RE: Propane..unlawful to have fridge on while moving

Many commercial vehicles (think catering trucks and frozen food delivery trucks) operate with propane. Years ago, in the 70', with the rationed gas, I had a propane operated car. Going over federally controlled bridges, and through tunnels there is signage prohibiting propane (RV tanks are excepted). When they had inspections over Boulder Dam, RV propane was excepted. I think the response to the article originally posted misinterprets a Canadian regulation.

RE: More RV Regulations

Let me get this straight: You can be homeless, living under a bridge, and vote, get food stamps, get medical care, and get a California drivers license, along with who knows what else. But you cannot retire and live comfortably in an RV traveling around the country. A politician can move from one county to another,or from one state to another, just by renting a "loft" so that he/she can run for office in the district. But us common folk cannot travel for pleasure. Think carefully who you vote for:) I'm voting for the crazy guy, perhaps you have to be crazy to make sense of government regulations. (yes I know there is more than one crazy guy, but I don't want to make this thread political)...:)

RE: Good Sam Roadside Assistance Cost Increase

? I received a renewal notice for $139 platinum. I don't need to renew yet as I still have better than a year on my card.

RE: Flying Flags Solvang

I believe it's in Buelton! I used a synonym (def: a word you use when you can't spell the word you want):B

Flying Flags Solvang

We'll be at Flying Flags next weekend. See you at the Spa. Our Allegro will be parked next to an Eagle 5th wheel. Happy Trails. PS. My adult children will be staying in the house.:)

RE: Towing a minivan on a dolly

A recently thought about towing my mini-van Sienna and did a bit of research. Ended up purchasing an Explorer as a toad, kept the Sienna for home. Anyway, the wheel placement on a van makes for a problem on turns...everyone seems to like the Acme Dolly for a van. I called Acme, nice people, and they assured me that the low platform and fender profile was perfect for a van and it was in the weight class. Good luck on your search.

RE: Visiting the Redwoods - suggestions

Benbow KOA, really a wonderful place, in and around Garberville. The is the heart of Redwood Country, and a tour of the historic redwood sites is just a short drive away. Drive through tree, Redwood camper, Trees of Mystery, and a bunch of stuff I remember from post cards and Disney programs as a kid. Benbow KOA is a good basecamp. Nice campground, excellent restaurant at the Benbow Inn, golf course attached if your into golf. Not far from the Willits train to Fort Bragg. All fun.

RE: Small Class A or Class C

In my mind it is all about the floor plan. Class C does offer that lovely queen or double bed up front, a bed in back, and the dinette.

RE: 30 amp rv

Yes, just tell the park you are 30 amp. You can also tell them you are a new RVer and ask for assistance with your hookup. Most places will be willing to give you a hand. Also your new neighbor will offer help if you ask. Your Rig is set up for 30 amp,so just plug into the 30 amp socket. The plugs are different so you can easily spot the correct socket. Always flip off the shore power circuit breaker before plugging in...shock protection. Then flip the breaker back on. It is not a bad idea to pick up a household type plug adapter (20amp), you can put it between the 30amp plug and a standard household socket. Nice to have when visiting friends if you want to tap into the garage or backyard power. With the lower amps you will have to restrict your power usage...no a/c, no microwave, but you can use lights and coffee pot and stuff. Don't feel shy about asking fellow campers for assistance. For the most part we are a friendly bunch. Happy Trails.

RE: Rest Stop Shenanigans

I think I would have called 911 and reported a possible scam in progress. Then I would have gone to the necessary room if necessary. At least a CHP unit might be dispatched in case the people decided to get pushy. In Calif there is no reciprocity for your CCW.

RE: body repair between Ventura and Paso Robles

Final Touch in Santa Clarita, Absolutely. They did body work on my Allegro, fast and perfect. Just a little bit out of the way from Ventura, but definitely worth the extra few miles.

RE: Anyone know anything about Global Pharmacy?

As a retired pharmacist I would advise that you find a local independent pharmacy (or a really fantastic pharmacist at a chain) who will be willing to take the time to review medication options. Sadly this art is being lost as volume becomes the only way for a pharmacy to stay solvent. Anyway, the pharmacist who know if a generic is available, if other options like similar medications are available. The pharmacist my be aware of special programs offered by manufacturers for people unable to afford a specific medication. I knowledgeable, and willing pharmacist will even call your doctor and consult, with the patient's consent naturally, explaining the cost factor, and seek alternative medication choice. This type of patient centered interest is time consuming and certainly not cost effective, although it is very satisfying to the professional who has spent 6 or more years going through a tough graduate program, not wanting to count pills for the rest of their life. I suggest that you find an independent pharmacist and offer all your prescriptions as an incentive to create a patient centered medication program. I do know some chain pharmacists who will also give this type of care, because it is satisfying and gratifying to do so. Best to you and yours.

RE: Just joined GSRA

Thanks for sharing a happy story. As a comparison, AAA says in the contract you cannot use their RA service until you have been a member for 6 months (I think 6 months). I don't have AAA I also have GS.

RE: How about a shorter diesel pusher?

My Tiffin Allegro RED 38 is a lovely motorhome, great suspension, I find it to have plenty of power towing an Explorer over the California mountains. I believe they make a shorter version with the same basic specs also.

RE: Carrying a Portable Waste tank

I purchased one some 30+ years ago and used it when we took the Scout troops out for the weekend. We were the base, they slept in tents...unfair but it worked for me. Empty the blue tank with wheels is light weight. We only used it for gray water, I would think using it for black would really be messy, even with the best for care. It can easily be strapped to a ladder, across the tow-bar, or to a bumper. It is so light weight you can even stuff it between the bikes (assuming you have cheap family bikes). Happy Trails.

RE: SoCal RV Mechanic?

I found Always-On-Time auto and RV. They are a block over from the Saugus Café across the train tracks. Gary used to run Accurate Auto (or was it Action Auto) where they built the carwash. Anyway, the number is (661) 255-2896

RE: Driving from Bakersfield to Palm Spring

I agree with the 58 unless it is flooding down rain which makes the 395 ugly. The Grapevine (I-5) to the 210 is ok but the 210 can really get bogged down and I've been in some pretty heavy traffic jams. We go the 210 to the 10 often since our starting point is the 210/118 split. The 10 in the Riverside area is really in disrepair, so anticipate a rough ride and pack everything away. Happy Trails.

RE: Camping World is No Help after the sale!

Warranty work is usually covered by the manufacturer. With my previous 38ft MH driving to the dealership for warranty work was also a hassle. A local mobile repair company had no problem coming out and completing the warranty repair. Since the problem was rather major, having to do with the basement A/C the mobile service guy waved the $65 travel fee. As for your rant, I understand your frustration with a new RV, but really, they should pick it up? I think you are being a bit unreasonable. But hay, whatever. Happy Trails.

RE: Top of line Gasser Vs. bottom of line Diesel Pusher

Where are you going, what do you want to do, will you vacation close to home, will you travel the country, will you tow a small car, do you need to tow a large car (big family) or will you be towing your boat????? I have always previously had gas higher end RVs, (for about 30 years). The Holiday Rambler 454, the Pace Arrows, and the last an Adventurer. All great coaches. All served the family well. All were purchased new. Personally, if my choice was a new high end gasser or an older diesel, I'd take the new gas RV. I really like my current Tiffin Allegro RED (rear engine diesel)38ft. It would definitely be above your price interest range. You could probably get a really well equipped new gas Winnebago or Tiffin (or many other brands) at or close to your price point. Other than the MH being much noisier on the road, especially on hills, having a rougher ride, and having a smaller tow capacity, they were great as far as livability, and camping comfort. JMHO Happy Trails.

RE: Another oldie. Not mine

What a fun restoration project for someone with the time (and disposable income). Not sure I would want to vacation in it rather than a more recent rig with all the bells and whistles, but still. Anyway, thanks for sharing.
