RE: Thousand Trails Reviews Please

I assume that by mentioning "giving it a try for a year", that you are referring to a Zone Pass. I think TT has a 2 for 1 special going on now for $545. I am a full TT member, but have met lot of Zone pass holder. All seem to like it. Especially those that stay at the TT Yosemite Lakes park while visiting Yosemite. The Zone pass fee almost offsets the cost of staying in a commercial CG for a week. Granted, some of the northern California parks gets mixed reviews. I guess some of us have mixed opinions on about every thing. If your travel palms warrant it, I would also pick the Zone Pass for Washington and Oregon. Lots of nice TT Parks there. We really like the Park in Seaside, OR. The Zone Pass is the current special Since it includes 2 for the price of one I might as well include Oregon. Yosemite Lakes is one of campgrounds of interest. I wonder why they call it Yosemite Lakes. I guess I'll have to zoom in on the map in their area, maybe that will explain it. I don't remember ever seeing a lake there. I have only been there once, was not one of our favorites. Be aware that from the campground it is still an hour to Yosemite Village. We frequent LOTS and San Benito. San Benito had gone down hill for a while but the new manager is really making a push to improve the property back to what it used to be. I have been going to TT preserves since early 80s. Most went downhill for a while but seem to be improving. Only downside is they have become more crowded, especially on holiday weekends. Russian River is also not a favorite because the sites are old and small so we have a hard time finding a spot we can fit into. Most of the Oregon and Washington preserves are nice, but it has been several years since we've been to those. OK, took a look at the map. The Hetch Hetchy is an hour away and Cherry Lake and Lake Eleanor are about an hour and a half away. I guess that counts as Yosemite Lakes Campground. Sort of. There used to be small lakes at Yosemite Lakes. The main one is filled with sand that has been washed in for several years making it basically a waist high wide river to the dam. In the summer they dam up a section of the river making a small lake. What is nice is you can camp next to the Tuolumne River and there is good trout fishing also.

RE: Dodge torque converter

I had mine rebuilt with all Goerend parts. Since I was already paying for a new transmission I went ahead with the Triple disk which required a Billet input shaft. Also a new valve body. I have an Edge programmer and wanted to not have to worry about it. I also use an exhaust brake and feel like the triple disk will help with longevity.

RE: Landin Gear (again!)

I think I would just put the crosslink back on then they would always be equal. If you need side to side difference then dig out a little dirt or use a small block on whichever side is needed. You could even get an adjustable foot pad. I have wanted to add another motor for awhile as these single motor units seem barely adequate.

RE: Best Shocks?

Are you running max air pressure in your tires?

RE: EZ Flex hanger bolts creeking - triple axle

bkirkpatrick what I mean by not welding is I have had to replace a broken spring miles away from anywhere. I take a lot of tools with me but I don't carry a grinder so depending how much weld was put on would make it more difficult to remove the spring bolts.

RE: EZ Flex hanger bolts creeking - triple axle

Problem with tack welding is what happens if you have to change a spring out in the wilderness?

RE: External care of your rig

Nice thing about replacing the decals when they fade is upgrading to the newer style and you have a newer looking unit.

RE: San Simeon State Park?

We were just there in July. I was worried about this also. We had plenty of water but the faucets were still working even though they were not supposed to. People were able to get water. Bathrooms were closed and they had porta potties. Not sure if this is still true.

RE: Second Vehicle Fee

We towed our street legal Tracker to Oceano Dunes, no extra charge and they give you a window slip for it. If we drove it then we would have to pay extra. My brother drove his Tracker and they wanted him to pay extra so he had to load it up to bring it in. Stayed at a National Forest campground with same Tracker. Had to pay the extra vehicle fee. Coral Pink sand dunes in Utah did not require extra fee for same Tracker. We wanted to stay at Valley of Fire in Nevada but they would not let us unload our RZR at all. It all depends where you go I guess.

RE: Fresno, CA to Santa Cruz (Felton), CA

Yes 129 is fine, I take it all the time. Big rigs use it as well.

RE: Trailer Friendly Gas Stations

You can try Gas Buddy, they sometimes have pictures of the stations.

RE: Clearance lights on at the campground

My brothers Sandstorm has a switch to turn on the clearance lights built in from the factory. It seems every time he goes camping and turns on the lights it freaks at least one person out.

RE: Oregon HWY 395

We took 395 form Washington to California and there are some decent dry camping campgrounds. It definately is not the fastest way across Oregon. It was good to see once which was enough. If you have time then it would be fun to explore more on the way.
