RE: Night stops with RV

Maybe we need large paved parking lots with electric pedestals for those who could care less about a campfire? They could be large enough to accommodate large trucks too. I think I've been to this campground.:)

RE: What gps do you use?

Thanks for all the posts. But in regards to Second Chances post (Have you used the search function on the forum? This has been discussed dozens - if not hundreds - of times) Rob if you type in what I posted, disregarding what replays we had today, you will find tons of post, nothing to do with what I asked. Has anyone else used the Rand Mcneil? However, if you use Advanced Search feature and put GPS as the keyword and select Topic only, you get this which is Exactly what you're looking for.

RE: What gps do you use?

Co-pilot RV on a tablet. The DW uses a TomTom, a wonderful "dedicated" GPS. TomTom took us down a 13% grade in the Catskills the first year we had it. Last year, TomTom tried to take us down a parkway with 10' high bridges and Co-pilot took us the right way. Whatever you get, make sure you can enter your rig's dimensions and that the GPS actually uses them to route you. Also, never select the shortest route.

RE: firearm question

As usual, it didn't take long for a gun thread to turn personal and ugly. Hopefully the OP got an answer. CLOSED

RE: NW Indiana to Bar Harbor

For those that may have traveled this route, is there a big truck stop or similar on 84 at the 90 interchange? Buddy of mine goes from Niagara Falls NY to New Brunswick, and they stay at a rest area along the MA Pike while in MA. Even tho he has a genny on his toy hauler, doesn't use it while staying in rest area. The Charlton rest area isn't far from that interchange. It's usually pretty packed.

RE: NW Indiana to Bar Harbor

Do any of the interstates on this route in Massachusetts have rest areas with electric hook ups? Ohio does, and five other states do as well after searching for this. Actually, we consider ourselves lucky to have rest areas at all. They've closed several in the area over the past 10 years. No money for infrastructure here.

RE: NW Indiana to Bar Harbor

I-90 (the thruway) is fine. I-86 goes through Binghampton which is always under construction and the last time I took I-88 it was miserable. Worse road I've ever been on. Minuteman is your obvious stop, but that's 500 miles from Erie and that means a 10 hour drive. I'd add a night and stop at Arrowhead Marina and RV Park in Schenectady, right off I-90. But then again I'm retired and I don't have to hurry. Minuteman is a surprisingly nice campground.

RE: Vinyl plank flooring - snap lock with history of success?

Allure with Grip Strip from HoD. About $300 of material. Not recommended for installation in a non-climate controlled environment, but it's been through all 4 seasons twice now in the northeast now and it looks the same as these pics. https://i.imgur.com/omNXEZVl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/lXdt98Ul.jpg https://i.imgur.com/9fHAqpql.jpg Leave a 1/4 inch gap around the edges and make sure NOTHING gets fastened through the vinyl into the subfloor. This means cutting around seats and sofa brackets etc and double stick taping the edge trim to the vinyl. The floor has to move as a unit, else it will buckle.

RE: Trip ideas and suggestions

Sounds like you'll be doing I-10. I'd stop in Breaux Bridge LA and spend a night or 2 at Poche's Fish 'n Camp and chow down on crawfish etoufee at the local market (also called Poche's). Further east there's the Naval Air Museum in Pensacola. On the warning side, I-10 from Lafayette to Baton Rouge is a terrible stretch of blacktop.

RE: Any Motorhome CG near Boston not requiring mortgage

Boston/Minuteman in Littleton. Close to the commuter rail $45 a night. Actually a very nice CG. Wompatuck State Park in Hingham is close to the commuter boat into Boston. Electricity and water at some sites.

RE: New Location For Licensing

There are several articles and forum questions over on Escapees. I would think they are the local experts. They seem to favor SD, FL and TX tho.

RE: 2019 Chevrolet Equinox towing

Plenty of people towing an Equinox. I had battery issues as well. If you search the Dinghy towing forum with the keyword Equinox, there's probably 50 threads including a couple of mine and one from a member named Dennis who actually got Chevy to change their procedure for towing. I ended up not using the brake and pulling the fuse recommended in the manual. This potentially would cause the "death wobble" so I bungeed the steering wheel. That, plus an RVi Brake Toad Charger solved the dead battery issue. I now run my RVi2 brake from the battery jumper pack. I'm really glad I bought that jumper pack. The BEST purchase I ever made.

RE: Busiest month of year for northern states campgrounds?

August in the UP Wisconsin wasn't too bad last year. We didn't make advanced reservations anywhere and Labor Day Weekend was the only time we had to "settle" for our 2nd pick.
