RE: Roswell NM

Tatum, NM and Denver City, TX have city parks that are free with hookups. Bit of a drive but if nothing else is closer could work for you.

RE: Would You Camp at a Place Like This??

I would but not at that price. I might pay $20/night or so if there is lots of separation between the other campers.

RE: Towing a vintage car?

Haven't bought yet, not looking for a show car. Probably buy a nice driver condition so dings, etc. won't be a problem for me. I do use a Readybrake now for my truck and Tahoe. Great towbar.

Towing a vintage car?

Is anyone towing or has towed a vintage car behind their motorhome? Thinking of buying an early 60's Chrysler and wondering if it can be towed. This would probably be a 3 speed automatic. Another option would be a 60's Plymouth with a manual 3 or 4 speed transmission. Also I would imagine I'd have to have a baseplate welded to the frame. Anybody done this?

RE: Where are you guys/gals getting your battery cables?

Or look at ebay or amazon. Just be aware there is lots of wire out there that is copper clad aluminum!

RE: Time to reorder some LED bulbs

Count me as one who buys cheap leds. Over the past 8 years I've only had to replace 1 bad bulb that was bad when I plugged it in. Most of these were bought on ebay but from a USA supplier. Much easier to return or get a replacement with someone in the USA.

RE: Is dash cam evidence allowed in an investigation

Had someone hit my truck while they were being directed into their spot this summer. After sending the video from my dash cam on the motorhome (truck was parked in front) there was no question who was at fault. The other insurance accepted the video and paid within a week. So having a video might keep you from having to go through the courts.

RE: Red Pocket Mobile

Switched 4 phones from ATT to Red Pocket about a month ago. No difference between the 2 regarding service. The monthly cost on the family plan is about half. Coming up on the first renewal next week. No contract, cancel anytime. Have 2 androids and 2 iphones on our family plan. So far it's working fine and saving money. Took about an hour to port each phone number over to RP. And surprisingly ATT never contacted me to remain with them despite being a loyal customer for well over 20 years! One tip, you have to email support to get the hot spot feature turned on for your android phone. But as of now hot spot doesn't work for iphones.

RE: need help

Another option is at San Antonio to take Hwy 90 to Van Horn. More scenic and you'll pass through Langtry. Stop at Judge Roy Bean's. And it's less than 20 miles longer.

RE: Where to camp and scuba ?

Try posting on There are many lakes, springs, etc. throughout our country that has scuba opportunities and the guys on scubaboard should know about campgrounds, or at least narrow down areas to contact.

RE: Easy Peasy OTR Meals

And throw the leftover chicken + a few veggies into a ramen soup. Great way to use up leftovers.

RE: Having a SENIOR moment

My speed driving my motorhome is 62-64mph. I'm about 60' long and don't have the power or brakes or maneuverability to change speed as quickly as a car. If I move over to the left lane to let someone in then by the time they get in and ahead of me there is usually a line of cars behind me getting PO'd because I'm in the left lane driving much slower than they are. Many times they whip around the right side of me and I'm blocked from getting back in the right lane. So it is much safer for me to remain in the right lane. The person merging can easily adjust their speed to merge either before or after me. So no I won't usually move over for someone to merge unless there is no one coming up behind me. It's all about safety.

RE: Sour Dough Biscuits

Please post your recipe and results. While in Alaska this summer we were gifted some starter over 100 years old! Tried pancakes and bread but not biscuits yet.

RE: Really scary incident tonight - almost lost my tow!

Replace the hitch pin with a correct size grade 8 bolt and don't worry about it. No rattles either. Also anyone who wants to steal your towbar better have tools!

RE: US Border agent gave my passport to.....??

Wow! Never thought of that but one thing I always do is check my credit card when the waiter hands it back to me.

RE: Why not forget holding tanks and just use portable tanks?

Only issue I can see is when stopping for the night somewhere without hookups you would need to deploy the portable tanks then load them up again. Maybe have a small "day" tank that can handle a couple days, then when parked for longer, use the portable tanks. Maybe combine the 2 different waste sources into 1 valve? Another option is to use a porta-potty toilet.

RE: To DP or not DP

Couple comments, 138k miles is certainly NOT "long in the tooth" for an engine that OTR truckers regularly get a million miles on. That's just over 7000 miles/year, about average. Another thing would be to look at older units to see how they have held up. Most RV's are built to a price point, IOW as cheaply as they can sell them. Newells, as a few others, are built differently. Newells are all custom built to the owners specs. Most of them weren't looking for a bargain apparently. I've previously owned a '93 and '98 Newell and found them to be very solidly built coaches, certainly in the very top of quality. I currently own a 36' 1999 Foretravel mainly because Newell builds mostly 45' coaches and we wanted smaller for our Alaska trip. Newell is still privately owned and has great factory support. A great forum to get info and answers is And remember like all others maintenance and records are very important. Good luck in your search.

RE: RV-Dump parking sloping the wrong way

You shouldn't drain your black tank completely dry unless you are SURE there are no solids left. If there are it could dry into a mess that may not break up later. Better to leave some water in the bottom. If you do drain it completely then run a couple gallons through the toilet so stuff doesn't dry out.

RE: dded a new toy to the RV fun equation...

Nice! I have a 2013 570 that fits into the bed of my extended cab Silverado and then towed behind my motorhome. Have been on some great rides all over. Since you're in Arizona get it licensed for the streets. IIRC all you need are a horn, turn signals, and rearview mirror. Enjoy!

RE: Allergo rear camera

Why B&W? A color camera should work with a B&W monitor. But for the price and trouble replacing it I'd just buy a new color camera+monitor. The difference will be remarkable. has a nice selection.
