  1. Thanks for the input. I had heard that a charge controller may be needed. When would one be needed or would a fuse do the same thing?

    Solar Power

    I am thinking of getting a small solar panel to keep batteries charged (house and/or motor). what size would be better? do I need anything else to protect the battery?
  3. Thanks for all your input. We are coming from St Louis MO..
  4. But how is the driving, is it all 4 lanes?
  5. We will be at FMCA rally in Gillette and want to go to Yellowstone, Grand Teton and on to Cheyenne, Looking for the best route with least mountains (first time in mountains).
  6. Thanks for all the input. When we go back to the Ford truck mechanic we will pass all info to them. in the mean time we do drive in the right lane so we can coast to the shoulder if it should happen again.
  7. No, not an unusually hot day, and if we sit for a just a couple of minutes it starts up. Tiffin told us to replace the crank shaft sensor, but the Ford motor place didn't really think it was that.
  8. Will it help to put blocks under the front or the back jacks?
  9. When leveling our motorhome and the front wheels leave the ground, what is the best way to correct this (without moving sites)?
  10. We have a 2012 gas Allegro Open Road, 4 months old. On our first trip while going up a hill, in first gear, high revs, all power shut down (eng./elec). It happened again last week on the interstate in cruise -- again, high revs. Shut down again. So far dealer is stumped. Any ideas?
  11. We want to stop overnight between Rolla and Springfield on 44 in Missouri, any suggestions?
  12. We are leaving Gulf Shores AL and heading to St Louis. What type of service stations, truck stop, general services does highway 45 have between Mobile and Tupelo before we hit the interstate?
  13. Compare the 7710 to the 5510.
  14. We ended up at Red Bay longer than expected and the Gulf was clear by the time we went. Its Saturday here at Orange Beach and beautiful. Thanks for all your help.
  15. Rand McNally has their GPS (7701) on sale. Has anyone used this GPS and how does it compare to the Garmin reg. on truck version?
  16. Any recommendations-- places to stay, things to do? This is a spur of the moment trip because of the storm in the gulf, plans had to change. How are the road coming from Memphis and going back to St Louis from Mountain View?
  17. i think we might head toward Arkansas, that looks clear of the storm. How are the road to Mountain View for a motorhome?
  18. We are going to be in Red Bay Alabama Tuesday to visit Tiffin. We were planning on going down to the Gulf after that but now am in doubt because of the weather. We live in Missouri, so whats to see between Red Bay and St Louis.
  19. Thanks for the info. Last time I went thru was many, many years ago in a car and since I don't like tunnels it felt like it was a narrow tunnel that went on for hours
  20. How long is tunnel under Mobile Bay? Will motorhomes fit? Height and width?
  21. Are there any RV parks for motorhomes in the Ste Genevieve, MO area?
  22. We are interested in buying a lot or site in an RV resort/park either in Missouri, Illinois or Arkansas. Any ideas?
  23. We have changed our plans for next summer/fall. Originally we wanted to go from our home in Missouri and tour the northeast United States. Now, we've decided to use the FMCA Madison 2011 convention as a starting point, travel to Sault ste. Marie and on to Montreal and Toronto and then home through Detroit. Any suggestions for KOAs or local campgrounds, travel roads, sites, etc.? We are fairly new at this, so any help will be appreciated.
  24. Thank you. Any good parks with waterfalls, great views etc?
