RE: 2015 Jayco Eagle 314 BHDS outdoor kitchen

I don't see much use for that outdoor kitchen.. The sink looks awful shallow; the things I would wash outside are bigger post and pans that wont fit in sink inside. I usually cook on my Weber Q, or use my electric skillet outside. I can use also my coleman stove if I want to and it takes a lot less room that that kitchen.

RE: Sloped wall for a bead headboard

I bought a big body pillow... it fits in wedge area and then I pile more pillows on top to watch TV.. don't know about you, but I don't store much in cabinets over center of bed... too hard to get too and too much tongue weight.. can you stuff pillows up there overnight?

RE: Carpel Tunnel Surgery

my daughter is an OT and said it takes a very skilled surgeon to do a good job on hands, and that she would only consider a specialist with lots of practice and good referrals. Lots of nerves, ligaments, bones in a hand.. It is a very complex place to have some one possibly make a slip.

RE: Hanging items on an RV Door

Be sure you really want a towel bar on the door. I had a toilet paper holder on my door, and it was in the way if the door open all the way. I took it off because at night I would leave the door standing open all the way and then would hit the holder as I walked down the narrow hall past the door.

RE: NC State Fairgrounds - Christmas

blucrabbie, thanks for the reply, I was mainly concerned about at the availability. I thought I saw that the fairgrounds have a light display, so didn't know if they would be busy or not. I don't need an RV Park, but a place with electric and water so I can stay in my TT. I prefer staying in it over a hotel, and extra cost of pulling the TT and paying for camping is actually less than hotel for a few nights.

RE: Towable versus Motorized RV?

Don't forget you can tow a car behind a Class C too.. Not sure what engine and tow capacity the one you were looking at has, but my parents drove a 24 ft class C and towed a Chevy Cobalt.. gave them a car to use when touring, especially in historic areas where streets were narrow... just be sure to match the weight of what you are towing to your tow capacity.

RE: Vent Covers and Slideout Awnings

Definitely the vent covers.. I don't know that one brand is a lot better than the others.. don't have the slide topper, wish I did, but not enough to buy one at this point. I had a large level put on front of TT, makes backing into site much easier, as you can see where it is most level. My dealer agreed to install these add-ons that I bought at purchase for free. Another things I did was buy the propane cover with the opening at top.. makes turning propane on and off much easier.. It also slides on a bit easier than the one that came on TT. You also may want to go somewhere and sit on Jackknife sofa and hideabed and see which sits better. My jackknife doesn't have arms, so it is hard to get comfy when I am watching TV or reading. Also since back is soft and seat is stiffer, it sleeps horribly when opened.

NC State Fairgrounds - Christmas

My DD lives in Raleigh area (Holly Springs), and I am looking to take TT to visit for Christmas. I see NC State Fairgrounds has over 300 sites but does not accept reservations. Reviews look pretty good for what I am looking for -- place to park, sleep and be close to DD. My concern is if the park gets full the week of Christmas. I would hate to drive the 500 miles pulling the TT to not have a place to park. The neighborhood my DD lives is does not have any where I could park for even a few minutes without being at least a block away and then I couldn't stay long. For those in the Raleigh area or those that travel there often, am I going to be able to get a spot that I can get into easily? Also any suggestions for alternate parks, if Fairgrounds is likely to be full?

RE: Anyone Else Pre-Cook ?

This topic is primarily about precooking for camping, but I find doing it regularly makes week days less stressful. And getting ready to go in the TT isn't that much more difficult.. just decide on menu, grab precooked burger, sausage or casseroles and some veggies to go with and I am ready.

RE: 8cu ft refrigerator

How many of you that feel you need the larger fridge, spend time in rural areas where it could be an hour or more to a real grocery store? I am hoping to volunteer with state and national parks, where I could be that far from a real store.

RE: blog name help

How about something like Beth's View (of the Road) Liz's Sights Lizzie Looks at the US I used the shortened versions of your name, but you can use short or long version depending on what your family and close friends call you. Use your name along with some version of sight or looking, because we know you really have to see/look to appreciate the Glory of Nature and artist's usually look at things differently.

RE: Bedding

Mine was boring beige... and required dry-cleaning.. I wanted to change the color immediately and when I realized it couldn't (shouldn't) go in washer, I knew it had to go. It is packed up and I will put it back in TT when I sell. I will be likely taking all my personalized items out, including several large photo prints from my travels, pillows, throws, and storage ottoman. The bedspread that I put in the TT was an inexpensive one from closeout/outlet store and will likely be a bit worn by the time I sell my TT in 3-4 years, since it gets washed 2-3 times a year.

RE: Last weekend scored on a set of Pyrex pots/lids

GraciesDaddy, why can't you use the clear glass lids on the stove, oven or microwave?? I use mine on the stove and in the microwave all the time. They did make some plastic lids that were shaped like the glass at one time, but mine are actually glass. Oh yeah, I have the removable handles too.

RE: RV dump stations

Not sure about California, but all of the state parks I have been to in GA, FL, and SC had a dump station, except one that has sewer at every site. I think all will allow you to dump even (for a fee) even if you don't camp there. I often use the park just down the road from me, if I am ready to get home and don't want to dump as I leave park or camping location.

RE: portable ice maker

I have the one like mhardin posted the link for. I don't think the one with the bottle on top would work anywhere in my TT, except the middle of the floor. with the bottle on top, it would be pretty high. besides I don't think I could get the bottle up high enough. Seems like it would be a lot of hassle. I already don't use mine everytime I go. I have been known to leave it at home, because it just wouldn't be worth even that little bit of effort. Oh yeah, I paid less than $100 for mine on sale at Target.

RE: Newbie looking to buy first....well I'm not sure

OP, see a couple of folks on here recommending popups, and like them I had one when the kids were smaller. They are smaller and easier to tow, but my experience was both kids had to share a bed -- which was not their favorite thing. In fact, that was the cause of many arguments between them. Another thing was it seemed that we always had to pack up when it was wet-- either from heavy dew or rain and then open it back up at home to dry. another thing is you have to open it up to store anything in it for the trip. I love taking my clothes from house closet to TT without packing. throw my shorts and socks in a reusable shopping bag and I am ready to go. My bath supplies/towels/pots and pans stay in TT. With two small children, you might appreciate the ease of loading. I remember packing the PU late at night after the kids had gone to bed so I didn't have to deal with them while I was opening popup, loading and the closing it back up. And then someone had to entertain/keep an eye on the kids while trying to set up camp. Guess I am lazy, but I sure wouldn't want to do that again.

RE: Removing the Stickers/Decals from outside of TT?

If you plan to sell in a few years, you might remove the Texas stuff to give yourself a larger audience when you go to sell. I know that I would not want that huge TX flag on the back of any RV I owned. I am not from TX ans don't think I could every develop that diehard love of Texas that it would take to want that flag and the rest of the Texas decals. If there is a small TX logo indicating that it was a special edition, I might consider leaving it, but I would definitely remove the BIG TEXAS stuff.

RE: Color of LED bulbs

One thing a friend told me as I was trying to understand how to convert to LED's. As we get older, the lenses in our eyes yellow and we see things as being yellower. She recommended going to a higher K light to offset the yellow that my eyes naturally see. I like one in the 4000-5000 range.

RE: Off-grid vs RV park

If you can't go the box planters like muddydogs suggested, do some research on growing veggies in pots. there are lots you can grow if you sit several flower pots around. by using pots, you may have to water more frequently or fertilize (you can do it organically) but you can have veggies without the permanence of regular garden. My mom grows all her tomatoes, peppers, etc in pots rather than the ground, just because it is easier. Good soil to start, no digging holes in clay and then soil conditioning and she has less weeds. With pots, she can move to adjust amount of sun/shade, if a plant isn't doing well and watering pots actually uses less water than watering ground. (She uses old coolers, that have broken handles, hinges, etc.. helps insulate the roots both winter and summer. She has these in back yard of house, where they are not visible to street.. you may not have that option).
