RE: RI to SD trip

Thanks for all the answers! From RI to Niagara won't be that bad because we plan on leaving 3 or 4 am so we would likely get there around 1pm the drive from there to wi is the only worry, but hey, it's vacation so....whatever happens, happens ! We are both still working fulltime and we are meeting family for a reunion at Mt Rushmore on Saturday so that's the reason for the rush to get there. We have day trips planned for the badlands and the caves, and even devil's tower in.WY so I know we won't miss the too much once we are there. I hope the EZ pass works like it should. We definitely do not want to go anywhere near Chicago traffic and will be taking a detour around it.

RI to SD trip

Looking for as much info as i can get. This will be our longest trip in our N2U motorhome. We will start in RI and take I90 to the grand island NY KOA to visit the falls and a overnight stay. Then we want to take I90 west to Madison WI and the KOA there for another overnighter, and the last leg will be I90 west to MT Rushmore SD. (Yes, we know there are some LOOOOONG. Drives involved, me and my wife will drive in shifts). My first concern is I90 where it goes into chicago, we were thinking of heading south and then shooting back up to WI , from WI, its pretty clear to SD. We also have questions on our EZ Pass we will be getting for the trip, and if it will work that far west etc... Their website isnt real clear on states that accept it etc... Any help is appreciated. We have limited time to get out to SD and that is why we are doing the long drives to get there.....

RE: Has anyone had a run in with any WILD animals?

This didnt happen to us, but the camper next to us put his cooler under the awning of his trailer ( this campground specifically tells you NOT to do that as it is in bear country. Well we heard a ruckus one morning very early and sat up and watched a bear rip the awning right off that trailer!

RE: What did you do to your Class C MH today???

Brought her home and immediately took out the old CRT television and replaced it with a 32inch led TV and put a second one in the bedroom. Just getting rid of that old tv probably got rid of 50 pounds!

Finally brought her home

Picked up our N2U class C today, wqasnt as scary to drive as i had imagined. The only issue so far was when i got home there was a STRONG smell of propane coming from under the coach and upon inspection, i found that when they filled the propane tank the bleed valve was not tightened and it was coming from there, i finger tightened it, but could still catch some odor so i called the dealer up and the rep told me to come back and they would check it. I pulled in and the mechanic was waiting for me! He tightened the bleed valve and did another leak test and used the soapy water etc... And all is now well. We spent the rest of the afternoon in camp "front yard" and got rid of the old tube style TV ( that thing was Heavy!!!) and replaced it with a 32inch led and another one for the bedroom. I do have a question, is there a way to shut off the stock ford radio display other than using the master switch to the entire coach? Mine is constantly on unless i shut off the master switch.

RE: Leveling class C

First of all I found that if you place a bulls eye level on the counsel between the front seats WHEN you pull in, that will assist you in finding the most level spot that is on the site before you even get out of the RV! http://i43.tinypic.com/25qdpqu.jpg After using this method I found that most times it totally eliminated having to use levelers under the tires!! I started out using the Lynx honey come levelers. But they crack. Especially in sand they just crack right up when you pull up on them. http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41gcEmamlsL._SX355SX355_SY295_CR,0,0,355,295_PIbundle-10,TopRight,0,0_SX355_SY295_CR,0,0,355,295_SH20_.jpg height=125 width=150 After buying my third set of those I switched to the solid ones. Still using the same ones. I don't have one set of the yellow blocks, I will get a second set. I like the bullseye levels. I was thinking about getting one and at least setting it on the floor in front of the fridge to get an initial reading when first pulling into a spot. Then moving it to another spot etc... I like not having to get out of the drivers seat to get a reading also. So..I'm thinking one on the doghouse is a good idea too. With a 31 ft coach, I know that the off level will multiply the further from the true level I go https://images3.campingworld.com/CampingWorld/images/products/20000/325x325/24733nblockbag.jpg height=150 width=150 And btw you will need to buy 2 sets.

Leveling class C

My coach doesnt have leveling jacks and i was wondering what you use to tell you when the coach is level. ( stick level on the floor of the rv, etc...) also if you use the stick on bubble levels, where did you place them? I wqill be using either leveling blocks or boards to get the coach level... Thx!

putting a cover over the roof

I believe my 2007 Jayco greyhawk has a TOO roof membrane. I was wondering if I can put a tarp over it while it is parked between trips

KOA app for android

I just downloaded the app and I was wondering if anyone else has any real life experiences using it. It looks really handy for the quick overnight stays . I'm thinking I might be using the app a lot on a upcoming trip

Question on shower mod

We are picking up our new to us class motorhome next week and we wanted to purchase a in shower shampoo, conditioner, shower gell dispenser. There are lots to choose from but it is hard to tell how big they are and how good they work so... I figured i would ask you guys and see which ones you use and if they are big , small etc.... Thanks!

RE: New Class C owner here!

Have date codes on tires checked. If any are over 5 years old they may be ready to blow just from sitting, regardless of appearance or tread depth. Have your brake fluid flushed and replaced and brakes serviced as needed. Have engine cooling system checked including water pump and all belts and hoses. Safety first! X2 Smart idea Don Thanks for the info This dealer has a 4 page (front and back) check list that the techs have to follow and "replace, check, service, grease, wash, etc...) then they sign off on it, and then their shop manager signs off on it before i can pick it up. I get a copy of it when we pick it up. It even shows that they drive the rv no less than 10 miles to,perform a "squeak and rattle" test. And that they try and correct any squeaks of rattles that they possibly can. They change the engine oil and filter and air filter, one really nice thing about this dealer is that in their policies it states in big red letters that if ANYTHING goes wrong with the rv within the first 30 days that they will fix, repair , or replace it, completely free of charge. This deaaler has been in business over 65 years i believe I forgot to mention, it has brand new tires. The previous owner brought it in for tires and while it was there he decided to trade it in and get a class A. But i will still check the date codes, i know how tires can sit around before they are sold

RE: New Class C owner here!

Congrats. Very smart way to buy... Slightly used saves you a ton of money. After you fill up the first time and see that you're getting only 7 mpg keep in mind that the rest of us on the forum allways get 20 mpg... Honest! I understand what you mean. ??. But we have been doing our research and budgeting our finances for the last 7 years to purchase a class c. So even though we wont be getting "exactly" 20 miles to the gallon, We will just accept whatever we get. LOL. We have a trip to Mt Rushmore planned this year, and even with gas campground fees etc.. It is still cheaper than flying and renting a hotel room! And then there are the beautiful sites to see while driving.....
