RE: Pet Boarding when visiting Disneyland

Due to the overwhelming demand by guest at their lodgings who want pet boarding during their visit, Disney limited the pet boarding option to only guest at their lodging locations. If you were RV camping at Fort Wilderness, you can board you pet with Disney. Additionally, due to some baby-antic politics, licensing requirements for use by outsiders suddenly became an issue and more difficult so Disney just kept it for in-house lodging guest.

RE: Residency and voters rights in South Dakota

Never thought about it before, but where are full timers counted on the censes? Depending on how they get their mail, they may be counted at a regular address if they were using their own, a friend or relative's address. If their legal residing address was flagged as a mail drop. they didn't get any notification. Even when people were able to login to compete the form, if the address was flagged as a mail drop only, it didn't count for that state as a resident.

RE: Residency and voters rights in South Dakota

The question is why now? Because a local election pitted the small group of physically residing residents against another group that was made up of RV registered mail drop residents. The Judge did not take kindly to the failure of the election officials to challenge those non residing voter registrations since the law clearly states you can only vote if you swear you actually physically reside at that address. But when 2,500 registered voters names were given to the Judge all using the same little building as where they "reside", well you can imagine how well that went over. Of course the election officials weren't going to take the blame, they basically said the state legislature is more interested in the revenue from this scheme than election and voter integrity. That pretty much hung the hypocrite banner over the state. So as with every time this has been made public, a bill is introduced to deal with it. What is a bit different is this time a Judge actually got admission from people at one RV location to admit on the record they really don't live at the address, just came back to vote. This time the RV registration users were the one that turned the spotlight on themselves.

RE: Replacing AC; can a 15k btu go where a 13.5k btu used to be?

The rooftop unit may differ in sizes based on manufacture or profile. As ktmrfs said, the roof opening is universal at 14" X 14".

RE: Lake Mead should show some increase in level.

The CA rains will do little for Lake Mead. At best, it will send a very small amount into the Lower Colorado River Basin most likely south of Laughlin.

RE: Time to Paint the RV - Who's good at it ?

Navarro's Paint & Body shop in Algodones Mexico. Not far from the Yuma crossing. Just be prepared to wait for an available opening, they tend to book up way in advance.

RE: Winnebago View

From a WB View owner I know, the main problem with these streamline RV's is people drive them like their mamma's mini-van.

RE: Valve stem extension

I believe the recall was due to the (more decorative versus strong) valve stem extensions not being properly supported causing them to hit the wheel. This could result in the stem being sheered off and a sudden loss of air in the tire. For whatever reason, it was easier to remove the extension completely instead of adding new stronger extensions with the proper support to prevent contact with the wheel. Since millions of vehicles have extensions without issues, you may just want to head over to a truck store and buy a set of adequate valve extensions with decent supports and install it yourself.

RE: Looking for 1994 generator part: Onan 166-0779 Ignition Coil

Yes. No stock per a comment below there. Thanks! I have learned to never go solely by other's comments as stock levels can change daily or their comment could be from years ago. I would recommend calling them to see if it's available. Having an older RV, I often come across "out of stock" online messages only to find they have 1 or 2 in stock when I called. Oftentimes, the message is generated when they stock falls below a certain level. You should also get to know your regional RV salvage yards as they are a great source for older parts.

RE: Propane feed question

It's possible that that "outlet" is actually a one way inlet used to attach a larger external extended stay tank with it's own regulator. Vapors will flow into the manifold from that port but vapors will not exit through that port. Just a possibility to check out.

RE: My generator may not be repairable, what do I do?

Regarding the replacement generator. Check to see if the "compartment" is an actual compartment or if the floor is nothing but the base (part of) the exiting generator. If so, check to see how much below the existing generator the new one will hang once you make your own bracket and shelf. Go examine the proposed generator and see how much height is taken up by the base and wheels. If mounting inside the RV, there's no need for the wheels and base to be attached. You can keep those as a platform for if or when you remove the generator and want to roll it around. Next remove the side covers and see what is above the working portion. Often the top is just an integrated handle and fuel tank. If the handles can be removed or eliminated, you may gain another inch or so. The fuel tank may also be removed or relocated within the compartment if you can find a way to ensure fuel delivery. You should be able to connect the generator to RV just like the previous generator without he need for added or outside cables. If you want to keep that replacement generator intact as is, a cargo carrier setup is very common. Just know you'll have to do some creative cabling if you plan on using it while in motion.

RE: New here & source for motor parts

Welcome to the joys of an older RV. As others have mentioned, the first thing is to determine the "chassis" of the RV. The chassis is the motor vehicle portion of the RV. Chassis parts are usually very common auto parts available at most auto parts stores or online retailers. One important fact is to make sure you know the actual year of the chassis as RV manufactures "RV" years may be a year or two past the chassis manufacture's year. It normally isn't that big deal unless (like mine) you're straddling a chassis change where the year (and month) is important as parts changed. Also if there are component differences (there were two transmission designs in my year each with slightly different parts) you need to know which you have in order to get the right parts. As for the "coach" portion of the RV, many of the major components are standard RV parts used across many manufactures or more universal that swapping isn't that big a deal. So a A/C may be the same used across dozens of RV makes and models from that period and not specific to yours alone. Many older RV owners do like using RockAuto simply because it allows you to focus on the parts category as well as see multiple options from cheap knock-offs to OEM parts. I avoid retailers on Ebay simply due to the abundance of counterfeit parts found repackaged into OEM boxes and sold as discounted genuine OEM parts. I also use a national retailer (Advance, Auto-Zone, NAPA, O'Reilly) as you can take the part into the store and have them match it up if there's a question as to if you are ordering the right part. I find they usually have many parts in stock or at least a day away in a warehouse. Of course, unlike RockAuto, your selection may be down to OEM, a couple brand names, or their own branded part. However, being able to have a hands on selection option sometimes saves the day. So, enjoy your mature RV.

RE: Winter Travel Phoenix, Az to Montrose, Co

Probably don't need to remind you but pay very close attention to the northern AZ weather forecast that time of the year. You don't want to be stuck in a standstill whiteout for hours, or travel embargoed because you need full chains, or on the news as another "trailer" blown over by the winds. I-40's bad weather can be a mean surprise that comes out of nowhere.

RE: Route 89A in utah

We've never done this one a class A 30 foot with toad. How is it...steep? which we have done just yesterday on 530 in Wyoming/191 in Utah. If you really meant 89A in Utah (the Utah to AZ border crossing route), it's flat as flat can be. Wide lanes and easy as you can get. Now 89A through the AZ mountains and highlands is another story.

RE: Medicare For Full Timers

The issue some have with these "any network provider" Medicare Advantage "nationwide" plans are in some parts of the country, there are too few providers let alone any specialist. Even when there are providers, the next available appointment for non in-state enrolled patient is a month or more out. Humana, like all "networked" Advantage plans is provider deserts, no provider within any reasonable travel distance. Yes, you may be able to go out of network in some cases and have a portion covered, but often they use the network requirement for coverage as an excuse to deny payment. I don't think is really a case of "gambling", more like a careful needed evaluation of risk vs rewards. For the rewards of saving substantial money, can you tolerate the risk of a possible no or denied coverage and expense?
