RE: Northern California- cheapest place to buy new refrigerator?

Not sure of what Northern California means as some folks consider any thing North of the Tehachapis as North Cal. But in California from Sac to Bakerspatch there is a lot of independent dealers and Camping World some of those might price match if you do not want to ship to you. PPL in Texas also has some fair prices but not sure about shipping costs. I had a dealer in Utah use a price match from Amazon for a Dometic portable freezer / refrigerator. I walked in asked about price and he looked it up on Amazon. JimR

RE: CA to MO, best route?

Palm desert to Phoenix via I-10 north on 17 to Flagstaff then east on I-40 to OKC to I-44 to Eureka. From I-10 to I-40 there may be a shorter route up to Holbrook AZ through Payson but I am not familiar with that road JimR

RE: WiFi Hot Spot

I have AT&T and it works everywhere even in some pretty remote places. I use the Apple iPhone and use that as a hot spot. Just FYI JimR

RE: UTAH National Parks

I went through there a while back when the price was lower (dating myself) had no problems I did unhook the toad because I was over 50 feet long combined my height was within 6 inches all went well. The only tight spot for me was the exit on the east side the diamond shaped traffic signs and my mirrors matched up perfectly and the clearance left to right was very tight. have fun JimR

RE: Full time/South Dakota insurance question.

I think the term "unavailable" is not a correct definition about the availability of health insurance in SD for RVing folks. I am retired and I am on Medicare and a supplemental PPO insurance policy so it is possible. But I do feel very fortunate after hearing about some of the problems some folks do have (reading here and other forums). Good Luck JimR

RE: Possible Allison Transmission overfill

Exactly my dilemma .... On all my previous tranny services, the stick and the electronic had always been the same, so I never questioned it. So this time when the electronic said it was overfilled and the stick said full, I questioned the dealer that did the maintenance. He said believe the stick ... so I've let it go since the service, but now I'm going to believe the electronics .... Thanks to all you guys that helped me out ... Sounds like the dealer did not want to deal with it or he has a rectal cranial inversion. I would not go back but hey that is me. There are three types of Allison repair facilities one that is authorized to change the fluid and filters, the next is one that can change the fluid and filters and do work on the transmission on outside components then there is the third type they can tear down and operate on the transmission or completly rebuild it. I had a problem with the electronic check on my tranny and Allison took that as a serious issue and had me take it to a repair warranty dealer. They went over how to check the fluid with the stick so I would have a safe start (I already knew how) but they went over it a couple of times. They also stated that one should check the stick prior to running them when things get hot enough check the electronic test. The level on the stick will be up high I think above all marks. It is worse to run over filled than low within boundaries of course. When I change mine I will put in 20 quarts and then check the stick then run it and check the electronic level and then add 2 quarts so far so good. You should make the dealer remove the 2 quarts after all it is his mess up. jimR

RE: Propane tap on curb side

Ya that's true, I should try it first. Just didn't know if I wanted to spend money on the hose if it wasn't going to work, but I think I can borrow my buddies. About the hose, I bought a no-name hose and it did not work so I went to Lowes and bought a Weber brand and it worked just FYI JimR

RE: Crazy RVer Gets Arrested

Drugs? Alcohol? 5150? Or you just can't fix stupid? What is 5150? It is also the name of an energy drink in California that was pulled from the shelf of a popular supermarket because some people complained that it was making fun of those that were actually 5150. :S Also while responding to a med call it is the phrase that will slow you down just a little so you can get a good look around before you get there. jimR

RE: Propane tap on curb side

I am assuming that your tap is after the regulator just like mine and I run my Weber with its regulator on no removing it or modifications and work very well. As I understand things the RV regulator runs at 11 inches of wc and some BBQ regulators will run at a less pressure at 5.5 inches of wc. Try it first and see. JimR

RE: Blue OX Customer Service - Is this Fair ?

Although I use Roadmaster the bar you have is a good tow bar and I agree with the others that you need to find out why it bent then if you can get it cheaper else where do that. JimR

RE: Lack of "Assistance" from Road Side Assistance

and your going to let them re work on the unit.? not me. Camping World installed the "Invisibrake System" on my Jeep---that is why I went back to them. I went to Camping World and they fixed my Jeep. The connector for the "6-wire plug, male" was "wet" due to the rain we had. This connector is located on the front of my Jeep below the bumper. The "fix" is to silicone the rearside of the connector to prevent water from entering the connector. Thank you to everyone for all of your posts. Sorry but that does not sound right as I understand what you wrote, the plug for the toad for the lights and such got wet and stopped working?? The fix was to silicone the connector to waterproof it. I have a Jeep too but I do not have the brake system you have so I could be wrong but IMO that connector will breach and you will get moisture back in there. My plug is on the bumper and it gets all types of water and mud and junk from the road from off road and from running in deep water not problems yet. Just questioning the fix from a distance so there could be something there but does not sound right to me. JimR
