RE: Transmission is Toast

When we had our motor home we purchased a 2016 Fiesta with a five speed. I looked at the automatic's seriously. What kept me from going auto was I knew of a couple of folks who had the same trouble you did. For some reason whether it was operator error or equipment failure their transmission slipped out of neutral as well. I do know that Ford did not honor the warranty of the two individuals either. The procedure is very specific and I guess Ford always thinks it is operator error when it may not be.

RE: Hooking up Fifth Wheel

You should be fine but I advise to ALWAYS do a quick pull test. I have been pulling fivers for many years and always take a few moments to do a pull test. Some folks argue that if the hitch is engaged properly by visually looking at it you are good to go. But I have seen fivers dropped into the bed with not so pretty results. It is cheap insurance.

RE: Ozark resort

I appreciate the info. We are thinking about TR state park. According to the website you cannot make reservations until the 6 month mark. We don't care too much about being real close to the strip but don't want to be too isolated either.

RE: Any of you guys winterizing with air only?

As you can tell everyone winterizes the way they feel is best for them. I don't care how you use air, air pressure will short circuit water. It will blow out the water ok when the lines are full but once it drops to about 1/2 or less in the lines the air will blow over it. I always drain everything and then run the antifreeze in. It is really cheap insurance for a very expensive rig. I do use air for my ice maker though. I disconnect the inlet water feed and use pink stuff up to that point. I then push the water out carefully BUT my frig stays plugged in all year and the rv is sheltered. I have a ceramic electric heater in it set at 32 degrees just for an extra margin of safety. As I said to each his own.

RE: Need an Overnight stop off I-95 near Walterboro SC

Another vote for New Green Acres. We stay there each time we travel to Florida. Only thing about this cg is if it has rained a lot, it is a little muddy, not overly so, but wet. If you do stay there be aware that travelling south on I-95 when you exit the entrance to the cg is almost immediately on the right as you leave the stop sign. You will turn right at a hotel. It is easy to miss.

RE: Winterize or Not

The weather can change overnight. Since you are closer to the mountains than I am I would definitely winterize. Running the rv antifreeze is not costly nor difficult but replacing plumbing is a hassle. While looking at the average temp or historical temps is a good start it still does not count for the extreme changes NC can see. I keep my fiver under a shelter and it is a four season. I run antifreeze thru mine each year. Just my two cents.

RE: Ozark resort

I appreciate the info from the majority of the suggestions. It is like I said sometimes the pics and info owners put on the cg websites are a little misleading. Be safe travelling.

Ozark resort

Is the Ozark Resort on Table Rock Lake worth the extra dollars they charge for sites? Sometimes the internet does not accurately describe a cg (tongue in cheek comment)! We are planning a trip to Branson and the surrounding areas. They are a lot of cg's in that area and I was just wondering.

RE: Pets riding in trailer

It would be a last resort to have any of our pets ride in a crate in garage of our Toy Hauler. This little rescue dog is with us. It was literally at deaths door. We are it's last stop. There is no giving it back. We will work out the riding situation in the truck. Who knows maybe in a few months they will all be riding in the same crate... I think it is great you rescued the dog. What you are saying above is really the best solution. Dogs are different than livestock and the way we show them love and affection comes back threefold. I am sure with time, love and patience he will come around.

RE: RV parks near Geogretown, Ky

Whispering Hills for sure. It is a very nice and quiet cg.

RE: Correct inflation of trailer tires

I too have been rolling for 30 + years. Always run max pressure in the trailer tires. I currently run 110 in the OR but those tires are G rated. Served me well.

RE: Traveling with a Residential Fridge?

Our res frig runs 7 days at week all year. When we are travelling the truck keeps the inverter battery charged. Never have had a problem. We were at a cg recently that lost power due to a storm. The inverter kept the frig running perfectly for a few hours. I elected not to have a generator since we never dry camp. If something ever happened and the cg power was off for an extended time, I would just hook up the power cord to the truck and charge the battery that way.

RE: Air Ride Pin Box

I experimented with mine until I found the best riding inflation point. Mine has the arrows and the inflate to this point sticker still on it. However I have found that I don't need the max pressure. I expect you will find that point to with time. I have a onboard air compressor too.

RE: going from Class A to TT or Fifth wheel

We went from a fiver to a dp class a and after a few years went back to a fiver. You asked what to look for but that is more of a personal choice. We went to a 40 foot fiver with res frig, large kitchen and much more room than a motor home offers. I would make sure the fiver you look for has the auto leveling system with the auto reconnect and 6 point system if applicable, washer dryer, and whatever else you want/need. With that being said make sure your tow vehicle is capable of pulling what you like BEFORE you buy. Again it is a personal choice but at least go apples to apples when you trade as far as amenities.

RE: Temp monitor for when leaving dogs in RV

If folks would read post BEFORE they post they would see why replies say what they say. As for leaving home we have a cloud cam here with a mifi as well. Not that them barking here makes any difference anyway. The original poster wanted to know what works. The temp stick and a cloud cam with dedicated wifi connection works every time.

RE: Temp monitor for when leaving dogs in RV

I would not worry too much about post like one you have received in regard to leaving your dogs. We have a temp stick and a Amazon cloud cam that works off a mifi Verizon. Not only does the temp stick alert us to a humidity, temp or connection lost on our smart phones, the cloud cam gives us real time video and audio for our dogs. We can talk to them or hear them if they bark. I just love it when someone says they hear our dogs bark when we leave them and I can pull out my phone and say here is the recording where do you hear them barking. By the way, ours do not bark UNLESS someone comes to the door and knocks.

RE: So, how does Highland Ridge Open Range rank?

As you already know you will get a lot of opinions. Most of them will be the ones who have had problems. We sold our dp motor home and went back to a fiver. It came down to Grand Design or Open Range. During our touch and feel period the difference was a mute point. The OR 3x had the insulation we wanted, quality and most importantly the floor plan. I would buy another and recommend it.

RE: Fridge on propane while driving

I have ran it for years and many miles. As you can see everyone has a opinion on it. Some folks replace bearings every year, some don't use their bathrooms, and some folks only cook outside. Just do what you feel comfortable with. Take from all the replies what you would like.

RE: East Tennessee

We have stayed at Anchor Down. While it is nice, it is very hot and not a lot of shade. Mostly asphalt. We go to Up the Creek cg. It is just outside of P Forge and a easy drive to the areas desired. It is also as country as you can get in that area.

RE: Leveling and turning on your refrigerator?

Normally I resist posting on threads like this one but I have to. A frig does not have to be shut off when travelling unless you go thru a tunnel or some type of enclosure. There is generally a mandantory stop to be inspected prior to entering if that the case. The constant movement back and forth when in motion does not affect nor hurt the frig. You also do not have to shut off prior to filling the tow vehicle. If so then folks on cell phones, cigs hanging out their mouths would be in trouble. We have pulled over the country when we had a propane frig and other than the tunnels never ever had a problem. When setting up for a stay then yes you need to be fairly level but off a little bit either way is not a big deal.
