RE: Best site to search for a site?

Been RV'ing part time for the last 7 years staying in military campgrounds 99% of the time. Looking for recommendations on a website or app that I can use to find public or private RV sites that CAN FILTER my request. Good Sam campground finder is largely a waste of time as I can't specify that I want 50amp or FHU or Big Rig friendly. I've heard of Passport America but I don't see a filtering capability. Are there others you can recommend or have had experience with? Thanks.... Here are 2 examples, Passport America and RV Park Reviews, of the same park we are visiting soon. Not sure what else one would want to FILTER for. Tombstone Territories Passport America Highlights All sites have a view of the Dragoon Mountain and Cochise Stronghold. Enjoy mild Arizona summers and ideal winters at 4000 ft. elevation. 102 40 X 80 pull-thru sites on 30 acres with 30/50 amps service, full hook-ups, and Wi-Fi. Sites are landscaped with desert plants, have concrete patio, picnic table and Cable TV. Park amenities: showers, laundry facilities, handicap accessible, large recreational building, indoor pool, spa, propane, ice, recycling center, Wide open country for horseshoes, ping pong, shuffleboard, hiking, nature watching, biking, and ATV riding.

RE: Small RV Park Casa Grande AZ

We are still at the Silverado RV Resort, our winter home, in Eloy, AZ 10 miles down the I-10 from Casa Grande. Tucson area is about 56 miles further down the interstate and Phoenix is about 59 miles the other way on I-10. In other words the Silverado RV Resort is centrally located for anything you want to look at.

RE: 7-8 ft of snow in the Sierras

No problem waiting out the weather, in S. Az, before getting back home again this year(and that would be April) . :)

RE: Leaving RV in AZ in summer?

I have a bunch of Park Models that I rent out here in Yuma . I turn off the elect, water for 7 months. I also leave 7 or 8 gallon milk cartons thruout the Park Models and Houses with water in them. I cover all the windows, toilets, all drains in sink, shower etc I have been doing this since 2000. Works for me. We also leave two cars here for 7 months. I make sure batterys are charged up, I disconnect the battery. Come back in Oct and cars start right up. The cars are under awning cover with 3 car covers over them and still get dust in and over them Good post...perfect!

RE: trip planner

How long has it been since Streets & Trips was discontinued? There are alternatives some being mentioned here.

RE: Best GPS?

I just retired 2 days ago and 2 management guys chipped in and bought me a Rand McNally RVND 7 RV GPS. You load your dimensions of your rig into it and supposedly avoids routes that you'd get into trouble with. I just charged it and and loaded updates and I'll be trying it out in about 2 days... retirement trip--coming up. JK Our Rand 7710 has been everything we wanted since we bought it in 2011...and more. If it ever crapped out I would get another in a heart beat!!

RE: trip planner

We usually don't go by miles...time on the road is our consideration. Like being at our next over-night by 4pm (cocktails at 5pm ya know) and typically leave by 9 or 10am. Sometimes we are on the road for a couple of hours and sometimes longer...there is no rush for us anymore. Safe travels....

RE: Fireplace fan issue

There is an instruction step by step on the Dimplex site to open the unit up and clean it. It collects a lot of dust due to the air it moves over time. I use high pressure air to blow it all off and the problem is solved. I have had to do this twice in 7.5 years of full time use (8 winters). Tip: Take a picture or two of the wiring before you unplug. There aren't many to remove, but you sure want to put them back correct. Will take a look...good idea on a pic.

RE: Fireplace fan issue

LOTS of issues with some of these Dimplex units. DRV replaced ours at the Factory. Really? Haven't heard of MANY problems and this is the first issue for us.

RE: Fireplace fan issue

Is the thermostat turning it off? Don't think so...you can turn the thermostat wheel and nothing really happens to change anything including fan speed.

RE: Fireplace fan issue

Starting to wonder if it needs a good cleaning with all the dust we get in S. AZ.

RE: Place to drop 5er when picking up DD at Seattle airport.

Could also just have her Uber someplace close that you could meet and not have to go through the hassle of all that. Just an idea. Take it or leave it. Or a cab!!

Fireplace fan issue

Turning on the fireplace everything is fine. After about a minute the fan stops therefore no heat blowing out. Any ideas what the problem/fix is??

RE: RGV weather

The other thing that numbers don't tell, but I noticed is Florida unlike Arizona and Texas stays warmer longer into the evening. Seems like once the sun goes down in Texas, it's time to move inside or get the portable campfire out. A simple function of cloud cover, elevation, and humidity. Low and humid stays warmer later in the day. High and dry cools off as soon as the sun sets. The RGV often has warm evenings. Have to also remember most of AZ is desert....typically warm/hot during the day and then the night temps can drop 30+ degrees in a hurry. Same in our home State of NV...high desert!

RE: RV parks in Minnesota

Thank you for the replies and recommendations. Our son, wife and our grandson live in a small town between Minneapolis and Rochester and ideally we would like to be close to them, thus it isn't important to be near either of the larger cities. Since you know what town you would like to be near I also suggest searching RV Park Reviews for something close. Safe travels.

RE: RV parks in Minnesota

Can anyone recommend a good campground between Minneapolis and Rochester (general area) for a fifth wheeler. Would like to park for a month or two. Thanks in advance. Mike I'm confused!!! It's only 86 miles between the 2 cities. Why in between??

RE: How to avoid driving thru Phoenix, AZ?

I-10 to I-8 to 85 @Gila Bend to I-10 to 303 to I-17 to Camp Verde. Another choice might be going thru Phoenix late at night or REAL EARLY in the morning. We try and avoid the Phoenix metro also if possible.
