RE: Summersville Lake Retreat in WV - No Go!

Aggressive? You blast a business for following their own stated policy. You're frustrated that you are out of money - but it's not the CG's fault you had an emergency. Everybody cancelling and wanting a refund against the stated policy will say it was an emergency. I've had to cancel reservations twice in our TT adventures - one when my father died and one when my mother-in-law had emergency heart surgery. Lost money on both - didn't blame the CGs.

RE: Summersville Lake Retreat in WV - No Go!

One hit wonder who joins to bash about a park following its stated cancellation policy, and is mad that they did. They are also a one hit wonder over at rvparkreviews with the same whine.

RE: Vent covers

They are cheap and easy to install. I would hate to see how much the manufacturers would add to the price if they were standard.

RE: Colleton State Park in Walterboro, SC

Coming from Maryland, you would be closer to Poinsett State Park, which is a gem that doesn't get much traffic. Roads in park are bad, but navigatable. Mind you, bring EVERYTHING you need cause it is in the middle of nowhere. Try and get site 17 - your hybrid will fit in it and it is the only W/E site right on a HUGE field.

RE: Ratings of Parks

Having a "9" rating tells me that I will be staying in a class A park. Are you saying that a CG that has a 9 or above should not allow any Class C's, FW's, TT's, popups, only Class A's?

RE: Advise on things you think you do not need.

If you have a 3/4 or one ton, be sure the tire pump you have can handle the tires. I found out on one trip after having a blow out that the pump could only get the spare up to low 60's. Requested that Father's Day that I get a bigger one - now it can handle the 80 needed very fast.

RE: Just Have To Vent, Thank You ...............

Interesting that on all the reviews at rvparkreviews for this CG that mentions the Wi-Fi, there is only one other that had a beef with it - and that was because they used to charge 4.95/day back in 2008.

RE: Can we expect these shenanigans?

Everybody tries to nickel and dime you nowadays. How many places have tip jars at the register now?

RE: Blue Ox Sway Pro Installation

I'm in the processing of buying a trailer, and for safety reasons I can't pick up without a distribution hitch (fully understand that). The dealer is asking $1000 including install for a Blue Ox. Is that reasonable or are they taking me. Should I just buy it and install it in the parking lot. I paid 556.25 for mine from Amazon - I wouldn't think an install would be charged more than $100 IMHO. If you are buying a Blue Ox from the dealer that is selling you the trailer, you would think they would install it for free - or heavily discounted.

RE: How to Run TV from 12 Volt Receptacle in Trailer???

They make 12 volt tv's.

RE: Road runner campground red river nm

Why did they close the first time - coyotes?

RE: Black flushing

Attach the clear elbow so you can see if it is flushing stuff out.

RE: Big SUV or truck

I've got an $800 stroller that I don't want scratched up. $800 stroller? And you're worried about the cost of fuel and that an SUV costs more than a pickup?

RE: # of ford, gm, dodge/ram trucks at our CG this weekend

My official count from my trip the past 5 nights - first three nights I enjoyed Heineken Lights, the 4th night Corona Lights, and last night I had a bottle of Pinot Grigio and finished that with a couple of Sierra Nevada Pale Ales. When I did look at other sites, I was looking more at the TT's, FW's, A's and C's (and tents) than what the TV's were. Tonight since I am back home, I will go break out the Cabo Wabo. FWIW, out front is a GMC, a Ford, and a Honda.

RE: Is the left side of my trailer heavier?

Could be heavier if your slide is on that side.

RE: Vehicle taxes where you live... how bad?

That's because your Yukon is an SUV body - they only do the GCVW thing for trucks. I was given the option of not declaring the gross combined weight, but was told the tickets are very expensive if I'm caught overweight. They didn't do that when I had F-250 nor Dodge 2500 either. Maybe it's just in your county.

RE: Fridge won't work on 12 volts

Popups usually have the three way, as those fridges are so small they can run on 12 DC. If your fridge has two doors on the outside (one for fridge, one for freezer), it is only LP/110. While the amount of gas used is negligible, you can run for 4-6 hours on the hottest day with nothing turned on to the fridge - provided it is already cooled down, full, and the doors stays shut. I usually start my trip with it off then turn it on after gassing the TV later down the road.

RE: What to use to keep battery charged while sitting?

The main item affecting fuel mileage is frontal area, not weight. The frontal area of a plastic box would be about the same as the aluminum one. What Barney said.
