RE: protocal at fuel stops

^^^^^ That's one of the reasons I look for RV lanes... Been there.. Done that...I was blocked in front and back one trip for 30 minutes.. The guy behind me had to wait for someone else to move so he could back up enough to allow me to back out of the pump when I was done.. If you call inside, They will tell the people to move, Terry. I honestly had no idea that worked!??? Sounds like I will have to try that on the next trip...

RE: Best way south around Baltimore tunnel

It all depends on what part of PA your coming from??? East - Central - Western... Where will you be starting from ? We're starting out just south of Philly. We're right off of I95 close to the DE border. then the 2 choices I would use are: 95S to 695 over Key Bridge.. back to 95S.. around DC.. down to 295 around Richmond to 64 East -- OR-- 95S exit onto 896 S.. take 896 to 301/50.. cross the Bay Bridge.. stay on 301/50 into Bowie... hop on 301 S... down to 95 just north of Richmond ( mile marker # 104 )

RE: Best way south around Baltimore tunnel

It all depends on what part of PA your coming from??? East - Central - Western... Where will you be starting from ? I had the same question. Ok, with some stalking on their website. They mention that Jellystone in Quarryville, PA is "local", so I'm guessing eastern PA. Given that, I'd go with the route proposed in the OP - 95 to I-695 S (on the east side) to I-95. Though, getting to 301 to 17 doesn't appear to be awful from where they may be. I dislike the idea of lights on a drive like that and would rather slab it, but to each his own. While Rt. 13 seems scenic, it feels like it's a fair bit out of the way. Per Google Maps, 301 is about an extra hour over 95. And Rt. 13 is another 1/2 hour. Of course, that assumes you don't hit major traffic in Baltimore or DC. I agree... BUT if a bit further west , they can take 83 down to the western side of Baltimore onto the western spur of 695..

RE: tonnaeu

I also use a rolnlock cover. For me this is the only bed cover to buy.:) I had that on my last truck and loved it... BUT I did not like the idea that I had to open the cover every time I opened the tailgate since the cover latches onto it... The jackrabbit is almost exactly the same as the Roll-N-Lock , but it latches on the side rail , giving full access to the tailgate without opening the cover.. This was more of a problem in the winter with snow and ice on the cover...

RE: protocal at fuel stops

Same protocol as with any gas/fuel station. Get in line, wait your turn, fill up and get out of the way. Problem is when folks take a spot at the pump and then go inside to shop/eat whatever and leave their rig unattended and blocking the pump line long after their tanks are full. I too do the same as almost all the above folks.. wait my turn.. pull up.. prepay , and fill up.. once filled , I pull forward enough to allow the rig behind me to pull up and start his fill... If we are taking a break , instead of pulling up , I park and walk the dog -from a parking spot , NOT the fuel islands.. I try and look for RV lanes first , all too many time those long haul drivers have pulled up but are in shopping and stretching legs while I am behind them with no way to get out once filled... I see the need for that , so I try and avoid when possible..

RE: Fulltiming with a CPAP

I just upgraded to the ResMed S-9... It is night and day over what I was using... It also detaches the humidifier incase I want to travel lighter without it... I do so when flying for business.... Automatic airflow , just put the mask on and take a breath... I just got a new one from the VA Resmed s9 vpap auto and its the best machine I ever had I sleep like a baby with it. Ditto on the humidifier. I was a little nervous of changing brands but thing is great. Waiting now on a 12 v dc cord for the rv. I got my 12Vdc cord and carrying case for all at the same time... What a nice setup.. Also , I had to get re certified for my CDL Medical Card.. They are now checking for apnea.. All I had to do was take the SD card out of the machine , run it over to the center , they downloaded all my info and I was done..

RE: Outdoor Televisions

LoL yes voices vary as well. some carry and others you strain to hear a word. My hard of hearing neighbour (20 feet away) is a very nice guy just has to have it turned up while he reads. It is more white noise for him. I am not at all opposed to TV's in the front basement or on a table outside. Most newer TV's have crappy backfiring speakers. My DW has hearing aids, blue tooth, so she watches TV and listens thru her hearing aids. She has a remote button that can even mute me. Back to the origonal thread. SO........ If you give me the name of those Bluetooth hearing aids , I can get a pair and mute wife and kids??? :B. Now that's a must have at times!!!8 Happy Camping..... Joe

RE: tonnaeu

I have a Pace Edwards Full Metal Jackrabbit that stays on all the time. Pull it all the way back when not towing to hide things in the bed. And keeps the hitch out of the weather. Pull it back to near the hitch when towing if I have something in the front of the bed I want to hide. Me too... Love it... I can close it all the way and lock it... I can open it all the way.. Or I can open it every 12 inches.. The best part is the fact that it does NOT attach to the tailgate , this way I can open and close the tailgate without opening the cover...

RE: Gift Idea help for 5th wheel.

$1000 pre paid fuel card... easy to store and super useful. May I adopt you ? :B All kidding aside... It all depends on the term " they have everything" - -maybe an Amazon gift card... that way they can get whatever they want , even if it is not camping related... Maybe a weekend camping trip somewhere? If you camp , do a dual trip so you all can spend time together.. Last year we sent my In-laws to Disney.. we met them there 1/2 way threw the trip and they loved seeing the kids ..

RE: Removing dealer decals

Same with new vehicles. I usually will remove them during walk around before signing papers or have dealer remove if I can't. They seem a little dismayed with this, I tell them I don't advertise for free. Knock off $500 and we'll talk. I also have the dealer remove them before I'll accept the vehicle. I specifically asked the dealer NOT to put his on once the trailer came in.. I actually had him write it on the agreement.. .. At time of pick up , there were 3 on there... I refused delivery.. they were gone in the matter of minutes.. Anyway , to the OP . heat gun and plastic scraper with little pressure.. followed by some goo gone and wax

RE: Trailer Suspension Upgrade / Help

I had Mor/Ryde install the IS System... Like stated above , its not cheap , but a whole lot cheaper than a new rig.. They are great people to deal with.. They will allow you to stay in your trailer at night while the work is being completed.. If I am not mistaken , it cost me about $3,000.00 for the upgrade.. I can cross RR tracks , feel the TV and NOT feel the trailer.. I also had shelves in the rear always fall.. not since I upgraded.. Look into them..

RE: Fulltiming with a CPAP

I have a Respironics Signal One 60 Series and my wife has a Resmed S9. Both are very quiet and both have detachable humidifiers. Both can operate on 12v DC. Both have autostart and have features that are similar between the machines. The display is nicer (color) on the S9 but for me the Signal One is easier to set. Both are fully data capable and software that allows you to read detailed reports on how effective your treatment is, is available for both. Either one would be fine I think. Thanks for that comparison... Its not every day that someone gives feedback on two items that they actually have both!

RE: 2wd vs 4wd

I stand -- somewhat corrected -- Yes , I have not been around as long as some of you - OLD FOLK - :B .. so I guess my experience is truly based on technology.. which we can all agree has improved most the vehicles of today... I guess I was comparing the 4x4's that I drove and the 4x2's that I drove ( I still vote for the 4x4) and not the old school vehicles.. Either way , you will not catch me towing my 5er down the beach ! :B My kids...all adults...call me the 'ancient mariner' when they see me in my fishing boat...an elderly, Old Town freighter canoe. :B Les Very Nice !! If it floats , it's good to go fishing in ...
