RE: East Coast Suggestions?

MAINE!!!! Get to Acadia - you cannot go wrong. There are several cg's that are on the water - or at least a water view - Bar Harbor CG, BAr Harbor KOA (very $$$), Narrows Too - to name a few. So much to do, and just a few lobsters to be consumed :)

RE: Alternative Resources changing name

Understand they are expanding - good for them. Change of address not good. A bit of a hassle, for sure. can't say I'm happy about that. Thanks for the FMCA tip, didn't know that - and I am a member. I will be contacting AR/DP to get my discount.

RE: Coastal Southern Maine or New Hamphire Campgrounds

We enjoyed our stay near Belfast, ME at The Moorings. It might be further north, but it is right on the water (no sewer - but dump station and a free pump out if you stay 1 week). Small cg, most sites have view - something to consider. We have used Wild Ducks and The Bluffs - all good options. If you wait for fall colors - consider visiting Acadia NP - well worth a visit anytime

RE: looking for a motorhome for primary residence

Will you have hookups during the winter season? If not, that opens up a whole 'nother can of worms. Battery drain!!! You will need a good generator to recharge the batteries or solar power. If you have electric that makes winter living a little easier. You will need access to propane - either move the coach to a fill station or add an "extend a stay" and use 100 lb aux tanks that the lp service truck comes to you. You will need to find a way to keep the tanks and plumbing from freezing. Some rv's have heated wet bays (not sure about the models your looking at). Otherwise some folks use a work style trouble light in the wet bay, and keep the interior cabinet doors open so the furnace heat warms the plumbing pipes. There is a lot to consider living in a rv in cold weather. It can be done, but lots of planning and preparation

RE: Laundry and the full timer

I am a solo fulltimer - 6+ yrs. I have the Splendide w/d - and love it. It has worked flawlessly (knock on wood). I do generally camp with full hookups - dry camping with an onboard w/d may not be worth it. If you think you'll be boondocking extensively, that should factor into your decision about a w/d.

RE: Insurance Rate Doubled after Accident--Help!!

OP. I am curious about the "5 points" - is your insurance co referring to DMV points or their in-house point system? 5 pts seems high for such a minor accident. Maybe there has been a clerical error

Brake Buddy making buzzing sound

I have a 7 yr old Brake Buddy Classic. I am a fulltimer, that let's the "wheels roll", I'm not a long term sitter around, so this bb has been well used. I had the compressor replaced 2 yrs ago. The bb is working, but now makes a slight buzzing sound, never heard it before. Any ideas? thanks

RE: toad is dead

I tow a 2012 Honda Fit - auto - blue ox setup. love it. As another poster mentioned, the 2015 auto is NOT towable. Look for a used Fit, great toad option.

RE: Outer Banks, NC

X 2 with Ocean Waves in Waves, NC. Just cross dunes to ocean, full hookups and 50 amp service. Very, very nice owners, hope to get back there soon. About $44 per night. 3x. But I am going back in mid August!!!!

RE: Broken plastic Atwood hot water heater drain plug

OP, I've "been there, done that". I am not a DIY'er but with a suggestion from this forum, I got the plastic plug out. Go to HD or Lowe's. Go to the lawn sprinkler area and get a device called "nipple extractor" (yes, no lie that's the name on the package). Cost is under $10 - looks like a "T" , 2 size ends - it took some muscle (maybe because I'm a girl) but the snapped off plug came out. I don't leave home without that crazy little tool!!!

RE: Cell phone reception database?

I often check with the Verizon coverage map - you can put in the cg address. I don't know if other providers have a similar feature. I also ask the cg staff at the time of making a reservation. I find in some national/state parks there is sporadic coverage, but often not everywhere.

OBX campgrounds after Arthur?

Does anyone know how the campgrounds in the southern OBX fared? Camp Hatteras, KOA, and Ocean Waves? We are headed there in a few weeks, (Ocean Waves) just curious, and don't want to bother the busy cg owners with a phone call at his time. Figured someone here will know. Thanks.

RE: Service appointments

Call a mobile tech. You can also go to the HWH website and find an authorized repair center near you. I would not go to CW, but that's just me.

RE: Cummings ISB 5.9L Turbo Diesel 300hp

I am a fulltimer, my '02 Newmar Kountry Star has the ISB 5.9 300hp. I am not engine tech knowledgeable, so I can't give you any specs, etc. I can tell you I have traveled up and down many, many mountain passes - not at jack rabbit speed, but that's A OK with me. I have 98k miles on that engine, and plan on putting on lots more. I did have a fuel pump failure, if I remember right (it's been several yrs ago), the particular pump was known for problems - a Bosch 44 - . That has been my only engine issue. The rear radiator needs to be cleaned on a regular basis, otherwise you might start running hot climbing. I have gotten 10mpg, but generally more like 9 - 9.5. I tow a Honda Fit, about 2500 lbs.

RE: Banff and Jasper Natl Park campgrounds? Please advise

We had hookups at both Banff and Jasper (Trailer Tunnel and Whistler). Go to the website - check on availability. The cgs were full the entire time of our stay - we had reservations. Go early to the parking lot of Moraine Lake (it is fairly small and very popular - so early is best) There is an uphill hike, but very doable, to one of the most spectacular sights you'll ever see. Enjoy, it is so beautiful

RE: Trek vs. Police cars

My Mom always told me to wear clean underwear in case of an accident - as to not be embarrassed in ER, I guess. Think this guy's Mom told him the same thing? Jeesh, the craziness is spreading.
