RE: Not new to camping but new to going it alone

Kathy, There is a group called Loners on Wheels (LOW)- It's an unfortunate name but a great group. You'll find great support and resources with this group. There are RV training courses where you can learn the best tips for towing and setting up camp. If you plan on travelling locally you can hire RV transporters to move your trailer. Lots of women we've met who travel within 300 miles of their homes use the transporters. Good luck with your adventures.

RE: New tire question

Michelins or Goodyears would be my choice.

RE: Indio to Buellton on a weekday morning

I work in the LA area and anytime I need to get out of town on a weekday I try to leave by 5AM or wait until after 9AM. So coming from Indio you would need to leave around 2:30AM or 6AM to pass through LA at 5 or 9AM. Your 138 route can get tricky due to traffic on I-15 and 138 in Palmdale/Lancaster

RE: Convert to tankless?

I agree with Rick Jay. `Navy' showers should be the mode for RV's. My Wife and I never run out of hot water either. X-3 Navy Showers

RE: Ever upgraded landing gear or motor?

When our landing gear developed problems (single Motor) the factory replaced with new landing gear with separate motors. Haven't had an issue in 10 years of use.
the bear II 04/10/18 04:55pm Fifth-Wheels

Your best bet is to get the largest RV you can afford that fits your needs now and at least 5 years into the future. Like others have replied you will be able to find a site in or near most tourist/sight seeing destinations. We travel in a 38ft 5th wheel and have always been able to find a place to stay wherever we have visited. When deciding on the size I always use this measurement...if we are stuck inside the RV for several days due to inclement weather would I be more comfortable in a 25ft or 38ft RV. 364 square feet vs. 250 square feet provides much more room to get away from others when cabin fever begins to kick in.

RE: San Diego Area For Two Months

Close would be Circle RV Resort or Vacationer RV Resort The best is Chula Vista RV Resort and Marina (It's on San Diego Bay)....the drive would be more than a 30 minutes to El Cajon. I-40 and then cut down to I-10 in Albuquerque in Phoenix cut down to I-8 and take it into El Cajon. There is a pretty good climb on I-8 as you leave the desert just past Ocotillo, CA.

RE: Insurance wtf???

Try Progressive or Millers RV insurance. Make sure you get an agent that is familiar with RV insurance policies....

RE: East Shore RV Park, San Dimas, California

With the high cost of housing in California many RV parks which offer long term rates/stays are beginning to see an influx of non-RV'er type tenants. This is creating a battle for space between a sure income (long term) and a transient income (typical RV'er). RV Parks are in business to make money. If a park is in town (like East Shore) folks who realize they can live less expensively in an RV vs. an apartment or house and be close to their job or public transportation will choose to live in an RV park. You should see how many RV's are parked along remote secluded streets in town now days. Cities are having a tough time dealing with this ever growing segment of the population. We try to stay in RV Resorts with stay limits or are outside of a major metropolitan area. The separate loops for permanent and transient works well at other RV Resort/parks.

RE: onan repair bill question

That's why I purchased two Honda 2000i generators when my Onan died. It was cheaper than having the Onan fixed and now I have the option of taking two, one or none depending on what our needs will be on a trip.

RE: How many trips?

We do at least one per month except in July thru Sept. we stay for the 3 months at an RV resort. Actually my DW stays for 3 months and I commute down on the weekends.

RE: Motor cycle on front receiver

I carried a Honda Trail 90 for many years on the front of my truck with no problems.

RE: Highway Driving

My basic rule of thumb for merging traffic is I move over, if possible, for vehicles that have slow acceleration. Cars not so much. I maintain speed. I will do my best to avoid an accident and have so far. Mostly I drive in the right lane on 3 lane highways and one lane to the left in 4 or more. It’s utterly amazing how many times I can’t get over and I glance at the merging car to see a totally surprised face. It’s like that 40 foot truck and camper just suddenly appeared beside them. X-2 everything including the surprised looks....

RE: Cracks in siding above door

I have several stress cracks on the Filon siding for my 1994 5th wheel. Two continually expand and I have to fill them with eternabond caulk every couple of years. One of these days I intend to clean up the cracks and shave the cracks to make a V shaped groove along the crack and then squirt some adhesive in between the siding and the luan to make sure there is a good bond. Once that dries then I plan to use "Bondo Hair" to fill the cracks, sand smooth and paint. Bondo Hair is Bondo with fiberglas hairs in it so it helps to fill gaps.

RE: Unlevel Fridge

I used to park my TT and now our current 5th Wheel at the curb and run the refrigerator overnight with no problem. The TT was 16 years old when we sold it fridge worked great. The 5th wheel is 22 years old and the fridge works great. To level side to side I would need to place a couple of 2X10s stacked.

RE: slide motor not working

My slide has quit working a few times and here's what was wrong: Usually it was a very tiny circuit breaker had tripped. My circuit breaker is located near the control unit for the slide which is near the battery compartment and fuse panel. The circuit breaker is black, about an inch and a half long with two wires hooked to it . The reset is a small micro switch; when you push it, it doesn't feel like it does anything but it will reset the breaker. One time one of the wire connections at the motor had come loose. The wire nut holding the connection together came off. I put on a new wire nut and all has been OK since.

RE: Holding loan for buyer

If you have good credit and are willing to pay a higher monthly fee loans are available from many sources. It just takes some searching for the buyer to get the needed financing. If they can't find a loan on their own then I would consider them a risk.
