RE: Can a total RV newbie be a campground host?

For learning the driving and the basic systems management, a couple of hours at the most. Remember, first-timers buy or even rent these things and get by just fine with the very brief introductions from the dealers. The people-management skills that you used as a teacher, coach, and realtor are much more relevant for camp-hosting than your RV skills. You aren't going to be expected to drive anybody's RV or help them with it. When I graduated from tent camping to a Class C, it was just heaven!

RE: Thousand Trails

... When you make a reservation you do not get a site assigned. When you arrive at a campground (with one or two exceptions) - you get told - drive around and choose your site. ... When you arrive, are you able to find out which specific sites are available so you can check the specific sites, or do you have to literally drive around and find one? If you have to just find one, how can you be sure that a site is vacant, vs occupied by a Class B that's just out for the day? If you're one of those B's, how can you be sure nobody will take your site (by accident of course)?

RE: Parking options this Sunday in Jersey city area

Have you checked on whether you can park in the commuter lot right there at the marina? It would be empty on a Sunday.

RE: cleaning out black tank and toilet bowl

The "Geo method" worked great for keeping the sensors functioning on my 15-year-old black tank. But even that doesn't "freshen" and "deodorize" as the OP requested. I have to agree with the other posters who say that those are not reasonable goals.

RE: walmart overnight parking

I always call ahead, as noted earlier you never know when a policy has changed due to anything from new local regulations or maybe parking-lot repaving. But I don't understand this insistence on talking to the "manager." Surely he or she has better things to do, and surely all the employees know their store's policy. I just call the store's phone number and ask the person who answers the phone, "Does your store allow overnight parking for customers who have RVs?" This has never gone wrong.

RE: Rain in forecast not sure what to do

A surprising number of posters haven't noticed that the OP said, "im going you convinced me" yesterday afternoon.

RE: Rain in forecast not sure what to do

Hi, neighbor! I'm so glad to read that you've decided to go. Remember that in addition to the 50% chance of rain, there's also a 50% chance that the weather forecast around here will change completely every 24 hours. And also a 50% chance that the afternoon weather will be completely different from the AM forecast. Just be prepared for any combination, including walking or biking with sun overhead and mud underfoot.

RE: Expectations of a Newbie

… We are thinking about a 25' Class C without a toad….. Would it be unreasonable to unhook everything to go to a restaurant or maybe go sightseeing and then hook back up upon return? … . I've done exactly what you plan to do, and I found it perfectly do-able. A smallish Class C can find a place to park in most parking lots (stores, restaurants, etc.) or even park on the street. I used mine as my suburban daily driver for a year! You won't have to "un-hook everything" if you don't hook up everything in the first place. Your RV will come with tanks for fresh water as well as waste: To stay mobile, use those and only "hook up" for a few minutes to fill or empty as needed, every few days. Just plug in the electric, and maybe not even that for an overnight. Enjoy!
