RE: 2013 Winnebago vista 35b flat towing jeep rubicon

assuming you paid attention to your weights and weigh ratings you likely won't even know or feel the jeep back there. remember...while you're towing there's not a parking lot you can't get into. but there are many, many you can't get out of without unhooking the jeep. always....always have an excape route. the jeep should turn insde the track of the MH. take it EZ but you'll be fine.

RE: how long can one store a gas engined motorhome?

we once stored ours for 3-years. MPG sucked more than usual when we went out again but otherwise no ill effects. i did occasionally exercise it during those years. pay particular attention to the tires.

RE: Email Issues - Just looking for ideas..

we use 7 or 8 g-mail addresses. as of may 30th G-Mail is implimenting additional security features which may render T-Bird useless. i use an older version of Outlook (OL2010) which will not be useable. newer versions of OL will work but i’m not interested in upgrading. i’ve been wanting to get our own domain and e-mail for a while now. this g-mail change was the incentive needed to do that.

RE: ez pass/toll pass placement on class A

I did look for topics on this but no go. Where do I put my ezpass on a class A. The bottom of front window is fairly high up...good enough? i put ours in the overhead compartment above the driver's chair.

RE: hundreds of CD's many in original packaging, mostly country

Look for a used music or record store in the next town you visit. They might give you a little bit for each, or make you a package deal -and turn around and sell them for a couple bucks each. i tried that a few months back with our old LP's and CD's. I had hundreds of them. one place in town wanted to SEE them to judge condition. best case, unless I had something special, was $0.25-$0.50 each. it was not worth the effort to pack them up and schlep them to that store. So I gave most away on and the few that were not taken went to Goodwill.

RE: Practicality of non-propane Camper

we we travel we tend to purposely avoid temps below freezing but when we do our rooftop heat pumps, the small electric space heaters and our heated mattress pad keep us nice and warm. but we consistently find ourselves in daytime temps that require air cond. maybe technology will, someday, enable an RV to not need electrical hookups in favor on an onboard power source (fuel cells, dilithium crystals, etc) but it's not gonna happen before we give up our keys. so until then we will, unashamedly, hook up to power, run the genny and burn propane as needed.

RE: Practicality of non-propane Camper

i wouldn't have one. i'm a plan B kind of guy. we keep the fresh water tank full even when hooked up to water. and we don't let the LP tank get much lower than half a tank even though we use electric heat when we have hook-ups. nope, not interested in an all-eelctric RV or a "solar generator".

RE: Florida experts - driving to Topsail

We'll be driving to Topsail SP in a couple weeks from the west. Pulling a 36ft 5th wheel with a dually. Google Maps says to exit I-10 on hwy 85 toward Niceville, then 293 down to 98 and left over to Topsail. Seems like that sends us through a (usually?) congested area. Would it be better to stay on 10 to hwy 331, down to 98, then right to Topsail? Or is that just as congested? Thanks for any suggestions!! Mark it's been a few years but we stay at Live Oak Landing RV just south of Freeport, FL. to get there we take I-10 then south on 331. As I recall 331 is 4-lane from I-10 all the way to 98. We drove thru Topsail a few times on our last trip and I don't recall 331 being terribly congested but 98 was a character builder. We've never been the other way so can't give you a comparison.

RE: Interesting EV’s versus ICE article…

i doubt we'll ever buy an EV. certainly not until they get the range of our gassers and more importantly re-recharge time on the road is comparable to stopping for gas. as i see it the biggest impediment to EVs is lack of infrastructure, ie charging stations.

RE: Battery tender & storage

I have to store my rv in AZ for 4 months. I won’t be able to check on it, cause I live in AK. I’m wondering about leaving a Battery Tender attached for that long. I have covered storage. I have a battery cutoff in a new Arctic Fox tt. After checking water level- Should I … leave cables/wires attached to battery as they are; turn the cutoff switch ( disconnecting it from the rV) and then attach the Battery Tender? Everything I read say check water level monthly, but I can’t do that. Advise pls. Thnx in advance. we usually snowbird between early January and mid-to-late May. while we're gone I leave battery tender devices on both of our other vehicles here at home. never have had a problem.

RE: Jan-Feb-March in Mesa, AZ- few questions about heat sources

we snowbird in Mesa and rarely run the lp furnace. we will usually run the front rooftop heat pump and augment that with a portable electric space heater in the bedroom. we don't run the rooftop heat pump in the bedroom because of the noise. if need be we also have a heated mattress pad.

RE: Flying J / RV Lanes

You mentioned in your post that you will be visiting Rocky Mountain National Park. Just a heads up, there are no Flying J stations in the northern Colorado area that I'm aware of. Closest will be a Flying J and a Pilot in Cheyenne, WY near the I-25/I-80 interchange, or in the Denver/Aurora area off I-70. .. the Pilot in Cheyenne has two long-vehicle fuel lanes off to the right of the auto pumps. EZ out as well. we fueled up there last august in our 40' class a + suv toad.

RE: Flying J / RV Lanes

You are aware that Flying j fuel prices are higher than other stations! Even if they are higher, if they have an easy in/out where you don’t clog up the parking lot, it’s worth an extra few bucks. +1. i'll prioritize convenience and EZ in/out over price everytime.
