  1. We had reservations for two days but with the chance that Hurricane Maria might hit when we would be there we had to cancel. We were inside their 7 day cancel or pay policy so they charged one night. Claiming they had held the space for those dates so lost the income, funny thing is another campground not too far away had 45 plus spaces. They stated the hurricane wasn't coming and there would only be 30 mil per hr winds etc. We prefer not to take chances with serious weather when it can be avoided They were rude on the phone and hung up while we were still talking. Then when we decided within a couple of hours to delay and come up behind the storm we sent an e mail. They explained so sorry but you cant move your deposit. Might be a very nice place but the customer service is very very poor
  2. Monument Valley

    We stayed there early Aug and found the sites to be what one would expect for the area. All dirt with a little bit of shade and views that you cant find any place on the planet. The staff was very helpful and the pool a delight at the end of the day. We took a sunrise tour booked by the staff and enjoyed the sun coming up over the Mittens.
  3. 1999 Holiday Rambler Air Bag System

    Hi, This is a very basic system with no auto level or dump. You park, dump air, level with jacks and your home. I have soaped the bags and the total system and find no leaks. With the air at 60 PSI I figure there is some leakage from the PPV and that's where it goes. So I think I will change the PPV which goes to the air bag manifold. Going down the road is still one to figure out. But the height control valves do exhaust air in a big bump like we see on interstate 20 in Miss. So I think that is a major consumer of air. Your right the shocks don't owe us a thing so will change them and see if it helps dampen things. Thanks Rich
  4. Hi a couple of questions on this very simple non automatic system 1. When parked and dumping the air it stops at about 60 psi in the secondary tank. I think that is the PPV working as it should. But then in less than 8 hr the system will show zero pressure on the secondary tank which feeds the air bag system the primary system holds air fine. Ok so I wonder if the ride height valve is asking for air and it should get none if the PPV is holding ??. By design would the ride height valve (Barksdale) exhaust air when it is in the demand cycle ie coach lower asking for air NOTE this is a Monaco dump system and takes the air from the small blue lines that go from the ping tank (secondary) to the ride height valve I have soaped every connection and can find no leak and can not see a leak at the ride height when down at the 60 psi level. 2. Going down the road we consume enough air that the compressor kicks in every 10 min or so. More so when the road is rough. I assume this is air from the bags exhausting due to more than normal movement. ? dose this system exhaust out the ride height valve ? Rides well corners ok etc BUT if the shocks were getting weak perhaps we are overworking the air bags and causing the exhausting ? No leaks or oil showing but close to 90k on the Bilsteins Note on the service at Freightliner last time they rated the front ride height valves as slow to level. The ride height was checked and found ok Thanks for your help and comments
  5. Firestone 560 Plus 255/70R22.5

    Herman, I don't follow the last comment in your opinion do you mean Firestone. Is a good tire ?
  6. Firestone 560 Plus 255/70R22.5

    Anyone have experience with these tires? Locally they are available and about $900 less on 6 than Michelin.
  7. XZE Vs. XRV Tires

    Time for new tires we are going up from 235 80 22.5 XZE to 255 80 22.5 The question is XRV or XZE I think the extra side wall material in the XZE might be a plus. They are also more available here in Ar. Suggestions and comments
