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.

Easter Dinner

Just asking if anyone is camping and cooking Easter Dinner for family and friends? Depending on the weather, we may camp at an Ohio State Park for Easter and have the family in for dinner. Our oven is temperamental and I am asking what you are cooking that does not include the use of an oven. Thanks in advance.

RE: Tailgaters

We also try to stay in the right lane and if on a 2 lane road try to maintain the speed limit. Just a note. When driving my car I always run the speed limit or a few over, but still sometimes have someone tailgate me even in the right lane when the other lane is open. I do not get that. When that happens, I use my windshield washer, the water runs all over the windshield on the car following and I suddenly see their wipers go. That normally backs the person off... must not have seen the bug smash on my windshield that I had to clean.

RE: Rudest dealer ever

My thought is there is never a reason for a store employee to be rude. A simple response of, "I'm sorry we are closed" would have been the appropriate response and I would have hoped the OP would have accepted that. I understand that people want to get home to families, plans etc. at the end of their work day. I have to confess that about 100 years ago in high school and college I worked in an Ice Cream/Diner type place and sometimes a bus would pull up about 5 minutes before closing. Sometimes I immediately turned off the lights. The next day I always sheepishly confessed this to the owner... fortunately he was understanding and laughed.

RE: Noisy kids, drunks,rude people, dog dung

We have camped for over 30 years and have had very few issues with others. Unsupervised kids worry me... occupational hazard. I do hate it when it is so loud that I can't sleep - oh wait, that is almost always DH snoring. I guess the poster did not mean that kind of noise. Fortunately I am pretty sure he is not loud enough to be heard at other campsites.

RE: Best road atlas

Thanks. I opted for the Rand McNally Motor Carriers. But... we were opening gifts and DH got me the Good Sam RV Road Atlas. Yikes now we have two!

RE: Best road atlas

DH is a computer programmer/systems analyst. I use to help drive when pulling a TT but I have not driven with the 5th wheel, no reason, I just haven't. He has chosen the Garmin RV since we need a new GPS, but we would also like a atlas type. Thanks for all the info. I am beginning the search.

Best road atlas

We normally just use a gps but I am looking for an Atlas for DH for Christmas. Can anyone tell me which one you use? Thanks

RE: Scared -first time for everything

I have not read all replies but DH and I think bear. You heard scratching on the side first and then an attempt to open the door. We can't imagine a person scratching first but a bear will and they do know what handles are for.

RE: Potluck winners needed please

Most requested dessert recipe, and the easiest one I make. Tube of refrigerated chocolate chip cookie dough. Pat it in a 9x13 pan and bake. Remove and spoon 3/4 cup peanut butter on top. Return to oven that you have turned off for 40 seconds. Smooth out. Add bag of semi sweet chocolate chips. Return to oven for a minute or two. Spread Chop 4 favorite candy bars and spread on top. I add m&m's for color. Let cool then cut and serve.
