RE: Best route Monterey Bay to Tehacapi CA

Brian, take US101 South to Paso Robles then take CA46 all the way across to 99. Go South on 99 to CA58 east to Tehachapi....While on CA46 you might want to stop and visit the James Dean Monument. He was killed at the intersection of CA41 and CA 46...also, in Tehachapi visit the Tehachapi Loop....Dennis I agree with Dennis route. Brian if your going to stay in Tehachapi overnight I recommend the RV Park up by the airport! Can't remember the name? RV.Net member mssmith recommended it to me great place to stay nice and not expensive.

RE: Tow Bar Pins

I don't use pins on my unit! I bought 4 padlocks all keyed the same and I use then in place of the pins. I do not want to lose a pin or have anyone pull one out.

RE: No Trucks Allowed

You will be fine driving your motorhome on your road. Being a retired truckdriver my guess would be the sign is do to weight. Your RV is in the 20,000 lbs. range. My truck and trailer when I was driving weighed 105,000 lbs. way too much weight for a road like yours.

RE: When will RV Manufacturers be concerned with quality?

Great Rant! My response is never! Why, most of the major RV Manufacturers are more interest in output (taking over the largest share of the RV Market) instead of slowing down production and building them right. JMHO and I've been preaching this for years!

RE: Happy Camper or Frustrated Owner?

I'm a Happy Camper still Johnny as I was in your 2004 post! It's this website Johnny that provides knowledge from so many experienced RVers sharing there information and passing it on. You take the knowledge and let it empower you to make the best decision possible moving ahead! That way your not going into a situation blind! The only unknown "Pitfall" to me is buying a lemon new off the showroom floor! And every RV Manufacture builds a lemon now and then! Just Happy to be alive Johnny, just got out of the hospital this past weekend after suffering heart failure!

RE: A Chevy guy bought a Ford V-10, got any tips?

I've owned Ford V-10 Triton in a Fleetwood Motorhome I bought new in the 90's. When I owned my Ford V-10, I would shift the transmission to overdrive anytime that I reached the speed of 45 MPH except for steep hills. I climbed Snoqualmie Pass at 45 MPH with the overdrive in the off position and in 3rd gear. My hardest pull with my Ford Triton was coming out of Vantage going up the hill toward Rye Grass Pass with the outside temps 90* to 100*. I would just get in the slow lane in 3rd gear and gently head up the hill. I'm like you a Chevy Guy but, I got used to it. There was a lot of trouble in the late 90's with V-10 Tritons having problems with the spark plugs seating. I heard that got fixed in the 2000 models? That's when I switched back to Chevy. Good Luck and have fun in your new coach if you can get away to Eastern Washington this weekend it's been in the 70's there most of the week during the day.

RE: Los Algedones Mexico

Almost all the Doctors and Dentist in Los Algadones have been educated in the U.S.! My friends that go down there spend the night in Yuma, AZ. or Winterhaven, CA.

RE: New to Class A

Let me be the first one to welcome you to RV.Net! We travel South in the Winter to AZ. also we have a 36' Winnebago Adventurer (gasser) that I bought new 11 years ago and travel with 2 dogs a Red Standard Poodle and a West Highland Terrier (Westie) and a Yellow Naped Amazon Parrot. We also tow a Honda all 4 wheels down. We live in our coach comfortably we passed on the washer dryer combo because we couldn't fit enough clothes in them that we would like. I would assume that those units are larger now? Mustang 652 mentioned the top of the line gassers which are all good solid coaches! Good Luck in your search.

RE: Lake Havasu City RV Parks

I have never stayed there, but let's face it, some areas of the park needs to be cleaned up. Maybe the new rates will move some of the "squatters" out. I seriously doubt the rates will go to a $1000 a month. The amenities are just not worth that price. Lots of better places to stay. I hope your right about the rates! I got my info from the LHC News Hearld!

RE: Lake Havasu City RV Parks

Sounds like the State robbed "Peter" to pay "Paul"......get what you can cuz it ain't gonna last forever......rents are like anything else...it's what the market will bear...if they're too high, he'll have too many vacancies and "bingo" the State will be able to sell it again...IMHO, he's raised the rates to effect a "voluntary" eviction. Done many times in the past, especially if there are leases involved that weren't set aside by the auction.. Once the property is clean then he can start fresh or sell the land for a hotel, big box store or whatever the highest and best use of the land foretells.........Dennis Very good point Dennis! This guy owns the hotel (and leases the land from the State) that has the neon lights going across the top of it on the Island about a 1/4 mile before you get to the Islander RV Park. I know Jim Santiago wanted that lease because he owns outright the land that is in the old part of the Beachcomber just in front of the new part of the Beachcomber! It sounds like to me that Jim bid it up and dropped it on him! It will be interesting to see what happens? I'm not going to stay at the Beachcomber anymore when I go down there in the winter due to this guys attitude! Islander RV here I come!

Lake Havasu City RV Parks

I would like to hear opinions on the changing RV scene in Lake Havasu City, AZ. It came to my attention that there was a changing of the guard at the Beachcomber RV Resort? Jim Santiago was the lease holder there for many years. A State of Arizona lease auction happened recently in Kingman, AZ. and Jim was outbid by a person named Peter Patel. Peter won via bid a 38 year lease at 30.2 million dollars. Peter gave notice to everyone at the Beachcomber that there would be a 100% rate increase in rent and it's pay up or vacate within 10 days! I'm aware being the new lease holder that Peter can do what we wants! What concerns me is how will this effect other RV rates at other RV Parks in LHC? Peter needs to raise 1 million dollars a year thru rents to make the lease payment work yearly according to a newspaper article. Will the other RV Resorts/Parks continue with there prices of $375.00 to $500.00 per month or will they follow Peter at $1,000.00 per month per space? I also read in the paper where Crazyhorse just renewed there lease but I don't know if rents will be raised there. And, I was shocked that the State of Arizona wouldn't renew Sandpoint RV Parks lease and they had to shutdown this past Jan.31st and the State has commented it doesn't know what to do with that land? The Beachcomber is now asking top dollar for land currently that is not worth the price for rent!

RE: Used Diesel Motorhomes

I drive my motorhome in the range that you indicated! That's why I didn't buy a D.P. and stayed with gas. If you still want to get a used D.P. I suggest you browse www.DemartiniRV.com

RE: Tires. How old is to old

My last set of Michelins I replaced after 10 years! I don't get tire advice from the RV.Net tire Inspectors. I had my tires broken down off the rim every year after 5 years and inspected inside and out by a certified tire expert at my tire shop! It gives me peace of mind and I know exactly what I'm driving on!

RE: Rotate tires on Class A YES OR NO ( why?)

I'm not a tire expert! But I have a lot of experience being around tires! I have never rotated a tire on my Semi 44-1/4 years driving over the road (logged over 4 million miles) and, I have never rotated a tire on my RV and I've been RVing since 1976. My tire guy told me not to and I believed him, never asked him why, just did what I was told.

RE: Workhorse Chasis Service

I'm not in your area but when I'm home I use a Chevrolet Dealership in Tacoma and when I'm in Lake Havasu City, AZ. I use Joe's Automotive and RV both are authorized Workhorse Dealers. I would give your local Chevy Dealer a call! My Workhorse is a 2004!

RE: Why I own a MH continued

I would use a large carry on bag when flying (I travel light) it goes on and off the plane with me! No waiting for suitcases for me.
