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: 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: Plug-In Chevrolet Express Van

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.
