RE: rv parks on RT 81

We have done similar trips. The one we have stop at is http://koa.com/campgrounds/hagerstown it's about 8 hr from eastern CT. Average campground, good for an overnight stay. Mike

RE: Vermont cg suggestions, please

WE liked Quechee Pine Valley KOA. They have an older section on the hill and some newer sites at the bottom that are long level pull thrus. Was there last summer... think the newer sites are up on the hill and the older sites are at the bottom. Mike

RE: Narrowing it down...would love experiences/opinions

We are almost never on a power site, so some of the fancy bells and whistles that are from power aren't quite as big of a deal to us as they may be to some.Bring on your opinions! Don't be shy!!! Over time you will find the power/heat/refridge and A/C will probably become a big deal when I comes to keeping the entire family happy. Mike

RE: RV Park Review deferred

For the record though, count me amongst those who DO want to know if a park has recently been purchased by a Medical Marijuana Support Group. If posts are deferred for that, please reconsider. It's probably better for everyone if posts discuss objective observations. Therefore, if ownership of a park by a particular group results in what you consider objectionable behaviors then those should be noted (for example, distributing free "product samples"). That way we don't get into a gray area by commenting on the kinds of people who own a park. I doubt you would consider it appropriate to comment if a particular church owned an RV park, unless that church's practices affected your enjoyment of it. The same thing is true of the marijuana folks. They might own it and you'd never know it if they simply ran it as a business. It's only when they cross the line and their "beliefs" affect customers that it is appropriate to comment on in a review. Joel Interesting... I'm at a campground right now where the owner runs a church service every Sunday out of his camp rec hall. Once a year for the last 5 yrs we have camped here. NEVER have I had a problem or conflict with his service effecting our enjoyment at the campground. Just my 2 cents the owner understands you need a seperation between beliefs and good business practices. Mike

RE: Cherrystone va

We were there 10 yrs ago, at time my kids were 11 & 12 yrs old. We did the 4 hr charter trip, kids had a blast, cought lots of fish which we cooked at our campsite. Plenty to do at the campground, kayaking, fishing ,crabing,claming, swimming pools, loads of amenities. Not having much to do around the campground is a relitive term... for us we did several day trips to Busch Gardens and VA beach. Averaged about 1 hr travel time each way which wasn't a problem for us. Mike

RE: Warmer weather around the corner!

Just cleared a good 15" of snow and ice off the trailer roof. Sounds like next week were going to have a melt off with temps in the 40's... it's been so consistently cold in CT I can't remember what that feels like! LOL Lets hope the weather is finally turning the corner! Did I say the weather was finally turning the corner? :E well little did I know the corner was still another 6 weeks away. With that said next week here in CT the temps are finally going to start having that spring feel to it...NOW I think we have turned the corner! :C :C Mike

RE: suburban water heater

I put about 20 pounds of air into the gas line. From what im reading on line, Im sure I destroyed my water heater. Hoping nothing else, like the stove was hurt. Now I have to figure out how or where to get the part for the water heater. Yes I feel like a idiot. Yes my wife is so proud of me. Gas valve probably needs to be replaced. usually gas components are leak checked with soap bubbles and static gas pressure. Just my 2 cents I would have local rv service teck do the repair. WE ALL make mistakes so I wouldn't loose any sleep over this. Mike

RE: Anybody know whats under the Jayco x20e couch? Take out?

Does anyone know if it is just flat floor under the couch or does it have a high ledge? I believe it's flat Mike

RE: Anybody know whats under the Jayco x20e couch? Take out?

If memory serves I believe the drive unit that opens the slide is under the couch. Honestly I think that whole slide/couch is designed to be one piece. That said if your real handy nothing is imposssible... Mike

RE: New England!

A possible campground for the OP would be Hammonassette State Park. No full hookups, but if you can get a partial hookup (water and electric) you might enjoy it. Right off I95, and the electric sites are within 100 yards of the beach. I don't think you'd have any problem with a large 5th wheel. After saying this, I have to warn you that the odds of getting an electric site are almost zero. LOL, I've been trying to get a W/E site for the past 2 yrs, no luck. you would think the higher ups in our state would like to promote RV tourism...guess not... Mike

RE: How important are my "must haves"?

We are upgrading from a popup. I have a list of things I want in a hybrid...and so far, it doesn't exist. Here's my list: full size fridge/freezer full length awning outside cooking (hookup and mounting bar) room inside to sleep more than 6 (even if it is floor space for a cot) lots of storage We'd like to keep the length under 23 ft. This doesn't seem like too much to ask for!!! We are looking at the rockwood roo 21DK....the compromise there is not enough inside space and storage. I LOVE the Jayco 20E. Love the layout, space, storage, etc. But, there's a small fridge, and small awning. I think those are deal breakers for me. Does anybody know if it is possible to put a bigger awning on this thing? It looks like it would cover the outside storage area if I did that, but I'm willing to sacrifice it for the awning. Does anybody rely entirely on that little fridge (in the 20E) and find it not a problem? Of course, going up in size gives me everything I want and more. But, it's usually a 2 1/2-3 ft jump in length. I'm not sure it would fit in our driveway space. Also, we mainly dry camp, and love being secluded in the woods....I'm thinking this bigger camper would change that. It seems like it would be much harder to maneuver into those heavily treed, narrow-road camping spots. But, maybe I'm wrong? I have no experience with this, so I'd love opinions. It just seems HUGE to me. We've considered the shamrock 21SS. My husband doesn't want a massive slideout. Again, it would limit where we could camp (too wide). If we could use the trailer without sliding out the slide, that would be ideal. This camper doesn't allow that. It closes off parts of the inside completely if you slide it in. Although I do believe I've seen every camper made by humans at this point, maybe I've missed one? Is there something that has everything under 23' long? (preferably under 22'). With our X20E, never had a issue with our refridge. We had up to 4 adults for a week, never a problem with food storage. Now with our awning I wasn't thrilled with it being 2' smaller than the one on our previous 21'TT, but that said it was not a deal breaker...just got use to it... Mike ....opps I double posted...

RE: Mice

CATS. At least a few. Our 5er is stored indoors Nov to April in a large barn/shed/ steel framed building with a concrete floor on a chicken farm. Cats live in the building. The inside of the trailer gets the mothballs & dryer sheet treatment so it does not smell very nice. 7 years, no problems with anything inside. We had a cat for 13 yrs where we stored our trailer at home... the cat was a killing machine when it came to mice & critters... while the cat was alive we never had a problem with either our trailer or in our house.... wish I had my cat back...

RE: Previous Campgrounds

I want to second the vote for RV Park Reviews. As an officer in an FMCA chapter, I am often looking for venues. When we get a good one, I write about it. When we hit a bad one, I write about it. When we hit a mediocre one, I still write about it. I read these reviews a lot and try to take them all with a grain of salt. It does specifically annoy me when you get to a website and have to go deeply into the reservation section to find out the rates. The is covered early in RV Park Reviews. Matt Another vote for RVPR, Your thinking is the same as mine....if the campground is good, bad or just average, I will "review" the campground. Mike

RE: Back when camping was camping

Iknown thought I would post this to bring all of us who have these homes on wheels and "camp-out now. Back years ago, my wufe and our then 2 children took a camping vacation down into Kentucky to stay in a State Park. Packed evetthing in a 2-wheeled trailer, we tented, and I had installed a plywood area in the back seat so the kids could play. Yes, I know, they weren't restrained, no seat belt law in the "olden days". Unkown to me at the time, my wife had put a small cooler with fresh eggs in the back window. We arrived at our campsite, only to discover our son had gotten into the eggs and you can guess the mess.Wifey tosses the egg mess into the woods and I informed her that we are going to attract animals tonight. Off to bed we go and about 2hrs. later, we hear something outside out tent. Our tent, being well used, had a zipper that wouldn't zip all the way down, so got flashlight out and snuck a peak outside and stared face-to=face with the biggest skunk in the forest. Now unfortunatly he wants to come in and the tent won't zip up so we took the diaper pins off our son and as careful as we could, we fastened the tent opening up. After trying several times to get in and us huddled in a corner of the tent, laying out a plan, he left. After a while we went back to bed until the next morning, and life went on. Love this story! :C Mike
