RE: Sand and debris in water lines

So, I guess I will start with draining the water heater. I have not done this as I dont winterize and really dont think about it. Regarding the hoses, I do not drag the hoses as that is an obvious source of dirt/sand. I also install covers on both ends just after I disconnect from the TT and the water bib so not a chance of anything getting in them. . I guess the next step would be the better filters, I will have to look into them. Thanks for all your responses..

Sand and debris in water lines

We seem to always get sand and stuff in my lines and clogging the faucets diffuser or the toilet line screen. We do use a regular carbon filter, (the blue one from Walmart) but this does not seem to stop the sand. How do you all keep the lines from getting clogged? Maybe it is the southern campgrounds? Thanks

TT, 2nd a/c prep/ wiring from factory

My question is this: if your TT is prepped for a second a/c and you then add it later... Will that be connected to the ceiling ducts or just blow out of the unit? Given the fact that the main a/c was always connected to all the ducts. I am contemplating ordering 2 a/c's, but don't want to be worried about always finding 50 amp campgrounds. If I add later, I should always have air going in the bedroom with the one unit and be able to stay on a 30 amp without cooling issues. then, if I am staying where 50 amps are available, I can use both. (Keeping in mind we have the kids in the bunk house and always need a/c throughout, we would not use 1 or the other)

RE: Is a 50amp service worth the upgrade?

It seems to me with the type of camping we do it may be best to only have the 1 unit. We are a young family, we don's sit in the TT for long periods of time nor are we at a CG for more than 4 days. I know there are many campgrounds that the 50 AMP service is not where we want to camp. Sometimes they are in the front and not the "woodsy" sites. Our TT now is 29' and never had an issue with poor cooling. The one we want is about 31' and has the larger 15BTU unit. Unless I could "select" the ducts I want to use, it may be easiest to have one unit. This forum has answered so many questions for me and helped me make the best decisions possible (That I am capable of!) Thanks for all your help

RE: Is a 50amp service worth the upgrade?

Another question... If you are on a 30 amp connection (as many state parks are) can you run both a/c's? The TT we are looking at has 1 for the master bedroom and the other takes care of everything else. If I couldn't use both at the same time, that would create problem. Since most our camping is here in fl / Ga.,.. Either us or the kids would not be happy...

RE: Convinced On Buying a '15 F350...

My garage is that clean, no big deal.... problem is, my truck cab would hit the garage lintel and bed would stick out 5 foot! So, it is clean because I can only fit the wives EXPY in a 3.5 car garage. So, awesome garage.. Oh yeah, nice truck and good luck with her!

RE: Camping at Disney in Florida

Modern Family. Did you do the trip in one night? Or make overnight stops? No campfires? Do they have TV service then? LOL Straight through, HAHA!! Maybe 20 years ago, single, pumped up with Red Bull and no trailer.. We actually were on a big trip, Niagara was our final northern destination, then many other sights on the way back down. Northern NJ (where I grew up) used to take me about 18 hours from tampa, but that is going the I-95 route. It took us about 6 hours additional to get to Liberty State park from Niagara. So, you should be looking at 25-26 hours from the border. Dont know about the other route.

RE: Camping at Disney in Florida

If you are asking about Fort Wilderness, it is well known as one of the nicest campgrounds out there. You will pay anywhere from $90+ depending on the month. I just drove that route (coming back from Niagara Falls) easy ride, just try to stay away from the big city areas during rush hour. Just make your way to I-95 and go from there. Google the forum "fort friends" there is everything you could possibly want to know on that forum. Very clean, friendly campground, the only thing I would say is that the sites are a little on the narrow side. But, the most expensive sites,, do have some room.

RE: Run Gas AND Electric?

X3 from above. We use both every time (at shower time) . Definitely quicker recovery. We use electric every other time so as to not waste the gas.

RE: Tubing in western NC or VA - Jellystone Campgrounds?

Do not go to that jellystone natural bridge. Looks great on the internet, not so much in person. Just went there this past July 4th. The staff was not prepared for the holiday weekend and everything just failed. You could not see the bottom of the pool, was terrible. My daughter got sick from the pool water and we spent a night in the hospital. (so too did our friends son) the hospital tested her stool and said it was a Bacteria from pools or ponds. Arcade was only 20% operational as all games were broken and the pond / beach (which we did not go in, was complete weeds and slime. Maybe I expect more, but it was all nasty. Anyway, we like jellystones, just don't go to that one. The luray caverns are much nicer nah the natural bridge caverns. Also, the shortest tubing ( through jellystone) you can do is 4 hours, don't know about you, but my 8 and 12 year old could not spend that long on a tube.. (Nor could I) We did enjoy the river though as that was the most refreshing... we spent hours just sitting in the flowing water and skipping rocks.

RE: Rear bumper bike rack - need advice

Even if the bumper is reinforced correctly, the weight of 4 bikes on the back of a bouncy trailer is just not safe. My experience was just that... Lost all 4 bikes to BIKE RACK failure, not bumper. (I thought I had it covered with all the reinforcement) You need the correct rack and bumper combo, and then maybe I would say 2 at the most. That being said, you will only see a spare on my bumper!

RE: NJ turnpike tolls

Ofcourse I planned ahead, ( just didn't have enough cash in the truck, can't think of everything with 2 kids, 3,200 miles in just 2 weeks! ) I wanted the most direct route and the route I knew the best. I didn't really care as we most likely will not be up there again any time soon. I was just shocked at the cost. We had a fairly loose budget being our 1 big trip for the year, lots of saving, so $50 was not a concern to try and change routes. I do have a florida EZ pass, and was planning on using it until the first toll both came and I asked them and they said " we use most EZ passes, except Florida" great, thanks, I replied... Anyway, this was more of an fyi just in case someone else who does travel these roads often like us wanted to know... Bring cash!

NJ turnpike tolls

I could not believe how much tolls were traveling from jersey city (liberty state park) straight down the turnpike into Delaware and beyond. I think we paid about $50 on the turnpike. I have not been up in that area for about 12 years, they are just completing a huge road project.. I guess they need their $$$ Note to self.... Have a lot more cash for tolls in the truck next time we take a big trip! Had to pull off the road to reload from the trailer!

RE: Florida state caverns

Wow, I have not heard of anyone getting sick from the caverns. Must have been a scary situation.

RE: Fort wilderness for the Disney marathon

I have to look at some as winter approaches, I have been wanting to do the gasparilla, for the past couple of years, maybe this is the year! Before vacation 3 weeks ago, I ran my own timed "half marathon" (the wife kept me honest) I felt good. I need a few weeks to get back to that... Then on and on and on.........

RE: Is a 50amp service worth the upgrade?

Great comments! Thanks all... We are going bigger! 32' 35' we would like the 2nd slide for the bunk house for the kids and we really like the newer option of the kitchen slide. Most tt's that big have the options of the 2nd a/ c and 50 amp. (Which I would not do one without the other) We do camp in Florida / Georgia often... As far as campgrounds, we stay where ever the destination is. We only camp on holiday weekends and one longer summer vacation, so I would not choose campgrounds based on the service they offer. But, I do understand what you all are talking about, I will always be thinking about it if I did choose a 50 amp. We just got back from our 2 week summer trip. 4 out of the 7 campgrounds had 50 amp, (I think) and I would have stayed at those CG no matter what service they had due to their proximity to our destination. I know we have a lot to look at, BUT, sounds like getting 50 amp would be great, just may not be useful every time. We have to shrink down our brand search, then see how it all plays out at the dealership.

RE: Florida state caverns

We too had a great experience there a couple of years back. We just went to the natural bridge caverns in Virginia and had high expectations, but it was disappointing compared to the florida caverns.
