RE: Colorado please

I have found The Mountain Directory to be indispensable when planning routes in the mountains. I have the combined East/West version on my laptop and have it open, along with Google Maps and RV Trip Wizard when planning all travel in mountains. It will give you all information on grades, elevations, restrictions (tunnels and bridges, too), runaway truck ramps - all you need to know. The Mountain Directory Rob

RE: best route, West to East?

In Utah on I-80, you'll encounter Parley's Summit east of Salt Lake City. There are long (6 mile) stretches of 6% grades. Vail Pass on I-70 in Colorado is a bit more severe with stretches of 7 miles of 7% grades. Rob

RE: 301 in Ga. and SC

US 301 is generally a good road in GA and SC. We prefer it (and other US highways) to 95 when we're not in a big hurry (which, as retirees, we rarely are). 95 is unpredictable and can be a nightmare. We don't mind seeing the countryside and smaller towns. Rob

RE: 5th Wheel Friendly RV Parks I-5 Norcal/ Southern Oregon

Some that we've stayed at in the area that accommodated our 36' fifth wheel include: Rice Hill RV Park, Oakland, OR Cypress Grove RV Park, Gold Hill, OR Redding RV Park, Redding, CA All were very pleasant Rob

RE: Lithium battery box temps

I use YoLink temp sensors (and leak sensors) in a number of places around the RV. This setup may not be for everyone since it requires a YoLink smart hub and WiFi/internet connection, but we are full-time and have an unlimited hotspot on all the time. The YoLink equipment is very affordable but, if WiFi and internet are an issue, there are plenty of good alternatives for weather units with multiple sensors available on Amazon, or at your local home improvement store. The advantage to the YoLink stuff is that there is a phone app and the hub sends me alerts if there are leaks or if the temp drops below my set point near the water utilities in the basement. I no longer have a temp monitor in the front compartment with the batteries since I have thermostatically-controlled heating pads on two of them and the two newer batteries are the internally heated ones (all Battle Born).

RE: Alternative to bumper sewer hose carrier

The RhinoFlex won't fit in one of the made-to-purpose under-frame tubes with the 90 deg. elbow attached, either. Like IAMICHABOD, I keep the main hose and other fittings in a large RubberMaid tub in the basement while on the road. I keep extensions in the two under-frame tubes that came on our rig. Rob

RE: Eagle vs Montana High Country vs Avenue

Have you looked at the Grand Design product line? I believe they are a bit better than the ones you listed. Ken Thanks for the suggestion. I have looked at GD, and they are in the running. There are 2 things I don't like, I don't like the dark cabinets (23's are lighter, but wanting a closeout), and I want a residential fridge, I don't trust that Furrion 12v fridge. All of the Solitudes are available with a full-size, 120VAC residential refrigerator. We have one in ours. Rob

RE: HELP: Suburban SW12DEL propane issue

I'm not sure the drip and the burner problem are related. Could the gas problem be a failing valve - like the solenoid not able to hold the valve open as long as it needs to? Do your furnace and cooktop work OK? Rob

RE: Hard tasting water

The Camco filters won't take care of bad tastes. Brita is a cult (they quit letting Consumer Reports test their products because of inconsistent results not meeting the claims of the manufacturer). The best advice above is to put a separate filter underneath your kitchen counter with a spigot on top and use this filter cartridge: Link Rob

RE: MorRyde IS & Disc Brakes

We've had the MORryde IS and disc brakes installed on two fifth wheels. As full-timers who travel a lot (rather than staying in one place) I wouldn't be without it. If my Google search pulled correct information, the GVWR for your fifth wheel is 10,122 lbs. - a bit on the light side for even the 7K MORryde suspension units. If I were in your shoes, I'd have the disc brakes installed and pass on the $6,500+ for the IS. Rob EDIT: OK - apparently you updated your RV info while I was typing. What I said, but the decision on the IS is yours. We really like it.

RE: Lo height profile 5er TH

With fifth wheels, the height is in the front by default (gooseneck goes up over the truck bed and, if you want standing headroom in the front, it has to be a certain height). Most modern 5th wheel toy haulers come in around the 13'3" - 13'5" range. If you want shorter, you may have to consider a travel trailer toy hauler. Rob

RE: Can you mount solar above vents?

In the summer, attic vents exhaust heat. Solar panels generate, and therefore have to dissipate, heat. I would not mount a solar panel over an attic vent. Rob

RE: More and more instant hot water systems

One problem with the on-demand WHs I don't see mentioned above is the fact that, since they are not constantly heated, they're not well-suited for use in very cold temps (they will freeze and crack the heat exchanger). Winterizing has to be done carefully to not have the same thing happen during winter storage. I'm in the "what were they thinking" camp (pun or not as you prefer) as far as using them in RVs and will stick with our 12 gal. tank-style WH, thank you. Rob

RE: Visible Phone Hotspot

From a tech trade rag: "Visible limits mobile hotspot data speeds to 5Mbps—most carriers don’t have speed limits for hotspot usage. Visible only allows you to connect one device at a time—the single connection makes sense, though, considering that the 5Mbps speeds don’t really support multiple devices." Rob
