RE: Inflatable Kayaks

Any thoughts on these? Thinking about a two man version. We could occasionally use some sort of boat but don't want to haul a full size one around. Nothing too energetic paddling around lakes and such. We have a fold-boat at home but it's just too much trouble to haul around with the motor and fuel. Need to sell it actually. We have a Hobi 2 person inflatable . Good quality but I have to admit on the pricey side.

RE: Galveston camp grounds.

We spent the first week of April just south of Galveston at Bluewater RV Resort and really liked it. Short drive to Galveston or Freeport. Good size spaces & beach just across the hiway.

RE: SE Michigan to Texas in July

I need a good route to a NE suburb of Houston from I75 area south of Flint, MI towing a 5th wheel in July. Get to I40, then I30 to US 59 at Texarkana to Lufkin then 69 on into NE Houston. Good roads, avoids Dallas. However make sure you have GOOD tires as it's hot in July.

RE: 5th wheel hitches

What the OP is requiring in his post is the ideal application for an Andersen. HER post LOL! I write, hubby researches the technical stuff and has decided on a B&W hitch. As a former Andersen cheerleader getting the B&W is the smartest thing you could do . I use a B&W Patriot on a Curt X-Rail and the only upgrade I would think about is one of the air ride hitches.

RE: toll charges

PawPaw mentioned 259 in eastern Ok and we travel that route from Tx to our Arkansas land. Very pretty drive thru the Ouachita's but it does have a few steep grades.

RE: toll charges

The Indian Nation toll road---what would be the charge for a travel trailer/tow vehicle from Henryetta to Hugo? I've never heard of this route before. Thanks... Is Hugo the final destination or you just passin thru ? Maybe some no toll roads & prettier scenery on another route.

RE: removing shades & valance

On my Jayco, the screws for the blind/ shade are on the front of the top of the shade going up. The valance mounted by L brackets that the top ones only can be removed after the blind is out.

RE: Texas winterizing...

My electricity or natural gas had absolutely NO interruption. Y'all explain how to plan for temps as much as 63 d F below avg & make it reliable at 105 or hotter which we have more warm days than any cold ones . I've been running my AC for nearly a week now.

RE: CC&R dated 1973 says no RVs, trailers, boats can be stored

First off no way would I buy that house with that neighbor. 2nd, Its Louisiana so the rules are very different but over here in Tx those CCR's if in unincorporated sub-divisions usually have a fine print note that they go away with the sale of the last lot. I know from a lot I bought that had restrictions as to size/materials etc and a couple years after last lot sold an owner started putting in mobile homes to rent & not a dang thing could be done

RE: Yoko Geolander GO15 A/T LT Tires ... Any good.??

RE: Best Cell Phone App

While it sounds good to use your phone and an app to navigate but you will be happier with a Garmin for RVs. Garmin is the best of a so so bunch. Yes you will have an additional piece of hardware but money well spent. I agree 100%. I travel from East Tx to NW Arkansas several times yearly goin thru eastern Ok. No cell service in many Ok/Ar areas. Not saying don't get an App just have other navigation tools including an old fashion map.

RE: Again Texas Fails Its Citizens

Funny, I'm sitting here with no interruption in either my electricity or natural gas service. Now that could change tonite as the possibility of ice storms instead of this snow , which we very seldom have snow and especially the 10 in in my yard. Not all of Tx is on that one grid, AEP-Swepco that supplies my electricity here at my house & also supplies the rural co-op at my little farm is on a totally different grid. My Son in Benbrook by FtWorth has not lost power either Correct me if wrong but cities like Austin mandated heatpumps & no more natural gas heated homes so the electric demand went way up

RE: 4 degrees in Dallas!

It was MINUS 6 deg F at 6AM this morning & I live 120 miles east of Dallas. I'll take our 100 anytime over this ice age start. The utilities are asking everyone to lower their thermostats to low 60's.

RE: Not a Great Week for Travel

I would fly, even paying last second, first class fares before I missed my grand child's wedding. If I had to, I'd sell my RV to pay for it. A lot of airlines ( I know American has a sale on ) have got some $99 ea way fares

RE: CDL Required to Drive Class A?

How many people do you know or have heard of that were cited for wrong class of license (who were operating an RV for leisure) ?? What states don't have reciprocity with other states in licensing (non-commercial vehicles?? I don't think you will find Joe from any state getting shut down in any other state because he has a MH with air brakes and that state requires a special license to drive with air. On another rv forum about a year ago there was a guy gripping about being cited for wrong license driving a big MH pulling a Jeep here in Tx. So it can happen, very rare but with tax revenues down might be " easy Pickens " for revenue As long as You have the CORRET license for your state your good . If I was stopped in say California my Class A nonCDL is valid. All the other rules such as length or chains on ball hitch's etc. still apply within each state.

RE: CDL Required to Drive Class A?

OP might look carefully at the Ok CDL handbook for " exceptions to the exemptions " . That's where here in Tx you find out about our A & B endorsement. The noncommercial handbook here just says RV's exempt from CDL. Confusing for sure. Per our close friend that does commercial truck safety compliance for TxDPS the non-CDL licenses is part of states signing on to the Fed FMCA rules.

RE: I69 to 288 Houston

Thanks everyone. Per Trip Planner the Madisonville route adds 2 1/2 hrs to our destination of Bluewater RV Park. We will be going that way home as we are stopping in Sealy to visit my Wife's Sister. I'm not afraid of driving in heavy traffic . I just prefer to avoid it if at all possible when towing our 5er.
