RE: Trip Report: The Perfect Family Trip!

Very, very nice! Congrats on a successful "perfect" trip. Excellent pictures and great memories. As you said, things will always go wrong or not exactly as planned, but you can still have the perfect trip. We did a 3500 mile trip to the northeast this past summer with our 8 and 11 year old. Hopefully in the next few years we will get out west. Vacation time off is my challenge. Look forward to seeing more

RE: Colleton State Park in Walterboro, SC

We were there this past July, It is a great stop over campground. Very close to the interstate, but very quiet and spread out. Nice lake, playground for the kids, large sites. I had no reason to talk to any ranger nor use the restrooms, so can't comment on those. We would definitely stop by again if on our route.

RE: Can I walk on my TT roof?

Sorry, not really buying that.. Just CYA from keystone... The roof is made the same as those with a ladder.

RE: Can I walk on my TT roof?

Having a ladder has nothing to do with being able to walk on the roof for a keystone product. A ladder is just an option, they add supports to the rear walls of the TT for the ladder. The roof is built the same way no matter what. You-tube keystone building process, they are all built with the same thickness plywood that can be walked on for maintenance as stated earlier. I walk on mine every time to install / remove the cover. There is absolutely no problem at all with doing this.

RE: Sand and debris in water lines

Just an update... To those of you who said water heater .... Winner .. Winner!!!! I got her out if storage the other day to get ready for Labor Day camping and was finally ready to check it out. You learn something everyday. I would have never thought so much calcium would build up. There was about 1/4" or more of " junk" on the bottom of the tank. All loose and floating around just waiting to clog the lines. I just removed the anode rod and hooked up to the house water and just kept the water on for about 10 minutes until it was all cleaned out. The element had some calcium on it, but I was not in the mood to remove and clean. Thanks all for your help.

RE: Oscar Scherer State Park Florida Review, Lots of Pictures

We were just there this past Memorial Day. We enjoyed it and really liked the proximity of Nokomis Beach. Great sand and no where near as crowded as siesta key, but equally as nice. There were a few real nice sites right on the river that we can fit it for next time. We will go back.

RE: 2015 Keystone Passport Delamination

I am in the home building business and sometimes fixing a small issue (if it is just cosmetic) is worse than leaving it along. Things almost never go back together correctly the 2nd time the way they were done originally.. (EX: They damage something else not related to the problem. Get things dirty, loose, etc..) I agree, not pretty and I hope they take their time and fix it right.

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!
