RE: San Diego To mi choices

West Texas is pretty darn boring no matter which way you go.

RE: Water pump not working

Look to see if water is filling your fresh water tank. Sounds like an open valve to me.

RE: Front Mount Receiver for 2015 3500HD

I went to a welding shop and they built a custom one for me for $100.00. Look in the yellow pages under hitches or welding.

RE: kwikee step issues

It could be that you had a short to ground (worn wire). When the brown wire is grounded either by short or by switching it to ground the step retracts.

RE: Need Honeymoon Destination help!

On our last camping trip we spent two month celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary and enjoyed almost as much as our first years camping. Spend the time enjoying each other. Enjoyment of sites and campgrounds will come naturally. Do not place stress on each other trying to get to "some exotic place". I would recommend Lake Catherine as it is a beautiful park and is close enough to Hot Springs for other things to do. I don't remember any steep hills going there. You can take route 7 as a side trip to see the fall foliage. Good luck in your future.

RE: Toilet Odors

Where are the overflow holes? Inside the bowl, near the top.

RE: east of Souix City on hwy 20 overnite

I would highly recommend Scenic Campground which is just off of 20. It is on the river and in South Sioux City (Nebraska side).

RE: WA RV parks for Oct, Nov?

There are quite a few not far. Alder Lake is a nice park, but have to pick your sites carefully. Silver Cove is a very nice park near Mt St Helens. If you head out to the Coast, Grayland State Park or Cape Disappointment state park are nice. If going North, Pioneer Trails near anacortes is great. All of those parks have full hookups (have to check state park site by site), are clean and well kept. We have reviews of all these on our blog in my sig. I highly recommend Cape Disappointment, especially the costal sites. Be aware in Washington, when they say "Campground" they are usually referring to sites for small rigs; whereas, they refer to "RV Parks" for the bigger rigs.

RE: Looking for recommendations for inspection camera

Be careful with some of these cheaper ones and even some of the more expensive ones. Some of them have a mirror image and they are very difficult to use.

Toilet Odors

We had a SeaLand toilet that was putting up quite a stink, if you know what I mean. My wife put everything she had heard of including Tang to cover up the odor, but nothing worked for any period of time. Then I accidentally read in the manual that the two overflow holes have a trap in them that can dry out. Voila, works fine now. Thought I would pass that along for fellow travelers who hate to read manuals.

RE: Problem when traveling up mountains with Class A

I had a part of my exhaust brake break and block my exhaust manifold causing no turbo function.

RE: branson

My family and I have a cabin east of Clinton and drive that road about 5 times a year. It is very curvy and hilly between Clinton and Harrison, but it is scenic, the roads are smooth, and there are many passing lanes up the hills. From Little Rock to Clinton and from Harrison to Branson is all 4 lanes. I recommend stopping for breakfast or lunch at Ferguson's which is just north of Marshall. We have had no problems with a big motorhome pulling a toad through the north side of their lot. For a more adventuresome side trip drive down to Gilbert which is just east of Ferguson's. It has an RV campground and access to the Buffalo river. There is no off street parking except for the campground, but it is a sleepy little town off season and parking on the road is no problem. There is a WallMart in Conway, Clinton, and Harrison right on 65.

RE: Roundtrip PA to CA in the fall??

I will tell you the worst trip we ever had was from Gallup to Flagstaff on I-40 around Thanksgiving. That was driving in a whiteout. Go ahead and take it, but be prepared to hold up until storms are over and roads are cleared. My choice would take the southern route.

RE: Nebraska, Omaha to Custer State Park

Stay off of 12. It is in bad shape.

RE: Up coming trip to Wyoming

We stayed at Absaroka also and found it to be a nice park, but if I were spending a lot of time driving into Yellowstone I would stay in West Yellowstone, Wy. There is a nice park there, but I don't remember the name. The drive into the park is fairly short from that side.

water system not holding pressure

Does anyone know of a plumbing schematic used for fresh water systems? I have a valve which I must open to allow fresh water into the holding tank. When I close the valve I can bring in city water or pump water from the holding tank. Are there any check valves in the system? Currently I have to put a plug in the filling line to get the pump to stop so I think the valve is leaking.

RE: Lewis & Clark Trail

Cape Disappointment is a must to see. Great museum.

RE: Please - recommend cg Omaha/Council Bluffs, Nebraska

I would recommend Walnut Creek Lake and Rec Area in Papillion. Papillion is a suburb of Omaha on the west side, not far off of I-80.

RE: Rt 65 from Branson to Little Rock

If you want a short side trip go to Gilbert. It is where 65 passes Ferguson's just before the Buffalo River. It is about 8 miles off of 65 and is a little village where people have access to the river for kayaks and canoes. There is a RV park, a shop, and a restaurant in the village. River is quite interesting there and you can swim, hike or just pick up rocks. There are no parking lots, but parking on the street is not a problem.

RE: Seattle area and Pacific Coast

We took the ferry from Vancouver to Vancouver Island and it was $177 on their Wed and Sat discount fares. On the way home we took the Victoria to Port Angeles ferry and it was $325. Your coach is about 7' longer so you would pay more. A day trip to Victoria is not worth it. You will spend 3 hours on the ferry and 6 hours in que and customs/border patrol. My suggestion is to spend lots of time on the island or skip it. We spent 11 days on the island and needed 3 times as much, Three of those days were in Victoria and we needed a week or more. Our trip down 101 was nice, but the campgrounds are really full this time of year. By accident we found a campground just south of Raymond, but before South Bend. I don't know the name, but it was a catamaran building site and it over looked the bay. The cost was $20/night with FHU. Not fancy, but nice and cool with great view.
