FDR state park campground in Georgia

Has anyone stayed at FDR state Park campground? My ship's reunion is Columbus,Ga in September 2023 and I was interested in staying there. One more question. Does the lake have aligators?

RE: Looking for quick overnight near Richmond VA

Not sure where you're going to Pa but Pocohantas state park has a nice campground with pull through sites and water and electric.Coming up 95 take 288 to the campground. Then you can get back on 95 or take 64 to 81 into Pa.

RE: leak at connection to drain pipes and Holding tank

Years ago,I broke off the dump valve when it caught on a tree stump.It also cracked the connection where the drain line came out of the tank. I used JB Weld apoxy. I cleaned off the crack in the tank and mixed and applied the JB weld per the instructions. It lasted for the over 2 years and then I sold the trailer.I have used JB Weld on different things both plastic and metal and it always worked for me.

RE: CG Prices

I'm 70. But have had the Federal Senior Pass since I was 62. On our trip to Texas in March,we paid anywhere from $7.50 to $19 for water and electric sites at federal campgrounds. We paid between $35 and $45 at state parks. $35 for W&E and the $45 was for FHU. 1 night at a private campground with FHU was $45. Diesel for the trip was $1700.00.

RE: 2022 campgrounds

WE usually camp in spring and fall. In March we went from Pa to Texas. That was before the big jump in fuel prices. I am pulling a 26ft TT with a Nissan Titan diesel. Our fuel costs for the trip was over $1,700. Now it would be almost twice as much. We won't do that trip next year if fuel prices don't come down. I think many people will forgo the long trips and look for something closer. We booked a forest service campground in Pa for August. We had no trouble getting a site with water and electric.But that was coming in on a Sunday and leaving on a Thursday. We can make the trip with one tank of fuel each way.

RE: Electrical question

You were promised by the RV park that they supplied “good” electrical power. They broke their promise and, I’ll wager, offered no refund. If the EMS has a ground fault circuit then the problem could be with the trailer,not with the campground electric.I have come across a few trailers that worked fine on regular recepticales but would trip a GFI circuit because they have a very small leak to ground. Now if the EMS shut down because of low voltage,then that could be the campgrounds fault or even the utility providers fault. When everyone is running their A/C's,the voltage will drop. And now you have people with electric vehicles plugging in which will make things worse.

RE: AZ 260 between Payson and Heber... expect delays

That's great that they are adding a lane. Arizona usually does a great job of getting these road projects done.In Pennsylvania where we live, it would take years instead of months. 260 is such a nice drive. We stayed at Canyon Point campground 4 years ago. Very nice.

RE: Don't let your guard down, Covid is still out there...

I had Covid early on when there weren't enough vaccines around. It wasn't too bad except I felt super tired for weeks afterwards. So I got my shots after having Covid.2 friends I go to breakfast with got their shots and later both contracted Covid and both ended up in the hospital. I believe having the virus gives you better immunity then the shot alone.

RE: Wipes!!!

I have 2 apartments above my shop. The building was built in 72 and I never had a drain clogged up until 2 years ago. The culprit was the same,"flushable wipes". They should be banned.

Slide out seals

The slide out seals on my trailer have almost ripped apart.These are the wipers that are on each side and seal the slide out when it is open. There are 1 piece of rubber about 4" long the one half goes under a metal strip with screws in it. The other half is supposed to run against the slide out. At several places,the rubber is ripped where it folds and will soon be completely apart. It appears the only way you can get at the screws that hold the rubber in place is to take the slide out - out of the trailer. I looked on you tube for a video but it seems different companies fasten them differently. Has this happened to anyone else and is there another way to fix it?This is on a 2o15 Keystone Cougar.

RE: Best route in WV

WE have been to Seneca Rocks and Canaan Valley State Park. But we were at both many years ago. I do remember coming down 219 pulling a 24 ft trailer. All I can tell you is that the roads were fairly good but I guess it depends on what size unit you have.

RE: 89A through Oak Creek Canyon to Sedona

We did it coming from Williams to Cottonwood in 1999 towing a 24 ft camper. Great drive.I'm glad we had good breaks!

RE: Fuel Availability

I just saw a video of the CEO of Pilot/Flying J. He testified that they get most of their DEF fluid by train. Their supplier told them their deliveries are being cut back by 25%.So while we may be able to get fuel, for those that own a truck that uses DEF fluid,we won't be able to drive anyways. Then I saw another story about how if your DEF fluid sensor goes bad, the engine computer won't let you run more than 5mph. This actually happened to me.

RE: Calf Canyon/Hermits Peak fire in northeastern New Mexico...

I have a friend who lives in Payson and we were talking about fires last night. I said if I lived out there,I would do everything I could to make my house fire proof.Metal roof,brick or metal siding and clearing trees and brush from within 100ft of the house.Then have a sprinkler system on a timer.Not much more you can do than that. I hope your friends house makes it. It's a shame for all the damage these fires do.They can be very scary.

RE: New Jersey to California

By going that route,you will be going on the Pa and Missouri Turnpike. We did that in the past,then we started taking I-81 to I-40. No tolls and in my opinion better roads.

RE: Be careful with engine block heaters

I wouldn't blame the block heater, I would blame the extension cord. If you are just using a residential electric cord plugged into a regular wall outlet that was most likely the problem. I was an electrician for 48 years. I saw this at a trucking company I worked for. There was no strain relief for the cord and over a period of time they started arching which caused the outlet and extension cord to melt. I finally convinced them to install twist lock plugs and that solved the problem.

RE: Parking permits in the GSMNP

Maybe we're doing something different in Pa,but for the past 20 + years the parks have been upgraded with more FHU sites and new bathouses and concession stands. And the rates are pretty reasonable. In Va state parks we paid $48 for a W&E hookups. In Pa you can get FHU for less than that.For state residents it's $27 for electric and $40 for FHU.They charge $4 more per nite for a Friday and Saturday but give a senior discount of $4.50 a nite.
