RE: Closer to a head on then you ever want to be...

As I read the news reports about road wrecks and/or fatalities I am amazed at the number of intoxicated people out on the roads. I don't know the answer, but the rest of us are at their mercy.

RE: Twin Falls ID to Las Vegas NV Advice

We do this twice yearly. Out of Ely, take US 6 to RT 318, 318 back to US 93 near Alamo. It is shorter and a pull or two less. Great road, it will be you, some semis', some RVs and some cars. Brings you out at I-15 just north of N. Las Vegas. Just watch weather for Ely.We also do this route twice a year. Only concern in October is dust storms. They can be a real hazard. But you can see them coming for 20 miles! And don't leave Ely with less than adequate fuel. Speed traps: Jackpot, McGill, Ely suburbs, Lund, and Hiko.

RE: Black water tank health concerns and questions

I'm not sure why OP is so afraid of his/her own doodoo.

RE: Oklahoma dry camping on US412

Perhaps not what you want, Burt I stayed at Boiling Springs State Park, near Woodward -- nice and quiet.

RE: Video Transfer.. Help

My DVD stack is modest, but they are all on my computer now, available to copy to ipad for traveling. I use DVDFab or Handbrake.. Takes a bit to figure the software out, and it is a slow job, but it is better than relying on the airline's choices.

RE: For your consideration, the Chinese Airstream.

Typical of stuff from that country: They can't be bothered to design their own RV, so they copy one of our iconic brands, and even use the trademark name. D'bags.

RE: RVing to the Island Provinces

Went there a few years back, but not Newfy or Labrador. Great trip. Drove the whole Gaspé, etc. We went in September, which was good except that some parks, RV places, etc., start to shut down after Labor Day. Since I'm in your town I'd be happy to share a Starbuck or something and show you where we stayed, etc.

RE: Cleveland to Upper Peninsula of Michigan

Never had an issue with the Mac. Keep your eye on the roadway, where it should be anyway. You'll be across before you know it.

RE: Windows 11 ..headaches..

This is why we hang on to old tablet computers. You can sometimes use them to do a single job, perhaps like this one.

RE: Crossing into Canada

It does surprise me that the Canadian border official denied your entry. I've found them always courteous and helpful, while still being serious in their job. Perhaps there was an "attitude conflict" on the part of either you or the official.

RE: Crossing into Canada

Caveman: Here is my advice regarding email: Start over at gmail. Make a new name and account. No dots except before "com". I have about 5 gmail addresses and it is not a problem. I use one for things I really want, and the others are for the hucksters and morons out there to use.

RE: Crossing into Canada

You must use arriveCAN within 72 hours of crossing I understand "within 72 hours" is there a MAXIMUN time limit? Say 2 weeks. I would like to complete the ArriveCAN form before I leave TN for my trip to CAN.No. You have to do the arrive can thing LESS than 72 hours before your arrival. It won't let you state a time beyond 72 hours. But you can enter your data into the app ahead of time and save it. That will help.

RE: Crossing into Canada

Officially you need to use the ArriveCan. I used it 3 weeks ago at Detroit/Windsor and it worked fine, though a bit fussy. However, I'm hearing that if you get to the border and claim "it didn't work/no internet access/old and stupid", the border person will in all likelihood approve you. You still need your passport (or enhanced DL) and your covid card. So if they don't, not a lot lost. Turn around and come back. Coming back, you need your passport (or enhanced DL).

RE: Battery issues

Wait. The chassis was shut down for 7 weeks. Most rigs I know will not be charging the chassis batteries while plugged into shore power. That's when you use the battery "instant switch" to get her going, then drive around to charge it up. Or run a Trickle-Charger on the chassis battery while shut down.

RE: Banff to Spokane - Help

Also, Moyie Lake Provincial Park, a bit south of Cranbrook, is a lovely place to camp if you want to be out of the cities. Gives you a good place to get your rig in order for the border, a few miles further down.

RE: leaving the stick and brick for the summer

As a snowbirder, we leave our place in Arizona (Mesa) for 6 months. This is a big topic. Half of us turn everything off. They seem to manage. I'm in the other half: a/c to 90. Leave reefer on, with all bath/kitchen stuff possible in it. Humidity is a non-issue there. But yes, turn off the water main valve. In all the places I've had, the irrigation is upstream of the house valve. On purpose.

RE: unified tow brake

I was very happy with that device. Too bad it just kind of evaporated from the market.

RE: Covid in RV Parks

From the start, this issue has been plagued by inconsistent data. People do not know what data to trust, because the professionals themselves have been inconsistent. Everyone seems to think their data is correct, especially with the "I went to the source" rationale. We all should avoid being critical of others whose perspective might be different. All anyone can do is take what precautions they think appropriate. Well, that's your opinion. Another opinion is that the data has NOT been inconsistent. The virus has mutated numerous times. The health care profession has learned something new on a regular basis and updated advice based on that.Well it is not relevant to this discussion, but I am in fact a physician. Capable of assessing the "data". The level of obfuscation and politization in the medical literature in this epidemic has been astounding. Take the precautions you feel indicated. I will.

RE: Montana Route Question

I confess, I have not driven that road. But it looks comparable to lots of Alaska roads. A 26 foot C should manage fine. Slowly.
