RE: No Shore power in Roadtrek

If it has an inverter, check to see if the breaker on it has tripped.

RE: Tracker value

That price is way to high. I sold my 1994 Tracker a couple years ago for $3000 with the base plate. I towed it for one year before I sold it. Mine had a 3 speed automatic with no overdrive, so I could only highway cruise at about 55 to 60 mph because of high rpm's. I was slower than the trucks on the interstate. I bought a 4-door 2005 Grand Vitara for about $4500. It is an automatic with overdrive so highway cruising is not a problem. It has all the power options including cold ac. It is a much more comfortable driving vehicle than the Tracker ever was. Take the previous posters advice and look for a Grand Vitara as you will be much happier.

RE: Getting ready to head North.

We departed Arizona a few days ago heading back to WA. We stayed overnight in a Love's truck stop the 1st night. We parked way at the back out of the way of truckers. The 2nd night we stayed in a casino parking lot with about a half dozen other rv's. The casino was closed so we had the lot all to ourselves.

RE: This could be a problem

I kind of expected an increase in rv sales because people aren't going to want to fly or stay in motels.

RE: Anyone traveling yet

We left Arizona a few days ago going north through Nevada, Idaho, Oregon, and WA. All rest areas were open that we saw on our route. We stayed at truck stops, and a casino parking lot(it was closed) with several other rv's spending the night. We also spent the night in a mall parking lot in WA for a couple of days visiting family. Police car waved as he drove through the parking lot. We saw quite a few cars on the road while traveling, but there were lots of RV's traveling also.

RE: Trapped?

We usually stay in AZ until the temps hit 100 degrees. This year is no different. It's now 100+ so we will be heading to WA in a few days. Looking forward to the low price of diesel.

RE: Under cabinet coffee maker?

Our Isata came with a B&D under cabinet model. We make it a little on the strong side and then add creamer to suit our taste. I will say that our Allegro came with the same coffee maker but it started leaking so we just replaced it with a counter top model. It has rubber feet and does not move going down the road.

RE: Drive train failures, tire failures. Warranty vs None

When we bought the Allegro Bus I purchased an extended warranty. Mainly because I don't know that much about diesels and there were limited service records available. I'm glad that I did because in the first 6 months both fuel pumps started leaking and were replaced under warranty. The bill was over $3000 and they paid all except my $500 deductible. Two years later the side by side fridge quit working. The warranty paid for a new cooling unit which was around $1800.00 installed. Again, I only paid the $500 deductible. Both times the warranty company didn't try to deny any part of the repairs or installation. With that said, the warranty cost me $5000 up front and the covered repairs were about $5000, so I broke even. Now that I know more about diesels and servicing maintaining them properly, I wouldn't purchase the extended warranty. I have a separate account for repairs which so far, I haven't needed to use.

RE: Is anyone going anywhere?

We will be leaving AZ in about 10 days and heading to our home in WA. We have plenty of food in our motorhome so will not need to shop anywhere on our way home. We have a full 150 gallon fuel tank so will only need to fill up once or twice at a truck stop on the way home and I will be wearing disposable gloves for that. We plan on staying in roadside pullouts, BLM land, etc, so won't be needing rv parks or campgrounds. I'd say we will be plenty isolated from contact with other people. Have a nice and safe trip Thank-you...We are looking forward to light traffic and low diesel prices.

RE: Plamosa Rd.\ Bouse

We drove through Quartzsite and Plamosa yesterday. Not much going on in town. The rv parks had plenty of empty spaces and Plamosa had maybe a dozen rv's that I could see from the highway. There may have been more that couldn't be seen from the road.

RE: Adding a Toy Hauler Extension

ball park, what's the cost of an extension? does it reuse the rear door? I currently have cargo doors and want a rear door. I could also use 12" more at the rear. The cost for my 24" extension is about $3800. That includes installation using my original ramp door. I'm guessing that you would need to find a ramp door to fit your opening if you want to get rid of the cargo doors. Bryan could provide exact details on the door situation as he is the original designer.

RE: Some ATV rules Help

I live in Tucson and have a plate for legal riding on pavement. I have been stopped and checked for the off road permit - twice. Dirt bikes, ATVs, side by sides need it. Jeeps do not. Doesn't make a lot of sense but a lot of laws are stupid. Thank-you for confirming what I have been saying for 3 pages. Out of state OHV's need the permit to be legal. AZ stated that they wanted non residents to help pay for trail maintenance.

RE: Wisconsin Campgrounds

Same here in Arizona, although they limit the number of campsites that are available. I'm guessing they only allow every other campsite to be occupied from what I read in the newspaper.

RE: Some ATV rules Help

Yes, I ride all winter in Arizona. When I purchased the OHV decal, no one asked me if I had an out of state plate(which I have). The state law that I quoted earlier doesn't mention anything about a plate. If you guys are correct then I wasted $25 for nothing. I won't do that next year.

RE: Some ATV rules Help

Our rzr is licensed for on road/off road in WA. For several years Arizona has reciprocated other state ohv licenses, but in 2019 they passed a law that all non-residents had to buy an ohv decal for $25 to be legal in AZ. That is for street or desert riding. Just a correction ~ (That is for street or desert riding) NO!! If your already plated say in CA you do not need to buy a ovh decal https://azstateparks.com/ohv-registration ------------------------------------------------------------------- From what I read, it looks to me like out of state residents need to purchase a non-resident decal regardless if the ATV is licensed in other states, or not. Non-Resident Riders Nonresident OHV Decal As of Sept. 1, 2019, the state of Arizona requires nonresidents wanting to operate their OHV within the state to purchase a nonresident OHV decal. The decal must be purchased prior to riding an OHV within the state. If your plated No. Key word ~ (their OHV) = What is an OHV, or Off-Highway Vehicle? An off-highway vehicle (OHV) is a type of vehicle designed specifically for off-road use. Some can be driven on the road, but the vast majority of drivers reserve their OHVs for recreating in places that regular vehicles cannot go. Going Where Most Vehicles Cannot According to AZ law that I quoted above, a non-resident must purchase an OHV decal to ride off road. Nowhere does it say having an out of state plate exempts the OHV from requiring this decal. You have not shown me otherwise.

RE: Places near Vegas Or Needles Ca ?

“We will be heading back to WA state soon also.” Gee, hotjag, is this necessary travel? Since WA is where our home is, I'd say it is necessary travel.

RE: We're using the TT's fridge as a "semi-lifeboat"

We keep our motorhome stocked and ready to go also, but the nice surprise was when I looked in the bathroom, there were 12 rolls of TP that have been in there for 3 months. We didn't have to worry about the empty store shelves.
