RE: Best polish for travel trailer

Tried them all and settle in only using these Meguire's products. I try to wax every month. I found CG's don't mind if you wax at your site. They usually do not allow washing. The wash soap/wax works great AND it leaves a 'real' nice shine also. http://www.meguiars.com/content/global/product/2818_sm.jpg___http://www.meguiars.com/content/global/product/2740_sm.jpg

RE: Florida State Parks Status

Check out the local news too. Depending what your destination is. The fish are dieing en mass and floating to the top and on shore and smelling, and the swamp gas is smelling, etc. Locals living near any body of water said it smells REAL BAD. They said this will subside but gave no time frame. And also advised not going into any body of water at this time. http://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/os-hurricane-irma-stinky-smell-20170919-story.html http://www.miamiherald.com/news/local/environment/article29854051.html

RE: old camper at a site i drove by

I didn't see any holding tanks on it come to think of it. I have no contact that I can find. It sits on a corner of orange ave, just south of Michigan ave. in Orlando FL If you want give this guy a call and send him pics and location. He is the be all end all restorer of old RV's and if you need a part to restore an RV he's the guy. He'd know if anyone was looking for parts from the trailer you saw. He is the one I called that came out and saved the TT destined for scrap. airstreamguy.com You can contact me at 785.366.6049 or email [email protected]

RE: Dog first aid kit?

Alcohol, peroxide, betadine scrub solution, tramadol, vet wrap lots of vet wrap!, splints precut to length of each dog legs to support a broken bone, blood stop (for horses powder) white adhesive sport wrap, big gauze pads. GasX, Digel anti-acid, Anti diarrhea, benydril liquid. And IMHO the most important is a 'muzzle' for 'each' dog on board that fits properly on each dog. When they get hurt badly they are not the same warm fuzzy pup you used to know. And you need to get in there and apply first aid asap and the muzzle will allow you to do that. My first aid kit is far more in-depth then what I listed but then again I feel you can't have too many first aid items in case of an emergency.:C

RE: Weekend at a "dry" campground

I daughter's family camped at a private campground that happened to be owned and operated by a church organization. It was NOT a "church" campground. No on site services or prayer meetings. Rules did say no guns or alcohol and bathing attire should be "modest", but that was it. They had a great time and looking forward to returning. X2 I was in a pinch looking for a CG near my storage unit when I sold my house to go full-time. I found one that said it was christian owned. Didn't have a clue what all that meant but signed up for a month. Gotta admit it was THE nicest CG I a have ever stayed at. VERY friendly campers, WELL BEHAVED kids, wonderful owners. And night time was the quietist I have ever experienced. Whenever I go back up North I make a point of staying there. :C

RE: old camper at a site i drove by

I was at a CG with an abandoned Airstream that someone just left. It was in decent shape. CG Owner called a scrap yard to come get it for the scrap metal. :E I asked him to give me a couple days before they started to cut it up. I looked on line for antique airstream clubs and found The Airstream Guy who restores and supplies parts for antique TT's. He drove in from out west and took it and SAVED it! Here are the pictures of the Airstream that was doomed for the scrap yard! http://i40.tinypic.com/npq91i.jpg http://i39.tinypic.com/2dmcftj.jpg http://i40.tinypic.com/2hmeteh.jpg http://i40.tinypic.com/6ekmfo.jpg To OP: Think of ALL the hard to find parts on that RV you saw that people restoring one could use! Give a simple shout out/email to were it is located to one of the clubs for that type of TT. :W This is a good starting point. /tincantourists.com http://oldtrailer.com/vintage-vagabond-trailers.html

RE: Sold our motorhome. Keep the Dinghy? Az too hot?

If you keep it and put a for sale sign on it during the snowbird season it will be gone in a flash. Rv'ers are always looking for a toad and one that is all set up is as good as gold irregardless of the age of the car. Don't sell it cheap either you know how much that tow set up cost. I sold my 98 Chevy Tracker and got big bucks for it! I did sell my tow bar separately. So I got all the money back I had invested in my toad and towing equipment. Also you can list it here at the Escapee's full time club forum for selling RV stuff. I got a ton of calls on my toad and tow bar off that forum. All seasoned Rv'ers so there was no scam idiots calling you. And they are willing to pay whatever you listed it for no hagglers cause they know how much RV stuff costs. Here's my obligatory link and info. :B Long respected Escapee's Full-Time RV club forum. Many full timers/snowbirds coming off the road will place their RV's for sale here. I've found many Great deals on RV's and/or RV equipment. You do NOT have to join the actual Escapees Club to use their forum classified. Just join the forum for free. 1. Go her: http://www.rvnetwork.com/ 2. Upper right hand corner click: create an account 3. After you joined go to Forums. 4. Scroll all the way down the page near the bottom to: RV MARKET PLACE...and place you ad. Good Luck.

RE: Need new SMALL Propane Grill

.... Ultimately it depends on how into BBQ and Grilling you are .. No doubt the weberQ is popular but Sometimes the space a bbq takes up in an RV bay trumps all the bells and whistles. :W Need new SMALL Propane Grill What the OP wanted was a 'small' BBQ. And for some that have small bays there are other items that need to fit in those bays also! I had a WeberQ and I have pretty large bays but that Q is bulky to store and just doesn't fold up flat the rounded top prevents you from putting anything on top of it. I found it a pain to store in the RV bay and gave it away. And ax I stated I went with a rectangular fold flat BBQ and then one step further to a cook stove BBQ with a laptop footprint in the bay. The longer you are on the road RV'ing the more the KISS theory comes into play. :C

RE: Got the power on today Yeaaaaaaa

.... I have never heard of any generator that exercised itself 365 days a year. Even the large commercial generators that I have installed on commercial projects only exercise themselves every week. .. I said PERIODICALLY runs = I.E. set to run on a consistent specific time table. I am sure there are different priced gens available. they said theirs had some sort of computer that allows them to monitor run time, propane use and/or out of propane etc. All I know is I will be schlepping water again when the next hurricane hits because one of those gens is not in my budget right now. Since I had to replace the roof from the last Hurricane Matthew! :B

RE: Need new SMALL Propane Grill

I have used all of these small portable BBQ's and they all work great for grilling. http://www.homedepot.com/catalog/productImages/1000/19/19f5b044-7f61-47a2-ab69-de5e78bf257e_1000.jpg height=400 Home Depot Stainless Steel https://ll-us-i5.wal.co/asr/60b11dcb-17e7-488a-9d7e-4492b0bce78d_1.a5c3595bb733dce4540fb99f52f95222.jpeg?odnWidth=180&odnHeight=180&odnBg=ffffff wallmart 20 byuck Walmart legs fold flat underneath for storage.AND Stainless steel burner. https://ll-us-i5.wal.co/asr/e4a04b25-ed89-44bb-a76c-708b0d7865d6_1.8db9da4621043813f540e36dae0275f1.jpeg?odnWidth=180&odnHeight=180&odnBg=ffffff Walmart wire legs fold up to secure lid for storage.

RE: Need new SMALL Propane Grill

The drawback of the weberQ is its bulky, wide with those handles, and has that darn rounded top. to pack in storage bay and expect to put anything on top of it. If you are a weekend RV'er that's one thing, but when every inch in a bay needs to be used wisely for full-time/snowbird it just doesn't cut it. After buying 'many' different BBQ's this is what I finally settled in with. Folds FLAT and very thin. Burner for cooking, grill for grilling and an optional skillet plate for cooking breakfast. They make them without the burner too, where its an all grill surface. They make these under many brand names for all the big box sporting stores, Bass Pro, Dick's, Gander MT, Cabella's etc. https://content.backcountry.com/images/items/900/PMS/PMS0067/ONECOL.jpg height=450

RE: Got the power on today Yeaaaaaaa

Friends of mine invested in a whole house generator when they built their house. Gotta tell you it IS pretty slick. 4,000 square ft and that gen powered up the air and everything for the duration they had the power out in their area. And boy is that gen real quiet. Just curious, how is the 'whole house' generator fueled? Thanks,MM. One of those regular house propane tanks only their's is buried in the ground. There's ads for them on TV and This old House all the time. Had my doubts but I got to see it first hand. If I win the lottery I'd definitely get one. We had no power from Irma and those people didn't even blink. While I am out gathering water from wherever like a caveman to flush my toilet! :B When the storm came and he lost his power, the Generac generator would not fire up and he ended up in the same boat as everyone else. Whole house generators are great but they need to be maintained, not forgotten. There's is maintained automatically. It freaks me out sometimes when I go over there because it is on a computer timer and it comes on periodically 365 days a year to keep it primed or whatever.

RE: What to do in Kentucky near these 2 state parks-suggestions?

I'd highly recommend Kentucky Horse Park CG. First of all you are IN the park at a CG. Whether you like horses or not the different varieties of shows that run every day of all sorts of disciplines are just amazing to watch. If you have a golf cart or toad or you can just walk to all the events. There are different attractions each month listed on their site. There are also incredible museums on the grounds and shops for fine art and all types of other things to wander around in and buy. Each event also has vendors selling all types of items. DW would like that and you too. The pavillion on the grounds of the CG also have many different types of clubs renting it. When I was there (and I forgot the name) a very unique square dancing competitive club was there. The music was great and the type of dancing was real upbeat with a lot of hoopin and stompin. Way different than the norm square dancing. I enjoyed two nights of that. Every time I stop there on my way South for "just the night" I end up staying for a week there is so much to see! :B
