RE: Winnebago Itasca Full Wall Slide Failure

What model years is the Schwintek rail system installed on the Winnebago products? I have an aunt who has a 2011 Winnebago product with, I think, a full wall slide.

RE: Dash a/c?

The water valve can move properly and still be leaking. Just place a pair of vice grips on the water hose on either side of the valve and block the water completely. This will determine if the problem is the valve. Mine did the same thing. I went to Lowes and installed a hot water shut off valve on the other side of the factory valve. During the warm weather months I shut the valve completely off. During cold weather months I open it up.

RE: Visiting Grand Canyon in July

One more thing. Reservations- Plan your canyon adventures (white water rafting, mule or donkey adventures, etc.) NOW! If you wait until you arrive, it will be too late.

RE: Visiting Grand Canyon in July

We went in July. We stayed at the Grand Canyon Camper Village right outside the gate to the South Rim. The daytime temps were perfect for hiking and outdoor activities at that elevation. One night, it was down in the 30's. Be careful, the wind can be quite impressive during the afternoons up there. Down in the canyon, you can expect temperatures into the 100's at that time of year during the day. If you plan on a hike, into the canyon, take plenty of water and pace yourself. We did not get a chance to head up to the North Rim, but I hear that it is impressive. Keep in mind. You can't just "hop, skip and jump" over to the North Rim in the same day.

RE: Branson

We stayed at the Wilderness campground while there last summer. We loved the location of the Campground to Silver Dollar City and downtown. Had a great pool. I only have one complaint. For some reason, we would get a sour milk smell or dumpster smell when the wind would blow in a certain direction. Our site was not close to any dumpsters. I am not sure if it was specific to when we were there, or if that is something that occurs routinely. Regardless, I don't think the severity of smell will disrupt the benefits of this park. Would recommend it.

RE: Natchez Trace PKWY - doable?

One of the best trips of my life in a motorhome. We drove from Natchez to Nashville in November 2010. Very relaxing and a lot of straight road ways on the southern end. The road gets rough around Jackson, MS and Tupelo. Even though it's against the law to drive commercial vehicles on it, the locals don't pay any attention and have ruined/rutted the road through these towns. Other than the traffic picking up through these towns, its not that bad. Plan on a very relaxing time. No white knuckle driving. :) If you end up driving into Natchez, I highly recommend eating at the King's Tavern.

RE: Potential Thor Palazzo Purchase

The purchase from Camping World should be fine, but I never had much luck with their service department. My experience with their service - Once my rig waited for two weeks waiting on service. When I called to check on it, they had lost the paperwork and did not even know they had it on their lot. They destroyed an entire door replacing the lock. My motorhome automobile insurance had to pay for the new door. They rigged some heat shield apparatus for a bad generator that they never figured out was bad. The heat shield, they had jerry rigged, almost came apart while driving down the road. If I had not stopped and discovered it, it would have taken out my rear left tire and skirting. Their service may have improved in the last two years, but I refuse to take it to a Camping World service department ever again.

RE: Potential Thor Palazzo Purchase

We too love the looks of the Palazzo, and are thinking about a purchase at some point. It seems that I remember a problem with the two rail slide system not being strong enough on one of the recent model year Palazzo's, but am unsure if it is 2015. It sounds like they have corrected this issue in 2016.

Planning trip to Death Valley California

I am starting the planning for a trip to Death Valley this December. Any advice on where to stay and things that we must do? Thank you!

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.
