RE: D.C. by motorhome

Personally...I would choose a place like Cherry Hill.. While some may think it's a little pricey, it's a safe place to leave your RV. Plus the fact that you will have a cool comfortable place to return to after seeing the sites in DC, since you will have it plugged in and AC on. Given the fact that you will also have cable tv at night (if you like that sort of thing) and a plce to dump your tanks. I would highly recommend taking public transportation into the city. Even if you park in the city, you will still be doing a heck of a lot of walking. Wear comfortable shoes!

RE: "Free" Trial

Personally, I'd like to know what Good Sam has done FOR him..he's received TWO replies from GS yet he continues to bash them. Why?:h:h..Dennis Have I continued to bash them after receiving two replies? Other than replying to one posting, I don't think I've added anything since I got the replies. I'm happy that someone from the company at least stated they will look into it. Don't worry about it...it may take us to beat a dead horse, but it takes an a$$ to beat us... ;)

RE: Other State Registration

wbwood - he wasn't going to use a NM address. He stated that the dealership told him they would use his ID address for the NM registration. I know, but as you stated they require two forms of NM residency... how are you going to do that without a NM residence (address)?

RE: Other State Registration

I still don't understand what address he was going to use in New Mexico to register the motorhome. As mentioned, you have to prove NM residency...with what? how? I know around here, a utility bill in your name to a local address is one proof.

RE: Awnings and rain

Our electric awning has a dump feature. Yuo just tighten the know on the end you don't want it to dump and the weight of the water will cause it dump on the other end. If yours is a manual awning, simply tilt it a little on one side. Yuo don't have to tilit it crazy like i've seen some.

RE: 32 ft class c a/c in the southern temps.

Most of our camping is done in the south (NC, SC, GA and FL). Our Class is C is 32' 7" long. It's a 31' model. Before that, we had a 31' TT (35' bumper to hitch). We never have had any issues with the single A/C. A good bit of that camping has been done during the summer at the beach without shade. Then again, we do not find ourself holed up in the RV all day long either. We get out and do things.

RE: Another Fishing Question! Tennessee & North Carolina

A lot of people fish Price Lake just a ways up the Blue Ridge Parkway from GrandFather. We like price lake. Never fished there, but took the kayaks out on it. http://i1080.photobucket.com/albums/j331/brianwood69/Julian%20Price%20Memorial%20Park/bb4128c288db71bfe93657264caee81b.jpg width=800 http://i1080.photobucket.com/albums/j331/brianwood69/Julian%20Price%20Memorial%20Park/b8f18b5ba5664e71e2086f872bef92a2.jpg width=800 http://i1080.photobucket.com/albums/j331/brianwood69/Julian%20Price%20Memorial%20Park/fc2d42be2401d9f0733bca76e611fa25.jpg width=800

RE: Camping World continues to junk mail me

I think the CW and GS have some many databases that they can't keep their******together. I have a Lifetime membership and roadside service until 2020, but whenever I would go into CW and pourchase something, I would always get hit with your membership is expired, is about to expire, your roadside warranty expired, etc....I would tell them, no and show them my cards that state my expiration dates (none on membership). They would argue wtih me and tell me that I needed to check because their computer said otherwise, no matter what my card says. CW/GS keeps just putting a bandaid on everything.

RE: "Free" Trial

Good Evening Keithhelms, I do apologize if you feel Good Sam was trying to be deceptive. I assure you that was never our intent. Our intent was to recognize your long standing membership and provide you with special trial access to one of our services. I understand that you did not have an opportunity to take advantage of our special offer. If you could send me a private message with your contact information we can discuss what possible options I have to make this right for you. Thank you...Rudy, Good Sam Response Team. I think Keithhelms is right and GS is being decpetive. Just as they tried to be with me at CW on my inspection. When are you guys (GS & CW) going to learn that your chosen words appear to be deceptive and lead to a deceptive course of action? Your words are not welcoming to GS members. GS members are not feeling appreciated. When you tell them they are late for paying for a bill on something they never asked for and when you tell someone in your stores that they need work done that doesn't need to be done. Why not tell your members something like was mentioned above about thank you for being a member. We hope you enjoyed the free trial we gave you back in January. If you would like to continue this service, then please feel free to take advantage of our special savings price to GS members....blah blah blah... And in your stores, rather than telling someone you have debris in your hot water heat er and it needs to be serviced (at 2 yrs old),....why not be truthful and say something like, we noticed there was dust, grass clippings and a wasp behind your hot water cover. We recommend that you clean it out and you might want to think about putting a bug screen over the vent to prevent wasps and other bugs from going in there. By the way, we sell them and they are on aisle. We also recommend having your hot water heater unit serviced every x amount of years. The service inccludes us doing this, this and this. No...you would rather just say dirt and debris in hot water heater. Needs service. Then you want to do it on a refrigerator. The AC (dirty air filter). etc....

RE: NC / SC beaches

Going to Willow Tree (North Myrtle) and going to stay on their spring feed lake with the man made white sandy beach and watch the kiddos playing on the inflatables. No sharks there. :D Are there alligators there? :) Wouldn't doubt it. They are every where along the coast of SC, and Southern NC. Yep a good bit of alligators. I heard someone mentioned even seeing them on the beach in MB before.

RE: Other State Registration

Whether you call it avoidance or evasion, I don't think it really matters. If you don't agree with the taxes your state collects, then move to a place with lower taxes or no taxes at all. You are living where you are for a reason. Obviously you like it. I know one thing, if you "avoid" paying your home state the taxes on something you bought in another state, then don't be surprised when you receive a tax bill from your home state. I know on the NC state tax paperwork that we file every year, there is a question where it asks if you bought anything out of state. States are really cracking down on getting what is theirs. What the OP mentioned is shady in my book.

RE: Leveling side to side method from seasoned campers

The Andersons look great and get rave reviews form the members on this forum. I picked up 2 sets of Lynx leveler blocks from Wang Mart about 10 years ago and they work fine. They did not make the Andersons at that time. I started out with the wooden planks but got away from them due to the weight and limited space in the bed of my truck. The wood planks are fine if you've got the room. One bit of advice I can give is if you go with the Lynx Levelers, get 2 sets. 1 set of 10 can get used up very fast on uneven ground and they work great for the stabilizers too in soft sand/dirt. We have 3 sets of lynx levelers and have used all of them. That's my breaking point. Need to go any higher, then I'm moving or leaving. http://i1080.photobucket.com/albums/j331/brianwood69/dbb519b4-5c5d-4a34-a614-968219a56dd0.jpg width=800

RE: NC / SC beaches

I read that because of the drought that there is not the same amount of fresh water going into the ocean. The slat levels are higher attracting them. They also said that due to the warmer water, they are up further north earlier than normally. They say in the Carolina's that there are about 6 bites a year, but this year, we are already up to 10.

RE: Other State Registration

So you are going to save what $2000 in sales tax? How much will the tax attorney and penalties cost you?

RE: Ordered new class C 28ft, campsite length issues???

Our is listed as a 31' model but it's actuall 32'7". We always say 33'......but if staying in the type of parks you mentioned, we will look at pictures of the sites and make sure there is nothing being the pasd or stops that will prevent the motorhome from backing up. You also need to look at the height of the stops or curb. In the below picture is our motorhome at a park on the B,lue ridge parkway. As you can see it is extending over the curb. WE might of fit in the spacewithout going over the curb, but we would of been right at the narrow road and did not want that. Use the internet and it's pictures. It's almost a necessity. http://i1080.photobucket.com/albums/j331/brianwood69/Julian%20Price%20Memorial%20Park/373551d705ef2e590d584fc79a795511.jpg width=800 Just checked and the Reserve America listed this site (E12 - Julian Price park) as having a 24' maximum vehicle size. Just for reference. As I mentioned. Our rig is about 33' long.

RE: Watch out for cost of Michigan State Parks

Spend tens of thousands of $ on an RV, TV and supplies. Complaining on the internet about $5 - $10 extra a night for an out-of-state charge = priceless Has nothing to do with how much you spend on your rig, if one is comparing apples to apples (parks to parks), then it is a legitimate complaint. Of course, no one is forcing it upon them. But they have every right to sound off about it. And what is sounding off about it on this forum going to do? Seems like their time would be better spent contacting MI State Parks. Aside from all that... if they have a right to sound off about it, then I have a right to sound off about their sound off? :) The simple solution is to not spend money on something you don't agree with and move on with your life. I think that is what they are doing. They are just venting and letting others know about the ridiculous price of a state park without apparently very much on the hookups and tight spaces (although I've never seen it). I know that people tend to go to state parks for one of the following reasons (and sometimes more than one reason). - More natural setting - Larger and more private sites - Low cost I guess more people that like it there are opting for just the first reason and not the others.
