RE: Missouri hwy 19

As long as you are traveling HWY 19 to Cuba you need to stop off at Herman MO. An old German town lots to see and do. Great rv park just before Herman Laxy Days

RE: Roof Caulk Question

I would say basically you are correct. However its not just the average sealer used. For the roof I have used the dicor self leveling product. For the side application I use Sikaflex Sealant for RVs, its a great product.

RE: Missouri hwy 19

Its a good scenic typical Ozark road. However if you want to make time its not the road to do it on. I would either go back to St. Louis and catch 44 or go to west on 70 to Kingdon City and take 54 to 5 to 44. We drive that all the time its a good heavy traveled road.

RE: Class C vs Trailer for Cross country with family? Help

You are going to get a lot of ideas for folks. All will be good, but remember the finial is up to you. My thoughts, you are planning far enough in advance to start looking. New or used, TT or 5th wheel, size of Class C. I would take your family while looking sit in each unit and see how things go. Moving around in the unit, cooking etc. I always want to see what I can get to when the slide are in. Its important to me to have access to the bathroom, frig. and mic when slides are in. With a family the size and age I would be looking at a 5th wheel toy hauler type model. I think a C would be to small for your needs. Have fun looking!

RE: Class A Roadside Assistance

I have GS and have for many years with no problem. Over the years I have used it maybe 4 or 5 times all tire related. The thing to remember is its Roadside Assistance not Roadside Repair. There job is to get you to a place to get things fixed.

Required signing waiver of responsibilty

Well its finally happened to me. I have reservation since Dec for a campground in Wisconsin for over the 4th, site had to be paid in full on the date the reservation was made. That was not really a big deal. Well just this week received an email with a required signature. This waiver was releasing the park from "any" responsibility due to injury of any kind while at the park. It covered walking and falling, playground equipment related injury. The list goes on. I just wanted you all to know if you are planning a trip to Kieler Wisconsin, I would think twice about staying at Rustic Barn Campground.

RE: Toilet seats

Yes they should, I would however take a few measurements. Distance between bolts, front to back of bowl and side to side.

Toll roads or not

In the latter part of September (covid permit) a group of 3 rigs will be finishing our 4000 mile trip of the n.e. I have reservations made at the parks between Bar Harbor Maine and Cleveland Ohio. We plan on stopping at Littleton, MA and Bloomsburg, PA. Never really traveling via Toll roads I have a few questions. Our we better to travel off interstates on the way to Cleveland? I started to plan that way but found it very hard to travel the east without finding you are on a toll road. If toll road are we better to get the Ezpass or pay cash? From what I read we pay forward on the ezpass, so if we do not use our money up do we get it back? Any other suggestions would be helpful. I have made reservations at all the rv parks along the way.

RE: Week in Maine. Where would you go?

I have a trip planned for Maine in September. Right now Maine has very strict policies on folks coming into Maine through July. If the policies hold I have to cancel all sorts of spots.

RE: Over the air antenna

I have had and now do have the winegard, it gets about as many channels and any of the others (I think) I like the fact that it raises off the roof for more height. At one point I took off the winegard and replaced it with the King. I found with the King it had a little longer reach but was more picky as to direction. Then I got a rig that had the King mounted to the roof in a very bad spot. The reception was behond bad, I felt the King needed the height and in my case a better on roof location. I then went for a Antop Omni directional Attenna I found it as good as another. The nice thing was I did not have to turn it to get stations. So for me all three were as good as each other. Just remember no matter where you are or how far from a tower you will always get a PBS station.

RE: Newbie - Class A or Class C

I think DrewE nailed it for you. When we were looking at moving from a nice 5th wheel to a MH we looked hard at both A & C. We quickly moved away from C's for a couple reasons. When sitting in the passengers seat my wife's legs would have to be off to the side, not comfortable for her. Who would have thought. Also very limited travel from front seat to coach when moving. Class A just made things easier all around. But like Drew said take time and sit in the unit picture doing stuff. Even in the Class A make sure you can get to bathroom, frig, microwave with slide in.

RE: Best Wheel Chocks

When I had my 5th Wheel I used the B&L chocks that go between the wheels. I never had a problem with them.

RE: wash wax TT ?

I am a believer in Nu-Finish have been for years. However on my older camper that I have now it does not mix well with the graphics. I still use Nu-Finish but do not touch the graphics. I have found McKees Marine and RV vinyl and graphic restore finish. It has brought the graphics back to life.

RE: Pumping from the lake.

I would not use a submersible pump. I would think it would pick up more matter from the bottom of the lake. I would rather have a land pump then a filter on the lake end of a hose. That way the pump will stay clean.

RE: Lost Power on all appliances - Microwave, A/C, outlets

You say you are plugged into 50amp. Check that breaker and do both of the legs have power. When you did your inhouse breakers to reset did you turn all of them off then on. Check your GFI outlets make sure they are not tripped. As stated before double check the battery wiring make sure you did not miss a cable. I know about that from experience drove me crazy for a couple days then a non connected wire showed up. Make sure you did hook up correct wires to pos. and neg posts. Is your battery disconnect switch turned on.

RE: Bar Harbor,Maine

Have not stayed there, but have reservations for later part of September. Hadleys Point Campground seemed to fit the bill for me while looking for a place to stay. Here is a link for them talking about covid 19 etc.

RE: Battery disconnects above door

The one for the "house" battery turns off most but not all of the 12 volt items in the coach. That switch is mainly used when you are storing your coach for a long period of time. That will eliminate a lot of battery drain. As my coach is plugged in all the time I have never used the switch. I believe that by turning the switch off when plugged in it also stops the battery from being charged (I could be wrong on that). If you have a switch for the engine battery it does the same thing, I have never had a coach with a engine battery switch so really do not know. To me it seems kind of useless as you do not have a battery disconnect switch on you car. For most part if not storing for along period of time leave them on.

RE: Leveling Question

Did you use the "auto level" or manual level? I have found that at times the auto level will raise the coach more than is needed. I have gone back to doing the manual level more often than not for that reason. If you did use auto level you might want to read the manual on how to recalibrate the system.

RE: Southeast Florida to Sheboygan, Wisconsin RT
