RE: Pumping gasoline into a diesel tank

Read about it in forums over the years. Easy to do if not paying attention and drive a gasser most of the time. Just the other day, I went to reach for the gas nozzle instead of diesel at the station where I always fill up my car. Luckily I caught myself like you did before I filled up the truck....

RE: Ca. trip in Feb looking for beach and wine country RV parks

For a stop over... Quartsite or Joshua Tree depending on which route you take. There really isn't a good choice near Santa Barbara other than the State Parks which are sometimes booked solid, noisy and no extras... North of Santa Barbara is Ocean Mesa RV Resort... high priced but nice it is not on the water side of Hwy 101 but is high enough you get some water views. North of Santa Barbara in Buellton is Flying Flags RV Resort there are wineries in the area and it is near Solvang (tourist destination). It is inland right off of Hwy 101 Pismo Beach area has some good RV parks. Coast state campgrounds around Morro Bay & San Simeon (Hearst Castle) are good. Another Wine Area is in Southern California around the City of Temecula. There are lots of great RV Parks nearby plus casinos. Our favorite is the Rancho California RV Resort east of Temecula. Unfortunately, they only accept 30 foot plus Class A or 5th wheels. Another favorite in the area is Tucalota Springs http://www.tucalotasprings.com/

RE: Advice needed on small towable truck

Lots of RVers use jeeps as a dinghy. I've seen some with a motorcycle rack on the back of the jeep for lightweight bikes (like a dirt bike). Others have used a special lift on their motorhome to carry a large road bike but still be able to hitch up a dinghy at the same time Something like this --- http://www.cruiserlift.com/cruiserlift.html

RE: Anyone ever hear of a Vogue III Luxery motorhome?

Like the others have said it was the MH to own at the time. Concern on something that old is how well was it maintained...especially preventative maintenance.

RE: CA camping trip being planned South Coastal areas

San Diego- my choice would be Chula Vista RV Resort. It's a 5 star park in my opinion located at the south end of San Diego bay. It's close to all of the San Diego area attractions. Heading north your choices may be hard to get into. San Clemente State Park is nice but only 2 hours north of San Diego. I would try Rincon Parkway north of Ventura. It's a first come first get county campground right on the ocean. Best views for the money. Boondocking at it's best. If you arrive on Sunday thru Wednesday by 9-10AM you usually can get a spot. Next choice north is in Buellton. Flying Flags RV Resort. It's a little inland but very nice full hookup park. Or Jalama State Beach- great ocean camping. Windy... Great burgers at the snack shack. Road to get there is two lane narrow and curvy. Morro Bay state park in San Luis Obispo area.

RE: Faucets Upgrade

On our shower I was able to remove the hose and showerhead and replaced it with an off the shelf unit with on/off button from Lowes. Great addition because the new hose is a foot longer.

RE: Awning problem

Sounds like the spring broke. There are videos on YouTube showing the steps to repair if you are handy.

RE: 6" 2" Tall

An alternate option- I'm 6' 3" and very comfortable in my pickup truck used to tow our TT originally and now our 5th wheel. For comfort (both driving and relaxing while camping) you might consider a truck or SUV and TT setup

RE: Difficult to find RV Bed Sheets

We just use the standard size sheets and tuck in the excess....buy them anywhere.

RE: quality gone down hill.

Seen this a lot over the years. As a RV model or line gets a good reputation and / or becomes popular, the manufacturer has trouble keeping up with demand. They add on new workers, extra shifts and quality begins to suffer. One shift ends and the next begins and if the communications between shifts is bad, stuff gets missed. The two faucets in our last RV had not been tightened down to the sinks. We had missing and loose trim pieces...overall there were about 30 quality issues. The factory was close by so we took it there to have everything fixed. At the time they were the only manufacturer with multiple slideouts. The product line became real popular really fast....

RE: I need a reality check

Here's a good website to help answer a lot of questions. It's produced by a couple that left corporate jobs 10 years ago sold everything and became full time RV'ers. They had never been in an RV only tent camped. They include their expense each month since going on the road plus a journal of their adventures, working on the road, internet use, tips and lessons learned. www.rv-dreams.com Good luck with your new adventure.

RE: Office area?

I've seen many who have customized the dinnette and turned it into a combination desk and two person eating area. Or just a desk area. We had a dining table and 4 chairs. We added this http://www.amazingmagictable.com/2tabledesk2.htm This setup provides lots of flexibility.

RE: Newbie looking to live on the road for a year! suggestions?

Since you are new to RVs and this is a new adventure for both of you, I would look for a good used TT. You'll get more for your money and there are plenty of well kept RVs available. Check Craigslist If after a year you find the RV and travel works then consider something newer, bigger, along with a F250 truck for more capacity and safety.

RE: Looking for center console for Class A

From the looks of the photo gallery on the Coachman website a permanent console would get in the way of being able to easily get in and out of the seats. I would go to a marine supply and get a couple of cup holders to mount on the dash or near the side windows. Other option would be to have a slide tray built into the dash that you could pull out when needed.

RE: Christmas gifts

LED Flashlights always come in handy. Or a multi-tool Leatherman or similar.

RE: What is Quartzsite RV Show all about?

Bear... the name is Quartzsite...think of it as two words...Quartz and site. You are correct....mental burp on my part. Also Tyson Wells not Tyler Wells. I need to get more sleep.
