RE: Diaper Pail for toilet paper disposal.

First, we use Costco's Kirkland brand toilet paper in the RV and have never had a problem. Several years ago in the Costco magazine they talked about how Costco formulated the paper to be RV and septic safe. As far as not disposing of the toilet paper. In most East European nations and South America nations, their sewer system cannot handle the paper. When in Greece, we stopped at a factory of religious plaques. In the restroom, there was a plastic laundry basket for the toilet paper, no lid. Hotels and the Greek ferry's did have small steel containers next to the commode with a lid. I have to admit that there was no smell and I am very sensitive to smells.

RE: Route 66

Just got back from doing the route from California to Oklahoma City, Ok. Plenty of RV parks along the way. We did take my wife's Tesla instead of the RV. Most of the towns are better with the tow car. Winslow, AZ and seeing the statute is best with a car. The books are written from Chicago to LA. Traveling in reverse was difficult. The books and maps I recommend. TripAdvisor Here IT IS Map series of Route 66, by Ghost Town Press EZ66 Guide for Travelers Also, www.azrt66.com

RE: Irritable Bowel Syndrome in Dogs

Obviously talk to your vet first. I have IBS and have had very good luck with IB Gard. Each tablet contains peppermint oil has is found in 20 cups of peppermint tea. I have found one capsule every two days has really helped.

RE: How to junk an RV

Up here in Rancho Cucamonga, Ca right off the I-15 we have a rebar Mfg. that has a huge lot full of cars, trucks and RV's that recycles them into rebar. You might want to give them a call. Perhaps they have a location down in San Diego. https://www.gerdau.com/northamerica/en# You can also type into Google San Diego, Ca junk RV. This is one that came up that states that they buy junk rv's. http://socalcash4cars.com/faq.php

RE: Durango RV Resort in Red Bluff CA

We stayed at the Durango RV park 2 years ago and were very impressed. A little tricky to get in the park, but once I figured it out....it was quite easy. I made it harder. One of the best Farmer's Market in Red Bluff.

RE: South Carlsbad State Beach, California

The last time I was there in 2010 they were beginning to strictly enforce that rule. The problem is not the actual sites, but the turning around to exit. I would not want to try turning around a 40 ft 5th wheel in that campground.

RE: what air pressure are you guys running

We have the Ford chassis with a Tiffin 36LA. We had the suspension upgraded and as part of that we had it weighed. After weighing the RV we are running with the psi at 80 to 85 lbs.

RE: "RV" toilet paper - myth busted

We have used Costco's Kirkland toilet paper for years with no problems. Read in their magazine how they designed and tested it to be RV and septic safe. http://www.roadworkplay.com/2013/10/rv-safe-toilet-paper-brands/

RE: Workhorse Dash Cluster Recall

Hope this helps. If you Google "Workhorse Dash Cluster Recall" several sites pop up that claim they will repair it: 50402-C Actia Instrument Cluster Workhorse Custom Chassis has decided that a non-compliance with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) 101 and 105, which relates to motor vehicle safety, exists in certain subject models with Actia Instrument cluster. The non-compliances involve incorrect software programmed into the cluster such that certain driver warnings required by Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) are not displayed. Incorrect software may not have the ability to illuminate warning lamps indicating brake system failure codes. FMVSS require river warning when brake failure codes are set.

RE: Where to buy Michelin 22.5" Tires in Tucson AZ

Just did a Google search. Suggest you get an estimate and then maybe check Yelp reviews. http://www.jackfurriers.com/rvcenter.htm

RE: Delamination! Any testing available?

Use a moisture meter to see if and how much moisture is in the wall. They are available on-line and at larger hardware stores.

RE: Glacier National Park

Glacier is beautiful....as is the surrounding area. Prepare for rain. If you like to hike, bring Bear Spray and Bells to make noise. You need to see "Trick Falls". Also, bring passport and go to Waterton National Park in Alberta, Canada. Beautiful National Park on the Canadian side of Glacier National Park. The Flathead Lake area just Southwest of Glacier is beautiful, and we like to visit the little town of Big Fork, Montana. 5th wheel cannot go on the "Going to the Sun Road". Snow on top of the road is not uncommon during the summer.

RE: Class A body roll

You can do a search for my post from earlier this year. We have a 2013 Tiffin Open Road on the Ford F53 chassis. Due to my wife's cancer treatment, she could not deal with the body roll. Went to Henderson's Line-Up in Grants Pass, OR and spent $7,500 for a full suspension upgrade. It did the trick and the handling is superb. They also weighed the coach and I dropped the tire pressure to 85 psi. which resulted in a less harsh ride.

RE: RV delivery via transport driver

Did this once with a Class A Motorhome. It was great!! I did have to take the driver to the airport which was only 15 minutes from our home.
