RE: Window Leak - New 2015 Forest River Forester 2861DS

I would place a call to Forest River. By the way, there is a very information and active Forest River Forum . It is moderated by Forest River owners, not by the company. They do have some reps from the company who occasionally post there.

RE: Interstates safer than "Blue Highways?"

I wish this forum had a "Like" button and that I could hit it for each one of these answers to my post!!!

RE: cooling the fridge in a hurry

I also recommend freezing water bottles or "blue ice packs." Load as many as you can to keep the refrig cool. Then transfer them to the freezer if you have room. Keep frozen bottles in the refrig. When cool enough use the water (we use our filtered water from home) for drinking and for coffee.

RE: Question about Forest River Forester - fresh water valve

We have a Sunseeker Class C by Forest River and our water intake is at the back of the rig. I have found lots of valuable info at The Forest River Forums. The forums are not actually sponsored by Forest River but by those who own Forest River RV's. Hope this helps you.

Interstates safer than "Blue Highways?"

We are now retired and I have our summer trip to Colorado planned. We share the driving. I want to travel the back roads and blue highways. I want to take our time. The Interstates make me nervous and they are boring. DH wants to travel the Interstates as much as possible because he feels they are safer. He doesn't like to have to slow down and stop for traffic lights in small towns when he drives. Feels that blue highways are more prone to head-on collisions. What do you think?

RE: Visiting camgrounds

We have asked for permission to drive through and look at many public campgrounds (State Parks, COE, NFS, etc.) We have never been asked for a fee and have always been made to feel welcome.

RE: Question about generator and AC

I believe that our AC unit takes 5 minutes to restart once it is powered off. Could it be that you turned it back on before a 5 minute period of time?

Oregon/California coast--best time of year?

A few years back we were dreaming about taking a trip down the Oregon/California coast. I remember reading that the best views would be to travel south. There were also mentions of the best time of year. I think the early spring but now I can't remember for sure. Now that we have retired and have more time we are thinking about making this trip in 2017. Can someone suggest the best time of year for this trip? Thanks!

RE: Boondocking in bear country?

We camped at a NFS campground in Colorado (Lake Irwin) a few years back. A bear was in the campground at dusk. He found some food left on a table and created quite a mess. He then opened the upper window of a truck camper and helped himself to a package of Oreos. About 2-3 hours later we were drifting off to sleep in our class B van and we felt a big push against the side of the unit. Kind of freaked us out. We stayed inside. In the morning we looked at our campsite and the only thing amiss was the huge tears in our vinyl tablecloth on the picnic table. Can you say "Bear Claw?" So just be sure to pack your food items away from any windows and maybe inside some boxes.

RE: Leveling/AC Question

Thank you!

Leveling/AC Question

New owner of a Forest River Sunseeker Class C with a Dometic rooftop AC. Former owners of a Class B with a window-type AC unit in the rear. When running that AC we needed to be level. Have searched the Internet and cannot find the answer to this question: Does the Class C need to be level when just running the AC? We have been working in the new RV, organizing things. We have the automatic levelers and not sure if we need to level the rig just to run the AC. Any comments appreciated. Thanks!

RE: Kudos to GoodSam ERS

Good to see a positive review for GS roadside assistance, a service which has rescued us four times!

RE: What do you do about dirty clothes?

I have two foldable laundry hampers. Store in the shower. Take them out when showering. But I think I only paid $3.00 for them at Target.

RE: Kay Bailey Hutchinson Convention Center, Dallas, TX

You may wish to look into Plantation Place Rv Park. It is located just east of Dallas in the Mesquite/Sunnyvale area.

RE: Handy Hints, Gadgets, Products & Gizmos

We have moved up from a Class B into a new Class C. I am looking for storage ideas and found this old (popular) thread that I started ten years ago! Great ideas!

RE: Laptop mapping software

I still use my Streets and Trips 2011. I also use Google maps while at home planning a trip to make sure the roads are okay. We also have a Garmin NUVI and our phones. I sure wish that MS still made S&T available! I would also be interested in learning if there are any other laptop programs that are user friendly.
