RE: Your "favorite" BBQ Grill, suggestions

Had a Webber Q now for 2 years, really like it so far. Removed the regulator (very simple) so that I could attach it to the propane connection on my fiver.

RE: 2021 Chevy Steps up the Max Tow Rating

Sure doesn’t look like my 2009 Silverado. It is very different front end look for sure. With the big CHEVROLET across the front not hard to mistake it for something else. maybe ?? maybe?? Who knows?

RE: TT Tire Recommendation

While not wanting to get into a debate about North American versus China manufactured tires, I just want to comment that while travelling in Utah in 2012 We had to purchase 2 new tires for our unit. We were in a very small town and the tire place offered us 2 Crosswind Tires (made by LingLong in Thailand) The tires were L780 12 ply and again while I understand the many things that affect tire life longevity they are still on the trailer some 15000 plus miles later and still running well. No endorsement just a comment. Good luck with your tire search. The Crosswinds are paired with 2 Maxxis which are also performing well.

RE: Oregon Coast in September

We have been to Oregon twice in September, however not with the pandemic thing in our way. If things open up and you decide to go this September there is definitely lots to see and do. The weather can be foggy and overcast or pure sun on September. If things do open up the dunes in Florence are well worth seeing and doing. If restaurants are open the Bridgewater Fish House in Florence is a must (reservations probably required) In Newport Beach the Aquarium if open is a must, Live Oceans Cafe in the port area is great food if open, Nye Beach is worth a stroll in Newport. Cape Perpetuia and the surrounding natural wonders are amazing. All the lighthouses are neat. Old Town in Bandon. It goes on and on. Probably one of the most beautiful drives along the coast is in the Yachats area. If you are able to go yes the Oregon Coast is worth every minute of your trip, provided things are open due to our ongoing conditions.

RE: Oregon Coast in September

Astoria has a fantastic Maritime Museum, Bow Picker across the street for fish and chips - always a line, $2 to ride the trolly with naration by the conductor. The Column is interesting but not high on our list. I've been kayaking on the Lewis and Clark River and Ft Stevens lake. Ft Stevens is a great CG and you can walk on the beach. If the fish are running expect to see a thousland boats on the Columbia. The Columbia Bar BTW is the most dangerous in the world. About 300 major ship wrecks and the Maritime museum has a map. Kids love the museum. Totally agree Astoria and the mentioned attractions are well worth it. Also as said before north to south on the Oregon coast is the best see way more things that way.

RE: Looking for a smallish BHS trailer, first timer

Have a look at the Winnebago Minis and Mini Winnies. They have lots of different floor plans sizes, etc. My step daughter and her husband just bought a Mini bunkbed one and love it.

RE: Paid Caravans to Alaska Worth it?

In 2010 we went to Alaska with our fifth wheel and truck shown in my signature. We left July 1st and returned home August 10th. We travelled over 11,000 kms and it cost us $6200.00 in total for everything, fuel, eats, treats , camp grounds, cool ones, attractions, etc. The only reservations for Campgrounds we made were for Denali, although the Kenai Peninsula truly is busy during fishing season. We went to all parts of Alaska while there.

RE: Full Timing in Canadian Winter if the Border is still CLOSED

Some people try Nanaimo or other spots on Vancouver Island, ferry ride over is quite pricey but what isn’t these days. Weather on a normal year is pretty respectable on the southern part of the island.

RE: Happy birthday Canada.

A very Happy, Healthy and Safe Canada Day to all. While the first half of 2020 has been completely out of the ordinary, there is one thing that we can take strength from. “Even Standing Apart We All Stand Together” Happy Canada Day everyone.

RE: Ventline Stove Hood Fan Blades

I changed out my bathroom El Cheapo exhaust fan for a Hengs Vortex 2 fan. It was a very simple swap out and installation and so far works great. Just for curiosity I tried the fan blade from the old El Cheapo bathroom fan on the stove hood exhaust fan and yes with the more blades the fan runs much quieter than ever before. When I get the PWM speed control installed it should be really good and run even quieter at a slower speed. I also removed the very cheap rattly plastic damper at the same time it appeared to be doing absolutely nothing but making more noise. Will install screening over the vent if there is any indication of bugs getting in.

Ventline Stove Hood Fan Blades

I have a Ventline Model PH-21-24BC Stove hood in my fiver. The fan as most stove hood fans is very noisy and rattly although it still works well. I saw somewhere in an older post that changing from a 3 blade fan to a fan with more blades runs much quieter although with less air movement. Is there any truth to this? Any other thoughts about stopping or lessening the noise from the stove hood fan?

RE: Rig for two couples?

Does one of them already own a big ole truck to tow a 5th wheel? A toyhauler with a separate garage could work. Put a residential bed back there. TV and maybe a porta potty for going #1 in the middle of the night. A class C might work better for driving into tight spots. Plus others can relax in the living area while driving down the road. I have no idea the tow capacities. But maybe a Class C toying a small travel trailer? Just what I was thinking about the size of truck that you would need for such a size trailer? The original poster talked about the possibility of liquidating the truck and trailer after the trip was over (be it successful or not) This could be a big financial hit because of depreciation and small usage for such a short period of time.

RE: 5th Wheel RV Cover removal and storage

I use the same approach as Thermoguy, except that I roll it up (inside face down and then flip the sides up and fold and roll it from back to front) this way it is ready to go on the fiver and roll backwards from front to back and flip out the sides and drop over the sides next winter. Works real well and quick to reinstall. Use a cardboard tube to act as a roller to get it started rolling up and then it fits in the bag real easily and stores in the garage for the summer. One year I unzipped all 3 of the passenger side zippers and then pulled the cover off over the other side. Works really well but then a bit cumbersome to rezip sometimes. If it won’t fit back in the bag, I once saw a Youtube where they just took the cover off their motorhome and stuffed it in a big garbage can for summer storage. A real must (no pun intended) is to make sure the cover is completely dry before storing it however you may do it.

RE: Propane tank age out, refurbish or replace?

I personally prefer to recertify. It is not too expensive. I did some research a number of years back on this topic. One consideration is the quality of the new tanks vs that of the old. Especially if it is made in China. Who knows where the steel came from? Can't beat good old Made in the USA. The really old tanks were heavier, because the steel was thicker. Perhaps not an issue, but these things can become a bomb in a hard collision situation. Kinda like the way car fenders used to be thicker stronger steel. Having said that, this likely applies to really old tanks, probably past what any of us own. But, as mentioned, why dispose of a perfectly good tank when revalving it makes it like new again. Totally agree with you, I did the same calculations regarding recert versus new, but one day in Costco two years ago they were selling 30 pound tanks filled for $69.00 (which was a pretty awesome price in our country) so I couldn’t resist the new. But definitely the tanks are much lighter so obviously the material is thinner.

RE: Looking for revelstoke recommendations

there's also the KOA, not the greatest but there's a pool in the campground the kids may enjoy. We'e also stayed at the one N of Revy on the dam reservoir but the name escapes me at the moment. You are thinking of Martha Creek Prov. Park which is a very nice provincial park on the Lake Revelstoke reservoir. But no services and about 20 minutes north of Revelstoke.

RE: Looking for revelstoke recommendations

Lamplighter for sure, really great owners, good location, lived in Revy for almost 25 years, lots to see and do. Take the kids on the Pipe Coaster at Revelstoke ski hill they will have a hoot. Great mountain biking, hiking sight seeing in the area. Pool at the recreation centre is second to none for the kids. Lots of great places to eat. Need any thing further PM me. Enjoy yourself, Morley
