Vermont cg suggestions, please

We would like to spend a week in Vermont, park in one centrally located cg, and take day trips in toad from there. We have a 40' mh, prefer full hookups, 2 adults - so don't need kid friendly stuff at cg. Suggestions? Thinking mid to late July - very flexible - but summer or early fall. We use rv parks review, but would like input from the forum. Thanks so much Kathy

RE: Painting over 3M Film

I watched a detail crew remove a 3M mask off my neighbor's rig. They worked hard - but got it all off, it looks great. Not sure if the owner plans on having coach painted, or just wanted the messy looking 3M off.

RE: Need new captain chairs

Op back. Thanks for the suggestions. You have inspired me to look again into reupholstered. I'm assuming any upholstery business can do this? We are in a different part of the USA, worth checking. We have calls to rv parts nation, waiting for a price quote.

Need new captain chairs

We are in desperate need for new captain chairs, the old ones are flaking and peeling - they look terrible. I have already decided it is too expensive to have them reupholstered - so looking for new. We have flexsteel, on a power pedestal, and are ok with identical replacement of the chairs (pedestal is fine). So, can we order these chairs? Or do we need to go through a dealer of some sort? We would prefer not to use camping world. We can install the chairs ourselves - so just need to find a flexsteel distributor to ship the chairs to us. Help???? thanks, Kathy

RE: Newmar owners - broken baggage lock help!!

OP back - still no luck - but will keep trying - not today tho - cold, windy and rainy!!! I will call Newmar today and order the link part, so WHEN I finally get it open, it'll be an easy fix. TECHWRITER, I love your idea (great pics) - I am going to copycat you - for all my stand alone compartment doors (4) I don't want to go through this again - especially since one of my stand alone bays is the electrical!!! That would be a disaster if/when that latch would break. My coach is 12 yrs old - I'm a fulltimer so those bay doors get opened and closed a lot!!!

RE: Newmar owners - broken baggage lock help!!

Op back. I will call Newmar tomorrow. Of course it breaks 3 days AFTER I left Newmar service center. Ugh. I did have another latch break but was able to get to it from another bay. Newmar sent me the part, link. It was an easy fix. But the bugaboo here is getting the bay open. Grrr

Newmar owners - broken baggage lock help!!

I have a '02 Newmar. The baggage doors open from bottom and swing up. One of them won't open. It does "unlock" with the key, but nothing happens when I lift the latch. The plunger is not moving. It is a stand alone compartment, no access from other bay doors. OK, is there a trick someone can share with me on how to jimmy the door open? thanks, Kathy

RE: Help! Yosemite after 40 years

I stayed in the Escapee Park of the Sierras - 38' mh. Awesome place!!! Took the toad, and BIKE into Yosemite. Find a spot early in the day to park the toad in one of the valley parking lots and spend the rest of the day on either the shuttle or ride the paved bike paths. Riding is easy, flatlander like me loved it. Have a great trip.

RE: mount rushmore where to camp

If you can live with E only, stay in Custer State Park!! Game Lodge CG has 50amp, nice bath house, laundry, and dump station. Great location for all Black Hills attractions. I have stayed at Rafter J and Broken Arrow - both good, but prefer the state park setting. The SD state park website has pics of all cg sites, very helpful in selecting a site.

RE: Is this normal? warm lightswitch

Op here. It is the switch for the light over the kitchen table. There are 5 small bulbs in the fixture. I will not use that light until I have a chance to have it checked. Thanks all

Is this normal? warm lightswitch

I have an '02 Newmar - and will be taking it in for annual service in April - I am a fulltimer living in the coach 24/7. I have noticed, and I'm not sure if this is new -or I just picked up on it recently - but the light switch gets warm when light has been on for a while. Is this normal? It is noticeably warm, but not burn your fingers hot. If not, what could cause this? I will mention this to the service center, but I'd like to know in advance from you folks what might be going on here. I am hooked up to shore power, although I know the lights are 12v. thanks, kathy

Need your suggestions - w/in a day's drive of NJ

Hi, We are fulltimers, and due to family issues we need to spend the summer in southern NJ. So any thoughts of "things to do" greatly appreciated. BUT, we want to get away from NJ for short (1 week) occasional trips. We have a 40' mh/toad. Where can we take it that is within a day's drive of NJ? Any cg suggestions? thanks

RE: Black Hills off the beaten path

We really enjoyed the candlelight ranger led tour at Wind Cave. You need a reservation for that. Missle tour is another interesting sidelight. Take your bikes and ride the Mickleson trail - small fee - hike up Harney's Peak. Consider camping in Custer State Park. We used Game Lodge - e only - but good bath house, laundry, and dump station. Have a great trip

RE: Winter in Missoula Area

I'm not sure, but maybe Jim and Mary's is open year round. It is not in Missoula, but fairly close. Have you done any cold weather camping in the past? The biggest challenge, IMHO, is heat - for the coach and you. You will need lots and lots of lp, or diesel if you rely on aqua-hot. Brrr, sounds awful, but then again, I am in FL :)

RE: RV driving lessons ASAP Please!

Check out the rv show in Tampa, might find someone there or a driving school - lots of vendors. I learned from my truck driver bil, then practiced in a large empty parking lot - used cones, etc to mark turns, backing into sites. You can do this and congratulations on your coach. I would ask, quite firmly, that the dealership provide some basic driving skills along with the usual pdi.

RE: headed to Iowa

I'd vent too. Golly, you didn't spend that kind of money for the coach to sit at cw. Tough lesson to learn about the rv business. Check with your manufacturer and see if there is another authorized dealer/service center in your area. Might be closer than Iowa :)

RE: In need of furnace help!!!! Anyone?????

Op back again. I had a chance to replay in my mind the situation. I arrived in nj with a full onboard lp tank. I immediately switched over to aux tank. Yes did the soapy water no bubbles. Everything worked fine, furnace and stove. Then last night after disconnecting hose and aux tank trouble began. Back to the disconnect, all was normal, turned onboard valve to open did more soapy water stuff. I set the thermostat for 60 and went out for the night. Returned to find a cold rv. Tried some of your suggestions but no heat from the furnace and no stove burners. I survived by placing e heater in wet bay and another inside blowing into plumbing. 44 degrees. Brrr. OK this am in the light I notice the level of onboard lp had droppwd. How can this be? The know was "closed" and yes I am 100% sure. Anyway once I reach my fl destination I will have the mobile technology (have uses him before and he's good) check the entire lp system. I'll let you all know and thanks again.

RE: In need of furnace help!!!! Anyone?????

Op here. I decided to head south, was going either th or FR so pushed it up a day. Yes I also think the problem should be chased back to switching from aux tank to onboard. Along those lines, is it possible the onboard on/off know is the culprit? Do they go bad? Coach is an '02 making stuff 11+ yes old. From the road heading to fl Kathy
