RE: Algodones. Dental. "molar" city

Been going there for 10 years for cleaning and crowns. Cleaning is $45 and crowns are $175. We are happy with the quality of work too.

RE: Question for those towing an enclosed car hauler...

I don't have an escape door, but I am only about 10 lbs over what my ideal weight should be. I park the suv a few inches off center in the trailer so the door opens a little further than normal. This makes it easier to get in and out of the vehicle. An escape door would make it easier, but if a person isn't quite a bit overweight, it isn't that big of a deal.

RE: No one is heading south?

Highway 95 going through Lake Havasu City, AZ has lots and lots of RV's traveling south. The business's in town have seen a big increase also.

RE: Pre trip routines

When hooking up trailer and connecting lights, chains, tongue lock, etc...if anyone talks to you while doing this, recheck everything again after they have left:)

RE: Slow/ No Cranking

Is it a Chevy/Workhorse chassis? If so, it is probably the starter. They are notorious for cranking slow when they get hot. Replace the starter with the best starter you can find regardless of price(that's what I did) and no more problems with hot start. If it's a Ford, I don't know if they had the same problem.

RE: Should I take the RV or not?

6 days in a spare room at the house or six days in your comfortable RV away from family. ;) To me it's a no brainer. I would take the RV, unless there is a problem with parking it at or near the house. Plus the fact that you don't have to wait in line to use a bathroom and you have your own space and privacy.

RE: Where do you find water

If we need water during our travels, most often we pull into a state park and fill up. Most of their day-use areas have a water spigot. As another poster said, make sure you have a "water thief" so that you can use any type of spigot connection. Other times we have found water fill-ups at truck stops at no charge or a small fee.

RE: Hitch/Receiver Pin

We pull a 10,000 lb. enclosed car trailer and I always wondered about pin capacity. Good to know that they are the same for most applications.

RE: Move to Motorhome

I've never owned a Class C, but I'll make a couple of guesses why people say not to get one too small. It needs to be big enough to have a walk around queen bed as climbing in and out of an overhead bed could get very tiring. Also, larger motorhomes tend to have more storage compartments, larger holding tanks, and fresh water tanks. Actual Class C owners can hopefully give more insight.

RE: Blizzard hits plains states and PNW

Are you goofballs actually arguing about the weather forecasting 131 years ago? That's what I was thinking...lol I just want to get out of central wa before the next snowfall on the passes. You're fine. I'm still asphalt paving in Eastern WA next week and likely in November too. Nosnoqualmie won't be an issue for quite a while yet, much to my chagrin. 10' of snow by next Friday would be Heaven, except for the work thing... Let me hit the road before that 10' of snow gets here...Lol

RE: Headlights blinking randomly

On a lot of cars the CB is in the hlight switch. Had a car that did the same thing. Circuit breaker was in the switch. Switch would get hot and lights would go out for a few seconds and then come back on. This scenario kept repeating. Replacing the switch solved the problem.

RE: Dometic Refrigerator Auto Light

On our Dometic refer's in both rv's, the light is yellow.

RE: First time Eternabond user observations

I've been using Eternabond tape for over 20 years on several motorhomes. I love the stuff. Once it's on, it's on for good and no more seam worries.

RE: Tire cables or chains

I would never put link chains on a motorhome as they could possibly beat the fiberglass to pieces if a link came loose. I have used cable chains and they worked fine with good traction on Oregon pass. Oregon DOT had a check point and gave me the thumbs up. I ran the inside dual onto a 2 by 6, so putting on the cable chains was a piece of cake as there was more than enough clearance to slide the cables under the outside dual.

RE: Sealant, Weatherproof Tape, & Coating; Or Sealant & Coating?

I use all three on my rubber roof. Eternabond works, I'm not familiar with the tape you are considering. If you apply Eternabond properly, it will be a one time repair. I've used Eternabond tape for 20 years around vents and seams on a couple of motorhomes and applied properly, I can say that I've never had a leak anywhere after applying it.

RE: Fall colours in Wa

We drove through Tumwater Canyon on the east end of Steven's Pass this morning and lots of trees are turning orange, red, and yellow now. Only a few campers in the Lake Wenatchee area today, so nice and quiet.

RE: Day 2 Lake Wenatchee * Leavenworth * RR Power Station * Golf

Thanks Camper Jeff and Kelli...the drive through Tumwater canyon was colorful with orange, yellow, red, and green leaves. We may drive through Chumstick to see more of what you have seen. Hope you get good fishing at Hood River.

RE: Day 2 Lake Wenatchee * Leavenworth * RR Power Station * Golf

Looks like you had a good time. We also like Leavenworth and the Lake Wenatchee area. We are heading up there on Monday as we like to wait until the week-enders are gone. We also like the Nason Creek campground. There are several campsites right on the river and we get half price with our senior pass. You're going to Lake Wenatchee but your profile says Lake Chelan. They do each have their features. Must be 40 years since I last played golf in Chelan. Have yourself a great weekend. I'm heading to near Hood River at Trout Lake, WA. To work but also get some great fishing in. Take care... We spend the summers at Lake Chelan but we like a change of scenery every so often and the fall colors should be on display going through Tumwater canyon now, so Lake Wenatchee will be a nice change for us.
