RE: Acme Tow Dolly Lights

Nope... have towed our ACME tow dolly about 1500 miles so far and no issues. But I picked mine up directly from ACME. They had it put together when I got there.

RE: Holding Tanks Size, what to look for?

If the setup of the unit with the bigger tanks is ok with you, go with it...I mean if there were two identical side by side and the only difference was the tank size, I would go with the bigger tanks. It's the only thing we are missing on our Class C. Our TT had a gray tank twice the size....your style may change later...better to have more than you need. It doesn't mean you have to use it..

RE: Took the plunge, got a good used hybrid

Looks good from here and a great price...you have people trying to charge that much for older pop ups.

RE: Rv ownership in the land of HOA's

Our rate in the Los Angeles area is $200 to $350 for a 35 to 45ft long space. That's redicilous...That's more than what people pay monthly on their note for it...

RE: Can you winterize a Keurig coffee maker?

That's why I use one of the these. Won't break. Don't need any electricty. Don't have to worry about winterizing (lol)Just the ability to boil some water. i.e. stove or fire.

RE: Have you ever heard of paying for pre-delivery inspection??

Thing is, it does not matter what they call the charges, add ons or otherwise, it is the bottom line that you want to see. If you are satisfied with the bottom line, out the door price, then you are good to go. If not, then more negotiations are necessary. Don't get hung up on what they call the charges. x1000000! Who cares what the charges are. The important thing is the bottom line price you will pay out the door.

RE: Western North Carolina - Suggestions?

Be aware that the Blue Ridge Parkway has a good number of tunnels, some with rather low clearances. The lowest tunel clearances are in the northern part of the parkway in Virginia. They will bypassing that part according to their discription. And all have maximum clearances of at least 18' or more. Might need to tow the centerline, but doable...

RE: Harbor Freight 500lb. cargo carrier for a spare tire?

Just noticed that Harbor Freight has its 500lb. aluminum cargo carrier on sale at $69.99. The posted reviews were very favorable. I guess you can use their 20% off coupon, too, further reducing it to $56 or so. My question is - Has anyone used this carrier to haul a spare tire? If so, did it work well for you? Thinking about our 3rd Alaska trip and would like to carry an unmounted 16" spare tire. Thanks much I have one and I like it. it was $79 and assembled in 10 minutes. I use it to carry a 60 gallon storage box on it with cast iron cookware extra fuel, wood etc. used it over a year, no issues. I will say though that you will need to find a way to keep it from wobbling a bit. I have a unopened one in the shed, pm me if interested. quiet hitch

RE: Thor Super C (Chateau/Four Winds) improvements and mods

We have a 2013 Thor Chateau. Not a super C, but a chateau none the less. We also had an issue with the on board water pump. We rarely use it, but when dry camping, I noticed it would burp in the middle of the night. I never shut it off because my bedroom is in the back and I didn't want to walk all the way to the front in the middle of the night to turn it on if we needed to use the potty. I noticed it during the warranty period and had them check it out. The problem was not with the pump, the on board water tank and a very small drip/leak at the low point drain. The low point drain sits on the side of the camper and we never noticed a leak. That shows how slow it was. But they narrowed it down to that. Thor was great about it. They replaced the lop point drain and the water pump for good measure. The tech at Camping World went the extra mile and mounted it some cushioning to deaden the sound of the pump. Before, you could hear it. Now, just barely. The only other issue we've had was sliide brakes that were replaced as the slide would release a little bit after it sat for a while when closed up. Not enough for it to leak, but enough that if you push the retract button, that it would move a little. And the drawer slides. I will say that they did a crappy job with the drawer slides. They only put one screw in each plastic piece that holds the slide up.

RE: Bahia Honda April 4th-10th (ish)

Check a couple times a day. We found a site at TY park near Ft Lauderdale for the last week of Feb in early Dec. It came open between checking at 7 am and 1 pm when I booked it. Funny you mention that...we are going down in July. There were no spaces for Bahia Honda and went with Curry Hammock. After reading this last night, I went bakc on and there was one 2 spot for 2 nights in conjunction with ouir Curry Hammock stay. I jumped on it...hehe

RE: April Florida Gulf coast trip

Here's a link I found, not complete and not all education levels are listed, but does give you some idea. Spring Break Link Those are colleges...not elementary/middle/high school, when families normally travel. It usually around Easter time. This year its early in April. Last year it was late. And it's not just Florida families there, it includes those from farther away....like us in NC. We met a family from Chicago last year there for spring break...

RE: April Florida Gulf coast trip

I just searched at Topsail starting on Sunday, April 19th (two weeks after spring break). Putting in a 2 night stay yielded 9 openings. 3 night stay 6 openings. And a 4 night stay 2 openings. That's still 3 months away...

RE: Western North Carolina - Suggestions?

Julian Price Park on the BRP near Blowing Rock/Boone is a great little park. No hookups, but we like it...then on down to Linville Falls, that park is even nicer.

RE: Timing tank limits

On another note, there's a point to being frugal with water consumption. But when you start to go extremely frugal, especially with hygiene, then it becomes not so fun in the long run....

RE: Timing tank limits

There's a lot of variables. How often are you going to shower and do dishes? How big are the tanks? Do you take "Navy Showers"? How good are you at conserving water? I camp alone, shower daily and try to keep water usage down and I empty my tanks about once a week. When I camped with my wife, we had to dump the tanks every other day. Agree with this whole heartedly.....When we had our TT, it had a much larger gray tank than our Class C. 3 of us not trying to be frugal with consumption (3 showers a day and some light dish washing), we would need to dump at least every other day. With the Class C and tank about 2/3rd the size of the one in the TT, we can now go about twice as long, but we learned to be more frugal with the water. Changed the shower head out...turn on water and get wet. Turn off and lather up. Turn on water and rinse. Done. WE could probably be more frugal and get another day out of it, but we haven't needed to. If you have a bath house available that you are willing to use, then that will help a lot. Especially with kids. Then you can take long hot showers if you want. On another note, don't think all Class A's or Class C's will have the same size tanks. There are Class C's that are smaller than ours ,but have bigger tanks. Class A's generally will probably have larger tanks than a Class C.

RE: Rv ownership in the land of HOA's

Our local self storage place has fenced, uncovered storage. But I have no idea what it costs as I park mine in my driveway next to my house. Many campgrounds store RV's, if you can find one out away from the city, it may be a little cheaper. We used to store the 31' TT we had here in the Mooresville, NC area at a self storage type of place. It was fenced in, no assigned spots and on gravel/dirt. Got real muddy when it rained. It cost us I believe $40/month. Other places that were paved, were nearly twice as much. We did park it at our home for a while as we do not have HOA. But we live on a slope and could only park in the side yard towards he back. If it rained, we could not get it out. Often when it was dry, I would have to put the truck in 4 wheel drive to pull it out. That got old and so we put it in the storage lot. The motorhome we can park in the driveway. It's still on a slope, but has brakes to keep it from going anywhere.
