RE: Broke down days from home, what would you do?

ANSWER >> RV MOBILE REPAIR If you are in a CG ask the manager who they use for mobile repair. They come out to you, repair the RV and you are done and have a working RV. 99.999% of the time it is repaired right at your site within ONE DAY. Their trucks are so full of RV There is NO reason to go to an 'RV dealership' and/or leave your RV for months on end. None, nada, zip, zero reasons to use those whoremongers. :B A major drivetrain/mechanical breakdown could indeed take alot of time to get parts and repair, and certainly wouldn't be done in a campground by a mobile RV repair guy. X1 :). When I stop at an RV Park, the first thing I do is ask for 1. The name & phone # of the best Mobil RV service that comes to the park 2. Name and directions to the nearest hospital or Emergency clinic. Trying to find medical services at 2:00am if they are needed is not my first choice!!!!!

RE: Broke down days from home, what would you do?

What type of repair takes 6 weeks to fitx. :H According to several posts I've read, Camping World often takes that long. Just curious! If everyone quit going to Camping World for RV repairs and service, how long would it take for Camping World to change/improve their their service???????

RE: Broke down days from home, what would you do?

I read on here the other day about someone being broke down, and it was going to be 6 weeks before the problem could be fixed. I got to thinking what I would do. I'm a single, traveling with my dog, and I tow the only car I own. So, flying home, in my case, wouldn't be a good option, because I wouldn't have wheels when I got home, plus I'd have to get my dog home. Say it was a 4 day trip from home where one broke down, that would be a lot of extra driving to get home, and then have to go back a few weeks later to retrieve motor home. Would towing be option? or hiring someone to drive the RV home after it was fixed be an option? I have no idea what costs would be involved. I'm just curious what you might do, or suggestions you might have. Call Good Sam and ask them how they might help you and your RV get fixed and get back home. Ask them if they can find you another repair facility in the area you are at who won't take as long to fix your rig.

RE: 114 in weed Ca

how tough is 20 compared to 299 Hwy 20 to 101 is my first choice, easy road and RV friendly and much cooler temp. Hwy. 299 out of Redding is not a bad road but has some winding curves and climbs and more traffic. Check with Cal. trans to check for road contions and construction.

RE: Can we travel with fresh tank full? We lose half on the way.

Every time I fill up my fresh water tank I lose half of the water on the way. So when I get to the campground I top it off. My friend thought it was odd I had this problem until he ran out of water the next day. I think he lost water as well. My guess is that the water spills out through the overflow hoses when we go up and down the hills. Is this normal? Is there anything I could do here? I wonder if the trailer is actually made to travel with the fresh water tank full. Unless you are boon docking in the desert, there is little need to fill the fresh water tank more than a a 1/3 full. A full tank of H20 adds significant weight to tow around.

RE: What do you do to your house?

Snowbirds---- 1. Make sure your home insurance is up to date and paid. 2. Sign up for a Volunteer Police watch program to keep tabs on your home when you are gone. 3. Turn water off to your refrigerator ice maker 4. Purchase a commercial alarm system for your complete home. The alarm system should be throughout your home and connected to a 24hr. alarm security call center and your local police/fire dept. It is cheap insurance and gives you peace of mind. 5. make sure a reliable friend in town has a complete set of keys for your house. Be sure this friend has the correct pass word for you alarm system if they have to talk to the call center. 6. Put all your valuables i.e. jewelry into your safe deposit box. Good point about the insurance. I'm in snow country so when I'm gone there is no getting in the driveway. No, I'm not paying someone to plow it and know that I'm not there. I'll take my chances with not having it accessible for the locals to empty it out or squat in it. SO.......I went around and around with the insurance co because of it being snowed in. They would verbally say it's ok but they wouldn't give it to me in writing. One agent told me that properties that are vacant need a special pricey insurance or it's considered abandoned. I cant even remember all the stuff that they said but I think there are a lot of people around me who are not actually insured. It seems to be one of those things that no one wants to talk about but if something happened like a fire they may be surprised at the outcome. I finally got it insured with Citizens and have it in writing that it is ok for the property to be snowed in and no access to the house. I would be looking for a new home owner's insurance policy.

RE: Tow Service Recommendations

When we purchased our TT we got 12 months of towing assistance as part of the deal. It is now expiring. I was going to get the Good Sam towing service until I noticed that in the fine print I would be authorizing them to charge my credit card for any amount they deem appropriate to renew in subsequent years with no further notice or authorization from me. I don't think I want to give Good Sam unfettered access to my credit limit. I've also looked at Coach-Net but their web site seems to be pretty vague and wants you to fill out a form and wait for a call back. Anybody have any information about other services? I have had GS ERSS for over 20yrs. 1. It is an option to have "auto Pay" but not required. I have auto pay so I don't have to worry of allowing my RSAP to lapse and not have coverage when I am broke down. When you RVing for months at a time, it is not good to rely on your memory. I have auto pay 1 yr. at a time. You can have auto pay for 3 yrs. which will also reduce your yearly premium. 2. Call GS Emeg. road side service directly to get your questions answered directly. Don't rely just on info you get on RV.net.

RE: What happens when batteries are low in charge?

New batteries--------------yes buy matching batteries.

RE: What happens when batteries are low in charge?

Generally speaking, at 5 yrs. it is time to replace the Batt. I would replace both normally but espcially because the age of the second battery is unknown.

RE: Planning trip to Grand Canyon in November

Hi - new to all of this - planning to pick up our new (to us) travel trailer tomorrow and trying to plan a trip to Grand Canyon in November. We are getting a 2008 Jayco Jay Feather 25' and want to see the sights on our way out and back. We will be traveling from South Florida west. We know it's probably not the best time of year but the only time we can go.....Any hints, tips and suggestions are appreciated! Weather! Weather! Start checking the weather a month before you depart. Have a plan "B" set up. I prefer the north side of th GC

RE: Relocating to Arizona

If you are a Good Sam member, you might call them to see if they might have a recommendation.

RE: Fifth wheel tire replacement

Your tirel logic is right on the $$. The biggest size tire and highest rated tire that your rims can handle?? More is better! I buy new ties every 5 years??

RE: Just got AAA - Do I still need Good Sam Roadside Assistance?

AAA road side service- 1. Do a side by side comparison of services provided and limitations. 2. Does AAA provide the same services universally I.e. City to city, county to county, state to state, Canada & Mexico? Is their a mileage limitation for towing services? Will they tow both your tow vehicle and RV at the same?

RE: Missing something ... while leveling

Truthfully, it's a spot we'd been to before. We remembered how many blocks to use for the dually tires on one side and for each front. Nevertheless, I thought I'd see how perfect we got the level. I usually use a bubble level, but I couldn't find the tiny thing. No worries, go to the backup. But, it wouldn't work! On the plus side, I found my regular one and we were perfect. Take a look at this picture of the backup and look at what is missing. Time to check all my backup items. :) http://i1301.photobucket.com/albums/ag116/shoot1st007/Web%20Pictures/20160716_095944_zpspfbwacmv.jpg width=600 Suggest you throw that away. Buy a carpenter's level 3 or 4 feet long, lay it on the floor in the kitchen on its side. This will tell you how level your trailer is from side to side and front to back at the same time.

RE: Best camping in CA? Bang for buck?

From Nov. to April is a great time to be in the desert.

RE: Best camping in CA? Bang for buck?

I'm in CA in monterey and everything is so expensive. Where is there decent cheap camping where I can stay around a month without paying an arm and a leg? (Looking for around 500/month). Don't want to be in the desert. Any suggestions? Desert areas are best price choices. Look in areas in the country and small towns. I like Anza Borrego , south of Indio. Stay away from any ocean areas. Stay away from any KOA's. Look in central calif. rural areas.
