RE: Another negative recommendation of an RV Park

We also have been to Whispering Pines. First visit with my parents in their TT, my DW, 2 sons, and I in our PuP, and brother, SIL, and two nephews visiting (Grandpa paid the fees). Another visit was an overnighter to break up our trip home from Chincoteague...didn't even unhook...no pets, no visitors, no issues. Thought this would be our go-to CG to visit brother's family, and as a mid-point for trips to Chincoteage/Assoteague. The next year, we called for reservations before leaving home, and were GRILLED about the breeds of the two dogs we were bringing with us. Our dogs are mixed breeds, and in our humble opinion calm and pleasant. They wanted to know what the breed mix was. We were told that if the larger dog, what we consider a huskey-mix, looked at all like a German Shepherd we would not be permitted to stay, due to their "dangerous breed" exclusion policy. My response was that if our vet couldn't tell for sure, how could one of their high school/college student employees at check-in have the supreme knowledge, or right, to label her as a "dangerous" dog, based only on visual inspection? Why should we risk the reservation deposit, only to possibly turned away at the gate, leaving us with no overnight accommodations? This happened about 4-5 years ago, Whispering Pines have been on our boycot list since, and was given an unfavorable report on rvparkreviews.com. When I informed them that we would never again consider giving them our business, I got a similar "Oh well" response. My brother later explained to me that the management was rumored to be catering to the seasonal campers, and knew they had something of a monopoly in being one of the few CGs located so close the I-70 interstate exits and the Baltimore area. Evidently they really don't care about individual boycots from those who are offended by their policies.

RE: Jayco Whitehawk ultra lite 24 ft

We're in our first year of use on a White Hawk 27DSRB. Shaking was very much a problem for us, too. Previous TT was a JayFlight 24RKS, cured the shakes with Eliminator Strut Stabilizers. Just installed same Strut Stabilizers on the White Hawk, with satisfactory results again. To make it even sweeter, the Eliminator Strut Stabilizers are now on an Internet-only special at Camping World.com!!! The Eliminator Strut Stabilizer System - Set of 6 Struts Catalog Item # 35782 This Item is In-Stock and Ready to Ship Internet-Only Special Internet SALE $249.99 SAVE $150.00 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.zyf0wEl7.dpuf I don't think the X-chocks will work on the White Hawk, due to the widespread axle placement.

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: 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.
