RE: How can my mother get into our motorhome?

Depends on how disabled she is. I know when I fell breaking my hip, pelvis etc I was able to sit down on the steps and go up them backwards one step at a time. Once inside my wife would help me to stand. Like you said once inside I could hold onto furniture and move about.

Does anyone know if it is ok to overnight at the Home Depot in Tehachapi CA?

RE: How should I fix this?

Once you get it dried out and a new vent cap seal the whole unit to the roof with Eternabond tape.

RE: Error message ONAN model HDKAH

Looks like it has something to do with the auto start feature. I did find this Energy Command 30

RE: USPS Forwarding Problems

Not sure you have much recourse. We experienced (are experiencing) much the same problem. We put in our mail forwarding request with start and stop dates way in advance of our winter trip to Yuma AZ. My wife uses mail order prescriptions which are sent automatically. We kept waiting but they never arrived. When we went to the Yuma post office to follow up we found a large pile of mail there that had never been delivered. Their comment was " You need to stop by and let us know you are here" Gee I thought that was what the date on mail forwarding is for. Been here since September and have only received one magazine. Don't know who is reading our subscriptions but it isn't us.

RE: Cleaning the outside

Awesome cleaner from the dollar store. Mix it with water in a 5 gallon bucket,spray on straight on stubborn stains. Will clean almost anything and it is cheap.

RE: $500 fine San Antonio

Wonder if they are having a problem like Portland Oregon where they have large numbers of derelict RV's with people living in them all over the city.

RE: What ladder do you keep in motorhome

I found one of these by the dumpster last year. Works great. There is a reason it was in the dumpster. Had one that I that I laid under my motorhome, the wind blew sand into the hinges and I never could get it to open or collapse correctly again. Finally tossed it. Also never felt safe on it as it did not seem very sturdy,

RE: What ladder do you keep in motorhome

I carry a little Giant ladder fits in storage of our 5er. Extends to 15ft so easy to get on roof of RV and Very sturdy. X2 Little Giants are a bit on the heavy side but you don't have to worry about it collapsing on you.

RE: Would you consider a Class C that was used to tow?

Not a deal breaker for me. I would probably have it serviced, maybe change the transmission fluid. Have the brakes checked and change the brake fluid and hit the road. If you are really worried have the transmission fluid and engine oil analyzed.

RE: Leaving RV in AZ in summer?

WOW !! I am glad I dont have the problems that rocmoc mentioned.. I have 9 Park Models, two TT, 40 ft 5th w here in Yuma as rentals and I dont have those problems. Maybe because its a dry heat. Yeah right. LOL Yeah the Tucson region gets can get a LOT rain during monsoon season compared to Yuma. rocmoc n AZ When we bought our park model in Yuma the neighbor told us they get about three inches of rain her at a time. That means one drop every three inches.

RE: Leaving RV in AZ in summer?

Don't think I would leave it plugged in with the air on. We have a park model in Yuma which we close up and turn off the power. I purchased several 5 gallon buckets at Home Depot with lids. I cut about 1/2 of the lids out and, fill them with water to keep a little humidity in the air. I also add a little cooking oil to the drain traps to keep the water from evaporating. So far that has worked fine for us.

RE: Where to store sewage hose on a class A

On my coach the propane tank is in a semi open bay behind an exterior access door. I purchased a sewer hose tube with screw on lid from Camping World and mounted it inside the propane tank storage area. Works great since that door is right next to the wet bay on my coach.

RE: Do Thousand Trails/Encore parks RV age discriminate?

Thousand trails is a membership park. If you are a member in good standing they have let you in. In fact if you drive through some of the parks near large cities you will find that many lower income people unable to afford today's rents lease permanet sites in TT parks and some live in some rather unsightly rigs.

RE: What does the future hold for 55+ park model communities?

I think DutchmenSport has it pegged. Our own experience follows this pretty well. We started RV'ing in the 70s on weekends, as the kids older and vacations got longer we traveled further. When I retired we traveled longer and further. Now just getting the motorhome ready to go is a hard job. Last year we purchased a lot and park model in Yuma and are settled in for the Winter. We talk about doing one more cross country trip but somehow it just does not seem worth the effort. While talking to a realtor it was mentioned that most of the park models change hands on an average every 10 years.

RE: Thousand Trails-Vacancy Question

Making a reservation is not all that bad. I just use their web site on the internet. Of course the level of membership you have makes a difference as to how far ahead you can make reservations. My biggest gripe is that since you can't reserve a particular site the site you get may not be the best. Since ELS purchased TT they have turned many of the parks into what for a better words might be called homeless camps. They lease sites out long term and even if empty are not available. Last park I went to even had no trespassing signs posted on some of the sites. Naturally these are the best sites and you get the leftovers. Our last trip we stayed at TT Soledad Canyon and it took me three tries to find a site with even a working 30 amp service.

RE: Aluminum vs. Fiberglass Siding

I have never owned an aluminum sided RV that did not eventually develop pinholes from electrolysis somewhere.

RE: Fridge on gas or electric

If this is an automatic fridge it would only use gas if it did not sense available power, Either the power dropped or something in your electrical portion is not working correctly such as a blown fuse or defective circuit board.

RE: Holiday Rambler

Trailing arm problems were with the four air bag models. The Endeavor is an eight air bag model so no problem there.
