Must be a good reason to want a dentist covered in spaghetti sauce but to each his own. Good luck!

RE: Dealing with campground reservations

We have always gone with the same method as Mark Twain above. Usually park it for a few days in one spot to explore. We have done this since 1995. Was a lot harder planning back then but it always works out. The wife or I pick what we want to see and plan that way. For local trips, if it is less than a long day drive we will just call before we leave or when the campground opens. If plan A does not work we keep trying the area campgrounds until we get a spot. Need some spontaneity in our lives too! That said, I would not try making reservations less than 45 days ahead of time. We just finished making plans for just under two months ot West in the fall. Almost done with an Acadia National Park and lots of surrounding areas for early spring to summer.. in between we explore NC and SC state run parks mostly spur of the moment. I do not like my camper getting bored of being home. Our long term planning has worked flawlessly..if something goes bad, if still mobil. We will leave early, het it repaired and be on the way to the next spot. We do request that the reserved day that we are leaving behind be given to the next on the waiting list for free as it is paid for. Haven't had to do that a lot but of the times we did 75% of the sites we left behind were given n to folks waiting. That takes the frustration and disappointment out of the situation.

RE: Which park

Any one of those would be a good spot. We prefer Huntington Beach as the new section is all full hookups and some of the old section is also. The attractions for us are the bird watching, beach combing and the amount we can bicycle without leaving the park. New section is less spacious but not badly done. Old section is roomier but more rustic. We are SC seniors so it costs very little to camp in our state parks and we have enjoyed many of them. Lake Greenwood is another beautiful park although not at the beach. Enjoy your trip!

RE: Suggestions to replace Rockwood Mini Lite 2306

We went from a Mini-Lite 2305 to a Cougar 22RBS and it was quite a step up. If there are just the two of you it will be a welcomed change to have a full time bed. Lots of room and storage and well within your tow limits and we found construction to be much sturdier and the fram much more robust. Whatever you choose, enjoy it!

RE: Telecommunications Reform (Cell Phone Service/Biometric Data

Like every other law in Mexico there will surely be a way to pay your way out of it. Just like you can pay to have someone else do your military service.

RE: EZ Pass with and without trailer

Nope! We have used EZ Pass with and without the trailer since 2004 and so far it has accurately charged us. The readers count axles after the pass and according to EZ Pass there is no need to register the trailer with them. We have had three different trailers and they got it right every time so far. Even the toll road outside of Charlotte NC got it right when we went through with the trailer one day and without it the next.

RE: Solar Afterthought?

As long as those zip tie clips are not in sunlight you will be fine. The adhesives used on them usually does not like uv rays.

RE: Fast tongue jack

I was serious with that comment. My time is valuable. Maybe yours isn't.

RE: Best 14” trailer tires

Good choice. While you are at it get a tpms also as that $2,000 estimate of damage from a flat is very conservative.

RE: Replacement Seal for Drop Down Beds - HELP...

There is a company named Steel Rubber Products that supplies all sorts of items like that. Try contacting them.

RE: Fast tongue jack

Wow I never thought of getting a faster tongue jack! I could save at least 45 seconds each setting up and breaking down.

RE: Can’t find a part

The trailer is fairly new, have you tried the dealer?

RE: Questions about Reese straight line setup.

Try downloading the install sheets from Reese. They are exacting on what should be where. Do not trust that the dealer did it right! My first trailer with that hitch, which has the dual cams, the dealer was way off on the install and both sides were not even close. Start from scratch and do it with a ready to camp trailer. The fine tuning is tedious but when it is right it will make you very happy while you are towing. I am now using the same hitch that I bought in 2004 on my third trailer. Other than changing bars for each trailer to accommodate different tongue weights it is original and has over 50,000 miles on it. You will find that there will be two chain spots to hitch up with. In my case, four free links with nothing in Black tank and five free if the tank has more than half. When you get into a routine of packing the same things in the same place it makes it easy. At that point tanks will be the only variable. Be patient setting it up and you will be rewarded.

RE: Mixed Messages

From my read, easing travel restrictions only has to do with covid issues, not the crime issue. Two very distinct issues. There should also be a list of US cities that should be avoided because of the crime rate too.

RE: 50% Off Deal - Legit?

Good pricing for new members that is not available for existing members unless you become an elite member. See if you can get that rate for multiple years. Have had it for years and most years it pays for itself. This year it was a tow out of the back of the property after I got stuck in the mud trying to leave for a trip after four inches of rain. Took two trucks almost three hours to get me onto a solid patch of ground. Put down a bit over 500 feet of crushed limestone by ten feet wide to keep it from happening again.

RE: Rockwood Mini Lite metal awning arm paint touchup

It won't rust it is aluminum. If it is small enough use a black permanent marker. If it is big, black spray paint.

RE: Rocket launch.

Manatee Hammock campground is right across from the launch pads. They even have a sound feed and viewing area for the launches along with a posted schedule at the office.

RE: Cortez, CO RV parks?

We have reservations at Sundance and it appears they now take credit cards. Cannot say how god or bad it is, just the fact that they no longer require cash payment.

RE: Stupid question about tires

Another thing to consider is that there is no way to pull a complete vacuum on tires to eliminate any air in them before filling with nitrogen. When there is a way to do this then I will believe that the tires are 100% nitrogen filled. Until that is possible, your "nitrogen filled" tires have one tire volume of atmospheric air in them before filling. It would still be a gimmick but the 100% nitrogen claim would at least be accurate.
