RE: Smokey Mountains & Blue Ridge Parkway

Twin Creeks is a good choice it's where we stay. Very convenient to almost everything, and the trolley to town and the cdraft loop not cheap but worth the price. You might want to get a reservation for the main tour at Biltmore especially if you go on a weekend.

RE: Towing with a 5.3?

My son has a 21' Bayliner of similar weight and we have towed it with 6 different GM pickups/suvs with the 5.3 with 4 sp and 6 sp trans and different gear ratios. Never had a problem.

RE: Hunting island state park , sc

We stayed there last year. Very large campground and the park includes a Lighthouse and a free fishing pier and miles of beach. We had a full service site in the woods. Very private and a shortwalk to the great beach but tight turns to get in. Beach area was more crouded area. Had to go to the store to get WIFI. Nice park stays full during the season so need to get a reservation.

There are several sites that list OR dump stations. One I use is http://www.sanidumps.com/rvdumpsregion.php?region=51, but there are a couple others if you search on it.

RE: how much weight do you tow with 1/2 ton gm 5.3l

On my thrid GM truck with the 5.3 engine. Threre is a huge difference between the older 4 sp trany and the never 6 sp equipped vehicles. The newer trucks, 2007? or later I think, tow much better even with the 3.42 gears than the older ones even with the lower gears.

RE: canyon de chelly

Since you are not pulling your TT you might consider going up to Chaco Canyon which IMHO is more impressive than the others and a lot less people.

RE: Red Squirrel or Chip Monk

What works for mice dosen't seem to work for Red Squirrels. They ate the injector wires off my truck, $1500 and chewed holes in our shed and I tried about everything. If I plugged the holes they just chewed another. I finally lined almost the whole inside with metal screeening. Things are very hard to shot with a pellet gun, live in town so a shotgun is out. I caught one in a live trap after much effort. The only thing that seems to keep them away is "Critter Ridder" I get at Tractor Supply. Have to reply often and can't be used on painted surfaces but does do the job.

RE: Knoxville Area - I-75

We also use Cove Lake State Park at exit 34 about 40 minutes north of Knox close to freeway and town of Lafolette and reasonable cost.

RE: Fishing in Yellowstone?

My biggest problem is trying to figure out where you can fish and what you could use at each place, lot of catch and release. One time went out on the big lake but never caught anything small!! enough we could keep.Last time we hired a boat in Grand Tetons and went Lake trout, fishing caught some nice fish the guide did all the work.

RE: air conditioner / honda 2000

I'v run a 13500 AC on my Honda 2000 on two different TTs and have never had it fail to run. Shut off all other draws and don't run more than an hour or so at a time.

RE: What do you put under your stabilizers and trailer tongue?

8"X8" square pieces cut from 3/4 inch rubber horse mats work great and don't slip or break. Use long strips for whell levelers.

RE: Cascades, Crater Lake, Redwood National Park

In the Gorge we use Ainsworth State Park near Troutdale, does have FHUs and very scenic. Some large pull thrus. Near Falls, but a no reservation campground so get in early. Also like Memaloose State park near the Dalles, has a great location on the river some FHUs and will take reservations.

RE: Water in light fixture of new trailer.

I would check the A/C seal, water travels can end up in way away from actual leak. There are probably 4 bolts and a rubber seal that may not be seated or was not tight enough when installed. Don't over tighten will ruin the seal.

RE: Cincinnati Ohio - When is it usually safe to dewinterize?

I ggenerally dewinterize in early Apr in Dayton, then if its gets into low 20s I use a radiator type space heater. If you don't have a covered underbelly this might not be a good idea but have had 5 RVs and never had a freeze problem.

RE: Electrical Golf Cart -- Tax credit ??????

There was a tax rebate in the early 2000s for one year ($7500 as I remember). Had to be street legal and electric and meet some other requirements. I tried to get one but it was impossible due to demand all were snapped up before the deadline. Don't know if there is any rebates now. Had two electrics and now have a gas one. There are advantages abnd dis avantage to both. If I get another I'll go back to electric.
