RE: 50 AMP Tents

You'll most likely see more of the Tesla's and such using campgrounds to charge as the 50 amp is much quicker. I have read a few blogs that even suggest you pull your E/C into and empty site and hook up the charge cord and see if you can get done before anyone "notices". LOL, I thought that was called stealing ? Of course this all comes from the special group that believes the Lithium and Cobolt mining to make their batteries is saving the Earth. Yah. I would say that is extremely uncommon. Campground owners are putting their campgrounds on plug share because it is a revenue stream. Other than camping overnight or some kind of charge emergency where there was an unplanned charge station outage I doubt many EV drivers would waste their time charging at a campground. That’s taking a 20 minute job and turning it into a 12 hour job. Just sayin. I'm just repeating what I've read from more than one blog of actual users trying to travel with an EV. Outside of Urban area's, fast chargers aren't as common. Just Sayin

RE: Nashville

Down by the Opryland hotel is a KOA, and Two Rivers campground. We've stayed at the KOA several times, very nice. We haven't stayed at Two Rivers, but driven through and it looks good. In between the 2 camgrounds is a large Camping World which may come in handy as their store is very well stocked with Stuff. I assume by "strip" you mean Broadway..where all the honky Tonk bars are etc. To my knowledge there isn't any campgrounds near there anyway. The KOA is a 10-15 minute Uber ride. Also note "Music Row" is not Broadway...two different areas of Nashville. So, even if you could stay near one of the more tourist area's, you still need to Uber to the other area's. The Grand Ole Opry, The Rianan, Music Row, Broadway, the Parthanon, the zoo are all different area's and you'll need transportation. Also, even if you tow a toad, use Uber. Parking is expensive and you'll pay less with Uber an no worries driving.

RE: Extreme Mold & Water Damage: I need help!

I hate to say it, but this one is toast and time to move on. From your pictures I can see a bunch of delamination in the fiberglass on the front of the trailer too. So the front is just as bad if not worse than the rear. Once water damage gets this bad they simply are not worth the time and money to fix. Been there, done that. You'll have a ton of time and money into a band-aid fixed trailer that's worth maybe a couple grand. Time for your friend to sell as a hunting cabin. Good Luck !

RE: 2008 Itasca catalytic converter & pipe stolen

Cats are being stolen all over as the scrap prices are up for them. Storage yards are easy targets using their also stolen dewalt sawzall. Scrap yards aren't looking or going to look for Vin #'s. Edit : Treed ^^^

RE: Towing with a Ford Explorer

I have a 2013 Explorer Limited with the factory tow PKG. I was towing 3 snowmobiles (around 2k lbs with the trailer). the engine will not stay in 5th gear, you`ll be lucky to keep it in 4th most of the time. I wouldn't tow anything more than a large PuP. I`ve seen people tow TT`s with them, I don't know how they do it. The 4th and 5th gen Explorers are nothing like the 1st and 2nd (and even the 3rd gen for that matter). they are car based. the early ones were more truck based. This is your answer ^^^. We have a 2014 Explorer (with tow package) and before we bought a M/H we "tried" to tow our 3,500lb camper and the Explorer 3.5 would struggle just to go 60 mph and would stay in 4th and even downshift to 3rd on slight inclines. Luckily, we still owned our 1 ton diesel dually and used that as this generation Explorer won't get out of it's own way towing anything heavy. I couldn't imagine what fuel mileage would have been. Not to mention wear and tear.
