RE: Yosemite to Napa area.

Straight up the 99. When you get to Lodi get off the freeway and take the 12 through town, you can stop at the many Lodi famous wineries if you like. That takes you to the 5 and the west side of the Sacramento, then take the 80 west to Vacaville, a good place to stop and visit the GellyBelly Factory Tour, and then North to Napa. Or you can just go straight up the 99 to the 50 west which becomes the 80.

RE: Will a Common Size Freezer Hold a Frozen Pizza?

We would talk just about all of the frozen foods out of their boxes, tear off the cooking instructions and store them, then put the frozen foods in bags in the freezer. You can store a bunch more that way. The boxes waste a lot of space as they are usually designed for shelf identification in the stores.

RE: Not Able To Assist

Being unable to ascertain with a certain degree of accuracy I hesitate my verbal opinion. Where, When, What...on a road, on a trail,..could not come out now or could not come out ever...are you in danger, then yes call 911.

RE: Watch that bridge!!!

It has been posted in the past that even when the sign gives max height one should be careful as the road may have been repaved or repaired adding an inch or two to the base. Out here in the West I have only come across two crossing I can remember with 12.0 clearance...I went around.

RE: Roadside Assistance

Most definitely an Oooops. For years I have enjoyed both Motorhome Magazine and Trailer Life, and have read the "ask for help" section, as it is both informative and sometimes entertaining when you read between the lines. (JMHO). It would, in my mind, be informative and reassuring if the 'ADMINISTRATOR' could post resolutions to problems and complaints. Just an idea that has been put forth before by others being mentioned again.

RE: Best Route from I-40 to Momument Valley

Both are well maintained 2 lane roads (one in each direction). Desert scenery without many fuel stops, so fill up on the 40. We stayed at Goulding's RV park and took a self guided tour through Monument Valley in the Saturn Vue. The self guided and guided tour road is really a rutted jeep trail, so if you don't have a high clearance toad just take the guided tour. We had a fantastic time, traveling with friends. Goulding's also had a nice restaurant. Happy Trails.

RE: comparing 2 new DP's

I just purchased my first diesel pusher after 35+ years of gas motorhomes. The floor plan I purchased is totally different from what you are looking for, but the Allegro does have the Cummins 340 engine on the Freightliner chassis. Absolutely quiet driving down the road. I can have a conversation with my wife, I can hear the radio, and all this without my hearing aids in. Even going over the California mountains. I love it. Happy Trails.

RE: Winnebago vs Tiffin

My previous MH, which I truly enjoyed, was a Winnebago Adventurer 38ft, gas engine, and I kept it 11 years. My current MH is an Allegro Red 38ft, purchased in Oct 2014. I am really enjoying it too. Forgetting that one is gas and the other diesel, which give an entirely different ride and load capacity...The Tiffin floor plan was very well thought out leaving me with very little to do to "customize" the interior to our liking. A few clothing hooks, and an added shelf or two in a cabinet and we were ready to roll. Shopping for the new motorhome took almost 2 years. We really wanted an RV that permitted easy walking from the front to the toilet and frig while closed (rolling down the road). Many RVs required you walk sideways, and twist...us older people have a real problem with that. I also insisted on windows on both sides for the passengers. When traveling with the grandkids I want them to see the sights on both sides of the road...(Look At The Moose!!!) Tiffin provided for both, the Journey was a bit tight in the closed position. Others were impossible and impassable. The finish on the Winnebago can arguably be said to be "better" in that every wire and duct is hidden. The hide might be flimsy, but the camouflage is complete. In the Tiffin at the slides and in some corners you can see the workings...this might not be so bad if it comes to a repair. Service: To date, I have had two concerns regarding the Tiffin, how to work the TVs (all linked together by a central controller) and a weak cabinet support (easily fixed). In both cases I sent an e-mail to Tiffin and received a phone call from a specialist THE NEXT DAY. That is fantastic customer service. I also received a phone call from Bob Tiffin, the patriarch CEO, making sure I was happy.I would not hesitate for a moment to recommend a Tiffin. My Winnebago was a great MH too. Guess I'm not much help. But Happy Trails.

RE: repeated service issue

Am I missing something. The wiper motor is covered by the dealer that fixed it, Lesters, but you want another dealer or warranty service to pay for the repair. Shouldn't it be Lesters' responsibility or the motor manufacturer's responsibility to authorize out of area repair? I'm not sure GS is using "any excuse" not to pay a claim, rather they are using the specific excuse that it is covered under an existing warranty. I totally understand your frustration, it is just that it may be misdirected...then again maybe not. Hope it all works out, and Happy Trails.

RE: Leveling motor home in driveway

Diesel does not have park. Only air brakes...at least my Cummins. Also on my Holiday Rambler gas, park was not advised without the parking brake as it was only a single pin the gearbox. I'm no expert, not even well informed, but just passing on what I've been warned.

RE: The skinny on Extended Warranties

Doesn't really matter what I had. The plan is no longer available. The deductible rose from $50 to $500. Plans no longer offer "consequential damage coverage". Previously purchased from Wholesale Warranties. Great guys, and I still recommend them. Current plan is XtraRide, purchased from dealer as it was negotiated into the purchase price.

RE: Leveling motor home in driveway

Before I had my driveway re-leveled (tree damage) I had similar wooden ramps made from patio scrap 4x6 from a friend. Bolted not nailed, and lasted for years. My son-in-law made driveway ramps for me from 1/4 inch steel, he owns a welding construction shop, which are indeed great, except they weigh so much I need help moving them about, and he made a special dolly for me to drag them to the street. Yeah, wood is good. Remember, in a diesel, your air brakes are the only thing holding you, so make it secure, and large enough not to slip out.

RE: Grand Canyon Railway

Yes, very expensive. The drive to the South Rim from Williams is only about one hour, easy straight road, with plenty of parking at the park. Therefore, on our many trips to the Grand Canyon, we have never taken the GC Railway. But while your in the area to spend the money for a few hours or most of the day at Bearazona. Great open animal park.

RE: Medical Alert bracelet, necklace etc...

MedicAlert.org is a organization that was around when I was in pharmacy school. Yeah, a long time ago. My wife now wears a MedicAlert bracelet. I know from my years of experience with the Red Cross, and with EMTs, and from emergency rooms that the MedicAlert symbol is universally recognized. There are many medical tags on the market, but in my pharmacy I only gave out literature for MedicAlert, even though there is no profit in the referral. Just my humble opinion.

RE: Running Fridge while traveling

In SoCal in the summer I run the generator, the roof A/C and therefore the frig. If the weather does not require the generator I use propane. Since we like full hookups, the propane is only used for the frig on the road and cooking at campgrounds. Very occasionally we use propane heat. The RV tank usually lasts the whole summer season.

RE: Sequoia & Yosemite area campgrounds

We were very happy with KOA Mariposa/Yosemite.

RE: Roadside Assistance programs

I agree with a previous post: the service is only as good as the contracted service agent (tow truck) sent out to assist you. I had a bad experience with Coach Net and a good experience with Good Sam. Different types of call in different states. I'd go with Good Sam, just renewed.

RE: Warrantee on a used MH?

When we were looking this summer in California and Nevada, ALL previously owned motorhomes were sold AS IS. You were then offered an extended warranty.

RE: What about the "other" truck stops

I find truck stops are often gathered together like ducks on a lake. If that is the case I pick the one with the easiest MH access and egress.
