RE: Casey Nocket sentenced for making her mark!

People like her and the Boy Scout leaders need to account for there stupid destruction.One Boy Scout leader. Should not be condemnation of them all. I beleave there were 2 in that group tipping stones. Maybe I was wrong. Money fines do not have much impact. Jail time and some hard labor in the parks might help. One tipping, one watching, another recording.

RE: Getting shocked.

I would suggest something like this Voltage Regulator - it lets you know the status of the ground without having to go inside and look at a meter plugged in.

RE: Students Blamed for Trashed Camp

Leaving behind coolers, tents, etc. I can tell you I was way too poor in college to leave something like that behind! I'm even poorer now - I would pickup any tents or coolers that others left.

RE: Blue Ox Sway Pro - Does it smooth out ride in TV?

Our trailer is at the upper end of the TW allowed for the Hensley. I have to measure TW each time (and usually move stuff around) to be sure we are under the 1400 LB limit. If I just pack normally and carry a bit of water, we would be in the 1600 to 1700 TW range. Exceeding the capacity of the Hensley. If 1700 is 12 percent of total trailer weight, then 1400 would put it under 10 percent - could this be part of your rough ride problem?

RE: James Island County Park fatality

They were local, so assuming they weren't camping. I can't imagine what they are going through.

RE: Camper satisfaction

Bought the one in the sig new on Halloween in 2009. Only problem - the manufacturer didn't put the hood vent directly over the stovetop, but halfway back. Cannot use the stovetop at all because of this (first time I tried it became obvious very quickly that the air was becoming unbreathable). I was only trying to make coffee, as I do all my cooking outside (learned my lesson in the old trailer when I fried some fish). I can still use the oven if needed. One thing I miss about the old hybrid we had - you had windows on all four sides and could always get a breeze. Now we only have windows on two sides. Um,, I don't understand this ? Why was the air becoming unbreatable ? I rarely ever use my stove vent when cooking. All it does is remove the cooking odors. It is not there for any other reason. I love my old TT and I am very satisfied with it. Your burning propane in a small enclosed area. More power to you if you can stand it without any ventilation.

RE: Draining fresh water tank

I would think the small drain as the majority here have stated having (and which I also have) is probably a safety feature - think about the traffic behind you if a larger valve all of a sudden worked loose while you are on the highway.

RE: FYI Regarding SC SP

All SC SP's I have reserved online have said this for years (including Wateree).

RE: Question for Blue Ox Sway Pro owners

If you re-read my original post, the front of my truck was on the blacktop drive making the back artificially low making it impossible for my power jack to lift it enough to make it easy. In reality, I see this condition often and needed a solution better than the supplied wrench. If you see this often and find it a problem - why not remove the bars at the front check-in? You have a power jack so it would take no more than 2 minutes. REMEMBER to pull the jack up before you move - I made one unusable one time by not remembering.

RE: Opinions on great Michigan Campgrounds For Young Children

The great thing about state and federal parks is they are cheaper and usually have some body of water and hiking trails. Kids love water - whether it be a river, lake, or ocean. Swimming, tubing, and fishing along with some hikes will keep them entertained all day (and sleep through the night).

RE: DW and backing up

Or she'll say "stop" I stop then "now goe this way" like the back of the teailer can turn on a dime. Over the years mine has gotten better about this. I got tired of telling her all the time "I need to turn WAY before you think I do!"

RE: New Mattress

In anticipation of our upcoming trip, we ordered a new RV short queen mattress from Overstock.com. Just asking, not questioning ... just wondering why if you're spending this much on a new mattress you wouldn't have ordered a full queen instead of an RV short queen which many if not most find aggravatingly short? :@ I "sort of" solved this issue myself by extending our short queen bed platform by 6", pulling the existing short queen mattress forward several inches, and stuffing the topper's extra length in the gap created between the head end of the mattress and the headboard. It works, but I notice Camping World now sells a Short Queen Bed Extender which I may invest in myself as a better solution that's still much less expensive than replacing the entire mattress. What we do - we have the short (new, stock felt like it was nothing but springs) and during the day it is in its normal position. At night, we pull it forward and put a body pillow behind it. Our regular pillows do just fine on top of the body pillow, and we have our space during the day,

RE: DW and backing up

Mine was going to try towing on one trip, but fortunately she was too sleepy. The trailer broke a leaf spring - glad I was driving and not her.

RE: Lower weight rated wd hitch on a heavier trailer, unsafe?

If it is safe, why doesn't Blue Ox just only sell the lower rated bars?

RE: Paper towel holder and opening drawers

I don't have any suggestions on the paper towel holder. I use an upright one that sits on the counter and tucks away in a cabinet during travel Same here - got a stainless one from Wally World that has a rubber bottom that really grips. I don't put it away, I leave it on the counter. Never had it fall in transit.

RE: Speed Question

I like to travel at 64 mph just to be safe. But lets look at the math: We typically drive 400 miles a day on a long trip. At 64 mph that takes 6 h 15 m. At 70 mph it takes 5 h 45 m. I will gladly eat the measly 30 minutes for the sake of safety. Those of you who travel shorter distances are saving even less time. So you think you won't get as injured doing 64 like you would if you were doing 70? I can't speak for the OP, but they probably meant that 64 is safer because it stays below the 65 rating for tires.

RE: V10 Higher Octane?

If it doesn't ping on regular then there's no need for higher octane. X2
