RE: New style entry steps

has anybody considered having to make a quick emergency exit in case of fire etc. with the steps in/up? bumpy The steps would never be in/up if you are inside the trailer. Some trailers have two doors, like mine. some trailers have one door.like mine. of course if I had a second door, it might be located on the bathroom wall so we could all pass thru there entering and exiting. bumpy

RE: New style entry steps

is there a video of these in use anywhere? from looking at the pictures it seems that this "step ladder" is hinged up into the door opening and then the door is closed. bumpy Here - You Tube thanks, sure that isn't somebody's idea of a joke? drag that dirty/wet/unwieldy thing in and out. might be useable on a 5er or TT but not on a motorhome. bumpy

RE: New style entry steps

My concern is this. (I do not have them by the way) Sometimes when I'm parked my steps are actually touching the ground. other times it's a "Big step" to the first step. With those "new style" you are going to end up with tilted steps (not flat) and it can be very tilted.. In fact if the entry side of the RV is high enough you are climbing a ladder not a stairway. sounds like a bad idea to me. bumpy

RE: EZ-Pass?

Question can we just pay the toll as we drive through? Don't want something that I have to keep a minimum balance on. We probably won't be through those states for a long time. some roads are ezpass only, and there may be times that they are unmanned. IIRC my "deposit" was $25 and whenever my balance dipped below $15 they would raise it. bumpy

RE: Virginia I -81 corrider gas tax.

This cracks me up. Someone from PA, who travels I-81 in Virginia frequently, is "outraged" by our fuel prices? I'm pretty outraged by the condition of PA's roads when I try to drive up there, and their fuel prices are higher. Perhaps you'd rather pay a toll to travel 81, like I-77 through West Virginia? I always was apprehensive on the PA turnpike years back when the only thing between you and vehicles coming at you 7 ft away at 70 mph was some chicken wire. bumpy

RE: Please confirm what I think I already know

when running multiple heavy draw devices and everybody else in the park is cooking supper, running ACs, etc. you may be able to run stuff but check your voltmeter and you may be surprised that you are now running on 104/5 volts and not doing your devices any favor. bumpy

RE: Please confirm what I think I already know

with 30 amp service, I again quote a previous poster: "You do make a good point, the OP DOES need to learn to "manage" HEAVY loads. OP must learn to manually shed loads when a lot of heavy loads are needing to be used at one time." bumpy

RE: Please confirm what I think I already know

Yesterday was running air, water heater and micro. 30amp main blew. of course it did. bumpy Why do you say of course? RV should be designed for full load? Are you being sarcastic? Sorry can't tell. . to quote a post "YOU CANNOT USE 3 HIGH AMP APPLIANCES AT ONE TIME ON 30 AMPS WITHOUT BREAKERS TRIPPING OR YOUR CORD CONNECTERS HEATING UP AND MELTING THE CORD CAPS. bumpy

RE: home resort

Bumpy is correct that is what is known as the 125 mile rule. You are not allowed to use your reciprocal membership within 125 air miles of your home. Your home is defined as the address on your drivers license. That 125 mile rule only applies to classic resorts and it is from your home resort, not home address. so one should therefore select a home resort over 125 miles from an assortment of classic resorts at a reasonable distance from one's actual location? bumpy

RE: Virginia I -81 corrider gas tax.

Me personally, I'd much rather pay 7 cents more per gallon than have to deal with another toll. According to Wikipedia, I-81 through VA is only 325 miles long. Unless a vehicle gets really bad gas mileage or has a really small tank, it should make it through VA without having to fill up. That being said, I am pretty sure, even with the additional 7 cents tax, that MD and NC will still have higher gas prices than the gas stations along I-81 in VA. -Michael totally correct. what is the ave. cost per gallon? still less in VA. bumpy

RE: EZ-Pass?

. You have to preload a minimum of $35.00 and maintain that amount. You add a credit or debit card and when the value drops below $35 it will automatically charge to get the balance back up to minimum. Dave these $$$ minimums, etc. vary among states. that is why I said to check out which state fits your needs. some even charge a monthly fee. bumpy

RE: EZ-Pass?

select the state you obtain the ezpass from based on fees, etc., I picked DEL myself. bumpy

RE: home resort

years back, somebody here said not to make your home park anywhere near your actual home. seems you are banned from using it at parks within X miles of the HP so you can't use it around your real home. bumpy
