RE: New Furniture

We too have to replace our recliners sooner than later. I made the mistake of leaving the back window shade up and the sun shining in caused the upper back cushion of one to deteriorate. Ugh! The other is fine and I'm considering just covering it for now till next year. Talked to our RV tech and he said any RV specific recliner will cost double and is no better. And, as already said, the backs of home recliners come off for easy entry. As for ultra leather. We had in our last RV, a Komfort, pleather and it was super nice and durable. I don't know enough about ultra leather to comment.

RE: Best Built 5er?

............... Horizons RV seems to make the `best'. I wonder how they are doing? For $200,000 and up for a 5er they better make it the best! :E Agree, but the higher price you pay does not mean it will be built well and trouble free.

RE: Teacher's Pet

I'm so, so, sorry! My sincere condolences to you and all those who loved your Teacher's Pet. May you find peace and strength in the coming challenging days/months/years. Glad to see you will continue RV'ing.

RE: Do RV Batteries Freeze in the Winter?

Charged batteries will not freeze. Low or dead batteries will freeze. Unless you can gurantee that the batteries will stay fully charged, I would pull them and install a trickle charger if not inside a heated area. Doug Agree! Hubby maintains ours religiously throughout the winter AND keeps the FW plugged in. Never have had a problem.

RE: RV sale pending, but we found evidence of mice...

We had 2 mice in a campground this year. I didn't want to use poison and have them die in an inaccessible place so I used the old fashioned spring traps. Exactly! We use bait around our house. Well, guess what? One got in the 5w and died. Have no idea where or how because there has never been sign of them in there and we used spray foam or steel wool to block all holes, but one found a way in.

RE: Cell phone signal Booster ?

We have a Weboost installed in our FW. With 1 to 2 bars, we can connect with the Weboost "boosting" it to 3 bars. Depending on where we are sometimes 1 bar with the Weboost won't work.

RE: Colorado - Wyoming - Montana - Idaho

Great info!!! We can move the trip 3-4 weeks later so that we are there mid-August until Mid-October. 8 weeks is about our max plus 5-6 days each way. We are thinking that we might just do 2 states (MT & WY) in 2021. I obviously have a lot of research to do! Thanks again!!! On the other end of the spectrum, be prepared for colder weather at nights especially around end of Sept to Oct. We just returned from a two week trip to the Tetons and Yellowstone. We were there from Sept 14 thru 25th. First week and half lows were in the 40's, at the end it was 30's. After we left the lows dipped to a consistent mid to upper 20's. Beautiful daytime weather though!

RE: Booking Camping sites for 2021

For Idaho campgrounds it's 6 months out unless it has changed recently.

RE: Colorado - Wyoming - Montana - Idaho

Being from Idaho, those months can be really hot, especially in Idaho. Late August to mid-September is better.

RE: Keyless Entry

Yes, we did and really like it. The face plate is not the best quality, but that can easily be replaced as we have done.

RE: I needed to add an extra browser

Edge has a lot of problems. Chrome by far is the best as is FireFox.

RE: Easiest route from Boise, ID to Hungry Horse, MT

We live near Boise and have gone to Glacier/Hungry Horse several ways. The direct route up hwy 95 all the way to Missoula and Hungry Horse. We've also driven Hwy 55, over the Banks Lowman hwy to Lowman and hwy 21 to Stanley, then 75 to 93 to Salmon and up Missoula, then to Hungry Horse. Boise to Stanley is a good route for the person here who said not to do it. It is a mountain route, but with the right RV, tow vehicle, and experience, it's a beautiful route, but not as direct as through hwy 95. Enjoy your trip.

RE: What you need to know if you buy a macerator

We have a Noco Boost 2000 to power our macerator. We have that one as a charger for our diesel truck in case we need it when camping in freezing temps.

RE: Atlanta to Grand Canyon with 10 days

Can you extend your trip? We live in Idaho and we took two weeks to travel and stop from here through Utah to the North and South rim. It may work out for you, even in that timeframe depending on the way you like to travel.

RE: Alliance 5th Wheels

Haven't heard of any. Mine was built 5 years ago last month and is still very white. Thank you.

RE: PVC Roofing Material

If you are researching, check out TPO roofing. Be aware that it comes in multiple thicknesses. You want at least 60 mil. TPO is "heat welded"/bonded at all seams. Both PVC and TPO have a longer life than EPDM. Most experts will tell you that the maximum life of an EPDM roof is about 10 years, but often as little as 5 years. It should be replaced, not just re-coated. PVC is 15 years. Longevity on a TPO is anywhere between 10 to 20. Advantage, and a huge one for us, is that for a PVC, you do not have to clean it. We will rinse it off, but maintenance is not required.

PVC Roofing Material

We are looking at replacing our current rubber roof with PVC. I've found a lot of great information, but none says if the white PVC will discolor over time. A lot of RV's today have the new PVC roof, so I was wondering what your experience is. Thanks.

RE: Alliance 5th Wheels

Any issues with yellowing as other plastics? Our stove vent is yellowing as is our WeBoost antenna.

RE: Alliance 5th Wheels

Regarding your comment on the PVC roofing for this FW - I've done a lot of research on PVC roofs and it's good. We are about to replace our rubber roof and are seriously looking at a PVC for all the benefits. Not to mention it will be lighter in weight.
