RE: Is anyone making small (<30') Class A diesels?

Our friends just purchased a Winnebago Via. It is 25-26 feet long. They are very impressed with it. Happy Travels!

RE: how far to drive every day

I love reading threads like this. When we were both working we drove about 10 hours a day just so that we could get to our destination. Then we relaxed. Now we are retired and drive about 6 hours a day. Also, we both drive so we don't get too tired. We stop about every two hours to stretch our legs and walk the dog.

RE: Kansas City Question

Thank you, everyone! DH is not keen on going through the shops so we will make a quick stop in Hamilton. I just want to SEE it. May return with the girlfriends someday!

Kansas City Question

We will be traveling north from Joplin, MO, on a Thursday morning in late July. We'll stop at Hamilton, MO so that I can look at the quilt shops. Plan on driving north on IH 49 and then taking IH 435 to IH 35. Any problems or major construction snags?

RE: Handy Hints, Gadgets, Products & Gizmos

I always thought this thread would make a great "sticky." I have asked a couple of times but the moderators didn't agree. I didn't know it was on Pinterest!

RE: With the Internet how do you plan you trip?

I still use my 2011 MS Streets and Trips to plan. I then look online for updated lists of campgrounds and RV parks along the route. I also use Google Maps although it isn't ass user friendly (to me) as MS S&T.

RE: Valve extentions

We are looking at TPMS for our 26 foot Ford-450 Class C. Would a TPMS work with these valve systems? Thanks

RE: crock pot cooking

Thanks, DutchmenSport! I wasn't sure if the Crockpot would run on high with the inverter. I will have to try this! I never knew you could use the Crockpot with an inverter!

RE: one week out

I keep a list of items that we keep in the RV and I go through it before a trip (paper plates, TP, towels, utensils, trash bags, etc.) to see what needs to be replaced. I add those items to my shopping list. I have another long list of items to pack from the house (cameras, clothing, coats, dog food, people food, etc.). I use that running list for about a week before we leave and in the morning of the trip. "Purse" is on that list because at the start of one trip I forgot it and we had to drive back home which was 40 miles away. Husband was not happy. I cross off the items that are packed and circle the important ones.

RE: Dometic refrigerator at higher altitudes

So I was telling my husband that you experienced the same problem that we did. We started wondering if there actually IS a solution. Then I did a Google search. Apparently Norcold has the same problem. I found a thread on another RV forum about this and on page 2 of this post the original poster found a solution. (I hope that it is okay to post a link from another RV forum) We will try this the next time we are at higher elevations. From my Google search I found that the problem is a bit more widespread than originally thought. I hope this may help you.

RE: Dometic refrigerator at higher altitudes

We camped in the Grand Mesa at 10,000 feet. Our 2016 Forest River Sunseeker Dometic refrigerator did the same thing. We dug out the manual and it said that when camping above 5,000 feet we should have electrical hookups! This is our 4th RV and we had previously camped on the Mesa and other places in Colorado at 10,000 feet and never experienced this. Our dealer said that the manufacturers are "making different products" these days. This was also very disappointing to us. The propane refrigerator did come back on but would frequently go back out. We have a "Check light" feature on it and had to keep an eye on it.

RE: Rear bedroom slide-out mattresses

We also have a Sunseeker (GTS 2430) and we also have the wedge mattress. At home we have a sleep number mattress and keep both sides at 100. Yes, we like our mattress firm! The RV mattress does feel firmer than our home sleep number. Not sure where to find one softer. Maybe a pillow top?

RE: Summer 2017 - Trip Suggestions

We lived in the Austin area for 15 years. You could drive to Gunnison, Buena Vista and Leadville, Colorado, in 2.5 days. We love those areas. Always stay in NFS campgrounds. Happy Trails!

RE: Sunseeker 2400W. 25' 1 SO Mercedes

We have a Sunseeker 2430 GTS on a Ford 450. We are very happy with it. There is quite a bit of information on the Forest River Forums

RE: Best way to find water?

I usually find an RV Park or Campground nearby. Then I call and ask them if they have water and a dump and how much it costs. It is usually $10.00 for a dump and fill.
