RE: Traveling to the NW

All I can say is I agree that it is always "different strokes for different folks". As for me, I can't understand why folks head up to a part of the country they want to "see" and then stay on the freeways the whole time. To me, WA14 is by far a more pleasant road than the busier I-84 through the Gorge. I cannot think of a lot of paved state or federal highways that aren't traversable with an RV. Heck, they're all full of 53' semis.

RE: What temperature do you leave your home at

Mine's in a relatively dry area. Set it to 55, with a web connected Honeywell thermostat and a camera looking at the front door. Snowed there today. Too bad!

Another vote for Van Horn.

RE: Heated Mattress Pad

I think a heated mattress pad comes as close to ecstasy on Earth as you can get! We use one at home, and now while snowbirding in chilly Arizona I am using the one we had in the MoHo. Fantastic device. Put it under the regular mattress pad to eliminate those little lumps from the wires. The MoHo had a sleepnumber, which to me was just a glorified air mattress. Never a problem with the heater. (As long as you have some 110 power!)

RE: 4-Corners

The Four Corners "area" is our favorite area in the US to visit. That said, the actual "4-corners", like others stated, is not much. However, I don't consider it a ripoff. The Navajo people there are always courteous and friendly, and they are just trying to get a little income. Considering what we spend on an RV, I don;t think a $3 donation is an imposition.

RE: Anyone gone on a Cruise?

Heck we prefer the sea days. Balcony is great for that, as long as it is smooth. Our favorite itinerary is Trans-Atlantic! As one guy said, "there are porters and there are crossers -- T/A folks are crossers".

RE: Anyone gone on a Cruise?

OP has picked his cruise, and I'm sure they will enjoy it. One thing to consider in choosing a cruise line.If you look at the prices for the "Premium" lines (Viking, Seabourn, Oceania, Crystal, Azamara) and compare them to the "Mainline" lines (Princess, NCL, Royal, Celebrity, etc.) you might get sticker shock. However, many are much more inclusive. Crystal is our favorite, and has gone all-inclusive now. Wine, drinks, tips, all in. And the service is unquestionably more attentive. So the price difference is significantly less. We took Alaska in successive years, on Oceania then NCL. Same company, but night-and-day difference in service and food. From less to more pricey, our favorites: Princess>>Viking>>Crystal>>Seabourn.

RE: WA 20 or US 2 across the Cascades summer 2020?

Summer: 20 for sure. One of America's most scenic roads!

RE: Hwy 97 BC to California

Check the pass reports at WSDOT web site for Blewett Pass and Satus Pass conditions, on US97. It's clear today, but there's already been some nasty weather there.

32 year old tires? Please tell me you are kidding me!

RE: Honda cr-v electrical problem

My guess is that the charge wire is not right, maybe with an errant cross connection. If it is going dead while sitting not hooked up to the RV, there is obviously an errant draw. Something is not hooked up properly. Shouldn't be that hard to track it down. I'd be looking for an independent RV tech or towing installer, but not the one you mentioned.

RE: Comments on cancel your car Insurance

I have 2 identical cars -- one in the North and one in the South. When we switch location, the other car gets "suspended" at State Farm, for all but Comprehensive. It drops to about $20 for 6 months, and one call to the agent swaps out the coverages instantly.

RE: Utah National Parks: November? or April?

Well there you have it! -- Everyone has their favorite times in Utah. The obvious advice is just to go, enjoy yourselves, and keep an eye on the weather in those shoulder months!

RE: Utah National Parks: November? or April?

Weather is not predictable in those "shoulder" months. And, the temperatures can vary a whole lot between the high elevations like Bryce, and the lower ones like Monument Valley. Every time we've been there in November, it's been pretty cold up at Bryce, Capitol Reef, etc. So for me, I'd choose April over November. Shouldn't be too hot at places like Arches and Moab then.

RE: Easiest snowbird route from Seattle to Phoenix in January

It's all weather dependent, no matter which route you choose. If you prefer to avoid the Interstates as much as possible, take I82 and I84 to Twin Falls, then US93 through Nevada to Vegas, then Kingman and Phoenix. I've run it many times. Good road surfaces, biggest climb is Cabbage Hill at Pendleton. But Nevada is very remote, and don't run it if snow is forecast. Otherwise, Salt Lake, then Page, Flagstaff and Phoenix. Flag is the weather mess on that route.

RE: Flagstaff Az to Boise Id

Tossup. Decide which you prefer, Vegas traffic or Salt Lake traffic. I've run both routes many times. I think overall I prefer the 93 route, if only because less time spent on the interstates. It's likely an hour or so longer, but a lot less aggravating. If you pick 89, then yes, SR20 is the crossover connector of choice.

RE: Tucson to Olympia, WA

I like 65-68 in my Sprinter. Economic, and gets me there. But in Idaho and Utah I'm passed by the hundreds, many towing giant 5-ers at well over 80. Insane.

RE: Louder TV??

Learn something every day! I might try that Zvox gadget. Amazon'll let me try it for 30 days. I tried a Bose bar, but wasn't impressed -- Costco got it back within their 30 days too.

RE: Louder TV??

I have this issue at home. It appears that the TV production folks have gone to a different style of dialogue, supposedly more "natural" in volume. Watch an episode of "Elementary" for examples. We've given up. Gone to wireless headphones.

RE: Tucson to Olympia, WA

Watch the weather. Odds are against snow, but not by a lot.
