RE: Awning cleaning

When you sprayed, did you start next to the wall, or did you spray a bit along the edge and roll a bit up, then spray some more. As it rolls, did it clean the top too? sprayed the whole awning without rolling....once it was all covered, I rolled it up. It cleans the top as well when you roll it back up. I can't see why magic eraser is easier.....I don't have to scrub. And with my COPD, scrubbing would mean lose my breath right away!

Awning cleaning

The underneath of my awning was getting dirty.....So, after watching some videos online, I decided to do it the easy way which they call the two beer system ! I bought a 2 gal. garden sprayer...... Mix four parts water, one part bleach and some Dawn dish soap. Sprayed the awning, , rolled it back up and waited. I don't drink beer unless it's very hot, so I had a few glasses of white wine with my wife, sitting on our lounge chairs in the front yard. After an hour, I rolled down the awning and rinse it thoroughly......WOW !!! all white again, and didn't affect the upper color of the awning. Conclusion: it works!

RE: Let's talk about NEXT wintah!

No RV for us next winter. We are renting a beachfront condo on the ocean side for a month. Don't want to deal with with the RV or a campsite. All we have to take is our clothes in the car and buy food when we get there. Everything included, even the toilet paper. Washer and dryer too. If I get real lazy, I might fly down and rent a car. Same here....We already reserved a condo for two weeks in Destin (panhandle). Two bedrooms, living area, full kitchen and right on the beach. Not that cheap (1000 a week) but all worth it. We're taking three weeks....we will drive there. Three weeks away from Maine during the winter months is a big thing for us.

RE: Review issues!

Reviews are not always accurate. . . . Goes to show the website owners can decide on what to make visible to the visitors. Can the same thing happen with the campgrounds reviews.....possibly ! Unless you go to an independent site like Trip Advisor maybe ! Interesting. My negative reviews of campgrounds in Alaska that I wrote in 2013 are still on the RVParkReviews.com Website. So I don't think that theory works for that Website. RVParkReviews is similar to Trip Advisor....... I wonder if it still would be there if you wrote that review on the campground website !!!

RE: Review issues!

Reviews are not always accurate. My wife left a dental office to work for another dentist. When she went online to look at the previous dentist website, she noticed a lot of negative reviews regarding that office,...........and suddenly, those negative reviews disappeared, leaving only the positive and neutral. Goes to show the website owners can decide on what to make visible to the visitors. Can the same thing happen with the campgrounds reviews.....possibly ! Unless you go to an independent site like Trip Advisor maybe !

RE: Fighting for campsites 6 months in advance!

There's a campground we go to in Old Orchard Beach, Maine the first week of July. When we arrive, you put a deposit for the next year........been that way for 7 years now. If we don't do it, we'll lose our favorite site.

RE: What rights do campers have in regards to reservations.

RE: Acadia and Northeast

Can't agree more.....Tvov is right when he says kids may be a little too young. Find a campground with kid activities............or divide your trip in two and like someone else mentioned, go to Old Orchard Beach first, which is 3 1/2 hours south of Acadia . Seven miles of beach, amusement parks, arcades, waterparks etc etc. My favorite campground is Hid'n Pines close to it all.

RE: Acadia and Northeast

Being from Maine, I get the chance to go often to Acadia. Schoodic Woods: Situated in Winter Harbor (about an hour from Acadia NP). They do have a free shuttle that will bring you to Acadia and Bar Harbor. Sites have water /Electricity but there are NO SEWER. The nicest campground of them all. Bar Harbor Campground: No Reservation. (first come, first serve).....maybe not your best option. I think they don't take credit cards. Smuggler's Den: Situated in Southwest Harbor. Good sites, full hook-ups and free shuttle to Acadia Mt Desert Narrows: Nicely situated,but I think they are over priced. On top of your campsite fee, you have a resort fee !!!!!!! Timberland campground: Located in Trenton....Free shuttle, full hookups. campground is not bad at all.

RE: summer trip ideas in New England

Welcome to Maine. As you said, kids that age want to go to fun places. I would suggest Old Orchard Beach....... Seven miles beach, amusement parks, water slide parks etc etc. Close by, is York with the animal kingdom, and fun rides. Our favorite campground is Hid'n Pines which we have a site reserved the first week of July year after year. There's a shuttle bus that brings you to the beach and a grocery store is conveniently located next to the campground. Don't get me wrong.......I love Acadia National Park(we go there every year), but with the ages of your kids (5 and 2), you probably will end up carrying them.

RE: Hybrids must be hibernating

I feel sorry for those of you who can RV only part of the year! Here in AZ we RV year round. Cool mountains in the summer, warm deserts in the winter. We have a 5th wheel now, but used our Hybrid for over 10 years. Quite often camped with lows in the 30's without issue. Clipped on tent covers (popop gizmos) which helped to hold heat in considerably. Living in Maine, we camp only part of the year......but one thing we have and you don't is the anticipation, and then the excitement. Our hybrid is parked in front of the house, and we look at it during the winter months with anticipation. When spring arrives,the first thing we look forward to is to remove the cover from it, and go inside. Then it's opening the tent ends and the slide out, and start dreaming of our summer trips. Folks in the cold and snowy states know what I'm talking about! Dre

RE: Chemical.....Deodorant

I might try that Lemon Verbena Multi-Surface Concentrate Cleaner

RE: Chemical.....Deodorant

First of all, I don't put anything in my black tank but water. I have never had any odors. As far as the grey tank, I would assume that bath soap and dish soap going in there would keep it odor free. Unless you are putting food scraps down the drain, which I make sure I do not, I can't see anything that would cause a smell. If I have questionable liquids from cooking, I always put them down the toilet. And that just means all the grease etc will stick to the sensors in the black tank instead of the gray!! :B We have bacon and eggs in the morning, we will rinse our plates over the sink.....We have pasta for dinner, we will rinse our plates over the sink. Not all of that stuff will come out when you empty the tank. Stuff will stick to the grey tank walls and eventually cause a smell. As for the black tank.......My $%^& smells and putting chemical does help. X2 Exactly! And for those that are the nay sayers? That is also why your sensors don't work. I'm happy I'm not the only one who thinks that way

RE: Chemical.....Deodorant

Black tank I can see because you open the valve and the smell can waft out; but grey tank should always have a water seal between you and the tank so no smell enters the coach. If you have a bad smell in your coach from grey water THEN YOU HAVE A PLUMBING PROBLEM that needs to be addressed. There are no smell in my camper. I just thought that after a while, there are residue that will stick to the walls of the grey tank, and there must be a product that should get rid of those.

Chemical.....Deodorant

Just curious......I know most of us if not all, put toilet chemical or deodorant in the black tank. My question is: Does anyone put anything in their grey tank, which would be chemical in a liquid form. Thanks Dre

RE: Fresh water tank-is it needed?

Don't need waste holding tanks either If you use city water, you will need both of those tanks if you're gonna wash dishes, have showers and go bathroom.

RE: Rocwood Roo vs. Jayco JayFeather Hybrid

Are we the lucky ones or what......we're on our third hybrid and we never needed support after sale. Cosmetic problems I can fix.....We never had any other problems with our Hybrids (Travelstar, Palomino, and now a Roo)
