  1. Shame this topic has to even be discussed. Where is the America we used to know. Which is the reason I still take my chances with a conceal permit, I might ended up in trouble, but that beats dead wrong.
  2. Haven't been to that many rallies, but the ones I went to seem to allow dogs pretty much anywhere the owner wants to take them. Even had dog contest and shows at some. Just take the necessary precautions such as temp and water and stuff like that and you will be fine.
  3. I know this will be a very small group of individuals who can provide information about replacing RV flooring in a RV., So far, I have only been able to get an estimate from Apache RV here, which specialiies in doing custom work in RV. I am sure there work in great, but really don't want o pay 10,000 for floor replacing thru out the coach. He stated that the value when sold would recovered that cost, I cannot see that, but might be correct. My point of this post has anyone ever had their tile and carpet replacement by any other local company, such as tile companies. Would really like to hear from you if you have. Apache RV stated could take up to one week to do, tile installer told he could do it all in 6 hours(doesn't sound right).
  4. Anyone can recommend a campground near or in Sedona Az. Going up there for a weekend. I do have a toad, so anywhere near by. Leaving next month. Would appreciate any campground you really enjoyed there that a good bargain and a nice park. Thanks
  5. Now I see no difference between GS and FMCA. I have a feeling that this site will lose its appeal. I read Forest River forum a lot and to be honest, half of the time I have no idea what the unit is being discussed looks or is TT or 5th wheeler. That WAS the greatest thing about FMCA, it was about motorized RVs. Even during rallies, vendors will required more space due to new vendors for towed units. And the list go on and on. I have until Apr for renewal , unless they offer a rebate, but don’t see a need to renew right now.
  6. Has anyone had problems on being accepted at a campground due to age (rv in good shape) . I ran across a older 1999 DP, and might entertain the idea if I can get some feedback on people experiences and observations. Thank you
  7. Going to balloon festival next weekend and noticed that festival starts early AM and last till late PM. Also understand no pets allowed in the festival (unfortunate). Was wondering if anyone has attended this festival in the past while traveling with a pet, I really don’t desire to leave her home with a friend. Would really like your comments, pro or cons. Thank you
  8. Burning man festival is taking place in NV starting the 27th. I know it in the desert where it happens. Wondering if anyone has ever attended in a RV and what to expect?
  9. They advertising for 44 dollars a year you can one night at a time at a winery or farm. Sounds good, but not sure what the feedback is actually from members
  10. Was wondering if there are any Harvesthosts members who would mind sharing their experiences and opinions of this membership. Thank you.
  11. Not everyone can make rallies to vote. I think it would be beneficial to FMCA to send out ballots to all current members to vote, Absentee ballots. Would prove to give a equal voice for everyone
  12. I love using pellet grills at home for BBQing, grilling, baking, smoking, etc etc. I haven't noticed any that you can just fit in one of the bays of RV. I was wondering what others members carry with them. I really interested in charcoal or pellets. I carry a portable gas grill which is great for steaks, and no so much for chicken (especially dark meat). I don't enjoy fast cooking, give me slow cooking to get that good smoke BBQ flavor. Wondering if anyone else has suggestions on grill that doesn't take 2 to unload.
  13. Just read where when you hook up your sewer at a campground, you open only the gray portion, and leave the black handle closed till you ready to leave the campgrounds. His justification was if you open the black tank only the liquid drain leaving you with a solid buildup in your tank. I always open both then back flush black when I am leaving. Wonder method is most common. Would love to hear your thoughts.
  14. 7.5 is about what I get average. Will get high 6s and high 7s depending upon road condition. 35 ft with Ford Focus in towing
  15. Thanks for the advise. I am still looking for the right one for me. I have gas coach now so taking my time to find one I can't past up lol. Again thanks
  16. I don't have anything to add to this. All post were spot on. Having driven OTR, I always appreciated when a RV would pass me and acknowledge the pass with his 4 ways or lights. Definitely appreciated his road courtesy and knowledge of others with long rigs sharing our highways. Also enhances safety. Thanks
  17. Used definitely. Would like to stay under 125. Year not a deal breaker.
  18. Being new to RVing I keep hearing about high end RV units. I noticed most of them are always in the 40 ft plus size. Was wondering what you guys thinks would be a high end type coach with a max length of 36 or 37. I can't store any larger then that. I keep scanning RVT web site, but would really help if I would know what brand to look for what and what to stay away from. Any comments would be helpful. Should mention only interested in diesels pushers.
  19. When buying a diesel pusher I noticed some with rather higher mileage 50-80 thousands. I am told by the salesman not to worry that these miles only indicate that the engine was just really broken in. But I have talked also to people who wanted to sell with same mileage as stated above and the dealer telling them the coach has a lot miles. Not sure what to believe.
  20. Love the concept. I am sure most chapters have veterans in them. But just thinking wouldn't it be sorta cool to have a chapter of military retirees. Can hear the war stories and upman shi- of each military branch. Go Air Force
  21. I did purchase a battery disconnect from Amazon. Hopefully this will take of it. Thinking I buying one of those remote cutoff, but that will have to wait. Had to purchaze a new baseplate for this ones do wiring as ford doesn't allow interrogation with its electronic systems any longer. Thanks for the info
  22. I just purchased a new Ford Focus, that can be tow 4 wheels down. Looking in the owners manual it states that I must disconnect the negative pole on the battery before towing then reconnect and run 15 minutes when I finish and want to use the car. My question is this. Since there are so many computer things such as blue tooth, XM radio, to list a few. Will that be required to be reset each and every time I remove the negative cable. or is there a way around that. Please help.
  23. Love that idea. Now you just need a way to mass produce them. Sure winner there. Great job
  24. I am happy to report she is doing much better. I think it just took time to get over her anxiety. She still at times will bark but if you stare her down she does just fine. Looking forward to our trip with her
  25. Just recently obtained a 7 month yorkie who whims when no one is within her sight. She will continuously do it without a break. We try to ignore her but definitely not getting much sleep with her shimming all night. We want to travel with her in RV but really fearful how she act when we out or something. I would be concerned the noise on fellow campers. Has anyone encountered this problem and figured out how to correct it. Would really like help on this one. Thanks
