RE: Napa Sonoma camping suggestions?

We stayed at Napa Valley Expo Nice park. Our only problem was the rudest camp host we have ever encountered and hopefully they have addressed that.

RE: 30 amp and one air conditioner

I've had my 31K (32 1/2' long) with a 15,000 BTU ducted air conditioner for 2 years, and have done all my "camping" in Florida, and have never had a problem with the one unit not being able to cool the MH. It has never run constantly and cycles on and off like my house AC. X2, I live in Florida and have owned several Class C rig, 15K AC and heat pump was all I ever needed. Unless you are talking about a super C I see no need for a second AC. Largest heat loss thru windshield, a windsheild blanket with some insulation/reflection capabilities would go a long way if your parked in the sun. And yes at times the AC will continue to crank depending on the insulation capabilities of the rig but that should be fine. X3 I did 4 summers in Florida in a 31 ft. One AC works just fine. YOU just have to learn HOW to RV/camp in hot weather states to assist your AC. You could add 2 more AC's and if you don't to the following it will still be hot inside your RV! It's not a house. It is a big uninsulated box sitting in the sun. :B When possible: 1.Find shade parking space 2.Face the side your awning is on to the west. so you can put your awning down to the lowest position to shade that side of the RV during the hottest part of the day. Items to buy: 3. Pillow covers in all vent openings. Cover skylight in shower if you have once. AC cold goes right out the vents they are not air tight. 4. If the RV has white vent covers? Replace them with smoke colored ones. 5. MH's cover those windshields with sunshades. TT's cover the windows. On the east side in the morning and on the west side in the afternoon. 6. I bought removable limo tint and did all my windows. Looks professional and cut down the sun and I can still see out. REAL hot days I add van windshield sun shades under the day night shades. Makes a BIG difference. And lastly the first summer I did in Florida the Mobile Repair Guy told me to get a de-humidifier. THAT made a REAL BIG difference on how cold the AC could get the inside. Well stated If you do not have window awnings on the drivers side this helps a bunch. Sunscreen We close off the bathroom the overhead and the cab area during the hottest parts of the day.

RE: Bad Customer Service

As a former retail manager one of the issues I faced was that if a salesman sold to many of the advertised leaders they would be "counseled in proper sales techniques. It is illegal to fire a salesman for selling to many advertised leaders but they can be fired for other offenses. As a result most salesmen that are not supervised correctly will walk a sale on a an advertised item. IMHO that is what happened several years ago during a week period we went to the Camping World in Mesa AZ and we only had one question that the salesman could not answer about the RV we were looking at that kept us from buying and he said he would call back he was given 3 phone numbers and an e-mail address we even called and left two voice messages and we never heard from him.

RE: How much do you use your generator?

IMHO take it to another repair center and get there opinion. We were told by a Cummins repair facility that our was toast also but took it took it to another Cummins repair facility and it was repaired for under $500.00 and that was 2 years ago. Same thing has happened on our refrigerator and the furnace.

RE: Middle Arkansas recommendations, please

Check out Petit Jean State Park. Some full hookups on the lake. Very pretty park. x2 X3 FYI The site we were in had the water on the opposite side than what you normally find and since we only carried a 25 foot hose we could not hookup to the water.

RE: Best route to Eagle Nest, NM from El Paso, TX

RE: Casino Queen RV Park, East St.Louis ???

We have stayed there twice and will stay there again if in St Louis. Very clean park and we had no trouble finding it. You can ride the shuttle to and back from the Metro Link Station at no charge. IMHO the Metro Link is the way to get to the Arch. If you have time take the Metro Link to the St Louis Art Museum. There is a Trolley that you can take from Metro Link station to the Museum.

RE: Going to need help!

How about heading out on a southern route and hit the NP's around the four corners area, then to the coast. The ruins of Mesa Verde, the Grand Canyon, and Zion would be my pick three parks with your limited time. Maybe a ride on the Durango-Silverton Narrow Gauge RR. This will take you into some unbelievable spectacular scenery unlike anything you may have seen before. It will already be quite warm in June in southern UT, but the parks there are almost otherworldly. This would be an amazing trip. While at Mesa Verde and Durango, maybe add Moab, UT to see Arches and Canyonlands National Parks with a drive through Monument Valley to the South rim of the Grand Canyon. That would make Zion tough, but all would be great. X3 and stop on the way to these amazing places Bents Old Fort

RE: Going to need help!

If you plan to stay at a spot on the Pacific Ocean you need to call and reserve now and even now it could be to late IMHO.

RE: Yellowstone National Park store prices

Our experience at West Yellowstone was high prices and limited selections. Why do you not want to take the supplies with you?

RE: Roadside Assistance Fiasco

Was contacted by Good Sam and they were very much interested in the problems that we had and I feel that they are going to look into what happened so that it might not happen to other members in the future.

RE: Recommendations - Portland - Banff - Glacier - Yellowstone

"The RV is not easy to drive under the best of circumstance, but mountain driving was particularly scary, especially from Bakersfield to Las Vegas, and Sedona into Phoenix. We have since gotten a sway bar installed, which has improved things some, but the fact is, the Mirada is a light, underpowered low end rig, and we have to deal with that." Lets address this statement Have you taken this RV to a truck scale and weighed it? IMHO the majority of handling issues are the result of a under loaded front axle. You can throw money at all you want for handling upgrades but if that front axle is not at least at 80% you will have handling issues. Weight behind the rear axle unloads the front axle and the further back from the axle the more it unloads, think of a see saw. In mountain driving you have to use your transmission. Downshift going up and downshift going down to control your speed. Your first downshift is turning the overdrive off.

RE: Death Valley

Would only do it at night running the generator for roof AC and not running dash AC.

RE: Poor ride on the E450 platform

There are charts, but you'll need to provide front/rear axle weights and then the make/model of your tires first. For clarification not published weight but the actual weight loaded as you would be as if your were on a trip and to do that you have to go to a truck scale.

RE: Controlling odors in an RV

Make sure there is water in all the traps and use homemade #2 spray

RE: Roadside Assistance Fiasco

ALL the ERS services including your insurance company tow service are ALL the same, some calls go as smooth as silk others may not. These ERS companies have no control WHEN the towing company can get to you. It still amazes me that when an RV breaks down they want a tow truck INSTANTLY. Trust me being an RV'er doesn't make me or anyone else the only one broke down on the road that day and needing that same tow service. You will get service in the order the tow company got the call and who they can get to first. GS, Coachnet, AAA, State Farm have NO control over that. The don't own their tow companies they contract them out for full USA coverage. In the op's instance it doesn't even sound like it was an emergency but a 'planned' maintenance tow. ""...On 3/28 I contacted road side service to set up a tow between 8 and 9 on 3/30..." Not even sure if that is covered under "E"RS. But if there were 'emergency' calls made to the tow service for the same time the emergency will take precedence over a planned tow. Gee whiz if they screw up this bad with 2 days of notice how do you think that it would be better if it was as you call it a emergency call? The tow company did give me immediate service once RA did call them. They were given the wrong vehicle to tow and the wrong location to take it to by RA. As I stated I have had good service from RA in the past but wanted Good Sam to know of the problems that I had this time. And this forum was the only way that I could find to contact them.

RE: Roadside Assistance Fiasco

On 3/28 I contacted road side service to set up a tow between 8 and 9 on 3/30 gave them all the info including a phone number that the text message could be sent to with the service provider info 10/30 voice mail 8 am to call back because they did not have all the info. Called back was told they would need to check the notes. After 10 minutes on hold hung up and called back got a different rep who stated that the other rep was on the phone contacting a service provider and it was now scheduled for 10:45 At 9:50 called the service provider who claimed they had no such call set up At 10:00 called roadside service again and they called the service provider and set up a tow At 10:05 Called service provider to confirm and they confirmed the appointment. At 10:19 Called road side service asked for a supervisor to let them know of the problems and was told A. That if a text had been sent out it was impossible not to have contacted the service provider B. Due to high call volume that the road side assistance operators do not have the time to take all the information when somebody calls in. Yes that is correct I repeated it back to the supervisor twice and he confirmed that was correct Then contacted Good Sam to report this and told the operator that I would like to report a problem with road side services and I needed to talk to someone other than road side services she agreed and then transferred me to road side services At 12:05 tow showed up and had the wrong address of where to take the vehicle and the wrong vehicle to tow. Just thought someone would like to know what is going on or not going on at Good Sam Road Side Assistance Moral of story always call back over and over and over and over and over and repeat this process. shows Call Service provider and confirm that they are indeed coming out and confirm with them the address of where they need to come to. When provider does show up and confirm EVERYTHING with the service provider and then reconfirm with service provider. Note have used Good Sam RA in the past with very good service and results just not this time. I would suggest you call GS and ask to speak directly with Mr. Marcus, the president of GS. He always been response and resolved the issue and then gave a $25 fuel credit card for my problems. In my post I stated that I called Good Sam and asked to talk to someone about this other than RA and they still transferred me to RA. I did call back and got put on intergalactic hold. My question to you would be how many times would you try to talk to them before saying they do not care?
