RE: Pennsylvania to Yuma using 81 & 40?

We did the I-81 to I-40 once. We now prefer I-70 to I-44 to I-40.

RE: Shanksville, Pa.

There are a few state parks in the area like Shawnee and Keystone. Most Pa State Parks have electric hookups and some have full hookups. Many have new bath houses,swimming etc.

RE: any experience at Wilderness Camp at Disney???

Well you know I just get really tired of campgrounds soaking people for every singe penny they can get. We've been on the road now since May and I will have to say when we find a home, the RV is going away. It's just not what it used to be. My aggravation is charging enough that they should give you a actual ROOM, and then slamming you with more money because you have a pet. The pet DOES NOT cost the campground anything extra. And certainly a cat IN the rv that never comes out costs them nothing.But these campgrounds continue to soak campers.Was curious as to weather this campground searched you vehicle for anything else they can charge you for. Sorry, but I'm on my last nerve trying just to camp without going broke. I agree with the poster who said a night or 2 was enough in this campground. I only wanted to stay there so I could go to the park and get back and forth easily to my dogs who will be in the camper.Well why not stay in public parks if the private parks are so expensive? If you're 62 or older, you can get the Geezer Pass which gives you free admission to all National Parks and Historic sites and half price camping at any federal campground.Many state parks are very reasonable. In Pa,it's $26 a night with electric. 4 years ago,we camped in a South Carolina SP with water and electric for $18 a night.

RE: Refrigerator troubleshoot order?

Try cleaning off the electrode and run a wire or pipe cleaner through the tube.

RE: South East States Camping & Visiting must sees

I would agree on Huntington Beach State park. Some FHU some W&E. Short walk to the beach. Decent camp store.Not too far the Murrel's Inlet and some nice restaurants. In the park you can visit Atalaya which was the home of the former owners of the property. Some mentioned the Blue Ridge Parkway. About 10 miles west of mile marker 18 is Sherando Lake. Nice campground with a lake for swimming.Another good one in Virginia is Goose Point. They have 3 loops,one right on a pininsela with some sites right on the water.

RE: East coast fuel stop questions.....

I don't believe the Flying J at Frystown has separate RV pumps. If depending where you get on 78, there is are 3 gas stations off the 501 exit at Bethel. The Sheets is new and nice but too tight for most RV's.The one on the north side of 78 should be ok.

RE: Yellowstone in mid May

We were there mid May 2016.Great time. Weather was high 50's low 60's during the day. Dropped into low 40's high 30's at night. Crowds were light.No traffic jams.Not everything is open but enough to make it worth while.We stayed in Madison Campground. I would advise reservations.Madison allows generators during certain hours. It is centrally located. Yellowstone is big so staying in the park will save time. Make sure you visit the Inn at Old Faithful. Beautiful lobby and the food was excellent and affordable.We saw a mother grizzly and 3 cubs on the road from Norris to Canyon.The south entrance wasn't open when we came in but was open when we left. There was snow on the ground in the south end of the park and some ice on the lake too. But we felt May was good time to visit.

RE: New at this

And if you're in a major accident with the propane on, you can imagine what could occur. And what you might imagine is likely MUCH worse than reality. When that reasoning is carried to it's extreme it becomes: It is not safe to even CARRY a propane bottle on/in a vehicle. There will not be a major problem unless the system ruptures at or near to the tank, before the first regulator. The odds of that happening are extremely low because of the factors already mentioned. Carry a propane tank that is turned off is a lot safer than having the gas tank wide open and running an appliance with an open flame. If you're in an accident, you're more likely to have a fire or worse . I hear you all saying it rarely happens.As I have explained in my experiences as an electrician. People do stupid stuff all the time.And you may get away with it.But I have seen fires caused by faulty or sloppy wiring. Take a chance if you want. But I still say it isn't a good idea.In fact it's a dumb idea.

RE: California is getting even more expensive

Pa gas tax is 50 cents a gallon. What stinks is it doesn't go all to fix roads.It also pays for the state police. Just like federal gas tax pasy for mass transit and bicycle trails.

RE: New at this

I believe it's dumb to leave it on, especially while fueling. Just because nothing happens to most people,it can happen. And if you're in a major accident with the propane on, you can imagine what could occur. I've been an electrician for 40 plus years. I have seen some really bad electrical work. And when you point it out,sometimes you hear "we never had a problem". No, you didn't. But the fact is the potential is there for a fire or shock.While it won't happen to most,it could and I don;t want to be responsible for that. We run our fridge before we leave to get it cold. We put one frozen gallon milk jug in the fridge and a half gallon in freezer. Holds up for 12 hours if you don't open the door. We carry a smaller cooler in the truck for our drinks and sandwhiches.

RE: Anti freeze into fresh water tank

I have done it that way, but like someone pointed out it takes more antifreeze. I have a Wayne 12 volt pump that hooks to the battery.I use it to put water in the tank if we have no campground water connection.But it also works great for putting antifreeze in. I stick the pick up end in the bottle and the other end attaches to the fresh water connection.Of course I drain everything and blow out lines first.It takes about 1.5 gallons of antifreeze to purge the lines. Then I use another 1.5 gallons in the traps and the holding tanks.

RE: Where to go in November?

We stayed at Huntington Beach State park over Christmas a few years ago.They have some full hookups and the rest are W&E. Short walk to the beach. Great nature programs.The home of the Huntington's, Atalaya is open for tours.Next door is Brookgreen Gardens. Murrel's Inlet has some nice restaurants. When we stayed it was only $18 a night for W&E.The first day there it was 80. The rest of the week was low 60's but sunny.

RE: Build quality by same manufacturer: Class A vs 5th vs TT

Most manufacturers have different lines. Some are economy models while others are top of the line.It's just like cars manufacturers.

RE: Williamsport to Harrisburg, Pa.

You could come down 15. We did that about a month ago and it was fine.

RE: Waxing trailer

Just to clarify, the fading is only at the top of the cap about 2 ft from the roof down.The rest doesn't look bad. The sides are fine. I guess any of the products mentioned will work well on the sides. I need to remove the oxidation at the top first,then use one of the products to keep it looking good.

Waxing trailer

We have a 2015 Keystone Cougar with hard sidewalls. I know there has been some discussion on this, but when I searched waxing trailer no results came up. I have oxidation on the front cap. I tried McQuiars cleaner wax which worked ok. The other 3 sides don't have any oxidation.I used Armoral on a portion of the one side and that seemed to work as good as the wax, plus it had the benefit of making the vynal door and window trim look good. I doubt the Armoral will last so my question is,what do most of you find that works the best?
