RE: Changed Storage Facility - What Direction Should I Park?

Not to be biased, but I am so thankful I can keep my camper at my house under an RV Port. I would say like the others I would want my slides to the side that I can them open the most and not have to worry about crawling under them it the need arises. Have fun randy

RE: Well, that went as expected

there is learning curve after backing a TT. I have learned after 4 years of doing ti to talk to mayself.. I say slow and easy and keep repeting it over and over.. the reason is the 5er reacts quicker and and little movement makes for large tail movement on the 5er. So slow and easy gets it right. all the other hints helped from most anyone but for me personally. just doing ti "slow and easy" works everytime. Someone said back from drivers side, which is prefered but to get into my driveway at home I back from the passenger(blind) side and I am backing into a RVPort too. SLOW and easy gets me there each time. I did Sunday with only one major correction and it rolled right where I wanted it. Take care and remember You are NOT unteachable.. IF that was me, He might have heard me being unthinkable.... randy

RE: How much do you use your generator?

I dont have a built in generator but agree with most all on here. Put it back in say in the ad generator doesn't work..leave it at that, set the price to where you are comfortable selling and go with it. That being said I just bought a 4000 watt Champion with a dedicated 30 amp plug on the front of for just occasion that I need it, May never use it for anything but having is giving me piece of mind. it will ru nthe 15k ac and a microwave but not at the same time. So it will cool me when needed and warm it needed too. randy

RE: Hwy 17 from Wilmington NC to Williamsburg VA?

Wilmington KOA is a nice campground. Wrightsville Beach area is very nice. US17 will carry you through the back country roads of NC from Wilmington to VA. Lots of small towns. It doesn't run right along the coast line either. Its inland mostly because of NC's coastline and how diverse it is. There is another KOA in New Bern, NC along US-17 it is owned by the same family that the Wilmington KOA is. Have fun. randy PS map it and see how it runs..

RE: still traveling ?

Thanks to all of you who are still camping in your older youth years. Makes me feel like I can do it longer than I thought. I just turned 58. I am about to make some major changes in my life to be healthier and this gives me more incentive. Thanks, randy

RE: Easter Dinner

We have done plenty of Easter's and many more Thanksgivings in our RV. We have a regular round crockpot that stays in there, but during holiday trips, I have a large oval that will fit a good size ham or turkey. Cook 6-8 hours on high or 8-10 on low and it is "fall off the bone" good. I always use strips of aluminum foil underneath so I can pick the bird or ham up out of the juices before serving. I will use the round crock pot to make green bean casserole or baked potatoes to then do twice baked potatoes with. (put in cp, turn it on high for about 4 hrs and they are good to go). I have done a big lasagna in the oval pot. Cook my burger and add ready-made sauce, onions, green peppers and whatever else I want to add. Make sure there is lots of liquid. Put a layer of liquid on the bottom, layer uncooked noodles, then sauce, ricotta cheese, then mozzarella, and continue layering. On the very top, I will add about 3/4 cup of jarred sauce mixed with 3/4 cup of water, then top with cheese. This will allow enough liquid for the noodles to cook. YUMMY and quick. Cook 4-6 hrs on high OUTSIDE (smells up the RV too much). Big Salad and we do some purchased italian bread, cut opened and buttered, on the grill. What do you normally have for Easter dinner? We do the same thing at Thanksgiving. Crockpot works wonders, mac&cheese is good in one too. ew havetn doen an Easter cooking yet we are either leaving a campground to come home or we wait until tuesday after to head out. randy

RE: The 'Deviled' is in the details

boiled, peeled, cut in half, yolks blended with mayonaise and mustard to the right taste. I like mine with more mustard, the wife likes more mayo. (I could eat them with sweet relish the wife no way. a little off track here) but then add a little vinegar to that mix with black pepper. mix it all together and place into cut egg halves. top with some paprika for added color and flavor. We have a friend who eats them like candy, at Thanksgiving his wife makes 4-5 dozen eggs into deviled eggs. Thats a lot of work.. randy Must be an NC thing - love mine this way, too. Mayo, mustard, just a little vinegar, salt to taste. Sprinkle paprika on top! Kin can't get enough of them. Requested at every family get-together. my mom is from SC and my wife is NC born & raised. They make them alike. You're in eastern NC So i know you like that vinegar based food.

RE: Griddle For Camp Chef Question

I just looked at these this weekend at CW and priced them on the interweb too. Nice addition to your cookware. if you have double burner why not two plates or the larger one other than cost. BUT i have friend who bought a flat grill from Lowe's last year and that thing is the bomb.very nice to griddle on.. I want to burn a ribeye but so far all we have cooked was burners and dogs. Its nice so I thing the ones that go on the double stove would be too. randy

RE: Opening Day Jitters

i have spent the last two weekends un winterizing my 5er.we have a trip planned soon. Stated by opening it up after being closed for the last two months once the weather turned cold I shut it down. It was open through Christmas but then closed up. I started the Frig as I had a problem last year that cost me a few hundred dollars and I wanted to make sure that was working. I ran some heat and started dusting the wood cabinets & vacuumed the carpet, pulled the coffee maker out and made me a pot to see it was working. This past week I started cleaning the bathroom area and bedroom. Same thing dust, vacuum and so forth. Sunday I washed the exposed ends from under the Rvport. Ready to wax those this week some time as the weather holds. Just take your time and follow a list that you can find on most websites. randy

Just in case its Harley Bike week we are staying.. randy

RE: I wouldn't believe this one... parked car hit me!

This is why I have a dash cam. In this case it would show that the truck was not there as you approached. I just put one on my truck after the Christmas holidays. I had some Christmas money and for around $50.00 thought it was nice toy to have. Its neat to go back and watch the videos on it. I did upgrade to a 32G mini card. My Son In law did the same thing except the van was parked across from his site and it was our friends van. His Camper peeled it like a can opener. Lucky it was only around $2k damage and he paid it out of pocket. That just about ruined his and my daughter's vacation. happened at Ocean lakes CG. randy happens more than you think.

RE: Metal carport for 5th wheel questions

http://i.imgur.com/wzTNzTHl.jpg mine is 41X16X12. enclosed down the one side, I paid right around $3600.00 installed(tax,tip and some extra work the installers had to do to get it to fit around my house carport..)I had to pay for 18' wide rvport but it was customized to fit the 16' space I had to install it..also paid around $350 for some extra crush and run gravel. I have since installed a 3' panel on the left hand side to keep sun off that side of the camper. I am looking at installing at least a half gable end on the back side, wish I had done it in the beginning. TNT carport out of Mt. Airy, Nc. Carolina Carport is also in Mt. Airy, NC both run online sites for sales and installs. hope this helps you. randy

RE: Va i77 campground

I would stay at the KOA in Fancy Gap, VA just off I-77 before you go down the mountain into NC. ITs an easy to get to from the highway and you are right at the Blue Ridge Parkway the campground buffs up to it. Not much else around there. A few service stations right at the highway and maybe one restaurant in fancy gap. We go up there when its hot in the summer in central NC to escape the heat and humidity. randy
