RE: Outdoor kitchen in Yellowstone (bears)?

We were in Yellowstone many years ago and someone left a bag of trash near their hard sided travel trailer. We watched a bear come to the camper, rip the bag open, and then proceed to try to get into the trailer. Scratched the side to shreds with his claws. We called a ranger, who arrived within minutes, but by then the camper was a mess. From watching this, I was cautious about even cooking inside our rv.

RE: Lancaster Pa

We live about two hours from Lancaster, so when we want to get away for a few days, Lancaster is our go to place. We've tried a lot of the area campgrounds. Our favorite: Old Mill Stream. Nothing fancy, but clean and close to a lot of the area attractions. We love the sites-large enough and shaded. A great place to kick back. Next favorite-Beacon Hill. Clean and very friendly owners. We love the family farm that is across the street. There is also an Amish making hat "factory" at the end of the road, so you get to see a lot of Amish driving by. If you stay here, get a site by the road, so you can watch. This road is a dead end, so no other traffic. Beacon Hill is also close to the area attractions. Lancaster attractions are spread out, and these two campgrounds are about twenty minutes from one another.

RE: Newbie question, should have asked this first.

Todd, If you are already traveling 2 1/2 hours to central PA, may I suggest you travel north to Souderton and visit Fretz RV. I think you might like their stock, plus they are probably a bit closer. They also have a great service center.

RE: Lazy Daze; How good?

We are on our second Lazy Daze. We first had a 23 foot and now have a 27 foot. We bought both motorhomes used. We had a 2003 and now have a 2002. We have never owned any other brand of Class C, so I can't do a compare/contrast of rv brands. What do I like the best about our Lazy Daze, and certainly see as its biggest pro? The quality of the coach. I am constantly reading posts about low quality, shoddy cabs. Not ours. Now, understand, we do a great job in preventative care with our Lazy Daze, in order to keep it looking and running well, but then again, so do a lot of other people, and they still face issue after issue with their motorhomes. We don't. We started our travels with a ten year old daughter and a greyhound. The lack of a slide was never an issue with us. Now, again, we never had a slide, so we don't know what we are missing, but we have always felt we have enough room in our coach. To us, there are no cons, but plenty of pros. Hope this helps.

RE: Oliver Factory Tour: Pls Help Interpret My Findings?

Thanks so very much for gathering all of this information. This was certainly time consuming. Thanks again.

RE: Oliver Factory Tour: Pls Help Interpret My Findings?

We currently have a Class C, but I have given a lot of thought to the Oliver/Escape trailers. BUT, the wet bath really causes me to pause. So, I too, would say- could you ask the company if they plan to, or is there any way, to make a separate shower? Thanks.

RE: Some questions about a trip out West

Some more information. Yes, we still have the Lazy Daze. Up to now, we have not towed. We are planning to either tow on this trip or rent a car as needed. We were thinking that two months would be a good start to our first "big trip." We are just going to focus on the northwestern part of the United States at this time. We plan to head to the southwestern United States at another time. The reason I haven't done tons of planning for this trip-there is a possibility that our daughter would be visiting. She and her family (meaning the best grandchildren in the world) live in Australia and are coming to visit sometime next year. Not sure when. Naturally, if they come in August/September, this trip goes out the window until another time. Thanks for the suggestion of state and local parks. I never thought of using state campgrounds. Does two months sound reasonable for this trip?

Some questions about a trip out West

I am retiring early next summer, and to kick off my retirement, my husband, who has already retired, and I are thinking about taking a trip out West. We live in Pennsylvania. We would probably visit T. Roosevelt National Park, Glacier, Olympic, and Redwood before we started for home. We haven't decided what to see on the way home yet, but the journey home would probably not be as ambitious. We have been out West twice before-once to Yellowstone/Grand Tetons and once to the Utah/Grand Canyon area. We did each of those trips in three weeks. Now, my questions: #1-I am a planner and have always planned trips in meticulous detail. Before a trip like this, I would always have our major campgrounds booked (example-the national parks). This time though, we would like to take our time and travel without time constraints. Doing some research, it appears that the national parks have quite a few "first come, first serve" campgrounds, so I am thinking we would be good. BUT, am I right? #2-I was thinking that about two months would be a good time frame for a trip like this. Yes? No? Thoughts? Thank you.

RE: Campgrounds near lancaster

We have been to Lake in Woods. Also, to quite a few other campgrounds in the Lancaster area. I am going to say-no-there are no other campgrounds like Lake in Woods in the area. Lake in Woods is truly a resort. Tons to do and a lot of amenities. A place you could go (especially with the kids)for a week and never leave. Now, with that being said, we haven't been to Lake in Woods in several years. Our kids are grown, and Lake in Woods is a bit far away from Lancaster attractions. We tend to go to Old Mill Stream and Beacon Hill when go to Lancaster.

RE: Could someone help with a refrigerator issue?

Found the problem. My husband read all of the great responses here and decided to first take a look at the battery. And......the battery was low on water. Filled the water, ran the generator a bit, turned it off, and let the rv sit for an hour. Then, he hit the gas/start button, and the fridge turned on immediately. Thank you so much for saving us a trip to the repair shop. Kathy

RE: Could someone help with a refrigerator issue?

Thanks for all of the input, My husband is going to check the battery voltage, the wires, and everything else battery related. Thanks again for giving us help. Kathy

RE: Could someone help with a refrigerator issue?

Thank you. I don't think we have one of those "read the charge in the battery things/voltmeters?" If not, we'll get one and check. And, rats, the battery is only a year old. Again, thank you. I'll let everyone know how things turn out. Kathy

Could someone help with a refrigerator issue?

I was hoping that someone could help us with a refrigerator issue. My husband went to start our Dometic gas/electric fridge. He pushed the gas start button and nothing happened. No clicking noise (which always sounds when the gas starts up) at all. He waited a bit and tried again. Nothing. Tried again. Nope. Se, he fired up the generator (we are not connected to electric at home)and was able to get the refrigerator to start with the generator current. Once he turned the generator off, the refrigerator switched itself to gas. We left for a trip and had no trouble with the refrigerator for the rest of the week-end. It stayed on gas while we drove to a campground and then switched to electricity once we set up. Upon returning home, and once the fridge was off, my husband once again tried to start the fridge by pressing the gas button. Nothing. Does anyone have any ideas what could be wrong. Thank you. Kathy

RE: Small 5th wheel

Padlin, I have been looking on line, at the Escape fifth wheel. Problem is-the factory is in western Canada. I worry the bathroom will be too small. Would love to see one. The website says the closest one to me (with a person willing to show) is in Richmond, VA. Assuming you like yours?

RE: Newbie to RV-Life

Alex, My husband and I and our four year old daughter lived in a trailer (maybe thirty feet) for a year and a half while I finished college. We then stayed another six months in the trailer and added a baby to the family. We also had a dog. Would I do it now-no way. But, we were young and needed to survive on $400.00 a month. It worked for us. We didn't see it as a big inconvenience. It was just what we could afford at the time. Best wishes whatever you decide.
