RE: Route from Sacramento, Ca to Medford, Or

Easy drive, with some long steep climbs along the way. Never had a problem with the previous gas RVs and the present 360 diesel RV, always towing a car. You won't maintain highway speed, but it is a beautiful drive, so going slower gives you a chance to enjoy the scenery.

RE: Northern California in late May

I would take the 99 to South Yosemite, I like KOA Maraposa/Yosemite as a basecamp. Then continue up the 99 with a stop at the wineries at Lodi, The Jackson Ranchero RV park casino is lovely and central. Then take the 50 to Reno, come back on the 80 all the way to the 101. Then up the 101 through the Redwoods, Benbow KOA in Garberville is excellent and the restaurant at the Benbow Inn is wonderful. Lots to do and see with lots of choices of routes. Enjoy.

RE: Why I hate KOA

I seek out KOA's because at very least, they are consistent. Some are exceptional destination resorts. Petaluma, Benbow Valley, Circle of Pines in Williams, San Diego, and Santa Cruz/Monterey are but a few of the true gems in the franchise. This week we were returning from the FMCA Rally in Chandler and decided to stop at the KOA in Kingman, AZ for an overnight. Kingman, really, I certainly did not expect much, but is was NASCAR weekend in Las Vegas, so an early arrival was out of the question. The Kingman KOA was certainly pleasant and friendly. We were escorted to our site. The site was gravel, clean, almost level (acceptable) and the hookups were excellent. Good electric from newer posts, easy access water, clean sewer connections. The dog run was clean and large enough for some exercise. We did not use the clean pool or the well maintained miniature golf park, and we did not use the spotless laundry. As for the WiFi, even at resort parks, the WiFi is shared by so many that it is often almost useless. We travel with a Hot Spot, so I don't bother with the park WiFi. $47 or $50 a night for a secure, safe campsite, maintained and functioning utilities, and amenities available, even if not used, seems reasonable to me. Happy Trails.

RE: where to go in socal

RE: Tow Speed excess!

The Navigation system on my Tiffin has a memory. During the walk through explanation of the system the instructor accessed the memory to show that the top speed the rig traveled with 90mph. I never drive over 60+ with 55 to 60 being the sweet spot. GUESS WHO. Oh, and the driver signed onto the hands free cell use, which is good at least he was not holding the cell phone, but if anyone was interested it identified the driver. No one cared, not even me. Great coach.

RE: Yellowstone questions

Enjoy. We like Jackson, it is a lovely beautiful town. We stayed at the Virginian RV park on both trips, it is a small gravel full hookup lot at the rear of a small, nice hotel, right in the heart of Jackson. It is all about location. Yellowstone is wonderful. Plan on at least 4 days of touring, at very least. We have stayed at both Grizzle RV and KOA West Yellowstone. Grizzle is right at the park entrance, well groomed, but with few amenities. KOA is a great KOA, large sites, heated pool, gym, small restaurant, and the preferred sites have concrete tables and benches and an adult swing bench. Really, just nice. Its been a long time since we were at the Black Hills, but it has great memories.

RE: Posted Message Not Posted

I have found that when the internet is busy, like on holidays, it takes longer for my posts on many sites to, and if they don't go through completely they are lost forever.

RE: Sanitize or replace old camper fresh water holding tank?

There is an FMCA National Rally in Chandler next month, starting March 6th. Day passes are offered. With about 1 to 2 thousand RVers and a large display from vendors it might be a great place to talk with people who are or have done rebuilds. FMCA.com., you don't have to be a member.

RE: CG wifi or Cell hotspot for privacy

JMHO: There is no privacy. It is only paranoia if it isn't true. Just don't post or publish anything you don't want to be made public. By using a secure WiFi network you are making access more difficult, but on the other end the store, the intermediary, the bank, etc, are being hacked regularly. Get into the habit of checking your online accounts regularly/daily.

RE: Coachnet

I received a better price from Good Sam for a 3 year contract. Both Coach Net and Good Sam use contract service providers. Service will only be as good as the location and the provider. We were left on our own by CoachNet, which is why we have Good Sam. In my opinion your paying for a phone tree, so price matters.

RE: Yesterdays Puerto Penasco Border Crossing

When we went 2 weeks ago the agent, very young kid, asked to look inside. Didn't check papers, dog certificate, anything. Just wanted to peer inside all thee RVs. Very polite, no hassle.

RE: Locked keys in the trailer

I too keep a door and ignition key in a non-locking compartment, hidden and secure. We were at the beach with the family and friends when on of the children must have pressed on the lock before leaving the coach. Shortly thereafter we found we were locked out. As luck would have it, the bathroom window was ajar, and we were able to shove one of the children up and through the window to open the door. Glad GS came to your rescue. It is always nice to read a positive post.

RE: Extended Warranties (Again)

Just remember, whatever warranty you choose, you must follow all the rules. Prior authorization is a must. You probably cannot do any of the work yourself.

RE: Extended Warranties (Again)

Wholesale warranties has an excellent reputation as an RV company. They have been a fixture at many RV rallies and shows. When I had a warranty problem, and they were the agent, they went out of their way to make sure everything was completed to my satisfaction. Helped make the claim, followed up, called me regularly to make sure the work was progressing. I could not have been a happier camper (well maybe if it didn't break in the first place). I won't try to compare the to companies, since I have no experience with GS warranty.

RE: 101 northern Ca.

Actually, Benbow Valley KOA RV park outside of Garberville is really lovely. Used to be a private resort, then became a KOA, but there is still a high class restaurant at Benbow Valley Inn, and an adjacent golf course giving the KOA privelages.

RE: Caming World 21 Days Free Camping : Yeah, Right!

It's not just Camping World. Many dealerships will off trial memberships at local or chain resorts with your purchase. It's advertising, and for some good will. If you go to RV shows, or Rallies, you will also find membership campgrounds offering all types of promo programs to try a campground. Again, for some it is wonderful, for others, not so much. I bet getting you to use the freebee by a certain date is similar to the first 50 callers getting something special. Don't throw the certificate away, if you want, call them this summer when you want to travel and ask that they honor the certificate for a free visit. I sort of think they will. Naturally you will need to take the tour and have a 90 minute presentation about the wonders of membership. Again, for some this is great, obviously, because there are so many membership parks, for others, it is just not the right thing. Enjoy your new RV, and Happy Trails.

RE: Anyone else not full timing because of the grand kids?

Yes. Although we both enjoy travel and would travel more our lifestyle is based around a close family and extended family group. Even a 3 month trip to Alaska would have us missing too many family events, grandchildren events, etc. Although I do not question those who enjoy full timing, the concept is so foreign as to be unimaginable for us.

RE: Inverter ?

If you travel a distance during the day and like to stop for a snack or lunch at a rest area an inverter, even a small inverter is nice. A small inverter on a line with heavy enough wire can work a toaster oven or a coffee pot, or run the TV while on the road for the kids/grandkids.
