RE: WVa flooding got my TH

Extensive flooding in WVa has us to where we can't get within 10 miles of our TH. We were in Beckley visiting my brother and we got word River was rising 2 to 3 feet an hour. We were 45 mins away from our camper and torrential downpours shut roads down to where we couldn't get to the TH to move it.. Long story short, don't even know if it's on our pad, or washed away... I KNOW it's under water to some extent... I called insurance comany and hope River drops low enough to be able to assess the damage and take pictures for insurance purposes. Rough night for the wife and I . We don't exactly know what to do... Oh, sons camper was also on our lot... Don't know it's condition either. One never knows what is going to happen. Guess we're now without a camper...between me recouping from the stroke and wife from hip replacement.. This is just about a knock out blow... Don't know what we're going to do at this time.....Jim I just was watching the video footage of this area from a drone and omg it looked horrific. Soo sorry your are in the middle of all that.:( Be thankful you and all the family are ok. Hope the roads open up soon so you can get to your RV's. You will all be in our prayers tonight. :C

RE: Why do we keep paying more??

It's none of the above that it is due to the economy and inflation and they need to raise the rates. Because all new members will get the lowest rate possible. I saw red when I became aware of this. They jack up the renewal price all the time on existing members. YET, a new member joins and they get the lowest rate possible. Be with them for 10 years and they raise the rate come renewal time. Yup that's the thanks for being a loyal customer. I have never seen any other company do business this way. They raise your rates? Cancel and then come back and put it in your DW's name as a new member and get the lower rate and then have lots of kids and each year put it in a different kids name. :W:B

RE: What do you do about dirty clothes?

We are on our first trip that is longer that 5 days. We will be gone for 10-12 days and haven't had this issue before. What do you do with your dirty clothes? Seems like a weird question I guess but... 1. Where do you put your dirty clothes? It seems like there is no logical place to hang our dirty clothes bag (we have the C with the bed in the back corner) and there isn't anywhere to build a hamper??? 2. Do you wash your clothes? Where and how often? We are not staying at any campgrounds with these facilities and won't go to a laundry mat. I'm still curious WHY you won't go to a laundromat?:?

RE: Question to the full Timers Out There Or Soon To Be

My question is how long have you done full timing and what made you go full timing.... me and my wife had made a discussion we do not want to be full timers because we have been RVing since we were young and owned many RV's and feel like we have done the life style enough that we could never live full time in a RV,..... ...Who here has had their share of RV trips while younger and feel like full timing is a done that been there thing. I'm a little confused.:? You state you would NEVER live in an RV full time and then ask why people would NOT full time.......on a Full-timer forum. We ARE full timers! So needless to say WE don't think it's a been there done that thing cause we're doing it! :W

RE: Side Aisle and All-in-one Bath Floorplans

I'll just add that a friend of mine bought a new MH just to have the aisle instead of the thru the split bathroom. Ended up real unhappy with it. The wall to accomplish the aisle to the side cuts off the MH in half and it looks and feels real small then and the front of the MH is then real dark too. Just saying. And how long can a guest stay in a bathroom that would make you feel trapped? :W

RE: Leaving camper unoccupied - help

Do you have a jumpit for jump starting cars? If not you should have one on board when RV'ing! :W I used one of those with a small cheap plug in inverter and then plugged in a residential small table lamp. Makes it look like someone is home 'inside' the RV and the battery jumpit will provide the power to that lamp for couple days. I also used CFL bulb in lamp less watts. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v664/RVn05/th_jumpit.jpg?t=1298075848 + http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v664/RVn05/th_inverter.jpg?t=1298075850 + https://encrypted-tbn2.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcR8juUFoydO5D470xSjtCWsaqtOgTw-2tISoP9gPRy6fW9hZ7Ihqw This combo is also priceless to have in case of an emergency. I can watch a small TV all night with it too!

RE: Near Milwaukee Wisconsin ?

It won't because there are NOT that many in that area. Been there done that. Searched till I was blue in the face. Yogi is the only big CG in Milwaukee. There is a real nice family oriented CG off of highway 50 about 35 minutes out of Milwaukee. They carry Burlington addresses only as a rural mailing address. Meadowlark Acres, Inc. Phone - (262) 763-7200 N5146 North Road Burlington, WI 53105 http://www.meadowlarkacres.org/index2.html Also check out the Lake Geneva area off of 50 also. 30 minutes out of Milwaukee. There are CG's at the state park too right on Lake Geneva.think its called big foot. And then there is this 'little' CG 'nothing special' it does have a pool. BUT the bonus of it is it is across the street from the beach of Lake Geneva with all kinds of activities AND for the DW 5 minutes away from a huge long historical street of specialty and antique shops!! Coachman's Terrace W3540 State Road 50, Lake Geneva, WI 53147-3497 (262) 248-3636 ? http://www.coachmansterrace.com/ http://www.happyacres.com/ Bong State Park http://wisconsinstateparks.reserveamerica.com/camping/richard-bong-state-recreation-area/r/campgroundDetails.do?contractCode=WI&parkId=60008 Good Luck. :C

RE: 1978 Chevy 30 motorhome

You can weld whatever to a chassis to whatever weight capability. But it won't help the coach pull it! :W I 'know' that my toad is back there when pulling the grades or even small hills. You can drive on the straight away pulling just about anything with any size engine but you'll never make it up a steep hill without it floating out with an underrated motor for what you are towing.

RE: 1978 Chevy 30 motorhome

If you live where you have to do smog tests I'd stay far far away from older MH's with carberated motor's especially the Dodge ones!

RE: 1978 Chevy 30 motorhome

Hey everyone, I'm looking at an 18 foot Chevy motorhome with a 350 big block, I can't find any specs on the motor or chassis but does anyone know if it would be possible to dinghy tow my Jeep Wrangler? Short answer is no, as mentioned in all the above posts. What 'year' MH are you looking at? What's your price range? There are a ton of older MH's in the 90 years for sale with the Ford V10, which is what you ARE going to need to pull the jeep. Most C's 'with the bigger engine' are rated for 6,000 lbs but NO ONE pulls that much weight it just too much weight. Most of us like to stick to towing cars that weigh around 3,000 lbs.

RE: Tank monitor question

Ice cubes are not going to help you. AND contrary to the belief of some, sensors DO WORK if you clean up the tanks and sensors and keep them free of debris. When you are at a CG with full hookups, dump , and then start filling each one of your tanks up to the top with water and dump and repeat and repeat several times. You need to get all the stuff out that is stuck to the sides/sensors and most likely the bottom of your tanks. Most likely left by the previous owners not dumping correctly. I had to do this with my first used MH and it took numerous fills and dumps to clean them out. Doing it while you are at a CG is the easiest way to do it. Pick up a couple bottles of lemon cleaner at the dollar store and add to each tank each time you are adding the water to them to flush out the tanks. I add a bottle of lemon cleaner monthly to the gray and I use chemicals that break down waste and paper in the black. My sensors WORK all the time. :C

RE: Pop-Up Camper Pops its Top on Expressway

Pulling over from the left lane to help would not have served any purpose to begin with because he would have been too far away from the incidence. Don't shoot the messenger! To the poor guy with the PUP. THAT is really one sad video to watch seeing ALL his personal belongings go flying up in the air. :(

RE: Do not use awnings in heavy rain?????? Really???

.........If you followed everything in the manual, you wouldn't leave the driveway and I think the manufacturer prefers you don't, or they might have to warranty something. Yes, does anybody consider using a bit of common sense? If I strictly followed every manufacturer's safety precautions, warnings or advise, we would never go campin' again. Or anything else, for that matter. I guess we could just blindly follow what our leaders tell us to. I do follow some warning labels. For instance I don't wear my clothes while ironing them, I try to limit my dogs alcohol intake when on certain medications, and I haven't found the need to swallow a coat hangar or the warning label attached to it. In addition I try not to hold the wrong end of my chainsaw, dry my pets in the microwave, or use a curling iron on my eye lashes. X2 :B

RE: Hanging chairs from ladder blocking license plate

Hanging chairs from ladder blocking license plate yes I've been stopped twice in two different states for blocking the license plate. :( I added a bike rack that fits an RV square bumper. It works perfectly for lawn chairs. AND also can carry a spare! Just mount it on the 'opposite side' of where the license plate is. I put the lawn chairs on the back part where the tire would be and I carry my dogs expens on the front of it. Bike hooks make great clamps for them. I've also carried lawn chairs on both sides of the rack. IMHO a great little rack for haulin all kinds of stuff for the RV other than bikes! http://i.imgur.com/uXwCBrZl.jpghttp://i.imgur.com/oc4cW0Ol.jpg height=225 width=225 Is there any reason you can't hang the chairs higher up on the ladder? .

RE: Do not use awnings in heavy rain?????? Really???

Do not use awnings in 'heavy rain'?????? Really??? Short answer NO. I can lower my awning real low which gives it an almost straight down slant. When it is 'raining softly' I just lower the whole awning. One of THE reasons I like the manual awnings. I've seen where tipping just one side does not always work to protect an awning. I've seen more tipped awnings broke from a heavy rain. That all said when there is rain coming you have to weigh the chances of a strong wind or storm surge. Trust me you do NOT have time to get out there and roll up an awning once the wind starts to save your awning. In fact rolling it up during the wind "increases" your chances of it ripping off. Because once you release those side arms you have the perfect sail for that wind to hit and rip off and you will not be able to hold it down. Don't ask me how I know.

RE: Keeping the fridge cold on hot weekends

I found that parking the RV so that the afternoon searing hot sun doesn't hit the exterior fridge wall helps a lot. Even putting the awning out to shade it helps. X2 If you do have the MH parked with the fridge side to the west, I drop the awing to it's lowest position. Keeps the fridge panel cooler AND makes a big difference INSIDE the RV too.
