RE: Banff, Lake Louise and Jasper, Alberta

Every one is different, but that would be plenty of time for us. Be sure to take a slow drive on 1A between Banff and Lake Louise and you just might see these grazing beside the road! width=550 width=550

RE: Too old to drive ?

Someone who has never met you can not offer any help with your personal situation. A combination of your own opinion and that of a close relative or close friend who has observed your driving and willing to give you their honest opinion, and whose opinion you are willing to believe, is the only way to make a valid decision. I had a brother in law, now deceased, whose driving at under 60 yrs of age I would be scared of. But my mother and my mother in law both were good drivers into their late 80's.

RE: campground reservations

Overnight stops in non touristy areas, call a day or two in advance. Tourist destinations, now if you want to stay at particular parks.

RE: Autopay anyway!

I agree with above. Your credit card company will hold payment and go back to GS and contest the charge.

RE: Ford Roadside Assistance

I used the Ford warranty roadside service twice, once each on two different trucks. Both times they were quick and efficient. Been a number of years ago, but at the time they were using Coach-net as their provider. Don’t know about now.

RE: Tyler Texas area dry campoing

Tyler SP. Don't plug in and your dry camping. Tyler State Park is great. But you would still have to pay the $22/$26/$30 fee.

RE: 3rd Issue of RV Magazine

Like so many other printed material (newspapers, magazines, etc) it is a last gasp attempt to reinvent itself before it dies away. There are far less of all types printed material now than just a few years ago. Except maybe junk mail. But even that is slowly going away.

RE: Will it be difficult to find a reliable 5er on a 20K budget

Lots of older 5ers are still in great condition. Just a matter of finding one and carefully inspecting it. I have a 2007 34’ Montana that is lightly used for its age and in very good condition. Someone will get a very good trailer a few thousand below $20k when I get ready to sell. Which may be in the near future since our travel has been severely curtailed by other factors.

RE: Fry's Electronics shutting down 30 stores in 9 states

I never really bought a lot there. But I knew that most likely I could find what I did want. Will miss just browsing their store.

RE: 2021 Yellowstone / Teton Road Trip

Have you checked Headwaters Campground at Flagg Ranch between Teton and Yellowstone?

RE: New Ford 150s Save the Day in Texas

How big are the generators in those? Different sizes? There are three different ones available depending on the engine. They have a 2.0 kw for most F150s. And a 2.4 kw or the optional much larger 7.2 kw generators on the hybrid F150s.

RE: CC&R dated 1973 says no RVs, trailers, boats can be stored

As to whether the CC&R are enforceable, you are not going to get the answer here. You will have to go to the city and find out who and if any enforcement can and will be done.

RE: Where would my LP regulator leak?

Look for a very small vent hole in the regulator. If the membrane in the regulator is leaking, the propane will escape thru that hole. My regulator was turned in a position I could not see the vent hole and could not get soapy water on it. Therefore no bubbles. Took the regulator off and there was oily residue around that vent. Replaced the regulator and all good.

RE: New Ford 150s Save the Day in Texas

Some Ford dealers were loaning out their hybrid F150s with the larger generators for homes/ with no power.

RE: Why is 5th wheel standard vs Gooseneck?

Why is a gooseneck harder on the trailer frame than a 5er? Is it because the length of the neck down to the ball is longer than a 5er? We are thinking of going from a TT to a 5er, and just trying to learn. It isn't with a modern gooseneck adaptor like a Reese Goose Box. it would have to be to maintin the trailer high while mounting in the ball in the floor of the bed. your mising the whole hight of the 5th wheel hitch it has to make up for. Steve The additional torque of a gooseneck adapter would be greatest during acceleration and deceleration. But the air bag, shock absorbers, and rubber bumpers of a Goosebox would soften that impact vs a rigid gooseneck adapter.

RE: Problems with 7 Pin Connector

Had similar problem. I have two factory 7 pin connectors on the truck, bumper and in-bed. The 7 pin trailer cord worked fine plugged into the bumper connector, but was intermittent plugged into the in-bed connector. After messing with it a long time and never getting much better, I just replace the in-bed connector and no more problem.

RE: Montana HC vs Heritage Glen 1500lb Diff?

Can't answer your question. But I guess the first thing I would compare would be the frames for that much extra weight. May be that the HC has larger I beam frame.

RE: Why is 5th wheel standard vs Gooseneck?

.......... Most of the RV's on the market have frames made by Lippert. Lippert endorses the use of the Reese Goose Box with their frames so apparently the frames don't need to be any heavier or cost anymore than they already do......... . They endorse the Goosebox because it has an air bag and shock absorber like the air ride pin boxes to reduce the road shock to the frame.

RE: Why is 5th wheel standard vs Gooseneck?

I agree with both of above. Easier hookup since it is self aligning side to side and stops and self latches when the pin is all the way inserted. And no safety chains required. And the manufacturers don’t have to build the frame as structurally strong, meaning less expensive. Broken frame welds is not uncommon even with a 5th wheel hitch. That is why some manufacturers say they will void the warranty if you use a gooseneck adapter.

RE: Ford Going All Electric in 2030 Too...

I'll be 91 if lucky and probably won't be driving anymore... Meh. You won’t have to. Autonomous driving will do that for you. Autonomous driving will allow people to stay active in their communities much longer. Or you can just key-in to your Cybertruck towing vehicle to meet you at the campground while you fly and take Uber.:B All of which will be autonomous, including the all electric airplane. :B
