    I need a route building program for PC

    Thank you for that. When I ran basecamp before I had the topo maps installed. Back then, the price was $99. Funny the price didn't change after five or six years. Still, in the back of my mind, something was wrong when I reinstalled it after I replaced my computer. I vaguely remember being...

    I need a route building program for PC

    I downloaded basecamp last night. Following the link in the program got me to the topo maps for sale. I have a vague memory of it needing to see my Garmin device. That wasn't the case last night. I'm hoping that doesn't pop up when I buy the topo part. I already have an account that shows I...

    I need a route building program for PC

    I used basecamp for years. It was exactly what I needed. I built a new computer and when i load it, it needs to see the "garmin" gps to finish set up. My Garmin was stolen years ago. If I did have it, all I could find was on a monthly subscription. My biggest reason here is being able to create...

    I need a route building program for PC

    As the title says, I need a stand alone mapping program. I have Gaia but its web based and while it works for mapping and sending to my Ipad, it has issues sending a GPX file I created to my PC. Here's what I need to do, create a route and put the GPX file into my PC and modify one of my...

    Roof coating on new plywood

    Planning out the roof on my new build. I would like to use the rubberized roof coating for a variety of reasons. What I see is EPDM should be the way to go. Spreads on nicely, self leveling, reflects heat, flex's and is water proof. Everything I want. The problem is this, all of the manufactures...

    Trailer Park Brake solved with pictures

    I know people have successfully hooked them up but all I found after months of research was people asking about it, others trying things but never saying if it worked. Odds are the info is buried in someone’s build thread. So here we go. Handle. I chose an Orscheln Lever, Part number 02182700...

    M100 aftermarket axle for Toyota bolt pattern

    I found when ordering the axles, I specify spring over or under (SOA, SUA). They weld on the perches. The perches tend to be 1.5 inch's wide. On my new build, I'm running 1978 CJ7 rear springs with 2" lift. 1.5 inch wide and the spring rate I wanted.

    M100 aftermarket axle for Toyota bolt pattern

    I got a dexter axle for mine. 3500#, electric brakes and a park brake. $375 complete, made to my dimensions, ordered from my local trailer shop. If your going to use the 4runner rims, they will hit the hub assy (have read where people had this issue). Now your running an adapter to space it out...

    New trailer build question about skinning sides.

    My new build is going to be very similar to yours. My sides are going to be aluminum sheet bonded with silkaflex (don't remember the number). There are a few different structural adhesives. The nice thing is most of the adhesives are flexible. Do a google search on it. I have used it on a floor...

    The truth about most RV's.

    This has been an entertaining read. I can give another perspective. When my dealership decided to work on medium duty trucks and motorhomes in the early 90's, I got a good feel for just how horrifying they were. We were GM so most all were GM chassis. Most of the vehicles I got stuck working...

    Mapping program to use on my Imac

    I have been using Basecamp with the topo add-on for what seems like forever. I would plot my route, set my way-points separate them into folders and transfer them over to whatever GPS I'm currently using. I used to have a Garmin Nuvi but, it was stolen a while ago and now I use my ipad with Gaia...

    Megellan trx7 or other gps?

    HI Steve It was a pleasure to speak with you even though it was brief. I don't want to turn this into something past the OP's question, ill send you an e-mail to cover these things. As I posted, I just covered a few basics. In answer to your rebooting due to a power supply issue, I unplugged...

    Megellan trx7 or other gps?

    Ive owned one for about a year. I was looking for a mid to large screen "off road" dedicated GPS. Ive owned everything from handhelds to tablets and used most of the software out there. I use GPS regularly on my trips and have done so for a couple of decades. Here's my impression so far. I saw...
