RE: Vogel state park

If you use US-19/129 up from the south you will encounter significant grades crossing Blood Mountain just south of the park. Better would be I-575/GA-515 north out of Marietta GA, and US-19 south from Blairsville.

RE: Chattanooga TN to Talona Ridge RV Resort Ellijay, Ga.

That's a 1 lane 13'7" railroad underpass. Not a big deal, just be sure of your height.

RE: Discoverer AT3 XLT

Batteries as noted, are made by 3-5 manufactures here in NA. Choose poison by where you can get warrenty easy enough etc. Marty That great deal you got 2 years ago isn't, when your 700 miles away from home with a dead off brand battery.

RE: Theoretical heights.

Unnecessary, but this is theoretical, I don't have a unit, but am planning a build and want to know if my theoretical numbers make sense. If you thinking of building a trailer, you need to look at this thread. BoonHauler BoonHauler was a member here but hasn't posted in years. From what I remember reading the build thread he really did it right. Took a good while but really looked good when he was done.

RE: I-75 at Chattanooga

Sorry to hijack this thread, but I could use some help from the Chatt locals please. We will be going to Cloudland SP in early June, coming from Boone, NC area. We're pulling a 36ft 5th wheel with a dually. Google maps says to take IHs 75 to 24 to 59 and exit to hwy 136. It looks like that takes you over a pretty good pass. Is this advisable with camper? Anyone have a better route? Thanks so much!! Mark That is the best way, traffic on I-24 will suck. But you will see much worse grades coming out of Boone and up GA-136 to the park, than on the interstate For the OP. Construction is done. I-75 straight thru usually isn't to bad. Most backups on I-75 are from I-24 west. Stay out of the right lane as you approach the area, unless you are going west on I-24. Left 3 lanes are I-75, I-24 exits to the right. This is especially true north bound.

RE: GM buying back 6.6L Duramax

Howdy! Hell I have a 2018 Chevrolet 3500 LTZ Duramax 6.6 and from day one the engine bock heater was recalled. Been replaced once. Shortly after that it was recalled again. Every time I ask the dealership they state there’s no replacement available. I had a long conversation with GM costumer service and they only stated the same thing “NO FIX AT THIS TIME”. My only response was “THATS NO WHAT I PAID FOR”. Still waiting! If they want to buy this thing back they can have it! “Happy Trails” Chiefneon Chief I'm in the same boat, but I did get a letter from GM saying that parts are now available. Going in next week. I have no desire to be anywhere that I need that block heater, but I want what I paid for.

RE: Flying J / RV Lanes

You are aware that Flying j fuel prices are higher than other stations! I just completed a trip through 3 states. The Pilot/Flying Js I stopped at or passed were the same and a few were cheaper as any other in the same area. For gas they are competitive, diesel not so much.

RE: Do you always have to pay inside at Truck stops?

First to the OP's question, sometimes your card will read. As to being trapped, well the last Loves I got DEF in I had to back out of. Because the driver ahead was still MIA after I went in paid for and pumped my DEF.

RE: trailer wheel weight rating/compared to tire psi rating?

Dexter 6 lug on 5.5 are rated for 2860. Their 16" wheels were what I used when we upgraded from the stock 15" on the last trailer.

RE: Towing performance - F150 vs F250

By the time you add the heavy tow and payload to a 150, it is as much as a F250. The 250 with the bigger brakes, axles, stiffer frame, and pretty much heavier duty everything will be a much better option. The new 7.3l gas engine is a really good choice for that weight. This is so true. It's not that you can't get a F-150 that will do the job, you can. But any F-250 will, and likely do it better.

RE: Hope this is OK for this forum - DEF question

I quit using the jugs and fill with DEF from a gas style pump at the fuel station. It's cheaper, but more importanly there is no dripping or spilling. Once from the jug, it's been bulk from the pump ever since that first time!

RE: Dumb mistake

Pour it into a clean 5 gallon bucket. Let it set for a day. Siphon 4-1/2 gallons of fuel off the top. X2

RE: I-75 at Chattanooga

It meets Federal guidelines which don't allow left exits. It's better for the I-75 thru traffic, but the interface with I-24 is not. It's well marked, but there are obviously people not looking, or following old GPS units. I do not think the next phase will help either, it's just adding more lanes that don't really go anywhere, more parking. It does not address the root problem which is 6 miles west, the 4 lanes from exit 178 US-27 north to exit 167 I-59 south. TDOT needs to add 2 more lanes each way for the 11 miles to I-59.

RE: I-75 at Chattanooga

I-75-thru traffic isn't that bad. I would stay over to the left for a few miles. The right lane slows with people trying to cut over to I-24 at the last minute, and coming off I-24. I-24 is a total cluster!

RE: MI to FL

I don't think 27 around Atlanta would be that tough. Like any other US highway, just take your time and enjoy the ride. Same goes for avoiding Cinti (I know what you mean about this city!). Remember, the US highways were the main roads pre-interstates, no none of them are really tough or treacherous, IMO. No the road isn't bad. But you are going to add at least 50 miles, and at least an hour. Of course you can lose that hour,or more in Atlanta. Someone had recommended I take US27 to avoid Atlanta. Best I can see, that looks like a tough route. Most times I just go thru, but some time take US-27. If your going to the panhandle, then US-27 makes a lot of sense. Not so much if going to the east side. And even then most time we leave home early enough that we still go thru Atlanta, picking US-27 up in Columbus. Coming home I'm later and much more likely to run US-27 up to Rome. If you want to try US-27, get off I-75 at either exit 312 or 306. Exit 312 is GA-53 and will take you west to Rome GA. Exit 306 is GA-140 and will take you west to GA-53. I like GA-140 as GA-53 is a lot of stop and go through Calhoun. But GA-140 has been under construction, making it 4 lane. Take GA-1 Loop around Rome, it’s the 1st light coming into Rome. When you get to US-411 take a right, and stay on the 4 lane. 411 & 27 will split a few miles south of Rome. Carrollton GA; you just might as well go straight thru. At LaGrange take a left onto the Davis Rd Bypass around to the LaGrange mall. Left on GA-109 to I-85 north. Go north to I-185 to the next exit I-185 south toward Columbus GA Columbus stay on I-185 to exit 1A, US-27 south. I find that Columbus is a good fuel stop, and get diesel at the Circle K at 2525 Airport Thruway. This is the Circle K on the left (there is also one on the right, no diesel) as you come from I-185. They have a set of diesel only pumps up on the right side of the store, fuel and exit around the store. They don’t have card readers in these pumps. There a diesel pump on the outside island that does, if you can get to it. US-27 & US-280 cut thru FT Benning, and will split not long after you leave the base. US-280 will go thru Plains & Americus getting to I-75 at Cordele. US-27 crosses US-82 40 miles south Cuthbert GA. It will go thru Albany GA and get to I-75 at Tifton. Way down US-84 runs from Bainbridge GA thru Thomasville GA to Valdosta GA. And finally US-27 will get to I-10 in Tallahassee FL.
