RE: Awning leg repair?

not sure what you have going on, but when I began to have that problem, it was actually an indication of some water intrusion. screws were wicking water into wood behind the aluminum. I did something similar to the bear and F1bNorm and put a strip of wood on the underside and then bolts. provided the strength needed to hold arms steady.

RE: Oh Lord Stuck in Old Lodi....

I am glad things worked out so well for OP. and mostly that you found dealers who were willing to do everything to keep you happy. I have found much less caring dealers in my experience. I have received poor warranty service with both a Ford dealer and a Dodge dealer in the past. Current Ford dealer is just okay, but better than they were before being bought out. Current servicing dealer is the only one who has ever put me in a different vehicle and that was a used vehicle of another brand that smelled like cigarette smoke. Again, so glad things are working out so well for OP.

RE: Have you found a greener alternative to wipes?

I bought a package of "bar towels" in WalMart or somewhere similar. White terry cloth and great for wiping/cleaning... and wash when needed. I also can bleach them when they get too grungy looking or I have done especially nasty cleaning. cheap enough that if I really think they are too nasty, I don't mind trashing.

RE: Easter Dinner

I have a large electric roaster. I have used it to cook a ham. last year for Easter, just did chicken on the grill, then fresh green beans cooked quickly in wok. also have done cold ham, cooked ahead in oven at home.

RE: Roaming RVers 27-29 March 2015 Chehaw Park Albany GA

Just left a vmail at the Park office hopefully will get a call back. Kim and I can come if there is still a vacancy- BUT will get there EARLY Saturday morning in time for breakfast. We'll be able to bring Biscuits and gravy (since we'll be on the road) I guess for dinner its a BYOM(bring your own meat:) )and sides to share? Keep your fingers crossed we hear back from the park. Did you get a call back? I think there is still room. If you don't hear from them send me a PM with your phone number and I will stop by and then can call around lunch time/early afternoon.

RE: Floor sleeping accomodations

my son prefers his tent over staying in the trailer. during Christmas, made a long trip to daughters, my son did both overnights en route in a tent. it was fairly cold and rainy, but he still preferred sleeping there. said he didn't hear my snoring and wasn't bothered by my getting up during the night. He used small tent, his thermorest and sleeping bag.

RE: Sideswiped fence and bent awning arm back

when mine got bent, I used a couple of dozen zip ties to hold mine shut, as I was about a hundred miles from home and any type service. I actually had to take very bottom section off, as it was bent too bad to allow the rest of arm to close completely. That was also the weekend that I determined that the awning was misnamed.. it certainly wasn't carefree.. especially as I travel by myself and am only slightly over 5ft tall trying to manage a 16 ft awning. I converted to a crank out and love it now.. much more carefree.. or at very least, much much easier to use.

RE: If I won the mega-millions lottery I would...

1) Go ahead and retire a few years earlier 2) order the Class A I want -- 35-36 ft with a few extra options beyond the one I plan to buy in 3-4 years. 3) buy my DD a nice class B to make traveling with DGD to visit easier 4) buy my DS a class B (if he is interested) and help him finish training to be a river guide/aquatics guy all the time. 5) help my brother and sister in law with a cabin on family farm 6) travel using family farm as home base, just as I am planning in a few years. this would allow me freedom to not need to host to manage campground fees, but I still probably would volunteer, because it is just part of who I am. 7) by not waiting to travel, I could take my mom with me now... not sure she will be up to it, when I can finally get away. I hope to take her to see some of the things she and my dad didn't get to see before his health got too bad

RE: Roaming RVers 27-29 March 2015 Chehaw Park Albany GA

Actually LEP isan't coming in until Friday. My friend might joins us. And yes there is a Cracker Barrel in town. I will probably be getting there about 5:30 or 6:00, but I am perfectly okay with dropping trailer and leaving for dinner. then set up later.

RE: Greetings from a New Class A owner!

OP, I am going to pipe in again and recommend you go to the State Fair Rv park for a couple of days. Jordan Lake is really nice, but you will NOT have sewer in your site. I would strongly suggest you go to a site with full hookups while you learn to dump and how long you can go on your holding tanks. You likely will not be able to go a week without dumping, and unless you have "tote" you will have to unhook and go dump at least once. By staying where you have sewer connection, you can dump several times and rinse out if you need to without anyone waiting in line behind you. I will say having a line behind you waiting to dump can be intimidating when you are new. The state fair RV park is perfectly safe and patrolled regularly. I stayed there for the week of Christmas, just myself and my 78 year old mother and I never felt unsafe.

RE: Roaming RVers 27-29 March 2015 Chehaw Park Albany GA

actually LEP will be there with some guests.. you didn't miss post. He PM'ed since he was having troubles getting through to make reservation. I also will have a guest, who is renting an aliner and interested in learning about RVing

RE: Greetings from a New Class A owner!

Christina, if you want to go hook up and test everything out, the State Fairgrounds there in Raleigh has a really nice campground for setting up and connecting practice.. there really isn't anything to do in the campground, but it is level, full connections and super easy to maneuver into sites. it might be worth the $25 a night to go there for a night or two if your home doesn't have a good place to set up. (I know my DD in Holly Springs doesn't have room and driveway is really not level.) I also know there are a couple of state parks not too far out that would be good next step places to go. Now you just have to visit different types campgrounds/rv parks/rv resorts and determine which is your type. don't let the names confuse you.. generally the names mean nothing.. some are rustic and provide basic hookups, some are more like state fair site, provide connections but nothing much else, and some provide everything you could want -- playgrounds, pools, scheduled actitivites for adults and for kids, dog parks... I have even seen one with pond and obstacle type course for dogs.. Me, it depends on what I am in the area for.. if just a get away, I prefer state parks.. when I visit my DD in Holly Springs, I like the state fair rv park.. just a place to park and sleep.. and somehow I can envision, as my DGD gets a little bigger, taking her places with activities.

RE: Tough job testing RV's

I haven't seen a review stating that you had to scoot on your back to hook up sewer (yet), but I did find the one for a MH I am interested in quite enlightening. Reviewer commented that GPS screen and radio were almost impossible for driver to reach/view easily. As a single RVer, that was something I hadn't really thought about, but will pay attention as I search for a MH. Also the reviewer mentioned the drop down bed had to be lowered to get into cabinets over dash. Another "ah ha" moment for this newbie to Class A's.

RE: St. Andrews SP - N Florida area - My impressions

dutchmen sport, where did you stay at St Joe? which campground section? I have stayed in the more wooded campground, but only with a tent or a small Aliner. I want to go back, but from what I remember it was hard to get through trees to make the loop to the few sites a larger trailer would fit it.

RE: propane regulator

I always want an auto changeover. My previous TT did not originally have one, but after a cold Thanksgiving and having to go outside at 2 am to change the valve, I made sure I changed it. This TT didn't have electronic ignition for water heater, so besides going out to change the propane valve, I had to go outside and light pilot on water heater before I could shower that morning. Below freezing and lighting pilot made a believer out of me.

RE: Roaming RVers 27-29 March 2015 Chehaw Park Albany GA

Chock, don't know how good their wifi is, but you are welcome to use mine... I am only about a mile down the road.. or there are a number of fast food places, zaxby's, wendy's, etc about a mile or two in the other direction.. plus there is a really great locally owned coffee/sandwich shop just about 2-3 miles away. Lots of options, I will help you work something out. Luis, send me a PM with your full name, and I will go by there tomorrow afternoon. I drive by on the way home, so will reserve for you. do you want water/elec only or full hook up? Sadly they have one person who works part of the time who is less than helpful. She isn't really rude, just much less willing to go out of her way to do anything extra. The rest of the people at the park are really willing to do most anything. I will say they may have been very busy this weekend, marathon and big festival downtown brings in lots of visitors.

RE: Office Chair?

the last couple I bought for use at home came in a box un-assembled. so just go to any of the big box stores or the office supply chains, find the one you like and take it home in a box. If box won't fit through door, then open and take it in piece at a time. assemble inside. I have done this for several storage cabinets. I have bought and carried them in piece at a time, as the box was too heavy for me.
