RE: Best route to Florida with 5th wheel

Planning my first trip to Ft. Myres, stopping on the way, and need best route through NY,NJ and DC. can go a cpl of different routes...we're leaving 4/6..probably go 84 to Newburgh,NY then 87 south to 287 west to 78..then 78 out to 81 and down to 66 in Va to rt 17 to 95 just north of Richmond...then down 95 to 26 to Columbia,SC then 20 out to Ga and pick up rt 83 at exit 113..take 83 all the way down to 75 just north of Macon...and down to Tally...Chuck In the summer probably would stay on 81 to 77 then straight down 77 to Columbia ...but not sure what the weather maybe like in a cpl of weeks

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 Hey Bill, do you still go to Pine Hill...last time I was there it seemed empty and the price was quite a bit on the upside......Chuck

RE: Va i77 campground

Hi all. Looking at going to savannah in few weeks. Like to split trip up and spend night in va (maybe Nc) and was wondering if any suggestions? Just spending night nothing fancy required. @ the junction of I-81 and I-77 there is a campground @ exit 80 that is called Ft Chiswell C/G in Max Meadow,Va...a great in and out campground with all pull thrus Also in Hardeeville,SC there are two campgrounds...and the ride to the Riverfront in Savannah is less than 15 minutes...Cape Lake Jasper and Hardeeville RV-Thomas...Chuck

RE: Bangor Me to Florida Suggested Routes

.then using above ,go down 81 to I-66 for 25 miles to Va rt 17 to I-95....above Richmond,Va...this is a good route with only limited amount of steep grades a good way to avoid the balt/DC mess. bumpy ^ what he said! we avoid nyc and nj too. Either stay on 84 through ct into pa then take 81 from Scranton. A little quicker is to get off 84 in ct onto 684 then 287 across the tappan zee bridge. Then you can take 80 or 78 over to 81. This avoids all the major cities except Hartford. Hartford is very easy to get through at night if you can time your trip for it. there are a few different routes to take back to 95 in va. 77 has a 7 1/2 mile steep grade at fancy gap. 64 has a long grade also, but I do not think it is as steep. avoid nyc, nj, Baltimore, dc, if you can! If you do not have one, get an ez pass for tolls. with it, most tolls you simply slow down through, some you do not even slow at all. Tolls are much easier and faster easier with one. The only state on that route that did not accept it is fl. They might accept it now, I am not sure. You can stay on 84 to 81 in Scranton......but not the best roads or route....too much construction and can get some weather this time of the year.....taking 84 to NY , then in NY pickup 684 to 87 across the Tap will work....I prefer the 84 to 87 crossing the Hudson in Newburgh....then 287 to 78 to 81 the ez-pass doesn't work in Florida but can buy the Sunpass at any service area if you plan on going far south and use the Florida Tkpe....Chuck

RE: By pass Atlanta

I will be traveling from Charlotte NC to Pensacola Fl. Next week. The primary route (I-85) goes thru Altanta Ga. Other than the beltway around Atlanta, is there any way to avoid the Atlanta traffic? Bob, if it really bothers you...I would go 77 to 20 in Columbia out 20 to exit 113 take Ga rt 83 down to 75...75 down to Tifton,Ga..to 319 to 19 in Thomasville,Ga to Tallahasse. to 1-10 to Pensacola...now, is it longer or slower, I don't know...Chuck

RE: Bangor Me to Florida Suggested Routes

I-295, I-95, I-495, I-290, I-90, I-84, I-81, I-64, I-95. Or instead of I-64, take I-77 south to I-26 at Columbis SC, then over to I-95. Paul, I use the above route with a few modifications......also I never saw your final destination..... but, once on 84 thru Conn, and in NY I would take 87 south toward NYC @ Newburgh,NY...to I-78 @ Sufferin,NY...pickup 287 west for 45 miles to I-78...then 78 to I-81....then using above ,go down 81 to I-66 for 25 miles to Va rt 17 to I-95....above Richmond,Va...this is a good route with only limited amount of steep grades Now.....the second route above...stay on I-81 to I-77 and then straight down I-77 to Columbia,SC is another great route....@ Columbia,SC..then can head over to I-75 and west coast of Florida...or go out I-26 toward 95 and the east coast....alot of good campgrounds along either route....Chuck

RE: Good Sams or FMCA Road side Assistance

Just got my notice from Good Sams to renew and was wondering if any one has information on the new FMCA program. Is it Coach Net with a new name or if not who is doing the towing. I got a year free with my new Winnebago 3 years ago . The price is the same 99.00 dollars. We have CN and have had good and bad service with them.....BUT, the TROUBLE with FMCA is that under the new LEADERSHIP....benefits seem to come and go.....OR change providers.....I,for one, am a little skeptical of using any benefits offered from FMCA any longer...Chuck

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: Kennebunkport, Maine to Tallahassee, Florida
