RE: F/T RVer Health Insurance - Feedback

We had both and would suggest going elsewhere. Wouldn't pay for a flu shot and DW's female tests. If you have an existing med issue, they won't cover anything for the 1st yr of coverage. Didn't work with Mike Neighbours Good luck

RE: Slides out or autolevelers down first?

On my 2014 DP with airbags as I posted prior it is advised to drop air from the airbags, deploy leveling jacks With the engine running (will not operate if not) then move the slides out after the engine is shut down, slides will not operate with the engine running, nor for that matter will the awning deploy with the engine running. My slides will work while the engine is running. While my directions from Newmar doesn't say to; one very experienced and knowledgeable poster suggests (on newer Newmar DPs) to run the engine while using the slide motors because they are connected to the chassis batteries. All this leads to as per stated previously, each needs to follow the directions for their units.

RE: Slides out or autolevelers down first?

On our rig, while aired up slides out first then level. On leaving air up bags, slides in then jacks up. That must be something new for Newmar, they were always level first then slides. I'm thinking maybe the full wall slide has changed things from the old days. My 2015 Dutch Star instructions says to leave aired up, don't level first, deploy slides. Same as Ro"n"Joe. I believe this instruction is there to protect the full wall slide. Yes it's backward to some but that's why you follow mfg's instructions. I'm 8 years in following Newmars instructions & no issues. I'm guessing you have the newer "Star Chassis". I was told at factory pickup that the slideouts are setup to work with airbags inflated. Nothing was mentioned about protecting the full wall slide.

We liked Marco Polo Land Campgrounds in Cavendish. Big rig friendly and stayed 7 nights last summer.

RE: Big Bend National Park - RV PARKS

2X on BJ's in Terlingua for 7 nights last March. IMO nicer than Big Bend Resort down the road. Don't bother going with a clean RV since campgrounds are dusty.

RE: No shortage of RVs

Not the case with Newmar. Dealer allotments cut way back and the reason why they aren't willing to deal. Was at the factory 2wks ago and one guy got just 16% off MSRP on his Dutch Star
