RE: Replacement tires

IMHO, the tires the dealers suggest are the tires they have in stock and want to sell. This benefits the seller, rather than the buyer.

RE: Anybody see anything wrong here for my water hookups?

What if someone flips the valve for the black flush when you're not around. Hello sewage flooded coach when toilet blows off the flange.

RE: Myrtle Beach Travel Park specific question

I've driven thru MBTP. There is a high sand dune between the campground and beach. The dune has a few openings to walk thru to reach the beach. A few sites may have a view of the ocean thru these walkways. I usually stay next door to MBTP at Apache. Apache is rundown but I always get a beach front site. I can see the ocean and beach from these sites. Plus, Apache has a long pier and you can see the beach and campground from the ocean. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/28666687/36.JPG height=400 width=600 https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/28666687/89.JPG height=400 width=600 https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/28666687/post card 3.jpg height=400 width=600

RE: wifi camera while camping

You'd need a fast internet connection. For "after the fact" monitoring you could use a game camera.

RE: Buying trailer in FL, PA resident- how to title?

If you trailer will be in FL for more then 6 months a year it has to be registered in FL. If you trailer will be in PA for more then 6 months a year it has to be registered in PA. To register in PA get an "intansit" permit from FL. This permit will allow you to drive from FL to PA. When in PA you'll then be able to register/title in PA and pay the PA sales tax.

RE: safe layovers YoungstownOH to Toledo OH

See, this is why I love this site. Never even thought of rest areas. although I don't need hookups, this sounds perfect for what we need. We can stop later and fill up our supplies when we get closer to Gaylord. TomN thanks for the link awesome. Thanks Vic If you do not need hookups you can park outside the RV hookup area for free. Ohio turnpike is now almost all 6 lanes and tolls are reasonable.

RE: safe layovers YoungstownOH to Toledo OH

When you get you ticket when entering the OH turnpike ask for their rest areas RV brochure. As DrewE stated the rest areas are great. Ohio Turnpike rest area brochure. -Tom, W3TLN

RE: Rattlesnakes can climb trees? (long)

Tom, according to the Ranger at Hovenweep, it was a faded midget rattlesnake. . It is apparently a cousin of the Mojave, but just a little less toxic. I googled "faded midget rattlesnake". Never too old to learn. Thanks.

RE: Rattlesnakes can climb trees? (long)

What you encountered was probably a Mojave rattlesnake. The Mojave rattlesnake has highly potent venom. The most common subspecies of Mojave rattlesnake (type A) has a neurotoxic venom that is considered to be the most debilitating and potentially deadly of all rattlesnakes, and even several elapids. However, chances for survival are very good if medical attention is sought as soon as possible after a bite. source wikipedia The southeast's pigmy rattlesnake is much, much less dangerous. Since this species is unable to produce much venom, it is unlikely that it is able to deliver a fatal bite to a human adult. Brimley (1942) wrote that although it was too small to be really dangerous, its bite "will give the victim quite an unpleasant time for several days. However, bites involving children have resulted in prolonged hospitalization and there are also reports of necrosis. source wikipedia

RE: GPS Routing question

In MS S&T save your trip as a GPX file. For old Garmins use Garmin's MapSource software to load that .GPX file in to your Garmin GPS. For new Garmins us Garmin Ecpress. Mapsource Garmin Express

RE: COE Cg charging $20 to dump

Know Before You Go Park attendants are on duty Cruiser sites are for boats that accommodate sleeping only Vehicles or trailers are not allowed on tent sites This campground has first-come, first-served sites Group Shelter is for day use only, no camping allowed Arriving campers that require the use of the trailer dump station prior to occupying their campsite will be charged the $20.00 use fee as the waste being dumped was not generated on site Source: ST LUCIE SOUTH, FL Makes sense to me.
