RE: Review issues!

Anyone else having issues with some of the reviews/ratings of campgrounds in the Good Sam site? I've seen quite a few with great "Number" ratings yet the reviews and my personal observations reflect they were not deserved. I've also seen a few with the opposite. Is there a way to dispute the ratings with Good Sam? Dave (from Atlanta) This is one of the reasons why I use RVPR, they provide very useful and easly accessible tools to check the history of the reviewer, click on the user profile and what info you have or don't have will give you an idea where the reviewer is coming from. Also you can like or dislike a review but you have to be a RVPR member, IMO this provides more ballance to the reviews online. Mike

RE: Fort Ticonderoga

X3 on day trip from Lake George. Was about 18 yrs ago at Lake George Escape. Ausable Chasm is worth a day trip also, maybe 30 minutes north of the Fort if I remember. Mike

RE: Anyone been to Maine 1st of May

I think this year, May in Maine (and all of New England for that matter) will be fine. It's clear that there will be an early spring this year. The weather pattern has already shifted into the spring setup and the jet stream has started north. The "boids are choiping" earlier this spring than I remember. I haven't heard any peepers yet, but I expect to any time now. I'll hold you to that, 6 weeks and counting to my first camping trip! :C Mike

RE: Maine - Old Orchard Beach Area

We stayed at Paradise Park and took their little shuttle to the beach. Pretty convenient. I still can't get over all the Canadians that "headed south" for summer vacation and were having a great time in the 58 degree ocean water while I froze my ass off..... Oh, learn French. You'll hear a lot of it. You must go in July. Try August, it gets up to 63 degrees! :B Mike

RE: Maine - Old Orchard Beach Area

X2 on Bayley's, Back part of the campgrond is newer and more spread out. As mentioned pricy but has all the bells & whistles a resort campground should have. Been to Hid'n Pines and Paradice Park both are great too, get good reviews. Mike

RE: Shenandoah National Park

Luray KOA sites in the 60's offer best view of NP skyline and good shade. Clean, well kept campground with full hookups. Close to midpoint of NP, Luray caverns close by. When we were there 7 yrs ago, campground was more suited for adults. Not sure if that has changed now that it is a KOA. Seems to still get great reviews. Mike

RE: Knoebels at halloween

I'm sure you already inquired about your site length, I've seen lots of large rigs, many Large class A's, especially in the klondike rd area where we have been camping for many years. our area is a newer area and farther away from the campground entrance. Not sure where your area is but it has been my observation that sites closer to the campground entrance seem to be on the somewhat smaller side. Mike

RE: Springfield (MA) RV Show - Feb. 16-19th, 2018

We went Saturady and Holy Cow the show was wall to wall people, never in all the years have we been going up has it been this crowded. Must be because of the snowmageddon that was predicted... Wanted to window shop the class A's but found only a few Thor's. Yeah lots and lots of TT's etc Made the best of our day, afterwords we continued up I-91 to Yankee candle and also had a nice meal in westfield. Got home with snow just starting to fall. Mike

RE: favorite campground and destination

Letchworth State Park in NY, rated one of the ten best state parks in America. Besides all the incredible water falls, scenic venues. The Genesee Valley Canal, which was part of the old Erie Canal runs through the state park, very cool while walking the trails and coming across almost 200 year old engineering/artifacts that was once a canal system. https://scontent-iad3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/19961634_1222101604558607_3137800186244141849_n.jpg?oh=4f373d0e4bcce560f048c0ec2ba9d236&oe=5B1BC573 height=500 width=300 https://scontent-iad3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/19990086_1222101461225288_566293978015515359_n.jpg?oh=f28f6b62e9197a1aad2947916da9d8ab&oe=5B069888 height=500 width=300 We stayed at The Ridge Campground Mike

RE: If your RV is older, keep moving, stranger!

So for any of you who have suffered this bizarre form of age discrimination, how have you gotten around it? Does the prevalence of the "age rule" depend on how la-de-da the RV park is and how much the area is in demand? Have you managed to talk park managers into waiving the rule, maybe by dragging them by the scruff of the neck out to see your RV? And as far as that goes, how is such a blanket policy justified?how is such a blanket policy justified? Shouldn't it be on a case-by-case basis, or do these folks really think that the sight of a 2006 rig will detract from everyone else's experience? 9 time's out of 10 I would bet this policy is used for to remove people that are causing problems or to keep out Rv's that are total wrecks. If you have a 20 year old RV and do a halfway decent attempt to keep it maintained and if you are responsible to your fellow rv'ers I doubt anyone is going to flag you, my 2 cents. Mike

RE: Atwood furnace blower squeel

I have an Atwood furnace, model # 8531-DCLP, which blower squeels upon start up, only lasts a few minutes. Is there a way to oil the squirrel cages for the evacuation and heat blower motors, or maybe the blower motors them selves? Thanks for the assistance Some experience concerning sleeve type motor bearings and maybe not directly toward atwood furnace blower motors. Check to see if motor spins freely while motor is cold, if it spins with resistance good chance you need to replace motor. If It spins freely, oil will give you some time. regardless I would replace the motor. Good luck Mike

RE: Is 70 the age to stop towing

When a person fails on multiple levels like this, it exhibits some real questionable thinking ability. Not trying to take this out of context, years ago remember reading on this forum a young camping family towing a 35'TT with a dodge Durango from canada to florida. Somewhere on the way down he tried passing someone in a rain storm, lost control, went head on into a tractor trailer. He, his wife and 3 of his 5 kids died. what I'm trying to say is tragic events like this have happened at every age group. Mike

RE: Cape Cod, Etc.

Sorry to hijack this helpful thread, we plan to be up in Eastham after labor Day weekend. Plan on doing 2 separate day trips. Seems the best valve for ferrys would be HyLine ferries to Nantucket and Island Queen to Martha's Vineyard? Plan on taking our trek road bikes. MikeBest value, as long as the bay is flat or you don't get seasick. The Hy-Line boats are smaller than most of those run by the Seaamship Authority. Cheaper (although not all that much) but "bouncer". Sounds like we will keep an eye on the weather and of course pack the Dramamine. Thanks for the advice. Mike
