RE: HyWay 34 in Estes CO

Thanks for the great info. As I said, this route was spit out from the Good Sam Trip Planning software on their web site. I thought this was routing thru Rocky Mountain National Park. I have been to Grand Lakes before (better half wants to visit again). I was leaning towards going back to I-70 and then Denver and on my way. But the route from Thom02099 sounds better and I will probably do that route.

HyWay 34 in Estes CO

Doing some trip planing. The Good Sam Trip planner routed me from Grand Lakes CO onto HyWay 34 on my way to Minnosota in Aug. I have a 38 ft Class A with CAT 300 towing a Honda CR-V on dolly. Any problem with driving this road?

Low ECC Fluid Light

I have a 2006 Bounder with a CAT 300 (C7)turbo desiel engine. I have had the RV sitting in RV spot for about a year and am ready to move on in about a month. I start up and run the engine (and generator)every month. The generator decided to not start and I have determined I need to replace the house batteries, which I plan to do this weekend. When I run the engine, I now get a "Check Engine Light" and soon a red "Eng Prot" light comes on with a "EEC Fluid Low" message in the computer. I have spoken with the local engine shop and they say to start it up and see if it will drive to the shop (about 8 miles). I have heard that the red light may shut the engine down and I don't want to be stopped on side of road. Some people say that the issue may be from the low batteries I have in the coach. Thoughts?

RE: RVing with a dog

I "full-time" for during Mar-Apr and Sep-Oct in Yuma AZ. I live in Tampa FL and my dog Rocco has been across country with me for last 8 years. He stays in RV when I am at work. We walk about 2 miles every morning and 1mile every evening. I leave AC on (as I am plugged in) and make sure he has plenty of water. Office knows he is in there - so if power goes off they will call me.

Brake light help

I have a 1993 Honda DRX that is setup to tow 4 down. I used this forum several years ago to determine how to set up brake light system using diodes (I think the wiring suggestion required 5 diodes - but then again maybe three). My issue is every time I drive the car and hit the brakes - the brake light stay on. The only way to turn off is to physically take off the power side of the battery. Any help or ideas in fixing this problem?

RE: Uncomfortable Trip I-10 Arizona to New orleans

Last year, traveling west on I-10 in LA the ride was rough. When DD and I stopped for the night at camp ground, the campground guide asked what was wrong with our bed room window. It was shattered. He said they see several instances of this a year. Assuming it was from road.

RE: Buying a CR-V for a Toad

Was a news flash to next door lady. She was told by Honda sales rep that the 2015 CR-V is towable 4 down. It is NOT. You must use a tow dolly or trailer for 2015 Honda CR-V.

RE: the palms yuma

A nice park but a bit on the expensive side. They have concerts there often during the snowbird season but it seems they are trying to "sell" th elots vice renting overnight. But yes they are still there.

RE: Ft. Desoto

Ft. Desoto is a great stay. I have staryed there several times. I usually stay for about 10 days. If you have dogs - it is one of the best dog runs I have ever been too! They can run and play in water on the beach. Many weekends have races (bike/runner). Beaches are nice. There is a somewhat small but convient store in campground. I have a kayak and take it as it is great paddling. Enjoy.

RE: Towing a 2015 Honda CR-V "four down"

I also discovered the problem about towing a 2015 Honda CRV - yesterday. I was getting ready to put a tow kit on my car when the Lady told me you can't tow 4 down. She said it is the Feds who mandated all new cars sold after 2017 must have at least 32MPG. In order to make this happpen - Constant Velocity Transmissions (CVT) are being installed. CVT cannot be towed or lub pump installed to get around it. I guess I am buying a tow dolly...

RE: Bounder

I have an 06 Turbo Diesel with about 55,000. I have been acting like a snow bird for last 6 years with it - living full time for 3 months at a time (Mar-May and Sep - Nov). I drive it from Tampa FL to Yuma AZ. I had a coolant probelm on the road and I had to ge service. I have replaced Batteries - but overall nice vehicle. I would buy another one.

RE: I 10 in Texas

I drive round trip on I-10 from Florida to Yuma AZ 2 times a year (job thing!). I have a 38 ft and toad and usually driving solo. I HATE Houston! I plan trip to be in Houston on Saturday or Sunday morning. That puts me in San Antonio around 11:00 - so yo kill 2 birds with ons stone. On one occasion I hit Houston at 4:00 A.M. - that worked also!

RE: Football Junky...but hate DirecTV

My problem with DirectTV is when I am not using the RV for several months. I am required to call DirectTV and purchase the cheapest TV package they have ($29.95) per month for each month I am not using it. If I don't do that, they will require me to start another 2 year contract each time I start to use the RV again. I believe the NFL package is around $250 per season - but it is a decent service - if you like football.

RE: Austin, TX to Orlando, FL

My travel speed is also about 62 MPH. I drive a 38' Class A diesel. I find I do have to stop every 2.5 to 3 hours to stretch and walk the dog. Weather can be severe in the gulf coast and may slow or stop your travel. There is a KOA right off I-10 at the Milton FL exit which is just east of Pensacola. They have a pool so kids can go jump in and burn some energy. The campgrounds do seem to get a bit harder to find in the AL, MS and LA states. They are there but typically further from interstate. Houston traffiic will definitly slow your average speed down. The trip can be done as you planned - but it will make for some long days. When I drive my car (not the RV) I make Tampa to CA in 2.5 days but that is 14 hour days behind the wheel.

RE: Diagnostic Charges

Thanks for quick turn around. It must be covered as you all have replaced the black box 3 times but I had to pay for the diagnostics this time.

RE: Austin, TX to Orlando, FL

I drive Tampa to Yuma 4 times a year (2 round trips). All the info provided is correct - especially the Mississippi River bridge being a PIA. I am not sure if Gulf Shores is your half way point or only stop enroute. If this is your only planned stop then the following comments apply. My first thought is I think you are a bit agressive on driving Orlando to Gulf Shores in 1 day. I usually drive Tampa to Pensacola on day 1 - though I could continue to drive but I stop around 4:00 PM. Not sure where you are coming from in the Texas Hill country but - San Antonio and Houston are absolute nitemares to drive! Especially if you hit them in or near rush hour traffic. I always time it so the first city I hit will be around 6:00 AM which makes the second city around 10:00 AM. If you do hit trafiic - I think Gulf Shores is way to agressive in one day. My most favorite rest stop in the U.S. is the Stenner Rest Stop on the Mississippi side of the Mississippi/Louisana state line. It has dump stations and wonderful parking for RV's.

Diagnostic Charges

I recently had some work done on my electric awning. I have had this looked at 3 times in the past. Each time the "fix" was to replace the black box but within days it would stop working. The problem is - I was on the road for some time and was never able to take it back. This past week I had a guy come out and fix my awning as Yuma AZ has 108 degree heat and the awning is a nice fixture! Repair guy told me that the Good Sam Extended service does not pay for diagnostic time. If this is true - why is that? KO

RE: Gas vs Diesel (I've read the FAQs!!)

I have nothing to add to the diesel climbing except my experience. I have driven my 38 ft 34,000 LB RV (powered by a CAT 330) on I-70 over Vail Pass towing my car. I think this is one of the hardest long climbs you will encounter on the intersate system. I had plenty of power going up and was passing many other vehicles. The other part I enjoy is the braking capability the Allison 6 speed transmission provides (not to mention the engine retard). I have learned to pay more attention to coming down then going up.
