RE: Walmart etiquette?

Anyone tried a graveyard parking lot? Nobody is going to get up & bother you there. You obviously don't watch the same movies I do.... ;)

RE: Jack Pads

Could also just be habit. Just a part of setting up.

RE: pardon me if this isn't where it's supposed to be...

Were you actually driving along the road, or using Google / GPS / internet to "cruise" the road? A lot of older campgrounds still don't have a big internet presence, so aren't easy to "find" on the internet.

RE: Storing my Travel Trailer

We leave ours closed up when we aren't using it. I have damp-rid buckets in the main part of the camper and in storage areas. Considering how high humidity levels can be, I don't want open windows letting in all that damp air. Camper can get a little "musty" smelling after extended sitting. I have found that scented DampRid can help with any smell. Also, it seems to me that the DampRid hanging bags (designed for closets) seem to work better than the buckets, but they are more expensive and don't last as long.

RE: Purchased a DRV from Camping World in Marion NC today

...I've been busier than a cat covering up doo-doo. ... And another quote I'm going to borrow!

RE: Perking coffee -- how long?

Many years ago (at least 10, if not 15) I bought a 14 cup stainless steel percolator from SportsmansGuide. Surprisingly heavy duty. I guess it is a no-name brand, as the box it came in simply says "14 cup percolator". Has worked great ever since. It will boil over (perc over?) if you don't watch it.

RE: Disney (FL) campgrounds???

Keep trying Fort Wilderness as you look for other campgrounds. A a lot of people reserve extra days at FW "just in case" and then cancel as their plans change.

RE: There is ugly..and then there u-g-l-y

So... any kind of story behind this? Did you talk to the driver/ owner?

RE: Eating out

"what is the best way to plan meals and cook while on the road?" You may not like my answer... it varies completely with each family! I am a big planner. I like times for each meal, so I can plan my hikes / fishing / tether ball games / etc. I find it easier to know what and when I will be eating. Good friends of our who we camp with us on a regular basis - seem to not plan anything. They just bring plenty of everything and cook when ever it seems to be needed. But it all works, and we have great times. You will get more responses in this thread, but also look through the forums. The camp cooking section has GREAT meal ideas for camping! As to eating out while camping... we rarely do. We have our meals planned in advance, so we return to the camper for meals. It also can save a small fortune during the camping trip. Leftovers? Eat them at home when you get back! We also usually keep a couple cans of Hormel chili / Campbell soups / whichever in the camper cupboards as "emergency backup" - also, at the end of the season, those cans are simply put in the home kitchen and eaten eventually over the winter.

RE: dumping at camp grounds

We were told to put as little solid material in the black tank as possible. We use the camp facilities if we can, and have a waste bin for paper. We almost never dry camp or use primitive camp sites. Last trip, we seemed to dump about every 3-4 days; when one of the tanks showed a red light. I've always thought that getting rid of toilet paper separately is for "leave no trace" deep woods camping - where you might be burying your black tank waste. But that doesn't really make sense... toilet paper like single ply Scotts and similar break down so quickly I don't think there is an environmental issue with it. I don't see toilet paper "filling" your black tank unless you really use a lot of it. It is another way to do things, and it if works for you, then it works!

RE: Start-up items needed?

I've found that a nice "tool kit" for our TT is one of those suitcase-type sets from Walmart or Home Depot. I got one of those kits on sale for very little money, has hammer, wrenches, pliers, screwdrivers, etc etc. Yes, they are cheap tools, but they do the job in a pinch. And I actually need to use them rarely. My good tools are in my garage (more of a shed), where I can reach them and use them almost everyday.

RE: Best choice? Small Generator vs Solar Setup -> weekend camp

hunter_rv... how quiet is your Honda 7000? Is the Honda 2000 (great generator, by the way - you want the EU model, the quiet one) really that much more fuel efficient? For the cost of another generator, that could buy a lot of gallons of gas. For a quick, easy solution I would say get the second smaller generator. If you are planning on doing this for awhile, certainly look at solar and larger batteries.

RE: When a Woman runs a RV Company

So, what is "apartment style"? Those Aussie interiors look pretty much laid out the same as trailers here.

RE: Showing up late

I'd give the park a call and find out if there is an overflow area and what their policy is for late check-ins. Weekend check ins it's been my experience that no one generally cares about late check ins as they are too busy packing fun into 72 hours. +1 Some campgrounds we've been to want very late arrivals to overnight in an "overflow" area so as to not bother other campers. Call and find out.

RE: Toilet Overflow

Edit... nevermind, you are talking about your well pump when you say "water pump". I didn't catch that at first.
