RE: Second water hookup.... What is it for?

Hook it up after you drain the black tank turn it on if water comes out it's the tank flush. Also realize that sometimes these flush nozzles get clogged for one reason or the other, so this test may not be absolute.

RE: Ovenight in a Truck Stop

I use Walmart parking lots. Truck stops are way too noisy. And they smell like urine. Really, just walk to the frickin' bathroom, dude. Even the RV/truck area of rest areas often reek of urine. If they all think like the OP, I guess they are marking what they think is their territory.

RE: Ovenight in a Truck Stop

Man oh man I don't know why the rv'ers would want to stay in a truck stop when there are so many great rest stops. I've stayed at many of them overnight without any issues. Many states specifically prohibit overnight parking in rest areas and/or limited to 8 hours. So, we are just following the laws. While you might get away from it, I'd rather not worry about being awakened in the middle of the night and told to move on.

RE: Ovenight in a Truck Stop

Just for fun, went out to the Pilot/Flying J site and it actually says this: Free overnight parking Had enough driving for one day? Pull in to one of our RV reserved parking spots or any other open parking space. Grab some dinner, stock up on supplies, and spend the night to get ready for that long drive ahead of you tomorrow. http://www.pilotflyingj.com/rv-amenities I'm going to go eat some fresh, crispy vegetables now...

RE: Ovenight in a Truck Stop

Surprised this one was left to run. I'll just point out that T/A, Pilot and Flying J all refer to their facilities as "Travel Centers," not truck stops. I try to be as considerate to truckers as I can whether I'm in the rig or the toad, but I will continue to overnight at travel centers when it benefits my travel plans.

RE: Outer Banks or Virginia Beach?

I'd go for Outer Banks. Virginia Beach can be a bit noisy if the fighter jets are flying.

RE: Camping on the Florida panhandle

Ditto on Henderson State Park. Also St. George Island is a favorite of ours.

RE: Looking for a unique layout

Keystone Residence Another... Forest River Wildwood DLX 4002Q BTW, the way I found this was to use Google Image Search and just searched for "2 bedroom RV" and scrolled through the images looking at the floorplans. It's a great way to search for about anything!

RE: Online shopping while on the road

Use a UPS store. About a $10 fee. You should also change your CC address to where you are so the card will go through. Ditto. I have done this a couple of times when I needed something badly and would not be sitting still long enough to order+ship.

RE: OK, What's the trick to reserving on Reserve America?

FL in July? No thanks! Snowbirds are long gone. California northern coast for me! Highs in the mid-60s. :C

RE: OK, What's the trick to reserving on Reserve America?

It is in the morning, not midnight. The trick is to see what is available, look at the pictures and description and decide if it is for you. Have alternatives as well. As others have said it depends on the state. Colorado changes at midnight and if you want a popular site in some state parks you better be ready at midnight, not 12:01am. Can't believe they have us all acting like teenage girls trying to get tickets to a Justin Bieber concert. Something is just not right there. As a result, I just seldom even try to get in state parks.

RE: OK, What's the trick to reserving on Reserve America?

As a fulltimer, I seldom expect to be able to get a site on RA for any length of time. Seems to me locals go in and reserve up all the weekends for months in advance, so as I ramble around and decide where to go visit there is little available. It sure would be nice if they would reserve some sites as "weekly only," maybe combine that with first come, first serve. Anyway, the way I have tried to work the site in the past is look at the calendar view. There you can see open days on all the sites and maybe stitch together an extended stay, even though you have to move a time or two. I've made 3 reservations before for a single visit. Of course there was a fee for each online reservation. It would be more cost effective to look online, find the collection of sites and days that would work and then call the park directly to make it as one reservation.

RE: Tag Axel

Right, the tag axle is not optional equipment to be ordered - it is there to carry the additional weight of heavier coaches.

RE: Might be a bit overweight.. (sarcastic)

That brought a smile to me! Surprised I have never seen someone doing that when dead-heading. Cute.

RE: Washer & Dryer option worth it?

I think the value is mainly one of convenience. Sometimes the park laundry might not be available when you want to wash, then you have to watch the time and get back over there to move from washer to dryer, then again to get out of the dryer and hope there is a decent/clean place to fold. With the onboard units, it is much easier to work the chore into other things you want/need to do. If a full-timer or heavy traveler, I think it would be worth it, maybe not so much for weekend warriors. Didn't know they now have 240V dryers. I'd definitely go that way if I had the choice.

RE: Store manager yelled "Get the (sounds like duck) out of my p

Maybe RV owners need body cams. Would make for some interesting YouTube episodes perhaps! We could call them "Customer Service Cams."

RE: Does "free WiFi" ever work?

Not something you can depend on. Often frustratingly slow even for surfing when it works at all. I have satellite and broadband so seldom even try to log onto the park wifi. Normally just a big waste of my time.

RE: Lat Long

I had noticed an issue with GPS coordinates on rvparkreviews.com and submitted a support ticket. It sounds like they get the coordinates from wherever Google Maps thinks the address is. So it is likely the underlying map data that is incorrect. Good Sam probably does something similar - no one is actually looking at a map and capturing the coordinates. Instead their system probably calls a Google Maps function, gives it the address and it returns the coordinates of where the map data thinks that address is. Or not. :h For example, here is a web developer describing that very thing: http://atomiku.com/2012/12/get-gps-coordinates-from-google-api-with-php/

RE: HELP door latch broke

Yep, mine broke and Trimark was very helpful. If you can send them a photo it would help, and they will likely send you a spec diagram. Based on that I ordered, got what I needed, did a better job than Monaco at adjusting it and it has been better then new ever since. As a fulltimer on the road, probably one of the only things I have ever paid overnight delivery on!
