RE: I-95 Death Row takes 3 more.

An estimated 52 percent of car accidents occur within 5 miles of a person's home, and 77 percent occur within 15 miles or less. Far more deaths occur on rural roads than on city streets according to the NHTSA. For many folks, the most dangerous road is the one on which they have lost a loved one. For me, that is Riverwatch Parkway in Augusta, GA.

RE: Which RV is right for you QUIZ

Too simplistic to be meaningful.

RE: Smaller TT's with ducted air

We had a Forest River Surveyor Sport that, at 25', met all your criteria. I think it was a 2013 model. Rob

RE: Towing with silverado

It's all about payload. What does the yellow door sticker on your truck say about payload? Is the 6,800 lbs. you quote the dry weight or the GVWR of the trailer? (Need to use the GVWR of the trailer and about 12% of that to calculated loaded tongue weight). With half and 3/4-ton trucks, it's not about towing capacity - it's about payload. The 5.3 is a strong motor. If you don't mind 3,500 RPMs for extended periods, it's a good puller. Use the search function on the forum and you will find many threads on weights and capacities for tow vehicles. Rob

RE: timbrens

I installed them on our previous truck (2013 Sierra 2500HD D/A). They did not affect the unloaded ride and did exactly what was needed with 3,000 lbs. pin weight on the truck - stopped the bottoming out on bridge transitions, etc. The rig also felt more stable with less bouncing. I was very happy with them. Rob

RE: Military Chapter/Group within Good Sam?

The Escapees forums have a "Veterans" sub-forum. I've never heard of anything with Good Sam. Rob

RE: Absolute positively the worst road ever

104 isn't the "real" mountains in NM. Try US-64 from Taos through Angle Fire and Eagle Nest heading to Raton towing. These roads are a challenge, but I'll take them any day over the interstates in Louisiana. Rob

RE: I-10 Louisiana

It's true. I-20 through Shreveport is about as bad... if not worse. Rob

RE: Desert Southwest suggestions

I wouldn't come to the area without seeing White Sands National Park (yes, it's a National Park, now) or Carlsbad Caverns. Rob

RE: Credit Card apps

We bank (and have insurance with) USAA, which has only one physical location in San Antonio, TX. Therefore, all our banking is on-line. I have the USAA app on my phone to deposit the odd check that we receive (all of our regular income streams are direct deposit). I have used the phone app once to transfer some money to my daughter's account. USAA is very security conscious and updates the app and their web site regularly to maintain security. You would have to check into your bank's security practices. Rob

RE: Light Fifth Wheel Series M-297RLS

Our dealer used to carry Open Range - dropped them due to quality and warranty issues. Rob

RE: Looking for RV parks near Boston MA

If you're eligible, there's Hanscom AFB outside the loop NNW of Boston and Fourth Cliff Recreation Area on the coast SE of Boston (both military campgrounds). We have also stayed at Pinewood Lodge Campground in Plymouth, MA, while exploring the area. https://www.rvparky.com/ can be quite useful, too. Rob

RE: directv to dish

Besides posting in the wrong forum, have you used the search function above? There are MANY threads on DirectTV and Dish (and moving from one to the other). We have Dish For My RV with a Wally receiver and a Pathway X2 antenna. Our bill is about $58/month with locals and we change our location using a phone app when we move. The whole setup has worked extremely well for 4-1/2 years of full-timing. You only mention your receiver... you realize that the antennas are not interchangeable? The LNBs and switches are specific to each carrier. Rob

RE: Grand Design vs Mini Winnie plus?

Although Winnebago now owns Grand Design, GD operates as an independent company. Given similar build quality on both units, the thing that would set the two apart would be Grand Designs reputation for service (and I have experienced their first-rate customer service myself). You have to decide if a few extra features (the extra door, etc.) and the customer service are worth it to you. Rob

RE: Mount trailer tires yourself at home?

Without an iron tireman (what we used to call a tire machine in the old days), and a balancer, I wouldn't dream of it. I grew up on my dad's Texaco service station driveway in the '60s. He had an employee who was a rather large fellow who had worked for Firestone before working for my dad. He could fasten the rim down on the tire machine, soap up the beads on a new Cadillac tire, and push the first, and then the second bead down over the rim by hand. The pneumatic cylinder(s) and power attachments were there for the rest of us... Rob

RE: methotrexate injecting what size needle?

I use 27g 1/2" That is a pretty standard needle for sub-Q insulin injections and would work fine for your purpose. Rob (retired Army nurse)

RE: Propane vs Electric Heating

When we spend extended periods in SoCal, it's at a big Escapees park. They have on-site propane with VERY low prices. With metered electric, propane is significantly more economical - but I have to take a 30 lb. tank up to the filling point every week or two if the weather is cool. Rob

RE: CPAP and CBD oil

You'll have no problem with the CPAP. The CBD oil may contain trace amounts of THC - which could land you in a Mexican jail. Rob

RE: Grand Design Reflection 150 Series

The generator prep option is not available on the Reflection or Reflection 150 series fifth wheels from the factory. I know a couple of people who have installed generators in the Reflection 337RLS, though. The generator prep package can be optioned from the factory on the Solitude and Momentum lines. You can go the the GD "Build and Price" tool on-line to verify this. Rob
