RE: LED light bulbs and electricity savings question

If u want to save money,stop using shore power 100% of the time,Your rig has gas to run the fridge,water heater and furnace,you can run the lights off battery power for several days.Your water pump works off 12 volts.Why do you need shore power 100% of the time?As to the LEDs,they tend to last 50,000 hours on average,they use alot less current than incadescent lamps and give off less heat.So over the 50,000 hours you will make up what you paid for them and then some.

RE: dry camping in outer banks

How do you keep the sand out of the RV, though?? You don't!.You will always drag some sand in.We just sweep up daily.

RE: Myrtle Beach state park

wxtoad,you posted prices of $26 to $29 at Huntington Beach.Maybe it depends on the time of year and wether you had full hookups or water and electric.But we were just there over Christmas and paid $18 a night for water and electric.We really enjoyed the park.Our site,127 was isolated from other sites which we like.We went to 3 nature programs put on by park employees.The nature center was even open Christmas Day.They have a nice store and the employees were very friendly.You're not too far from Murrel's Inlet where there are a number of good restaurants.

RE: Champion Stand Alone Generator use in rainy Weather.

You could use a large dog crate.

RE: French Creek State Park in PA

We stayed at French Creek about 4 years ago.We were in the dog loop.What I did not like about most sites in that section was the picnick table and fire ring was behind the trailer instead of along side.There was no privacy between the sites.We went in on a Sunday in the spring because we don't like to go when it's crowded.Even though there were many open sites,a couple with 2 kids and a dog decided to take the site next to us.They then proceeded to get into a loud fight before going to bed and then another one the next morning.There we alot of F bombs being thrown around.I felt sorry for the young kids to have to be around that.They then drove off and left their very friendly dog tied to a tree.I reported all this to a ranger who did nothing.At that point we packed up and left a day early.We generally like Pa State Parks but will not return to that one ever.

RE: Insurance for a Custom Built Camper

I built my own 6 x 12ft enclosed cargo trailer and have it insured through my business insurance with Erie Insurance.

RE: Got robbed

Friends of ours were also robbed at a Cracker Barrel.Not sure if it was in Florida but they were on their way to Florida from Pa.You may want to get a bigger dog.We have an 80+ Lab and she sounds like she weighs 200 lbs though I doubt she would hurt anyone but she's a good deterent.

RE: Mount Rushmore in April

Watch the movie,North by Northwest before you go.The scene where Carey Grant is shot was taken in the cafeteria which is now the bookstore.You'll recognize it immediately.We enjoyed Bear Country USA and the Cosmos.A trip to the Badlands and Wall Drug will be worth while too.We stayed at Rafter J Campground but at that time Custer State Park had no electric hookups or we would have stayed there.Do the wildlife loop at Custer and go to the visitor centers and watch the movies on the park.

RE: mid Atlantic camping

thanks we go to the national seashore from castaways but don't camp there because of the bugs That's interesting sine we were there 4 years ago in August and had no bugs.It was hot,but no bugs all.

RE: mid Atlantic camping

Kiptopeke State park has full hookups and cable.Short walk to the beach.Assateague State and national parks.No hookups in NP but most loops allow generators.They have both bayside and beach campsites.They have water hydrants and dump station and cold water showers.One loop in the SP has electric.While not beach front,Maddox Campground in Chincoteague has full hookups and pool under tall pine trees.Close enough to Assateague National Wildlife refuge where there are paved trails where you can see the ponies and nice beaches.Chincoteague is a nice old shore town with great shops,restaurants and an old movie theater.Wallops Island Visitor Center is close by.

RE: Why RV?

My wife and I love to go to National Forest,COE or State Parks where there's plenty of room between sites.We love being in the woods where we can go for walks with the dog or bicycle rides.We love cooking on the grill and sitting by a nice fire. And now that we have grand kids,we enjoy doing all those things with them.

RE: Fundy National Park Ideas

I was at Fundy years ago.I was pretty sure we stayed in the park but that was in a tent.But that was over 40 years ago.The ranger led walk on the tidal flats was pretty neat.I believe it has one of the highest tide changes in the world.We also went to Cape Breton Highlands National Park in Nova Scotia.I remember crossing the border from Maine into New Brunswick there was a truck selling lobsters frozen in ice for $2.50 each!We bought 2 and made them that night.

RE: National Forest Service Campground, Havelock NC

If you Google Flanners Beach you will find some pics and videos of the Campground.Cedar Point is nicer in my opinion.

RE: Manufacturers - How Do You Answer This

Part of the problem is people only look at price,and then are shocked when whatever they buy falls apart.I am an electrical contractor.I usually would 1 to 2 new homes a year for a small contractor.In the beginning,he let me do what ever I want.I would use spec grade recepticles,good Nutone bath fan and lights,.I would put lights in all the bedrooms with fan rated boxes and run a 3 wire for seperate control,I would install more recepticles than required by code, etc. When I did the last house,he told me I had to cut back because all the customer looked at was the price.So we put in the cheap bath fan and lights,the cheap recepticles and only the amount required by code.One of the problems in that industry is the codes have changed over the last 10 years or so making it more expensive to wire a house.Arc fault recepticles are 10 times the cost on no arc fault.Tamper resistant gfi's are $4 more than non tamper proof.When all most people look at is the cost and when costs are driven up by regulations something has to give.The builder still builds a good house and I still do a good job of wiring,but the materials are cheaper to make up for the increased costs of new regulations.The bottom line is the builder has to make money or go out of business.I'm not making excuses for poor workmanship because that's unacceptable.But now maybe you can understand why businesses constantly look for ways to cut costs.It's economics.

RE: Need your suggestions - w/in a day's drive of NJ

If you like history,you could head west and stay at French Creek State Park near Reading,Pa and visit Valley Forge National Historic Park,Daniel Boone Homestead,,Boyertown,Pa Antique Auto Museum,Gruber Wagon Works and Heister Canal Museum and Hopewell Village National Historic site which is right next door to French Creek.
