RE: Amish in Union Grove, NC

We stopped at an Amish farm in Michigan to buy cookies for my husband this morning. A real Amish store to stop at, for the local Amish, not the tourists

RE: My LG A/C experience (not good)

Forget your air conditioning and set up several vans inside. If you have enough of them you will be fine.

RE: Enormous Bugs and Where to Avoid Them

I did not know they bit. Thank you. Not that we have many in southern Michigan.

RE: Shelving for our TT.

We have hanging pockets over the head of each bunk that holds things but it seems to me if you are putting in shelves they would work better at the foot end. When we have smaller grandchildren we put a Rubbermaid container at the foot. It serves as both storage and a desk while they are awake. Do not know if either of my idea would help you but suggest if you are putting in a shelf you look at the area at the foot and not at the head end. Our head faces the bunk room TV but that does not mean others have to.

RE: Zion Np/ Moab / Grand Canyon North Rim

If you do the Narrows at Zion you should have hiking sticks or broom handles. There are often sticks left laying at the start. Old sturdy shoes to wear in the water, something that can get wet. Go to the websites of all of the parks and monuments. They will have the length and if they are easy or hard.

RE: Sofa bed

Years ago someone here suggested that you slice a swimming noodle down the center and lay it in the fold of the sofa bed. It sounded like a good idea. I have never tried it because we have a bed plus four bunks but it might make sleeping on the sofa better. I think they than laid a mattress topper over it.

RE: Just how much stuff?

Way too much stuff. I go thru everything every few times we go but somehow find more I have to take by the time we leave again.

RE: when boondocking do you bring a weapon ?

We have bear spray, oven spray cleaner and an aluminum bat. Never had to use any of them. Had the bear spray pulled out and ready to use once in the Canadian Rockies. The bear decided to leave.

RE: Resort Fees

I would call some resorts and ask what their fees are. Are there many that are upping their costs that much? You may not have any choice depending on what you like to do.

RE: window air cond

A family in an old trailer near us had one. They had to turn it off if they wanted to use their TV and microwave. Be aware that yours might be the same.

RE: What type of TV for a travel trailer?

Think carefully, how important is TV watching to you. It is not important to either of us so we have something smaller. If you really are interested get something as large as will fit n the space for it. We mostly watch news and talk shows so the picture does not really matter. We have two TVs if we are taking grandchildren as they have one in the bunkroom. It stays at home if we are alone.

RE: No Refrigeration Meals

We have taken several month or more vacations in a tent. We plan ahead and use a lot of canned foods. It is more difficult for me as I have not had gluten for over 35 years. A good ice chest helps for a week if it is not opened often.

RE: high TT steps

I was at a garage sale and found a thingy that was used for step exercises. Just the right size for the few times we need an extra step. Do you know anyone who has taken on of those classes and has no use for theirs.

RE: How to keep cat from under dash ??

Our cat was kept on a leash in the truck when we traveled. I could always grab it when he decided the best place to travel was under my husband's feet. And yes, I could stop him before he jumped off my lap or from the back seat to the front. He did have his blanky in the back seat. It really cut into my nap time.

RE: mice

A friend believed in the Bounce sheets until he found that the mice built a bed with them.

RE: used camper help

Insist that the refrigerator be plugged in so you can see if it works. Even on a new model it takes hours to cool down. Than check the furnace. You can use a heater in place of the furnace if necessary.

RE: Park City, UT options?

Do you need full hookups or can you use a campground with nothing but an outhouse? And when do you want to be there?

RE: Full time in smaller RV

If you are still reading you answers, we have a TT with bunks plus the bed for us. The bunks are great for storage.

RE: Visitors should pee outside!

Why not put a note on the door that says you are having trouble with you toilet and would they please use the campground toilet? That would meant that while they are there you would have to use it also but it would prevent that kind of problem.
