RE: Through-The-Roof sealant

YES! I like Through The Roof sealant, but I don't use it in any quantity on my roof. Use it instead of a silicone type caulk on seams, etc. I apply it with a small artist-type paint brush.

RE: Hartford Ct to Scranton Pa?

Guess I missed the part where you were already in Hartford - I saw the part about Maine... FYI - just on I-88 3 days ago (in the rain...). 88 has a long stretch of concrete surface, so it's a bit like riding on a train... Traffic is light, so easy to ride in left lane until traffic approaches from behind. Binghampton has a confusing interchange due to road construction, but not too bad. Still avoids the high tolls on I-87! Safe travels!

RE: Hartford Ct to Scranton Pa?

I HATE I-84 in CT west of Hartford! Even with family in the area I still avoid it (actually like my family, too...!). When we head to PA from NH I take Rte 9 across southern VT into Troy/Albany, NY, then I-88 to Binghamton, NY, where I pick up I-81 south. MUCH better travelling conditions! Just did that trip again about 2 weeks ago.

RE: Albuquerque and Santa Fe?

This past spring we stayed in Bernalillo, NM at Coronado CG. Used it as our "launching pad" for Chaco Canyon, then again for several nights - 1 day to ABQ and 1 day to Santa Fe. Easy commute to both places - would recommend it!

RE: Rock Guard, Bra or necked?

Standard truck mud flaps, just behind the duallies and about 3 to 4 inches off the ground. Toad has some VERY minor windshield dings, but think they are just as much from daily use as towing 25k miles...

RE: I-84 in Conn. & Mass.

Hartford isn't the issue on 84, it's south/west of there thru the Danbury/Waterbury area. Hartford is mild compared to those areas, if that tells you anything! From Scranton area I run 81 north to 88 in Binghamton, NY, then 88 to Albany area. I find the tolls on NY I-87 really high, so I avoid that stretch. And I-78 on the east side of PA has been really rough recently - like shake things apart rough - potholes and open bridge expansion joints, dropping my speed to about 45 mph. Hence the route I listed.

RE: What are you towing with your Sprinter?

The GCWR and GVWR are correct for ANY model/brand built on the Sprinter chassis. Different manufacturers will have differing tow capacities. Our Coachmen Prism has a 5000# hitch, BUT due to the frame extension it is mounted on they drop the tow capacity to 3500#. That said, as noted below we drsg around about 3200#'s of Suby Forester - it handles that just fine. Mileage-wise I get about 15+ mpg with the toad, and almost 16.5 without it, so really not too much of a "drag" on the system. But you do need to watch manufacturers weight ratings...

RE: I-84 in Conn. & Mass.

I hate I-84 in CT once you are west of Hartford... I've had nothing but bad luck thru Danbury and Waterbury every time I have taken it. So much so I now cross the Green Mountains of VT on Rte 9 when we leave NH for our travels rather than put up with I-84 in CT... And I have family that lives down there, too!

RE: NY Campgrounds W/Hookups open in winter?

Never seen a trailer on skis... ;) Unlikely you will find a park with water turned on - electricity, maybe... Try this link: https://www.allstays.com/Campgrounds/New-York-am-all-year.htm

RE: Anyone using multiple house batts. on their Roadtrek 190V

Our '03 190P only had the single battery behind the passenger side rear tire. The 2nd battery, which was an option we did not have, went in the small exterior compartment just behind the double side passenger doors (which would put it almost under the toilet). We have friends who had that set-up in their 190P.

RE: what am I not thinking of???

^^^^ "ReadyStop" set-up, to go along with ReadyBrute surge brake. You do realize you need to run a cable from the brake pedal thru the engine compartment to connect to the ReadyBrute, right? Second cable routed similarly for Ready Stop...

RE: Looking at Newfoundland for 2019

3 years ago we took our RT 190P to Newfoundland. Spent about 4 weeks actually on the island. No scooter, but my wife has a walking disability, will use a wheelchair at times, and we managed to thoroughly enjoy ourselves.

RE: LED Lantern Brightness and quality

Check out something like this: https://smile.amazon.com/Portable-Outdoor-Camping-Rechargeable-Emergency/dp/B077YMKVF1/ref=pd_sbs_468_4?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B077YMKVF1&pd_rd_r=SPNK9AXV7WRV8MRNP4V5&pd_rd_w=sxJqb&pd_rd_wg=19ceH&psc=1&refRID=SPNK9AXV7WRV8MRNP4V5 I got one of these portable LED lanterns a couple years ago - a LOT of light for little money! Mine was under a different name, but similar specs.

RE: Looking at new Class C but there is a seat issue

Try different chassis manufacturer. Also, might be able to get a chassis with adjustable pedals. Our F450 has that option, not sure what they use on "C's".

RE: Acadia to Philadelphia area

I would AVOID the GW Bridge at all costs!!! Tappan Zee is a much better plan. ST

RE: How to protect against poor RV park power?

Here's an example of a plug in volt meter from Amazon - less than $10 - Yeeco Wall Flat US Plug LCD Digital Voltmeter. Makes a nice little nightlight, too! If I find a tired looking 30A receptacle, I also use the 50A to 30A "dogbone". Many more rigs run 30A, so those receptacles get worn out sooner than the 50's. Like others, I run a Progressive Industries 30A portable "EMS" that has shut power down to our rig multiple times if the park voltage drops - even had 1 place with too HIGH voltage which cut it off. Well worth the somewhat pricey investment.

RE: Need solar help!

Nobody else asked... where are you measuring the voltage and what are you using to measure it? Just questioning if it is an accurate reading.

RE: Securing you rig from theft (truck and camper)

Get a http://faketv.com/ - makes it look like a TV is on. Turns on a dusk for several hours. Designed for home, but actual power input is 9VDC, I run mine from a 12VDC lighter plug to 9VDC adapter - plugs right in. Minimal draw, so great in camper, too. Motion activated solar powered lights mounted to each side of rig work great, too! Got mine thru Amazon.

RE: Another Mattress Thread

Also check www.foambymail.com - I've created custom mattresses for present and previous rigs from foam I bought from them, then (easily) cut to fit. This from a cheap Scottish Yankee!
