RE: New F-53 Chassis Mods for new Class A

Making the mods will make the ride so much better. Also, have the 4-corners weighed and adjust the tire pressure accordingly. Just cost us $ 7,000 at Henderson's Line-Up in Grants Pass, OR.

RE: Anaheim RV Park

We like the Anaheim RV Park due to it's location. However, in two weeks we are going back down for dinner at Disneyland and decided to stay a few miles away at Orangeland RV Park.

RE: Class C temp parking

For the heck of it I Googled "Suffolk, VA Vehicle storage ordinance". The only two things that came up were "Vehicles parked on grass" & abandoned/inoperable vehicles". Nothing about RV storage on private property. You might go back to the city and see if you can read through the code, or try and look it up on-line.

RE: steering stabalizers

We had ours upgraded at Henderson's Line Up in Grants Pass. No sales tax either.

RE: Used but almost new price opinion

First I would use www.nada.com Then I would take the MSRP and deduct say 30% and offer the lower of the two and see what happens. Low ball your offer since it is an older model that is just sitting there and then see what they come back with. DO NOT GET ATTACHED and remember that you can walk away if the deal is not good enough.

RE: Self driving RV...and as always, Canada leads the way

My wife's car is a Tesla with the Auto Pilot. I am telling you that it is still in Beta testing, it is really amazing and reacted in one incident faster than me when a pick up cut us off. It is not perfect, but darn good. Freightliner is testing an 18-wheeler on the roads of Nevada with auto pilot. Driver must be at the wheel in case of an emergency.

RE: Suspension upgrade

The overall upgrade has really improved the ride. Rocking has been greatly reduced.

Suspension upgrade

For health reasons my wife could no longer tolerate the rocking motion of our 2013 Class A Allegro Open Road 36LA 37 ft on a Ford F-53 chassis. We opted for a hail Mary to try and reduce the suspension motion and the solution has resolved about 80% of the rocking. These upgrades work for Diesels as well as pick ups. We used Henderson's Line up in Grants Pass, OR based on comments on this forum and other reviews. Their service and knowledge was outstanding....not cheap though. For about $7,000 they replaced or added certain components. Test drive to evaluate the suspension and then installed a Safe-T-Plus steering control, Installed a front sway bar, and an auxiliary rear sway bar and replaced all of the shocks with Koni brand shocks, and installed a Supersteer rear track bar., then added Sumo springs front and back. They also performed a 4 corner weigh. This took two days and at the end of the first night we picked the coach up and went back to our campground. Returned it the next day prior to 8 am. Wife is happy and thinks she can tolerate the remaining motion for 6 hours. Has done 7 hours down the I-5 California torture track....

RE: Smell of mold and must

https://wiki.ezvid.com/best-moisture-meters?id=bng You might try one of these and see what it shows on the walls. You might call and independent company that deals with water damage and have them test the interior for mold in the air. And then proceed from there.

RE: best place to stay when visting yellowstone

In Cody, WY we like the Ponderosa campground. Do not miss the wild horse preserve outside of town on the BLM land. To visit Yellowstone National Park we like Grizzly RV Park in West Yellowstone, MT.

RE: C.G near San Francisco

Check the reviews at rvparkreviews.com. We like to stay in Greenbrae, Ca at the Marin RV Park. Nothing fancy but convient.

RE: Yellowstone in late July with no reservation--Am I crazy?

I would recommend that you stay in West Yellowstone, MT and drive in. With the loops and the way they are set up I felt it was more convenient to stay outside of the park and not have to un hook and move around. We stayed last summer at Grizzly RV Park.

RE: Crime at Emma Wood and Rincon

I just used www.crimemapping.com for the Emma Wood area of Ventura, CA and over the summer there were no crimes posted for Emma Wood or Rincon.

RE: Self defense while traveling

Knock on Wood!!! We have never been in an unsafe situation while rv, ing. That being said, we do alot of hiking and I think it is time to buy a couple of cans of bear spray that could have the same type of protection without the hazards of a handgun.

RE: Class A purchasing help - input requested & welcome

Grass Valley, CA has DeMartini RV. I highly recommend them as a dealer for both new and used.

RE: California coast RV park near dog beach?

Huntington Beach has a dog beach near the pier. The closest state campground is Bolsa Chica State Beach. During the winter months the City of Huntington Beach, CA has a campground in the city beach parking lot.

RE: Need Help with a Route

I-10 would have the least amount of snow....anything else higher more of a chance especially crossing the Sierra's. Now the warning.....El Nino is 90% chance of occurring probably starting in January 2016....That means a lot of rain for California, Arizona....epic amounts up to 50 inches. This is going to make for some rough travel so be prepared to hold up if necessary.
