RE: Canadian question about road laws and Class A motorhome

I follow car speed limit signs when operating my RV anywhere in the U.S. Also on your way back to Canada please stop in L.A. and pick up Justin Beiber, us citizens of the U.S.A. are tired of his drunk driving and disrespecting other laws in the U.S.A. Thank You!

RE: tires

For your info there is only 2 manufactures who build a true soft rubber tires made for RV applications Michelin and Goodyear! All other tires are not RV tires they are hard rubber truck tires! As Paul Harvey would say "Now you know the rest of the story"! Good Luck to you in whatever you decide to buy.

RE: Arizona State parks

You can hunt coyotes in AZ. Lots of folks in my town do the coyote hunt. Look up the coyote hunting club, Southwest Predator Junkies. I didn't know this! I was staying at a RV Resort (Beachcomber) on the Island at Lake Havasu City, AZ. We were having a coyote problem and a game warden came out and gave us a flier, telling us how to avoid coyotes. I built a coyote shaker that actually works. The game warden told us not to harm the coyotes and said they were protected?

RE: length to wheel base ratio

I respect all of you, but your getting to technical for my pea brain! I just get in my Class A with a smile and just drive. Before I retired (truckdriver) I had to deal with bridge weights for any State that I drove in. Now life is simple for me just get in and drive! X2 - I hope some carpet walker did the math on ours before I bought it :) PS - go fast over bridges you are too heavy for - doesn't work for low clearances. Thanks, Mile High!

RE: Why did my coach batteries die?

I'm currently having battery problems myself. I bought a new Gel Cell battery (Chassis Battery) and it won't stay charged? My son told me that Gel Cell batteries are good but you have to use them a lot or you will have charging problems.

RE: Mobile internet

Sly, the best phone coverage company providers in the Southwest (Tri State, AZ., CA., NV.) for phone coverage is Verizon. Especially, in Western AZ.

RE: Registration Fees

Terry, I became a Partner in Seattle's Light rail (not by choice and I don't live in Seattle) the WA. State Legislature passed a back room deal to charge motorhomes $75.00 on there license tab renewal fees to fund light rail in Seattle. This fee is not charged to travel trailers or 5th wheels! My tabs were $30.00 for a short time until these back room deals took over. The other back room deal was another $30.00 Highway weight fee. I can't remember the total renewal fee it was between $150.00 and $175.00 per year for me. The WA. State Legislature can't stay within the reins of financial responsibilities so they have raised all license fees, you must change your license plates every 7 years regardless of condition, and the WA. State Patrol was told to write as many citations as possible to help out with the money short fall.

RE: Arizona State parks

Sly, there is a fee to stay at AZ. State Parks. I've stayed at two AZ. State Parks, Cattail Cove S.P. South of Lake Havasu City, AZ. and River Island S.P. on the Parker Strip. Both are very nice and you can stay for 2 weeks. The AZ. BLM (Bureau of Land Management) has several free campsites I only know of two! One is North of Lake Havasu City, AZ. (up on top of the hill on the Eastside of HWY. #395) where all the Burro's hang out. You can get your free permit at the BLM Office in LHC. and the other free campsite is Dome Rock in Quartzsite, AZ. Dome Rock is on the road that goes past the garbage dump on the left side. La Poza, a BLM pay site is 1 my South of Quartzsite on Hwy #395, the BLM charged me $40.00 for 2 weeks or $200.00 for the winter season. Good Luck! And Sly, if you travel with pets in AZ. be aware of the coyotes they are very aggressive have been known to snatch small dogs while walking on leash's. And they are a protected species by law in AZ. you don't want to harm or harass them. You can get free Dome Rock permits at La Poza, free permits are for 30 days only then you have to move to the next free site.

RE: Class A Tire Blow and Roll-over

When I was a very young man United Parcel Service put me thru there driving school. And, I went thru a driving school while working for Food Services of America (Smith System Driving School), both of these schools recommend if you have a blow out to take your foot off the throttle pedal hold the steering very firmly and try to get off the roadway! Both schools said not to apply pressure to your brakes when this happens. I drove over the road 44-1/4 years and logged 4 million miles and this practice worked for me a time or two!

RE: Used DP, Miles vs Years

You should be able to get all of the information you need by asking if the seller has COMPLETE service records on the coach. Without any records, you have no way of knowing when or if any service was done on a regular basis. Some full timers put very little mileage on their rig but they have used the systems and interior 24/7/365 and the exterior has been exposed to the elements 24/7/365. Low mileage does not guaranty low usage. You can also find coaches with higher mileage that have only been lived in for a few months at a time. It just depends on how the people traveled. Again, COMPLETE service records will answer your questions. X-2, this is very important! You will wear out the inside of a DP before the engine needs rebuild. A well maintained DP should run over one million miles on the speedo!

RE: Good GPS for Class A motorhome

I use Map Quest on my phone. No extra cost. Down loaded the app. Between that and RVPARKY i had a great trip. Don't need a screen, it lets you know ahead of time what lane to be in and what turns to make. I did purchase a external speaker so i could hear it while laying on my dash. Drove over 6K last winter and did not go out of my way by 1/4 mile. X-2

RE: gun laws in New York

I live in Washington State and I have a concealed weapons permit. Legally it is unlawful for me to carry my handgun thru Oregon and California so when I'm traveling to AZ. I go thru Idaho, Utah and Nev. That way I'm legal and don't get to spend any money in Ore. or California when traveling.

RE: No turning back... need advise moving forward

www.Demartinirv.com (there out of Sacramento) has two used D.P. that you described and wanted 2004, 70,000 miles, 38', silver and black, there asking $78,000.00 and a 2011, 9,000 miles, 40', silver, black and white and there asking $169,000.00 We travel with 2 dogs and a parrot with no problems! We had a cat we traveled with but it died of old age several years ago. When we travel we have the post office hold our mail until we get to our destination then we have it forwarded. My meds, (Chimo), we have delivered thru CVS Pharmacy, I take enough with me to get to our destination then have them send it to my oncologist office (it costs me $12,000.00 per month). We pay our bills online with a Apple I-Pad we never had any problems. I recommend a Roadmaster Towing system when towing your jeep. My tow bar is 17 years old and is still in near new condition preforming just fine! Good Luck, John
