Have you all over thought of a "trip report" forum. This is where people could put in ideas, comments etc on trips they just made for others who are thinking about a similar trip could get info.

RE: truck stop ettiquete

I am usually traveling solo = except for dog. I pull in truck lane next to pump, go in give them my CC, go out fuel up, move forward to yellow line and go in and pay and get my CC back. Never had a problem. Truckers are actually interested in RV mileage and diesel size. Just say ho to them.

RE: Camping World Web Needs help!

OP here - To be fair to CW - I did get contacted by therm and they are issuing a ($9.95 refund for the shipping). I did get the campground guide - so I am a Happy "Senior" Camper!

RE: Camping World Web Needs help!

As a senior - I like to read in a book not have to search on-line while traveling down the road. Their Campground guide is good - not the best - but it satisfies my needs. I ordered it so as to not have to go to a CW store.

Camping World Web Needs help!

I just ordered a 2015 Good Sam RV Travel & Savings Guide advertised at $9.95 with free shipping from the Camping World web site. When the order was sent it added $9.00 shipping to the total. I tried to call Customer Support but the voice mail talks about how they are having trouble with a new system and there is a lot of problems and the wait list is long. How do I ensure my credit card is not charged for the shipping? Web Reference number: 15415049. On TV, Marcus talks about how these poorly run businesses need to pay attention to the 3 P's - People, Product, and Processes. I think a look at Processes for Camping World web site is in order.

RE: A Little Help from Canada Peeps

Thanx for ideas. I will look at them. We will be on a 60 day trip from Tampa Fl to Yuma AZ and then to Hoover Dam, Zion, Bryce, Rocky Mountain Nat'l Park and then Minnesota to visit daughter and grandsons first birthday. I agree almost in the middle of nowhere. But - she is out of my house! Niagara Falls a little to far but great idea. KO

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?
