RE: MissC has passed on

I know exactly how you feel! I lost my best animal buddy Nemo, our beloved Pekingese, about three weeks ago; I miss him so very much and still grieve for him. He loved to travel and had probably visited more states than 8o% of Americans. He only had to be boarded once in his life and that was only for a night while we attended an out of town funeral; the rest of his life he was with us! So very sorry for your loss! Hold all the good memories in your heart.

RE: snake skin

Don't know if it is possible from the condition of the skin, but I would try and get someone to identify what can of snake it was and then go from there. Knowing my DW, I would tell her before I left; otherwise, it might not be too pleasant should she see the snake while in the motorhome. I guess you could always plead ignorance though!

RE: Jayco 31.5BHDS, 2008

We own a Jayco 31.5BHDS, 2008 Model. One of the issues is that in the front area where the bunks are, it can get warm if you camp in hot climates i.e. south during the summer months. We have a 15,000 BTU AC unit, and it is not enough to keep that area cool. Possibly they have improved the air distribution system on newer models. We also had both frame rails crack above the axles. I suspect that this problem is not unusual with the manufacturers making trailers as light as possible now days. This also may have been re-engineered but frames are now being made by Lippert so I don't know. (The frame on my trailer was made by Dexter which the frame manufacturing division was bought out by Lippert sometimes after 2008. Any other questions or information, just send me a pm. Of course we have had other minor issues to deal with, but I would consider them typical for any RV.

RE: Texas to Kentucky

If you are going to spend some time in the Texarkana area, you might want to consider camping in one of the Corp parks on Lake Wright Patman. We stayed at Piney Point campground both on the weekend and weekdays-the park was hardly used-maybe 1/4 full on weekends-has lots of trees, good roads and nice asphalt pads and it is not very far off highway 59. I think they also have some full hookup sites overlooking the lake also, but they probably go first.

RE: West to East Across Houston in Rush Hour?

Regarding using the beltway 8 (Sam Houston Tollway) you will have to go thru the cash line when pulling a trailer. At rush hour, the lines can be anywhere from 1/4 to 1/2 mile long at some of the toll booths. Also, some of the toll road cannot be used unless you have a Texas EZ Tag (portion between Highway 59 and I10 on the north side. You will have to use the access road on that portion which isn't too bad. If I were you, I would go straight thru on I10. Get in the middle lane and just watch closely as you approach downtown at the I10 and I45 interchange in order to get in the lane going east on I10. Of course, all bets are off if there is a wreck on the freeway. As someone said monitor the traffic with real time mapping if possible.

RE: Theodore Roosevelt Medora Foundation

We stayed there a few years ago. Just your average campground; I think that the campground reviews found in RV Park Reviews gives you a good picture of the park.

RE: Be careful returning from MX to TX

I wouldn't worry about random road rage or random shooting incidents when passing through Houston or anywhere else in Texas.

RE: Glacier National Park

The KOA on the west side of the park is one of the nicest KOA's we have ever been in. X2

RE: Oak Plantation Campground - Charleston, SC

About the only thing that I can add, is the main road in the campground has speed bumps which seem to be every 20 ft or so (just kidding-not that close) which are annoying. As 2Retired said the traffic on the road in front of the campground can be very heavy during rush hour, so try to arrive/depart at off peak hours.

RE: advice needed on used Jayco 5er

I haven't slept on the couch but my adult kids have and it seems to be uncomfortable. The bunks are fine for kids, but a little small for adults especially if you are six feet or taller.

RE: advice needed on used Jayco 5er

I have this trailer. Just a little different arrangement inside. Here's some things to check for as I have experienced with this trailer: Check for cracks in frame above axles. Check for cracks in covers for skylights and vents (especially if they are discolored.) Check steps to make sure that they don't sag to one side are another indicating a possible weld failure. Hope this helps. I have experienced these with this particular trailer.

RE: San Antonio east or south toward Florida

Just go straight thru Houston at off peak hours (10:30am-2:00pm) during weekdays. I would not recommend travel at night or on weekends thru Houston since a huge amount of road construction is underway on most major freeways and these roads are sometimes completely closed or at least partially closed sometimes at night or on weekends. As an alternate, you could travel the access road from IH10 west to IH10 east on Beltway 8 (Sam Houston Tollway) around but there are many lights and this will take you about 1 hour longer than going directly thru Houston on IH10! I mention the access road for Beltway 8 as some of the tollway you need a special pass to use the tollway as there are no toll booths for collecting cash.

RE: Oh No! Ruined theBumper on My New Truck

I bought a reconditioned OEM front bumper in Houston way cheaper than I could get a new OEM bumper. Looked as good or better than the original OEM bumper.

RE: Mall of America Warning

Haven't been there in 3 years, but Dakotah Meadows RV Park and casino run free shuttles to Mall of the Americas if your their guest. Much easier r than trying to navigate traffic and find parking spaces.

RE: Getting Diesel at service station or truck stop?

Be aware that some of the diesel pumps for 18 wheelers are high capacity pumps and will fill your truck up in about 1/5 the time that a regular diesel pump will. This happened to me. Fortunately, I hadn't turned away to do something else when I was filling up, or I might have had a pretty good diesel spill.

RE: state parks in Texas

Don't know if you are looking for an overnight stop or not, but Stephen F. Austin State Park about 40 miles west of Houston on I10 has full hookups and is a nice park. Also, there is Palmetto State Park about halfway between Houston and San Antonio-don't think that one has full hookups. South Llano River outside Junction is nice-we have stayed there a number of times-water and electricity only there though.
