RE: Bedroom A/C unit

If it is a newer Atwood per my conversation with their customer service folks, that is the way it is designed to work. Some other brands work differently and the fan can be set to only run when the compressor runs.what brand is yours?

RE: We altering mattress size

I believe you can cut down the size of the bed pretty easily. One would have to look and see if there is enough of an "overhang" to be able to just cut it off to queen size and trim finish off the edge or if it would take more effort. Doubt you can cut down the mattress and would have to purchase a new one.

RE: The things you find in cemeteries

Just had occasion to visit the shiloh national park and national cemetery in Tennessee. Every civil war soldier who died there is buried there and there were lots of them. Many if not most of the graves/head stones have only numbers on them. Some have only one name, some two, some have the state the person was from, etc. Beautiful park. If in the area one should visit.

RE: Class A advice

I have had three winnebagos, 2 gas, one diesel.the two gas were great motor homes. Did have to pay attention to roof fastened at sidewall. The last winnebago we had was a 5 year night mare. Winnebago was great but still doing one warranty work after 5 years and had 5000 miles dedicated to warranty. Never found the same and number of problems with any other journey. Finally got a Newmar and it had some "newborn problems" and while not perfect far better than the other brands of motor home I owned over the past 20 years.

RE: Austin to Big Bend - Hill country stops

If in / around Fredericksburg check out admiral Nimitz museum. Also tour Johnson state and federal parks between Fredericksburg and Johnson city. (They are colocated) Both very interesting.

RE: Winnebago Vista 30 vs Thor Ace 30.1

I too would go for the Winnebago, but understand the 10 year warranty. It does not cover the fiberglass coming out from the side if it has not been maintained. I believe if it ever comes out it will be considered as "not maintained". Had three winnebagos and sometimes I was told the roof side seam needed to be checked and "maintained" every 6 months and sometimes every year. Just be an informed buyer.

RE: antenna

I just had to replace lots of my antenna system. Coax on three roof deteriorated to point that shielding was pretty much all exposed and after replacing found the amplification was no longer working. Had to replace with an equilivant of the box of many buttons. While I was at it I just went ahead and put in a 40 inch smart TV.

RE: Here I go again...

Assuming you have HWH jacks on your Winnebago product and assuming they have not changed since I had one, you may be able to stop this from happening by not shutting the system off at the panel after raising the jacks. Let them time out on their own. Dont know why this works but it was what I was told and it worked for me at the time.

RE: Recommendations for Jan-March....Desert SW...

A place to consider is Justins diamond J RV park in Tucson AZ. It is about 10 miles south of I-19 off Ajo way. Very quiet, very large spaces, reasonable cost. Owners are very nice and we just like the place. Close to anything you might need but you not "in it". I live in Alamogordo NM, population 35,000, and it has many RV options as well. When you say the South West you have more options than you can imagine. Goof luck in your endeavor.

RE: Painting the Exterior

I had a 2001 journey with same problem. My understanding is that the problem is the sidewall material and painting is a temporary fix as it will reoccur. Winnebago called it "sidewall checking". Others called it "sidewall etching". The fibers are working their way out of the wall material. Darker colors, more heat, causes it to happen faster. Most all manufacturer's had the same ptoblem. My Newmar product has had the sidewall material replaced. Can do that on a hung wall slide, cannot do on a vacubonded wall. Paint will fix for awhile but do not know for how long.

RE: RV Parks Near Mayo Hospital & Clinic Phoenix & Scottsdale

I recommended and still like Eagle View rv park if you can get in. It is a very short drive to the clinic in Scottsdale and there is a courtesy shuttle between there and the hospital each way every 30 minutes all day. We found it easy and convienent to park at the clinic and take the shuttle and leave the driving to Mayo.

RE: Tree sap

I used alcohol after getting lots of tree sap on our coach. An RV park cut off low hanging branches so coach would fit under the tree. What a mistake that was,never again. Alcohol worked great.

RE: RV Parks Near Mayo Hospital & Clinic Phoenix & Scottsdale

We like and have used the eagle view rv park in fountain for the very same reason. It is Part of the fort McDowell casino. It is very difficult to get a reservation especially the time of year you are looking at being there.

RE: USAA Insurance

I've been a USAA member for over 54 years. Had had very few claims,but when I did absolutely no problems. Got hit by a vehicle that had no insurance. My uninsured motorist with USAA paid and even waived my deductible. Four of our five kids and most grandchildren have USAA. Non of us would have any other insurance.

RE: NHTSA& EPA want to limit speedof vehicles over 26,000 lbs

They would have to be governed to not exceed a given speed. Setting a limit would not work. First time I traveled I-10 from El Paso TX to San Antonio with a speed limit of 80 mph I was surprised by the number of cops and the number of vehicles they had stopped. Trucks included.

RE: Overnight On I-25

Not sure what kind of stop you have in mind but there is one rest stop between raton and Las Vegas where overnight parking is permited. If wanting RV hook ups we like the Whittington center (NRA). They have two RV parks open to the public. They are about 4 miles west of raton, nm.There is a KOA off i25 at Las vegas. Casino rv park between Santa Fe and Albquerque. In addition to these there are probably 100 more.

RE: Beach Trip

I nearly buried my car on Padre island once. Fortunately it was a vw bug and my buddy and I lifted it up and out of the sand and back to the road. Be careful!

RE: Newmar Ventana

He is "picking on it" as he does not like the rear radiator and would instead choose the DSDP as it has a rear radiator.
