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.

RE: Fulltimer Insurance

X3 on what USMC46 said, we had National Interstate for 6 years, then a significant rate increase. We signed up with Blue Sky 2 years ago, no claims with either.

RE: Rincon East or West

We visited some friends at Rincon West 2 years ago, never seen the East park. I would not stay there due to the proximity to the base. The plane noise was VERY loud. We stayed at Voyager on Kolb Road, really liked it and the friendliness of everyone. We did get some plane noise there but NOTHING like Rincon West.

RE: Los Angeles base camp

The Ventura County park, Tapo Canyon in Simi Valley is a good choice, about 3 miles off the 118 freeway and full hookups. A little closer to Pasadena is Walnut RV park in Northridge, it's right off the 118 freeway. The Valencia Travel Village is right off I 5, also a good location but a little further out for other LA attractions. My 2 cent suggestion would be to get off I 10 when coming in to the LA area, take the 210, it goes across the "top" of LA and avoids the downtown area. Good luck and have patience, the traffic sucks.

RE: Utah camping help

We stayed at Jordanelle State Park a few years ago. I would recommend it, big sites, some with e & w, some with full hookups. They also have bathrooms, a laundry facility and a dump onsite. Nice views from the sites and easy access to SLC. Maybe they have a group site you could reserve. You would have to google the elevation, not sure about that.

RE: Washing rig on the road?

We also use a waterless wash product, we used to use Dri Wash & Guard but now we use Wash Wax All by Aero Cosmetics. We really like it and after 3 years the 5'r still looks like new

RE: Mobile Suite purchase price help needed

Why don't you ask other Mobile Suite owners? If you haven't found it already, there is an owner's forum, www.suitesowners.com. You can register with little info and post in the prospective owner's thread. You can also ask other owners what they like or dislike about this model. It's not associated with Drv, just an owner's travel club. You should have any used unit inspected by an rv technician, well worth the $$

RE: Amazon Fernly closing?

I guess the question was answered by Petruschke regarding the use of workampers. Just as an FYI, I will answer the question of campgrounds. There are campgrounds close, a small one Shamrock RV Park, on Parr Blvd (2 exits away). The better fit might be the rv park at the Grand Sierra Casino, ( approx. 6 exits away) it's pretty large and they do have monthly rates during the winter, not summer. It will be interesting to see what evolves.

RE: Mobile suites weight and mobility question

We have a 2012 36' Mobile Suite, don't know what it weighed coming from the factory. We bought it off the lot, transferred our stuff from the 2007 Drv Select Suite and took off. When we weighed it at the scale it was 19,400 (we had previously weighed the truck). All good advice from other posters, these rigs have heavy frames, lots of insulation. It's a really good unit.
