    I see you fixed the miss in the V10 engine problem and the slide bushings the easy way.

    Cut off time for late check ins?

    Tenters are not the only late arrivals that don't care about others. While hosting at Matagorda had a late arrival next to us that I know slammed his door at least a 1000 times while setting up. I believe people who care go to bed and set up in the morning. Had people with a pop top in Grand Prairie Canada came in late made all kinds of racket and let their kids go to the playground. Now tents are more work for a host in the National Forest because they will use your facilities more than rv people but I know they pay for the use (maybe). Young people who tent seem to think they shouldn't have to pay. But we keep going back for more fun working with the traveling public.

    Slide shims broke?

    H&W in Iowa they know what they are doing will do it right for a fair price. They made it they will fix it. Had a Winnebago dealer do 1 slide $500 1 year later H&W redid both slides less money.

    Broke down?

    I hate the going rate most shops $100 -$125 per hour but I do like people who know the vehicle Ford. Not sure if dealers in El Paso can service a coach but if they can't they should be able to direct you to a good shop. If spark plugs need changing Ford knows what they are looking at and the risk.

    New Carpet Installation Tips

    Kevin , Ernie in Weatherford Tx is good and he is always busy. He does mostly engineered wood but told us he will do carpet. Look for on other rv sites. There is another guy in Tucson I think his name is Chuck you can find him on rv carpet sites.
  11. We did our own carpet renew. My wife picked out the products and I did the install. We chose Home Depot for carpet because they would order carpet with binding for slides and the sections that were bound shipped direct to us the rest picked up at store. We chose Lowe's for Smart Core flooring for galley living room. Project took about 1 month ordering and install. Ernie in Weatherford Tx. is really good for info and he will install engineered wood if you want that done. I had my had doubts wife doubted more but turned out better than I imagined. Bed slide was easier than I thought and dog house (engine cover) much easier than I thought. I bought a good stapler (Roberts) and is up for sale now. Are you volunteering at Foscue .If you are please say hello to Ann, Jason (he is one of the best vol. bosses we had) and Clint a vol. friend just tell them Otmer said hello.We might stop there in March on the way home.

    Alaska 2017

    Driver you ain't going to believe this, I have made the trip 3 times and can't wait to go again. Last year we allowed 1 week Sweet Grass to Tok then 1 week Alaska then 1 week back to Sweet Grass. We started mid September no crowds . Did the trip in October once covered about 500 per day business & pleasure in my pickup. Did the trip March once delivering motorhome about 400 per day. So it depends on what you want to see and spend time seeing. My wife went with me last year and loved BC more than Alaska. So saddle up enjoy your ride.

    Need help with flattest route in Pennsylvania

    I will say you are smart to ask we all make mistakes on picking a route at sometime. Your not the first or last to heat your brakes up. In a lot of places the old rule is go down the hill at the speed you went up. I am sure I got more miles backing up than most on here have going forward and I made mistakes. You asked and some help, others criticized.
