RE: Directions - Camp Hatteras RV Campground in NC

Another option is 287 to NJTP to exit 7 - to 295 S - Del Mem Bridge. 95 S to Rt 1 to 13 - tolls all along the way - but not too bad a drive

RE: KOA Philadelphia/West Chester - PA, Opinions?

2x Timberlane, right off I 295 exit 18 in Clarksboro NJ. It is generally full, so reservations are a must. It is not a "resort", some sites are close - others a bit more spacious, wooded but some open enough for sat - full hookups in good working order

RE: plaese help Im at alost wont start again

Yup, that price is about right. I broke down last spring, keypad went blank, engine shut down - in the middle of an intersection!!! Towed to local truck repair center, same result as you - $2200 + $250 program - plus labor - all in all close to $4k. I am a fulltimer, lots of miles since the breakdown, all trouble free.

RE: WEATHER ALERT RADIO

Google store has the Android App "Weather Pro", you have a full list of alert notifications, plus a map indicating the alerts. The App follows you eliminating the need to keep updating locations. Fred 2x. I am a fulltimer, I have used this app for the past 3 yrs. It is the best app I ever pd for!!! You can choose the weather events for alerts, and at what level for that alert. Great piece of mind for any rv'eR with a smartphone.

RE: First Timer To Yellowstone

OP, 30 days is better than nothing for sure. Yellowstone is huge, glad you're taking your toad. There is excellent camping in West Yellowstone, particularly if you want full hookups. Make time for the Grand Tetons, ColterBay RV is in the park, big rig friendly and fhups. If you stick to interstates, the grades aren't bad, and since your time is limited, probably the quickest. You might want to purchase the Mountain Directory West for more detailed route information. Have a great trip from a Jersey flatlander - who's been west many times and survived the big hills!!!

RE: loud "thunk" retracting the slide

Op here. In my total lack of know how, I think that rod is somehow the source of my "thunk". I base that on the location of the thunk, I could not only hear it but felt it through the floor. I will have the Newmar service center in Florida check it thoroughly. They have worked on my coach from the very beginning. I am hoping the slide operates ok until then. When you take it in to have them look at it, let us know what they have to say about it. I'm curious. OP here. Posted findings in my original post, finally got to Newmar today

RV parks that don't post rates

I use the campground's web site to gather information when researching all travel. I compare all the campgrounds in the general vicinity of our planned trip; location, amenities, and rates, etc. I have found several corporate type campgrounds/resorts don't list their rates. You have to fill in a reservation request to see the rates. What a pain, so much so, we just cross that cg off the list. The suits and ties that design the web page are doing the potential customer a big disservice by not posting rates in an upfront, easily viewed manner. There's plenty of cgs that do, and they are the ones that will get my business. Have you come across this? And does it effect your decision on choosing a campground? Just curious

RE: Balking Brake Buddy

I agree with the posters that suggest installing the bb 12v power kit. Another thing to check is the car battery. My bb was acting up, it turned out the car battery (which started the car ok) was weak, once a new battery was installed no problem with the bb. Now fast forward 7 yrs - my bb classic needed repairs, so I sent it in - I talked to a bb tec - and decided to replace the unit with the newer bb vantage. They offer a great deal, about 1/2 price compared to retail - I am a fulltimer, my bb get a lot of use and a new unit (with a 3 yr warranty) is peace of mind.

RE: stress fracture

I'd get my ooach out of camping world in a heartbeat and make the 2 day drive to the dealer!!!!!! Tehn I would camp out there until I have a resolution and repair done. You have a lot of your hard earned money invested in this unit, do whatever YOU have to do to get this issue addressed. Just my opinion, but CW is not answer.

RE: loud "thunk" retracting the slide

Op. I will post diagnosis but it won't be until the end of snowbird season.

RE: loud "thunk" retracting the slide

Doug. Op here. I don't know if he did. I was inside ext/retract slide but he did not specifically mention doing that. I know he had that bay door open but I didn't see a wrench. To clairfy, Are you referring to motor mounted centrally under slide? If so I can retract slide and check it. Too dark and rain/snow on the way, so not today

RE: loud "thunk" retracting the slide

Op here. For now, false alarm. The mobile tech was here. Extended and retracted the slide. No thunk. He was under and watched the rail. I am relieved, but I know that sound was distinctively different from the usual. I will have the newMar service center give it a good look when I'm there for my annual service. Thanks for everyone's input.

RE: loud "thunk" retracting the slide

Op here. Thanks everyone. I have a mobile tech coming tomorrow. The motor is very easy to access, I'll check those bolts in the morning. The tec is not Newmar specific, so I hope he can resolve this. I'm not sure if this is relevant, but the thunking sound happened the last foot of retracting and the first foot of extending. Rest of movement was normal.

RE: loud "thunk" retracting the slide

OP here. I will check in the morning. Thank you, I think you guys gave me good advice. If it's the pin at the far end is it accessible? Also I am mechanically inept, is this something a mobile tech can fix?

loud "thunk" retracting the slide

I have a 02 Newmar. The main slide out made a new and worrisome sound. The clunk, thunk noise seemed to be in the area of the front rail. The slide extended and retracted normally, but I am concerned that there is a problem. The slide is currently extended. I did look at that front rail, nothing looked unusual, but I know nothing about mechanical things. There is a threaded rod, what I can see again looks ok. I cannot see the far end of either rod or rail. Any ideas? UPDATE!!!!! The slide has operated normally since that 1 time loud thunk clunk by the front rail. I had the coach serviced at a Newmar facility today. I mentioned the slide issue. Turned out the roller was bad, just that 1, all others good. Replaced with new $17 roller. Thanks

RE: dumb jack question

OP here. Yes, we will be bringing in the slides prior to retracting jacks. Just don't want to start up engine for the sole reason of bringing up the jacks. Did check our HWH manual and couldn't find an answer. We've been rving for ages, but not very mechanical smart - and any variation of what we do know - is a head scratcher.

dumb jack question

Good morning I have hwh jacks on a Freightliner Newmar. Generally retracting the jacks is part of our departure routine. The engine is running, airEd up, etc. But can you retract the jacks without all that? Just hit store? I'm thinking yes, but would like to have the input from you. Thanks.

RE: Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta

We went several years ago, and dry camped. We went in with full fresh and empty black/gray tanks, we stayed for 4 nights. We faced the landing field, even helped a balloon by grabbing ropes to secure it. Great time. If you are set up to dry camp, don't worry about what type of site you can get - whatever is available and whatever your budget can handle. We did arrive the day before the fiesta started, and VERY glad we did - the check in lines on opening day were massive!!! We used the free shuttle bus to get to the launch field. If you can squeeze in a day or two beyond the weekend, try to do that. There are day(s) that the weather prevents launches.
