RE: yellowstone

It is capably of snowing any month in Yellowstone, I was there one time at the 4th of July and it was snowing very lightly! But the good news is they have excellent road crews that are dedicated to keeping all roads clear if possible. Last time that I was there it was mid October and it was low 70*s during the day a freezing at night we would leave early in the morning to site scene in the high country and all the roads were clear of snow at first light and the Bison were out dragging there bellies in the snow out in the meadows. All the animals were out especially the Bull Elk bugling and fighting other males at the Mammoth Ranger Station. This is a great area to stay at in the Fall, especially with all the vivid colors! Great Camping (NPS) and there is a restaurant, store and a gas station right inside the Park in the Mammoth Hot Springs area. I've been all around that Park many times and have seen the most animals in the north end of the Park. It is Hands Down the most beautiful place I ever visited in the World. Have Fun!

RE: 50 to 30 amp service

As long as your shore power cord is in good shape, you will have no problem. X-2

RE: Quartzsite camping spot preference

I also like LA Posa it's BLM land that is about $40.00 for 2 weeks, it's one mile South of Quartzsites on Hwy.#95 across the Hwy. from the big tent. I stayed there for 2 weeks in 2011. The BLM provides water and a sewer dump for there paid customers. When at the Big Tent don't park on the shoulder of Hwy. #95 the County sends Officers out there to write tickets. The free campground (also BLM) is at Dome Rock it's Southwest of Quartzsites on the road that goes to the City landfill. Don't know what services they have to offer? I visited friends there one time but never stayed there! The BLM allows you to stay there free for 25 days. The wind blows in the areas that I described to you and it can get dusty. I recommend when at these two areas to bring a small portable quiet generator and extra water. During the day at La Posa you will have to wait in long lines for water and to use the dump station. There is also free WiFi at the Mc Donalds in Quartzsites most people sit out in the parking lot to get on the net. If you have pets don't leave them outside or unwatched in these areas to many coyotes and they are very aggressive and protected by Federal Law. When in town carry a windbreaker and have comfortable walking shoes.

RE: battery detonation

Sorry to hear about what happened to you and your coach! In my lifetime I seen one battery explode and it was scary! I was 17 years old working at a Signal Gas Station, when my co worker went over to check on a battery he was charging. My co worker was smoking when he bent over to check the battery and it blew up!

RE: Anyone Traveling in their RV on Thanksgiving Day?

RE: Pre Purchase Advice

Tom, I driven Cat motors just about all my adult life. They are very tough and durable. Before I retired from work just to let you know we always overfilled are crankcases by one gallon. This advice came from Cat low oil levels in a Cat will cause bearing damage. I like the price on this coach that you mentioned and IMHO it's worth buying.

RE: 295/80R22.5 Latest Tire Prices

To each his own, my GY G670s (295/80R22.5) have been doing fine. Some Michelins, however, have been cracking along side wall in two years. Please post your facts on your statement about Michelin Tires cracking. I'm a Michelin tire owner and I'm concerned about my tires cracking. I would like to know more about your comment and the cause.

RE: Do you turn off your engine at the gas station?

I'm retired Over the Road (OTR) Truckdriver and I would always shut off my Peterbuilt when fueling unless I was having trouble starting the Cat motor which was very rare. In my 44+ years around diesels, diesel fuel is very hard to ignite unless your in hi heat conditions. I put a match out in diesel fuel trying to start a fire out in the woods. The match would extinguish before and I could get the diesel fuel ignited. I drove up on a overturned Semi and the battery was arcing, diesel fuel got on the battery and the truck burned down to the frame rails. IMHO truckers not turning there rigs off when fueling is laziness, unless it's in very cold harsh weather.

RE: Time to replace tires

No not a trick Question. We need to know tire size, we have a friend that works at Yokohama that can get them for us. I had a 2002 Winnebago Journey with factory installed 235/80 Michelin's. I replaced them with 275/70 Goodyear G670's from Thompson's in Rocky Mount, VA. There was no problem with fit. The G670's lasted 7 years. X-2, Goodyear G-670 and Michelin XRV are the only 2 soft rubber RV tires made for RV applications (these tires are made for RV specs due to RV's sit for a long periods of time). All other tires are truck tires FYI. My first set of MichelinXRV's lasted 10 years and I'm into year 2 with my second set. Good Luck with your Yokohama truck tires!

RE: bed NOT stuffed into the slide

You never mentioned the type of coach that you own and what year of coach your looking for new or used? I own a 04 Winnebago Adventurer I bought it new and I have plenty of room around the bed, my whole bedroom and closet slides out. My living room slides out with my storage compartment. My coach is 36' and Winnebago also makes a 38' coach in that model.

RE: tires

You might want to look into the Michelin tire program through FMCA. Buy 6 and the price break is like paying for 5 after all is said and done. You pay the installing dealer for the installation and you pay Michelin direct for the tires. This is all done at any authorized Michelin dealer. We recently replaced our tires and are were pleased with the whole experience dealing with FMCA and Michelin. X-2, this is what I did! FYI, Michelin and Goodyear make the only soft rubber RV Tire, all other tires are truck tires. I've pulled semi trailers from the Port of Tacoma and these trailers had Hercules tires on them and they were the hardest rubber tires I've ever been associated with! I would hit these tires with a tire hammer and it was like hitting a rock.

RE: Seek advice about towing my car behind my A-Class

I would ask your nearest Mercedes Dealer if your vehicle can be towed on a dolly with the rear wheels mounted on the dolly. Places like U-Haul rent dollies and larger trailers if you don't care to purchase one. Good Luck

RE: Braking System for Tow Vehicle

Not only do you have to check the laws of your State on towing brake systems but the States you plan to frequent to make sure your safe and legal. Some States have no laws but most do!

RE: 94 Brave LP Tank Shocker!!!

I also agree with the other posters that say to go to a propane outfit. There's a RV.Net poster KIX (Sandy from FLA.) and he's a retired propane dealer and has lots of knowledge!

RE: protocal at fuel stops

I pull in close to the fuel pump to allow others to get around me if need be!

RE: Class A or C ?

I've owned both and will choose Class A hands down! But a lot of people don't like sitting over the steer tires and prefer to drive a Class C. I mentioned this because my wife is one of those people!

RE: Has anyone ever heard of a Vixen RV

I don't think anyone would want to do this (fun fact) Vixen and Chinook were two RV's billed to go over 100 MPH. Chinook RV (from Yakima WA.) holds the RV land speed record at Bonneville Salt Flats in UT driving over 100 MPH.
