RE: Any option for re-filling MH Propane Tank from Small Tank?

Suggest you just do what is obvious and drive to the propane dealer and get the tank filled. You are going to end up with a lot of potential leaking joints, expense and trouble. Bite the bullet and get a lot more propane for a lot less risk and trouble.

RE: Moderna vaccine (Personal experiences)

My first Moderna shot gave me sore arm for a few hours. The second made me tired with a low fever and felt crappy for 48 hours. My wife had no problems except sore arms on both occasions. She had Moderna vaccine as well.

RE: mass elec. storage 'battery' rethink the term application.

Why is it necessary to copy/quote so much folks? None of you will change the other's minds about how you feel about a subject such as this. If you must state an opinion, do so and move on.

RE: Moderna vaccine (Personal experiences)

My second shot (Moderna) is due tomorrow morning. I scheduled early. That way I can take my Advil to counteract the pain that came with the first one.

RE: Navigation

My Garmin is old and cannot up-grade. Cell phone works well, but if we are going for a few days driving, a current road map to verify what the cell phone tells us is a must. Back country roads in the towed? Cell phone (until we lose a signal)

RE: Do you let you kids drive your motorhome

I had my youngest's husband start hinting around about the second coach we owned. He thought he was a truckdriver and since he drug a few cows to Texas a few years ago I should allow him to take our coach 'on vacation'. nope! I don't 'loan' that out. I did buy a 30 foot travel trailer for our three kids to use with their families. I finally sold it for lack of use. I did find the TV antenna folded wrong, accompanied with an oak limb once. Mr Trucker might have used it once. "I really want a motorhome" he said.

RE: Custer State Park

Question please. I will be coming into the park this summer on highway 19/385, and leaving on highway 16. Will I encounter any road issues like tunnels, etc? If you are coming in from the north, just don't make the mistake of going into Keystone and coming down 16A. Tunnels, narrow roads and a couple of pigtail bridges. Coming from Deadwood/Lead area you are fine. Hill City to Custer City is good. Little steep as you come into Custer City, so don't be in too much of a hurry. From Custer, you can leave east of west on 16, but 16A is not good in an RV. Rent or drive your towed and see the area around there. If you looking for a place to stay, Spearfish has a great park that is city owned and Very nice

RE: CDL Required to Drive Class A?

How many people do you know or have heard of that were cited for wrong class of license (who were operating an RV for leisure) ?? What states don't have reciprocity with other states in licensing (non-commercial vehicles?? I don't think you will find Joe from any state getting shut down in any other state because he has a MH with air brakes and that state requires a special license to drive with air.

RE: Custer State Park

we hosted two summers in Custer. Stockade N and Stockade S. We being from the South likely have different tastes from that part of the country. Truthfully we found very few dining places that we considered 'outstanding'. The Legion Lake cafe/dining room was pretty good for breakfast and lunch. There is a little cafe at a RV park just outside CSP toward Custer City called Wagons West (or similar anyway) The breakfasts are very good. There is a steak house style restaurant in Hill City that is supposed to be good, but the parking is very limited on the street there and there is always a crowd waiting outside. The only decent food we found in Custer City was the Purple Pie Place. They make their own pies and their own waffle cones for ice cream. There is a couple of mediocre restaurants in downtown Custer but nothing to write letters home about.

RE: Soot on Dinghy

Just wondering if it is indeed soot you are seeing? Could it be rubber from the tires of the many, many cars and trucks on the same road you travel on? I have owned three diesel coaches and never had a 'sooty' exhaust. We did have an odor on/in the towed that we figured out to be debris from the tires and road.

RE: Battery rearrangement

Why? there will still be two batteries in the same two places. I expect the engineers and designers had a good reason to put it together like they did

RE: Key West or Out West

So do I need to pre book the trip? That’s really only thing west worries me about. Other than that, I think we can burn 3 weeks but that’s about all the time we’ve got. We never pre-book. Drive until we figure out where we will be at the end of the day. Pull out a well used campground directory and start looking at what is ahead. Phone them up and have a site ready when we get there. If we drive late and want to get an early start, there are all sorts of parking lots and rest areas. We don't do truck stops - too noisy. We also don't do isolated pull-offs (obvious reasons)

RE: Slide topper noise dampening

Our second MH had slides and toppers. When raining you could not tell that rain was falling on the slides or the toppers . . . because the noise on the fiberglass roof was so loud. Sorta like the ole boy that was so particular he complained because we wasn't hung with a new rope. Good grief

RE: Charleston SC

Mt Pleasant KOA is actually closer to old Charleston than James Island even if you have to cross the Ravenell Bridge.

RE: Frame stringer to bulkhead broken welds under water tanks

That is a big weight to put on drive on ramps. Will a truck stop service dept let you use their oil change pit long enough to drill the holes and bolt the flanges on. Might be expensive but you may run into someone with a sense of RVing/camping and how important this can be. Just have all your parts ready to go when you pull over the pit

RE: Arizona Hwy 89 ALT info please

Several years ago a friend of ours bought some property in Sedona with the intention of building a house. He never did. We were traveling to the Grand Canyon without a towed vehicle (renting a car when we needed - not a good idea in retrospect) and he asked us to stop by and give him some ideas on the place. Rather than going back south to 17 and then north to Flagstaff the simple route appeared to be 89A. We were in a 36 foot DP w/o a towed. There were some switchbacks that had me nervous from the lack of rails or barriers. Problem was, no place to turn around had I wanted to. All that said, it is doable but it is not any fun nor time to sight see.

RE: FREE Wheel Chair LIft

My wife has MS and uses a mobility scooter. I pick her up and lift her from the scooter to the seat of the CRV. One of the days I will be too old for that. Wish that first item was closer to Atlanta than California.

Quarantine for Florida trip?

We are scheduled to travel to Tampa area sometime in January to have some work done on the MH (remove that ugly nasty plastic film on front) The question bothering me is with the COVID 'spike' we are going through once again, is there an isolation period for Florida and Ft Myers area in particular? I expect to have been vaccinated in the next week or so here in Georgia
