  1. Angels. Heaven. I was close. Thanks.
  2. In past Escapades there was a gal who did a seminar on cleaning hints, and also sold cleaning items, microfiber towels, special sponges etc. I can’t find her name, and would like to reorder, if she’s still selling. As I recall “angel” was in her name. Can anyone help?
  3. We’re thinking of changing our travel style. Not totally hanging up the keys, but close. We have a 2008 Monaco Monarch and 2012 Honda CRV, set up for towing. Would we be better to sell each separately, or together as a package?
  4. We bought a used Fireball travel trailer in 1967; 13 1/2 ft. Have RVd ever since. Fifty-two years and still rolling along.
  5. I found my SA 2015 discs.🙂 Installed in Windows 10 fine. Now I have to relearn. Overall, I like the program (I’ve had it for years, updated annually), but it’s not intuitive at times. Thanks all for the input.
  6. I don’t think Street Atlas runs on later versions of Windows. Can’t find my original discs. I still have it on an older laptop (I think). May dig it out and see if there’s still life in it. It is too bad that a pretty good program was allowed to die. Obviously RVing is a limited market.
  7. I know this topic has been discussed, but “search” didn’t bring it up. With all its quirks, DeLorme SA worked well for me. Is there a similar substitute? And please, Google maps is a great program, but NOT a substitute😕
  8. I got my replacement motor from Amazon. Not an easy install, the way the steps are bolted on, but definitely doable DIY.
  9. Golly. I guess I’m a simpleton. After running my battery down after first towing our CRV ( new in 2012), I simply ran an additional wire ( I think about a #16) from our coach battery to the positive terminal on the Honda. Put a spade connector near the tow bar hookup. Simply connect it when we hook up, unplug when we disconnect the umbilical cord. No switch, no fuse pulling, no dead battery. Has worked for 6 years.
  10. There is an article in the San Luis Obispo Tribune (central California coast) about a new RV park being built in nearby Paso Robles, heart of the wine country. Sun communities, operator of many parks across the country, will price spots starting at $69.00 per night. Sun already has two other parks in Paso, so knows what the market will bear. We noticed on our last trip back east that the days of $25.00 spots is diminishing. But beware: things start in California, and spread! 🙁 We used to think KOA was a price leader. Not any more. Sun will offer amenities (pools, spas, etc.) to make it a nice experience, but our travels have found many so-called “resorts” that we wouldn’t stop at.
  11. Geez. All I want to do is be able to make a simple comment about what’s going on as we drive. Like, “did you see those hills,” or “that guy couldn’t merge on a bet,” or so forth. I’m following some of the suggestions.
  12. I have an inverter outlet in my bedroom. When dry camping, I use that. I move the plug to a 110v outlet when we have hookups. Easy Peasy. CPap doesn’t seem to draw all that much.
  13. With your DP the engine and noise is 40 feet behind you. My class A has a gas engine in front and we sit right over it along with the engine noise. That's why we'd like a intercom to communicate.
  14. Golly. For those prices I’ll just talk to myself!🙂
