RE: How to Dolly Tow Unlockable Sterring Wheel Car

With a dolly either the dolly steers, through wheels turning or deck pivoting, or the steering of the car turns. NEVER both, so either secure the steering wheel or the dolly from turning.

RE: Coffee Grinder?

We got one of theserecently and love it. You can adjust the grind and how much. We have both a Bunn drip coffee maker and an espresso machine. With this unit I can grind the coarseness I need and the amount for both systems. :B We got ours with points from something!

RE: slide out in slide out

Before they went under, I think National RV was the first to offer a "slide-in-slide" feature. I don't recall which of their several brands had it though. Yes National created it and Monaco bought the rights out of bankruptcy. At first people were asking why but it gave more flexibility in usage. You could retain the ability to move around in the coach with the slides in but get the advantage of deeper slides when parked. When parked in a narrow spot only slide out to the first section.

RE: Yosemite National Park

Yosemite Lakes a Thousand Trails park is 5 miles outside the north west gate on 120. You will be able to stay 14 nights if you buy a zone pass, right now I think $525 a year. We stayed there for 2 weeks when we bought the membership, as any where else we checked wanted $325-400 for 1 week. The zone will allow you to use any park in your zone up to 2 weeks at a time and then have to be out of system for 1 week. You can go park to park if you don't stay more than 4 nights in any one place. BTW no matter how close to the park you get it is a long drive into the valley. We put over 500 miles on the car just into the park over the 2 weeks and speed limits are low inside the park along with the time of year you mention there are a lot of cars in there.

RE: Cancel my Membership

Biggest problem with these success and failure posts for GS and Coachnet and even AAA. They do not own any tow companies they contract with them to provide the service. You will find that you get the same company in a given area no matter which service you have and if there are only 1 or 2 that provide service in that area then the clubs are stuck with them and their poor service. Would anyone on here rather they tell you no reliable tow service in the area your on your own!

RE: Los Angeles to Monterey, CA

Since I don't see where in So. Cal. you are leaving from hard to be exact on the route. But 210 to 5 to 126 to 101 is definitely more scenic and generally more relaxing. It is not without hills, Gaviota pass leading into Buelton and north of SLO you have Cuesta grade. With the 5th wheel you are limited to 55, legally so even the higher speed limit on 5 north of the 99 split won't help you. BTW you could also take the 210 to 118 to 23 to 101, but don't do it on Friday evening or during any rush hour.

We have stayed in one of the Brown's lots at Christmas time, not much open and you register and leave check/cash in envelope you drop. Have also stayed at Boulder creek either is fine for overnight. Used to travel through going to in-laws that lived in Elko and then when son was stationed at Mountain Home ID>

RE: renting out your RV

We did it with a previous rig but it was bought with that intent and allowed us to have a unit when we needed it without the huge cost for most of the year. Now we use it to much to even think about renting this one out.

RE: Typical Fuel Mileage You Get With Your Gas or Diesel Class A

On a side note, how do you tow your BMW? I didn't think it could be towed with a dolly or four down since it is rear wheel drive. Our 323 is a 5 speed stick, I tow it on a dolly because it was going to be stupid expensive have a baseplate custom made for it. Put in neutral release the brake and go. Don't forget to release the brake! DAMHIK!! :S

RE: Taking Kayaks

You should be able to carry on the fit at least with some creativity if not stock rack. Here is our BMW 323i convertible with our kayak a Malibu two person. https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7481/16165533126_ebf15c772c_m.jpg

RE: Typical Fuel Mileage You Get With Your Gas or Diesel Class A

One to keep in mind is most of us with class A's tow a more economical vehicle that we do all our exploring and touristy things in. So while my 22K Dolphin averages around 7 the bmw I tow averages 22 exploring. What does your dually get when running naked? For most of us we spend more miles exploring than moving the house, avg. obviously some days the mileage is all house moving.

RE: palm springs CA area

RE: Bakersfield to Las Vegas by way of Death Valley

Check this link often before you leave and while you are gone for current conditions. Caltrans Highway condition Highway 58 towards Barstow and then either highway 14 to 395 or stay on 58 to 395. This storm is really freaky with snow down to 2K level which includes most mountains in the south and the Antelope valley so getting out of the central valley and then across the high desert may be an adventure in itself! They are warning people to take extra precautions in Pasadena tomorrow night for the parade as they are expecting temps as low as 28!!! Be careful and take your time.

RE: Chassis batteries needed charging.

Couple things make sure you check the water in the chassis battery, low water will cause faster discharge. 2 make sure and check voltage 10-30 minutes after you disconnect the charger as the battery will show an artificial level right after disconnecting. 3rd if you are really drawing it down that fast either you are using something you don't realize is attached to chassis not the house batteries or something could be miswired causing the extra draw. As Mr. Wizard stated some have an interconnect some don't and some are just broke.

RE: 1st time RV project?

couple of things that will make a big difference in the answer, does he have a place to work on it? If in an area with 4 seasons preferably enclosed and heated. Has he ever tackled projects that make up the different areas, cabinet making, upholstery, plumbing etc? The one in your link should be drive system solid but even the present owner states it needs a refresh of the interior and with the curved walls and ceiling everything will be custom made which equates to time and dollars. Thirdly does he have the patience this could easily take a year or more depending on time available and $$ available.
