RE: Here we go again, advice requested

I understand what you all are saying, we had a guy try to steer us towards at Work & Play that weighs 7500 empty with a hitch weight of over 1100, no thanks. I'm thinking more along this line: Grey Wolf The GW #'s don't sound right, 7574 GVWR with 574 tongue weight that's not even 10% tongue weight normal recommendations are 10-15%. I'd insist on actual weight of one of the units.

RE: Raptor 332TS

Seems like I recall this happening more often a few years ago, as madbare said it seems like they started to put in a relief joint to prevent this. You might want to talk to them about that and see what they can due to prevent this in the future. Seems like its most common on the bedroom slide too.

RE: Need suggestions on 2-3 week trip to NW without reservations

We've gone to Crescent Lake which is north from Crater Lake for several year with our MH & boat, week long no reservations. There are many high mountain lakes in the Cascades with several NF campgrounds around them. You'll find some in Southern OR around the Redwoods too if that interests you. I'll second what SteveAE said, it's very doable due to all the NF campgrounds. View of Spring Campground at Crescent Lake... hard to beat the view and the price. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/3767874/mh_lake.jpg width=640 https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/3767874/boat.jpg width=640

RE: Jayco Octane 273

Hard to beat the Jayco 2 year warranty, I'm not sure any/many others are even still offering 2 year warranties. With the truck you have I think you're going to be just fine, but I haven't run any weight numbers. At 30' and 9950# that's a reasonable side behind your truck, do get a good WDH hitch and brake controller if the RAM doesn't have a built in one.

RE: Grand design momentum or jayco seismic

I was told that Jayco has bought Grand Design. They are keeping their name though. Not sure how true that is. Unless you can link to some sources I'd say its not true. I don't see that the guys that founded GD would need to sell out to Jayco, they already left Thor to start GD.

RE: website for selling an older MH?

I've bought and sold a fair amount on CL. What I usually is are the ads that don't give enough valuable information to get me seriously interested. If you really want to sell it you need to provide a number of decent photos and a good detailed description of what you have. Post it outside of your area too, most users do not search far and wide for what they are looking for so you need to be the one that posts up on a number of CL pages. Finally people on CL want a bargain, I looked up your rig on NADA low going for $15,950 and average $19,200. If you're upside down and asking much more for it then it's not going to move or even get you many contacts.

RE: 3-wheeler bike transport

Buy a folding 3 wheeler. Plenty on Google that I found.

RE: gear box vs next level

What are you using to establish the evaluation? Part of it is there were probably a lot more Gearboxes sold then the Next Level. Sites like NADA and KBB are not all that accurate, but they are a starting point. I feel like the NL was probably better built, but both have been orphaned at this point by their manufacturers.

RE: origin of Good Sam

Bit from here: Good Sam Club History Sam's Prairielanders In 1966, Trail-R-News, a southern California magazine, published a letter from a subscriber that recommended distributing decals to trustworthy RVers willing to offer assistance to fellow RVers. The publisher liked the idea and came up with the name the Good Sam Club, based on the parable of the Good Samaritan who helped a traveler in need. From this humble beginning came the Good Sam Club logo with it's familiar halo and wide grin. From the Utah Good Sam Club Mr Art Griffin, who was editor of Trail-R-News Magazine offered free membership in a new RV Club whose aim would be courtesy to fellow travelers and good campground conduct. A free bumper sticker with the happy face representing the Good Samaritan and the Good Sam Pledge, which consisted of eight points were included with every response.

RE: An observation on WAZE app

I use Waze all the time. It's not the greatest thing since sliced bread, but once you learn how to use it and set it for your style it's great at what it does. Waze, though owned by Google now is a separate division, Google bought it but from what I've read there is no plan to merge Waze with Google Maps and eliminate one or the other. On a large interstate with plenty of room for a car on the side of the road the warnings might be overkill, but on a 2 lane road they are invaluable. Same with knowing where the cops are, gives me time to slow down or move over a lane. As for rerouting, it's not fool proof. But it does work. I've been rerouted around my own community when an off ramp was closed. While in LA a few weeks ago it offered several solutions. It's just a tool, driver is still in charge.

RE: Kids sports

Our boys were heavily involved with Marching Band then into Drum Corps. It pretty much wiped out some of our late summer & fall camping, so we reserved our Memorial & Labor Day weekends, and went on a few 3 day trips. We also started taking the RV to the shows; meant no hotels and we could watch the shows and relax or help out with the Band. Having worked around Youth Sports for 30+ years I've seen many families struggle with the balance; coaches push hard then have no flexibility for family vacations. Kids are punished if they miss a few games. I've also ready to many articles on young kids, particularly pitchers, damaging their arms by the age of 12 and requiring surgery. Kids are only young once, family first. Find the balance in participating, that's my best advice.

RE: Ice skating

Our 05 Raptor had the sand paper grit finish, on a dry day it wasn't an issue but add a bit of water and it could be a crazy slick finish.

RE: Northern CA thru Oregon and Washington

You might check with the Casinos along the Oregon Coast to see if they allow boondocking. I did see that The Mill charges $15/night for the gravel lot.

California Campfire Permit Online

This was new to me, but figured some of our members might benefit. You can get your California Campfire Permit online watch a video and 8 questions.

RE: How to edit signature?

The signature portion is located in the "My Preferences" section, but right now the forum software is having issues there. It's been reported to the higher ups already. Hang in there. :)

RE: Grand design momentum or jayco seismic

Both have been getting good reviews lately. One of the upside to the GD line is they don't shy away from warranting the unit even if it's used for full time living, while most manufacturers make it clear they don't. But Jayco offers a 2 year warranty, I thought GD was at 2 as well but I see now it's a 1 year warranty.
