RE: ALASKA! Driving from California to Anchorage...

With good weather plan on 50MPH or less due to road conditions and no issues. 1. Met a couple with a bent 5er hitch and they were in day 19. 2. Another dropped a trailer axle. 3. Another was hung up in Fairbanks with issues. 4. And another had engine issues in Haines which was beyond local help. He decided to take the Ferry to Vancouver Island. Just the ones I knew about. Your sure a buzz killer. How many thousands made the trip without problems?

RE: Things to see Places to stay South to North Indiana

Like contemporary architecture Columbus Indiana a city of 50,000 orso is famous for great world class architecture. You would be a short distance from Brown County State Park for camping and also Nashville Indiana. A small town but areal tourist stop.

RE: Question 2 - TV Upgrade Hitch Question

If you brought a truck without the puck system and had a complete B&W system installed you would see your hole is square for either their gooseneck or their companion hitch. I have never had need for a gooseneck but one comes with the under bed frame attachments.

RE: Carrying extra fuel in Canada

I can tell you've never been north. With our previous 5er I carried an extra 10 gal of diesel and 10 gal of gas for the generator. There were plenty headed for the back country that looked like they were going to open their own fuel stations. The key is fillup whwn your at the 1/2 full mark or 1/2 empty unless you're headed for the bush your good

RE: Leveling Jack Creaking/Popping

As you get older and your hearing worsens the only snap crackle and pop will be your joints. Fork oil and silicone won't stop that.

RE: Midway campground in Big Cypress Preserve

Did you have the right address or Lat and Long digits? Your right the dark of night and rain make travel difficult. That is why we always plan to be off the road long before sundown. Eleven years fulltime and only once have we pulled in after sundown.

RE: Adding extra batteries - where do I put them?

We don't boondock often but we have spent 12 weeks in Alaska using generators as our source of power and have used them occasionally for a day or three in forest service and national parks. I have two 2000 watt Powerhorse they weigh about 50lb or so with gas and oil. I'm 70+ the two balance me out, one 3000 weighs 140#. A hernia waiting to happen. Nice thing is if you only need 2000 wt you only crank one up. We have a residential fridge and 2 6 vt deep cell batteries.

RE: Recreation.gov

Pick a campground all the information is available online. I use Recreation.gov regularly the only thing I have a problem is a lack of photos of campsites at some campgrounds. You can sometimes counter that by checking https://www.campsitephotos.com/ Trees always those dam trees.

RE: Feedback on Solitude

Only time would have liked a dishwasher in our rig was when the wife slipped on a trail and broke her wrist.

RE: Best truck for large 5th Wheel

Not to sound like weight police but I like to go by weight. What is the gross weight of the 5er? Now there are those that will tell you need to leave 10% padding on your vehicle. I assume the engineers already figured that in so I don't see the reasoning in that. My sig shows what I have pulls like a dream don't even know its back there most of the time,

RE: Campground availability for next summer

There are destination campgrounds which are the ones you want reservations at. Those would be National Parks or other points of interest and make reservations sometime months in advance. Overnight stops should be secured a day or two before. The wife hates Interstates so we travel the blue roads and find many towns or counties have rv campgrounds. We use freecampsites.net.
