RE: Anybody still going out?

Near Challan, WA Actually that's not really all that close to Chelan, but it is very close to Leavenworth and Wenatchee, and IN Cashmere. That's the Chelan County Faigrounds. YES Thanks for the correction. Chelan County Fairgrounds. The price was way better then Leavenworth.

RE: Anybody still going out?

I live in western Oregon and ride a road bike ( was a Victory XCT and now back to my 2005 Road King ). March 2020 (when covid started) we were camping at the Oregon Coast for the 3rd trip that year. April; we got a monthly member spot in Central Oregon and went back and forth on the weekend for 3 or 4 nights each week. We got in a few rides from camp. Memorial week was in NE Oregon for 10 day ( 4th annual trip with 5er, 12th trip overall). We have NOT altered our fun and travels one bit. We had an awesome 2 week trip in Sept to NE Oregon and south Washington. Rainier NP and Mt St Hellen we great. We go where it's NOT HOT ( hot being 80*). I'm ready for my Memorial Week trip, which starts next Thursday. KEN Near La Grande, OR Near Challan, WA ( correction Chelan County Fairgrounds ) On a walk around Magone Lake after a peaceful ( very little traffic ) on the Victory to get here.

RE: Yosemite to glacier NP... route?

Thanks for the advice. Our biggest concern was whether we should avoid Tioga pass to go north and best way from there. I don't know which would be easier to pull over. 108 or 88. DO NOT DO --- 4 ---. 4 is a fabulous motorcycle road. I have blasted over 108 and 88 on a motorcycle too. My memory says it was a ways up and then a long down hill, with sweeping corners. KEN

RE: Truck Camper Forum for 20 Years

Congratulations Brad. 20 years of sharing and helping. Back in 2005 we got a pickup camper and I learned "how to use it" HERE. Thanks, KEN

RE: Yosemite to glacier NP... route?

We will be driving from west yosemite to glacier np the last of may pulling a 40 ft fifth wheel and was wondering what would be the best route .... rt5 to portland, or hit 80 in nevada and take 95, good sams says take 93 in nevada and going north. Or take rt 5 north..Which is best route for large fifth wheel? 95 to 12 to 93. Glacier is closed on Going to the Sun Highway. From the web site Portions of Going-to-the-Sun Road remain open all year and provide access to many locations and activities. The opening of the alpine portion varies, based on snowfall and plowing progress. There is no set date for the road to open. Typically the road has been fully open in late June or early July. KEN

RE: Long term camping questions

Florence Oregon on the central coast Florence is a nice town. It's just a bit over an hour from our house. It's a nice little town. The museum is interesting for the local history. Just south in Dune City you can rent or ride on the dunes. I have lived in Western Oregon my whole life. We are getting ready to retire and travel the USA full-time. We will probably still come back to Oregon for the winter. We don't like the hot and or dryness of the normal wintering states. Ask away; of you have any questions about the coast. KEN Don't miss all the many lighthouses.

RE: Long term camping questions

We will be spending 3 1/2 months on the Oregon coast I have two questions first if the travel trailer is parked on gravel do we have to put something underneath the tires second we have one slide out on our travel trailer the mechanism looks pretty strong do we need slide out stabilizers. Thanks Are you going to only be at on spot the whole time? North or South Coast? You will need warm clothes and light jackets. KEN

RE: Lassen Nat. Park?

The web site said the plowing was done and the equipment was being moved out. I'll bet the road opens Monday or Tuesday. KEN

RE: Charge wizard with Lithium upgrade to Converter charger?

I upgraded my PD4560 converter charger with the PD4560Licsv which is designed for Lithium batteries. I noticed that the charge wizard light still flashes and can be changed to the different modes. Is that purely visual and nothing is actually taking place like voltage changes to storage, normal and boost? Was the charge wizard original equipment with the PD4560? I don't see it referenced with the PD4560Licsv. It should not be needed, since the lithium charge is just one constant voltage. KEN

RE: Coast to Coast east to west

Wife and I are expecting opportunity to travel from Raleigh NC to Squim, Washington during month of June in our 42FT MH. Any travel suggestions, routes, route to stay away from would be appreciated. We looked at RV Trip wizard and it selected any one of three but being 3000 miles I prefer to truth the drivers first and foremost. Thanks in advance for your suggestions :? Check out US 50 route. If you want to enjoy your trip. Stay off the freeway when possible. KEN

RE: BradW's photo links on the Truck Camper Forum

I can't see the upper images, but the album is great. I can't see them either. I'm still learnin' Flickr. It seems a lot more professional/modern than Fototime. But there are some differences that I will have to get used to. I can't figure out an easy/quick way to copy a direct URL link to a specific photo on Flickr. I can create a link, but I then have to edit out +20 some odd additional characters to get down to the correct direct link to just the photo. Me still learnin'. Colorado is always great. We were there 10-20 Sept 2020. Aspens were about 80% when we left for Moab. It's not the fastest way to do it, but I use the share photo button. Up pops a link. I select BBCode and the correct size. Then I copy the link, I post the link directly to the posting page. by Ken Coen, on Flickr Then I cut off all before and after img. KEN

RE: BradW's photo links on the Truck Camper Forum width=640 Flickr Album Link Test I can't see the upper images, but the album is great. The Colorado elevation must not have bothered you. My wife and I took the Road King to Colorado from Oregon for a 2 week road trip in late sept. The leaves were changing colors in the higher elevations. KEN

RE: BradW's photo links on the Truck Camper Forum

Flickr keeps raising their pro price and I keep paying it. It was $44 for 2 years for many years. I set my phone to send all pictures taken to go to Flickr. Works great. KEN

RE: Dish Network Wally Receiver

When we were using the Tailgater and Wally I don't remember ours doing that. Dish is usually very helpful on the phone. That's part of what we pay for. KEN

I use the aluminum 12ft pole that came in the deluxe kit. It does a big area very fast. KEN Just so I understand, you folks that are using the extended pole, you use the pole to both apply the product and to remove it? Our Solitude is 13.5 ft tall. I didn't want to deal with a ladder and maybe get hurt. The long, strong pole is very easy to use. There is a 2 sided "mop type head" that you apply with on side and wipe clean with the other. KEN

RE: Yellowknife Mosquitoes!

My wife and I did a trip to AK in 2009. We stopped around 10PM at a pulloff / campground for the night. We had to setup the tent with full riding gear on. Even the helmets. Once in the tent; the mosquitoes that did get in (20 or 30) with us all go to the mesh; trying to get out. They are an easy kill then. NOTE: you must kill all that are in the tent or you will have that buzzzzz sooner then later in your face. Safe travels, KEN

RE: BradW's photo links on the Truck Camper Forum

Over the last 20 years I have posted 1,000's of photo links on the TC forum. Everything from how to disassemble a Rancho 9000 shock to vacation photos. All those photos were hosted on I never had a single problem with Fototime in 20 years, but they are all gone now. A couple of weeks ago Fototime ceased operations for mostly unexplained reasons (possible due to the big French sever farm fire). So, if you are looking at one of my posts and the photo is "unavailable", it ain't and it ain't your computer; it's a broken photo link that will never come back. Sorry folks. Hi Brad Photobucket did the same thing to me. I have been posting on many forums and poof the photos are gone unless you pay them lots of money. Thanks for all the help years ago when I first got our Citation camper. I learned everything about that camper and how to do this and that rving stuff. KEN

RE: Where's a few of your favorite destinations to go?

Since this is posted in the toy hauler thread, I'll share. NE Oregon (near John Day) has some great motorcycle riding. Both on and off road. S x S too.
