  1. Florida to Alaska

    Good Sam's has a good trip planner for RV's. I use it all the time.
  2. Let me add 1 thing I think is important. Get a real weight before buying there are many RVs out there that are at or over weight with nothing in it even though the the sticker says differently. Being able to repair things yourselves will save you a lot of downtime. Enjoy your adventure!
  3. Antonito, CO to Chama, NM RT 17

    We love Sky Mountain RV resort on the south side of town.
  4. PILOT / Flying J ....YES!

    I have found them to be the same price as others on our travels. I'm not willing to drive miles off the beaten path to save a few cents per gallon. Time is important.
  5. Best Place to Summer

    We summer in Rociada NewMexico at the Pendaries RV Resort It is over 7000' elevation hot days are low 80ºs nights mid to high 40ºs. It is about 70 miles south of Taos and a little over 100 miles to Santa Fe so lots to see and do. If you watched the Netflix show Longmire it was filmed nearby around Las Vegas New Mexico.
  6. Escapees Roadside Assistance

    I have a question What does primary vehicles mean? In the Escapees roadside assistance program coverage. We have a number of vehicles. Does this mean the one we drive most often or all vehicle we drive? Primary vehicles Primary vehicles
  7. CPAP

    I'm not aware of a CPAP that uses 120 volts directly they all have a transformer/brick that changes the voltage to something lower the Resmed Airsense 10 uses 24 volts you have to check the the transformer/ brick to see what your unit needs if you want to bypass the transformer/brick.
  8. CPAP

    Not all cpaps are 12 volts some are 24volts. My resmed air sense 10 is 24 volts 3.5 amps. Check your brick it will give you the output.
  9. Tracking Electrical Problems - a Saga

    I know this is not the same thing but I would have the alternator checked out . I had a Chevy S-10 pickup that every few weeks would end up with a dead battery. It would go weeks at a time no problems. I had a good starter /alternator rebuilding place nearby and took my alternator to be checked they found a problem that if it stopped at a certain point it would drain a battery. I hope this helps.
  10. Induction cookware

    I use Ikea pots and pans induction symbol on the bottom . We bought this set It's very reasonable. http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/30286416/
  11. How does your state rate for taxes?

    Those charts are worthless as there are so many other costs to factor in and it is very difficult to figure out. I'm still working on a spread sheet with 3 or 4 states that are possible landing sites for us. Overall Texas keeps coming out on top but there is no cool summer mountain top for us so wintering is as good as it gets.
  12. HAM "shack" setup for your RV

    I'm a general studying for extra and love 40 meters. I have used a wire dipole but we just bought a lot in northern New Mexico and can't use a wire. I'm also looking at the Hustler 6BTV so i will be following this. KG5LTL
  13. GPS When is it time to replace?

    We have the Garmin 760RV LMT and have had it for a few years. It really depends where you are. Recently it has made some poor decisions. It had us drive 20+ miles out of the way and brought us on a much tighter road. We actually had to stop when a vehicle came the other way. I've started to use Good Sam's trip planner to confirm and it seems to be better at keeping us off tight roads but it still has to be watched.
  14. Pilot & Flying J

    I have found T/A Petro to be be #2 diesel no bio we are currently in New Mexico. I don't know for how long it will stay that way. I can tell what the bio % is by my milage. I'd be surprised to find that bio diesel run in the engine will meet the emissions standard due to the decrease in mpg. The lobby's 2% is B*lls**t. not real world numbers.
  15. Hurricane

    Hope all SKPs are safe!
