RE: Anyone familiar with I40 through NM and AZ

You live in one of the most beautiful areas of the country. We lived in Grand Junction for a few years. Enjoy it. We are looking forward exploring a bit more of Colorado since we have the TT. Should be easier than having to find lodging and kennel the dog. I didn't mean that you should stay in Colorado only. Just saying it is a great starting place to explore the west. Safe travels.

RE: Anyone familiar with I40 through NM and AZ

If you have driven on I-70 west of Denver, you have been "baptised", so to speak, in mountain driving. You will be fine if your DH is a responsible and careful person, as I am sure he is. As my kids used to say: "chill". You live in one of the most beautiful areas of the country. We lived in Grand Junction for a few years. Enjoy it.

RE: How long for your air pressure to drop?

Whenever I stop for the night or longer I purge the air suspension. This should be done before lowering jacks. Can you explain why? My MH has an optional automatic leveling system. It dumps the air before leveling the coach. Makes sense to me. If you don't dump, the jacks have a much longer travel.

RE: Route from Moab to Provo

N to I-70, W to 6, N to I-15, then N to Provo. Good road all the way, Soldier Summit on 6 is not bad.

RE: Zephyr Cove Lake Tahoe

It has been 5 years since we were there, but there was a boat excursion on the lake leaving across the highway from Zephyr Cove Campground. And the Cinnabon place near the gondola is enticing. We enjoyed the casinos also, but that is out for you.

RE: camping in Utah

Salt Lake City has a need for more good places. We have family living just south of SLC (in Sandy), visited many times, and we have always stayed at Mountain Shadows RV Park in Draper. The quality of the sites varies widely; some are great and some are a pain for a large MH. Understand you have a Roadtrek, (class B?). You would probably not have a problem. We have always gotten good service. Staff is first rate. It is close to the interstate (on a dead end road) but the noise has not bothered us. Have never felt unsafe anywhere in the SLC area. The KOA in town is a good park, but not convenient for our purposes.

RE: Camping around Pocatello/Idaho Falls?

If looking for an over-nighter with electric, water, dump on site, nice shower and bathrooms, try North Bingham County Park in Shelly, ID. just south of Idaho Falls. About 2 miles off I-15 on the Snake River all sites are pull-thru. Exit 108. Second this recommendation. We were traveling through and decided to overnight here. Such a nice place we decided to spend another night and relax.

RE: Alarm Company Video vs. Do It Yourself

Thanks everyone for the advice. Seems like there are several good alternatives.

RE: Alarm Company Video vs. Do It Yourself

Considering putting one of those video surveillance systems around my home, the kind you can monitor on your computer. Anyone have experience with the alarm company kind or the ones you can buy on Amazon and install yourself? Haven't compared prices. Looking for experience. I know that the alarm company (ATD) can instantly call the authorities, etc. and will cost more with the monthly charge. Already have a home contract. I wouldn't assume that an alarm company will "instantly" call the authorities. Full disclosure: I already have a house system through ATD. We can instruct them to call whomever we choose, police, us, or a neighbor. I am asking for experience using this kind of system with added video OR a stand alone video unit. Thanks for all the replies so far.

RE: Water

Lots of good answers. Some state information/welcome centers also have potable water. They are usually very helpful at these centers.

RE: Analysis Paralysis...Class A vs 5th wheel for family

My two cents: Have traveled a lot coast to coast in the last few years. Haven't seen many motorhomes with large families. I'm sure there are some, but not nearly as many as enjoy camping in towables. Heard a saying once. "A motorhome is comfortable to sleep 2, eat 4, and travel 6."

RE: Winnebago recommendations.

For our fourth MH, two years ago my wife fell in love with an 04 Winnebago Ultimate Freedom. Could be prejudiced since it is our first Diesel, but we love it. Last summer we went to Forest City to the W. factory, took the tour, etc.

RE: Trip from Orange County to South Lake Tahoe

Thanks for the replies, we are excited to go a bit farther north. Looks like 395 is the way to go. I would like to head north from our house (Chino Hills) to Mammoth and camp there on the way, but fear the drive will be too long for our kids (6 hours)? Any nice campgrounds approx. 4 hours up 395? Thanks again for the help, Andy W. Not sure how far it is from your place, but Boulder Creek Campground in Lone Pine is a good place for a stopover. We enjoyed the area also around Lone Pine. Agree that 395 is the preferred route to Lake Tahoe. I would do the Route 50 also to get to the lake.

RE: Lake Havasu

We were there about five years ago. They tried to make an English village out of the place with small shops near the "London" bridge. All of them were out of business. (Of course the bridge is the old London bridge, not the Tower bridge which is still in London. They are still laughing about that in England.) All that were left were overpriced souvenir shops and fast food establishments. Lots of hot rodding on the river. Somebody approached us while going in trying to sell us timeshares. Not our favorite place in the world. Of course it is good advice to avoid the summer.

RE: I 10 Mobil Tunnel

Been through many times. No stopping or inspection required. Just watch your speed on the west end.

RE: Branson or not?

Avoided Branson for years. Finally went at DW's urging. As others have said, many different shows, very G rated, and patriotic, at least the ones we attended. Loved the Presley family show. Didn't think the prices were exorbitant. Also did the Showboat dinner show on the lake. Had fun. Lots of traffic, but not Vegas or LA type volume. It is really a small town. We stayed at the KOA. Good place with nearly free breakfast, and they can get tickets for you and save a lot of hassle.

RE: Hallsville, TX

Have overnighted in Hitching Post a couple of times in our MH. Don't think I would like to spend the summer there, but opinions may vary.

RE: RV friendly gas stations

The Next Exit is an Interstate traveler's book that lists everything on every exit. It marks the RV friendly gas stations. "The Next Exit" is a valuable guide for interstates, but alas, not US-90. Get on Google Earth. You can follow along the highway and look at all the stations from an aerial and a street level view. For instance, it looks like the Chevron at the intersection of highway 14 and US-90 near New Iberia is a good bet. Of course, actual experience of some responders is the best.

RE: Mobile AL I-10 Tunnel

Traveled I-10 tunnel on Jan. 13th, 2014. No problems. Just watch your speed on the west end.
