RE: Low voltage at campgrounds? I found the solution.

I have never in over 10 years told that I could not use my Autoformer in a Park You have never been to Thousand Trails Palm Springs then! A few years ago someone convinced them that Autoformers or the like were causing their pedestals to go bad. The fact was their pedestals were ancient and were in need of replacement. I guess this last winter they had no problems with people using them. I built ours in and it works great and by doing so I don't have to lock it up as they are easily stolen. Palm Springs has changed it tune and now allows them. As stated above old wives tale, if the autoformer has any effect on the park it is to smooth out power as at least everyone that uses one will pull more consistently.

RE: SoCal Rally April 10-12, 2015

Motorhome has allowed us to do a lot more traveling than any other choice would have. Cheryl has several issues from the lupus including back. Mh allows her to change positions or just stand and stretch.

RE: Dry food storage underneath

I do not stock food. I'm not far from a grocery store anywhere my travels. Canned food, pop, any liquids pile on the weight really fast. And I don't like having my basement (or any other storage place) so loaded down I can't find anything. Just my 2c. This was a change for us with the travel we do now. Back a while ago we generally went to a lake with at best small store and "real" groceries were 25-40 miles away so you packed everything you needed for the week. Now we are seldom more than 4 or 5 miles out side of a town and if we are we will stock up for however long we need to. We don't feed 5 people, 2 at a time as teenagers, so the volume of food we require is much smaller too! :B We need milk at least once a week and like to try and find farmers markets to pick up fresh food also.

RE: Progresive Insurance

When I did my renewal last month with progressive I asked about fulltimer and they said they do offer it, at least in CA at this time. Fulltimer is different than 12 months because it has liability coverage and contents that your home policy usually covers. If you still have a home insured than 12 month should be fine on the coach.

RE: Cellular Amplifier & Antennae

The Flag Pole Buddy mount makes a very easy to use setup. Rotate the pole to aim the antenna. Some tape can snug up the pole if it does rotate in the wind. There are phone apps that will locate cell towers to help aim the antenna. The kit you are looking at is NOT designed for mobile use - ie in motion. 1. It will overload when near a cell tower. 2. You are looking at a directional antenna. But using a second non directional antenna for mobile use will mostly work until you get to close to a tower. And you might find that it will often work when you park so that the directional antenna is not needed and hence no antenna setup. Given what you have posted about your requirements I'd have both antennas. Have you asked Wilson about a higher gain yagi (directional) type antenna? Make sure you pay close attention to the directions for the antennae, things like spacing between it and the internal antennae and that if directional do not point it towards the internal antennae. I use the trucker Omni directional mounted to the ladder with the amp on the inside of the rear wall. Looking at getting a second antennae that I can put on a pole to get it up so more in real bad areas.

RE: Good Sam Roadside Assistance vs AAA

Quality and availability of service is never a solid answer from any of them, after all they all contract with the same tow facilities. If it is a remote area or an extremely busy area their negotiating power is near zilch. That said after 35 years with AAA moved to GS as it would cover cars, RV and my motorcycle at the time. AAA says it covers the MC for an extra premium however when you read the fine print they would bring me gas or jump me that is it, no flat help or towing! We had GS for less than a month when my car broke down. We were about 11 miles from home and the nearest BMW dealer is just a mile or two from the house and this was a sunday. Tow showed up about 15 minutes earlier than told to expect and GS called me back twice once to make sure that he got there and second time to make sure we were taken care of. Towed the car to the house with the only stipulation being they would not do a second tow to a repair shop. Sounded fair to me and cost nothing out of pocket. AAA would have only paid for the first 7 miles then it would have been out of my pocket. I do miss the maps and DMV assistance when needed but that is it.

RE: Southern CA - Camp ground annual pass ?

Yes the zone pass will give you some variety without spending a bunch of money up front. TT has 2 parks near San Diego, 1 in Idylwild, 1 in Palm springs, closed during summer months, 1 in Acton and one near Santa Barbara Lake Cachuma area. Will allow you to check out the system and if you still mostly camp weekends may be all you need. We bought ours when we planned a trip to Yosemite. The price of our dues at that time was only slightly more than 1 week was going to cost us to stay at full hookups outside the park and we stayed for 13 nights! Been renewing ever since.

RE: Thousand trails resales vs zone pass?

The advice to get a zone to try it out is a good one. Dues are relatively low and no upfront cost. Couple downsides, the current zone offerings allow 31 nights of free camping then costs $3 per night you can stay in for a max of 14 nights and then you have to be out of system for 7 days. You can go park to park if you stay no more than 4 nights at any single park. Watch for one of the specials and you can get 2 zones instead of 1. In your case that would most likely be the northwest and southwest zones. This will give you the site in Canada, all the sites in WA, OR, CA and the one site each in Las Vegas and AZ. As someone else stated it will only work if you use it and the places parks are located is where you want to go. Lots of full-timers use it to control their costs of travel but like anything else it is NOT a cure all perfect for all solution.

Sounds like a great idea Dennis I never really understood people closing up the vents. Not that I would expect them to cut a hole in the side or roof for a vent on a new coach, but it is there why not take advantage of it. :B Hope this ends all the trials and tribulations you have had with your fridge.
