Euerka Springs AR to Branson MO

Is AR-62/AR-21/MO-86/US-65 a good route to tow a 30 footer from Euerka Spring to Branson or should I pick another way

RE: Disconnect load before stopping generator?

We had a saying at the phone Co. graceful and ungraceful. Disconnect the power before pulling a card or just pull out a card under power. I built a box with 30A twist lock and 50A socket with a switch and V/A meter so I can disconnect the load before turning on or off the gen.

RE: I-44 North of Wichita Falls TX

Google maps should tell you... I used to take I44 or US281 several years ago from Wichita falls TX up to Medicine park OKLA just beyond Lawton OK to camp in Wichita Mtns Wildlife Refuge... I don't recall any fees on I44 up to that point... I bet the fees start at the HE BAILEY Turnpike TOLL STATION up past Lawton at Chicksha/Amber OKLA... You should be OK staying on I44 to get on US70 with no fees I would think... We used to get off I44 just after you get inside OKLA and head up US281 which runs parallel to I44 to the East so we could go thru places like Geronimo and some other Indian named places... I also just read this off of GOGGLE SEARCH if you can make heads or tails out it... "The H. E. Bailey Turnpike takes a generally south to north route from Wichita Falls to Lawton before turning northeast toward Oklahoma City. The turnpike's 25 miles (40 km) southern section begins at US 70, 6 miles (9.7 km) north of the Texas state line. US 277 and US 281 leave I-44 at US 70, and together run parallel to the Turnpike. The turnpike runs north-northeast for 15 miles, intersecting SH 5 along with US 277 and US 281. A toll plaza is located underneath the SH 5 overpass; loop ramps feed all entering and exiting traffic into the toll plaza. Just north of SH 5, a Service Area is located in the median of the turnpike, featuring food, fuel, and restroom amenities, as well as an Oklahoma Welcome Center. The turnpike then continues north for ten more miles until it again reaches US 277 and US 281, also intersecting SH 36. The turnpike temporarily ends at this interchange, and the two US Routes join a free ODOT-maintained I-44 through Lawton. " Roy Ken I looked at google and couldnt really tell for sure where the tolls started. I want to go from Breckenridge, TX to Choctaw OK without using a toll road, Im sure there are several ways to get to I-35 but was thinking of going to Wichita Falls and taking US-70 North of Wichita Falls to I-35 Im sure the info will just confuse the hell out my GPS:)

RE: Seattle RV Park Recs

Seattle is not RV friendly. If you are touring the south side of Seattle, then the KOA in Kent (this coming from a guy who dislikes KOA) is the best choice. If playing on the north side, then Lake Pleasant (nice park) is the place. I stayed at that park two years ago and it is the worst KOA I have ever stayed and I stay in a lot of KOA's. The sites are very narrow and not long or wide enough for you to park your TV. The price was $60 or so. I stayed there mostly because it was near a friend who lives in Kent. I will never stay there again. Wal-Mart is a better choice.

RE: St Louis to Branson

I think that 19% grade mentioned in relation to Branson is a short stretch of hwy 376 on the west side of Branson connecting the strip area to highway 265. video Oh yeah I forgot about that one all of a 1/4 mile long. I saw the sign and said whhhhhhhhhhhat

RE: Diesel Fill up

I cringe thinking back to the days before an aux tank in my bed. I haven't been to the pumps with my trailer in several years. Its been over 10 years since I have been to the pumps with my trailer attached

RE: Indy 500 Camping

I dont know about the indy 500 but here is camping info for the brick yard 400 NASCAR Im guessing they have the same camping for the 500. We stayed in Lot 4 it is near a gate at turn 4 which we had tickets for and it was just a short walk to our seats. Some of the lots are for adult only as adult only activities go on there. Lot 4 is a quite sort of lot.

RE: Legal or safety issues carrying diesel fuel containers in RV

I would make sure to carry them in a well vented compartment. While not as bad as gas, the diesel fumes could build up and be explosive. Are you kidding me. About the only way to diesel fuel to explode is mix it with fetilizer and set it off with a stick of dianomite

RE: Overpass Minimum Height

Since we just added a 2nd AC to the front of our new 5th wheel, we are wondering if we could be too high overall when travelling under highway overpasses. Anyone know the minimum clearance height for most highways & interstates? We look to be close to 13' or so when hooked up. Any feedback will be appreciated. Thanks! You need to measure it. We look close to 13' the over pass looks close to 13'4" well guess what you are 13'2" and the over pass turns out to be 12'11". There goes the top 3" of your AC

RE: RV Roof

I have RV Flex Armor that was installed 3-4 years ago. This is the spray on one, not the mopped on. I absolutely love it and would do it to a brand new unit. What was the cost per foot and did you do the slide outs

RE: Brands that are well built for winter??

Look at the R value they claim and compare it with other brands. I have a Grand Designs and their advertized R rating is almost double as compared to Jayco.. You have to run your heater to keep the under belly from freezing. You wake up in the morning and your cold water is almost as warm as the hot water

RE: RV Parks charging for water use?

So just how much water does someone in a RV use anyway. WOW $125 pre 1000 that is a big rip off and $20-$30 month is really high. My water bill in my stick house is around $15 and that includes the landscaping. We have a dishwasher, washing machine that a most RVers done have. We had to pay .25 for 3 min of hot water in the showers, you could get all of the cold water you wanted in state parks we used to stay at in CA. We would take 2 quarters with us and after a couple of days you got really good at getting a showing in in 3 min. A 10 min shower I dont even do that in my stick house
