RE: sierra Del Saguaro RV Resort

The location of the park is Appache Junction, AZ. (Texan, thanks for reminding me that everyone may not be familiar with that park.) If you have other recommendations for that general area, please pass them along. Thanks, Jim -USNRET

diesel fuel question

I am concerned about the diesel fuel I put into my 3500 Ram. It seems like more and more fuel providers like Flying J, pilot,WalMart,and Loves are selling the biofuels. SO far I just find another source like BP, Shell and the like. The Cummins manual recommends no bio fuels greater than 5%. Should I be concerned, what do you do.

RE: Having a hard time with full timing

We have been true full-timers since last June but had been extended RVers since March of 2012. During that time we were gate attendants at Blanton Creek Park (GA) while we waited for the house to sell. During the last two winter season we stayed at Adelaide Shores RV Resort in Avon Park,FL. We had tons of fun and met many wonderful people. There were lots of activities and we were around like minded people. Some were extended RVers and many were full-timers like us. We are now headed to Madras, Oregon to host at Pelton Park CG. Once we finished our gig at Blanton Creek last Labor Day we traveled north to VA and meandered south arriving at our snowbird park just after Thanksgiving. As we traveled south we stayed between one and two weeks at each of the stops in between. Judy liked staying two weeks when possible. Judy has told me many times how much she is enjoying life now. One day we will settle back down but for now we like the highway. Take a look at our blog and the links included therein and you may find something to help with the transition. Hope this helps. We will be wintering in AZ next winter. Maybe we will see y'all there.

RE: Funny thing happened on the way to retirement

Congrats!! It only took us one and a half years to sell ours! Once we had a buyer though every thing went smoothly, even bought all our furniture. Life is good, checkout our blog. The initial entries will describe our preps for fulltime RVing, later entries about all the FUN we are having. :B

2014-2015 AZ. Snowbird Park recomendations

My wife and I have stayed the last two seasons in Florida at Adelaide Shores RV resort (LINK). We will be hosting at a campground in Madras,Oregon this summer so we thought it would be a good idea to stay out west for the 2014-2015 winter season. If you have any RV Resort recommendations for AZ we would sure like for you to share them with us. Thanks

RE: Ants in a B

To prevent ants from entering my fiver I spray around the unit with a "barrier" insecticide. I make sure to spray all parts of the unit that have contact with the ground. If there is a way in, they will find it.

RE: Leasing out your S&B home?

Like many things on the forum, people have different experiences for the same situations. In the end there are no single "correct answers", you have to decide what will work for you. In our situation we decided to "sell". We looked at the pros and cons and then made the decision that we thought was best for us.

Route Info HWY 26 (Oregon)

I will be taking a trip to the Madras, Oregon area later in the year. During the route planning I see that the portion of the route from Boise will be on HWY 26. I will be towing a 39' Fifth wheel. Will the road present much of a problem? Thanks for your input. Jim

RE: Really Pay to Review My Application

I have read all of the post in this thread and the answer is very simple. If you don't like the $15.00 application fee, simply don't apply. It is a condition of employment/volunteering mentioned up front.

RE: Tire pressure monitors

I use the Pressure Pro TPMS. It has alerted me to a potential problem twice. I have a 40 ft fiver and don't have any problems with signal reception.

Ditto to the foam.

RE: Sticks & Bricks: sold! Close to taking the 5er plunge...

Congrats, enjoy the ride!! We have truly been full-timing since Labor Day and see no end in sight.

RE: Tire Choice

Chris, Thanks for ALL the info. Thankfully, I did not have any damage, thanks to my pressure pro TPMS alerting me as soon as the tire began to have air pressure/high temp problems. I will up grade tires/wheels on the next SCHEDULED tire replacement. I do read the Cardinal Owners forum frequently.

RE: Tire Choice

Thanks to everyone who offered advice and info. I certainly received an education in trailer tires and wheels. Although I did not want to put the OEM GY Marathon ST235/80/16E back on the trailer, in the end I did. I am in a travel status in a small town and had quite a time being able to get a replacement. Hopefully, things will workout. The tires I an replacing are well over three years old and I don't know their history as I am the 2nd owner. Thanks again

Tire Choice

I have had a tire issue of late and am thinking of replacing all four fiver tires. The Cardinal now has ST235/80R/16 Goodyear Marathon tires (made in China). My question is, can I replace the current tires with a LT235/80R/16 or an equivalent tire. If you have any replacement tire recommendations please let me know. Thanks

RE: Signed the Papers Today!

Congrats on selling the old stix and brix. Ours sold in June after a long two years on the market. Everyone has to decide what stuff they can't live without and what to do with it.

RE: Full Time campground suggestions - NC

I am reading that you want to stay in one spot for a year. Is that right? Most people move around. Many parks give good monthly rates.
