RE: AZ this winter suggestions

Having never been to AZ I find it overwhelming searching for a place to spend this winter. We want a place that has most of the ammenities, pickleball being a priority, plus the usual, dance, craft, etc. opportunities. We understand it might be a little late to make reservations, but going to give it a try anyway. Open to suggestions from all those who have experience in that part of the world. Thx Lar Go to "www.goodsamcamping.com" and type in Phoenix and then Tuscon and/or any other areas/towns you want to "snow bird". Make a list of your "must have" amenities. Then just start looking at each of the RV Resorts/campgrounds web sites and begin a process of elimination until you find the one that best meets all your needs. Based on what you have said, "Resorts" will probably meet your needs. Make sure you compare your possible choices in the following areas: 1. price breakdown based on length of stay, who pays electricity. 2. deposit policy 3. choice of sites, you don't want a site that is available for only a short period of time, then requiring you to move to another site. Yes, you should make your reservations as soon as possible, many "snow birders" make them when they leave from the previous year. This does not mean you can't get reservations now, some RVers cancel and most RV parks are not %100 full all the time. Personally, I look for resorts that are located approx. 15 miles away from city.

RE: Changing primary email on Apple ID

Call Apple Care Tech Service 1-800-275-2273. The tech will walk you right through the whole issue. Tsk, tsk tsk. That's not how we do things here. We never go to the source but rather drag it out, on and on and on...... If experiencing long periods of frustration and not getting the issue resolved is your cup of tea-----then your way is absolutely the correct way:):):):) In order to play in the sandbox, you must play by the sandbox rules. To do what you are suggesting makes total sense & is completely against the rules, so you are now awarded one demerit :B Dakota- This is more fun than fixing the guys computer issue! I have the Good Sam Demerit policy which negates any demerits":):)

RE: Hartland ST235 80R 16 tires

OK I already have metal valve stems. Ill be checking on the G614's then THANKS X1, if you have any doubt about the capacity of the rims, personally I would bite the bullet and buy new rims for the G614. One less issue to worry about down the road.

RE: Need advice on travel plan.

Skip South side Grand Canyon, too crowded! Go to the North side out of Vegas. a Be sure and go through Bryce Canyon and Zion!!!! Absolute must!!! There is a large campground right on the north rim. Another near by RV Park is in Glendale. The north side of the canyon is beautiful. I would call and try to make reservations as soon as possible. Go to the RL Directory or use their book to get the names of the rv parks. Correct me if I'm wrong but the large campground right on the north rim does not have hook-ups as I recall? I believe the closest campground to North Rim with full hook ups is in Jacob Lake? Here are 3 RV camp grounds in the area you want with full hook ups: 1. Bauers Canyon Ranch 888-648-2564 2. Bryce Zion CG 435-648-2490 3. Zion RV camp ground 877-29-5756

RE: Hartland ST235 80R 16 tires

Hartland tires? Never heard of that brand? Google search showed that tire stories back east sell them. Never heard or seen them on the west coast. I could not find out who the manufacture was? Personally I have the LT Goodyear "G" rated tire and have had no problems. I tow a 13K 5th wheel. Go to Les Schwab, good service and warranty. You can go to any Les Schwab not just the one you bought the tire from if you have any problems.

RE: Advice for green newbies

Chuckster66-- Just an alternative "full time RV life". This could be a temporary or permanent plan depending on your medical needs relative to how much care you need. Just as a start I would be pick a winter and summer area ,RV Resort or park you really like. The idea is to just switch back and forth depending on the weather conditions. i.e. Winter in Ariz. or Indio Ca., and then Oregon the coast in the summer or some other state, area that is relatively cool in the summer. Cooler than Texas:):) This plan also allows you to take advantage of special (cheaper) prices for RVers that stay 3 to 4 months at a time. In Ariz., if I register for for Oct. Nov. & Dec. the resort will give me one extra months stay free. This will vary from Resort to Resort and location to location.This gives you the best of both worlds year round. This also gives you an opportunity to discover new RV areas, RV resorts you might like and eventually you will find a permanent RV home. Chuckster66-- With regard to medical needs and services you and the wife might need, places like Surprise, El Mirage, Phoenix in Ariz. has medical doctors and hospitals is abundance. Same for example in the Palm Springs, Indio and Hemet areas. When I first started "snow Birding" in Ariz, the first thing I did was contact a hospital and asked for the contact information for the type of Dr. I needed. I then make an appoint and established the Dr. as my primary care Dr. and then had all my current medical records sent to the new primary Doctors office. I also checked with the hospitals and Doctors regarding what insurances they would accept. My primary Doctor in my home town can also write a lab work up document for me to take to a lab in Ariz. and then have the results faxed back to my home town Dr.

RE: Mexican Border Question

Letter of permission for Mexico-- The only fact that I can be sure of is---Mexico-Baja is always unpredictable and inconsistent!!!! Just a side note, unlike in the USA, if you get into an accident and damage property, this is considered a felony and you could be in the mexican jail until they sort out who was at fault. This was the way it was 20 yrs. ago.

RE: Refilling laser toner cartridge

OEM toner cartridges are priced outrageous. I read nothing but bad reports on 3rd party cartridges. So........has anyone been successful in refilling their own cartridges with toner powder? Looks like cost is about $10 for the powder. LD Cartrides. 1-888-321-2552. I buy all my non-OEM cartridges from this company located in Long Beach Ca. I normally receive my order within 48 hrs. after I place an order. Prices are approx. %50 less than the OEM cartridges.

RE: TR: A Really Long Trip Report: N.California/ & the PNW

Long Trip- Thank you posting an RV story that was ACTUALLY, a informative story about RV travels. Some of the posts tend to be negative and complaining in nature. Once in a while some of the posts tend to be personal repetative venting that are RV related but are not actual stories of positive RV experiences.

RE: Mexican Border Question

Mexican Insurance- The issue is based on ownership. A vehicle that is financed, leased or rented is not the legal property of the you, the driver of the vehicle. You don't have legal ownership unless you have a pink slip listing you as the sole owner. Recommend you just call the finance co. of your vehicle, as for a permission letter to take the vechicle to mexico( I had to have my letter notarized). They will want to know the exact dates you are entering and exiting Mexico. Buy your Mexican insurance before you get to the mexican border ( it is a zoo at the border). I used Vagabundos in Rio Vista, Calif. IMHO, it is not worth the risk and potential for legal hasseles you could subject your self to if you are in Mexico without the letter of Permission.

RE: Terrible Experience

Thanks everyone for the feedback. I wanted to "jump in" here to respond to the speculation, with a goal of clarifying a few things. I have worked for Good Sam for over 20 years, and my primary focus is providing a world class experience for our roadside assistance members each and every day. I am very proud of what we accomplish every day for our members. No, we did not ship any part of our team "offshore". Our Roadside Assistance program is rated 9.4 out of 10 by Consumer Reports, far better than any otherany other RV roadside assistance provider. We have over 2 million successful roadside rescues to our credit over the past 25 plus years. While we are not perfect, our Customer Satisfaction ratings are in the high 90's and our complaint percentage per dispatch is less than 1%. We continuously strive to improve these results, and will continue to do so. Thanks again for allowing me to provide this feedback to you, as we are passionate about what we do for our members. As a 25 yr. member of the GSRS, this is the 1st time I have ever seen any of the above information posted. Assuming all of he above information to be accurate, this good stuff and builds more consumer confidence in the GSRS program.

RE: Need some help on 21ft or less travel trailer

Most TTs the size you are thinking about will be 30a/110v. Some bigger trailers will be 50a/110v. djgarcia, sorry I missed the used part. GWolf- thanks for the response, I should have also said that used Lance trailers are hard to find. I guess this speaks for the quality and the future resale value of the Lance trailers. Once people buy them they tend to hang on to them:)

RE: Need some help on 21ft or less travel trailer

Try and find a used dodge diesel truck 3/4 ton. Look at new or used Lance trailers. Lance has a variety of trailers in the size you want. I don't think there is a single Lance trailer that can be had for under the 15k limit the OP requested. They are nice trailers though. The Jayco Jay Flight SLX series has some nice floorplans as does Coachmen. Thats why I suggested new or used.
