I liked your Thor video & shared it with several friends. My wife & I purchased a new Fleetwood Bounder last year. Though it was not without its newbee problems, Holiday World of Willis Tx & the Fleetwood Customer service teams where great. From the time I met our Sales Person Richard, to Kelly in the service department, & to all the reps at Fleetwood, we have had a great experience with our first class A motor home. We had looked at Thor coaches at Camping World and I’m glad we found Holiday World of Willis Tx.

Why do you still advertise air tabs…they do little if anything for gas milage. It is a tremendous disservice to your readers!

Nobody has ever presented to us any evidence that Air Tabs do nothing for gas mileage. I suspect, however, that this is a product where it’s not easy to prove one way or another if it works. I know we have heard from readers who like the product. So I can’t agree with you that we are doing a “tremendous disservice to our readers.” How do you know that they “do little or nothing for gas mileage?” Please send us the evidence that you used to arrive at your conclusion. — Chuck/editor

I put them on my 33ft. Class A MH they seem to have helped my mileage but what I believe to be best is that a 18wheeler going 70mph pSt me from other direction is hrdley noticed and cross wind handling has somewhat improved, I feel my money was well spent.

The “random thought” regarding leveling seems ignorant of how much grading may be necessary for even modest slopes. In the common downslope from the road situatiion, you’d push the near-road end to the back of the site. Great tent site now, but there’s a bump too big for wheeled rigs to enter… So you lower the road, but now have a roller-coaster between sites, again too bumpy for many rigs to drive. So you smooth the road slope, but now have a twist at each site entrance, also hard on long/rigid rigs. Ultimately, the ideal long level road serving level… Read more »

I have been in dozens upon dozens of parks that could have leveled their unlevel pads if they really wanted to. I think our Random Thought is a good one. — Chuck, editor

We are new to full timing and just wanted you to know we find your newsletter invaluable. Q: when boondocking in southwest do you need permits from BLM? Thank you

:You don’t need a permit to use BLM land, but you do to overnight. Long-Term Visitor Areas (LTVAs) are specially designated areas located on BLM lands in California and Arizona. These LTVAs provide places for visitors to stay for longer periods of time between September and April. A seasonal special recreation permit is required, and the permit allows visitors to stay in any of the six LTVAs in California or two LTVAs in Arizona: Imperial Dam LTVA near Yuma and La Posa LTVA near Quartzsite.

They can also be purchased when you “check in.”

Re: Those screens used to keep bugs out of the furnace and heaters;
In Ontario they can be hard to find, because some idiot at CSA has slagged them as being air restrictive, resulting in poor combustion.
Well, he’s dead wrong, and the RV dealers here are having a hard time finding them.
I have them on my Airstream, and previous Hi-Lo, and no problems
They work as advertised.
