RE: Raleigh N.C. campgrounds,

The fair grounds are great. Full hook ups for the moment st part though those by the Holdshouser building are only 20 amps. 50 amps available along the fence and the new midway area. Great flea market on the weekend. No reservations. You just find a spot and the security guy will come by and collect. uwharrie,you are in the old camping area...new one across the street from where you are...Chuck

RE: Getting across western PA

Looking for some experience / advice. Planning a trip in June where we will be heading for Minneapolis area from home close to the Maryland / PA line close to Gettysburg PA. I have been out / up RT70 through Pittsburgh a few times and not looking forward to 70 / 76 through the hills and the Pittsburgh area itself, but it's been 10 years since I last did it, so my memory may be exaggerating the "bad" of that leg of the trip. I was considering running up to Harrisburg and out 322 / 22 and then onto 80. It's only and extra few miles and I go to the State College area occasionally and didn't think the hills that way bugged me quite as much, even recently dragging 7K Lbs of TT behind me, but never been out across 80 past that area. So I guess the real question is if 80 is smooth sailing enough to be worth going that way? Oh, and we might leave the first evening and do this section in the dusk to dark and park for a nap somewhere close to the PA / OH line. Thoughts? we have been that way numerous times.....and your plan to get to the Oh/Pa line is good...but leave a little earlier,so that you get to the first rest area on 80..Ohio Tpke.....that rest area has a RV designated section with elect hookups for $20. also water and a dump station....and safe...Chuck

RE: Kennebunkport, Maine to Tallahassee, Florida

Ya we sure do Chuck. Speaking of 209, I used to stay at River Beach instead of Tri State when I had smaller Rvs. Last year I stayed at Deer Park on 209 just north of Port Jervis and the next day ran north on 209 up to the Kingston entrance onto 87 then to 90. Saved on tolls and that stretch of 209 isn't bad at all. If you ever get up to Boothbay, Shore Hills is the place to stay. And if you don't bring a toad they have a free shuttle into the Harbor. I stay in East Boothbay at our cottage right on the water. Got room for my MH and a 50amp connection for my motor home. We use the MH when family comes up to visit. I'll be north bound towards the end of May. When do you head north? Too many trees in River Park...but we have a place off 84 in Ct..so we head out straight from there...we have been to Shore Hills and tell friends to go there.. we go to St Thomas in the V.I. for the winter til we sell the place...this year leave the start of April...grab Motorhome and head to Florida/Ga for the month of April....being heading north last week of April fo grandson's first communion...Chuck

RE: Kennebunkport, Maine to Tallahassee, Florida

It is hard to find a direct north-south road to Tallahassee. Going down I-75 to intersect with I-10 puts you too far east. I should have explained that we use the I-40 (in TN) to I-75 because our other home is in extreme western NC. We don't mind towing through Atlanta, lived there for 10 years. lizzie Now, that makes sense.....but going from Cordele on Ga 300 to Ga 19 to Tally the way to go but I might even think of going over and going down 59 thru Birmingham and Montgomery....thru Dothan to I-10..nice ride and different......but never calculated the mileage..Chuck Bill, I missed it in your reply.....you and I ,seem to do the same routes most of the time...probably meet you one of these days......I will stop all over the place....Lee-High,Falling Waters,Ft Chiswell,Barnyard,Mohegan Sun..Pocono Downs,Baliyton RV..Tn,Tall Oaks,Tri-State....if we come up 209.....all depends when I leave and which way I want to go....Look for a good Moose or Elks Lodge..also, Chuck

RE: I can't figure out a beeping noise

About once an hour (I haven't timed it, exactly) I hear a single beep coming from the front of my coach. It's a 2014/15 Newmar King Aire. The beep is coming from the cockpit or generator bay in front of the cockpit. I don't know if it's the generator, Silverleaf system, triptek, GPS or some other system but I'd love to figure this out. Unfortunately, I'm never in the right position when it beeps to determine the exact source. Any ideas? on a MADP I had the wind sensor control box would beep like that after the awning went in a few times due to wind.....like an alert not to put it out for awhile...was a reset inside the box to stop it...Chuck

RE: Kennebunkport, Maine to Tallahassee, Florida

Much as I like Barnyard and that little home style southern food place nearby, I Wouldn't drive that far east to get to Tallahassee. I do use 441 thru Ga on my way N/S when time is not a factor. Lots of nice two lane roads thru rural Ga. Actually, when at the Barnyard...I unhook and go to Garibaldi's for some Flash Fried Flounder...excellent...lol... But,I can't believe anyone would go so far west to turn back east going down 40 to Knoxville...... look on map the route down thru Columbia,SC is west,then straight south then west then straight south for last leg....almost in a straight line...Chuck

RE: Route from NH to Ohio?

In late June I will be taking our Toyota Mini Cruiser from NH to Findley State Park in Ohio. Google Maps gives me these three options- I-90W I-86W I-84 to80W Any opinions on which would be the better route? Thanks, Roger we leave from just off I-84 in Ct..granted it is just west of Waterbury....but I like 84 to 81 in Scranton to 80 out to In or Oh.....for a few reasons.....can stop at Mohegan Sun @ Pocono Downs for the night easily and safely....there is a nice KOA off 80 around State College,Pa and on 80 in Ohio can stay in the rest area with hookups....and I don't think the traffic is any worst this way than any other....Chuck

RE: ohio turnpike overnight parking

some of the rest areas along ohio turnpike have rv parking with w/e for 20 dollars but web site says 40 ft. max length and you must leave 15ft. between units.so pulling 35ft. 5er can I unhook and park the truck along side or some place else or are these only usable by MH less than 40' or truck and trailer combinations less than 40'? Anyone have any experience at these sites. we have used the camper spots in the rest area numerous times with a 43 ft motorhome....now I unhook as it is not a big deal and then backin.....but last time I stopped 2 motorhome decided to park long ways blocking two other spots in the process...and then hid inside as others pulled in unable to use them......some of the elect is 30 amp ..some 50...so check the pole when deciding where to park....I think it is a great idea...would take me longer to get off the interstate,find a campground..than it did to unhook and hook up in same spot..Chuck

RE: Hudson Valley NY to Florida

My wife and I are planning on driving down to Florida in March/April towing our TT. I would like to avoid the "trouble/traffic" areas of I95 and was thinking of taking I81 down towards Virginia instead of 95 through NJ, MD, etc. I don't mind going a little out of the way if it means avoiding traffic and driving on an open highway, but am concerned that 81 may be too much out of the way. Anyone have any suggestions? Also, I remember from driving down in the past without an RV that there are certain areas where you cannot go through with propane, but can't remember exactly where. I want to avoid these areas completely with the TT this time. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I go 84 to Newburgh,NY...then 87 south to Sufferin,NY to 287..stay on 287 to 78 west to 81...stay on 81 to I-66 in Va..just past Winchester...go down 66 for 25 miles to Va rt 17 stay on this 4 lane road to I-95 , just north of Richmond,va......great ride...Chuck

RE: Leak at rear bed room slide

I posted on here about a month ago about my leak. A forum member suggested raising one side of the MH which I did and it stopped the leak. I went in a minute ago to check it out since we have had some rain, it was not wet but when I moved the slide out then back in it was wet where it was before Now this is not clear water it is a brown looking color like a rot wood or rust color, also as I stated it looked like the water was coming from the inside of the slide (the enclosed section) it is on the front right hand corner it you are standing at the foot of the bed. Planning on taking it in to a service center as soon as it warms up a bit. Does any one have any suggestions as to where the leak is coming from. Want to put up for sale but every time I get ready something else pops up. Sorry about long thread. Thanks Roy Camping World sells a roof sealant....forget the name right now..but comes in clear or white in Qts or gallon size......can put in on with a old brush or trowel..thick but brush works well.....i do the roof of all my RV's over the yrs and had 8 total.....BUT,I don't do the whole roof.....I use a brush and do all the seams and all the spots that have screws....wipe with a rag as I go..look for rust spots and any flaking....and then just check rest of the roof for any cracks and cover if see a spot that might leak.....It took me a Qt to do a 41 ft motorhome...... I did this to all my RV's every 2-3 years ......Chuck

RE: Feb 1st were out of here need a 1st night plan or alternate.

Well were going to give a try to get on our way Feb 1st. Leaving Richmond Mi. and heading toward Fla. Williston Crossings for a month. If I get on the road early and if I have decent weather it is 375 miles to KY Horse Park. I drive under 65 so I think we can make it before 5PM. The next night I plan on staying at Harvest Moon near the KY/ GA border about 325 miles the second day. I am not thinking of dewinterizing the first night just heat some water on the stove and wash up. Maybe second day dewinterize if the weather looks good. Now the question is what alternatives are there if something happens and the first days drive becomes too long. This a new new TT and I have not pulled it very much only a couple hundred miles. I however am not new to towing and RVing with well over 100,000 miles in our last 4 camping units ( 3 MH's and 1 TT ). I have made this trip a few times and it is hit and miss weatherwise. Right now the 15 day forecast looks OK but you know how that goes. Also any alternatives to going through Atlanta. And for Night 3 around the GA. Fla. line. My reservations at the RV park in Williston are not until Feb. 4th. There is a nice campground off of 75 at exit 129 called Whispering Hills RV in Georgetown,Ky.....cut down the first days trip some what Also, i think that campground next to Camping world ,mentioned ,i another post here..is still closed...would cll to double check....but at exit 80 is a new campground at carroll's sasuage co...Chuck

RE: Raleigh to Grand Rapids MI

RP, You could also go west on I-64 from Lexington to Louisville and then go north on I-65 to Indi. We don't go that way because we are usually going to the FMCA free camp in Cinci when we go north or south. Matt Matt, you mean the FMCA still will let you stay for free...haven't shut it down yet...seems like all the benefits of joining the FMCA have slowly being done away with...and the best the mail forwarding...also went by the wayside....very disappointing..Chuck
