RE: Terrible Experience

I read the reviews for this at rvparkreviews. This CG caters to families that want entertainment provided for their kids. That was easy enough to figure out by reading everybody's reviews. When you consider that, the $20 is probably not too high, so as to discourage people from bringing the carloads of cousins to visit. They may be empty now, but they may make enough profit over the summer months to cover. When staying at a CG, it's best to find out all the charges before you incur one.

RE: Long term reliability of GM 8.1 Liter

Great motor just thirsty. Will pass everything but a gas station. Yep. Nothing more fun than being able to accelerate up a steep grade.

RE: Battery recommendation

My old Trojan 6 volts just gave out after almost 8 years of service. I got two of these My new maintenance free 6 volts Shipping was free. Fedex wanted a signature, so I had them re-routed to their local shop. Each box weighed 72 pounds.

RE: Yes you can drive 55 and 60.

Sammy Hagar didn't like 65 either. Thats why he wrote the song.. :) Sammy actually couldn't drive 55.Actually, he recorded it both ways.. I have a concert CD where he corrects the audience to 65 Anyway ., interesting thread... I do 62-63 also. Just seems like a sweet spot But he sure made some good tequila (Cabo Wabo) - it's the best!

RE: How do you feel about people walking through your campsite?

I paid extra for a site that is closer to the river for my convenience, not others. I have a very large dog who has no problem with strangers that we invite into our site - he does have a problem with those that we have not. I have expensive gear - if something goes missing, I will mention to the authorities who was walking through my site uninvited. A window in my trailer may be facing a part of the site that is only visible if you are in the site - somebody may be changing inside that has a reasonable expectation that they do not have to pull the curtain for that window. You wouldn't walk through a stranger's hotel room uninvited because it is a shortcut to the pool.

RE: OIder SUV for towing hybrid trailer

Curious question - there's a hybrid that weighs that much?

RE: Another TV question...long or short bed?

Do they still put smaller fuel tanks in the short beds? I had a 2010 F250 gasser that only had a 26 gallon tank. It only had a 5.4L engine, so I would have to stop frequently.

RE: WDH with air suspension, no standard answer?

What I've found that works best for me - I move the ball under the tongue and turn off the TV. I put the tongue on, winding the jack off the ground. I let it sit for about 30 minutes. I go back and without turning on the TV, I jack it back up (attached) and add the bars and let it back down. Any other way and it just doesn't feel right.

RE: campground in Augusta GA area?

Hamilton-Branch State Park is about 30 minutes away (in South Carolina). Stayed there one January, and there were only two other sites of the 200 being used. All sites are on lake. According to reviews, it can get kind of hectic when the weather is warm (boat ramp in park). Bring plenty of water hoses - spigot on wrong side of site.

RE: Taking a Poll, Do you Plug in or Not?

60 watt solar panel with 30 amp controller are always plugged in when I am at home. No need to disconnect anything, batteries stay charged.

RE: Anyone ever been to the Pisgah forrest in NC?

Seems like alot of the nice campgrounds dont have power or water. Whats the weather like up there in may? 70s night and 80s day? Ive always been there mid to late summer and fall Davidson River has a spot where you can fill your fresh water when you first pull in - and there are several common spigots on each loop (if you bring enough hose, you can refill from these if needed - we never need to). The temps in the hottest of summer hardly ever get to 80 - and it gets low 60's at night. You don't need A/C, so as long as you can go without the microwave also, you don't need 110.

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: 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.
