RE: Supporting camper with cinder blocks??

I like RR ties. They can be cut to any length and they will not harm the frame.

RE: Big 5 National Parks in Utah

You might be interested in Mountain Directory West to help plan the routes. I always avoid any highway that states `Scenic' on the map.

RE: RVing in the winter

Seems to me that one would use a fair amount of propane in such weather and would need to find somewhere to refill the tanks.

RE: “Must Do” things while in Clearwater Beach, FL

Do a Google search for `Clearwater Beach tourism` or maybe just Clearwater tourism and read what the experts have to recommend.

RE: Drawer latches

Childproof latches for drawers. Get extras because on occasion you will forget they are on and will break them. Worked for us for years. No problem with cabinet doors.

RE: Traveling with ebikes

We carry our ebikes on a rack in the front of our TV without a cover that would obstruct the headlights and license. We cover while camped. We also take the seats off while traveling and while camping. If you haul the bikes on the back of your RV they will get very dirty.

RE: Omaha to Mt Rushmore route through Nebraska?

If you really want to maximize your time there take the bus tour of Rushmore and Crazy Horse.

RE: Best mouse trap?

I think the $1 traps at the local hardware store are the best value. keep setting them until no more mice. a dab of p butter works well. DO NOT POISON them. they will go into crannies to die that you will never be able to reach and the smell will be with you for a year or more.

RE: Not Utilizing RV Parks or Boondocking

I'm thinking you can count on one hand the RVers who do what you suggest. Just my $.03

RE: road trip in Feb or March

Choose the State you would like to visit and do a Google search for `_______ tourism', put the State in the blank and read the suggestions of the experts. How about Colonial Williamsburg?

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

My Wife and I do jigsaw puzzles to pass the time away during this pandemic but it will probably be more productive for you to rebuild the Pace Arrow to pass the time. BTW puzzles cost about $15 each probably less than the cost for the rebuild!

Accessing the Forum topics

For years I have accessed this Forum topics by clicking on the NEW category and was fat and happy. Lately, however, it seemed like the topics didn't last long and disappeared. Then one day I clicked on the ACTIVE category and there they were! So now I know at least two ways to find out what's going on in the RV world.

RE: Battery problem

Similar problem. I had the dealer change the battery under Delco warranty. The old one was a little over a year old. The dealer said they have found bad batteries in cars just off the truck from the factory. Either the batteries are not as good as they used to be OR the newer cars have parasitic draws that drain the battery even when turned off. I'd get the battery replaced asap. I bought a battery jumper. Cheap insurance against being stranded.

RE: Quartzite--happening this year?

According to Chuck Woodbury's latest newsletter Quartzite is alive and well and the big tent will be up and running albeit with some mods due to the virus. Personally I would pass it up having underlying health problems and not knowing where the germ with my name on it is lurking.

RE: Extended warranty

OK no argument BUT be sure to read the contract to see what repairs are NOT included and where the service must be performed.

RE: Should I get a new Tow Vehicle or a Bigger Gas Tank?

I'm thinking you have already sort of decided to get a bigger gas tank. From a financial standpoint it's a no brainer. Lots of posters would like to spend YOUR money...

RE: Temp. go before freezing pipes on class a

32 degrees F. It all depends on how long the RV will remain at the temperature. 28 degrees overnight should be OK. 26 degrees overnight I'd start to worry. That my $.03.

RE: Christmas vacation

I like the Colonial Williamsburg idea.

RE: 2021 trips already being canceled.

Being sick away from home gives me pause for 2021 planning; usually Florida in April to start the vacation year. But we just bit the bullet and made Door County, WI plans for August 2021. Surely by then...

RE: MaxxAir II Vent Covers - Installation

If it wasn't for the fact that there will be holes in the roof screwing down into the roof makes a better installation IMHO. I have installed two sets of covers using the recommended brackets into the opening wall and there can be issues: the screws into the wall can come loose from the vibration of the overhung load of the cover and the bolts/nuts can come loose for the same reason. Those nuts/bolts should be checked on occasion. I've had them loosen. and the overhung load isn't the greatest idea for an RV that bounces around like ours does.
