RE: Can You Pass Through States with Stay at Home Orders?

Here's an interesting article about how RVs are being used during the crisis. https://tiny.iavian.net/ytqg Sorry, don't know why this is not a clickable link.

RE: Anyone lose a set of keys

OP here. Last time I do something to try to help someone out. Posting here was not the only thing I did. Guess I should have posted a book. Disappointing how many negative people there are.

Anyone lose a set of keys

I dumped at the I95N rest area in Maryland between DC and Baltimore yesterday afternoon. Lying on the ground next to the dump station was a set of keys. If you lost a set, please PM me and I'll get them back to you. Chris

RE: Pennsylvania Route Recommendations

REally depends on whether your leaving from the north East Coast or the mid-Atlantic East Coast. Tolls on the Turnpike are the main issue.

RE: West Virginia Recommendations Big Rig Friendly

Are COE parks open to the public? I've used them in other states than WVa. They're for us as Americans.

RE: Can I park my trailer at Universal Orlando?

When we were at Universal Orlando last spring, parking was in a parking garage. Universal has RV parking for $32/day. No overnight. We're going in March. Will be staying at Ft. Wilderness. For the 2 days at University, trying to decide if I want to pull the toad or take the RV up. https://www.universalorlando.com/web/en/us/plan-your-visit/hours-information/directions-and-parking#parking After much consideration, we've decided not to pull the toad and will use Uber for the 1st time on the days we go to Universal. Wish us luck.

RE: Good RX club WOW, what savings on prescriptions!

I/ve found that using GoodRX and paying cash, I can get my prescriptions lower than my insurance copays. The drug supply system is a huge scam.

RE: Compartment Door Slam Latches

I had this happen to the latch on the door where the propane is after driving to Alaska over lots of road construction. Since the propane tank is open underneath, I think all the fine dirt got in the latch making it difficult to open. I finally forced it open and the stiker broke. Fortunately I had an extra latch when I replaced the unlocking fuel door with a locking latch so I was able to replace it. Because it was open underneath I was able to remove the latch from the backside of the door. Don't know how I could have done this if it were on one of the closed compartments. I should get a spare in case I have a repeat. There are 3 compartments which are open underneath.

RE: Quartzsite show

To anyone going to the show, We went last year and bought a really nice dog leash. I lost it and would love to have another. Unfortunately I can't remember who I got it from (one of the smaller booth vendors). I've googled and searched the list of vendors from last year. I believe they said they were from Idaho. They had other items which were made with braided leather. What made this leash so nice was there were rings woven into the leash are variable places which allowed me to shorten it and easily attach it around a post. So if you're walking around and see them this year, could you either PM me or post their contact info. Enjoy the show - we did last year. Thanks, Chris

RE: I must be getting olde !

Just for fun, ask a teenager what qualifies as a long distance call and how much they think it would cost per minute. :) FWIW, standard shift cars are still available from Honda and Mazda. Not sure about others ... Manual shift cars are theft proof. Young'ens don't know how to operate a stick shift.

RE: Is dash cam evidence allowed in an investigation

I provided my dash cam video of a reckless driver to the investigating officer. I had my laptop in the car, booted it up, installed the SD chip and showed him. He was most appreciative when I gave him a copy. Not sure how it was used - I never heard back or was requested to be a witness.

RE: Is dash cam evidence allowed in an investigation

“Do believe this particular case was settled or in other words we paid the other party off just to be done with it.” What clearer admission of fault is there? You...your company...PAID the other driver. I don't agree. Sometimes it happens - it's a question of total cost. Defend or pay less. I was lucky once with one of my company drivers. He was in an accident with a young lady who partially pulled up on the sidewalk to his right trying to pass. When he was able to turn right, the trailer wheels impacted her car. She was issued a summons and found guilty. 5 months later we were sued. Insuance company wanted to settle. Fortunately I was able to convince them to fight it and we won. Might have cost more to defend than settle - who knows.

RE: Typical problem we all see in RV parks.

There's 2 topics here. First, we don't usually get noise especially snowbirding along with mostly seniors. Mostly national, state parks, etc. Secondly, "warming up" a modern vehicle is about 40 years outdated. Absolutely unnecessary from a mechanical point of view and for temperature a moving vehicle warms up faster. But I guess you can't go around the park preaching that. But the short answer is- No we don't have that problem. I am always self-conscious about disturbing my neoghbors, and new diesels do not need to long warmup periods. I have everything put away, slids closed, and jacks up before I start up. As soon as I get enough air pressure to release the brakes, I am off.

RE: Baltimore area campground

Millersville KOA will likely be the easiest, but the Patapsco State Park is also almost close, not sure how the services are. Congrats on the Daughter new Job - JHU and the Hospital are in different areas - Both are not an easy drive until you understand the traffic. Best of Luck, Agree with Busskipper about traffic. Suspect you will visit your daughter at her home and not at work. May or may not be easier. Also agree with avoiding going over to the Eastern Shore. The Bay Bridge is being rehabilated on the westbound span (maybe I did something wrong when I worked on the original construction in 1971?). Traffic delays are unpredictable. We've stayed Merry Meadows. A little pricey and some unusual rules but very nice place.

RE: Northern Utah and Idaho in 2020

Going from Lowman to Banks, check out the Kirkham Hpt Springs. Depending on your age (like me) sort of tough to get down the hill but worth it. Wear tennis shoes you don't mind getting wet. After enjoying the hot springs, you can jump off the rocks into the cold Payette River. My granddaughters and SIL. BTW - we were in a 36' Class C pulling a fullsize SUV. No problems. https://i.imgur.com/oiojNgKl.jpg
