RE: What's changed about camping?

Just wait until all the folks that just bought Rv’ s this year because of the pandemic get out here , most haven’t a clue about how To use the equipment they bought never mine campground rules or that the rules are for everyone! Have tried to assist a few but they know it all already and We have seen it in our travels . Next year there will be a lot of rv’s and gear for sale! It’s really a sign of our times unfortunately. I think it makes all the difference if you had previous generations teach you the proper way to do things in life as well as camping

RE: Roadside Food stops?

Get a copy of the next exit has everything at every exit list and Rv friendly spots listed There is also exit now , I prefer the paper back versions of these resources but they also have apps.

RE: Thoughts on slider awnings

They are great when new no need to brush off slides if your under trees with pine needles, pine cones , leafs or acorns however when they get older and stretched out they tend to flap in the wind and become annoying especially on a bedroom slide out . We currently have them because our unit came with them , they do make life easier, used to carry a ladder and brush to clean off all four slide on our last fifth wheel which did not have slide toppers. Now window awnings are very useful keeping the sun off the windows and helping keep cool as well as opening windows in the rain, we don’t have them but someday maybe.

RE: Disappointing test drive

We test drove a few gas A’s a few years ago and all handled like that and the salesman advised me there were aftermarket solutions, I said for the price I shouldn’t have To add equipment to a brand new motorhome! We then went to entry level pushers and with the 300 to 340 hp motors they felt like they couldn’t get out of their own way so we stayed with our fifth wheel for few more year and ended up in a TC are are very happy.

RE: Do you leave MH plugged in for power at home?

Depends on your inverter / charger , if you have a 3 stage that will adjust your charge rate and not boil off your batteries then it Should not be a problem leaving the power connected . If not then you would need to keep an eye on your batteries to prevent boiling off the water again that is if your running wet cell style batteries.

RE: Banks Electronic Exhaust Brake

Anyone should be able to do the install. It is a matter of routing a couple of wiring harnesses and plugging them in. The hardest part is getting to the plug on the transmission. It’s not that hard to install at all . I installed the banks speedbrake on my 2007 Chevy D\A myself but that said look out for your transmission to start leaking transmission fluid at the connector after the banks harness is installed , the internal side of that connector leaks around the pins and the internal harness has to be replaced to stop the leak , not a huge job but you do have to drop the pan to replace the harness if the pins start leaking after they are disturbed. In my research at the time I learned that it was very common for the fluid to leak past the pins after pulling the connector and reinstalling the banks harness. once the internal harness was replaced the leak stoped and the banks brake worked great for towing a 16k fifth wheel however depending on the settings you use the brake can be very aggressive , Mike

RE: Good Sam RA Leap!

Double the price, a reward for being a member renewing with them it’s cheaper to join another service and they all use the same contractors, you would think they would offer some incentives to keep the members coming back rather than charge more and have you jump ship ?

RE: Another Reason To Not Have Airbags

Sumo springs work well for us , no air lines and ours are fully disengaged when there is no load in the truck also fairly easy install as well .

RE: Refinancing an RV

We refinanced for a lower interest rate on a 1 1/2 year old fifth wheel back in 2009. We used the financial services that the good sams club offered at the time and the service was poor communication was awful and it took forever but we did get the lower interest rate same term which made a big difference back then not sure how difference you will see currently but good luck

RE: Winhall Brook COE campground VT

Last summer we saw a large DP crease three of his storage compartments trying to get over the bridge . That bridge has a lot of scars and victims but I have seen some very large DP’s and fifth wheels make it with no problem it’s all in the approach too the bridge coming down the hill ! Mike

RE: Winhall Brook COE campground VT

We go there often , all the water and electric sites are on the south side which is across the narrow bridge there are 28 sites with water and electric in a loop on the south side. There are some water and electric sites that are close to the river like across the street from the river but none right on it. The north side has some river side sites but No water or electric the complete north side is dry camping with one water supply a bathroom with showers and a pavilion. This place is still one of our favorite places to camp. You should be able to get over the bridge to the south loop with no problem with your 31 foot rig I used to get a 36 foot 5th wheel over it but it was a bit nerve racking. There is now a dump station on both the south and north sides and the roads have been paved. Mike

RE: Portable suitcase solar panels

Fixed panels are good out in the open but the suitcase setup lets you find the sun if your parked under trees ! Both have benefits .
