RE: Overhang

Overhang or is it Overhung?

RE: Campground Breakers - EDITED

Park changed the 50A breakers and the new tripped too. Two ACs and a Aqua Hot with 2 electric elements will overload most systems. His electric bill was $230 while mine was $80.

RE: Refrigerator has quit working on elec./ where is fuse?

Probably on the control board assuming you have power to the 120V outlet.

RE: 100 amp service

OP has 9 posts after this one without bothering to reply. Why posting anything else?

RE: TV recommendations for outdoor TV entertainment center

Thanks for answering his question Bob. :S LED TVs are the answer...cheap, weigh very little and do not use much power.

RE: Do you recommend unhitching the dinghy over Monarch Pass?

Assuming the CRV driver knows to down shift to keep the speed down instead of using the brakes I would unhook it. West bound from the pass is a long steep downhill where you need to go down slower than you went up.

RE: Door stop--or whatever its called

About every 5-6 years I have to bend the end that sticks out past the pivot so it has more force when it goes into the dimple on the other arm. A large crescent wrench works well and it doesn’t take much bending to tighten it up.

RE: Jake vs Exhaust Brake

A Jake Brake is better but I doubt they make one for your engine.

RE: Best Location for MaxxAir Covers?

Buy 2 more or put it over the Fantastic fan so you can run it when it rains.

RE: Induction cooktop amps?

I put in a removable 2 burner induction because it fit the hole the best knowing that a 120V unit would not have enough power for both on much more than half power. Better to just figure it’s a one burner unit with a side warmer. Most SS pans are magnetic...will work on an induction.

RE: Shadow Mountain Tetons

Did you check out Antelope Flat while you were there?

RE: Travel to Moab, Bryce, Zion from Durango

Where are you going after that...Moab first or last? Yes, it’s going to be HOT so you will need FHU CGs or running the generator 24-7. We are planning on starting in Moab the middle of September ending up at the N Rim end of the month.

RE: Tow Dolly Weight

OP, Google will tell you how much weight and % on each axle for your car. Your CRV is 59:41 so with 200 lbs of stuff in it the front axle has 2065 lbs...took less than 2 minutes. Doesn't the angle of lifting the front axle change the ratio? Yes it does but it’s very little. You would have to know how much higher and the wheelbase.

RE: Any RV transport recommendation?

FMCA now has trailer memberships. Most on Uship have their own trucks and could talked a week to maybe find some.

RE: LED lighting

Seems like HD has a good price on them.

RE: Estes Park CO to Grand Lake CO

Yes it’s the shortest now that it’s back open BUT unless you have a fair amount of mountain driving with sharp switch backs I would not recommend it. If you decide to have someone drive the CRV...DO NOT tow it. My advice is to skip Estes Park (biggest tourist trap around) and go straight to Grand Lake by another route. Take the CRV from Grand Lake into RMNP and even to Estes Park.

RE: Detroit Diesel Series 60

Monaco/HR had the 60 as a $10K option until 2008. Would have been my engine of choice but could not find one in a 08. Needed a 08 because of a dumb 10 year rule.

RE: Satelite Internet

Hughes Gen 5 service ^^^^ is not portable...spot beamed so you can’t take it with you. They still support a mobile/ portable system BUT the speeds are slow so you can forget Netflix. 8 years ago I converted my Hughes internet dish to receive Direct HD TV because, like above, we have both cell providers and between them we usually have service.

RE: Newmar Dutch Aire 4304

Welcome to the DP side of RVing...you’ll love it. I recently upgraded to a orphan (company no longer in business and not supported very well by newest owner...REV). and I’m not worried about getting parts. I would want a 23,000 lb rear axle on that rig...may not have muck CCC on that size rig without it.
