RE: Brakes, dilemma.

Just to clarify things, I had all new brakes, from the backing plates out, installed at a local RV repair place. I've ordered a new DC current tester to check everything out. Just don't want the same thing happening to the new brakes.

Brakes, dilemma.

I just had to have all new brakes put on my trailer at about 13K miles. 3 of the 4 were metal to metal. Usually run the controller 5/6. Has anyone heard of a brake test using a compass? It says with the brakeaway pin in (no voltage to electromagnets) put a compass up to the hubs. Compass should point north. Pull the pin and compass should point to the brakes. Well, With the pin in, I have 3 that the compass is pointing to the brakes! For the heck of it, I ordered a new breakaway switch. What else could possibly be an issue?

RE: cold temps and water heater?

Not using it now but will end of next month. Forcast shows lows coming up to around 35 in the next few days. May just turn it on for a few days.

cold temps and water heater?

How cold and for how long before you think about draining your water heater? Been having temps in low 20's from sundown to sun up and getting concerned.

Equa-flex suspension?

I'm having the hardest time getting grease to go in. Any tips how to grease those fittings? Shackles take grease ok.

RE: Needles to Quartzsite?

As mentioned, the CA is faster with far less distractions. It's also boring with very limited services. The only real slowdown is if there's an accident or you find yourself behind some slow RVer. The AZ side is scenic but with that scenic comes more traffic and a heck of a lot more sightseers. You can often find yourself slowing down as someone ahead is creeping along to try and take a picture from their window or lost. On the four lane places it's not a big deal but on the two lane sections, it gets frustrating. Traffic lights are spaced far enough apart that in the areas with them, you either have them all in a row (think passing trough a touristy area of town) or they are so far apart, it can be many miles before you hit some single signal at a intersection leading to another touristy area. The good part about AZ side is you have services. You have restaurants, service stations, RV campgrounds, shops, and enough company on the road that you wont feel alone. One often overlooked item of the CA side is you have the option to bypass the whole Havasu and upper Parker area (which are the spots with the most tourist initiated issues for an RVer) by jumping east on CA-62 in Vidal and taking an easy ride into the Q. So how is CA 62?

Needles to Quartzsite?

I'm trying to decide which route. 40 to Az 95 down thru Havasu City or US 95 down to Blythe. Looks like only about 20 miles further on Az 95. Opinions???

RE: Quartzite?

I've never been there myself. Where's the best place to camp to be close to the show?

RE: Lake Tahoe to Petaluma, CA

How is it to take 89 to 88? Thanks, Janet That would take you way out of your way. US50 to 80 to 37 would be your best bet. Done that many times with 36 ft. toy hauler.
