RE: Benson, AZ January weather question

Thinking about a stopover in Benson this winter. I see that the elevation is around 3100 feet. Went to the Weather Channel and checked out the average temperatures in January. It said the average low was 29 and average high was 63 for the month. Does that sound accurate for those of you who've stayed there? If so, that may be a bit chilly for our bones.But it is a dry snow.

RE: Questions about Algodones, Mexico

Was there last Wed. I didn't have to wait a min. to cross back. The line was just me and the wife. I guess when it is 110 degrees the line is shorter.

RE: E-450 Exhausting Drive

It's not an "E-450" problem. It is the make and model of the MH. I drove MANY MH's before I bought and some make/models where SO loud and handling sucked. Not going to get into a brand name war so since you already own this MH my advice would be tire pressure, leaf springs and the Michelin's. Lower the tire pressure in just the front. All 6 tires should NOT be the same pressure. It should be lower on the fronts. Have a good and reputable frame shop look at your leaf springs. Metal fatigues. Everyone always want to run to aftermarket items when all what is needed is new leaf springs. I went new leaf springs and added a leaf. I couldn't believe I was driving the same MH after I had that done! And you won't want to hear this part....... I put all new Michelin's on my MH before heading out full time. THE Biggest mistake I ever made. It CHANGED the handling. Fought for months trying to pinpoint the problem surely not thinking it would be my brand new $$$tires.:R It took an over the road truck driver to point out my problem. The outer rib on those tires are too aggressive for a heavy MH chassis and they move back and forth giving you a tire roll front end feeling. He took 2 fingers and easily moved that outer rib back and forth. Add the weight of the MH on that and you get the idea. Heavy semi's actually have a bald out rib to prevent tire roll. Solution to that problem? Take them off and replace the tires or wait years and miles for them to wear down. IMHO they need to STOP selling those tires for MH's. http://i58.tinypic.com/2cerlw2.jpgMy MH a E450 29 ft. with three slides, it is 10 times better riding than one I had 20 years back, it rides better than my pickup and not as good as my car. I put on a new set of tires (at 13,000miles) when I bought it use , name brand. It only has 20,000 miles on it, it came with the Hellwig system on it so I don't know what it would ride like without it, I do run my tire at 60 lbs, I can't believe how easy it drives with hardly any noise in side.

RE: E-450 Exhausting Drive

Just got back from a trip to northern Vermont and much more exhausted than usual from the drive. Between the harsh ride and interior noise from every bump in the road, I could not wait to get home. Rv is a 2011 Chateau 28 ft long. I have done Hellwig sway bars and Bilstein shocks which helped handling. Just got a new set of Michelin MS2 tires under the recall. Should I be looking at replacing the stock steering damper, front end alignment, a track bar etc.? Open to suggestions!What year is it? how many miles on it? Are you first owner?

RE: Why a small class C ?

We have had a 24ft C for about 10 years now. Other than weekends, and a few longer (extended family) campouts. 90% of our use has been road trips. Stay a night, rarely two and on the road again. This year we stayed a one place for 6 nights then did the day trip thing. I was not a fan, got kind of bored comming back to the same place. Found out, while camping is fun, it's really about the road trip for us. And I think a small class C does that better than just about any other kind of rig. Others feel different of course. But all to often, I think people don't figure out, what it is they really like to do, and buy the wrong rig for their needs.We travel the same as you, one night, now and then three or four, back to one, last year we stayed in 27 parks on one trip. My gas bill is so big I don't look, just pay it and move on.

RE: More power for my Ford E450 32 Foot Forest River Sunseeker

One don't need any more power, there is nothing at the top of a hill,I have about the same size V-10 and it runs fine, climbs good, always gets me there. I went from a supercharger rig to this, they both have there place.

RE: Chaco road?

Was at Chaco last Wed to Fri. Two hours from home. They just bladed the road while we were there. Pretty rough after the winter, pretty good after they bladed it. Depending on when you go, it may be washboarded again by then. We take a Truck and cabover camper along with a jeep to explore with. Was a nice class A at the visitor's center when we left. It is 18 miles of gravel or dirt road from end of pavement to park boundary. For a county kid, I think it is a pretty fair road most of the time, for a pavement follower, it may seem a bit rough. There is no issues other than just bumpy. 30 foot widths, about 6 miles of good gravel and mag chloride making good hardtop and dust control. Rest is pretty good most of the time for rural country out west. On the camping, it has about 45 spots including the tent only spaces (about 25 RV spaces). Limited length for RV's with only a few being 35 foot, most are in the 20's. Pads are level gravel and wide enough for two vehicles side by side (a little tight). No hookups but does have a dump station. Rest rooms with flush toilets, no showers. Limited generator usage. No other services like fuel or snacks. There were a 35'ish Class A and 30 ft Class C their last week. Check Reservations.gov for layout and details The photo is of the RV area. The tent area is close up and out to left. Our rig is deep left. Questions, drop me a PM or post here http://i415.photobucket.com/albums/pp239/dramsey1281/ChacoCampground.jpg Went there a month back, very nice site to park. Came in the south side road was poor, went of the east side wash board for 8 mile or so, then much better. I drove 40 to 45 when I could, less time better ride. They plan to pave the east part later. We have a Ford 450E 29 ft. B+ HR. Everyone should go if possible. They had a evening show on some stars, it was fair. Went to another star show three weeks later in Alpine, Az. libary that was the best I have ever seen, put on by a man from Tx. Thanks to Sheepcamp

RE: Vegas to Quartzsite

The Kingman route is out of your way.214mi (Neeedles) vs 235mi (Kingman) is not 'out of your way' to me. Besides, the drive through Havasu is so much more enjoyable.Yes it is.

RE: Onan 4000 Revs up and Down

There are not many hours on it. I want to say about 250 is a good estimate. I do not use it often. I many run it to excercise it more than I use it. My main concern is making sure that it is the carb before I replace it. Can anything else cause this to happen?This week I had a new fuel pump put the them unit with 120 hrs. It ran but stopped after 5 mins, then ran a few mins later.

RE: Onan 4000 Revs up and Down

I have been having issue with my generator, onan microlite 4000. Has gas fuel pump works spark plug new filters are good. Took the carb off and it is clean. Nothing gummed in bowl or jets from what I saw. However, I get it going and all it does is rev up and down? Is the carb needing replaced or is something else up with it?How many hrs. on it.

RE: Traveling the Great Circle

We will be leaving on May 10th for a BIG loop trip starting from our home in Show Low AZ. We will be traveling to: Grand Canyon South Rim Lees Ferry to fish the Colorado River Grand Canyon North Rim Zion Canyon Bryce Canyon Panguitch UT to fish the Sevier River and Panguitch Lake Kodachrome Basin Cedar Breaks National Monument Escalante/Grand Staircase Capitol Reef National Park Canyonlands National Park Arches National Park Mesa Verde National Park Dunes National Park Northeast of Durango Durango Colorado Navajo Lake recreation area in New Mexico to fish the San Juan River. From there we may head home or continue to travel to New Mexico locations. We have reservations at all the locations and are not in a hurry. This Loop is only about 1300 miles and we plan on being gone until the first part of July?? This is our first long road trip since our retirement and we are very excited to get on the road. jesseannieI have done them all to, in fact a few times. You have picked one of the best trip there is, add a few more along the way.

RE: Chaco road?

Yes to class C. We were there the last week of Sept. last year, saw several Class As and Cs, We waited half a day up in Farmington for rain to let up, probably should have waited another day. The road going in was still muddy and slick as driving on ice for vehicles of all sizes. Had to go very slow to avoid sliding into ditches on both sides. There's no shoulder to turn around and go back. Glad when we reached the paved NP roads. The road gets graded by the county periodically, but it's very rutted. The camp host suggested getting up to about 45 to ride the tops of the ruts (rather than go slow, down into them repeatedly.) That worked well leaving on the dry road. Dry is no big deal, wet is scary. It will not be paved, by the way. Proposal to do so was defeated last year by local opponents after funding in place and several years of study. The rangers are happy to take phone calls about road conditions. Very nice folks there. As of this year, you can reserve sites. Recreation.gov. Beats driving that road and wondering if Gallo Campground will be full when you get there. Wonderful experience to see the canyon.How many RV spots?
