RE: Who can be the last poster?

We have been lucky. We are at Sun Outdoors San Diego Bay (RV Park) and it was 70+ today. Can't go any further west.:B Bill

RE: Not for us

I reread most of this. The OP is just moving from a nice house with lots of room to a small RV. He and wife are still working and not traveling. I can see why they are not happy with the experience. By the way I am part time, but last year we drove 11,600 miles visited 21 states and stayed in 51 campgrounds. Not bad for part time. Bill

RE: B.R. AC not blowing cold air

Have you checked the thermostat to make shure it is set to the right "mode"? Bill

RE: 2022 Tiffin Open Road, Ford 7.3L V8. Exhaust system too hot

After 6000 miles on new 2022 Class A with Ford 7.3L V8 happened to notice melted wire loom, scorched and heat damaged electrical conduits and scorched aluminum faced insulation mats under coach in area of exhaust pipe and catalytic converter. Very concerned of course. Dealer and factory say motor diagnostics are normal and that "no other similar issues reported with any other Open Roads they know of nationwide." After almost 8 weeks in the shop dealer and factory do not yet know what to do to fix the problem. Curious if any other Open Road owners or other RVs owners with new 7.3L V8 have seen evidence of scorching or heat damage under the coach especially near the exhaust system. Any info on remedies undertaken would be much appreciated I would report al the damage under your warranty. Get it on record. Bill

RE: 2022 Tiffin Open Road, Ford 7.3L V8. Exhaust system too hot

Interesting, Sounds just like the problems they had with the old 460 V8s. Do a search for 460s running hot/hot exhaust manifolds. Some ran air ducts to let more air in to flow over the engine and exhaust. Bill

RE: Not for us

To answer a few questions, we had originally thought we would try workcamping and travel around but seeing that most jobs wanted someone to do some kind of maintenance work, landscaping or cleaning rental cabins and bathrooms that isn’t something we wanted to do. Yes, I’m sure there are jobs like at the resort we are in that are office jobs, security or ranger jobs but I’m sure those will go to the park residents or experienced people first. I had an opportunity to start a machinery distributorship with a partner and with that being what I did for most of my career that made the most sense and will bring in the most money. No, I don’t prefer mowing lawns to dumping tanks. That is why we will likely wind up renting a townhouse or condo and leave all that to someone else. I leave my black tank closed until it gets to 2/3 full or more. I don’t want any build up to occur which would cause more problems down the road so I dump every 4 days and wash it out once a week. Seriously you didn't do a search on "work camping" To find out what it involved??? I think you should sell the RV now as the market is up Call and talk to NIRVC they are looking for newer coaches. 770-979-4051. Bill

RE: Route from Ft Worth to Estes Park

Great info. Thank you Will follow your advise Mtray927, Well I have to ask what the rush is to get to Estes Park? There are several places to explore on the way. You were talking about a 3 month trip after you get there. I live in FW to and drove up that way last year at least 3 times.. My first stop was the Oasis in Amarillo,2715 Arnot Rd, Amarillo, TX 79124.https://www.myrvoasis.com/ I generally make Enchanted Trails RV Park & Trading Post my next stop in Albuquerque. 14305 Central Ave NW, Albuquerque, New Mexico 87121 . Can't help it I have some restaurants I like in the area. http://www.enchantedtrails.com/. My next stop if going North is Santa Fe Skies RV Park, 14 Browncastle Ranch, Santa Fe, NM 87508. http://www.santafeskiesrvpark.com/. Same thing lots to do and see and good food. Next stop up I-25 is Raton Pass Camp & Café Not hard to find it is at the top of the pass, check their website for directions. http://www.ratonpasscamp.com/ I stayed in the Loveland area last time at Riverview RV Park, 2444 River Rim Rd, Loveland, CO 80537. River Rim Rd is actually hiway 34 that takes you to Estes Park and through RMNP. When we left Riverview RV Resort we went north to a rally in Gillette, WY then came back down on the western side of the hills to Granby, CO. 1051 Summit Trail, Granby, CO 80446. It is on the outher end of Hiway 34. I would recommend pre driving 34 with your toad first. It is a spectacular drive and interesting. Any questions just ask. Have you joined any of the local clubs?

RE: Unique eateries

To many great places to eat out there to name all of them. Lets start with a few of my favs from this last year of travel. Lets start with Taste of Maine Restaurant,161 Main St, Woolwich, ME 04579. http://www.tasteofmaine.com/ Classic Main tourist spot with good food. Then moving south Gritty McDuff's Brew Pub, 187 Lower Main St, Freeport, ME 04032, https://grittys.com/ Also in Freeport Jameson Tavern, 115 Main St, Freeport, ME 04032, http://www.jamesontavern.com/ When Pigs Fly Restaurant & Pizzeria,(and amazing bakery)460 US-1, Kittery, ME 03904, https://www.whenpigsflypizzeria.com/. The Parkview in Westfield New York. Who would expect a 4 star+ dining experience in a small village. Went back several times. http://www.parkviewcafeandcatering.com/ Lets jump back closer to home for me there must be 50 places in the Fort Worth Dallas metroplex that are/should be on the list. But lets start with Babe's Chicken, 6700 NE Loop 820, North Richland Hills, TX 76180, https://babeschick.wpengine.com/, and Sweetie Pie's Ribeyes a sister restaurant. https://sweetiepiesribeyes.com/. it is next door to Babe's. The Big Texan Steak Ranch & Brewery,7701 I-40 East, Amarillo, TX 79118 https://www.bigtexan.com/ Yes that place. It is always fun to watch the people trying the big steak challenge and the smaller steaks are pretty good. They will send a limo to pick you up at the RV park. Lets move west Best restaurant in New Mexico Rancho de Chimayó, 300 Juan Medina Rd, Chimayo, NM 87522, http://www.ranchodechimayo.com/#welcome2 I like this place for the food and atmosphere. If the weather is nice I like to get a spot on the patio. Church Street Cafe,2111 Church St NW, Albuquerque, NM 87104. https://www.churchstreetcafe.com/. That is enough for now. Bill

RE: Toilet Fills with Water Pump On

I had this happen on my last RV. It is the water valve that you activate with the foot control/flush peddle. Look at the side of the toilet. Easy fix You can get one at most camping part stores and if desperate at Camping world. Bill

RE: Who can be the last poster?

My goodness. The sun is shinning this morning, suppose to be in the high 60's today, 70's tomorrow. I guess I can stand that. Some one has to . Where are you in Texas? The last thing to expect in Texas is the weather to stay the same. Bill

RE: Who can be the last poster?

The last thing I expected to see, considering it was 73 yesterday, Was the 34 degree weather and snow flurries. I hope that means winter is over now we had our snow. Bill

RE: First front tire blow out....

I agree. I had a front blow out on a class C and it wasn't nearly as bad as all the keyboard driver/rvers said it would be. The most important thing learned was many of the manufactuers that use the cutaway vans don't upgrade the tiers. They use the tires that come on the rolling chassis. Those may not have the load carrying capacity needed for the finished unit. Bill
