RE: Las Vegas

We usually stay at the Las Vegas RV Resort off Boulder Highway, 1 block away from Sam's Town. It's the only park that has 24 hr security at the gate, that I know of.

RE: how to clean cloth blinds

I would take them down, this may be a little challenging the way some manufacturers installed them. If you can take them down, lay them on a patio table outside and spray with Folex, a carpet & upholstery cleaner. I would also try diluted Oxyclean.

RE: T Mobile

We switched to T Mobile about 4 years ago when we bought our android smart phones. We've used the hotspot everywhere from CA to IN and it worked well. There are a few places across the country that we couldn't get service but not many. The phones worked but not the hotspot

RE: Carson city RV park???

We've stayed in Carson City at Camp n Town, easy access and quiet, reasonable price. Gold Dust West is pricey and sites are really close together. Comstock sits right next to the 6 lane highway and is very noisy. There's another one in Minden, just outside Carson City, again right next to the highway, very flat and windy.

RE: Where to camp without reservation out west?

In Truckee, CA, there are a couple of private campgrounds or forest service campgrounds (Martis Lake is one). Beautiful area, close to Lake Tahoe, lots of hiking, biking and scenery.

RE: Lippert hydraulic slideouts creeping during travel

X2 on what buc1980 said. Check your fluid tank first. We had some slight seeping from our connections and the front started dropping. Ours was 2 quarts low. Check it when hooked up, all slides and legs in/up. It should be about 3/4" from the top.

RE: West Coast Campsite Availability

Don't let others discourage you. When we hosted at Emma Wood in Ventura we usually had open sites during the week. Weekends may be booked up.

RE: How to know if a unit has heat pump

My 2 cent post is don't get hung up on the heat pump. Ours came with the combo ac/heat pump and I would never have another one. It takes too dang long to heat up the area. We use the furnace first to warm it up then the fireplace. You can then use the heat pump to keep it warm, IMHO they are useless.

RE: CA Hwy 1 Santa Rosa or Jenner to Point Arena with 33' MH?

If Jenner and Point Arena are north of San Francisco this is NOT recommended for an rv that size. VERY much a winding road with switchbacks that put your backend into the other lane. Don't know about 128. You need a Mountain Directory that gives you information about steep grades and winding roads in every state, available on Amazon or at truck stops.

RE: West Coast Campsite Availability

X2 on what djgarcia said. We volunteered for 5 seasons at Emma Wood State Beach in Ventura, CA. Even though it's beautiful weather all year long, summer is definitely high season and you REALLY need reservations anywhere along the coast. You can check reserveamerica.com for CA state park reservations. The state parks don't have hookups as a rule. Another comment, Southern CA is not rv friendly, few rv parks and PCH doesn't go all the way up the coast. It starts in southern Orange County, goes through Los Angeles County, then ends again in Ventura County. 101 is the road you will be traveling on north of Ventura County. Be prepared for frustrating traffic and make reservations! Also, don't go on Hwy 1 (PCH) north of San Francisco, don't know how big your rig is but it's a really winding road with switchbacks that is NOT a place for rv's. Find a park and drive it in your toad/tow vehicle.

RE: North Hollywood, CA, parking

Tapo Canyon park in Simi Valley is a Ventura County park, you can only stay there for 14 days. There's also an Elks Lodge in Simi Valley with hookups. I agree on the park Balboa/Birmingham in Van Nuys, nothing special at all. There's a park in Northridge, Walnut RV park. Also, there is a park in Long Beach, Golden something, one in Playa Del Rey, Dockweiler Beach RV (not the state park). Check www.rvparkreviews.com. You are going to an area that's not rv friendly and is pricey for anything. Reasonable cost and CA are not possible.

Volunteers needed at COE parks in NW Arkansas

2 Corps of Engineers parks around Beaver Lake in NW Arkansas need volunteers to staff their day use booths collecting fees for day use, shelter rentals and boat launches. You work 3 days a week, Fri, Sat & Sunday. There is a background check required that you pay for ($20) but you get 5 months of full hookup camping. Please contact Ranger Brian Walch at brian.walch@usace.army.mil or call the ranger office at 479-636-1210 and leave a message.

RE: Sheets for RV matress

I have posted this many times. Buy a pair of men's suspenders at Wal Mart. Lay them out in an X pattern under the mattress. Attach them in 4 places to the side of the sheets, they are adjustable for any size mattress and hold any sheet tight.

RE: Phoenix Area in the Fifth Wheel - for a year.. suggestions?

I know people are trying to be helpful but Apache Junction, Maricopa or Casa Grande are WAY too far for you to work downtown. DH's family lives there and we visit often. Phoenix traffic starts about 2:30 and you crawl along slowly. You need to find someplace close in. We usually stay at Leaf Verde in Buckeye but that is kinda far out too. Several years ago we stayed at Royal Palm Mobile Home & RV park. They have a separate rv section. It's an over 55 park and gated. It's right off I 17 on Dunlap, so decently close to downtown. Trust me, traffic is terrible.

RE: Working on the road

Start reading the daily blog of Nick Russell, who has the Gypsy Journal website and blog. www.gypsyjournalrv.com. He used to own a newspaper in Show Lo, AZ, then decided to go fulltime. They have made their living by publishing a bimonthly newsletter about their travels and a few years ago started publishing novels. He doesn't make enough to live on from the blog. It would be great if we could all be independent and travel, unfortunately few people have found a way to do it.

RE: RV friendly gas stations?

Get a Next Exit guide, it tells you what is off every exit on major highways for the entire US. Available on Amazon, we have used it for years.

RE: Thinking about going full time: weird questions

As someone else said rv's mostly don't have good insulation. You need to do a lot of research on which ones are better insulated. An older quality used unit like a Travel Supreme, Drv Mobile Suite, Excel may be good choices for you. Since you have been homeless a lot I would assume funding may be an issue. Park models or a smaller mobile home may be an option but there would be the costs of moving them. You might give us a little more info as to what you want to spend on a living unit. We may be able to offer more suggestions.

RE: Las Vegas RV Park

We have stayed at Sam's Town before they went to KOA, nothing special and now way overpriced. We have stayed at Oasis, nice but under the flight path of the airport and in a busy area of town. We usually stay at Las Vegas RV Resort, all remodeled, reasonable, close to Sam's Town.

RE: Good sam coast to coast resort

X2 on what others said. Buy a resale membership. You are hoping to recoup your investment in 10 years?? Never happen. These types of memberships are only worth it if you can get in cheaply upfront. Look at one of the membership campgrounds, they have lists of resale memberships on their websites or call them. As an example Treasure Lake in Branson, MO posts a list of resale memberships on their website, what the costs, including transfer fees, are. Your Coast to Coast membership fees are on top of that.
