  1. FYI, Got this Wednesday:

    UPDATE: Wide-load restrictions and lane closures scheduled to begin May 29 on Interstate 15 in Arizona through Virgin River Gorge

    Expect delays between Mesquite, Nevada, and St. George, Utah and a 224-mile detour for loads wider than 10 feet.

    The Arizona Department of Transportation advises wide-load haulers and other drivers to plan for around-the-clock restrictions on I-15 through the Virgin River Gorge beginning Wednesday, May 29 and continuing through spring 2020. All loads wider than 10 feet must use a 224-mile detour route as crews repair three bridge decks along the narrow highway in northwestern Arizona. Other drivers should plan for delays and allow extra travel time while a section of I-15 is narrowed to one lane in each direction.

    • Wide-load detour: Signs will direct wide-load traffic to the detour route of US 93, Nevada State Route 319, and Utah State Route 56 between Las Vegas and Cedar City, Utah.
    • North- and southbound I-15 will be narrowed to one lane between mileposts 13 and 16.

    Because of the terrain within the Virgin River Gorge and the narrow width of I-15, crews must reduce the width of travel lanes to 10 feet during construction. This will make I-15 impassible in the 3-mile work zone for vehicles wider than 10 feet. Crews will also move traffic over to one side of the highway while working on the other, providing one travel lane in each direction.

    The $6.4 million project will rehabilitate three bridge decks on I-15. Work is scheduled to last at least one year.

    Drivers should proceed through the work zone with caution, slow down and watch for construction personnel and equipment.

    It sounds to me his computer security software is doing its job. I have gotten similar messages from the FMCA website over the years and finally turned off email notifications.  Its possible you need to update your software if you're not getting this message. 

    Yes, the security software (Norton) is doing it's job. Note this is not on the website, it's embedded in the e-mails. I only shows up when I open a FMCA e-mail, no others.

    I can't help you  the drive in because we came into Arco from the south, we stayed in Arco than drove tow to Carters Of Moon park. I am writing let you know of a place you may want to visit while there. It is about 20 miles south of Arco It is the Worlds First Nuclear Power Plant EBR1 it is open for tours. We found it interesting.


    Definitely worth a stop. During the summer months they have guided tours.

    Any steep grades or hairpin curves from Gallup NM to Monument Valley (hwy 191 and 163)?


    As others have noted, US491 out of Gallup then west on US64 out of Shiprock to US160. Because you don't want any steep grades you need to continue to Kayenta then US163 to Monument Valley. If you use US191 to get to US163 and enter into Monument Valley from Mexican Hat you will need to do a 10% grade coming out of Mexican Hat.

    If you plan on traveling the west you really need to get used to steep and curvey roads otherwise you will be missing lots of cool places.

  6. The wandering you describe is an all too common issue with the original Monaco Roadmaster chassis. If you have a Shepard steering box it should be replaced with a TRW adjustable box, then the addition of a watts link on the front axle and cross bars on the rear. All of these modifications and success stories are on iRV2's Monaco forum. I did it and am very happy with the results. None of the add on steering stabilizers will repair the problem.

  7. My cable operated slide is 26 feet long and has operated flawlessly for the last 5 years. I do inspect it on a regular basis and have never seen a problem. On mine the worse part is that it is very difficult to access if something did go wrong. I carry a spare cable and repair kit just in case.
