RE: Campgrounds Near Walt Disney World

If you don't want to pay the fee to bring and park your vehicle at WDW, or pay for a taxi over, the KOA in Davenport has a free shuttle. Not sure which others in the area have that. We enjoyed it while we were there.

RE: Have you ever heard of paying for pre-delivery inspection??

Look at new car deals you see in a newspaper or a flyer and you'll see fine print at the bottom that adds "Freight" and "PDI" charges to the price. At least, that's how it is here. I wouldn't suspect that RV deals are any different.

RE: Dillon Sc

Always use Pedro as a stopover on the way to Myrtle Beach. We don't pass that way on the way down to Florida, though, else we would then too. Hard to beat the price for FHU

RE: Deposit fee for dogs

There is a CG in the Fla Keys that has the $25 dog deposit for dogs. Have no problem with it since we pu after our dog. Got the $25 back the morning we left. Don Exactly. The only ones who should be concerned about this deposit would be the irresponsible ones. Now that I think of it, I believe Jolly Roger had that kind of deposit when we stayed there.

RE: What is the most stressful part of driving your coach?

The only stress I feel is when I approach a construction zone. You know the idiots out there are treating the RV like an 18-wheeler in front of them... have to hurry up to try to race in front of it instead of settling behind it. Some clown is always going to floor it to cut in front of you at the point where, if he doesn't, he's hitting a cone or few.

RE: Deposit fee for dogs

I'd have to assume that, if no reports of you not picking up after your dog or constant yapping, and no actual damage to the property, then you'd get the deposit back. Just another way to try to get irresponsible owners to be more conscious of the fact that there are other people in close proximity trying to enjoy the campground too.

RE: First season with your RV or travel trailer-what did you do?

My first season, we went to Myrtle Beach for 2 weeks for Easter, PEI for 2 weeks in the summer, and weekend camping trips not terribly far from home. Seasonal sites aren't for me. I don't like the idea of spending my vacation in the same place all the time. Too many great things to see. I wouldn't change a thing if this was new to me today.

RE: setting five months run the engine or not?

No need to run the chassis engine over winter. Stored vehicles over winter for decades without running them with no ill effects. Sure, gas is less expensive now than it used to be last year, but why waste it? Exercise the genny only.

RE: Necessity of a spare?

I carry a spare, not that I would trust it much. However, if I ever have a blowout, I don't need to worry about roadside assistance sending me a truck that's going to sell me a tire right then and there while bending me over a barrel because I'm desperate and they're my only option. Change me into my old spare and I'll limp somewhere where I can shop around and get it changed at a normal price.

RE: Ontario Health Card renewal from out of Canada??

Still, there should be an out of country mechanism. I know I'm not alone in this. No, there absolutely should not be. You can't give a door for fraudsters to use. It's bad enough that the old white and red cards with no photos or security features at all are still accepted.

RE: Ontario Health Card renewal from out of Canada??

I would also call your supplementary insurance to make sure that they see it the same way OHIP does. A lot of these insurance companies will latch onto anything to weasel out. This right here is very important. Just because the Province has no problem with it, doesn't mean that they won't. You don't want to wait until something happens to find out that they do.

RE: RV Park Reviews??

The only thing I don't like about the new RV Park Reviews is that you have to navigate more than you had to in the previous version. When you got to the list of all parks in a certain city, in that one view you were able to click on the link for their websites. Now, you have to go into the details for each campground to get their website link. A minor annoyance, but an annoyance nonetheless.

RE: Passport America Campgrounds

You're going to get good and bad with PA. It's very easy for it to pay for itself. Many campgrounds only have certain sites available for the discount and, if they're rented, you're SOL. For example - Jolly Roger in Marathon, FL only offers the discount on the smaller internal sites. Then there are campgrounds where it doesn't matter and can get the discount on any site. Every campground is free to set whatever restriction it wants, as long as there is one site that they allow the discount to be applied to at some point.

RE: Tips for reducing set-up time?

Man, an hour and a half has got to be OCD when it comes to setting up. Even in a campground I've never been to before, I can stop on the road and check out the site in a minute or two for obstructions, know where I want to set up, get in, level, slide out, hook up, get out the ground carpets and the chairs and pull out the awnings in around 10 minutes. What is he doing? Raking the site, getting on his hands and knees with scissors making sure the grass is cut to exactly the same length? The best way to shorten set up time - stop overthinking it.

RE: passing signal

I think we need to concentrate on educating people on how to use their signals properly as intended now in the first place before we even think about discussing trying to get something like this going.

I love South Of The Border.

RE: Facebook

No one says you have to tell facebook your real birthday. I'm not a New Year baby, but my birthday on facebook is the same as I set it when I first started... Jan 1 of the year I was born. Only a quick setting away.

RE: Another Blowout!

If you blew the same tire you have other issues. It was not the same tire...same wheel. Inner tire blew last time. Outer this time. Old tire last time. Brand new tire this time. Wait... if they took an old tire and moved it from the outside position to the inside position (since your NEW tire blew on the outside), I would hope that they made sure that your tires DO NOT have a directional pattern. I know that mine do. There is an arrow on the tire near the rim to show which direction they should be rotating when going forward. To mount a tire from the outside position to the inside requires flipping the rim around, so your tire which was rotating counter-clockwise when going forward is now rotating clockwise going forward, unless they unmounted and re-mounted that one too (which I doubt).

RE: Myrtle Beach

Not sure about the rates elsewhere, but I can tell you at Pirateland, your golf cart rental is going to cost you more than the rental of an regular sized vehicle at a car rental location.

RE: What makes RV'ing special to you?

I like the idea of being able to go wherever I'd like to go. I had the option to buy a permanently installed unit in a campground and, while I didn't entirely hate the idea, I didn't like the idea of always vacationing at the same place all the time. Some people have cottages and like that kind of thing, I get it... but I like seeing different things. I also like walking around a campground and seeing the different units out there and what people have done with them. RVers are, for the most part, friendly folk and willing to have a conversation on just about anything.
