RE: Time to move on

Good luck and God Bless you and yours. I will remain. You make some points that are right. Good people with good advice. I have a Red Oak tree in my yard that is dying. Beautiful tree. Several years ago an 'aboroist' was trimming it and dropped a big log on the side of the tree and ripped the bark off in a small place. Tree got infested with ants and ate the heart wood out. Then came beetles boring holes and now I have a beautiful dead tree. We may have gotten our bark ripped on this forum sometime in the past from an expert and it is causing the problems we ar having now. I don't know but I do see a huge drop in readership and comments since I first came here years ago. I am pretty senior so I will pull some rank and ask that we be a little less hostile and a lot more helpful in what we say and how we say it. THis forum is one of my daily stops to check each morning and afternoon while i have computer time. Wish you all a great life whatever and wherever you go

RE: Best Route from Rock Springs, Wy to Yellowstone

191 thru Jackson, Moran and into the park. Not a beautiful route for the first 1/4 of the route but doable in a MH and the most direct

RE: Not much posting

Of course you are right, there is indeed fewer posts. There is another RV forum that I read and it is going prtty strong. It has gottn too specific with the catagories. If I cannot go camping right now, I still enjoy reading about places others visit, the problems (and solutions) they have. Lot of good general info on the hobby of RVing on both forums.

Still searching for info

I have asked this question on a couple or three RV sites as well as well Newmar NIRVC and still have no answer. My 2016 Newmar Canyon Star 3911 (handicap model) has a living room slide that will not go out. Tough on a person on a handicap scooter to get around in that narrow space. Was told 'check the fuse'. I cannot find the fuse location to even check this possibility. Newgle site on Newmar is no help. Could some of you folks tell me please? Or, perhaps have an idea what is causing this if not a fuse? There is no effort or anything that suggest the slide is getting power. I have searched and find nothing that looks close being a DC fuse. any input would help Thanks

Do not carry cash in Tennessee. Why?

RE: Avoiding Nashville

Terrain and lack of good roads make it very difficult to go around. The so called Nashville by-pass is just a name. We have looked several ways and I even talked to an LEO about the quickest way around. His advice was to go straight through. Pay attention to the route signs. They happen unexpectantly with the terrain there.

RE: Fuel mileage

OP here. Thanks for all the input. I don't worry about the $$$'s, but the rig I'm looking at buying has a 75 gallon tank. I was just trying to figure out about how far I can get on each tank full. Thanks again... Didn't mean to imply that in a ugly manner. Sorry. I believe my coach gets about 5 towing. These long gassers are hard to get into the gas pumps in most regular stations. We try to start looking for stations we will fit into at about half tank. Some of the QT stations along the interstates bought enough property to allow a long coach to gas . Some stations off I-75 in S Georgia have good prices and I can only wave as we drive past. Postage stamp area

RE: Fuel mileage

Chances are if you start driving by your wallet, your trips will become worry and not be any fun. Keep the accelerator off the floorboard and drive off the top half of your tank. We have the Ford F53 chassis an tow a 4 door Jeep. Not nearly the towing power the previous 425 hp Cummins had, but it gets the job done.

...north are south... Said it twice now, still doesn't make sense. Think about dialect. I believe north OR south is what was said

RE: Ruined manual transmissions

Why don't you explain the reason for this question?

RE: Question about 12V charging on Jeep JL while flat towing

On a previous coach I ran a fused line to the Jeep battery to the coach battery. Nothing complicated and worked fine

Weather is always around

We have had great weather here in N Georgia for the past few days - low humidity and cooling temps. We are heading out to NE Georgia mountains for a few days and as I look at the weather report I see most of N Georgia with rain on up into N Carolina. Don't mind the rain so much but hate to set up in the rain. This is our first outing since this COVID mess got started and we are having to re-learn every detail for packing and traveling. Going to be fun, even in the rain

RE: Looking to add LED driving lights

I added 'fog lights' to a Jeep I had several years ago. Didn't do well in fog. Talked to a guy in the parts store who had a nice Jeep and he said basically the same thing you just said rgatijnet1. Turns out I did not want fog, I wanted spot beams. I didn't keep the Jeep long enough to ever change them out, but he also told me to buy quality equipment even it was a few bucks higher.

RE: 2022 Tiffin - F-53 Chassis - Brakes

The Ford Chassis Newmar we have now is the first after 2 diesel rigs. I thought exactly the same thing when we drove out of the dealer's lot in Knoxville. By the time we had gotten back home I was more used to the brakes and also said, "disc brakes would make me feel better". They still would! We seldom get into the steep roads like we did with the diesels so I guess this will be the last MH we will ever own. Keep safe and enjoy the road life Hmm, Just how old is your F53? They have had 4-wheel disks for years. It is a 2016 Canyon Star 3911 handicap equipped. Dealer said it was not disc brakes. I have not crawled under to see. Sure does not stop like discs

RE: Atlanta

I don't know where you are starting from except western Ky. Might be a little longer but not much, to come east of Atlanta. Problem might be the mountains in western NC. Sounds silly to Carolina to get to Savannah, but time wise you might save it. Atlanta is prtty much of a roll of the dice on traffic issues. When we go come home from S Dakota we cut off of 75 in Dalton and then to Dawsonville, Gainesville to Athens. Not interstate speeds but we like that part of the country. In Gainesvillle just get on 129 toward Athens. Athens bypass (Ga 10 loop) to US 441 to Watkinsville exit. Follow US 441 to Madison, Eatonton, Milledgville to Dublin. Dublin get I-16 to Savannah. Going to be some truck traffic on 16 because of the Port at Savannah is a busy place. Not a bad ride until 16 then it is just boring to Savannah.

RE: Regular Microwaves vs RV Microwaves

My kitchen microwave does not have convection like the one in the MH. Is/could that be the difference in prices?

RE: StrangeThings

Twenty seven years on the job. When working traffic I figured my job was to change the manner of the offender's driving. Doing so could involve several ways. Sometimes just seeing my car on the side of the road 'lookin' would slow them down. Sometimes flashing my light would do it. Other times, much depending on the speed of the offender, pulling him over and having a discussion would do it. This discussion might result in a verbal warning, a written warning or even a 'follow me to the courthouse' where a Magistrate would set the bond or fine (if the offender admitted the offense) Many times a driver would be drinking or even under the influence of alcohol or drugs and still be driving pretty good except for the speed. That is when we (law enforcement) had to decide if he was less safe with the alcohol in his system. All this is negated when that little camera takes the photo. Is the jurisdiction any safer? not a whit! But, they are happy to accept the money, check or credit card as a fine for the speeding. Was there anything that 'warned' the driver to slow down before or after the camera? There MIGHT have been a small sign at the city limits sign that said "speed limit electronically enforced", but this was more because of the laws rather than slowing down a speeder.
