RE: Bolt on bigfoot levelers on an e450 chasis

They did have a contract with a company in Florida. I do not remember the name it was 10 years ago. We had our done at the Plant also but it is only a 3 - 4 hour drive for us. Drove up one day and was home for supper the next day. I found the Florida company from the Corporate web site. It was mid-state if I remember correctly. Did not offer a free installation but we were only in Florida for a couple of weeks, so the corporate offer and location worked out well for us.

RE: Crossing into Canada from Maine

Check out the forum on RVing in Alaska and Canada There is a section of what not to bring into either and what you need to enter each. Tons of info. A US passport is needed to get out of Canada into the US.

RE: Going around Cincinnati

Major construction on I 71 thru Columbus. From approximately 90mm to south of state fair grounds. Major backup all day everyday. Last summer we took beltway east going north and west when returning.

RE: Going around Cincinnati

Both I 75 and I 71 thru the city have construction. There are some narrow lanes to deal with. Some construction north of I71/I275 north till you get past Kings Island. Runs well though. Also some construction where I275 and I75/71 connect south of city. I have not been on I 275 east of city for quite a while but there was some construction on the east side for a while. Just took I 275 west to and from airport with only a very short lane restriction in Indiana.

RE: Albuquerque Balloon Festival Questions

We went several years ago via a FMCA trip. About a week. Daily activities and side trips. Stayed on the grounds, had E and W with mid week S clean out. Well worth it. As others have said, weather dictates if they fly or not. Afternoons not much but with side trips built in it was a great experience.

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.

EZ pass

Do you have to purchase your EZ pass from your home state? May have a use for one this coming July but not in home state.

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.

We have a 2009 Melbourne, Not familiar with the one you referenced. We are very pleased with it. Several long trips including Alaska.

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.
