RE: Bike Rack On Ultralite Rear Bumper

I lost all my bikes due to BIKE RACK failure, not bumper failure. BUT, I did have 4 bikes on it which is ofcourse double the weight! I was one of those (it cant happen to me and I dont believe the hype) Well, it did and I lost $1200 worth of bikes. It can happen, not as much with 2 bikes and a quality rack, but you will see nothing but my factory spare on my bumper.

RE: Should where and how far we drive be a factor?

Since you do plan on traveling alot, Types of tires is one big debate in which you can read many threads on this forum. (maxxis if take a general pole from many on this forum) I will add that it is nice to find a smaller TT with a double axle. These will add a little more weight carrying capacity and a little less stress if you do have a blow out.

RE: Ft Desoto Site Recommendation

We have been many times.. The sites you listed are not the best (thus why they are still open.) You are not too far away, they do open up a few sites that day early morning ( these are for "walk up or drive up people), We have waited till the ealry morning and got nice site, but it is the luck of the draw. IMO, the best sites are 202 - 230 (these are all on the water and very nice) Yes, some do have limited views, the lower 200's have less mangroves. BUT, since you can only book 6 months in advance, they go quick.

RE: niagara falls

We stayed at Braches this past summer. Nice campground. It was small and not crazy busy, even at the peak season of July 4th. Around 15 minutes to Niagara Falls, easy drive. As far as what to do at Niagara, the Cave of winds tour is a must, you get soaked and it is an awesomw feeling to be that close to the falls. It is best just to get the package deal for all the attractions If you are the adventurous type, the jet boat ride, ( I dont remember the name of it) looks great, the wife and kids did not want to go, so, I had to just read about!

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.
