RE: Gauges are not working

Our precious coach (Freightliner chassis) did that twice. Scared me. I turned it off and shut everything down, waited a few minutes and restarted. The coach had been setting for a few weeks both times

RE: Rear Fiberglass Cap Damage

I might look at a boat repair shop to have that repaired. Haven't found a auto shop that will do repair work on an RV. Usually say 'no space'. Most RV shops don't do body work.

RE: I 40 knoxville to Winston Salem

When you get past the Sevierville/Smokey Mtn Prk exit, within a few miles you will get into the gorge area with limited passing, a couple of tunnels and some curvy roads. I have done that a few times and with a LOT of truck traffic I was not comfortable with passing and being passed in those curves. THere has been bridge and lane work for the past few years and I don't know if it is finished or not. I cannot comment on the route from Statesville to W/S. There was extensive work on ramps, lanes and widening in the Statesville area a couple of years ago. That area is growing big and fast. Distance? 250-260 miles maybe. I remember being exhausted driving from Statesville to KNoxville. Knoxville to W/S ? 5-6 hours I expect

RE: Selling 2018 F150 to upgrade to 2022 F150 - worth it or not?

Dude, are your really serious? Surely not. With today's economy that is ridiculous even thinking about such a thing. The Fed just this morning is saying we are at the beginning of a recession. Maybe not to some, but it sure feels like to us old guys.

RE: Considering first DP - any advice?

We have had coaches with storage that came out with the slide and also the pass through style. I believe I liked the pass through best.

RE: Pactola Lake campground & Sheridan Lake campground

Don't know Sheridan, but have checked out Pactola. The CG(s) are pretty basic. I cannot remember even seeing any power sources at all. When we were hosting at Custer we tried to check area attractions on our off days. Lake was pretty low back in those days and I was amazed there was no power house below the dam. But then we are from N Georgia where the population is much more dense. The over-flow was a low spot in the dam that the highway crossed at grade level-no bridge, just a low spot in the dam. Scenery around the area was great however.

Batteries serviced

With the huge amount of heat we have had this spring and summer in the South, we have traveled very little since January. The rig stays plugged in to 30 amp with occasional short drives to keep the tires healthy. I figured it was time to take a look at at the house batteries. I had two gallons of distilled water waiting in the fridge where I kept it stored. There are 6 six volt batteries that are relatively easy to get to but hard to get water in unless you put it slowly with a small siphon hose (1/4 inch) I found the same acid level in all the batteries at about the same height- close to the top of the plates. An hour and 2.25 gallons of water I am finished. I washed a small amount of corrosion off of a couple of connections. I am trying to find a coating that is a spray on, red in color, that we used on a previous coach. Never had any corrosion with that but I cannot remember the name. What do you guys use?

RE: Towing 5K # with a gasser

We tow a '13 Wrangler 4 Dr with out '16 Newmar Canyon Star on a Ford chassis. Has a V 10 engine. It does fine in moving the Jeep but does have to strain some when we make steep pulls up long hills. I would rather have a DP but the handicap models are very few and far between

RE: Favorite way to skip the interstates?

We still have an road atlas from 2000 and still use it a lot if Seri can't talk with a satellite. I guess I am spoiled to the interstates unless I am in the 'relax and see the country' mode.

RE: fox fire of Murphy

Thanks JSO, looks pretty good to us. Especially concrete pads and what appears to level property with shade trees. Sadly the Fox Fire location was lacking in a lot of things. They may be able to turn it into a nice place one day, but right now it is on the side of a very steep hill. Sites are nicely spaced but most are a bit short for a big rig. Gravel sites are ok, but it has not been bedded down like it should be to make it possible for my wife to get around on her mobility scooter. There is a creek but it is small and down a steep embankment to approach it. They have planted some trees but it will be years before they become shade. I spoke with the owner via phone and he has a great attitude and the right ideas but I am not sure it will become popular because it is nearly 2 miles (1.7) off the main 4 lane on a narrow curvy hilly secondary road. I wish him the best

fox fire of Murphy

Anyone ever stayed here? Murphy North Caroline, just north of the Georgia town of Blairsville. Website looks good and the description of the amenities as well. Says gravel sites which is OK with us, but we need a site wide enough to allow the handicap ramp to extend and still have room to turn the mobility scooter without getting on the grass. Their websites says there is deals on week stays, but two places give two different prices. Lot of things to do in the area, but not sure I want to commit to an entire week if it is a loser. Please let me know

Strange topics

Been some strange topics, questions and answers lately in the Tech Issues. Are we having a full moon ?

RE: Note to Newbies with Children

There is a CG/resort in Myrtle Beach that has golf cart rentals. Well after dark these things are flying up and down the "streets" with a lot of youngsters driving and riding. Dangerous to us Geezer types that have to move slow and don't see very well. We did rent one one season and it was fun to drive around and just see the sites, so I understand how they enjoy it. But a broken hip or leg will pretty much end our camping and mobility completely

RE: Changing out Booth Dinette with table and chairs

I would find the chairs I want to use and find a good cabinet maker in your area. He will figure out what you want when you describe it

RE: UH-Oh! Akin Cancer

Bless you brother -prayers . I had a friend I had not spoken with in a few months contact me a few days ago and tell me he has lost an ear to C and it has gotten in the bone some how. He has had issues with his cheek in the past and pretty much ignored it. Cannot ignore this. He is disappointed, a bit scared and disappointed. Meds are not doing what the docs hoped for. We will say prayers for you as we do for him each night

RE: Chromebook

I am on an Acer Chromebook right now that I bought on a whim when my other computer had to have a heart replacement. I don't like it. Well, some features are all right but give me what little computer savy I have developed with my old style laptops
