RE: Everglades and Big Cypress camping in Feb. - availability?

I just looked at Midway ( Big Cypress) in recreation.gov and see that pretty much all the tent sites are available for all of Feb.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Might as well replace the plug wires while you're at it. What borescope did you end up buying ? I want to pick one up to have in my arsenal of tools .

RE: Best Route through the Smokies

If it were me, I would take I-40. You definitely DO NOT want to take US 19 between Cherokee and Maggie Valley. US 74 from 441 just south of Cherokee to US 19 north of Waynesville is a good ride but you will wind up on I-40 regardless. I agree with above. 441 to Cherokee is full of gawkers and very tight turns and grades. 19 to Maggie Valley is not a good road for a coach, although I've been on worse, but certainly not fun. I-40 is the way to go.

RE: 1st RV Road Trip - Florida itinerary

Dial that way back. Seems like just a driving trip, guaranteed to leave everyone worn out and grouchy every day. If you're going to KSC and Canaveral, you need to be at Manatee Hammock, not the backside of Melbourne an extra hour away. Unfortunately, we do not have the luxury of time. I will try to dial back to much activity, but with kids in school, driving is part of the territory. We only have 9 nights. Thanks for suggesting Manatee Hammock. I think we can get in there. You say "see the springs at Juniper Springs", but you are going to paddle at Alexander Springs. I strongly advise if you only have time to paddle one or the other; make sure it is Juniper Springs. They both are beautiful spring runs, but Juniper is the best Thanks for your perspective. Another forum has a user who warns people off of canoeing Juniper. He claims it's too hard to navigate and frustrating for novices. Do you think a teenager paired with a capable adult in each of 2 canoes can enjoy the run at Juniper? I don't want to do both. Alexander was an alternative that we'd skip otherwise. I also suggest Juniper.... I don't feel that it's that difficult. You put in at the springs and go down the run and they pick you up and bring you back. The flow makes for an easy paddle

RE: Air brakes on Towed

I've been using a M&G for the last 5 years. Initial installation took me an hour or so. after that, it's just hook up the air line and go.

RE: Dually valve extenders

Another vote for Borg valves. They're not cheap, but I like the way they are stabilized and you don't have to worry about that extension connection where you can't see it! Same here--- had all kinds of problems with the braided extensions. Borg ( or similar) are the way to go

RE: Batwing Water Leak

Ours leaked a couple years ago. I just bought the repair kit and installed it. Quick job and it solved the leak. It comes with a new shaft that may need to be cut to match the thickness of the RV roof.

RE: Nothing For Nothing

Rut Roh!! Don't tell Cummins that the 10% program ended! Picked up my motorhome this afternoon after some major Onan generator issues and when presented with the bill I asked about the Power Club and the 10% discount, manager was like "oops" let me subtract that parts discount. Saved me over $300 today! Yep- the only reason I joined was the discount more than covered the membership fee.

RE: Gettysburg

If you haven't been there, the Seminary Ridge Museum is very interesting. It was used as a hospital and they have great displays of medical tools and procedures used back then.

RE: RV Park Reviews

DH used to post faithfully after every stay. That was a lot because we full time and move frequently. He said the new site is harder to use, they want pictures (which is nice, but much more time intensive). And they rejected one of his posts because he didn't say anything positive about the place. It was a dump and there was nothing good to say, but that didn't matter. So he no longer posts. Dale I also quit posting there as they did not publish a review of a place that I reviewed in a partially negative, but honest manner. I gave the park high marks for the rest rooms, voltage and water pressure and low marks for site size.flooded sites and staff attitude. When I questioned the admins about why they didn't include the review, they said they don't allow comments about staff . That was my last review , about 4 years ago. There are too many other HELPFUL sites available to waste my time with them

RE: Please help me choose between these two portable smokers

If you carry a grill with you already, you may want to consider the LizzQ. I have two of these, one for the house, one for the 5er to use in our Weber Q120. I have a Weber Smokey Mountain, and a pellet grill. Some call them pellet smokers, but they don't give much smoke flavor. I use the LizzQfor cold smoking cheese, smoking turkeys, briskets, etc. It really is turning to my go to for smoke. If I remember, you have a smaller rig, and the little tube takes up the space of an empty paper towel roll. Just the cardboard part. While in the RV I use a similar item- A-Maze-N smoking tube. Amazon and Home Depot have them. Works pretty good with the grill and as you say, easy to transport and store. At home I have a large Masterbuilt and big green egg. . A-Maze-N smoker tubes Bass pro shops have a great selection of various wood pellets.

RE: Hard baseball sized "bump" outside RV

You are lucky to be in Florida. Florida has some of the best consumer vehicle laws. I think the seller/manufacture gets 3 chances for repair and then must buy back. Richard The lemon law in Florida does not apply to the "house", it's only applicable to the chassis components and a few other things such as windshield and driver and passenger windows. Pretty much everything else like delamination, AC leaks, electric issues, furnace,refrig, etc. are not covered. The OP's issues would fall into that category.

RE: Stabil or Seafoam for long term gas can storage?

I use both stabil and seafoam-- sort of depends what I have on hand. I also use non-ethanol gas for my boats and other small engine toys. If I know I'm not going to use something for for a few months, I fill it with 100LL ( airplane fuel) I get at the local airport. I've had that stuff in one of my boats for several years and it fired right up.

RE: Charging electric car

There are exactly ZERO EVs rated to be towed 4 down. And nobody ever tows a vehicle that is not "rated" to tow? And unlike ICE vehicles where the transmission probably does not lubricate when driven from wheels, nobody has pointed out a mechanical reason a EV can not be towed. So I sent an email to Tesla to ask about their new pickup truck and if it will be towable 4 down behind our motorhome. First response from them was , what do you mean by towable 4 down ? Next email I explained how I tow my F150 behind our motorhome and wanted to know if the new cybertruck will support that. Their response was that none of there current vehicles could be towed 4 down as it would burn out the motor(s) , but they didn't have any information on the capability of the new truck. I responded that how could they be taking orders on a new vehicle when they don't even have specifications on that its' capabilities are. I imagine it will be the same-- no 4 down towing.

Mama Gerties, if you get a site at the top, or Bear Creek.

RE: Anyone gone on a Cruise?

We have been on many,many cruises across most cruise lines. For the past several years, we go exclusively on Celebrity as the food,service and atmosphere is, in our eyes, superior to the others.

RE: New RV TV show 11/17/19

Just finished watching it. Lots of commercials and very little of substance. I might give it one more try, but so far not very impressed. I agree-- I won't be wasting another 30 minutes of my time on that in the future.
