RE: Pueblos West Co to Dinosaur Co

Thank You. Now I can figure out which campgrounds to use. This is the poke around part of our trip and 125 to 150 miles per day is our limit. No problem staying 2 or 3 days if we find a nice camp. Again Thanks.

RE: Onan 4000 generator cranks but won't start

Take the front cover off prime it for a minute or so then push the choke closed with your finger and hit the start while holding the choke closed. If your not sure which way is closed try one way and if it doesn't fire try the other, or take off the air cleaner and look down the throat of the carb. This is the only way my Onan will start when cold.

Pueblos West Co to Dinosaur Co

If all goes well I should be leaving Pueblo West next Thursday July 29th. Want to head west to Dinosaur. I'm thinking routes 50-285-24-i70-131-40. I would like to avoid the very high zig-zag roads as much as possible. Once I figure my route I'll start work on campgrounds. I'm traveling in my 26ft Class C no tow. As always all advise is appreciated.

RE: Enchanted loop NM

Finished the "circle" today. Was fantastic, and the RV had no problem with it at all. As always, I appreciate the advise. Now on to the Aztec Ruins and Monument Valley (again)!!!!

I84 Road Work in Waterbury Ct

Road crews are working on the bridges and have it down to 2 lanes on the west end of town. We had a 4 mile backup today. East bound was just as bad. Looks like this will be going on for a while.

RE: What's the best way to get RV anti-freeze out of system.

Is there an on board water filter that might be holding some anti freeze? Just a thought.....

RE: Streak remover

2x on Nu-finish and I use Rejex so. Nu-Finish is less expensive but doesn't seem to last as long the Rejex.

RE: Cost of RVing

My wife and I are heading out on June 20 for 3 or 4 months in our 26ft class C on an E-450 chassis no tow.. So let's "estimate" per day costs. Some days will be more some less. No breakdowns. $80 for gas. We do 175 to 225 miles per day 8 mpg. $45 per day for a campsite. $25 per day for food. Looks like $150 per day. If we are taking a few days off..... $45 for a campsite and 25 for food. Our food not restaurant bought...... This is the number I'm using right now, but gas is going through the roof, so is food. So who knows. When I get back in September I'll post the real numbers. Should be interesting.

Idaho/Montana Route 200

I'm thinking of taking a ride on Idaho Rt 200 from Sandpoint Idaho to Sun River Montana after working my way North on Idaho Rt 95. We should be in that area toward the end of August. It looks interesting. Just starting to piece my way back toward Seekonk Ma.from that general area. We'll be running our 26ft Class C. Interesting sights, cool campgrounds and side trips suggestions are appreciated.

RE: Memphis I-40 Bridge Closed

We're heading that way in mid June. Want to pick up US 412 at Columbia Tn then head west. We'll be traveling in our Jayco 26xd, 32 ft OAL with the bikes hanging off th rear. I checked out this Doreen-Hickman ferry that crosses the River at Hickman Ky. Looks like it will handle our RV ok. Might be an adventure to make our way there then on to US 412 after we cross??..Fortunately we aren't pressed for time. We'll see what things are like when we are approaching that area.

RE: Gasoline/Diesel Shortages

OP here. Yes a short lived post would be nice. DW and I are planning to leave home for 4 months and head west on June 20. I plan to make my way to I84 then I81, I40 I65 to Columbia TN then US route 412 west to Springer NM. Unfortunately this route looks like it might not work form the reports I'm seeing. So I sat down today and started checking out alternate routes that will hopefully avoid any hard hit areas. My thinking is to get to I80/I70 west and so on. This is what so great about this forum. If this thing happens to drag on (sound familiar) hopefully enough folks will chime in and we can get an idea what areas are favorable for travel. One way or another this is going to be an interesting trip!!!

Gasoline/Diesel Shortages

I thought it might be a help to our friends on the road to post locations where we have seen long gas lines or fuel stops shut down. Also advise on places near the effected areas that we know have fuel. I know this is a "fluid" situation and things can change quickly, but it might help to keep some fellow RV'ers from getting caught short. Right now in my area, near Providence RI, I haven't seen any shutdowns.

RE: Lights on a bicycle carrier

Thanks Guys. Picked up a couple of LED trailer lights and spent a couple of hours in my shop and made up a mount out of angle iron. Wired the lights up, painted and all's well. Thanks again.

Lights on a bicycle carrier

I bought a Swagman Dispatch to carry our 2 bicycles on our Jayco 26xd class C. I set it up today with the bikes on it for the first time. Checking the set up out it seemed that the stop/directional lights are block out a little. Not much but when standing on either side the opposite light is not really visible. So have any of you folks that carry bicycles installed a set of lights on the outside ends of the bike rack?

Slide Seal Conditioner that doesn't "stink"

Well I never had an RV with slide outs. Now I do. I mentioned to my lovely wife that I need to treat the slide seals. The response I received was along the line of "oh, well don't put something on that stinks"..... Now I have a small hobby machine shop and DW stays out of it because it stinks. So this is a clue. I have been looking at 3 (so far) slide seal conditioners. 3 in 1, Thetford, and 303. Now the Thetford had one review that said it "stinks" however I saw a can at the RV dealer and sprayed a little of the foam on the counter and took no exception. I know I can ask but then I would possibly end up with 3 or 4 perfectly fine conditioners that didn't pass the smell test. So if someone has been through this please let me know what you use. I'm only need a starting point. I was very hesitant about posting this but hey the only stupid question is the one that isn't asked.??

RE: Freezer door Gasket Post

Thanks 2112 this looks like it. I'll give it a try later today after I finish making up the lower refrigerator door hinge.

Freezer door Gasket Post

I have searched but I can't seem to find a post that mentioned putting cotton balls on the corners of the door gasket. I can't remember the rest of the process but I'd like to try it if I can get the rest of the instructions. The dealer has "adjusted" the freezer door 3 times and the thing is still leaking. Not that badly but will require defrosting every couple of weeks. I've done the "dollar bill" test and it seems ok. The thing is leaking about 6 inches in from the top hinge side. Seems to be about 3" that aren't sealing. As always thanks for your help.

RE: First time RVing. What should we consider? Insurance?

Great suggestions given. When you pick up your RV, stand away from the side and look at the distance from the back wheels to the end of the RV. When you take a corner or leave a tight area that tail swings way out and even though the rear wheels and most of the back of the RV has cleared the obstruction that last 3 or so feet is still swinging out.. example: you pull up to the gas pump. It's a bit tight so you are close to the pump which is on the drivers side. When you finish and are ready to leave you decide you want to turn to the right. If you turn to soon the tail will hit the pump or one of the guards as it swings out. Be sure you have enough room for that back end to clear before turning..saves a lot of trouble..
