RE: 1987 37' Winnebago Elandan for Sale >$45,000< ??

32 year old tires? Please tell me you are kidding me!

RE: Honda cr-v electrical problem

My guess is that the charge wire is not right, maybe with an errant cross connection. If it is going dead while sitting not hooked up to the RV, there is obviously an errant draw. Something is not hooked up properly. Shouldn't be that hard to track it down. I'd be looking for an independent RV tech or towing installer, but not the one you mentioned.

RE: Comments on cancel your car Insurance

I have 2 identical cars -- one in the North and one in the South. When we switch location, the other car gets "suspended" at State Farm, for all but Comprehensive. It drops to about $20 for 6 months, and one call to the agent swaps out the coverages instantly.

RE: Utah National Parks: November? or April?

Well there you have it! -- Everyone has their favorite times in Utah. The obvious advice is just to go, enjoy yourselves, and keep an eye on the weather in those shoulder months!

RE: Utah National Parks: November? or April?

Weather is not predictable in those "shoulder" months. And, the temperatures can vary a whole lot between the high elevations like Bryce, and the lower ones like Monument Valley. Every time we've been there in November, it's been pretty cold up at Bryce, Capitol Reef, etc. So for me, I'd choose April over November. Shouldn't be too hot at places like Arches and Moab then.

RE: Easiest snowbird route from Seattle to Phoenix in January

It's all weather dependent, no matter which route you choose. If you prefer to avoid the Interstates as much as possible, take I82 and I84 to Twin Falls, then US93 through Nevada to Vegas, then Kingman and Phoenix. I've run it many times. Good road surfaces, biggest climb is Cabbage Hill at Pendleton. But Nevada is very remote, and don't run it if snow is forecast. Otherwise, Salt Lake, then Page, Flagstaff and Phoenix. Flag is the weather mess on that route.

RE: Flagstaff Az to Boise Id

Tossup. Decide which you prefer, Vegas traffic or Salt Lake traffic. I've run both routes many times. I think overall I prefer the 93 route, if only because less time spent on the interstates. It's likely an hour or so longer, but a lot less aggravating. If you pick 89, then yes, SR20 is the crossover connector of choice.

RE: Tucson to Olympia, WA

I like 65-68 in my Sprinter. Economic, and gets me there. But in Idaho and Utah I'm passed by the hundreds, many towing giant 5-ers at well over 80. Insane.

RE: Louder TV??

Learn something every day! I might try that Zvox gadget. Amazon'll let me try it for 30 days. I tried a Bose bar, but wasn't impressed -- Costco got it back within their 30 days too.

RE: Louder TV??

I have this issue at home. It appears that the TV production folks have gone to a different style of dialogue, supposedly more "natural" in volume. Watch an episode of "Elementary" for examples. We've given up. Gone to wireless headphones.

RE: Tucson to Olympia, WA

Watch the weather. Odds are against snow, but not by a lot.

RE: Sept Nova Scotia

Nice weather then. Low 70's when we were there in mid-Sept. Unless you get a cold snap! Some stuff closes after Labour Day, though.

RE: SoCal to North Central Washington: 395 or 95?

I always found the drive thru the tri-cites of WA to get on 395 very confusing.Heck I live here, and I find it very confusing also! We have morons designing the highways here.

RE: 2-3 Day Trip into Canada

If you find yourself near Cranbrook, forget the commercial CG's near the town, and head south on 95 to Moyie Lake Provincial Park. Very nice and quiet park.

RE: Lewis Clark Memorial Highway

I much prefer SR14 on the WA side to I-84 on the OR side. More scenic, less traffic. Good road surface. However, it is most all 2-lane, and the part between Camas and The Dalles has more curves. It's no problem for RV's of any variety.

RE: Best route from Biggs Junction to Coos Bay

Depends on which roads you prefer. I-84 to Portland, I-205, then I-5 would be the freeway route. Avoids most of the messy bits of Portland, but 205 is very busy as is 84 coming in from Troutdale. Troutdale is the gas place. Or, head from Biggs to Redmond. That road is very good, though mostly 2-lane. US 20 to Eugene is a good road also, but obviously twistier through the Cascades. Madras is a good gas place on this route.

RE: No Spare tire correct

My RoadTrek CS has a spare, tucked up under the chassis. Good to have. But it is way too heavy for me to work in my old age. Coach-Net guy will have to do it, but at least I have the tire.

RE: Travel to the USA

Easiest answer: Maybe. There is little consistency. Best bet is to not bring fresh produce and meat into the US. Just get it when you get there. The rules change at the whim of somebody -- nobody knows who -- such that even the border agents agree it is impossible to know all the current regs. That said, if they do check you over, and decide that your little bag of rice (like in my case!) or whatever is a no-no, just let it go, plead ignorance, and move on. No argument will succeed.

RE: Aggressive Sales tactics at CW

Sounds like you made a credit card deposit on the rig. What exactly was the "delivery checklist"? Surely there was a bunch of fine print to clarify all this? If not, then tell them to pound sand.

RE: Dash AC Control Knob Replacements

I'd be checking out my nearest "used auto parts dealer". (Otherwise known as the junkyard.)
