RE: Fishing Bridge rv park

The sites are small and the parking lot of a cg is nothing special. We showered, ate dinner, and slept there.. with so much the park has to offer we felt like we were wasting time being there. Have a great time!

RE: Ludington- Lake Michigan ideas

Everything mentioned is great! While in the Sleeping Bear area you could rent tubes and float down the Platte River.. ppl do the same in Ludington SP if you'd rather. Pierce Stocking (sp?) drive is well worth the fee. There is a giant dune climb that was posted in a pic earlier that is fun but difficult. Have fun!

RE: 3 week trip - Colorado, Utah, Arizona

Thanks all! This was just to get some starter ideas. Here's a trip report I've been reading through that today(:

3 week trip - Colorado, Utah, Arizona

So I'm at the very beginning of planning a 2016 trip. I think we are aiming for Colorado, Utah, and Arizona. We enjoy national parks, the sights, and hiking. We did a similar length trip to GTNP, Yellowstone, and the badlands. Is this enough time, too much, not enough to dive into the area? What main points of interest would you hit in these 3 states? Anyone have a trip report or blog of a similar trip? We haven't set a date yet... sometime June-Aug

I'm a fool..

Ordered some stuff for the camper and thought ordering from CW was no big deal.. really wish I had clicked through this forum first. Items are still "processing" and I have no hope of receiving them before our trip): Never again will I order from them when there are so many other good choices available.

LED Strip .. test of time?

I had done the (waterproof) LED strip mod on our last camper that we recently traded in. Over the 3 years, several sections of lights did not function correctly and would usually display a different color than the one chosen. I had bought 2 sets and given one to my brother inlaw who had the same problem. Is this typical for these sets or did I buy from the wrong Chinese company? How has your set faired over time? I'm considering doing this mod again on our new camper but don't want to end up in the same place.

RE: Bunk bed air mattress that fits

How much are bunk mattresses? I've bought tons of air mattresses over the years and it never ends well.

Bumper mounted grill - modified

Has anyone modified their bumper mount, the one intended to be used with the grill provided, to instead hold their portable Weber? google image http://img412.imageshack.us/img412/7262/bestgrillfront.jpg height=400 http://www.montana-camping-guide.com/images/weber-q-120-grill.jpg height=400 width=400

RE: Garden of the Gods (Illinois)

I've looked at Cave in the Rock SP.. just seeing what else is available before we book it.

Garden of the Gods (Illinois)

I'm just starting to plan a trip and I'm wondering about ideas on places to stay. We would like to have electric hookups and be fairly close to the scenic hikes.

RE: Have you switched from friction sway control to HA or P#?

RE: Tracer prime time manufacturing

We love ours! When we bought, the company was new and really went out of their way to make sure we were happy. I hope you find the same(:

RE: The Dark Side

I've read all the replies and appreciate each and every one of them. I like the idea of starting small and seeing how it goes. I'll definitely check the boondocking forum.

RE: The Dark Side

The best things I've bought are a Honda 2000W generator, 2 heavy duty deep cycle batteries and a gray water tote. A lot of the campgrounds here that don't have hookups will have water from a pump and a place to dump gray. I can survive for days/weeks with that setup. And the water thing is really only a big deal for me because I have 3 small kids. It's nice to be able to give them a bath every couple days. In addition to what I have on board for water I also carry three 6 gallon jugs full. Last time I was out for a week I never even needed to go to the pump. The 40 on board plus the 18 in the 3 cans was more than enough. I was mostly concerned with the AC and night temps but the shower thing was a question too.. tnx(:

The Dark Side

I'm looking for testimonials from people that have stayed at CGs without electric hu. Several national parks are on our bucket list and staying on site is appealing to me. However, we have only stayed places with electric thus far. Years ago we tented but we've become accustomed to the luxury and I'm worried about spoiling a vacation.

RE: Wheel slid back a few inches?!

Hot a guy out to get the bolts free and I replaced the spring(: The original wasn't cracked .. just missing the pin down the middle. Now my concern is that the bolts are tight enough. Lippert sent nuts and washers instead of lock nuts for the u-bolts.

RE: Wheel slid back a few inches?!

I couldn't get the bolts off without luck. They must have bent or rusted because they're not even budging. I put it back together as best as possible to tow it to a shop and the spring fell apart and it's worse than before. I'm trying to find a tow company but finding a "lowboy" isn't easy. The surrounding area flooded the other day and they're all backed up. I'm looking into finding a mobile repair now. This sucks):
