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.

RE: Question...

Instead of worrying about it, head out while the weather is still good, and fly home for Christmas to spend with family. :C Lot of snowbirds do it this way.

RE: RGV weather

Weather in S. Arizona has been just what we expected....again....since we got down here last October. Mostly sunny with above average temps. Had a couple days in the 50's, some 60's, and alot of 70's and 80's. Forecast continues to look awesome!! 4 or 5 days where we had some rain, all except 1 were just truck spotters. No big wind events, freezing temps or any signicant precip since we arrived last October. Typical sunrise... https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-UhpzeCRotQc/WgBwQCkWN-I/AAAAAAAAGik/IbBNmgBiuI8T-eroxJd2nLZOPTMALHpegCLcBGAs/s1600/20171106_063741_001.jpg width=600 https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-Z4a7GAV6yt8/WiWQ6rCfyFI/AAAAAAAAGw4/Fz0A6ddK0zE3ab93qhvyQEOohVObnXOswCLcBGAs/s1600/eloy_001.jpg width=600 Edit to reduce image size

RE: i-80 from San Francisco to Denver

I-80 takes two northward loops that significantly increase your distance from SFO to Denver. One is the swing north toward Winnemucca. The other is the swing north out of SLC into Wyoming. The result is that you're traveling along a big letter "M." It's much shorter to use US 50, I-15, US 6, and I-70. Yeah, the stretch through Nevada is desolate, but so what? You're in an RV. And Ely makes a decent waypoint to stop at, followed by a few hours of boredom to SLC. Yup it's shorter by miles but also takes more time to get there. What campgrounds have you stayed at and can recommend on that route? Just curious....
