RE: The Home Depot is my new Amazon

Don't forget Jeff started with just selling books. A lot smaller head start than Home Depot. And don't forget Jeff also go a "small" loan of $250k from his parents and HD stocked their first store with empty boxes because they couldn't afford stock.

RE: Mount Rushmore fireworks!

It appears the reasonable grounds are you have a senile democrat puppet in charge whose handlers have to punish a red state any time they have half a chance to do so. As opposed to the Russian puppet that is suffering from advanced Neurosyphilis?

RE: Opinion on knock-off batteries for laptop...?

I think what one gets is a luck of the draw. I bought a no brand one for my HP laptop about five months ago off e-Bay. Worked great till it didn't. Timed its life this morning. Full charge to dead in six minuets.

RE: How many times hve you heard a woman say it

You can use a pain scale but since everyone's tolerance is different it's still a bit of apples and oranges. My 7 may be another person's 10. But I'd still like to see ANY man go through 40 hours of back labor like I did LOL! Didn't you just get your 40 hours of labor out the door? Hope you remembered to change the locks. LOL And I'm not going to take your challenge. To all moms, THANK YOU!

RE: Towing to Crater Lake Oregon

Didn't say when you plan on going but watch the NPS site for updated info. https://www.nps.gov/crla/index.htm Do the lake loop drive or take a trolley. They make several stops. I have taken our 35' around the lake twice, the road is narrow and rough in some places but totally doable. Walk around the Lodge for some nice views. The food at the lodge and the snack bar is $$$ but decent. There is a restaurant down near the South entrance which was reasonably priced two years ago. Stop at the logging museum at Collier St Park. The campground is closed due to fire damage but the museum is limited open. It too had fire damage. https://stateparks.oregon.gov/index.cfm?do=park.profile&parkId=165

RE: SLC-Teton-Yellowstone-SLC Trip Advice

If you got smartphones get an app for Yellowstone. We used "Just Ahead" app and it was worth the cost. Wife set her iPhone to play through the radio and then we could vote to take the side-trip. Others have said the National Parks App is good too. We did Yellowstone last year with our then 14, 11 year old grandsons and our 7 year granddaughter. Wish we would have had your SUV as the Focus is getting too small for them. Took one day off and just fooled around the campground or the kids would have mutiny.

RE: Reno NV to Coos Bay OR

I have an allergic reaction every time I I get on a freeway so this is the route I would take. Little longer than I-5. https://www.google.com/maps/dir/Reno,+NV/Oakridge,+OR/Coos+Bay,+OR/@43.8003577,-123.1433425,9z/data=!4m35!4m34!1m15!1m1!1s0x809940ae9292a09d:0x40c5c5ce7438f787!2m2!1d-119.8138027!2d39.5296329!3m4!1m2!1d-120.9115449!2d41.3441797!3s0x54cc7a4cf53d5f09:0xef1aa23a112da461!3m4!1m2!1d-121.7129204!2d42.2094707!3s0x54c8d58df8c2f29f:0xb33c0cc403133ddf!1m10!1m1!1s0x54c72e512f94c9ad:0x85928a35c10c9d8f!2m2!1d-122.4617159!2d43.7465124!3m4!1m2!1d-123.4999375!2d44.0734366!3s0x54c10e974c14f9fd:0xdda282b1297fc839!1m5!1m1!1s0x54c3842b1c6c04e1:0x67d7f4c7ddc01229!2m2!1d-124.2178903!2d43.3665007!3e0 The only major grade is on OR 58 Willamette Pass about 6 miles 6%, well marked. Several 45 mph corners. As Collier Campground is closed as noted, museum is limited. It is a shame as they had great logging displays. Crater Lake NP for sure. You can drive around the lake or take a bus tour which isn't too bad. I have taken my 35' MH around, road is narrow with rough spots. Diamond Lake is fairly close to the north entrance of the park and the mosquitos always enjoy fresh meat. There is a casino near Chiloquin https://klamoyacasino.com/ I can't recall what the stay limit is maybe 3 days. Food is decent. Fuel next door at truck stop. Could day trip up to Crater Lake. Lots of stuff in the Bend, OR area. Here is one idea. https://www.visitbend.com/points-interest/newberry-national-volcanic-monument-newberry-caldera/ and https://www.fs.usda.gov/recarea/deschutes/recarea/?recid=66159 If you do decide to go toward Bend you can take US 20 west overs Santiam Pass, 5 miles 6% grade. At bottom of pass, (left turn) follow OR 126 west. DO NOT attempt OR 242 unless you take the toad. The Dee Wright Observatory is worth the drive if you hit one one of the days that you can see into next week. https://www.fs.usda.gov/recarea/willamette/recarea/?recid=4403 Enjoy!

RE: Gas RV Front Table Ideas

Do a search for Lagun table mounts. They have some interesting ideas, not cheap but might give some ideas.

RE: We bought my first motorhome. Help!

For handling start low cost. Get an axle weight at the local scale loaded like you travel. Adjust your load to proper limits. Look up the tire manufacture inflation table for your weight and set tires to that amount plus 5 pounds. I think on yours you can do what is known as the "Cheap Handling Fix" AKA CHF. Do a search for it and you will find some videos. Not hard to do. While you are under there look at the rear sway bar bushings. They are likely toast as until about 2012 Ford used a soy based product that rotted away. Also the bushing mounting bolts have a habit of loosening and then causing the bracket to break. Replace with poly bushings. Head to eBay and get them from https://www.ebay.com/itm/Ford-F53-Class-A-Motorhome-chassis-REAR-Polyurethane-Sway-Bar-Bushings-1999-2011/270661240746?fits=Model%3AF53&hash=item3f04aac7aa:g:8b0AAMXQhuVROBxO He make top quality ones. Then when you install them tight tighten to 66# with Blue Locktite. Then you can start down the hardware dollar path.

RE: Lassen Volcanic NP Highway 89

Long back story on how I ended up on it going North mid spring but the snow gate was closed at the top. Had to U-turn. I spent my other life in a truck and I wouldn't recommend towing your trailer at least on the south side. The road doesn't have much for shoulders and it is about as crooked as a politician. Nice scenery, wife didn't see much of it. Not saying you can't do it, I just wouldn't recommend it.

RE: Ford V10 Triton Drivetrain

My 2007 'C' had the 5 Speed. My 2016 'A' has the 6 Speed, really like it. The 5 speed has it quirks but it is a solid transmission. Either way I wouldn't let the transmission be your deciding factor.

RE: Traveling from Bryce Canyon to Moab

The safe route would be to go west on 12 to 89 and take I-70 then 191. But if you want scenic take 12 east to Torry then 24 to I-70 and 191 to Moab. IMO 12 scares more people but it is a decent road, you just need to drive it. Couple of hard short climbs. Lots of RV's of every size on it. You won't sent any speed records om it. From Torry on it is just another road. We broke the trip up and over-nighted in Torry at the Rim Rock RV Park. Nothing fancy had a full serve restaurant and a decent burger and shake joint down by the RV park. Early November and had the place to ourselves. Good gas stop at the Sinclair station just to the east of Escalante.

RE: Northeast Oregon

There was (is?) a city park with about 5 spaces of RV parking in Mitchell, OR not to far from Painted Hills. Had 30 amp electric and two water risers. Don't see it listed now. Was there in 2016. Clyde Holliday St Park might be your best bet but about 70 miles to Painted Hills. Last year I checked out a few others in the general area that sounded good but plans changed. Wallowa St Park is really nice. No cell reception in the park as of 2016. We stayed at Wallowa River RV Park, a small mom and pop operation. Nice guy, laid back. River on on side of property if you like to drown worms. Shorter drive through sites. Sisters Creekside in Sisters, OR nice park. Kinda close quarters but nice. Walking distance into town and restaurants. Tumalo St Park is another one near by. Mtn. View RV in Baker, OR is a nice place. Well maintained, friendly staff. Decent fuel stop in Redmond is a Fred Meyer Fuel. Good in/out. I thought I saw that the Oregon Trail Interpretative Center was closed this year for repairs so you might check the website. EDIT: Looks like the city park in Mitchell is open. https://www.mitchelloregon.us/stay
