RE: Back to the '70s!!!!

Those prices wouldn't deter us from going to Oregon State Parks as WA Parks are already that much or more.

RE: How Often Do you Get Skunked on FCFS Camp Spots?

We have never gotten skunked, but we have pulled into FS campgrounds and gotten the last or 2nd to the last site available. We usually arrive just before check-out on Sunday through Thursday and find available sites. I wouldn't try that on a week-end.

RE: Who's hitting the road this summer?

We have taken about 4 separate trips this summer into north east WA and also Idaho and Montana. We usually boondock or stay in forest service campgrounds so we are not really close by anyone else unless we want to chat with someone in a nearby campsite. We never use public restrooms as that is one of the main reasons we have a motorhome. We are heading into northern WA in a couple of days, so need to pack the motorhome tomorrow:)

RE: Air bags

Last year we had a rear air bag with a slow leak in it. I took it to a Cummins repair facility and they replaced the leaking bag. I asked about replacing the other rear bag since they were both the original. They stated that they usually don't replace them until they start to leak. I though that was odd, but it's been over a year now and the older bag still has no leaks.

RE: Tow Truck Policy

I would drop any roadside service that wanted Walmart to do my repairs. You got that right!!!

RE: Tow Truck Policy

Because of profit margin. Regardless of how many years you have had a policy, how much money you have spent on it over the years or that you rarely if ever have had to use it, no business will spend more than they have to. Many times it's less than they should. It's not right but every one of these road side assistance programs, insurance companies etc. are in business to make money and as much of it as they can, 100% of the time. Do you know of a roadside assistance program for RV that would include all household vehicles that would include a towing radius as opposed to the nearest? I'm going to search and change if I find one. We have Coach-Net Platinum. When our motorhome broke down they sent a tow truck to take us to the nearest Freightliner facility. The problem was that this facility couldn't even look at it for 2 weeks. I told the tow driver that I had to head south in about a week. He talked to Coach-Net and they instructed him to tow us an extra 140 Miles to a Freightliner repair shop that could look at it the next day...at no charge to me. I seriously doubt Good Sam would do that.

RE: 100 days till snowbirding........ maybe not

We will be heading south as usual in late October. WA virus isn't much different than AZ and we don't need to be in close contact with anybody when we are traveling unless we choose to. We can go a long time with the 100 gallon fresh water and equivalent holding tanks. We aren't close to anyone when fueling either. We would rather be distancing from others in warm weather than in cold weather.

RE: Walmart overnight and running the generator

My guess is that if it is too hot to sleep, you won't be the only one running a generator. I doubt there are quiet hours at Wal-Mart, but I wouldn't park very close to anyone for lots of reasons.

RE: Class A Roadside Assistance

Many years ago I had Good Sam but they left me stranded with a tire problem. I switched to Coach-Net and had a breakdown with our DP. They were going to tow it to the nearest diesel repair facility which would have been fine except this shop couldn't even look at it for 2 weeks. I advised Coach-Net that this wouldn't work for me as I was planning on heading south in 2 weeks. They said no problem and towed our motorhome and extra 130 miles to another repair facility that could repair it the next day. There was no charge to me for the extra towing mileage to accommodate my schedule. I doubt GS would do that as they are pretty adamant about towing to the "nearest" repair facility.

RE: reliabilty

I keep up on regular maintenance and service on both of our motorhomes and I can say that we have had 1000's of miles of trouble free vacations. The diesel maintenance costs more than the gasser but we've never had a ruined vacation due to a breakdown from either one. It's entirely possible to find a good DP in the early 2000's but you may have to up your budget closer to 60k for those years.

RE: free or low cost overnight near Spokane?

We stay at Cabelas in Spokane Valley when we are passing through. There is a Wal-Mart a couple of blocks from Cabelas also that has rv's parked for the night.

RE: Graphics replacement

Has anyone replaced their graphics on their trailer? I have an 2002 Sandpiper by Forest River and would like to replace the graphics. Any information would be appreciated. Thanks Since you are in AZ, I would suggest contacting Master Graphics in Lake Havasu. He removed and replaced all of the graphics on our 40 footer. His graphics are all done on a computer so he can match the factory graphics or design them any way you want.

RE: Need advice on towing cargo trailer

I have a 20' cargo trailer and it weighs 3000lbs empty. You should be fine with that as I doubt you will have more than 2000lbs of furniture. The issue that you may have is that the tongue weight on my trailer is over 600lbs empty. I would suggest putting the heavy furniture towards the rear to keep the tongue weight around 500lbs. Without a tongue scale, you won't actually know if the tongue weight is correct though.

RE: Who's hitting the road this summer?

We took a 3 day trip to Idaho a few weeks ago, and a 3 day trip in northern WA riding our side by side last week. We are heading to a different area in northern WA again in a few days. We have everything we need in the motorhome but we do visit with other campers in the rv parks. We have more trips planned in Idaho with other rv couples in July also. Most of us in eastern WA are tired of this lockdown.

RE: Grand Tetons first come first serve

We stayed at Gros Ventre in the middle of July last year with our 40 footer. We got a site that was more than large enough to fit the motorhome and towed vehicle. There were several open sites. We got there about noon to 1pm, which I would suggest doing as people pulled in off and on all afternoon.

RE: No Shore power in Roadtrek

If it has an inverter, check to see if the breaker on it has tripped.

RE: Tracker value

That price is way to high. I sold my 1994 Tracker a couple years ago for $3000 with the base plate. I towed it for one year before I sold it. Mine had a 3 speed automatic with no overdrive, so I could only highway cruise at about 55 to 60 mph because of high rpm's. I was slower than the trucks on the interstate. I bought a 4-door 2005 Grand Vitara for about $4500. It is an automatic with overdrive so highway cruising is not a problem. It has all the power options including cold ac. It is a much more comfortable driving vehicle than the Tracker ever was. Take the previous posters advice and look for a Grand Vitara as you will be much happier.

RE: Getting ready to head North.

We departed Arizona a few days ago heading back to WA. We stayed overnight in a Love's truck stop the 1st night. We parked way at the back out of the way of truckers. The 2nd night we stayed in a casino parking lot with about a half dozen other rv's. The casino was closed so we had the lot all to ourselves.
