RE: Casino Route to Quartzsite

Rolling Hills casino in Corning CA. Take the Liberal Ave exit from I-5 S. They have a great buffet with a 50% discount on Tuesdays and Thursdays for 50+ seniors. Your choice of boondocking in the parking lot or they have an RV park.

RE: cant get fuel to filters after changing both on Cummins 8.1

First off the book basically lies. Best option is to plug the center hole and fill the filter with fuel before installing. Cycling the key on for about 20 seconds then off about 10 times may fill the filters. My last experience with this was not good as mine air locked and the only way I could get it to fire up was to pull the return line and plug it off while I cranked the engine as fuel would take the path of least resistance and just go from the tank and back through the return line and never enter the chambers. If it were my rig I would remove the filters fill them and try it. If it still did not start I would plug the return line. Be careful because if you crank the starter too long you will burn it up.

RE: Hot Water From Cold

Do you have an outside shower faucet? If so make sure the faucet is turned off at the knobs and not just at the head.

RE: Silverton, OR to Kelso, WA

Best/safest/easiest route: 214 to I5 at Woodburn then I5 to I205 then back to I5. You will hit a little congestion in Woodburn as they are building a new overpass at the 214/I5 junction but only slow for a mile or so.

RE: Need new satelite dome

I've been happy with my Winegard Trav'lr so far. X2. Did have to replace the LNB due to water in it but was an easy DYI fix.

RE: Oregon coast third week of October?

Prepare for 55 and rain and you will be fine. Bring jackets and rain gear and enjoy.

RE: Any resort anywhere with a walk-in pool?

Thousand Trail Las Vegas also has the steps plus a motorized sling system. You do not have to be a member to camp there.

RE: RVing with a newborn

Only waited until mom was ready to travel. Tented in those days but had a 22 ft sail boat so we put the baby in a collapsible bed/carrier and wedged him into the corner of the cabin and off we went. Don't think he grew up any worse for wear.

RE: Need advice for towing downhill....

Always go down in the lowest gear it took you to go up!! Stay off the brakes as much as possible. Once they get hot you will find stopping to be a real problem. If you start to smell them pull over and park asap and let them cool down. Good luck and be safe.

RE: Hillsboro, OR to Tillamook

Either 26 to 6 or 8 to 6 will be fine. Only thing with the 8 route is you have to go through Forest Grove at about 25mph. 6 into Tillamook is probably a better road than you will find 101 to be.

RE: Ford navigation system

I really like the system in my 2014 Explorer. Probably my only complaint and I know it is at least partially my fault is; I have problems hearing the voice directions and I don't seem to be able to turn it up enough to help.

RE: Thousand trails full hookups?

Most TT campgrounds lease sites out on a yearly basis. These sites are usually the full hookup sites. The TT Bend/Sunriver park is a good example, every full hookup site is leased out. We have been members for about 5 years now and I think that abut 90% of our stays have been at water/electric only sites.

RE: Couple annoyances you may know how to solve

If you are using one of those cheap water pressure regulators throw it away as they are actually just water restrictors. Purchase a Watts 263A-LF which is adjustable and has a pressure gauge on it. It will flow 4 to 4.5 gal per minute. I set mine for 55 pounds. Works great but not cheap.

RE: Battery over heats.

Most likely a shorted cell. Pull the battery and take it somewhere to have it load tested. Leaving it plugged in leaves you open to a battery explosion. Get it checked right away. Could be very dangerous.

RE: Still confused - affiliates?

Affiliate systems are just that, systems that are not owned by any one park system but allow members of several parks systems that are affiliated with that particular system to share parks. Usually these systems are open to members on a limited basis such as no holidays, stays of only 7 days, stay only two or three times a year, etc. Probably our favorite affiliate system is ROD since staying in ROD parks is free after your initial yearly dues. Next is Coast to Coast which charges $10 a night. Since most membership systems have parks in one area like the West for example, belonging to an affiliate system allows you to be able to camp in membership parks other than your own system all over the United States. The main thing to look for when purchasing a home park system is that you want to make sure they are members of the affiliate system you want to use also. A few years ago Thousand Trails dropped out of ROD and there were a lot of unhappy campers since if they wanted to camp under ROD they had to find another home park system to join that included ROD. Presently we belong to ROD, Coast to Coast, RPI, and AOR and use them a lot so we feel it is worthwhile. Just like the home park system if you are not going to use them then it is money down the drain.

RE: 2014 ford explorer

Mine is a key type system and ACC needs to be on in order to unlock the steering wheel. Not sure how the no key systems work but I would suspect they would use a relay to accomplish the same thing.
