  1. Only 5er I'd consider pulling with a 1/2 ton is the one made by Escapee in Canada. And the truck would need a big engine or the Ford EcoBoost and 4.10 gears. ken
  2. I don't think seeing a bunch or old wrinkled people would be my thing. Ken
  3. Get a convection microwave. The best one we had, also had a broiling element. Ken
  4. It is getting harder and harder finding any park that will let you wash the rig. Some that used to charge a $10 or so fee to let you wash have stopped that practice. A few have a deal set up with a local that comes in with his water in a tank and pressure wash the RV. Talked to one and he had to pay a kick back to the park. Problem is I do not use any pressure washer on my rig and no one else is allowed to as well. It has been 6 months since a scrubbing and it is looking dirty. The Dri-wash only works so good and then it needs a scrubbing and wax.
  5. First thing I offer is that this is an indoor floor product. We have seen several RVs that looked great for the first couple of years. Then the surface starts to craze and even flake. At this point it looks horrible. The solution is to strip the finish and reapply. Final conclusion is I will not use it on my RV. Ken
  6. Some folks coming in late do not have any concern for neighbors. We have run across this issue both as campers and as host. As a host, if after 10 PM, we call the Ranger on duty to address the issue. If we are just a camper, I have no issue opening the door and telling them to reduce the noise level and be considerate of other campers. If it continues, I get in touch with the host or call the park after hours number. Ken
  7. I have had to replace my RhinoFlex more often now than the older ones I had. Seems the material quality has gone down and they do not last as long. Ken
  8. Big5er, it is plenty easy to lean the walking stick against your shoulder, pull out a bag and pick up the poop. I love dogs and seldom have an issue with a dog. The problem is irresponsible dog owners that do not feel the leash requirement applies to them. In short, the problem lies solely with the dog owner not properly restraining his dog, so look elsewhere to place blame. Ken
  9. 491 from Gallup to Shiprock has a bit of construction and down to one lane st s few spots, Biggest problem is some of the sections are really a roller coaster ride, Down to 40 mph at times and still shook up things a bunch. Ken
  10. We are west of Albuquerque off of I40. My wife want to see Four COrners anyway, so we head west and then to Shiprock and up to Moab then to Grand Junction and Rifle. This is the route the Garmin RV GPS pcks as an alternate. We are hosting at Rifle Gap for the Summer in the Lakeview unit. Stop by for a visit and a Howdy. Ken
  11. We are headed to Rifle. Thanks folks. Since we are towing heavy and getting near the ratings on the truck, I think the extra 100 miles or so it wil be worth it to go to Gallup and then north to Moab then Grand Junction and back east to Rifle. Ken
  12. Thanks for the heads up. Ken
  13. Is the better route to pick up Hwy 550 north of Albuquerque to Grand Junction or to go to Santa Fe and pick up 285 to 24 to I 70? First time through this area and looking for the easier route. Thanks, Ken
  14. We went through 3 Tailgatersand finally sold the last replacement while it was working. Now have a Wineguard G2 and no issues. Last week I installed a Wineguard Traveler for Dish on the roof. It works great. Ken
  15. My 2 cents worth is I would not want a HQ in a large city like Austin. Livingston works great. Ken
