RE: Paper towels

Thanks for this suggestion! Hubby uses them in the garage but now I believe that I will add some to the RV!

RE: West of Chicago/Wicker Park area

Try looking here at Forest Preserves of Cook County. There are a couple that have hook-ups. One of them is near Palatine which is somewhat close to Schaumburg. Hope this helps you.

RE: Where to go in September, maybe October

We are originally from Michigan and family is still therein the lower peninsula. Retired now and we have traveled twice in October. Last year we traveled to the Upper Peninsula around October 10 and the fall colors were absolutely breathtaking. The weather was fair, not hot at all and not too hot. We will travel there again this fall, too.

RE: Just an observation

When we traveled up to Michigan in October I noticed many RV transports going south, too!

RE: When to RV in Texas

I have lived in Texas for 37 years. I agree with padredw. The flowers in the spring are not to be missed! Some of our best camping days have been in November, December, February, March and April. Some of those days were cold but most were absolutely beautiful. For us, our camping season is just about to begin. We do not camp during June, July and August as it is usually just too hot.

RE: Frank's Autoformer? Available?

We found some links in searches on Google but when we clicked on those links the domains were for sale. We went with the Hughes. Thanks to all who responded.

Frank's Autoformer? Available?

We have spent the greater portion of today looking at surge protectors and autoformers. The Hughes autoformer is available at several different sites. Frank's autoformer had some features described in various forum posts that my husband liked. We have tried to find a place where we could buy a Frank's but can find no active link. Does anyone know if they can still be purchased? Thanks

RE: Motor Carriers Atlas Questions

Thanks! One of our neighbors used to drive a truck and they now have an RV and I am thinking they might have one I can look at. I didn't think of that before.

Motor Carriers Atlas Questions

We have a Class C with a roof mounted satellite dish and our height is 12'2" I am only familiar with the Motor Carriers Atlas through mentions here on this forum. I like to route us on state and federal and even county highways instead of Interstates. I tried to view pages of the atlas on Amazon but couldn't tell if they provide information, specifically heights on all roads. Can someone tell me before I spend our money on this atlas? Thanks

RE: RVing with Pets

We travel with just one dog. We favor state parks, National Forest Service (NFS) Campgrounds and Corp of Engineer (COE) parks. I search extensively for our campgrounds and I have found a few of those mentioned above with full hook-ups but most have water and electricity only. Most have dump stations available if no individual sewer hook-up. I use recreation.gov for the NFS and COE and the individual state park websites for state parks. Most COE parks just say "domestic pets" allowed. Also, if you are 62 or older you can obtain a senior pass and the cost is half price. I recently booked a full hookup site on a lake in Illinois for just $10.00 per night! Happy and safe travels!

Parking the RV to visit Quilt Co. in Hamilton, MO

Has anyone visited Hamilton, home of the Missouri Star Quilt Company, with their RV? We are stopping there in October and I want to make sure that we can park the RV in the little town while I shop. This has been on my bucket list and my DH is not too keen on it but we will only be there for a couple of hours (that's what I told him!!!). Don't want to get there and find no place to park. 26 foot Class C with no toad Thanks!

Best route Benton, IL to Fort Wayne, IN?

Fall trip late September. I have read where the Indiana roads can be pretty bumpy. Would it be better (On a Thursday) to take IH-57 north to Highway 24 and east across to Fort Wayne OR take IH-70 through Indianapolis to Fort Wayne? We have traveled Highway 24 in Illinois before and realize that it can be stop and go traffic. I like the US and state highways. He likes the Interstates...ugh! Also not sure of any highway repairs or construction around Indianapolis. In our Class C we seem to feel every bump so that is why I ask. We will not be in a hurry.

RE: Lake Irwin

We camped there with our Class B van a couple of times. The road to the campground is pretty bumpy/washboard. If you drive very slowly it is okay. The campground is very popular and reservations can be made through recreation.gov. I believe there are only two walk-in sites. We enjoy driving up in a car and fishing. The last few times we were there we were amazed at how many people were up there. It was pretty noisy. But this was on a weekend. Happy Travels.

RE: How to check electricity at a campground

Thanks, everyone. This information will help us so much. Safe travels...

How to check electricity at a campground

I just read a campground review where the RV-ers checked the electricity at 3-4 sites before they found one that was good. We have been RV-ing for many years. We don't check but I think it is about time for us to do so. I did a search here on the forum but I could not find any posts relating to checking the electricity. I am not using the correct terminology, I am sure. Is this a special meter or something else? I would like your recommendations for one, if possible. Thanks!
