RE: What dash cam do you use?

When you drive a large, obvious vehicle with out-of-state plates, you become an easy target for harassment and insurance games. I run a cheap dashcam - have for maybe 5 or 6 years. Still works great. Watch the videos of ugly cars pulling out in front of nice vehicles and slamming on their brakes. Without a camera try to prove that happened. Pictures of bear and deer crossing the road are just a bonus!

RE: Considering 100 watt folding Solar Panel

I also use the Renogy 100W "suitcase" set-up. Works great - I have a (2) group 27's, and it keeps them fully charged, even when running Fantastic Fan for hours, LED lights, charging cell phones, etc. Shade is a real issue in the East ( we have trees....!)- so I made a 50' extension cord for them from low-voltage outside lighting wire. So despite doing everything wrong (charge controller at the panel, too long a wire run, etc) they work great, meet my needs, and I can move them to sunny spots as the shade moves over the course of the day. To each their own!

RE: Channel-Port aux Basques

You don't say what size/type rig you have. The road east from the ferry landing has some pretty sites, but it is small, particularly at the eastern end. We went out there for a day trip as we were planning to depart from Newfoundland as a day trip from Grand Codroy CG.

RE: Travel Health Insurance

Ditto on FMCA - known as FMCAssist - worth the cost of membership for that alone. As far as medical insurance for out of country, we have used Seven Corners twice. Happy to report we never have had to actually use the plan, but certainly good to have! ST

RE: State/Private campgrounds near Glacier

Rocky Mtn Hi CG in Kalispell worked well for us.

RE: Best route from Harrisburg, Pa to Bar Harbor

Like DrewE - 81 to Binghampton, NY, then 88 to Albany. We take Rte 7 to Rte 9 across VT to Keene, NH - I now avoid Rte 84 west of Hartford, CT as much as I avoid NYC! 87 south of Albany is a pricey toll road IMHO. Running north towards Burlington, VT is much nicer ride - look at Rte 2 east across VT, NH, and ME as an alternative if you are not pressed for time.

RE: Looking for beach rv camping

Hampton Beach State Park, NH. Just a dune away from the water. No pets, tho...

RE: Who is towing a Subaru Forester 4 down?

Towing '09 5-speed Forester for over 20k miles without issue. Think 2016 is when Subaru of America changed their policy regarding towing - now don't recommend it at all. Other forums have also had this discussion - no one seems to be aware of any physical changes to prevent this, but you are on your own (no warranty) if you do it... We use NSA ReadyBrute towbar with integrated surge brake - works great - no power drain to toad, lighter, no box to store, less pricey, easy hookup. Blue Ox baseplate. Apparently Blue Ox does make baseplates for 2018 models, too...

RE: Class C in the winter

I prefer not to expose the underside of my rig to the salt, etc. they spread on the roads! Actually better to be out in bitter cold than marginal cold - when it's really chilly salt doesn't work well, so you don't get the salty brine that rots out anything metal it gets exposed to.

RE: Bryce Canyon N.P. sights to see and where to stay

Just spent 3 nights at Bryce. Currently both North CG and Sunset CG are on 1st come basis - they stopped taking reservations 5/31 as they will be paving both CG's at some point in the not-too-distant future. No issue getting a site for us. If you are just windshield viewing then 1 day is fine. If you plan to do any hiking you will need at least 2 nights there. Parking at any of the viewpoints near the Amphitheater is next to impossible - take advantage of the free shuttle bus. Sunset CG is better situated if you plan to hike.

RE: Tire covers for duallys

Agree with above - goal is to keep sunlight (UV rays) from affecting rubber. Covering the outside tire is sufficient - inner tire protected by outer tire. No issue putting single cover on outside dual - if tires are that close together you have another issue!!!

RE: traveler's medical insurance for eastern Canada

We've used Seven Corners for out of country coverage. I thought it was pretty reasonable. Happy to say we never had to use it!

RE: Campground suggestions near Asheville, NC.

Taps. No mountain to climb! Met our needs just fine.

RE: Hubcap

Try a couple of wire/cable ties to snug the hubcap against the wheel itself.

RE: Tv connection

I have the Jack antenna and do have the amplifier push button located on the plate that has the 12V outlet and coax connection.

RE: Solar Kits from Amazon

Renogy is a reputable company. I got my 100W "suitcase" thru them on Amazon.

RE: Lightning protection?

Regarding "insulating" value of tires.... they're NOT rubber... they are black, since they contain carbon, and oils, good conductors, and are filled with metal wires (steel belts). Minimal insulating value! Lightning is a STATIC charge - meaning it moves along the surface of objects, unlike AC current, which passes THRU things (like people...). Not going to isolate an RV from the ground...

RE: mercedes sprinter chassis

I find my B+ on the Sprinter chassis does well, as long as I back it down speed-wise before the start of the descent, and downshift appropriately. So yes, you can manually downshift.

RE: Looking for opinions on tow bars

Check out NSA ReadyBrute. Towbar and integrated surge brake. Lighter system than many, less expensive supplemental brake system. Tough to find many negative comments - simple system that just works!

RE: Harper's Ferry WV

We stayed in MD at Greenbrier SP, took the toad to Harper's Ferry. Spent about a day and a half visiting the area. Much history in the area!
