RE: I-40 from East to Apache Junction

obgraham; you were correct in the shoulders are narrower or non existent but the rout is doable. Only problem we had was a bad semi accident just before Bush on one of the 6% grades that took an hour to clear. Thanks for the help.

RE: What is UPSN and how do you track it?

United Parcel Service United States. This link may help you. USPN is surepost, UPS picks up the package and delivers it to your local post office for them to deliver or in some instances just delivers it themselves. It will have 2 tracking numbers, one starts with ā€œ1zā€ for its time in the UPS system, and a longer one.. like 26 digits for its time with the post office.

RE: I-40 from East to Apache Junction

Thanks, we've come across from Havasu in the past so the traffic in Phoenix is not a problem.

I-40 from East to Apache Junction

I've done the trip, Phoenix to Holbrook through Payson and then up 260 to 377 to I-40 with a TT, and also through Flagstaff up I-17 with the TT and neither was a big problem. This time it is Winslow to Apache Junction in a 36 DP with a toad. There is no rush but I also do not want to be relying just on the brakes or engine brake coming down into Phoenix. My current debate is Holbrook, 377/260/87 and then 202 loop east to Apache Junction or go Winslow and then 87 all the way down to 202. Over to I-17 seems too much out of the way and from my memory I-40 is a sorry road needing repair. We will be actually coming from Meteor Crater RV Park. Are there any recommendations on the trip and why? Thanks

RE: Figuring Mileages

50 mph is good and I use RVPARKY along with Furkot. I put in the locations that me the route I want and it will spit out the distance and time in the s summary. Not that hitech but works for me. I don't use the phone apps for planning but just for search near where we stop.

RE: Class As in cold weather?

We use our non-Aquahot DP all the time and do not have problems without strip heaters in the AC units and only have one furnace. But we are only 36' long.

RE: Florida to Arizona Trip

We are doing the reverse in October and will take 8 stops. Apache Junction to Spring Hill. Two will be multi day ones and seldom go over 300 miles per day. Two at 370 and 2 at 340 this time.

RE: us 65 south from branson

Thanks for the quick replies. Just left the Amish country in SE Ohio and the hills were not a problem but the very narrow roads, no edge or center lines and very little visibility around the curves kept me well below the limit. The locals were not happy but that is what it is. The way out of the Amish we stayed on some better truck routes and all is good. We are not in a hurry and will then be spending 6 months at a snowbird site. Thanks for the info and enjoy the lifestyle.

us 65 south from branson

Going from Branson to Tampa and was thinking us 65 south from branson to I40 but not wanting narrow roads in a 36' DP with toad. I'm open to suggestions.

RE: Can I use any 50 amp extension cord?

Please be sure it is a RV 50 amp service and not for a welder/dryer/etc which will probably fry your coach.

RE: Slide toppers

Stone Vos in Brooksville, FL is the best and reliable source.

RE: DO I need REALLY GOOD house batteries if i NEVER boondock ?

If you don't boondock, we never do, is to have the charge in the house batteries to start the generator. Without the batteries being good enough the Onan will not start and stay running. Happened to me two years ago.

RE: Cost of RVing

There is a JD Power article from 2017 that shows these costs. Most of the article that refers to the $30/night also only refer to Camping World and their input to the RV world. Interesting read but not today's reality.

RE: Monaco R4R Brake Rotors

We do know that it is a Rail chassis and is a R4R. That is already know. I was looking for the help you have given. Hoses are not a problem as other parts will be replaced or rebuilt but which rotors was the problem area. Thanks for the help.

Monaco R4R Brake Rotors

My Neptune has had the right front brake lock up a couple times and my mechanic has found blackened spots on the rotors. They do not appear out of round and did not pulse when stopping. He wants to replace them, I agree, but we don't know where to look. I've searched the internet and all literature I have and don't see much on the hydraulic brakes. Is there a source for the rotors or a supplier that would help or whatever. This is on a 2003 Neptune 300ISB 36foot. The coach only has 64,000 miles and I have had it for only 4 years. It seems to have been taken care of but all that is unknown. Thanks for whatever help I can get.

RE: dinging towing

I closed my subscription and they sent me a check for the remainder of the time. I agree with your assessment. It is not for motor homes.

RE: New Serpentine Belt?

I'm going to see if the labeling is still on the belt. Need to get into the closet to get access as this is a rear radiator. If not then will have it changed at next service. To some who suggested the results of a pickup truck, this is different in a rear radiator as there is no hood, easy access or ability to work easily. You need to stand on your head in a closet or be under the engine reaching up. Not being sarcastic but just realistic.

New Serpentine Belt?

With some long trips, 6500 miles, coming up and all the posts regarding serpentine belts I think I should have a spare with me. I already keep tires less than 5 years, TMPS, Silverleaf for data, fluid changes and test regularly have roadside assistance in case of emergency, and keep extra filters with me but have no idea what size belt to get. Is it better to measure the one on the coach or to ask Cummins what is needed. 2003 Neptune ISB300, 36' Thanks for for the help.
