RE: Oliver Factory Tour: Pls Help Interpret My Findings?

Thanks so very much for gathering all of this information. This was certainly time consuming. Thanks again.

RE: Oliver Factory Tour: Pls Help Interpret My Findings?

We currently have a Class C, but I have given a lot of thought to the Oliver/Escape trailers. BUT, the wet bath really causes me to pause. So, I too, would say- could you ask the company if they plan to, or is there any way, to make a separate shower? Thanks.

RE: Some questions about a trip out West

Some more information. Yes, we still have the Lazy Daze. Up to now, we have not towed. We are planning to either tow on this trip or rent a car as needed. We were thinking that two months would be a good start to our first "big trip." We are just going to focus on the northwestern part of the United States at this time. We plan to head to the southwestern United States at another time. The reason I haven't done tons of planning for this trip-there is a possibility that our daughter would be visiting. She and her family (meaning the best grandchildren in the world) live in Australia and are coming to visit sometime next year. Not sure when. Naturally, if they come in August/September, this trip goes out the window until another time. Thanks for the suggestion of state and local parks. I never thought of using state campgrounds. Does two months sound reasonable for this trip?

Some questions about a trip out West

I am retiring early next summer, and to kick off my retirement, my husband, who has already retired, and I are thinking about taking a trip out West. We live in Pennsylvania. We would probably visit T. Roosevelt National Park, Glacier, Olympic, and Redwood before we started for home. We haven't decided what to see on the way home yet, but the journey home would probably not be as ambitious. We have been out West twice before-once to Yellowstone/Grand Tetons and once to the Utah/Grand Canyon area. We did each of those trips in three weeks. Now, my questions: #1-I am a planner and have always planned trips in meticulous detail. Before a trip like this, I would always have our major campgrounds booked (example-the national parks). This time though, we would like to take our time and travel without time constraints. Doing some research, it appears that the national parks have quite a few "first come, first serve" campgrounds, so I am thinking we would be good. BUT, am I right? #2-I was thinking that about two months would be a good time frame for a trip like this. Yes? No? Thoughts? Thank you.

RE: Campgrounds near lancaster

We have been to Lake in Woods. Also, to quite a few other campgrounds in the Lancaster area. I am going to say-no-there are no other campgrounds like Lake in Woods in the area. Lake in Woods is truly a resort. Tons to do and a lot of amenities. A place you could go (especially with the kids)for a week and never leave. Now, with that being said, we haven't been to Lake in Woods in several years. Our kids are grown, and Lake in Woods is a bit far away from Lancaster attractions. We tend to go to Old Mill Stream and Beacon Hill when go to Lancaster.

RE: Could someone help with a refrigerator issue?

Found the problem. My husband read all of the great responses here and decided to first take a look at the battery. And......the battery was low on water. Filled the water, ran the generator a bit, turned it off, and let the rv sit for an hour. Then, he hit the gas/start button, and the fridge turned on immediately. Thank you so much for saving us a trip to the repair shop. Kathy

RE: Could someone help with a refrigerator issue?

Thanks for all of the input, My husband is going to check the battery voltage, the wires, and everything else battery related. Thanks again for giving us help. Kathy

RE: Could someone help with a refrigerator issue?

Thank you. I don't think we have one of those "read the charge in the battery things/voltmeters?" If not, we'll get one and check. And, rats, the battery is only a year old. Again, thank you. I'll let everyone know how things turn out. Kathy

Could someone help with a refrigerator issue?

I was hoping that someone could help us with a refrigerator issue. My husband went to start our Dometic gas/electric fridge. He pushed the gas start button and nothing happened. No clicking noise (which always sounds when the gas starts up) at all. He waited a bit and tried again. Nothing. Tried again. Nope. Se, he fired up the generator (we are not connected to electric at home)and was able to get the refrigerator to start with the generator current. Once he turned the generator off, the refrigerator switched itself to gas. We left for a trip and had no trouble with the refrigerator for the rest of the week-end. It stayed on gas while we drove to a campground and then switched to electricity once we set up. Upon returning home, and once the fridge was off, my husband once again tried to start the fridge by pressing the gas button. Nothing. Does anyone have any ideas what could be wrong. Thank you. Kathy

RE: Small 5th wheel

Padlin, I have been looking on line, at the Escape fifth wheel. Problem is-the factory is in western Canada. I worry the bathroom will be too small. Would love to see one. The website says the closest one to me (with a person willing to show) is in Richmond, VA. Assuming you like yours?

RE: Newbie to RV-Life

Alex, My husband and I and our four year old daughter lived in a trailer (maybe thirty feet) for a year and a half while I finished college. We then stayed another six months in the trailer and added a baby to the family. We also had a dog. Would I do it now-no way. But, we were young and needed to survive on $400.00 a month. It worked for us. We didn't see it as a big inconvenience. It was just what we could afford at the time. Best wishes whatever you decide.

RE: changing overhead entertainment center to a cab over bed

When we bought our last class c, we wanted a unit with a cabover bed, but found a great unit with a front entertainment system. My husband is handy and we thought we could replace the entertainment system with a bed. BUT, just to be on the safe side, we called the factory and asked for their opinion. The factory told us to NOT do this; that cabovers were given different structural support than entertainment systems. Now, perhaps the rv that you are looking at is made differently, but I would check with the company.

RE: Beginning Search for Class C (drawn to 12+ yr old Lazy Daze)

Hiking1, We have a 2002, rear bath Lazy Daze, and we love it. There are times we discuss getting a newer model but we have never had any issues with our rv, so we keep deciding to hang on to it. It is wonderful. Now, we do keep it well maintained, which certainly helps.
