RE: New here...campgrounds that do not allow campfires

No "wood burning" fires at Tanglewood RV park in Clemons NC (near Winston-Salem).

RE: New here...campgrounds that do not allow campfires

I believe Ocean Lakes in Myrtle Beach does not allow campfires nor do Myrtle Beach Travel park. You may get some better answers if you tell us what part of the US you want to camp in. after all it's more than 2 thousand miles across.. You can at ocean lakes.

RE: Leveling Clarification

I often find that I need raise only one corner, meaning one or three blocks for a front corner, two or six for a rear. I think the first block is 1 1/2 inches, one inch gain for each additional later. Most of the time I get where I want to be with 3/4" plywood, no blocks. For our driveway, we will need them for all four tires. Now that I know each one is about an inch tall, I just need to go out and measure to see how many we will need. For long term parking, I would go with wood blocks...

RE: Leveling Clarification

Nekkidfish...we have a class c as well and the Lynx levelers.. we have 3 sets of them and sometimes its not enough to be perfectly level...if it's a short trip, then close enough is good....if a week long, we will want it pretty close to perfect. All 3 sets on the front at Fancy Gap, VA http://i1080.photobucket.com/albums/j331/brianwood69/dbb519b4-5c5d-4a34-a614-968219a56dd0.jpg

RE: Electric question

I had a Jamboree and the plug was there if you got a generator. There was no transfer switch, you just plugged your cord in to the genny there. They called it prewired for a generator. That's how my friends 2014 winnie Class C is also....

RE: When to Dump??

This has been beat to death, but here I go anyway.... I know it's recommended to dump ONLY when the Black Tank is full. However, we do so little camping during the school year and it's only me or me/son a weekend here and there, it might literally be 4 MONTHS before the tank gets full. I do be sure we use plenty of water. If you are going periodically (not very often), then I would do as others stated...fill the tank up with water and dump. While you might think you are ok and will be camping again soon, things change...trips get canceled. We dump before going home, no matter when the next trip is. If we are going to another campground, then no, move on and dump when necessary or before heading home.

RE: Doing the math ....

At the end of the day, we felt we got a great deal and I know we will enjoy the hell out of it. I've been with my father when he has bought many cars....he was a tough negotiator. Would not hesitate to walk away. I followed the same suit. My wife hated going with me...We would got to 10 dealerships and walk out of 9 of them with nothing...hours spent back and forth....then one day, several years ago...my father and I were talking about buying cars. I couldn't believe my ears. He said that a good deal is when the buyer and seller are happy. What!? After all that time of headaches and trying to get the lowest price possible, he softens up and gives the best advice ever? Well now it's my motto. The worse thing to do is to ask what others pay for their units or to listen to what others say they paid for it. It's like finding out that a coworker makes more money than you. Enjoy what you did, what you have and never look back and second guess.

RE: pet fees?

On the other hand, I don't care too much for those who bring numerous dogs and set up fences and etc outside. those fences are a joke if your dog doesn't way more than, say, 8 lbs :) :) at a cg they had 2 big labs in a knee high gold fencing around their concrete site area. Dogs towered over it :B Obviously these were good dogs, but it ONLY TAKES one instant when that muttley decides to not be a good dog and over/thru that little baby barrier it goes. Mst of the time, it is the little yappers that way 8lbs or less and they are usually the noisiest.

RE: pet fees?

Being a pet owner, I view this in different ways. First of all, I don't mind a pet fee, but the park needs to be priced otherwise to meet the amenities. Just like when the State of Virginia was charging $5/pet and their fees for a start park already was higher than other states. Plus you could get a site elsewhere at a private opark with more amenities for the same price or less. On the other hand, I don't care too much for those who bring numerous dogs and set up fences and etc outside. It would be different if they didn't yap all day long or everytime they see another dog or a person walks by. But thats just my opinion.

RE: RV antifreeze in BW tank

Bumpy. It was meant to say they stand behind it 100%. I was going to have them do it where they just blow out the lines and put antifreeze in the traps. But hey had stopped doing it that way. They still blow out the lines, but they also run antifreeze through the lines. They said they can only guarantee it that way.

RE: RV antifreeze in BW tank

For your black tank. Remember water expands when it freezes. So ask yourself. Will 5 gal in a 40 gal tank expand enough to fill over fill the tank with ice? Answer. NO. so flush is as normal, and leave the 5 gal in it to prevent the dreaded black tank dry syndrome. And don't worry any more about it. I have always left 5 gal in the black tank. No problems. There is plenty of room for expansion. Was told the same thing by our dealer who winterized ours last year. They stand behind winterizing it 100%.

RE: Winston-Salem, North Carolina campgrounds?

Just returned from our 2nd trip to Tanglewood. If you are in a trailer with a jack that can level you front to rear, then you should be ok, alothugh there are some sites that really slope front to back. You will have to level side to side no matter what. If you are in a motorhome and don't have leveling jacks (like us), then you will need a lot of blocks/wood to level. Not only front/back but also side/side. Both times we went, ours was not perfectly level, but "close enough". We used 3 sets of lynx levelers. We enjoy the park a lot besides that. I will post some pics from this weekend later.

RE: newbie,want to buy a old popup trailer,is it safe?

You might wanna look at a liners and quicksilvers. They will be some of the lightest units out there. Pop ups are a great way to start camping. Are they safe? Depends on the unit. I wouldn't want to take one into grizzly country, just like I wouldn't want to tent camp their either.

RE: Ammo Container?

My question is why do you need to carry a lot of ammo? If you are a good shot, you shouldn't need much, unless you are planning on taking on an entire infantry. Your home has wheels igt? Just drive away. I'm a law enforcement officer and I don't carry or keep any weapons at home except heirlooms and there's no ammo for them. never have felt the need for them.

RE: Golf Car(t)s

I do understand that there are folks that really need one to get around in and also the cool little three wheel and two wheel electric scooters. My problem is with the folks that don't really need them and run all over a park when they could be walking which is a lot better for them. My other problem is with the electric carts that are soooo quiet that they sneak up on you. It's the same way with the electric and hybrid cars. They should make them bell the cat,or in other words,put a noise maker on them so that you can hear them coming. Don't walk on the road and you won't have to worry about how quiet they are. It will be better for your health as you won't have a heart attack, stroke or get hit.
