RE: RV Hookups near Hospitals

When our granddaughter was born in Portland OR a year and a half ago discovered Providence Hospital had some sites with power and water. Free to family of patient or if patient was doing outpatient treatments as several neighbors were doing. This was a huge help as little miss Aubree came a few days early and our reservations at the park nearby didn't start for a another 2 days and they didn't have room for us.

RE: Class A or C ?

Short answer to mpg is NO, neighbor had a 30' C with same engine trans as our class A and we got about the same. Some feel more comfortable in the class C cabin as it feels more "normal" to them. Others like us like sitting up high and having that giant windshield in front of us. Also my wife has Lupus and can not sit for more than maybe an hour. A class A allows her to move around more easily and as others have stated the passenger area can become part of the living space.

RE: Best Listing of RV Parks?

rvparkreviews.com doesn't include all but does cover a lot and with user reviews. As an aside if you find a park that is not in there review it and please review any park you stay in. It keeps the site relevant and the reviews current.

RE: Veterans Day

Those kind of things are so cool. I try to say thank you to those that I can identify as past or present servicemen and women. It is very pleasant change when wearing a Marine hat to have someone tell me thank you as it is much different than at the end of Vietnam when I was in.

RE: RV propane water heater

If we are using propane for the water heater we turn it on 15-20 minutes before hot water is needed. If using electric we leave it on, especially if temps expected near freezing.

RE: First time using tow dolly

If either the deck turns, large bolt in middle of it, or the wheels turn, tierod between them do NOT unlike steering. You only want one thing pivoting, this is one of the advantages to dolly over 4 down you can lock steering take the key out and lock the door.

RE: Convert standard outlet to 12v

The iPhone uses a USB connector which is rated for a max 2.0 amp at 5volts, only an iPad requires the 2.0 amp most other adapters supply .75-1.1 amps again at 5 volts, voltage dropped inside the 12 volt to usb adapter. So you could easily pickup power from a nearby light and feed to a 12 volt receptacle.

RE: Is a motorhome "Only For The RIch"?

They are NOT cheap to own OR operate. The cost to own and operate a 5er or trailer is Waaaay less than a motorhome. It is all about ease of use, IMO. The difference in cost depends greatly on whether the tow vehicle is used on regular basis besides towing, if not the costs can get very close. People don't RV because it is the cheapest way to travel. That said our RV, a 36' class gas, gives us choices. We can eat in or out, we can camp near/on a lake or river where not hotels or motels are located, we can stay in a small little town or a fancy 5* resort. Our bed is our bed and if there is anything in it we know where it came from! :E As others have said you have to figure out what YOU want to do and then figure out what fits YOU and YOUR lifestyle not what works for someone else. You can RV relatively cheap or you can spend obscene amounts of money to RV. Note "obscene" is usually defined as more than "I" would spend! :B Kind of like speed on freeway, those going slower are slow pokes and a pain while those going faster than "me" are lunatics!!! :B

RE: Help determining if I can get a motorhome into my driveway

The Tiffin will be quite a bit shorter than your current overall, 40' 5'er+18-22' truck= somewhere near 60' vs maybe 38' including ladder. Besides with enough gas pedal applied you can get in anywhere! :B :B

RE: Residential Refrigerator Installation

Maybe that is why HD has a big sale on the Samsung this week.

RE: coast to coast membership

Many if not most parks will NOT allow you to any other membership to pay for your "out" week(s). You can use the C2C at another park but not the same park. Would not make sense to by another park membership if yours offers C2C already as the rules won't change. Now if you found a membership at your alternate location that made financial sense for your kind of use great, then be sure and check resale and verify all fees and restrictions before you fork over the cash.

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.
