RE: macerator people how high of lift can I go?

We have a Flojet macerator that we used in a state park when volunteering. We had to pump 110 away and about a 5 foot rise to the bathroom cleanout. It worked but the pump would get hot after 15 minutes. We were there for 4 months and had a sludge buildup when we left, due to the lack of "swoosh" effect that the 3 inch sewer pipe provides. We have used it since but I would not do it again for a long period of time.

RE: Summer in Phoenix in a fifth-wheel? Has anyone done it?

We were in Phoenix in June 2012, it was 112. I would not want to do it again. Of course, there are people that live in their rv's there. My comment is that I would not want to be there in anything other than a quality unit, I mean insulation. Rv's are not air tight and those with little insulation do not hold the heat or cool.

RE: Las Vegas, NV to Twin Falls ID on Rt 93

93 is a good highway, there's a fuel station at the north end of 318. There's fuel in Ely, Wells, and Jackpot, NV, also Twin Falls is a pretty big town. Nevada is pretty flat, no problem there and not any steep grades in south ID.

RE: Overseas visitors: California campground availability in May

Look at California State Parks, yes, a lot of them are reserved months in advance. We volunteered at Emma Wood State Park in Ventura, CA for several winter seasons. The reservations don't start there until May 15. Until then it is first come first serve. There are no hookups but beautiful right on the ocean sites. During the week there are always open rv sites.

RE: Reno Area RV Parks?

We used to live in Sparks, so we are familiar with most parks. For easy access the Grand Sierra rv park is best, flat and wide streets, right off I 80. We stayed at Shamrock last year and it's a little tight but ok for a big rig. Bordertown is a little too far north and Gold Ranch is a little too far west, in my opinion. Other posters suggestions for activities are good. My son lives in Truckee, just over the state line in CA, there's a cute downtown area there. From Truckee take Hwy 267 south down to Lake Tahoe. Take the 341 back to south Reno (over MT Rose Hwy). OR go further south and take Hwy 50 back to Carson City and see that quaint town then back north to Reno. That's a full day trip. OR you can go further south in Lake Tahoe to Hwy 206, that comes into Minden. All good options in a vehicle, not an rv.

RE: Volunteering in California State Parks

We volunteered for the CA state parks for 6 seasons in Ventura County. I would recommend it, you put in 20-24 hours a week, mostly collecting camping or day use fees and selling firewood. No bathroom cleaning. Every park is a little different. We were close to the ocean and the salt air damages your rig. We would do it again away from the ocean. Yes, there are homeless, never had a problem. There is a ranger on call 24 hours a day, they handle all the problems. A volunteer is NEVER expected to handle a law enforcement issue.

RE: Siloam Springs, Ark. RV big rig Park?

My sister lives in Rogers and we visit the area often. There's not much in the way of rv parks. In my Trailer Life Directory there's a Greentree rv park 479-524-8898, it's right on 412, we've passed it many times. We've stayed at Natural Falls state park and it's got good access and elect & water at the site. There's another park just outside of Springdale, in Cave Springs that gets good reviews, The Creeks Golf & RV resort, it's pricey. Also, there is a COE park east of Springdale, Hickory Creek. Natural Falls is probably closest to Siloam Springs.

RE: heat pump/ac

My 2 cents is from experience. Ours came with the ac/heat pump combo in the LR. It works down to 30 degrees but takes a long time to heat up the room. We have an electric fireplace and a furnace. The furnace warms up the room much faster and the fireplace keeps it warm. If I had to replace the ac/heat pump I would not get the heat pump. I think the heat pump is noisier than the furnace, if we run it at night it sounds like humming and bothers my sleep. I like the other suggestion, get a space heater, works good and much cheaper (or the cheap heat)

RE: Advice on Niagra Falls

x4 on the recommendation for Four Mile Creek State Park, big sites, nice bathrooms & showers, 2 playgrounds. And you get free parking at Niagra Falls because it is also a state park!

RE: What is the secret cleaner

Awesome is a really good cleaner but don't let it run down the side of your rig, tape paper towels or work towels underneath whatever you are cleaning. It etches your finish. I use it diluted.

RE: looking for summer workamping in MONTANA

X2 on the recommendation for Montana State Parks. We volunteered at the Missouri Headwaters State Park in Three Forks for 3 summers. It's right off I 90 between Bozeman and Butte. Look for a park closer to Missoula, most have volunteer park hosts.

RE: DRV Memphis

If you post this question on the Suites owners website under Prospective owners (you can sign up with little info) www.suitesowners.com. I'm sure one of the Drv owners can direct you to the correct place. This is an independent group of Suites owners who have regional and national rallies for Drv owners. I just googled 2015 Drv Mobile Suite Memphis spec's, under www.rvguide.com there's all kinds of info, except weight!

RE: Yahoo article on full time RV ing

A pretty good article that doesn't make it sound like fulltimers are just homeless roaming the country.

RE: CA camping trip being planned South Coastal areas

Emma Wood State Beach in North Ventura is right on the water, no facilities. They take reservations from May 15 through Labor Day. All CA state park reservations are through Reserve America, there are probably openings during the week and some weekends. The other state parks by Santa Barbara are nice.

RE: Difficult to find RV Bed Sheets

We don't spend the extra $$ that is charged for "rv sheets". We have used a $6 pair of suspenders from Wal Mart for years to keep the sheets tight.

RE: carpet??

I would think most manufacturers would delete carpet for a price!

RE: Phoenix 17 truck route?

Well, they may have designated it as a truck route but the 17 has just as much car traffic as the 10. Phoenix is as bad as Los Angeles, it starts getting really busy around 3. If you can, plan to go through around 10:30. We try to do that with ANY major city, 10:30 is after the morning rush and before the lunch hour rush.
