RE: Portable gas detector

Most LP detectors will not shut the LP system off. They will only warn you of its presence.

RE: Ceiling AC Grilles - Need Covers

Are you looking for something to replace the grill portion of the register or something to block it? If it is to block it; you DON'T want to do that. The A/C needs a certain airflow thru the system to work properly.

RE: Route from Phoenix to Florida

I-10 is the most direct and San Antonio and Houston are not a problem if you avoid rush hour. It does have a number of construction areas between Beaumont TX and Lake Charles LA and west of Lafayette La that can get backed up. Also east bound at Baton Rouge is best done on the weekend because of the single lane area at the Mississippi river bridge. I-20 is still extremely rough in the Shreveport - Bossier city area.

RE: TX-146 to Avoid Houston

My preference is similar to Doug,s; however, I leave I-10 at Orange and take TX82 and TX73 to Winnie to avoid the construction mess between Orange and Beaumont. Also be aware there is construction east of Lafayette and west of Lake Charles.

RE: Cost of RVing

If we are looking at the cost of RV travel; we need to also compare cost of of hotels and 3 restaurant meals a day in the same places. That area that has $50 RV sites probably also has $150 motel rooms.

RE: Quick connect LP fitting won't work with standard gas grill?

He is correct. Some grills can be converted with a kit that replaces the control assembly. Check with your grills manufacturer.

RE: Sliding glass door replacement.

Try a glass installer. Most glass dealers can do custom work.

RE: effects of / protection from undervoltage

Low voltage will most affect devices with a motor (ie Air conditioner and such). High voltage and voltage spikes (surge) will have the greatest affect on electronics. The only true protection from both is an energy management system which continuously monitors the incoming power.

RE: Battery price question...

Beyond cost,space is also a consideration. 2 GC2s take up less space than 2 Group 31s which would be required to get the same capacity.

RE: Air Flow Deflectors

Some real world experience here. Short bed pickup with deflector on headache rack and TT with vertical front like Dodge Guy - gain of 1 MPG. With the same truck and deflector towing a TT with more angled and rounded front the gain is minimal. Even 1 MPG may not be enough to offset the cost of a deflector if there is not enough mileage driven.

RE: Best TT in the western parks?

Others have addressed your size issues well. For visiting National Parks and the like; equip your rig for dry camping and you will have more options open to you. Most have limited or no sites with hook ups.

RE: Two Easy Questions (hopefully!)

State regulations on rest area stops vary. Most have no problem with a few hours for a quick shut eye. Some allow overnight.

RE: Pantry rack wire baskets? Circa 1995 for Class C: See pic

I would measure the basket and find something of the same size at a home supply or hardware store.

RE: TT camping in Biloxi

Cajun RV Park is nice and where I stay when in the area. Across Beach Blvd. from the beach.

RE: LA-12/US-190

Have not been on LA12 but US190 is generally good. Not sure where you are heading, but the I10 construction between the state line and Beaumont is worse then the Sulphur area.

RE: Water Filter Cartridge Replacement

Visit your nearest big box home supply (Lowes, Home Depot, etc) or hardware and pick a cartridge of the same size for the type of filtering you are most interested in doing.

RE: Getting Started - Longer Distance Camping

On the stocking of supplies and clothing. Stock food and clothing as you would for that period of time if you were at home. Since you are going to Colorado be sure to include some cool weather clothes, even in summer. Plan to use one day per week for grocery shopping, laundry and housekeeping.

RE: Follow-up to my frozen refrigerator....

Back in the day when absorption refrigerators were common in homes, that was a standard fix when they got out of kilter.

RE: Puma trailers. Any good?

I have a 2018 25RLS and quality is on par with others. If buying new expect, to have a variety of problems crop up regardless of make or model.

RE: Hwy TX 6

Unless you are actually wanting to go Galveston and Arizona is your destination or origin I would avoid Houston with a more northerly route like US290 and TX 105. Personally I do not consider Houston a problem using I10 straight thru on weekends.
