RE: Dual pane windows....

I've had two campers with dual pane windows and none failed. Dual panes reduce condensation, reduce outside noise and provide greater temperature comfort. BUT, dual panes add additional weight to the camper.

RE: TR: The Road to winning a National Championship

Thank you for giving me a look into dressage of which I know little to nothing. Very fascinating - and what a passion! And a "layover barn"? Who would know? The trip looks both beautiful and difficult at times and certainly memorable. When the meter says "29 miles to empty" - just hope the cleaning exhaust filter warning stays off. BTDT Great TR! thanks again

RE: Truck Camper style Camping outside ScottsDale

Scottsdale runs from the urban centers near Phoenix/Mesa all the way to the Desert Foothills up near Carefree. Just outside the north end of Scottsdale is Bartlett Lake. It's a bit remote, especially if you need quick access to things like CVS or Walmart. But it has what you want in the terms of boondocking. A little further is Lake Pleasant. Still further is Wickenburg and the nearby North Ranch (an Escapees club member) and would be precisely what you're looking for. . .but it's a good 90 minutes drive to Scottsdale. Also, there is State Trust lands all over those areas. You need a $20. annual pass (that's for a family, solo passes are a bit cheaper). But the Trust Lands are a bit harder to find because there's no maps showing where they are (to my knowledge).

RE: Dash camera recommendations

Kdlinks - purchased about three years ago - still works and provides a good video. Got it on Ebay but it's available on Amazon. At the time I purchased it, it was recommended by many on the full timers forum.

RE: Anyone going to Quartzite

The rally is on desert and they run out of space? :h I think it becomes a little unwieldy for management - there is a pot luck planned and some other events.

RE: Tire chains needed?

Auto Socks look like they were made for a Prius. LOL Do some research. They have been shown to work on big rig trucks too.

RE: No one is heading south?

Left on Sept 5th to visit New England fall foliage change. Arrived Cave Creek Nov 6. The KOA in Tucumcari, New Mexico reported the usual Snowbird activity for October when we overnighted with them.

RE: Overloaded wheel Breakage

We specifically ordered a KMC wheel with a load rating of 3,640 pounds, but this isn’t what we got.

RE: Route suggestions please!

Organ Pipe NM is said to be hazardous because it is right on the border. That is pure hearsay. A cat in the night couldn't squeeze through there. The border area there and it's protective measures are worth seeing as much as the National Park.

RE: POP vs IMAP..should be easy but..

IMAP: email is left on the server. If you delete an email (using any device) then that email is gone for good. POP: email is downloaded to the your machine - BUT only that one machine. AND the email is left on the server so that it can be downloaded again by another machine. Your email client (such as Thunderbird) can be set to leave the POP email on the server forever, or, to delete the email after a set certain period of time. Warning: if you use POP and leave email on the server without a time limit, AND then use a new machine (such as a laptop) to download emails - it will retrieve all emails left on that server from the beginning of time. You might like POP if you don't have a firm grasp on it.

RE: Oil changes en-route with camper on truck?

Was it done via a pit....or a lift ? They have lifts - no pits. I did not stay to watch. The lifts look wimpy - I suspect that they did it the old fashion way and slid under the truck. NRailer: Thanks. Good information. The truck is at max: 14,000 pounds and the tow vehicle is 5,500 pounds. Ambient temperatures have been mild but it's run a lot of mountains. Severe duty is my guess. Walmart offers your choice of oils. Rotella was one of them and recommended by the mechanic. They used a Fram oil filter which I will remove as soon as possible.

RE: Oil changes en-route with camper on truck?

Howdy! Just had mine done at Walmart. Shell Rotella T6, filter and lube $80.00. In and out in about 30 minutes. “Happy Trails” Chiefneon They put $75 worth of juice and parts (on sale) into your truck for $80? I’ll take everything I own there! Yes, that's about the cost of it. (Taxes vary by state)

RE: Oil changes en-route with camper on truck?

Thanks. I had Walmart do mine today. Quick and easy. I have not inspected their work. There were no oil leaks prior to today. I will slide under the truck tomorrow if it's not too freezing cold and take a look.

RE: Oil changes en-route with camper on truck?

How many miles on current change, and what is your change interval? Over 5,000 and the computer notification was "Change oil soon" -I kept driving it and it now reads "Change oil now" Called around and found a Walmart that does RV's. Will try them today. Blue Ridge Mountains are next.

Oil changes en-route with camper on truck?

Currently in need of an diesel oil change while en-route. Some service centers can't handle the weight of the truck with camper on. They need the camper dis-mounted from the truck. Any recommendations on getting a good reliable service company to do and oil change without having to dis-mount the camper would be appreciated.

RE: Roadmaster Rear Anti Sway Bar on 2017-2019 SuperDuty

Huge difference in my Rams sway after installing the roadmaster. great upgrade. Thanks all for the info. I ordered it a few monutes ago and will report the results in a few weeks. Thanks Bradw Which diameter did you get? Did you call them first? TC Magazine reported on their Roadmaster sway bar a few months ago - big improvement but they had one installed and then had to upgrade to a slightly larger diameter. I guess it depends on the camper weight and height.

Acadia NP (Portland) to Shenandoa NP - avoiding NYC?

We're heading to Shenandoa NP, leaving from Portland, ME My mapping software takes us right through NY city! I'd like to arrive in Shenandoa still alive. What routes are better for avoiding the busy city areas?
