RE: Brattleboro, VT to Cooperstown, NY

Thanks for your responses (and the additional eating tips :)) Helps to know what to expect.

Brattleboro, VT to Cooperstown, NY

I'll be driving this route in about a week. Looks like a fairly straight shot west. But is Hwy 9 across VT okay for a motorhome with toad? Looks pretty squiggly on Google maps.

RE: Thinking About Nova Scotia/PEI July/Aug 2020

Just returned to the States about a week ago from 7 weeks in NS and PEI. We made reservations all over, which we hated to do. But sometimes we couldn't even get our first choice of campgrounds, or our preferred site/area in a campground. (Reserved 2-3 months in advance of our trip.) Our friends who didn't make reservations had to settle for an alternate campground a ways away from their first choice in a certain town. We basically started in Nova Scotia in Halifax for the Royal Nova Scotia International Tattoo show. Made campground reservations and bought show tickets last year. Went to Halifax, Digby, Lunenburg, Cape Breton. On PEI we stayed near Charlottetown and then Cabot Beach Provincial Park. Would recommend all. Lots of small town festivals in the summer. Loved those! Lots of fun contests at festivals...lobster trap hauling, rope splicing, oyster grading and shucking, fish tub wrestling, etc. Bottle House on PEI is something "different" to see. Take the ferry to PEI and leave via the bridge. You only pay when leaving and the bridge is cheaper than the ferry. Get and read the NS and PEI travel guides, as mentioned. Full of information.

RE: Hwy 302 between I-93 (NH) and I-91 (VT)

What a coincidence VTLee! I have plenty of time to do the drive so not concerned about timing. Thanks both for your responses.

Hwy 302 between I-93 (NH) and I-91 (VT)

From Franconia/Littleton NH area I need to get to VT I-91 southbound to MA. Is Hwy 302 a good road for RV's? Or better to just drive north on I-93 in NH all the way to I-91 in VT?

RE: Bangor ME to Franconia NH to Freeport ME

Well, our plans changed slightly. Now we are going south on 95 as far as Portsmouth, NH. Then we need to go across to 93 to go up to Franconia. Impres mentioned taking 101. What about taking 4/202 to Concord? Is that more difficult to drive than 101 to Manchester? Is 101 just a quicker easier route?

Bangor ME to Franconia NH to Freeport ME

I'd like to know if this Google Map route is RV friendly, or do you have a different suggestion? Will be driving this area in about a week. Maine/New Hampshire/Maine route

RE: RV Toilet

My toilet is also on the opposite side. My holding tank is only a few inches in depth but stretches across the whole width of RV. Can you see down the toilet directly into tank? What do you mean you can hear it release? What is releasing? Also where is the clog...down the toilet pipe or actually in the black tank so that it's not draining? My motorhome sensors and most motorhome sensors do not consistently work. I've used Happy Camper and toilet wand with some success. But after a couple camping trips, the sensors go back to not working. You'll just have to figure out as you go along how many days you can camp until the tanks are full. The clog is the bigger issue. I assume this is a used MH. Maybe there is a dreaded pyramid of poo down there.

RE: Motorhome drinking oil

We'll keep watching the dipstick over the next few thousand miles as we continue our trip. And someday when my body feels nimble, I might crawl under the motorhome to have a look at the undercarriage. Thanks for the additional comments. All very helpful.

RE: Motorhome drinking oil

Thanks for the great input from all you knowledgeable people! Puts us at ease for the rest of our trip.

Motorhome drinking oil

We keep having to add engine oil to our Chevy 8.1L motorhome in 16 oz. every 500 miles. It had a leak a couple months ago and we had an oil line changed. No visible leak now. No smoke coming out of exhaust pipe. Oil pressure on dash gauge is just like it's always been, about 55 when driving...with 40 being the middle and 80 the highest. Does that sound good? We don't even know what those numbers mean. We are over 3,000 miles from home, so can't go back to the mechanic right now. Just wondered if anyone has any ideas about our older motorhome, with 90,000 miles, that uses alot of oil. Should we be concerned? What can be done? The engine still sounds and runs great!

RE: Stopover between PEI and Maine

Thank you all for a variety of suggestions! I'll have to discuss with the 3 other people I'm traveling with. We've seen Hopewell Rocks and the tidal bore in Moncton already. We'll want to get farther west than Fundy Nat'l Park. The islands sound cool, but may be too much to do for our time period. Saint Andrews may fit the bill. Not sure if we'll be driving the way of Saint John River Valley, but I'll present it to the group.

Stopover between PEI and Maine

In August, after spending about 6 weeks in Nova Scotia and PEI, we will be returning to the U.S. via the Confederation Bridge through NB to Maine. Looking for suggestions of where to visit/stay for a couple days before we enter Maine. We will have already been to Hopewell Rocks, so I'm thinking somewhere from Saint John to the U.S. border.

RE: A crappy experience

I've read about someone who bought a new Rhino that was missing the rubber o-ring. I have what may seem like an odd experience. My Rhino leaked sometimes. I finally figured out that the extra little bit of the end of the hose material that stuck up inside the locking ring area was causing the leak. When I clamp the hose onto the motorhome pipe, if I would position the hose such that that bit was at the back/bottom, it would leak. But when I position the hose for that bit to be at the top/front, no leaking. This may just be an issue of the angles in my connection. But you might look into it.

RE: blocks for leveling under jacks and tires

I use yellow legos under my jacks. If on quite slanted site, I might put 3 under the left side jacks and one under the right side jacks...for example. I've never had a problem with breakage. For tires that may come off the ground, I carry two large pieces of wood that are long enough and wide enough for the left and right rear dual tires to be fully on the wood. Of course, I can use the wood for the front tires too.

RE: Chicago Trip Advice

We just recently stayed at the wonderful Paul Wolff campground in Burnidge Forest Preserve in Elgin, IL. Water and electric at campsite, with a dump station. Literally two miles down the same street (Big Timber Rd) is the Big Timber train station, with a large parking lot. Check out the Chicago train routes online. Big Timber station is the last stop on this particular route, and I think the train doesn't stop there on Sundays, so check out the schedule. We drove our car into Chicago. Would never want to drive the motorhome in the city.

RE: Mozilla Thunderbird & Win 10

I would start by trying to open Thunderbird in safe mode and see if it works. If not, then try starting Windows in safe mode and see if Thunderbird works. Search internet for how to do safe mode. You can delete and reinstall the Thunderbird app without losing your emails. Search internet for how to do it. That's what I did with a different Thunderbird problem. But now I can't remember how I did it.
