RE: tell me about your toilet!

We have the same toilet and if you don't clean it every time you dump it does get pretty icky. When DH is dumping and the water is off I hold the flap open and spray the underside and down into the tube with Scrubbing Bubbles (or Wal Mart's brand), let it sit and scrub with a toilet brush a few times. If you do that it stays clean. To me it's a cleaning issue, not that there is something wrong with the toilet.

RE: California state parks

X2 on what bikendan said. We park hosted at Emma Wood State Beach in Ventura, CA for 5 years and there is nothing, did I say nothing in the way of amenities, except for a beautiful ocean view. In Ventura county there are a couple of small county parks right on the ocean with hookups, Hobson & Faria. Rincon has no hookups of any kind either. Look at www.rvparkreviews.com for most CA state parks, a lot of them are listed.

RE: 2016 Mobile Suite 38 RSSA Queen vs King Bed

I don't know why the shelf or cabinet cannot be removed to install a king mattress. You may have to replace the plywood to add a wider piece for a king. Have you posted this on one of the suites owners sites? There's a Drv thread on the 5th wheel forums, on the Thor website and on Facebook. There's another website SOITC, suites owners international travel club, google for that.

RE: Campsite in west Los Angeles

As others have said there is nothing inexpensive in the LA area. There is a park in Long Beach, Golden something I think. We've stayed at Walnut RV in Northridge, it's fine. Balboa/Birmingham in Van Nuys is junky. There's a KOA in Pomona and a Ventura County park (Tapo Canyon) in Simi Valley. Look at www.rvparkreviews for areas around there.

RE: Wintering in the 5th Wheel in the Reno/Sparks area

We used to live in Sparks and I wouldn't winter in either of those parks. Bordertown sites are really close, Sparks Marina gets good reviews but it's pricey. We've stayed at Shamrock and it's really tight in there for bigger rigs too. We've stayed at Camp n Town in Carson City and liked it. When we return now we stay at Grand Sierra RV park, it has reasonable rates and you can use the hotels's amenities like gym, pool, etc. They have monthly rates all winter but not in the summer. We have friends staying monthly at the Gold Ranch right now and they like it. Surprisingly, Reno doesn't usually get a lot of snow but it is cold, you will have to wrap your water hose with heat tape. We kept a small electric heater in the basement for the coldest nights. Also, if you have an rv frig they will freeze so you need to put a light bulb on the outside vent to keep it from freezing. Ours did freeze and we had to replace the cooling unit.

RE: Looking for Opinions on Keystone Montana for Full Timing

You might look for an owner's group to ask more actual owners these questions. They are your best resource

RE: Family of four full-timing...RV recommendations?

Go to Facebook and search for Fulltime Families group. They are living it and would have much better suggestions than us, who are mostly retired folks.

RE: Does anyone know if a 2011 Palomino Sabre is a good 5er

Look for an owner's group online. They will be your best resource to ask.

RE: Replace Carpet in RV

We tore out the carpet in the LR and BR and replaced with 16" square vinyl tiles. We glued them down. My son laid the first few and showed us how to do it. It was hard on the knees but easy to lay down the tiles. We bought them at Home Depot. We first tried the interlocking vinyl planks (Allure) but we have a curved wall in the bedroom and couldn't get the cut right to go around the curve. The vinyl tiles were easy to cut with a jigsaw or heavy duty box cutter we also got at Home Depot. It's so easy to clean. If everyone saw all the dirt that goes through the carpet and accumulates under it they would all tear it up. We got an estimate from someone to lay continuous vinyl and it was over $3,000. The tiles were about $300 plus glue and a few other tools.

RE: Hwy 395 Hwy 120 and 6.... are they good for a 42' 5th wheel

X2 on what others said about it being a good route. We have gone that way more than once and it's fine. We pull a 37' 5'r and it's no problem at all. It's been a year since we've been on 395 and 1 1/2 years since we've been on 120 & 6, all in good shape for rv's.

RE: Weird , nice ,funky small camping places

There are a lot of them listed in Don Wright's Free Campground books (Amazon). We've stayed in many of them.

RE: Universal Studios Hollywood

X2 on what kalynzoo said. Balboa is barely ok. We've stayed at Walnut RV in Northridge and is a good option, right between the 101 and the 118. It is a small park but well kept. Another option is the Elks lodge in Simi Valley, if you are a member, they have hookups but not sure if they have sewer. Also, in Simi is Tapo Canyon park. Ventura County put in 16 full hookup sites, about 3 miles off the 118, out in a quiet canyon. You can make reservations on their website, Ventura County parks. There are not many good options in the LA area and with the traffic, ugh

RE: Replace carpet with laminate

We pulled our carpet up in the living room and replaced it with 16" square vinyl tiles. If everyone knew how much dirt goes through that carpet and accumulates under it, they would pull it out in a heartbeat. We love the vinyl tiles, bought at Home Depot and laid down with glue. We tried the vinyl planks first in the bedroom and they just weren't laying right so pulled them out and used the vinyl tiles. Easy to clean, looks great

RE: Things to see and do in Arkansas

X2 on the Crystal Bridges museum, even if you are not into art. The setting and grounds are spectacular with some American art thrown in. Best of all it's supported by the Wal Mart foundation, free entry and free parking. Stay at the Prairie Creek COE park, elec & water $23 (50 amp) with a dump onsite, right on Beaver Lake

RE: Getting New Tires -- Jack Up Points For Installers To Use?

We had new Goodyear's installed in February at a shop that does trucks. I was not able to post the pic, if you send me a pm I can send it to you. Ours weighs 19,400 and it was a little scary to see it on jacks.

RE: Passport America and its ilk

Like another poster we only have Passport America and Good Sam, and we hardly every use Good Sam. We are fulltime but still work 6 months and travel 6 months. When we are headed to a destination the PA parks work for us, we don't use the amenities so I don't care if it has wifi, pool, laundry, etc. Yes, some of the parks aren't in great shape, all I'm doing is plugging in and sleeping so I don't want to pay $35 or $40 to do that. We had Coast to Coast for a year on a promotion but don't travel enough to justify the cost of even a resale membership. We have a zone membership to Thousand Trails just to get a discount on a winter stay in AZ, never use it anywhere else
