RE: SF-Golden Gate Bridge north

I've gone that way many times, we like Petaluma KOA, even with a 39 ft and toad the bridge is doable...not fun, but I've been in much worse.

RE: TOAD Braking System Question...

I like my ReadyBrake system. When you are driving the Rocky's is is more than a back up brakes become a real comfort.

RE: Expired Warranties

I can see both sides of this argument. When the original warranty ends it is over. However, in an RV it is possible the item was never used, or used for the first time many months after instillation. If the problem is due to a manufacturing defect, perhaps, just perhaps, the manufacturer will consider repair. And then there are the people who just want everything all the time. Someplace in-between reason may exist.

RE: Do you carry a spare tire?

I carry an unmounted 22.5 spare in a bay. This started with a trip to Mexico where I was concerned about finding a spare. I took the spare my friend with a similar RV took the serpentine belt. In your class C, I suspect you have 19.5 tires, which are much easier to find on the road. If you had a blowout you could get a "truck" tire for short term replacement. Short term because the ride is definitely not as smooth, I tried once and ended up trading out the tires. Guess it depends on your budget. If you can handle the purchase of a new tire on short notice, and you are short of space, you probably can get away without a spare.

RE: toad is dead

Check the recent tow guides from Motorhome magazine and FMCA. I believe all or almost all the Chevy products are towable, and many of the Ford cars. Good luck, but I have read have a note on the purchase agreement that you will be using the car as a toad, that way if the manufacturer changes the rules you can make some type of claim.

RE: California 101 to Yosemite

The least stressful route would be to pick up the 80 around Valajo east to the 99 then south to your town of choice. Taking the 20 thru Napa is lovely but twisty. Highway 49 is a fun trip south but you have some grades and turns. Really depends on your comfort level.

RE: Port Angeles to Portland

The 101 is an easy two lane road and a lovely drive. One of our favorite stops in Rest-A-While RV park on the Olympic Peninsular, the park is not much, but the location is fantastic.

RE: Campground Question

It's not right, but it happens. On the flip side, if I am leaving a park early, either because we are bored, the weather changed, or our plans changed, I will always stop by the office and tell them so that some other traveler can have the site. I don't anticipate a refund, most parks and hotels have a no-refund policy for early departure, but on occasion I have been surprised when offered a refund or credit. It's just being nice.

RE: 2014 Chevy Equinox LTZ

If your looking for a new towbar anyway, consider the ReadyBrake Brut system. I like mine, and there is no box to move about. Just sayin. Still towing my Vue.

RE: Towing a Mini Van

You write light...I bet it is over weight for the MH rating, it might even be over the 5000lb of the hitch rating.

RE: Best RV park in Jackson, WY

We just made reservations at the Virginian, this will be our third trip over the years. It is a (or was last time)a gravel parking lot type campground behind the Hotel lodge. You have access to the lodge pool, laundry, etc. The advantage is that it is in town. Up close and personal to all the tourist attractions. Sometimes we like to be remote, sometimes not...this is a not trip.

RE: Dash radio died

Mine has a rest whole in the face, just to the left of the buttons. The unit went dead, as you describe, and I was told to use a paperclip to rest the system. It worked, and still works fine. Hope this helps.

RE: propane/exhaust smell from fridge

Hope it is not the odor of the coolant!

RE: For what it's worth...Flying J and Pilot

OK, so employees who were given too much responsibility with too little oversight decided they could pad their income. The company will pay the government a really big fine to make it all go away. The public gets very little if nothing in return. But the government is happy. The significant part of the report is that the corporation was not involved in a plan to cheat the system.

RE: Warrenty Company

I'll try to be constructive: I have used wholesalewarraties.com for many years, and have found them to very helpful when I had claims. With my first claim, they walked me through the process, check in regularly to make sure all was progressing. In a later claim, where there was some static in the process they helped get the ball rolling again, and the claim was settled in my favor. There are many different warranties, covering only a few to many items on the RV. I believe the term is concequencial coverage, which is usually extra coverage, that covers things not normally covered when a covered item fails. Finally, You Must Understand And Follow All the Rules. Prior authorization is a must for all but emergency service. You cannot fix it yourself. And, you need to find a shop that is willing to work with the warranty coverage...make the phone calls, wait for the inspector on large jobs, and accept the payment scale. Personally, I have found extended warranties worth while, perhaps not always paying for themselves but keeping the cost of repairs to a controllable average. JMHO

RE: Oregon 101 drive with 30ft. TT?

Beautiful road, drove it in a 38ft MH with toad without a problem. Personally, the only part of highway 1 which must be avoided with a large vehicle is Big Sur area between Carmel and Morro Bay. I have not had any problem with any part of the 101. Sure, there are some turns in Carmel, and near San Francisco, but nothing to be concerned about. My favorite campground in the Olympic Peninsula area is Rest-A-While. Not much of a campground but a spectacular view in a quiet restful area.

RE: Full hookup questions

The 6 or 10 gallon RV water heater tends to get the water very hot so when it is mixed with cold water for showers we find there is more than enough hot water for two people to take rather extended showers. I usually leave my dump valves closed when we camp, as it permits a more complete flush. If we are using the washer, or entertaining and using the sink in excess I will leave the gray valve open. The black valve is kept closed and only opened when dumping, followed with a flush from the gray valve.

Jackson Wy to Logan Ut

On our return from Yellowstone next month I was considering a route; 189 from Jackson to the 26 to the 89 until Brigham City. The map shows lots of wiggly lines between Bear Lake and Logan. How is this route for a 40ft MH and toad, and a 36ft 5th wheel. Looks like a beautiful drive. Looking forward to responses from anyone who has taken that route.
