RE: FREE Overnight Stops from Burnet, TX. to Las Vegas

Dancing Eagle Casino RV park in NM is not free but $10.00 with hookups is cheaper than running your generator for 8 hours.

RE: What age to replace tires?

Just because of our high heat in our area we have always replaced our tires at 4 years. However about 2 years ago we changed our minds on one of our cars and shortly before the 5 year mark we lost 2 tires in a months time. We are now back to replacing every 4 years. You will hear everything up to tires over ten years old and still good. But to quote Dirty Harry " Do you feel lucky" a rear tire going can and has caused thousands of dollars of damage a tire going can cause loss of control and a fatal accident.

RE: Possible Routing

Recommend Havana to Dallas TX to Amarillo TX to Santa Fe NM then to Pagosa Springs CO to Durango CO to Dinosaur National Monument CO to Jackson Hole. A whole lot more to see than what you will see in Kansas and Nebraska and from what I can see about 800 less miles. I have always had good luck with using Google maps for routing a vacation. Then zoom in on where I plan to stop and search RV parks,

RE: Clean water

We use this filter whenever we hookup on the road or even when we fill the fresh water tank at home. We will taste the water after hooking up at the campground and if the water tastes good then we drink it. If it does taste funky then we turn the water off at the spigot and fill a container or two from the fresh water tank for drinking water and coffee. Then turn the spigot back on for flushing and washing.

RE: Class C opinions

Beside the ratio of the wheel base to length that pianotuna mentioned the other potential problem with longer class C RV's is a under loaded front axle. If the front axle does not have at least 80% of its rating you will have handling issues. Any weight behind the rear axle takes weight off of the front axle and the farther back the weight is, such as rear storage compartments the more the effect.

RE: Where, how to store a folding tricycle?

Gladys purchased a Terra Trike Rover last month and LOVES IT!!!!!! In fact we did a ten mile fun run with her riding it last weekend. Terra Trike has a roof mount system for it. But we opted to go with a Draft Master Rack from Atoc that carries it and my bike. Atoc also has a roof system. Terra Trike Atoc If you wish for more info from either of us private message me

RE: Along the Mexico border???

No matter how close the road is to Mexico, it is still in the US. Don't worry. What other US National Monument other than Organ Pipe Cactus has had nature hikes with some law enforcement officers hiding in the hills and closely watching the two-hour nature hikes, while another pair of armed rangers would follow the tourists closely from the ground and that is not for bears or cougars. And this quote from Organ Pipes own website " illegal border crossings and activities, including drug smuggling, occur daily" On our trip this summer when we leave the Phoenix area we will spend an overnight in Deming NM with the next stop at Balmorhea State Park. Will fill up just north of El Paso and not stop unless from a breakdown till Van Horn TX. the stretch Of I 10 between El Paso and Van Horn is not where you want to stop.

RE: surge protector?

Have had ours save us more than once. Still scratching my head over two different campers told me the reason they did not use them. First said his wife would be to upset if it kept shutting off the electricity to there motorhome like mine was doing. Found out later he had to replace or repair AC, microwave, refrigerator and TV. Another time when I told the people next to us in the campground, they were sitting outside but there AC was on, that our unit was shutting down due to low voltage he told me that he did not need a unit like ours because he had a meter inside that told him what the voltage was. Still do not know how a meter inside when your outside does you any good.

RE: Flagstaff to Phoenix on I-17

RE: Anyone familiar with I40 through NM and AZ

Again do not know how many miles you want to go in a day but check out Lake Havasu State Park near the London Bridge.

RE: Almost complete restoration 89 Fleetwood Southwind

The way I look it a new RV payment would be a MINIUM of 400.00 a month do not want to even think of what full coverage insurance and tags would be. And still have repair costs. With that in mind I can spend $4000.00 in a year for repairs if needed to keep my RV going and still be ahead. And in the 4 years we have had her have not spent near that. To each his own.

RE: Asheville NC to Sangta Fe NM

Leave Santa Fe go to Chama NM from Chama NM to Alamosa, then to Monument Lake Resort from there to Trinidad Co and follow the Old Santa Fe Trail to Independence MO then to Branson MO then home Google Chama NM and Highway 12 the highway of legends. Monument Lake Resort is on that Highway.

RE: Patk and Campgrounds with RV age restrictions.

I guess I did not make my request clear enough for some people or they really do not care so let me try to clarify it!!!!!!! JUST list any RV Parks or Campgrounds that you know of that have a restriction on the age of the RV if you have opinions on this subject go to a different topic or start you own. I know it will not be complete but it will be better than nothing. And calling does not work I know from experience/

RE: They damaged our new car installing the base plate

Are you saying the cooler line replacement was $1120 at auto dealer? General RV is paying the damage repair- at what cost is beyond me. The base plate install and break away cable cost $1120. They discounted it a $100 for my troubles. I am confused your upset that after General RV made a mistake they stepped up and are paying a dealer to repair the damage and also gave you a $100.00 discount. And when in the previous issue with the refrigerator they again stepped up and installed a new refrigerator at no charge to you not a used one equal to what you had but a brand new unit. To me they seem to be a very responsible company that when mistakes happen they correct the mistakes. Personally I take your experiences with this company as an endorsement for there company. As a person with many of years of retail management I would put you on the list of customers that I would refuse to serve. You remind me of the old joke about customer service asking a customer what else does the customer want since they have already replaced the item, refunded 125% of the purchase price, and fired everyone involved?

Age Restrictions

It would be very helpful to all of us that have RVs over ten years old to know if a campground or RV park has an age restriction in your information on the park /campground . There is nothing more frustrating than arriving at a campground or RV park at the end of a long day to find out you can not stay because your RV is not new enough to stay;.

RE: How old???

Well since ours in 28 years old and planning a 4000 mile + trip this summer. And we are aware of age restrictions at some parks and we do not stay there. The only time we have had a problem with age was at Napa Valley Expo had read there rules and no mention of age restriction but when we arrived the camp host told us that we could not stay because of the of the RV. When we told him there was no mention of it in the rules he went and got the rules that " he had to go by" and when it was pointed out that there was nothing in those rules either he then read the rules he was supposed to follow and then let us stay.
