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

All our vinyl dating back to the 60's went to local hospital resale store. Still have 300+ CDs sana their cases in fllexible vinyl books. Everything is also logged on the computer but its old and could fail. Also have several USBs but have had those get damaged of just fail.

RE: Sioux Falls area

We havent stayed at Palisades SP we did an afternoon there 2 years ago while waiting for early voting to open. It is a nice park. Plenty of sites for a rig your size. South Dakota SPs have day use fee as well as camping fees. I can't say all but all SD parks we've stayed in have been top notch.

RE: Memphis Crossing

We've been using the 55 bridge for the last 5 years both spring and fall. We winter in Louisiana after mother daughter time in Chicago burbs and the reverse in the spring. We then do a volunteer job somewhere in cooler climes up North.

RE: phone-based GPS

I trust google on my phone more than the Ford nav. We did have a Garmin 10-12 years ago but found paper maps were more reliable. Did use if in cities they don't move attractions like museums very often. I see your up East those are not roads they're Indian trails and wildlife paths.

RE: cleaning duct work

Spray some Lysol into it kills mold.

RE: Tow Car auto insurance

Where do you receive your mail? Weve been fulltime 12 years soon to start 13th, same insurance carrier the whole time. Weve changed address three times in those 12 years. Two of those were and are mail forwarding addresses. What insurance companies want is where you garage your vehicle so they can rate you according to the zip code. No matter how good your driving record is your base rate is determined by your zip code. If the insurance company says it has to do with the Patriot Act as banks and financial institutions or brokerage houses do. We've shown enough mail from the federal government to prove that our address is recognized as our legal address. The only thing that I can think of is you have a mailing address in a state that your insurance company is not registered to sell insurance.

RE: Fuel costs for upcoming trip...

We canceled our volunteer position this summer $5.00 diesel 0n a 3000 mile round trip adds $650 to the fuel bill. I regret canceling but retired and fixed income this temporary inflation is doing a number on the budget. $300 increase on the RV insurance and haven't got the increase on the vehicles yet.

RE: Impact of fuel prices on travel

$4.00 Diesel is my limit. We canceled our return to the location we volunteered at the last two years. We are looking for a position a 1000 miles closer. I feel most traveling will be closer to home for most.

RE: Salem, Massachusetts

If your staying near Boston just book another night. Salem is like a suburb of Boston. Or look for a campground North of Salem. It's been 25 years since I was there and that was before we RVed. Mass looks big on the atlas but is 45th in size.

RE: Advice on parking pad size

How much distance between the rear tires and the back of the trailer? I'm often parked to where only my rear jacks are on the pad. If it's 8 ft you could have a nice 8 x 14 patio. JMT.

RE: ALASKA! Driving from California to Anchorage...

With good weather plan on 50MPH or less due to road conditions and no issues. 1. Met a couple with a bent 5er hitch and they were in day 19. 2. Another dropped a trailer axle. 3. Another was hung up in Fairbanks with issues. 4. And another had engine issues in Haines which was beyond local help. He decided to take the Ferry to Vancouver Island. Just the ones I knew about. Your sure a buzz killer. How many thousands made the trip without problems?

RE: Are the HP wars over?

I don't know the HP or torque of the rig in my sig I do know that towing 4000lbs more than the previous 5er and 6.4 powerstroke. Much more comfortable drive just put it in tow haul,turn on the EB, set the cruise and relax.

RE: Camper basically chopped in half by tree

And because of Mother Natures disregard for man and his plans we have insurance companies.

RE: Things to see Places to stay South to North Indiana

Like contemporary architecture Columbus Indiana a city of 50,000 orso is famous for great world class architecture. You would be a short distance from Brown County State Park for camping and also Nashville Indiana. A small town but areal tourist stop.

RE: Question 2 - TV Upgrade Hitch Question

If you brought a truck without the puck system and had a complete B&W system installed you would see your hole is square for either their gooseneck or their companion hitch. I have never had need for a gooseneck but one comes with the under bed frame attachments.

RE: Carrying extra fuel in Canada

I can tell you've never been north. With our previous 5er I carried an extra 10 gal of diesel and 10 gal of gas for the generator. There were plenty headed for the back country that looked like they were going to open their own fuel stations. The key is fillup whwn your at the 1/2 full mark or 1/2 empty unless you're headed for the bush your good
