RE: Slide-out issue

Thank you for your replies. Ken's post is over my head, but I get that y'all are saying it's probably the solenoid letting a bit of hydraulic fluid leak in or out. A few years ago, I had a solenoid changed because one jack was inching up over short amount of days after being extended to the ground. Sounds like a similar problem from your input.

Slide-out issue

Our motorhome has been parked on gravel beside our house for the last few months...hydraulic slides and jacks in and up. About a month ago, I happen to notice the large slide had moved out an inch or so, especially across the bottom. The other day, I noticed the small slide had done the same thing, maybe a couple inches. Of course, in both cases I went inside and pushed the button to bring the slides in all the way. Anyone know why this would happen? I don't see any fluid leak under the motorhome, nor around or under the solenoids or fluid reservoir. None of the jacks have come down at all. The hydraulic fluid in the reservoir is just a little low...down to the bottom of the dip stick, not up between the lines. But I can see the fluid's reflection looking down on it. Seems like there is still plenty in the box shaped reservoir. Thanks for any ideas.

RE: why do renewing members get a raw deal?

Good Sam is certainly not the only company that does this. Cable TV service is another good example. I don't like it either.

RE: AC on or off?

I do the same as Jerry. I leave toiletries and some canned and dry food in there all the time. I don't imagine extreme heat is good for the materials like plastic that RVs are made with. I've had some little rubber dots on the cabinet doors to melt. Also make sure a little water stays in your toilet bowl at all times to keep the seal moist. I've had to add some water every now and then due to evaporation.

RE: Happy With Android OS

I'm sort of the opposite. I've used Mac laptops for years and years, but never got an iPhone. Have always had Android cell phones. Don't plan on changing my ways in the future.

RE: recall

I don't have a Bounder, but you can look up recalls on this website. If you have or can get the VIN, enter it here: Recalls by VIN Otherwise I found this on the same website. Scroll down and click on the plus to expand each of the three recalls to read about them. Bounder Recalls

RE: 89A through Oak Creek Canyon to Sedona

DC...You must have come during spring break. Here spring break lasts SEVERAL weeks, like from mid-March to mid-April. The traffic IS insane. I can only go to the grocery store at 8am or 8pm, else I'd have an hour or more trip just to go 5 miles. The traffic is nowhere near as bad now...except on the weekends! And holidays! Can't wait for this coming Memorial Day weekend. Better get my groceries before Friday :) Definitely agree about the restaurant prices. It's not just HP, but nearly all the restaurants. We rarely go out to eat here.

RE: leaving the stick and brick for the summer

ferndaleflyer....Interesting take on things. I wouldn't want my house to flood even if the insurance pays for it. And if I left my house a/c at 73 for 3 months that I'm gone, I'd have a much higher electric bill than if I had stayed at home. Grit dog....That certainly would be a great practical joke! Hope we never forget the plastic wrap when we arrive back home and run into the house to go to the bathroom!

RE: Hemet, CA to Klamath River RV Park, CA

I guess you scrapped the idea of the GG bridge?? Yes, 20 all the way from I-5 to 101 is suitable to drive your RV. I just did that drive eastbound last October in my motorhome and tow car. As mentioned, you won't win any races. Kind of a moseying drive. If I recall correctly, the speed limits were 55mpg and 45mph. As described above, east of the lake you go through hills, so gentle curves and grades. But no problem at all. I am not familiar with any RV parks along 20, as we stayed at Robinson Rancheria Casino parking lot. There is a gas station across the road (south side) with (relatively) good prices and easy pull-through access. I stayed at Almond Tree Oasis a few years ago. New owners since then and of course, higher prices. It is an easy, convenient, and certainly sufficient overnight. There are few choices for hookup RV parks in the central section of I-5.

RE: leaving the stick and brick for the summer

I turn my water off too. Had an incident years back. I also turn off the circuit breaker of my electric water heater. No need to reheat the same water over and over again while I'm gone.

RE: leaving the stick and brick for the summer

86 also. Plus I lift up the toilet seat, put plastic wrap sealed very well over the toilet bowl, and put the seat and lid down. That water in the bowl will evaporate and could dry out your toilet if this is not done...which could cause problems. Don't ask me how I know.

RE: Hemet, CA to Klamath River RV Park, CA

Petaluma KOA, mentioned earlier in this thread, is north of the GG bridge. If you happen to be an Elks member, there is also an Elks club with RV parking in Petaluma. To avoid San Francisco, from I-5 you can take 580--680--780--80--37--Lakeville Hwy to Petaluma (also has been mentioned in this thread). Or you could stay on I-5 and take 12 across north of Stockton.

RE: Covid in RV Parks

Regardless if that guy had Covid or the flu, I think it is just plain inconsiderate to be knowingly spreading germs. I don't like to get sick, whatever it is! If I had the flu, I would certainly not be out socializing! The RV parks are just like the general public. Some take precautions and some act the same as pre-pandemic. I've been to RV park offices that had set up no contact check-in....and to some where I've gone into their small office with unmasked employee and several other unmasked RVers waiting to check in or just socializing. I also do everything I can to keep myself safe. You have to set your own boundaries. I've literally had to back up from some people who get what I consider too close to me to talk. My friend was in an RV park laundry room and she had to open a side-swinging dryer door just to get a guy to stay a distance from her.

RE: 30A Surge Protector Recommendations

I would spend the money and go for the better protection. That is the Progressive EMS-PT30X (or hardwired version) or the Surge Guard 34930. I had the Progressive unit for years and years. It saved me a few times. Last year, it finally died...while we were traveling. Picked up a lesser Surge Guard unit because it was all I could find in the small towns we were driving through. It was a POS! I wrote a nice complaint to Surge Guard. To my surprise, they sent me a new 34930 (the good unit!). Meanwhile I had purchased another Progressive EMS-PT30X online. But kudos to Surge Guard for their great customer service! Progressive has also had good customer service for years...don't know how it is lately. Just haven't had to deal with them. But they did replace the plug on my old one for free one time years ago.

RE: New Jersey to California

Carlsbad Caverns would be quite a long detour off your I-40 route. I prefer staying inside GCNP because sunrise and sunset times are beautiful on the canyon walls. Plus I'm on my own schedule. Must get campsite reservations. I agree, you won't enjoy driving RV in southern CA. Use this website to find interesting or quirky places along the way. Click on Maps and find your route in each State. Pass your mouse over all the pinpoints. Roadside America We found the Oklahoma City Memorial to be hauntingly beautiful (we only visited outside portion). Stop at Tucumcari, NM for some Route 66 kitsch.

RE: It's getting warm in Arizona...

Desert Captain...Reading your posts makes me feel reminiscent of our days gone by, when we had a small Class C and my spouse was more able-bodied, and didn't need supplemental oxygen. We used to frequently boondock or stay in USFS campgrounds (like Pinegrove) all over Coconino and Kaibab Nat'l Forests. Also plenty of camping in the White Mtns. Unfortunately we never made it to Big Lake, but did get to Greer. Now we go to the low elevation Coast with our bigger Class A and tow car to get out of the heat. A great option too. Just a little farther :) I enjoy reading your trip reports!

RE: Antelope Canyon

You must take a tour to see Antelope Slot Canyon. Prebook with one of these tour guides. It's a very busy tourist attraction. Tour Operators I wouldn't book with a third party. Upper AC involves a couple mile bumpy Jeep ride, then you walk straight into the canyon at sandy floor level. Used to be out and back, but they've now built a series of ramps and steps to exit up and around the canyon back to the vehicle. Lower AC involves a short walk, then you descend a long set of stairs down into the canyon. Exiting up through a crack to parking lot level. Lower involves just a bit more squeezing and scrambling through, but nothing a reasonably able person couldn't do. It's not really necessary to do both. You will be sufficiently awed by one. As far as I know, the only RV parks with hookups are Wahweap by Lake Powell and Page Lake Powell Campground in the town of Page. By the lake is nice, being in town will get you closer to other sites. There is also boondocking on the sandy beach (for a fee) at Lone Rock Beach. Better be careful there. You can do Horseshoe Bend Overlook on your own. It's free, but parking costs I think $10. The float trip down the river is a big hit. There is only one company authorized to do this. See here: Rafting If the Visitors Center and tour at Glen Canyon Dam ever open again, those are interesting. I don't know the status right now. I like the Dam Overlook off Scenic View Rd. Also Wahweap Overlook (especially at sunset) off Hwy 89 north of the dam. You say you are going in fall, but then you ask for best time of year. Huh? Fall is good!

RE: Jan-Feb-March in Mesa, AZ- few questions about heat sources

We were just down in that area in January through March. We ran our electric heat pump often because my spouse is always cold. Occasionally we ran the propane furnace. Our electric bill ran about $75/month. We didn't want to use up our propane because the delivery charge per gallon is quite a bit higher than driving over to the propane store. Don't really know which one would end up cheaper though.

RE: towing

I have friends who also did that years ago on a Toyota Matrix. They had nothing but problems.
