I think that it would be a good selling point for your park to offer internet and cable. When given a choice, I will not pay an extra fee for cable and especially internet, but I would chose a park that offered it over a park that didn't. Even though the per nite charge might be a bit higher. Seems to indicate that the park might have more concern for the needs of its campers than one that doesn't. I realize that paying a higher price, or paying a fee for service might be the same, its the overall attraction of the park that counts most.
Trace State Park, west of Tupelo, MS. If you have time, consider crossing on 412 at Dyersburg, then US45 from Jackson, Tenn the rest of the way. Lots to see and do, mostly good 4lane roads. 55-65 speed limits.
Good luck trying to find a flip phone any more! The just plain phones are almost a thing of the past. We did fine one several years ago, and have kept it as long as possible. We do not text, or use data at all on that phone, as both cost extra. We found that the phone keeps trying to use data, and some of the buttons are set to go to internet mode if you accidently press one. I contacted our carrier, AT&T and had those features completely turned off and blocked for that phone. Now, it talks, and takes an occasional picture, and that is all.
i want mine in a base bright yellow, with purple and green and blue flowers. We did meet one couple that were full-timing, they were artists, and were painting their own design a bit at a time. They were also adding the names of people they met as part of the design.
I have been called to task about my information on the Ford v10. Sorry, I am not an engine person, and just stated information that I had been given by others regarding my engine. Please disregard, and I defer to others that probably know much more than I do. Meanwhile, I will continue to use 5W20 synthetic oil.
Keep the Jeep! 3700 behind a V10 is not problem. However, with our HHR, for long mountain pulls and more so downhills, We disconnect and let DW lead the MH to reduce load pulling and brakeing on long steep downhills. We stay in touch via cellphones if needed. Less than a minute to disconnect or connect, so its not a major thing. Here in the east, its not usually a problem, but its a good option.
Towing weight is important, but to me, stopping ability is also another very important point. Find out what your brakes (and tires) are rated for. It is really scary to have all 4 tires skidding as a trailer pushes you from behind.
Second question about slides. Again IMHO. We park at home whenever we are not on the road, and have toppers over our slides. If the weather is going to be bad, storms or snow, we usually keep the slides in. No worry about the mechanism, as both slides are hydraulic, and the rollers are protected underneath. more worry about weather exposure for the canvas toppers, and seals. and/or leakage around the tops of the slides.
You will get all kinds of comments here, so I will start. I have driven our Ford V10 Triton over 80K miles so far, and have always used full synthetic oil, generally 5W20 Castrol. As far as the mileage goes, the oil weight is not going to make much difference. From what I hear and my experience, the Triton is a shorter-stroke engine, and revs higher than some others. I feel that the synthetic oil gives better protection for this engine, consitering that I sometimes need to run the higher revs for extended time, especially for long grades. I have been told by folks that know engines better than I do that the climbs do not hurt, just to try and keep it under 4000 rmp range but occasionally higher is OK. I understand that this engine develops max horsepower up in the 3500-4200 range. I feel better protected with the synthetic oil , and not having to worry about oil changes as often. This is all IMHO, and I will not get upset if anyone disputes me. I will just continue to do as I please, and let them do theirs.
Basically, no! Depending on which way you are going, you will have to gt off at a shopping center or other shopping area, or a church parking lot. Best just gt it cool before you start, you should have an few hours to find a stopping place. Before the toll booth, there is a wide center median area, but it all depends on the traffic. If not bad, there is a right hand shoulder that we have used if you are fast and the traffic is not bad. Also depends on which side you tank is on. In our current rig, it is on the street side, so the shoulder is not an option.
Camp hosts sites generally tend to be a bit bigger and more accessable than many of the rental sites, usually because the hosts like to set up their site for a longer stay. Also, some tend to have a lot of visitors coming by to visit or just to be socialable.
Some of these folks are like the person that pulled up to the other side of the dump station I was using. Thank goodness I had completed dumping, and had stored my hoses, elbow, and sewer pipe connector. He just pulled out his dump hose, connected it to the trailer, and just laid the hose out on the ground with the opening pointed toward the drain. Then opened valves and let both tanks just dump out into the open. At least he did raise the cover over the drain, so that most finally ran into the drain after spreading over the entire dump area. I just pulled clear of the wet area, then got out and finished closing up my bins and locking everything up. And he had an elbow for the end of the hose laying right there inside his wet bin, next to the valves.
We use it for everything, use lots of water, dump when needed, and flush as often as possible. We bought it to use, and would rather use ours than theirs. If you ever work as a host and have to clean restrooms, you see enough to keep out of public restrooms forever! The way some people use the public restrooms, I would not let them in our bathroom under any conditions. I would hate to see their bathrooms at their homes.
Looks like a fairly civilized place, ask at the campground office, or one of the maintenance staff. If its gas, any good shop with a high door and space can help you. I used a mechanic for several years that could not get the rig in his shop, so he just changed the oil outside on his lot. Diesel, find a truck service center, and get in line. Truckers have priority.
