RE: Calif. 49 Gold country route for RVs??

If you abide by those signs, and do the right thing, without fail the nuts will come along side and force you to slow or stop in that turnout lane. I believe it is a local sport. I quit moving over. BTW it is the law to pull over if more than 4 vehicles are behind you. One I generally do if I see the turnout coming up is hit my signal so the cars behind know I am pulling over which gives them a chance to get ready to speed up and pass. Personally I liked the 49 between Lotus and the 50 in my convertible but would not have liked driving the motorhome through there. I have lost that need for challenges I had when I was younger. I have a tendency to take the easier route when possible.

RE: Pulling the Fridge? Big Job or Not?

You only need to push out the fridge a foot or so and you can do the work on the fans from the access panel. One other when I thought my fans were having issues I bought a new cover with solar panel and fan. When I pulled old cover off the screen underneath was coated in cobwebs restricting air flow! Cleaned it all off and worked great now for another 3 years.

RE: I-70 closed east of Utah in Clorado.

I used to drive through there at least once a year going between So. Cal and Boulder, it was under construction for the entire 10+ years. Always a beautiful drive but always wondered about falling rocks especially after they "blew up" the side of the mountain before letting us pass.

RE: Tire Question

Michelin gave me an adjustment with 6 year old tires for cracking. Not full price of course but the allowance on the 6 tires almost paid for 1 tire.

RE: Weather App

I use WeatherBug all the time but just downloaded an app suggested in FMCA mag "weather on wheels". You put in start and end location and date and it gives weather along path for those dates.

RE: Way too much fun in Quartzite

This was our first year out had a great time. We boondocked off Palomosa Rd(SP). We had spent 4 days up at the Havasu balloon festival first. They biggest yet with 90 balloons making it second biggest right behind Albuquerque. Great time the at all the different venues and even enjoyed wine tasting and an evening with musical entertainment at the wine room. Planning on going next year.

RE: TV Problem

Check in settings and make sure it doesn't have a power on and power off time set.

RE: At Pismo Coast Village

So just what park did this happen in? Some where in SLO but where? Pismo Coast Village. It's the title of the thread. Right next to Pismo Beach!

RE: Why add a sway bar to a DP?

One to check is any small mounting bars for the front cap as they will sometimes crack and break.

RE: At Pismo Coast Village

With the heavy rains the last few days and then the winds we lost a lot of healthy trees throughout the central coast. A pepper tree from the 19th century at Santa Barbara mission was uprooted.

RE: May 2016 trip to the SW

Keep in mind distance here in the south west, 350 miles 4-56 hours vegas to Anaheim, further than from Portland to Nor. Cal border! Traffic has not improved since you were here last so the 55 MPH towing speed throughout CA won't be an issue near any large city since you will pray to get up to THAT speed. I understand the time constraints, we had to many years of how far can we go vacations. with kids don't blink during the next 50 mile or you will miss .....

RE: Best Big Rig Park in Lake Tahoe Area

We like Tahoe Valley also just far enough off the highway for a little quiet, unless you are backed up to the hospital!

RE: San Diego area in Feb.

There is an Elks lodge that appears to have camping near Pio Pico also when coming in on Otay Lakes Rd. BTW to the Ventura coast suggestion depends what the weather does. With todays storm the 101 south was closed at Solimar and everyone routed onto 1 right past the campsites for 4 hours during the rain due to mudslides and water flow on the 101. We only got .7 inches up there too so not a big rainfall, the bigger storms are the next 2 days.

RE: Anyone camped around Grand Lake In Oklahoma?

We stayed here a couple years ago for a family reunion http://watersedgerv.com/ Nose in sites for Class A's with deck and table overlooking the water. We were there in the fall so the leaves were amazing. Not you normal commercial campgrounds with every possible inch covered. Wide sites and a great hill between the loop with trees.

RE: Dual AC Placement

One of the points to ducted ac is doesn't matter where the units are located, just like your house. Our unit has a basement ac so it obviously isn't located over any room. That does not mean it is ducted well and you may very well want to see how fast it will cool down on a hot day.

RE: Tractor Supply: Pain in the.... Propane Problems

It is their policy, It is their propane. Take the tanks off the trailer THEIR HOUSE THEIR RULES. Flying J has rules about what they fill and how. My feeling is you are the pain in the arse. Quit messing around and either follow their procedures or take your business elsewhere. If you cannot remove it because you are disabled or frail I bet if asked nicely they will help you. But since you went over the managers head I think you now have no friends at that TSC It's a class A they are bolted in an can not be removed and would require some kind of jack to even remotely think about putting it back up in the coach full!

RE: Would You Buy a Motorhome From A Private Party who....

One to keep in mind dealers have a year break point on what they keep on the lot, everything else goes to auction, so may have been nothing wrong with it. Was traded in , some people trade RV's like cars every 3-4 years, and didn't fit the dealer's profile so off to auction.

RE: Anaheim to Bullhead City with wind?

The 10 route the big problem area will be at Morongo Pass just before Palm Springs the rest of the way out of the valley will be windy but workable usually, just slow a bit. The 15 over the pass and through Barstow can be very ugly, in-laws used to live in Helendale and that was one of their issues was the wind. The 10 has more options as you can cut over at Desert center which will bring you to highway 60 going to parker, you could even take 60 from Morongo pass and out through the Morongo valley to Parker. Slower 2 and four lane highway which in the wind isn't necessarily a bad thing. Once on the 15/40 route that is pretty much only option.

RE: Can you help me narrow the field?

By the way lithium batteries in an amperage appropriate to the needs of the coach will be half your budget! Maybe you were thinking AGM which are still pricey just not that pricey. As someone else pointed out break your list down to things you would or could not change after purchase and those that would be great to be there but not budget buster to change later. When buying used we are stuck with what is available and can't be quite as choosy about getting exactly what we want.

RE: I say “Yes lets go” my wife says “not so fast Sparky”!

One for her to keep in mind is it is much cheaper to redecorate the interior of the motorhome than a house! As others stated pictures can be added either just standing or hung up when parked or fastened securely to ride along. Another since roadtrips are good for her remind her that her home will be with her. No hotels no packing and unpacking except to begin and end the trip. Just some of the things we like about our motorhome and we have been gone up to 8 weeks with me working from the coach.
