RE: Oregon Coast in September

Smart on doing the jet boats. You will get wet and have a blast. The ride is surprisingly smooth, but your butt gets a little tired. Do at least the 80 mile trip. The two spots that they do the meal stops both have good food and decent prices. Our go to place is Kimball's Creek. They are the only RV park on the river with a dock that Jerry's stops at. You can book at the park. Place is a little dated but clean, lot of full timers and great people. If southbound GPS will route you off 101 north of Gold Beach on Edson Creek Road and it is a good county road.

RE: Costco batteries

Bought (4) 6 volt from them about 16 months ago. Doing as expected. Ad a watering system and keep them happy. Flow-Rite is one. On Amazon and some auto part stores.

RE: Flashlights

You can't go wrong with a Maglite. For me Maglite is about 50/50. I worked nights for most of my working time, always carried a Mini Mag on my belt. After several years the switch started to fail. I bet the last 10 years I have bought 6-7 of them. Last one I bought was bad out of the package. Plus all of the canvas holsters stitching when they switched from the leather pulls out in about 3 months. No more Mini Mags for me, but after several months I'm still reaching for it. Retired 5 years ago. Now the 2 and 4 cells I have had good luck with, beat the heck out of them and kept working. I think I may have had one go bad and the other I dropped when I was changing the batteries, and it landed on the open end of the tube.

RE: A Minor Consequence of Touch Screen Technology

I'm not a big fan of the touch screen in my vehicle. The big "distracted driving, don't use your cell phone or we will all die “ doesn't hold a candle to the display in your car. Does one need six different functions just to adjust the HACV system? And you have to look at the screen every time you touch it.

RE: Florida Plates; How to Prove We haven't Been There Lately.

No matter how much some of the Governors want to, they are not going to be able to demand your "papers" Nazi style. You may get asked at some point if an area is having real problems, but I wouldn't let it stop me from going. In each case simply stating where you are going and that you're a turtle (carrying your house on your back) and therefore are social distancing should end any questions as long as you don't leave the US. Yet.

RE: New Ford Chassis

Not enough of a change to be excited about! Let’s see independent front suspension, and an air ride option. Maybe they can gear them properly, many are under geared which makes them extremely slow, and OD useless. Not too mention having to turn on Tow Haul every time you start it! The air ride option might be sooner than some think. Ford’s 7.3L engine, an integrated air compressor will be available for the first time for the 2022 model year. The compressor can be used to power air brakes, air suspension, and other accessories like air horns or air ride seats. Currently, air brakes are only available on diesel-powered trucks. While it doesn't say that it will be offered on the F53 it doesn't rule it out.

RE: ? 12-Inch Female-Female Hose - What For?

Because you have a section of hose with male connections on both ends?

RE: TPMS TST 507 vs EEZRV tire system

I have the EEZ RV system. It works fine but if you buy that system and your RV is long (I'd say more than 28-30 feet), you better get the extender too. I had a 34 foot 5th wheel and occasionally one of the sensors would stop working. Now that I have a longer 5th wheel, I definately need the extender. The same might be true with the TST 507 system but I have no personal knowledge with that system. Your experience is the exact same as mine. My Bounder is 35' and my toad sensors would drop off. The extender solved that. Other than that it has worked fine.

RE: Best tow set up

I've been using a ReadyBrute with integrated ReadyBrake for over 10 years. Easy to hookup and works great. Another vote for ReadyBrute.

RE: Harbor Freight has lifetime warranty on hand tools

Bought a 3/4 drive set at HF. Flex bar became mortally wounded so I was watching it close. Finally died. Tossed it in the seat and went down to the store and got a new one. Checking out I was making small talk with the clerk and said my other one broke. She asked if I had it and told me to bring it in. Swapped it out on the spot. I didn't tell her I had about 4 foot of pipe on the end of it.

RE: Rescue California to Coeur d'Alene Idaho

If you go the way ramyankee suggest there is a great little park in Standish right where A-3 comes back into 395. Bunch of full timers in it but keeps the center section (drive through) open for travelers. We stopped in planned for an overnight and spent a second. DW found a slot at the casino she fell in love with. Food there was decent too. Making reservations was like this. "Yeah, I got room. What's you name? Please call if something comes up and you can't make it." Days End RV Park

RE: Recommendations for Moab campground Is where we stayed last year. I kind of put all of them on the wall and threw darts and hit this one. It is nothing spectacular. Average sites, very clean, most have plenty of room for toad parking. We ended up with the one of the few that didn't have sewer but I knew that when I made reservations. Sits up on a little hill above the road, traffic noise during the day but no big deal for us. Besides, we were out during the day and the night traffic is light. The managers are great, he is a kick to BS with with a interesting background. Hit the Moab Dinner in downtown. Usual hamburgers and stuff with a surprisingly large menu. Decent prices. Also the Moab Brewery on the south end of town. Came recommended but for some reason didn't make it. Moab Grill is another decent place that won't break the bank. Decent steak. Ate their 18 years ago and we had to try it again. Wasn't disappointed. The Maverick station at the south end of town handy place for fuel. Separate large vehicle pumps and you can go around the station to enter/exit. Canyonlands NP is nice, Entrance to it is north of Arches 15 (?) miles. Better views than most of Grand Canyon IMO. Hope that you are going to hit Bryce Canyon. I would go back there in a heartbeat.

RE: Pecking Order Gas Coaches under 35'

IMO I would scratch anything REV/Fleetwood makes. The poor quality of the structural work becomes very evident after 2-3 years. The fact that they are good at putting lipstick on a pig just makes it a pig with lipstick. 2016 Bounder

RE: Towing or packing a Smart Car on the back of a Class A

RE: Lightweight Generator From Israel

The biggest problem with a generator from Israel is that after 8 days you have to cut the plug off. I just spit coffee thru my nose. Yep. Not cut off. Just highly modified.

RE: Lolo to Walla Walla, WA

West of Clarkston you will have a 5-6 mile climb of about 4-6% and about a 3-4 mile decent into Pomroy with about the same grades. Couple of corners at the top that are a little sharper than they seem. After that it is nothing to get excited about. Couple of small grades but nothing to worry about.

RE: Rock hard ice cream

Make it vanilla ice cream a, bottle of Old Rasputin and make a float. Best of both worlds.
