RE: parking with front wheels off the ground

I can't see where it would do any good, I would never do it on my DP. Posssible damage?? Don't know. I would ask for another site or go on down the road. jmac

RE: Newport, OR to Portland

I would do Lincoln City, then 18 w thru McMinville, see the Spruce Goose, pick up 99w, connect to I-5 near tigard. I would avoid going thru Salem if possible.Again , if not in a hurry and don't care about seeing Spruce Goose, go all the way to Astoria or at least Seaside and Cannon Beach then cut over on 26. safe travels jmac

RE: The drive from Fresno CA to Port Angeles WA

The drive you indicate looks fine to me. Once you turn off at Olympia, you'll still be on good hiway, not interstate. I would only add if you have time go onother 70 miles to Ozette,from Port Angeles, if you enjoy hiking, A 'boardwalk' type trail to the ocean, 3 miles each way, no hard climbs.you can do day hike or camp on the beach and return on oppsite route. jmac

RE: Diamond Shield

I started removing my Diamond Shield after it started peeling & cracking, as mentioned above a tedious job at best, small areas were doable, however I soon realized it was beyond my capabilities. Had body shop remove and buff out for about $400.money well spent. jmac

RE: Picked up the new DP today

Nice, Get it out on the road, so you can find those 'leaks' ASAP. Start making your list of items that need dealer attention, hopefully it will be short. Good ole Washington, if your near open fields, place 'Bounce fabric sheets thruout ccoach, keep those pesky mice out of there.

Floresent overhead lights

I have several overhead lights throughout my coach,each about 22" in length. Double Florescent. I replaced one a few years ago, however it was twice as 'thick' as the others. Does anyone know if the 'thin' model is available ? Otherwise I will be looking for a new 'starter'/

DROID cellphone

I am switching to a 'SMARTphone', I have a ton of music in Itunes and on my Clasic IPOD. Anyone out there who can help me get that music to my new Droid. I know this is not 'directly' RV, but I am fultimer and I want to use bluetooth to play music when traveling. Elminated the bulky CD's. or direct somewhere for the answers.

RE: Best Sewer Hose

I use Rhino, mainly because they are so good about replacing 'defective' hoses. I have had at least two that sprang leaks. the covering just opened up between 'the springs. This occurred in AZ. But like I said the company has been very accommadating. I carry an extra 15' for those parks where needed. jmac

RE: Louisiana to Seattle, WA in March

IMHO, Stay south, go thru LA, pick up 210, it goes around most of LA, then head north on I-5, check the weather and pick your parks acordingly/ Not 'any' really good RV parks near Seattle. some membership parks, C2C, KOA in Kent,not recomended. And go to Pike Place Market on the waterfront. jmac

http://www.tworiverscampground.com/ this is where we stayed, we did TGOO in addition to The Parthenon, and had access to all the Plantation tour, not sure about Antique Archaeology. I thought it was a fine park. jmac

RE: Report from Distant Drums - Camp Verde, AZ

Well, at least they are trying to 'fix' something the customers have voice concerns, we like to stop there too. Sorry so many CDn's could not make it down. I like the park, for short visit anyway.

RE: Flying J dumps station

I almost always dump before I hit the road, many roadside reststops on westcoast have free dumps sta. I suspect also Flyin J/Pilot began to charge when abuse reached unacceptable level.....believe it, I'v seen people dump without using a hose and then 'maybe' hose the area down............some attitudes & actions are just unexplained. jmac

Next spring we plan to do Yosemite after a stop in Las Vegas, will be going north on 95 toward Tonopah. 40' DP, any suggestions for campgrounds & route. I imagine we will stay outside the park and dinghy sightsee. Will be going to Redding,Ca. after the N.P.on our way to our first stop for the summer near Seattle. Thanks for any suggestions.

Dinghy towing

I am looking for a new 'dinghy', SUV. I like the Ford Escape, Buick Encore, they tell me these are not towable flat four. however the larger Ford Edge and Buick Enclave are towable. Here is one of my questions ....What is the difference,Mechanicially, between these models?? IN general what determines towable flat or not???? Yes i am also considering the CRV & Equonox chev.which are towable.

RE: Gila Bend AZ to Puerto Penasco

We crossed about noon, no problem, spring breakers shouldn't be an issue, have your pet shot records,if you have handguns ,you can drop them off in Why at the general store .We stayed at the Reef RV park, which is a little ways out of town, but we didn't mind the drive into town, the parks in town are really tight,small moho should be okay in town.Only other consideration for us was ,Insurance. we had to purchase additional ins.
