RE: Route 64 New Mexico

Excellent, thanks. As I mentioned, we are planning on 2 or 3 days at the Angle Fire RV Resort, so we can drive around the "Enchanted Circle" then to the Aztec Ruins for 2 days. 2 years ago we spent 2 weeks exploring the southern part of the State, Carlsbad, Roswell, Silver City. Wonderful area.

Route 64 New Mexico

In late June I'm planning to pick up Rt 64 at Cimarron NM and follow it to Shiprock. Stop for 2 days in Angle Fire to run the Cimarron Loop, Rt 38 and 522. Then Rt 64 to the Aztec Ruins, and on to Shiprock. Our destination is Mesa Verde for a few days. I'll be traveling in our Jayco 27n Class C. We have no real time frame. Are these roads ok with this RV? On another thread I was advised against Rt 82 in Colorado. I appreciate this advise and changed my plans.Thought I'd run this leg of our trip by the group for similar thoughts. Mountain roads and elevation and unguarded dropoffs are ok. Hairpin, single lane blind spots that might require me to back up to let an opposing vehicle pass would cause me to seek an alternate route.

RE: Favorite campground on the Gunnison River

Great info. I appreciate it. I'm glad I posted about Rt 82. Will avoid it. This suggestion on avoiding Rt 82 has prompted me to go over my Routes heading into Mesa Verde. Looks like research and a new post!!! Thanks again.

RE: Favorite campground on the Gunnison River

Thanks Bussippper. We're planning on 4 or 5 days at Mesa Verde NP then it's into poke mode. Ghost Towns, that are accessible with our RV, are the theme for this trip. After Mesa Verde, and all these plans are subject to change at a moments notice, I was thinking of spending a night at Silverton then see if the roads will allow us to make it to Eureka, camp there then if conditions permit on to Animas Forks, then back to Silverton. Then, as you mentioned, Ouray and Ridgway enroute the Curecanti Recreation area, Gunnison river. Find a good camp there and then a couple day trips. Now we would like to do the Gunnison Gorge boat trip, but we might move to the South rim Campground, not sure. Then head north to Marble and Crystal and loop to Buena Vista via Rt 82 and St Elmo's.

Favorite campground on the Gunnison River

I've checked out the various campgrounds on the Gunnison River between Sapinero and Gunnison. Campgroundreviews, Google and the others seem to rate them as OK. I'm wondering if any of you folks have any favorites, private, state or whatever, in that area. We're planning to stay in the area for about a week and have no problem bouncing from one place to another to take in the different sights. We will be traveling in our Class C no tow. We will be working our way north to the South Rim Black Canyon campground then over to Buena Vista to visit St Elmo's. Will be in Colorado for the month of July.

RE: The Coronavirus

We're, DW and I, heading out for 10 weeks beginning June 16. We tend to camp at off the beaten track locations anyway and as stated here will practice prudent hygiene so I don't see a problem. We'll be a little more careful when picking up supplies and visiting interesting shops along our route. We will just continue to be aware of our surroundings and to live and enjoy life.

RE: KOA membership

We also use KOA, Good Sam and Passport America. We easily get our investment plus back on all 3 each year. We like staying at KOA and build up points. We built up enough points last year to earn 2 "free" nights at the Bar Harbor/Oceanside KOA in Maine. I also like Passport America, however the campgrounds that accept it have a lot of restrictions. But you can always depend on Good Sam to get $10 off per night pretty much everywhere. We are heading our for a 10 week trip in June. Our first 14 days are, 5 nights in KOA's, 4 nights in Passport America campgrounds and 5 Good Sams.

RE: ??? MOLD ??? Damp Area. ??? SOLUTION ???

Just a thought, pick up a small indoor/outdoor hygrometer (amazon $10) and see just what the relative humidity is for a week or two. I did this for a couple of weeks and found I was around 75% during the summer. Which I thought was high. I bought an Eva-dry Edv-2200 , mid size dehimidfier. Pulls 13 volts dc-4.6 amps off a 110 volt power supply. 2 liter capacity, compact. 8 1/2"w 14"h 6 3/4"d Supposed to be good for 2200 cubic feet gathering 20.5 oz of water per day. Now I have a smaller RV 22ft Class C and this unit kept it at 40%. I just let it run and checked it every couple of days. I only dehumidify in the summer when I'm parked in my yard between trips. Hope this helps.

RE: Which RV is right for you QUIZ

Hi Steve. Thanks for the advise. I'll keep it in mind. We're going on another 10 week trip this coming summer,2020, and again my route doesn't take me through Florida, Louisiana or Alaska. 2 years ago we passed close to Louisiana while we were running west on US 82 but didn't visit/camp there. However next year, 2021 , we're hoping to run the length of the Great River Road. Then I'll probably run through Northern Florida enroute Louisiana. We'll see.

RE: 2020 RV SHOW

The Rhode Island RV and camping show Feb. 28-29 and March 1 at the Rhode Island Convention Center Providence RI. Adults $12, $10 for Good Sam Members. Friday 4pm to 8pm 2 adults for $12. Parking at the Providence Place Mall which connects with the convention center via enclosed walkway so if it's raining you can stay dry. This is our cabin fever break out. We hit the show, walk the mall then have a nice meal at one of the restaurants in the mall. Nice time.

RE: Ford Starting /House Charging Question UPDATE Test

If my house batteries are very low and will not turn my generator over, can I engage the "engine emergency start" button to start the generator?Not trying hijack the thread, but it seems to be related.

RE: THOR Motor Coach

I bought a new beginers RV in September of 2015. A Thor Freedom Elite 22e. No slides Ford E-350 chassis. In 4 years we have completed 4 cross country trips totaling 42,000 miles. We have set up camp in 185 different campgrounds and have had the pleasure of camping a total of 271 nights. So far I have had to repair 1 drawer lock, 1 outside refrigerator access panel lock pin, 1 house battery and 1 entry door latch. I am meticulous with my maintenance procedures, which probably has prevented many failures. We would have liked to been able to afford spending another $20,000 for a "better" quality RV. But so far this one has served us well. We are planning another 10-12 thousand mile 10 week trip this summer. Oh I forgot to add that I had to replace all 6 tires because we wore them out...

RE: Must see in Maine?

On your way up the coast, don't forget the Booth Bay Harbor area. The Shore Hills Campground is an excellent camp. Big rig friendly and there are sites right along side the Black River. Lots to do with the Boothbay Railway Village across the road, lots of small shops along the way to Boothbay Harbor village which is still a "the way it used to be" place to visit.

Maximum rim air pressure

What is the maximum air pressure on the factory steel 16 inch rims on a 2016 Ford E350 chassis uses on my 22ft Class C? I know I saw it mentioned here before but I can't find it. Internet didn't help either.
