RE: Interstate side overnight park north of Savannah

Thanks! I'm printing everything out because I don't know where I'll be when it's time to stop for the day.

RE: Interstate side overnight park north of Savannah

Somewhere around Rincon looks good. I stayed here for a night. But unlike your 6pm, I got there at like 11pm. :) http://www.whisperingpinesrvpk.com/ They have transient pull-through sites up front. Very level and full hookups. They were good to leave the truck/camper connected. Looks good, but they don't take dogs over 30 pounds. We have a 55 pound Springer. Camp Lake looks like it will fit the bill. Can't find any dog rules, though. Thanks for the suggestions everybody. I want to be close enough to Savannah to receive over the air TV so I can watch Kentucky play, provided they get past WV Thursday.

RE: Interstate side overnight park north of Savannah

I expect to make it to Savannah or thereabouts for the night. I don't want to go through city traffic during the 5-6 pm rush hour, so basically as close to Savannah as I can get without going through it. I try to be off the road at 6:00 pm. Somewhere around Rincon looks good.

RE: Sideswiped fence and bent awning arm back

Thanks! The rear arm is bent, but I might just need to replace the lower base to hold everything up. The lock is definitely intact; it is in the front. Ultimately, I want to convert it to a crank out unit. It is going to be cheaper than I thought.

RE: Sideswiped fence and bent awning arm back

Looks like I could remove the awning by removing the screw that holds the "cap" to the arms. Is that how it's done? The hanger (the piece that is lag bolted into the roof) remains in place and both arms can then be removed. This may be the easiest and cheapest solution. provided I can get the screw out. The locking mechanism is on the undamaged front arm

RE: Sideswiped fence and bent awning arm back

Thanks for the zip tie suggestion. Mine is still rolled up tightly, and probably locked, at least to some extent. I'll zip tie it in 3 places, and either remove the arm or tape it to the side of the trailer, and plan to convert it to a crank out. I hated dealing with the awning. I could never get it to work right. A crank out will be much easier.

RE: Sideswiped fence and bent awning arm back

I would like to stabilize it for the trip. Might be a good time for a crank out or 12 volt conversion when i get back.

Sideswiped fence and bent awning arm back

I sideswiped a fence post and bent my awning arm back a foot or so. I also tore off the lower bracket. I never use the awning, but I will probably repair it anyway, but I'm going on vacation next week. If the arm is bent back will I need to replace it? I know the base lower bracket will have to be replaced. Can I simply remove the arm until I can repair it? My primary concern is I want to make sure the awning won't unfurl as I'm going down the road. I can't be the only person this has happened to. How did you fix it?

RE: air conditioner / honda 2000

The Yamaha does not have a closable vent cap. I can buy a second cap and seal it up with JB weld though. The Honda smells are not objectionable. I always drain the carb bowl after each use on all of these generators.

RE: air conditioner / honda 2000

I have also got an EU1000 that I can use to handle the surge if necessary, but I would rather have one genset that I can handle by myself. I could shut it off after the compressor started. I also recently inherited one of the EF2800i Yamaha inverter gensets that can easily handle the load, but it takes 2 people to move and is considerable louder. It also emits fumes from the cap that make it harder to store in an SUV and TT that has gas appliances.

RE: air conditioner / honda 2000

The key is shutting off all the other loads at the panel, turn on the fan only for a few minutes, then switch it over to AC. I know it is pretty marginal, but it has always worked for me. The battery charger is a big current hog. There isn't enough current to start both the compressor motor and the fan motor at the same time. I would really like to convert it to propane, but I'm afraid the small difference in power between gasoline and propane would be just enough to cause it not to work. Has anyone tried to start the AC with an EU2000 converted to propane?

Will fully charged Group 29 battery run furnace all night ?

I've always used 2 6 volt batteries on my Jayco. This time I'm thinking about just getting one Group 29 Deep Cycle battery. Will this battery run the furnace all night? I've got a genset for heavier uses.

Firestone Destination LE 2 for TT

I've got a couple of ST tires that are nearing 5 years. I would like to go to LT tires. I have 2 choices that fit the stock wheels and carry enough weight. First is the Firestone Destination LE 2 in 235/75/15, with a maximum rating of 2,183 pounds per tire at 50psi. This tire is relatively inexpensive at $101. http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires.jsp?tireMake=Firestone&tireModel=Destination+LE+2&partnum=375TR5DLE2OWLXL Second choice is the Goodyear Cargo G26 in 225/70/15, with a maximum rating of 2,470 pounds at 65psi. This tire is much more expensive at $156. I'm leaning towards the Firestones. My trailer GVW is 9,000, and I know the tongue weight will be over 1,000 pounds, so I have enough capacity. http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires.jsp?tireMake=Goodyear&tireModel=Cargo+G26&partnum=27R5G26&vehicleSearch=false&fromCompare1=yes Is there any reason to spend the extra on the Goodyears?

RE: Battery Terminal Corrosion

I had a battery on my Excursion that was prone to corrosion. I didn't know it until I replaced the battery, but the ground connectors had corroded to almost nothing. I believe that caused a bad ground condition that caused misfires of the COP. I replaced the connectors.

RE: pull-out trays for pass-thru storage?

We used plastic bins in our 99 Hurricane. Trying to support 4' slides will get expensive. Use individual bins, and a hooked pole to pull them out from either side. I used dirty clothes hampers that were the approximate width of the pass through. Not as good as a pull-out, but a lot easier to fabricate.

RE: New tow vehicle for my tent trailer - we aren't truck people

I wonder if you can get tuner for the Honda, My 5-star tuner on my Excursion made a big difference. Get a 93 octane performance tune. Another idea is to switch it out of overdrive while towing. It will have a lot more power. Fuel economy will suffer, but it is nothing compared to the price of a new truck. Hondas are top shelf. I would spend a little on it to make it work.

RE: Place to dry camp one night around Grayton Beach State Park

I'll do it. I even got a pull through site. Won't have to disconnect.

Place to dry camp one night around Grayton Beach State Park

Our reservation doesn't start until Sunday, but we will be arriving Saturday, July 4th. Is there someplace (Walmart or the like) where we could park the night until they will let us in on Sunday. I figure Sunday morning I can just go to the day area so the kids can use the beach. A good fireworks view would be a plus!
