RE: 100 days till snowbirding........ maybe not

We will be heading south as usual in late October. WA virus isn't much different than AZ and we don't need to be in close contact with anybody when we are traveling unless we choose to. We can go a long time with the 100 gallon fresh water and equivalent holding tanks. We aren't close to anyone when fueling either. We would rather be distancing from others in warm weather than in cold weather.

RE: Walmart overnight and running the generator

My guess is that if it is too hot to sleep, you won't be the only one running a generator. I doubt there are quiet hours at Wal-Mart, but I wouldn't park very close to anyone for lots of reasons.

RE: Class A Roadside Assistance

Many years ago I had Good Sam but they left me stranded with a tire problem. I switched to Coach-Net and had a breakdown with our DP. They were going to tow it to the nearest diesel repair facility which would have been fine except this shop couldn't even look at it for 2 weeks. I advised Coach-Net that this wouldn't work for me as I was planning on heading south in 2 weeks. They said no problem and towed our motorhome and extra 130 miles to another repair facility that could repair it the next day. There was no charge to me for the extra towing mileage to accommodate my schedule. I doubt GS would do that as they are pretty adamant about towing to the "nearest" repair facility.

RE: reliabilty

I keep up on regular maintenance and service on both of our motorhomes and I can say that we have had 1000's of miles of trouble free vacations. The diesel maintenance costs more than the gasser but we've never had a ruined vacation due to a breakdown from either one. It's entirely possible to find a good DP in the early 2000's but you may have to up your budget closer to 60k for those years.

RE: free or low cost overnight near Spokane?

We stay at Cabelas in Spokane Valley when we are passing through. There is a Wal-Mart a couple of blocks from Cabelas also that has rv's parked for the night.

RE: Graphics replacement

Has anyone replaced their graphics on their trailer? I have an 2002 Sandpiper by Forest River and would like to replace the graphics. Any information would be appreciated. Thanks Since you are in AZ, I would suggest contacting Master Graphics in Lake Havasu. He removed and replaced all of the graphics on our 40 footer. His graphics are all done on a computer so he can match the factory graphics or design them any way you want.

RE: Need advice on towing cargo trailer

I have a 20' cargo trailer and it weighs 3000lbs empty. You should be fine with that as I doubt you will have more than 2000lbs of furniture. The issue that you may have is that the tongue weight on my trailer is over 600lbs empty. I would suggest putting the heavy furniture towards the rear to keep the tongue weight around 500lbs. Without a tongue scale, you won't actually know if the tongue weight is correct though.

RE: Who's hitting the road this summer?

We took a 3 day trip to Idaho a few weeks ago, and a 3 day trip in northern WA riding our side by side last week. We are heading to a different area in northern WA again in a few days. We have everything we need in the motorhome but we do visit with other campers in the rv parks. We have more trips planned in Idaho with other rv couples in July also. Most of us in eastern WA are tired of this lockdown.

RE: Grand Tetons first come first serve

We stayed at Gros Ventre in the middle of July last year with our 40 footer. We got a site that was more than large enough to fit the motorhome and towed vehicle. There were several open sites. We got there about noon to 1pm, which I would suggest doing as people pulled in off and on all afternoon.

RE: No Shore power in Roadtrek

If it has an inverter, check to see if the breaker on it has tripped.

RE: Tracker value

That price is way to high. I sold my 1994 Tracker a couple years ago for $3000 with the base plate. I towed it for one year before I sold it. Mine had a 3 speed automatic with no overdrive, so I could only highway cruise at about 55 to 60 mph because of high rpm's. I was slower than the trucks on the interstate. I bought a 4-door 2005 Grand Vitara for about $4500. It is an automatic with overdrive so highway cruising is not a problem. It has all the power options including cold ac. It is a much more comfortable driving vehicle than the Tracker ever was. Take the previous posters advice and look for a Grand Vitara as you will be much happier.

RE: Getting ready to head North.

We departed Arizona a few days ago heading back to WA. We stayed overnight in a Love's truck stop the 1st night. We parked way at the back out of the way of truckers. The 2nd night we stayed in a casino parking lot with about a half dozen other rv's. The casino was closed so we had the lot all to ourselves.

RE: This could be a problem

I kind of expected an increase in rv sales because people aren't going to want to fly or stay in motels.

RE: Anyone traveling yet

We left Arizona a few days ago going north through Nevada, Idaho, Oregon, and WA. All rest areas were open that we saw on our route. We stayed at truck stops, and a casino parking lot(it was closed) with several other rv's spending the night. We also spent the night in a mall parking lot in WA for a couple of days visiting family. Police car waved as he drove through the parking lot. We saw quite a few cars on the road while traveling, but there were lots of RV's traveling also.

RE: Trapped?

We usually stay in AZ until the temps hit 100 degrees. This year is no different. It's now 100+ so we will be heading to WA in a few days. Looking forward to the low price of diesel.

RE: Under cabinet coffee maker?

Our Isata came with a B&D under cabinet model. We make it a little on the strong side and then add creamer to suit our taste. I will say that our Allegro came with the same coffee maker but it started leaking so we just replaced it with a counter top model. It has rubber feet and does not move going down the road.

RE: Drive train failures, tire failures. Warranty vs None

When we bought the Allegro Bus I purchased an extended warranty. Mainly because I don't know that much about diesels and there were limited service records available. I'm glad that I did because in the first 6 months both fuel pumps started leaking and were replaced under warranty. The bill was over $3000 and they paid all except my $500 deductible. Two years later the side by side fridge quit working. The warranty paid for a new cooling unit which was around $1800.00 installed. Again, I only paid the $500 deductible. Both times the warranty company didn't try to deny any part of the repairs or installation. With that said, the warranty cost me $5000 up front and the covered repairs were about $5000, so I broke even. Now that I know more about diesels and servicing maintaining them properly, I wouldn't purchase the extended warranty. I have a separate account for repairs which so far, I haven't needed to use.

RE: Is anyone going anywhere?

We will be leaving AZ in about 10 days and heading to our home in WA. We have plenty of food in our motorhome so will not need to shop anywhere on our way home. We have a full 150 gallon fuel tank so will only need to fill up once or twice at a truck stop on the way home and I will be wearing disposable gloves for that. We plan on staying in roadside pullouts, BLM land, etc, so won't be needing rv parks or campgrounds. I'd say we will be plenty isolated from contact with other people. Have a nice and safe trip Thank-you...We are looking forward to light traffic and low diesel prices.
