If you have a son or daughter use their address as home but have your billing address your mail forwarding address.

RE: Indianapolis I-465 rush hour

Shoot 65 through the city unless there's construction everyone is trying to get out of the city. Only time I got hung up there was a multi car wreck at the south 65 465 interchange.

RE: How Long?

We're on our sixth year and have no plans to stop anytime soon. As far as that perfect place we'll need to win the lotto and have perfect places all over the USA to suit our mood and the weather.

RE: What kind of heater?

We're not using the furnace for a couple of reasons. First it's 25yrs old and I don't trust it. Then there's the fact that I'll be paying for 110 so why not use it instead of my LP. I do understand that we'll have to allow for the 12amp draw. We're planning a mountain trip next spring/summer and I'm not sure how cold it will get, but I do know it WILL be cold at times. We are in the Midwest so we will do a little cold weather testing here, this fall. The furnace works if push comes to shove. Using it would probably mean me staying up "on watch", but it would keep the place warm. The engine and drive train are 25 years old as well. Do you trust them? Why not have the furnace inspected by a professional and if given the OK use it. We use a couple 1500 watt ceramic heaters and they are fine when the temps are require a bit of heat but when it gets below 32 it's time for the furnace.

RE: Anybody installed air ride or air shocks for trailer?

I'm considering installing air shocks on trailer. I would really like a air ride system, but I guess they aren't available for a trailers. Or at least I haven't found one yet. We have about the same amount of bounce that most people have, nothing really bad. But all that wear takes it toll over time. And our roads are not getting any better, that I've found. I know tire air pressure and rear kitchens have it worse (back of bus effect). Several trips now I filled up a glass of water and put in sink, was surprised how much bounced out. Wondering if you've installed them if almost most of bounce was eliminated? We have centerpoint air ride on our fiver. https://www.google.com/webhp?sourceid=chrome-instant&ion=1&espv=2&ie=UTF-8#q=center%20point%20air%20ride%20suspension%20system

RE: Going North on 101 From Tillamook Need Advice Where 2 Stay

Best laid plans... We are on the first leg of a major trip clockwise trip around the US and have hit a snag.... We did not take into account the fact that schools do not start until after Labor Day up here. Just about everything up here is Booked.. We will be leaving Tillamook Sunday morning. There are a few State Parks we will try along with suggestions from ya'll I need help on where we can stay. We are small and can boondock anywhere problem is finding places that it is OK to stay. ie; Parking Lots, Churches, Hospitals, places of business etc. Thanks for your time..... Go to RV Circle Creek RV Park in Seaside. The RV park is about 1/2 south of the town of Seaside on your left hand side. They have full hook sites as well as a large dry camping field if the full sites are full. Ask for Sharon 503-738-6070. Tell her Dick referred you. The KOA by Fort Stevens State park is a zoo and has outrageous prices IMHO:) Those of you who love KOA parks and feel they meet your needs, thats great. Don't get your feelers upset with my choice.:):) +1 That's where we sent folks when we volunteered at Haystack Rock.

RE: Does your fridge maintain the same temp on AC & Propane?

My Dometic runs better on propane when on AC I turn it up a notch to keep the ice cream solid.

RE: Alaska Caravan

We are just returning from Alaska, Let me say this it's hard to get lost there is basically 1 road that goes around in a circle with a couple of spurs that run into the ocean or a dead end in nowhere. We kept running into the same people at various stops because everyone goes to the same stops because that is why you go to Alaska. Another piece of information while driving in Alaska you are either five minutes early or five minutes late to see wildlife on or near the road. We're already talking about returning.

RE: RV Park Recommendations Near Denali

We stayed at Cantwell Rv Park down at the Denali Highway Junction. It's 27 miles south but not as crowded as those closer to the park.

RE: Smelly water

You probably have a porcelain lined Suburban water heater with the anode in it. You probably left it setting to long and the water soured and that along with the anode in place will give you a nasty sulphur or rotten egg smell. Just drain it and flush it out a couple of times and you'll be ready to go again. +1

RE: To Plan or not to plan campgrounds

We don't make reservations, we are fulltimers, we stop early and in five years only once had to change our planned stopping point. Didn't know an air show was nearby. We have just spent a month traveling Alaska without reservations life is more flexible that way. We will call early to ensure that a site is available on the day of arrival but we are usually not more than 3 hrs away.

RE: best portable generator for TT

I suggest one or a pair of 2000watt gens. If cost is a factor buy one of the name brands and upgrade to a second when need or funds allow. We have two 2000watt gens but only use 1 90% of the time, but have the capacity to run the other when needed.

RE: Michigan to Florida

I assume that with a lightweight you'll have it winterized and plan on over nighting in motels, smart thinking. I75 will work fine and a motel will work fine and won't cost much more than trying to setup and warmup a very cold RV. I guarantee many more Motels open than RV parks. We wintered in north central Florida our first year fulltiming, few nights in upper 20's,warm days with sun beat the he!! out of northern Il. Enjoy.

RE: Extra Things to do regarding the RV?

Fulltiming 5 1/3 years volunteering 9 months each year USFW, ACE, USFS, state parks, we have always had full hookups or equivalent. Hours required as few as 15 per week to as many as 32, this was our last volunteer assignment in Alaska. Most are 24hrs per person for a couple or 32 for a single. As a couple we have always had the same hrs though we did not necessarily work together. Our longest vol position was 7 months our shortest was 6 weeks. Most are 3-3 1/2 months. We find this the best way to spend our retirement, traveling to places we want to explore and getting to learn about the uniqueness of each area we visit. We're not rich or poor but we get much more than a RV site, life is a learning experience and we gain knowledge at every position we've taken.
