RE: Thousand trails full hookups?

Most TT campgrounds lease sites out on a yearly basis. These sites are usually the full hookup sites. The TT Bend/Sunriver park is a good example, every full hookup site is leased out. We have been members for about 5 years now and I think that abut 90% of our stays have been at water/electric only sites.

RE: Couple annoyances you may know how to solve

If you are using one of those cheap water pressure regulators throw it away as they are actually just water restrictors. Purchase a Watts 263A-LF which is adjustable and has a pressure gauge on it. It will flow 4 to 4.5 gal per minute. I set mine for 55 pounds. Works great but not cheap.

RE: Battery over heats.

Most likely a shorted cell. Pull the battery and take it somewhere to have it load tested. Leaving it plugged in leaves you open to a battery explosion. Get it checked right away. Could be very dangerous.

RE: Still confused - affiliates?

Affiliate systems are just that, systems that are not owned by any one park system but allow members of several parks systems that are affiliated with that particular system to share parks. Usually these systems are open to members on a limited basis such as no holidays, stays of only 7 days, stay only two or three times a year, etc. Probably our favorite affiliate system is ROD since staying in ROD parks is free after your initial yearly dues. Next is Coast to Coast which charges $10 a night. Since most membership systems have parks in one area like the West for example, belonging to an affiliate system allows you to be able to camp in membership parks other than your own system all over the United States. The main thing to look for when purchasing a home park system is that you want to make sure they are members of the affiliate system you want to use also. A few years ago Thousand Trails dropped out of ROD and there were a lot of unhappy campers since if they wanted to camp under ROD they had to find another home park system to join that included ROD. Presently we belong to ROD, Coast to Coast, RPI, and AOR and use them a lot so we feel it is worthwhile. Just like the home park system if you are not going to use them then it is money down the drain.

RE: 2014 ford explorer

Mine is a key type system and ACC needs to be on in order to unlock the steering wheel. Not sure how the no key systems work but I would suspect they would use a relay to accomplish the same thing.

RE: Still confused - affiliates?

Home park is normally the park you purchase your membership at. Membership resort systems who have multiple parks us this designation. If you are considering purchasing a membership in Western Horizon Resorts I only have one piece of advice for you; RUN!!!!!!!!!!!! When we purchased from them they had 23 parks. At last count, I think they are down to 4 or 5 that they actually own and these are for sale.

RE: Expert advice for Insane person?

Bought a travel trailer with what looked like a small amount of water damage one time. Towed it about 30 miles home, by that time one of the corners had opened completely up and you could see daylight through it. If this coach has wood framing which I believe it does, the framing will just disintegrate if it has had much water damage. Look it over good.

RE: A little membership help please

Over the years TT has sold more types of memberships than you can count, each with different privileges. Since you already know that purchasing used is the best way to go; if you find a used TT membership you need to get the membership number and then call TT direct to find out what that particular membership includes. We purchased a used TT Platinum membership which gives us 21 days in and we can then go to another TT park with no time out. It does not include Mid Atlantic/Outdoor World Elite though,and we only get I believe 10% off at Encore resorts. Also be aware than on resales TT will disallow the freezing of dues, eliminate any cabin packages and anything else they feel like doing. These are no longer lifetime memberships and can be cancelled by either party after 10 years. Their statement is, if you don't agree to it we won't transfer the membership. I feel they are trying very hard to destroy the used membership market by offering the zone memberships.

RE: 2014 ford explorer

We are towing a 2014 Explorer and although the manual only tells you to start the car every 6 hours to lube the transmission the battery will go dead in roughly 2 hours as you need to leave the key in the acc position. My solution was to run a charge wire and dedicated ground from the motorhome to the car battery.

RE: mildew oder

Rent or purchase an ozone generator. I purchased one like this Ozone Generator This is what motels etc use to remove odors and ozone will kill mold and mildew.

RE: Looking for opinions

Just my own personal opinion but, I would travel now. Even if it were my wife who was sick and knowing I would be making it hard on myself to survive after spending the money I would go now. I have never heard of anyone who reached the point where they could no longer travel who said I wish I had stayed home more.

RE: Prescription Diet .. A Rant by Pops

States are legalizing marijuana but you have to have a prescription for dog food. Something wrong here.

RE: What would you do for your dog?

I love my dog but if I called it and it failed to come back I sure would not go rushing into the night trying to find it. "If you love something, set it free. If it comes back it's yours. If not, they never were".

RE: Sam's Club Gas

We don't have Sams in Oregon but we bought a membership while in California and use it heavily there and in Arizona. Saved enough on diesel to more than pay for the membership while on a three month trip. Have not found a station we could not get in with our 40 ft motorhome and toad as of yet but assume they are out there.

RE: Unreliable trip planning.

Good Sam only rates the park a 3 out of 10. That alone should be a clue.

RE: Looking for a "soft" rubber truck bed mat

Not sure how soft or hard you are looking for but try doing a search on stall Mats. I picked up one that was dimpled on one side and ribbed on the other. They come in varying sizes and thicknesses. Got mine at the local farm supply store.

RE: Bottled water vs not

I have been making coffee and drinking the water from my tanks either brought from home or gotten in a campground for the last 40 years and am still alive and well. The DW on the other hand refuses drink the water or use the ice and has to have bottled water for everything except her shower. Don't think she has been any healthier than me all these years.

RE: air conditioner cycling

You might be better off but unfortunately if it does not cycle, pretty soon it will freeze up.

RE: Ever had a Bad trip?

Sounds like a typical camping trip in Oregon except we would have to substitute "It was very cold" for "It was very hot". Didn't see any reference to mechanical breakdowns either.
