I'm writing a blog on our "adventure" -- you can read it by going to travelblog.org and searching on "Tellico".  We're leaving on May 29, and driving through Sault Ste Marie, then across Canada on the Trans-Canada Highway and the Alaska Highway.  We'll spend 4-6 weeks in Alaska and return to Canada to spend a couple of weeks driving up the Dempster Highway to the Arctic Ocean.  After that, we'll drive through British Columbia to the Washington and Oregon coasts, hit Yosemite, and head east to Tennessee, hoping to be home by Halloween. 

I welcome suggestions and ideas!

I recently looked at the forum page for Phoenix Cruisers for Sale by Members and was surprised to see the coach I purchased in February still listed for sale. Also, the text is yellow, virtually unreadable unless you highlight it.
Hopefully the webmaster will read this post and correct the situation. Glad to see that our website is getting some attention and a makeover. I am sure the issues raised by the membership will be corrected by the webmaster give the time and opportunity to do so.

Tips and Tricks / Re: Hand-Held Bug Zapper, Fun & Effective

Read the DD battery suggestion on several Harbor Freight blogs/sites.  Not sure as to why, but would guess that the components may be different in the two designs.    Your Aldi bug zapper is likely a better quality model.  When one of our HF zappers takes early retirement I'll take it apart to try and get an idea as to how it was made.  Something along the lines of a transistor, transformer, capacitor, and resistor.  Off the shelf items that the builder recognized would work; components unlikely to have been made for the purpose of building a zapper.  But what the hey, they're fun.  And effective.

Shout it out.  Spray "Shout" laundry stuff on it.  Roll it up and let it sit a while.  Unroll and wash. If that doesn't work try a solution of Oxi-Clean and water...or both.   Also, thanks for your reply to my question.
I will have to try those two products.  Thanks for the tip.

We just insured our PC, which we will be picking up on June 11. Our Insurance Agent looked at the options and the Progressive policy was the best for coverage and price. So, we went with Progressive for our new PC.

I did get a PM response from bside60 that had a similar problem referenced above.  He indicated he had to remove the dash to reach the inline fuse and could still barely get at it.  It was the fix in his case.  I still want to access the area behind the kick panel hoping that hard to get fuse is there.  Still no response from Dave at factory but will keep trying,

If Phoenix Cruiser is still using Carefree brand awnings then I believe the available materials are either vinyl or acrylic.  A single color is listed as, "Custom Acrylic Solid."

Thank you, sir.  I will give Barry H. a call.

I don't know the relationship Phoenix has with the supplier of their awnings, but somehow the awnings are color-coordinated with the color of the PC.  Nobody ever talks about it, not Phoenix to us, and not us to Phoenix.  It's one of those magical things that happens behind the scenes.

I don't know about the material choices, I never gave it a thought that there would be choices to consider.

Speaking about awnings in-general....When rolling up your awning, always make sure it has no leaves or sticks on it.

Trying my best closing a cleaned-off awning during a crazy wind & rain storm, a few wet leaves were blown back on and stuck to it.  The next day I opened the awning to find that the leaves stained the awning.  When we got home, I bleached and scrubbed, but those leaf outlines are there to stay.  So now I have the "autumn" theme printed on my gray striped awning.

Does anyone here have a method in removing leaf stains from the awning?

Suggestions:  If you buy the Bug Zapper from Harbor Freight purchase the model which uses the "D" batteries.  This design has a much better reputation than the Zappers using the smaller "AA" batteries.
Interesting comment.

All of ours are powered with two "AA" batteries and perform well for many months....surely a full season.  I wonder if "D" cell versions offer a more powerful "Zap".
