RE: Hard wired surge protector

We wired ours before the ATS back in 2010 and it has protected us a few times from bad power. I wired the input cord to the Progressive and then bought a short length of cord from Home Depot to go from the Progressive to the ATS - very simple. I have also purchased a Terminal strip that can be used to bypass the Progressive or ATS if one of them should fail.

RE: RV Parks near Crater Lake National Park

We stayed at Collier Memorial State Park near Chiloquin, OR about 35 miles from Crater Lake and found it very convenient and a very nice place to stay. Pictures of our site and what we did are available on our blog.

RE: tires

People have started having trouble with premature dry rot on the Michelins in the last few years. Several have started buying Toyos and have been very satisfied with them. We purchased a couple of Continentals last year through the FMCA plan where they were almost 150/tire less expensive than Michelins and have been happy with them so far. I will replacing the four Michelins on the rear this spring and will most likely get Continentals again. You don't normally wear out a motorhome tire out but replace them due to dry rot. I won't know how the Continentals do, dry rot wise, for a few years yet.

RE: Florida turnpike or I-95??

When we lived in Key West several years ago we always took the turnpike up to the Jupiter toll plaza where we got off and took 95 the rest of the way north. That seemed to avoid the heaviest congestion on 95.

RE: Where to stay in St Louis?

Casino Queen is about he best in the area though it is in Illinois across the river. Large, FHU pull-throughs and easy access to St. Louis by car or Metro-Link.

RE: Best RV Resort or Campground

We have found that most truly RV resorts are ownership parks though they allow you to rent spaces as well. Two that quickly come to mind are Mountain Falls Luxury Motorcoach Resort near Lake Toxaway, NC and Bella Terra of Gulfshores near Foley, AL, neither not all that far from Huntsville.

RE: Pennsylvania Turnpike

We had an I-Pass from Illinois for several years - no monthly charge but they will close the account if no activity in several years, not sure how many. We now have a NC Quick Pass which is also good for the all EZ-Pass states, the Georgia Peach Pass, and the Florida Sun Pass if you get the correct transponders. The NC QuickPass has no monthly fee until two years of inactivity then they charge $1.00/month.

RE: How to make photo digital

Looks like a spam post to me - pretty obvious with the link included - which brings of the point of how a new member can post links?. I can't remember the last time I took a picture with a film camera... I would have to agree. How was the film developed without the developer giving the option of receiving digital files as well. Most developers have been doing this for years, including Walgreens. Somebody is pushing scanners!

RE: Pennsylvania Turnpike

Get an EZ-Pass from any state you choose. It just make life in the North-East easier. I cross PA a lot and always use I/80 it's not a bad road and there are no tolls. If you are an infrequent EZ-PASS user, make sure you get your account set up in a state that doesn't charge monthly fees so that your deposit doesn't get gradually depleted with monthly fees.

RE: British Columbia, Canada

We stayed at the Othello Tunnels Campground back in 2009 and found it nice. It's not a resort but then we found that Canada campgrounds don't really go into that sort of thing. They kinda expect you to stay out touristing most of the day and relax at night.

RE: Air Conditioning Problems

Is rhe rear of your unit much cooler than the front? That is normally the situation in our coach and we found out when we were in 100+ in Redding, CA that placing a 20" box fan in the doorway of the bedroom blowing towards the front pulled that cool air towards the front sufficiently for us to be comfortable -very cheap temporary fix for a temporary problem.

RE: Replace RV Refrigerator with Residental Model

We replaced our Norcold 1200 with a Whirlpool WRS342FIA 22 cuft in 2013 and haven't looked back. We had to install a side by side since the reefer wasn't in a slide and didn't have enough room to open a drawer freezer. The dimensions on it are 32 3/8 deep without handle, 65 7/8 high and 32 3/4 wide. It fit in the old space with very little modification of the woodwork. The doors are completely outside the cabinet. That same model is probably not still available but you should be able to find the dimension guide available for most any model you wish. We also changed our 2000 watt MSW inverter out to a pure sine wave but many just install a 1000w PSW for the reefer only.

RE: Any American full-timers have experience w/ Tax Exclusion?

Also, if your doing work in Mexico and Canada AND being paid by companies in those countries AND paying income tax to those countries, that would be the only way you would qualify for a foreign income exclusion. If your income is from american companies while you are working for them online, you have no foreign income regardless of your location while earning that income unless you are paying foreign taxes on that income. Check out Form 2555 and its instructions and you will see what requirements exist.

You may want to start your research at the IRS.

RE: Help finding nightly parking for our caravan

That trip looks to be about 2500 miles over almost all interstate 5 and 40, and if you average 60 MPH you would have four 600+ miles a day with three nights along the way. Myself, I would try to average 50 MPH (especially in a caravan) and add an extra day for five 500 mile days and four nights. Whichever you choose, I would then use Google Maps to enter that trip with possible stopover points (right-click on a map spot and "add a destination"). In the left pane it will show you the entire length, in miles of the trip and you can click on the Details and it will give you the miles between each stop. You can also left-click on a stop and drag it back and forth on the route to change where the stop is. You can then do a google search on the map for fairgrounds in the area of each stopover for fairgrounds and then check their websites for possible parking/RV sites. You may also find that stopping at truck stops is a viable option and you would have showers and food available there. The problem with a truck stop is that you will be traveling long days and parking places can become scarce as the evening approaches. Good luck with your trip! We have stayed at the Ukiah fairgrounds a couple of times and if you haven't, you might give it a look to see what a fairground RV park might look like.

RE: Charleston SC

We normally stay at Oak Plantation just west of Charleston and an easy drive into town. We can usually get in to it when James Island has no room. It has a variety of sites, most of them a little larger than the normal RV Park and right on US 17 so easy in and out.

RE: Poor mods

You get that message when you click on the Notify Moderator link at the top of each post. The notification works but you still get the message as if it didn't.

RE: Maggie Valley - Hendersonville

You may want to have a look at Trails End RV Park, just a little ways from Maggie Valley on the way to I-40. We spent six months in 2017 and are repeating that this year. Good clean 50 amp FHU back ins in a quiet, beautiful park with great management. No restroom or other amenities
