RE: Escaping heat next summer?

We spent a month this year (August) traveling the Northern part of North Dakota, Minnesota, and the UP. Not much in ND we stayed a week at a great FHU in Minot. We a city but not for a week. We then went on to Baudette Minnesota, the Walleye capital of the world. Great FHU campground, close to Baudette which is a great little city. I see you fish, you will have alot to do here, its all about fishing up here. After a week here went to Curtis Michigan in the middle of the UP. What a great place stayed in a great FHU campground for a week. Again this place is all about fishing! We felt very safe from the covid all over our travels as mask wearing was mandatory for all.

RE: Motor Home/Trailer Life Magazines Cease Publication

This seems like a good spot to add this. Received my Highway magazines the other day. Do you all remember when it was full of stories and great information. For me this last issue was just another extension of the advertising for CW.

RE: 2020 Escape Hybrid Towing Question

I can not help directly on the subject, however I can address the steering wheel lock or unlock. Years ago I pulled a jeep, my first trip I did not reed the directions fully and had the steering wheel locked. When I got to my destination about 2 hours away the front tires on the jeep blew out. I could see where the were rubbing from not being able to turn. Lesion learned make sure you unlock the steering wheel the front needs to track.

RE: Turning pivot points for 40’ RV class A

I will jump on this band wagon and agree with all others, practice, practice, practice. Its the best tool. I think Mommalu hit it on the head! I find with my tow dolly ( i am sure 4 down will be the same) you need more turning room so you do not run over the curb. Its in the mirrors, they tell the story. I learned alot about turning watching how truck drivers handle the turns, bus drivers are another one to watch. Good Luck and enjoy

RE: trip to mt rushmore

I am sure you will enjoy Branson. If you like Prime Rib you need to try the Center Stage Bar and Grill. Their smoked Prime Rib is to kill for. Enjoy your time in Branson

RE: trip to mt rushmore

Just finished a month traveling from Minot ND, Northern Minnesota and the UP of Michigan. Then back home to Branson, the reason I said that was for safety. The northern folks really take the mask and being safe to heart. It was pleasant to go there. Branson on the other hand is like returning to the wild wild west. There is a lot of things to see and do here. The key is you have to take the mask and distancing under your control. The shows are the biggest problem for covid safety. We just went to the Sight and Sound Theater to ask about their safety, was going to get tickets to see NOAH. Anyway we were told on September 8 they are opening the theater back up to full seating no safety etc. We did not buy tickets. Please come to Branson but take it upon yourself to be safe.

RE: 32 Foot Class A vs 32 Foot Class C

Not ever owning a class C I can only say why I do not. Storage is a big thing, the A will have alot more outside storage than a C. The inside will be larger in an A because you have the whole front area where a C you do not. Its easier for the passenger to get up and move around in an A where a C its a little more difficult. I could be wrong on this but most C's do not have leveling jacks where A's do that to me is important. Good luck just do alot of leg work in your search.

RE: Toilet Smells Horrific When Flushing

Just muy guess! You hooked up 4" dryer vent piping to the top of each vent stack. Did you remove the vent stack cover? Are you venting the dryer hose straight up, no bends or angles? If its a long run you may want to get some type of inline fan to help draw the oder out. When you empty the black tank are you rinsing the tank also? Maybe you are not allowing the black tank to fill enough before emptying. Depending on the size of the tank twice a week may be to often. I would keep flushing the tank until clean water comes out.

RE: Grey Tank leaks

I have in the past used fiberglass cloth and rosin to repair a crack in on of my holding tanks. I first drilled a small hole at each end of the crack to keep it from expanding. I sanded the area down cleaned it up and went ahead with the fiberglassing. The down side was I was working against good old gravity. This made appling the rosin very messy. That being said it worked for me.

RE: STL > SD > WY Route

I respect what you are planning, however I think you are planning way to much in a short period of time. When I plan trips I take the day drive night plus 2 nights as a min. That gives time to relax and really see the sights. Your list has way to many things you plan on doing. The 1880 train is a full day, badlands and wall drug at least two days. Its not like you are going to get up and get everybody starting a 6 in the morning. I would bet you would not get started much before 10 to see the sights. Oh how long do you plan on leaving your dogs in the camper!! I find 6 hrs for mine is ok 8 is a stretch. So that cuts into your sight seeing time. Just way to much going on, slow down cut this trip into two adventures I think you will be happier.

RE: Handling issues 2005 Fleetwood Expedition 34H

I bought my 07 Itasca Meridian with 380000 miles on it last year. I have the same cat c7 on a freightliner frame with michelin tires. When I first got the coach I took it to a trusted chassis shop to go over everything related to the chassis. While greasing the front steering zerks they noticed the front wheel bearings were not good. Point is make sure all of your frame components are in good working order before working on the tires. My coach runs straight and true with 95-100 psi in front and 100 psi rear.

RE: RV rental insurance

I would give Formost a call, they underwrite alot of RV policies for different companies. But rental is a different thing.

RE: Water hose threads...

Strange you asked, I sanitize the RV system every spring after de-winterizing. Believe it our not I also let bleach run the length of the fresh water (white) hose.

RE: Door peninsula Wisconsin

Just returned from Door County yesterday. A group of us stayed at Harbor Village. I would not recommend it for big rigs, long stays, or close to things. I you have kids its great tons for them to do. Stay in the not tree area however. They do not have sewer so plan ahead. From there to Gills Rock about 45 min drive. With that said my favorite is Hyland Court, http://www.hylandcourt.com/ have stayed there many times. FHU cable TV center for everything Door County. FHY all the business, staff, customers, all most everybody is very pro active in Covid protection. All most 100% mask wearing, it was very nice to see. Then I got back home to MO and see nothing.

RE: leveling jack stuck

For anything hydraulic, I would talk to a person that deals with hydraulic problems not and RV shop. Not down playing RV shops the good ones are great, but an hydraulic expert may give you a better answer. I have on jack that is slow to retract. At first I had to almost hammer it up. Then I thought why not use some dry spray lube on the exposed part. Since then about every other time I spray each part with spray lube and have had no problem.

RE: Are RV sewer hose supports necessary?

I have a cheep plastic expandable one. I have had it for years and have used it maybe 10 times. I have found the need if the distance from the camper connection to the sewer was a very long run, more than 10-12 feet. Probably could have done with out but as long as I had it I would use it. The other would be if the rv park sewer connection was high out of the ground I would us backwards, high in at sewer. It one of those things do you need probably not. Is it one of those things nice to have, kind of.
