RE: OK to TN

Jane, it's going to take you a little while to get to East TN staying two days at each place as you are 1,000 miles away. But, that's OK. :) I'll list a few parks along the way that we have stayed in many times. I go from TN to CA quite often from Memphis, TN. Mustang Run just west of Oklahoma City is very nice and just right off of the interstate. But, thats only 112 miles from Elk City. Ivy's Cove in Russellville, AR. It's also right off of I-40. Do not stay........KOA North... Little Rock, AR. Warning..... IT IS NOT BIG RIG FRIENDLY! Tom Sawyer RV Park, West Memphis, AR. (Memphis, TN). Nice park on the Mississippi River. The neighborhood getting there is a little sketchy but once you get there, it's very nice. Parker's Crossroad RV Park, Yuma, TN (Lexington, TN) exit 108. Nice campground. Nashville area.... KOA, Music Vally Dr., expensive but near a lot of entertainment and restaurants. KOA, Lebannon, TN, on the east side of Nashville, its a good stop but always full. On Music Valley Dr., there is a Yogi Bear RV Park and Two Rivers campground. Crossville, TN, KOA is nice but the whole parks slants.... couldn't get completely level but nice concrete pads. Crossville, TN, Spring Lake RV resort is very nice too. Kingston, TN, Soaring Eagle is a nice stop, just stayed there recently on the way back from NC. Some of these parks may not be the perfect stop 'time or mileage' -wise, but I've been to them and would return again. Good luck, safe travels, MM.

RE: Full Time For Six Months

Ford V8 engine? I think mine has a Triton V-10. Maybe the confusion is that Winnebago built this 2020 Intent on a 2019 Ford F-53 chassis. That caused some confusion for my insurance agent, too, when I gave them the VIN. Anyway, the motor gets the job done, but it struggles going uphill. As for posting about our travels, I'll try to put together a summary this week. I've been busy because we are traveling and when we get somewhere new we try to find some time to visit the surroundings so I haven't had a lot of free time this month. Hello Steve, Since I didn't know the particulars of a 2020 Winnebago Intent 30R, I looked it up. This ad said the 2020 Intent had the 7.3L V8. https://www.rvtrader.com/listing/2020-Winnebago-Intent-30R-5013371536 Safe travels and enjoy your new coach! Mark

DallasSteve, congratulations on you and your wife's new life retirement adventure! I know some of the folks here would want to hear about that new Ford V8 engine too! Safe travels, MM.

RE: Are class A resorts just as filled up as other RV parks?

RE: Honda CRV weights

Towed a 2007 and a 2013 CR-V's, both AWD. I always thought they were 3,400 lbs. (Motorhome magazine says 3,400 lbs. for the '07 and 3,426 for the '13) Very easy vehicles to tow and I used Blue Ox equipment. I had the M&G supplemental braking on the '07 and the Air Force One on the '13. Good luck on your search! MM.

RE: Are class A resorts just as filled up as other RV parks?

I spent two weeks at the Mountain Falls RV Resort in Lake Toxaway, NC, at the end of August. No problem with reservations at that time. I certainly love that part of the country. The elevation in Lake Toxaway is good for summer travel as it's 3,100 ft. and Highlands, NC, just up the road is at 4,100 ft. so it can be low to mid 80's during the day and fall to low 60's at night. I'm trying to get back for the Fall leaf-change and they are booked at the moment (on their website). I'll check again with a phone call as it gets closer. I, too, like the higher end resorts as a 'destination' point. And, this Resort is not bad at $103 a night for the regular site, the upper ridge area with the distance views are $130 which I did three weeks last year (one week in Aug, Sept and Oct.). I stayed at a KOA on the way there and back in Crossville, TN. ($49 a night). Personally, I have not found people at these 'Resort class-A only' parks to be snobs. I ride my bike through the parks for exercise and people wave/acknowledge as I pass by. They have no idea what coach I'm in. I like the fact that these parks are gated and have security. I'll head west to California late Fall for the winter and hope that the RV parks are not full. I might have to make a Walmart stop which I've never done before. In all the years passing through Denver, I have never been able to get a 'last minute' reservation. That place is always full! I've been able to find a place south or west of the city but not in town. Safe travels, MM.

RE: smoking diesel exhaust

Down home.... from personal experience I don't believe the power of the Volvo engine is inadequate. Certainly a fire can happen as there are a lot of components that could fail as with any coach. Newer Prevosts have a built-in fire suppression system in the engine compartment with a warning and controller at the driver area. The Volvo engine has 500 hp with 1,750 lb. ft of torque, not too shabby! The Detroit Diesel has 515-525 hp with 1,650 lb. ft. of torque. You cannot upgrade the engine in a Prevost. There is not enough room for a larger engine. Sounds like 'fire-side' chat. Safe travels, Mark

RE: smoking diesel exhaust

Our Cat has always done itit'saC7 and when you hit the throttle in goes more fuel. A diesel does not mix fuel and air and go through throttle blades. It breathe in as much air as it can handle all the time. Hit the throttle and lot more fuel and black smoke. Newer diesels don't have the response of the old because emissions dictated tuning. The Volvo engines are a good/worse example. Low and slow response and power throughout the range and mileage is worse and have lots of engie fires.. Tuners spew more at take off and hot rod diesel engines rely spew the smoke as cam and injector timing is increased and more fuel is sprayed in when you hit the throttle and really gets going when the turbo(s)spool up. When injector pumps go bad in diesels you will smell and possibly see gray smoke actually raw diesel and smell and raw diesel though the exhaust. haven't seen in my case any MHs spewing a lot of black smoke even with a tuner. The turbo could be getting bad...and not compressing enough air for the amount f fuel sprayed in would be the only thing I can think of at the moment. Hard to hear in a running diesel but a stethascope on the turbo might reveal bearing problems etc. Not cheap but what s on a diesel,a Cummins Dealer or other shop hooked up to the computer, unless yours is pure mechanical diesel, can sort it out pretty quick.I don't think I want to crawl around on our engine and side radiators probably still would have to go through the bed room.A Diesel mechanic knows his brad and others real well. "The Volvo engines are a good/worse example. Low and slow response and power throughout the range and mileage is worse and have lots of engie fires.." Having a Volvo engine I have never heard of what you have stated. Engine fires? We have amazing power at 56,000 lbs. I have not heard anything negative at the Prevost centers about the Volvo engine. Did I misunderstand your post? Safe travels, Mark
