    Tink & Chuck: Going in for my first surgery since going full time and I'm kinda worried about coming home to the fifth wheel after being released. Prior to this, I would not have to worry navigating the stairs every day.
    Any suggestions?

      MarkNTeri Wish you success on your surgery.  You got some good suggestions here.  I have a gal in my park, Hidden Valley RV, San Antonio area, who has MS- mostly affecting her legs.  They got these special stairs for their RV, aftermarket, but made f...  more

      Tink & Chuck MarkznTeri, thank you. I will definitely check that out as this is surgery 1 out of a possible 3 by the end of the year.

      Tink & Chuck Thank you to everyone for the suggestions and well wishes. The butt slide will probably come in handy the most as I try to navigate the 3 steps up to the bedroom and bathroom once I venture to the living room and kitchen. Also, my husband spent the wee...  more

    Lindsay Amy & Chase's Adventures with Mable : Don’t know what Group I should post this in, so if not this Group, then which Group?
    Just bought a 2011 CRV for 4 down tow car. Some suggest after towing and then disconnecting that you let the engine run for 3-5 minutes. We did not see that in the car ma...  more

      Ray Zimmermann I tow a 2014 CRV and have never heard of doing that, I'm sure it wouldn't hurt anything to do so.  My manual says to let in run 3 minutes in neutral before towing, I would guess you do this to.

      Marilyn & Grant We flat tow a 2014 CRV and when we stop for fuel in our MH we start the car & let it run for 3/5 minutes, do the same when we unhook. We were told by Honda to do so. We also have to remove a fuse to toe but we had that changed so we didn’t have to do that...  more

      Greg & Toni I tow a 2011 CRV 4 down.  The manual says to shift it thru all gears, then come back to D for 5 sec then put in N for 3 minutes, then turn off, leaving it in N.  I let mine run for 5 min in N.  Nothing about doing anything when you are done...  more

    Nessa : How about a permission slip to park in parking lots of businesses?
  • Eric and Kathy
    Eric and Kathy: This is why overnight parking at Walmart may be a thing of the past. Observed these towables in a Maine store lot at about 10 AM. When is checkout anyway? Many of them are unhitched with stabilizers deployed, slides open, a generator in use, and even a...  more

    Judy and John: What were the campground facilities like for RV in Monument Valley? Dry camping or some hook ups available?

      Ron & Ina Johnson Two years ago we stayed at nearby Goldings campground.  Full hookups and nice facilities, but expensive (then at least $50/da + a per person charge).  If you can boondock, stay in the nearby Valley of the Gods BLM area - many square miles of&nbs...  more

      Ray Zimmermann When we were there two years ago, Gouldings was the only full hookup park convenient to Monument Valley. There was a park next to the View Hotel inside the Tribal Park which at that time was dry camping only.

      Michael and Michelle Do you recommend Allstays for locating overnight stays or long term or both?  Thinking about it when we start traveling.

    Nessa : Have you ever looked at RVs make in Australia? they are so light and bright!
    That is one thing I do not like about my TT. It is so dark. And the outlet covers are black. I can't see them! I was looking at replacing the outlets in the TT with white ...  more

      Hank & Shirleen The Baseball Hall of Fame is on our list, but we DO NOT recommend the pro football hall of shame! Period!

      Eric and Kathy We just took NY 104 from Niagara Falls, working our way through Rome to NY 8 and Crown Point bridge to Vermont. 104 is terrific, but 8 can get a little hilly and twisty. We did just fine with 30 foot TT. Or stay on 104 to Thousand Islands region. Safe Trip.
