  1. Well you got me second guessing so I called Garmin. They say using the trip planning app will save your route and will not reroute. Only exception is if there is construction or accident etc. that would not allow for the vehicle dimensions you set for your Rv.
  2. garmin RV 890. Use the trip planner app and route your trip. You can shape or customize the route then save the route. Once saved it supposedly will not reroute unless you initiate a reroute.
  3. Richard I did look at the route however the GPS I had at the time didn’t allow you to fix your route. For some reason it rerouted coming out of Jackson and by the time I figured it out it was too late. Clearly user error! We have upgraded to a unit that is geared to RV and allows for fixing the route. Got comfortable and end of the day all on me!
  4. So I guess best advice is invest in a GPS that is geared to RV’s!😬
  5. 10% grade and 20 mph curves for about eight miles. Our GPS sent us that way and was too late to turn around by the time we figured it out. I don’t think we would have made it down without losing brakes if we didn’t have the Jake brake . Only time I was truly concerned behind the wheel! The entire area is amazing and a must go just stay on Hwy 26. Here’s Wyoming’s warning https://www.wyoroad.info/Highway/Teton.pdf
  6. We retired last year and did Illinois to west coast. By the time we got to Oregon we booked all campgrounds for the rest of the trip. With the increase in Rv sales things were pretty much full everywhere from Colorado west. We didn’t stay anywhere that wasn’t full by dark even on weekdays. Takes some of the adventure out of it but that’s the way it is. Redwoods we’re definitely worth seeing but 200 miles is more than enough for a day drive there. Pagosa Springs in Colorado was our favorite place, easy to fill a week at least and still not see everything in the area. Enjoy the trip! Breaking the vacation mode is a harder adjustment then it would seem. FYI steer clear of Teton pass!

    That’s the forum this is on Herman.

    FMCA Classifieds

    kaypsmith I am also glad classifieds are not in the forums and did not suggest they should be. Not sure how else to say it but I am not suggesting any type of advertisement whatsoever in the forums, period! My comment was directed to FMCA on a forum titled FMCA feedback. The original message was regarding something I thought might be beneficial to members and FMCA and was intended for FMCA staff. Appears a staff change might have resulted in the monitoring of this page falling through the cracks. If not then this page should be shut down. As to the magazine, if you wanted to place an add the deadline has already closed for the March issue.

    FMCA Classifieds

    37 years in a customer service career taught me that listening to your customers is of utmost importance. Every once in a while there will be a valuable piece of information you can use or problems you can address before they get out of hand. I would argue that the best way to increase membership is getting all of us singing the praises of belonging to FMCA. There has to be communication with the membership beyond a magazine and offers to sell products or renewals to accomplish this. Frankly I joined for the assist program. I have since found there is a lot of value having access to these forums, especially for technical issues. I’m not sure it’s enough to convince others to join. I have to agree that someone on staff should be monitoring this forum, appears it’s done for Facebook and other socials.

    From the lack of response It would appear that leadership does not monitor this forum. Leaves me asking again why the “FMCA Feedback” forum exists.

    This forum actually is titled for FMCA feedback. Might want to change or delete it if suggestions are not welcome here.

    Classified ads are typically their own page.

    Does it matter what kind of member as long as they are a member? Charge $50.00 for a classified ad, just seems like a simple revenue source.

    I’m thinking an addition to the forums page. Digital ads would be nice and knowing sellers and buyers are members would be somewhat reassuring.
  15. I’m wondering why FMCA does not offer member classifieds. Most member organizations offer this and it is usually a significant source of revenue for them. Given the current situation with FMCA it seems like it would be worthwhile.
