RE: Wildlife

yeah, I had the squirrels eat my propane hoses too.. One thing I do now is leave the tank cover open at the house. They wont get in there with it open like they did when it was closed.

RE: Camp ground laundries

I have been in a couple of state park campgrounds laundry and seen people putting dirty things in the dryer to just dry them. Especially after a rain storm. throwing sandy, wet stuff in to dry out a bit and don't worry about cleaning the mess left. I have seen some pretty nasty stuff in washer (fish scale, gut and blood coated) and the washer wasn't cleaned afterwards. I have also seen some dirty things at laundry near my house and had the heat from the dryer melt the backing on a bedspread. (granted it was a cheap one) First dry it was still wet... second was melting nylon. A half a day blown to wash and dry clothes and over $10 to wash bedspreads, blankets and rugs from RV. I went to laundry because the comforter wouldn't fit in mine and I swore off going again. I will wash either one item at a time or wait until I am visiting DD and can use her large family size front loader.

RE: fort bragg, CA campgroun

Just got to say, although you put CA in your question, I was wondering why so many people were naming so many places I had never heard of. I was thinking Ft Bragg NC, the large Army base, about an hour from my DD and SIL

RE: Georgia Trailer Registration Regulations

New owner can take signed title to county tag office, change registration to GA and get a tag issued to them. When they get ready to bring home to GA, put the new tag on, and head East. Travel Trailers are treated like utility and boat trailers and not like autos/trucks in Georgia. Taxes are based on value and county where it is based. My county is lower than some around, but not the lowest in the state. It all depends on how well the county manages its finances and how sources of tax income there are in the county.

RE: Class A's with overhead bed over drivers seat?

I looked at several different Class A's from different manufacturers and I think almost all are going to that option in some models. I know I looked at several different Winnebago lines, and several Thor lines and each had one. I think that is the "latest and greatest" option that they are all adding.

Georgia RV & Camper Show

So anyone been to or have information on Georgia RV & Camper show the last weekend in September. Website says it has been moved from North Atlanta Trade Center to Cobb Galleria with twice the space, but doesn't show anything about how many RV's dealers or accessory dealers will be there. Trying to decide if it is worth driving from Columbus for the day. I am wanting to look at Class A floorplans for a future used purchase. currently have TT, so am open to accessories for either.

RE: No Travel Full Timing Questions

FYI, I just today talked to someone about putting a well in on our property in a very rural county. No permit required for well. Well starts at approx $4000 for no deeper than 200 ft, 45 gal tank and small pump (1 hp I think). small pump will be enough for RV or small home, but not strong enough for irrigation system or lots of water use. The county I am talking about is one of the poorest in the state and the property (over 100 acres) is far away from any city or even any town services.

RE: Florida Hurricane I'm in the path

fla-gypsy, aren't you more in NE area of FL? Have several co-workers that live in Jax, and my son is in Valdosta. Haven't heard from Jax folks, but my son was okay... other than being asked to check on a friend at 5 am. A friend called me to have him check on daughter. Her rental house had a tree fall and they had to be rescued from house. She wasn't hurt, just scared to death. Anyhow, hope all turn out okay.

RE: Baton Rouge bypass query

RE: Full time - National medical access

Don't think there is... I know my DD as a medical professional has had to start over with locating a job and then being at the bottom of the totem pole, each time they have relocated with her husband's job. I don't know that such a network would be a great thing. I live where one hospital has created a monopoly (and the courts agreed) and it is impossible to get a true second opinion from someone who is not part of that hospital without driving over a hundred miles.

RE: Sorry... another wheel chock question

Harbor Freight has a variety of sizes of rubber chocks, so you can get the size that you want. I have found I like them better than the plastic ones, because I have seen the plastic ones slip, especially on gravel or concrete pad. I use the X chocks for stability... it helps with the bounce from walking around inside, especially when my mom who has replacement knees and walks a bit heavy is with me. If I am just staying in trailer for a single night, I usually don't bother with X chocks, but always use the rubber ones.. I also use the Andersen Levelers with their chocks.. makes leveling easy and I am a bit more confident in those than the cheap yellow plastic chocks..

RE: Roaming Rvers September Rally from the 9th to 11th, 2016

I made my reservation. And I know you made yours because I was checking where you are going to be.... I couldn't decide if I wanted to be close or far away... LOL... really I was checking, so I could get close.

RE: A-liners, anyone?

one of the things about the A Liner is opening and closing and having to stow stuff when it is closed. I have used one a couple of times, as the base I work on has them for rent. They are super easy to pull, a little challenging to back (so short), but do require setting up before use. I really like that I can load my TT over several days without doing anything more than opening the door. In my opinion the A Liner is too much like a popup, just has harder sides. It really depends on what your plans are. I just talked to a co-worker yesterday, who had rented the A Liners several times, and said he and his wife had decided on a regular TT.. because they didn't have to set up and take down. He has a SUV to tow with and just chose a 15 ft TT that was well within his weight limitations.

RE: Total knee replacement issues.

My 80 yr old mother had her knees replaced 8-10 years ago and she can out squat me. I have had 3 meniscus repair surgeries on one knee, and will likely have to have it replaced at some point. Mom was extremely diligent about her therapy both before and after her surgery, and hosted a family reunion at a nearby campground 6 weeks after her second knee replacement. She does now use a cane, but not because of her knees, she has a separate lower back issue and uses cane to force herself to walk upright and not to slouch.

RE: Savanah, ga

No one mentioned Ft McCallister State Park. It is just outside Savannah. Easier to get to than Skidaway, but no FHU. Water Electric Only. These are wooded sites with lots of separation between sites. Because it is wooded, some of the turns are tight if you are long or not comfortable with tight turns between trees. Red Gate is good location, but absolutely NO privacy between sites. Tybee Island has very close sites. some are extremely narrow, but you book at Tybee for location (on the island, walk to beach, enjoy the party life, etc). So the real answer is what is the perfect location for you depends on what you want. I have chosen different parks on different trips because I wanted/needed different things.

RE: We are newer than thee nwest newbie

My parents had a Class C of approximately the same size, after using it a few times, determined they did need to tow. They bought a Chevy Cobalt and a Blue Ox tow bar set up. It cost them about $3K for tow bar, toad brake and installation. (the Cobalt required the whole front cowling be removed and then replaced for installation). Towing the car was super simple. hooking up the tow bars and brakes took about 5 minutes, even for my 75+ year old mother. I drove the MH towing the car and would forget it was back there. Several times, I looked in the mirror and wondered why that little white car was dead on my butt, then would realize it was our Toad. it is a totaly different experience from towing a trailer. When I drive my truck and tow my TT, I NEVER forget it is back there. I took them on a two week trip that we used the toad a lot. It was nice having a small car to negotiate the narrow streets in historic Natchez. It was nice to have the car to negotiate the busy streets of downtown Baton Rouge (including being in town on a home game Sat for LSU). They also used the toad when they camped in parks that were a long ways from civilization. When they were overtaken by ants, it was great to have car to drive the 20+ miles to any type of store that had ant spray. It was nice not to have to stow everything in MH, disconnect and drive the MH to the store (that did not have a place that MH could have parked-- we would have had to park it on side of highway and hope it wasn't hit by logging trucks on the way to pulp plant)

RE: Roaming Rvers September Rally from the 9th to 11th, 2016

For those that I asked, I plan to be there. I have to work on Friday, but will probably bring trailer and stay Thursday night. There is a small lake and creek that surround two sides of park. there is a pier and small boat put in that works well for kayaks and canoes, so bring yours if you have one. Also a couple of rental companies, do rentals and creek trips with shuttles. Here is one company.. they even rent kayaks on an hourly basis at the park.
