RE: Warranty coverage

We put 10% of the purchase price into a maintenance/repair fund and add to it each month. Have been doing that for 14 years and the fund is always in the black. When something needs to be serviced or fixed/replaced, we do it. And if we identify something worn that could be a problem, we replace THEN, not wait for it to break so it will be covered. This fund also covers batteries/tires, which need to be replaced every few years.

RE: full timing

What type of rig and are you talking about maintenance on house or chassis? For house problems, their are mobile RV techs (and also for some chassis problems) that some RV Parks will allow to come and work on guests rigs. We don't do maintenance, we worked long and hard to be able to enjoy our retirement and that does not include a 6 gal oil change, etc. For morothomes, most places that do maintenance work/reparis have a place for you to stop for the night, often with power and sometimes water. They take the rig in the morning, push it out in the evening. We spent 6 weeks at the Coach Care facility in Elkhardt, IN, waiting on parts to get our rig fixed. Did lots of sightseeing during the days, laundry, shopping, etc.

RE: Camping World Disappointment

My problems with C2C are the vanishing number of parks that we can reserve online. I don't find the Good Neighbor Parks worth the effort, since I have to call, all most all of them take Passport America which is easier to use. I didn't mind paying more, but want to be able to reserve online, because trying to get people on the phone anymore is extremely difficult. Your not raising the nightly charge for over a decade pushed so many parks out of the system that it made the benefit of the membership very, very limited. Nothing secret about my disillusion with C2C

Camping World Disappointment

We are in Mesa, AZ for the winter and needed a small part for the motorhome. Went over to Camping World, which is now Gander. Wow, what a change and not for the better. Huge section given over to guns. And empty slots for all sorts of parts in their aisles of RV stuff. When I inquired, they said they didn't have the clip I needed in stock (though the tag was still on the empty hanger in the aisle), that their warehouse didn't have it, and referred me to other RV dealers nearby. Went home and ordered ONLINE from Amazon. Who knows what else I might have purchased, but was completely turned off. Guess you really do want to get rid of the RV business. C2C is almost none existent, not this.

RE: It’s that time again...to have some fun

We spent 1 winter in the RGV. No cultural events to speak of. Geocache the area from Edinburg up the Rio Grande is 2 weeks, went across to Progresso twice with friends. Visited all of the places listed above. After a month, we ran out of things to do and we don't sit around and just drink with some clique. On to Arizona for us, don't like the bugs in Florida.

RE: need help

If you have never been to Big Bend, pick up US 90 at San Antonio and head west. At Marathon, you can turn south and go to Big Bend National Park.. There are private RV parks outside of the National Park and a campground in the park. You can go on line and see about reservations that fit your time frame.

RE: need help

You need to stay on I-10 or below it. Do not even think about going any where north of I-10. How much time have you allowed? Remember, 1-10 is almost 1000 miles across Texas, so that will take a while. Where in Arizona are you going? I would suggest you make Van Horn your last night in Texas, and the next day drive clear to at least Las Cruces - we usually go to Deming because we're Escapees and there is an Escapees park in Deming.

RE: Recommedations

Big Bend National Park, if you haven't already. Wouldn't do Palo Duro after Thanksgiving, in fact you want to stay I-10 or south of it. Coast Bend area (Corpus Christi), Goose Island State Park in Rockport. From there, get on US 50 and head west to Marathon, then dip south to Big Bend.

RE: Good Campgrounds in west Texas off I-20

Try Hat Creek RV Park in Big Spings. It is a Passport America park and has some pull throughs for overnight PPA members. Lots of speed bumps, but just take your time. Onsite office does pizza and deliver to rig. We stopped there last summer. We also stop on the way across in Van Horn at the KOA, pricey but my hubby likes the little cafe for breakfast in the morning. Also an easy run from there to Deming, NM

RE: No one is heading south?

So I guess people are coming south, just no one posts on this forum anymore? No new snowbirds asking questions?

RE: No one is heading south?

So it is just that no one posts here anymore?

No one is heading south?

Are we the only ones who went south this year? :?

RE: Full-time in the Arizona heat

All of these come with wheels. At the very least, head up to Payson or Flagstaff for the summer.

RE: Snowbird funny

We talk about Wilbur, the gremlin who borrows things. He almost always brings them back, usually right after you’ve bought a new one. Ah, is he the one that moves it from that great place that I would always remember and then casts a spell so I forget that great place?

RE: Snowbird funny

Never fails, as soon as I buy something I find the one I lost. :R Wait - isn't that the proven way to find things? :B Barbara, did you guys get your new ballroom at Val Vista? Chris They are still working on moving electrical services around so I guess it is next fall that the new ballroom will be functioning. Like all of Mesa, we have construction all over the place in the park. All of the roads in Mesa seem to have construction going on - - they are even digging up the Main Street/Greenfield area AGAIN!

RE: We've arrived

Were on our way we stopped in vegas for two weeks leave Tuesday for Apache Junction Temperatures are moderating, really a neat time right now!

RE: We've arrived

Yes, BarbraOK, we got to Yuma on 9-17. Beautiful weather, Frys has started to raise their grocery prices, a couple of restaurants we have been in, the crowd is definitely picking up. One park here has 61 rigs coming in on 10-1. Yes, there is suppose to be a line outside of our park on October 1st. They run a Sept-Dec special (one price of all, or any part of, the four month) but most people consider September still to hot!

We've arrived

Well we got to Mesa, AZ a little early this year so that we can attend a concert and get a couple of medical things attended to. Has anyone else already arrived at their destination? It is so nice and quiet around here - no lines at any restaurant, just walk in and sit down!

RE: Help with full timing over the winter

Before giving advice I'd like to know what was wrong with Florida. Humidity, you'll love the SW, check into the Rio Grande valley. RGV isn't in the SW, it is on the Gulf of Mexico. Southwest = New Mexico, Arizona, California. States are the left side of the Rockies!
