RE: Go 5 miles over in Indiana and foreit your vehicle

RE: Aluminum rotting on Lance 915

Several bubbles in the aluminum sides of the Sahara where it meets the stainless steel basement doors. Once you start picking at it, the paint needs to be dealt with. Not a great prospect on a 24 year old rig. The one area I did pick at I wire brushed and then hit it with a coat of paste wax. That seemed to stop the corrosion. If you camper is white the contrast wouldn't be noticeable. I just inspected a motor home that had a handicap access door installed. It was aluminum with steel parts attach. The entire bottom of the door was corroded.

RE: A complete guide

We've chosen to lead this totally irresponsible lifestyle at a ridiculously young age. Help us pay for it. I'm talking about you - Gone With The Wynns.

RE: Columbus Day Weekend, Cape Cod

Now considered the "shoulder season", mid-September thru the end of October is the best time on the Cape. The crowds are mostly gone, the water is still warm, most restaurants, t-shirt shops and mini-golf courses stay open until the end of October and the traffic has eased. Columbus Day weekend is however the traditional weekend to "close up the cottage", so the off Cape traffic Monday afternoon will be heavy.

RE: Antiglare Visors?

iplante4, what are you doing driving around looking at a screen or tablet? Waze and Copilot RV.

RE: Antiglare Visors?

Same junk marketing as the night vision glasses. Driving glasses of optical quality should help. The problem with polarized is that it may filter out the screen on the GPS or tablet.

RE: How about some common courtesy...

That’s why I always recommend carrying an iron when calling out a loud mouth. No, not a tire iron, or a golf club. A steam iron. The guy brought a steam iron to a knife fight!!! :)

Cross Country in a Tesla And you all thought finding a campground was tough.

RE: 301 southbound

US 301 is part of the old US route system. My grandfather used 301 and 41 to get to Florida for the winter. There was no I-95 (or I-anything for that matter). US301 miles of 55 mph interspersed with cities, towns and shopping malls. Cross the Potomac over the Gov. Nice bridge and hook up with I-95 at Fredricksburg VA. It's a relaxing ride, slower than I-95 but it avoids all of the worse areas.

RE: Detroit Diesel Series 60

We had a 2000-something Beaver Patriot Thunder in the shop last week that had an 8v71. You could tell from across the parking lot that it had a Detroit.

RE: Satelite Internet

Expensive, but what you asked for. Hughes Net I agree with Gus about Technomadia, but be aware they get paid for reviewing products.

RE: Traveling without a car

We did our first long trip (6 months, 6000 miles) without a toad. We didn't have a car you could tow 4 down anyway. We rented from Enterprise when we wanted a car. Getting parts for the RV got real expensive :) We found that we were picking campgrounds based on the proximity to an Enterprise office. Not the best criteria. They say "we'll pick you up" but there's a limit as to how far they'll go to do that. The next year I set up to tow a car. First thing I needed to do was find a good toad and buy a tow bar and brake. I lucked out on the tow bar, an older gent was selling his Blue Ox and RVi brake 2 for $900. A few hundred more to wire the Eqiunox and we were off. We found that we see a lot more stuff with a toad. We did our second long trip out towards Glacier and we would have been hard pressed finding a rental in N. Dakota.

RE: Electric Vehicles? Towing? Hauling?

Ok I'm all caught up now. Unless anyone has anything to add about th original topic (electric vehicles in case you all forgot), it's time to close this down.

RE: Trip Planning

The latest update has a good feature - the Research tab. Pick your stop and you can select a number of points of interest around the stop. Fuel, groceries, restaurants etc. Just for kicks select "Department Stores" and see how many dollar stores there are.
