RE: Power cord

Check the water level in the battery frequently. Some say monthly, I usually did it every two weeks.

RE: Removing dinette from a Newmar Bay Star

In our 2014 Allegro Open Road, due to fabric disintegrating, Tiffin shipped us out a new dinette. It was up to us to find the labor. My son and I looked at it, and removed and installed the new new dinnette. ez peezy!! Just a few screws.

RE: Tiffin Allerro

We have a Allegro Open Road 36LA. The only major problem we had was that the dinette material started to disintegrate. Bad choice of materials were used. Took two phone calls to Tiffin to get someone with authority to offer a repair. Tiffin shipped us a whole new dinette in 2017. Was easy for my son and I to remove the old dinnette and install the new dinette. That really has been the only major issue. There have also been a recall for the tow hitch.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

First, private jet flying is a legitimate beef as far as climate change. Rockets, that is ill informed. The exhaust is just water vapor. Liquid oxygen mixed with liquid hydrogen, H2O. But when cooled to -300 degrees, creates an awesome explosion. Here is a fun Read: https://evannex.com/blogs/news/theyll-be-no-gas-in-the-gas-stations-of-the-future?utm_campaign=Tesla%27s%20Efficiency%20%2F%20New%3A%20Rear%20Reflector%20Trim%20%28JcX8CG%29&utm_medium=email&utm_source=All%20Contacts%20for%20Newsletter%20%28Main%20List%20%2B%20Abandoned%20Carts%29&_ke=eyJrbF9lbWFpbCI6ICJtaWtlakByZWhhYmFiaWxpdGllcy5jb20iLCAia2xfY29tcGFueV9pZCI6ICJmYjRibU0ifQ%3D%3D

RE: Tire cables or chains

We go skiing in Mammoth & Tahoe every year. Had to put chains on the Motorhome's 5 times over the past 30 years. Used link chains as they were the cheapest and never had to use them for more than 10 miles. Kept speed down to below 35 mph. YOU WILL GET WET!! I lay down on a blue tarp and wear ski pants. Not hard, but practice beforehand. It will be a rough ride.

RE: building new campground

There are numerous consultants by doing a Google search, it can be expensive for a consultant, but they will tell you if it is feasible. http://stavesconsulting.com/

RE: Emergency escape thoughts...

In 1995 saw a class A roll in Idaho. Driver fell asleep and over corrected when they hit the rumble strips. Multiple drivers stopped with rescue, we walked them out the front windshield as it had disintegrated. I was surprised no one was hurt from the falling cabinets.

RE: Leavenworth, WA recommendations?

When we are in the area, we stay down the road. https://wenatcheeriverpark.org/ Nearby is a good tour of the Applets & Cotlets factory.

RE: Help finding nightly parking for our caravan

When we owned a campground, we had a visit from a traveling zoo and several people with horses. They called ahead, and we made sure we had enough room available for them. Never a problem.

RE: Do we or don't we?

I recommend that you sit down with a financial planner to help your sort through all of this. I agree that working until you are at least 66 would be the best thing for you. Ask, around for suggestions for a financial planner, or I have had pretty good luck with Charles Schwab. As far as investments/savings, you need to sock away 20% of your income into Index funds. I like Vanguard 500 Index fund or Schwab 500 Index funds.

RE: Our good friends got a new Cedar Creek...

I would recommend you not hire a lawyer right away, but start researching someone who is familiar with Lemon Laws in their State. Once the mfg. decides the best way to handle repair the unit, I would negotiate a longer warranty period in the case of delamination in the area that has been rained on.

RE: Easter Sierras Advice Needed--RV Parks and Sites to See

A Good place to start is with RV Park Reviews. That area is beautiful area to explore. We like Lee Vining, Ca https://monovistarvpark.net/ Also, https://mcgeecreekrv-campground.com/ Bodie Ghost Town, Virginia Lakes, Touloumne Meadows, Devil's Postpile, visit Convict Lake. In Lee Vining we always stop at for a meal: http://www.whoanelliedeli.com/ Bishop, Ca has Eric Schat's Bakery, parking across the street in the city park. Without a tow vehicle you can drive from Lone Pine, Ca to see the Bristle Cone Pine Forest. there is also a Western Movie Museum in Lone Pine as well as a drive up to Whitney Portal.

RE: Electric Vehicles? Towing? Hauling?

We have two Tesla's and love them. Whenever a software update is available, the cars automatically download and install the updates. The Car's are also able to communicate with the "Mothership" to provide Tesla with information about the car and our driving profiles. It would be easy for the car to self report miles driven automatically, and the taxing authority could use this data to collect "road use" taxes. Additionally, Tesla's cannot be unplugged unless the "FOB" is nearby.
