RE: Replacing Minnie Winnie Cabover

I ordered my 'C' new in 2003. When it came in, the dealer arranged a walk through. Not only did they suggest that I bring someone along so that two sets of ears were listening, they pointed out that they would be removing the cab over clearance lights and re-sealing around them. They told me that they're installed at the factory with power screwdrivers and sometimes hairline cracks form around the lights from being over tightened. Eleven years, and dry as a bone. It helps that nobody sleeps in the cabover. Just because its long enough and wide enough to hold two adults, doesn't mean that it can handle overweight adults. Even though I could be considered overweight, I prefer to think of myself as under tall.

RE: Any Champagne experts?

If the cork hasn't dried out, they will be fine.

RE: Job offers to Canadians

Sounds like the Nigerian scammers are spreading their wings. They really should find somebody who's first language is English.

RE: Decent budget-friendly FHU RV parks in Florida?

For this winter? Good luck. For starters, "budget friendly" and "along the coast" were booked last year. And every retired RVer east of Oklahoma already has reservations. Nobody goes to Florida in the summer unless they enjoy sweating. Your only hope for this year is a CG well off the beaches and away from Orlando. You might get lucky along the panhandle of Florida. I found a KOA in Bagdad, FL. east of Pensacola and 20 miles from the Gulf beach one year. People were walking on the beach, but they were wearing light jackets. Nobody was in the water. If you choose that option, while you're there, find a beachfront park you like and make a reservation for next year.

RE: Camping or Christmas Shopping?

Neither. Too cold to camp. And I'm single with no living relatives, so no Christmas shopping. Although I'm getting to the age where I could buy myself a gift on Christmas Eve, have it wrapped, open it on Christmas morning and be surprised.

RE: Rear Corner or Fixed Bed?

If you get one with a fixed corner bed, practice making your bed at home while you're in it. And if you're a couple, and the one against the wall needs to use the facilities at night, they have to climb over the one sleeping next to the aisle.

RE: Utility trailer conversion to an RV trailer!!

I saw one in a CG in Cody, WY. It was a big utility trailer. The front half was living quarters and the back half was for a small car. Or even two, but they only had one. The back wall was the ramp for loading the cars. They were towing it with a semi tractor. As long as it was, I'd think their choice of CGs would be limited.

RE: RV Vacation Rental Trade for Transporting Used RV?

There are companies that transport RVs for a living. El Monte and Cruise America come to mind. Otherwise, everyone would have to buy their RV at the factory. They have the proper liability insurance and use drivers with a commercial license. And the drivers can't use any of the facilities while in transit. That's one of the reasons that you see those units parked in motel parking lots. You're potential liability isn't worth it.

RE: RV disposal...

There's a salvage yard near where I live that stores them on their property and parts them out on a do it yourself basis. You bring your own tools, remove the part(s) you need and pay on the way out. At some point down the road, they put what's left in a car crusher and haul it away to be melted down. They don't pay the owner very much, but an RV is really hard to throw away and they know it.

Just sitting here horsing around on RV.Net and watching the tube via Dish Network. I spotted a choice on Dish called "Replacement Female Auction" on the Rural channel. Worth a look. Darned if it wasn't all about cattle. :)

RE: Feeling pretty good about KOA Wilmington NC

That's good to know. On my way from Colonial Williamsburg south to Myrtle Beach, I've always gone back to I-95. And it will give me a chance to see how dismal the Great Dismal Swamp really is. :)

RE: Camping? When did you start.

I was probably about 6 or 7. Started tent camping with my parents in the Smokey Mountains. One evening when my Mom was cooking dinner on a Coleman stove, a bear came through the CG. My Mom grabbed the skillet full of frying chicken, jumped in the car and locked it. Wouldn't even let me and my Dad in. The bear was just passing through. Ignored everybody in the CG.

RE: credit card limit

I carry a MC and a VISA. Before I hit the road in the RV I call the number on the back of the card and tell them when and where I'll be traveling. It doesn't eliminate all of the automatic pump stops, but it helps at some places.

RE: Cleaning out camper

I learned over time that there's no room for tools I don't know how to use or table service for eight. I'm single and there's no place to store dirty dishes, so I wash what I use and put them away. My tool box contains duct tape and a can of WD-40. If it moves and it shouldn't - Duct tape. If it doesn't move and it should - WD-40. (old joke) Not quite true about the tool box, but I did remove the complete set of metric sockets and wrenches.

And the nice part is that you remain anonymous. :)

RE: Here,s a good one for you

Cardinal rule when camping. If you're wrong, apologize and forget it. If you're not wrong, just forget it. Some folks just aren't happy until they're telling somebody else what to do. Sounds like those folks need to pick a different hobby. I bet their neighbors at home are glad they're on the road.

RE: Mountain Driving in West Virginia

Here's the link to the West Virginia Turnpike website. 77 is a toll road through West Virginia. The tolls are reasonable, and depend on what you're driving. Its all explained on the link above. Including the fact that they only accept cash - no debit/credit cards. You can also check the site for weather conditions just before you leave home. Its a beautiful drive. Although I haven't had the opportunity to try it yet I am sure they will take ez pass. I will know for sure shortly as I will be heading to Fla. Near Xmas. Yes, they take EZ Pass. Says so on the link I provided.
