Best way to Pinnacles from Temecula??

As the title says, we need to get there in a 36 foot RV so which way would be best?? trying to avoid as the much of the mountain twisty bits as possible. Anyone have much experience traveling there in a rig this long??

There are directions to Pinnacles on the trail map downloads:

Hwy 173 around the lake is still least it still was a couple weeks ago. That would normally be your best bet, but right now the only alternative is to come in on Grass Valley Road. It takes you through some neighborhoods and some tight twisty stuff...there just isn't any other alternative right now.....

36 motorhome or 5th wheel behind a truck? MH would be easy. 5th would be OK if you're cautious and don't miss your turns (no good turn-arounds).

Like he said, Grass Valley Road is tight, but doable. Last time we rode there a guy rolled up in a new 30ft bumper tow WW. He unloaded SIX brand new Chinese quads and you know this guy was no expert with the thing. It appeared to be his first trip out with the whole rig. Take it SLOW through the neighborhood and it will be OK. Watch the turns too. It's not all that obvious which road you need to take and there's one turn left from Grass Valley onto Grass Valley that I've missed more than once. Study it on Google maps before you go.

Take the 18 out of San Bernardino, its much less twisty than the 330.

      I don’t ride as often as I used to (every few months now) After dealing with ethanol laced gas turning to shit a few times (I always treat it with ethanol type fuel preservative), is there anywhere in SFV or Simi Valley or nearby that sells real fuel?
      next step will just be draining tanks before I pack the bikes away

      I'm headed down from Northern California in late April/May with my wife and our two dogs. We're just trying to have a relaxing vacation with our dogs and go around and eat at some good places / beaches etc. We were thinking LA but even as far as San Diego sounds good. Wife gave me the a-ok to bring my bike so I can sneak out out a bit to ride. Any suggestions on where to stay?

      Trying to buy an older yz125 w a green sticker. I came across a 2004 that is green sticker. Per the owner "CA used to do a lottery thing on a certain year and bike and it was the 04 125 that got the green sticker". 
      I am gonna confirm the VIN, but was wondering if it's in fact true that CA issued green stickers with a lottery system for 2003 and newer bikes?
      I tried searching and couldn't find anything. 
      Thank you all for you advice.

      I just picked up a 2018 YZ250X and need to do my break in. How gnarly is Rowher Flats after rains like we just had? I'm thinking about heading there Sunday. I moved to LA last year and I've only been there 3 or 4 times, but so far I enjoy the riding there more than most of the "day trip" locations.
      Not the biggest fan of Hungry Valley, but I imagine HV is ok despite the rain this week.
      Side note, how bad does the road in to RF get after weather like we just had?
