RE: Hwy 550 from Montrose, CO to Durango, CO

DON'T DO IT! Highway 550, the Million Dollar Highway was featured on a TV show, the World's Most Dangerous Highways. It was many years ago that we drove that road, before the show, in a 38ft HolidayRambler with a toad. My knuckles are still sore. Sharp turns on a grade, no guard rails, narrow in places, trucks coming down the hill at you, as they know the route and travel it routinely. If you have a problem there are no turnouts, no viewpoints large enough for a rig. It is just not a fun drive. That said, once you take the long way around to Durango, like the I-25, do drive the 550 in the car. It is scenic, and the towns of Ouray and Silverton are fun. So, just my humble opinion from a long past very scary drive, just don't do it.

RE: November in Texas?

Texas is a rather BIG state, and RV site availability in the Northern part might not be seriously impacted. From my experience with the Northridge Earthquake, which affected a much smaller area, RV parks and hotels were in high demand for about 18 months for displaced families and service employees. God Bless Texas, and God Bless the USA.

Sales pitch

Has anyone purchased from or dealt with BlueDogRV.com? They claim a lifetime warranty. Somehow seems too good to be true. So, any comments. Thanks.

Shopped at Valencia CW today

I stopped by CW Valencia today to do some shopping and use my free money sent when I renewed. I must say, I was impressed. The isles were rearranged giving the store a nice clean look. Of course, that means I could not find anything, but the staff were plentiful and helpful. On the down side, the depth of RV items is still lacking for a go-to-first RV store. I needed a new propane hose and they only offer hoses for the newer tanks with external threads. Even if they cannot stock everything it would be nice if they could establish a central supply for those harder to find or match product. But that's not the point of my comments, I wish to complement the Valencia store for cleaning up it's act.

RE: KOA

We enjoy and seek out KOAs when traveling, especially when we take grandchildren. Planned activities, pancake breakfasts, well stocked stores, pool, spa, level sites (usually) and consistently maintained to standards. Sure, some are just adequate, most are nice, and some are exceptional. But if you haven't noticed the prices of everything is going up. KOA's often have significant staffing, and salaries are going up, and benefits are becoming standard. Anyway, I like KOA.

RE: Helping disabled wife and the law? Rest area sign.

Similarly, I announce myself when I enter a rest facility with my wife, or assist her at a store dressing room. American Disabilities Act (ADA) does give legal protection, but does not protect you/us from idiots. I've never been put in a situation like you describe, and a response of "thank you for your cooperation" has usually been sufficient.

RE: Hwy 101 In Oregon

Just drove that way a couple of weeks ago, no problem. Do fill up before the 101 or when you see a good size fuel stop. Access for big rigs are few and far between on the 101. There are enough, just start looking when you are 1/2 down.

RVIA Pomona too expensive

Just received my email invitation to the RVIA Pomona RV show. This year it will be $15 per person, it doesn't mention the parking at Fairplex which starts at $10 or more. With so many RV dealers in the Los Angeles area offering free "shows" or just having a regular presents, not sure how many will pay $40 a couple or more a family to walk in the heat and see 1,400 RVs, only a handful in the type of interest.

RE: Does anyone know of a program similar to Streets & Trips?

I still use S&T on my home computer and laptop. I keep looking but have yet to find anything as easy to use (I don't do change well). Since we use it for vacation travel, I just print out the final trip plan. We then navigate with our Verizon phone GPS program. Along the way we search with iExit and iExit Truck. Other programs I have seen at Rallies overlay too much information. I don't want MPG, $, etc. I just like the click on a location and add it to the destination. It would be nice if it actually gave the distance between points, but I still remember my basic math, so I can subtract without too much difficulty. Please post if you ever find the perfect S&T replacement. T

RE: Brake buddy keeps blowing cigarette fuse

When I had a BB I called and they sent a direct battery connection at no charge. After a year I still found the BB cumbersome so I now use ReadyBrake. But anyway, call BrakeBuddy support, they were very helpful.

RE: blocking phone numbers

The person who develops an effective screen will make a fortune. I get at least 6 calls a day on the house phone, and now we are getting a few on the cells. On the cell I block the number, but often I will get the same cold call later from a different number...I don't know how many blocked numbers I can keep in memory, might need a bigger card. It is a problem.

RE: Towing 40ft 5th on Oregon Coast Highway

The road is lovely, you should have no problem. Plenty of private campgrounds along the way, but the ones closest to the ocean probably will require reservations, or at least a phone call so you don't pull in to find them full. As for visiting the towns, my only complaint was that some of the southern Oregon towns have parking height restrictions, obviously aimed at RVs. Most of these towns have bus lots on the outskirts of town. Large fuel stops are few and far between, so don't wait until last minute to fill up. Enjoy.

RE: Las Vegas Casino RV Parking

Sams Town on Boulder highway would work, it is now a KOA. Also many hotels allow large vehicle overnight parking without hookup. So it depends on if you want dry camping or an RV park.

RE: Good Sam Roadside Assistance experience on May 5th.

Thanks, comforting to hear. We also have GS but thankfully never have needed to give them a try on the RV.

RE: KOA Petaluma....A mild rant

I understand your frustration. It bugs me to no end when employees challenge the customer. I was raised, and taught my employees, to know that the customer is always right until you can show that the customer is incorrect. When a product is mismarked at the grocery you expect to pay the marked price. With all this said, I do love Petaluma KOA, it is truly one of the gems in the KOA franchise.

RE: Durango RV Resort in Red Bluff CA

We camped just east of that park at Red Bluff RV a few times, most recently this summer. The Red Bluff RV park is about 1/2 mile east of the freeway, it is an older but well maintained park, nice pool, large grass sites, and the owners graduated from Granada High, my alma mater, not the same class, but what the hay. Durango RV park appeared (from looking from the freeway)to be much newer, with paved sites. Looks like a nice park, but it is adjacent to the I-5. We will be heading up that way in July, and I'll probably stay at Red Bluff RV again. Think it will be quieter.
