RE: Star Trek Themed Trip

Roswell UFO festival is out of this world. Star Trek is always a main attraction.

RE: Campgrounds along US St 36 in Kansas

Thanks for all the help. Tomorrow I'm going to add them to my map then figure my distances. I only run between 150 to 200 miles per day an see what works. Being retired makes our cross country trips much easier. Again Thanks. DW and I really enjoyed the blog photos. We will be sure to say Hello to Mat and Kitty or you when we visit the Long Branch!!!!

RE: Campgrounds along US St 36 in Kansas

Wilson Lake SP and Minooka look good. I can head south on Rt 281 from Rt 36. As for the harvest, I'll make up a plan to work my way south and use roads like Rt 50 or Rt 400. I'm coming from the east so I have a lot of options. Boondocking is always on my table too. The two things I try to avoid are the interstates highways and big cities. We're not in any rush. Have 3 or 4 months planned for this trip. Thanks, as always I appreciate your suggestions.

Campgrounds along US St 36 in Kansas

We are going to be running along RT 36 in Kansas enoute the Mesa Verde area. At some point we are going to turn south to visit Dodge City for a couple of days. I've been checking out campgrounds along the way ,both public and private, trying to stay within 10 miles or so from this route. I found some that seem ok but I'm wondering what your favorite campgrounds are along this road. We only really need (would like) is electric. We will be traveling in our 28ft class C with a toad and be in this area mid July this summer.

Reserve America "Rainy Day" refunds

I just received an email from Reserve America promoting their new "Rainy Day Refund" program. For a small fee you can have your daily campsite rental fee refunded If it rains for all or portions of the day you have reserved. Apparently a company named Sensible Weather will determine what portion of your camp day had weather that stopped you from enjoying outside activities and refund that amount. I emailed Sensible Weather and asked if I was on day 3 of a 5 day stay, and it rained, would I have to leave for the day and return the next day if it was nice in order to get a refund. The reply said no, I could stay and would be refunded for the portion of the day that outside activities were hindered. I'm going to all Reserve America tomorrow to see if this is a scam or an authorised offer. Oh in my case it would cost $2.69 per day to protect the 5 days in mid May I have reserved, through Reserve America at Salisbury State beach campground in Salisbury Ma. Apparently the cost of this " protection" varies by time of the year and location the reservation is made. Now this is my current understanding of how this thing is supposed to work, not exactly how it is done, if it is done at all. Has anybody else received this email?

RE: 1/2 Inch Drive Corded or Battery Impact Wrench

As always great feedback. I did some searches and I bought a VTEC 1/2 inch drive brushless wrench. Comes with 2 21 volt 4 amp lithium ion batteries, and a charger. It seems to have the most bang for the buck. Bought it on Amazon for $129.00.I don't have any other battery operated tools,except for my cordless drill so at the moment I'm not worried about battery compatibility. Thanks again.

1/2 Inch Drive Corded or Battery Impact Wrench

Primary use would be to change a flat tire when I'm on the road. If I get a corded wrench I would need to start the generator to use it. I would also need an extension cord. If I get a battery operated wrench all I need to do is make sure the battery is charged. Corded Pros: less expensive, takes up less room and I think it would more powerful than a battery operated gun. Cons: need to have the generator running to use. Battery: Pros: ready for immediate use. Cons: takes up a little more storage space, must be charged to use, cost more and this is just a guess, doesn't have the same power as a corded gun. My current set up is a 3ft length of 1 1/2 pipe and a 3/4 inch breaker bar which will work fine but I'd like to simplify my approach. As always your opinions are valued.

RE: 1" to 3/8" thread adapter?

Have your friendly neighborhood welder weld a flat washer to one side of a 3/8 nut then weld that to one side of the 1" nut. Used a fender 3/8 fender washer if needed. Might work.

RE: Help me plan my trip! North Dakota (TRNP) & Minnesota (VNP)

An interesting day trip when in the Medora ND area is the "Enchanted Highway" between Gladstone ND and Regent ND. Huge metal sculptures along the side of the road. Our grand children loved them. DW and I did too!

RE: UP with hookups

This last summer we were running the "Great River Road" and stayed at the "Mississippi Palasidades State Park" in Savanna Il. $15 per night with electric only. Water and dump station at the entrance. Nice place. Next night we stayed at the COE Blackhawk Campground in De Soto Wi. $13 per night with the America the Beautiful pass. Again electric only with water and dump station at the entrance. Also a nice place.

RE: Water pressure regulator

I have always used a water pressure regulator. I also carry 2 types. The preset straight through Valterra.$10 or so on Amazon, and the Twinkle Star adjustable pressure gauge also avaivable on Amazon for $25.00. We have stayed in RV parks who's water pressure was so high that they wouldn't let you hook up to their water unless you had a pressure regulator.

RE: Northwest coast of U.S.

So many great suggestions. One of our favorites is Cape Blanco State Park in Port Orford Oregon. A short walking trail leads to a huge, long beautiful beach.

RE: Twin Falls ID to Las Vegas NV Advice

Just ran Rt 93 from Twin Falls to Las Vegas 3 weeks ago. We stopped for a night in Jackpot at the Spanish Gardens RV park and at the KOA in Ely. Both were good campgrounds. As mentioned RT 93 is about 40 miles longer but there is very little traffic and you pick up I-15 just north of Las Vegas. Good road conditions and scenery. We topped off our fuel in Caliente. We enjoyed the ride in our 26ft class C RV no tow.

RE: Passenger Side Seat Arm Rest

Got it. There is a small pin that acts as a lock and it became detached from the mount. I was able to find it and press it back into the mount. And all's well. We still have another month or so on the road and one of the last things I need is anything to happen to that seat!!!!

Passenger Side Seat Arm Rest

So DW lowers the arm rest and the thing pops out of the back rest and falls on the floor. The thing has a pin that attaches it to the seat,but when I tried to put it back in place there isn't anything to secure it too. Has anyone had this happen. I guess an auto body shop might know. On day 45 of our trip and knock on wood this is the only problem...So Far.... 2020 Ford E450 standard equipment.

RE: Florida Rt. 98

Thanks for the ideas. I use RV-LIFE campground reviews, Google, RVParky and Campedium. I'm going to try the planner that Pianotuna suggested too. I was looking for members personal favorites, however after looking at the nightly site fees, I might camp inland and day trip the coast. The Rock Crusher Canyon looks just right. You folks are great. As always Thanks.

Florida Rt. 98

We are going to be heading east soon to Tampa from Las Vegas soon. I'm in the planning stage. Looking at the map I'm thinking of jumping on to Florida Rt 98 and running the coast south. I'm thinking Rt98 from Pensacola to Crystal River or so. I thought I saw some campground suggestions here in the past but I can't find them. I'm checking out RV life Campground Reviews, but I'm wondering what campgrounds you folks have used and enjoyed. Also any side trips that are interesting. We like ocean views. 26ft Class C no tow.

RE: Las Vegas Nevada to Tampa Florida

Just arrived in Las Vegas Yesterday. I'm going to work my way South at Jackson and Hattiesburg to I-10 but I'm thinking I'll pickup Fla Rt 98 south of Pensacola and run that for a while. I read there are some very nice campgrounds along that road. As always thanks for the suggestions they helped me a lot!!
