RE: No power to water heater (Gas OR Electric)

There is a control board that may have gone to the electric graveyard. Small box 3x5x3/4 with wires going to HW and through the walls or basement to the switchs that turn on gas or electric for HW.

RE: Double towing, which 5th wheel hitch?

18k is plenty and if you upgrade to a 15k 5er and your 2,200 boat you would most likly be overweight of the trucks gvw.

RE: Route advise from Wisconsin Dells to Indiana Dunes SP

There is no easy way that is toll free. The I90 to I39 to I80 is the route you want least number of tolls. I believe 3 total $10-12 for 4 axles day time cash rate. I remember when the tolls were 30 cents and the toll road was going to be paid off years ago. You'll want to pickup I94 once in Indiana.

RE: Gray water flush

We have a grey tank flush on our present 5er. We also have a dishwasher and I heard/read somewhere that that is the reason. I guess there are folks that would not bother wiping them of excess food stuffs before tossing them in the dishwasher. Our previous 5er didn't have the grey tank flush, but as fulltimers and often staionary for months I would before making a move close the grey tank and run the waterheater till cold along with several tablespoons of DAWN. Dumping at our next stop and using a clear elbow alot of yuck flushed from the grey. Since we don't use the dishwasher I'll just keep using my old method of flushing the grey.

RE: Booking Banff

Glad you got the time to do all this research. We've spent a couple days at Tunnel Mountain on different occasions. We eschew sat tv and internet while there, too much to do tires us out but applaud your securing a site during prime time.

RE: KOA Membership

Our first campground after we picked up our first RV was at a KOA in Branson MO. They signed us up with a membership and we spent three nights there. We did not stay in another KOA for a 8 months. We never renewed the club membership but we do stay at KOA's when convenient to our plans. We much prefer state and other govt campgrounds USFS, USACE, NP's, BLM.

RE: Zion visitor during the shutdown report

Parks that belong to "We The People" should never be shut down. In fact we shouldn't have to pay to visit what is already ours. Maintenance costs, facilities cost but you know that.

RE: I 10 Louisiana

In '17' we traveled from Jacksonville Fl on I10 to AZ and found the road to be very good except for the Atchafalaya section most of which is elevated and built over swamp. Even that was mostly the concrete joints and more anoying than anything else.

RE: Does RV.net Verification Robot Need Help??

I use this site as much as anybody and have never, ever needed to interact with a verification robot! Why do you? You must be special. :S Many of us do suffer CAPTCHA. :M Most often it happens to me when I quote a previous message, if I post it as a stand alone post it will usually bypass CAPTCHA. Add me to the never ran afowl of the much posted about CAPTCHA.

RE: consumer cellular cell phone

I've been with them for 5 years. I had a ATT plan but it was way more than I needed after retirement. Went with CC and their 100 min plan all I needed and cut my monthly bill by 2/3s.

RE: Convection Microwave vs. Gas Oven

Must be a bunch of boondockers on here worrying about gen noise. We boondocked 13 weeks in AK last summer and only have the gas cooktop and a convection/microwave. Made our Friday night pizza every week and ran the gens to do it. I do believe boondockers are the minority of RVer's and new RV's are constructed and equipted to meet need and expectations of the majority of buyers. That majority will never boondock more than a night or two and for all pratical purposes will run on their batteries or supplement with gen use. As far as cooking/baking with the convection side pizza, bread, pies, meatloaf, casseroles have all come out fine. I do miss using the microwave while having a roast in the oven but even that can be overcome by planning.

RE: Kitchen faucet MH not working.

Does it work when hooked up to city water and not running off the onboard tank and pump?

RE: Lenders that don't require recent comparable purchase?

Check local credit unions. They worked for us.

RE: Gas Cylinders

The recert is good if you don't plan on refilling tanks on a trip through Canada. Their recert is much more intense than what you'll receive from your local supplier.

RE: Quick changing 50 to 30 amp receptacle.

I have on more than one occasion been asked whether I wanted 30 or 50amp site. Depending on the weather or other desires of th DW I'll take the 30amp to save a couple $'s. I go to the assigned site and the post has 20, 30 and 50 amp. Since I didn't pay for the 50 I'll just plug in to the 30 all I need for an overnight.
