RE: Are damage deposits at parks customary?

A couple of things come to mind. If this is a place where each site has a power meter, then perhaps this is to insure the site user does not leave with a power bill unpaid. Is this place in trouble financially and is the deposit being used as a 'float' to keep their head above water? Depending on new come guests to cover the float when your refund is made.

Maybe true and likely is, but then I looked at the date this was posted

RE: Route around Atlanta

75 is the easiest. Go non-rush hour. You will find fairly regular traffic from 575 south to the perimeter. I will ease up there. Just keep off the right lane and certainly the left. Left lane will suddenly end up and ramp and then dead end on the bridge into the road crossing the interstate. Try to stay with the traffic and watch as far ahead as you can see. changing lanes constantly is not a good idea and some of our troopers working the traffic there will remind you. We have some interesting things in Atlanta, but nothing worth slowing down and getting hit from the rear when trying to see them.

RE: Route around Atlanta

RE: Surge Guard - Need Vs. Cost

Get the 50 amp Progressive portable model. If you change coaches you can take it with you. Mine is on a third coach

RE: Bryson City NC to Knoxville TN

IF (big if) you decide to go over the mountain, please consider those on the road with you. Use the multiple pull offs and let those following you get around. You will be 'slower traffic'. Distance wise, 441 is shorter by a great deal, time wise? Not so much. US 74 thru Waynesville to I-40 will get you there also. I have run both ways several times and prefer the 74 route simply because of the steepness on both sides of Newfound Gap and the very slow and congested traffic in the park. BTW traffic in Pigeon Forge pretty rough all the time but on weekends and holidays it moves like Atlanta on a bad day.

RE: Hook up those safety chains

I would have never thought that was possable. Wow, they got lucky. The Lord decided it wasn't their day Yes!

RE: Maine to Yellowstone

If you run I-90 west, suggest the Custer Battlefield (Little Big Horn River) just east of Harden Wyoming. Sad, yet very interesting and historic place. Not a lot of room for RV parking there, so suggest you either stay in Harden and toad back or TV back.

RE: Advice on concrete repair around pool

I would hire someone to come in with a concrete saw and have some expansion joints cut about and inch wide and depending on the length and width of the apron maybe in ten foot segments. Cut through all the concrete and then fill with something compressible and cover the last top inch (in depth) with a liquid rubber sealant

RE: Any option for re-filling MH Propane Tank from Small Tank?

Suggest you just do what is obvious and drive to the propane dealer and get the tank filled. You are going to end up with a lot of potential leaking joints, expense and trouble. Bite the bullet and get a lot more propane for a lot less risk and trouble.

RE: Moderna vaccine (Personal experiences)

My first Moderna shot gave me sore arm for a few hours. The second made me tired with a low fever and felt crappy for 48 hours. My wife had no problems except sore arms on both occasions. She had Moderna vaccine as well.

RE: mass elec. storage 'battery' rethink the term application.

Why is it necessary to copy/quote so much folks? None of you will change the other's minds about how you feel about a subject such as this. If you must state an opinion, do so and move on.

RE: Moderna vaccine (Personal experiences)

My second shot (Moderna) is due tomorrow morning. I scheduled early. That way I can take my Advil to counteract the pain that came with the first one.

RE: Navigation

My Garmin is old and cannot up-grade. Cell phone works well, but if we are going for a few days driving, a current road map to verify what the cell phone tells us is a must. Back country roads in the towed? Cell phone (until we lose a signal)

RE: Do you let you kids drive your motorhome

I had my youngest's husband start hinting around about the second coach we owned. He thought he was a truckdriver and since he drug a few cows to Texas a few years ago I should allow him to take our coach 'on vacation'. nope! I don't 'loan' that out. I did buy a 30 foot travel trailer for our three kids to use with their families. I finally sold it for lack of use. I did find the TV antenna folded wrong, accompanied with an oak limb once. Mr Trucker might have used it once. "I really want a motorhome" he said.

RE: Custer State Park

Question please. I will be coming into the park this summer on highway 19/385, and leaving on highway 16. Will I encounter any road issues like tunnels, etc? If you are coming in from the north, just don't make the mistake of going into Keystone and coming down 16A. Tunnels, narrow roads and a couple of pigtail bridges. Coming from Deadwood/Lead area you are fine. Hill City to Custer City is good. Little steep as you come into Custer City, so don't be in too much of a hurry. From Custer, you can leave east of west on 16, but 16A is not good in an RV. Rent or drive your towed and see the area around there. If you looking for a place to stay, Spearfish has a great park that is city owned and Very nice

RE: CDL Required to Drive Class A?

How many people do you know or have heard of that were cited for wrong class of license (who were operating an RV for leisure) ?? What states don't have reciprocity with other states in licensing (non-commercial vehicles?? I don't think you will find Joe from any state getting shut down in any other state because he has a MH with air brakes and that state requires a special license to drive with air.

RE: Custer State Park

we hosted two summers in Custer. Stockade N and Stockade S. We being from the South likely have different tastes from that part of the country. Truthfully we found very few dining places that we considered 'outstanding'. The Legion Lake cafe/dining room was pretty good for breakfast and lunch. There is a little cafe at a RV park just outside CSP toward Custer City called Wagons West (or similar anyway) The breakfasts are very good. There is a steak house style restaurant in Hill City that is supposed to be good, but the parking is very limited on the street there and there is always a crowd waiting outside. The only decent food we found in Custer City was the Purple Pie Place. They make their own pies and their own waffle cones for ice cream. There is a couple of mediocre restaurants in downtown Custer but nothing to write letters home about.

RE: Soot on Dinghy

Just wondering if it is indeed soot you are seeing? Could it be rubber from the tires of the many, many cars and trucks on the same road you travel on? I have owned three diesel coaches and never had a 'sooty' exhaust. We did have an odor on/in the towed that we figured out to be debris from the tires and road.
