RE: drive from Custer SD to Lake McConaughy NE can we?

We drove that way 20 years ago. Roads were good two lane but there weren't many gas stations and the ones they had were tight getting in and out for a 24ft TT.

RE: Pennsylvania RV Park

Bald Eagle Lake Start Park has a really nice campground with some electric and some full hookup sites. The sites are nicely spaced. They have a beach for swimming and new bath houses. You are about 10 miles from the Piper Aircraft Museum in Loch Haven.

RE: Shenandoah, Blue Ridge Parkway, and the Great Smokies

We stayed in Big Meadows Campground. It was ok. As others had mentioned,Loft Mountain is nice. But if you want to get off the parkway a little,Sherando Lake is a nice Forest service campground with electric hookups,nice showers and a lake with a beach.Further south is Philpot Lake. The forest service campground has some real nice sites right on the lake. They have electric hookups

RE: I-80 from Lincoln, NE to Salt Lake City

We were on it in 2016.Nebraska was mostly ok. The western end they were doing some road work which should be done by now. Wyoming was good. If going from St Louis, you might consider taking Missouri 36. Good 4 lane road. Then 29 to 80. But we took a short cut off I29 at Nebraska City. I believe it was Rt6.It cuts a number of miles off the trip.

RE: Our trip

I had a different take on Mustang Run, while the physical facilities were new and very well done I found it to be too much concrete, too close to the interstate (we were only overnighting, but I've stayed at truck stops with less road noise). To my eyes it was basically a parking lot with a nice bathhouse attached, not my idea of an upscale campground. My ideal park is more like some of the ones in the Keys, large semi-private spaces right on the water but still with nice facilities. Our ideal campgrounds are state and federal parks so we don't have a ton of experiences with parks like this other than KOAs. In fact Mustang Run,which was much nicer than most KOA's was less money than the KOA we stayed at.We don't have any experiences with upscale campgrounds in the keys.

RE: Little or no mechanical knowledge or capability

I feel sorry for those that don't have any mechanical ability. It's a pain to take your RV back to a dealer and they generally take a long time fixing anything especially if it involves a warranty. We have a had a few warranty type issues with our 2015 TT but I was able to fix them myself. They are a lot of good videos on you tube about how to fix almost anything.

RE: Oklahoma Roads

We went through Oklahoma twice in the past 2 weeks. All roads were good.Ohio I-70 was the worst.
RGar974417 05/13/18 04:27pm Roads and Routes

We have a 26ft Keystone Cougar TT. Prior to that we had 2 Sunlines.I have a had a dual battery set up for years. With the Sunlines,I could go 4 days without recharging the batteries. With the Keystone,I have to charge them every day. I have 2 group 24 deep cycles. That is what I have always used.Since I have had the same set up for years, and got longer use with the Sunline, I assume the charger in the Keystone isn't as good as the ones on the Sunline. So my questions are, where is the unit located? I assume behind the fuse panel and ,what is a good charger to replace it with Thanks.

Our trip

My wife,I and our Lab,Maggie took a 16 day trip from eastern Pa to Payson, Arizona. We stayed there 4 days then headed for Texas to see our grand kids,then headed home. Our first stop was the KOA in Richmond,Indiana. Ok for an over nighter. Second night,Happy Trails Campground right off I-44. Looks like a former KOA.Courtney at the desk was very nice. $30 cash for full hookups. Next night Mustang Run RV park just outside Oklahoma City. Very nice upscale campground. All roads and sites are concrete. $45 for full hookups and cable. Bueatiful office and showers.Swimming pool and dog run.Nicest private park we have stayed in outside of Ft Wilderness at Disney.Next night Santa Rosa lake state park. We stayed in the primitive area $10 a night. They did have a section with electric but it was full.We mostly drove at night and we arrived at the Petrified Forest,Painted Desert national park about 2 hours before they opened. This is a nice park and was free with the senior pass. The Painted Desert Inn was really neat. We drove through the park loop then headed to Canyon Point,a Forest Service Campground around 10 miles west of Heber, Arizona on 260. This is our kind of campground. Sites are nicely separated. One loop has electric. The bath houses are fairy new and well maintained.It is run by Thousand Trails. With the senior pass it was $17.50 with electric. The next day we headed to Payson,Arizona and stayed at Houston Mesa and stayed 4 days. Nice Forest Service campground. Well run.Nice bathhouses and sites are nicely separated. Payson has a nice,big dog park that is opened to the public. Maggie liked this. We left Saturday evening heading towards Ft Worht to see out grand kids.We had reservations at Hickory Creek Campground which is an Army Corps of Engineers campground. The road to the campground was closed. We called the campground but no one answered. Luckily, a Corinth Police Officer came to our rescue and we followed him to the campground. This is a nice campground and Lewsiville lake.Our site was right on the water with electric.It appears the campground may have been built in the 70's. And while it is a nice campground,it needs to some up keep. Simple things like painting the rest rooms is needed. It seems the Forest service does a better job at keeping up their campgrounds than the COE does. None the less,we enjoyed our stay there and visited the Stockyards with our grandkids.We left Hickory Creek Wedenseday evening and drove over night to Meramec State park in Missouri. Nice camp ground. We had a site along the river with full hookps which was only $24.00 a night.You also pay a one time fee of $8.50 to enter the park. Our neighbors had a dog and we took our Lab and their golden doddle to the river and let then swim. They had a great time.Headed out early next morning and stayed our last night at the Richmond KOA where we started. The weather was good through out most of the trip.

RE: Water heater

Wait a second, every time I turn on my Suburban 10 gal water heater on gas the DSI light comes on. After the burner lights in about 10 or 15 seconds the light goes out. That's it's normal operation. How long are you letting the DSI light stay on?? You win! When I left switch on, burner lights and DSI light goes out. Prior to this, DSI light would only come on when burner failed to ignite. Thanks

RE: Water heater

Light off stove top burners to place a demand on LP Reg and get propane flow established Then try water heater again and again.......can take a few attempts to get propane flow established to all propane lines/appliances. Propane system is only 0.4 psi and water heater (furnace, fridge) have safety features that require flame be proven. Try it again.... Provided it IS Sparking.I have gas a t the stove. It never gets to spark because ad soon as I hit switch it goes to DSI fault

RE: Water heater

Suburban did have some control boards that failed. As some trouble shooting, Did you press the reset buttons for both 12VDC and 120VAC? Have you confirmed you have 120VAC Have you confirmed you have 120VAC past the crappy outside switch? Have you confirmed you have the tank full of water?Yes to all of them. It works on 120volts but not on gas. When I got the sweitch inside the teailer,it shows DSI fault immediately. I was thinking the control board too.

Water heater

We have a Suburban water heater. It worked fine for the first 2 years. This time out,as soon as I hit the switch,it goes to DSI fault.I tried the reset but that didn't work. Gas supply is fine. Any suggestions?

RE: assateague island and Williamsburg VA

We stayed in the NP Bayside campground loop C. IMO, the best site there. We had a tree for shade,we were about 100 ft from the bay and about 100 yards from fresh water and dump station. Go to all the ranger demonstrations. They are good.They even have a campfire on the beach. Williamsburg was nice. We also enjoyed Jamestown. You can get the pass for those 2 plus Yorktown.We stayed across the river at Chippokes Plantation state park. There is a free ferry across the river which drops you off right at Jamestown. Nice Campground with water and electric.

RE: Some YNP roads open today!

We were there mid May 2016. Southern entrance wasn't open until the day before we left. Snow along the roads and the lake still had some ice on it. But there was a lot open. The icing on the cake was when a mother grizzly with 3 cubs walked right down the right and then past our van.We were on the way from Norris to Canyon when we saw them.

RE: Samsung Tablet Users..

I'm glad the transfer went well for those of you who bought new tablets. I upgraded from an S4 to an S8. I tried to do it myself but had problems.Called my computer guy and not everything got transferred over.They make it sound easy but it wasn't for me.
