RE: Nicest?? CG in or near Bar Harbor

I would stay in Arcadia NP itself either Blackwoods or Seawall CG's.Seawall is easier to get into without a reservation mid week.Not really sure the OP's 41ft 5er + F350 would fit in either of those, we barely fit with our 29" Class C w/toad & dolly. Plus those CG's are closed That is too bad, was hoping to get up there this season. Like most NP's they have fewer sites for larger RV's, I had no problem with my Class A with tow car in either CG. Web site says "Backwoods will open no sooner than Aug 1st", but Seawall is closed for the season. Looks like most of the hiking trails are open as well as the park loop road,but some areas will remain closed. Yes , the hiking trails are open as are the carriage roads. We've been out every day for the last couple weeks. Most people are following guidelines and when you approach someone on the trail, pull up your mask and move to the side.

RE: Overnight stop near Atlanta

We've used Forsyth KOA and Atlanta South RV Park for overnights will traveling thru the area. Both adjacent to I-75. I find Atlanta South to be easier to maneuver in and flatter sites, but the KOA is OK too.

RE: Generator only runs if engine is on

What Doug said----- I had an issue where the genset would die after a bit.... it was throwing a fuel pump code. After looking into things, I found that the battery cable that ran 40 ft or so from the chassis battery to the genset wasn't securely attached and would result in an open circuit thus shutting down the genset due to the fuel pump not operating. See what code the genset is indicating and start our PD from there. Good luck

RE: Help with a site North of Tampa

Since you are going to Moffit, I would suggest the RV park at Lazy Days or Hillsborough River State Park. Bay Bayou RV Resort between Tampa and Clearwater may be an option as it's not a bad drive to the beach or into north Tampa. Quail Run is in Wesley Chapel which is a short drive to Moffit... I haven't been there so have no first hand info

RE: Are campgrounds more crowded or is it just me?

We are in Maine now and the CG we have stayed at for the last 10 years that is normally booked solid, is maybe 10% occupied.

RE: Under cabinet coffee maker?

My primary concern with the “beneath the cabinet” coffee makers is that....the steam from the maker is very hard on the cabinetry above. Many years ago, we damaged our home kitchen cabinet.... never again! memtb I put a piece of plexiglass on the top of the coffee maker that slid out when making coffee to avoid that problem. To the OP, here's a look at options, not sure which ones might still be available. Mountable coffee makers

RE: I90 fuel islands in Massachusetts

Flyng J, Loves and T/A all generally have big auto islands as well as truck islands depending on your fuel needs. J's usually have dedicated RV lanes that have both Gas and Diesel. I'm parked across the street from one of the newest LOVE's in the nation (St. Clair MI) and they are not putting in RV parking slots and of course very easy access to both gasoline and diesel pumps. I'm pretty sure that I-90 in Mass has no other fuel stops besides the service plazas. I think all or most are Gulf stations with car and truck islands. Correct on the service plazas -- I drove I-90 yesterday from NY. Fuel( diesel) at the Service plazas was $.15/gallon cheaper than the Flying J just before you get on I-90 in NYS

RE: I90 fuel islands in Massachusetts

If you are diesel, the truck lanes are ok. No problem and the prices were OK>

RE: Length of time diesel fuel stays good in tank

I let my diesel pickup ( f250 7.3l navistar) sit for 2 years. It fired right up and I had no issues. Fuel was not treated in anyway prior to letting it sit. This is in Florida so plenty of heat and humidity.

RE: Recommendations for Moab campground

We stayed at Portal RV park. Close to town. They have 2 sections, a normal side and a resort side. We stayed on the resort side. It's gated, has a large pool and hot tub and is very nicely landscaped. The normal side is also pretty nice, but no pool , but they do have a swimming pond.

RE: Las Vegas RV Parks

On our last trip, we stayed at LV motorcoach resort. Really a top end place. Our site had a full outdoor kitchen and bar , gas fireplace, water feature. All super nice. Very close to the strip

RE: Pecking Order Gas Coaches under 35'

We had a Fleetwood Pace Arrow Vision 36B. Top line gasser. Pretty much every amenity that our Dutch Star has, like washer/dryer, corian counter tops,etc. We had it for 13 years and over 150,000 miles with essentially no issues which I can't say about the Newmar Dutch Star. Also, the build quality and finish far exceeded that of our Newmar. The Pace Arrow was a 1999 , can't speak about current Fleetwood status.

RE: Brake fluid flush

Get a mityvac or similar pump and you'll make it a much easier job.

RE: Bar Harbor,Maine

We've been staying at Narrows Too for the last 11 yrs. FHU, easy access to Acadia and Bar harbor. Will be heading up there in 2 weeks... I hope they get the out of state quarantine issue resolved by then. The below items is from Bayley's CG, which is participating in the lawsuit COVID-19 UPDATE AS OF MAY 31ST, 2020 A NEW EXECUTIVE ORDER PERMITS HOSPITALITY BUSINESSES TO BEGIN TAKING RESERVATIONS JUNE 1 BOOKING WITH NON-RESIDENTS ASKED TO QUARANTINE FOR 14 DAYS ON THE HONOR SYSTEM. This was the headline May 14, 2020 in the Portland Press Herald. Governor Mill’s Economic and Community Development Commissioner, Heather Johnson, in charge of implementing the Governor’s Order stated “Visitors from outside of Maine are still being asked to quarantine for 14 days after getting here, but she said the state had no enforcement protocol for the quarantine requirement. Since the the so-called honor system was announced, Bayley’s Camping Resort challenged the constitutionality of the discriminatory limitation on our out of state friends. The court stated; “Although the quarantine rule purports a certain neutrality insofar As it imposes a restriction on all who enter the state, including state residents, it effectively discriminates among members of the public in practical application because it grants or denies access to Maine’s goods and services based on citizenship status and access to reality, without regard to the presence or absence of circumstances that would justify imposition of circumstances that would justify imposition of such a burden on a person when considered as an individual.” The court concluded “The Campgrounds Advance a civil rights action that has potential.” The United States Department of Justice filed a brief in support of the Campgrounds asserting the quarantine requirement discriminates against out of state travelers and violates the constitutional right to travel. WE ARE OPEN TO ALL OF OUR OUT OF STATE CAMPERS AND WE ARE PRESSING FORWARD CHALLENGING THE UNCONSTITUTIONAL AND DISCRIMINATORY SELF-QUARANTINE “HONOR SYSTEM.”
