Yep, I hear you.  That is why we settled on towing a 4x4.

We had found ourselves saying "no" to too many roads in the south-west, but also in mountainous and urban areas.  With few exceptions, we learned it's best to bring the Jeep along.  We did tow it on our two week trip around Lake Michigan, but learned in that case we should have left it home.  So it's not something to take on "every" planned vacation.

Getting around in a 2100 does offer more flexibility than our 2350.  But some of those roads in Utah are just too hard on any PC.  They were too hard on our car that we towed before as was the case in Escalante on the road to the trail head to the narrows.  Driving a Toyota MR2 Spyder through deep dry washed rock river beds was our turning point.  So the 4x4 became our tow vehicle of choice.

If we had a PC Quigley 4x4, I still would not take the PC on some of the roads we travelled due to over-hangs, tip-overs, narrows, height clearances, damaging jolts, wash-boarding and such.  Better for us to tow the 4x4 for such day excursions.

This dirt road is not really recommended for RV's. A couple people told me I could do it no problem but it was beyond my comfort zone in a few places. I dragged the hitch carrier a few times, and ripped the wiring socket off. :-(  Ah well, it was a gorgeous drive.

   We have had many discussions on just storing the units,,, to protect not protect (covered) so want get into that

This subjects opens another  What if or This is how I do it... do not get me wrong,,, and why are so many things difficult with these rv's///

I always read turn everything off,, go in and run the genie every couple of weeks... I do 2/3 weeks  drive the Beast  once a month..  Now I'm confused again

   Does not leaving it plugged in and keeping the batteries charged all the time mess with the cycle of the battery?  I only have a converter.. but on our Roadtrek the inverter would run a lot even if not using power  Jeepers why does this get so confusing haha... I'm sure some of the old timers can answer this question about battery cycle etc

Hi Bruce! We hadn't realized you lived right there until after we had moved on up to Napa Valley. Then Mike told us we should look you up and we realized we had been within a mile of you. We now have a mental image of where you are and will try to touch base next time we roll through. I'm glad to hear your house came through unscathed. It's never good to hear about problems when you are away.

We got hit with one of those heavy storms and are glad to report that all the pieces of the Phoenix were still attached when it stopped blowing - we checked. A couple of those wind gusts felt like they could roll us right over. I had John make sure all the wheels and the jacks were solidly on the ground for maximum stability. Then we just sat it out. We were snug and dry and though there were branches and stuff down all over the campground, none of it came flying at us. The next day was clear, blue and beautiful with massive swells and crashing waves on the ocean. We're just outside of Newport, OR right now.

Enjoy your warm dry air and sunshine! We're actually enjoying our rain - the gentler stuff, not that monsoon thing that hit us.

Well, gee Tom, isn't that the Army's job? To get in there and get the job done but make the more "delicate" branches of the armed forces look good? It sounds like they succeeded once again.

GO NAVY, beat Army.

The big game is here in Baltimore this afternoon.
I grew up a Navy brat and then severed for two years active duty, four years reserve duty and two years at NSA.

GO NAVY, beat Army.
