RE: Perfect backing!

Wife helping me back in would have to have a marriage counselor involved. She disappears and I get help from one of my male friends. No yelling and screaming that way. My job is pretty simple. I am just there to tell him if he is going to hit something and to watch for kids on bikes etc. When I think it might be right I tell him "GOAL" - get out and look and we are done.

RE: Remember your HS Physics?

Thanks for this post. I understood next to nothing but DH enjoyed it a lot. He is the Math & Science member of the family... and I rarely know what the heck he is talking about.

Perfect backing!

Last weekend we camped with family and friends (1 TT and 2 FW). All three were backed perfectly in place. DH can back anything but sometimes he likes to try a different approach and neighboring campers pull up their lawn chairs for the show. Sorry but no show this weekend... but keep those lawn chairs handy, you never know.:)

RE: Keystone Passports...Good-Bad or ???

Our friends have a Keystone Passport. Initially they had an issue with slide that was repaired under warranty. They really enjoy their Passport.

RE: Theft at campgrounds???????????

Welcome! We have camped for 34+ years and have never had anything stolen. We do keep our bikes locked and lock the 5th wheel when we are gone. This has been asked many times over the years and I remember reading about thefts of coolers, some lawn chairs, and mostly beer I think. The funniest one I remember reading (although not funny to the ones it happened to) was reports from several campers that beer, chairs, firewood, steaks and other food was taken. I believe they found the chairs and remnants of the firewood but the steaks and beer were all gone.

RE: How do you feel about people walking through your campsite?

I can't actually remember someone walking through our site. Once while camping with our daughter and her family a family walked right beside her TT window and startled her sleeping dog. Holly jumped up and barked loudly, not snarled just barked and the woman yelled at her. I let the woman know that Holly did not bark at anyone walking correctly on the road, but when someone walked right beside the window she was startled and barked, not the dog's fault. I did not get the feeling that this lady understood what I was saying.

RE: Trip Planning: The Perfect Family Trip 2016!

This will be an amazing trip. Yellowstone is an amazing adventure as is Glacier. While in the Mt. Rushmore area I would stop at the Crazy Horse Monument. It is a work in progress and being completed by the family of the original artist. We took similar trips with our kids and now as adults listening to them talk we know that they have amazing memories. Enjoy!

RE: Picnic Tables

We always use a tablecloth. When ready to leave, I always wait till DH pulls out and check out the site looking for anything left behind and making sure the site is clean. It seems by the comments that everyone on RV.net leaves everything clean. I have never read a comment from anyone who leaves sites a mess. Mmmm...tales of shame are silent or everyone here does the right thing?

RE: It's Now or Never - 1 year country tour

Have a wonderful trip. We took the kids for a month long trip west and as adults they have wonderful, funny, and some intense memories that we talk about a lot. I would suggest keeping a journal of your adventures, campgrounds, and all the funny things that happen.

RE: golf cart

Just wondering if there are places that golf carts are permitted for those who have the parking placard for people with disabilities only? We stay at a wonderful campground in Myrtle Beach, but the golf carts are to the point of being hazardous. Kids and adults "tour" the campground constantly. Riding a bicycle, walking a dog, or just walking to and from the beach is difficult. I appreciate the need for some in order for them to enjoy their experience and hope that there is a way to work this out.

RE: New trailer walk through

Also discuss and get a demonstration on winterizing. X3 on videotaping. Our daughter did that with her new TT and referred back to it a couple times. Make sure you know where the drain cap or valve for the fresh water tank is. When we went to fill our fresh water tank at the first campground we realized we did not have it. We looked all over and covered it with plastic wrap and rubber bands. When DH went to turn on the hot water heater, we found they had stored it in that compartment. The person filling next to us had a similar problem w/ water pouring out because they did could not find the valve.

RE: Can't See to Hitch Up

When DH and I read the responses, he said that our 5th has a mirror on the front that can be helpful. I don't know if yours does. After you figure out your personal system for backing, create a step by step system that works for hitching and unhitching. Follow that routine exactly every time. Make certain that you have no distractions, that you do a pull test each time and that chocks on first and chocks off last are words to live by. You can read dozens of posts where the 5th was dropped on the bed of the truck, or worse due to distractions and/or not following your routine. We typed the routine, laminated it and put it on the side of the hitch for the first couple years. Welcome to 5th wheeling.

RE: Are We Allowed to have a gun in an RV for protection?

Thank you all for very good info. What a great forum this is. With so much of the world going to the dogs, I want to feel safe while I camp. I like the bear spray idea. Do you find that the riff raff stays away from RV campgrounds? I see you are new to this forum. Welcome! If you decide to carry bear spray, make sure to read the directions carefully, and understand that if you are down wind from spraying it will be incredibly painful. You asked if riff raff stay away from campgrounds. We have camped for 36+ years primarily in and around state and national parks and have never had any thefts or any concerns. I know others have but that is our experience. Only once were we next to a large group of loud, obnoxious drunks who carried on until the early morning hours. We were leaving the next day so we did not do anything... but we decided to leave about 5:30 a.m. and since their group was the only ones nearby, we were none to quiet. Sorry, probably not very nice.

RE: Waxing MH - Avoid decals?

Yesterday we waxed our 5th wheel, which means I broke a hard and fast rule of mine. I wash... I do not wax, DH does. But it's a big job so we worked together. We use McGuire and "tried" to keep the wax off decals, but in some areas it is impossible to avoid them, and sometimes, I forgot. I just buffed it off.

RE: Quick road food

We always took a small cooler in the car with a sandwiches etc. like listed here. We also took cut vegetables and our favorite fruits. DH likes beef sticks and cheese also.

RE: Easter Dinner

Changed plans. It is going to be cold most of the weekend so we are getting together at my daughter's house. We will camp Mothers' Day weekend. Barbandwayne, do you have a recipe for Hawaiian meatballs. I think my family would like them.

RE: Had to laugh

Sounds like us except the furniture and bed. I have a very mild allergy so it is no to the furniture. But... when the grand dog visits, I cover the furniture and she gets on up. Our ACD is miffed and normally spends a lot of time nudging us and looking at the grand dog on the couch. One addition to the original list... I will never buy ice cream for a dog - Now if we stop for ice cream we get her a small dish.

RE: very high fifth wheel and bridge concerns

I agree that you should stay aware. Our 5th wheel is not very tall, but I am surprised when off highway that I actually forget about the possibility of low bridges. It is hard to imagine that you could forget the exact height of your rig, but you can. Several years ago someone posted on here that they put stickers 13'6" on the front of their 5th wheel backwards where they could see it from their rear view mirror. Sounded like a good idea.

RE: The 'Deviled' is in the details

Mayo, Mustard and Paprika. This is the recipe my mom used in New Jersey and Ohio. The only thing I do differently is that if I am making a lot, I fill the Super Shooter Cookie press and shoot the mixture into the egg whites. It is really quicker and looks great.

RE: Easter Dinner

Thanks so much. These are wonderful ideas and I can't wait to read more. While it is snowing today the weather for next weekend looks better so we may be good to go. I really like the ham in the crock pot idea as well as the cauliflower. We will do deviled eggs after the kids have their Easter Egg hunt.
