RE: 1" to 3/8" thread adapter?

Have your friendly neighborhood welder weld a flat washer to one side of a 3/8 nut then weld that to one side of the 1" nut. Used a fender 3/8 fender washer if needed. Might work.

RE: Help me plan my trip! North Dakota (TRNP) & Minnesota (VNP)

An interesting day trip when in the Medora ND area is the "Enchanted Highway" between Gladstone ND and Regent ND. Huge metal sculptures along the side of the road. Our grand children loved them. DW and I did too!

RE: UP with hookups

This last summer we were running the "Great River Road" and stayed at the "Mississippi Palasidades State Park" in Savanna Il. $15 per night with electric only. Water and dump station at the entrance. Nice place. Next night we stayed at the COE Blackhawk Campground in De Soto Wi. $13 per night with the America the Beautiful pass. Again electric only with water and dump station at the entrance. Also a nice place.

RE: Water pressure regulator

I have always used a water pressure regulator. I also carry 2 types. The preset straight through Valterra.$10 or so on Amazon, and the Twinkle Star adjustable pressure gauge also avaivable on Amazon for $25.00. We have stayed in RV parks who's water pressure was so high that they wouldn't let you hook up to their water unless you had a pressure regulator.

RE: Northwest coast of U.S.

So many great suggestions. One of our favorites is Cape Blanco State Park in Port Orford Oregon. A short walking trail leads to a huge, long beautiful beach.

RE: Twin Falls ID to Las Vegas NV Advice

Just ran Rt 93 from Twin Falls to Las Vegas 3 weeks ago. We stopped for a night in Jackpot at the Spanish Gardens RV park and at the KOA in Ely. Both were good campgrounds. As mentioned RT 93 is about 40 miles longer but there is very little traffic and you pick up I-15 just north of Las Vegas. Good road conditions and scenery. We topped off our fuel in Caliente. We enjoyed the ride in our 26ft class C RV no tow.

RE: Passenger Side Seat Arm Rest

Got it. There is a small pin that acts as a lock and it became detached from the mount. I was able to find it and press it back into the mount. And all's well. We still have another month or so on the road and one of the last things I need is anything to happen to that seat!!!!

Passenger Side Seat Arm Rest

So DW lowers the arm rest and the thing pops out of the back rest and falls on the floor. The thing has a pin that attaches it to the seat,but when I tried to put it back in place there isn't anything to secure it too. Has anyone had this happen. I guess an auto body shop might know. On day 45 of our trip and knock on wood this is the only problem...So Far.... 2020 Ford E450 standard equipment.

RE: Florida Rt. 98

Thanks for the ideas. I use RV-LIFE campground reviews, Google, RVParky and Campedium. I'm going to try the planner that Pianotuna suggested too. I was looking for members personal favorites, however after looking at the nightly site fees, I might camp inland and day trip the coast. The Rock Crusher Canyon looks just right. You folks are great. As always Thanks.

Florida Rt. 98

We are going to be heading east soon to Tampa from Las Vegas soon. I'm in the planning stage. Looking at the map I'm thinking of jumping on to Florida Rt 98 and running the coast south. I'm thinking Rt98 from Pensacola to Crystal River or so. I thought I saw some campground suggestions here in the past but I can't find them. I'm checking out RV life Campground Reviews, but I'm wondering what campgrounds you folks have used and enjoyed. Also any side trips that are interesting. We like ocean views. 26ft Class C no tow.

RE: Las Vegas Nevada to Tampa Florida

Just arrived in Las Vegas Yesterday. I'm going to work my way South at Jackson and Hattiesburg to I-10 but I'm thinking I'll pickup Fla Rt 98 south of Pensacola and run that for a while. I read there are some very nice campgrounds along that road. As always thanks for the suggestions they helped me a lot!!

Las Vegas Nevada to Tampa Florida

Well it's time to start our journey back toward home (Seekonk Ma.). We will be visiting family in Las Vegas Navada. Starting from there Google is showing: I40 to Amarillo Texas-287 to Fort Worth Texas, which I'd like to avoid,then pick up I20 to Jackson Mississippi-Rt 49-Rt98 to Mobilethen I10 to Florida. My destination is Tampa, we will continue N/east after our family visit, but once we're in Florida I'll probably take some of the coast roads south to the Tampa area. I know this is a long drive and asking folks to spend some extra time on the response, but as always DW and I appreciate your help.

RE: Virginia City Mt. To Bannack then on to RT 93 in Idaho

Thanks ReeneG, that's the route I wanted. It looks like a nice ride. We're not in a rush at all.

Virginia City Mt. To Bannack then on to RT 93 in Idaho

I'm seeing 287 to 41 then find a campground for a visit to Bannack. However I have no idea what these routes are like. I really don't want to travel dwn dirt roads. Afterward I'd like to get over to St 93 in Idaho. Then take it south. I'm thinking 278 to 43 but again the road conditions matter. As always I appreciate your advise. Oh 45 days on the road and so far so good....Knock on Wood.... I'm in Medora right now. DW and I are going to take in the Cowboy Musical Saturday night then head to Virginia City. So far all the campground We have visited are pretty much full. Gas around $4.00/ gallon. We are driving a 2020 26' Class C

RE: Do I need to condition my slide seals against drying out?

I use Talc powder. Pour some into an old sock, tie off the top and apply to the rubber gaskets/seals. Can actually hear the slide speed up when opening/closing. Doesn't attract dirt or dust.

RE: Fuel Availability

I live near in Massachusetts near Providence RI and have been to Connecticut, New Hampshire and Maine in the last 2 weeks and there is plenty of Deisel fuel. I didn't notice the price though. I was talking to a fellow camper this last weekend. He has a Super C that he just ran back home to Ma. From Florida. He said he had no problem getting fuel all the way up the east coast.
