Cost of RVing

"Across the country, campground prices generally start at around $20 a night and rarely exceed $75. The average RV spot, with power and water hookups, will run about $30, according to J.D. Power. Any way you slice it, that’s a significant savings over the typical vacation." From a news article by Camping World. https://blog.campingworld.com/travel-different/is-rv-camping-the-best-way-to-travel/ Not sure where she is finding those rates starting a $20 and averaging $30.

RE: propane tank storage in truck bed

Thanks all. Milkcrate it is. Had someone try to steal the Honda 2000 out of my truck one night in a campground near Mt Hood, but it didn't change my camping.

propane tank storage in truck bed

I see a need to do most of my grilling on my Weber Q1200 in the national forest this summer. I would like to take my 20# tank instead of the little $$$ one pound tanks that are hard to install. My old fiver has limited storage so the tank would have to ride in the truck bed. Any good solutions to securing a 20# tank from moving about on the road and from walking away when parked for shopping? I'm thinking a milk crate would stabilize it and a lock cable.

IH-5 through Seattle options?

I will be travelling through Olympia in route to Anacortes area about mid-day on a July Saturday. My last time through a few years ago I used IH-405 mid day Sunday, expecting light traffic, and it was white knuckles all the way. Pulling a fiver. Any preferred route from a local? Thanks, bill

RE: Hwy 12 in Utah between Torrey and Bryce -- amazing!

SingleTree NFS CG about 12 miles south of Torrey is a nice overnight on 12. Several years ago the brakes on my trailer picked that strip of road to short out on the southbound run. Yikes. Finally found the short inside the axle tube after much searching.

Reef RV in Rocky Point status

Some family members are planning to visit in late Jan. I haven't stayed at the Reef in several years. They were working on the cruise ship jetty then so a bit of noise there. Is it still a quiet place before the spring break crowd? In descent shape? Some of the electrical was sketchy then unles in the front row. Any big hassles crossing at Lukeville? Thanks.

RE: tranny temp got to 250!! yikes,, troubling questions

I have a 2001 F-250 7.3 and I had to watch my tranny temps all of the time until I put the Ford V-10 tranny cooler on it. Now I never see 200 degrees. It is 40 percent bigger than the oem and comes standard with Ford tranny replacements. It should have been oem to start with since the 7.3 puts a bigger load on the tranny. Since it is an OEM for the V-10 it fits right on the bracket with no modifications. Your Woods tranny may already have the larger cooler. Good luck.

RE: door lock won't open

Gave up fooling with it and drilled it out this morning. Easy and took just a few minutes. Went in above the keyhole to get the tumblers, but no luck. Then just went through the keyhole with a 1/4 inch and that did it. Picked up a Bauer 013-535 Trailer lock at Camping World and it was a perfect fit. $41.79 plus at CW. Cheaper online but needed it now. In hind sight, the original metal back plate was sturdy metal vs the composite of the new one. I kept the old one and will probably replace it some day when we are not triple digits heat. The drama is ended. Bill

RE: door lock won't open

Thanks to everyone who replied. Yes, I have graphite lock lube and used it. I will try again in the morning and will also shoot some oil if graphite doesn't work. I know oil is a temporary fix but that would let me remove it non-destructively and put in a new unit. Anything I do here in Scottsdale has to be in the very early morning. Into the teens all this week, again. I envy all of you in cool climes. Bill

door lock won't open

Went by my RV to check it out and cannot get the door lock to open. One of the paddle style with two keys: one for the deadbolt and another for the handle. Deadbolt won't budge and it was very hard to remove the key. (Wondering if someone tried to jimmy it.) It worked smoothly until it didn't. Suspect I will need to have it drilled and install another one. If I can find a compatible for a 2001 Sunnybrook Fiver. There is a Bauer on Amazon that looks the same. Has anyone drilled one of these out and replaced it? How can one move the deadbolt after drilling? Or must I spring for a locksmith. Thanks.
