RE: Question About "Walk-up" Camp Sites

It probably will depend on how soon before the weekend that you will arrive. I would say maybe Wednesday or Thursday at least. But not sure...depends on the popularity of the campground. Also, keep checking because often people will cancel a couple of days before so there may be some availability. But maybe not. Good luck and safe travels!

RE: Interstate 80/Chicago by-pass

Don't take US 30...it is stop and go and very frustrating. When traveling from Texas to Michigan we have taken a short-cut from IH-57 to IH-65 and that helps us but it would be out of your way. I know that there are times that traveling on IH-80 straight through are better, but I don't know what they are. Maybe early Sunday morning or mid-day during the week?

RE: What happened to Handbasket

I have wondered about him myself. I sent him a PM.

Thanks again to everyone. We are still planning...

RE: Parking Class B's

We owned a 21 foot Class B and it was my daily driver for 14 years. I can't remember ever having a parking issue (except for parking garages where I was too high). We now have a 25.9 foot Class C and we just returned from a 3 week trip. Never had any issues with parking it at stores, cafes, etc.

RE: Interstate 20 and 65 instead of Interstate 30 and 40?

Thanks to everyone. How about if we took Highway 69 north from Tuscaloosa then east and hooked back up on IH 65 near dodge City? We could avoid Birmingham all together. Is this too twisty-turny-hilly? We will be in a hurry. That may give us a chance to see the real Alabama?

Interstate 20 and 65 instead of Interstate 30 and 40?

We live near Corsicana, Texas. Planning an October trip up to visit family near Columbus, Ohio. Have traveled Interstate 40 in Arkansas between Little Rock and Memphis and there were so many trucks and construction zones. And we were in our car, not the RV. So don't want to go that way. It's a little farther but we were thinking about driving on Interstate 20 and then north on Interstate 65, then on IH 75. Any problems with these last few interstates that any of you know about?

RE: Interstates safer than "Blue Highways?"TRIP UPDATE

Trip Update: Just returned from 3 week trip to Colorado. We found that the trucks using Interstates 20 and 40 drove us crazy. We wanted to drive at the slower speeds and they (of course) kept passing us. So we opted for the secondary highways and were very happy. YES! We saw much more than on the Interstates. Of course we had to drive slower but were in no hurry to get home. Thanks again to everyone who posted!

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: 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.

Thanks, everyone! Looks like we still have some "discussing" to do!!! I do appreciate all of your insights.

Interstates safer than "Blue Highways?"TRIP UPDATE

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!
