RE: First trip of the year!

Stay Safe! Glad you were able to repair or rig the wiring. My cousin had his TT de-hitch (someone stole his hitch pin) last year (or the year before) when leaving Promised Land, and it cut through all the wires, he left it in the parking lot and returned to rewire it.

RE: How can I find matching cabinetry and hardware?

I ordered matching doors for our rig from here.... Hardware was another story, I just found something close at the orange box and swapped it out with the bathroom hardware. http://www.kitchendoordepot.com/

Watkins Glen

We are considering Watkins Glen State Park in NY for a week stay. (We have been to Letchworth State Park twice and want try another park) When I was on the website to check out the park it doesn't have anything other larger than 30 TT. I usually type in 40 foot TT so there is room for the TT and the truck. So I wanted to ask fellow RV'rs who have been there if the sites are small. And ask what anyone could tell me about and has photographs of Ground Mohawk Village Loop

RE: Ricketts Glen State Park PA and 38 foot TH?

Make sure you research your directions, there are two ways to get to the Park. We have not been there since we bought our TT in 2004. Our last trip was while we were still tent camping, the hill getting to the park is a very very steep incline. The breaks on our van were hot when we got to the bottom. I could not imagine towing a TT up the hill. For us to go there the back way w/o the hill would double our trip so we have not been back. Thank being said BEAUTIFUL Park, be sure to hike the trails !

RE: bike rack options for a TT / TV

I ran into this issue years ago when I scratched the woodwork in the TT taking a bike out. My buddy and I made bike racks out of PVC pipe for 20 bucks, I customized mine to allow me to carry wood in bins between the bikes. Been using it for years.

RE: walmart

Our local code does not permit it at Wally World either because of local camp ground objection. However there are always Rigs in the parking lot over night. I guess the store doesn't bother them.

RE: Looking for Light Trailer Recommendations

When we moved up from Tenting to RVing, our tow vehicle was a 1990 Chevy Van with a 5.8 (350) motor and a 325 rear. Our HTT had a GVWR of 4800lbs. Going up a hill was an adventure to say the least. Always drove watching the temperature gage would have to race down a hill to make it up the next. In hind sight I should have hand the rear gears changed out. Not giving advice just real experience.

RE: Etiquette on contacting past owner of your new RV

I discovered information in my units paperwork when I purchased mine and called them. They were able to give a lot of information and they were glad I called. Don't call if you want to complain about anything on the unit and be prepared if they tell you something bad about the unit and that's why sold it. I would not mind being called, we loved out last HTT I could tell them we only traded it in to up-size. As a matter of fact the couch always had a blanket on it so it didn't have dirt issues, no leaks, regular maintenance, yes we had a dog, no we don't smoke. As for how much we received on the trade I would not tell them that..... The general question for a previous owner of a rig would be to ask if there were any problems and why they got rid of it. Since they no longer own the TT they may be very up front with issues the dealer doesn't know about or is choosing to not tell a new buyer. We had two problems with our current used TT and both were an easy fix, however one I found when it almost killed me (literally). And I do wonder if the dealer knew about it.
