Very helpful. I assume all private parks and some very expensive which I don't prefer but good for many.

RE: Bringing extra fresh water.

Some RVs wouldn't handle that extra 600 lbs. very well.

RE: A Camp-Away-from-Quartzsite-with-SxS Question

Several years ago we set up at a wildlife refuge south of town as suggested by a ranger and drove into the chaos in town. Strictly park anywhere and dry camp. OK for a night or 2. Free.

RE: Sagging Slideout

I'd find a different shop.

RE: Sagging Slideout

No but I think yours needs attention immediately. I see bad things happening.

RE: Fresh water tank under camper-Camping in colder weather.

Seriously, you never drain the fresh water tank. I assure you there is a lever or valve somewhere to drain it. It would be dangerous to leave water in the tank indefinitely I would think; bacteria, etc. eventually. I drain mine after any use unless I'm going back out within a week or so. Re check the manual. Am I missing something? If a water tank is full, it would take a long long time of really cold weather to freeze it but not the case with water in the lines.

RE: furnace while driving

I don't think I have. I did fire it up once at a rest stop when it was very cold. Seems safer not to but not sure why except to avoid pulling up close while refueling. We do always leave our frig on running on propane so guess that would be the same risk.

RE: Anyone using a dishwasher in their caravan? Thoughts?

Can't imagine a dishwasher would be worth the bother. Be conservative with how many dishes you use, use paper plates, sometimes plastic silverware and have everyone do their own dishes if everyone is 5 or over.

RE: Short Term Winterising

It won't take much to be safe if the temps don't get below mid to upper 20s. The furnace or an electric heater (if you can plug in)set almost as low as possible.

RE: Horrible Good Sams/ Bank of the West Financing

I mean no criticism to anyone but seems like a good time to put in a plug for having a goal of being debt free. This would mean no RV, car or anything else unless it can be bought for cash. We 1st accomplished this around 15 years ago by using some savings/investments to pay off an ill advised home equity loan that had been used to buy a truck and 5th wheel. I begin to see that the loan was rediculous as we will never get it paid off before the value of the stuff is less than the loan balance. We've never looked back and have since purchased a 10 year old MH and 2 used cars; no loans. The benefit just multiplies because you can save or use all that cash that was going for payments and interest. We are seriously not wealthy so it is possible.

RE: Just wondering

Post not clear. What is a GD and do you plan to tow the truck behind it?

RE: insurance and roof leaks

Can't hurt to turn in a claim?

RE: Propane winterizing

Have never heard of winterizing the propane so I haven't in 40 years. No problems that I know of.

RE: health insurance

As a retired teacher, I am not eligible for social security because we did not pay into it except for a small amount from pre-teaching work. But we did pay a small amount so as to be medicare eligible which I am.

RE: health insurance

I am retired and have good coverage from a state run system for teachers. It is a merging of the state system and medicare. Definitely not free. The medicare part is around $100/month and the state part is maybe 200 or so. My wife is covered under the same system but not subsidized so our total bill must be over $400. Also, there is considerable out-of-pocket. Not complaining considering the medical care we've had. I think we could come close to the premiums with something like blue-cross but without some of the guaranteed coverage and unlimited amount, etc.

RE: Costs of things

I wasn't trying to make much of a point but mainly just sharing my observations. I do think it's misguided when folks talk about one motor home getting better mileage than another. The cost of fuel, even at 9 MPG, say compared to 14 MPG is negligible in the overall issue of total costs. this thinking helps me accept the $70 I might spend on a fill.

RE: More campers than parks

Campgrounds do seem way more crowded than when we started in the 70's; however, I think your problem is probably pretty local. Campgrounds in large parts of the country aren't that loaded. The problem with beautiful areas with lots of attractions is that everyone wants to go there. We snowbird in Fl. and on the Gulf coast every winter but we have to reserve way ahead and go to parks that are inland and northern Fl. Still lots of great places.

Costs of things

During our 40 years of camping; recently in a used 30 ft. Class C, we have always been cost conscious about everything from the purchase price of the RV to campground fees. But after totaling up the massive amount of money we've spent on this 15 year old MH over 7 years just on repairs, etc.(actually the depreciation on it isn't too bad) I think we need to put some costs in perspective. For example whether we pay $15 or $35 for a night or spend an extra $100 on gas it's all peanuts compared to all the costs of the motor home. Next time someone tells you how cheap they can travel in an RV, tell them to add in all the cost referred to above.

RE: Questions about pulling a fifth-wheel with a half ton TV

I think that "80% rule" exist to provide some room for error. For example, most people don't actually weigh their trailer loaded so they may think that it's withing the tow rating when it actually isn't. Or, maybe the truck is aging and parts are worn. Do I really want to tow 100% of the rating? Not sure. If I want to keep it forever, maybe it will last a little longer with a liter load. The 80% isn't written in stone.Just to suggest liter better than heavier.

RE: RV Antifreeze

For 30 years, I've used any anti-freeze labeled for RV and never had problems.
