RE: Leveling Blocks vs jack pads

I use them and they are OK but not as strong as wood. I have never broken one but have kind of warped them a little, since you have them, I would use them until they break.

RE: sold our class a

My wife used to drive our class C motor homes but she hasn't driven since we went to class A, in fact she rarely drives our car. The driving is all up to me. I have considered going back to a class C as I am getting older and it seems like they are a little easier to drive but now with this virus I am not sure when or if we will be able to travel like we used to. It is not just the virus but her health is failing and I don't feel as confident as I used to about dealing with what may happen when away from home. Sorry for rambling on, it is just thinking out loud about our situation.

RE: Should/will Glacier, Teton and Yellowstone open?

This is so sad and I feel for all campground owners and everyone else that has their income cut off by this terrible virus. I do believe it is and should be a national emergency!

RE: Which motorhome to buy

Unless you are very wealthy, I would not even consider buying a motor home or any luxury item right now!

RE: Iowa Campgrounds

I disagree with our Ia governor on this. It is a lot easier to social distance in a camp ground than a Walmart etc. Also there were some doctors and medical professionals staying in camp grounds to keep their families safe! Our governor shut down small shoe stores and clothing stores etc. but left big box stores open, that makes no sense to me. I think it should be mandatory for all store workers and customers to wear a mask but that is also not the case. It sees to me that common sense is not being used by our officials! This is not meant to be a political post just an opinion about what should be happening.

RE: Texans: are you gonna take this

Ha Ha, I love Texas and I am from Iowa, this was just a joke, but it was funny!Why is Iowa a state? So Nebraskans can have someone to make fun of. Ha Ha, doesn't bother me a bit!

RE: Frog in fresh water holding tank!

Well, we all need a little humor in this stressful time!

RE: Vinyl Graphic Repair

You may think I am crazy but the graphics our 2001 Brave were getting dull looking so I tried coating them with tire shine. It worked great and brightened them up. I used it several times and now I rarely have to do it any more. I am very happy, it works the best of anything I have ever tried!

RE: class a motorhome tires

I think most brand name tires are good. I did have a cheap set once that didn't wear very long, no trouble, just wore out pretty fast. Running Michelins right now with no problems.

RE: Heading Home (North)

Wash your hands after pumping fuel, the handles on gas pumps are almost never cleaned!

RE: How are others facing issues with the Coronavirus?

For those that are traveling, be sure to wash your hands after fueling up. The fuel handles at filling stations are touched by everyone and rarely if ever sanitized!

RE: Am I being greedy?

If the deal is done, it is done, but, when I trade off a vehicle it is as is where is, that is the deal or I walk!

RE: Save a bit on fuel

I agree, if they can't make money on fuel they will quit selling it which will bring the price back up. As much as I like cheap fuel, I am sure I have lost more on my 401K and investments than I can possibly save on fuel costs! It is a sad situation.

RE: Yellowstone Trip

I personally love going over the Bighorn Mtn on 14a but agree that for most people it is not a good idea. I don't mind the extreme nature of 14a. I have gone over it in both directions with a variety of vehicle combinations. I have also gone over on 16 and would highly recommend it to most people. You will still be doing some steep and twisted roads. I agree, I used to love going over 14a and 16, and have done it in multiple rigs, unfortunately, our current rig doesn't like steep grades very good (trans gets hot). Also we are getting up in age (75) with a few health issues so I am afraid our days of travelling that route are over. The trip the original poster is going sounds like a lot of fun, have fun with it no matter what roads you take!

RE: Toilet clog

The guy with the idea of shoving your arm down into the toilet was one of my thoughts. I'm sure I'd be wearing a long glove. My thoughts exactly, I definitely wouldn't stick my bare hand down there!!! lol ;-)

RE: Roadside assist

I was towed 70 miles from the Badlands in SD. to Rapid City, and then probably 30 miles at Kalispell, MT. That would have cost much more than the price of my membership with Good Sam. Since it was Sunday evening, they towed me to a campground for the night and then came back Monday morning and towed me to a Chevrolet dealer at Kalispell.

RE: Slide out awnings yay or nay?

Our 2001 Winnebago still has the original slide topper awning and I have never had a problem with it.
