RE: Retirement Trip

It's been a while, but we also used Cherry Hill because of it's proximity to DC and access to the Metro. No, no wilderness "ambiance" but it doesn't sound like you plan to hang out in the CG all that much. Sites are snug, and there will be a bit of noise from the highways.

RE: use of interior portable heater during storage

I would use one only if: - I'm around to check it almost daily - I'm taking camping trips in winter and need the coach to be ready to use - There's enough heat to protect all the lines (unlikely) and the power it draws doesn't heat up any extension cords (likely) - I've drained the lines Same here - I'd do this only if I anticipate leaving on a trip in the VERY near future during the winter months, otherwise it is just a waste of energy. Trailer is winterized, regardless.

RE: Goofy Garmin Directions

Our trip planning always starts with paper maps, and those same maps go with us when we leave. Our current Garmin unit has been good. The one we had previously was goofy after we did the update. I thought it was just me but this thread suggests otherwise. The most useful features to me are the arrival time and the ability to see the map and names of cross-streets while underway. It never fails - the cross-streets that are important almost never have a sign....... JMHO

RE: Wisconsin Dells

We also used Wisconsin Dells KOA. None of the CG's in the area will be cheap, but I think the KOA has everything you're looking for except the concrete slab. Enjoy & safe travels.

RE: Tips on buying a new TT

Find a floor plan you like that will work for you. This is always my #1 line when folks as me - so envision how you plan to use this unit. Weekends? One to two weeks at a time? Extended trips? Imagine how your family "lives" from day to day and get the floorpan that works. We did this and it helped narrow the field considerably. Enjoy & happy hunting!!

RE: Gettysburg

Drummer boy campground is nice Drummer Boy knocked themselves out of the "top CG in Gettysburg" category at our last stay there, in 2007. The corporate machine took over - prices went up and quality of service (counter staff, cleanliness of facilities, maintenance of utilities, etc. ) went down. Just sayin'.

RE: Leaving this forum, I've seen enough.

I have the choice to read or pass. I pass a LOT. Pretty much describes why I no longer visit the Tow Vehicle category of this Forum and over all comment much less now than I did in the past. As to whether this Forum is better or worse than before will always be a subjective question.

RE: For those who are not aware, Propane tank expiration.

Around here places that re-certify cylinders are getting rare; I finally found a welding supply outfit that does it. I'm left with little choice in my case (and maybe some of you) since the cylinders in our TT are designed to lay down (horizontal) while in use and have proprietary brackets welded on the cylinder for clamping down when in place. It's worth some phone calls - unless these places get patronized they will eventually disappear altogether.

RE: TX High School football - playoffs

As frequently happens, off the field management thinks in dollars and cents - counting revenue from the games. Unfortunately, most of those directors have no clue what it means to kids when this kind of predictable upset happens. Many of the directors hold the idea it's a horse race, and keep the blinders in place ... This kind of thinking is pervading PA leagues, too.

RE: Unusual or little known sights worth seeing

Desert of Maine, just a bit west of Freeport, ME. Very interesting geological phenomenon and there is a nice little campground right next door. Crater of Diamonds State Park, Murfreesboro, Arkansas If you find any diamonds on your dig, you keep 'em (we didn't). Great CG within the park. Collier Memorial State Park, Chiloquin, Oregon. I almost hesitate to list this as it was perhaps the most peaceful, unspoiled park we've every been in. Within the park is a very interesting lumbering museum devoted to the logging industry of the Pacific Northwest.

RE: Going to the Dark Side

Welcome! Won't be long and you'll wonder why you didn't come over sooner. The biggest thing I don't miss is cold, damp canvas in the morning. All of the above! You'll enjoy it!

RE: Theodore Roosevelt National Park

Teddy Roosevelt NP - yes! We spent a day in the south unit back in 2009 and wished we could have stayed longer. Enjoy & safe travels.

RE: Is the RV industry is broken? Warranty for new trailers...

It seems the problems are more assembly related than design. Just plain careless assembly and poor quality control. The auto industry tackled the problem decades ago. The domestic auto industry was forced to address the problem when imports started to cut in to the sales of the Big 3. Good thread. Should be required reading for anybody looking to purchase.
