RE: RV Magazine

I subscribed to Motorhome Magazine when we first bought our Class C. It was an okay magazine. I kept the subscription for 2 years and then cancelled it. There is so much more useful info on the internet that the magazine is not very useful. Want a review of a particular RV, go to YouTube and get a video walk through. Have a problem? Go to YouTube, someone else most likely already has had it and created a video about fixing it. Between YouTube and all the different RV message boards, there is nothing a magazine can provide that would top what is on the internet. -Michael But I don't have a TV in the bathroom, and my wife scowls at me if I take the phone in there.

RE: Our Splendide 2100XC finally died

You're saying an extended rv warranty company replaced it? What warranty company is that? JK

RE: Having Fun in the Sun!

We're dry camping in the Everglades and it's too **** hot! The low last night was about 75. Give me some pity... JK

RE: Short Term Freezing Weather Tips?

If you have an enclosed underbelly, disconnect the hose going to the rig, let the furnace run overnight (60s ok) and don't worry about it. Even without the furnace upper 20s for a few hours won't penetrate. JK

RE: Wifi in remote areas

We use the Winegard Connect2 wifi extender +4G hotspot. As I type this we are in the Everglades National Park campground using this device. It is sometimes finicky and expensive if you watch YouTube. $60 for 10 gigs that seem to burn fast. As I said before, people confuse the device with the service (which is what the service provider WANT YOU TO DO!) That device can work on multiple networks with the correct SIM card. Correct- You can use an ATT/Verizon sim card IF you you have an account with them. I do not, so I buy data from Winegard.

RE: Fuel mileage

With the rig in my signature I generally get 9-10 mpg manually doing the math. Last week from Wisconsin to the Florida keys I got 9.1. Fifth wheel weights about 11,500 lbs. JK

RE: I-65 Alabama

Just today we towed our 5th wheel on I-65,although we went north to south to Montgomery, and it was ok EXCEPT in Birmingham. It was horrible there. JK

RE: Big Bend NP

What are the best RV parks in the Big Bend NP area. We were at Big Bend last year and stayed at the Maverick Ranch Rv Park. You say 'Rv Park' so apparently that's what you want. I've read that Maverick Ranch is the best in the area and it's ok, having things you might want in such a very remote area like a restaurant and small store. We will be there again in a month, but they do fill up in the winter. Good luck! JK

RE: What is the most efficient way to bypass Chicago?

Where did you see an $89 one way rate for seniors? The rates I posted came off their site for 2021 I see it's $67 for the slower Badger Ferry,which has 2021 pricing. $89 is for Lake Express seniors. The Lake Express website still shows the 2020 prices. This is copied off their rate page: EASY ON, EASY OFF VEHICLE DECK Passengers on the Lake Express have the option of traveling with or without their vehicles. For those wishing to bring a vehicle, the auto deck offers the flexibility to accommodate vehicles and trailers up to 8? 6? in height, 8? in width and 18? in length. Please note, vehicle prices do not include the driver or any additional passengers.

RE: What is the most efficient way to bypass Chicago?

Here are the rates, it's certainly less expensive to drive around, especially if you're towing Fares listed do not include $6.50 security fee, each way. Security fees do not apply to any children's fares. ... Our 2021 Season is May 20th - October 10th, we look forward to seeing you soon! One Way Round Trip Adults $72 $131 Seniors (65+) $67 $124 Child (5-15) $27 $44 Children under 5 FREE FREE How much is the Muskegon ferry? Easy On, Easy Off Vehicle Deck Passengers One-way Roundtrip Auto 107.00 202.00 Auto with Trailer (up to 10ft long) 221.00 424.00 Auto with Trailer (More than 10ft long) Call for Rates B FYI, the Milwaukee/Muskegon ferry auto rate does not include the humans. Senior rate is $89 ea. So 1 car($107) + 2 seniors = $285 one way. Plus whatever extraneous fees they add on. But it's fun!

RE: What is the most efficient way to bypass Chicago?

I'm in Milwaukee and Chicago traffic is often an obstacle. Plan A- Leave early on a weekend only, hitting Chicago about 6a.m. There's traffic, but not too bad. Plan B- I-43 out of Milwaukee to I-39 south. Plan C- Lake Express ferry from Milwaukee to Muskegon. Expensive, but sometimes they have good deals on round trips. There's also the slower but cheaper Badger ferry out of Manitowoc, WI. We've done the Milwaukee ferry twice, car only. JK

RE: Outside Speakers

I installed some Polk marine speakers, along with base pods that angle them downward somewhat. Much better than original though need more bottom end. Waiting for an excuse to replace the head unit. Note: I am very discreet with outside usage.

RE: Vaccinations

I think the problem is nobody is grabbing the bull by the horns. Citizens don't know who will notify them when it's their turn, or even IF they will get notified. We got our Shingles vaccine yesterday, and the pharmacist hadn't gotten her coronavirus vaccine yet and had no idea when she would. That seems to be the entire situation. JK

RE: I just got the new RV Magazine

After reading a bunch of typical negative posts about this I figured most of you were wrong. But you're right. To me, this thing is geared mostly toward women with all the decorating and food stuff. I think my wife might like it but it's not for me for the most part. Too touchy-feely for me. I see some camper reviews toward the back that I will read, but otherwise, to me, it's a failure. JK PS... Trailer Life WAS my favorite magazine.

RE: Avoiding Low clearance routes

My biggest problem is with the GPS or my own brain fart, turning onto a residential street with trees. I once went into a gas station with a close overhead canopy. My truck reached the first pump without the trailer getting under it. While filling, I was eyeballing the clearance. This other guy goes "Awe, you'll clear it." No, I backed out. JK
