RE: Garmin gps...2 questions

Yes, to using it in a class C. I have a 2797 and love it, a lot you can do with it. If you go to apps and page down to TRIP PLANNER, then NEW TRIP you can set up where you want to go with stops or via's along the way. Do yourself a favor and go into settings and set the calculation mode to Fastest Time, and Navigation Avoidances to avoid unpaved roads unless you plan on driving unpaved roads. Also on your map screen you can have on the far right distances to various items of interest like gas stations, food or my favorite rest areas. I have had the 2797 for about a year and I'm still finding new things it will do. I love the size, I can actually read it in the MH unlike the ones I've had in the past. The only issue I have with it is the bluetooth doesn't work well. If you have any questions you can PM me.

RE: Tool: how far can I travel in x hours?

I would love is a phone app where you could enter a route and have it project where you would be in X amount of time. With that I could search for campgrounds or motels, food near there. If there wasn't anything I could expand the search from there. Anyone know of one? The closest one I know of is called RoadAhead, which gives you what's available a the next given number of exits.

RE: How was Quartzsite?

We have been going for over 10 years and stay at Roadrunner. I thought there were fewer vendors, less people shopping, but more people camping. It seems like those that have been going for some time shop less, either they already have what they are selling, or don't need it. Though, it doesn't keep DW from finding that special something.

RE: mission at san juan capistrano

Parking around the mission is tight, you might want to leave the MH in one of the retail parking lots in the area and drive the toad to get closer.

RE: Caravan

Doing a trip like that with 4 rigs without a plan, at least a loose one would be like herding frogs. The plan sounds good on paper, but in reality could be a disaster. I have a friend who traveled with 3 other rigs and what they did was say that they would meet up at a campground at the end of the day and everyone was on their own until then, that way everyone could hit the road when they were ready, travel the speed they wanted and see whatever sites they wanted to along the way. Sometimes they traveled together, sometimes not. They all had Ham radios to keep in touch. The FRS radios are OK, but don't have a very good range, a CB is better. Cell phones work as long as you have coverage. Good luck and I hope it works out. For me the planning would probably be more fun than the actual trip. LOL Though I have found that man plans and God laughs.

RE: New Jeep Renagade not flat towable

Since there is not much difference in weight between these vehicles and the toad will not be a daily driver, I will be going with a 4 dr Wrangler. Funny you would pick the Wrangler over a Cherokee as a daily driver. IMO the Cherokee would have a better ride and better fuel mileage. But not having driven both vehicles that is pure conjecture.

I would suggest one of the campgrounds near Disneyland, from there you can branch out. The best time to be on the road is between 9 am and 2 pm, any other time expect traffic. As far as things to see and do, you could spend a lifetime just visiting attractions in the area. One good source for advice is the people working at whatever campground you stay at. If you don't have a gps, I would suggest getting one and getting to know it before trying to get around in the LA area. Come and have a great time and enjoy our weather.

RE: Irvine CA

Unless you go to public campgrounds and move every couple of weeks, it's not going to be cheap. You might want to look into Huntington by the sea in Huntington Beach 800 439-3466. It won't be the closest, but probably the most reasonable. Kind of.

RE: Another knee surgery!!

WyoTraveler is correct, a replacement knee is not better than the original but, it's much better than limping around in pain. I had one replaced in 2010 and I've pretty much forgotten about it. There is no pain or problems with the new knee. I would definitely do it again. x2 I had my knee done 3 years ago and would do it again in a heart beat. No more pain, I can walk without a cane, and I am able to ride my bike 40 miles a week. It does "clunk" on occasion and every once in a while I'll get a momentary pain, but all things considered I'm a happy camper.

RE: Bodie State Historic Park

It's a very interesting place and for more days than not, the coldest place in California.

RE: Jeep Toad w/Winch

One thing to consider is the weight on the front end. With the winch, baseplate and winch plate you could be putting on close to 200 lbs without the weight of an aftermarket bumper. Some of that could be eliminated with a bumber with all combined, if there is one available. A friend just bought a 2014 Rubicon and was going to put his winch off his old jeep on the new one. The winch plate alone weighed 65 lbs. He decided that with the winch, plate and baseplate it was more weight then he wanted on the front end.

RE: Need a chuckle? Thought I'd share....

Pill pockets have worked well for me.

RE: cleaning inside garage/toy hauler area

Dawn dish washing soap or Simple Green work well on grease. Squirt some on the spots, scrub with a push broom, them mop.

RE: Cal Am resorts

We have stayed at Val Vista for about a month for the last 10 years. It's clean, well maintained, MANY activities, and very nice people.

RE: Ideas for small bathroom sink

I saw a sink which was a metal bowl with a hole cut in the bottom for the drain. Something to consider. This would work with your shelf with a hole cut out.

RE: Easy rid of water spots

For waterspots that have dried, Jet-dry does a good job of getting rid of them.

RE: Turkey thru my windshields

Well, you won't get a turkey delivered any fresher than that. :B I'm glad everyone is ok.

RE: Potato Bag

DW made a bunch of them as well as tortilla warmers for Christmas presents. They work great. The potato and tortillas come out more moist.

RE: Jeep Liberty

Ask the dealer for the Owners Manual. Look for "Recreational Towing", or perhaps just "Towing", in the table of contents. There is perhaps a 99% chance that what the Book says is accurate. You can go to the Jeep website and download the owners manual, then check recreational towing.
