RE: Will a RV GPS Help ?

My new coach has a Rand McNally and my old coach had a Garmin. I now use an iPhone because it is so simple and always current.

RE: Ford Transit or Mercedes Sprinter

I just put 5K on a Winnebago View and I found that it was as easy to drive as a pickup. Seats are comfortable enough to drive all day. It has plenty of zip and power. The German controls take some getting used to, but over all I think it is a good chassis. I have not driven a Transit to compare.

RE: Yuma to Apache Junction

Take I10 to Gila Bend then take 238 to Maricopa then 347 to I 10 then to 202 to 60 and 60 to Apache Junction X2....This is the way I go back and forth. Are these roads decent or do we bounce everything out of our cabinets?

RE: No water from fresh water tank

Thanks for the help. The winterizing valve was not positioned correctly and the check valve to the city water line leaked. Works fine now.

Yuma to Apache Junction

Looking at Google Maps it appears there are some short cuts on secondary roads, vs taking I-8 to I-10. Does anyone have any recommendations. We will be traveling on Sunday afternoon.

No water from fresh water tank

Maybe I am overlooking something simple, but when I turn on the pump for fresh water on a 2016 Winnebago View 24G I get very little to no flow and no pressure. I took the pump input and hooked a tube into a bucket of water and ran a tube out. Good flow and when the output was capped off the pressure switch worked. No signs of leak anywhere. Any suggestions?

RE: Trip Planning: The Perfect Family Trip 2016!

I just came across your thread and had to add my two cents. Have you ever heard of Ash Falls. It is an active fossil dig near Royal Nebraska. Ash Falls was created by the eruption of Yellowstone and the ash suffocated a lot of animals at a water hole there. It is very educational and it gives you an interesting insight into the power of the volcano that lies beneath Yellowstone. The route to Ash Falls is not too much out of the way and you can camp at Neligh City Park which is pretty close. Last time I was there camping fees were $12 for full hookup with free WiFi.

RE: Reflections on 6 Months of RV Research! ;)

Dean, When we first started camping with a TC, I noticed several big TT would come out on Friday afternoon, plug in there camper, turn on the A/C and we wouldn't see them until Sunday morning when they were packing up to go home. Now that isn't much of a weekend getaway as far as I am concerned. Your Casita will be crowded enough that you will be forced to enjoy the great outdoors. I would recommend joining a local camping club. Then you can sit around the campfire and talk about your next camper or how you pulled away from a campsite while still plugged in. There are lots of experiences to share. Have fun.

RE: Reflections on 6 Months of RV Research! ;)

After reading through 13 pages of this thread I noticed the focus was on purchasing a mh which turned out to be a TT. The analysis was good; however, there was little focus on a goal for which the camper was to be used, i.e. fishing, traveling, socializing or just escaping the city for the weekend. We started out with a TC so we could pull a fishing boat. It worked out great, but sitting all day while it rained in a dinette area was very uncomfortable. Later as the grandchildren out grew the need for fishing we started to travel the country and moved up to a Class A. It was great while we were parked, but as pointed out in several posts pulling a toad has its limitations. We still want to tour the country, but feel a Class C will allow us to travel without a toad most of the time, but will be able to pull a toad in times when we want to park down south. Our choice is a Itasca Navion 24G. I am now trying to downsize from the A.

RE: Towing Car on a Trailer

You are limited to pull through campsites as the Miata probably can't move the trailer around. After 1 year of pulling a trailer and having the hassle of finding a parking space for a trailer and the time it took to tie it down, I gave up and went to 4 wheels down.

RE: View/Navion Grey Water Pump-Freeze Protected???

I have been reading other postings and the slowness of the pump is a complaint.

RE: Winter Camping in a View or Navion

Thanks for the input. Is the pump for the grey water protected from freezing?

View/Navion Grey Water Pump-Freeze Protected???

I am purchasing a 2015 Winnebago Navion (24G) and now find out the grey tank must be pumped over the axle to drain. Is this pump in a heated area of the coach?

RE: Traded 2008 Winnebago 39W DP for 2016 Navion 24J

Doing the same thing myself; next week.

RE: Winter Camping in a View or Navion

For the most part we will stay at full service campgrounds. Good luck with that in January in Nebraska! When we come back to Nebraska we will park it in a shed and leave the heat on until we can winterize it.

RE: Salina, KS to Liberal, KS on #156

I've driven the route several times. Good roads, a lot to see, but you keep seeing it over and over again. I pushed it last time and got a speeding ticket.

Winter Camping in a View or Navion

We will be traveling in December and January to and from San Diego and know we will hit some cold days. How is your experience with these MH's. Is the heater adequate? How fast do you go through propane? Are there any problems with the water systems. For the most part we will stay at full service campgrounds. Your input would be appreciated.

Omaha to San Diego for Christmas

We are taking our MH to San Diego and back over Christmas. Any suggestions for routes to take to miss bad weather and what to see enroute would be appreciated.

RE: Fridge On or Off?

I run mine on propane, but turn it off when parked in a filling station or on a slope. The life of a propane fridge will be significantly shorten if run off-level when not moving.

RE: Opinions on View or Navion 24G

Hubby and I have both a 45' bus and a View. Both are great but for different uses. If you are planning on using the View for traveling but returning home between trips, I think you'll be very happy. Although some do, I would not recommend the View for full time living. Do you tow the View behind the bus? At one time I was looking at towing an ERA behind my bus.
