RE: health insurance

Really? If you don't get SS benefits does that exclude you from Medicare? jesseannie

RE: Sewer drain is lower than the dump drain.

I had this situation at a state Park in Oregon this summer. The sewer drain was 12" above the ground. When I drained the tanks most of the effluent ran into the sewer inlet, but the drain hose on the ground still was full. I made sure the hose was well connected on both ends and lifted the hose from the trailer end up and drained it into the sewer pipe. I had to do it several times to completly drain the tank. When I was done I unhooked from the trailer and carefully washed it out. Only a few of the sites had this elevated drain?? jesseannie

RE: trailer size and campsites in National Parks

21 feet seems to be the max in Oregon for the most part. Bigger is not always better. So many variables here. Really? I have camped in Oregon a lot and my 26' (30' overall) travel trailer fits in most national forest campgrounds and in all state parks. I have never had a problem. Jesseannie

RE: Dog Attack

Have you ever heard an aggressive dog owner after an attack say "oh I knew Cujo would do that he has always been kind of snotty"? NO they say I don't understand tinker bell has never been aggressive he sleeps with my babies every night. There are certain breeds that when they do attack they are relentless and injuries or death result Don't tell how many times you have been bitten by a Chihuahua, nobody has ever been killed by a 5# dog. Jesseannie As an afterthought have you noticed how many of these Bully breeds attack their own family members or friends? I will never trust them.

RE: Replacing toilet... flange question

Don't do what I did! I put in new flooring had my new gasket sitting on the sink cabinet, and got the toilet reinstalled. Beautful job! I got up off my knees and noticed the new gasket still sitting on the counter. AARRGG! It went in easier the second time. Jesseannie

Oregon Coast trip

We just returned from a ten days trip to the Oregon Coast. We spent a few days at Federal campground Tillicum Beach and then moved to Carl Washburn a state campground. Both had great access to the beach. We had beautful sunny weather except for one day of rain. Had a great time beachcombing and tide pooling. It was hard to come home. Jesseannie

RE: RV Parks near Crater Lake National Park

We stayed at Farewell Bend right near the entrance road to the park. It was a great spot. Lots of other hiking opportunities nearby, too We were in a 26 ft TT. Jesseannie

RE: Redwood park site lengths

don't want to be a naysayer but just in case thought I should mention, parking a 30 foot Class C is going to be different than parking a 26 foot travel trailer if the site isn't wide enough to park the tow vehicle beside the trailer. I don't have any personal knowledge about the campgrounds in question so maybe the site is wide enough. The rec.gov says units 30 foot but trailers only 24 feet I think part of the problem, is the narrow access roads make it difficult to maneuver into a site with a trailer. Jesseannie

Redwood park site lengths

We would like to plan a fall trip to the Redwoods. The Rec.gov reservation site says all of the 4 campgrounds are limited to 24' trailer length. We have a 26' but some other information we have read on camping sites says 27 or Panther Flats up to 30'. I would hate to get there and be turned away because I had bad info. Can someone give me the real deal. No fake news! Jesseannie

RE: 04 Chev 1500 as a tow vehicle 8000lb camper

I think that if I had a set-up I was happy with and enjoyed using, I wouldn't post it here just to get 6 pages of telling me I was crazy. Jesseannie

Crater Lake

We spent the last 4 days at a wonderful National Forest campground just south of Crater Lake N.P. Farewell Bend campground was very nice, nice big level paved sites, friendly hosts. It was the cleanest, neatest camp we have stayed in. It was about a mile from the Crater Lake park road entrance. There was still snow at the lake and the road around the lake was not completely open, but there was plenty to see. It was beautiful, cool mornings and nice warm sunny days. We enjoyed a few other interesting sites around the area including a short steep hike to a cool water fall. Highly recommended. jesseannie

RE: Campgrounds along or near Hwy 12 in Idaho

I have stayed at Wilderness gateway several times. I am only 26 ft. There are a lot of open sites and there appear to be many that will take larger RVs. It is a beautiful spot and I always look forward to our time there fishing the Lochsa River.

RE: Vinyl plank flooring - snap lock with history of success?

I installed "luxury vinyl plank" in my older TT I lived in the northern tier at the time and it has gone through the hot and freezing weather. No problems at all. Easy to install and easy to maintain. I would recommend highly. All the manufactures say not to do it, but that is purely CYA stuff the corporate attorney writes. Jesseannie

RE: Ford cancels Mexico plant and expands US plant

The article is two years old. As relevant today, as was then! I don't think it is as relevant. Things change Ford is going through some big changes now thinking about eliminating car production. In this climate current factual news is very important. Jesseannie

RE: Ford Excursion 2wd

OP here I actually live in Southern Oregon now just haven't changed my location in my profile. I know about MPG I owned an EXCURSION in a previous life. My attitude now that I am mostly retired is that if I encounter snow on a trip I will head the other way or wait it out. Off pavement camping is my biggest concern. Jesseannie

Ford Excursion 2wd

I am looking at a Excursion that has the V-10 and 2 WD. I had an Excursion before and it was 4 WD. When I had that vehicle we lived in snow country and it made sense. But where I live now winter is just rainy weather. I tow a 6000 pound trailer and with my current pick-up I rarely use the 4 WD. This is a low milage SUV in really nice shape at a fair price, I am tempted but not sure about the 2 WD. What do you think? Jesseannie
