RE: Newbie question - Winterize or not

You say "average", but all it takes is one night with a hard freeze and you'll wish you had winterized. I have a 25 foot travel trailer and it only takes me ten minutes and one gallon of the pink stuff. I don't waste my time blowing out the lines. Pumping pink stuff through them will take care of that.

RE: Winterizing Atwood Water Heater

AND do yourself a favor and go out and buy a couple replacement drain plugs to keep on board the RV you'll be needing them. Those cheap plastic plugs cross thread and the head easily gets stripped from taking it out. The plugs don't "cross thread" -- People cross thread them. In ten years of trailing and draining the heater several times a year. I have never had a problem with my plug. All that it takes is a little bit of care and not tightening it too tight.

RE: Ocala Natl. Forest at Thanksgiving

The Bears will be less and less, Florida is having bear hunt for the first time in 20 years. It started this morning and will continue for 7 days. I read they only sold 360 or so licenses. Enjoy your camping trip. They sold over 3000 permits which is about the bear population. They said the were stopping it at 320. FYI Salt Springs is FHU but no cell service. Silver River State Park is open for camping. The water park is closed until next spring. There is cell service there. Alexander and Juniper are no hook ups and spotty cell service. Silver Springs SP campground is only open for walk-ups on a first ccome first serve basis. You can't reserve it through Reserve America at this time. they are doing renovations

RE: Ocala Natl. Forest at Thanksgiving

If you are into canoeing or kayaking; Juniper Springs is the very best. There is a National Forest Camp Ground there, but I don't know if you can fit a motor home in the sites The spring run is like being in The Garden of Eden and there is also swimming at the head spring. I have canoed and kayaked in every spring run in Florida and I like the wilderness Juniper Springs the best Alexander Springs is another that is similar. The Silver River used to be awesome, for it's entire length, but now the state has ruined half of it, and after the first several miles it is no longer clear. The Silver Springs State Park is closed to camping right now There is a very nice private RV park with full hookups, (Wilderness RV Resort) close to the above that is right on the Withlacoochee River near where the Silver River Enters it Jack L

RE: Roof screw holes repaired by Dicor???

If it was me, that is exactly how I would have repaired the hole. Putting fabric over a screw hole is overkill in my estimation Jack L

RE: Need advice on Fla. this winter

Call some of the places in the Florida Keys. One that I like is Key Largo Kampground on Key Largo. They have some nice pull through sites. They also have two small private sandy beaches along with a beautiful large swimming pool Go on line a pick a few and then just give them a call The Keys have the warmest weather in Florida Jack L

RE: 1st time snowbird

We'll be there for five months. - heading down in two weeks. Bouncing back and forth between the state parks. Most of the time except when a front comes through we'll be out paddling our kayaks in that crystal clear water Jack l

RE: Florida Keys in Winter

Check out Key Largo Kampground on Key largo They have two small private sandy beaches, and a large swimming pool It is gaited and they have lots of amenities as well as their own private canal with a boat ramp. It is right next to John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park. It is also only an hour from The Everglades National Park We love it. Jack L

RE: What is the name of the NC mountain chain where I am at?

Now that we have determined they are the Appalachian chain of mountains, how do you pronounce the name? Up here in Ohio I often here it pronounced appa-lay-shun During my time in the Southern Appalachians I learned to pronounce it appa-latch-un Up north it is pronounced Appalay-- Down south it is pronounced Appalatch-- jack L

RE: What is the name of the NC mountain chain where I am at?

The DW and I are from the other side and we found the Appalachian Range absolutely unbelievable. We have entirely different type of fauna and different mountains, the BRP was an unforgettable experience. While our ranges are taller, I found that the detour we were forced on to was the steepest, windiest road I have ever been on. Yes you have mountains, beautiful but different from ours in the West. Come visit ours but don't expect them to be the same. We have been to all the mountain ranges. East, West and Alaska. We describe our eastern ones as "friendly" and the western ones as "sharp". We love them all and feel blessed to live in this beautiful country Jack L

RE: What is the name of the NC mountain chain where I am at?

Those are the Blue Ridge mountains you see off in the distance. While they are in the Appalachian Mountains. They are the largest chain. They are just called the Blue Ridge mountains just to separate them from the other smaller sections included in the Blue Ridge chain. like the Smokey Mountains. Pisgah, and Shenandoah. I know I am biased. But the truth is. the Blue Ridge Mts are the coolest in the summer, and coldest in the winter. The highest peak East of the Mississippi is located in the Blue Ridge MT. And if you want to camp. There is a Campground every where you look up there. But you got to be ready to climb the hill. No interstates lead you there from Hickory. Best way to go is 321, or 16. You live less than an hour from the BRP and some of the prettiest views in the world. A day trip to go ride the Parkway is such a relaxing getaway. Close enough just to go camp for the weekend, and be there, and setup by dark on Friday after work. Go explore. You are not biased! You are correct! And if I may add a bit; that highest mountain is Mt Mitchell and it actually is part of the "Black Brothers" which are six mountains all over 6000 feet. You can drive to the top and then take a trail that goes over all six peaks Jack L

RE: What is the name of the NC mountain chain where I am at?

You are looking at the Blue Ridge Mountains We live up here in "God's Land" Take a ride up right now and drive along the Parkway. In the thirty years we have lived here , right now has the most beautiful colors I have every seen. Go up 321 and turn south on the parkway. Head toward Grandfather Mountain, and ooh and aah as you come to the viaduct! No pictures or paintings in the world can do it justice! We were up there in Price Lake on Sunday paddling our solo canoes jack L

RE: Long key State park FL.

Thanks for the response, I was beginning to think no one had been there. He can also fish right from his RV site. Just wade out in the water and cast. I is a wonderful place. Each site has trees and shrubs between it and the next and each site backs up to the Atlantic. Unfortunately, the ocean has been rising in that area over the years, and now at high tide there is only a foot or two of beach between the high tide line and the tiny foot high dune. We launch our kayaks right from in front of our site jack L

RE: Long key State park FL.

Yes we use Long Key every winter and will be there again this year. When he leaves the park tell him to turn left and peddle less than a mile on the paved bike path to a long bridge that has a wide biking and walking section that goes all the way across. It even has special juts outs made just for the fishermen. He also can rent a kayak at the park and fish from it. Jack L

RE: Brand New Rig!

Congrats and best of luck with it. We went from tenting to a small pop-up and then to a 19 foot TT. Six years ago we went to a 25 foot TT and absolutely love it. We now snow bird in it for five months in the Florida Keys and it is all we want. The only time I would ever go bigger is if we put it on a permanent lot and didn't haul it. Jack L

RE: Atwood WH Drain Plug

My Atwood is 7/8" Don't use any Teflon tape. Mine now is six years old and I have never had a problem with it. Just snug it up and don't over tighten it. Jack L

RE: Fire Alarm Sensitivity

It might not be the smartest thing we've done, but ours set off for almost everything. I pulled the batteries. I did the same thing. I guess if you had a large RV/trailer, and it was far away from the stove it would be ok, but having it installed almost directly over it just caused ours to go off every time we used the stove or oven. jack L

RE: Just Confirming I winterized correctly.

Two things: 1. Did you run it through your shower. Then leave the shower hose hanging down 2. Did you put a bit in your city water inlet. There is a check valve in there and it will freeze and break if you didn't. I usually use an eyedropper and squirt a bit in from the outside Jack L

RE: Who is going South this Winter?

We have snow birded in the Florida Keys for the past ten years and love it. Every year we leave our NC mountain house earlier. This year we will be leaving in the end of October, and coming back in April. If you want nice weather, the Keys are the place to go Jack L
