Yes, but I have no desire to live in an RV 365/year.
What we found out is the trip south and north from snow birding is the best part. When you take 4-6 weeks coming and going, and 3 months parked south, that travel need is pretty much fulfilled for us.
It feels real good to come back to all the comforts that a full size "home" can offer for the summer. I think those comforts are especially appreciated by the one who has to do the dishes, laundry, make the bed, iron, cook, wrap gifts, etc...
I agree John, No desire what so ever to live in a "metal box with rubber tires" 365 days a year. Love coming home and getting ground ready for a garden so I can make my sauce for the season, hope those tomatoes grow sweet this year!
I don't know about all this switching, I had my wingard traveler switched on before leaving home, got to S.C. called them, they wanted the zip where I was so I could get local channels, did so and got them. The fellow said, when you get to where your going, I'll have to call with the zip so I can get local channels. Nuts! I got to where I was going, got set up, turned it on and picks up all the local channels without calling and giving them the zip, seems the blind are leading the blind over at Dish.
Why buy new? Depreciates driving off of the lot, then your stuck with high payments. Many a folks have bought new, nice and shinny, then it ends up being a repo. Buy a good used one, save your self a lot of money. My humble opinion.
The next time we go to Yuma we are considering setting up at a farmers type market to sell my jewelry (silversmith). Are there any markets there that someone might have been to that:
1. gets good attendance
2. has other artists participating
Thank you. I can do all the research I want on the internet but there is no sub for someone who has been there. In 2015 we will most likely do Tempe' Festival of Arts so this would be a nice addition...and lets us stay longer:B
Every Tuesday they have a nice flea market in the Methodist church parking on frontage road between exit 13 and exit 14.
If you're a Dish subscriber and do not already have grandfathered "HD Free For Life" (HDFFL), Dish is again offering it to account holders using autopay and paperless billing. If you currently have the "HD Free For 24 Months" bonus, your account will be automatically converted to HDFFL. You do NOT need to be under contract to get HDFFL, Pay-As-You-Go customers with purchased equipment are also eligible. It took about 4-5 minutes in a CSR chat session to get my account upgraded this morning, eliminating the $10/mo HD fee I had been paying.
I just got off the phone with them, it's true but she had to put me on hold until she check it out. one of the conditions is, you have to be regisitered for automatic pay and another one that slipped my mind! I will have mine turned on in a couple of weeks and find out the other condition!
You never know how the traffic will flow thru Atlanta. sometimes you flow right thru and sometimes you sit for hours. Do not use I-285, go straight thru on I-75, if you go thru Atlanta.
I highly recommend using US 27 thru Western Georgia. It is a 4 lane all the way. Nice road and scenery, lots of 65MPH speed limits. In LaGrange get on I-185 to Columbus. In Columbus get on US 280 and go to Albany. In Albany get on US 82 to Tifton and get on I-75.
What kind of road is 1 going out of Columbia to Rome?
There are 3 cities I would rather go out of my way then go through: NYC, Chicago, Atlanta. I went through Atlanta on a Sunday, between 10-3, encountered a accident in which I had to divert off I-75 for two exits then back on. The steering wheel still has indentations in it where my hands were gripping! It was like a race track going through that place!
OK, I ordered a pack of 10 of the 1.2 kohm, 2w resisters 1% tolerance, for $1.99. I paid an extra $2 to expedite the shipping. Hopefully, it will get here before it is too cold to crawl under the RV to install.
If I can get the wiring harness from Winnebago, well, I just wasted $4. I'll learn to live with it.
If I end up installing a resistor, I will solder it inline with some 14g wire, and heat shrink it to waterproof it. Then I will use 2 weatherproof butt connectors to connect it to the existing wire ends.
Don't beat yourself up, you've never wasted money before? I wish I had all the money I've wasted in my life, I would be driving a Prevost then!
I put a new set of Kwikee steps on my motor home last year and I didn't have the set up yours has, how old is it?
To many states said no to my double towing behind motorhome so I had a custom stacker trailer built at a tune of $4500.00.
Trailer has two 6000 lb Henderson axels, 4 electric brakes, trailer valet, boat goes up and down by remote control on a winch cable pulley system, custom fit just for a Jeep Wrangler and small boat.
Now I can travel all 50 states and Canada..
My man, that trailer looks great! And congrats for getting a double tow off the road. Maybe you are 600 lbs over weight, but be aware, you are amoung saints here, no one has ever done anything like that or bent the rules. Stones have been picked up and thrown, you still have a nice trailer and I'm sure you didn't on purpose mean to go over weight. Perhaps in the future, you might acquire a motor home with more towing capacity, then, you won't be "living in sin" as the saints proclaim!
There is no such thing as the PERFECT place, but we think Yuma AZ comes close.
Seriously? Been there twice, first time great, second time BORING, never will go back, you have to get out more often!Different strokes for different folks. We find the Yuma area very active with lots of different things to do and some very good shopping. The only reason it would be boring would be because YOU didn't take advantage of what the area has to offer. We get out all the time, from the Mexican border to the desert to the north and all places in between.
What can I say? To us it was boring, it was pretty in the foothills where we were, not far from the gravel pit. Just not my cup of tea, even my cousin who lives in Pheonix couldn't understand why I went there, if I were to go West again for the Winter I would chose Pheonix area. And another thing that weighed heavy on our decision was the churches that we went to, they were so "dead", compared to the bible belt. Never found one that we liked. So Yuma for us, is off our list.
I believe that the air dryer's connection have a male on one side and a female on the other....so no additional connectors are require to by-pass the filter. Just disconnect the two lines from the dryer and reconnect together.
At least that's the way my previous coach was and I assume they are all made that way.
Good job getting the fix done on basically your own.
Well, it got me curious and I crawled under the coach, since it was a nice day to check. My coach has a C.C. Dynomax chassis, I have a 5/8" braded air hose coming from the compressor to air filter, and a green plastic 5/8" air hose leaving, both hoses have female ends so I went up to the hardware and got a connector, I always like to be prepared just in case.
I carry a spare, 274/70/22.5 on Alcoa rim. If I have problems tire service can mount it, don't have to wait or hunt a new tire and be at the mercy of gougers. I have plenty of space in my Dynomax chassis
Every one should visit Quartzsite once. Don't know why anyone would go twice.
Set up in the desert, with a number of friends, and have a great time?
That is why!
I've seen four motorhomes circled like a wagon train and they had their burn pit right in the middle with chairs around, would be fun. But if you not doing something like that, I wouldn't stay there all Winter, I just go up to the rv and gem shows then I'm out of there.
Towed a 2000 wrangler with auto transmission for 6 years. Mine had to have the
key in the ignition to unlock the steering wheel. Sometime in the past few models
they eleminated the steering wheel locks. Don't know what year that started though.
My 2000 had to have the key in ignition also, but I fixed that, take the plastic cover off the steering wheel collum you'll find a little flat panel held on with two screws, first you have to brake off the little needle like points in center of screw head. Take screws out, and a little 1/4" x 1/2" shaft with a spring falls out. Leave that out, and put panel on. You never have to leave you keys in ignition for it will never lock again.
Does your 2000 model have an air bag? Friend has a 2003 Wrangler, I believe and it has a lock as well that should be removed, but he has some concern about the air bag.
Sure it's got a air bag, what's that got to do with steering well lock? The passenger air bag lock is down by the automatic shifter for the transmission. 96-2006 wranglers are all the same, they changed styling in 07 I believe
