RE: U.S. 212 from Crow Agency to Spearfish S.D.

My 2 cents is no, don't go that way. As others said it's a good 2 lane road. However, there is nothing, repeat nothing out there. We traveled it once and that was enough, no scenery, no cel service. It's got a lot of small ups & downs. We like to travel the 2 lanes across this country but that one is one we won't go on again. Your wife won't like it either.

RE: Is there value in memberships?

There's value in campground memberships IF you get a resale one and the campgrounds are in areas you want to visit. To pay thousands of dollars for the privilege of camping in their parks just doesn't add up to me. You can google resale campground memberships and get a whole lot of info. We use Passport America, Good Sam and got a free Thousand Trails zone membership for staying in one of their affiliated parks in AZ for 3 months. We are going back to Tucson this year and will save $1,000 on our 3 month stay. NEVER pay full retail

RE: Boondocking near Flagstaff

Between Ash Fork and Williams (west of Flagstaff), exit 151 Welch Road, large open area on BLM land. It's just north of I 40, 100 rv's could park there but when we go through there have been 1 or 2. no facilities

RE: So. Calif: I-15 at Cajon Pass and also at Las Vegas

Leaving early in the day in August sounds like a great idea. We were in Vegas in April for an rv rally and came into Vegas on the 215 to Oasis. The weekends seem much less busy to us.

RE: Steam cleaning outside of an RV

Forget the steam and use a waterless product to clean your rv. There are several available and use no water. I think Thetford makes one, there's Dri Wash N Guard. We use Wash Wax All, originally designed for airplanes. We have used it since we bought this 5'r in November 2011, no oxidation. The initial kit is pricey but gives you everything you need, long pole (no ladder needed) microfiber pads & towels and the wash wax all & black streak remover. I have no connection to the company just really like the product, will never use any other cleaner.

RE: Continue camping or pet friendly hotels

I was going to say the same thing OKSixpack said. Why does it have to be a new RV? There are lots of used rv's out there that are in really great shape. If you are only going to use it a few times a year I would not want to take the depreciation hit. But it's your $$$!!!

RE: Wash-Wax-All

No, I don't use the bug remover Cecilt. There's no need when I use the method described in my first post. Perhaps there would be if we were traveling in 100 degree weather and couldn't clean it off for a few days. So far, just diluted Wash Wax All or water and they come off

RE: Wash-Wax-All

We have used nothing else on our 2012 Drv Mobile Suite since we purchased it in November 2011. It has never had a water/soap bath, except for rain and when it sat for 2 months on the lot before we adopted it. Yes, you do NOT need any kind of wax product. It apparently has UV protectant because we have no oxidation, it looks like new. When it rains it beads up like wax. When we travel and the front cap is covered with bugs I spray a more diluted mix on it or just plain water (oops, I do use some water) let it sit awhile, then use the microfiber pad to wipe the bugs off. Will never use anything else. The initial kit is pricey, about $250, but well worth it. You get all you need to take good care of your rv. I just reorder the wash wax all concentrate and the black streak remover. Great product.

RE: Residential Fridge.. Brand? Model?

Our Dometic 1350 had been a problem from day one. After 3 cooling unit replacements and 1 complete frig changeout, when it died this time we had it replaced with the Samsung RF18. Works great. We did not have the inverter or extra batteries installed. We don't boondock often and have read other's comments that the frig can travel for about 6 hours without the temp rising much. We haven't traveled yet in warm weather, so we'll see. I am disappointed at the quality of the interior, it's kinda thin plastic drawers & shelves. I don't place heavy items in the center of the shelves. As you are looking for a replacement, the biggest problem is the depth. This RF18 was the only one I could find that would fit in the space. The installer still had to move my kitchen island over 1 inch.

RE: Campgrounds around Reno, NV and SLC UT?

Both Sparks Marina and Gold Dust West in Reno & Carson City are pricey parks. There is nothing cheap in the area, there's a state park just south of Reno on the 540, Washoe Lake State Park, it's about $18, no hookups but has bathrooms & showers. There are casinos that let you boondock, Rail City in Sparks and possibly Grand Sierra in Reno (they also have an rv park). Reno has a city ordinance that doesn't allow overnights in the parking lots and I've heard they are enforcing it now. The Nugget in Sparks also used to let rv's boondock in their lot, call them.

RE: How many of you full timers work only seasonally?

There are jobs with the Corp of Engineer parks around the country that pay $70 - $100 every day worked. They are from 4 to 8 months of the year. You have to bid on them. Every park is different as to how many days & hours worked.

RE: Las Vegas: Where to stay and where to avoid

We have heard about the Oasis for years and just attended a rally there, we were sorely disappointed. It's pricey and the sites were not really big enough for our 36 to 42 ft 5th wheels and truck. Although it sits right next to the freeway there was no freeway noise. HOWEVER, it sits right under the flight path for a VERY busy airport, coming in or taking off (depending on the wind), it was really annoying. We have stayed at the Las Vegas RV Resort and recommend it, while it is on Boulder Highway, it is nicely updated and has 24 hr security (as does Oasis). We have also stayed at Sam's Town, it has been taken over by KOA and we avoid them like the plague, too pricey for what you get. It will be interesting to see if the maintenance goes downhill like other KOA's.

RE: Where to stay overnight around OK. City OK.

The Grand Casino in Shawnee used to have 50 amp & water hookups for free. You just had to get a player's card. Call them

RE: Has anyone stayed at the Victorian RV Park in Sparks

We used to live in Sparks, Sparks Marina is nice & new & shiny, AND pricey. We have stayed at Grand Sierra RV Park, good access with back in & pull thru sites. We've also stayed at Shamrock, just north of the 80 on the 395, good park, some sites have views of the city. Boomtown is now affiliated with KOA, way too pricey and tight sites. Victorian is very tight. Gold Ranch is too far out of town for me but a good park.

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.
