RE: Leaves In the Smokie Mountains

We are leaving for Pigeon Forge on Monday. Are the leaves still turning? Looking forward to cooler weather and colorful scenery. Don Great Smoky Mountains Fall Color Report; http://www.nps.gov/grsm/planyourvisit/fallcolor.htm

RE: Giraff G4 height sensor

According to the web site it is just straight up and it does provide audio alert if height is less than programed height. It looks kinda cool but it is something you have to creep up to, not driving speed. From Camping World Web site: Protect Your RV with GiraffeG4! The driver pulls the GiraffeG4 exterior sensor under the hazard. For 5th wheel units, the magnet mounted sensor will be on the roof or hood of the tow vehicle. For Class "A" coaches, the Ram mounted sensor will be on the windshield or side view mirror. The GiraffeG4 sends a signal at the speed of sound. The pre-programmed read out in the cab will tell the driver the exact height of the bridge, tree limb, or gas station canopy the RV is about to pass under. And most importantly, if there is enough height clearance for the RV to pass under the hazard without damaging the AC unit or TV antenna. The GiraffeG4 will continue to measure the hazard until the RV is clear of it. This description would lead me to believe that a whip antenna mounted on the truck at trailer height would serve the same purpose.

RE: We're confused!!!

You can buy club membership, ERS, or both. Which did you buy?

RE: WFCO WF-8900 Not Charging

Probably a fuse or wiring issue. It is unlikely the converter would die and the battery would go flat while towing at the same exact time.

RE: Sirius XM Radio Install

I thought 'XM ready' meant all you had to do is buy the subscription and give them the radio ID number.

RE: Lifting A Travel Trailer

The only person qualified to answer is the manufacturer of your trailer. What I can or cannot do with my trailer is irrelevant to your trailer.

RE: inverter generator for gulfstream 198bh

2,000 watt will easily operate a 8,000 BTU A/C unit. I operate a 5,000 BTU A/C on a 800/900 watt generator.

RE: How to buy a Thousand Trails resell?

Thanks all for your tips. The RVLife blog post was particularly helpful in explaining the process.

RE: Camping World RV.NET

I believe that all the stuff on RV.net fall under the umbrella of Affinity Group Inc. Marcus owns Affinity. Affinity no longer exists as the umbrella company, it has been Good Sam Enterprises for at least a couple years. Marcus is an employee and probably a part owner, he is not 'the' owner.

RE: Ohio State Parks

...Going this weekend to Tappan Lake state park, looks like Rain. Yes, it looks like rain and cool this weekend, we will be at Atwood Lake for the Atwood Fall Festival. Last year at the Fall Festival we had hail. It is the best festival in Ohio in our opinion.

RE: Ohio State Parks

We were at Hocking Hills last week. You have a steep climb into the campground but doable. The sites are short like in most Ohio State Parks. There will be many sites you can use but you may need to park the truck in the grass or on another empty site. Some state parks are very strict about not parking on the grass but I saw many vehicles on the grass at Hocking Hills. Sorry I can't recommend a particular site. The one we used was very short but double width. It would have been too short for your RV. It is a nice park, we enjoyed 5 nights camping. I got in 24 hiking miles while there. Don't forget to use your Golden Buckeye card if you have one. It will get you a 10% discount on weekends and 50% discount during the week.

RE: parallel wiring batteries

Yes. Put the positive cable on the post of battery 1 and the negative cable on the negative post of battery 2. This will give you balanced charging and load setup. Or vice versa.

How to buy a Thousand Trails resell?

As I near retirement we are considering purchasing a Thousand Trails resell membership. What is the best way to go about this? I see them regularly on eBay. I have never contacted TT or attended a sales presentation. Could some knowledgeable members give tips on what is important? What questions should I ask? What are the best memberships? Over the years TT has sold a variety of memberships with different benefits. I would like to find a nationwide membership that has year round use with minimal restrictions for a reasonable price. I have searched and read a lot of old threads that went back 7 - 8 years ago. Hopefully there is current information available. I found these resale websites but haven't done much looking yet; http://www.campgroundmembershipoutlet.com/ http://www.rvparkstore.com/rv-park-and-campground-memberships http://www.rvonline.com/campgrounds/camplocate.html

RE: BALANCE 'drag/skid' WHEELS

Maybe the best approach would be to solve the problem rather than add something that will be even closer to the ground. What RV? Is this a trailer? Motor home? Put your RV information in your profile or signature so we know what we are discussing.

RE: W/D Hitches

Level and/or rear squat means nothing. The purpose of weight distribution is to restore the original weight on the front axle back to the axle for proper handling/steering. When you put weight on the hitch, the truck should squat just like when you put weight in the bed. BTW, if the factory dry weight is 2,600# the loaded weight is likely wayyyyy over 3,200#. First step is get the trailer weighed while loaded and ready for camping.

RE: New to RV,when traveling how do you know what areas to avoid

Since then, we NEVER venture from the rig without OC in our pocket! OC? Oral contraceptive? Orange crush? :B

RE: New to RV,when traveling how do you know what areas to avoid

I really can't believe that I just spent about 10 minutes reading all of this just to come to the conclusion that a lot of people spend way too much time watching TV and then worrying about what may happen if they do this or what if they do it another way. Sheez, I know common sense is really becoming an endangered species, but really?????? "Common sense" is misnamed because it has never been common.

RE: backup reverse lights on trailer?

I have an upper flood light and reverse lights in the trailer tail lights. None of them do me much good because I can't see behind the trailer anyhow. They do help my spotter avoid obstacles. The greatest benefit is two shop towels over the tow vehicle stop/tail/reverse lights. With the TV lights reflecting on the front of the trailer everything beyond that point is black. I also have a porch light on each side of the trailer near the wheels, that is the area I need to see. Another tip is a white hose or rope along the edge of where you want the RV. You will be surprised how well a white hose will show against the dark ground.
