  1. Planning to visit the Grand Canyon in Sept./Oct. this year. We will be traveling from central Fl. and need as much information about length of time for traveling and places to visit along the way. We are traveling in a class A motorhome. We also plan to go to Bryce and Zion while in the area. We are retired and not in a hurry.
  2. We will be in Cooperstown N.Y. till Monday. We have about 2 weeks before being in Bethpage L.I. the end of month. Looking for places to visit in New York during that time frame.
  3. Feb. trip to Austin Texas being planned. Looking for c/g recommendations along with interesting places to visit along the way. We are planning a month for the round trip
  4. how did you bleed the air out of the line steve
  5. Looking for a route from Ocala Fl. to Hiawassee Ga. We have a 36' M.H. with a tow dolly. Looking to avoid narrow roads as much as possible. We are staying at Mt. View C/G. Thanks Steve
  6. Found the problem to be a result of weight coming off and the tire out of balance. Called FMCA Michelin , and replaced the tire. Please try to leave sarcastic remarks off the site and deal with solutions. Thanks
  7. I had been hearing an uncomfortable noise coming from my front driver side tire. When the wheel was turned I could see at least two places where the tire was bald and appeared to be square. Obviously this was creating the thumping sound I heard. All the tires were installed the same time and air maintained with my via compressor. The other 5 tires all seem good with plenty of tread, even looking new. Has anyone experienced a situation like this? They are 22 inch tires on my 06 bounder.

    Best Tow Dolly Tires

    I have been using a master tow dolly for the last 6 years and have had many blowouts. Each blowout usually rips the polyethylene fenders off . Our last experience not only blew out the tire, and caused the fender to break away, but also mangled the steel frame preventing the spare from being put on. I keep the tire pressure inflated and the vehicle does not exceed the tow dollies weight capacity. I have been using a radial tire from tractor supply, but have also used D rated bias ply with the same results. All suggestions welcome. I am switching to a Goodyear American made tire.
  10. I am planning a trip to the Maritime Provinces this spring-summer. I would appreciate any information about this area. What to see. Where to stay. your experiences. We will visit Nova Scotia, P.E.I. and New Brunswick before heading to Quebec City. Thanks Steve
  11. How do you not lock the steering wheel? With the ignition off the wheel is locked on the Patriot? When I tow my 2015 VW Beetle my ignition is off the car is in park and no parking brake. However the wheel is locked. Is this the same procedure with the Patriot?
  12. I recently purchased a 2014 Jeep Patriot. I am currently using a Tow Dolly for my VW. Can I use the Tow Dolly for the Jeep? Can I 4 down with this car? Thanks Steve
  13. We will be traveling this summer to Memphis from Natchez driving parts of the Natchez Trace. Are the campgrounds along the Trace busy or should we look for private CG's along the way. I am having difficulty finding private campgrounds can anyone recommend some.
  14. We like to travel no more than 300 miles usually 200-250 is good. We are in central Florida near Ocala.
  15. We would like to take our Class A 35' M.H. to Memphis this July. We are looking for places of interest to see along the way. We like to travel secondary roads as well as major highways when necessary. Suggestions for campgrounds are welcomed. Thanks
  16. We are traveling north to L.I. for Thanksgiving with our family. Once north of Norfolk Va. are there any recommended c/gs that will be available. We need one night since our final stop will be Bethpage L.I. State parks will do also. Thanks
  17. We will be heading towards Akron to visit a friend and while ther drive into Cleveland to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. From Akron we will be heading east to Gettysburg.This will be the second week of April and I need a c/g near Akron with access to Cleveland.
  18. We are looking for c/g that will have cabin rentals for grandchildren and parents with space for our motorhome. We have seen Medcalf Acres and spoken to owner, however they want payment in full with no refunds. I would not feel comfortable with that policy. Any recommendations for cabin/site rentals would be appreciated. We would like to stay in proximity to Lake George also. Thanks
  19. Thank You that is an excellent idea. steve
  20. We will be traveling to Cleveland from Nashville and need a good campground overnite.We will then head to Cleveland to the rock and roll hall of fame before we head east from there to Gettysburg. Any recommendations would be appreciated.
  21. Mine also missed Topsail this summer by 3 miles, and put us on a one way,dead end street in Fayetteville N.C. We had to take the car off the tow dolly and the gps insisted our address was across the street, when in actuality it was 9 miles away. These 2 problems were the only ones in thousands of travel miles. I like the features.
  22. We are planning a trip out west leaving central Florida next May for a few months. We do not want to do one niters, we would like to see the sites along the way. How do you make reservations in the parks without having to drive till you get there. Are there other RV parks near the national parks where we are close enough. I understand that reservations well in advance are necessary. Is this true? How do you enjoy a trip like this without rushing from one point to the other. Thank you
  23. My wife and I are looking to step up in size and class to a Class A Fleetwood Pace Arrow. We are told that the previous (only) owner put 8,000 miles on it locally. My concerns are low mileage and gas mileage. Currently, my Class C Ford V-10 gets about 7+mpg. What are your thoughts about the low mileage and the MPG?
  24. We will be traveling from Destin, FL to Chattanooga, TN. We thought that somewhere around Birmingham would be good to stop. I saw Oak Mtn. State Park,but the reviews were not great, so any recommendations would be appreciated. Also any recommendations for Chattanooga area. Thanks.
