RE: Disk Brakes and suspension maintenance

Our River Stone Legacy came standard with the disc brakes which was on my list of must things, also 8,000lb axles and H rated tires. Very pleased with them and will probably never get a unit without them now.

RE: toll plaza selection on I-95 - MD to PA

Toll booth lanes are wide enough, I used to run UPS doubles thru all the time just watch your mirrors. In getting a ticket there are 2 spots on the Pa pike in the machines that disperse the ticket one low and one high, most of the times it senses a large vehicle and uses the top one. Do you have a class A or C motorhome? It should sense it as a large vehicle but you might have to stretch a little.

RE: toll plaza selection on I-95 - MD to PA

The wife says that each vehicle NOW needs to be registered to the ez pass account, even a trailer, but we still just move the transponder to which vehicle we are using. We have 2 transponders on our account and use them between 4 vehicles with only one that tows our 5th wheel. Getting on the Pa. turnpike from 476 they have normal lanes that are both got tickets and ez pass but they have a high speed lane in the center that you move thru at highway speed, but you have to get back to the right to get to the east west turnpike, it's not really bad I used to do it with a tractor trailer without a issue.

RE: toll plaza selection on I-95 - MD to PA

Mine in De. is the same pass for all my vehicles, but we have always just went and used it not matter and was always billed correctly or sent something in the mail, then all we did was send them the transponder# and then they took it out of the account. On 95 I would stay on the right lanes where the trucks seem to go, sometimes the lanes are a little wider, depending where you are getting on in Pa. ( I assume on 476) look for the EZ Pass only lane it is towards the left and high speed so I believe 2 lanes each way.

RE: Stupidity at its finest

I’m just curious... how many states enforce the length laws? Ohio has a max length of 65 ft yet 53 ft trailers are very common behind conventional tractors with sleepers. There is no way they are within the 65 ft rule. Commercial vehicles are covered under different laws then the rv's are, I towed double trailers up and down I95 and length was close to 72'. Look on some states that allow triple pups and even double 53' So commercial laws are different

RE: RT 896 - 301 overnight.

Lums Pond State Park in Bear De. just off of Rt.896, get off the last exit on 95 I believe 1-A at the 8th light turn left, Rt. 71 campground about a mile or two down on left, all full hook ups but also all back in sites. Farther down in Middletown on the southbound side there is a Walmart if you like useing them, have seen campers in there for the night a lot of times.

RE: Tankless water heater

As someone has said when they are on the heating process yes they are loud, ours inside is hard to hear but outside they side like a blow torch. Inside in the bathroom I look at the panel to see if the heater has turned on. They all seem to take a learning curve on how they operate and each brand is different, we have a Girard 2 model.

RE: Upgrading to new 5th Wheel - need advice!

You might want to take a look at the new River Stone and also their Legacy line from Forest River, more in line with a DRV or the Heartland Landmark. Comes standard with thicker walls and also dual pane windows plus upgraded axles, tires and disc brakes. More of a full timer type unit.

RE: Avoiding Washington and Baltimore

I use the 301 route, get off 95 at exit #104 and follow the signs to get to 301, it does have sections with some lights and yes it might slow down but I prefer this way and there is some construction at some places but then where is there not construction. The 95 route as has been said is 495 around DC then the shortest way around Baltimore is 695 East across the Scot Key Bridge, you can take 695 west for free but is a bit longer. Good luck on your choice and safe travels

RE: How many miles are on your Tow Vehicle??

Just turned 640.000 last year, we have owned the truck for only 5 years and it basically only moves when the camper goes. it was a commercial freight truck first and we are the 3rd owner pulling a rv with it.

RE: Knoebels at halloween

We stay in the Canada section for the Cover Bridge Festival and we have a 42' 5th wheel towed with a semi, we ( I ) do have to be selective on which turns I make but I really do not have any issues getting around or in the site. I believe we camp on Manitoba

RE: I-70 Moab area thru Denver

As others of said weather can always be iffy, we were just up that way last weekend and of course with a holiday weekend and ski season traffic was a nightmare both ways.

RE: Where to go...East coast for a month (reverse snowbird)

Also check out Country Acres in the Lancaster area, it is close to a lot of the tourist things to do. Spring Gulch is very nice but a large hill divides the campground but they are near Shady Maple. This area can get HOT in the summer as well and as said before the farther north usually the cooler it can be.

RE: Driving in St. Louis?

Another vote for the Casino Queen campground, we visited there with our full size Kenworth and 40' 5th wheel, no problem getting in or out to the interstate and having the security take us to and from the train station saved us unloading the Smart car off to drive around.

RE: Towing with an F-450.

We tow with a full size Kenworth tractor with a Smart car on the deck, 42 5th wheel behind and do not stop at weigh scales, as said above, not getting paid and no commercial marking on the truck. The truck is also registered as a RV, in 5 years so far never been chased down or stopped, some LEO have admired and complimented us on our set up as well. This has been discussed many times on the Escapee forums in the HDT section if you would like to check it out there. I think I saw you in 2013 at the Gunnison KOA. If it wasn't you then you have a twin running around out there. Now that's funny because we have been told that before, we actually just bought it that year in June so you might have seen the previous owner.
