RE: Steadyfast install on a Sierra fifth wheel

I installed my steadyfast one muggy SATURDAY, Front end was not much of a problem. Had to mount it backwards from instructions due to gas line. back was a bit more because I have a cougar with the slide out bike/storage rack. I had to have the back bracket welded and then spaced to clear the slide out. real time with all the sweating was around 4-5 hours. I followed instructions step by step so that I did not screw anything up. Also don't forget as you install the screws/self-tapers to use the locknuts the first time that will cut out some install time. :( Cant show any pictures as I dont have website with my pictures on it anymore. stevewatr, good videos and they should help someone to install steadfast system. I do have pictures of the welding that I had done about two Saturdays later. Had to find someone who would weld it and drag the camper to their shop. I had everything ready to install after the welding, so that was quick and easy. about 15 minutes for that.. That welding was the only real problem I had installing mine. IT has made a difference and you really tell it. randy

RE: Pirateland, Myrtle Beach

Terryallen, did you see the new walmart super sized mini mart just across the street almost from Pirate land, Lakewood and Ocean Lakes? Neighborhood walmart I think is the name. NOT the super stores in 17 and 544 but a smaller one like a big mini mart.. Just wondering? It opened while we were at OLCG in May. thanks randy

RE: Willow Tree Route

You're good. US 74 at Lumberton, then once on 410, we pick up US 701 to SC 9 East to Willow Tree. Awesome CG, have fun! X2 just dont drive past the road to get to Willowtree. If you drive past the Foodlion in Longs on SC 9 you have passed your road to turn.. randy

RE: Oklahoma to NC - SC trip

Greensboro camping is the pits, I would say the High Point lake(oak hollow CG) would be great. Havelock,NC Stay on US 70 and cross the bridge on US17 from NewBern and stay at the KOA(Bridgeton) US17 just across the Neuse River from NewBern. Great place to stay great campground hosts. You are just a short drive to Havelock and the Morehead city and the beach on US 70. NO camping in Havelock or Morehead city areas. At Myrtle Beach you are cutting it close to Labor day weekend rates and very full campgrounds around that area.If the big 4(ocean lakes, lakewood, pirate land, Myrtle Beach travel park) in the area are full check the MB KOA thats not ocean front or the new one Cypress Resort on the intracoastal waterway. Its off SC-544 which is right off US-17 bypass. get up and head on down US-17 to Charleston. There are 2 state parks in the area so you can see online reserve America if they have openings also. MB state Park and Huntington Beach State park. Charleston I would say James Island county park.. Best around the area..that is local county park run by the county and its on a marsh inland from the ocean..It has a water park open to the public, well the whole park is but the campground is private to the campers.. Hope this helps.. if You stop in THE Greensboro area and you need help for anything let me know... I'll give you contact info for emergencies.. My neck of the woods.. randy

RE: Ever been totally rained out?

We was tent camping in the Smoky Mtn Natl Park in Gatlinburg TN one year setup near the banks of LITTLE RIVER flowing through the ELKMONT camp. Got woke up in the middle of the night by the Park Rangers to evacuate the camp grounds as the LITTLE RIVER was overflowing its bank. No time to break camp or anything - just grabbed a few things, got into the truck and headed for higher ground. Got to go back later on after sunrise and found our site pretty much in tact but the whole roll of tents on the waterside got washed out. There was tents scattered for miles downstream... No one hurt with many thanks to well alerted Park Rangers... Roy Ken I think we were down stream in Pigeon Forge that year! watched that stream go from easy flowing to raging river and 2 foot from camper. I had everything ready to bug out if needed. We were camped at Myrtle beach when Sandy came through..LOTS and LOTS of rain and local flooding..We spent most of our time in the malls at Myrtle just to stay dry.. Popup was the last time we left early due to rain.. Randy

RE: Excess heat in bunk above outdoor kitchen..

most frigs in the outdoor kitchen are electric, My daughter and son in law have an outdoor kitchen and he leaves his open most of the time while we are around it. At night he closes it(the door) but his is bigger than the one pictured and he has more kitchen area than that so he has some breathing room above his frig. I like the idea of checking for that air space between kitchen and bunk and adding some heavy foam silver lined insulation. randy

RE: Orlando to North Myrtle Beach..

Then hit 22 or 31 to North Myrtle Beach. You will get off at Kings Road, by the Walmart, and on the road to Myrtle Beach Travel Park, and Apache North side campgrounds this is best route. If south end campgrounds off I-95 to sc31 to us501 to sc544 right at/past Conway and take that to us17 wher it meets 544 and come out in front of Oceanlakes and lakewood about 2miles from Pirateland. randy

RE: Favorite/Least favorite campground for families

Down south the 4( MB travel park, pirateland, lakewood, Ocean Lakes) at Myrtle Beach are great for families. We personally enjoy Ocean Lakes on the south end of Myrtle. We have heard the state parks are good too. Worst well I havent stayed at any I wouldn't go back too. Randy

RE: Willow Tree Rv Park

Willow Tree is one of our favorite.The hot tub sites are awesome. Last two times we tried to get in, they were booked full with snow birds. Go figure. Enjoy your stay. Thats the new business plan.. I understand you got to pay the bills.. But they have just about pushed the transient campers out. They have got some nice permanent sites with very high end cottages now.. It is a nice campground and the staff management are some the best people you will ever meet. It is clean and sites are great..But they have lost our business due to the snowbird & permanent camp sites over any one else attitude. randy

RE: Willow Tree Resort Longs SC

We just camped Willowtree the whole week of Thanksgiving 2013. The sites have plenty of grass and all the sites have a nice paved pad for the RV and a very nice concrete pad for picnic table and any thing else you would want. The campground is nice and clean as is the bathhouses. You must remember you are 10 miles from Cherry Grove section of MB, SC. There is a food lion about 3 miles away on Highway 9 and a Dollar general. Diesel is on the corner of HWY 9 and SC 504. You are about 20 miles or less from Calabash, NC the seafood town. Sunset Beach is near Calabash. Other than being away from everything(the action of MB) it is a very nice CG. One thing is during the fall and winter months they cater to the SnowBirds. They also rent/lease sites year round to others and they have some of the better sites. BUT if you are looking for a place that is away from it all and is nice and clean. This will work. Black Bear golf course on HWY 9 is about a mile from it on the back roads. If I can help with anything else let me know. randy

RE: Warranty Support From Wholesale Dealers

My son in law and daughter bought their camper in Ohio to save around 6K after expenses to travel and bring it back. They had the control panel issue on the cougar. Local camper world serviced it and worked on few other warranty issues for them & In a very professional manner also. Service dept works independent of the sales staff around here any way. randy

RE: awning accesories

Are you talking about a sun screen? One that attaches to the awning rail and stretches out and is anchored? Like this? They will definitely keep the sun out and make it much cooler underneath as long as the wind is blowing in the other direction and they will keep the rain from coming in unless it is windy, then the rain will come right through it....it is mesh. I have one that I made. I purchased the mesh fabric at Walmart a couple of years ago and installed grommets to hang it from the awning. I use the same awning hooks that I have the lights hanging from and then use "balled" bungee cords on the bottom to stretch it out and tent hooks to stake it. We use it on occasion, but not everytime we camp. I did the same thing.. Walmart had several colors and I just copied what I had seen on the others hanging around.. Pretty neat add on. randy

RE: Blue Beacon Truck Wash

Has any one had there MH Washed at the Blue Beacon wash at Haw River NC exit 150 off I-85/I-40 Flying J. I have had good experience at other Blue Beacon Wash, was wondering what if any experience you have had at this particular Blue Beacon. Thanks Roy RoyBuck My son is the 2nd shift wash bay supervisor there. He's off this weekend, but if you go after 3:30pm most days he is working. tell him you know me and he better do it right.. He is wanting me to bring my camper and truck down but the weather has been so screwed up, I hate to spend the money to get the stuff cleaned and then it rains, sheets, snows on it the next day.. randy
