RE: Onondaga Cave State Park

Nice pictures! That is a nice campground. We haven't stayed there yet.

RE: Ravens at Grand Canyon

We drove through the campground when we were at the south rim. The ravens were at work in one campsite. Huge mess. They reminded us of raccoons. Just a crafty. Don't leave anything out.

RE: bike rack

I went with the Swagman bike rack. It is one of the few that state it is alright to use on a trailer. This is only partly true, and then only of some Swagman models. The two listed at this Swagman page , for example, carry the following warning: Mounting the Jackknife on a Trailer or 5th Wheel: 1. Purchaser is advised that the load created by rack and bicycles will exceed the strength of trailer or 5th wheel bumper, mounting location or the bike rack. The rack is not under warranty if mounted in this location. And even those listed at their RV bike rack page appear to be really designed for motorized RV's, not trailers- they all have the following disclaimers :Mounting the Bike Rack on a trailer or 5th wheel: 1. Purchaser is advised that the load created by rack and bicycles may exceed the strength of trailer or 5th wheel bumper or other mounting location. Failure through improper mounting will void rack warranty. 2. The recommended 14” ground clearance is not sufficient on trailers or 5th wheels. Ground clearance must exceed 15” and will vary upon application. Damage to bicycles or rack due to ground clearance problems on trailers or 5th wheels is not covered by warranty. 3. Excessive movement can cause damage to the rack or bike. This is not covered by warranty. Pull the rack back and forth and-if the rack has excessive movement a separate tether strap should be purchased. Most of what you posted speaks more of the hitch portion rather than the bike rack and everyone pretty much agrees that mounting a hitch to the bumper alone is a bad idea. Even with a proper hitch the bike rack will still move a lot. That is why I use a strap to minimize the movement.

RE: bike rack

I went with the Swagman bike rack. It is one of the few that state it is alright to use on a trailer. As stated above do not just bolt a hitch to your bumper. Here is how I went about mounting it. I also use a tie down strap to pre load the rack after the bikes are in place to help reduce the bouncing. http://i251.photobucket.com/albums/gg301/1stta/07%20Flagstaff%20829RGSS%20trailer%20and%20its%20mods/trailermods-hitch008.jpg http://i251.photobucket.com/albums/gg301/1stta/07%20Flagstaff%20829RGSS%20trailer%20and%20its%20mods/trailermods-hitch001.jpg http://i251.photobucket.com/albums/gg301/1stta/07%20Flagstaff%20829RGSS%20trailer%20and%20its%20mods/trailermods-hitch004.jpg http://i251.photobucket.com/albums/gg301/1stta/07%20Flagstaff%20829RGSS%20trailer%20and%20its%20mods/trailermods-hitch005.jpg http://i251.photobucket.com/albums/gg301/1stta/07%20Flagstaff%20829RGSS%20trailer%20and%20its%20mods/005-3.jpg http://i251.photobucket.com/albums/gg301/1stta/07%20Flagstaff%20829RGSS%20trailer%20and%20its%20mods/001.jpg

RE: Pork and Beans

We have used this one for a long time. Never seem to have any left overs. 1 lb. ground beef (browned and drained) 1/2 to 1 sweet bell pepper chopped 1/2 an onion (+ or -) chopped 2 cans pork and beans drained and rinsed 1/4 cup your favorite BBQ sauce 3/4 cup catchup 1/4 cup brown sugar ( + or - ) 1/4 cup white sugar ( + or - ) We tend to cut back on the sugar just a little bit. After browning the ground beef and draining add the chopped onion and green pepper. Cook for a short amount of time to get them to start softening. Add in the sugar, bbq sauce, catchup and beans. Bake @ 350 for 30-45 minutes uncovered. We do the browning and start the cooking of the onions and green pepper in the micro wave to speed things up.

RE: Portable Waste Tank Recommendation

One that is a little larger than the tank you wish to empty into it so you don't have to worry about over flowing the tote. I have a barker 4 wheel and have done the pneumatic tire mod. I thing barker is now offering pneumatic tires as an option. Not sure of that though.

RE: St. George Island fl. campground

You will find more shells if you walk up the beach to the Eastern end of the island. Yes, the mosquitoes are plentiful. Plan to spray down as soon as you get out of your trailer. The truck drove through to spray but I think it would have been more effective if they sprayed the foliage behind the sites. There was standing water in the brush. I think there is a quick shop, a few gift shops, ice machine on the island. There are a few places to eat.

RE: Fresh Water Tank won't empty via pump

This is the fitting I made up to solve that same problem on our trailer. The copper tube extends down to within a 1/8" to 1/4" of the bottom of the tank. Can now pump an extra 5 plus gals. over what it was before. http://i251.photobucket.com/albums/gg301/1stta/07%20Flagstaff%20829RGSS%20trailer%20and%20its%20mods/freshwatertankfitting002.jpg

RE: Handy Hints for colonoscopies?

I don't think anyone mentioned to not chug down the special drink because it won't stay down! It worked anyway. Thank goodness! The actual test was a breeze. I don't even remember. Marcia

RE: Forced to replan July trip. Help! Arkansas.

Petit Jean has a pool and lodge. We drove through the camp ground. Section A has FHU and drive thru sites. It looked pretty new and less shade than the older section. We visited last fall. Mt. Magazine SP has a nice campground in the woods. We stayed at Lake Dardanelle SP and visted the 3 parks nearby. That is a nice SP. Arkansas is beautiful!

RE: Back when camping was camping

Yes, tent = rain! We tent camped with our kids from the time they were 10 months old. We always made the best of it despite the rain and have some wonderful memories. When they were in college we bought a small TT. Our first week long trip around MO, AR & TX it rained every day! We were so excited to have an awning and a roof over our head even if we had to battle a leak! Bracing for another ice/snow storm in the St. Louis area tomorrow. For the last three years we have camped the second weekend in March... I'm sure it will be good camping weather by then:) Happy Camping Everyone! Marcia

RE: Spray hose by toilet

DH did a mod on our TT and hooked it up under the sink to the hot and cold. It has a shower control handle. If you turn it on all the way it is the perfect warm temperature. Good for rinsing anything!

St. Louis RV Show is Jan. 9-12

RV Show in St. Louis this weekend! If you are planning on going there is a buy one get one free coupon in the Outdoor Guide Magazine. It is free and available at many St. Louis metro area stores. Check out their web site for a list of stores. I'm not connected with this magazine in any way. I always look forward to the next issue! We will be there on Saturday dreaming of our future snowbird trailer:) Marcia

RE: campgrounds around Mountain Home Arkansas

We also like Bull Shoals White River State Park. New shower houses, some FHU sites(not on water but water view)other sites W/E. Trout fishing. Don't plan on wading unless you have insulated waders as the water comes off the bottom of the lake. We like the sites on the water.
