RE: Noah"s Arc

Takes a very small net, but what to use for bait?

RE: extension ladder to get to roof? How to protect roof edge?

I use foam "Noodles", too. I cut to length at about 12", then split lengthwise to slip them over the edge of the ladder that would be in contact with the edge of the trailer roof.

RE: 2 problems 1st time out. Please help.

IMHO, the X-chock stabilizes only the wheel and axle components, while some movement might occur fore and aft to the jacks. Some newer "ultra-light" units are spreading the axles further apart, making the X-chock impossible to use. I recommend highly the Eliminator Strut Stabilizer System. These are engineered to stabilize the jacks to the frame, with the simple physics of cross-bracing at the corners. As the name implies, it seems to eliminate all the shaking/wobbling while set up in camp. We used, with great success, a set on our previous Jay Flight, and have a new set waiting to be installed on our new Jayco White Hawk It is available through Camping World, Catalog Item # 35782, Internet SALE $359.99 SAVE $40.00 Reg $399.99 FREIGHT : Add $40.00 - See more at: http://www.campingworld.com/shopping/item/the-eliminator-strut-stabilizer-system-set-of-6-struts/35782#sthash.cjC6rpCU.dpuf I was interested in a set of these but I thought I read that the strut stabilizers could not be used with electric stab-jacks. Are these a different product or have you found that they work fine with power stabilizers?... or, do you have crank-down stabilizers? Mine are the crank-down jacks, although I do use an 18V battery-powered drill. You must loosen the T-screw mechanism before lowering or raising the jacks, I wonder why you couldn't use these with the electric stab-jacks? Customer service was very helpful when I called regarding my first set, I'm sure they could address your concerns.

RE: A reminder for those who sanitize the water system.

but its harder to get the bleach odor out. Refill the tank and add a half cup of baking soda and pump through the system. Let it sit a couple of hours and then drain and fill. The bleach odor is gone! Yupp, baking soda works for us, too. . . been doing this for 14 years and 3 TTs.

RE: Sanitize freshwater

After the bleach sanitizing, I flush with a full tank of fresh water, then refill the fresh water holding tank with 1 cup of baking soda mixed in, then flush again. This removes all trace of the bleach taste.

RE: Disabled Travel Trailer on a Flatbed?

Our Jay Flight was T-boned by a car last October, bent both axles and tore tires off the rims on the off side. Since TT was obviously going to be totaled, and couldn't be towed, no choice but to watch it winched forward onto the tilted flat-bed. Everything inside the TT fell to the rear between the loading and unloading at the salvage yard. What a mess! TT clearance was 11'3", trailer bed another 3-4'. Tow-driver was familiar with the area and knew he would have to take exit/entrance ramps to by-pass 3 of the 4 overpasses on the route. I hope the flat-bed isn't your only option.

RE: "Log Cabin" TT

Similar park models were in use, several years ago, at a SW Pennsylvania ski resort, providing housing for seasonal employees from Venezuela.

RE: I wanna camp

Yeah, it's cold here in SE Ohio and SW PA. TT's are winterized and parked for the winter. Time to get out the skis and head for the mountain slopes!!!

RE: Always one out there that ruins your weekend

The Ohio state police will make several slow drive-thru's every night in the state parks. That would have never happened. Thank you Ohio! I think you mean Pa. State police. Ohio doesn't have state police, only highway patrol and have little authority off the highway system. That's what we have sheriffs for. But I do agree that they wouldn't allow that at a state park. They will usually complain if you even have a tire off the drive. On the contrary, OHP has jurisdiction on all state-owned/managed property, which does include State Parks. Only a few years ago, our local SP had 3-4 SP Rangers patrolling on-duty every day. Now, due to severe budget cut-backs, we saw only one ranger doing a slow drive-through on three of the seven days we camped this past week. One OHP cruiser did drive through one morning, in place of the Park Ranger service. We also witnessed inexcusable, loud, and obnoxious behaviors from "campers" on a near-by site. They clearly exceeded the 6-person limit on the site, tent/awning pegs only 4 inches (seriously) from the street, openly drinking beer (possession prohibited in Ohio SP), and literally throwing (imagine a football pass) trash across the road and into the woods. Their camping "trailer" and tents were obvious reasons why some campgrounds deny access to dilapidated equipment. How "normal" human beings could crowd themselves into that filthy, small space was mind-warping.

RE: Things that go Crash in the night! (Or day). Share yours?

Hickory nuts, with their green hulls, make more than a little racket. Imagine a half-sized golf ball.

RE: When was the last time?

Only one incident in an amusement park resort CG, late 90's. We discovered two "Lunch-able" packs had been taken from our cooler, sitting outside our pop-up, under the canopy. Nothing else in the cooler was missing. I had seen two young boys, about 10/11 years-old, cruising around the CG with their little red wagon, eyeing up and pointing out various camp sites. After reporting the loss to the CG security, we watched the same two boys, and their parents, come walking from the nearby hotel complex, the boys brazenly pointing out our site to the parents as they made their way to the amusement park entrance. One can only wonder as to the parents' involvement in the up-bringing of these two "future citizens"???

RE: How many people have never drank water from the tank?

we use the tank water all the time. we have 2 filters and we sanitize it with bleach once in awhile. X2 One-half cup of baking soda, flushed through the hose and into my 60 gallon fresh-water holding tank neutralizes the chlorine taste left after the sanitizing process. I let this sit overnight, then run it through the lines, drain, and refill for normal use. When hooked up to CG water, I use a Culligan water filter on the hose, and a Brita filter on the kitchen faucet. No reservations about using the tap water for cooking, coffee, or drinking.

RE: Happy Hills Campground near Hocking Hills Ohio

we usually go to Top Of The Caves, close to several trails x2 We have stayed here twice, in 2002 and 2012, the first to celebrate our oldest son's high school graduation and college transition. Our stay last summer, another memorable trip, was during the "dereche" wind storm, just before July 4th. The winds knocked down trees, knocked out power, and blocked the roads. Because the power was out, the CG's well water could not be pumped to the site hook-ups, nor the CG toilets. The CG owners/managers couldn't even call their in-coming camping guests to warn them of the problems. Although we were "trapped" in for a day or so, we counted ourselves among the lucky ones, no damage from fallen trees or limbs, 2 12-volt batteries, and a half tank of fresh water on board.

RE: Looking for campground on Mohican River, Loudonville, OH

Also on this forum, check out the postings under "Rallies, Shows, and Gatherings", and click on the "Mohican Rally, August 2-4, 2013". This is the Ohio Rally Group's annual gathering at one of the private CGs along the river. I'm sure any of these fine members could give more info on their personal favorite CGs found throughout this popular area.

RE: Looking for campground on Mohican River, Loudonville, OH

We've stayed at Mohican Adventures, just up the road from Mohican SP. A short walk across the highway puts you at their canoe/kayak livery, arrangements can easily be made at the CG office. Facilities also include putt-putt golf and a go-cart track. A zip line is located nearby. Do a search, Google, Bing, Woodall's, etc. for the Loudenville / Mohican area for other facilities. Several other private CGs are located on the "Wally Road" paralleling the river, most with their own canoe/kayak livery. Some are nicer than others, but all are very adequate. Most do not offer sewer hook-ups, due to the close proximity to the water table of the river ecosystem. One CG even hosts a Native American Pow Wow in the summer. Be forewarned, the further you drive on this road, the more narrow and dusty it becomes. Mohican Adventures is perhaps the easiest to find, right off the main highway.
