RE: Who has sold everything and started rving for life

I didn't see a follow-up from the OP, so my advice is to take it step wise. Travel a few days, then a few weeks, then a few months. Meanwhile see how much you can downsize and what's left. With this, and the travel, you'll knows whether a home base is better than not. Then you can get into the bigger decisions like selling the house. Keep us posted.

RE: Wish us luck, pray for the marriage

In between obsessing the details and sweating the small stuff, don't forget to enjoy the ride and so to smell the flowers... With the better half of course.

RE: Yellowstone Questions

Just because the GPS shows 60 miles doesn't mean you'll be able to Transit that distance, even within half a day. I'd suggest you pick a section of Yellowstone and focus your trip and your lodging in that area. there's no reason to go outside the park unless you miss how the rest of the world looks.

RE: who uses Fog lights? / Hella 500 / OEM connector->F350

We added for lights and had them wired in, then we added another aftermarket light: an LED light bar about 24" long. This is what I'd suggest- it came with an easy wiring harness and puts out 3000 lumens. We bought it at Canadian Tire, so look around and you might be surprised what's out there.

RE: Wichita to Albuquerque suggestions

Thanks again for all the ideas; we're in Liberal today (DW: Oz fan) but will have to try the other routes on future runs. I can't believe the National Beef processing plant produces this much smell! Or that this town (despite the smell) was named in one of the top places to live lists. I'm going to learn a bit more about why; there's always good reasons to live in every place.

RE: V 10 mpg

We stay around 7mpg going 70, but were at 6 pulling a full size sedan/ dolly through the mountains this summer... Faster downhill and slower uphill so i figure the same average speed. No mods, 2002 v10.

RE: What a bunch of junk.

Airstream looks like the wrong part was pulled, but everything else sounds like workmanship. Given these are new models, and not knowing the associate processes- I wonder if internal QA caught these, a safety inspector did, or the consumer experienced the issue and then the recall came through.

RE: Road Trip! BC to California

Sounds like a great trip! Don't forget to consider roadway elevation as part of the time and show calculations... 800 km would make for dinner long driving days with darkness. Maybe N. Cal makes more sense.

Wichita to Albuquerque suggestions

We don't mind the interstate but I'm curious what sights, and roads, you all might suggest for our upcoming trip. Thanks much.

RE: Dirt

I do prefer the soft, and warmth, from carpet but I hear you on the dirt. There's a lot of dust and flying particles, and since there's very little air filtration, I'd guess that's most of what your floors are collecting. We remove shoes when walking in and that helps with staying clean and clean up.

RE: Full time storage, but far away from home - possible?

That's reassuring; thanks for the quick feedback all. I'll keep an eye for any further input, but will proceed :-)

Full time storage, but far away from home - possible?

We learned about a family that parks in Anchorage but lives in Salt Lake. They fly twice a year, enjoy their vacation, and come back home. Is anyone familiar/ able to offer tips? We'd like to park in the Southwest at a secure storage lot, then go every 3 months or so. In the next 12 months we hope to see NM, NV, AZ, CA. My 2 concerns are that my generator won't get exercised, the gas will get stale. But it's hard to gauge how much of an impact that is on a 20 year old rv - it probably sat around a lot before we bought it 3 years ago. Thanks.

RE: Cell service in Canada

We've had good service with a TMO all inclusive plan- it's often better than in rural areas of the US. PEI to Yukon were fine with international included roaming.

RE: Ready to Live on the Road and Excited

Typo: Visit *non* off-road areas

RE: Ready to Live on the Road and Excited

Without putting a damper on your plans, it seems like you're making a big lifestyle shift- without explaining why. That's your business and right, of course, but it raises an eyebrow for me- like Pianotuna. I suggest smaller steps to downsize and sell between now and then. Do you need the Jeep right away or could you visit dear off-road areas the first year and be fine with the Camaro, for example. I think it's be a blast. Ditto for leaving MI- maybe buy a 2 bdr and use 1 for storage, and then you have a domicile and a home base to park toys that didn't fetch a good price. You can sell the smaller house in a couple years- or use it instead of TN, going south in winter with the RV. There are so many ways to slice it, and plenty of people I've talked to only see 1 option, and then have hindsight.

RE: Water Usage

You'd be surprised how effectively even a trickle of water will do the job- dishes, toothbrushing, sometimes even a quick rinse shower to feel fresh. Our culture of running water at high pressure is changing- some hotels have separate knobs so you can adjust in the tubs nowadays. But we don't have to wait till it's mainstream.

RE: Nova Scotia

Welcome! It's a pretty drive, especially on some of the back roads.

Propane tank integrity test

Had anyone heard of this? It made sense when 1 of the had stations said I needed a current test (within 10 years) - propane tanks are metal so of course their parts could corrode, malfunction, etc. over time. I called Ferrellgas, American, Uhaul, nothing. They said try RV dealers- none of their service departments heard of it for an attached tank, only travel trailers with tanks that come off. I called some repair places and they didn't do it. Is the test something any of you have done, and if so, where? How much, and how long does it take? Appreciate any help.

RE: Alaska Marine Highway

You may be surprised at the cost, that trip sounds like 3-5k. You can enter up to a 30' in their website and get an estimate- we first compared pricing against a hotel/ meal itinerary, and then ultimately decided that would be a separate fly-in trip. Plan your trip around when the eagles will be in Haines, and don't forget a boat tour or two.
