bill

RE: Considering first DP - any advice?

Here's something that's mandatory for me. When you bring out the frontroom slide, do the storage compartments come out with it? Mine do. If they don't, it's a real PITA to get into the storage compartments that are back under the slide outs. Bill

RE: Considering first DP - any advice?

Make sure you can get into things like the refer, bathroom and the sink while the slides are closed. Bill

RE: Vinegar Treatment

We used vinegar to clean ours when we got the MH. It seemed to do a good job. To do it right, when flushing you need one of those plastic wands with a 90 deg tip on the end to send the water to the ends of the tank so the **** gets flushed out. Secondly - don't drain the vinegar out onto your grass.............. Third - we bought a two filter system, to use with the filter in the MH giving us three filters. Even in the southwest we don't have a problem calcium, or anything leaving spots on anything anymore. It uses a std sediment filter, a charcoal filter and at the moment I don't remember what the third filter is. Bill

RE: Question for those with an Auxiliary diesel fuel tank

My bed tank is not plumbed in, it has a hand pump on it with a very good filter. If I had to change the truck filter, I'd pump fuel from the tank through the tank filter. I use a hand pump on my bed tank because I have to remove it a couple of times a year to get other loads in like I'm doing today. I have a second matching tank that I pump the fuel into. If I had a bed tank that was plumbed in, I would have a filter on it. Bill

RE: Using a Cpap in my AF 27-5

Your Cpap normally runs off of 110VAC. You should have 110VAC outlets in the bedroom. I'm assuming your 5th has batteries and a converter to supply 110VAC? You can buy adapters to run them off ov 12VDC from Amazon, but there's no reason for you to do that. And no, the USB outlets do not have enough power. Your power supply for the Cpap should use 95 to 100 watts. Bill

RE: Known pros/cons these brands?

I prefer aluminum sided trailers for several reasons which includes not fading like the fiberglass trailers. My preferred mfg is Nash / Arctic Fox. Bill

RE: Where to store through winter without much snow?

In your search for a place with little snow, don't store it in a place will lots of rain like eastern Oregon or Washington. We came back to an RV full of mold. Bill
