RE: Question for fellow PA boondockers

Florida has an extensive State Forest system, but mainly allows camping in their low cost dry camps. Tho Florida residents over 65 get tio camp for free.I think that's a little farther than the OP wants to go.

RE: Maybe a new low?

Total negligence, anybody builds a piece of cr*p like that, should pay dearly.

St Louis

From I-64 heading West, probably I-70 straight through would be fastest, but would I-255/270 have less traffic at any given time on any given day of the week?

RE: Is Facebook killing this site?

DW does FB, I don't, if I want to know anything about RV'ing, I come here or one other site.

RE: Height of Unit

Probably, but measure for yourself.X-2, I never read what the manufacturer said, I went straight to measuring it myself, 11-4 to top of AC.

RE: Can I run my Onan while plugged into shore power?

Yes and no. You can run it, but it won't actually exercise it since there won't be any load. You're better off disconnecting from shore power first. Maybe some are set up that way, but mine isn't. If I have my 5er plugged into shore power and the generator running, the generator is the default source of power. That said, there is no reason to have the trailer plugged in when the generator is running.My C too

RE: Route

I am planning to travel from Page, AZ to Durango, CO on May 5th, 2021. I am traveling in a 35 Ft Diesel Pusher Motorhome towing an SUV. I am planning to take Hwy 98 south from Page to Hwy 160 east to Durango. Has anyone been over this route in a big rig and is it okay for my set up. Thanks for any info you can provide.Come back & let us know how you make out, while we don't have a rig that big, we are going that very route in July.

RE: Billings Montana to Yellowstone

Been a while, '08 IIRC, we did it in the reverse, West Yellowstone to I-90 on our way to Glacier, no problems that I can remember, decent road with no severe grades. We even saw moose on that route, which we never did in Yellowstone or the Tetons.:)

... tile of some sort... Not sure if he's talking, Actual Tile, or a linoleum type squares. Big difference in weight and ease of installing.

RE: Too hot

WOW, that's an open ended question, Too hot? According to who, Or is it whom, but seeing that your from Ontario, and there's nearly NO shade there, I'd say yes. Actually, the average temp in July is 89F, but I'm sure it can be quite a bit warmer.

RE: Swivel TV wall mount

You could use a small diameter nail to find the stud. Then the adjacent studs should be 16" distance (US home standard). Mount the TV on a board or plywood that wil span the studs. That's basically what I did, put up a 1x10 that spanned 3 studs, plus put in 4 more screws into the paneling, then painted the board, my 24" combo w/ DVD only weighs about 8.5 lbs. So your 19 would be even less.

RE: Park Reviews

We like http://www.campgroundreviews.com/ much better. The public rates them; not an organization. You do have to sort them out though. What one person may not like may not bother you, such as weak wifi. Most people carry their own wifi nowadays and don't use the park's. Someone may dislike the weather, bugs, lack of pavement, etc. X-2 100%, i'd rather take the opinions of my fellow campers, but as pointed out, you need to take some with a grain of salt, like the one that gave a low rating because of all the leafs... in a fully forested CG. :R

RE: 14 Reasons You Will Regret an RV in Retirement

The biggest problem with having an RV in retirement, is that it calls to you "Let's go somewhere!!!" and now you have the free time to heed that call ;-)I know you are using that, sarcastically , as I don't see that as a problem, on the other hand, DW is a different story. ;)

RE: Cortez, CO RV parks?

We chose Sundance RV Park, never been there before but it rates well and has Pull Through sites with shade.

RE: Questions for Veterans

Another question from a non veteran but one who supports the Military and is always trying to make up for it. Do you get offended when I always "Thank You for Your Service" when it's clear you are a Vet? Thanks for Your Service. No I do not get offended. Sometimes I get chocked up and don't know how to reply And YOU and nothing to make up for....... X-2, not offended, but grateful, and humbled, as Old Biscuit says, don't really know how to reply. A simple Thank you is far more than I got returning from Vietnam.

RE: Questions for Veterans

As a Vietnam Vet, I say, Wear it proudly, and thank your Grandson-in law, and Thank you for your 30 years.

RE: 14 Reasons You Will Regret an RV in Retirement

Compared to what? Some newbie re-writes this article every year just to get some followers. I'd guess that it's compared to not buying an RV -- there are lots of ways to retire without driving around in an RV that can be expensive to own and operate and someone contemplating the lifestyle needs to look at both pros and cons. To start a discussion, here are the main points from the 14 reasons you will regret an RV in retirement article: RVs Are Really Expensive So are S&B's You’ll Spend Even More Money Updating Your RV's Decor WHY, haven't done it in 14 years Your RV Will Depreciate in Value True, but it only matters IF I intend to sell it RVs Guzzle Fuel Compared to a 747 no, compared to my Focus yes, it's all relavant, and to how often you move itYou'll Need Extra Insurance for Your RV Not sure what he means, "Extra Insurance", but the insurance on the RV is nowhere near the cost of my home owners. Health Care Can Be a Hassle When Traveling in an RV Not really sure why it would be You'll Have to Deal With Your Own Waste From Your RV I deal with it in the S&B too, what's the difference, other than I have to hook up a hose from the RV. Quarters Are Close in Your RV Yes, some prefer it that way, they call it COZY. and then it all depends on the RV. RVs Aren’t Easy to Drive, By the term "Drive" I assume he's talking about a MH rather than a TT or 5'er, and that's really a matter of opinion, if it's a newbie who's never driven anything bigger than an SUV, perhaps, but once you're past the learning curve, it's no problem. Overnight Parking Can Be Problematic With an RV Again a matter of opinion, there are Many places to overnight, from Interstate rest stops, Many of the box stores, (Walmart, Lowes) shopping centers, Casinos, Churches, Cracker Barrels and others. RV Repairs Can Be Costly So can repairs at the S&B You’ll Need to Get Rid of a Lot of Your Stuff And the problem there IS?? Most of it, you didn't really need in the first place. It Can Get Lonely on the Road in an RV Not possible, my DW won't let it, even if I wanted to. Airbnb for RVs? You Might Want to Try Before You Buy The only one I really disagree with is #2, if you buy the interior that you like, you won't need to upgrade it (though you'll still want to add accessories, like hooks, storage bins, etc along with all of the normal gear you need for RVing). And #14 isn't really a drawback, it's a suggestion to try before you buy, which makes sense. For completeness, here's their 10 reasons to retire in an RV list published the day before the reasons not to buy an RV article: Even During the Lockdown, You Can Still Buy an RV You Can Self-Isolate in an RV During COVID and Still Travel You Can Live on a Modest Budget in an RV RVers Can Volunteer to Give Back (And Save Money) You’ll Buy Less Stuff Traveling in an RV You Can Take the Road Less Traveled in an RV You’ll See More of Your Family While Traveling in an RV You’ll Eat Well in Your RV Travels Oh, the Places You’ll Go … And the People You’ll Meet

RE: What do you use for local travel once camped up?

Towed, Always, you'd be really hard pressed to find an Uber driver in most areas we camp in, or even a cell signal to call Uber. And bicycling 12 miles (one way), to a grocery store is not my idea of a fun time.
