Peace of mind: priceless This stuff keeps them looking great and I've heard it protects well: https://smile.amazon.com/Dressing-Protectant-Attracting-Conditioner-Automotive/dp/B003VSATBI

RE: Roll Call Alaska 2019

It's definitely cold in Fairbanks, and moreso in Denali. Ioverlander is a great resource and points to a lot of spots, with downloading the app for this area alone. Info for Denali is not always accurate: flush toilets/ running water at Savage Creek and Riley campgrounds. Didn't see them elsewhere. Eilsen and Entrance visitor centers and Mercantile also. Everything costs more here, but gas is more reasonable in Healy, to the north about 15 minutes. We also saw a moose cross the road there!

RE: Major suspension/steering upgrade

Details would certainly be helpful to help you. Ours is pushing 20 years and the 400$ alignment last year made a big difference. I wouldn't spend that kind of money unless I was first sure everything else is 100%

RE: Tips for Traveling with Other Couples

Beyond what's been said, I don't like a know-it-all, and I'm close to a few. I wouldn't want them telling me everything "I just have to see" so talk through their needs for you expertise, and your needs to share as well.

RE: "leaking" fridge has caused trim to start rotting

My exterior panel behind the fridge is soft and we ruled out the vent pipe above, a leak from the shower nearby, and regular most from the fridge (the collection book is near the pilot flame, which makes any water evaporate we were told). I'm curious what you learn.

RE: AC question

I'd start with following your practice at home; you can always set the temp to trigger the AC high, at 85 for example, and see how that works. Just keep in mind that on a95 degree day, the unit will run a lot, and expense and triggering electrical concerns shared earlier. We matched to burn out a smaller guage extension cord on a 105 degree day when it ran straight for hours. Yes it was a dumb move, but a good learning lesson here too.

RE: Do you contribute ?

We review and contribute on Google, zabihah, TripAdvisor, here, gasbuddy, restaurant.com - rule of thumb: if it adds value then you should give something back.

RE: Ford V10 gradual reduction in fuel economy

We add a couple cans of seafoam periodically to clean the inserts but I'll be curious what you learn also.

RE: Tires For E450

I'm very happy with Firestone in the Western burbs and the fresh transforce HT they've put on, easy to source and result available because so many medium duty trucks use them.

RE: Flat towing Jeep Wrangler with LED lights

Someone mentioned needing a resistor or something to make the LED lights flash at the same cadence as the RV

RE: If you had a month...?

Given where home is, I'd guess you want the opposite- mountains, fall colors, cooler temps for jacket bike riding. If suggest you roll Northeast, hitting national parks on your way to New England. Finding on how much you drive daily, I'd suggest 7-9 days max of 1 way driving, so you have time to decompress and relax, and time to return. Catch a bunch of small stuff, like was mentioned. We like to keep moving so we just move slowly and make a circle, tweaking the plans if we're 'behind schedule'... oh well.

RE: Handling/steering.

DM and I can suggest a truck shop in Chicago's suburbs that did a great job with ours. We travel heavy in the tail, which certainly impacts performance, but they did a great job fixing the alignment and it rides great. I'm coming due -for upgraded shocks, like others have mentioned though.

RE: Any widow(er)s around here?

It's a new "normal", don't force it. Just when you thought the range of emotions were dealt with, here come a while group more with the solo traveling. Give yourself space, and give her credit, albeit posthumously. So sorry for your lost; may you find peace as you journey to find yourself.

RE: Roll Call Alaska 2019

Alaska roads street the border require 40-45 mph in some places due to frost heave, and also on the road to Glen Allen. Otherwise you're dusty but clear through to Palmer. Done beautiful spots along the roadside and up on the plateau but watch out for evening fog. Wasilla offers water at $5/167 gal. But don't use a filter out anything else that will slow the pump down or it'll stop. The laundromat there is pricey, the Carr's store is open 24 hrs, and the visitor center/ museum is very helpful. Make sure you have plenty of data roaming unless you have ATT or a local service; wifi is hard to come by. Lowe's and Target offer it, among the usual coffee shops, library, etc. Downloading offline maps is a big help to reduce your usage. DM if anyone has specific questions. Hope this helps.

RE: RCMP seek witnesses - Liard Hot Springs death investigation

Here's an article showing the faces. Is still safe up here, but as always it's important to be prepared, and aware of your surroundings. https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/british-columbia/couple-killed-in-bc-missing-persons-lucas-fowler-chynna-deese-1.5221657

RE: not your normal tire thread

We're happy with the transforce by Firestone, usually their stores stuck within 6 months of mfg.

RE: New Toilet recommendations

We installed the dometic 320 sister also. Good unit.

RE: They Better Not Screw Us Up

How did we get here in an RV forum? This discussion should get moved to a Facebook page...

RE: Roll Call Alaska 2019

Some gravel patching areas between Muncho and Watson, and plenty of roàdside wildlife, but otherwise burget 4 hours to enjoy the scenary. For gas in fort Nelson.
