Problem with Driveshaft Disconnect

We have a driveshaft disconnect on our 2012 Nissan Frontier. It was put on 37,000 miles ago. We had an issue with a broken cable, but nothing else. The other day, we were driving the truck. We heard a faint pinging noise, then the driveshaft dis-engaged. It was like we were in neutral. We were able to stop and re-engage it right away. We were able to drive home with no further problems. We haven't driven the truck since. We need to locate someone that is familiar with a driveshaft disconnect, but we are in the north Georgia mountains. Can anyone recommend anywhere that installs these driveshaft disconnects that is in this area. We are about 90 miles northeast of Atlanta, and about 30 miles south of the North Carolina border.

RE: Contemplating trip to Florida Keys

We have been wintering in the Keys several years now. We love it so much that we ended up buying an Rv lot at Venture Out Resort in Cudjoe Key. Rv sites are very hard to get in the Keys and getting one in a state park is next to impossible during the winter months, and nearly impossible other times. :) There are quite a few private Rv parks, but most people book next years site before they leave. A few places off the top of my head are Grassy Key, Fiesta Key, Sunshine Key, Bluewater Key, Venture Out (privately owned but some owners rent their site. you need a realtor to find one for you) Jolly Roger, Breezy Pines, Big Pine Key fishing Lodge, Geiger Key Marina. You can do a Google search on these places and see what you think. Plan on $100 a night winter rates and not much less other times. It's not cheap, but is so worth it! Check out my blog if you want to see some pictures from the Keys. (I take a LOT of pictures) Just do a search on Florida Keys from my blog. http://florida-georgiacamping.blogspot.com/

RE: rv sites florida keys

We own a lot at Venture Out Resort in Cudjoe Key which is at milemarker 23. It's not strictly an rv park. There are small older trailers, mid rise, high rise houses and scattered RV lots. They are all privately owned, so you would need to book directly with a Realtor. The park is very nice, gated, large ocean front pool, Atlantic side, marina and boat launch, tennis, hot tub....any amenity you could imagine. There are a few Realtors in the area that handle Venture Out rentals for the owners. Dolbery Realty is who we use. There are others. Another park is Sunshine Key between Marathon and Big pine. We stayed there every year until we bought at Venture Out. It's nice in the winter, not so nice in the summer.

RE: How much reliability would I gain replacing an old AC?

We're in the same boat. We have two ac units and the rear one failed recently. It was about 11 years old. We use our AC most every day so they have both been used a lot. The replacement one seems to be a lot more powerful, so we've been happy with it. We are always concerned about our cats and I've been reading about some systems that will send you a text showing the inside temp of your rv. I haven't had any chance to do any research yet. We're wondering whether or not to replace the other unit. Now when it's convenient, or later down the road when it breaks at the most inopportune time. Ou

RE: AC at the beach...

We're in Tampa, Florida. No shade and it's very hot and humid. We have two a/c and the mh stays cool. We were in the Keys through April and it was hot, humid there too. No shade and we stayed cool. Our mh is insulated well and we have dual pane windows though.

RE: Lazy days in Florida

We have bought two motorhomes there and wouldn't go anywhere else. Three years ago we bought a used Monaco mh. They went over it with a fine tooth comb and fixed everything they could find. We ended up with new tires, batteries, slide topper, slide gaskets, toilet. Mike Ballard was our service tech (ask him if you buy one). He checked everything out and found things we would never have found on our own (or not for a while) When you buy, you have 30 days guarantee. If you are on the road and find a problem, and can't get back to Lazy Days before the 30 days are up, you can call them, make note of the problem and they will fix it for you (under the 30 day warranty) when you can get back. Not that kind of service for many dealers. If you buy one, do not be in a big hurry to leave their lot. The clock on the 30 day warranty doesn't start ticking until you drive off the lot. We traded one end, so they set us up in the change over area. We kept finding little things that needed fixing, so they kept fixing them. We ended up being there a good while, but it was lucky because the refrigerator chose that time to fail and we got a new 4 door Norcold refirgerator, which was about a $5000 refrigerator. I can't say enough good about them, however some friends of ours bought an almost new Monaco and ended up being in their "Crown Club" It's where the high dollar rigs are taken care of. They got terrible service. I think it all depends on the technician that is in charge of going over that particular rig. As I said before, ask for Mike Ballard! He was great. Tell him Al and Karen Lueck sent ya!

RE: Water...please tell me it's gonna be ok!

I know you don't want to ruin your vacation but maybe it's best to get it handled right now. I would definitely call the insurance company and get it repaired correctly.

RE: Onan diesel 5500 generator oil leak

We had a small leak on our Onan. It has way more hours on it though. Hubby tightened the drain pipe and put some teflon tape on it. It hasn't leaked since (knock on wood) He always uses Onan oil and filters.

RE: No A/C at night....????

We prefer to sleep without the ac running, but it needs to be cool enough. What we do is to turn on the fantastic fan with it vented to go OUT. Then we open one window by the bed. The fan sucks the air out and blasts cooler air in through the open window. Then put a fan by your bed.

RE: Strange pairings at the camp ground on father's day weekend.

I don't even know how to respond to this post. She admits she has screaming kids and a messy campsite. No wonder the people didn't stay out long.

RE: Are you scared of the mountains!!

I'm with Klueck, I am intimidated by mountains. I haven't been brave enough to pull my TT in the mountains. I hope to find someone to help me when I purchase my MH, so that I am not terrified to take it into the mountains (even NC, VA and GA). We don't even have hills here in South Georgia either (we are slightly higher than FL at 203 ft) so I have no real mountain experience. We travel from Tampa to our lot in the north Ga mountains in Blairsville via a nice route with no steep grades or curvy roads. We go 75/575/76/129. We found we prefer Atlanta traffic over mountains!

RE: Are you scared of the mountains!!

Yes, frankly, we are a bit intimidated by mountains. We're Floridians, so we won't even have hills. We don't like driving down the steep and curvy mountains in the North Carolina or Georgia mountains. We haven't had a chance to get out west, but the mountains are certainly a concern. We have a DP, but going down is the main concern.

RE: Recovering the Dog house

When we redid our flooring, we decided against doing the dog house. We got some Rit dye and sprayed it on. It turned out well, and looked good. HERE is the link for the blog posting I did. You can see what the doghouse looked like before and after.

RE: Florida campground

We like the Keys. Venture Out Resort in Cudjoe Key is where we will be.

RE: Strange noise

Green tree frogs can sound like that. They can climb up the side of an rv and move around hiding in various places. You could probably Google them and hear the sound they make.

RE: mirrored closet doors?

A friend of mine placed a sheer curtain hung from a tension rod (I think). It covered the mirror. I hate mine too.

RE: Where to Start for rates and location

The best place to go is to the individual campground website. It they don't show montly rates, call them. There are plenty of parks in Florida that offer 300-500 monthly rates, but the further south the more expensive. You can expect $1500 in the Keys and the further north, the cheaper it will be.
