RE: Traveling 101 want to skirt around Redwoods

The best way to skirt the redwoods is stay on 101 and don't take the" Avenue of the giants". The traffic on 101 moves right along. And Fort Bragg is not on 101, it is about 1 and a 1/4 hours drive west on hwy 20 from willits. If you go over to I 5 first it is then many miles and hours to get back to 101 which to me is a waste of gas of time. But if that is what you want, hwy 20 is the best route from Williams to Ukiah at 101. Then north on 101 back to Willits and then west on 20 to Ft Bragg. Give your route some serious second thoughts

RE: US101 to I-5 Easiest ?

For sure stay away from 36. it is to twisty and narrow. I always use 20 from 101 over to I 5. 299 is doable but not enjoyable. It climbs and descends over 5 different passes and can be winding in places. If you do this route allow 3 to 4 hours driving time

RE: My new 1998 Boy is home and now for the stupid questions...

For the leveler jacks, some MH's require that the gear shift be in park and the emerg brake be on, and some require the engine be running while operating them, so try it

RE: Linoleum under carpet?

Most run of the mill RV"s are built starting with the floor and then they install Linoleum over all the floor. No cuts needed. Then they install the walls and cabinets right over the linoleum and it is probably cheaper to do it that way then trying to fit the floor covering around all the cabinets and walls. To see if yours is like that, just open the cabinet doors and see what is on the floor. If you see linoleum then you know that it was installed first.

RE: Judge Judy and the Motorhome steering wheel

I have never seen a steering wheel on a MH or car or truck WELDED on. Maybe on a tractor but not a MH.

RE: Destination limits due to coach size

In California, cal Trans prohibits MH's over 40 ft on some highways and roads due to being too narrow or to tight in the turns. For instance many parts of Highway 1 are prohibited. here is a link to the Map. When it comes up, click on the map for the area you want to look at and if the road is marked RED, it is a restricted road. Just to add more info for you to digest. Cal trans MAP

RE: Driving with Cover on A/C ?

You evidently were able to climb on the roof to put it on, why not climb and take it off and then don't worry about it

RE: Engine stalls, flashers fail after rain

I would check the air cleaner for rain water soaking the paper element. Some MH's had the air intake positioned so the air intake would take in the rain from the front grill. No idea about the electrical problem.

RE: AC with Solar Panel

the description just should have stated the AC also serves as a mount for a solar panel that will put out a trickle charge to maintain the battery, usually the chassis battery. It has nothing to do with the AC system. except to serve as a mount for the panel.

RE: RoadMaster Base Plate for CRV, -1 or -4

Are you sure that 2014 CRV is 4 down towable? I agree that the 2014 CRV has a different transmission, CVT, and may not be towable 4 down. Better check with Honda before you buy. Just a heads up before you spend the money.

RE: microwave/convection oven combo

Yes use the metal rack with the little legs, set right on the turntable, in the convection but be sure and take the rack out when using the microwave. Also set the temperature 25 degrees below what the recipe calls for. Also watch the bake time, could be more or less time then the recipe calls for.

RE: Put MH on boards or not for winter

I use boards, 2X10, make sure the boards are wider then the tire tread. ````Also make sure the boards are not in a hole that can fill up with rain water, tires should not sit in water especially if they have steel belts as they may rust if the water somehow penetrates the tire tread into the steel belts.

RE: Engine Oil Jug Safety Seals Broken

I would not use it just as I would not use peanut butter or any food product with the seal broken.

RE: Power Gear Jacks

Just an observation, you said you have the emergency brake on but do you have the gearshift in PARK and the engine running? With the engine running the alternator will be putting 13.5 volts into the battery. Give it a try

RE: Removing Norcold Roof Cap

You have to remove the calk. As you have noticed, the screws are recessed. The calk is to cover the heads to keep them from rusting. Correct answer, but the caulk is also to keep the water/rain from leaking through so recaulk when done

RE: Fleetwood Flair High Beam headlights

I believe it is on the turn signal arm, you pull the arm toward you to get high beam and push away from you to return back to low beams. Or pull again to get low beams.

RE: Calif. west bound from I-5 to 101

If your final destination is northern CA, Redwoods, and you don't want to go through the Bay area, SF, then stay on I 5 past Sacramento and go to Williams and take Hwy 20 over to 101, at Ukiah. this cuts out all the bay area traffic that can be heavy at times. If you don't mind the bay traffic, then post this `desire and there are ways around some of it. So where do you want to go?? Note, 101 through SF goes over the golden Gate bridge, which requires you to drive some city streets.
