RE: Washngton DC Campground

Cherry Hill campground was the closest we could find. You still have to take the bus to the main train terminal and ride the subway into town. If you tow a car, this would be when I would use it. To drive to the nearest subway train station. It is literally less than 10 mins from the campground, but it could take you an hour if you ride the bus. Very nice resort campground. Would highly recommend. If you go to Mount Vernon, DRIVE YOUR CAR (they have plenty of parking) Do not take public transportation. You will waste 4 hours of your day doing this. Everything else is fine to take the subway. Cherry Hill has a website. http://www.cherryhillpark.com/index.cfm

RE: Map routing on laptop

Thanks Matt and everyone else! I ordered Delorme GPS with Topo North America 10. I spoke with the sales rep, as I was concerned that this program may not be necessarily what I was looking for, and Street Atlas may be more in line. He indicated that I will be adding features that Street Atlas does not have, but the program is more expansive than Street Atlas. That is what I wanted to hear. I really enjoyed using Streets and Trips for all those years, but am looking forward to investigating this new toy.

RE: Map routing on laptop

What is the difference between the Delorme "Topo" and Street Atlas? I do like having the trail, lakes and altitude data as I frequent State and National parks, but I would be using the map routing for main highways primarily.

RE: Map routing on laptop

Is anyone using a laptop with GPS receiver and map routing software? I like seeing the map routing on my large laptop screen and ease of being able to zoom in and out as I want to. I really liked Microsoft Streets and Trips, but they discontinued this program. Is there a good alternative software program I can run on Windows 10? Do a google search for running Microsoft S&T on a Windows 10 machine as I know it has been done even though Microsoft says it's not compatible. I really want to stay away from Streets and Trips going forward since it is not being supported and I cannot purchase updated maps with POI. I really would like a good alternative to this. It seems like Delorme may be the answer. Thanks

RE: Map routing on laptop

Delorme Street Atlas for over 14 years..great program. Great add-ons at Discovery Owners Group and POI Factory So it looks like I will probably order this program. What is the process for adding the points of interest add ons? Is it a fairly easy process?

RE: Map routing on laptop

We've used Delorme Street Atlas for 20 yr. or so. You don't need internet to plan your route. Does Delorme have a GPS sensor, or can one be used to give real time feed?Why yes, yes they do: http://shop.delorme.com/OA_HTML/DELibeCCtpSctDspRte.jsp?section=10091 This looks like a good program. I just want to be able to update the road maps every couple of years and make sure the points of interests are up to date. Has this been your experience with it?

Hydraulic HWH Jacks in 2007 Damon Daybreak

I am having an issue with my jacks shutting down when the system is hot. When I have been driving the motorhome and park, deploy the jacks, they will start to deploy just fine and will work for roughly 10 seconds. I will hear a click in the engine compartment and jacks will no longer function, as if an overheating sensor is shutting the system down. The jacks will not retract either. The lights continue to operate on the control panel, but the jacks do nothing. When it sits overnight and has time to cool off, the jacks operate just fine. One item I should mention, is that I do not deploy the jacks with the engine on. The service technician told me today that I should be deploying the jacks while the engine is running. As suspected, the service technician at the shop today, cannot replicate this ongoing and frustrating problem despite the fact that I demonstrated a problem with the system last evening to another technician. His explanation for the problem I described is that I was hitting the buttons too fast and confusing the computer. Has anyone had these issues with their jacks?

RE: .

Unfortunately it does not sound like you have many options. This is one of those times in life where you have two roads to go down and neither one is a good one. Pay the money to have it fixed or let it sit, pay on it and hope one day you can get out from underneath it. Good luck with your decision.

Full body vinyl wrap

Has anyone used a full vinyl wrap on their motorhome? What should I expect for expense?

RE: How often do you change your differential oil?

Starting this year, after having to replace the ring and pinion, I am changing it at new intervals because of the condensation that builds up when they sit. I have decided to change it at least once per year. For the first three years I owned it, I did not even check on it. I had heard that condensation could build up, but did not realize the degree of damage that this can cause.

RE: F53 Rear sway bar bushings

Yes, it is probably the easiest job on a motor home to do other than changing the oil. I did mine. While you are doing that, do the cheap handling fix. Very simple to do.

RE: Wrangler toad

Yes you can tow it without auxillary braking just fine. My parents towed a Jeep Grand Cherokee with a 40'DP and I tow a wrangler. I can barely tell that it is back there. I do not know the issues of legality and probably most beat cops don't know either.

RE: Wrangler toad

I have a 2012 Wrangler, towed it about 4000 miles last winter to Colorado, through some steep mountain passes, etc. I have an F53 30ft motorhome. I started out with the supplemental braking and after about 500 miles decided it was more of a hassle than it was worth. Have not used the supplemental braking system since. As long as you are in the tow/haul mode and your rig is relatively lite like mine, your overall braking will take a little longer, but Diesel pushers easily take longer to stop without the tow vehicle than a relatively lite gasser with the additional 3800lbs.

RE: Atlantic Coastal drive from Jacksonville to New York

I'm odd like that. I tend to want to go north in the winter. Drove to Colorado last year at that time. Had a wonderful trip.

RE: Front End Alignment

The trac bars will help with the sway, but experienced significantly more improvement with the steering stability.
mc.cc 09/15/15 06:29pm Class A Motorhomes
RE: Front End Alignment

I had an oscillating feel to the steering wheel every time I hit a bump. It would feel almost out of control if the bump was large, and on one occasion had the death wobble. I added a trac bar on the front and rear. It tightened the steering up. I suspect the trac bar on the front was overkill, but agree with the rear trac bar. Definitely get it aligned before adding a trac bar though.
