RE: St George, UT to Cannonville, UT (Bryce Canyon Trip)

I would, and have, taken the road (UT-9) from Zion and straight through the tunnel to Carmel, then north on 89 to 12. That saves a lot of time and only costs $15 for the rangers at Zion to stop the traffic through the tunnels so only traffic going your direction is in the tunnel and you have the whole road to ride the centerline. You can read the requirements for using the tunnel at https://www.nps.gov/zion/planyourvisit/the-zion-mount-carmel-tunnel.htm.

RE: Daytona 500 camp ground

There are a couple of RV parks near the track. Daytona Racetrack RV is just NE of the tracks and the track entry is almost a mile away. Daytona Speedway RV is SW of the track and about a 1.5 miles from the entrance. Those distances are on foot, driving can be much farther depending on route.

You had better jump on that 129. Their web site says it's now 159 for motorhomes! :E

You may want to read through our blog entry for when we visited in 2015. Subsequent entries cover Banff and Jasper.

RE: Dinghy Towing guide

It's my understanding that 2014 was the last year you could flat tow a CRV, like Ken said because of the change to a CVT transmission in 2015. Those transmissions are becoming increasingly used in all makes and models and is making it difficult to find anything to tow other than a Jeep Wrangler, Cherokee or Grand Cherokee.

RE: Absolute positively the worst road ever

Mountain Directory West states: "The top of this hill is just east of Trijillo and there is a warning sign – “9% next 3 miles” near milepost 32. It is an eastbound descent with long steep drop-offs (there are guardrails most of the way down) and 25 mph curves. Some of the grade is less than 9%. Highway 104 is narrow and a bit rough, not with potholes but with humps, bumps, and lumps." If I had read that, I wouldn't have taken that route. I'm sure the same can be said of the OP. The point is that there are resources available to keep you out of that, and other, bad decisions.

RE: Military Chapter/Group within Good Sam?

Special Military Active Recreational Travelers may be what you are talking about but I don't believe they are associated with Good Sams.

RE: Best Route through the Smokies

If it were me, I would take I-40. You definitely DO NOT want to take US 19 between Cherokee and Maggie Valley. US 74 from 441 just south of Cherokee to US 19 north of Waynesville is a good ride but you will wind up on I-40 regardless.

RE: September 2020 Suggestions/Advice

We have been all over the southwest a few times and, in our opinion, the Chaco Culture National Historic Monument has by far the best collection of "ancient" structures but it is also the hardest to reach. Our 2013 blog post has many pictures you might like to see. We also visited Hovenweep and Mesa Verde in 2011 with pictures of those two available at our Cortez, CO blog post. Just about anywhere you go in the desert SW will have an ancient structure or two. The biggest problem is time as you need to travel from place to place and many of them take awhile to get to.

RE: The Ark Encounter in Kentucky

Our blog post covering our trip last year has some pictures of our site at Whispering Hills. Early reservations are recommended! We also stayed at Kentucky Horse Park in 2012 and pictures of our site are available on that blog post.

RE: Air brakes on Towed

Back in 2011 we paid 1,100 for the AF1, installation was another four hours labor. It has worked great for over eight years. It does require hooking up the air line from the MH using the quick disconnects on the coach and toad.

RE: Florida to Yosemite

You might check our 2013 blog for our trip to those areas. The May 15th Entry covers Joshua Tree, the May 23 Entry covers our stop in Three Rivers, CA to see Sequoia and Kings Canyon, and our May 31 Entry covers our stay in Groveland, CA to visit Yosemite. Of course the whole trip covered almost seven months from Florida to the northwest coast and back and all stops are listed in that blog WITH NO ADS!

RE: Washington State

If you plan on being there the middle of August, the International Kite Festival in Long Beach, WA is a must see in our opinion. You can check out our blog entry from when we were there in 2016 if you like. It may be too late to get reservations but it doesn't hurt to try. We stayed at Andersens Oceanside RV Park & Campground when we visited and found it very nice.

RE: RV Park near Noesho River OK

If you have never traveled in that part of the country be aware that rivers aren't going to be like the rivers you have in New England. They are almost all muddy, slow moving sloughs. I wouldn't go out of my way to stay near an Oklahoma River. True story: There was a prison escape at the State prison near Stringtown, Oklahoma. The warden was interviewed and asked what was being done. He said they were watching the highway and the railroad but otherwise just waiting. He said that after a day or two in the surrounding swamps and creeks escapees just get driven crazy by the leeches, snakes and mosquitoes and return on their own. That is Oklahoma water recreation at it's finest. You must not have spent much time in the Sooner state. Stringtown is in the southern section of the state which is much different than NE OK which is full of nice, clear lakes and streams and is where the original poster is referencing

RE: 15 Amp Service

You don't say what Tiffin model you have in your signature but there should be a way to control and set how much current your converter or inverter/charger uses to charge your batteries. Set it so it consumes no more than 5 amps or you will be popping breakers as soon as you plug in if your house batteries are somewhat discharged after the trip. Make sure you don't use any major current draws, not even one, until the batteries reach float charge condition.

RE: norcold ice maker

If you open the outside access panel to the reefer, you should be able to see the water line going to a valve and then going to a solenoid and then from the solenoid to the reefer. These solenoids frequently fail and are inexpensive and easy to replace. First thing would be to see if there is any water going to the solenoid - that would eliminate filter and other supply problems.

RE: Route 82 Alamagordo to Artesia

That's about a 4,000 ft climb between Alamogordo and Cloudcroft. You don't say what you are driving. If a car, no sweat, if a small pickup pulling a large trailer, not so good. Lots of slow curves. Got to have power to make the climb West to East, great brakes to make the descent east to West.

RE: Full-time in the Arizona heat

Depends on where you are staying. We spent last summer (April thru September) in Prescott Valley and easily weathered it. It did get hot (95-100°) during July and August but our two A/Cs handled it well.

RE: Alaska Marine Highway

You may want to check our 2009 blog when we made that same trip, spending over three weeks going from Prince Rupert to Haines. We left Prince Rupert on May 28 and arrived in Haines on June 19. Many things have changed I'm sure in the last 10 years but you can get a good idea of the trip. We left home in Florida on March 23 and returned home on October 1. All 87 stops of the trip are on that blog.
