  1. FYI, my 1989 Chevy 454 p-30 has now gone 103,000.
  2. Wayne, you have good points, that towables and motorhomes are very similar in design and features. My point of not renewing is that the organization forced upon the membership that we must include towables or the club will falter and die. This is like creating a classic Corvette club, and then when you don't have enough membership to sustain the club, you then accept classic Mustangs. They are both classic cars, with 4 wheels, an engine and transmission. By accepting something other than your original purpose (motorhomes, land yachts, converted coaches, etc), you diminish what the founders intended. I've been a member off and on since 1969, so maybe I'm probably just an old stick in the mud. Enjoy the "new", FMCA. I'll go subscribe to Motorhome Magazine and get a Good Sam membership. Chris g.

  3. "before I take that exit, to the highway in the sky, I'm gonna take old 30 one more time" Song by CW McCall called "old 30". Talks all about the Lincoln Highway, aka hwy 30. It was the first transcontinental highway. Most people think Route 66 has that distinction, but the Lincoln Highway pre-dates it by several years.
  4. I'm letting my membership lapse in October when it's up. Since the move to include towables, the club has become even less relevant to me. Maybe when I retire, the kids move out and we start full timing, I might see a desire to rejoin, but not for several years. Chris g. F3508s
  5. I've had it happen before on two different jeeps. Start simply: Rotate the tires or replace tires if they are getting low on tread. Also have the alignment checked. Finally, also have a tire person look at the rims and look for a bent rim. If none of this solves it, finally have a mechanic look at suspension, tye-rods, etc.
  6. I've had the fan clutch on our front engine gasser go out several times in the last few years. I've gotten really good at replacing them. Never had a catastrophic failure like your. Mine just stopped working, or start squeeling badly. I also got mine at oreilies with a lifetime warrenty so just swapped it out last week on a weekend getaway to the mountains at no cost.
  7. So , I got an email recently regarding a "health insurance" benifit from FMCA. I read with interest what it might cover, but all online info was very limited on specifics. The one thing that stood out was that at the bottom of the info, it said it was not a major medical plan, and not a replacement for regular health insurance. Why can't FMCA look into working with a provider to supply a discount to full major medical insurance for us who are too young for Medicare and medicaid? Chris
  8. Does anyone have a set of FMCA magazines from this time period that would list vehicles that can be flat-towed?
  9. When driving my 32' gas southwind, my wife yells at me alot. I don't think it's the engine noise, though.
  10. Me too! I love the flexibility to be able to cook on gas while boondocking. Also have 4 burners, and I've used up to 3 at one time.
  11. You might also want to try Prospect RV Park. http://prospectrv.com/?utm_source=rvparkreviews.com&utm_medium=referral&utm_campaign=RVLife_Campgrounds It's in Wheat Ridge, which is a suburb of Denver, but is close to I-70 and the main city. I've never stayed there myself, but it seems to get pretty good reviews. The clear Creek RV park is pleasant, since it's right next to the river, and parks, and Golden, which is a nice small town, but it can be considered crowded depending on the size of your rig. Dakota ridge is ok, but it gets mixed reviews since it's pricy, and some sites are small. Chris g. Westminster, CO
  12. We have a 1989 32' southwind. In the Sacramento area we visited relatives, went to Muir Woods NP, pier 39, and Alcatraz island.
  13. Bill, fyi, many people do travel in motorhomes without a toad. We just went from Denver to Sacramento and back on spring break (late March), with no car. Actually never traveled with one. For the RP, I would take everyone's advice about not driving 15 hours at one shot. Motorhome traveling is more leisurely and relaxed, than traveling in a car, where you "just want to get to your destination"
  14. Http://www.RVParkreviews.com Is a very useful website. Use it almost every vacation.
