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.

RE: Does anyone have a site map of Grand Canyon Railway RV Park?

I prefer Circle of Pines KOA, just a couple of miles away. Very large pull throughs, lots of trees, heated pool, and much quieter. While your in Williams don't miss a trip to Bearizona the drive through animal park a few miles from the KOA and the Train. It was a fun filled day for adults and children alike. Take your time to drive through, and drive through again and again if you wish. We had the grandkids, drove through, went to a few animal shows, and drove through again. Even the lunch was good. Happy Trails.

RE: Motorhome hit in storage lot

File a police report, call your insurance company, and see if the insurance company would be willing to get a court order to see the video. It would benefit the insurance company as they could recover their hit&run uninsured motorist claim. Just think'in

RE: Roadside Assistance Renewal Question

RobWNY, Thank you for your post. I have looked into your account and you received a complimentary Good Sam Roadside Assistance Platinum membership in January, for your membership in the Good Sam Club, as well as having a policy with Good Sam Insurance. We sent you information on this on 1/9/15. The membership offer to renew is correct, but at a lower rate than the normal renewal rate, as you did not purchase the Roadside Assistance plan to begin with. Please let me know if you have any further questions. Nate K. Marcus' Rapid Response Team I think it is a pretty cool way to advertise. You were given the original trial offer, and the renewal is discounted. I'd call that a good deal if you want the coverage. I have Good Sam Roadside Assistance as it is as good as any of them.JMHO

RE: Former Rental RV? What say you..

What would you pay for an equivalent F350/450 truck? Since the rigs are rented without leveling system you might guess that some people parked off level, since it is easier on short stops, this could damage the Norcold or Dometic frig. That's the only RV accessory with a hefty price tag I can think of.

RE: Carrying Weapons North of the Border

Their country, their laws. Check with Canadian authorities regarding your firearms, and do follow their rules. JMHO

RE: Taking Bikes and Locking Them Up

During our many years of motorhome vacations, and with 8 children, we always traveled with a bunch of bikes. I can gladly say, we never had a problem with theft, although we did lock the bikes at night. Remember, chains and locks protect you from honest people who have a sudden lose of conscience. A thief will have a lock cutter or a battery cutoff tool and will be gone in moments. Therefore, in my mind, running a simple chain through all the bikes with a lock is the basic night time security. Individual locks and chains can be added for daytime bike rides where the bikes will be left parked during activities. JMHO

RE: What to do with burning camper

A sad video with a happy ending. Perhaps RV builders should offer a DVD with emergency exit instructions for the specific windows used in construction. It could be kept next to the other instruction sheets. No really a new idea, since my MH came with a DVD on the surround sound system and a DVD basic owners handbook. Just a thought.

RE: Tow Dolly Procedures At RV Park

I had my tow dolly for 25 years and it was the backing in spots that finally convinced me to flat tow. Not that it is difficult, just I was getting older. The basic procedure is to unhook just before or just after the site. Then decide will the dolly be parked in front on in the rear of the RV. If in the rear, push the empty dolly into the site and make sure it is out of the way. Then back in. If in front, back in, then push the dolly up tight, perhaps sliding the tongue under the RV. In both cases, the addition of a drop down wheel on the tongue is a really big help. The drop down wheel is available at Walmart and online. In all my years of MHing I have only once been asked to store the dolly off site. Outdoor Resorts in Palm Springs had me store the dolly in their trailer lot. It really was not a problem as they had a transport vehicle (small tractor) to take it to the lot and return it when I was ready to check out. Not a problem at all.

RE: Running 19.5" wheels; what about the spare?

Unless you really travel off the beaten path, 19.5 tires are plentiful. Granted, you may not be able to match your tires, but you'd surely find something to keep you on the road for the vacation.
