US 95 Fallon, NV. and Schurz, NV April 19-29, 2021

U.S. 95 will be closed between Fallon, Nevada and Schurz, Nevada Nevada April 19-29, 2021 as the Nevada Department of Transportation reconstructs a section of highway. • Between 7a.m. April 19 and 7a.m. April 29, U.S. 95 will be closed between the Fallon landfill (one and a half miles south of Top Gun Raceway) and the rodeo grounds north of Schurz as crews reconstruct a section of highway. • As the highway opens on April 29 through approximately May 9, traffic delays of up to 30 minutes will be in place as pilot cars detour alternating directions of traffic through the work zone and crews finalize reconstruction. Nearly one dozen electronic highway message signs will be placed across the region advising drivers of the closure. Motorists are advised to use alternate highways and plan additional travel time while detouring the closure. The road work schedule is subject to change based on weather and other factors. Crews will work 24-7 during the closure to excavate 10 feet of highway, and reinforce and compact a 2,000-foot section of the highway base before repaving. The reconstruction will help reinforce the deteriorating roadway base to provide a smoother and safer drive for motorists. Further project information is available at dot.nv.gov

RE: Flat Towing New Ford Ranger Behind Class C

I towed a 04 Jeep Grand Cherokee behind two different v10 class C's 25' & 29' between 2005 and 2012 without any problems. It did slow me down when pulling a grade, more then the 2013 CRV I now tow. Always used brake buddy when towing again without any problems if I remember to to do the set up procedures correct. If I needed a new toad I would look at the Ford Rangers.

RE: Carson City, NV

We stayed there many years ago before casino changed owners & names, would stay again. There is also a bigger private RV park south on 395 outside the city if you can't get in in Carson City or a State Park in Dayton east of Carson City on hwy 50.

RE: Toyota motor homes

They want $1000. for every year it is old. They are looking for someone with more money than smarts. I watch RV's listed on craigslist in our area and can't believe the prices people are asking for old old RV's.

RE: Missing Florida Sun in Seattle

Morro Bay on the central CA coast. We like the small RV park on Main street. Cypress RV & Mobilehome Park. 1121 Main St 93442 (805) 772-2515. Brookings Oregon isn't too bad in winter, very close to CA/OR line.

RE: Reflectix on window, long-term?

I have used it for more than 6 years in the window of the overhead bunk,to keep the heat down and keep from sun bleaching the curtains,it faces east when stored here at home. There has not been any downside to this or any problems. I also use it in the rear and side windows while stored here at home and also camping when needed. The nice thing I like about it over the solid,which I tried,if you want to see out all you have to do is take it down and roll it up for easy storage. Not so on the solid boards,always a storage problem,I found it was a real pain. Same here, only problem I know of is if you have dual pane windows. My local glass company said not to use it on dual pane home windows. He said they get a lot of business from fixing dual pane home windows because of this causing heat build up. I took it out of the few dual pane home I was using it in.

RE: Swapping out my jackknife sofa for recliners

I did much the same thing except I used the seat belts. Took out the male ended seat belts and used two female belts on both far sides of the Lazy-boys and used a ratchet strap to bring them together tight. This is the second MH I've done this and works well as long as you remember to fasten them before traveling. It dose make the chairs not usable while traveling.

RE: 24 ft ClassC MH downsides

Gjac, those sound like good reasons to me. The picture of the Itasca Spirit is the same model 24v I have in Winnebago. If the DW is not happy with the RV you won't be using it much. I guess I should be glad I still don't have my 1990 Superchief on a P30 chassis. I do like the fact class C's have driver & passenger doors and air bags. One thing the most of the newer models that have the corner bed they have reduced the width of the bed to make the bathroom a little bigger, my is a short queen 60" wide I think 75" long. Dick

RE: 24 ft ClassC MH downsides

I have a 24' class c and many times thought I would like to have a 32' class a again. Why do you want a 24' class c? My favorite motorhome was new 1990 Winnebago Superchief class A. Loved camping in it and enjoying the view thru the big front windshield. Many times I have wondered why I sold it and purchased a 5th wheel. Now I have a class c. If your staying with a gas class c you not going to see much MPG improvement. I also thought with the 24' class c I would not want a toad, went without one for awhile and didn't like not having one. Don't jump into downsizing. Dick

RE: I'm buying one (surprise)

Re radio there is a switch on the lower dash near drivers door that changes radio operation from either engine battery or coach battery try starting engine and placing switch to engine battery to see if radio works. Maybe the coach battery is dead? My 2006 Winnebago Chalet is the same as your 2005 Itasca Spirit or Winnebago Minnie. The price seems good to me if their are no major problems. Regarding the generator, if it has not run in a long time the carb is gummed up or like a previous post low on gas, I run my gen every 30 days for about an hour with a load. Let us know what you end up doing. Welcome to the RV owners world. Dick

RE: brake buddy

my receiver keep giving me false alerts so stopped using it. I can feel it if my 16 year old classic brake buddy engages the toad brakes. I also set the BB at 2 as I really only want to apply the brakes in a panic stop.
