RE: Electrical Question

Yeah, the units do go bad and I'd immediately replace one that acted squirrely. I've had one go bad and so has another family member. They're inexpensive.

RE: Modern Food?

I seem to remember a rule of thumb that you should eat where the truckers eat so even if it isn't any good, the scenery makes up for it. Eat hole in the wall local. We scout for cleanliness and then roll the dice if they can pass that test.

RE: how to level a trailer

The reason for leveling at all is to protect the fridge. Use the stick ons like said above and get it close. Rule of thumb is if you’re comfortable inside you’re close enough. It doesn’t have to be perfect. Keep this in mind regardless of which of the good methods folks in this thread are describing.

RE: New to the forum, new to TT's as well

Welcome to the cult! Remember that whatever you read anywhere, do what works for YOU. Theres an infinite number of ways/things in this lifestyle.

RE: Newbie from Alaska

If you find a true all season rig. PLEASE post it here. Floorplan is everything- I really cant add anything else except to agree with above posters.

RE: Is a cover necessary ?

I've done both. I don't bother with a cover any more. I do, however, religiously clean and caulk(that spreading kind) every year at least. If it looks like **** in between cleanings, who cares? Only a trucker is going to see the roof anyway, at best.

RE: Slides- Important stuff AND what they don't tell you.

I love my slide. It gives a sense of a lot more space than my TT actually has. Agree with the others saying you need to learn how your slide system works, how to operate it manually (or with a drill), and do a basic temporary repair in case its ever needed. Theres some great utube videos on all of those things. When we went shopping last, a Requirement was that we could use the bathroom and the kitchen with the slide(s) fully In. That's important for us to be able to grab some throne time or eat lunch while in transit to our next destination. TTs without that floorplan aren't an option for us. But remember to get whats important to You. oh, should also say that ive been camping many years and have never had a stuck slide problem.

RE: Camping around Christmas time

Christmas, Florida :B Unless you have an absolute need to go to the most southern part of Florida with all the humidity and mosquitoes. The best kept secret of the north central part of Florida is just knock down beautiful. Numerous crystal blue springs, rivers for kayaking or tubing 3 beautiful forests, etc. No matter which way you go it's less than an hour from the gulf or the east coast. google Rainbow Springs, Dunnellon, Crystal river, and include a 20/30 mile radius or so. AND there are a plethora of real nice CG's all around that are not sardine crammed with snowbirds. I Snowbirded in this area for a couple of years and never once made reservations ahead of time during peak season. Shhh, don't tell everyone about this place.:C This is a great area! The springs are incredible. Many of those springs are dive-able if youre scuba certified.

RE: Boycott “No Campfires”

We RVers need to Boycott places that don’t allow a special part of the camping experience...”campfires”. It’s bad enough that so many places don’t allow wood fires but not allowing propane campfires is beyond ridiculous. We carry in our RV a variety of equipment and supplies for a campfire and it’s so disappointing to not be able to use them and enjoy that experience. I own a small RV park and when we are in a burning ban I have had people cancel their reservation...”Really, we can’t have a campfire?...we will book another time” I will not book anymore places that don’t allow a campfire. My god, the Arrogance. How about you camp where you want and I camp where I want. Not everyone likes to camp the same way. Personally, I could care less about this issue. But the implication that Everyone should do as the OP prefers is just.........well, you know.

RE: Do Flea Collars Really Repel Pests?

Flea collars on a dog work by releasing their active ingredient into the dog via contact. The flea consumes the poison when it feeds on the dog. There is 'some' repellant effect, but it is minor compared the primary route. When using poisons, pay the extra (if needed) and use the bestest most correctest one.

RE: Traveling in Oregon

Upon further thought, I think that the case may be that potheads aren't necessarily a problem, but if you are in a bad area anyway, those kind of people are probably smoking pot and doing other drugs as well. Maybe this is the kind of bad area that the OP was referring to...?

RE: Traveling in Oregon

What I remember from college is that pot smokers tend to be mellow and drunks are where most of the problems come from. Like the poster above said, guard your doritos tho.

RE: Question for full timers...

2chiefsRus, great info! Thanks for sharing it. Can you estimate your average stay at a given CG? Days/weeks/months...? maybe also % of time you boondocked/etc?

RE: After thirty years of purchasing and five RVs later!!

I cant cite any bad experiences, but we always try to support our local mom and pops unless theres a reason not to. (eg, high markups, service, etc)

RE: What do you want in a campground?

For paid CGs, I want clean and good wifi. Enforcing sensible rules (quiet hours, etc) is a plus. I expect less of state parks but have often been pleasantly surprised.

RE: Tire cables or chains

Heartily disagree on the snarky 'bad life choices' comment. Some of us LOVE the snow and winter sports. Of course, you have to be careful and know the limitations of your rig AND yourself. Don't apply your standards to everyone elses' abilities.

RE: water water everywhere but not a drop to drink!

Yeah, link is intentionally buggered by youtube to prevent direct linking. Apparently, the inventors/users don't understand the concept of Solutions tho (from what I can discern of the orig post). Or have lower standards of hygiene than I do.

RE: Tennessee To South Carolina

By all that is holy, stay away from Atlanta. 40-26 is a good road.
