RE: WestMoreland State Park, VA

The big run on camp sites is Friday and Saturday.. Sunday is like a ghost yard at all the sites haha... We usually have great luck going on Thursday for the weekends and of course Sundays and Mondays you can pick any site you want haha... Our two favorite sites in the B Section is just below the Bath house. There is three electric sites there before turning into all non-electric tent type camping sites... I'm thinking B49 is the number but when I look on-line I don't see any sites below the bath room building listed. Something may have changed for this year there... We didn't go to Westmoreland last year... We see alot of MD tags at Westmoreland... We usually check-in at the main gate but now that the Vistor Center is going full force you may have to drive to it to check-in... We would always go setup and walk down to the check-in place if we didn't check-in at the gate. It may have changed now that the Vistor Center is all opened up... I have camped many of times on the B non-electric sites that go West of the bath house. Nice and peaceful at the end of that loop... I'm not much help for you here haha... If you are not too far away in MD drive down on the weekend and look around... Roy Ken

RE: WestMoreland State Park, VA

One of our favorite camp sites... Of course just living some 25 miles away from it helps haha... I don't think none of the designated camp grounds are within short walking distance to the beach area... You have to go down a steep hill to get to the beaches... There is a large parking lot there next to the beach... We camp at B camp ground which is mix of Electric sites and non electric sites. Mixes the Tent camping into the RV Trailers... These are mostly back in sites with a few pull throughs... The A site is along a ridge so to speak up above the Potomac River area and most of these are pull through sites. Mostly the large Class As camp here... They have a new Visitor Center now which I have never been in yet... Probably has alot of things in it to look at now... Site folks are very friendly and there is a camp store down by the beach area. Has a real nice pool area which is free to use for campers... We like to go set around the couple of peers out on the water in the early evening time. They also have a boat launch area... Lots of trails and lots of wildlife walking through the area at dusk... Kids love riding their bicyles around the trails around B site at dusk and early evening. You can see their bicycle lights going up and down the trail and the kids are having a great time.. Each camp zone has a nice bath room area with shower... Each camp zone has firewood available as well... Pay on the honor system Just outside the main gate is a nice country store for supplies... I go down there all the time with my OFF-ROAD POPUP trailer to test out some of my back in the woods mods I am always doing... HDTV and Cell phone service is good in the area... One of the things that hikers like to do is go along the water line and look for shark teeth... I love the evenings when all the deer start coming around. Lots of squirrels too... Go to their web page and look up the camp grounds maps etc... Roy Ken

RE: Detachable Side Mirrors for auto

I have the type that slip around the stock mirrors and have a large thumb screw on the back of them. When tightened down there is no movement of the add-on extended mirrors... Although I don't need additional extended mirrors nice to have a set in the tool box for a good PLAN B... I ordered mine from AMAZON... Roy Ken

RE: TV mounting?

Thank goodness the flat screen LCDs don't weight anything like the older heavy ones did. You can mount them almost anywhere. Have even seen them mounted on swinging cabinet doors... Roy Ken

RE: Electrical Woes

Thats a very big bummer getting on the road and having problems like this. I always try to find out how everything works at home to try to keep ahead of events like this... Doesn't always work... You know it will be something simple once it gets figured out... Roy Ken

RE: RV Park Reviews suddenly not working correctly

Just tried RV PARK REVIEWS using WIN 10 Edge and it worked fine... I haven't upgraded FIREFOX in awhile - Probably using an older version of it... I normally use FIREFOX for everything here... Roy Ken

RE: Must provide proof of scale weight to renew TC tabs

I see you mentioned the word TAB a couple of times. I guess this is something you attach to your truck license plate. I have to register my Truck license plates each year here in Virginia and usually do it by mail. They send me a new date on a new stick on label. Maybe this is what you are referring too. I do notice that the truck license plate gets moved to the Trailer if it hides your truck plate location in the rear. I always assumed the TC's were just considered cargo in the back of your truck. My Pull trailer with wheels and axles requires a lifetime license based on what the trailer weight numbers are here in Virginia... Roy ken

RE: Advise on Satellite choice

It seems that DirectTV is now gearing up with AT&T to provide endless downstreaming for their HDTV channels. Just got recent brochure for their new plans ranging from $35 to $60 per month. Brochure says "Stream live TV and ON DEMAND anytime, anywhere, data free when you have AT&T Wireless..." This will be HDTV over the internet... No equipment to install - No SAT Dish required... Everything is downstreamed to your devices... If you are signed up with AT&T it is provided at no additional cost or something like that... Have no idea how this is going to affect SAT TV in RV units for the future... I already do the Internet this way using Verizon Wireless.... I downstream our local cable TV provider over the internet now to watch our local HDTV channels here around the house and outside around the patio. Also do same thing here when driving Ms Daisy around the local town doing her shopping. I watch our local HDTV cable channels over the internet connection just fine sitting in my truck anywhere I have internet connections... Our local provider also has installed several WIFI Hot Spots antennas around our town for anywhere TV as well at no cost to subscribers... We don't actually have to have HDTV here anymore- The local provided small Box has HDMI output and that is all we run the the HDTVs now. In my radio room here one of those local cable boxes feeds one of my 24-inch monitor HDMI channels - No high dollar HDTV required... Sounds and works great just using my HDMI computer monitor... I figured this out when my HDTV on the wall in my radio room went out on... Just plug the cable box into the computer monitor now... Computer monitors are alot less expensive than high dollar HDTV's Using the local cable company over the Internet is real useful for me to watch the HDTV Shows I miss the previous night when other things are ON at same time or busy doing something else. Looks great on my Dual 24-inch monitor setup here both sound and picture... Might be wave of the future for SAT TV viewing across the country... No SAT Dishes to worry about... Who knows... Roy Ken

RE: No Running Lights

I carry one of these 7-way testers that has the small LEDs on it in my tool box. This tells me the truck side is doing what it is suppose to do... Then I know for sure it is on the trailer side... This plugs into the 7-way receptacle on the back of the truck http://www.etrailer.com/merchant2/graphics/00000001/pics/T/R/TR20117.jpg height=300 Google Image All of the DOT safety lights on the trailer are powered up by the truck 12VDC system. Check your truck manual for the different locations for the various fuse panels... I think mine are in three different location... My main is just above the radiator under the hood... I have another one near the glove box inside the truck. I have another one behind the kick panel on the passenger side inside the truck... The fuses for the 7-way and 4-way plugs usually have the word TOW in the description. Roy Ken

RE: Yellow jackets at campground

We have run into them many times camping. They sure know what the sound of opening a coke can is haha... Phissest and here they all come running... Mean little buggers We carry the large can wasp spray with long distant spray nozzle and keep it right inside the door area... Also have an AX handle there as well... Great for bugs and perhaps the two legged type creatures trying to get in your door... Roy Ken

RE: What I saw at the campground.

X2 on Myrtle Beach RV storage lot across the Bypass 17 road... We see them pulling the RV's across the road alot and setting for the folks that own them... They use almost anything they can get their hands on to pull one across the road into Lakewood... Roy Ken

RE: Pump Flojet Quad 4406?

I really helped out in the noise area on my water pump by making sure none of the lines were up against anything and also placed a piece of carpet under the pump... Helped out big time for me... I was going to buy one of those in-line one quart tanks for it but never did after I got it quietened down... Both listed on the same page on AMAZON... Roy Ken

RE: Motorcycle on back of Fifth wheel

The bumpers on the trailers are well known to not be very strong and not a good weight load. These should be re-engineered and welded into the frame to be safe for almost any additional load you might want it to handle. I think the were only designed to safely hold up a single spare tire... Check out one of these IDAHO TOTE with swivel wheels which is NOT considered a trailer but rather an attachment to the trailer. I have seen both the two wheel types and single wheel type. I would think the two wheeled attachment platform would be the best to use. Being attached to the rear of the trailer makes for a very easy back up routine with the swivel wheels... Check with your local State DOT Safety office to get all the info how these are allowed in your home state. This of course will add to your overall trailer length... http://www.cruiserlift.com/sitebuildercontent/sitebuilderpictures/.pond/bounder58.JPG.w300h225.jpg height=400 http://www.cruiserlift.com/sitebuildercontent/sitebuilderpictures/.pond/bounder58_1.JPG.w300h225.jpg height=400 https://i.ytimg.com/vi/jVBMWPN18sI/hqdefault.jpg height=400 http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b298/professor95/P7070238.jpg height=400 All Google Images Roy Ken

RE: Anyone using a Bakflip cover on a short box?

I use the FOLD-A-COVER hard plastic panels on my truck bed... Every thing stacks up on behind the rear window. Is lockable and if you take care of the seals they don't leak... I have transferred my setup between three trucks now... http://i.imgur.com/g0FXo1o.jpg height=300 http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v479/ClaeTA/Tacoma%20pics/P1170748.jpg height=300 http://www.truckaddons.com/images02/exterior/foldacover/2.jpg height=200 http://www.autotrucktoys.com/dodge_dakota/images/Dodge-Dakota-Mopar-Hard-Folding-Tonneau-Cover-A.jpg height=200 Google images Sure keeps thing out-of-sight... Should clear the fifth wheel hitch just fine... Roy Ken

RE: camper specific manuals

Sometimes I have good luck with just searching on GOOGLE for the model number followed by the word MANUAL... The manuals are not going to be to much detail and are written for many models with just a few changes... The best thing to have is the individual manf spec sheets for all of the accessories and appliances etc... Roy Ken

RE: Undercover Swing Case Tool Box

I always thought something like this was a great layout for truck bed storage boxes... http://www.800toolbox.com/5thwheel/5th_wheel_tool_box-5.jpg height=400 Google Image My truck bed uses the FOLD-A-COVER brand hard folding panels which would work just fine with the above shown type boxes with the fifthe wheel hitch. the hard folding panels will stackup behind the truck rear window and not interfere with the fifth wheel hitch operation... http://i.imgur.com/g0FXo1o.jpg height=400 Google Image Then when you have your fifth wheel setup at the camp site you can totally enclose your truck bed for more security for storage of things...
