  1. In Surprise, AZ just northwest of Phoenix is Happy Trails Resort. We just sold the lot we have owned since 2003. There are 2001 lots there. Depending on what you are wanting when we sold ours February 17th there were 59 lots for sale. 3 had super wide homes, 7 villas and the others were park models or RV lots. RV lots depending on location in the resort were selling for $60,000 to $70,000. Address is 17200 W Bell Rd, Surprise, AZ 85374. It is a gated senior HOA property. Depending on your interest, there are 70 clubs. Quilting, woodworking, ceramics, pickle ball etc.
  2. We don’t know what size tires are on your RV, but I would question the total inflation capacity. For our 22.5” tires on our motor home that are inflated to 107-110 pounds, I use a Porter Cable 150# pancake style air compressor. I like it so well when my 60 gallon shop air compressor failed, I replaced it with another Porter Cable just like the one in my motor home. I have a similar jump start/air compressor to the one you listed. It works well to jumpstart an auto, but not a motor home. Will top off golf cart tires and auto tires, again not the motor home.
  3. Yes, just depends on what day and time.
  4. When we did have bikes, we did have the rack on the back of the towed auto. We did find that we had to bungee cord the ends of the rack to the top of the hatch to keep the side to side bouncing minimized.
  5. We filled our 27 gallon LPG tank one time this winter in Arizona. The gas is used for cooking and morning furnace heat until the heat pumps can keep the motor home warm. I doubt that you will use more than one fill on yor 27 gallon tank, and while on the road, many truck stops have propane available.
  6. Actually, it is just the reverse. Gas monthly. If you cannot drive a DP for at least 25 miles, just let it sit. During the summer we go to a rally monthly, but in the winter it sits for 5 to 6 months. Caterpillar and Cummins state that you do not need to exercise monthly, but Onan generators do need to be exercised monthly to keep the windings dry.
  7. The only discounts that I know about are for the FMCA Partners. There are some campgrounds, tires, lithium batteries, PassPort America, etc. You can look at all of them online at FMCA.com. Open Member Benefits to review. I have checked into campgrounds that offer Good Sam discount. I ask if they do the same for FMCA. I have always gotten the discount.
  8. Look for a left light on the motor home that has burned out. Also, bad ground can have similar problems.

    Camp at an event

    Usually there is not a problem leaving early. Suggest you let the Parking crew know as they are parking you. They may want you to be escorted out by parkers. They are very cooperative.
  10. I have posted this before, but there are 2,000 services that answer the phone for roadside assistance providers. Many of those really don’t know the difference between a RV and automobile to be able to give the best service. I have had two positive experiences with FMCA Roadside Assistance, and I just renewed.
  11. Don’t know how long of a trip you are planning, but Arizona, New Mexico, Texas etc will be very hot during the summer. Therefore I would go southern route first and northern route for your return. Just depends on the length of your trip.
  12. Please let us know because the way I stated was the original intent.
  13. I thought only members can post on the forum, but non-members can view.
  14. I just renewed my FMCA Roadside Assistance for another year. Many different companies provide similar plans, but some of those really don’t understand RV’ers. Just remember when you call and don’t get the response you expect or the person talking to doesn’t seem to know what you really need, hang up and call again. Probably, you will get a different person. There are 2,000 different people answering calls like yours. Many are operating from home and don’t have the speedy resources to handle your issue. Also, download the complete FMCA Roadside Assistance contract/policy so that you can read exactly what is covered and what is not.
  15. Per your suggestion I went and looked at the acronym list in General Discussion and didn’t find HP 4X; so, my thought that we need to spell out terms is still valid. And so what is PC? Or post Turtle? And what does any of this have to do with being political? Maybe a change in attitude would stimulate other opinions vs stifling posters.
  16. We don’t need a dictionary to go to to look up terms that members use. Just use the full words. I wish that there was a spelling checker to use before posting. The popup window does help. I can remember numbers, but don’t expect me to spell correctly.
  17. As a curtsy to the new members or those searching for answers, please don’t use acronyms or abbreviations, such as:HP or even H2O. Take the time to spell our your message.
  18. Yes, but it may take a heavy duty sewing machine. The open hem in the bottom will have 6 layers of fabric on the edges.
  19. Actually, I mounted the twist clips with pop rivets. If I would have used screws, I could have cracked the fiberglass. If clip fails, it is easy to drill out and replace.
  20. Have you totally powered down, waited 30 seconds and powered back up?
  21. While vinegar will clean lime/calcium deposits, I don’t think bleach or hydrogen peroxide will clean out those deposits. But they will sanitize the water system.
  22. Yes, empty and flush several times. Take out the bottom plug and flush out as much of the calcium flakes in the bottom as you can. Flush the water out again.
