RE: Beatty Nv to Winnemucca Nv

If you are talking about the 376 out of Tonopah to the 50 to the 305: I take that road 1-3x/year and never an issue.....40' MH with Jeep....Just watch the weather.....Although 72 today in Elko, Nv it can change quickly..... The road though is very good ......

Short term storage Pittsburgh or DC area summer 2015

Doing a "two part" east coast trip this summer and going to be in DC area July 2015....Have the MH in my sig below... Looking for a recommendation for covered storage for about 2 months summer 2015..need to fly back to SoCal for 6-8 weeks mid-trip and then we will resume our trip home about Sept 1st...... Storage could be anywhere from DC to the Pittsburgh area (trying to be near a major airport), going to return to Nevada in the MH via Pittsburgh/Indiana/North Dakota...... Any recs in the DC to Pittsburgh area?? I talked to one underground storage area near Pittsburgh but they cannot do anything over 12'....

RE: Clas A Drivers license requirement State of Nevada

RV CONUS----- Got my Class B in Elko 6 mos ago (thank you Nv Nick for the assist at the time)...... Has a 24K lb GVWR Class A MH previously and no special lic required....Got a 40' Class well over 26K lbs and had to get the Class B to be legal.....It has air brakes and had to take both the written and practical for that also......Fairly straight forward testing with no surprises......26K lbs GVWR is the cutoff in Nevada.....Some states (Calif) have it set at anything over 40'...... Nv Nick, among others, is right on with his answers.......

RE: Cool Double or Triple...An AC Question

JP---- Ref your question on cold weather.....The Oasis is a great system...Handles the cold very well.... I was boondocking in the Ruby Mtns 2 weeks ago, just outside Elko, about 7000' and it got down to about 5 above....The Oasis on burner handled it fine..Set the temp in both zones and all was fine....I have found that the fireplace, if you have hookups/gen on, puts out a good amount of heat also if needed.....I dislike running the gen so find that the Oasis for heat in really cold weather (on burner) works for us.... Pleased with Newmar.....esp their customer service.... Leaving for San Diego in 3 weeks so this camping at near zero degrees will be a distant memory..!!

RE: Cool Double or Triple...An AC Question

I have the MH in my sig.....It is the 4018.....I have 2 15K's.......I had it in 105-108 degree heat this summer and the 2 15k's were fine.....Just get them on in the morning and try not to play catch-up and they should be fine... That said, I agree if you are ordering new I would go with 3 a/c if you get into 115 degree heat routinely.....Agree with previous post, best to have too much than too little.....But 105 degrees and 2 15k's were fine for us.....

RE: Need windshield installer in San Diego area

Insurance is paying for it minus the deductible.....Not the issue.....Issue is: I can take it anywhere I want, I just wanted to get a good recommendation rather than a glass company that rarely does MH windshield's.....My insurance company has a recommendation but it may not be the best, just the cheapest.... In talking to Newmar they were very emphatic about getting a company that does MH's and one-piece windshields pretty routinely...The customer service guy I spoke with said they see quite a few issues with MH windshields put in by a company that may do very well on cars but the MH is different...Many not put in properly leak or the tech is not equipped to handle the larger size of the MH w/s....

Need windshield installer in San Diego area

Have the MH listed below...Rock from truck, w/s is beyond repair....Driveable but needs replacement.....I will be in the San Diego area mid-Nov and wondered if anyone has a recommendation for getting this done.....I have called around in the SD area but really would like a rec from someone with some firsthand experience.....Getting these large one-piece windshields installed correctly is sometimes a bit tricky..... Newmar recommended one of their dealers in the area but I had a bad exp there couple yrs ago and will not go back.....(Holland RV)...

RE: Purchase Out Of Area &Warranty Issues

I live in NE Nevada most of the year and just bought a new Dutch Star in SoCal......Never gave a second thought to warranty issues after talking to Newmar before the sale......Anywhere I want, they will authorize warranty work, within reason...... Example----power water hose reel went out.....Did not want to take it to Twin Falls for warranty work.....Called Newmar--they said give them about an hour and they will call me back....They called back and they said take it to the local Freightliner dealer here in Elko...Newmar shipped an entire new reel to FL, they installed it and within an hour I was back in business....All under Newmar warranty...That is service (and clout too... to be able to talk a large FL service center into fixing something on the coach side of a MH under Newmar's warranty)......

RE: Looking for boondocking near Bishop / Big Pine

Go a bit south to the Lone Pine area and try the Alabama Hills.....I have camped all through the Eastern Sierra area and this is my favorite..... Much much movie history in the area.....The Movie Museum in Lone Pine is worth a visit.....

RE: RV Storage Garage

I would add a sump/drain in the middle of the bay......Lifesaver if you wash the MH indoors.....Assure whoever does your concrete/flooring to angle all sides slightly towards the drain....I built a 50x40 and this drain is the best addition I added during construction.....

RE: Changing Insurance to State Farm, your input requested

Had State Farm for many yrs......I recently got a quote from another highly recommended company that specializes in MH's and they were 800 more per yr than I am paying for the MH below......A bit more coverage for that price but not 800 dollars worth..... I get the multi-car discount and the thing that keeps me with SF is not the price but the ability to walk into the office of my agt and talk to her......

RE: workhorse or tritan

There was a significant improvement in Fords in 2006 (both engine and trans).........If you are debating something in that time frame, might be worth it to take this into consideration.......
