RE: Cold weather effects on Refrigerators

We put a small light bulb in the back of our Dometic to keep the cold weather from affecting it.

RE: Ho Hum RV Park - Carrabelle FL

We stayed at Ho Hum several years ago, yes, the views are pretty. I prefer a park that we can at least get into the water. That was not advised since Ho Hum caters to fishermen and sharks are in the waters.

RE: Anyone towing a Elite / Mobile Suites with a 1 ton

Have you found the Suites owners website? If not, post this question to actual owners and they will give you real world answers, www.suitesowners.com The posters here have given you good advice. We have a 2012 Mobile Suite and it weighs 19,400 loaded. I would not tow an Elite with a 1 ton.

RE: Anyone camped around Grand Lake In Oklahoma?

We have camped at Cedar Oaks in Grove, which is right on Grand Lake, easy access and good campsites. We have also stayed at Honey Creek State Park, also in Grove, they have elec & water at the site with a dump onsite, bathrooms & showers are old but useable.

RE: Crime at Emma Wood and Rincon

We served as park hosts at Emma Wood for 5 winter seasons. Generators and bikes were always being stolen. I don't know about Rincon, it's a Ventura County campground and Emma Wood is a state campground. When campers check in we gave them a printed page about thefts. Even one of the park hosts had a generator stolen. It's not the homeless that are stealing, it's thieves in vehicles that come in at 3 am with large bolt cutters. If you stay at either campground don't leave a generator outside.

RE: Norcold refrigerator and charred back wall

We saw the same thing when we changed out our Dometic 1350 that went through 3 cooling units and 1 complete changeout of the frig. Scared the cr** out of us. We thanked our lucky stars and are loving the Samsung rf18 that was installed. We will never have another Dometic/Norcold piece of cr**. We've been wondering how much their sales are down on those??

RE: need window screen

Check with the rv salvage companies like Colaw in MO. There are several around the country.

RE: Where to get "deep sheets"

Just buy regular deep sheets, lots of places carry them. Since rv mattresses are not the same size as regular mattresses we use men's suspenders to keep them tight. Buy them at Wal Mart, lay them in an X pattern under the mattress, attach to the sides or 2 to the sides and 2 to the ends of the mattresses. They are adjustable to any size mattress.

RE: Appointments

We have been fulltime for 9 1/2 years and doctors/dentists and hair stylists have been our biggest issue. We have been fortunate to find providers who offered cash discounts. We were not Medicare age so we purchased high deductible policies that usually don't cover any preventive care. We have gone back to our family Dr in Reno, we found a clinic in MT and a lab in MT that were reasonable. We've also paid attention to things like breast cancer month (October), a lot of providers offer $65 mammograms. February is heart health month and we saw an ad for a cardiology practice that was offering a lipid panel, mini cat scan and office visit with a cardiologist for $99 a person. This year one of us went on Medicare and the other is still using the high deductible policy. There are discount dental plans that I've found online, pay $70 and get 1/2 price on every dental service. You have to be responsible and keep up with your medical care. When visiting a new practitioner we provide that last 2 years of lab work and mammogram reports

RE: No turning back now

Good tips from other posters. Try to follow the 2-2-2 rule, travel about 200 miles, stop by 2 and stay 2 days. Actually, I would recommend picking a state or region and take a month or more to see all you want to see. Get Passport America and Good Sam cards only. You can get burned out by traveling too much. Travel the "red roads", the secondary highways in the Wal Mart Atlas are in red. Get a Wal Mart Atlas, Mountain Directory, Next Exit Guide. Yes, there are apps, RVparky, Allstays but I hate using the small screen on the phone. Plan where you are going to stay well ahead of federal holidays. Visit city/county/state parks and Corps of Engineers parks. Do you have your Golden Access pass? You get free entry into all National Parks & Monuments and 1/2 price camping at all COE parks nationwide.

RE: Two bedroom, Two bath

There's a mid level 5th wheel, Luxury by Design, I think is the name. It's mostly known as a brand that carnival (travelers) buy & use. They make them large.

RE: Decorate for the Holidays - Pictures

I don't have any pic's to post but we have small decorations for every holiday. You can too. I have 2 Rubbermaid tubs in the basement for Christmas and stuff stashed in several cabinets inside. For the fall and Thanksgiving I have a 10" fall doll, a small metal pumpkin on the kitchen counter and a table runner on the buffet top. For Christmas I hang stockings on the back cornice box, a 3 ft skinny Christmas tree and various other decorations. I have Valentines day, St Patricks, 4th of July, mostly flat things that fit easily in a cabinet. Keep your eyes open for small folding or flat decorations.

RE: Priest lake idaho

We stayed there a couple of years ago. As I remember we had a site in the 50's and it was really hard to back into because of trees, bushes, etc. Hope your reservations are closer to the lake (in the 100's), those sites were more open. It's beautiful there, kinda in the middle of nowhere. Others have given good advice on entering Canada

RE: Passport America Experience

Excellent review Capt RonB, agree 100%. We have had PA for about 8 years and it has more than paid for itself. In 2011 we traveled from CA to the east coast on I 10 headed north all the way to Niagra Falls. It seemed to me that the east coast had more restrictions than the Midwest or west, but we worked with it and saved a bunch o' money.

RE: I can't say I would recommend a Voltage!

I don't know who makes the Voltage but try to look for an owner's group. They are always your best source for info or to share your grief.

RE: KC-0716 Module on DRV

The Suites owners forum has been upgrading to a new server for a few months. Try the other Drv forums, under Thor forums and www.5thwheelforums.com there are Drv threads. Post your question there, other owners should be able to help

RE: A/C with Heat Pump, worth it?

My opinion is not based on efficiency or cost, I would NOT get another heat pump. When I'm cold I want it to warm up fast and the heat pump just takes too long. We have a furnace and fireplace(electric heater), the furnace warms up the rv so much quicker. I switch to the heat pump AFTER it's warm in here.

RE: Seattle area to Casa Grande I-5 or 93?

There actually is a small truck stop on 318 just as you turn off 93. We went that way last year. 318 is no more remote than 93, just make sure you fill up when you can. There are fuel stations in Twin Falls, Jackpot, Wells, Ely and on 318. Just 2 lane highways but in good shape. I would avoid I 5 like the plague.
