RE: Workcampers needed.

The manager here has now opened up this position for a single workcamper to do the housekeeping two days a week, 6 to 8 hours a day. Full hookup site with free laundry and WiFi.

Why are camping world product reviews screened?

Why screen the reviews and only publish the good ones? I purchased a solar refrigerator fan two years ago. After eight months the fan failed, after many phone calls the manufacturer sent me a replacement fan. I posted a review then and it was squashed by the Camping World Staff. Today after not quite a year the fan has failed again. The fans are noisy when they are working and then only last less than a year. I just submitted another one today because I believe the public needs to know when you are selling a bad product. Lets see if you delete it.

RE: Finally some progress with my Allegro

I would seriously consider replacing the valve seals while it is out. You can do it with a spark plug adapter to apply air to the cylinder and a pry bar tool to compress the springs. Very cheap repair and at that age with low miles I can tell you the valve seals will be hard and cracked and can cause a big oil loss and smoke. Just a suggestion.

RE: Should towing a car ruin an otherwise smooth ride?

Are you following the directions for towing a CRV? You must shift the transmission to drive with the motor running and then back to nuetral before shutting the engine off. Otherwise the transmission stays partially in reverse and can cause a drag and transmission damage. I tow a CRV with the Blue Ox towbar and a Break Buddy and I can't even tell it is back there.

RE: Should I buy it?

Have it checked out by a good mechanic before you purchase. Unlike some on here will tell you, older doesn't mean bad and newer doesn't mean it is good. I drive a 16. Year old Itasca built by Winnebago and it is totally reliable and gives me no problems, I know plenty of folks that have bought motorhomes nearly new and have broken down. It all depends on the maintenance and care the owners have given it. The older Winnebago will cost far less for new tires than the newer ones but are limited to how much weight you can carry.

RE: Workcampers needed.

No that is another KIVA RV park but they don't have the horse motel. We are at exit 175 on I-25 South.

RE: Workcampers needed.

The manager has it posted on a lot of workcamping sites, I am just trying to help her. The park is KIVA RV Park and Horse Motel.

Workcampers needed.

We are workcamping at a small RV park and horse motel in central New Mexico. The park consists of some permanent residents and snowbirds. It is mainly a senior park but everyone is welcome. There is an opening for a workcamping couple beginning mid March with one person working in housekeeping and the other doing general park maintenance two days a week with five days off each week. The work is not too demanding and the owners and managers are good people. We are located off I-25 about 50 miles South of Albuquerque. If anyone is interested give us a call at 505-861-0693.

RE: radiator

Try radiatorexpress.com. They usually have what I need for a good price.

RE: Seam Caulk

On the Winnebago and Itasca roof to wall seam the best thing I have used is the Proflex from camping world. It is a sealant and adhesive in one and will hold well. Most others I tried only lasted a year or so but the proflex will lastfor years. Do not use any type of silicone sealant.

RE: Campground Hosting Rules

Each state has different rules and requirements for camp hosts. as said, if the state park doesn't allow pets, then you can't take yours. Not really true. The park we have been invited to host at this year is a Florida State Park that does not allow dogs, however it does not apply to the hosts. Most parks understand that we are in our homes and realize that our pets are part of our family and allow pets for the hosts. I would think they would have a hard time keeping hosts if they didn't as most full timers have pets.

RE: Saying Goodbye

This life is suitable for some and not for others. I personally enjoy it and have had none of the problems you mentioned. I won't say it won't ever happen, but it hasn't yet. Sounds like you have made a good decision in your case. Good luck with your new life and please stick around and join in the conversations. Have a Happy New Year and we hope it works out good for you.

RE: 11/27/13: New to Forum; Have Resume...

Talk to Joe, the park Superintendent at Bottomless Lakes State park there in Roswell. He wanted us back starting in January but my health will not allow us to come back west yet. That is a great park to work for, free wifi and a nice spot. No restroom cleaning and not a lot of manual labor, mostly need someone to work in the welcome center and someone to host in the campground.

RE: End of full timing may be soon

I type as a retired Hospice RN and a fulltime RV'er for 13 years who plans to die out here, somewhere on the road. (Hopefully not ACTUALLY on the road) Until you are absolutely forced to stop living the way you wish, don't. The most frequent regret that I heard expressed by hundreds of dying patients was that they gave up too soon. Finding a sedentary "place", curling up in a barcolounger and watching mind-numbing TV while eating huge quantities of largely ineffective drugs is an accelerated death sentence if there ever was one. There are so many mitigating factors at play and everyone's circumstance is different. Bottom line for me is that, when life as I want to experience it becomes too painful, problematical or simply not fun anymore, I'm checking out, by my own hand, with my dearest wife and friend's blessing. Should my final event leave me incapacitated, she knows what (not) to do. I hear you man, I feel the same way and that is one reason I have taken the steps I have up until now. My doctor basically has told me that if I attempt further surgery after having Radiation that I have a 50% chance of things going very wrong and me ending up just that, on a bed or couch with tubes attached or dead and I am not ready for either one. So I am going the drugs route and hoping for the best. I tried to convince my wife that if it got bad enough I would end it too but she flat out refused to allow it. I told her we were humane to animals in pain and suffering with no hope of recovery so why not me. That didn't work either.

RE: End of full timing may be soon

Sorry to hear about your Cancer returning. My hometown is 20 miles from Mt. Rushmore and now we currently live 30 miles from Devils tower. We are an hour an a half from my hometown. So I will tell you, as long as you are at Mt. Rushmore, put Devils tower on your list to hit on your way to Yellowstone. I will give you some ideas while you are in the area of Mt. Rushmore. There is an Air and Space Museum at Ellsworth AFB. Not the biggest Museum but interesting none the less. Make time before Mt Rushmore for some shopping in Keystone. There is an 1880 train that runs between 2 towns. Custer State Park, Badlands, and some Caves. Depending on how much you are wanting to see, I can give you more ideas for both sightseeing, shopping and eating. Devils Tower area doesn't have alot of things near for tourists like in SD. But it is a sight to see and no pictures will ever give you an idea how big it is. If you go to Montana, can give you some ideas for there also. And don't forget the Sturgis Motorcycle rally is the beginning of August. I don't suggest being in the area during that time, unless you want to partake in it :) Thanks, I had forgot about Devil's Tower. That is actually on her list too.

RE: End of full timing may be soon

Three years ago we were going to leave for a three month trip to see some of the eastern states, and two weeks before we were leaving I had a stroke, and it was bad. I would try to say something but I could not get it out. My wife got me a set of cards with the picture of an animal one side and the name of it on the other. I worked and worked until I got better. The first trip in the motorhome was to soon, and I do not know who I frightened worst, me or my wife. The year before last we took the trip we had planed, and last year we took a three month trip through the southern states. This year we are going to go up the east coast, we may see you at Niagara falls, then we want to see some of the great lakes and back west through the northern states. Kook out for a brown Rexhall motorhome. If we meet up I will buy you a drink. Glad to hear things are getting better for you. That's a deal I will look you up for sure.

RE: End of full timing may be soon

Thanks guys and no I will not give up,just trying to be realistic. I want to do the trip in the order I said because I plan to end my trip in New Mexico and probably stay there. I feel a lot better there in the dry warm weather. I will try and take in all the sites mentioned but have already did the Vegas, Hover dam thing. I have also already been to the Air For e museum in Ohio. Thanks anyway. I will not be in any hurry so I really won't plan too much, just don't want to miss anything good along the way. Thanks for the kind words and encouragement, I can use all that I can get. I try and not let it get me down but it is hard sometimes. I am only 59 and really planned on being around much longer.

End of full timing may be soon

Had planned to full time until I died but didn't plan on my cancer returning so soon so we may be near the end of our adventures. I plan, as soon as they get my medications stabilized and warm weather arrives, to make my next trip from the Florida panhandle up through Ohio to visit old friends and then on to Niagara Falls, then over to Mt Rushmore. Then I am going down to the Grand Canyon or maybe over to Yellowstone Park and then down to the Grand Canyon. I know this sounds like an ambitious trip at this time and my health problems but these are the places I promised my wife I would get her to while we fulltimed and can not disappoint her. She is my rock, the love of my life and is being a real trooper about my health issues. She tells me that I am going to be ok and be around a long time but I know the truth. The reason I am writing this is to ask for any pointers, sites to see, problem roads or mountains and so on. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide. I want her to never forget this trip.

RE: traveling route 66

Visit Bozo's auto museum in Santa Rosa New Mexico. Bozo was big in the hot rod world in the James Dean days. Met his wife and him while there, nice folks and a lot of amazing cars.
