RE: Closure Threads

Most state RV parks in Arizona remain open. Visitors centers and group sites are mostly closed. From the few parks that are closed it would appear it's related to type of park. The ones where sites are very close to each other are closed. Those that are spread out far apart remain open. Developed forest service campgrounds are closed. Dispersed camping is open.

RE: Leaving out of Gold Canyon, Which way to Flagstaff?

Ellsworth to Bush Highway to 87. Turn at Clints well onto state route 3 (Lake Mary Rd) to Flagstaff. There is an 11 mile grade heading into Payson. It is 4 lane, divided. From Payson to Pine/Strawberry there are a few shorter grades but aren't bad. After that it's fairly flat to Flagstaff. Very scenic drive. Check weather. Snow is forecast today and later in the week. During day time hours it probably will be to warm to stick on the roads.

RE: Win 7 Question

I know the issue very well. In the industrial world its common to create custom hardware and software. This can take years and 1000's of hours of labor. Each time Microsoft comes out with a new version of Windows it has HUGE compatibility issues. MS changes major technologies calling them improvements. Backwards compatibility is unimportant to MS. The average person at a business or at home doesn't understand. They run mostly off the shelf software that either runs fine or is inexpensive to upgrade. I still have some software that requires XP. It uses MS Java libraries which MS removed from Windows 7/10. I haven't had the time to completely rewrite it for .NET. A major costly project.

RE: The Coronavirus

Did anyone change their camping plans in 2009 during H1N1 outbreak? Millions infected, a few 100,000 deaths worldwide. Nuff said, I'm going RV'ing and turning off the news and media!

RE: Sedona AZ help with RV park suggestions

Rio Verde RV park in Cottonwood/Clarkdale is small but very nice. Verde Ranch RV Resort in Camp Verde is new, large and very nice. Don't confuse with nearby resorts with similar names (Verde River RV, Rancho Verde RV) Distant Drums RV in Camp Verde is nice. A few spots are tight to get into.

RE: Quartzsite show

Seriously? Really? Where did I ever say that "everyone should enjoy it"? :C Your comments seemed to take offense at anyone posting reasons they didn't like the Q show. My point was both positive and negative comments are equally valuable to someone who has never been.

RE: GM wants to improve trailer brakes

If your counting on the RV industry to set the standard for quality control you are mistaken The same issue exists if GM made brakes and other components for RV's. Automobiles have far higher regulations to meet than RV's. If GM made parts for RV's they would drop quality for the same reason RV manufacturers do. Cost and lack of regulations requiring them to do otherwise. That and the fact that RV buyers demand lower cost.

RE: what do you think about hybrid Mitsubishi

With a name of Timmy Lander, resident of the US, it doesn't seem likely but I could be wrong. There are many places you can be in the USA that speak foreign languages. Such as Boston where Crawn means Crayon, Sofer means Sofa, Kah means Car.

RE: Just sold the hybrid after 10 years.

We had a 2004 Starcraft 21SSO. Loved it! Used it heavily for 10 years. Lots of dry camping in remote mountain areas. We're older and wanted a bedroom too. Traded it in for a small fifth wheel and love it! The 21SSO was a great trailer, lots of memories but the fifth suits fits our needs as we get older.

RE: 5th wheel tires

There are now 8 pages for this topic. About the same for every tire topic. I'm late but if it helps the answer is Yes, fifth wheels need tires.

RE: Can't get on internet with wife's computer

Use System Restore to roll back the windows registry to before you had problems. For me this is always step #1. It can often remove any malware in the process. If it then seems to work fine run MalwareBytes.

RE: Phoenix to ALBQ to CO Springs to Leadville CO (at capacity)

Do you need to go thru Colorado Springs? I've gone thru Flagstaff, 160, 191 thru Moab, I-70 thru Grand Junction and on to Leadville. Don't recall any difficult areas.

RE: AZ recommendations

While in the area we drove thru Dead Horse Ranch. Nice, clean camp grounds. There are two areas. Northeast Loop had nice wide spots, easy to get big rigs in most. It is more open but has fewer trees. Quail Loop had more shade but many of the spots were small and cramped. If we ever stay at Dead Horse we'd opt for the Northeast loop section.

RE: Rv systems warranty?

I have XtraRide extended warranty on my 5th wheel. They've been excellent to work with. Covered every claim I've made with no hassle. They've worked with 3rd party RV shops so no need to go to dealer.

RE: AZ recommendations

Verde Ranch RV in Camp Verde is very nice. Excellent club house, nice wide spots. Lots of pull thrus. Don't confuse this with the nearby Verde Valley RV. Distant Drums is very nice but some spots are difficult to back into. Rain Spirit RV resort in Clarkdale is small but very nice. Wide spots easy to back into.

RE: GM wants to improve trailer brakes

As far as Im aware GM doesn't make brakes nor trailers. I'll leave both to the experts who do.

RE: Question about PC's..

How old is your existing PC and whats wrong with it? If it's just Windows thats corrupted then find a neighbors whiz IT kid to reinstall, good as new. For a new PC buy without. If someday you need to install something off a CD then buy a cheap USB CD drive off Amazon.

RE: Can you get a decent browser on Windows XP?

Sure. Yes. You're right! There's OS/2 out there! But show me ONE corporation that says "Oh, we're happy to be on XP in 2020! We're thrilled." No it's because they're stuck - they can't (or won't) recode. XP (like any operating system) still has a number of open holes. Exploits never closed, never fixed. If a company wants backwards compatibility, I'd pick UN*X over Winders in a heartbeat. Even some of the Motif apps I wrote in the early 90's still run on Linux. ;) Only reason not 'thrilled' is because of MS pretty much forcing Windows 10 whether you want it or not. Backwards compatibility has never been a strong part of MS products. They want their cash flow! There are tons of exploits in Windows 10 as well. Patches are released constantly just like prior OS's. Many of those are inherit to Windows 10, not XP. Hackers aren't targeting XP much I would assume!

RE: Can you get a decent browser on Windows XP?

Running XP is fine on machines behind corporate firewalls, watched over by IT experts, or for computer geeks who know what they're doing, but for the average Joe to do his banking and bill paying, not to mention surfing those "questionable" sites? Key to that is 'Know what you are doing'. I agree with that but the more they make Windows idiot proof the more difficult it is for those of us who do, to make it do what we want. Custom settings buried deep or removed completely etc. Windows 10 is more difficult from an IT standpoint than XP was for managing dozens of PC's. MS programs such as Office are clunky and buggy. Worse with each update. Younger IT staff won't know the difference though.

RE: Absolute positively the worst road ever

What did we do in the old days of paper maps, where the only hint that a road might be difficult (in a big rig) was the 'scenic route' coding? And National Forest color coding? I often stopped at a gas station in the area and asked. Worked most of the time but sometimes they'd reply "Keep on this road past the last stop light and turn left where the old schoolhouse used to be."
