RE: Dually Valve Stems

We are Borg. Resistance is futile. These things are supposed to be the state of the art answer. I haven't tried them. these are great, installed on my class c in 2012.

RE: Overnighting on 6 HWY Neveda

Rachel is on hwy 375 many miles south of 6. Where 6 meets 360 west of 95 there are big pulloffs off of 6 and both sides of 360 where it meets 6. We have never stayed overnight just use as a stopping area to rest. I'm sure truckers spend nights there. Also at Montgomery Pass (west of 360) there is a big wide area at a old out of business motel on south side.

RE: Repair costs and frequency frustration

We went from a 30' class C with 2 slides to a 20' Pleasure Way Class B. Very bad mistake. Sold our Toad. Sold Pleasure Way, purchased 24V Class C Winnie no slide love it, purchased a new toad. Can either travel with or without toad, usually take toad. Before you make the mistake I did, rent a B for a trip. Dick

RE: Fresh water drain

usually basic things like that are covered in the owners manual. In all the motor homes we have owned the fresh water drain valve is near the water pump, can you find the water pump?

RE: Nevada 447

Most black hwys in NV are good. We did 447 a few years ago in a class B MH. Highway is nrrow in places. Below is my day log info. Day 1 - Thursday, September 1, 2011 On The Road Out of Fallon at 9:10 AM PDT heading West to Fernley then North on 447. Quite a bit of traffic on 447 due to Burning Man at Blackrock Desert, Once we got past Gerlach heading to Cedarville a lot less traffic. 447 is a shorter route, but you can’t make as good of time on it. 190 to Cedarville, four hours. Had lunch at Country Hearth Café/Bakery. We Stopped 14 miles S of Lakeview at Goose Lake OR SP site # 13 w/20 amp electric & water $20.00. This is a nice park, sites do not have lake view and showers are not the best.

RE: Wells, NV to Bishop, CA

Nevada black highways are great, take 93 to 6 & 6 on into Bishop. There is a 7000' pass on 6 prior dropping down into CA, but should not be a problem. Alternate you could take I-80 to 95 South to 360 W to 6 W, good highways. We have taken this 95, 360 & 6 route many times in our MH towing our toad.

RE: Sacramento to San Diego

If you want a scenic route take 50 E to 89 SE to 395 S to I-15 or 99 S to Lodi then hwy 12 cut over to 88 E to 395 S to I-15. If taking one of the routes you said from Bakersfield on hwy 58 till it meets 395 at four corners and 395 to I-15.

RE: Reno, NV to Fresno, CA route help please

To avoide Reno traffic you could take exit 48 or 46 at Fernley and then Alt 95 S to hwy 50 West into Carson City then 395 to SR88 or a new hwy that connects with 50 to carson city at exit 32 then 439 to 50. We have taken SR 88 to avoide Reno and Sacramento in our motorhome pulling our toad.

RE: Reno, NV to Fresno, CA route help please

. My only preferences are I would like to avoid very heavy traffic if possible and Vegas type heat. Travel south from Reno on I580/US395 to Mindan/Garnderville about 45 miles and then take SR 88 to Stockton and then south on SR 99 to Fresno. You will not be disappointed taking SR 88. Lots of scenery. Not a lot of traffic. X 2

RE: 2017 Honda CR-V flat towable?

If FWD it can be towed on a dolly. If AWD it can only be towed on a trailer! So yes it can be towed, but not with all 4 wheels on the ground. All the answers about 2014 as the last year 4 down towable are correct, I have a AWD 2013 and it towes great.

RE: Smaller Drivers seat

When I looked at buying a RV with a slide either Class C or A, I would always have the slide put in before sitting in the drivers seat. If I wasn't able to get comfortable in the drivers seat I didn't look any fruther.

RE: Best 2 Wheel Drive Automatic Trans Trucks to Flat Tow

Bassically you need to find a 4x4 with a transfer case that can be shiffted into netural manually not electronic. Most Chev & GMC's still had this when Ford went electronic.

RE: Best 2 Wheel Drive Automatic Trans Trucks to Flat Tow

I also had a drive line disconnet on a 2wd pickup and had problems with it and would never do again. Since then every car, suv or pu we have owned has been towable 4 down without modifications. I have checked and the 2019 ford ranger 4x4 is towable 4 down w/at.

RE: Towing 2019 Chevy Colorado 4-Down

Run 12v from RV to a dedicated cig lighter style plug in for your brake buddy plus what SidecarFlip says. Or run 12v direct from battery to dedicated cig lighter plug-in that will not be effected when neg terminal is disconnected.

RE: Tires LT 225/75R16 load range E

I agree, the tires I just replaced were 7 to 10 years old. Not sure where the 5 year rule came from.

RE: Tires LT 225/75R16 load range E

You might want to check out Toyo Open Country H/T LT225/75R-16 10 Ply E. I have replaced tires on two Winnies now with these and very happy with them, I have found the ride as good or better than Michelin. I also have gone with Borg "Dually Valves" on the rear duals. The tire store I use installs them with the new tires at no additional charge.
