RE: Portable BBQ grills

Current basic models are the Q1000 at 28.5 lbs. and the larger Q 2000 at 42.5 lbs. I put my larger unit on the deck at the house and now use the lighter Q100 on the road

RE: Sick of Pilot gas

Throughout our 9000 mi. trip this summer I found the Flying J/Pilot stations to be no more accessible or cheaper than other stations. A 3 cent discount is not enough to buy my business nor is 10% on camping with Good Sam parks. They need to seriously up their game IMHO. I called our CC company and informed them of our itinerary before we left and had not one single issue with using it. I also kept close watch on the account online as we traveled. Agree on the .03 cent a gallon - not a deal breaker. But 10% on camping fees really adds up - about $40 a week to us most weeks

RE: Verizion new Data Rates -And vets discount

My local store said only retired vets when I inquired. I already get a 15% discount for being a member of another group, and they said no additional discounts (which makes sense). It is on the base minute plan only, comes to about $6 a month. All vets your store was wrong

RE: Verizion new Data Rates -And vets discount

Went on line last night and 10 GB of data is now $80 I was able to change my plan and save $20 but it was not automatic I had to do it. Is that a limited time price, and it goes up after a year? No this is based on the current plan not a limited time offer

RE: Verizion new Data Rates -And vets discount

The 15% discount is on the "base" plan only, NOT on the entire bill. Not correct it is on the data not the line charges

RE: Brake Buddy Failures

Mine burned (smoked up ) the toad after 5 years of use. That is why I got a Air Force one system installed. I love it and do not worry any more. First failure by the BB ruined 2 front tires.

RE: Seattle area RV Park while on Alaska cruise

Check out Lake Pleasant RV Park in Bothell, WA. X2 Many times on here this topic has come up and Lake Pleasant RV Park wins every time. I have stayed there - very nice place. They advertise the storage business on there website. (if you can find it) 24025 Bothell Everett Hwy SE Bothell, WA 98021 (425) 487-1785 State Fairground way to far south of seattle in my opinion. We are in Seattle often visiting our son.

RE: Southwest Trip

About 21 miles North of Marfa is Fort Davis with McDonald Observatory near by. McDonald Observatory Also that is where you will find Davis Mountain State Park with some full hookup sites with cable tv. Enjoy Very good suggestions, while at Big Bend NP the crossing in the park is now open to Mexico - said to be a great location to visit.

RE: Ford Edge, Honda CRV or Jeep Cherokee, which to tow?

We towed a Jeep Liberty for 5 years with no problems. This spring we decided to get a new one which they do not make any more. The Jeep Cherokee was supposed to be the replacement. Settled on a Cherokee Limited 6 cylinder. We have had it since May 1, 2014. We soon found out that the new electronic parking brake is a headache since it is easily left on, but now know that sometimes has come on by itself. Once my wife and I both looked to ensure that it was off before towing it to get up on the interstate. Felt it swaying looked in the rear camera to see the tires smoking, etc. Had to stop on the entrance ramp and turn the parking brake off! Had to purchase new rear tires since they were very damaged. The parking brake has now come on at other times we did not turn it on. Is anyone else having this problem? Yes, we know if you open the door it will come on, but these were times when we did not open the door. The dealer says they cannot do anything until I remove the after-market wiring harness (installed so the rear lights will work while towing). I will disconnect them, but do not see how that has anything to do with the parking brake. The latest problem is when we hit a somewhat rough road the front wheel do not realign causing the Cherokee to sway until we stop. Have to go straighten the steering wheel sometimes. This has happened about four times in the last two months. We only have about 7000 miles on the Cherokee. I am sure the dealer will blame it on the tow bars or something else, but will stick with it. Please let me know if anyone else is experiencing the same problems when towing the 2014 Jeep Cherokees. We have to stick together if we are to get anything done. I have towed mine 39 times for a total of 7088 miles and have no problems what so ever. (I have a spreadsheet on it) I have the Demco basepla1te. I have 16000 total miles on it

RE: Owning CLass A or C vs buying a vacation home

Welcome to the forum. In a perfect world you would drive your Class A to your beach house. However, for most of us, that isn't going to happen. A vacation home can be an investment, the RV will lose value. But, you can't take the beach home across the country. :) There are many things to consider for each option. My advice is, travel while you can. You don't know what life will hand you tomorrow. It all comes down to what Dick B said, it's a personal choice. Let us know what you decide. Yep when I get too old to drive the MH I will settle down but for the past 5 years we are having a fun traveling all over the country and Canada and seeing the sights. We travel about 6 months of the year and live in our downsized townhouse the other 6 Being a retired CPA I think you need to make sure whatever you decide you can afford it as you have an extra 15 years of retirement than most people

RE: Fort Davis, TX

You missed Davis Mountain State Park. It is just outside of Ft Davis - even has a Ft Davis mailing address They have about 100 sites of which 27 full hookup sites with cable tv even, for only $25 a night. We stayed there for a week. Lots of animals in the campground. I would stay there I know Prude is just an open field - The Fort Davis Inn is right on Main St and very small. Its advertised rates are more than the state park We used to live next to you in Richardson TX, I hope DS is prepared for how small fort davis is and how remote. They do have one grocery store.

RE: Where to stay in San Francisco?

Thanks for the replies. I'm not to concerned with the lack of fire pits or the tight spots. As you say you're there to see San Fran. I'm more just trying to find a place with a friendly group of Rvers touring. These types of places have a nice vibe. I get bummed out when you're in a place full of perminant residence, I just kind of kills it for me. I also like places that are full, they have energy. KOA Petaluma is for you, we stayed there a week - we took the ferry into SF from Larkspur, parking was 2.00 and senior rate on the ferry was 10.00 each round trip. In SF we got around on buses, cable car and trolley cars. It was quite easy to get around. Senior rate on the bus and trolley was .75 and the cable car is 6.00 for everyone We stayed at the KOA in April of this year weekly rate was 289, Marin park was $140 more on the weekly rate
