Sounds like a lot for two wks. but a great trip, I'd skip Booth Bay (save for return if time) Go to Bar Harbor Campground, right near own,and int. to park, They have buses that pick up right at CG, take you everywhere, Mtr. Hme. in town would be tight (although they hav some RV parking) Look up CG on int. no revervaions, just go in pick out your site, then reg. Lobester shack right aross the street @ CG. I think the only place you might need rev. will be @ Fundy Nat. park, I'd rec. to stay at Head Quaters CG, esp with out toad. They have a heated salt water pool, nice. @ HQ you will be near every thing, inc town (Alma) where you will see tides. HQ has sites with hook ups, also with out, need rev. for hookups (I go without 3 nts) Stop a flower pots on way out.
The kids will like ovens, prk has CG can pan for gold on beach (I'd do rev)
Bras d'Or is closet to Badeck town, don'tn think rev needed much in advance, call on way nifn late, take car over caot trail All day trip, good fish resturant on way up (ask CG owner John?Betty for name) stop at K. Lodge, and take a trip up to meat cove for view. (don't go if day is cloudy, U'd be in them) A ll day trip from Baddack to fort a Louisburg, great (take swat shirts-cool outhere) MacLouds CG is tops, right on water, If camping @ Cheticamp St. Piere CG, on C-camp Ise., (call- most sites small, but have overflow) Hike up to top of hill, watch eagles. Old shipyad would B for me, very interesing.
Another great place is St Martins small town w/ two CG's (1st one is best) caves in rock from tides, scenic drive w/ lookoff's (new road) two eating places in town, CG rev. not necceary. You can stop at ST John reversing fall, big p-lot, U can turn around in. (In my opinion I'd skip Mag Hill hard to get Mt. HM. in. T-Trap)
Note take your time on road into Fundy, Shipyd & ST Mart. might be bumpy. When I travel w/my G-kids I stop a-lot (2 Hrs) or thy get grumpy. If I think of anything Ill post. Have a geat trip, if you see a JAY Whitehalk / a Red Sox plate on back say Hi.
You may want to look at the travel groups as we went about five yrs ago. We set up in the football parking lot on other side of town (Fantasy tours) Inc. was train pass back and fourth to stampede at any time, bus trip to parade with rev. seats in shade, trip to zoo, and trip to another amusment type park, was interresting, two diner meals. We were camped in a parking lot at the stadeim with ele. and water lines run to units with two pump outs during the wk. Inc. was stampede pass, and tickets to night rodeo with show. We never moved the TV all the time there. There were over a hundred RV's there, butn I will say not many with young kids. All & all I'd go that rt. again, a fun wk.
The bolts that hold the unit down can become loose, keep them tight so as not to have rain water or codensate leak into RV. Also keep the air filter clean - keep dust from getting on coil. Coil can be hard to clean.
When you get yo Hershey, you can stay in RV park right in town,BUT a train goes through a night, so I'm staying at the KOA< both are a good location to visit Amish. Hershey has Amusment park, factory tour, may only be WK. ends in spring, factory is not real factory but nice (they make H bars in Mex. now) My #1 would be a day (full) at Gettesburg, take a car tour w/ CD or tape, go early see Mus. with map 1st, take all day. From PA to Boston, cross the Tappenze bridge in NY then up to 684 to 84 therough Conn. to Mass Pike R90, and 495 around Boston, two CG's 25 mi from city, Normandy Farms (direct south) and further down is a KOA in Middleboro on RT 44 off 495 towards an near Plymouth (another place to visit)and close to Cape Cod. If you want to camp on the cape Peters Pond is close to ferry;s in Falmouth. (Go to the vineyard 1st short ferry ride, leave car in lot, take bus tour, NT. is a long boat ride you may find MV in all you need. (DO NOT drive to cape on Fri, or come back on Sun - traffic) The best way to Maine from CC is to go back 495 to Normandy farms take trip to Boston via bus ? get info. then continue 495 around city to NH and 95 toBar Harbor. Some people will go north RT 3 to 95 around city to NH, some go Rt3 to 93 through city, not a good idea always traffic, and a big tunnel you are not allowed in. (but people do) When in the great sae of Maine you might want to stop in Freeport @ LL Beans And shops drive right into town RT 1 N turn right at LLBean to parking (some RV's overnite) At Bar Harbor are two KoA's that look nice ($$) I stay at Bar Harbor CG as the road goes to the left towards the town, its close to town and right near Park gate, has a Lobster shack right next to it. You can drive to town with truck, don't take RV. there are CG in park not good for TT's also roads have low bridge. You want to drive up Cad. Mount. eazy drive nice view, stop at Ec.lake, view is nice, has resturant. Road around park is mostly one way, so you can look around as you drive. Park has all info you need. They also have Bus stops at all CG etc, (free) that you can take, brings you everywhare.
I'n not sure about Rt. to NY through NH, & VT, I'll look and see and et back.
PS please forgive my spelling, ck don't work
Tire shops ??? - The guy jacks up my truck, heads for the fake nuts on the hub caps wth his air gun, stoped him befor he tore it apart. Worked in a shop long time back, saw some dum stuf. Any time I changed tires I take two at a time to the shop, but useing the spare I only take one wheel off at a time. Tighn myself withthe right torque all around.
In the last "7" yrs, I went from a Jayco Eagle TT, to a Keystone Sprinter to a Jayco Whitehalk Super-Lite, you can guess the one I like best, although all the things that go in a unit are about the same, Keysong dos a much better job in plumbing. (I find jayco does a sloppy job running water pipes, and use plastic pex fittings, keysone use a compresion type and do a better job of running water pipe.) Jayco's wood work and cabnet work is above Keystone's. The blow up bed is used by both, the mattress can some times be cold, the one in the sprinter lost air and Key. was quick to replace it. The porcelisn tolet in theKey. would not hold water, they fixed once, then they replace it, after it hapened again I cleaned the rubber seal ane put mineral oil on it, worked greatI think Jayco has better carpet, better cushings, deff. a better sofa bed. The frames are both made by Lippet, but the Jayco loks like its better made. Both units are nice, whitchever you get have fun, camping is great.
Ya, when I had A POP-UP 4 kids, mother in law (a great one) plus a dog, things were simple but fun, guitar, canoe and no TV, as they become 17 - 18 yrs, said thinga like, "I really like you guys, but don't want to go a ny more" - Later when buying a big TT with all the good stuf, one of te first questions was "how manny does it sleep" My answer was "TWO" Aw but we had fun, camping is great.
Ive been using a 50' coil hose (safe for drinking) after a while it doen;t coil up verry good. So now I use a 30" length of 3/4" PVC and a bungie. Just drop it on he ground, un hook bunge, and hook up. When un hooking, just , scoop up hose with PVC put on the bungie and off I go, nice and easy.
It is to make the TT ride better and spread out the wt. My first thought was they would cause the tire to wear faster by draging on turns, but all dual axels do that, and TT ST tires don't last that long so I bought the TT.
The skin blew off mine 0n RT95 trip, first I made one from a sheet of clear plastic but it cracked, mad a second one of lauwan plywood (wanted something light) pop riveted on the frame. I worked great, and was nice and light, paint, and looked god. TT was a Wilderness, by Fleewood like the Prowler.
Bought a new Jayco WhiteHalwk TT with a 7,500 loaded weight rat. Down sized from my old 11K TT. My equlizer hitch has 12,000 bars. I also have a Rees hitch wih 8,000 and ,10,000 bars and sway ctl. I Towed new unit home (50mi w/wind, traffic, and trucks, with the 8K bars & sway ctl. it towed behind the F250 Screw V10 like it wasn't there (well not really)
When towing the old unit with the EQ and 12K bars trucks would sneak up beside me with out a sway.
Question is would the EQ with 12 K bars would be too much stress on the TT. I liked the equlizer hitch and then way it perormed when towing.
Thats one thing I looked at when buying a new TT (Jayco Whitehwk-28) has a door that goes in to the ba th from outside, a nice layout that you can get to every part of the unit with slide in. However I"m not a fan of sitting or walking on the slide when the in. So when stoped for lunch etc I put it out a few ft. to level it off.
30 amp fuse (heavyduty) has pwr on both sides, no power to switch on dash, transfer case is not shifting into gear. (drive shaft and axels not turning) looking at size of wireing on switch its not for 30 amps too small about 18 - 20 ga, must be a relay in system somewhere.
Had the same thing happen, it broke off flush with the heater when I tried to remove, got an awl and picked out the rest of the fitting, new addapter and tef. tape all done. Yours looks eazy, I had to lay on top of WH to get at the fitting on mine. Use water pump plyers
