RE: Reno RV Parks

We are former residents of Reno and staying at Shamrock RV right now. I highly recommend it, the park is excellently maintained. For example, the laundry room floor is waxed and very clean. The bathrooms are immaculate and just painted. It is located in an industrial area of Reno, so what? It's close to the 395 and easy access to everything. Shamrock has easy acess, long pull throughs on rows E, F & G. DO NOT stay at the Bonanza Terrace, we drove through and it's very junky, many permanent residents with plywood around the bottom of the rv. It is also very hilly, you notice that many people say you have to back up hill to get into the site on rv park reviews? We've stayed at the Grand Sierra and it's fine too, flat easy access sites. Sparks Marina RV sites are a bit more narrow & shorter but has nice facilities. The "marina" part of it is an old rock quarry that filled up with water during the flood of the Truckee River in 1997, I think. The Sparks city officials left the water and re named it a marina, now it has a park, outlet mall and an rv park. They stock it with fish. You say you are coming early September, try to avoid Labor Day weekend, that's the time of the rib cookoff in Sparks and all rv parks are packed and they raise the rates to $65 or $75 a day. Boomtown is a bit further out of town, I don't like KOA's so I would never stay there. You can pm me if you have any other questions I can answer.

RE: Full-time in the San Francisco Bay area while working?

I will respond to your question about an old rv and repairs. Yes, you can get a decent towable rv for under $10k. However, you will need to do your research and have it inspected by a professional rv technician to see what actual issues that it may have. Do not believe any owner or salesman that tells you it's in great shape. There are mobile rv repair people and sometimes a rv repair shop will have a technician come out. This could save you tons of $$$ down the road.

RE: Anyone have a road-loving housecat?

Other posters have given you excellent answers. We went fulltime when our cat was 14. The first year or so we let her travel in the 5'r, then discovered she was getting pushed around (broken teeth). After that, she traveled in the truck with us and did just fine. There are some cats that won't adapt and some dogs that yap all the time, depends on the animal.

RE: Mobile Suites towed with short bed Dodge?

There's a Drv owners forum, www.suitesowners.com, you can sign up with little info (last 4 digits of your VIN) and post this question to actual owners of Drv units. You are probably going to get about the same answers you've been getting.

RE: expired memberships ????

An expired card is definitely not worth it to me, sometimes the cg's check, sometimes not. But at 50% off for the PA card it's well worth the cost of the membership.

RE: Yellowing Sink......How to restore?

Awesome, from the dollar store. Just make sure you put it on evenly, it will cause streaks. You can also use it on the outside on the refrigerator vents, white door window frame to remove yellowing. When using it outside tape a rag or paper towels underneath so it will not run down the sidewalls, again causes streaks that do not come off. Really strong stuff, try it diluted first.

RE: The F350 works like a charm

We aren't Ford freaks either. We had a 2005 Dodge Ram dually but when we bought a new 5'r that weighed in at 19,400 we knew the Dodge couldn't do it (the new ones do). We tried to buy a Chevy but the CA dealer wouldn't let us pay the sales tax in SD. We went to Tucson and got a great deal on the Ford. It's a workhorse and doesn't act like 19,400 lbs is any big deal. Safe travels!

RE: Looking for a RV Park in Las Vegas.

We've stayed at Sam's Town on Boulder Highway also. We've also stayed at Las Vegas RV Resort, a short distance from Sam's Town. There's also a very cheap one downtown at the Main Street Casino, just a parking lot with hookups.

RE: which card to get AAA, Good Sam, KOA, RV America

We have almost the same as sdianel and would give the same advice. We don't have KOA, have only stayed at 2 of their parks in 8 years of fulltiming. They are always overpriced for what you get. We use Passport America first, then Good Sam. We also stay at casinos, Cabela's and some city/county parks listed in Don Wright's Free Campgrounds books, they are mostly low cost parks.

RE: 2006 DRV Mobile Suites 36TKS

I didn't see other posters suggest this, there's an owners forum for Drv units. www.suitesowners.com. You have to sign up with minimal info and can post any question under problems & repairs. There may be someone else that has had this issue and actual owners may be able to help.

RE: Any experience with Cruiseamerica in Salt Lake City

We rented a couple of times form Cruise America years ago. They were fine, in one the tv didn't work. Just make sure they show you how to operate all the systems, it can be overwhelming as a "newbie". It's a great way to travel. Just like a rental car you have phone numbers in case of trouble or breakdown.

RE: Branson MO camp grounds

We have stayed at Treasure Lake several times. We haven't been there in several years but it needed some updating then. Make sure the site they assign to you is pretty flat and accessible, we have been assigned sites that Hubby had to put the truck in 4 wheel drive just to back it uphill into the site. Another one we had to approach from the back, over the grass because the street was too narrow to back in. There are lots of flat sites, make sure you get one. We were "guests" of a Coast to Coast member and they may have given us the crappy sites. This may sound like we didn't like the resort, not true, it's well situated in town and we would return.

RE: Tybee Island Rivers End Park review

Perhaps you were embarrassed because, as you said, you were 30 min late in paying for another day?? When they called what was your attitude? I'm not saying this is what happened but I've seen this situation many times as a park host for Ca State Parks. During the off season and there aren't many campers some of the campers think it's ok to stay long past check out time. When I send the ranger down there campers are often rude when they come to the booth. I don't make the rules, the check out time was established probably 40 years ago. Don't know what really happened, the lady COULD have been rude or . . . .

RE: the bug bit

Post this question on the Suites owners website, www.suitesowners.com, under the discussion forum there's a thread for prospective owners to ask actual owners anything you like.

RE: Dishwashers

Well, I think it's worth it. We had one, a Vesta, you can purchase it from Camping World or an appliance outlet. They are designed to be an on the counter apartment dishwasher but do have the connections to install them. You can get the measurements from Camping World. The other dishwashers that are installed in rv's is a Fisher Paykel and they are pretty wide. We never installed the Vesta, just set it on top of our clothes washer, worked great, had it's own water heater.

RE: Americas Mailbox, Box Elder SD

We have been with My Home Address in Emery, SD for about 7 years and would recommend them to anyone. Always friendly & helpful. I have never read a complaint about ANY of the mail forwarding services in SD, there must be one out there but I haven't seen it.

RE: Exploring Our Options

We have fulltimed for 8 years today! We were 56 and 48 when we quit our jobs, sold the house and hit the road. The first year we bought COBRA for DH and I purchased a plan through Anthem Blue Cross. The premiums were just too high for us to continue. Since then we have purchased short term medical policies through www.ehealthinsurance.com. Rates are based on what state you are domiciled in, we are SD residents. The rates are reasonable but the deductibles are higher. If you pay the entire 6 months up front you get an additional discount. We are healthy so usually just pay cash for our yearly physicals, mammograms, lab work. I always ask for a cash discount. One of us is still 1 1/2 years away from getting Medicare but we will still purchase these policies for the other. You have to have health coverage and we figure if you had an illness or injury we could always make payments on the deductible part. The policies are for 6 months and then you buy another one, easy peasy.

RE: campgrounds near Niagara falls

X4 or 5 on Four Mile Creek State Park. We stayed there, large sites, good bathrooms & showers, right on the lake, 2 dump stations, and you get free parking at Niagra Falls (it's also a state park)

RE: Rv stop suggestion North of LA

Emma Wood State Beach is right on the beach and doesn't accept reservations until May 15. You are right on the water. We have hosted there for 5 winter seasons. They would definitely have space on a Sunday night. You can also reach it by taking the 126 west to the 101 north, the exit is just as you come north out of Ventura, says "state beaches". The entrance is at the bottom of the hill, no hookups or amenities at all, just a beautiful view. You can ride your bike along the bike path back south to downtown Ventura, about 1 3/4 mile.

RE: Lippert 6 Point Leveling System

We have the 6 point Level Up (Lippert) on the 2012 Mobile Suite. We had the 4 point hydraulic system on the 2007 Select Suites we previously owned. I can't see the advantage to spending all those dollars just to have the leveling system installed. IMHO, the only advantage is that you can use it to lift the trailer to change a flat tire, you can buy a big ole' jack for a lot less $$$.
