RE: Water Pump Problem Solved!

You could modify the old pump to use to pump water into the fresh water tank if you are boondocking.

Outter Banks to west of Richmond

We will be going to the Outer Banks from Pa in mid May. On the way back,we plan to stop at Pocahontas State park which is west of Richmond, Va. What is the best way to get from 168 to 460 to I-95?

RE: Sedona/ Cottonwood

Agree on Dead Horse Ranch. Don't remember our site number. But you are near Jerome an old mining town. I would recommend visiting Jerome State park and the Douglas Mansion,which was the home of a former mining magnate. And the Gold King Mine is really neat with wild burro's roaming the street begging for food.Tuzigoot is Indian ruins from the 1300 AD. About 20 miles away is Ft Verde and old cavalary post form the 1880's.Many restored buildings.

RE: Awning Replacement - Easy/Hard?

I replaced the fabric on our old trailer a few years ago. It is definately a 2 man job and 3 would be better. I found a video on You Tube on how to do it. Watcedh the video a few times, then did it.

RE: Pa to Ft Worth

What brooks379 the trucker said, except at St Louis, I would head south on I-55 to Memphis, then I-40 to I-30. When you get to Greenville, TX on I-30, take exit 94, then right on US380 west. Then take I-35W south to Ft Worth. Note that in TX they have frontage roads, jug handle turnabouts and I-35W does not mean the road goes west. It means that it is on the west side of town but it goes north and south. Just watch the signs. You do not want to go through Dallas!! 380 is now just traffic light after traffic light, avoid. What part of Pa do you live & again what part of FtWorth will they live ? Our Daughter lived near Allentown for a while & took a route south from there then picked up I20. A few months back we went to Elkhart & went 30 -40-55-57-70. & Ar/Mo interstate just horrible & there were No rest stops open until we got to southwest Ia We live west of Reading. Our sons' address is 2130 Skyline Drive, Ft Worth, Tx 76114

Pa to Ft Worth

Our kids and grand kids are moving to Ft Worth from Pa. We are looking at 2 routes. Mapquest suggestions I-81 to I-40 to I-30. We have been on I-81 and I-40 before. I am looking at I-81 to I-75 to I-59 to I -20. It may be a little longer but we would go through fewer cities. Any comment on the second route.

RE: Planning Fall Trip, Idaho ?

We detoured through a portion of Idaho on the way to Yellowstone. The scenery was beautiful. We went past Island Park Resivoir and Henry's lake. Both had campgrounds that looked like they may have been nice to stay a day or 2. You are very close to Yellowstone so if you haven't been there it's worth a trip.

RE: Lake Ray Roberts, Texas

Paw Paw, thanks for letting me know about Hickory Creek. We love COE campgrounds.It's also closer to where our kids are moving and I can use the America the Beautiful Pass.

RE: Advice on upcoming road trip

Taking the Denali would be a great idea. That way you don't have to take the RV every where you go. It will be easier to find parking spaces for a car than an RV.

RE: Connecticut State Parks - some closed to camping

We had stayed at Hammonasete State park many years ago. Isn't it amazing how government runs out of money to keep up a revenue producing state park but never runs out of money for welfare.

Lake Ray Roberts, Texas

We will be taking a trip to Arizona in May 2018. On the way back, we would like to stop for a day or 2 to see some friends in the Dallas/Ft Worth area. Have any of you stayed at Johnson Branch Campground or any of the other campgrounds on the lake? I have seen some good comments and some negative about the rangers at the lake's campgrounds but there were also some good comments too.Do you believe we would need reservations for a week day in mid May?

RE: East coast camping

If you do go into Canada, Fundy National Park has the biggest tidal change in the world and Cape Breton Highland National park is nice.

RE: Opinions and Advice

I had a GMC Savanah Van with the 5.3 motor.We have a 26ft travel trailer that weighs about 5900 lbs. We went to Yellowstone last May and had no problems pulling it with that motor.You need to learn what your truck is rated to tow, get the correct weight distributing hitch set up with a brake controller. I would suggest doing some short shake down trips to learn the ropes and see if there are any problems before you embark on a long trip.There are many videos that show you how everything works and even how to do repairs. Like others have said, most campgrounds in the warmer parts of Florida get booked real early. If you would just want to stay in South Carolina or Georgia ,you'll have more luck, although the weather will go from 80's to 30's at times.

RE: Advice on upcoming road trip

Agree too much for 2 weeks. Just do the northern parts.We stayed in Madison campground in Yellowstone. No hookups but centrally located. Yellowstone is as big as the state of Rhode Island so you will do a lot of driving. If you want full hookups, Fishing Bridge is the only campground in the park with hookups. Many people like Grizzly RV park which is in West Yellowstone if you want a private RV park. If you don't have reservations, you may have trouble finding a site especially on weekends.Somenice camopgrounds we stayed at on the way out or back were Long Horn ranch and RV park in Dubois,Wy. Waubonsie State park west of Nebraska City ,Iowa. $16 a night with electric. Olagalla recreation are in Nebraska.$22 with electric on a nice lake.

RE: West Yellowstone south to I80

I would take 26/287 to Dubois and then hit I-80 at Rawlins. There is a nice campground in Dubois called the Long Horn Ranch and RV Park. A few more campgrounds you might like: At Lincoln, jump off I-80 to Nebraska Rt 2. At Nebraska City, stay on Rt 2 into Iowa for about 10 miles and you'll hit Waubonsie State Park. $16 a night for electric.Then go back and get on I-29 south to Rt -36 across Missouri. This is a nice 4 lane highway with a 65mph speed limit. We stayed at Pershing State Park which is right off Rt 36. $19 a night with electric.

RE: Pipestem State Park West Virginia

In my opinion, Pipestem is one of the nicest state parks we've ever been to. They have a nice campground,some full hookups and some electric. But where they really shine is in the amenities. They have horse back riding,boating,fishing, golf and mini golf, archery, nature programs, tennis, indoor and outdoor pools,sauna and 2 restaurants.One you need to take a cable car ride to get to.

RE: midwest rv park with shore fishing

On our trip to Yellowstone last year,we stayed at Olagalla Recreation area in mid state Nebraska. Nice campground under tall trees. Electric hookups and some sites are right on the shoreline.https://nebraskastateparks.reserveamerica.com/camping/lake-mcconaughy-sra/r/campgroundDetails.do?contractCode=NE&parkId=230099

RE: Campgrounds along rt 87 between Mesa and Winslow AZ

Houston Mesa Campground just off 87 in Payson is right off 87. Nice Forest Service Campground. No hookups and if over 62 can use the America the Beautiful pass for half off.No hookups but they have showers and dump.
