RE: travelilng on Hwy 395

you can follow 395 to the canadian border its all good road. your interest should dictate which way you go. you could go a different way for years and not see everything in these 4 states Personally, I would take 395 to Reno I-80 then west to I-5 , go north to Hwy. 20 out of Clear Lake , go east to Hwy.101. Now you have a beautiful coastal route all the way to Oregon and Washington. Hwy. 395 at Willamite Or. has an over pass with a 12' 10" clearance. Check to be sure. You can also continue up I-5 to Hwy. 299 out of Redding over to the Calif. coast. At Eureka, go to the Samoa Cook House for a fantastic beakfast or dinner. Old logging restaurant originally for lumber jacks. If you are traveling in the summer or spring be sure and make your reservations early along the Oregon coast. Lots of Rvers.

RE: Slide out goes out but struggles and won't come in

The next time you bring in the slides, connect the electrical power cord into the truck with the engine running and then try to bring the slide in.

RE: 5th wheel to TT ?

In my experience, the critical piece in towing a TT is the hitch system. I used a Reese Dual Cam hitch system to keep the trailer towing properly, especially in winds and passing or being passed by 18 wheel big trucks.

RE: 5th wheel to TT ?

Why not a smaller 5th. wheel?

RE: Has anyone used Rain-Ex on the nose of their 5th-wheel?

I think a good wax job would be better. I use McGuires Marine liquid wax. Great stuff and really brightens the decals. Usually only have to do 1 wax job a year:)

RE: American Southwest trip thoughts

What are the thoughts on the below itinerary? What changes if any would you make? i.e. Different parks or time. We have 2 or 3 extra days to fill, where or how would you fill them. Here are the overnights and duration Starting Northeastern Iowa Aurora, CO - 2 Nights - Visit friendsAlbuquerque - 1 night - Travelling Stop Grand Canyon - 3 NightsSedona/Flagstaff area - 2 NightsLas Vegas - 2 NightsZion -2 NightsBryce - 2 NightsChaco Canyon Historic Park - 2 NightsPueblo - 2 Nights - Visit friendsAurora, CO - 2 Nights - Visit friends? - 1 night - Travel Stop to home Notes: Not a big hiking family, limited by some family membersWould liketo see another native American sites Thank you for your help. Dean You have picked some interesting areas to visit. Your itinerary sounds a little like a a mini marathon:) I like the north side of the Grand Canyon, would skip the Sedona area, too commercial for my taste. I would add those 2 days to the Bryce and Zion parks. Unless you like the **** tables( I do) in Vegas, I would skip Vegas and add them to the national parks. Just my opinion

RE: Soon to be RV 5th owner

I've read both pro and con, the first 4 years we don't plan on moving the 5th, after retirement we plan on traveling more often. Winters in the south summers in the north. Have you heard anything about recreational by design? Don Knowing your 4 year plan and then your plans after is a benefit. I would still buy a 5th. wheel with the strongest frame.

RE: Soon to be RV 5th owner

If I planned to full time RV I would not choose a wood frame unless I had plans to just park the RV permanently park it in one place.

RE: 06 Dodge Diesel Engine Shutdown Adventure

Check all the rubber fuel line sections, maybe they have rotted from the inside and are blocking the fuel supply to the Low pressure pump. Worth a try.. Did they test for proper fuel pressures both high and low? Does your truck have that small cheap electric fuel pump on the back of the fuel filter housing like our 2004.5? If so, it could be that pump or the connections taking 12 VDC to the pump. My 2004 3500 Dodge diesel crapped out as I was going down the road. Towed it to dodge dealer, they removed the fuel pump from the block of engine and put it back into the fuel tank itself. No problems since:)

RE: Finally have made vacation choice!! Need Help, Please!

Just a general observation based on my personal RVing. 1. driving more than 4 to 5 hrs. per day will take a toll on your body and mind:( 2. After driving a series of 8hr. days you will find that that there will be a cumulative stress on your body factor. :( But all RVers are different:)

RE: San Diego to Ensenada, Mexico and points south

You couldn't pay me to go to Mexico these days although I went to TJ and Ensenada many times in the 60's and 70's X2

RE: San Diego to Ensenada, Mexico and points south

Anyone with experience driving from San Diego to Ensenada, Mexico, or even further south? I know there are terrible tales of travel thereabouts but wonder if it is mostly an urban myth. You decide:) 1. long lines , 1 to 2 hrs at the border Longer coming back to U.S. If you get pulled over by the U.S. agents for a secondary inspection for any number of random reasons, you can add another 1 1/2 hrs. at the border. 2. you have to buy mexican insurance. The laws are different in mexico. 3. get pulled over by the polica and you may end up paying a bribe to avoid court. 4. From San Diego to Ensenada you have to put up with masses of tourists:( Other than a few minor issues, you decide:):):) Skip TJ and Ensenada and go to San Felepi. Nicer weather, friendly people, you can find a RV site right by the ocean. You won't have to deal with herds of tourist, nice 5 blocks of little mexican stores to buy your mexican curios. Great shrimp. You will get a much more realistic experience of what mexico is really like.

RE: Best route to Hemet Calif. from I-10 using Hwy 79 .

Never drive the 79, but what's in hemet? We were considering a 2 month stay in Feb. & March in the Golden Village Palms resort. Any other recommendations would be appreciated.

RE: Best route to Hemet Calif. from I-10 using Hwy 79 .

Beaumont south to Hemet on 79 is OK. If you drive through Hemet at 25 mph on to Pehchenga RV park in Temecula you won't miss a thing. Nothing in Hemet worth stopping for. As towns go, Hemet is a small run down high crime rate town. JMHO. BTW I lived in So Ca for over 40 years. Hemet used to be a real nice little town in So Ca. Do you recommend the Pehchenga RV park in Temecula over a RV park in Hemet ? Or what park would you recommend in Temecula as your first choice.?

I was considering spending 2 months(March and April) at the Golden Village Palms RV resort for some warmer weather. We live in the northern part of the state by the Oregon border. Have you ever stayed at this RV park? Do you recommend a better one? What kind of crime are you generally talking about? Thanks for the info.

RE: Best route to Hemet Calif. from I-10 using Hwy 79 .

I take that route with my MH without any problems. Do not see any reason for you not to take it. On the map it looks like a 2 lane country road. Is that accurate Is there a better route to take?

Best route to Hemet Calif. from I-10 using Hwy 79 .

Is Hwy. 79 off of I-10 a recommended road for a trailer? If not, what route do you recommend off of I-10?

RE: is storing the TT (not travelling) slightly tongue-high ok?

I store my camper "hitch high"; it clears the ball when I re-hitch but more important - any standing water runs off and down the gutters. Been doing this for more than 2 decades with no issues - obviously everything is switched off (like the fridge) X2, use angle that will force the water to run off the roof.
