RE: RV Parks Near Mesa, Az

In that same area we will be at the Mesa/Apache Junction KOA for a week late April. Won't be spending much time at the park so it works for us.

RE: On-line reservation timing

I know you are looking for Utah but for Michigan State Parks the opening time is 8 am M-Sat and 9 am on Sunday all eastern time. It is also 6 months prior to the reservation date. That is Jan 17 is July 17th not 182 days before. If you try earlier it will not work. They now have a clock to tell you what the 'System Time' is so don't go by your watch or computer.

Testing annually after 80.

RE: Truck tool boxes

Another benefit to under the rails, could be a tonneau cover, for when you're unhitched. My tonneau is snap down, full cover and I have the above the rail box. They make one that is pretty tight to the box and covers all of the area. I agree you can't get a hard topped tonneau with the box above the rails.

RE: Is this eBay seller for real?

Can't remember which mfg has the mountians in the decals on the front panel. That might give you a clue.

RE: Licensing RVers---is it time?

Another thought - all of you saying you don't need it or want it might want to take a look at your own state requirements here. ... The regulations quoted, without reference, in this article are somewhat outdated since the article states Michigan requires the special 'R' group license yet the current law actually excludes (g) A person who operates a motor home for personal pleasure. Here and further defined Here The result is Michigan excludes RV's

RE: Roadside assistance

Haven't had to use them but glad to hear Coachnet is better for some. I've got them and will keep them until I need and they don't perform. I also know that all companies call the same tow companies so it actually can happen to all of them.

RE: Front Contour of TT

If you traveled half your time or 5,000 miles per year at highway speeds and the mileage increased 1/2 MPG with fuel at $3.50/Gallon you would save $84.00/year. I'd concentrate on the floor plan more than the nose configuration.

RE: Opinions wanted on tire monitors

We put TMPS on both the TT and TV and love seeing pressure and temperature while going down the road. Gives both a sense of knowing what is going on and seeing if there are any changes. A digital gauge also assured me that both the gage and TMPS were accurate. Both of my old pencil gauges were off.

RE: Early Stage Planning Clockwise Around the U.S.

2 through Michigan is a good road. Lots to see and plenty of campgrounds.

RE: Streets&Trips Alternatives

Also tried Delorme a and found it lacking. As to the campgrounds not being up-to-date, I download from POI Factory the listing of campgrounds in the US and import them to my copy of S&T. Still the best planning tool but I then use the GPS and local iphone apps for immediate navigation. I figure the main roads will not change and if I'm going to a specific area I use Google Earth to see exactly what is there and even how narrow the sites are in a campground. I've also double checked to see if a site is long enough to stop and not unhook. I'll keep watching to see who finds the next best item like S&T.

RE: Password Manager Question

I use KeePass. It's free and you can download it here: KeePass It has worked well for me. The best there is. I keep all of them on a flash drive using KeyPass and then have them always with me and not left anywhere.

RE: Should we drive from Lansing, Mich., to Tucson, Arizona?

Went to St. Louis, I-44 to OKC, I-40 to Albuquerque, I-25 to Las Cruse, then I-10 to Tucson. Was working there and the trip was great following part of Rte 66. Stop in Albuquerque and see Old Town and also the memorial in OKC, cadillac ranch in Amarillo.

RE: Water pump

Check if you closed the line that you drew the antifreeze with. If that is still open you will not be able to pick up prime. You need also to open the line from your FW tank to the pump I've done it before and still need to double check myself

RE: Travel trailer camping near Grand Rapids Mn

RV Park Reviews has several different ones that are rated from "Great" to "Think Twice Before Reserving". This link should give you all you need to make a selection. Two of them have sewer.

RE: Putting on Level Bubbles

I first leveled the fridge and then checked the stovetop. If there was not too much difference I used the stovetop as my guide. DW did not want eggs to slide to one side of the pan or have a cake with one site 1/2 inch thicker than the other side. Wanted to keep her happy.

RE: Do all TTs sway?

Hi, I have to respectfully disagree with many of the previous posters here. First off, to me, "sway" is any movement of the trailer that is independent of the tow vehicle. Any trailer that is on a ball hitch will naturally have some amount of sway given the right conditions (quick turns, wind, road conditions, loading, etc.). Friction hitches (i.e.,; the Reese and others) are for "Sway Reduction" (per manufactures description). They do not eliminate sway but just reduce the likelihood and severity of it. A "Sway Eliminating" hitch (i.e.; Hensley and others) does just that, it stops all movement of the trailer that is independent of the tow vehicle ("sway"). All forces acting on the trailer, that don't come from the tow vehicle, are transferred to the tow vehicle so the two units can only move as one. In essence, the trailer is connected to the tow vehicle with a solid beam for all conditions except when the truck initiates a turn. For the non-believers, all I can say is to try it. Safe towing, Steve X2
