Trip across America

Hello everyone, We just returned from a 6200 mile trip in our 2016 Vegas 25.2. All went well. The motorhome performed great with out any issues. We did not tow this time. We met a lot of great people and enjoyed just being able to get out and see this great country. God Bless America and all of you.

That's so great to hear! I've done a lots of "bits and pieces" traveling, but am 3 years away from being able to do it without a time schedule. I, too, really like meeting all of the wonderful people along the way!

There is nothing like full time traveling throughout this country. We did three years worth with only 3 month stationary breaks camped in SW Florida for each winter. Even with all those miles and months devoted to seeing the U.S. we only really covered 26 states. We have been back in a house for about two years now but I could sell everything and head out again tomorrow!

We just got back from two months on the road to AZ. About 4k miles and always met new and interesting people. Most of the trip was dry camping.
Two weeks at Lost Dutchman SP near Apache Junction, AZ. While $20 a night for dry camping is steep the park is nice. $30 will get you water and electric hook-ups. Two weeks and Big Bend, $7 a night. 3 Days at Amistad near Del Rio; $2 a night all dry camping.

We tried to stay to the south We got on 95 South around Lumberton and then hit 20 over to Dallas Ft Worth then we picked up 10 down toward the Mexican Boarder. Outside LA we took 5 North in California. Coming back we came down 1/101 then 10, 20, 95. Now with that said there were several stop off places that would take us around on 2 lane roads then back to the interstates. Here is a pic from Banning California, Stagecoach KOA. Snow caped mountains and Coyotes howling in the hills.

We will pick up our 2017 25.2 in a couple days.
A stupid question, who do you handle the bottom sheet as you fold the bed?
Thanks for any help.

The sheets, bottom and top, too just fold over with the bed. We have a foam topper which, with the bedspread, prevents the mattress from folding flat. I attached two eye hooks to stretch a bungee across the folded portion to hold it up.
Congratulations on your new coach!

Folding bed and sheets

Thank you for the insight. I'm not sure that I understand but I tend to overthink things. I'm sure that when I'm standing there looking at the bed and reviewing your advise in my mind, things will be very clear.

You stated that you added a topper, if I may ask, what size and where did you purchase?

Regular queen sheets?

Again; Thanks for the help
Jerry

Fridge frost in freezer compartment

Nice to hear from Vegas and Axis owners.
We are currently plugged in at the Fountain of Youth RV Spa Resort near Bombay Beach off hi way 111, on the Salton Sea. We're the new owners of a 2017&1/2 we were told Vegas 25.2. Love it! We've been on the road nearly 5 weeks, 1700 miles.

We have developed excessive frost in the freezer as the book terms it? It's getting inside food baggies? Any thoughts?

It helps to place the battery operated frig fan inside on one of the lower shelves. Also outside humidity affects frost buildup.

We have had that topper for years, probably came from one of the big box discount retailers. I think it is a two inch foam, not the egg crate type.
You'll get differing opinions on sheets. We use standard queen sheets, and yes, they are too long and must be retucked every day.

Check to see if the seal is tight all the way around the door. Warm, moist air will make it frost over fast. An old appliance guy used to check the seal with a dollar bill. Close one in the door and check the resistance when you pull it out.
This is almost surely your problem.
