RE: First time with the camper on the dually...amazed so far.

Congrats on the new truck. Tire pressure should be on the door/pillar sticker.

RE: Taking an RV to Alaska

The only bad section of the Alaska highway was between Destruction Bay and Beaver Creek. It was bad going up in May of 2015 and worse coming back down in late August. As far as flagged and unflagged frost heaves, your view from a pickup or MH, decent vision and following the speed limit you should have no problem. There were several areas of road construction on the Alaska road system that were more of a slowdown than a real problem.

RE: B&W 3400 Slider. Does it Clunk...work in Ram Puck system?

I'm not sure what the model is but I'm getting an 18K B/W Companion hitch installed in my 2014 2500 Ram tomorrow. They are using the single hole in the middle of the bed in conjunction with the support that runs under the bed. So, I have no rails or anything other than the single connection point in the middle of the bed. Is this single attachment point considered the "puck" system being talked about or is the puck system the 4 attachment points? I sure hope I don't end up with some annoying clunk considering this thing cost north of $2000 installed. The single attachment is the way it was before the truck manufactures started offering the puck system. I've had the single B&W attachment for close to 6 years and 50,000 miles towing without a problem.

RE: Canadian Travel

We have both passports and the passport auto cards, the card is convenient and easy to carry in your wallet. I think some of the replies to your post misunderstand what a Passport Card is.

RE: 4 lights stopped working

Thank you for that and it seems there is a problem in the fixture. I did find a blown fuse and replaced it but then blew the replacement when changing the bulb. Something the light fixture seems to be shorting it out so will look to see about a replacement fixture and see if that does solve the problem We had the same problem four 12 volt lights and bathroom fan not working. After a half dozen fuses it turned out to be the last light on the line and it was the bulb that was causing the short. New bulb and good to go.

RE: Towing capacity guide?

I agree, you should be able to get info online. Another idea, is go to some area dealerships and look at actual trucks. They will have door panel stickers with actual ratings for the given truck. IMO, you will need a 350/3500 SRW diesel, as a minimum. With nearly 40' length, a DRW would likely be the better tool. If you don't want DRW, look closely at SRW ratings, payload, axles, and max tire ratings. Jerry The problem with just checking the door stickers is that most dealer stock have the lower gvw. Dealers rather have flash on the floor to sell than utility.

RE: New to workamping, looking for tax advice

Your self employment tax won't be any different, in the long run better to both get credit for future SS benefits.

RE: Cooler Unit Replacement - New or Refurbished?

When mine went, there was no doubt in my mind; new unit. If I'm going to put in all that labor, I'm putting in a new unit. +1

RE: New 5th Wheel ------ Do I pay sales tax in Ohio???

We purchased our 5er in Kansas had to sign a waiver statement that the rig was NOT going to be registered in Kansas. Had to pay sales tax in Illinois before they would title it there.

RE: Core of Engineers camping

We've stayed at several USACE parks we're over 53' and usually don't unhook the TV. Most have been west of Mississippi but not all.

RE: Changing oil and engine idling after long trips?

Let see I pull in late in the afternoon, site is level, drop landing gear, hookup, have a cool one. Next morning, unhook, raise landing gear, start engine, buckle seat belt, idle out to highway and hit the road.

RE: High season Oregon coast RV park monthly rates

It's a short season and very popular. Isn't that why you want to spend the summer there?

RE: 'Volunteering at state and federal park

I have volunteered at both a federal park and wildlife refuge liked them both very much. There was little hoopla involved in applying for these posts However, when I applied for a kayak leader position at a south Texas wildlife refuge, they wanted me to fill out an application that looked like I was applying for a federal security clearance. I was asked to list all jobs over last 20 years (including references), places I resided over the same period with names of neighbors, etc. I trashed it. NO ONE needs to know that much about me, least of all the feds. They already have access to all that information, they just want to know how forthcoming you are.

RE: Flush King

Here's how I flush my black tank, I fill up two five gallon buckets from the shower spray, go out and open the black tank valve listen to it flowing, go back in and dump the two buckets down the toilet, go out and close the valve. Takes longer to fill the buckets than to flush.

RE: Motorhome/Toad vs Truck-Trailer/Chase Car

For us the chase car is the way to go. We fulltime and volunteer about 9 mos of the year at maybe three different locations. We use FRS units to communicate and as tailgunner DW can open up lane changes in heavy traffic. In the five years we've shaved 37,000 miles off the tow vehicle usage, fuel costs are a wash because of travel miles. We do enjoy the convenience of city driving and parking, never would have taken the truck into NYC as we did with our Focus. For us the Focus was paid for and only had 80,000 miles on it so the cost is basic maintenance and insurance. My thought too is that diesels are not intended for light duty where they never get up to operating temps.

RE: Replacing vent covers

Funny, just ordered 2 replacement vent covers minutes ago from Amazon 14.99 each. I'll handle the replacement myself.
