Slight change in direction in the thread, does anyone know if we will need the AZ off road sticker if we do some OR rides.  Here in Tucson they have been warning about this and are saying ALL vehicles that go OR will have to have it.  It is $25 per vehicle for one year???????????????

I plan on calling AAA tomorrow or stopping by.

  Jim: its been my experience that any off road license is honored in any states. In CA. and AZ. both I've done off road on both CA and MT license. I've also been off road with both CA. and MT. license on street legal vehicles off road. They might require a 6' flag.
  You might look at American Sand Association website. They are an excellent site for info. www.asasand.com

UPDATE: as of Jan. 1 2010 all off road vehicles under 1800# will be required to display the AZ off road sticker. I'm unable to determine if other states stickers wiil be honored.

Another twist of the discussion.

We were scheduled to take the coach in for an oil change this morning and found out they may not get to us in time for departure on Monday.  So we canceled  the appointment.  Does anyone know of a reliable service in Quartzsite that will change engine oil in a cat diesel engine?

Terry B., I remember that last year, or maybe a year or so ago, that you had your generator oil changed by a mobile service, do they also do engines?

Marsha, There's a Mobile RV oil change guy here at Indio who put flyers in the registration packets. Flyer says that he's in Quartzsite, too. Don't know anything about him other than the flyer with name and prices and phone number.

A mobile lube guy I used at FMCA in Indio a few years ago was able to do everything. He carried a bunch of filters, had an air lube gun and an oil waster tank on board. IIRC he told me he works all the rallies and QZ.

There is a CAT place in Blythe, where we had the oil changed one time.  It is an open air garage, meaning all work is done outside, not the cleanest place, but then not much in Blythe is.  Fred was satisfied with the work.  This was years ago, so it may have changed by now.  Just thought I'd throw it at you, if you are really up against it.  Might try googling it, or check with the CAT place.  I thought it was off the last exit east at Blythe.  You can see it from I-10.

There has been a mobile oil change guy in QZ the last few years -- at least. He used to place a sign on the North side of the 95/10 bridge, but told me last year he wasn't able to for a reason I have since forgot.

Anyway, would also imagine the fellow in Indio is the same guy. I have used him to lube and oil both my Jeep and Adventurer rig the past few years, and intend to use him again when I get parked in QZ.

Russ also used him last January at the Rally -- so perhaps he would have his phone number and such. If need be, I will search for his receipt to get that info for you. It "is" a nice service in that he comes out on the desert to your rig vs. having to take the rig to a service center. And finally, his pricing was far less than taking it anywhere else.

Marsha,

Why don't you wait until after the rally to have your oil changed?  An extra month or two should not make any difference on your big diesel engine.

Thanks everyone for the info.  The mobile guy might just be the ticket.

Phil, the last time we had the oil changed was 11,000 miles ago  ::) before we left for the Canadian Maritimes.  So, it's really due. 

Thanks Terry for the phone number, at least we can call and set up an appointment.

See everyone at QZ!

Ernie,

We will be in QZ about the 13th BUT not in the area of the RV Forum.  We will be with the Newmar one about 3 miles south.  I'm not sure of the exact location as there are no advance people to save the spot.  There will be signs giving the location as you head either noth or south on 95.  Signs will either say "Newmar" or "NKK".  I will give you a call when I know for sure.

Thanks for the new phone NO.

  Jim, will you be in the BLM campsite off exit 19??
  We are supposed to meet up with friends there around the 15th, depending on my wifes return.
  We will be in a Kountry Star pulling a Grand Vitara, MT "V" tags on both.

Terry,

We will be south at what used to be LaPaz road, it is the first paved road about 6 miles south of QZ for a few days with the Newmar group, then move to the RV Forum location about the 16th or 17th, dates are still fluid.  I nned to get them pinned down for someone else soon!!

Oh gosh, I assumed you'd tried Cummins West. They won't ostracize you for having a CAT  ;) BTW they're a Coach Care facility and have hookups if you want/need to overniight.

At this late date, we'll have it done in QZ or wait till we get home.

With Cummins West, are they pretty good about keeping appointments and getting to you timely?  The one thing we're a bit frustrated with at the Cat facility is that often the coach sits for a couple of days before they get to you.  But they do really good work.

Haven't had that problem at Cummins West. They even have separate bays for RVs vs trucks, and their techs are trained to work on a lot more than the chassis.

For $20 you could sign up by phone for the Cummins Power Club, and get 10% off every bill (parts and labor). But I suspect they'd realize your engine serial number isn't one of theirs  ;D

 Thanks Jim: this is our first trip to Quartzsite so we will be learning as we go. We will try to do as much as possible in a few days stay, a lot of wandering by car. My wife, a credit card & a swap meet all point to financial doom for me.  terry

  Thanks Betty: you've eloquently covered the key Female phrases designed to change husbands minds.... 'bargains' & 'save money'.
  "Cheapest I've ever seen it" usually works as well.
  In MT it's always "If we don't buy it NOW we'll be paying Sales Tax later", that one ALWAYS works.

Marsha - Cummins West is where we had work done last year. Had no problem with scheduling, they worked on it the day of our appointment. Of course, we were living in it at the time but we were able to park & plug in to their electric for 2 nights.
