RE: Onan 4K generator

I know you probably already checked this, but, make sure the fuel level in your tank is enough to reach the pickup tube for the generator.

RE: white dust coming out of AC vents - any ideas?

One remote possibility that I doubt is the cause, but... Grab some of the dust and put it on white sheet of paper. Place another sheet over it and rub them together. Is the resulting smudge silverish? If so, your evap may be disintegrating. Have you recently cleaned the A/C or sprayed anything up into the return air duct? Your A/C is way too young for this to be a normal age issue, so if the aluminum is disintegrating, you need it checked quickly.

RE: Route from Phoenix to Florida

Could it be that I-10 is direct to the "panhandle" while I-20 takes you further north just to come back south? Both planners will give you the option of selecting I-20 and swinging back to the 10 anywhere you pick, but unless you tell them you want some roundabout way, they pick the closest, fastest and easiest route.

RE: Beating the heat...

ASNF just issued a Stage II Fire Alert for the park/forest. They may be trying to avoid what's happening over at Tonto.

RE: Running generator all night - Cpap

This guy was running his generator due to simple ignorance, not need. ADA or not I don't think you can just do anything you want to power your medical device. Sounds about right! For private and government campgrounds where generator restrictions are in place, the RVer with a medical need for using a generator can't just fire it up as some absolute right. Under the ADA (private and local governments) and the Rehabilitation Act (federal lands), the exemption from the rules for disability need is an accommodation. The provider of the services must attempt to provide that accommodation as best they can without unduly burdening the disabled camper. That accommodation can be locating the camper away from others, providing an electrical hookup, or even providing some alternative power source. It's the duty of the campground providers to figure out what is reasonable. For certain federal locations (and even some local government locations) where sound is a critical part of experience and mandate, they do have the right to refuse an accommodation if the sound violates the intended purpose of that location's needs.

RE: Brake parts for 1994 winnie minnie

Are yo sure it's a Mini-Winnie and not a Sundancer? That model# is assigned to the Itasca line made by Winnebago and not the Winnebago Mini-Winnie line.

RE: campground reservations

What part of Arizona? AZ has vast weather swings based on location. Phoenix could be 115 while Flagstaff is only 75. You could have a nightly temperature in Tucson of 95 while Williams is 45. A fifty plus degree difference based on location is to be expected and is why "where" in AZ is an important discussion item.

RE: Indio, CA or Yuma, AZ Casino parking

If you're a guest of the hotel, you can park your RV overnight at the casino. If you're a participating customer of the casino, you can park while playing. But, if you're just using it as a free campground, that section was closed.

RE: CC&R dated 1973 says no RVs, trailers, boats can be stored

After speaking with the code enforcement division, and the city planner, there is no CITY code I would be violating at this particular residence, parking the dutchstar the way I have indicated, which is, on the concrete pad that is to the left of the house along the side of the property and behind the gate. You're confusing two issues. Most municipalities do not enforce CC&R's. What you need from local codes isn't about enforcement but the definition of "parking" and "storage". Like AZ, NM also uses the "common meaning as defined by local authority". Even if the city or county has no rules on the RV, their definition of parking and storage would apply to the CC&Rs absent any specific wording in the CC&Rs. The 1973 CC&R document has not been updated since 1975 and indicates that it lasts 20 years. In which at that time "Auto renews" for 10 year successions unless there is a vote by the land owners to discontinue the CC&Rs or a portion of it. So, by that definition, the CC&R's are still valid, but there is no forum held to discuss the continuance or discontinuance of the rules or any part of the rules. You're again confusing two issues. The CC&R are valid and enforceable per NMS Chapter 47. Absent any wording in the CC&R as to the abolishing or amending the CC&R, it resorts to the property owners to obtain a court acceptable agreement to eliminate or change the CC&R. Just because it's not written in the CC&R doesn't mean they can't be enforced through a private lawsuits. Any property owner can sue any other property owner for violating the CC&R. Based on NM case law, unless the the violation is against good public order, the courts generally uphold the CC&Rs. You can't change the rules because there is no forum held to update/change/delete any of the rules, so they just kinda go on and on. Yes you can. NM Statutes say you have to obtain an agreement by the majority of property owners to change the CC&R if there is nothing in the document establishing a formal mechanism. A property owner opposed to the change can sue you and it would require a Judge to review the agreement and if the majority agreed to the change, it's changed. The process and procedures is a bit sketchy but there is ample cases in NM on this and your lawyer should be able to walk you through the process. If there have been repeated, continuous and open violations with no enfacement, it appears that will go greatly in your favor if you sue to abolish or are sued to enforce the restriction. The easiest seems to come down to someone writing a formal document that the the majority agrees on and it survives any opposing court challenge.

RE: Heavy Duty leveling block suggestions

I use the HD FasTen Blocks for Dual Wheels. They are larger than the standard ones so they can spread out the load on the ground. I have used them as a emergency frame jack stand when fixing my RV on the side of the road. They are super easy to go from a block to a ramp. I have used them for traction boards when needing to get out of snow, mud or sand. When not being used for leveling, they make a great campsite ottoman. You can even use them as a chocks. The down side is they have been known to fracture when placed on very uneven ground and weight has been applied to a spot over a void. I have also seen them crack when larger heavy RV's use them as traction boards. Because of their larger size, you have a higher chance of having voids under them when used for static purposes. But likewise, on soft ground, the large size means more stability (honeycomb design) as they form into the soft material making their own level surface.

RE: CC&R dated 1973 says no RVs, trailers, boats can be stored

KMB, they way ti works in AZ is the CC&R's are enforceable by private lawsuit if there is no HOA. Any property owner in that sub-division can sue you to enforce the CC&R. It will be up to a Judge to decide if the CC&R will be enforced as written, enforced with modifications, will not be enforced as it goes against public policy, or not enforced as it's been abandoned due to no prior enforcement of violation. as for the dissolution of the CC&R, there usually is a mechanism in the CC&R that is also done via a private action lawsuit. It may not actual be in a section for dumping the entire CC&Rs but it may be under a section about modernizing or updating the CC&Rs. In the absence of any specific wording in the CC&Rs about duration, it defaults under AZ law to municipal regulations. You need to find out what definition the municipality (town, city, county) has in their ordnances on issues of duration (not to be confused with where it applies on the property but only the definition of duration for "parked" or "stored") if not spelled out in the CC&R's. You will find that many of those older CC&R's are still legal simply because nobody ever decided to take action to dissolve them. Sadly, attempting to get rid of them could backfire and result in people suing each other to enforce them.
ItsyRV 02/22/21 01:36pm General RVing Issues

Will check them, I know I replaced them about 3 years ago but like I say the sun out here and 120 deg, temps destroys everything...put solar street lights on the house back in may and by aug they were all destroyed, one even fell off the mounting pole when the sun just made the plastic housing so brittle that it just fell off... ty and when you do find and fix the leak, make sure you are coating all the exposed non metallic parts for UV protection. You can use 303 as a general coating that works good on everything or something like TriNova that is excellent for rubber type parts. Unlike hard plastics, the flex parts need that extra protection to keep them from getting brittle and stay flexible.

RE: Light Japanese Trucks used as Tow Vehicles here

Yeah, when Isuzu calls it "light", they are talking light in their commercial lineup. Here's the US GM version of the same vehicle and we would never call them "Light US Trucks". Chevrolet LCF Cab-Over

RE: Ladder rung end plastic insert

I go to the RV salvage yard and they usually have a bin full of exterior and exterior ladder end caps of various types. They may also be able to tell you what hack is available if unable to find an exact match. They average about $5 each out of the bin (not reconditioned and you match it up) or $10 if bagged (cleaned and labeled).

RE: AZ hwy 88

As Janss linked, check the Open/Close status prior to any trip for the road section you plan to travel as various things can cause a closure. The paved section is doable in a large RV so long as you're aware that some section may require you to take up the whole width due to turns. As for the unpaved sections, it's mostly doable but common for RV's (any tall vehicle) heading to Roosevelt Lake from AJ to get up and personal with the rockface from time to time. And if rutted, you're in for a jolting ride. Prior to the fire, it wasn't uncommon to find souvenirs from RVs along the rockface or even articles that were shaken loose from an RV. Also, along some stretches, the cliff side has no room to pull over so those on the rockside are expected to yield to them. That adds to the chances of scrapping the rocks in narrow lanes and turns. I would say, once passed the towers (Fish and Game) and certainly ADOT, you may want to consider turning around even if the road is open.

RE: Camping near water in AZ

Lake, river, running wash or wastewater retention/recharge? Also, full hookups, partial, nothing? Paradise Lake. 10 minutes from North Phoenix. Paradise Lake is south of Phoenix in AZC, did you mean Lake Pleasant?

RE: Indian Tribal road closure of federal highways ????

Indians can't close Federal highways, they don't own those. Not entirely true. They can not close an Interstate, but they can close Interstate entry/exit points on their land for health and safety reasons so long as it's not a connection to another Interstate or barred by agreement. They also have the right to close or restrict travel on any road on their land if it's specifically for health and safety reasons. In many states, such as Arizona, the nations have agreements in place to keep most roads open for thru travel. Odds are you will be able to travel along those roads if going through a tribal community, just access off that road may be restricted. Most secondary native roads can be closed by the nation as they see fit, be it labels as a state or county numerical road.

So CampinHappy, as you can see, on the question of non disposable dish sets, (I believe that was what you were asking about) Corelle is the standout favorite.

RE: Apache Junction, AZ to El Paso, TX

Depends on what you want to accomplish during the trip. If it's the fastest time with the least aggravation and lesser of everything but sightseeing, you can't beat the 202 to the 10 to El Paso. If you negotiated Main Street in Mesa/AJ, I10 through Tucson is a cake walk in an RV so don't let that discourage you. It will come down to the time you have to spend enroute. As a side note, the trip from Main and Signal Butte to Wild Horse exit at I10 was only 30 minutes. That same time won't even get you to the 60/79 turnoff. And if there some slow poke RVer in from of you on 60, (or any of those back roads) you may want to plan an overnight before El Paso.

RE: Dump Station Etiquette???

Most folks in line don't natter, so long as you keep moving ahead with the job. Standing around looking at your navel will irritate the next guy. Yep, that is my trigger. Just be ready to do the deed when it's your turn. I could care less if you spend some extra minutes on a quick rinse, just keep moving and not be some slow sloth with a 10 minute grandpa hose coupling routine combined with a repacking as if shipping delicate china to the moon!
