RE: Smaller TT's with ducted air

Ducted air does not mean quieter. In fact, there is a new inside cover for ducted a/c that is supposed to cut down the noise by at least half but extends below the ceiling by about 2 1/4 inches. I've ordered one but haven't installed it as yet.

RE: Galveston area things to do

For more ideas do a Google search for `_____________ tourism' and put Galveston or other area/city in the blank space and read on.

RE: Trip out west, YNP, Glacier. Which cell booster to get?

Many years ago we were able to get a Verizon signal in the middle of YNP on a hill overlooking the Yellowstone River. The view upriver toward the falls showed the yellow stone from which the park was named.

RE: Help with water puddling on camper cover

Replace that flimsy material cover with a Sunshield (silver/black) tarp and hold it down with boat fenders half filled with sand. The heavier material will tend to bridge the hollow places in the roof. A 30 x 40 tarp is around $125 and is much easier to install, remove and store than those that envelope the rig. Send me a PM for more info.

RE: Absolute positively the worst road ever

My rule is if the route states `Scenic' on the map avoid it when towing.

RE: Yosemite in Winter

I think I would look into available cabins or lodge. We like our TT but staying in it in freezing weather is not worth the anticipated trouble (like cold) and unanticipated trouble (like pipes freeze or furnace out).

RE: Help finding fresh date Tires

Of course, we don't know where the friend tried to find tires perhaps he was looking for tires off the shelf. If off the shelf I'd go to the biggest tire dealer in the area, the one that sells the most tires. With luck they have them in stock. If not in stock will they order what you want? If not, try a smaller dealer who might go the extra mile to satisfy you I also like the idea of developing a relationship with a dealer who cares about you.

RE: Sewer smell strong in trailer when dumping??

Any chance the bathroom exhaust fan is on while dumping?

RE: Traveling to the NW

Mountain Directory West should be a good resource.

RE: What would cause this on a slide out?

Don't know if this will help but we use three bars to be sure our slide stays in for travel. They came with the rig but would be easy to make out of dowel rod or pvc pipe.

RE: New GFI Outlet Will Not Reset

We had that same problem with an outside GFCI at home. Whenever it rained it would trip. I gave up and replaced it with a standard single outlet for that one extension cord. But in the February 2020 Trailer Life one posters stated that his outside GFCI would fill up with water when it rained which tripped it and after it drained out or evaporated the GFCI could be reset. The solution was to drill a drain hole in the box to allow the rainwater to drain out.

RE: 4 season camping

IMHO there is no such thing as a 4-season camper, ie. one that can be used in the dead of winter. It's not a house. One option might be to buy a 3-season camper and rent a cabin for the really cold times and locations.

RE: Desert Southwest suggestions

I'd look at Adventure Caravans Grand Circle tour of the Western Parks to get an idea of where they go in the month of September.

RE: utah activities for seniors

You might also be interested in Adventure Caravans Grand Circle tour of the Western Parks. It takes the entire month of September but you will have seen as much of the west as possible for your physical situation. If interested you might call and ask them about hiking.

RE: Full timing question

Probably a better definition of `arm and leg' would be in order.

RE: asking for suggestions/opinions

How about going back to square one and think about whether or not you really need an RV. If you always go back to the same campground what about renting one of their cabins and put the sale money for the TT into Starbucks stock?

RE: Looking for RV parks near Boston MA

While waiting try searching for Boston in the RV Parks section of this Forum.

RE: Where, oh where to go

Do a Google search for `______ tourism' and put the State, City or area in the blank space and take your pick.

RE: Interior adhesive

How about Loctite Power Grab all-purpose construction adhesive which they state is good to hang even towel bars

RE: Why do I still look at my tankl level gauges?

I haven't been RVing for several months but I seem to remember that the Freshwater gauge might be `accurate' and maybe even the gray tank. But the black tank is hopeless. I just go by the number of days we've been camping since the last dump. I think we can go a week.
