RE: Exciting new time coming up for us

That is exciting. That will sure be different not towing back and forth. You could always keep the 26 footer for trips from home. Marcia We are thinking of doing just that. We have it up for sale, but both of us are hoping no one buys it. We have put a lot of extras into it including cabinets everywhere there was unused space, and it is in mint condition Jack L

RE: Dodging hurricane Matthew

For those heading inland in SC, I-26 south bound lanes will be closed to south bound traffic, all the way from the coast to Columbia starting this afternoon. All lanes will be used for evacuation, (per the governor on the news a little while ago). We were going snow birding this morning via I-26 with our first stop on I-95. In a holding pattern now and maybe unload the refrigerator stuff to back in the house. Jack L

RE: How to sell my travel trailer

Dealers may not make to big of a deal. I know lots of people that only search by owner that way all the dealers stuff don't pop up If you're referring to Craigslist, that is a pipe dream in most cases. Every locale that I've searched it seems as if the dealers will post their obvious DEALER ads in the PRIVATE listing section. The local dealer to my house has someone on staff that does nothing but place their entire inventory on Craigslist. One days worth of Craigslist ads will be 98% theirs. And not just rv's as it's the same deal in the cars and truck sections too. Exactly right. I have been looking for a Stand up paddleboard and when I go on "boats" I always type in "by owner" It ends up that most of what comes up is by dealers. Either that or some one with the same phone number has about ten different Paddleboards they are selling ! Jack L

RE: Medicare question

It is not necessary, but we would not be without it. Medicare does not pay all the doctors and hospital bills and the supplement will pick up what they don't cover. For instance, five years ago I had a knee replacement, and the entire cost to me was zero. Also with medicare and the supplement you get to pick what ever doctor you want to go to. If you get an Advantage plan you have to go to just the doctors that are in that plan. Jack L

Overnight Rv park on I-75 either south or north of Atlanta

We will be heading down to Florida within the next few days, (Wednesday, Thursday or Friday) and our normal route is down I-95. We want to go an inland route, (I-75) through Atlanta to miss the hurricane. Can any one recommend a good over night RV park right off I-75 or close to it either just north of Atlanta or just south of it. We would like to be far enough away from Atlanta to be out of the heavy traffic Jack L

Exciting new time coming up for us

After fifteen years of snow birding in the Florida State parks in the Keys and doing the 8:00 AM Reserve America lottery game every morning, booking the next years sites, we are finally through. Not snow birding, but the Reserve America thing. Two years ago we bought a RV site in Key Largo and shortly will be heading down with our 26 foot trailer to John Pennekamp SP. While there we will do our inspection on our new 38 footer, and then pull it into the new site where we will keep it permanently. Then we will transfer our six months of stuff to the new trailer and when done leave Pennekamp. The new site is so close to Pennekamp that we can paddle to it in our kayaks for an ice cream cone once a week if we want to. Lots of logistics worked out with a few more to go, such as do we sell the 26 footer, or store it and then bring it back home next spring. Jack L

Money transaction when selling a RV question

When selling a trailer what is the best way to make the money transaction? I am thinking of cash only at a bank. What is the safest way? I just bought a new one and I will be selling my old one Jack L

RE: Poll

New First a pop up, then a 19 foot trailer , then a 25 footer, and now a 38 footer that will go into permanent site and not be towed. Cash for every one of them just like my vehicles. We both like fresh, clean never before used and fully ours. I remember many years ago when we had to look around for some change to buy a loaf of bread! then along the line the Man upstairs smiled on us. Jack L

RE: We made another one

Congrats ! But we have you beat. We went by our 58th in July. She had just turned 14 and I was 15 when we met ice skating. We went together for six years before we got married. We had six children and then adopted two more. We had many hard times making ends meet, but now we have every thing and there is nothing that we want. We are more in love now then the day we were married, and we thought it couldn't have been any better back then. jack L

RE: Where to place jack when changing flat tire?

I always put mine under the shackle. Never under the frame. You can bend the frame. Jack L

RE: Water Heater Drain Valves..are they worth it?

Why does everyone dislike the plastic plug ? I have had two trailers with them and never have had a problem. I have had each of the trailers for seven years and each year the water heater tank gets drained several times. For those of you who don't do much plumbing, if you overtighten either the plastic or the replacement shutoff metal one you are going to be sadly disappointed when the threads start to leak. Keep in mind that the threads are tapered, and the tighter you try to tighten them, the worse the situation will be. Jack L

RE: Low Life On The Prowl

A couple of thoughts come to mind 1. motion detector lights 2. neighbor hood watch 3. some closed circuit TV monitors and yes; ask the local police or sherriff to have the area patrolled Jack L

RE: Etiquette in Camping

We see it lot of times. Especially with children. That is one of the reasons we never get a site near a restroom and always on the outside of an outer loop. Unfortunately a lot of people are not bringing their children up with manners the way we brought ours up jack L

RE: electric cost

We have an RV site that we have been renting out and we pay the monthly electric bill. In the winter it has been rented out every day. Some times to 30 amp rv'rs and other times 50. and the bill is usually right around $60 per month. This is in the Florida Keys jack L

RE: Winterizing house

We live in the high country of NC where many times our weather is similar to Canada. I shut off the water and drain the entire system including the water heater. You need to make sure you have low point drains in any of the sagging pipes. We shut off the refrigerator, but leave the freezer on We have never had a problem with the sumps in the dish washer or the washing machine, or any of the electronics. make sure to leave your shower hose hanging down. Make sure to leave all the faucets open. Make sure to empty the dish washing soap dispenser Do not leave any canned goods or other liquids that might freeze Put pink stuff in all the toilets and their water tanks after draining them and in all the sink and shower traps. jack L

RE: Unhooking

Pull the pin on the receiver, drive forward. Ball might have rust or a gouge making it hang up in the couple? This is exactly how I have to remove mine. Pull the pin after releasing the latch. then just pull forward. Jack L

How hard is it to remove the black and gray tanks !

I am putting a new 38 foot long trailer on a permanent site and am thinking of removing the black and gray tanks and plumbing the waste permanently. Naturally I would need to put in a residential toilet. Has any one done it, and can you walk me through the steps? Jack L
