RE: Top of the Grapevine, lost all air pressure!

Just a technical correction, the Grapevine is actually the section of I-5 that runs from Lebec down into the San Joaquin Valley through "Grapevine Canyon." Pretty much "the Grapevine" is from Castaic in the south to Grapevine the town in the north. Steeper going into the central valley than the Santa Clarita valley but a big hill either direction. :B

RE: Smog check - Where do you go?

I called the place that does my other cars and they did it for me. The moho's don't need the dyno so as long as the hoses for the machine can reach outside shouldn't be a big deal. They do charge a little more I think in my case it was $10 or 12 more.

RE: Thinking Diesel. Am I biting off more than I can chew?

The spare parts go with your comfort level of doing work, just like most vehicles that we own. One that may help you here is, was the prior owner a fulltimer? If so that is his house and garage, the things part timers and weekenders keep stashed in their garage the fulltimer carries with them space allowing it.

RE: V10 Motor Oil

You will get all kinds of comments here, so I will start. I have driven our Ford V10 Triton over 80K miles so far, and have always used full synthetic oil, generally 5W20 Castrol. As far as the mileage goes, the oil weight is not going to make much difference. While not as many miles we have only been 36K in ours we live in So. Cal where everywhere we go is either up or down a hill to any distance! :B Like Johno02 we have run the full syn that came in it followed by Castrol full syn 5/20 for all those miles. We run close to GVWR/GCWR on most trips including high heat 100+ in the desert never an issue.

RE: Major attraction discounts

Good Sam is unafiliated wth other 'discounts' and organizations, the way it should be. Good Sam is an organization of campgrounds and rv parks. Attractions are another matter, outside the scope and subject matter of Good Sam. Actually Good Sam started as a an organization of campers not businesses, so if it is supporting businesses shouldn't it be any that support camping/RV lifestyle? I do notice no response from GS yet.

RE: Cool find on Craigslist!

Tons of 283's in the 60's my dads 3/4 ton pickup came with one from the factory even with the heavy duty package, 4 speed stick with super low 1st gear. Saw many of these in the 60's we called them chassis mounts, as they were a real close cousin to slide in campers. we had a slide in Open Road camper and there were several Open Road chassis mount here in town at that time, predecessor to the C class. One I think that made the propane light go away is newer rigs are much more air tight.

RE: Espresso Machines and a Good Latte

I keep threatening to take the one from house with us, already take the Bunn coffee maker. It is not cheap but I got mine as an anniversary gift from work for 25 years. It is Breville and makes a good cup, think any short comings are MY skill level. I have seen them at Williams-Sonoma.

RE: What coach would you buy for $$$$ ?

Last I read in their online magazine they have two concept/pilot units almost completed. Best I know though they are still trying to get substantial financing to fund the startup of manufacturing.

RE: Portland, OR to Phoenix

We used to use the 95 from above Tonopah up to the I80 in winter to go to Elko where the in-laws lived never an issue even at Christmas time.

RE: Ford 305 HP pull toad?

That is like comparing mileage between diesels and gas, per lb moved diesels have exceptional mileage but the actual mpg you see is not that different and most people soon forget they jumped 10K+ in weight when they went to their diesel from their gas. The 362 is in bigger heavier coaches and mostly taller all detrimental to gas mileage.

Major attraction discounts

I was wondering if Good Sam has looked at attracting more major attractions to offer a discount like they do for AAA? We have discount at the Orlando area attractions but that is pretty much it. Think towards things like aquariums, zoo's, museums in areas where there is a Good Sam campground(s) which would help enhance their business and give more value to them for their involvement with GS.

RE: Golf Car(t)s

What advantage does a gas golf cart have over an electric? Can they handle hills better? Do they have more power? Bruce My electric didn't have the power I wanted so to get a little more power, I bought a gas one. http://i.imgur.com/JJMSeb8l.jpg :B Looks like you got it from Tim "the toolman!!" More power!!! ARH ARH ARH!!! :B

RE: Fantasy Tours Albuquerque Balloon Fest

Fantasy is the "official" tour operator for several organizations including Good Sam so it is applicable to general RV.

RE: DC power only wrks from shore or gen on AND eng is running

One Thank You for coming back and stating what the final fix was, even though it could be embarrassing. Too many ask for help and then never come back to tell the solution to their specific failure. BTW from the number of responses with disconnect/salesman switch in them you should feel confident you are not the only one to have done this!
