RE: Child safety in a prevost

It will make traveling easier... don't have to wake baby to go to bathroom or stop and eat... My DD and I talked about this very thing, securing a car seat in MH. She stated dinette with benches would be first choice, so child could stay rear facing, especially for a very young baby. Later, where ever car seat can be secured best. Don't know about Prevost, but side mounted sofa's in many MH's have seatbelts. If you need to take baby out of seat to change or feed, I would only do it during low traffic situations and would really suggest stopping somewhere. You can always pull into a rest area, feed and change and be back on the road in just a few minutes. Great options when the baby becomes mobile, you can let them out into the space you know is clean, when you stop along the road. No crawling or toddling on unknown nasty surfaces.

RE: Good Sams or FMCA Road side Assistance

read the details, I decided on GS because it included all the vehicles I own. and also would come out if I had issue with utility trailer. I don't go far with it, but knowing if I had a problem, I could call them helped me feel better. Also read definitions of off road... and how far off paved road they will come. will they pull from sand when I am camping in parks with very sandy sites if I get stuck?

RE: Rear kitchen.

I have a 2011 Jayflight 24RKS it is similar to the Whitehawk that was mentioned previously. A little heavier (5200 dry weight and 7000 max), but I do pull with an 2010 F150 5.4 with tow package. It has an amazing amount of storage. Even carrying clothes for 2 females, plus cat litter and food for 10 days, I had room to store everything and space left over.

RE: Roadside Assistance

I have the Good Sam Platinum Level... it covers all my vehicles and I have had no real issues. I have used it several times for a car.. they did take a couple of hours to get someone to pick up the car when I had a radiator issue... but we were along the interstate in the middle of nowhere on a rainy Sunday afternoon. I understand that they had to get a driver to come from about 45 miles away. Same car had a tire issue, just outside of larger town, repair service was there in less than 20 minutes.. it just depends on when you have issue and where you are at the time. I also like that they have the RV tech assist call line. I have used that on a cold holiday weekend, and the tech was great help, walking me through my issue patiently suggesting various options, and explaining why he was suggesting the option. As a single traveler... that alone was worth the cost.. who knows what I would have paid to have a tech come out on a Holiday weekend (if I could have found one)

RE: Door Curtains

I saw a pair of rods for $2.97 in Wal-Mart... extend up to 19 inches wide each.. with screws and brackets.. and probably doesn't extend more than 1/2 inch from mounting.. perfect for inside of door allowing the screen to close or not bind. I will screw into door and use a little filler/glue on screw to help it hold in aluminum door.

RE: Any issues on the Winnebago Vista line?

was a real good review of the 36Y in Motorhome Magazine a few months ago. It was based on actual usage (test drive for weekend type). It brought up some things I had not thought about.. and helped me make my mind up that I still want one.

RE: Camper Bedding Question from newbie

I use regular queen sheets... since my mattress isn't as thick as some, I make sure I don't get the ones marked deep pocket. width is the same, so I just tuck extra under at foot.

RE: Raleigh N.C. campgrounds,

Stayed at fair grounds over Christmas to visit my DD and her family. Great location for my stay. There are no "park amenities" like bathhouses, playgrounds, or activities. It was $25 a night for WES with a level, easy to get into site. There were all types of RV's, and most didn't hang around during the day. Saw several walking dogs of various sizes. Worked for me and would recommend it.

RE: rest stops dump stations

I would be sure and check before I depended on one in GA. I have planned to use one to discover as I arrived, that it had been closed. I didn't check because I had used it before. Guess I will always check now, if I really need it.

RE: Bounder Critique

Love the floor plan, would work for me.... how does it drive? I see all the comments on people making all kind of changes to suspension/steering to make their MH drive better. I absolutely hate the idea of spending $100K for something that you have to work on immediately.

RE: what are the most common things that break?

A wrench/socket combination to fit the water heater plug... and I have a spare plug too. That socket and ratchet handle stays in the compartment with my other water stuff... never goes in with other tools.. so is always handy. so I will never fight to get the plug out from behind the pipe that is really in the way of easy access.

RE: One tire looks overloaded??

Plumber--- go to a good tire store and get them to find you more appropriate tires. I am getting ready to change out the tires on my truck because they are too soft. When I searched for LT tires in the size on my truck, no one had any. By going to a tire store where they really know tires and telling them what I wanted and why, they were able to do the research to find a tire that would fit my rims and handle towing better than the original tires on my truck. be careful at the chains... some employees know tires and some are just sales people that don't really have a clue.

RE: hooking up a travel trailer

I am a +50 yr woman, who while heavier is not necessarily stronger. I have arthritis in my right wrist so am limited as to hand strength. I have a TT that I tow on my own. I do have an electric tongue jack and use it to lift so that weight distribution bars easily hook up. I do use the pipe to swing up the latch, although my son can do it by hand. (as I said, not much hand strength). I use the "hitch guidance balls" to line up, so I don't have to get in and out so many times. I use a drill for stabilizers and have pull handle type power cord ends. My biggest challenge is getting the water hose tight, so I use pliers for them. Use as many tools as needed to make things easier and go.

RE: Where the best place to buy tires for my MH

I have found it takes a real tire company to have any clue what you really need. Locally owned and long time in business shops seem to have most knowledgeable people. Be sure they don't put 2 year old tires on your MH. Lots of chain places just want to put tires on your MH. They don't seem to care about the fact that MH tires age out before they wear out, so you need newest tire possible.

RE: Reserve America

South Carolina does the same as PawPawnGram said LA did. I really hated to pay a reservation fee for a campsite that I couldn't reserve. I was only staying one night on the weekend, so I had to wait and take what was available. One night each for two weekend nights during Christmas trip. Oh yeah, they sprung a "holiday rate" on me for the return overnight as it was between Christmas and New Years.

RE: Camping World / Good Sam Rally, Phoenix, What to Expect?

I went to the Rally in Atlanta and Yes, there was an RV show with lots and lots of RV's of various types. There were Camping World sales people from all over; they brought them in to help with the RV sales. Best of all there were Manufacturer's reps. I got the chance to talk to a design engineer with Jayco as well as sales and distribution reps. I found I got REAL answers from the Manufacturers reps, where sometimes the Camping World sales reps weren't quite as knowledgeable. Try to go on some day other than Saturday or Sunday. Go the earliest day you can. Earlier in the week is less crowded so you can actually look. On Saturday in Atlanta, there were so many people there that it was almost impossible to actually look at the RV's. Having to wait to even get in, and then you couldn't walk down the aisles of the RV for the hordes of people. YES, HORDES.

RE: Changing analog TV to digital flatscreen

I ordered my bracket from Walmart.com and did direct to store free pickup... Saved shipping costs. and I was ordering from a company that I knew who they were. Reasonable costs and lots of options... Prices online were much less that the few they had in the store.

RE: Why!!!

Don't feel bad, there is only one very small dealer near me. All others are at least 100 miles away (one each in about 3-4 directions) and the floorplans I have really wanted to see are even further.
