RE: Beach campsite

I recommend Myrtle Beach also. Our favorite is Ocean Lakes. There are the big three there: Ocean Lakes, Lakewood and Pirateland. In our opinion, Ocean Lakes is nicer and has nicer/better amenities than the others. Here's a playlist of our Myrtle Beach videos...

RE: Winterized, but still want to use

We run the antifreeze through the lines. That way we don't bother with blowing the lines out and hope to get all the water out. Matter of fact, our local Camping World will not winterize the RV's here without running antifreeze through the lines. They say they can not guarantee them unless the antifreeze is through the lines. The antifreeze is non toxic and after you run water through the lines, you can't tell it's been there. But we do not drink the water from the RV either. Over the winter, we will take the RV out once or twice camping. What we normally do is keep the RV winterized and just don't use the inside plumbing. We make sure we go to a campground/RV park with decent bath houses and park not too far from them if we can. Then we just use the bath house as if we were tent camping. If we gotta go or need to take a shower, just go to the bath house. That way, we do not have to worry about dumping anything. It makes camping about half as easy as when we hook up water and a sewage hose. Depending on location, we may go out to eat for dinner or lunch. Any food that is prepared at the RV is done normally. We just make sure not to put any water down the drain (we bring water with us in jugs). We heat the water on the stove to wash the pot/dishes (if needed) and wash them in rubbermaid tubs. We then pour the water down the outside sewer trap. Some places may have specific rules about dumping dish water if you don't have a sewer connection at your site. You can plan your meals to make them easier to have to avoid washing things. If on hook ups, we will use an electric heater inside. Saves on propane.It can be done and just takes some small sacrifices. But I would rather sacrifice a little to be able to continue using our RV during the winter. We got about 9-10" of snow last night. This coming friday, we are heading south for the long weekend to Hilton Head Island Motorcoach Resort. It will be in the mid 70's there and low in the high 50's. I will dewinterize for that trip and rewinterize when we leave. But it will only take a few minutes to do so. I will already be dumping the tanks. Just need run the lines dry and antifreeze through them. Then we are good to go. We may get another trip in during the month of march, but we have a week long tri planned to florida in April...can't wait!

RE: Dump sites at Camping World

Camping World are in cities. You should be out there camping! There ia a list for dump stations throughout the country. Can only camp until you gotta dump....lol And not all CW's are in cities (or at least what I call cities). Maybe towns. But around here, for the most part, there are not a lot of optional dump stations that aren't at campgrounds/rv parks...

RE: Typical Class C GAS mileage

In the southeast (hills/mountains/flat), we average around 8mpg with our 32' class c. But I drive the speed limit. If it's 70mph, i'm usually right there. I might get a little better with letting my foot off the bas pedal, but we are usually under some sort of time constraints.

RE: Price match?

We were buying an inflatable kayak and paddle board from Sea Eagle. Went to Amazon, Walmart and etc online to compare prices. The paddleboard was not any cheaper than what Sea Eagle was selling it for. The kayak was about $80 cheaper from buyng it online at Walmart with free shipping. Amazon wasn't any cheaper than Sea Eagle. I called Sea Eagle to see if they could match the price of the kayak with Walmart since I was buying a paddleboard as well. They wouldn't. So I bought it from Walmart. Not everything can or will be price matched. As mentioned, buying power and contracts come into play sometimes.

RE: Back to Destin, Florida

Well we just added a couple more nights to our trip to Destin. We will be checking out Manatee Springs State Park (Florida) for a couple nights on our way to the Destin area... Come on Spring, hurry up and get here!

RE: Fresh water

The technical support said it would pull from the tank if the pump was on! I will pay more attention to what is happening pretty sure we did not have the pump on, but I will also have gauge for checking park water pressure before I hook up! Thank you all for the responses I think that is what we told you...

RE: Dump sites at Camping World

Check each locations website. It should tell you. Luckly I have a CW about 10 minutes from my house. I use it once a year after labor day camping with some friends on their property. Roll in about mid morning on Tuesday. Throw 'em 5 bucks and I can take all the time i need to do a nice through rinse. If your looking for other places, I know a lot of Pilot/Flying J's have dump stations as well. Sign up for one of those key chain membership club thingys and you'' save a few bucks per use. Your CW charges you?

RE: Generators

Now, we're looking for a generator. (We had borrowed a Honda 2000 for our big trip. They're great, but expensive) We see Harbor Freight has an inexpensive generator but I read where people had bad experiences with them. Walmart has a "Sportsman" for a little more dough. Anyone used one of these? Why abuse yourselves? ... if you consider the price of a Honda EU2000i excessive then consider a Champion 2000 watt inverter genset ... Supergen even sells refurbished ones for $369! :B Agree on the champion 2000i.... great genny for half the price (or less) of a honda...

RE: Fresh water

Look for a Holiday Rambler forum or facebook group. More than likely to find those with similar rv's that may have same issues and solutions.

RE: Fresh water

Thank you for the replies we continued to run on the tank last night. Could it be because the city water was to low of pressure? You would get some sort of water coming out even with lower pressure. I recommend calling Holiday Rambler and have them walk you through it all over the phone. Or take it back to the dealer for them to check.

RE: Changing out TV

If you have directv at home you can use their app to stream whatever you might have recorded on your home DVR as well as on-demand tv. If you have an ATT account there is no data charge since ATT owns Directv. You can also download from your DVR to your phone, pad or other device to watch offline. Then just get an adapter to play from the device to an HDMI port on the TV. We do not pay for any tv. We are strictly internet based.

RE: Fresh water

Pump was on the first nite, not on now pressure is ok. If the pump switch is on will the pump continue to run or shut off when not running water? Pump will only run when there is a demand for water, i.e. you turn on a faucet. It could also continuously run if there is a leak.

RE: Fresh water

It is a Holiday Rambler Vesta, did not have the pump on. First night out we were self contained all seemed good, second night connected to city water all seemed good, last night had no pressure in shower saw that tank was empty. I thought once connected that the pressure would have us using city water. I took the regulator off the hose seems ok but not sure if we are on city or fresh tank If self contained, then you had to have the pump on to draw water from fresh water tank. If on city water and pump is not on, then you should not be drawing from the freshwater tank. I think your pump is on and you are completely pulling from the freshwater tank.

RE: Panel access ideas

Yeah, but the original design was wrong and an owner will probably suffer the similar wood degeneration problem again. Wrong? We're talking about a simple piece of paneling that's removed perhaps once in the spring and again once in the fall ... a couple of screws works just fine, no need for anything more complicated or costly. As you say, just my take on it. :W No...it's removed several times a winter season. We use it periodically in the winter. Not as much as spring, summer and fall. But every time I winterize/dewinterize, it's removed and placed back twice. So during a winter, it could be removed and placed back easily 10 times.

RE: Kayak storage?

The Sea Eagle kayaks are rated up to Class 3....Like Second Chance, we mostly stick to flat water. Plus our kayaks don't see a lot of use. Never took them out in 2016.

RE: Changing out TV

Thanks...yeah I haven't felt the need for an inverter, yet. Like I said, if we are not on hookups, we rarely will watch a tv. We don't watch tv at home. We watch everything on Netflix, Prime or Youtube. With Netflix and Prime, they allow you to download some of the movies and shows so you aren't using bandwidth. We can do that on our phones, ipads, or laptops.
