RE: Forts visited or worth visiting

Two of my favorite, although they are very different: Fort Schuyler, SUNY Maritime College, Bronx NY SUNY Maritime my alma mater. 19th Century harbor fortification to protect NYC. Used today as Maritme Museum and classroom space. Excellently preserved. Open to the public. Saint Marie among the Hurons, Midland, ON Canada Fort Saint Marie This is more a stockaded settlement than an actual fort but it does have walls and there were battles fought here.

RE: 2015 NASCAR camping thread

Ok. Firmed up my plans for Pocono Raceway. Doing the first NASCAR 400 in June and the Indy in August. Sorry we won't meet up this time Eyegor. No sweat. You're getting to the track twice and I'm considering myself lucky to get their once. I'll be looking forward to how Indy goes. I'm glad to see them back at Pocono after many years, and hope it does well for everyone; teams, spectators, and the Mattioli family.

RE: I need y'alls help

You say you are going to have a generator. Watch electric heaters or blankets. Electric heating elements start using up available wattage pretty quick. In cold weather camping it not only is important to stay warm but to stay dry as well. As a few others have suggested I wouldn't do anything to reduce ventilation on your Copper Canyon. The increased condensation isn't worth it. I finally retired my Timberline after 20+ yrs and always used just the rain fly, even in the cold. More insulation under you is always the way to go. Last word on condensation. If use any of the "space" type blankets, make sure they are vented as well. They hold moisture even better than they do heat. I love winter camping. No crowds and no BUGS.

2015 NASCAR camping thread

I thought I would start a thread for all of us who will be taking our rigs to the track(s) this year. Hopefully, we can all learn some tips and tricks. I'll start it off and we'll see how it goes. I'll be at Pocono for the 2nd race this season. 6/29-7/2. We'll be staying outside Turn 3/Front stretch in the Family Grandstand section. This will be my rookie season for camping AT a NASCAR event. Couple years ago when we came to the races we stayed at the track owned Pocono Speedway Campground about a mile down the road.

RE: Parking Lot Ethics

While it is correct that there is very few hard and fast rules, there is in fact acceptable etiquette. Not every one who overnights at Wally adheres to them but they do exist. They are like the "unwritten rules" that govern many things in a polite society. If you do nothing else, please go in and introduce yourself to the manager on duty. It also helps if you happen to have a recent purchase in your hands. If they don't allow overnight parking, s/he will let you know. Likewise, if there is a specific area they would like you to park, or not park, they will let you know. Using this strategy, I've on occasion been given go ahead to stay, even at Wallys that were posted No Overnight Parking. Not often, but it does happen. The alternative is to take your chances with the O'dark hundred knock on the door. One last tip, since Walmart's corporate policy is to be welcoming to their RV customers whenever possible, many lots will have their more distant parking slots outlined with white paint, while the majority of the spots will be yellow. In theory these are the spots where RVs or employees are supposed to park, leaving the closer spots for other customers. Just a little tip. Take it or leave it as you choose. We all use our RVs a little differently. That freedom is big part of RVing.

RE: 5th Wheel Guy going to Class C General Questions

There are a whole new bunch of smaller Class A models being produced by the manufacturers. I feel you lose some liveable space due to the driving area in a Class C. The driving area in a Class A becomes part of the living room when parked. I would choose one of these smaller Class A models over a Class C. While I too am intrigued by the newer small Class As, not all the Class C designs waste the cab space. For example my old rig has swivel seats in the cab which we use to extend the seating when parked. Likewise, the new Promaster cabs come with swivel seats as well. These examples are not the norm though, most units do not use these seats effectively when parked. You have to look for them.

RE: Parking Lot Ethics

There are Yahoo groups specifically tailored for "Wallydocking" that you might want to take a look at. In short: Generally only 1 night stays, no awnings or camp furniture, don't unhook trailers or toads, keep slides in unless absolutely necessary. Everyone's opinions differ but I would simply camp in the van and not use the tent while in the parking lot.

RE: Driving a Class C on Snow and Ice

The nice thing about driving a Class C in slippery conditions is ... the tremendous weight on all six tires gives them better driving traction, steering traction, and stopping traction than lighter weight vehicles. (i.e. My unloaded 4X4 pickup in slippery conditions can wind up being downright scary and dangerous.) The bad thing about driving a Class C in slippery conditions is ... the tremendous weight on all six tires makes them insanely more dangerous than lighter weight vehicles if things get out of control. It's can take a delicate balancing act to drive a Class C in slippery conditions. Now ... driving a Class C in soft-surface conditions is a another ball game all together. +1. My 24ft Class C handles very similar to the Type 3 modular ambulances I've operated for over 25 years. The weight is your friend, until it isn't. If the DOT is recommending chains, GET THEM. Otherwise, don't be afraid to use your weight, wider stance, and torque to your advantage. Crawl over the ice and you will be fine. Don't stop. Now, if we are talking soft snow, you won't be going to far. The dually will want to float instead of dig in and you will spin easily. Ice vs. snow are two completely different animals.

RE: Where would you mount CB antenna on Class C

Like Gary, I've got the CB AM/SSB antenna mounted to the left front fender on my C. Unlike the pros I am lazy and just used my mag mount. On my older Ford, there is enough flat space on top of fender for the magnet to get a good grip. My SWR runs about 2.6 so not great, and I suspect there is a a huge radio shadow to the rear of the rig but I deal with it OK. Most of the time, I'm looking for reports from folks up ahead of me anyway.

RE: Putting MH insurance "to sleep"???

Thanks everyone for the replies. I too, worry about snow load, falling tree, etc. but the savings seem fairly hefty. Thankfully no loan to worry about on a 27yr old unit. Not worth too much $$$$ market value but priceless to us. Interesting thought about the MH being covered by homeowners when parked in driveway. Looks like I have 2 agents to call (auto + home)

RE: shelter/cover for Chalet "A frame"

Assuming the parking area is paved or well graded simply wheel the camper under the shell and position it by hand. I've rarely met a PUP or an Aliner that I couldn't move solo. Of course this doesn't apply to everyone, but I'm sure you could find a helping hand or two if necessary.

Putting MH insurance "to sleep"???

Does anyone have experience with putting the insurance on their rig to sleep or otherwise have it "active" only 6-8 months out of the year? The last few years it didn't matter because we were using our rig every month or so year round. Situations change and we anticipate the rig staying parked until the warm weather returns to NY. All thoughts and ideas / tips appreciated. Thanks. P.S. We have the policy through GEICO along with our other vehicles.

RE: Knoebel's & Surrounding Area.....

The Hershey factory tour and museum are on opposite sides with ZooAmerica in between. These are mostly seperated from but adjacent to the park itself. It can be done in a couple hours or take all day. Depends on your style.

RE: Best RV parks near Washington, D.C. and New York City?

The standard answer for NYC is usually Liberty RV park in NJ. It is really just parking with hookups but it is VERY convenient to Manhattan. There are some RV parks north of NYC in Westchester, Orange, and Ulster counties but they are quite a hike into the city. For DC I like the Washington, D.C. KOA in Millersville, MD. It has your choice of small wooded sites up to open pull-thru sites. The staff is very friendly and helpful. They also have a shuttle into D.C.

RE: Towing from Belfast, ME to Hudson Valley, NY

I-87 "the Northway" runs straight thru the heart of the HV. South of Albany it is a toll road. Can't help too much north of there.

RE: Quick Q: Charging house battery question on a 2004 Winnie

When drycamped, we can periodically charge our coach batteries three ways: Using the built-in generator, using a small portable generator we carry along, or using the engine alternator with the main engine very quietly idling. Warning thread hijack: As the rare MH owner who does not have an omboard genny, the fact that you also carry a small portable with you intrigues me. I have a tiny 600w Yamaha that I sometimes bring but don't think I would bother if I had an onboard. What are the advantages to carrying both? Somehow, it looks like the quotes got reversed.

RE: Buying a used C class in central NJ, tips? (~30K)

There is the Central NJ RV show this weekend. Looks like it is Exit 116 off the GSP. Looking at the website I think it is going to be at most only a couple dealers, but should have a good selection. Most will be new, but the sales folks will also know what is sitting on the lot back home too. And you can't beat the admission price. click here P.S. I don't have any connection to this event. I was thinking of attending myself.
