RE: Temporary Hand Rail

I would only trust them for an assist in keeping balance, certainly not to support me. bumpy Exactly. But if you put it up as an assist, then if you do slip, you're going to automatically reach out to grab hold. From what I remember when we installed assist bars for my mom, thst was the biggest danger - if the assist bar isn't strong enough to help you when you lose your balance, then it becomes dangerous because your instinct is to grab it to stop the fall and it can't handle that - so you do more damage than without it. I did say temporory Since I do not know the practiclaty of installing true assist bars in a RV shower and I know that it would not be possible in a campground shower. IMHO They will work just fine to help stablize a person and would be better than nothing at all.

Temporary Hand Rail

These work great for use as a temporary hand rail in the shower or even a temporary towel rack. Click

RE: Getting it Road Ready

Almost certainly Tires and Brakes. You might be able to run tires 8 years if you USED the coach. With that much standing, the oils have left the sidewalls and maybe more. I'd also be surprised if brake caliper pistons and slides aren't stuck. If the generator had gas in the carb, you'll need to replace it. Re-seal the roof. What oils in the tires? I've heard this claim a few times, but it makes no sense whatsoever; the rubber is made from oil (petroleum products), but it does not contain liquid oil. If it did, the tires would leave oily marks when the vehicle was parked on e.g. concrete for a long time, or when the tires were stored for a long time on a piece of wood or whatever, or when the tire was damaged and the rubber torn apart; yet these do not occur, or at least I've never encountered them Using the vehicle would also tend to force the oil out of the sidewalls due to centrifugal force, wouldn't it? Tires age because of time, UV light exposure, and ozone mainly. Certainly old tires should be replaced or inspected as appropriate for safety. Per Tire Tech website Don't store a vehicle with weight on its tires for extended periods of time. Long-term inactivity is more harmful to tires than weekly drives that flex the tires and help maintain oil dispersion within the rubber compounds.

RE: Getting it Road Ready

We had great luck on a vehicle that had sat for while and was running rough when started back up and the check engine light came on. Filled it up with high octane and put a bottle of Techron in it and drove it about 30 minutes. Next day still running rough but better drove it again for 30 minutes and the third day it was running smooth and the light was off.

RE: OR/WA Loop June/July

Some thoughts. A great campground to stay at while exploring Crater Lake is Collier Memorial State Park and the outside logging museum at the park is great, Elwha Dam RV Park is a awesome park and great base camp for exploring the Oylmpic National Park and take the time to take the Cape Flattery Trail to the farthest West point in the Continental United States. As far as Washington State Beaches go one of are all time favorite beach is Pacific Beach State Park. In Oregon Oceanside Beachfront RV Resort, Coos Bay is also one our favorites, If you are traveling with a dog both of the beaches are dog friendly. Check out Willitts KOA the kids would love this campground and you can splurge and book a site with your own personal hot tub.

Warning on Trip Advisor

The Federal Trade Commission could take action against TripAdvisor after the Massachusetts-based travel company was accused of deleting hotel reviews that contained allegations of **** and other crimes. Several people told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel this month they were sexually assaulted at Mexican hotels and resorts but the online reviews that mentioned the crimes were taken down.

RE: Trip Advisor

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) may be looking into revelations about TripAdvisor suppressing negative reviews, judging by a report in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. As the Journal Sentinel revealed earlier this month, TripAdvisor users who had been sexually assaulted at resorts and then tried to warn other users found that their reviews were repeatedly taken down.

RE: East coast fuel stop questions.....

When I was starting out I was fretting about getting my 28' gasser into and out of stations and a wise RVer reminded me that gas is delivered via a semi every week of the year at every station in the country. He had some derogatory comments about the abilities of fuel truck drivers which I don't agree with, but he got the point across. Point taken but keep in mind those tankers do not pull up to the fuel islands. They can also back up with out unhooking a tow car. And steep approaches that will scrape the back end of a RV or even hang one up are no problems for tankers.

RE: East coast fuel stop questions.....

I go to google maps and look at stops in satellite view and street view. Tried that but I don't know enough about the layout of travel centers yet for it to do any good:o BAD notice that when you fuel you are facing the store and there is very little room to make a turn when you exit. Main fuel area is facing the store BAD but notice the RV fueling lanes horizontal to the road GOOD Good Lanes are horizontal to store and you would want to go the lane closest to the store. When you go to street view you also want to look at the approach to the station and make sure it is not steep Any questions PM me

RE: Fuel Stop - San Diego to Malibu

What I do is go to Google Maps and search for gas stations or truck stops in the area I know I will need to stop. Once you find some switch to satellite view any that look good on satellite view switch to street view.

RE: Santa Rosa CA to Minneapolis MN

When I drive in winter conditions I make sure I have these emergency supplies in the car. Per person: one 0 degree to -15 degree sleeping bag,under $30.00 at Wally World one quart drinking water one medium jar of peanut butter. In addition a bag of kitty litter,for traction a folding shovel and inexpensive RED poncho,great for keeping me dry but also GREAT to signal I need help. Chains or tires socks are also a good idea.

RE: Williamsburg and D.C. Campground recommendations

When we visited Williamsburg we were very pleased with Anvil Campground. The bus to Williamsburg stops at the front entrance.

RE: California is getting even more expensive

I guess Indiana is not so bad after all: The price of all motor fuel sold in Indiana also includes Federal motor fuel excise taxes, which are collected from the manufacturer by the IRS and are used to support the Federal Highway Administration. Federal excise tax rates on various motor fuel products are as follows: Gasoline $0.18.4 per gallon Diesel and Kerosene $0.242 per gallon Liquefied Petroleum Gas $0.183 per gallon Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) $0.243 per gallon Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) $0.184 per gallon All states include Federal motor fuel excise taxes then any state/local taxes are tacked on in addition

RE: Coos Bay OR to Yuma AZ

California gas prices are higher than the national average by about 56 cents a gallon and going to get higher with a 12 cent a gallon tax increase on 11/1/2017. Along with the 55 mph towing speed limit makes me want to avoid California if at all possible. This would be the route that I would take.
