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

RE: Places for pitstop along 95 to Florida

Ok, my trip in February is all booked from Eastern Pa to Fort Meyers and Ft. Lauderdale with a few overnights in between. Now all I need to know is there a website that gives you good, easy to stop places to stop and have lunch, stretch etc.? In October on our first trip we saw a sign that said visitor's center in the middle of some town in VA I believe and it turned into a nightmare. The visitor center was in the middle of this town that no way could you navigate with a 35ft motorhome. Thank God some nice road workers, stopped traffic so we could turn around in a church parking lot! LOL! Anyway, you know what I am looking for and appreciate the help! If you have a modern phone...you cam load on it Allstays camp and RV for $9.99....and throw away all the camping books.....best thing I found...the other app is iExit..which is like the next Exit book but ,Both of these apps know your location and give you on the spot info But, we also have found that Cracker Barrel and most truck stops...ie,Pilot have decent rest in them to eat....and each stop may have different choice...just saw a Pilot with a 5-Guys in it...Chuck

RE: Charleston vs Savanna?

How long would you allow in each? Must sees? Where to stay? I am drawn to Red Gate in Savannah, but am open to others. Convenience counts & their shuttle service sounds good. Which city did you prefer &why? Thanks! RVCrazy,both cities are really great..coming from a northern boy....If you can do 3 or 4 days in each......and i enjoyed either the wagon of trolley rides first, gives you a great perspective of each and then plan from there..... Like mentioned on here, the campground selection is limited but in Savannah,we actually stay in Hardeeville,SC...and it is a 10 minute ride to the visitor center and river walk..... many great places to eat...but DO NOT MISS Mrs Wilkes Boarding House on 197 W Jones st...it is only open from 11am to 2 pm ..Mon to Fri..get there in line by 10:45.....you will not be sorry In Charleston, we stayed at Oak Plantation...many like James Island and it is a great place but we had trouble going in with low trees and vines..lost a/c cover.....

RE: N MI to Navarre FL

Mid February we will be heading from Northern Michigan to St. Rosa RV Park in Navarre FL. Google Maps suggest I65 to exit 93 at Evergreen AL. Then 31 to Brewton AL and then 41/87 to Navarre. Any watch outs with this route or are there better choices for some reason ? We don't drive long days when we are towing, so at least 2 nights on the road would be needed. This time of year we will most likely stay at least the first night in a hotel, but if the temps are high enough we might opt for setting up camp and de_winterizing for the second night on the road. Any campground recommendations would be appreciated. Thanks in advance for any help. There is a great county campground in Greenville,Ala..right off the interstate...called Shirling Park....think it is exit 130...site 1 is a great pull thru..Chuck

RE: Heading South From Indiana to FL AVOID ATL

I wil be heading south on I-65 headed to Bonita Springs FL. I want to avoid and take the path of least resistance thru or around Atlanta. Suggestions. I will probably stop at DeSoto State Park in Alabama the night before I tackle Atlanta Which will bring me into Atlanta on I-75. Thanks Not that I have a problem with Atlanta.....if I did go thru,it would be straight thru on 75... But if I was coming down 65,I would and have continued straight down 65 to Montgomery and there pickup 231 thru Dothan to 10 to 75..really a great ride some good campgrounds along the way...Cave Cty,Ky.....Cullman,Ala and some other ones along 231....Chuck

RE: Ohio to Cape Cod

Looks like I have three options.... Either take I80, I90, or I70. The first two are toll roads all the way across NY, and PA, and I70 will drop me right into NYC. Are there any other options that I'm not aware of that either won't cost an arm and a leg or get me stuck in NYC traffic? I read the other 2 posts..and they all get you to the Cape...but we live not too far off 84...and go to the Cape and to In....from there..I would go 80 to Pa and then go north on 81 to Scranton to 84 ,straight across to the Mass line and pickup 90 to 495 ,right out to the Cape..90 a toll road...but not a big deal.....this is the best route I have come up with.......I stay at Mohegan Sun @ Pocono Downs in Pa and then at the first rest area on the Ohio Tpke....80.....which have elect ,water and a dump....Chuck

RE: Cracked Windshield - need help please!

We are in the middle of our road trip. Our windshield has a crack that is spreading like wildfire! Is there a way to stop it from getting worse? We would also appreciate suggestions on where to have it replaced. Normally...they just crack and you can still drive,as long as, it doesn't effect the driver If your insurance covers the windshield....call them with for a claim...we did..then they hooked us up with RV Glass Solution...who arranged it all for us.....in our travels...Chuck

RE: Macerator pump issues

Help please! My 2013 Winnebago Vista 35F has 1-1/2 baths. The half bath has it's own black tank with a macerator pump to pump the waste to the dump. After opening the valves to dump and operating the pump I get barely a trickle of liquid and the pump shuts off after running about a minute. After a short time I can run the pump again with the same results. I'm assuming that the pump works but is overheating due to the lack of liquid flowing through it. I'm guessing I have a clog between the black tank and the pump. Any suggestions on clearing the clog that doesn't involve a really nasty mess on me and in the compartment where the pump is? Thanks in advance for your help! Tommy, it maybe too late for this now...but i put 4 oz of water softner in my toilet..then flush,I found that it will flush so much easier..so everytank I add 4oz... seems to lube the macerator ...Chuck

RE: Route south

I drove my van up 33 and 209 in early May. Very slow thru the Stroudsburg area and first part of the Gap Park. The weather was nice so the weekend visitors were out early. Usually early spring and late fall it isn't conjested. Looked like a lot of new commercial construction since I last used that route. After the Dingman Falls turn off there was almost no traffic. Ran on up to Albany area and then east on 7 and 9 to Manchester. Nice drive if you aren't in a hurry. I use it to get away from the construction....had it on 84 from exit 1 into Pa and then like I said on 87 south by the rest area.....plus after awhile the traffic on 287 gets old..need a break

RE: Route south

I have used all the above mentioned routes. The Tap Zee is great unless there is some major traffic tie up. Its free southbound but expensive north bound. My present favorite route is 90 to 87 to 287 to 78 to 81 to 64. Been using this route to/from Maine the past three years or so with zero big delays. Avoids all the big city traffic but a few miles longer and some tolls. Usually roll along at 65 to 70 the entire time. 84 to 684 to Tap Zee is shorter to 287 but 84 is a PITA and traffic can back up for miles at the Tap Zee. If you use the Tap Zee consider 78 to 81 as it avoids the steep grades from Scranton on south if you take 84 to 81. Mid day traffic rolls right thru NY and NJ and Pa on my route. From your home area my first stop would be Western Village near Carlisle off 81 (long pull thrus and easy on/off. Next day I would be in Richmond by early afternoon. Two easy days. Bill, is all the construction around the Rampo rest area on 87 all done? good to hear..wasn't sure so 1st week of dec,came back thru 33 and 209...
