RE: California adds 12 cent gas tax and 20 cent diesel tax

Bad roads, higher fuel cost, a 55MPH speed limit and stuck in the right lane wonder why I am going to bypass California on the trip back from Washington? And to top that off our RV is old school carbureted and have no issues when in Arizona but let me fill up in California I will start having occasional back fires get back to Arizona after the second fill up no more backfires.

RE: What do you do before a trip?

I notice everyone says "fill the water tank". Don't!! Most class C's are weight capacity limited (ours is very limited) so why carry an extra 300-400 pounds (or more) you don't need to. We limit the water tank to 5-6 gallons, just enough for the toilet until we reach our destination. Fill if needed at that point for boon-docking. Keep just a couple of gallons in the grey and black tanks. Other than that the lists are good. Dave Excellent advice unless you breakdown in hot weather or the water at your campground has taste issues.

RE: What do you do before a trip?

Will here I go and open a can of worms. Your rig is a 2013 so if you have never bought tires the tires are at or past the 4 year mark. IMHO no matter what you have done to the tires and no matter how much tread is left they need to be replaced.

RE: Route for California to Texas travel in early April

I've never even slowed down on 85 bypassing PHX north or south bound any time of day. 85 be a long ways west of PHX. You are correct I was thinking of another route.

RE: Tucson C alignment Sprinter chassis

Make sure that whoever you use will not charge if they can not do the alignment with out repairs. Our mechanic replaced a tie rod end on our RV and stated that there was nothing else wrong with the front end. First three alignment shops I went to claimed that there were serious repairs that needed to be done. Forth shop did the alignment with no repairs. We had this same issue before with a car. IMHO the majority of alignment shops are rip offs.

RE: Campsite leveling solutions

We are not nuts about leveling close is good enough but when we do need to level we love these and have had several other campers get jealous on how easy they are to use. Anderson Levelers

RE: Tank Oder

Have found that a huge amount of black tank odors are not black tank odors. Run three to four cups of water down every drain in the RV. Water in the P traps will evaporate and let the odor from the gray tank up in the RV.

RE: Route for California to Texas travel in early April

I 40- 95 SOUTH I 10 east - 85 south- I 8 east to I 10 east....YOU ARE GOLDEN !!! all good roads !! and you will miss the mess in PHX. I have driven both but at rush hour both are horrible. Plan your trip to hit Phoenix between the hours of 11Am to 2PM on weekdays or anytime on weekends and it is smooth sailing either route.

RE: Route for California to Texas travel in early April

Would take I40 to Needles and then 95 to I10. Campgrounds should be open. might be able to recommend some stop with the following info how many days do you have for this jaunt and how many miles per day do you want to drive

RE: Safety

Keep in mind where do the bullets go? A large caliber bullet could easily go thru the wall of your house and thru the wall of your neighbor and still have enough force to kill someone. With that thought how many RV's could they go thru? IMHO for my life to be threatened the person would have to be within 20 feet so I do not need anything that would be accurate beyond that. I would want something that did not require me to be super accurate but at the same time stop the threat and not become a threat to someone 50 feet away or in there home/RV I would want something small so that it is easy to take with me something big might be to much hassle to take. The answer for me would be this combo. Taurus Judge PDXI

RE: North Phoenix to Usery Mountain during rush hour?

I would take the 101 East to the 202 East to McDowell Rd East. Sure, you'll have some traffic at that time of day, but personally I wouldn't go 10 miles out of my way. Definitely don't take I17 South to the 202 East. X2 Its as good as it gets.

RE: Why do Class C's always leak in the front upper bunk area?

I had a leak at the bottom of the sidewall on the cab over and could not find any caulk or sealant that did not crack or separate. I have had great success now in sealing that seam with Gorilla Clear Repair Tape

RE: First Time Across Country to Grand Canyon

We travel with a dog all the time and there are no problems with proper planning. You will need to travel with the generator running and the roof AC on for the comfort of all the people anyway. We never run the dash AC roof only with a fan to circulate the air up in cab area takes a huge load off of the engine and no need to turn off AC when climbing a grade. Look for RV parks such as the KOA I suggested in Williams AZ that offer a dog walking service. For a slight fee the will come to your RV check on your dog, feed your dog and walk your dog while you are gone. More and more parks are offering that service. It might not be on there website but call them and you will find them.

RE: First Time Across Country to Grand Canyon

Leave the cat take the dog. The Williams Circle Pines KOA has on site dog walking service available. More and more parks offer that service.

RE: 10 days in Colorado in June

After RMNP go to Rifle Falls State Park not Rifles State Park but Rifle FALLS 3 minute walk from your campsite and your at the falls. Then to the Black Canyon of the Gunnison from there Durango. While at Durango explore Mesa Verde National Park and take the Durango Silverton Railroad. Then head off to the Enchanted Circle Scenic Byway which is a loop that connects Taos, Angel Fire, Eagle Nest, Red River and Questa and circles most of the tallest mountains in New Mexico. The route that I would take from Durango would be East to Pagosa Springs then South on 84/64 to Taos. If you have time after the Circle head to Santa Fe.
