RE: Reservations en route to FL from VA on 95, late Jan 2015?

We like Pecan Park just north of Jacksonville. Its right off I-95 maybe 1/2 mile. If you're there on a weekend the flea market is nice. This is a nicer than average park and makes a nice stopover.

I need to store my moho for about 2 months around the Jacksonville Fl area. Any suggestions?

RE: fireplace

I think you misunderstood, what happens is after a new motor heater is installed it works for a while then it quits working. they have sent a 3rd blower but I'm tired of taking it apart to replace it.

RE: fireplace

I think running a propane line to a heater in those close quarters is a little much. I'd just like to know if any one has replaced the -"electric" fire place with a different "electric" fire place and what did you use??
blknomad 09/15/14 06:03am Class A Motorhomes

I have a 2014 Itasca Sunstar 35f. I really like the coach for DW and I but the fireplace under the TV is a real piece of crap. Have installed second blower-heater motor for second time now its bit the dust. I like the heat part to knock the chill of on a cool morning. Surely I am not the only one with this problem. I would like to install a different wall mount type fire place and wonder if anyone has done this before?? Thanks

poor gas??

I filled up with gas at a small service station in Ohio near Berlin Ohio drove up to Cedar point and back. got to west va and coach just seemed to loose power. got back to Wythville va and filled up again and came up I-81 just hauling the mail. This is a 2014 Itasca v-10. I know someone will say west va has mountains but this is not my first horse and pony show. I've put 11k on this coach from Main to Fla. An Ideas??

RE: iowa to the carolinas-any must see??

Coming from Iowa you have many choices to make. One absolutely do not miss is Gettysburg Pa. Not that far off I-81. Somewhere along here you will have to deside wheather you will go down the coast or follow the mountains. The coast is beautiful with lovely beaches and lots of history. Outer banks and Roanoke island with its outdoor drama "The lost Colony" is a must see. Then Myrtle Beach and on down 17 to Charlston. Now the mountain side of the trip. After Gettysburg make your way to Front Royal Va and head down the Skyline Drive through the Shenandoah National park. Lots of senery and wild life. After 105 mi you will run into the Blueridge Parkway. This 440 plus miles runs along the the crest of the mountains and ends in Cherokee Nc. on the eastern side of rhe Great Smokey Mts. If you end up in cherokee be sure to see "Unto These Hills" I hope you have good safe travels and enjoy this part of the world as I have all my life. By the way I travel in a 36ft. gasser towing so no problems there.

RE: Minnesota to Florida via the Smokies

Its only 14 miles from Knoxville to the Pidgen Forge turn off. Go to one of the campgrounds that has access to the trolly, most do. Ride the trolly all over gatlinburg and Pidgen Forge even goes out to Dollywood. Rent a car for a day and travel through the park over to Cherokee,I think its about 31 miles. You can drive your rv through but it would be more like work than a vacation. You will need several days to take it all in. Once you get the "lay of the land" you can drive back from Fl. to see it all you really need a toad.

RE: NC road conditions

Ditto what Skylark said. Once you hit 23-74 you can go to maggy or Cherokee. From maggy over Soco gap to cherokee should be avoided unless you are in your toad. 74 between maggy and the cherokee turn off has several campgrounds but I like Stone Bridge in maggy.

RE: Towing with a car caddy

Ditto what 911 said, run away from that con artist. I've towed on my car katty for years and never had a problem. Am towing a Rav 4 2wd now with no problems and I use a steel cable hung from the frame to loosly hook my safety chains.

RE: RV parks in Gatlinburg/Sevierville area

We've tried several different rv parks in that area as we go down at last once a year. We have settled on River View rv park. Great place for real world rv camping. flat as a pancake and you don't have to drag the rv through all that traffic. Check it out.

RE: Dolly recommendations please...

I have a demco car caddy and have pulled it behind 2 class As and pulled 2 different cars. Now You can back it up a few feet if you miss the pump, I have never ran aux lights just the lights on the dolly. I have never had to store my dolly away from my site most of the time I use a pull through. The fist car had struts run to the front of the frame so I could hook safety chains on one knee, after I traded and got a new toad it was all plastic and I soon got tired of laying down to hook chains. now I have a steel cable that runs from the frame to just under the front bumper and I hook themby just bending a little. Be sure to go with surge brakes that way you can pull it with another vehicle. Never had a problem with straps but I docheck at every stop. Safe Travels

St. Louis

I plan on doing the Great River Road top to bottom later this year in a class a towing. Looks like the real headache will be getting through St. Louis. Any suggestions would be appreciated except the usual BS, and you know who you are.

Great River Road

I've read a little about the trip but it seems to change routes and go through little towns. Don't really mind this but would like to know if it is worth it? I'll be in a class A towing.

RE: How to Improve Sightseer Handling?

Look up the CHF. This is where you change the position of the swaybar bolts. Best thing you can do and its free.

RE: Tow dolly question

I'd like to add some more but Sez is spot on. I've been towing a Demco kar kattie for 6 years and never had a problem. I'm on 2nd moho and 2nd toad, same dolly. I did replace the straps because first toad had 14in tires and new has 17in.
