RE: Post your tow vehicle pics here

I posted awhile go here, but I guess this would be an "update" post. Was at West Thompson Lake COE campground in Connecticut this past weekend. http://i57.tinypic.com/2j3p1l5.jpg

RE: Toyota tough.......not

That was common with the older Toyotas around me (Northeast). Especially the ones that had single wall bed! Does anyone else remember the "optional" bolted-in "double wall" add on? Dodges were known for the front and rear bumpers rusting out in just a few years. Fords and Chevys would have various frame pieces rust out prematurely, seemingly randomly. Life in the "salt belt"!

RE: Leveling side to side method from seasoned campers

I carry 2 2x10 boards, roughly 4 feet long (probably more like 3 feet), ends cut at an angle. I used to carry 3 boards, but rarely had to use the 3rd. I also have 2 bags of "Ramp Levelers", or as I call them Lego blocks, which are the same thing as the Lynx levelers although possibly not as heavy duty. On the rare occasion I need more than 2 boards for leveling, I have the lego blocks. As per Soundguy's excellent post, the plastic lego blocks work much better if they sit on a hard surface such as a board. Also, I actually use the lego blocks more for leveling the grill and picnic table than anything else! But whatever you use them for, they are very convenient to have on hand.

RE: Flashlight for camping needed

HI, do you guys carry flashlight with you when you go out for camping? I am going to out for a camping, and need a flashlight, do you guys know what brands are good. I searched some brands online such as Sure fire, fenix, streamlight, tank007, etc, but find the flashlight a little expensive. Do you think I need to pay that much money for a flashlight? This is an oddly worded post... I hope my spidey sense is not saying this is a lead in to an advertising post... What kind of camping are you thinking about? RV'ing, hiking? If you are RV'ing, then big heavy flashlights are fine. If you are hiking, you want super lightweight lights. I've found that for the expensive flashlights out there, I can buy 3 or 4 or more inexpensive small LED flashlights that seem to work fine. Just look in your local hardware store, Walmart, wherever. If you are backcountry hiking and camping, yes, you may want to invest in fancy flashlights for dependability.

RE: Newbie Question

We use the same cleaners that we use in our home, no problems with our plastic toilet and plumbing.

RE: Traveling from nj to florida

We have gone twice (so far!) from Connecticut to Florida. I second the "50 miles per hour rule" for trip planning... I always average 65mph speed when towing, but at the end of the day, including rest stops and traffic, it always seems like when you divide the time towing with miles, it ends up being 50 miles per hour. I plan on stopping for a quick break every 1 1/2 hours or so, and a longer break every 3 hours or so. For total time, we were about 25 hours. 15 hours from Connecticut to South Carolina (we stayed in Florence, Florence RV Park - simple on and off I95, great for an overnight). Then 10 hours from South Carolina to Fort Wilderness, Disney. Yes, there are restrictions regarding roads, tunnels, bridges, etc. I HIGHLY recommend figuring out a possible route, then post in a thread in these forums to get feedback from people. When we went to Disney, the feedback I got from people on these forums was invaluable for trip planning. Most times you will get comments from people that may have been on your exact route just the day before. I am a planner, so I had my route planned, and timed, carefully. I left extra time available for circumstances - longer stops, delayed start, traffic, etc. Don't let traffic get you down! It will happen, just turn up your air conditioning and the radio and enjoy not working. Your advantage is you don't have to worry about going through NYC / George Washington Bridge / Tappanzee Bridge!

RE: Amazing things some folks do

Seen one guy use gloves to empty tanks and remove his slinky that's ok but then he proceeds to turn on and off water tap and removes his white hose with the same gloves on! Guess he doesn't want to get his hands wet but leaving his $:!+ on the water tap for others to touch is ok? Which "water tap"? Most dump sites around me have a rinsing hose at the sewer dump that is marked "not potable", and then further down is a "potable water" tap for refilling your fresh water tank. I always keep my rubber gloves on when using the water at the sewer dump to rinse out my stinky slinky.

RE: Waze app for navigation?

Wife and I tried Waze a couple times, just didn't like it. She uses the Google app now.

RE: haggling on camping prices

... My immigrant Swede father ran a small town car business for 3 1/2 decades starting in 1922 - he did not stay in a business like that by playing games and not doing the above. ... A car dealership that did not play games with prices? I honestly have never heard of that. That must have made car buying an actual pleasant experience! In my mind, there is a big difference between "haggling" and "asking for a discount". Most campgrounds I've been to, during the busy season, would just tell you NO if you started haggling about the price and would show you the door. On the other hand, if you simply ask about any discounts, you might just get one or a pleasant "none available right now", and you would have a nice stay at that campground. At a car dealership, though, I certainly do haggle and shop around! And the car dealers are very happy to play that game! Some salespeople almost seem disappointed if you don't try to "haggle".

RE: 4 week northeast trip suggestions July 2015

In Connecticut along the shore there is Hammonassette State Park, right on Long Island Sound. No hookups, but really nice park and neat small towns in the area. Mystic Seaport - a bunch of campgrounds in the area (including Mystic KOA). Inland a bit is Gillete Castle State Park. No campground there, but many nearby campgrounds (like Wolf's Den private campground with hookups - there is a Wolf's Den State Park campground, but it doesn't have hookups). If you could catch a show at Goodspeed Opera House while you are there you really would have a good time! Lots of other places to go and things to do if you have the time!

RE: Give Advice or Get Told To Mind My Own Business ??

The tone of your post would offend me if you approached me with this know it all tone. You are much better off keeping your trap shut! Some people were just not born with any diplomatic abilities. Wow, I didn't read the OP's post as being offensive at all. The replys are going all over the place, which is making this thread more interesting that I would have thought!

RE: Park Model Questions

I've always thought Park Models were designed to basically be moved once... from dealer to campground. Then they are "installed" at the campsite with plumbing and electric. I am interested in reading other replys!

RE: Grand Kids to Disney in June

.... 2) lines are dead in October and April We've gone in October. Great time to go, if you can! Also, most of the month has events for Halloween which is a lot of fun - the Haunted Carriage Ride in Fort Wilderness was MUCH better than I thought it would be!

RE: Grand Kids to Disney in June

Disney and AAA not longer partner on discounts as of Jan. 2015. Well, that's too bad! I was going to mention to the original poster to check with AAA. Also try checking Disboards and FortFiends forums for info.

RE: Give Advice or Get Told To Mind My Own Business ??

I'd go with the friendly neighbor / offer a beer / talk about campers / mention the tires if the situation seems to be conducive route.

RE: Illegal GPS mounting

I never knew that in Connecticut windshield mounted GPS is illegal. Basically everyone I know with GPS here in CT mounts it on the windshield just below the rear view mirror. Same with everyones EZPass -- just below rear view mirror. I'll ask one of the local PD about it at the next car accident... which will probably be caused by cell phone use while driving...
