Sacramento - any recommendations?

Planning to stop over (2-3 days) in around the Sacramento, CA area from our Palm Springs vacation. Any good recommendations (with FHU service) from recent experiences? Thanks in advance.

It's a 2013 Mountaineer. Don't know the make/model of the converter. I'll have to check later when the weather is cooperating. Sounds like I'll have to pull the batteries out also.
