RE: Big rig parks in seatle,wa. Area

A couple years ago I stayed at Lake Pleasant RV Park. I thought it was a nice park. I made the drive to downtown Seattle a few times from there..........I can't remember the exact distance or travel time, but I'm thinking it was around 30 minutes or so. Brian

Quartzsite Parking

Anyone know what they're charging for camping in the area just south of the big tent......on the west side on 95? What's the area called? As I remember there's a wooden building as you register just after turning into the area. I think I paid $40 a few years back for 2 weeks, just curious if it's the same or has changed. Thanks Brian

RE: Adjustable queen sized bed in our Motor home

Personally I think the mattress's they make now adays are some of the most uncomfortable things made. Go to a mattress store and look at them.........they're 2 feet thick or thicker and most are so firm they're like sleeping on concrete. Thicker doesn't make a mattress better. The best mattress I had in a motor home was in the first Southwind I bought, it was about 6 inches thick and was really comfortable.

RE: RV Parking at Devils Tower

I was just looking at the street view on Google Earth. Sign says "RV Parking Only", in the picture, you can see 3 RV's and 3 autos parked there.............I guess the auto's didn't see the sign. I've never been there, but just looking at the street view, the over flow parking area, just before the loop off to the side, with one way entry and exit, looks very tight for an RV. Brian

RE: Class A that is around $80,000 and is comfort to drive

Generally speaking Diesels, will be more comfortable driving then a gas unit. Also, the noise level is a lot less when climbing a grade. The one Diesel chasis that rides a little on the rought side is the Roadmaster R4R chassis. My suggestion, and I can't stress this enough is, test drive, test drive, and then test drive some more. Take them on various roads, freeway, country roads, rough roads, and grades. Oh ya, and make sure you test drive. Then you can decide. Don't just drive one around the block, you can't tell. For your price range, you can get some very nice used motor homes. Good Luck, and don't forget to test drive a lot. Brian

RE: Electric Heater, BE CAREFUL

I've not ever seen a ceramic heater go up in smoke, but I have seen several coil heaters smoke. What type was the one you had? Sometimes I have run 2 ceramic heaters on low heat, just to take the chill out of the air between furnace cycles. I don't know, it's in one of the trash bins here at Jackson Rancheria RV Park.

RE: Electric Heater, BE CAREFUL

Just curious, was that the type with electronic controls? (digital readout and all that stuff) It had a series of buttons you'd push to select temp, and on/of and oscillate, No LED readouts or anything fancy. I don't even remember where I bought it. Brian

Electric Heater, BE CAREFUL

It got down to 28 degrees here last night. I had my little electric heater set up to help with the propane heaters I have. I never run the thing unless I'm sitting here. Anyway, I turned it off a few hours ago........I still had it plugged in, but was turned off. I was just changing batteries in a flashlight, and heard something, and then looked over at the electric heater and it began to smoke. I unplugged it and took it outside. It actually melted some of the plastic. Again, it was off, just sitting there. Sooooooooo, please be careful. I usually don't even leave it plugged in when not in use...but today I did, and......who knows what might have happened it I was sitting here. Brian

New battery time, HELP !!

My house batteries (4-6V batteries) are a little over 3 years old. They don't hold a charge for very long anymore, so I guess it's time to change them. They are Interstate Deep Cycle batteries. Printed on the batteries are .........Interstate Deep Cycle Extreme GC2-XHD-UTL 122mins @75amp 232AH Looking for suggestions on batteries to replace them. I can do the work myself. New Interstates are a about $160.00. Thanks Brian

RE: Front Airbags not filling at idle??

Still don't know what the problem is, but I know the sequence of events I start the motor home, both rear and front gauges pop up to above 100 psi. I let it idle for a couple minutes, then fast idle (1000 rpm) for several minutes and pressure doesn't change. Shut off the engine and went outside and walked around the RV, but couldn't hear anything. Started back up and pressure went to over 100 psi. By the way, I initially thought just the fronts weren't airing up.....well, it's both front and rear bags. Anyway, released the parking brake and front pressure dropped to 65, rear dropped to about 90 and bags filled. Gauges indicated well over 100 psi with a minute or so.............so at that point everything is fine, however, the bags should fill prior to releasing the parking brake. When I say above 100 psi, my gauges have markings at 100 then 150.......and needles appear to be about midway. Called the shop I use and taking it in next week. Any ideas? Thanks........and a Merry Christmas. Brian

RE: Direct tv

I was out on the road recently and had a TV problem. Called Direct and they did some trouble shooting over the phone and then said I needed a tech to come out. Said it would be $49 or I could sign up for a monthly fee, which I think is around $7.00 and then their wouldn't be any charge for the service call. Tech came out the next day..............replaced, I think it's called swim unit and power supply and changed some connector ends and got everything up and working. One thing they're not allowed to do, is to go up on the roof. My swim unit was on the roof, so he gave me a new one and I went up and changed it...took about 5 minute, was easy. He would not leave, till he completely checked everything, including a complete shut down and restart.........definitely wanted to make sure there were no problems. I was very satisfied with the service. Brian

RE: I'd like some clarity on the California towing speed limit

I live in Ca and usually just get in the right lane and set the cruise at 58mph.........that seems to be about right for traffic that is cruising in that lane. Even thought the speed limit is 55 mph when towing, it's very common to see trucks doing 65mph. I just drove from Phoenix to Ca across the desert......and since the speed limit is higher, I set the cruise at 62mph. I have a Silver Leaf Display that gives me instantaneous mpg readout..........and I don't see much difference in between 58 and 62. My biggest complaint with other drives is they don't know how to merge into traffic. Like one of the posters above........some think they have the right away, and don't even look to merge and will do so at a slow speed. It's not so much who has the right away, it's what's safe. I once was in a similar situation as the above poster, couldn't move over and traffic was heavy........this car was merging and didn't even look, I finally honked my horn at her..........further down the road, she passed me, and showed me her IQ, sad part was, she had several kids in the car..........I thought, wow, great example for the kids.

RE: Diesel prices finally falling !!

I just drove from Bakersfield Ca to Modesto Ca and was surprised at the number of places selling diesel in the 2.90-2.99 range. The big truck stops were all in the $3.40-$3.49 range. Why are the big truck stops 50 cents higher?? Brian

RE: Front Airbags not filling at idle??

Well, after sitting for 3 days, started it up this morning, and the pressure popped right up to well above 100psi..........read the same as the rear tanks......and bags were inflated. The only thing I might have done different is...........I might not have used the switch to cump the air before leveling. When I parked it tonight, I' made sure I dumped the air, so I'll try tomorrow and see what happens. Thanks for all the replies. Brian

RE: I'd like some clarity on the California towing speed limit

55 in CA when towing. I was just in AZ and going across on the 8, only speed limit signs I saw said 75mph........does that apply to everyone? I cruised at 60mph.......that's fine for me, but was curious if you could tow at 75mph in AZ? Thanks Brian
