RE: Orange County CA - Reasonable RV park?

As an alternative, can anyone tell me how I may fare parking my TV & 29' 5er in a residential area for a week? I fear I am turning into my Grandfather...That alternative is a really bad idea. Try Dockweiler Beach. Right next to LAX, so it's not quiet, but it's not bad. We're all turning into our parents. Dockweiler is $60-70 a ight depending on the site, and you get a narrow spot in a parking lotoverlooking the beach. We stay there because its close to our daughter, and in LA, close is priceless. Sue

RE: Roll Call Alaska 2014

We're still hanging out here. Anchorage for a few days then Fairbanks for a few then pointing south. We're in Talkeenta now. Moving into Denali on Thursday. We'll be at Rivers Edge on Sunday night. If the Weather forecast is right Denali will have beautiful weather Wed -Sat. Might get a chance to see the mountain. It looks like we're the last one up here. Safe travels. We are headed to Denali Highway for the second time. Should get to Cantwell and beyond tomorrow. Chance of seeing the northern lights tomorrow, so look out the window!

RE: Roll Call Alaska 2014

I guess we'll turn the lights out. We are headed to Chena Hot Springs, then at least part of the Dalton, MAYBE Denali Hwy again, then TOTW on the way down. Figure we'll be here till early Sept. Don't need much in the way of RV parks with the TC. Sue

RE: Newbie uh-ohs

After crunching my first cabinet door like you did, I now ALWAYS check every slide before I put them out. you would be surprised how many times some object moves or falls and would jam the slide. One other routine / rule. we never let ourselves be interrupted during the hitching up process. We each have our jobs and we concentrate on the task at hand. It all gets easier!

RE: Laundry and the full timer

I am agreeing with liveneasy we use the Laundromats at the Rv parks we stay at. We can do all of our laundry at one time 3 washers then 3 dryers full. Fold it in the laundry room and repack in the closet, 90 minutes done!. Visiting in the laundry room has benefitted us on great places to visit on that trip as well as future ones. I would much rather have the extra storage rather than a W/D. jesseannie Agree. many RV parks have laundry, so its not like we have to drive to town. 2 hours and we are done for 10 days and we can do other chores in between. No brainer. I love my closet space. Sue

RE: Wondering??

No house or rv lot. We keep a large chunk of $$ in a CD in case we change our minds. x2 we don't know where we would even WANT a home base, but I am sure someday we will so the money is there. Sue

RE: Quartzsite

After some forty years we have pretty much worn our bucket list out, but somehow missed Quartzsite. We have about two weeks this winter and are very flexible on the time. Last year there were some negative post on changes there. I would appreciate any info. from anyone who visited this past winter. Advice on where to stay, ( set up for boondocking ) and especially the best time to spend a couple of weeks. Any general advice would be greatly appreciated. ( the good, the bad and even the ugly ) Thanks We go every other year or so when we happen to be in the area. Do you have a group to go with or meet up with? I think you'll have a better experience if you don't sit out in the desert by yourself. Thats not what Quartzsite is all about, IMO. Sue

RE: Break up extended trip with flights home?

Another point- putting an RV in storage once a month woukd require that you empty and clean out the freezer and refrigerator each time, a huge pain and expense. I also agree, if you take the pets with you, you will feel less anxious about getting back home. Sue

RE: Is there a campground list website

Another good app is AllStays, but it requires network connectivity. That was a real deal breaker for me in Canada and Alaska where my phone only worked when I had access to WiFi. That is not actually true. we are traveling in Alaska and canada all summer. Allstays is the best app i have. If you open the app when you have cell signal, it downloads the basic map, and the map will be there the next time you open it, signal or not. Also, whether the map pops up or not, the camprounds, dump stations, Rest areas, walmarts, etc will always show up, as will the little blue dot that shows your location, making it easy to see what campgrounds etc are nearby, whether you have signal or not. Love this app. sue

RE: Roll Call Alaska 2014

We made a few days out of running from Seward to Valdez. Did a 'restocking' stop over at Anchorage, staying at Cabela's. Then took a slow ride on the scenic drive towards Valdez. Stopped just a bit past Glennallen, at Squirrel Creek (Lake?) Alaska Recreation Campground. A few spots overlook a small lake, and then a few more park you right along the small creek. (Our 40' fit into space 4, with the front windshield parked 7' from the creek. Had to back out the access road away, but not a big deal with a good spotter, and the DW is a good spotter:)!). Nice slow drive in the rest of the way to Valdez, and now at Bear Paws RV Park II. We have a holdover spot for one night, then move to one of the harbor view spaces for the next few days. Appreciated the recommendations for Bear Paws, really enjoyed talking with the owner Terry Gregg. Straight shooter, and I always like meeting veterans. . Best to all, be safe, have fun, Smitty we did the opposite of you, went from Valdez to Cabela's to Seward. In Valdez, we loved Stan Stephens, the museums, and especially the hatchery. even if its closed, drive over there and watch the bald eagles fish and the sea lions come ashore looking for, and catching salmon. awesome. gotta go a high tide though

RE: Have You Ever Wished Your TC Was Smaller?

we full time in a mobile suites and bought a Lance truck camper for summer use. We also have an F450, so could "go big". After looking at a bunch of Truck campers, we decided that for our use- living in it for months at a time, bigger is better. We originally thought we'd use it for our Great Alaska Trip this year, then sell it, but decided that if it was big enough and comfortable enough, we would keep it and use it each summer, which made it more worth the investment. So far we've been in it for 6 weeks and its so comfortable, we are making plans for next summer already. So, for us, no, we have no regrets about going big. We did, however, have to invest more in it than we thought, with sway bars and stable loads etc. Sue

RE: And it has arrived

you are lucky! We love etrailer and ordered our sway bars from them, drop shipped from Roadmaster, but Roadmaster TWICE sent us the wrong sway bar, and we were on the road for the summer already. Finally they said "you are only 300 miles from us- any chance you can come here, so we can get it right? " Well, we did, and they put the correct one on, and gave us a tour of the factory. nice people.

RE: Roadmaster Anti Sway Bars, first impression

Like you, we also added the stable loads, and they did help, but once we added the bigger Roadmaster swaybar, we were both breathing easier. We've been in the camper for 6 weeks straight now ( in Alaska) and man, what a difference. I think you'll find that it just feels better and better.

RE: Bucket List Trip in Early Planning Stages

we live in a 5th wheel but bought a used TC to take up to Alaska. We really just didn't want to tow anything. It wasn't just about road conditions, there are other factors. we always have everything with us with the TC, we don't have to drop off the trailer someplace and then go exploring, but the biggest perk has been that we have gone down numerous roads that we wouldn't have considered if we had brought the 5th wheel. We spent 3 days exploring McCarthy Rd in Wrangell- St. Elias NP. We just pulled off the road to sleep. we would have missed that, and several other great spots if we had brought the fiver. Sue
