RE: Perry, Ga rally

Walaby, the one I attended in Atlanta, had seminars, vendors and entertainment.. I did attend one in Perry a few years ago for the day. I don't remember if it was fall or spring, but they said it was smaller of two.. They had a few vendors, but most were not really RV related. (jewelry, cleaning stuff, pots and pans, etc). I was disappointed as I found it very cliquey and was not really welcomed into the group. Everything seemed to be oriented toward the chapters (that I don't belong to). I don't know what show you attended but the 1916 FMCA Family reunion in Perry Ga had over 3000 coaches in attendance and over 8000 people in attendance. You apparently missed the large buildings full of vendors and the outside displays including all the new coaches to tour. Bill The one I attended in Perry was a Good Sam State Rally... the same as what is planned for Spring 2017... What the OP had asked about.. Not a FMCA member, so didn't attend it..

RE: Perry, Ga rally

There are dump stations on the fairgrounds complex; however, there are some RV sites with sewage. If you download the http://www.georgiagoodsam.org/uploads/2/4/1/5/24158056/s17_georgia_gs_rv_rally_registration_spring_2017.pdf, you will see that it says first 350 confirmed reservations get water and sewage. I attended a GS rally at Atlanta Raceway, and they offered pump services as well as dump station, since RV's set up weren't able to move easily -- basically once you were on site, you were there until you left.

RE: My girlfriend wishes to go to college

You show PA as your location; so may want to check with PA public colleges. My SIL is enrolled in an on-line degree program with community college in my town. He has never lived in this town, but does live in-state. InState tuition at public colleges/universities is generally less expensive than Out of State rates. Also tuition varies from school to school within state. As long as the school and program is accredited, the prestige of the school doesn't matter, with a very few exceptions. Real world example, my MBA from local university is just as valuable as one from major universities (with maybe the exception of Harvard).

RE: Jayco Jay Flight

My Jay flight came with all wiring for TV.. both in bedroom and LR... just no mounts.. (actually LR had a cabinet for big tv, but I chose to use it for other things).. I bought a swivel mount from WalMart.com (with local store pickup) for a good price and then mounted it to cabinet rail. Place marked for mounting in BR, just never bothered.. I don't watch lots of TV.

RE: How Much Gas When Storing....

So does this apply when MH is sitting being lived in too? I plan to trade TT for MH within the next two years.. sometime after that I will be selling house and living fulltime in MH. I may sit in a location for a month or up to three as I plan to volunteer with state and national parks. Should I fill tank before I park for long term stay?

RE: Rescued my camper

I have visited all of the dealers in Byron, plus others in GA, and I must admit the CW there in Byron made my blood boil. I wanted to look at some specific MH's and stated plainly I wasn't ready to buy. The salesman kept insisting on asking me questions and trying to "qualify me" for buying. I don't know if it was because I was a female by myself (yes, he asked what my husband thought) or it that is standard. But what I owe on my current RV and current Vehicle should have in NO way been asked at that point, when I clearly said I was passing through Byron on the way home from a business trip and I wanted to physically look at to get a feel for size, some of the MH's I had looked at on-line. OP, I would not accept any RV with a wet floor as hot and dry as it has been here for so long. Water under a slide is a real scary situation. I believe I would be contacting a lawyer as I contacted corporate. Maybe even have lawyer write a letter on your behalf. Contact CW in writing with a demand for full refund. Then look at other dealers. I know several people that dealt with Campers Inn there and were quite happy.

RE: Raleigh to Ocean Lakes

although you are there already, for future information US 1 from Raleigh to NC line is pretty good traveling. It is not as good into SC, as it is narrower and a bit curvier, but is still doable. I took US1 from Columbia all the way to Raleigh on a trip up there pulling TT and it wasn't a bad trip. I often take US1 out of Raleigh to somewhere around the line, as my DD lives near US1 in Holly Springs.

RE: brake or wiring issues

Tvov, I thought I had read something about some Ford trailer plugs/integrated truck brakes being suspect, but couldn't find anything.. I will keep watch... as I had brakes even when truck said I didn't... or at least I didn't ever feel the trailer pushing the truck. just glad I don't see a big bright NO TRAILER warning anymore.

RE: brake or wiring issues

okay, update on trailer issue.. truck was giving "trailer wiring fault" error and if i touched brake controller, I got no trailer. error appeared sometime (not immediately) after I had the breakaway replaced. Did have to drive off the road to go around a tree down on way home last trip before error appeared. Took trailer to local trailer shop (not RV shop but a commercial trailer repair shop). Less than an hour after leaving it, I got a call, they had jacked up each wheel tested the brake with power and tested the breakaway and found nothing wrong. couldn't get it to not work on any wheel. Mid afternoon, I went to pick up thinking I would have to take truck to Ford dealer for computer analysis. Mechanic jacked up and demonstrated braking and breakaway for one wheel. I then plugged my truck in to check with my truck and NO ERROR.. everything worked like it should. Trailer shop exorcised a gremlin. No real clue as to what problem was, unless the jacking up and down wiggled something. Drove home and parked trailer with no lack of connection. anyhow, I am good now.. still don't know what happened, but happy I didn't expend tons of money chasing a gremlin and that I get to take the trailer out next weekend, since I missed last weekend due to concern over brakes.

RE: brake or wiring issues

okay, I just saw another post about breakaway pin being pulled and trailer hooked to power causing issues with brakes.. I did have my breakaway pin broken possibly activating brakes. I cut wire at direction of shop, to take trailer to get breakaway assembly replaced. no issues on trailer then or at beginning of next trip. Now I am wondering if the breakaway pin caused this issue.. If so, I am getting angry, because yard guy broke pin... and didn't tell me.. I just found cable sitting on top of propane tank.

RE: brake or wiring issues

I know it is either wiring to brakes or brakes themselves. No brakes when towing.. lights all work. I tested truck with new trailer and everything worked. Would a semi trailer type shop be a good option? Or RV shop with 2 mechanics to do everything be better?

brake or wiring issues

I have an issue with my brakes on Jayco TT or either in wiring. My truck (2010 F150) gives a trailer wiring error when I plug in. I have cleaned connections and used dielectric grease, no help. I tried plugging in new trailer and got no error. I have a local dealer that I trust, but they are a small shop with only a couple of mechanics so have to do a wide variety of types of work. I am considering going to trailer shop, (like for semi trucks). There are a couple in our area, that have been around for a while but no online reviews. If I call them, what kind of questions should I ask? I know just before I had the error, I had tires replaces and bearings checked/greased. Returning home from next trip (about 50 miles each way), severe thunderstorms had brought down a tree in road, and I had to drive off side of road to get around (yes, slowly). I had a flash of an error during that trip home, but I forgot about it until a month later when I went to go again. At that point, I blamed error on dirty connections and drove the mile to very local campground. Could driving off the road have caused a brake issue? should I recommend shop look at brakes on that side first?

RE: Is it worth paying for Workamper News?

Starfire, you probably need to sit down with someone and talk through your resume. You need to emphasize your skills and not create a time linear resume. If what you plan to do requires being self-directed, then you should highlight where you have been that way. If you are trying to work in gift shop or reservations/check in, you should emphasize where you used customer service skills. If you have done something as a volunteer that would demonstrate appropriate skills or experience, list it. You may have to do several different resumes for different jobs. Everywhere now expects a resume tailored to the job. Do not expect to make the same amount of money as a temporary worker as you do full-time in a permanent career type job. Yes there are some temp jobs that pay very well, but many do not pay that great. Be prepared and aware of what prevailing rates for those type jobs are.

RE: Hurricane Mathew

I stayed at my daughters house. It was such a nothing event the pool level didn't even rise. could have been much worse Be glad it was a nothing event for you. My DD lives just outside of Raleigh, NC and spent Saturday fighting to keep flood waters out of her house. She was supposed to be at Myrtle Beach, but decided to stay home. From the pics of MB and the flooding in NC, she made a good decision, but is still surrounded by closed roads.

RE: Table top

Hudsoner... thanks for the link to the BB&B folding chairs.. I hadn't thought of them, but they have some really nice looking ones to keep in mind as I plan remodel/upgrade of Class A I plan to buy.

RE: Hurricane Matthew and I-95

For those of you that are avoiding I95, thank you. My DD is there and they have a big mess with the flooding. Unless you have lived through flooding like that you can't imagine the mess, horror and stress those in the area are going through. As you travel through Atlanta, if you come in on I85, stay on it and then take 75 South as they divide. I would seriously taking the I85-I75 connector straight through time rather than I285 around town. 285 is always extremely busy with lots of big trucks pushing all the lanes, since they can't go through town.

RE: Hurricane Matthew and I-95

Just heard on weather channel that flooding in NC has caused issues with I95 near Fayetteville... so fairly far inland. Again, I encourage you to see another route and not interfere with locals trying to recover from storm.
