RE: Destin, Fl area

Fort Pickens is a must. Either to camp or just to see. It's a Federal park and not as commercial as Top Sail. By that I mean it's more of a campers park, rather than a RV park. Pickens is our choice in the area. We hate McGuires. Get seafood at Jo Patti's and cook at camp.

RE: South of I-4 between Christmas and New Years no reservations

We ended up getting in at Hillsborough River. We stayed here last year. Not a bad drive to Ft. Desoto for day trips.

RE: Tires

Consider checking with Simple tire. I'm happy with the Hankooks I got there. I'm not a big fan of Chinese brand tires. Had a local shop mount and balance them.

RE: South of I-4 between Christmas and New Years no reservations

Thanks for the encouraging words. I know I can't camp at DeSoto, but I can use it as a day stop. If push comes to shove I can overnight in an industrial area and park on the street, or find a downtown and park on the street, or park in a motel parking lot. If the genset isn't running, there really isn't any way to tell it is occupied. My idea is to overnight cheap and ugly and to move to beachfront during the day. I'll need to get up early to get a good spot. I could never do anything like that with a TT, but it is feasible with a small MH.

RE: Age Limit on Used RV?

The only problem with an older leak free unit is the decals. I think I'm going to remove mine a section at a time and paint the straight decals. Eternabond it right away to keep it leak free. Water is the enemy. I bought my TT new and my MH used. Money wise, I have about 1-2 years of depreciation of a new one in mine. I suggest you look on Ebay to get an idea of actual values. I remember those Apache plastic popups. Growing up we had a Scamper with the blue vinyl cloth. I think there would be a market for a smaller Apache style unit with the solid plastic sides.

RE: South of I-4 between Christmas and New Years no reservations

I called a Cracker Barrel in St. Augustine and one in Clearwater close to Ft. Desoto, and both permit overnight Rv parking. Hmmm. I may not have to cook this trip! The key may be to stay away from extreme southern Fl. I'm going to check Ft. Meyers close to Sanabel. UPDATE. They do.

RE: South of I-4 between Christmas and New Years no reservations

I don't mind Cracker Barrels and Fly'n Js. Tampa, Bradenton or north of Tampa would be perfect. Love Ft. Desoto. AMI. Perfect for day trips. If the weather is nice a jaunt to St. Petersburg. Blue Spring State Park to watch the Manatees. 2 days at each of these places would be perfect. I just need a safe place to park for the night. I may try a walk up in one of the state parks. I just don't want to be tied to 1 place. One reason I didn't make reservations because I believed UK would have a decent chance at a Bowl game over the holidays. After our performance in the Southern Miss game, I realized I needed a plan B. But i've always wanted to try something like this. Looks like the Fly'n J in the Tampa area won't accept RVers. Do Cracker Barrels down there have similar restrictions?

South of I-4 between Christmas and New Years no reservations

I'm fairly new to the motorhome scene. With my TT, we made reservations someplace for a week and stayed there. I'd like to try a more mobile approach without reservations. Will there be boondocking or walk up opportunities in that area of Florida? I know there won't be anything in the Keys, that the Homestead Walmart is a no no, but there is an Indian Casino on Krome Avenue that permits boondocking. Anything I-4 area and south is what I'm talking about. Maybe drive and see the sights during the day, find a nice day park and find a safe place to park for the night. I've never done anything without reservations and I'm a little anxious about it. Has anyone done anything similar? Words of wisdom and good sites?

RE: First Time RV owner...need some advice please!

After you buy, I strongly recommend sealing the entire roof with Eternabond.

RE: Will regular epoxy hold?

Looked at the Amazon reviews of the product. You are probably right.

RE: Will regular epoxy hold?

I think Liquid Nails LN201 will fit the bill. It is a polyurethane, so it is flexible. It fills gaps up to 1/4 an inch. It withstands temperatures up to 300 degrees. http://www.liquidnails.com/products/high-temperature-adhesive-LN201

RE: 19 volt TV

Sorry, I have no knowledge of the power usage of the device. It does work, though.

RE: Kentucky where would you stop and why?

Lots of people go to Nolin Lake. It is pretty close to Mammoth Cave and has water and electric. http://parks.ky.gov/parks/recreationparks/nolin-lake/

RE: Will regular epoxy hold?

What about 3M 4000 or 3M 5200? 5200 may be a little too permanent.

RE: Will regular epoxy hold?

Vinyl tile that is a pretty good thickness. With shoes on it isn't uncomfortably hot.

RE: Will regular epoxy hold?

JB Weld has a high temp 500 degree. Many listed on the web up to 2300 degrees. Will JB Weld work as an adhesive between steel and the tile? If so, this would work well.

Will regular epoxy hold?

The prior owner removed most of the carpet in my 27' Sightseer. He replaced it with thick tile that was secured with some sort of adhesive. The adhesive under the accelerator pedal must be over the exhaust manifold, because the adhesive melts after all day driving, and my foot pressure is causing the tiles to move. I've removed the affected tiles and cleaned them with lacquer thinner. I'll get to cleaning the floor later on today. My question is whether regular epoxy work for securing the tiles. I can't imagine the floor will get to 350 degrees, the upper temperature for epoxy, but I can't know for sure. What do you think?

RE: Wind push P-32; Sumo Springs or Super Springs?

UPDATE: My old tire gauge was off 5 pounds, so I thought I had 65 psi when I actually had 70. MH has always pulled to the right, even with a fresh alignment. I lowered the air pressure a few pounds on the left side. Now I can drive 65-70 with ease. I may lower the rear to 60 and see what that does, but the coach went from almost undrivable in the beginning to driving pretty well. 62 psi on the right and 57 on the left may be the ticket. It rides like there is too much air in the tires. That is supported by the scale result. Even at 60 psi I have a huge margin of error.

RE: 19 volt TV

Got on Amazon and ordered a cigarette lighter plug 19 volt adapter. It had the wrong end on it, but contacted the seller and they sent me a selection of new ends. They simply pulled out of the end. I switched out the end. Works perfectly.
