RE: OH to CT- I-80 or I-90?

Yes, I was aware, but a reminder is always good. Thanks.

RE: OH to CT- I-80 or I-90?

OK, thanks for the clarification. I was looking at I-79 North out of Washington and the 2 lane 68 up to I-80. This makes much more sense. Google says it adds over 2 hours compared to I-80 or I-90, but it may be worth it.

RE: OH to CT- I-80 or I-90?

77 to 70 to 79 to 68 to 81 to 84, we did basically the reverse of that when coming home from NYC to NE Ohio a few years ago and it was a very pleasant drive and I was able to fill up in WV avoiding the high gas taxes in PA, you'd probably need to add a fill-up in Maryland as well unless you've got a really big tank. That looks like a lot of 2 lane driving through some hilly country. It's probably scenic, but we have some time constraints getting to CT. Did you leave out a long stretch on I-80 in your directions, or am I missing something? I do appreciate all responses.

RE: OH to CT- I-80 or I-90?

I80,Pa to I287 to I684 to I84 I take once per year, worse part of the trip is I84 in western CT. Lots of construction in Western Ct combined with heavy commuting from NY. (watch for the cutting cars) It's still doable but gets worse every year. as mentioned I90 thru NY and MA is a much easier commute plus easy on/off service plazas Mike Too close to NYC for my taste, but thanks.

RE: OH to CT- I-80 or I-90?

I-90 is actually the better ride. A lot less truck traffic. Truckers avoid the tolls and stay on I-80 when it splits in Ohio. Plus the road tends to be in better shape (probably because of less traffic). I have not been on 90 in the past couple months. I got roped into a Scranton run last week... 80 in PA has numerous single lane construction zones that back up. NOTHING NEW. I avoid the east coast. So I can't say what is being destructed beyond Scranton. Is I-90 worth the $120 plus (for 4 axles) over I-80?

RE: OH to CT- I-80 or I-90?

I'd go with I-80 or I-86 (southern tier). The Thruway in NY is total extortion even for a passenger car. Yikes- I checked their webpage for toll cost- over $120. I-80 is looking better all the time.

RE: OH to CT- I-80 or I-90?

Matt, thanks for responding. Google maps actually does take 81 to 84 and in. We have taken that in the past (several years ago and found it to be rough enough to make the I-90 tolls through NY worthwhile. But it's been a few years since we've taken I-90 as well, and I wondered if it has deteriorated since. We are kind of in the middle of nowhere, but think Ashland, OH for a starting point. When you say southern tier, are you thinking I-76? That has tolls as well. Which ever decision I end up making, it will be the wrong one, I'm sure. I just thought I'd hedge my bets with other people's recent experiences. Thanks again.

OH to CT- I-80 or I-90?

We plan to go from Northern Ohio to CT (just a little NE of Hartford) in a few weeks. Google maps shows a 20 minute difference between the northern route through NY or the southern route through PA. Has anyone driven either or both of these roads recently to advise as to their condition? We plan to pull our 26' tt. I know there are tolls through NY, but sometimes it's worth that if the PA road is bad enough. Gas buddy shows the fuel cost is basically the same either route. TIA

RE: How to Clean Underbelly of TT After Removing Tape

I recently had to do some work that required cutting the coroplast. The dealer had done some taping before I took posession of the camper, and this is what he used: Tape It had held up well for 10 years, so I bought the same and used it. I cleaned the coroplast with rubbing alcohol and used a little heat from a heat gun. It sealed up well.

RE: What % Of Alcohol Does Your State Have?

There may be something to the spiking mentioned above. I have a flex fuel truck, which has the ability to monitor alcohol content in fuel. I do occasionally check to see how much a tankful contains. I live in a E-10 state (E-85 is sold in separate pumps). The worst I've seen is 16.5% from a Sam's Club station, which gets their gas from Flying J/Pilot marked tanker trucks. From most other stations I read 9.8%. I did discuss this with a tanker truck driver, and he said it is possible that the last tankfull was E-85, and the driver didn't dump it all, refueled with E-10 and got a higher alcohol content.

RE: 3d printed water fill adaptor

Yes, the one on the right looks like the cap that screws on the filler.

RE: 3d printed water fill adaptor

I wish I knew correct terminology, it would make a response much easier. I tried the one 2112 showed above, but it wouldn't work on my fill hatch without modification. My camper uses a hatch that looks like this one: Clicky Taking material off of the portion labeled in red didn't help. I finally chalked the locking portion of the hatch on the camper and put the adapter against it. It appeared that the locking flange on the adapter was too close to the cap of the adapter (sorry again for poor terminology). I took a brass wire brush in a dremel and removed some of the inside of the locking flange, and was able to get it to go on. I can't test it yet as it is too cold here to be dealing with water and hoses, but I think it's going to work.

RE: 3d printed water fill adaptor

So, are you interested in printing one for me?;)

RE: 3d printed water fill adaptor

NICE FIND, I would change it to be a 90deg for the water hose. On the first page of this thread, a picture shows a 90 deg adapter being used, which is what I plan to use if I can get one of these made that actually works.

RE: 3d printed water fill adaptor

He ended up printing a few and then remodeling the design. I forget why he said he was doing it. But here's the final product that he made and sent to me: https://i.imgur.com/P8dT1L1.jpg width=400 https://i.imgur.com/SbJxQjO.jpg width=400 His remodeled version has a bit of slop on each connection (camper side and hose fitting). We're talking about him tweaking it to fit a little tighter. But, thank you so much for the design/idea. This thing is great! Doug, As this thread was referenced in a new, recent thread, I thought I would bring it back from the dead to ask if you and your friend did tweak it for a better fit. I had the original design printed locally by the library, and it didn't fit at all. I don't know much about 3d printing, but it looked like the piece they made me didn't come off of a quality printer. I would like to have someone make one for me, but wanted to check to see if a newer design was available. Thanks
