RE: flat towing a toad

I have a 2011 Fusion Hybrid that I flat tow and just bought a 2020 Escape Hybrid that I will set up to flat tow. I believe that most hybrids are flat towable and I know that the 2 I have are easy to tow.

RE: Purchasing question

I just did this with my TT. It is real scary to let someone have your TT But you have to have faith or do it at a bank. He give me a Cashiers check and I called the CU it was issued at and used the phone# from an internet search and called them to verify it when it was good I signed a Bill Of Sale. the buyer was just worried as I am I don't have the title and I will send it when it comes from the county and then I will send it registered Mail w/return receipt. I look at it this way he has the TT and I have the title. Other than it's a leap of Faith.

RE: Driving 89A (Arizona) from Bitter springs to Fredonia ?

I did it with a 36' MH back when 89 was closed due to a slide and it was a little stressful there are NO shoulders NO fuel. Would I do it again NO NO. But if you have no choice do it.

Silde adjustment

I have a through the frame Slides they are both tight to the top and 1'to 1 1/2" out at the bottom I have looked at the Lippert manual for adjustments but when I adjust the can the problem gets worse is there a way to adjust the level so it is more or less plumb to the sidewall. The slides are tearing the blub seals at the top and barely touching the bottom. I have searched you tube but nothing. I am thinking I made need to lower the slide from the frame bracket. Thanks for the help

RE: Just bought my first travel trailer

My Reflection is 10995 GVWR and I pull it with a F250 diesel and get about 10-12, I live in Colorado and travel at attitude. I would never pull a trailer that size without a diesel. I swap the factory fuel tank out and put in a Titan 50 gal.JMHO

RE: 6.7 cummins HP

I went and test drove 300hp Palazzo today and I was a little surprised how well it went up I-70 from golden to evergreen it was slow at times it hit about 55MPH most the time on the grades but better than a gas engine screaming at 4500 RPM and loud.

6.7 cummins HP

Looking at getting a MH and wondering how the 6.7L cummins with 340 HP preforms in the rocky mountains. Since I do most of my travels in and around the Rockies. I am looking at the Forza 34t and maybe the Palazzo 33.2 both have 26k GVWR. This is more about the HP than the MH, but I welcome comments on both.

RE: Looking for info on TSD Logistics

I was looking at this as well, are there any other places than truck stops that this works at?

RE: 5th wheel cover selection help

I wouldn't waste my money on a cover, the storage lot my TT is at people use them and by the end of winter most of them are torn up and lying on the ground, save your money and just do a good wax job.

Heat strip

Anyone put a heat strip in there Coleman AC? Is it worth the money or just a waste of money?

RE: black plastic waste pipe

You can not unglue, You can however cut it and use no hub clamps from your local Home Depot or Lowes. I did this with mine so I could replace the 3" waste valve. Just make sure you cut it straight as possible.

RE: Colorado to Maine

do I take I70 instead of I80? We have found I-70 preferable to I-80 across the middle of the country. Generally a lot less truck traffic and the road seems in better shape (probably because of less truck traffic). There's more to do in Springfield than just Lincoln's Grave. Lincoln Home NHS is definitely worth your time, as is the Lincoln Library. If you're going to Acadia from Niagara Falls, head east through the Adirondacks and the White Mountains (maybe take the Kancamagus Highway or US 302 through Crawford Notch). We're not big fans of big cities, esp. when towing. To visit Boston, we stayed at Shawme-Crowell State Forest not far from the Cape Cod Canal. (Scusset Beach State Reservation was closed at the time). Took the train into Boston. Also could visit the Cape. Took a day trip on the ferry to Martha's Vineyard. Rented some cruiser bicycles to tour the beaches. Newport RI has some amazing "cottages" (OK, mansions) right along the coast. The Cliff Walk allows you to walk along the amazing shoreline and look up at these amazing homes. Mystic Seaport, CT is an interesting place to stop and get a primer on seafaring in the 18th and 19th centuries. Great for mountain dwellers like us. Lots of historic vessels. Of all the big east coast cities to visit, Washington D.C. is #1 on our list. If you have the time and haven't been there, go! Plan on several days and just pick a few museums and monuments to visit. You can't see it all even with lots of days to do it. Other places to consider: Williamsburg, VA Steamtown NHS near Scranton, PA Monicello (what an amazing diversity of interests Jefferson had) Gettyburg, PA Since you "only" have a month, I'd make a beeline across the central part of the country out and back to concentrate on the sites in the east (although Springfield, IL is definitely a must do). The last time we went out, we rode Amtrak and took our tent and sleeping bags. Two days of train travel each direction then rented a car for a month. Still rushed (did spend five full days in D.C.). The DW is from Mass. so I have seen a lot of the stuff around Boston and surrounding areas. I have done DC and Gettysburg already.I don't have a month I am retired so I was just guessing at a time frame. But I do welcome all suggestions.

Colorado to Maine

I am planning a 2020 fall trip from Colorado to Maine, with stops at Rv Hall of Fame and Museum, maybe a GD factory tour, Niagara Falls, Cooperstown, Hyde Park NY(FDR), Lincolns grave site, Acadia. I really don't want to do the tolls but if I have to I will(would like to spend money on other things). Should I get an EZ pass? or do I take I70 instead of I80? Any suggestions for other stops? I am thinking this is a month or so trip.

RE: 70 through Colorado

Do you have a diesel? If so it will be a little faster the uphill climbs will so you down some. I tow a 10000 lbs TT with a diesel and I can go up most of the hills around 50-60 mph, But I have lived in Colorado all my life so I am very comfortable towing in the mountains. There are really 2 different spots that will slow you down going up to Eisenhower tunnel and Vail Pass.
