RE: Trip Report: The Perfect Family Trip!

Thanks for the great trip report. I live inTampa FL and have been working in Yuma AZ of the last 8,5 years. I had to be on-site in Yuma Mar-Apr and Sep-Oct. every year. This results in 4 cross country trips every year. I am retiring this August and will be making the last trip. Wife and I and 2 dogs will be making almost the identical Utah to Colorado trip. We have already done Grand Canyon, Sedona, Momument Valley and Arches. Thanks for the info as we ar planning on many of the same hikes you described (Narrows etc) Have a good one.

RE: Pets and Traveling

My dog Rocco has made 16 cross country trips during the last 6 years. This has been auto and RV. At first he was unsure of the moving RV, but he know takes over the queen sized bed and stretch out and enjoy the trip. I don't think he sleeps while traveling as he seems to enjoy down time when stopped. I make sure he has fresh water when we stop. When leaving the RV, I leave him - always with the AC on. He is ready to go when he sees me packing.

RE: RV Wi Fi System

I have a Verizon mifi, Mac Book Pro and wireless mouse and keyboard. I have used this setup for last 6 -7 years and have had no problem. Wife is a CFO for Company and does her work on the road using this setup - and we have been cross country several times. Her only complaint is laptop screen is to small to use while traveling down the road - but then she has twin 28 inch monitors on her desk at work.

RE: Yuma: Shangrila La vs Las Quintas Oasis or?

I have stayed in Yuma for the last 8 years. I stay at Rivers Edge Resort which is on the Colorado River just on the other side of Yuma - actually is in CA. It has trees for shade and plenty of room in each space. You pay electric - water is included in price. Shade is worth it!

RE: Low ECC Fluid Light

original OP here. Turns out no computer codes and nothing logged. There was no leaking at the water pump or hoses. No fluid in the oil and nothing being spit out of the exhaust. But fluid was down about a gallon in 6 months. The determination is the radiator cap needs replacing - also carry a gallon of coolant with a long funnel to replace any lost fluid and watch it.

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!
