RE: Spokane Wa. area to Yuma or Tucson avoiding snow in January

We leave Wednesday for Casa Grande from our home base in Reno and like to get over the hill on 80 into CA to get warm. Hooking up with 99 to Lodi for a night then the 5 to Bakersfield then to Indio for 4 days before arriving in Casa Grande on the 17th until late March early April. We find this route works best for us avoiding the cold and possible snow going South through NV.

RE: Phoenix 17 truck route?

If you want to avoid all Phoenix traffic take Rt 85 south from Goodyear down to Gila Bend then I-8 east to Casa Grande. That said, unless you're planning on going through Phoenix at prime drive time, I doubt you'll have much trouble. An accident can tie the I-10 or 17 route up any time, but although there will be heavy traffic, we've found it moves well. That is the way we usually take to & from Casa Grande but thought we would try a different route which seems to cut off about 30 minutes. Think we'll stay with our normal route. A little longer time wise but we are not in that much of a hurry anymore and since this is our destination until late March early April we'll just enjoy. Thanks for the replies and safe travels.

RE: RV parks do not honor advertised rate when booking?

Over the years I've noticed this at most RV parks. When making a reservation you make it at their current rate for the dates desired. You often make a deposit up to 100%. When arriving you find yourself having to pay a substantial increase over the booked rate. The employee says rates changed since you booked. You have no choice since their written policy does state that rates subject to change without notice. Why do RV parks do this? Hotels do not, car rentals do not, airlines do not etc. The only way to avoid shock is to constantly check rates which often means calling...not exactly convenient. I've found this to be the policy at the majority of RV parks I've visited. Have others found the same? In a word....no...never experienced.

Phoenix 17 truck route?

Looks like the 17 is a truck route off the 10 which goes S around the airport before hooking up again with the 10 to Casa Grande. Miles and time look to be about the same either way just thinking the 17 being a truck route might have a little less traffic depending on time of day which for us coming from Indio, CA should be around noon.

RE: Route from Birch Bay, WA, to Casa Grande, AZ - Comments?

hooking up with the I-10 which will get you to Casa Grande thru Phoenix. Since our RV Park is on the West side of CG we turn off on the 85 to the I-8 and come in that way which also bypass the Phoenix area. Thinking now of staying on the 10 into Phoenix instead of turning S on the 85. Looks like the 17 is a truck route off the 10 which goes S around the airport before hooking up again with the 10 to Casa Grande.

Thoughts?

RE: Anyone use a Dish Tailgater?

We started out with the Tailgator a few years ago and it worked fine. Last year we upgraded to the Pathway X2 in order to get the 2nd hookup for the tv in the bedroom. Turns out reception is better, we get both arcs and no loss of signal (so far) in rain. Happy with X2 and DISH.

RE: Christmas in the rig

Dungeness crab is in season......... But very hard to come by up North from what I've heard. We like to get the Oregon coast (Coos Bay) in early June and the Dungeness are fresh and plentiful. The Fish Market right on the docks is fabulous.

Christmas in the rig

We leave our home base in Reno in 9 days (and counting) for Casa Grande AZ where we will be until late March early April. I have some ideas of my own for Xmas dinner but wondering what others that are in their rig over the next holiday after Thanksgiving have in mind?

RE: What's your favorite recipe using turkey leftovers?

Started our turkey soup last night by putting the carcass and various spices in the crockpot and slow cooked overnight (about 10 hours). Strained broth this morning took the meat off (set aside) the bones discarded the bones and added celery, carrots, onion, garlic, tyme, salt & pepper and cooking for another 4 hours. Then the meat and noodles go in for another half hour. Place smells great and can't wait for when it's all done.

RE: Air bags

We have 'bags' on our TV but don't use them. Why? We have the right truck to pull our rig. Just saying.... Just curious do you run 5psi when running solo in the bags? Well I was trying to make a point if he came back and said he ran 5psi solo. I run 5psi solo but when the RV is attached the pressure in the bags goes to 30psi and that is where I leave them while towing. That PSI does not change the ride height but does help with spring control. So while he says he does not use them I am thinking he does. Good point. Haven't checked bag pressure in years...my bad but will look. Thanks.

RE: How do FWs handle uneven terrain?

We've been on some 'challenging' roads even with the size of our rig but having 6" of clearance (and level) to the rails and going slow never had a problem. Key? Proper setup and going slow.

RE: Rand McNally or Good Sam GPS?

Click here for some info that may help with questions. Our RVND 7710 has worked better than we hoped for. Thanks for the link. Glad to see that the Rand McNally has some trip planning software. Sadly, it appears that their software is only available online. This could be a problem if you were somewhere with no good internet access. Could any of the owners of this device tell me if it can show how far it is to the next waypoint on a route in addition to how far it is to the end of the route? Thank you Yes, it will show how far to your next turn or waypoint and also how far to your destination all on the same screen....plus much more.
