RE: Building a New Dog House/Cover Over Engine Compartment

The shorter doghouse appears to be on a newer raised chassis MH. Less of the engine protruding into the floor area equals a much shorter doghouse.

RE: Class C "Tow Mode"?????

We use Tow/Haul when in the hills, and for stop and go near cities.

RE: Late Oct. in Southern AZ and NM

Weather at that time should be daytime highs between 78-84 degrees. You may not be able to get away with no reservations in Arizona, as the Snowbirds have already begun to migrate at that time. New Mexico, not as much. One area that always seems to have some room is Casa Grande.

RE: Mexico without a visa?

For non-RV reasons I was interested in the answers. We have a neighbor, who is a great guy, but got into trouble when he was younger. So jobs with dental benefits are very limited to someone with a felony. Anyhow, his teeth aren't in the best condition (no, its not meth mouth) and after reading some articles about folks getting good dental care in Mexico, I wondered if we could be RVing in Yuma (for example) where he could get his teeth fixed and recuperate with us on the US side, and then drive/fly back home. Apparently he only needs a passport to return to the US, so I was hoping someone would have a story about if we met & escorted him back at the border and he had as much ID as possible, that it possibly could be done. Anyhow, that was my reason for following this thread. Thanks Your neighbor should not cross the Border without a Passport under any circumstances. A Passport Card can be used versus a full Passport.

RE: Tents at RV Sites

Our family camped at COE Parks for may years, and always had a couple of tents for the kids to sleep in. Our family of six had a 16' Aristocrat Trailer, so no way we were all going to sleep in the TT.

RE: 12 volt

Keep in mind that the 20 amp fuse may be for a whole series of lights.

RE: Well they are dying here but this Company is still trying

I want to know how they get 320 liters of fresh water last a month. That is just 84 gallons.

RE: engine removal on a Gas Unit

Normal is a very relative term. Parts are usually the pacing items when it comes to a rebuild. 1. Have they determined whether you need a short/long block? 2. Is the engine currently out of the rig? Make sure an have all of the accessories inspected. Starter, alternator, AC Compressor etc. have the transmission inspected while you wait.

RE: Do you have trouble with slides

Some have mentioned having more issues with slides that included the refrigerator due to weight. That said, engineering of slides has improved dramatically over the years. They certainly make for a much roomier experience. I would recommend paying attention to maintenance, and also look at what the functionality will be with slides in while traveling. With ours in , the only impact is a few drawers at the end of the bed cannot be opened.

RE: A ROCKY MOUNTAIN NATIONAL PARK WINTER OUTING

Love the post, and the TC setup.

RE: Toys (boat) and Class C

We towed our jetskis with our Class C for 16 years. It was a 26.5 foot Fleetwood Jamboree, with a fair bit of rear overhang. We used ramps all over the west, both lake and ocean. We did have to unhook from power/water/sewer in order to launch,mount it was not that big a deal. We would often leave the RV near the water all day, and move it back to the full hook ups after pulling the jetskis out at the end of the day. It sure beat sleeping on the ground.

RE: Yuma AZ to ?? Long Beach/San Diego area ?

We enjoyed Mission Bay in San Diego, but the RV Park itself was pretty much a paved lot. The surrounding area was amazing.

RE: New AT&T Unlimited Streaming

Some have mentioned losing their hotspot functionality with devices on this new plan.

RE: Fisher Paykel: any good?

Some seem to think that constantly power cycling the Fisher Pakel is hard on it's circuit boards. There should be a setting that has it off until turns on. This may extend the life of the unit.

RE: Give me your feedback - Dutchmen Aerolite Bunk House

The Expedition should handle 9200 pounds towing. The dry shipping weight of that TT is just under 5600 pounds, with cargo capacity of just over 1000 pounds. 400 pounds will be consumed by a full fresh water tank. Another 100 pounds of propane and misc fluids. You will have to watch your weight in the TT and the expedition.

RE: Small used Class C--good idea or false economy?

Full timing in a Class C can be a challenge. We lived in ours for 9 weeks once, and it got pretty small on rainy days. It will be easier with just one person. Limitations for us were the size of the holding tanks, and propane use when boondocking. A generator helps, even if it is a little Honda 2000. The house side of the C was pretty easy to work on.

RE: It's about to get cold....

Some caged 100 watt drop lights in those bays should keep things from hard freezing.
