    Thu at 8:34 PMDoes anyone have any ideas on whether to stay on Vancouver Island in an RV park or stay inland & just drive to the island in a vehicle to tour around? And any recommendations on RV parks in either area?

        Wayne & Karen Dyck Thu at 10:44 PM Which ferry terminal is that rate for? Tsawwassen to Swartz Bay is only 57.50 up to 20ft and 6.50/ft after :)

      Wayne & Karen Dyck Thu at 10:35 PM BC Ferries were only charging for 2/3 of your total length the last few summers for RV’s. Not sure if they are still doing it. Check out their website and maybe contact them to see if the offer is going to be available this summer.

      Chad Hardy Thu at 2:47 PM I meant to get it posted on here earlier, but it slipped my mind.  This festival happens every year on the last Saturday of April.  This year looks to be one of the largest and most diverse in almost a decade. I am really excited.

      Carl Watson 15 hours ago We are up in Dumas now, but we lived in San Angelo for several years and we love Ballinger. It has that great small Texas town charm that people really enjoy. Best of luck with all your events.

      Mike and Donna Wagner Thu at 10:05 AM Yes, you should definitely notice a big difference in the ride and the handling.  They should not lose air so you must have a leak somewhere in the system. ~Donna
    • smithpv
      Bruce & Linda (Omnibus) Thu at 10:38 AM By “air bags” I presume you are referring to “air springs.”  If so, those are your suspension system (along with shock absorbers), or at least part of your suspension system.  ~Bruce
    • smithpv
      TeamFoxy Thu at 12:40 PM The air bags should not loose much pressure overnight, but may loose a little over the course of a week or longer. How much pressure to use is a matter of loading and how the ride feels to you. If the coach has a little more weight on one side it is perfe...  more

        Bruce & Linda (Omnibus) Thu at 1:37 PM What has me a bit confused here is that, except for “load assist air springs” used in conjunction with steel coil springs on pickup trucks, any motorhome that has an air-spring suspension probably also has automatic ride-height valves that control the pre...  more

    Wed at 8:37 AMSetting out for a trip to the Ozarks, but there is a weather advisory. Apparently, a large storm is headed for our goal (Mountain View Ark). They say there is a good possibility of large hail and possible tornados. Should we delay to avoid the storm?
