Figuring Mileages

OK Guys, dumb question. When I am planning our travels I search for “XXXXXtown, State to XXXcity, State” to get how far between destinations and of course it takes me to Google maps which is most helpful. Problem is sometimes the route and mileage they give doesn’t match up with when we are actually out there and using our Garmin RV GPS (which is awesome). Is there a free website of maps that would match up better with what our Garmin RV GPS tells us to do (which is of course the route we are going to use)? I do all this planning on a computer and not on my phone so I’m not sure if I would be interested in an app. Would prefer some free mapping website. Is there such a thing or how do ya’ll do it? (BTW I’m NOT new at this-just never stopped to try to figure out a better way).

RE: Opinions on diesel vs. gasoline

Thanking everyone for replies and awaiting more. Interesting reading. To clarify: we tow a 29.5 Arctic Fox FW(built heavy) with a 2017 Ford F250. We are only interested in the Nexus Super C Wraith 32W because that's the shortest Super C out there that doesn't have a "fold up" bed or a Jayco Greyhawk 29MV only with the NEW Ford engine. BTW I AM the wife!! LOL

Opinions on diesel vs. gasoline

Asking advice/opinions: Considering getting a Class C motorhome. We have had diesel truck with fifth wheel for many years. Diesel=power/torque. We travel a lot in the mountains-especially Colorado. We want a Super C, but not sure can afford. Second choice is a Jayco Greyhawk (gasoline engine). Looking at 30-32’ choices. We would flat-tow a Jeep Cherokee. Will we be sorely disappointed in a gasoline engine or should we stick with diesel?

RE: Is there an online listing for Army Corp of Engineers parks?

There used to be a CD you could get from a Corps office. I have one, but can't use it any longer since I don't have a slot for it to fit in on computer.

RE: "Waxing" a fifth wheel camper

I wanted to follow up here. I'm the OP. We finally got our camper done with the Wash WaxAll and we are super pleased. SOOOOOO much easier than what we were doing before. No more climbing up and down ladders a million times. We'll see how it holds up, but application and initial results are great! Thanks all for the advice.

RE: "Waxing" a fifth wheel camper

Everyone wants easy. Years of saltwater kept boats & now RV have taught me that easy & durable should not be used in the same sentence. Lots of products remove grime & light chalking to produce a wonderful satisfying shine. Many of them are combination cleaner waxes. Typically they look good for a month or so & then the sun gets to the surface again & it needs redoing. For durability you can't beat a product that is formulated to be a one purpose durable protectant. This is not easy. It is a three step process of wash, cleaner wax to get stains & chalking off, then protectant wax/sealer for a long lasting shine. My preference is to do this process once a year except for the front cap, which takes a beating from acidic bugs hitting it at highway speeds. It gets a twice a year treatment. I don't deal with salt water ,nor salt air, and I know the results of the product being mentioned . I know the results you are talking about, do you really know the results of what we have mentioned . Of course its not going to last as long as some of these other waxes. I don't care , it works for me . At 73 ,yes I want it a bit easier I'm done with the wax on wax off . As said if someone wants to do it that way, I repeat have a good time . Just gives me extra time on the water fishing :B No one is forcing anyone to use a certain product, I have used many many over the years with good results. A question was asked ,and given, and many use the product we have mentioned , works for many of us. cummins2014: I am laughing, but I say THANK YOU VERY MUCH. Totally understand a quick/easy product may not be as good, but hey it works for us. My husband is also 73 and ENOUGH of climbing around on ladders not to mention dragging an extension cord with a buffer, etc. No salt water/air where we travel/live. We've done stuff the hard way long enough. Our camper is no longer new anyway so we'll just do something easy and will be certainly better than doing nothing to protect our camper. We're with you!!! Going to give the Wash Wax All a shot. You keep fishing and we'll keep hiking/biking and less time buffing things. Many Thanks to everyone for suggestions and advice.

RE: "Waxing" a fifth wheel camper

I have went to Wash Wax All , spray on wipe dry ,couldn't be easier , thats all I use now on the fifth wheel ,and our car ,and truck. Got away from Rejek, and all the rest. I get it from Amazon. X2^^ Rob cummins2014 and Second Chance: THX for advice. Do you think we will have to do anything special to the camper being that we've previously used the Rejex before using the Wash Wax All? Just wash it? We usually use car wash liquid on it not just dish soap. Camper has been outside for about a year and then under a shed for about 6 months since last using Rejex on it.

"Waxing" a fifth wheel camper

For a few years we have used Rejex on our 2015 fifth wheel fiberglass camper. The last couple of times we applied it was difficult. Being you have to do a lot of this job on a ladder, we want to go back to using something easier to apply and wipe off. We use Turtle Wax Ice on our truck and are super happy with application and results—easy to apply and wipe off. I recently learned about new Turtle Wax Hybrid Solutions Ceramic Wash and Wax or the Hybrid Solutions Wet Wax which I believe(?) is a polymer like Rejex. How do we go about removing the Rejex other than polishing it off (which we aren’t interested in doing)? Can we just start using something like Turtle Wax Ice or TW Hybrid Solutions (on top of the Rejex without bothering to “remove” it)? Which would better: TW Hybrid Solutions Ceramic Wash/Wax, Hybrid Solutions Wet Wax or Turtle Wax Ice? Asking for opinions. THX

RE: Cordless blowers

Thanks to all for advice on cordless blowers. Tired of dealing with cords. We needed one for camper and home use. Ordered: Greenworks 48V (2 X 24V) BRUSHLESS 585 CFM LEAF BLOWER W/ (2) 4.0 AH USB BATTERIES. Seemed a reasonable middle of road price for a good compact blower. We'll see......

Cordless blowers

Hi. Anyone carry around a compact cordless rechargeable blower for blowing off camper roof, campsite pad, etc.? Which one, do you like it, where did you get it? We are shopping for one that we could also use at our small home blowing off deck, carport, a few leaves. THX
