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.

RE: First-Time Popup Owner

I love this thread. Although I am very content with my old Class C we almost spent the same amount of cash on a new PUP or hybrid. DW had other ideas though. In the long run she is probably right, and I'm sticking to that;)

RE: Where'd You Start?

Me: backpacking tent 87 24' Class C (3 years ago) If you count my family, I grew up camping and RVing and we slept in everything from the back of a pick-up to a 36ft Class A and everything and style in between, including several different tents. And the progression was nowhere near linear. We always had the tents but the RVs were something like: TC 22' TT PUP 33' fiver 36' Class A TC

RE: Good Sam roadside assistance

My experience has always been good with approx. 4-6 uses over the past few years.
