RE: Road Condition West Bound into Cody, WY on US Hwy 14

The advise above is all very good. I have traveled all 3 routes and 16 would be your best bet. Watch the weather and the road conditions very close!

RE: Where are all of the snowbirds?

A lot of interesting comments! We would love to be snowbirds but unfortunately, my wife's health is preventing us from what used to be our annual trip to the Texas coast. We sure enjoyed it when we could. We only used our motor home once for a few days locally last year. I hope all the snowbirds have a safe and happy winter where ever they are!

Where are all of the snowbirds?

Just wondering why there is no action on this forum thread anymore? There used to be quite a few posts on here. I know there are still snowbirds out there.

RE: Broke down on the road, what's your insurance experience?

We have Good Sam ERS. Motor home broke down at the Badlands, S.D. They towed us 75 miles to Rapid City to a big RV dealer (no charge). They checked it out and replaced a fuse, test drove it charged us $100 and sent us on our way. Two days later in Montana the same thing happened. I called and they said they would send a tow but we would have to pay as it was a pre-existing condition. I complained because they had towed us to a place that did not fix the problem and they said I could appeal but I would have to pay at the time. I appealed when we got home and they paid 100% in full. I am very satisfied! The second time was a Sunday evening and they towed us to a campground and then towed us to a Chevy dealer the next morning.

RE: Plugged in or out

I don't leave it plugged in but do use battery maintainers on it, 1 for coach and 1 for engine battery.

RE: Winnebago quality

I have had 3 older Winnebago products, in my opinion their roofs are excellent quality, never had a roof leak. I can't say that about other brands I have had.

RE: Flat tow toad brake and tow bar recommendations

I really like my Ready Brake, it is simple and dependable. It is a surge brake and uses the towed vehicles brake system. You can google it and read about it.

RE: Leveling Jack Creaking/Popping

OK on what the fork oil is, thanks.

RE: Leveling Jack Creaking/Popping

What kind of jacks do you have? I have had good luck with silicone spray on my HWH jacks. I have never heard of fork oil, what is that?

RE: Remembering my best physical condition

I am pretty lucky. I worked fairly hard all of my life and retired at 70, now I am 77. I am not as agile or strong as I once was but still able to do about what I want to. Last weekend, I cleaned all the eves troughs on our house, got up on the gable of the house and did a little work on the TV antenna, and then put up my outside Xmas lights. I was pretty tired and sore when I was done but I was able to do it and was fine the next morning. I feel very fortunate to be this way at my age, unfortunately my wife is not so lucky but I still have her after 59 years! :)

RE: Is travelling through the states safe re: Covid?

I would bring my vaccination cards with me and get a booster shot if you can. Stay away from crowds and wear a mask if in doubt. I can't help as far as crossing the border I would check with the authorities about that. They say cases are on the rise in the states but with vaccination and precautions, I would not be afraid to travel. Good luck and best wishes!

RE: Winter battery maintenance

I agree with Fisherman, my batteries are 10 years old and still going. I credit the battery maintainers with the long life. I have antique cars and also keep maintainers on them and have very good luck with long life batteries in them too!

RE: What's a reasonable towed vehicle?

I have a 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Ltd. Have owned it since almost new. Just put the transmission in park, the transfer case in neutral, and the ignition key in the tow position. That is all there is to it. The Jeep now has 130K miles on it and has been the most trouble free vehicle I have ever owned. I keep it just to tow behind the MH, have a Lincoln MKC for the good car and the Jeep has very little value. If you can find a good used older Jeep they are not worth a lot and are a great towed.

RE: Hydraulic stabilizers down during storage

I think mice are far more likely to climb up the tires and wheels to the axles than to try to climb up a slippery stainless steel shaft.

RE: Winter battery maintenance

I keep all of my batteries that are not used much on battery maintainers, it seems like they last a lot longer if kept fully charged at all times! I do not take them out in the winter.

RE: Gas prices

It didn't stop us the last time gas was $4 or more per gallon and it wouldn't stop us now, but, health has. That is much worse than a few bucks more for gas!!!

RE: Rv specific soap and waxes

Yes, definitely use car wash soap not dish soap. Dish soap will take what ever wax you have off while most car was soaps are designed not to do that. I never use dish soap on my vehicles.

RE: Winterizing Issue

That sounds backwards to me.I am pretty sure that on mine I have to have the valve on city water. If I put it on fresh water tank it fills the tank instead of going to all of the water lines.
