RE: dded a new toy to the RV fun equation...

Very nice. We absolutely love our 800 rzr. I am jealous of the fact you can ride right out of the driveway. Haven't done much to ours in the way of upgrades but we added doors and love them.

RE: Camping with Dobermans

You will find some parks that won't allow you to stay. I have always camped with dogs. Queensland, labs, chows, and mutts. A few times we called ahead and they made exceptions to the weight requirements, never an exception for the breed. It is definitely an insurance issue. Heck, even home owners policies can dictate what breed of dog you can have.

RE: Cargo Trailer Shopping

Extra height and a RV or extended tongue are mandatory for me. Mine is 20' long 8.5" wide and 7' interior height. I was originally looking for 16', found a heck of a deal on a used 20' and wish I had 24'. I am also a big fan of the torsion axles over the leaf springs but it wouldn't be a deal breaker. Mine is a Carson trailer and it has served me well. If cost is not an issue I would buy a featherlite trailer 24' long, 8.5 wide, and 8'tall. I am not very familiar with WDH and got a hand me down to use with my trailer that had bars that were lower than the trailer tongue. My trailer tongue sets too low. I would have scraped trying to go over a speed bump.

RE: Do you unload when you camp? Really?

When I had my TC it never even occurred to me that taking it off wasn't normal. If for no reason other than making access in and out so much easier. One step compared to five steps.

RE: Essential Tools or I sure wish I had brought............

I have found that having the correct tool is not the problem but rather not having a new part to put back in after I take out the broken part. Test light, voltmeter, socket set, and screwdriver set will allow me to diagnose almost everything on the RV.

RE: How many seconds to extend your slide(s)?

I have never timed it and never will but I would guess less than 30 seconds. For us it is not the time it takes but trying to avoid oncoming traffic on two lane highways that makes it inconvenient to put the slides out to access the fridge and bathroom :). One of the main reasons we switched to a MH was to have full access to amenities while in motion. On the FW having to move the slide was not a problem because we had to stop regardless.

RE: Trailers, Trucks and Toy's Oh My...

Many years ago we did the same thing. Used our Credit Union for new truck, trailer, and utv loans. We negotiated with the dealers. Got a Bill of sale for each purchase took them to the Credit Union and was issued a check for each purchase. Next morning we picked up the truck drove over to the RV dealership had hitch installed and picked up FW and then to the Polaris dealership to pick up the Ranger. Looking back it was probable not the wisest financial chose but it sure was exciting and I would do it again in a heartbeat. Credit score and bank accounts will both build back up.

RE: Advice for a trip up the west coast

We have done I5 North to Williams, CA. West on highway 20 which drops you out on the 101 near Willits, CA and then 101 North up the coast. Done it with the 40' FW and the 36' MH and trailer.

RE: Did this ever happen to you?

I got an insurance renewal that had tripled. When I called they said "what did you expect, you have a failure to stop arrest on your record". Apparently a gentleman in San Francisco with the same first and last name and same middle initial didn't feel it was necessary to stop for the police until he lead them on a chase through the city. Somewhere in the process of reporting the incident they pulled up the name in the database and put my DL number and not his on the report. After multiple calls, e-mails, and letters with the San Francisco court they were finally able to see the errors of their ways.

RE: New Lance TT Has Water Leaking Problems!

Try giving Lance a call. They may take a look at it in their facility in Lancaster, CA. I haven't been there since the ownership change but in the past they were helpful and had a good supply of parts to fix just about anything on the spot.

RE: Walmart overnight parking

We have done it from time to time. It certainly is not uncommon. Part of the beauty of being self contained and not having to stop until you are ready and where you want. I say this half jokingly and half serious but with the price of fuel here in CA it almost becomes a wash weather you pay for a campsite or run the generator. if you use .7 gal of fuel per hour for 10 hours @ almost $4 a gallon you are $28 towards a spot with electricity :(:(:(

RE: Hero or Irresponsible?

Not off base at all. Her less than intelligent actions should not be rewarded but rather used as example of what not to do.

RE: $100 per night

The DW and I have had this same discussion regarding the cost of some camp grounds and always laugh at ourselves. We invest thousands into an RV and everything that goes with it and catch ourselves complaining about the occasional expensive campground. RV ownership and cost savings don't typically go together.

RE: 34/35' diesel pusher question. Newbie

36' DP 275 HP cummins and 6 speed Allison with a freightliner chassis. No stability issues towing. A little under powered but not an issue. LP generator with its own tank and will run everything in the MH. Diesel generator would be easier but LP was not a deal breaker and it is quieter than any of the gas or diesel generators in camp. Most DP that size will have a 5,000 lb. hitch so plan on reinforcing it. I choose to stay at the 36' length so I could stay under the 65' total length with trailer or toad. Lots of good rigs available in your price range.

RE: Bug Deflectors to push air over

My neighbor uses a twin size inflatable mattress. Shoves it between the camper and the truck roof and blows it up. Not the prettiest thing but he claims the $25 mattress gets him better fuel mileage. Problem with that is my truck is painted and I'd like to keep it painted…. I agree. I'm sure it will ruin the paint. Only time in 16 years I have seen the TC off the truck was when he moved the TC to his new truck.

RE: Your experience with a Dually vs SRW hauling 5ver

Keep in mind also that in 2005 and possible the two following years there was little difference in towing or carrying capacity between a F250 and an F350. My 2005 6.0 F250 crew cab short bed pulled my 40' FW TH flawlessly. With your FW any of the 6.0 Fords should be fine. I have always had SB but if I ever go back to a FW I will probable go long bed just to eliminate the possible need for a sliding hitch. On a side note I like people talking bad about the 6.0 so it keeps the price of the trucks somewhat reasonable. A few upgrades and they make great towing and hauling trucks.

RE: Leveling and turning on your refrigerator?

Over the years and different RV's I have never paid much attention to the fridge other than on or off. A day or sometimes a week before we leave I turn it on. As we stop for fuel, lunch, sight see, or for a quick overnight I don't concern myself with being level. At camp I get it level enough that the bathroom door won't swing open while it is being used. When we get home it may get turned off that day or a week later. As far as degree or percentage out of level regardless of whether I go south or north we spend much of the time going up and down 6% grades and the fridge is on the entire time. Now I might just be lucky but I agree that they are not as fragile as we are lead to believe.

RE: How much does 30+ feet actually effect ability to find space

We don't stay in pay to play campgrounds very often but length has only been an issue in one park in Ventura, CA. The issue we have found is width. By the time we put our slide out and the neighbor puts his slides out doesn't leave much breathing room. State and Federal campgrounds have not been an issue with PADS but rather as Executive said the issue has been with the ROADS or access to the pad. I am 36' with the MH but I typically have a 20' TOAD or 20' trailer that needs wide turns.
