RE: Finding the "real" Florida

Are you really sure you want to go to Miami? There are a lot of better beaches than the traffic and crime you will deal with in Miami. The east coast has waves and more wind. The gulf coast has some nice white sandy beaches, calm seas and less wind. In other words you can enjoy the beach more. The beaches gulf side from around Tarpon Springs down are nice. North of Tarpon Springs you get a lot of oyster beds and not many sandy beaches. Finding spaces on the spur of the moment is difficult enough in the winter, but finding spaces that will fit a 42 ft rig is going to be a lot more difficult. You will probably need to concentrate on the less popular places, like north of Orlando and into the Panhandle. The further south, the warmer it is, the more expensive it is and the harder to find a site last minute. (and this is last minute) It gets pretty cold in north Florida in the winter. My definition of the real florida is the springs and rivers in north Central Florida. Rainbow River, Silver River, Weeki Wachee River, Manatee Blue Springs, Blue Springs, Silver Springs, Ichetucknee springs, Ginnie Springs. Basically go on the Fl state parks website and look at the springs and pictures. It's a lovely area and one not to be missed. Getting your rig into many of the state parks will be tricky and they book up 11 months in advance. In fact the most popular places in Fl book for next season before the people leave for the summer. You might get lucky and get a cancellation. Not in the price range you mentioned, but if you change your mind, we aren't going to be able to get down to our RV lot in the Keys this winter due to my Mom's health issues. We'll be renting it out, but price wise, it's more than you budgeted. Of course the Keys is the BEST place in Florida to winter...which is why we bought a lot. :) BTW, we are in Quail Run Rv resort in Wesley Chapel, plenty of large concrete spots but it's already half full and completely reserved for the winter. You might call and see if there are cancellations, but they usually quit putting people on the cancellation list pretty quickly. Good luck and enjoy Florida.

RE: Leaving your RV where you winter

I see more and more people leaving their rv's here in Florida. We probably will do that at some point, but we will leave one on our rv lot in the north GA mountains and one on our lot in the Fl Keys. We'll do like you did and find something inexpensive. Sounds like a great deal.

RE: Lot owners! Watch out for scams.

We have lots for rent and I rarely deposit the actual check. I use my online banking, scan the check and then I have the original check. I wonder if they have my account info when they get the copy?

RE: Key largo campgrounds

Point of View campground on Key Largo is nice. It's fairly new, but you definitely need to make reservations asap. Actually, you needed to make reservations 10 months ago.

RE: Looking at used DP's?

We like to talk to the previous owner. We asked the salesman for the manuals and we found the previous owner there. We called him and asked plenty of questions. We ended up buying our DP and have been happy with it. Sometimes the dealers will give you the previous owners information, sometimes you can snoop and find it.

RE: Leaves In the Smokie Mountains

We were there yesterday in Cherokee, NC. The leaves are just starting to change. It's always spotty. We found better color in north Ga on the way to Franklin, NC than we did in the GSMNP. Elevation does not always determine color, so when you get there take some rides. The Cherohala Skyway is lovely when its at peak. Coming from Florida, you will love it, whether the leaves are at peak or not. It's been absolutely perfect here with days in the 70s and nights in the 50's. It's getting colder this week, so bring some warm clothes. We are Floridians too, so can relate.

RE: Flordia in January?

Campgrounds can be tricky in Florida. Each year thousands and thousands and thousands of snowbirds bring their Rv's to Florida. You may find campgrounds but you need to make reservations and I personally wouldn't want to take a chance, but we have a large MH so we're limited as to where we can go. The state parks are very very nice. I don't think there is a bad one in the state.

RE: Hurricane Joaquin - BIG CHANGE IN PLANS

I'd stay put too if you're in a well built house. No need to be traveling with the potential of strong winds and rain.

RE: What kind of RVer are you

We intend to travel but I have an elderly Mother that lives in Tampa, so we hesitate to get too far away. We have found a pretty good compromise. We bought a rv lot in the Florida Keys and we stay there from Feb thru May ish. We head back to Tampa for a few months and then to our Rv lot in the north Ga mountains. No, we haven't been out west yet and we hope to be able to travel more, but in the meantime, we're pretty happy.

RE: Stay in Key West or Outside area RV. Park.

I can't help you for March, but we have a place in the Keys and am pretty familiar with it. Key West is definitely a really fun place but I wouldn't stay further up than the 7 Mile Bridge in Marathon if you plan to travel to KW very often. It's no fun coming home at night and having to drive through the Key Deer area (slower speeds) in Big Pine and then crossing the 7 Mild Bridge. Too many fatalities on that bridge. If you can snag a coveted reservation at a state park, Bahia Honda is the closest to KW. They are booked the minute they are available for booking, which is 11 months out. If you try 11 months and one minute, all the sites will be gone. Our Rv lot is on Cudjoe Key (mile marker 23) so it's very close to Key West. We go there often and always have a blast. We rent our lot out when we aren't there, so check it out it you might be interested in December and January. Our fees INCLUDE the Florida 12.5% bed tax, most others don't.

RE: Georgia mountains

There are a lot of campgrounds in the mountains of north Georgia and it's a wonderful place to spend summers normally. Unfortunately, this year has been warmer than normal. We just got to Blairsville a little over a week ago from Tampa, Florida. We own two rv lots in Blairsville and we rent one out. We are near Vogel State park. Rivers Edge

RE: Cat Litter odors.....

We use good clumping cat litter and have no problems. We scoop often and use a clumping litter with some odor control (blue) pellets in it. If you have an odor problem, change litter. We have found some litter that seems to have odor almost right away. We now use Odor Shield and Special Kitty (found at Walmart). We use mix the two together to give the best mixture with no odor and less dust. Your kitties will do fine. Ours travel in their cages which they do not like, but quickly settle down and sleep the entire trip. Be sure to cage them before engaging the slides and do not let them outside and they will be happy kitties.

RE: Monaco...The Good years and the bad...

We bought a preowned 2003 Monaco Windsor 4 years ago. It's a 41 foot without a tag axel. Our CCC is 6219 lbs. We have been extremely happy with this very well built coach.

RE: From Mass to FL Keys - looking for resort campgrounds

We have a Rv lot at Venture Out Resort on Cudjoe Key, which is 24 miles from Key West. Lost of amenities, on the Atlantic side and close to Key West. We rent it out when we are not there. Here is a link to our site for more info: Venture Out Resort

RE: Directv Genie Question

We changed to HD Tv's last year and changed our old Tivo's for the Genie. I still prefer Tivo, but the Genie works fine in the MH with no internet. If I had it to do over again, I would definitely upgrade to HD tivo and not Genie, but it's fine...I'm just spoiled from Tivo.

RE: Florida

Good luck. The past few years we've seen a huge increase in RV all year long, not just in the winter. February is the busiest month and you have a large rig. You might be able to find a spot for a few days here and there, but normally the sites available are the least desirable (small) and might not work well for you. I'm sure it could be done, but may be a tad stressful. We were in the Keys last Feb and out 600+ rv park was completely full, as most others, and even hotels were completely booked.

RE: Dash Air (Update)

We had a problem with our dash AC. The fan would work but only on high speed. We decided to fix it before it quit all together. We have a Monaco DP mh but I believe most are similar. It turns out the fan switch was a Ford Part which we got at a nearby Ford Dealer. We were told it would either be the fan switch or the resistor. The fan switch is on the front passenger side of the MH, accessed through the generator compartment. It was an easy replacement, but unfortunately not the problem. Oh well, It was only a $27 part. The resistor was a little harder to locate but in the same general area. Hubby got it out and replaced and we now have all 4 dash fan speeds. I'm not sure this is your problem since you have no fan at all. I did a Google search and found our problem was quite common. Good luck.

RE: Awning fabric separated at seam

The awning topper on our living room slide did the exact same thing, except ours is a at least 3 feet that separated. We only found out about it when we had a flood inside. We're taking it in today to Lazy Days to have the topper replaced. Wish us luck. It's a big slide and we're not going to try to do it ourselves.
