RE: Rte 44 in North California

We take 44 from just outside of Susanville over to the intersection of 89,,, then on over to I-5 at Shasta, Excellent road for that direction so can't imagine why it would be different from the other direction Ron

RE: Zion and Bryce Trip early September - Where to stay?

We've stayed at both... and both are just fine. Virgin is a few miles from the Zion entrance, but the park is A-1. Ruby's is not quite as nice, but better location. Ron

RE: 395 from Southern California to northern California 37 ft

I use 395 every time starting at Kramer Junction (40/395). . Ahhhh, not quite. I-40 stops in Barstow where you pick up Hwy 58 to Kramer Junction and 395. Living off of 395 most of my life I can highly recommend traveling this road. The easter Sierras are magnificent to behold, plus lots of hiking, fishing, exploring to do all the way from Ridgecrest to Reno. There are several passes over the Sierras to the western side, but most are 9000' or higher and obviously are snow covered up to and sometimes including May. Three passes, Hwy 120 (at Lee Vining that goes to Yosemite), Hwy 50 (at Carson City that goes through Lake Tahoe) and I-80 (at Reno) are nice roads and traveled by any size rv. Others are really not recommended for large rv's. There is also Hwy 178 over the southern Sierras (near Ridgecrest) that will go over to Bakersfield (but also not really recommended for large rv's) or stay on Hwy 58 through Tehachapi to Bakersfield that typically is open all year around and is the east to west truck route to central California. No national parks on the eastern side of the Sierras with the exception of Death Valley and if you're coming from the east, there are much better access routes to DV from the eastern side. Hope this helps Ron

RE: Holding tank capacity

For a camper that old...I seriously doubt if you'll find any information on it. For the tank capacities, I would just start filling each tank (one at a time) with fresh water using a gallon bucket...or maybe a five gallon if you can handle the weight lifting it up. Keep track until full. Ron

RE: 395 north

Ive been to yellowstone 20+ times over the last 40 years.always took I15 from so. Cal. Im gettin tired of the same old route. Anybody try 395 to ID. Then over to ID. Falls? Is it worth the difference in miles? How are the roads north of Tahoe? Ahhh.. I'm a little confused by your statement/question. 395 doesn't hit Idaho until way north of "going over to ID Falls". Are you thinking of taking 395 to Oregon's Hwy 20 and then over to Idaho? In any case, north of Reno, 395 is mostly high desert and not all that attractive and IMO, quite boring. However, 395 on the easter Sierra's is indeed probably in the top 10 of beautiful drives. Ron

RE: DIY Oil Changes- Fumoto Valve

I have had a Fumoto valve on my rig for years. I use the one with a nipple so I can use a clear hose and drain directly into jugs. The down side to Fumoto is it drains slowly. I love mine. Boy, is that the truth. I have one on my ISL (28 quarts of oil), and it takes me about 1/2 hour to drain all that oil. However, absolutely no mess!! I keep my empty oil containers from my previous oil change and drain the current oil into them for recycling drop off at the local auto parts store. I take my iPhone with me and read rv.net while laying under the motorhome waiting for the oil to drain. :B Ron

RE: Equalizer hitch necessary???

The Equal-I-Zer is a brand of weight distribution hitch with built in sway control.. I assume you are just referring to any type of weight distribution hitch. While you may not NEED one, I don't think there is any reason not to have one (except for cost). It certainly won't hurt anything, and it might be useful in an emergency situation. When you mentioned "emergency situation".... I'm assuming your referring to having sway control with the Equal-i-zer than with "just any type of weight distribution hitch" as the just any type of weight distribution hitch doesn't do anything for sway control unless it has an add-on sway control bar. For the OP... as mentioned you didn't indicate what type of tow vehicle you have and that could really determine if you actually need a weight distribution unit. Please let us know. Ron

RE: Legally avoiding California Sales Tax

All you need to know is on the CA Board of Equalization FORM 52. Hope this helps Ron

RE: New Membership deal for $79.95?

I suspect you purchased some sort of services like ERS (Emergency Road Service) from Good Sam Enterprises. A membership in the Good Sam Club is $27. I also suspect you failed to look closely and read what you were agreeing to. Yep, I bet that's exactly what happened. GS club is indeed just $27, standard ERS is $79.95 with Platinum ERS being $114.95. Not sure how the $121.95 got in there...maybe tax or something. But obviously the OP is confused on what he actually purchased. Ron

RE: Why assume I like your music

Already did. The OP of that post replied to me with a very childish and insulting retort. Ron

RE: Outdoor speaker install

Maybe you should read THIS post All I see is waaaaaa waaaaaa waaaaaa. If you want total peace and quiet do like most of us do and camp away from everyone. Most people that get annoyed living in the city with the noise etc move OUT of the city. You guys sure whine a lot. If you are boon docking way out in the desert and distant from your nearest neighbor, I say go for it...crank that baby up. However, and unfortunately, this is not the typical case. Playing music or watching TV outside in ANY rv park where it can be heard by your neighbors, is just rude and inconsiderate. Ron

RE: Satellite service

My bad.. didn't read Bill's msg correctly. Still, I understand that the Wally is a receiver but is it better than other DISH receivers? Is it a single or dual receiver? Is it smaller than say a 722? Maybe I ought to just go to DISH and research. Ron

RE: Allison Transmission

Thanks, the motor home is in the shop to have an earlier repair checked and I asked them to let me know if the filters need to be changed, we'll see. Not sure why people buy RV's except they are fun to travel with.:h The shop people will have no way of knowing if the filters need to be changed.

RE: Satellite service

Dish Network Pay as you go plan and a Winegard T4 or King Dome Tailgater. You will need a 211 or Wally receiver from Dish and you will be able to pay for the 2 months you need service and that's all. What's a wally receiver?Unless it has been fixed, the Wally has a software issue that requires it to find and lock all 3 satellites on check switch before it will operate. If you are in a spot it can't find one or two satellites, its a lame duck. However the Wally is Wifi and has a UHF remote which is nice. The VIP211z or k work dandy without that software issue on 3 satellites, but it does not have WiFi and uses an Infared remote. I heard they were working on a fix for the Wally Wait! Bill says the Wally is a 211 receiver, but you said the Wally has a software issue but the 211 doesn't. I'm confused. Is the 211 and Wally the same thing or not? Ron

RE: Allison Transmission

This is obviously not a mh that you have owned since new So, if you don't know when the last time it was serviced, I would go ahead and drain, install two new filters and replace the fluid with Transynd.

RE: Newbie terrified of blowing something up

And what kind ofoutlet do you expect to have it plugged into?? Exactly!! Need to know what you are going to plug it into. 50amp, 30amp, 20amp, 15amp???? FWIW, you can get adapters to use your 50amp cord to any of the outlets mentioned above. The gasser will adjust to whatever you use, but be aware that you need a certain amount of amperage to operate certain items or multiple items. The lower the amperage, the less that can be operated. If you just want to keep the batteries charged, 15amps is just fine. If you want to use AC units, 30amps or more is needed. So... Let us know what you're going to be plugged into and what items on the mh will be operated by that connection. Ron

RE: lost my storage bin while driving down the road!

Well by lost I mean it came loose dropped to the pavement but was still attached by one screw and I drug it for about 25 miles. 25 miles and you never looked out the side view mirror? Do you check the compartment doors before you hit the road and make sure they are locked? That is one of the first items on my "check" list before we leave. Ron checked and locked. it was just under the side of the MoHo, not visible in the mirror. It fell from behind the door. the door had nothing to do with the way it's mounted. I apologize. :o I should have worded it differently... did not to mean to insinuate negatively on your part. I can see now what you meant. I have never heard of the bin itself coming loose. New one on me. Again, sorry if I offended you. Ron
