RE: Nothing Stays secure!

I love our Vulcan straps. They lasso around the wheels and nothing ever moves.

Sights along Lake Superior

We're camped in Sault St. Marie and planning to head around the northern coast of Superior to Thunder Bay. I've never been this way and I'm interested to know if there's anything we should make sure to check out along the way or any great places to camp.

RE: Norcold LI-op Error Code

I reset it about 90 minutes ago and the fridge seems happy for now. I’ll keep an eye on it. Half the people in camp were outside this morning dealing with various issues from last night’s storm. The gods seemed to have a score to settle with some of us.

RE: Norcold LI-op Error Code

After a little more rainy night Googling, I did find THIS THREAD that discusses resetting the switch with a magnet. I'll give it a try in the morning when it's light out. Fingers crossed.

Norcold LI-op Error Code

My Norcold fridge started beeping in the middle of the night. Sleepy me went out in the rain and switched over to the other LP tank, lit a stove burner to bleed the line, and then switched the fridge off and on to recognize the LP source. Then awake me remembered that we're not dry camping as usual and we have full hookups. Running out of propane like we did shouldn't matter. Then I realized that I didn't recognize the code, so I looked it up in the manual: Fault Code: "LI" "oP"Fault Code Meaning: The high temperature limit switch is open.Corrective Actions: This is not owner serviceable. See your dealer or authorized service center. I know "not owner serviceable" is pretty clear, but does anyone know of a field fix for this? We're in a very remote spot in northern Michigan and service isn't going to be easy. It's stormy tonight and supposed to rain all day. I'd rather not have to break camp and hit the road if we don't have to. EDIT: According to the manual, this is a "121X Series" fridge.

RE: Golf Carts in Galveston?

I guess I didn't phrase my question quite right. I know how to google. I think people use this forum to hear the personal experiences of fellow campers. My question is, does anyone know of another community where campers can ride their golf carts into town, like they do in Port Aransas? "Google it" is my least favorite response to questions like yours. I usually delete them if I catch them in time.

RE: Traveling through Canada with Dogs

All those that say.."but never been asked"....let me assure you, that lots of people are asked, going either direction, and no papers means your trip just came to a crashing halt. Gary Haupt I believe that everyone who said they were not asked then said you should bring papers in case the fickle finger of fate should pick you. There a trivia reference included for free.... "Say goodnight, Dick." "Goodnight, Dick"

RE: Recommendations for Dealers in So Cal

We were very unhappy with Giant RV. The sales process was ok, but their warranty service couldn't have been more horrible. It took 18 months to wrap up the stuff that was covered under our 12 month warranty. I was so glad to be free from them and able to deal with stuff myself. How sick is it that I was happier to PAY a mobile tech to work on my rig than to take it to Giant for free?

RE: Sacramento to San Diego

If you take I-5, don't go through LA. Either detour in Santa Clarita like you said or at the 210. The 99 to 58 to 15 will be more interesting like you said. Plus this will avoid the Grapevine, which is stressful for a lot of drivers. If you do go over the Grapevine to Santa Clarita, make sure to avoid the hottest parts of the day. The heat takes its toll on the climb up to Tejon and on the downhill side to Castaic.

Where do you search for parks?

What are some of the best websites for searching for places to stay? We're kind of flaky in that sometimes we know exactly which city we want to stop in and make reservations in advance, and other times call and book our camp when we're an hour or two out.

RE: Trip Planner

I've been playing with RV Trip Wizard, but I sure don't love it.

RE: Looking for 1st Toy Hauler

a garage that large will put you into the 40' range. Which just so happens to be awesome!!! :B We love our pig of a toy hauler. Sure it's big, but it's comfy.

RE: Recommendations for Dealers in So Cal

Hey guys Sad to say but we’re seriously thinking of trading our Fifth wheel Toy hauler in. We want another Fifth wheel or Travel trailer with a separated garage. Anybody in So Cal who can recommend a dealer? TIA!!! Hey there. Long time no see. It's good to see you back. How is life treating you? I hope you're well.

RE: Looking for 1st Toy Hauler

Hi there. Welcome to the forums. “For Sale” posts and advertising are a no-no. Yes, you’ll definitely want a dedicated garage for your x3 and gear. Take a look at the sticky thread for the complete list of toy haulers. It’s pure gold.

RE: Canyon de Chelly

I’m appalled by the ignorance of the OP in so many ways, but I believe that the question has been asked and answered. Thanks to those of you who provided thoughtful responses. I’m closing this thread.

RE: Canyon de Chelly

Canyon de Chelly is a National Monument, but it's located entirely on Navajo tribal land. Although it's federally protected as a National Monument, it's a tribal territory. You missed an incredible experience by passing up the tribal jeep tour. In my opinion, this should be a required experience for all Americans. Having a local Navajo guide professionally lead you through the canyon is an invaluable history lesson. My parents took our family there when I was young and I took my family there once my kids were old enough to appreciate and understand it. When I was in fourth grade, my teacher (an otherwise great teacher) was lazily reading out of our history text about the great American hero, Kit Carson. I literally jumped out of my seat and told her that none of this was true and asked her if she knew what he did to the Navajo people. She told me to catch my breath and come up front and tell the class what I knew. I repeated what I had learned about The Long Walk. The teacher thanked me for my alternative explanation and used this as a chance to talk to our class about perspective and bias in historical accounts (including my own obvious perspective & bias). It's a beautiful area with rich history. I wouldn't trust the NPS to post signs to accurately depict the stories. The local guides do this better than any signs could.
