RE: Saratoga Springs to Freeport, Me.

Looking for a little "local knowledge" on a good route towing our TT. Since we travel at 63mph on the Interstates, I often elect to take the older, pre-interstate, main roads unless there is a compelling reason not to. My GPS wants me to go south to pick up I-90 to I-95 near Worcester. Another option seems to be NH 9 to get I-89 near Concord. This appears to be the shortest route, but it certainly has a "back road" look to it. Anyone have an opinion on these routes? Is there another? Teach If you really don't mind backroads-no interstates...go on rt 29 to Bennington,Vt then rt 9 into NH...rt 202 .to Concord and I-93 to Manchester,NH take rt 101 to I-95 north to Freeport....not a bad ride ,little slower that the interstates but pretty country....when in Maine...ride up to Wisscasset and have the best Lobster roll ever at Red's Eats...Chuck

RE: Freightliner or Spartan on new 40' Dutch Star

Don't think you will find any tag axle coaches with a rear radiator. Interesting...........Well I did find at least one in my garage: http://pic100.picturetrail.com/VOL1523/6528899/12657597/413148808.jpg We had 3 DP on Spartan's....reading all the Entegra problems on spartans and talking to some owners...then this past may took ours to Spartan for service...it probably was the worst service I've had on on motorhome.....the tech did almost nothing i asked to be checked.....now going to a Freightliner....C

RE: American Coach, how the heck does this AC system work?

I have a 2009 American Tradition. I cannot for the life of me figure out how this cooling system works. I have 3 AC's with 3 zones. Zone 3 seems to work fine. Zone 1 & 2 are very confusing. I am assuming zone 1 controls the AC unit closest to the cockpit, Zone 2 control the middle AC unit and zone 3 controls the rear unit. With all 3 zones on cool, the AC's on zone 1 & 2 will turn on and off as I think they should but sometimes one of them will try to start and them it see,s to fail almost like the start capacitor is bad, but the next time it may start fine and run for how ever long it takes to cool the coach, then it may shut down and the fan will come on for about 5 seconds at full speed and then its shuts down completely. Both the front and middle AC units are doing this. I had a hard time telling which one was doing it as they are close together, so I just shut zone 2 off and left zone 1 and zone 3 on cool. I went on the roof and both the front and middle AC's are running. These are coleman mach 8 AC with an Atwood thermostat. Any insight is appreciated. Go on Yahoo groups..american coach owners and ask...Chuck

RE: Avoiding toll roads and bridges from Washington DC to Boston

This June my wife and I will be attending our son's graduation from MIT in Boston. We will be pulling our travel trailer from Savannah, Ga to Normandy Farms in Foxboro, Ma. We have traveled I-95 when taking him his Freshman year but did not enjoy all the toll roads and bridges we encountered. What are the suggested routes to take in getting around the metropolitan areas and avoiding the tolls? From Savannah,I would and have gone 26 to Columbia to 77 to 81 in Whytesville..then 81 pass Harissburg,Pa to 78 to 287 north to 87 north...a toll road but overhead transponders..... to 84 all the way to Sturbridge,Mass to 90...another toll road but again not a problem to 495 to Foxboro... this is a great route..limited tolls and traffic.....probably only real traffic in Charolotte...and many great campgrounds to chose along the way....Chuck

RE: RV'ing from Massachusetts to Disney in February

Thank you so much to everyone for your answers and advice. We really appreciate it! We are still trying to figure out what we are going to do with so many great routes suggested. AAA has suggested the following route which I am not seeing an exact match to any of your suggestions and, to be honest, seems rather complex. I am wondering what your opinions may be on this: Mass Pike (90) to 84 to 684 to 287 to Garden State Parkway to 95 to 295 to 95 to 695 to 95 to 495 to 395 to 95 (through NC, SC, GA and into FL) to 295. I agree..this is the route to take...avoids all the traffic.....

RE: NJ to Key West in 4 days

This is our first long distance trip with our new Forester. Any tips, tricks or thoughts are welcome! i like i_78 out of Jersey and because it's winter 78 to 81then to Winchster,Va to I-66 for 25 miles to rt 17 thru Warrenton,Va to 95 above Richmond,Va.....first stop either Americamps in Ashland or Caralina Crossroads in Roanoke....then SOB and into Florida Apps we like on the phone are RVparky,Allstays and IExit....safe trip..Chuck

RE: Northern Virginia to Vero Beach, Florida avoiding I-95

Towing a travel trailer on I-95 is terrifying......speeding trucks, weaving, speeding cars, inconsiderate drivers. Does anyone have experience with taking Rt. 17, and if so how much longer did it take? Or is there some other route that is less stressful? Not sure where Northern Virginia is..but you an go I-81 to I-77 near Whyheville ,va and down I-77 to Charolette to Columbia..then onto I-26 to I-95..this probably not that much farther if at all.....this puts you on a less busy portion of I-95 down to Vero beach..if you do go this way when you get to Jacksonville ..take rt 295 ..rt 9 to the east...less traffic and you come out south of jacksonville..have a great trip...Chuck

RE: Overnight Flying J

theron211, do you have a route picked out? And when you are going to be making the trip? When we went down to Disney World, we found South Carolina to be a good area for an overnight - this is coming from Connecticut. We are leaving from upstate NY in the evening. Looking for a quick overnight then we are going to spend 2 nights in Savanna before Disney. When you are in Savannah...and you want a GREAT southern lunch...go to Mrs Wilkes Dining Room on 197 West Jones st...open 11 am to 2 pm Monday to Friday...cash only ,but best sourthern buffet we ever had..Chuck

RE: Overnight Flying J

Prince William Forest and Americamps are 2 campgrounds in the area both have easy access and are good for overnighting. The flying J will be very busy. If you want a free spot consider Cracker Barrels in the area. Assuming you are coming in late. Prince William Forest RV Campground Americamps I second Americamps...think they are mostly pull thrus

RE: RV'ing from Massachusetts to Disney in February

Tappan Zee is much easier but If I were driving overnight then I would consider staying on 95. I have driven to Disney 8 times in February. Watch the weather and you should be fine. Be aware that the roads can be worse down south with 1 inch than 8 inches up north. If the weather is good I like tappen zee then 287 to 78 in NJ to Penn. then to 81 thru VA to 77 thru Charlotte. Nice campground in Hardeeville SC called Camp Lake Jasper for the night just off 95. Short drive to Orlando next day. We live in central Ct and sometimes I skip 84 to 684 and take 95 to exit 21 in NY first or second exit I think then go 11 miles to tappen zee. I also live in Ct...and agree some what with above..as stated,being February..weather is a significant factor ...but I like to go 84 to Newburgh to 87 south to 287 west to 78 and then 81.....I'd watch the weather and in Harrisburg,Pa would go down 83 to 695 to 95 ,,,if weather was ok....the stay on 81 to Winchester,Va go down I-66... 25 miles...to rt 17around Warrenton,Va to I-95 from the Waterbury,Ct area it is about 500 miles to Richmond,Va area..so from Mass add another 1 1/2 to the trip.....but in Winchester,Va you have Candyhill C/G and in West Va off 81 at evit 13 you have Falling Waters C/G...good overniter....Chuck

RE: Overnight in Fort Myers Beach, FL: mid-April 2016

Thanks for the suggestions. Since we are pulling a Jeep, we are looking for a drive through spot so that we can leave at first light the next day. That probably eliminates the state park, but I appreciate the heads-up on Red Coconut and San Carlos. Bill we love San Carlos and are going back again this April....but limited pull thrus and quite away off of I-75 for just a night ...in MHO.....but it is a great spot....walk over the bridge to Boot Kickers...Chuck

RE: Ownership rv resorts ... Are they all the same?

for that money you could buy two houses, one North, one South and own something that can go up in value. bumpy Bumpyroad,can't say I understand your logic here....we had two houses,one up north one on and Island and a 43 ft motorhome....all you become after enough years of owning them is an maintenance manager and then you hope you can make some money back... we still got the house up north ,sold the island and now are looking for a lot to own ..tired of maintaining them all...will travel but want a place to park and take a breathe every now and again..or even fly somewhere..Chuck

RE: Spots after removing Diamond Shield

Was the shield installed at the factory or was it installed after you bought the coach? Just curious. That Diamond Shield is just pure junk......had it on a MADP ...UP NORTH it molded the same way..just trash...am ordering a new Newmar....specifically requested it not to be on the coach..Chuck
