  1. I have over 80,000 miles and 9 years on my BO cables.. upgraded BO Patriot system after first 5 years (no charge and in my case, excellent customer service ). When I changed towed...bought a new base plate for that one and new tow bar after the first 55,000 miles - went to the 10000 bar... didn't have a need to switch cables so still have the new ones set aside for whenever. Have had the $35 annual maintenance done on it annually but at Minot, I couldn't get signed up for service this year as they were already full. Hopeful they will increase staff for this valuable service at rallies. Have been pleased with and comfortable using the BO system .. sure others are fine with their choice as well.
  2. Kieth... I am heavily involved with the Badger Chapter of FMCA with members from WI, IA, MN, IL, MI, IN, NE. SD, KS, MO, AL, TX, and a few full-timers. I'll send you a PM with info on our Chapter, our rallies this year and next, and a "rolling rally" we have with 25+ units going collectively on a sightseeing trip while in route to Minot and going into that rally together..
  3. Sent you a pm on some..
  4. I have attended a couple sessions on being a "Wagon Master" or "Rally Host" or whatever you wish to call them at a couple regional FMCA rallies..I believe those were well attended and received well.... like others, have hosted a few.... Our chapter has created a committee for purpose of Identifying potential locations, developing themes and activities, training for and then supporting the hosts of the rallies. There will be a dedicated "round table" discussion at each rally specifically for membership suggestions and Q&A's.
  5. Following month or so in Gold Canyon area, we did Distant Drums RV in Camp Verde in late March for a few days and used car to visit local sites, Jerome, train ride .. then did Williams for a couple days with train ride into and return from Grand Canyon.. Weather pretty uncertain for RV travel in that area for March so plan ahead. May not find good site at this late date?.
  6. Good likelihood that they and maybe the Corporate folks are "selling" or "sharing" that added info they have on you now to other third parties....
  7. Tried search for info but didn't find so asking here for best route from Las Cruces NM to Roswell NM .. Hwy 70 or Hwy 82? Have lost or misplaced my Mountains West book. Have 45 ft Allegro Bus and towing a Jeep..
  8. We'll be there as well - They also have a Facebook page where you can get all the info or request same from Gary & Glenda..
  9. It does... understand it's not available yet... look forward to seeing it when it's posted.. Thank you..
  10. Maybe I missed something but I see a list of titles, I see a list of vendors, I see a children's list of events. What I was looking for is an actual schedule of events and seminars....It would show 1) the event or seminar, 2) what day is it being held or done, 3) what time would it be going on. Maybe this doesn't exist yet but thought it did...... With this info, a person could plan on which seminars and what events they would want to / be able to attend.... and when they would have free time.... etc.... What events and seminars are on Wed and what times are they...... etc
  11. Wondering if anyone knows where I can see the full schedule planned on events, seminars, meetings while at Gillette WY convention this year. Thought I saw it in one of earlier magazines but have apparently discarded that one. The FMCA website has a info box states that one can "see the full digital schedule below" but there's nothing there, and an email sent 2 weeks ago apparently didn't reach a human there so still looking for that info. If anyone knows where the complete schedule may be, I would appreciate being able to find it. Thanks in advance.
  12. It may not work for everyone but we sold our previous 2009 Allegro Bus on RV Trader....listed it one day, had 7 inquiries in first 10 days and sold it in 2 weeks... at least it's an avenue worth trying.
  13. Planning on meeting you then unless GB mtg or volunteering duties prevent it.
  14. By "short trips" camping I'm presuming you mean around the southern IL area... There are 2 or 3 FMCA Chapters that have rallyies every summer month in that area... They are listed on FMCA Chapters page along with their contact info. If you were interested in longer trips into and around Wisconsin, you certainly would be welcome to join the Badger Chapter as well (Our information is also posted in the " Chapters" listing but there are Chapters that have majority of the members being from your area that likely would welcome your participation. Let me know if I could be of any service in connecting you up with a Chapter you would likely enjoy camping with.
  15. Not elaborate but higher end... Pleasant, full hook-ups nice sites in resort with nice facilities -like Canyon Vista & Gold Canyon Resort in gold Canyon AZ, Bella Terra in Foley AL, Cypress Trails in Ft Myers, Myakka River Resort in Port Charlotte, FL........... realize different parks have different plus/minuses but we enjoy all the pluses ...Likewise, if I can avoid it, just don't wish to sign in to somewhere with a strong negative feature like next to or in flight path from an airport, next to busy railroad, congested neighborhood bordering the park perimeter, sites under dirty live oak trees, etc. The ones I've found around Indio CA look like nice ones with some reasonably priced and others at very high end prices ... but the two around Cathedral City appear just as nice or more with lower rates... ( Desert Shadows and Outdoor Resort). When using Good Sam reference, 8.5 or better, If using PA, pretty much 5's, Park Reviews 4.4 or better.....
