RE: Extreme Leveling

We run into this when we stay at Newport Dunes, RV Resort in Newport Beach, CA. I have 2x10's that are bolted together 3 high and ramped that I drive up on. Then I have a couple of blocks that I place under the leveling jacks. I really do not like having the front wheels off the ground. But most at Newport Dunes do have their front wheels off the ground.

Back in the nineties we were staying at the Campland on the Bay in San Diego when they pulled one of these stunts. They decided it was a good idea to host a USC Toga Party. By the time I got fed up and went to the office there was a large group of campers way ahead of me. The next day employees told several of us campers that the Activities had already been fired! The campground needed to advise their campers of this and obeyed their own noise rules. Give KOA Headquarters in Billings, MT a call.

RE: BAd driver

Drunken driver not driving his own car. This is going to get ugly as the other Ins. company is going to claim "not our responsibility". Considering minor personal injuries, I would recommend that you buy a couple of hours with a personal injury attorney. You do not need to sue anyone, yet, but you may want to listen to the advise of an attorney.

RE: samstown las vegas

Here is a press release from KOA. Apparently Circus Circus is going to redevelop the land where the Campground was. One of the largest and most well-known RV parks in the Las Vegas Valley, the Sam's Town RV Park will be renamed the Las Vegas KOA at Sam's Town and become KOA's exclusive home in Las Vegas starting Oct. 1. The agreement returns KOA to Boulder Highway, where the company opened the first Las Vegas KOA in 1971. KOA most recently operated the campground adjacent to the Circus Circus Hotel and Casino, which is being developed for an alternate use.

RE: Driving to Disneyland experiences?

Stay in the RV and I recommend the campgrounds nearby. Orangeland RV is about 5 miles via car and we also stay at the Anaheim Resort RV Park which is closer and has a shuttle that costs a few bucks per person. We live 45 minutes from Disneyland and we sometimes drive for the day other times spend the night.

RE: Fuel Stops

We plan ahead and use GasBuddy.com. Usually we try for Costco/WalMart or one of the truck stops. Alot of the major grocery stores also have easy access in our area.

RE: Tow bar lubrication

I use anti-seize lubricant annually on the tow bar shafts. The manual recommends to clean excess oil from the shafts.

RE: Firearms in RV

I have a question...perhaps some of the LEO have a suggestion. I have never carried a firearm in our RV and I have never been in a situation where I might need one. That being said, for a little protection I am considering a stun gun on board the rig. What are your thoughts?

RE: Santa Nella Ca. KOA or Santa Nella RV Park

We have stayed at both but prefer Santa Nella RV park. More convenient to I-5 and....In-N-Out Burger.

RE: 50 amp service

Just remember 50 amps is really 50 amps x 2 legs= 100 amps. Each A/C unit will pull about 16 amps. A microwave I think can be as high as 12 amps. Coffee makers which produces heat can also be high...but not 100 amps. total. Check the campground connections and you will need to work from there.

RE: 50 amp service

Ideally voltage should be 120 volts + or - 5%. That figures out to 114 volts to 126 volts. Anything outside of these parameters can be hazardous to your electrical items especially electronics.

Just north of Medford is a town with several nice RV parks. The town is Gold Hill, OR and you can find the ratings on www.rvparkreviews.com Good luck!

RE: Sacramento, Ca

I have stayed at several of the campgrounds and I would recommend the Cal Expo RV park. On edit, I agree with other posters, if you can go a little further then definitly Flag City in Lodi, CA.

For more information on BWI Marshall's parking services contact Maryland Parking at 410-859-9230 or toll-free 800-I FLY BWI (435-9294) I personally think it is a great idea and would not hurt the image of RV'ers.

RE: parking with front wheels off the ground

I have done it, but I do not like it. I now carry blocks of wood to drive up on and then I level. You never want the rear wheels up as this is where your parking brake is. I have heard that raising the front wheels up well not hurt the frame, but I just do not trust the philosophy. Better safe than sorry.

RE: All camps receive guests at night?

We owned a Kampground for 7 years. The complaints were in this order: 1. Unleashed/barking dogs 2. Noisy late arrivals 3. Alcohol After our second season we stopped check-ins at 11 pm. Most of the late check ins were respectful, but the few major problems ruined it for everyone else.
