RE: HarvestHost......anyone using it?

We're lifetime members of HH and when the weather is nice we stay at HH places along our route. Wineries are our preferred stopover and we've found some that we really like. We recently stayed at the Tallahassee Auto Museum twice. Did the tour the first stop and just spent the night when passing through again. That being said we've never felt pressured to buy anything. On the contrary most hosts are very appreciative if we buy anything from them. We've been to some HH's that the hosts were happy to see us and others where we didn't even see the hosts. Such a variety.

RE: Banff, Lake Louise and Jasper, Alberta

Near Lake Louise try to also see Moraine Lake, somewhat smaller lake with less development and less crowds.

RE: Light Japanese Trucks used as Tow Vehicles here

Years ago I rented a UHaul truck for a 100 mile move. Great, an Isuzu diesel, should get great mileage. By the end of the trip my back and right leg were killing me. Had to keep the darn thing floored to make 60 mph!

RE: Couple of Routes in Colorado

FYI Hwy 50 about halfway between Montrose and Gunnison will have major construction for 2-3 years beginning this April. It will be closed except for the following times: 2 hours in morning, 1 hour at noon, 1 hour in the afternoon. Then will be open each weekend. It will be best to avoid that area except maybe for the weekends.

RE: New Television

The problem I've found with smart tvs is the apps are not as frequently updated as a firestick or roku. I have 3 Samsung smart tvs and are using roku's on each of them. My son has a Roku TV and is happy with it.

RE: Need an Education

My 1999 Foretravel doesn't have slides but does use the airbag suspension for leveling. So when arriving I'll have to idle until I'm level. If I had slides like in my previous coach I'd have to leave it running to extend my slides while at ride height. Then level. After that I could turn off the engine. Same sequence when departing. Start engine, let air up to ride height (if slides then pull them in), then pull out. This does take a few minutes each time and is necessary. As far as letting the engine and turbo, aftercooler, etc. cool down this is usually done just idling driving to my site. Not all motorhomes need the same sequence.

RE: SiO2 Batteries

My 3 Battleborn LiFePO4's are very happy being charged by my Freedom inverter/charger built in 1999. I do have the advanced monitor panel so can tweak the settings a bit. You can also trick your charger by selecting a different battery type and temperature setting. So you may not need a lithium charger, just study your manual.

RE: ANWR Drilling Stopped

Hope you can afford the price of gas or diesel getting there.

RE: Let's beat this horse once again

What size? How many slides? Or no slides? You could step up your game by going with an older but higher quality unit such as a Foretravel or even a Newell in that price range. But whatever you decide on get an inspection by someone very familiar with the brand you're considering.

RE: Dometic refrigerator frost and ice

If you're in Florida it is just the humidity getting in everytime you open the fridge door. You can search here and put in a small computer muffin fan to circulate the air in the fridge. Very common problem.

RE: Everyone Check your Female 7 pin connector.....

Depending on the condition of the blades and contact (female) portions you can clean them with a bit of emery cloth and spring them back tighter then use a bit of di-electric grease. That could make them as good as new, of course that depends on the wiring having been done correctly when installed.

RE: disappointing info for Jeep Trailhawk flat tow

Typically in the past if a Jeep or other brand has a neutral position in the transfer case it could be towed. Has that changed recently?

RE: Any "Real" Unlimited Plans?

Geez, just stay home. There's so much to see and do as you travel you should find you only watch an hour or so tv and internet each day.

RE: RV lighting

You might try going down to a warmer led light, something more towards a yellow.

RE: Lithium heating pads

Someone I know used motorcycle or snowmobile grip heating pads.

RE: Exercise genny while on shore power?

Not all transfer switches are set up the same way. Some give priority to the generator, others give priority to shore power. You need to know which way yours is set up. Mine is shore power priority but my Newell had generator priority. Yes always turn off all high loads such as air conditioner or heater before switching or plugging/unplugging. This will protect your transfer switch from arcing and damaging the contacts.

RE: What about driving a diesel pusher?

Like Tom/Barb said since you're sitting on top of your steer tires.

RE: Hwy 50

There is an incentive for having the west end of the project open by the end of July 2021. This would allow us access to Montrose. Other than that not sure if there are any other incentives. It will be an inconvenience to us as residents but the hwy is supposed to be open each weekend with both lanes of traffic. We are retired and can schedule our trips to town for the weekends but the business owners, doctors and nurses who work both in Montrose and Gunnison, and ranchers will be greatly affected by this. But CDOT and the state officials are all aware of this. Best to avoid this area except for the weekends.

RE: Hwy 50

We have an RV lot where we spend the summers that is on the Alpine Plateau Rd 867 off of Hwy 50 and our access will be affected by this. We attended a meeting this summer in Montrose and of the 100 people that were allowed in the meeting over half were residents of our subdivision and the others were farmers, ranchers, doctors, nurses, and business owners who will be affected by these closures. CDOT representatives were not concerned with OUR concerns. Hwy 50 is the recommended route when I-70 is closed but CDOT said they will fully open Hwy 50 if I-70 is closed. Just an FYI for anyone traveling this area.

RE: Lifting or Leveling a Class B van

What about adding air leveling shocks like Firestone? You could air these up for added clearance when needed and air down when not needed. This shouldn't give you a harsher ride when at normal height.
