RE: bottle in holding tank

Ok.... This sounds crazy but how about emptying the tank locate the bottle with the flex camera and going after it with a shop vac..from the top side.

RE: campground in Maine??

I just booked 3 days at the Shorehills campground and RV park in Boothbay Maine. There is a shuttle into town and a scenic Railroad just down the street. Lots to do in this area. The campground is right next to a beautiful river too. Nice place. The "Lobster Buoy campsite in South Thomaston has sites right next to the ocean. Great place to surf cast.

RE: New Jersey beach vacation

We stay in a nice RV park in Galloway N.J. called Shady Pines MH and RV Resort (see campgroundreviews.com ). Well maintained nice pool and they accept Passport America (be sure to call ahead.) Galloway is a good location, close to the beaches,Atlantic City and Ocean City. Cape May is about an hour south of this camp. My brother lives in Galloway and we always visit this area in April so I have no idea what the summer conditions (tourists) are like.

RE: $100 per night

Stayed at the St. Mary/East Glacier KOA Holiday on the 4th of July 2 years ago. 4 nights, cost me $135. $55 for 3 nights at the Durant/Chocktaw Casino. Used my KOA value card points. Just built up points from all KOA Journey campgrounds we stayed at. For the most part we enjoy KOA and our choice is to continue to use their campgrounds. And if there is a campground that honors Passport America in the area we will use it also.

RE: How do you manage without a toad?

We (just my wife and I) have a smaller RV also, 25ft. Bumper to bumper. We prefer not to tow. As previously mentioned,this small RV enables us to handle most driving and parking situations. On our long trips (We have 3 cross country trips under our belts so far) we usually combine our shopping stops with our lunch breaks during our daily drives. We travel on non interstate roads for the most part so markets/suppies are easyer to run across. When arriving at a destination, we drive around the area and if we feel it is worth it rent an auto. Again as mentioned,this method takes a bit of planning, however if we had a large RV I would probably tow a vehice.

RE: If you had a do-over, which would you get?

2016 Thor 22e on an E350 chassis with the standard Triton V10 here. After 3 cross country trips and 38,000 miles it gets 8.0 mpg. Might get 8.5mpg on scenic back roads, or 7.0 on the Interstate with a head wind, but the over all average is 8.0. So far no mechanical problems, knock on wood.

RE: First time TT trip AZ to VA

A couple of other thoughts, maybe practice hooking up to the tt and breaking down as though you are leaving. Remove all the leveling equipment, hoses and electrical service, then move to around if you like, then go through the whole leveling,set up procedure (hoses, (fresh ,gray and black water), electrical servicea couple of times making notes about the particulars. Also how about sleeping in the rig a couple of nights before you go, that way you will have things set up after a day on the road. It not difficult just new to you. Most all the fellow Rvers I have had the pleasure of meeting when on the road were always more than willing to help when I had questions. Take your time and enjoy yourselves.

RE: Service Temporarily Unavailable! Please try again later.

Yeah I just double posted because I got the "message", hit the back button then the post message again. Got a double post. I asked the moderator to remove my second (double) post. This is getting old.. Don't even feel like trying to post anymore.

RE: Newby questions

My wife and I were just tuning sixty,no kids, when we decided to start RVing. That was 4 years ago. We decided to rent a class C that would be about the size we could afford. Rented a 22 ft Class C with no slides and took it out through Northern New England and upstate New York for 2 weeks. We really enjoyed ourselves. Went out and bought a new 22 ft Class C no slides. Since then we have taken 3 cross country trips (10 weeks or so each) and have toured all over the Northeast. What we do when we arrive at a destination and plan to sight see for a few days is to rent a car for a day or 2. This 22ft is a smaller class C but it works for us.

RE: Best top coat/wax for RV's

Update: As mentioned in the above post, I tackled the nose of the overhang yesterday. After washing the RV, I applied the Turtle wax "tar and bug" remover to the nose to remove the bugs and caulking. That worked OK. Then I applied a coat of "NuFinish" wax over the area treated. I have to say I'm very happy with the results. The caulking is gone and my RV has a shiny nose. It took me about 2 hours to do the overhang. I had to keep moving the ladder and reaching far out (which I don't like doing when on a ladder) to get the coverage. I have no connection with these products. Just an inexpensive combination that gave satisfactory results.

Dehumidifier Question

I have a smaller (22ft) Class C RV. It will be sitting a little longer than usual this summer and I am thinking that the use of a dehumidifier would be a good idea. I have searched the forums here and on the internet and there are some good suggestions. I really prefer to get the opinions of the folks here, I trust it more. I live near providence RI and the humidity is usually above 70% and I have 30 amp shore power.

RE: Best top coat/wax for RV's

2x for the "Nufinish" the orange bottle. Been using it on my boats, cars RV and motor cycles for years. Easy on and easy off. It says the finish I'd good for a year but I hit the RV in the Spring after I uncover it and again in the late summer/early fall. I have a class C and the nose of the cab overhang is the problem. I bought some "Bug Slide" as was recommended here. It worked as advertised and left a very nice finish that lasted ok, however it didn't seem to help much when it came to the fried bug innard removal. It is expensive too, at least for me. I just put some Turtle wax "Bug and Tar" on the nose, we'll see how that works.

RE: 2019 Summer

We are leaving the 2nd week of June and heading up the Maine coast to Nova Scotia and visit "Oak Island" then up to Prince Edward Island and poke around. We have 5 weeks planned for this trip. Going to take a couple of weeks off then head out to Central Illinois to visit Family. Planning to take the "Lincoln Highway" (US 30) west then run along the great lakes back. No real time frame for this Illinois run.

RE: Magic stainless steel cleaner -- really works well

"Sprayway" glass cleaner works great too. However I am going to try this baby oil idea.

Interstate 84 through Waterbury Ct.

Had the opportunity to run I84 in both directions twice this past week. The road work is finished and all the lanes are open both directions. We hit the area around 1030am westbound and around 200pm eastbound (planned it that way) both times and the traffic was heavy but moving right along. Also there is an ongoing work area with the high-speed lane shut down westbound a few miles before the Hudson River bridge that tied us up for 30 or so minutes. Just as info..

RE: Carlsbad caverns rv parks

We visited this area last July. We hit the "UFO festival" (stayed at the "Town and Country RV Park" (very nice park) and then at the Carlsbad KOA. Enjoyed our stay there too. Great staff, they serve a very good BBQ dinner. The place is clean and well maintained. If you have the time check out "Sitting Bull Falls" it's about 15 miles or so from the Carlsbad KOA. We ran from Roswell to Carlsbad on Rt 285 and it was just fine. Didn't go south of Carlsbad on 285. We were also told the road and traffic conditions were different on that stretch, so we avoided it. Also, if you have pets there is a kennel service available at the Carlsbad Caverns Visitor center. It is very clean, air conditioned and inexpensive. I would call ahead to make sure it is still in operation, but it was very,very handy for us.

RE: door latch

OH Yeah. I keep an extra cab door key hidden in a magnetic key box. This Trimark latch we are talking broke and I was locked out. Won't happen again. I also carry an extra latch because it will surely break again.

RE: 2019 Forest River Forester with Ford Cab-----bare bones!

I read here on one of the threads to be sure to have the front end aligned. Apparently the factory does a generic alignment and this does not take into consideration the final chassis weight. I found about this the hard way. I bought my Ford E350 powered class c new and at 15k miles or so I noticed both front wheels were wearing excessively on the outer side of the tire. I brought it to a truck shop and they did the alignment. They had to replace some of the factory installed suspension parts to get the proper alignment..

Tire UV Protection

What tire protection, if any, do you use? I don't mean tire covers, but wipe on UV protection. I was just reading about a product called "303" and others and I'm wondering if they work. When my RV is parked in my yard I put my tire covers over the tires and a cover over the roof. I don't do this when parked at campgrounds when I'm on the road.
