RE: Battery price question...

Beyond cost,space is also a consideration. 2 GC2s take up less space than 2 Group 31s which would be required to get the same capacity.

RE: Air Flow Deflectors

Some real world experience here. Short bed pickup with deflector on headache rack and TT with vertical front like Dodge Guy - gain of 1 MPG. With the same truck and deflector towing a TT with more angled and rounded front the gain is minimal. Even 1 MPG may not be enough to offset the cost of a deflector if there is not enough mileage driven.

RE: Best TT in the western parks?

Others have addressed your size issues well. For visiting National Parks and the like; equip your rig for dry camping and you will have more options open to you. Most have limited or no sites with hook ups.

RE: Two Easy Questions (hopefully!)

State regulations on rest area stops vary. Most have no problem with a few hours for a quick shut eye. Some allow overnight.

RE: Pantry rack wire baskets? Circa 1995 for Class C: See pic

I would measure the basket and find something of the same size at a home supply or hardware store.

RE: TT camping in Biloxi

Cajun RV Park is nice and where I stay when in the area. Across Beach Blvd. from the beach.

RE: LA-12/US-190

Have not been on LA12 but US190 is generally good. Not sure where you are heading, but the I10 construction between the state line and Beaumont is worse then the Sulphur area.

RE: Water Filter Cartridge Replacement

Visit your nearest big box home supply (Lowes, Home Depot, etc) or hardware and pick a cartridge of the same size for the type of filtering you are most interested in doing.

RE: Getting Started - Longer Distance Camping

On the stocking of supplies and clothing. Stock food and clothing as you would for that period of time if you were at home. Since you are going to Colorado be sure to include some cool weather clothes, even in summer. Plan to use one day per week for grocery shopping, laundry and housekeeping.

RE: Follow-up to my frozen refrigerator....

Back in the day when absorption refrigerators were common in homes, that was a standard fix when they got out of kilter.

RE: Puma trailers. Any good?

I have a 2018 25RLS and quality is on par with others. If buying new expect, to have a variety of problems crop up regardless of make or model.

RE: Hwy TX 6

Unless you are actually wanting to go Galveston and Arizona is your destination or origin I would avoid Houston with a more northerly route like US290 and TX 105. Personally I do not consider Houston a problem using I10 straight thru on weekends.

RE: Fiber glassing question

For a grab bar, your plan is next best compared to thru bolting. I would not trust any adhesive in that application. Make sure the deck is squeaky clean before doing the glass work.

RE: Dometic refrigerator frost and ice

Quite normal. Unlike home refers, RV units do not have a defrost cycle.

RE: Fredericksburg Tx

I have stayed a Lady Bird Johnson Municipal Park Campground several times. Part of the municipal park complex with access to trails, pool and golf course. Nice and well maintained.

RE: Turlock California to Orlando FL in 12/21

Ditto of Paw Paw. If you are wanting to include the Keys; the time to make reservations there is now.

RE: How difficult to install new brake drums

It is unlikely you would need new drums unless they have gotten scored by bad brake shoes. The shoes however, would need to be changed if they are worn. The easy way is to replace the backing plate and shoes as an assembly; especially if you want to upgrade to self adjusting.

RE: Suburban Water Heater gas will not shut off

DO NOT MESS AROUND WITH A LP GAS LEAK. There are only two solutions to this. Either replace the valve or disconnect and plug the gas line.

RE: Routes around Houston TX

Best route time wise is strait thru on the weekend. The Galveston route is about the same mileage wise but you spend time with the ferry crossing. The TX105 route is substantially longer.

RE: Louisiana State Parks

Lake Charles area was hard hit by two storms so I would not expect parks there to open very soon. Grand Isle and New Orleans area - I would check with the individual park nearer the time of your trip. As for the rest of the state there are no problems.
