RE: Roll Call Alaska 2015

We drove up from Tok to Chicken thought we would get away from the Long Lake and Chrisana II fire but the smoke is as bad or worse up here. A fellow said there was a fire up by Eagle? may just be smoke from the Dot Lake fire, haven't heard of one near Eagle.

RE: Leveling A Fifth Wheel

A properly installed fifthwheel hitch should be 2" in front of the axle. Yes the weight is on the rear axle and should not unload the front axle at all.

RE: Shorter luxury fifth wheel

I would look at Arctic Fox not the most luxurious but a good fiver and good four season.

RE: Counting down and domicile questions

The only reason we left Illinois and relocated to SD was that we were in the Chicago Metro area and did not want to return for Air Quality vehicle testing. If you are not on Medicare or have nationwide health coverage, SD the last I read did not offer any nationwide health care plans. We have BCBS from retirement plan so that does not bother us. If I were you I'd stay in Illinois. We did save a little on vehicle insurance it covers the cost of the mail service.

RE: Just Wondering

Because of the lack of standard RV utilities (water, 50 amp electric, sewer) this volunteer assignment would not very attractive to most. It certainly wouldn't work for us but there are many who would enjoy the isolation.

RE: tire question... HELP!!

We drove 4000 miles before replacing tires with a gouge out of one. We replaced because of age not tread wear.

RE: Roll Call Alaska 2015

We have taken a break from our duties at Tetlin VC took a road trip down to Valdez. We had had reports of beautiful weather here but as expected it has turned to the worse, rain for the next three days. I feel like the 2 years we spent on the Oregon coast, we'll make the best of it.

RE: Alaska from Montana - May 2015

Just start heading North you'll meet someone in a campground and be most likely stopping at the came campgrounds along the way, we did and spent some enjoyable time with them.

RE: At What Point Does Size Matter?

We fulltime in a 35 foot fiver never had a problem finding a site but we do most of our traveling during the off season and stay put volunteering both north/summer and south/winter so our sites then are no problem. With all that we don't always have the choice sites in state parks due to length.

RE: Paved Routes

We just came up the Alaskan Highway. It's true not all the bad spots are marked but if your driving and not gawking at the scenery you will see the tire marks ahead where folks either slammed on their brakes or the rubber skid left when they landed.

RE: Need advice on Canada to Alaska route

We entered CA at Sweetgrass Mt so I can't help there, we did take the trip through Bamff NP and up through the Icefield Parkway there is only one long pull that slowed us down that's right before the Visitors Center. Hope you have better weather than we had rain, snow, and fog. We didn't see much, maybe next time. Watch out for the Elk at Jasper they cross where they want to.

RE: Well, Made a decision

When you add a little weight to the pin with your stuff it may settle down. Enjoy your new mobile cabin.

RE: Roll Call Alaska 2015

We saw plenty of wildlife in BC a little before Muncho Lake and plenty after it. Bears 7-8 the wife kept count one was a grizzly for sure and another could have been. Sheep on the side of the road and on the hills above, many woods bison, Caribou, a wolf, eagles, hawks, snowshoe bunnies still changing to summer camo. Keep the windows clean and the camera ready, pull off don't block traffic, we did have to slow down for Caribou on the road.

RE: Do you or don't you?

I find these threads so funny. We've been fulltime five years and DW will not use public facilities if we are near the fiver. We have camp hosted where she cleans the public use facilities, she still will not use them. I was a carpenter and did kitchen and bath remodels for many years and pulled toilets during those jobs, did not re-install that was the plumbers purview. Worked construction with nasty port a potties, hey ya gotta go ya gotta go. We stopped on our way to Alaska at Banff NP in Alberta, when pulling out we had to wait in line to dump. The guy in front of us put on gloves, nice and sanitary , while his wife filled the fresh water tank. When he was finished he called her over and proceeded to stick the fresh water hose into the slinky to rinse it, she then went back to filling the fresh water. That's gross! If OP doesn't want to use his facilities he should pull the potty and have storage for whatever.

RE: your rig

We bought our fulltime 5er used been in it for 5 years it's now eleven years old plan on keeping it till I win the lotto or the wheels fall off then buy another good used unit. We have replaced a few things, new window coverings in BR, DW wants new carpet and window coverings in the living room. We really like the floorplan.

RE: 2015 F350 DW Questions

What's a DW when used in the same sentence as a Ford truck? Only reference I have seen about a DW is Dear Wife, Da* Wife, etc... Could be referring to DRW and made a small error typing, some of us make mistakes.

RE: Roll Call Alaska 2015

We have arrived at Beaver Creek,YT. Had planned to spend the night at Destruction Bay with hopes of seeing some Dall Sheep but the campground we planned to stay at was closed. Just as well the travel from Destruction Bay is rougher than a cob with construction ongoing. If you wear false teeth secure them. If your rig is dirty don't bother cleaning it till after you pass this section. Will cross back to the USA in the morning and cheaper beer pricing. Stop in and see us at Tetlin NWR six miles in from the border. Safe Travels.

RE: Buying an RV... How long has it been on the lot?

Just ask the salesguy , he'll tell ya (insert sarcasm here) "just hit the lot a day or two ago" I've been at a few RV lots and them saying a few days and there was cobwebs from the tires to the ground... Spiders work fast.

RE: Roll Call Alaska 2015

Made it to Watson Lake. The roads are in good shape just watch the flagged areas. One stretch of heavy construction notice is given well in advance. Several smaller areas but no problem 5-10 minute wait for your direction travel. Diesel 1.39 liter. We have not been turned down for swipe cards and have learned how the chipped card is used. See ya when you get here.
