RE: Mt. Rushmore & Badlands-Must-See Suggestions

Would highly recommend visiting Mount Rushmore in late afternoon. Watch the videos in visitor's center, hike the trail that takes you to the base of the monument, eat a snack and take a seat in the amphitheater to watch the night time lighting of the monument along with their very patriotic salute to veterans. It is both a beautiful and very moving program. Makes you proud to be an American and there's not many opportunities for that today. Agree... http://www.mytripjournal.com/images/websites/67/67749/2014210073315071.jpg http://www.mytripjournal.com/images/websites/67/67749/2014210073327027.jpg

Just get a real RV GPS and forget about trying to do things on a cell phone. Yes Google is good but if you have to take your phone out of your pocket every time you hear you have a change in routing or whatever it's more like texting while driving and illegal in most States. Here's one more... Cell phones you need 'bars'....GPS is Satellite and on all the the time.

RE: 2015 Jayco Eagle Premier

Weird post. The OP's been a member since 2006, but this sounds like a post from a brand new member that joined just to rant. Question to the OP, is this your friends 1st RV? It is a weird post and hard to read with no paragraphs...Geez!!! To the OP...why not tell your 'friend' to come in here and post so we can get 1st hand info?

RE: Mountain roads from Oregon to Reno

Thanks so much all. We are coming from grants pass to reno. From Grants Pass simplest and easiest is I-5 south to 89, to 44, 36 to Susanville, south on 395 to Reno. No fuel on route from McCloud to Susanville. Burney and Old Station have fuel just a couple miles off route. Only grade of any note after you leave the interstate is 44 leaving Old Station, about a mile of grade then mostly flat. Do not try 89 through Lassen Volcanic NP in an RV. Doable, but narrow and curvy. Alternate 36 from Red Bluff to Susanville. Long gentle grade then levels off. A couple of low passes. No fuel between Red Bluff and Chester. Agree totally..this is the best route! Another YES vote. That is the route we always use going back and forth to Oregon and beyond. Safe travels.

RE: If buying used, any era that might be preferred?

I've heard of frame issues and wonder if there might be an era when they were overbuilt rather than under. When buying used is there a "cutoff" for how old once you get back maybe 5 years? An era when quality is heads and shoulders above other biild eras? Given due diligence, can one expect a 92 to be better than an 02 or a 12? Of course understanding that old stuff needs maintenance and repairs. Is this a 5th wheel question, motorhome, travel trailer....?

RE: I found them! Sailun S637 235/80/16

They are not hard to find or get. Really? Every place I inquired about them recently when shopping for LTs just looked at me funny. Sailun? Like sailin a boat? Guess you need to find a dealer that knows about and wants to sell tires. When I was serious a few years ago about replacing the GY's for Sailuns I went into a Big O store here in Reno. They didn't have any in stock but called their warehouse/distributer over the hill in Sac. They had stock with recent dates and the tires were in Reno the next morning and on my rig by 5pm. Maybe the places you checked only wanted to sell what they had in the back room.

RE: Sisters, OR to Boise, ID

Have overnighted a couple of times at Burns RV Park and recommend. 20 is a fine road. Also stayed in Bend and Vale.

RE: Good Sam GPS

Looking to buy in a few days a GPS specifically for RV use. I'm leaning toward the Good Sam 7" RVND 7735-LM GPS. Love to hear opinions of this unit and any other options that might be in the $270-$300 range. Back to your question; Hope some of the answers have helped.

RE: Awning ties

Any suggestions for awning ties for my 2011 coachmen Freelander? Camping this weeken and it was very windy, retracted awning. Are there some better than others, I am looking at the Claw c200. Might want to ask the moderators to move this to the General section. This is discussion about campgrounds. You can let them know yourself by using the 'Notify Moderator' tool located in all posts.

RE: Good Sam GPS

... I probably will go with the Good Sam 7" RVND 7735-LM GPS rather than using a Google map ... It's not a Google Map, it's Google Maps which is an app that comes with Android phones. Since Google Maps constantly updates its map info as you drive, its map data is about as current as you could possibly get. As mentioned, it also incorporates WAZE technology which provides up-to-date traffic info. I've been using Android phones exclusively for my GPS for about 5-6 years now and would not want to go back to using either a laptop or a stand alone GPS. To each his own. I've looked at Google Maps and agree they are useful to some...just not me especially when I'm going down the road pulling my rig. I prefer to look at my 7" Rand sitting in the middle up on top of the dash instead of squinting at my little Samsung phone screen. For me it's called the 'eye test' and at my age the 7" GPS wins going away. My 7710 is updated enough during the year that I'm more than comfortable with whats ahead. The info on my 7710 is all I need/want...and there is plenty of info available. But again to each his own.

RE: Good Sam GPS

Headed to Marina Del Rey (LA) area. Not sure if you are in a hurry after the Grand Canyon to get to Marina del Rey but if so I can help you with a few overnights. When coming out of the GC on 180 you'll hookup with I-40W. We've stayed in Needles, CA which is about 230 miles and a 3.5 hour run from the GC. If you are an Elks member there is a Lodge with RV parking w/full hookups. We stayed there overnight last Fall on the way to Casa Grande for the Winter. If not an Elk there are many other RV Parks to stay at in the area. If you want to travel further than Needles on the 1st day there is a nice KOA at Barstow/Yermo, CA that we did an overnight at this past April on the way home to Reno. From the GC about 370 miles or 5.5 hours. The KOA is right off I-15 and to get there from I-40 is only about 5 miles or about 10 min. You'll want to be on I-15 anyway going to the L.A. area....if you want to go that route. Another choice for an overnight is in Hesperia, CA and the Desert Willow RV Resort. Very nice and the location may be convienient place for getting to your destination as it gives you possible choices. You could stay on the 15-S into the L.A. area coming in from the West (about 95 miles 2hours 10 min) to the 210 to the 60 to the 10 to the 405 and finally to the 90 into the Marina del Rey area or you could leave Heperia on the 138 to CA-14S to the 405 into Marina del Rey coming in from the North (about 110 miles 2 hours 15 min). All depending on traffic and I'm sure others more familiar with the L.A area will offer comments on the 2 routes. All routes and CG's (RV Park Reviews for more info on the CG's for overnights) will be on your GPS. Enjoy your trip and safe travels.

RE: Good Sam GPS

Check out Google Maps and save yourself more than enough money to have a great dinner out. You will also be able to get more current and accurate information about things to do and places to go with Google then any GPS will ever be able to provide. Having traveled full time for almost 20 years (actually moving nearly the entire time) and having used Garmin's since 2003 or 04 I can tell you that my current 2016 Garmin is no match for Google Maps (now powered by WAZE). Bill, I'll take a good GPS anytime over 'printed' maps.

RE: Suggestions Wanted for Park in Casa Grande, AZ

Saw where the temps in Eloy/Casa Grande will be in the 100's until September. We love the area in the Winter but could not live there year around. Hot enough in Reno during the summer....even at 4,400'.
