RE: Rand McNally RVND 7710 7-Inch GPS vs. Garmin

We've had our 7710 for years and have never seen a freeze up like the OP mentions. :h Matter of fact never had any issues at all and the unit has all the features, and more, we wanted and with that...would buy another.

RE: Campgrounds in/near Reno?

Heading from BC to Reno in Sept. Anyone have campground suggestions in/near Reno? Are casino CGs as good as any? We're northerners and used to lots of trees. Is there such a thing as a CG there with maybe at least a few token palm trees? Or are we going to die from heat exhaustion in the wide open spaces? :B Our home base is Reno and the first thing I would ask is what are you looking to do in the Reno/Sparks area? If it is 'Casinos' you have options with the GSR Casino a favorite parking lot to stay at. Sparks Marina is nice and only a short distance a favorite of ours, Western Village Hotel & Casino. The 'Steak House' is one of the best in town, in our opinion 5 star. In any case if you want to be close to the downtown things eiher of the above are fine. If you want to be away from all the hustle & bustle yet only a 15-20 min. drive away our choice is Gold Ranch in Verdi just West of town. They have a small casino, good restaurant, fuel, nice sites with FU's and great views of the Sierra's.

RE: Walla Walla to Lakeview OR on 395

Thanks for the replies. We'll have 100 gallons of diesel on board leaving Walla Walla so fuel is not an issue for us.

Walla Walla to Lakeview OR on 395

We will be leaving Walla Walla, WA on the 30th down to Lakeview, OR with an overnight in John Day. Anyone familiar with 395 on that route?

RE: Gig Harbor, WA to Prosser, WA

I agree with enblethen's route. It really is the shortest and quickest. Hwy 18 can back up bad, I'd avoid it during the rush hours if you can. If you take off about 9-10AM you're probably in a bit of a sweet spot. But if there is an accident then it's a crap-shoot. Try the Waze app on your smart phone, it can d good job of alerting you to traffic back ups and give you alternatives. Do be aware that Prosser like where I live is heading back to triple diget temps. Are you coming over for the Water Follies? Left Gig Harbor a little after 9am Thursday and the route worked fine. Thanks again.

Prosser has been very warm but our home base (when we're there) is Reno which gets hot also. We've been on the Oregon coast (temps in the high 60's) since June 7 and arrived in Gig Harbor Thursday. We knew getting back inland it was going to be a big change but we actually don't mind the heat...that much. :) Wasn't aware of the Water Follies but will look into. we will be at Wine Country RV Park for a week or so.

RE: AZ this winter suggestions

Take a look at Indian Waters in Casa Grande, AZ. It has all you ask for. FYI.....Indian Waters is in Indio, CA not Casa Grande, AZ.

RE: Bauer Keypad Battery change?

Have a response from someone in the Jayco Forums. As far as I know this model doesn't have batteries. Mine looks exactly the same and it runs off 12-volts from the coach batteries, supposedly hot all the time. Look in the hinge area of your door and see if you see two spring-loaded plungers and mating contact areas. That is how power is passed to the lock assembly, it happens only when the door is closed or very close to it. My reply; You nailed it. Cleaned up both areas to get better contact and works now...but will keep an eye on it and keys in my pocket.

RE: Hot, hot, hot in the West!

We've missed the 'heat'....so far. Been on the coast since June 4th and now on the ocean in Charleston/Coos Bay OR since June 7th. Yup...temps in the mid to upper 60's, mostly sunny and gorgeous. http://www.mytripjournal.com/images/websites/67/67749/20151650824004.jpg http://www.mytripjournal.com/images/websites/67/67749/20151620926160.jpg http://www.mytripjournal.com/images/websites/67/67749/20151630752511.jpg http://www.mytripjournal.com/images/websites/67/67749/20151741547501.jpg We are here until July 7th and then up the coast into northern WA before heading inland to experience some of that 'hot' weather going on.

RE: Lake Tahoe campgrounds

We like Tahoe Valley too just enough off the beaten path but easy to get anywhere. Another vote for Tahoe Valley. Our home base is Reno and when we go up to the Lake Tahoe Valley is where we stay.

RE: Mounting a Winegard Pathway X2

Didn't know you were talking about using a sat dish with a TC. Good luck and safe travels.

RE: Mounting a Winegard Pathway X2

I think winegard is being to narrow minded on this one. I don't want my X2 (when I buy one) sitting out on a tri-pod. I want to be able to set my X2 on roof or ladder rack where it is out of reach, out of way. But I also want to be able to clamp it down (or lock it to ladder rack). Even directions says it can blow over in 35mph winds, and we camp on beach a lot. Since you did not purchase the X2 yet have you considered putting up a permanent sat antenna on the roof instead horsing around getting a portable up and down on a ladder or roof every time you move?

RE: Best route from the Bay Area (CA) to Mammoth (CA)?

I would go 88 over to 395 and then go south to mammoth That would be my route also. 88 is a good road and we use when going from our home base in Reno to Jackson, CA and beyond.
