RE: Springfield RV & Camping show Feb 17 to 20th. MA

If you're interested in any motorhome much above "entry level", you'll be disappointed. There are very few motorized units there (class A's and C's) and I think the highest MSRP we saw was around $140k or so. Heck, that's about what our gas Class A was 13 years ago. Back then, you'd see several $200K+ rigs, and even a couple in the $300k-$400k range. yup, though the past few years we haven't been checking to many rv's at the show, but noticed that there seems to be less Class A's, especially the high end ones. We enjoy talking to the various campgrounds, places were we have been to, getting ideas for future trips. Plus we always drop $20 on some rv supply's After the past few yrs of awful cold weather, what a pleasant surprise to be able to walk in without a winter coat!! Mike

RE: Can RV park owners handle guest property?

10 years on he road and I have never experienced anything like this. Would that be glass half full? I am sorry to here this, but as mentioned previously this is better than dealing with drunks. Post a "objective" review at RV Park Reviews, at the very least you will help your fellow Rvers. Mike

RE: Is this Site Declining and losing Members?

I've been using RV.net for many years now, and it seems every winter this subject comes up. Although this year, seems to be a bit more extreme. It's pretty much been the history of these forums that usage drops over the winter months. Usage is higher in the Spring and Fall, and steady through the Summer. But the cold months of the year, activity slows way down. This has been going on, like I said, ever since I started using RV.net (and probably long before that). I will say, usage seems to be down a bit more than usual this winter though. I suppose I'm just an old die-hard here. I've been blasted, told I was wrong, been thanked for my wonderful "sage advise", and even completely ignored. But, I keep coming back for more! I'll keep posting and keep reading, and keep enjoying until the web site is shut down, or I die. Which ever comes first! Instead of typing the same thing, I'll just X2 Mr. Dutchmen! My thoughts exactly. X3 Mr. Dutchmen! Some topic's also get very stinky from the beating of the dead horse over the winter and people have other winter projects to look after while dreaming off spring and the camping season. X4 I still have many, many years of camping ahead of me and hopefully the forum will still be around. Most of the folks here have been a tremendous help to me whether it be that perfect camping spot or some rving insight! :C Mike

RE: Bar Harbor Maine

We were at Mount Desert Narrows Camping Resort about 12 yrs ago. Just inside the island, memory serves place was very clean & maintained. I guess the campground is now corporate owned. By a pie from the pie lady if she still make visits! Mike

RE: The real cost of camping vs not

My feeling on this is you get more bang for the buck when it comes to camping. We bring our own home, cook our own food, sleep in our own beds, enjoy our morning coffee under our awning in beautiful places. You have to put more into camping but the experience is 24 hours... that is valve for me! :C Mike

RE: Looking for a CG near New Britain, CT

Bear Creek is not to bad, we were there a couple of yrs ago. pros, super easy sites to get in/out of, decently maintained, clean, nice campstore, staff friendly. cons, place is new, flat and trees haven't grown in. Place looks like a gravel yard Good Luck Mike

RE: Tempermental slideout on y hybrid

My hybrid 2006 StarCraft 21 SSO camper has a side slideout. The switch to put out the slide seems tempermental. I had the switch tested and it is good. Fuses all good. Sometimes I press the button and nothing. I wait a while try again and it works. I had to go as far as unhooking the battery and then it worked after I hooked it back up. Ideas? Some old fashion diagnostics I have learned over the yrs, you say the switch was tested and sometimes when you press it on nothing happens, at that time try hitting/tapping the switch. I have found that contacts sometimes inside switches will hang up. If slide starts to move while doing this, it will prove the switch is NG and needs to be replaced. In addition, if switch is on and and still nothing is happing go to next step, try tapping/moving the slide motor wire harness, could have a loose connection there. If your handy with a meter, test for voltage. Good luck, Mike

RE: NC to Washington DC to Gettysburg Summer

For DC and if money is not the primary concern Cherry Hill Park has metro bus stop inside the campground, clean, maintained, large sites, and all kinds of amenities. Mike

RE: Help with new England

Check out Winhall Brook, South Londonderry,VT my personal favorite in VT for relaxing, hiking, biking, kayaking, swimming and enjoying nature! South loop has 30 amp W/E sites. Wood bridge to south side of campground can be a tough crossing for the larger RV's but that said I saw plenty of large class A's on the sough loop, something just to be aware of. Mike

RE: Disasters in Travels

- Find out what county you are in. Storm warnings are almost always issued for the counties affected. Good point: it's important when you're listening to your weather radio. Pay attention to your smart phone too, we have had a few near misses in the past. Excellent thread! Mike

RE: Terrible Experience - EZ Living RV Braidwood, IL

I live very close to that dealership. In 3 hours I could be at the FR plant in the Elkhart area. That's where I would go. I know it is a big PITA to do that, and will cost a good bit in round trip (probably two trips) tow fuel and maybe an overnight hotel and meals, but you should sleep better if you do so. We are communicating with Forest River. So far they have been much more helpful and respectful than EZ Living. They seem very interested in our experience with EZ Living. I agree with snowman9000, Take lots of Piks and "communicate" with both forest river and EZ Living. Unit is new and under warranty. If a deal can be make with FR directly so much the better. You have time at least with it being off season. Sorry about this, hope this gets resolved. Mike
