RE: Tiny Homes

Watched tiny homes this weekend and both of them built theirs and hit the road. ONe from Ca to New York. the other from Colorado and moved to oregon in it. both pulling them behind a truck..one they kept covering or shading out the license plate. randy PS there is a movement of these but they can cost $30k and up. My wife said would it not be better to just by a TT or 5er? and use it..

RE: Feeling pretty good about KOA Wilmington NC

Wilmington KOA is ran by a good guy, he owns New Bern KOA also. They have good people who manage both campgrounds. We have camped at both and I would return to either one in a minute. New Bern KOA is on US17 north of NewBern about 2 miles over the bridge. The camp host there is very sweet lady. So if you need a place to stop for night or stay for few more either of these are nice places. Plus KOA wilmington has a fuel station and RV wash right outside the entrance. randy

RE: Metal carport for 5th wheel questions

I have a 20' x 40' http://i1081.photobucket.com/albums/j345/mooger42/garage_zps631eb176.jpg I would not want it any narrower than 20'. Notice the side braces which narrow the opening. I was relatively pleased with this company and their work. English is not the first language of the company and you have to be careful when ordering oddball things like I did. Nice RVport Fred. Lots of extra room. Concrete floor too thats real nice. I like the extra width. I only had a 16'wide space for mine and 41 length. I went with 12 ft sides and enclosed right hand side, wishing now I had done the back side or at least the gable on that end. I want to close it up for the winter and really can't without rigging it some how... randy

RE: Slide out toppers

I had Carefree of Colorado installed on my toyhauler. No issues so far. They are well worth the money, and I wouldn't have a trailer without them. X2. yes they can be noisy in high winds. I just spent a week camping in 20-30 mph winds with gust up to 45. They made noise but my slide out tops are as clean as they come new. randy PS I made a special effort to get them on all 3 slide outs plus 2nd AC when we bought our camper.

RE: Questions About Installing a Residential Refrig in a RV?

I will be doing the installation myself and am looking for suggestions and recommendation for the installation. How is the refrigerator physically mounted? Most refrigerator have rollers. How were they chocked? Are screws used in the back frame to secure it? Were any straps installed on the top to prevent it from tipping? What do you do with the refrigerator vents? So on your installation did they close the vents off? Or were they left partially left open? For the cabinetry around the refrigerator how much gap did they leave for air circulation? Can it be vented to the outside? If they did that, how was it done? Did they close off the gap between the refrigerator and cabinetry? How was that done? What suggestion do you have for securing the door during travel? Thanks Dont know if you have facecrook or not but there is a site RVtips and they have a great article on this. My friend installed one on his 10 year old camper. He breaks it all down plus has pictures of his install. randy

RE: For those that resist giving up their flip phone...

my wife finally over the holiday got rid of her flip phone and joined the new millennium. She got herself a Samsung S5. I was helping her last night to get some apps and she was like " I like this". I like this finger never leaving the text box(slide texting) to type a text. She likes the way she can see the pictures she had on her old flip phone. :) randy

RE: Overnight parking at Camping World in Fayetteville, NC?

I just spoke with Camping World. They don't have any overnight parking spots per say, but the woman that I spoke with said that they have service spots (with electric). If there are any open, I'm welcome to use one. She recommended that I call the day that I'm traveling to see what is open. Good to know, thanks for the info. randy

RE: James Island County Park, Charleston SC places to eat/see

NOT sure of many indoor spaces. I just know lots of outdoor things to do. We are headed that way for 2015 spring break. Hoping for great weather as it will be 8 camping families. randy

RE: I know why Goodyear calls them Marathons

I've always just taken the TT wheels in to have the tires replaced - while the wheels are off I go through the bearings. Too much of a hassle to take the whole trailer in. same as I when I replaced my china bombs with maxxis in the last year all 4 tires. randy

RE: What Are You Building for a Thanksgiving Menu?

There are going to be 6 families that we share our Thanksgiving with, at a beach side campground. So we are having: oil-less fried(charbroil cooker)turkey, a turkey breast or two, spiral cut ham cooked in the crockpot with cranberry soda to keep it moist. then all the fixin's: mashed taters, sweet tater casserole, large egg noodles, deviled eggs, green beans, pinto beans, watergate salad, dressing, canned cranberry sauce, Crockpot mac & cheese, desserts lots of them and a few other items I can't think of right now.. So we will feed around 25+- folks and plenty of leftovers for another night. We usually get together and eat again on Saturday get rid of the leftovers from each campsite and have another community meal. Oh yeah this will be our 15th year we have done this together at a campground. We only missed one year due to death of one of our campers father and then we had a big get together pig pickin on that Saturday night. So really this makes it our 16th year together. Some folks come and go and we just keep it going with the main 4-6 families. Best times are spent camping with friends and having Thanksgiving dinner together makes it even more fun. randy

RE: NASCAR Bristol August 2015

There is a church near the track that opens up for the race weekends. ITS donation and they use the money for their youth program. Some are full hookups others are not. Shuttle you to track on race days. We stayed there for $100 for the weekend nd then ate in the gym. They fix breakfast and supper race days. I cant find it now but I can post the name and number if interested. Greek run Restaurant right next door with good food(steak). We walked one day to the track and its a hike but worth it. We walked back after the day race to get out before the crowds left. randy

RE: Blue Beacon

My son worked for them. HE said they washed 1-2 RV's a day. They even washed the owner of Ron Jon's surf shop RV early summer this year. I have a picture of it somewhere. Pretty cool RV. He said he liked the RainX added on made the RV's look a little better and gave it protectant type covering. randy

RE: Fifth Wheel Fishtailing

rozapaul, I had this early this year when I put new tires on my truck.. GOSh it was awful to drive, Worried me to death that I had screwed up front end. Took back to tire guy and he lowered the pressure down to 75psi per tire on the back and 70psi on the front. Told me I was good to go! really??? you know what he was right once I drove this set up the truck felt a lot better and handled like I was used to it. He told me the new tire depth allowed the tire to ride and flex on the thread tops making it squirrely feeling.. This past trip I pulled 200 miles one handed on the wheel until i got around others vehicles.The guy sells me all my tires and has for 20 years.. straight shooter when it comes to tires front end work, brakes and shocks, etc. JMHO randy
