RE: New RVer with some diesel fuel issues.

You stated you have a 2005 Meridian 39f. You didn't say which engine you have. My Meridian 39K has a Cat. It has the fuel filter/water separator in the rear compartment where you can check the oil and water level. It has another fuel filter located on the engine, passenger side, towards the front of the engine, under the intake manifold. All these directions reference sitting in the drivers seat facing forward. Now the fun. To access the fuel filter on the engine, you must remove the steps at the foot of the bed. There are 4 screws holding the cover/steps in place. Once the steps are removed you can locate the secondary filter. I installed the Cat mechanical priming pump when I first changed my secondary fuel filter. If your motor is a Cat, call Cat with your engine serial number and they can provide you with the proper fuel filter.

RE: What is typical width of class A with side slides both open?

I wanted to be able to open my storage compartments when it is inside. I went 20' wide. Yes is costs a little more but the convenience is worth the extra cost.

RE: Yosemite

If you want to stay at Mono Vista in Lee Vining, be aware they DO NOT ACCEPT CREDIT CARDS. You will need to send a check in the mail. Call them to make your reservations and inquire how to accomplish reservation payment and final payment.

RE: Best route towing 29' to Isabella lake. 5 or 14 to 178.

Fuel in Mojave. Prices at the lake are high. Check you gas buddy app for current prices. You know your range in miles.

RE: Best route towing 29' to Isabella lake. 5 or 14 to 178.

I think it depends on your comfort level. I have driven 178 for almost 50 years and have seen semis with 45 foot trailers. You will be on lane next to the canyon wall and there are rock overhangs. Some are painted because they have caused trouble in the past. I have seen awnings laying on the roadside from hitting the wall. I towed my 38 foot fifth wheel behind a crew cab dually and had no trouble. If you are doubtful, the 14 to 178 is a much nicer road. It is a long steady pull from the 178/14 junction to the top of Walker Pass. You will come into the lake area and turn right on Sierra Way to go through Kernville.

RE: Rig for two couples?

RVs are great for six people for drinks, four people for dinner and two people for sleeping. Yes, an occasional guest or couple will work but the key word here is occasional.

RE: Rt 99 Thru Bakersfield

CA Traveler...I've taken that same route E/W through Bakersfield many times. I read somewhere on this forum about an alternate to 46 between I-5 and 99. I took it a couple years ago and it was a breeze, much less populated, less traffic. I think it might be 7th Standard Rd. I can't remember. Does anyone here know? The road from I5 to 99 is named Lerdo Highway. You go through Shafter but avoid the bad part of 99.

RE: potty without the rv

Which ever way you choose to go, when you are finished, I hope it is all behind you.

RE: why only one page of posts?

I find the software used here to be cumbersome. I find vBulletin much easier to use and has many many more features. Perhaps the Admin could look into a conversion.

RE: California Non-commercial class A license ***New question***

Five years ago I received a Class A non commercial license in California. I had an RV endorsement on my Class B so was grandfathered in when my license was issued. I hit the magic age when a driver is required to take the written tests for renewal. I took all six of the tests including the combination vehicle test which allows a driver to pull a fifth wheel over 15,000 lbs but less than 18,000 lbs. Long story short, when my new license came it is a Class B commercial with the restriction 41. That means I can tow a fifth wheel that weighs more than 10,000 lbs. but less than 15,000 lbs. DMV tells me since I had not taken a driving test with the 18,000 lb. fifth wheel, I will have to drive to qualify for the license. I had the 18,000 lb. fifth wheel for three years. Now to answer your question. The DMV rep in Sacramento told me the only way I could be legal is to have someone with a Class A drive the truck with the fifth wheel trailer to the approved test sight. The only other way is to go to a driving school and get a regular Class A. I was told the examiner at DMV will ask for the person who drove the vehicle to the test sight. Stay legal, phone a friend to drive your rig. Pass the test and enjoy your status - Non commercial Class A.
