RE: New to Dingy Towing - Need help?

ACME tow dolly... $1299 with surge brakes. Lightest tow dolly out here. Can be stored in upright position. Can back up your rv over about 2/3rds of it on a back in spot. Yes you will have to unhook it and push it back, but it's not bad to do. Don't have to worry about if I change cars and having to get another base plate, lights and etc hooked up on the new car. Lights are sufficient on tow dolly.

RE: How to clean Coleman Roadtrip grill burners

Dishwasher? I don't own a gas grill, never will, but wouldn't the dishwasher work? I mean the burners aren't that big are they? Surely if you will never have a gas grill, then you will never have a dishwasher! lol

I have had problems with my Jayco, first year while towing noticed front face of trailer starting to delaminate, when I returned home from the trip found a seam had popped opened on the roof. ended having the whole front face of the trailer replaced. The only good news it was covered on the 2 year warrant. This all said, after every camping trip I'm finding seams that look like there starting to fail where I have to re caulk. :( I think a lot of this delamination comes from todays manufacturing practices including the use of the new environmentally safe caulks and glues. MikeI think the fiberglass RV's look nice but I like my aluminum model. They Seem to hold up well The only thing is that you can't see any issues with the aluminum siding unless it's obvious damage to the aluminum. A lot of damage can happen between the aluminum and the inside and never shows signs of it until the mold. They both have their merits and issues.

RE: Raleigh NC campgrounds

Hands down the Fairgrounds is the best place to stay. Full hookups with 50 amps for $25 per night. Security patrols 24/7. The only thing is you can't stay there during the month of October as they close the fairgrounds to the public due to the State Fair. It looks like on their site that the cost goes up to $30 during the month of October. Doesn't say you can't use it. From the pics on their site, that is a really nice fairground camping area...not just a field like most others. I did not that in their rules that "public nudity or bathing" is allowed...guess it had become a problem...lol

RE: Florida RV Park/State Park on the Ocean

Has anyone stayed at Camp Gulf. We looked at it while staying at At Top Sail St. Park. It looked really cramped and difficult to Maneuver a 34 ft 5'er. I would like all feed back good or bad. Haven't stayed there...but I agree with your presumption.... I don't think it's worth the price just to be closer to the beach. Or in the congestion down that way. Don't get me wrong, we like resorts and we like our amenities... But to pay 2-3 times as much per day just to be a little closer...nah

RE: towing behind a class c

In a earlier reply I believe the weight of a Camry was overstated, by about 1000 lbs. Be sure to determine the weight of your car. I've never towed a car, but I've seem tow dollies taking up space at a campground, I'd rather tow four down. That number does seem a bit high for a camry....that's in the ballpark of our Ford Explorer. As far as tow dollies taking up space....not all tow dollies are made the same. We are able to back up over about 2/3rds of our ACME. Also, it can be stored in the upright position. Although I wouldn't do that more than likely at a campground. I know I sound like a broken record folks. But give the ACME a serious look. It's lighter. Comes with surge brakes. Sits lower. Stores upright. And pretty much costs less. www.cartowdolly.com. They are made in Kernersville, NC (outside Greensboro). You can pick up directly from them and they will even go over the whole thing with you. Or you can have it shipped.

RE: How to clean Coleman Roadtrip grill burners

Weber user here, but what I do is wire brush it first, which can plug some holes. Then I clean the holes out with a small needle. Pressure washer would work too just fire the grill up afterwords to boil off the water that will get inside. Have both the Coleman Roadtrip and Weber Q. Both have the same problem. I use a wire brush to scrape off any excess and then get a needle and go through every hole.

RE: Insurance - Collision on a towable?

Pay for the extra insurance on your trailer. You will feel better about it. We had full coverage on a $30,000 TT for a few hundred dollars a year. Worth it IMHO.

The DW and I have been riding the golfcart around ocean lakes cg and the number of RV's with delam is crazy. I think alot of them are stored here and not taken care. So much money just wasted due to lack of maintenance. The problem you are seeing are those that purchase the RV's and store them there and leave them. They don't pay attention to it. They don't have the proper maintenance completed which is a shame. Ocean Lakes has an RV service department. They will go get your RV out of storage and provide maintenance on it. People just forget about it. Out of site, out of mind. Then when they arrive on the site and see their RV their with some issues, they are there to have fun, not have it worked on. One of the things we got (I thought was a waste) when we got our Class C last year from CW was an Elite membership. With the membership they will do a free inspection every year for those 3 years. I was having some things done earlier this year to the motorhome and told them to do the inspection. Glad they did. They found a very small hole in the roof and sealed it. They also check out the other seals. I will continue to have this done, even when I have to pay for it. While I can check it myself, it never hurts for someone else to do it as well as a precautionary. Half of owning an RV is maintenance and its gonna cost. Just do it when you are not using it.

RE: Camping world thief

Too many arm chair lawyers here! And too many crime show watchers ....lol

RE: Camping world thief

I sure would hold them responsible. it was on their lot and in their possession. it is their dollar to replace your items. period. Nope...they have a policy as do most other lots (RV's and cars) that they are not responsible.... If you don't take your valuables with you, then you are responsible. Insurance is all I can say. Police investigation? Good luck. Depends on where you are at. I know in Charlotte they won't even come out anymore. File it online or on the phone. If you have serial numbers of your camera equipment, it can be registered in the NCIC database as stolen and pawn shops will be notified of these. Otherwise, good luck with your insurance.

RE: Insurance Quote

I am trying to get an insurance quote on a 80,000 MH. I am not getting any luck with anyone returning my call. Anyone have an estimate per month what insurance cost is? Who are you calling that's not answering the phone? Try the Good Sam insurance....and do not just ask them for a quote as they will automatically quote you through National General. Ask to be quoted through various. We have a MH in the same price range as yours and pay about $500 through Allied (went through Good Sam). They initially quoted us over $900 for National General. Someone should answer the phone there. You may need to hold for an available salesperson.

RE: TT Newbie - Need Help

Have the dealership deliver it to the destination 250 miles away for you. When we purchased our TT back in 2010, we didn't even have a truck. They delivered to a campground at the beach 4 hrs away.

RE: towing behind a class c

Also with the acme and it's surge brakes, no brake controller needed.

RE: towing behind a class c

Some misinformation on here. Someone mentioned 600lbs for tow dolly. Ours is only 405lbs. ACME tow dolly. Price for our tow dolly brand new is only $1299 and includes surge brakes. The numbers for set up for 4 down is pretty accurate from what we've seen. Over $2000. Friend was quoted over $2500 for his liberty. Remember that if you do 4 down and have a base plate installed, it's only for that car. If you change cars in a couple years, new base plate, plus install, lights, etc.

RE: why a class c over a class a ?

Sits lower to ground. Class c's generally not as tall. Never driven class a, but coworker said it was easier for him to drive.

RE: Crock Pot while Boondocking?

I wouldn't think it would be a great idea while boondocking unless you are running a genny or have a great solar/battery bank. Meals in crock pots generally take time. If your out in the boonies, get a dutch oven.. Make the best out of why you are in the boonies...

RE: Where are all the RV washes?

I plan to wash the RV myself and don't want the expense of having someone do it for me. Looks like there are no truck washes in my area. I'm wondering if opening a self service car wash with 16ft tall bays near the interstate would attract RVers? Trucks, RVs and cars could all use the wash. Is this a needed business? Any thoughts? For around $40 at Blue Beacon, I think that's a very good price. We pay half of that at the local auto spa just for our cars. But if you are not wanting to pay someone else to do it, then why would you think someone else would want to pay you to use your bay? I googled "rv wash bay Denver" and came up with several options on the first page.
