    Driving through Renfro Valley in Kentucky???

    Way, way back in the 1950s and 60s, before interstates, we used to drive to Florida on two lane roads. One very scenic one I remember from back then was US 25 through the Renfro Valley. I think it was between Berea and Corbin, KY, but I am not sure. (I remember driving with some friends...

    Did you know Rand McNally lifetime maps are good for only 36 months??

    FYI - I purchased a Rand McNally 7725 GPS in Sept 2013, and it came with "lifetime" maps. I just tried to update those maps and had problems, so I called Rand McNally's support desk. Turns out that they define "lifetime" as only 36 months, after which they can decide to no longer support a...

    Loud squeaking noise coming from overhead bunk area of motorhome

    I have a 20102 32' Fleetwood Tioga Ranger Class C that I have driven 154,000 miles, and right now I am in New Mexico, headed to Arizona, and then California. About a month ago, I started hearing a very loud squeaking noise that I thought was likely coming from where the cab-over bed attaches to...

    RV Parks near Colonial Williamsburg???

    I am considering a visit to Jamestown and Colonial Williamsburg, VA. in the fall, probably in late September. The East Coast always is a problem for me because I prefer staying in state, national, and county campgrounds. I travel alone, and am an older woman, so I don't need playgrounds...

    New Mexico Quarantine Requirements

    Last summer, I purchased a New Mexico annual camping pass and made reservations at state parks starting February 1 and going through the end of March.  So far, no one has cancelled my reservations, but I have also not been able to get anyone either at the specific state parks or the NM state...

    Grand Canyon North Rim email regarding lack of water and reducing numbers

    I have reservations in the campground at the North Rim of Grand Canyon for October 18-22.  I just got an email from Grand Canyon telling me that they have set a new limit of 6 people per campsite and that there would be no water fill-up there because they are still working on restoring broken...

    All running/side marker lights are out on my motorhome

    All of my running lights (the little lights on the side of my motorhome, both higher and lower ones) are out.  I took one out and replaced it, but it looked fine.  It still does not work, so it is likely not the bulb. I am thinking this must be a fuse somewhere.  My first thought was to look...

    Another Old Lady Question

    My Class C does not have automatic levelers, and I am in the habit of using 2 x 10s cut in two-foot sections.  These are cheap and work well.  However, they are heavy, and as I get older, my hand strength is getting less and less.  (As I get older, I also find that I am more willing to accept...

    Suggestions for Calgary, Alberta, other than Lake Louise and Banf?

    Any suggestions for the area around Calgary, Alberta?  I have several days reservations at Lake Louise and at Banf (Village 2), but have ended up with a few (5) extra days between Waterton Lakes and Banf.  I could stretch my time at Banf, but wondered what else there was to see in the area in...

    Overweight Problem (Motorhome, not me!)

    I live in a 2012 32' Fleetwood Tioga Ranger.  The cargo carrying capacity is 1,300 pounds.  I weighed my rig twice in one of those Oregon weigh stations along two-lane roads where there is no booth but they leave the scales on.  Last fall, overall weight was 14,900 pounds, which is 400 pounds...

    Parking for Oversized Vehicles at Portland, OR, Airport

    Has anyone ever parked an oversized vehicle (motorhome or trailer) at the Portland, Oregon, airport? I have parked at several other airports across the country, but cannot find any information about oversized vehicle parking at this one.

    Eugene, OR, to Valley of Fire, north of Las Vegas in late February

    I am a very experienced motorhome driver, but am concerned about the best (least likely to be snowy and icy) route to take from Eugene to Valley of Fire State Park, north of Las Vegas.  Late February means there will still be snow in the mountains, and I will not drive in snow.  If it says to...

    Cost of New Brakes on Motorhome?

    I am pretty sure I need new brakes on my 32' Class C motorhome, which was built on a Ford e-450 chassis.  I had a Ford dealer check everything (40 point or whatever) a couple of months ago, and they checked the box that said brakes were OK.  However, vehicle has 104,000 miles and has been driven...

    Strange Sewer Odor Problem

    I had to replace my toilet a couple of months ago in Florida because it would not hold water, and I was getting tired of the tough job of replacing the seals. I had a certified mobile RV guy try to replace the seals and he could not get it to stop leaking. At this point, I decided really wanted...

    Where to put new tires?

    I have a 2012 32' Class C motorhome with the usual rear duallies.  In January 2014, I had two sidewall blowouts within a month, and so was eligible under the Michelin Dec 2013 recall to get 7 brand new replacement tires.  At that point, I had 32,000 miles on my vehicle.  (I am a full-timer so do...

    Help! My propane alarm just went off

    What a horrible noise!  I pushed the mute button and the flashing red light is now green.  Whew.  I am 99% sure I do not have a propane leak.  It says on the detector that I should replace it after 60 months.  I bought new 51 months ago, and am a full-timer.  My vehicle sat on the dealer's lot a...

    Recommendation for Ford service for Class C south of Cleveland?

    I think I have a bad front left wheel bearing and need to get it checked when I am in Ohio in a couple of weeks.  I also want to brakes checked and possibly replaced since I have 64,000 miles on them. Does anyone know of a Ford truck dealer that can service a gas 32' Class C motorhome that is...

    Las Vegas Airport Oversized Vehicle Lot Parking

    Has anyone ever parked a motorhome in this lot?  I need to fly to my son's house after the Christmas holidays and need to park here.  Just wondered if it is fenced.  It looks paved and has lighting. I had a very good experience leaving my vehicle at the Tampa Airport and highly recommend that...

    Route into Yosemite from San Francisco Area

    I have reservations for a week at Upper Pines in Yosemite starting October 7.  I will be driving from the San Francisco area and returning to that same area.  I have a 32' Class C and have more than a year's experience full-timing, so I have driven on a lot of mountain roads. My GPS and Google...

    Motorhome Tire Pressure Question

    I have a 15,000 lb (loaded weight) 32' 2012 Class C that I have driven for 25,000 miles.  I get my tires checked every month or two.  I just got an oil change, RV wash, and a tire pressure check last week in South Dakota.  (Altitude about 4,000 feet and temps in low 90s that day.)  In the...

    Got my new electric bike!

    Some time ago I posted asking for information on motor scooters. By the end of the conversation, I have decided to buy an electric bike but was working on the rack to use. I am turning 70 next month and have been a lifelong bike rider, but my stamina is less and my knees are getting sore at the...

    Removing hard water deposits on outside painted side walls with gel coat

    My motorhome has a "gravity" fill water intake for the tanks.  Because this always creates a mess and the water does not fill without a lot of splashing and running back out, I have hard water deposits on the outside of my motorhome.  I have a 2012 Fleetwood Tioga Ranger with the optional paint...

    Internet access while traveling in Canada

    I have a Verizon wireless hotspot, but if I go into Canada the roaming charges are similar to those of cell phones--absolutely outrageous.  I think it worked out to something like $250 Canadian for 10 megabytes of data.  I work part-time while on the road and need to be online about 2-3 hours...

    Strange electrical motor running under my bed. Is it a converter??

    I left my rig parked for four days last week, operating under battery power with my two furnaces running on low to prevent freezing.  When I drove off to my next site, I noticed that evening that there was a motor of some sort running under my bed in a sealed compartment where i can't get to it...
