RE: Assateague Island

First reaction...Brrrrrrrr! Been there late October & had it cold then. Never been in the SP. Always the National Seashore area & always on the bayside loops which are much more sheltered from the wind. If you are determined to do some Christmas camping on the Delmarva I would be much more inclined to use one of the inland & sheltered parks like Killens Pond SP, Martinak SP or Tuckahoe SP.

RE: Thunder Storms

Been struck twice & had a couple cases of buzzing antennas & standing hair. No chance to do anything with the hits. First was inboard a 747 shortly after take off. Second was onboard a boat miles from shore. First buzzing experience was on a Swiss mountain top. We beat a hasty retreat to the lower visitor center. Second buzzing was onboard our boat one evening at anchor. Nothing to be done except watch the show & stay away from antennas. In the RV we stay put. Aluminum frame so maybe that will help.

RE: Best Solvent To Remove RV Window & Roof Caulk?

Acetone or lacquer thinners do a good job of dissolving most things.

RE: Yet another Onan running like **** thread. HELP!

In the marine world an Onan is often called an Oh No genny.

RE: Seen in the campground: mega generator rear-rack

That is quite a piece of engineering. Purpose? Is it a good idea? Looks to be fine on flat surfaces but what kinds of stresses are put on the the frame when going into place like gas stations where there are huge changes in surface angles?

RE: Best wax for lazy people?

I'll bet the OP wants something easy, long lasting & cheap as well. HA! Good luck. Not going to happen. I am in the middle of giving my 12 year old 5er its annual waxing right now. It is a full 2 day job. The gelcoat is in great shape because it has been taken care of since almost new. No chalking. Spending 7 months of the year indoors helps in a very big way. My wax of choice is the Meguires flagship. It does nothing to remove dirt, stains or chalking but is an excellent protective wax hence only the need for once a year. Twice if the 5er was outside year round. If you have neglected your gelcoat then there is no easy or cheap way to restore it. You have to get rid of the chalking before even thinking about waxing. A cleaner wax will remove minor chalking but will not hold a shine for long, never mind what the claims on the bottle are.

RE: replacing plywood roof

If you are into a restoration that deep, use marine grade plywood & give that a coating of an additional preservative so that you will never be doing the job again.

RE: battery disconnect in storage

Disconnect the cables. No ghost draw then.

RE: Best RV Resort or Campground

Are you looking to FT & find places to sit for weeks or months at a time or do some traveling returning to a home for the off season? We are travelers, spending at least 5 months & usually covering at least 15,000 miles a year. We are seldom anywhere more than 4 nights. Trips are planned, sort of, making few reservations & everything is always subject to change. Everyone has their style, from weekend warriors to those who never move.

RE: Henry Ford Museum

We spent an entire day there & just about got our fill. Next day did the village & Ford plant. Like any facility of it's kind plenty of parking.

RE: RV AC Longevity

Replaced a 10 year old Coleman this year. Not much use really but has experienced low voltage a number of times. First the fan motor seized. Replaced that & gave everything a good cleaning. Two weeks later the compressor died. Bought new unit & salvaged slightly used fan motor as spare for new unit.

RE: Show off your camping "knick-nacks"!

Pigs do fly. This one is part of the the setup ritual. I call it my weather station. It tells me wind speed & direction & if I see it dripping it is raining. https://i.imgur.com/YgynKQsl.jpg "border=0" https://i.imgur.com/m3zZPvb.pngClick For Full-Size Image. https://i.imgur.com/gpWGjRVl.jpg "border=0" https://i.imgur.com/m3zZPvb.pngClick For Full-Size Image.

RE: I didn't buy an RV

BOAT is Break Out Another Thousand. RVs are nothing like that until you get into tag axle DPs.

RE: Want to add a cig charger inside-ideas?

If this is a one off trip & need I'd be inclined to run direct off the battery. Make sure that the wire is thick enough so that you don't experience VD.

RE: Thinking about project 5ver

Most of the stuff is do it yourself with the help of YouTube. The window I'd be inclined to bite the bullet & let a professional do it. I finally replaced a broken push out BR window this year after driving around with it cracked & taped for about 20,000 miles. No luck at finding replacement window anywhere. Window guy showed up at CG with his truck, material, tools & helper & replaced the glass window with extremely tough lexan all precisely cut & mounted in a couple hours for $300.00. Some things having the right tools & experience really help.

RE: Where do you search for parks?

Campgroundreviews can be hit or miss. Was searching around for info on a GA CG today & ran into a terrible review for it. Seems the camper wanted to cut short his stay because of the weather & the owner refused to give a refund. Unhappy camper gave a 2/10 review. Say what!!!!! Checked on the camper. Sure enough, only a few other reviews. Problems everywhere he went. I start with 10/10 then deduct 1 for every item not happy about. Poor value for money, no table, no fire ring where expected, no WIFI if expected for money, poor WIFI if WIFI does not work as expected, really bad roads or site. Each is worth a point deduction. If the person at check in is not Mr/Mrs Congeniality I don't much care. They would have to really rattle my cage to earn a point deduction.

RE: Kiplinger: 13 Reasons You'll Regret An RV In Retirement

Whoever wrote that report obviously has never had any experience owning or maintaining a real cruising boat. Break Out Another Thousand: BOAT. One thing RVs do is depreciate quicker. My estimate is that mine has depreciated $25 per night of use in the past 10 years. Scary thought. We get about 150 nights use a season. Hate to think what the per night depreciation cost is for those who roll over & get a new one every couple years & only do a few weeks use each year.

RE: broken springs

If suspicious of the springs upgrade them. Upgraded mine from a 6 to 7 pack. Whole new set of springs. Bought the best shocks I could find as well.
