Heber City Utah to Orem, Utah

Does anyone have any experience with Hwy 189 from Heber City to Orem? We have a large, high profile (13’4”) fifth wheel, triple axle. In my RV atlas it isn’t shown as an RV friendly road. We will have to go considerably out of our way to get to I 15 heading down to I 70 if we have to backtrack to the north. If 189 is doable, it would shorten our trip a good deal. Thank you so much in advance.

RE: Montrose or Glenwood Springs area

Thank you all for your suggestions, we will check out the parks in Montrose and forget Glenwood, for the time being. Have long wanted to stay at Ridgeway, but unfortunately with so many folks traveling in RVs, I haven’t been able to find a site. That being said, I think you can only stay 2 weeks in a state park and we are thinking we’ll pick 3 places to stay long term next summer, most likely a month in each. There’s also a Sun Resort park in Granby that we would also like to visit. I forgot about it in my original post. Does anyone have any experience with it?

Montrose or Glenwood Springs area

We are looking at parks for 3-4 week stays for next summer. We are looking at Centennial Park south of Montrose, Colorado and/or Glenwood Springs Canyon near Glenwood Springs, Colorado. Does anyone have any knowledge of these parks? If so could you tell me why you would or wouldn’t choose to spend a few weeks in either. If you have a better suggestion in Colorado, please feel free to give me your opinion. We are looking for cool temps, good golf, fly fishing, hiking, medical, decent grocery shopping, and fun people. We have also looked at Montana, Idaho, Oregon, and Utah. We would love to hear any suggestions you might have thee as well. Thank you so much for your help.

Lolo to Walla Walla, WA

Hello, and thank you in advance for your help/advice. We will be traveling from Lolo to Walla Walla then to Lake Wallowa in Oregon in mid July. It has been some years since we went from Pullman, Wa to Lewiston, Id. I recall that there was a huge drop off Hwy 195 down into Lewiston and thinking, “I would hate to make that pull out of this valley, going the opposite direction..”. We now find ourselves with that exact dilemma. We will be coming across 12 from Lolo. Mt and will continue on to Walla Walla. Will we face that same steep pull up to Clarkston, Wa. from Lewiston Id. I am assuming that we will, just want to be sure. Otherwise we will have to take a much more roundabout route using I 90 to Colfax then across 26 to 127 to 12 to Walla Walla. Thank you again, we are pulling a 24,000 lb fiver , hence my concern. Thanks again for any help.

Lolo Pass area Campgrounds

Could anyone recommend a full service park along Hwy.12 in Idaho. We need water and electric, sewer would be nice but can hold. We need good maneuverability room as our fiver has three axles. Thanks so much for your help.

Battery: AGM vs. Flooded Cell

Our 5er, 2016 Continental Coach, currently has 4 6v Interstate “Maximum” Deep Cycle Batteries. I am planning to replace them, and am considering the GC2 Trojan T-105 w T-2 Technology (flooded cell), and the GC2 Trojan T-105 AGM w C-Max Technology (sealed maintenance free). The obvious differences are ; maintenance free, and the higher cost for the AGM. Has anyone had experience with either or both of these batteries in terms of performance quality on a daily basis, and over time? If yes, is the higher price for the AGM version a good value vs.the (maintenance intensive) flooded cell option?

RE: Texas Hill Country Ideas

While the parks on 281 are nice, there is a lot of road construction between the parks and downtown. The traffic can be horrendous, particularly during rush hours. The same holds true for parks located off I10 between downtown and Boerne. For convenience sake, I’d say to stay either at the KOA or Traveler’s World. Haven’t stayed at the latter, but have read that many find it convenient. We have a 36 ft fifth wheel and had no problems at the KOA. In addition to the previously mentioned activities, the Briscoe Western Art Museum is worth a visit. The boat rides on the river are informative and entertaining. I would recommend Boudro’s, on the river(southwestern food, not necessarily TexMex), as well as Zinc, which is an interesting downtown bar with really good food. You can sit in or outside in either restaurant. Zinc is not on the river but does have an interesting space and is good for lunch. The Pearl is a fun place to visit. On Saturday there is a Farmer’s Market, there are restaurants and shops. The area was the home of the old Pearl Brewery and has been transformed into an entertainment, restaurant and hotel venue. It is fun to visit the Hotel Emma’s lobby. For TexMex, try Mi Tierra. It is touristy, but the food is pretty good. We like El Jarro out on 281 at Bitters. They have live music on Friday and Saturday nights and great Margaritas. If you do a search on this forum you should find a lot more about San Antonio and Fredericksburg.

RE: washer and dryer or combo

While we don’t full time, we travel 4-5 months a year. We had the Splendide washer and vented dryer (side by side) in our DRV, now have Whirlpool stackable, vented washer and dryer in our Continental Coach. The Splendide was OK, but the dryer was 110 and took FOREVER to dry most anything. I much prefer the Whirlpool set I have now, just be sure to investigate how the manufacturer installs the units and that they are securely stacked. I know from doing laundry at our son’s apartment that the single unit that washes and dries takes a really long time to complete a load. Like most others, I would not be without my own.
