RE: Cleaning the side

What make Class B do you have. I don't know of any that have fiberglass sides. My question also.

RE: Replacement mattress

RE: Lights on?

doxiemom, I couldn't agree more. If they want to leave their outside lights on all night, then sit outside all night. I wouldn't object. If they sit inside, turn those lights on. I drive miles to enjoy the serenity of the woods and the stars at night.

RE: Charcoal questions

I would have to say a definite yes, or rather a MUST, on the Kingsford charcoal. Being a B camper I know the value of space, that's why I would recommend something likethis. Granted it is expensive and I didn't pay that. You can find this type on the web for all sorts of prices. I had a friend in the HVAC business cut 4 pieces of sheet metal to my specs with air hole in the bottom, bought a 4' piano hinge. Cut it to 12" lengths and pop-riveted it together. Cut an old BBQ grate to fit inside, with stops. Then made a folding handle. A lot of work but fun. Just to see if I could do it. Turned out great. My other suggestion would bethis grill. We bought the complete package with the propane adapter and love. We like to dutch oven cook so it is great. A really nice grill and with the propane attachment and 12"cast iron skillet is an excellent (fish) fryer.

RE: Memorial Weekend

Avoiding the masses and staying at home with our new RecTec Pellet smoker, a couple of 1-1/2" thick pork chops brined in curing salt, molasses, brown sugar & herbs with a Yeti full of adult beverages while plotting our route to hit the hard cruel road in a couple of weeks. Gotta love it!

RE: Time for a new Laptop

I know many would disagree and have their reasons. I am a retired graphic artist and as they say a "mac head". DW wife has had three PC's. Vista, Windows 7 & 8 and never anything but trouble. Granted, I'm a machead and don't know a thing about fixing a PC. Bit the bullet and bought her a Mac Book Pro. Very pricey, but my life has become much easier. For what it's worth.

Thinking of upgrading our basic "B" to a B+ or even a C. Never having one before, a fridge that is, I was wondering what type is the best unit to get. I think most units are AC/DC. OK I get that. There is also a propane/AC/DC unit available. What is the advantage of either and how do you regulate their usage? If I'm driving down the road and the fridge is running on propane or DC, or whatever?, how or when does it switch to shore power when I arrive at a campsite? Is that the most economical/efficient way to operate? So much to learn.

RE: Walmart etiquette?

Hmmm? Let's see, Walmart etiquette! Isn't that and oxymoron?

RE: Dry camping and power supply

With all this charging and using (discharing) of the batteries, what is the average life and replacement cost of such a battery. I realize that is a difficult question to answer, but say you use your system 16 weeks out of a year. Run down to 50% and recharge each time daily. Have your unit in storage the remainder of the year. Can I expect the battery(ies) to last more than one season? Sorry if this is a silly question, but I know nothing about batteries, generators, not solar panels. thanks

RE: Quick overnight stops in route

darsben, You're a brave soul! Apparently your DW doesn't read your post. :)

Solar panels

Solar Panels? Are they really worth it? We don't boondock much mainly cause we've become electric dependent. But thinking of upgrading our unit and getting one with a generator/solar panels. State/Corp parks (our main stays) have become so popular, that reservations are almost needed. That's not our our style, we like to wing it. Don't like to make reservations for several reasons. A. We're retired, schedules ain't us no more! B. Plans and destinations change as does the weather. C. We like to explore and try new campgrounds. Don't want pick a site from a brochure or website. Research to your hearts content, it's never as advertised. So our thoughts were to leave the maddening crowd, state & corp parks, and head to the toolies, but, ahha, need power!

RE: Quick overnight stops in route

DW refuses to "wing it" and stop at a Wally World, Flying J, or anywhere else besides a campground. And if momma ain't happy....... X2

RE: Goose Pt COE CG, Bassett,VA

Thinking about trying Goose Point this June. Don't have reservations, cause we might make it or we might not. Our plan is to spend some time at/near Fairy Stone SP looking for fairy stones. Goose Point appears to be a much more appealing campground for us, B campers. Our goal is to find fairy stones and find a nice place to eat. By this point into our trip, we'll need a break. Any suggestions on how/where to do either and/or both?

RE: Vicksburg and Natchez, MS. What to visit?

Don't miss Mammy's Cupboard, south of Natchez. Very small, but excellent home cooking food at decent prices. It was a must stop for us.

RE: Decatur Illinois Camping

Give this site a try. Doesn't show all the private campgrounds, but is pretty complete: USCampgrounds

RE: WiFi Hot Spot

Take the verizon. At Hocking Hills you will get a decent signal, At Mohican..not so much since the park is kind of in a bowl surrounded by forest. You can get txt and make a call but internet is not going to work there, if at all. Thanks a bunch, that's the kind of info I was looking for, site specific. Thanks all for you input.
