  1. We went to Alaska last summer, we have a Travl'r and Dish. We got one satellite, 119, everyplace we were unless trees or mountains were in the way. People in our group with with Directv lost all signal in lower Canada. I switched our locals to Anchorage
  2. Heading To Alaska This Summer

    We went to Alaska with Fantasy last summer, they will give you a Mile post book and full list of campgrounds when you meetup to start the trip. The info includes campground name, address, phone and latitude and longitude. It will also include fuel stops along the way and other things like scenic pull outs, etc. The wagon master and tail gunner will both call and talk over what to expect and try to answer questions. For us this was a trip of a lifetime, we made lifelong friends.
  3. Tyron Tire Run Flat Bands

    I have them on our 2012 Allegro Bus, the previous owner had them installed. I don't have any tools to remove them, I recently had new tires installed and the dealer didn't have any special tools but was able to remove and reinstall the Tyrons without any problem. Not sure about roadside service but I don't see an issue.
  4. Anyone know of an Aqua Hot tech in the Las Vegas or Pahrump area? Thanks Brian
  5. Weather Station

    I have had a Vantage Vue for 6 or 7 years, I like it and think it accurate. I use a flag pole mount from on the ladder and bought a cheap 4' TV mast at Lowes.
  6. Tallahassee INTO rally

  7. Tallahassee INTO rally

    Does anyone know if we can have mail sent to the INTO rally in Tallahassee? If so what address should we use? Thanks Brian
  8. FMCA or Coach Net?

    I renewed with CoachNet.
  9. FMCA or Coach Net?

    Our Coach Net is up for renewal, I see FMCA recommends FMCA's Road Assist, are both services equal? I've used Coach Net for a tow and a couple jump starts. All have been great, but the FMCA's Road Assist is less money and if equal I'll try it. Thanks Brian
  10. Rand McNally 7720 RV GPS Performance

    Are you saying the 7720 couldn't find Myrtle Beach, SC? I have a 7720 works great, I just plugged in Myrtle Beach SC and it found it just fine.
  11. Bad Diesel Fuel

    Larry, I got fuel at the Jackson, GA Flying J on 3/22/15, it took about 30 minutes to put 97 gallons in, I "should" have stopped pumping but I was already there and never had issues with Flying J fuel, but after that I had to change fuel filters once so far and maybe more, we'll see. I dumped the filters out in a pan but no sign of water ( I didn't cut it open to see about algae). Is that where/when you got fuel?
  12. '09 Allegro Bus 36

    IMHO, Powerglide makes a great chassis and Cummins is a great choice. disclaimer, I have both :-)
  13. Spartan Chassis

    You might consider joining the Spartan group of FMCA.
  14. Been towing a towed behind an RV for over 20 year and full timing for over 6 years and have never used or felt the need for such a sign.
  15. Any St. Augustine RV Campground Suggestions?

    If you are an ELK member there's a nice Elks Lodge with a few sites in St Augustine.
