RE: Food!

Take a day off and fast. It's not too hard and great for the body's health. You're sure to appreciate the food options more, and the fact that we even have food options. If that's not possible, try having a handful of nuts or a fruit to satiate your hunger- you'll be surprised how little you need to get by, and you'll be sure to eat whatever you're rolling past at the next meal.

RE: Storing a Trailer Aid

It doesn't seem that big, does it have to have a permanent location or can you just put it where there's space? If you're worried about putting it down and forgetting about it, put it on the driver's seat.

RE: A V-10, a Scan Gauge and lots of good karma...

Great to hear. I'm making notes for a future trip. Please do them the return favor and post positive reviews at and whatever media you use: Google, yelp, fb, etc.

RE: alaska 2021 ???

This isn't the first time an area dependent on tourism has stumbled- Alaska went through the gold rush, the oil boom, and more. Florida, the East coast, the gulf, Galveston, and others go through this regularly and they bounce back. If an individual or their business flounders, then they pivot and do something else to survive. That's why there are so many Lyft drivers here in Chicago.

RE: Advice on RV "carport"

If I built something like this, I would want to do everything under the cover. This would include putting the things down when I empty one of the compartments, being able to open all the compartments fully, having the ladder feet sitting underneath the cover, etc. It sounds like you're trying to balance overall aesthetic with practicality. While I agree this is important, any kind of structure is going to adversely impact your lot's aesthetic. Those that are detractors will always say how bad it looks, while those who are owners like you - wow this is a great idea. I would aim for the latter, and it seems you are too because you are thinking about which way the wind blows, how to back onto the driveway, and so forth. What you didn't mention here is future upgrades. It might be helpful to have electric for waxing or a ceiling fan or have a couple sides partly closed to store things, etc. What about a drain- could you tie into the house sewer and get a easy place to dunno for incremental more cost? Everything would be below the slab anyway.

RE: What to do with my G2

Try offerup and Craigslist. Doesn't hurt to get a couple bucks or even give it to someone who will use it.

RE: Swapping out my jackknife sofa for recliners

As we rebuild and renovate slowly, we're amazed how little is holding this rv together. I wouldn't worry but you can always lay down a board or a track to secure to, in addition to the flimsy base materials. We don't have any slides.

RE: Buying from private party in California

Many states require immediate registration, even to just drive out of the state. Check the DMV in both states, as I'm sure both have rules for your situation to retain their revenue. It can't be the first time they're run into this.

RE: Class C Rocky Mountains ??

Looks like the last couple responses covered everything. We've gone from Banff to Jasper in each of the last 2 summers and our 31' did fine, once pulling a Honda Accord on a dolly. You'll see all kinds of rigs doing that run. I use cruise when I can but it usually doesn't shift when I want it to, so it's generally in tow mode on hills- going up and down. Much of the road is 2 lane, so you'll want to watch for cars passing you at speed when it's only 1. There are plenty of sights, like Athabasca Falls and you can dry camp at the Icefields visitor center as many do. We budgeted 6 hours for what Google maps called 3.5 hrs, and it took all day including pictures at pullouts and spending time at the 2 places mentioned. There are very few roads but it's beautiful scenery. Unless you want to see Valemount via Jasper, you have to go to Revelstoke from Lake Louise to go further west. We went to Alaska via Grand Prairie and returned Prince George, Kamloops to Kelowna - so I assume you'd get to Hope via Vernon - beautiful and challenging with the truck traffic, but not as bad as the tv series Highway Thru Hell depicts since you'll go in summery weather. But there's plenty of traffic of all sizes. Feel free to DM your questions.

RE: Sink inserts

How are older RV came with a wood cover, but it was always questionable how sanitary it was to cut on. I would just purchase and antimicrobial cutting board.

RE: Question about exiting in an emergency

There's always the other way of looking at the situation- it'll be time to go when it's time to go. Out the door, out the window, or not at all.

RE: RV & Auto Parts Return Experience

Worst case, file a claim with your credit card. I wouldn't accept that kind of service- most places I've dealt with are very honorable in this regards. Too much at stake nowadays with Amazon after your dollars. Please also leave a review on Google, yelp, anywhere, when it's all done so others can benefit/ learn.

RE: Moving on up... to the mountains!

Congratulations, looks wonderful! Nothing more fulfilling than when it all comes together, and you can share the joy. It's always nice to complement a good turn with another one for someone- perhaps you can count your blessings by giving some to someone else. (I always wonder if that's why waitresses get sudden large tips! :-) )

RE: Sticky situation

Mineral spirits remove residues cheaply, but be sure to test for any impact to your roof.

RE: 4 maybe 5 weeks....

Muncho Lake is beautiful if you go that way, but stay away from the logging and mining trucks. Despite the economic positives, seeing that destruction will ruin your trip.

RE: Tow or not to Tow has a nice service for ~$30/yr There's lots of blm land out west but rest areas and pilot stations are easy while going on the interstates.
