RE: Airline pilot Full Time RV

Cold weather requires some actions to take before leaving your RV for days at a time. You have to worry about anything with water in it freezing. Most RVers will unhook the freshwater hose drain it, blow out any remaining water and store it in a compartment until they return. Same thing at night if freezing temps are expected or you can wrap the hose with a heating tape. Buy an RV with heated freshwater and holding tanks or have heating elements added. I've read that many folks will leave a low wattage incandescent light bulb on inside the RV or a couple for a larger RV. This seems to provide enough heat to keep things from freezing inside when they are away. A thermostat equipped portable heater will also work but there may be a fire risk with an unattended heater. Good luck with your new adventure.

RE: First time Rocky point questions

We have friends in Mesa, AZ they go to Rocky Point several times every year they have had no safety issues in the past 5 years down there.

Sounds like you have it all covered.

RE: San Diego to Borrego Palm Canyon

The most direct route using Montezuma Hwy is a typical two lane curvy mountain/desert road. If this is your first time on that type of road in an RV...Don't know what you'll be driving...it can be a daunting task. The best thing you can do is to read up on proper braking and hill climbing techniques for RVs. Search through the forum posts and you'll find tips and techniques. The safer routes would take you way south or way north and add hours to your trip time. If you take it slow and easy using the proper techniques and watch out for other drivers you'll be Okay. I would only do the drive in day light and when you are wide awake.

RE: WA or OR Coast to watch storms this winter.

We often will head to our favorite camping spot along the beach when we know there will be stormy weather. There's nothing like sitting warm and cozy in the RV while watching an angry ocean as the storm approaches. Then it's great to listen to the rain drops on the roof and the waves as we fall asleep.

RE: Your First Class A

I'd say a gas MH in order to find something fairly new. Must haves besides the usual would be a generator and auto leveling system.

RE: Looking for companion to drive my motorhome

Marjorie please keep in mind some RV Parks and Campgrounds do not allow rottweilers due to the park's liability insurance carrier restrictions. Be sure to call ahead and ask about breed and size restrictions for dogs at any RV park you may plan to stop at.

RE: ring ring

smoke detectors and co detectors ring can be deceiving. In our RV even though I know the smoke detector is squealing due to a dead battery my ears tell me it's coming from somewhere else.

RE: Winegard Travler and Dish network

I would call Dish Usually unplugging and plugging back in the receiver will fix most issues. Dish may have turned off service by accident.

RE: Do I want a 5th wheel?

Transition from a TT to a 5th wheel is easy.... just takes a little practice.

RE: New purchase - Protective Asset Protection

On www.rv-dreams.com there is a great write up on extended service plans. The owner of this site does extensive research before posting a blog topic so I find his information very complete and valuable.

RE: Need to park it for a long time (just venting).

We often use our RV as a stay-cation site. We spend the day or even overnight kind of a home away from home even though it's not that far from us. This way stuff gets used instead of just sitting there. I've used it as a remote office when I needed quiet or needed to spread out paperwork. My DW has used it for crafting or wrapping gifts. It's great because you can leave stuff out unlike at home where you may need to put stuff away each night so the dinning table is free. Don't forget 3 day weekends or add a vacation day or two to have some 4 day weekends throughout the year.

RE: What do you wish you bought sooner?

Fresh water hoses, power cord, sewer hose...extras for those spaces where the utilities are just a tad too far for the normal stuff. A portable satellite dish.

RE: Why spotlights on older Class A'?

Easy to install $260.00 light and the dealer can charge $500. It's economics...

RE: Rear axle is 3/4 inch further left than front

That happened with our 5th wheel after the factory flipped the axles. They forgot to weld a cross brace between the spring shackles. One curb strike knocked the axles out of alignment. They realigned the axles and installed the cross braces and we've never had a problem since. The pins only have 1/8 inch clearance on my spring setup so I would be able to get about 1/4 inch adjustment by loosening the u bolts and moving the axle. I did have a pin break off on my 4X4 truck once.

RE: 38' 5er vs 34' 5er

4 feet is 4 feet so there will be a difference in tight spots but for the majority of travel no difference. A test should be allowed by the dealer if they want the sale.

RE: Tail spin

My fifth wheel follows the truck when making shallow turns so I tend to stop at large gas stations with pull through islands or truck stops. That way I don't have to worry about the tail swing. I've never had to use a station where the aisles and drives were too tight to make tail swing an issue.
