RE: Do you use your kitchen.

Design flaw in my trailer put the hood vent too far back - so the stove top isn't safe too use. I sometimes use the oven to cook potatoes, but that's about it. I prefer cooking outside. In our old trailer the stove top was usuable, but after frying some fish one time I decided to never do that again.

RE: dumping water off awning

I've always left one side lower - but during a severe downpour a few years back, it collected a ton of water, which caused the crossbar to bend. That is now actually a good design - I don't roll it out the last few inches, so the crossbar is bowed down - it never collects water anymore.

RE: Please THINK Before You Review

My favorite ever (of one of my favorite places) - "People looked unhappy and mad. Kids were crying and people were loud."

RE: matress is terrible

We got this one RV mattress. We also got a body pillow (cheap at Wally World) - during the day it sits on top, at night we pull the matress out a bit and but the body pillow behind it, then put our other pillows on top of that. We don't have enough room to have a longer mattress all the time.

RE: RV parks that don't post rates

So many have to pay a company to do it for them and it is not cheap. A good service would make the rates be pulled from a database, and give the end user an easy way to update it. You're correct, but how much does a good service cost? Fort a large CG internet cost may be negligible however to a small rural CG those cost maybe a significant part of the operating budget. This would be a one time charge - not a recurring one. A good service doesn't necessarily mean expensive - it means someone who provides good service.

RE: chevy suburban

Have had both, and could open either one while hitched. The advantage of the liftgate is if you are loading groceries or something while it is raining, the liftgate acts like an umbrella.

RE: torn between 2 TT floor plans - toddler's parents need help!

http://www.kerrvillerv.com/brands/towable/one/30re.png Supposedly that is a 2012 30RE floorplan. I don't see why you don't go ahead and open up the sofa around 7:30 for the kid. If you and the wife want to stay up later, then stay outside (that's what we always did when the kids were smaller). If you would rather stay inside, then do it quietly at the dinette or in the bedroom. You have a camper that is paid for and is a good fit for your size family - wait until your family is bigger or your child is older and wants to bring friends before you worry about getting a BH.

RE: Western North Carolina - Suggestions?

Just a few miles into Pisgah Forest is Davidson River CG. Showers and toilets, water spigots on each loop, and a dump station. And you would get there at the beginning of trout season. Convenient to Brevard, Asheville, End of World, etc.

RE: Removing WDH at site

Leave it in. Just be careful when pulling in and out of a parking lot where the driveway is steep.

RE: RV Park Reviews??

For years on the rvparkreviews forums people have been asking for this and asking for that. So they put in a new site that added this and that. They are NOT going back to the old format. Just like everyone else, when I first went to the old site, I had to learn where everything was. Same with the new site. Learned it and it is fine.

RE: Rude RV Park Manager

Sounds like from your second post that you already thought it was in a bad neighborhood. Would you want your wife or daughter to leave an office and go with a man (a stranger) to an area where there was nobody else (in this bad neighborhood)? And after he's told no, he asks again? By asking again for her to leave the office and go with you to an area in a bad neighborhood where there is no one else around, she told you that you ask too many questions and to go elsewhere. Maybe there's more to the story, but based on what you have said so far, I'm with her.

RE: New Enclosed Trailer, damaged by dealership

Another issue and ask this first: did the safety trailer brake lanyard set the trailer brakes? If not, then it is not adjusted correctly I thought that was only if it came completely away from the tow vehicle. Seems like if they came on while it's riding the chains, that would cause it to pull back hard on the chains and possibly toss the tongue out of the chains altogether - not to mention what it could do to the tow vehicle or the driver's reaction to that.

RE: Batteries Stolen...Now What?

I wouldn't replace the batteries until the parking is more secure. Good luck. This is what they would find in my yard: http://www.storenelson.com/bruester.jpg You can even see him in Google's street view of our house: http://www.storenelson.com/bruester1.jpg

RE: RV Park Reviews

I wonder what all the complainers did the first time they went to the old site. Did they complain they didn't know how to use it, or did they just learn it?

RE: RV Park Reviews

For years people have been posting at RVPR wanting it to do this, wanting it to do that. So since nobody was posting on those threads to not do this and not do that, they went and got a website that can do this and can do that. They are not going to go back to when it couldn't do this and couldn't do that.
