RE: Leak between Awning holder and RV

Do not understand your question. Why would the awning be attached to the floor of your RV?

RE: Stabilizing a Class C

Started out using the commercial leveling blocks and 2x8's. Have the level indicators. Generally worked ok especially on paved sites. A real pain while setting up in rain. Added Bigfoot later. Found on sale and made the trip to the Mich. facility. Now can set up without leaving coach except to make sure slides will extend without hitting anything. Can reset if the coach settles after a day or two when on sandy sites. Don't get soaked during a rain store while setting up.

RE: Park Model /RVFlood Insurance

There have been several articles on the news about flood insurance. Summary, only available thru a government agency and only is areas the the government has classified as flood planes. Good luck. I suspect that since it is a trailer, the insurance companies will say you should move it if it may flood.

RE: Chicago Trip Advice

We live near Cincinnati. I would suggest you skip Chicago and plan to make it a separate trip. Not knowing where in Ohio you are, I would suggest I 70 till you get west of the Mississippi river. You can do that with 1 overnight. From there you have several options 90, 80, 70, or farther south. As far as Chicago goes, it can easily be a 1 day or less drive from any where in Ohio. Take your car and find a suburban hotel or motel and take the commuter train into the city. Spend a whole day or more and head back home.

RE: Eastern US/Canada/Texas Trip Advice

As far as going in and out of Canada, check out the forum on Canada and Alaska. A lot of do's and don'ts. You must have a US passport to return to the US. When we went thru Canada to Alaska, your drivers license was good enough to get into Canada but we used our passports any way. also info on not only firearms but food that is not allowed by either Canada or the US.

RE: Atlanta

Came through a month ago on a Saturday, on purpose, about 11 AM. Just north of downtown, large backup, all lanes. About 3 miles later a sign stating the 6 of the 8 north bound lanes closed. Then after another couple of miles at a top speed of 7 mph, we find them resurfacing 2 of the 6 lanes. 4 were void of anything.

RE: Night stops with RV

Did a 3 month trip several years ago. Spent a lot of time planning. First we looked at an overall route. Then selected what to see/visit where and how long. Also set some criteria for how many or few miles a day. Many times would find an interesting stop and decide that we would only travel x miles that day and spend the rest of the day sightseeing, of travel for a while and then sightsee and then travel some more. Looked up camping sites of PA parks, or KOA or other known places. Factored all this in and then when issues developed, and they did modified as necessary. Had some stops that were defining as to when and how long, as well as multi nights when we would do laundry, etc. Its the nature of the beast and make the best of it.

Tires LT 225/75R16 load range E

Looking into replacing current tires, 5.5 yrs old on a E450. Looking at Michlein, Goodyear, Cooper, Continental, Handcock. They will be Out of Date long before tread wear is an issue. Comments, suggestions, experiences would be appreciated.

RE: Class C Privacy Curtain??

Bought a movers blanket at Harbor Freight. Put gromlets on one side. Used those stick up type hooks across the cab over spaced to fit the gromlets. It keeps out the heat in the cab, especially when the cab faces the sun. Keeps in the A/C in the body of the coach. In cooler or colder weather keeps in the heat in the body of the coach.

RE: Temporary Cell Phone Service in Canada

Several years ago we went to Alaska and we could activate canada service with our Verizon phone. We found that we only had a cell signal around larger cities. It was not worth the cost to activate. If you are going to be in and around larger cities it might be worth it but not if traveling.

RE: Roadside Assistance

Coach Net. Radiator blew on a sunday about 50 miles into Montana. Sent truck to tow us back to near where we were that morning (100 miles), parked us in a campground. They said there was a ford dealer able to handle us. Next morning dealer said not till the end of week. They then found another one 100 miles away to replace the radiator and had us towed there. Got coach back 25 hours after getting there. Coach had 4000 miles on it and we were on a 3 month trip to and from Alaska. Lost 2 days, visited one of the best museums on the whole trip and only missed one planned stop. Never saw a bill of either tow.

RE: Propane Hose Blocked

My Scout Troop uses rubber hoses for our propane stoves. After a while the hoses deteriate on the inside and eventually plug up. We go camping monthly and have at least 1 or 2 go bad every year. Secondly, the end of the connection from the hose to the stove is a very small opening. We either have to run a wire thru it to clear it or replace. The life on these depend on the overall usage.

HOV lane I 75 in Atlanta, GA

I know the HOV lane requires 2 passengers but if you are in an RV towing a car can you still use the lane.

RE: Jackson, WY to Banaff and beyond

If you have not traveled to Canada, I suggest you look at the Canada/Alaska Forum. There are a lot of good info on what to and not due crossing the border both ways. Also a lot of help while traveling in Canada.
