RE: Redwoods...Ave of the Giants and Newton Drury Pkwy

I would suggest you spend a couple of nights at the Ancient Redwoods RV Park right on the Avenue of the Giants and use your tow car to explore the area. It's a great RV Park and very convenient for seeing the area.

RE: Hwy 93 from Missoula to Salmon, ID.

A good portion of it is right alongside the Salmon River so it is a little twisty-turny but very doable as long as you don't take the curves too fast. When we did it a few years back in our 40' Phaeton pulling a Jeep, we found it to be very enjoyable and scenic. We spent a couple of nights at the Canyon Pines RV Resort about 9 miles south of Riggins and stayed in site 31 which is a pull-through right on the river and found it to be delightful, however there was no cell service when we were there though there may be now.

RE: Route from Billings to St Mary KOA East Glacier

Other posters have recommended Duck Lake Rd, MT 464, as flatter and straighter. I would agree with the other posters here. 464 from Browning to St. Mary is a much easier drive than 89. Besides being pretty twisty/turny, 89 has a significant down grade for a couple of miles coming down to St. Mary that most like to avoid - it will definitely exercise your braking system! 464 is a very nice drive and only adds about 10 miles which can almost be driven faster than taking 89 through the mountains.

RE: Just beginning to do homework

OP, it sounds like you have done quite a bit of research but I think your timeline is still quite a bit rushed. You may want to look at our 2009 Trip to see how and what all we did on our little over six-month trip. We went from NE Florida so it was a little farther than yours will be but it was still 13,000 miles and that didn't include going up the Inside Passage on the Marine Ferry. Their is an expense summary at the end of the trip report you may also find useful though that was in 2009 when gas was more expensive than now but other things are more expensive now. As others have mentioned, take your time going through British Columbia and Alberta as that is some of the best scenery on the trip, especially the Icefield Parkway between Banff and Jasper National Parks, We used the Church book and Milepost for most of our planning as others have mentioned. I would suggest getting the Canada Annual Discovery Pass to save money while in Canada and the Alaska Toursaver Coupon Book to get two for one pricing on most of the tours you will want to take. Between the two, we saved close to a thousand dollars. Most importantly, just take your time and enjoy it. There is so much to see you will need some down time to just relax and breathe!

RE: Safety issue in handicapped bathrooms

I design restroom layouts and specify components as part of my job. There are not many option variables as we need to strictly stay within the parameters of ANSI 117.1 guidelines (ADA is a whole other matter.) Some of the few alternates are knurled and peened surfaces ILO of typical satin nickel finishes. https://i.imgur.com/LUmhtdhl.jpg Though possible, there is not much variation as a whole as the overall dimensions must be adhered. One of the largest suppliers of grab bars with whom I deal does not offer the knurled option in their catalog. Ed, do you think the peened surface would make a difference? I have installed the peened surface grab bars from Lowes and HD in our bath at our S&B and on the outside stairs at our summer place in Waynesville, NC. They have proved to be very resistant to slipping and provide all the support we need, even when wet.

RE: Lessons Learned From RV Cover Erection

The main thing I learned is to overbuild. If you build for a specific sized current RV, you will need to do it again if you get something larger. We built a 40 foot long cover for our 35 foot MH then two years later bought a 40 foot MH. Needed to expand the cover but couldn't find anyone to do it!

RE: Help getting fridge to run while underway

Still don't know what kind of rig it is so will not waste time guessing. It sounds like a 12V problem that occurred when the system switched from the converter to the alternator and perhaps popped a circuit breaker but really need more info.

RE: Help getting fridge to run while underway

It would help TREMENDOUSLY if we knew the make, model and year of your motorhome!!! They are all different and each has its own idiosyncrasies.

RE: Good rest area arounf Buffalo Wyoming

If you are just wanting a safe place to park for a few minutes, there is a Parking Area on I-90 westbound just a mile or two before the US-16 exit in Buffalo. You will see a sign that says Parking Area 750 Feet. Make sure you get in the right lane quickly as it comes up very fast. There is also an Exxon station with truck lanes just west of the exit on US-16.

RE: NC Florida to Montgomery

If you are not staying at The Woods in Montgomery, I would suggest staying on 231 around the east end of Montgomery up to I-85 and then take it west to I-65, much less traffic that way.

RE: NC Florida to Montgomery

US 231 from I-10 to Montgomery is a very good four-lane road we have traveled many times and is our preferred route headed north through Alabama. You will find that Montgomery South RV Park is a good bit out of the way and may want to do as the previous post recommends and stay at Deer Run just north of Troy or at The Woods in southern Montgomery off US-80 just before you get onto I-65.

RE: Along I-84 in Southern Idaho

You may want to read the write-up of our stay near Twin Falls in 2011. It is located here. Subsequent posts cover other areas in Idaho and Montana.

RE: A B Switch

We had a similar issue when we had a DirecTV SWM system and found that unplugging the receiver (in our case, including the SWM power supply) prior to making any A-B switch changes eliminated any problems. Yes, you have to wait for everything to boot up again but no big deal in the big scheme of things.

RE: Blue Ridge Parkway info??

You may want to take a look at our trip blog where we did the complete length of the BRP and the Skyline Drive in a little over five weeks. We stayed at RV parks just off the BRP and made day trips in the Jeep. There are lots of pictures with some of each campsite as well. We were in a 40 foot MH so required a little different places than you might. The start of the BRP portion of the trip was Old Fort, NC.

RE: Route around Atlanta

The route isn't as important as the timing. Absolutely true!! Go through mid-morning between 9:30-11:00, stay in the second lane from the right and you'll have no trouble straight through on I-75.

RE: Road side assist

One thing to be careful of also is the Good Sam ad for 59.95 is only for six months, not the year most services price includes!

RE: Carson City, NV

We stayed there in 2013 and our blog entry for that stop is located at MyTripJournal including a couple of pictures of our site.

RE: Sharing our location/travels with others

You may want to try My Trip Journal. The free version allows limited pictures (still quite a few) and the paid version ($99/year), which we used until this year, allows unlimited pictures. It's very easy to use and you have maps available showing where you stopped. If you click on the link in our signature you can see 13 years of our posts. The only downside I have found is it is a little slow at times.
