RE: Flattest, warmest route to Las Vegas in January from NC

I-40 will definitely have more hills. While being the shortest it will also be more likely to have winter weather issues in January. Consider dropping down to I-20 and follow it to I-10 in west Texas. That route will be flatter than I-40, and shorter than an all I-10 route. Then keeping an eye on weather forecast. If winter storms are forecast for any where along I-20 then there are many places to drop on down to I-10.

RE: Extension cords

The first 50’ is already going to be large wire, 50 amp cord plus 30 amp cord. Only the last 50’ will be the smaller cord. So, while 10 ga would be slightly better, 12 ga would work. Unless you just want a heavier cord.

RE: Worst RV Brand List

Thor should be on the top of that list. Would never by anything made by Thor. Along with those who say "I would never buy anything made by Forest River". "I would never buy anything made by Jayco". "I would never buy anything made by .......".

RE: Extension cords

Assuming you do not plan on running the A/C and for a one time thing, I don't see anything wrong with your plan. Shouldn't be much voltage drop, even if they happen to have a 20 amp circuit available. Might even be able to run the A/C if they have 20 amp, and you run very little else.

RE: Looking for a good campground in Arkansas' mountain region.

Petit Jean state Park. Agree. Beautiful park in beautiful area. But Arkansas state parks have a 14 day limit every 30 days. The area around Eureka Springs is also beautiful with a number of RV parks in the area. Check for descriptions, reviews, and ratings.

RE: How do I turn off my Dish network

Just don't pay the bill. They suspend your account and when you want it back on just pay the bill. Unless he agreed to auto pay. Then they just charge your card every month whether you use it or not.

RE: Worst RV Brand List

Most of those manufacturers have many different brand name models within their family of products ranging from entry level to "high end" or "luxury" models. Without knowing if the percentages hold up against all models, or are skewed by certain models withing the family, then the results are of limited value.

RE: Ford F350 6.7

I have a 2012 F350 6.7 3.55 that doesn't have as much power as the newer models. And it tows my ~12,500 lb high profile 5er with no problem, whether in cruise and 6th gear at ~1,800 rpm at 68-70 mph across the flatlands, or climbing mountain passes in Colorado.

RE: Yellowstone Questions

If you want to stay at a hotel or lodge inside the park make reservation as soon as possibly. They sell out far in advance.

RE: Dealing with pet passing while on the road

If you are wanting to take the remains home, then consider cremation. Typically can be done in a couple of days depending on the provider. Or if longer, they may ship the remains to your home for you. We lost our "Georgie Girl" 2 years ago when we were in Arizona for several months. When I asked the vet about cremation and wether the ashes were in fact really our Girls ashes his answer was "We try to have some of her ashes " They did multiple animal cremations. So ask the question when making the decision about cremation. I agree. From There are three types of pet cremation: private, comingled, and partitioned. In a private cremation, only one animal's body is in the oven. During a partitioned cremation, multiple animals may be in the incinerator at the same time, but they are separated so that the remains from each can be collected separately. Some "active comingling" of remains is unavoidable. Communal cremation is the burning of several animals at once, without any form of separation.

RE: Best places to park the TT @ Yellowstone

Are you wanting full hookups, partial hookups, or no hookups? Or don’t care?

RE: Charging electric car

Takes a lot of power, ideally a 240 vac/50 amp outlet. Good description at this link.

RE: Large dog

Our various 80-85 lb Golden Retrievers have traveled with us since we bought our 5er in 2007. They love their walks. But they also love their naps. Take them for a long walk before we go out, they go into a dark corner of the bedroom and lay down, and that is where they are when we return. Pretty much typical for Goldens. But never gone more that about 3 hours, same as home. But we have camped beside people whose dogs have barked from the time they left to sightsee until they returned hours later. That’s not good for the dogs or the neighbors.

RE: 2020 Ram 2500/3500: MotorTrend Truck of the Year

kinda surprising with both ford and gm offering new powerplants. Seems to me that it is a different truck every year. If one was any better than the others there would consistently be repeat winners. Just a way to sell magazines because it creates controversy. The owners of that truck love to brag about it. The owners of the other brands love to complain about it.

RE: Will solid state batteries change the world?

Ford just introduced their new all electric Mustang with up to 459 HP, depending on model. And a range up to 300 miles on current battery technology. Obviously these manufacturers feel a battery breakthrough is imminent.

RE: what kind of batteries do i have?

If the batteries have vent/filler caps, a 6 volt will have 3 caps and a 12 volt will have 6 caps.

RE: do you do this

Never have. Last set of tires replaced after 8 years due to age. Parked on crushed rock in covered storage and typically never moved from late Oct til April. And they still looked nearly new with about 22,000 miles on them.
