RE: Deming New Mexico to Albuquerque on hwy 26?

the 'Hatch Cutoff' is an EZ two-lane road that will save you miles and time. You will go thru the small town of Hatch just prior to the I-25 interchange but it's no big deal. we used to do it in our 40' class A towing a Jeep SUV.

RE: What are these called

Yeah I know that's why I said 12V which is the right jack size 12v comes in both + and - tip and various barrel sizes. best to check with the camera mfg for the specs.

RE: What are these called

you not only need the polarity of the plug (tip and shield) you need to know the barrel size (diameter). best bet is to contact the camera mfg.

RE: Jeep Wrangler odometer

In the old days, my YJ would tow easily behind the rv. Automatic tranny, all worked great. As I recall, the odometer did not roll when towed like this. Is it the same with later model wranglers? it is on our '03 Wrangler TJ and also on our '10 Jeep Liberty. both are automatics.

RE: Automatically connect windows 10 PC to open WiFi?

That would be a major security problem and asking for trouble but the OP said he always uses a VPN. wouldn't that offer protection?

RE: 12v? 24v? 36...48v????

i'm an old fart and have always tried to live by...keep it simple, stupid. the more wonky a system, the more headaches it will cause.

FYI For Those Who Cross Into Mexico @ Metamoros

In case you haven't seen this....4-Americans who crossed the southern border at Metamoros were kidnapped at gunpoint by suspected Mexican cartel members.

RE: ADCO Designer Series UV Hydro cover - any feedback?

no first hand experience but you may find it interesting if you check the archives here and on my impression was these covers do more damage than they prevent.

RE: Motorhome tires - recommendations.

on MH#2 (35' class A gasser) we used Goodyear (19" tires). over 15-yrs we had no issues. on MH#3 (40' class A gasser) we went with Michelin (22.5" tires). kept that MH for 7-yrs. one problem in year 2 traced back to an issue we had on a county road in AL. as we rounded a curve on a narrow 2-lane country road we encounted a massive hole in the pavement. not really a hole...half of the pavement wasn't there. the missing segment was 3-4' wide, 6" or so deep and about 20' long. i was able to slow down but not stop. the MH rocked to the right when the front wheels hit and then back to level just before the rear wheels hit. scared the you know what out of us. we had slowed from 20-25 mph to maybe 10-15 mph so damage was limited but I neglected to have the alignment checked. the next season i noticed some nasty sidewall scraping on the steer tires so I replaced those Michelins with Michelins. no issues for thr next 5-yrs.

RE: Pet Boarding when visiting Disneyland

when traveling our preferred kennel is PetSmart. Daycare and overnights are not expensive and, except on Sunday, they are open early and close late. not every PetSmart has the 'PetsHotel' but those that do are worth it.

RE: car warranty companies

Put your "Car Shield" premiums in a savings account, and use the money to do the repairs, when necessary. Like any other insurance company, they don't make money by paying out every claim they get. I would say "avoid". that's precisely what we did with our last two MHs. we took the purchase price of the offered "warranty" for our new MH in 2000 and put it in an account solely for maintenance and repairs. to that we added $X every month. we kept that MH for 15-yrs and at that time we had a significant balance in that account, a portion of which we used (+ $ saved for the purchase) to buy our current MH. my advice to the OP would be to do the same thing.

RE: Pet Boarding when visiting Disneyland

while we haven't taken Maggie the Wonder Beagle to Disney with us, when we're on the road and will be going somewhere where we can't take Maggie we will board her at a kennel, either for a full or partial day or for overnight. doggie daycare/boarding businesses are everywhere...even some vets offer that service. if Disney no longer offers that service it would seem your options are limited to boarding or not going to Disney. you might check the bulletin boardor office if you're staying at an RV Park to see if anyone in the park will dog-sit for you.

RE: Need a new toad-a sporty one

Our house is in the pine trees of So Oregon and we stay for six months in the M/H in a seniors park in Mesa, Az So I don't need a Jeep, I may buy back my Miata from the insurance company and repair it myself. The problem is getting it back to my shop in Or. Bob i sold a car in CA to a buyer in IL. the buyer hired an independent car carrier to transport the vehicle to him. if your Miata runs and can move under its own power that may be an option for you.

RE: Voting in South Dakota may change

as i understand , the gist is that only those who have real property in South Dakota, not just a mailing address, will be allowed to vote. Sort of, the gist is the address has to be a real residential address.... that would be real property. wonder why the changs?
