RE: Cassiar Highway 2016

As most that travel those roads regularly will state they vary year to year and season to season. Our trip north in 15 was for the most part nothing like the stories so often reported. Sure there were flagged areas and some that should have been that weren't. The latter if your eyes are on the road and your traveling as posted don't present a problem as the tire marks on the road give there own warning so stay alert. As I said went north in mid May and the roads were good but returning in mid August the gravel section from Beaver Creek south to just north of Destruction Bay was the worst washboard I've ever traveled. We returned on the Cassiar which on the north end they were just finishing up with road work and then some active chip sealing south of the Stewart/Hyder cutoff. All in all it was a good trip and we plan on going back in 18.

RE: Windshield washers won't spray

Do you hear the pump? I had the same problem last year. I believe the tech filled my reservoir and didn't replace the cap when I had a oil change. There was some **** that got in it and blocked the flow. I took a piece of clear plastic hose and siphoned the fluid out and it appeared a mouse may have fallen in as it looked like hair that came out. Could be little mouse bones still in the tank but my washers work again.

RE: Truck/Trailer Capabilities/safety - Newb here....

Dually truck and only the very newest are rated to tow and handle the pin weigh of that much trailer. You might be better served to look at motorhomes and tow a small car. A few of the states will require an upgraded license of you are over 26,000# combined weight. Ken A few states require a special licence for towing a trailer over 10,000 gvw.

RE: Camp host rant

We were volunteer camphosts for the first year fulltiming. Not worth a campsite. A camphost is only off duty when he/she is away from the campground, the off duty sign is meaningless. This is the end of the season, do you know the BS this host has dealed with the last 5 months, no you just wanted a fire, so screw the camphost he/she should be there just for you. You have any idea how many extra hours this host has put in over the required number. I assure you it's plenty.

RE: Antenna handle fell off

What hit you in the head first? Try spring washer hand crank.

RE: remove/replace big reefer

I helped a neighbor remove and replace his RV fridge with a samsung. Had to remove the door from the new one, the passenger seat.

RE: No clue on how to winterize

If your not sure you can handle it most RV dealers will do it for you or a mobile rv tech.

RE: Replacing the floor in my Tahoe Transport 5th wheel.

Marine grade plywood it not necessary, it is VERY expensive, like a 4x8 is $75.00. CDX exterior grade sheathing uses water proof glues. The only difference is the exterior layers of marine grade are made to receive a finish like a paint or varnish. CDX contains voids very undisirable when used as a primary flooring, fine for subfloors and sheating. You can do it right or do it cheap but you can't do it both.

RE: Mattress upgrade

No need for custom mattress just google RV Short King Mattress. There are plenty of options.

If your going to replace the TV the new ones receive the new digitl signals so there is no need for a converter. Your antenna will pickup the new signal but there is an attachment that should enhance UHF signal reception. Just google wingman UHF booster. We have Sat and Cable hookup on the 5er but they no longer work I just thread the cable through the slide next to the entertainment center and connect. Works fine except the DW thinks the wire is unsightly.

RE: Replacing the floor in my Tahoe Transport 5th wheel.

I would go with 5/8 inch AB marine grade plywood and closed cell foam insulation board. You'll pay a bit more for the marine plywood but long term it's worth it. I used 3/4 inch when I replaced my slide floors.

RE: Skirting ideas -> any successful DYI results

RE: Newbie here with some hitch questions

I also have the B&W turnball hitch and use the Companion hitch. The sweet part is how eas it is to remove for a flat bed and that the Companion is two parts which for an old guy makes it easier than others.

RE: cleaning out black tank and toilet bowl

All we use is water. Plenty of water is a black tanks friend and yours as well to prevent odors and ensure solid materials, you know what I mean, are flushed when you dump. If you don't have black tank flush for your tank or don't have acess to a water tap as at most dump stations, but do have a nonpotable source as at most dump stations and are not holding up others, I will fill a couple 5 gal buckets to dump through the toilet to flush any remaining solid deposits. I then close the valve, fill another 5 gal bucket and dump that down the comode to prime the black tank. No sanitizers or chemicals are needed. Lets face it you don't pour chemicals down your home toliet unless you have a septic system and then maybe a emzyme digester, though even those are not needed. As for cleaning the toilet bowl, which is not an area of my expertise, DW uses the same as in the home toilet.

RE: Passport book vs Passport card

I see the card as value to the frequent border crosser. We have both never know when an international travel may enter our plans.

RE: Supplimental Medicare Health Insurance

There you have it shop for a Plan F. I know mine BCBS is good nationwide but it's part of my retirement plan and have used it along with medicare in a couple of states other than my domicile.
