RE: Barbecue + beer: Is it ok in every RV camp ?

As for grillin and camping - just go to RV World and look at the number of portable camping grills they have available. I always have beer in the RV fridge. If drinking beer is illegal - I just drink it inside (or use the the old Red Solo cups).

RE: CB channels...

I have CB in my RV. I use it when traffic is slowed or stopped. Always good to know what lane to get in and how much of a back up is involved. Also good when I get bored listening to XM radio all day. I am not a speeder in my RV but the Bear reports are good. My CB has weather channels and I get weather warnings on it. I do leave radio on to monitor weather reports. Saved me a lot of time coming into Baton Rouge. Traffic was stopped as their was a big accident on the Mississippi River bridge. Truckers were telling each other to get off a exit prior and head north and cross river and then back to I-10. I listened and followed and it worked like a charm. Yes there is room for CB and RV forums on your smart phone - but CB is still king when you need to know what is happening in your immediate area now.

RE: Wonder what an extended trip will cost?

I am not in total agreement with all of these fuel numbers. I do travel very different from what you all are describing as I need to get from Tampa, FL to Yuma, AZ on a timetable. It is also a trip I make twice a year so I am familier with the route and I have been doing this for a 6.5 years. I have a 38 ft Fleetwood Diesel towing a 1991 Honda Civic. It is about 2300 miles one way and I do this trip in 3.5 to 4 days so my daily mileage is much higher and hence higher daily fuel costs. I do stop about twice a day for fuel (7.5-8 mpg)and have been averaging about $3.80 a gallon for a total cost of about $1140 for fuel. While someone making the same trip over a longer time period (say 2 weeks vice my 3 days), would result in spending the same amount on fuel. Total fuel costs would be the same; however, daily fuel costs would be lower. I do stay at Good Sam or KOA when I desire to have electric and take on water but I will boondock at Truck stops or Rest areas. I generally do this trip with less then $90 spent on RV sites. I agree with previous comment about not including meals as you have to eat even if you are not on the trip. All of my meals are cooked in RV so my daily cost (with fuel) comes to about $325/day - again this is because of my tight timeline. If I made this trip in 7 days then my daily rate would be down to around $50/day. I think the point I am making is daily cost is too variable but the total cost of a trip remains constant.

RE: How many miles can you expect to put on a CAT 3126?

I have a 2006 Bounder with 55,000 and no problems. Like has been said before, change oil and keep maintenance up and drive often and no problem.

Travelilng with Grandson

A little help. I am planning on traveling from lower US to Alaska and driving thru Canada. I will be traveling with my 7 year old Grandson. What "paper work" will I need for him to cross borders?

RE: Golf Cars in Campgrounds

The RV resort I stay in swells in size when the snowbirds get into town. The golf cart count definitely starts to rise. The resort is almost a 3/4 mile in length and for the old folks who want to use the pool, do their laundry, play cards or participate in the evening functions it is convient. Many of the people who live here full time are single, many are wounded vets from Korea and Viet nam and this is their home. The carts provide them a way to get out in the fresh air and visit. Now having said all that, their is definitely a "one upsmanship" within the golf cart ranks. They have all sorts of ATV, and golf cart upgrades. I have always said that I'd you want to see the latest in toys just go to a RV resort and you will see them. To each their own. It's their money, so if it makes them happy go for it!

RE: Protocol for fueling diesel

Not a true statement for Arizona. I work here and use the truck lanes often when driving my RV.

RE: Orlando, FL to Arizona (Grand Canyon)

If you are near Kerriville Texas and ready for a stop - Buckhorn Lake Resort. A nice place. Right off the interstate,great dog run, and nice and clean.

RE: road altitudes

Altitude in the southwest can be deceiving. The south rim of the Grand Canyon is at 7000' and the north rim is at 8000'. Bryce Canyon is around 8000-9000'. I am sure you have seen pictures of people there but it does not appear to be so "high". Your concern crossing the mountains should be about the grade and not the altitude. The I-10 grade is not noticable except there are are several grades that will get your attention for a short period of time. You will see a sign on I-10 notifying you are crossing the Contential Divide and are up around 4000' - but it comes at a complete surprise as the climb is so gradual. There are other more pressing concerns when traveling out west - and wind is the one on my list that I watch. The wide expanse doesn't stop the winds and they can get pretty gusty. If in loose sand area sand storms are a real danger. As for a grade to avoid - I would stay away from I-70 thru Colorado but it is one of the most beautiful drives in America.

RE: road altitudes

I-10 crosses the Contential Divide in New Mexico at 4585 ft. It is a slow climb and does catch you by surprise when you get there. I-10 in Arizona does get above 5000 ft.

RE: Orlando, FL to Arizona (Grand Canyon)

Houston and San Antonio are no fun driving so I always do very early in the morning. El Paso can also be a bear but you can time that with rush hour traffic.

RE: Protocol for fueling diesel

I usually drive solo as I use my RV as a place to live while at work 5 months out of the year. I drive Florida to Arizona and have a toad. I never use the car lanes always the truck lanes. For me it is safer and faster. Some of the best conversations I have had is with truckers while refueling. If you pull forward ( there is usually a yellow line) they don't mind you being there.

Do you have one now? If so, do you know when/if it was ever changed? Not much of a problem to change but for an upgrade not sure i would mess with it.

RE: myrtle beach to tampa

I agree with the 301 routing. Just be advised that I-4 is not a bad highway from Orlando to Tampa. All the construction is completed 3 lanes all the way and not a bad drive - once you get thru Orlando.
