RE: Buying in CA and registering in AZ - Taxes?

The dealer in California did not collect sales tax on my motor home and he had me sign a paper that I took deliver at state line, however I did not, he let me drive it off his lot and saved me the deliver fee and him the hassle. Not saying it wasn't done...in fact, I would lean towards it being done a lot...however, the OP asked a specific question and it was answered. Notice you said you SIGNED a paper that you took delivery at the State Line, yet you did not. IF the Ca folks came after the dealer, guess who would be left holding the bag?...Not trying to be the morality police here, but didn't it bother you to sign a document you knew was not true? The dealer put his license at risk and you lowered your standards a bit...just sayin......Dennis

RE: Gray water dump

RayChez, regardless of what you were 'told' by someone on the phone, I've personally stayed AT Collins Lake and saw with my own EYES the many hoses from permanent, semi permanent and RVers alike draining into the bushes. It was because of this practice that I personally asked the RANGERS why, and they said they allowed and encouraged folks to run their water on the ground. Maybe it's because of the continual water shortage in Ca...don't know. All I know is what I posted. IMHO, I trust what someone has personally seen over what some unknown tells me on the phone...too many desk clerks that have never been camping in their life......just sayin....Dennis

RE: extended warranty

5K put it in the bank when it breaks you,ll know its covered ,these companies are not worth the paper there written on , do a lot of soul searching before you shell out 5K . they stay in business a couple years then disapeer. Good advice...that way if your engine or tranny go south on you, you'll only be out $20,000 instead of $25,000.....:S. The OP is asking about WW, not whether it's a good deal or not. What works for one may not work for the other....that said, we have our current policy with WW and Jeff Shelton, owner is great to work with. He walked us through several policies they offered to ensure we got the protection we were looking for at a reasonable price. IMHO, $5k is a fair price for the peace of mind the warranty gives you. They replaced my Norcold cooling unit two years ago right after I got the policy. No questions asked and paid promptly.....Dennis

RE: How do YOU start your campfire?

I learned this from watching my neighbor..... 1. Get the greenest wood you can find. Pressure treated works well. 2. Place #1 in a big pile on the ground. Use of a firepit is an option. 3. Pour 1 to 1 1/2 bottles of charcoal lighter fluid on the wood. 4. Throw on match. 5. Since the wood is green it won't light just smoke to the heavens. 6. Return with a gallon jug of gasoline. Regular or premium, it doesn't matter. 7. Pour gas on smouldering mess hoping it'll explode into a raging inferno. 8. Bitter because it didn't light, but unfazed in their quest...add another match. 9. Sit back on your 5 gallon buckets and watch the flames soar from the burning fuel. 10. Enjoy the fire until the fuel burns off then go inside, close all your windows and let the smouldering mess smoke out everyone else in the campground. Life is sweet when you camp in the woods......:B.....Dennis

RE: Who Double Tows With Your Motorhome

Because a "housecar" is NOT a passenger vehicle, CVC Section 465: /snip/ The term “passenger vehicle” shall include a housecar. :h:h:h....which part was missed????.....:W......Dennis

RE: Overweight Toad?

Sounds like a lot of folks on here know more about towing and laws of physics than any of them dumb old engineers anyway, so go for it. If you're stopped or have an accident, just tell 'em the guys on RV.net said it was ok....that should work......Dennis

RE: Gray water dump

California Health & Safety Code Defininition of Graywater 17922.12. (a) For the purposes of this section, "graywater" means untreated wastewater that has not been contaminated by any toilet discharge, has not been affected by infectious, contaminated, or unhealthy bodily wastes, and does not present a threat from contamination by unhealthful processing, manufacturing, or operating wastes. "Graywater" includes wastewater from bathtubs, showers, bathroom washbasins, clothes washing machines, and laundry tubs, but does not include wastewater from kitchen sinks or dishwashers. On my coach the dishwater and shower go into the gray water tank. So NO dumping in California and if you do, you will be fined. Visit Collins Lake campground and you'll be surprised that they encourage you to run your grey water onto the ground surrounding the lake.....a side note is their lake is regularly tested and is consistently found to be one of the cleanest in the area.....there are many places in California where it's permissible to dump your grey water, so please refrain from posting unreliable and/or unsubstantiated statements....thanks....Dennis

RE: Overweight Toad?

Work the numbers: 1. GCWR minus tow vehicle's actual weight. 2. Hitch capacity. 3. Coach tow rating. 4. Chassis maker's tow rating. REMEMBER it's the LESSER of all of these that determines safety.

RE: Overweight Toad?

Just chiming in here...to the OP...it's NOT simply " I have a hard time seeing that a rolling vehicle would subject the hitch and frame to huge acceleration forces." that will bite you in the rear.... It's the dolt that cuts you off so you have to slam on the brakes....it's the blowout on the dolly that will throw you into a spin..maybe some bad weather or high winds....it's the myriad of 'other' unknown factors that might be thrown at you in your journey that will cause you to regret your decision to over tow....just sayin.....Dennis

RE: Who Double Tows With Your Motorhome

mssmith...the way I interpret cvc 21715(a) is it's only legal to tow a second vehicle on a dolly. I.E. Truck, dolly, toad....not double tow as the OP is suggesting. My recommendation to the OP is to simply drive his rig into California and see how long before he gets stopped and ticketed. It shouldn't take too long...solves two issues....answers the OP's question and puts some ready cash into California coffers.....that helps my retirement fund......:W.....Dennis

RE: leak in the slide out.

It CAN be done by yourself, but I RECOMMEND at least two people. There are directions on the internet. Familiarize yourself with your system before you start and know your limitations.....finally, get a mobile tech instead of a dealer should you decide it's over your head.....Dennis

RE: Gray water dump

In certain State and County campgrounds in CALIFORNIA, which probably has the most restrictions of any State in the Union, dumping your grey water is not only allowed, it's encouraged. For those stating it's ILLEGAL, I say, I'm from Missouri, Show me.....and I don't think any RVr generates 250-400 Gallons per DAY...so that doesn't apply. As posted above, If it's not prohibited by the CG rules, I don't have an issue with letting it trickle in the bushes...if that makes me insane, call the white coat folks......:W....Dennis

RE: Ball bearings!!

You might have her call Art Oberdorf in Annapolis. He's a mobile RV tech and will come to her....he's reasonable and seems to know what he's doing..IMHO it's worth a call @ 410-353-0684 ..Dennis

RE: Buying in CA and registering in AZ - Taxes?

The California dealer, by law, must collect California taxes. If buying from a private party, it's up to you to pay the taxes. Any taxes paid in California will be a credit towards any due in Arizona...at least this was how it was three years ago. My California dealers license has expired......Dennis
