RE: Wheel base to length ratio

I have a HUGE overhang. Drove bad until I put on rear sway bar. No problem now. Edit, Track Bar, not sway bar. Sorry.

RE: Beverly Beach Camptown Florida within Flagler Beach

We used to go there, but stopped several years ago. I had a few issues... 1) you are really packed in , 2) the setup is that you and your neighbor have your awnings facing each other, so you better get friendly as you will be sharing the same patio space,3) the power/voltage was too low. Hovering at just over 100v. The electrical problems may have been addressed in the past few years, but the layout and spacing hasn't.Like the slob that was sharing our awning area a few years ago. He insisted on sitting with his huge belling hanging out, legs spread wide, and wearing short shorts. It was a fabulous way to spend a weekend. Won't go back again.

RE: rv lot and septic

My backhoe man told me couple of grits hired him to dig hole and bury old Cadillac. Questions arose but the grits ran sewer line into the window and turned that old caddy into a septic tank.

RE: Campgrounds Philly?

We are currently at the Campus Park & Ride mentioned a couple of times in previous posts. We have been here on and off for the last year and have had no problems. Sure, it is adjacent to a couple of rough areas but the property, itself, is surrounded by high fences and barbed wire and has a gated entry. Also, since the property is a retired trucking terminal, there is warehouse space accessible from the other side of the property. The new tenants of that space is Customs and Boarder Patrol and, quite frankly, they have added enough cameras (to the entire property) and electric fences to make it appear (from the front of the property) more secure than Fort Knox. By the appearance, someone would have to be crazy to pick this property to target for nefarious purposes. So come enjoy lots of concrete (read: level parking)! Ten minutes to the airport, UPenn campus and hospitals, fifteen minutes to City Center! The shuttle buses that run 24-7 (to the UPenn hospitals) will also get you to the buss and subway lines. There are a couple of downsides... only a few spaces have sewer connections but there is a functional dump station. Second, there is a train yard behind the property. Someone who likes an occasional train horn blow will love it... light or easily irritated sleepers, not so much.This is the best actual desciption I have read. Is there any chance you can take pictures? I have a wheelchair lift on my class a that sticks out about 6' right behind front passenger tire. Will I have enough room? Tks.

RE: Weighing your rv

When in FL I contacted local DOT office and asked for free weighing. They were more than happy to help. Their cruisers carry portable scales in the trunk. In TN, I called local trooper office and asked if I could weigh off-side at local I-81 scale. They told me to come by on a specific Saturday and I was able to run through several times to get side to side weights. I bought a portable scale and weighed several years later and found that my weights didn't really change than much to change the air pressures. I would recommend a 4 corner weight once. If you can't, I really don't think you will find much air pressure difference on the axle. If in doubt, raise your air pressure 10 or 15 lbs until you can get 4 corner weight. You really are/should only worry that one tire will be under inflated for the weight on the axle.

RE: Just an observation re: Ford chassis...

I am 37' with 228 wheelbase. I think mine drives great. I did CHF and then undid it. I didn't see a benefit. I have an extra trac bar on rear and safe-t-plus up front. Micheline XZE tires and still using stock Bilstein shocks. Drives like a Caddy IMO.

RE: driving uphill on gravel driveway

I like what some other said. Make sure you can turn around up top. When going up, DO NOT STOP. If you hesitate and start spinning the wheels at all, STOP. Back down all the way and start over.

RE: Alternatives to luan?

If I recall, I used a sandwich of FRP, plywood (marine) and FRP to rebuild my rotted walls under my front window. It was the exact thickness I needed so I would choose the materials you need to meet the thickness you need and go that route.

RE: Travel with Cats

Funny, I have replied a couple times to a similar post and my advice is still the same. Best solution I ever read was to cut a "cat door" into the steps somewhere and then the litter was in an adjacent compartment. Perfect solution.

RE: Campground Suggestions for Pigeon Forge area??

Pine Mounain RV Park. Our destination too. Several years ago, you could also use the Hotel amenities across the road, but seems there was a change of ownership and that isn't offered. Someone might have an update.You can use pool across street but need to take receipt, stop at front desk, get pass, return pass, etc. etc. etc.

RE: How to run both AC's on a 30 amp site with a 50amp RV

Some guy used to sell these called dual power adapter. I have one installed and it comes in handy to just power that rear ac with it's own cord. The gizmo has it's own small breaker too. I still have all the wiring instructions in case someone needs them. PSRV is out of business.
