RE: Buy new now or wait until end of summer

Buy at the end of summer & buy used. You might just pick up a one season lightly used unit that has taken it's biggest hit in depreciation.

RE: Question about max 5th wheel size in Apgar, Glacier NP

Yeah, size matters. We are a few feet shorter than you & found ourselves in a private CG to the west of Glacier NP. Apgar again is on our hit list this year too. We provided quite the show squeezing ourselves into a site really not compatible with our size last time there. The key is arriving Sunday to Thursday & as early as possible. The biggest irritation is finding something like a class B or TC in one of the few long sites.

RE: Battery price question...

It is much more complex than simply what it on the price tag. It starts with your camping habits & how many AHs you can get into the battery space. A solution seldom suggested is using a single 4D case sized battery. A 4D battery is about the same size as 2 GC6Vs & similar AHs. I imagine the weight is about the same as 2 6Vs. The small advantage is simplicity of cabling. No in series linking of cable to be monitored. What is the service life of a 4D vs 2 6V GCs? I don't know. I use a 4D, but it is an AGM. Being an AGM opens a whole nuther can of discussion worms but my last AGM 4D gave me 9 very active years.

RE: Bear Spray

Think about it. If the bear is so close that you can reach it with bear spray you are already in deep trouble. Noise. They won't like noise. Especially a very loud noise that they are not familiar with. We carry a boat air horn

RE: 5050 miles in 9 Travel Days

Sheesh! I am worrying about 10000 miles in 120 days not being enough to see what there is to be seen.

RE: What do you use for local travel once camped up?

We have a couple ofthese the XFS model. Rim size looks to be the same as most BMX bikes. The only changes recommended would be to replace with BMX tires & a more comfy seat.

RE: What do you use for local travel once camped up?

There are an awful lot of pedal bikes that never come off of the carrier rack. We bought two foldups with good intentions. They are well beaten up. Not from use but from being hauled around & getting scratched getting moved from inside the trailer to against a tree. Anything is better than a pedal bike but for getting around the local area look at a 150-250cc scooter such as this.

RE: RV At Dealer for 90 Days Now for An Awning Replacement!!!!!

Even if I had a dealer to go to, I don't, I would use a mobile tech. Have the awning shipped wherever necessary, & be prepared to give the tech a hand since an awning is a big awkward thing to handle.

RE: Removing seized shackle bolts?

Just did the same job and it took a long box wrench wedged against the frame and a 24" breaker bar. As soon as it broke loose it was normal ratchet work. Keep in mind that the nuts bottom against the shoulder of the bolt so it locks on more than if it was just holding two pieces together. This way. You need a bigger 'hammer'. Sometimes you need to get creative. I had a similar situation in a very awkward place but I got one end secure with a box wrench up against something secure & the other side had a breaker bar with pipe extension. Here is the 'extra' part. It was not moving even with the pipe at the end of the breaker bar so I used a bottle jack, put considerable pressure on it, sprayed the area with penetrating oil, & walked away. Came back the next day & it had broken free.

RE: Free overnight camping in small towns

Free is rare but across the country there are small towns with parks that have a few sites. Easier to find a county fairgrounds or state fairgrounds. Basic & mostly cheap. Often close to unoccupied. FHUs unlikely but good for power at least.

RE: Interesting vehicle

I suspect that this is like the sailor in the boating world. He has a sailboat but hardly ever actually sails it. More often than not he is motoring from place to place. Same with these expedition RVs. They seldom truly get off the beaten path. They spend most of their time at a FHU CG.

RE: Delaware and Maryland camping help

Keep searching. There are a bunch of CGs on the Eastern Shore. My home turf so to speak but we stick to the SPs such as Martinak in Denton, MD, Killens Pond SP, S of Dover, DE. & Assateague Nat Seashore S of Ocean City. There are private CGs also but, as pointed out already, few give value for money. 4-5 nights should not be a big deal without FHU.

RE: Interesting vehicle

Creative. I would think that such a setup using a similar class truck is very common in Australia & Europe where the humans are much smaller & there is no need for the 40 & 45' tag axle monsters which are so common running around N America.

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.

RE: Boarder Crossing

The fastest crossing we ever had into Canada was at Port Huron. No line. I don't think that we were stopped for more than a minute. We have crossed many times at many places. Almost every time has been easy. Most unpleasant was a US agent in WA who must have been having a bad day & was completely without humour. We always pull up to the window prepared. Turn engine off. Take sunglasses off. Have all possibly needed paperwork ready. Start off with a Good morning, Good afternoon or a simple Hi, how you doing? These people have tough jobs to do often dealing with less than honest people. They ask some dumb questions sometimes. "Where have you come from?" demanded this officer at the WA state crossing. He did did not see the humour in me leaning out the window a little, pointing backwards & saying "Canada." Almost an hour later it had gone pretty far down the hill. No inspection of RV. Much of the problem caused by the officers own lack of understanding of who needs to have a visa to enter the US & who does not.

RE: Wiring a boat

A skiff is a different boat to different people. The common understanding is that it will be less than 20' long generally. Do you have a side console, a center console or tiller steer? Where will the depth finder/fish liar be mounted? For mine I ran a decent gauge line from my battery switch to a bus bar in the console. From that power can be supplied to all accessories, navigation lights, cigarette lighter, depth finder, anything else 12V that I might want to power. "border=0" For Full-Size Image.

RE: campground reservations

Memorial Day & July 4th weekends, now if you can. All other weekends, the sooner the better if in touristy areas. Sunday to Thursday, wing it. Keep in mind that the FHU sites go first. W/E sites next. Simple power sites. Dry sites least demand.
