RE: Pulling TT through Newport Rhode Island

2x on Fisherman's State Park. The take the tow vehicle to your local destinations. Have a smaller class C and I have my hands full driving around Newport. As posted if you can spend a couple of days investigating the Point Judith and the Jamestown area (lookup Beaver Tail point in Jamestown) you won't be bored. How about a 1/2 or full day deep sea fishing trip right out of Galilee, right down the street from the mentioned State Park. Plenty to do and see. The Newport mansions, and the shore line drive there are great visits.

RE: Hooking up a 12V 3A TV in my TT

2x with Turn The Page`s post. I have the exact set up working off he cab cigar lighter accessory outlet. Been 4 years now and all is well. Honestly, with the ride my RV subjects this TV to, I thought it would have failed long ago. In fact we are sitting in our RV in a campground, in Gordonville Pa and DW is watching the TV as I write this post!!!

Thanks for the tip. We'll be coming up from the south and my plan was to pick up Rt 24 at Remington.. I'll just pick up Rt 52 out of Lafayette and then Rt 24 west out of Kentland.

RE: Resort Campgrounds 2-3 hrs outside NYC?

Herkimer Diamond KOA, is by far one of the most family friendly campgrounds I have come across. From mining for "Diamonds" in the quarry, tubing down the river that is on the back side of the park, to joining in some of the non-stop camp sponsored activities for the kids. They won't be bored. Big campground with large clean sites, nice pool. Make reservations this place fills up fast. I was very disappointed with the Newburg KOA too..

RE: Quick question about Maine

Try the " Lobster Buoy Campsties" South Thomaston. Not a big place but the ocean is at your door step. Bring your surf casting rod. They only accept cash..

RV Campgrounds in Southern Ohio

I am looking for campground near Peebles Ohio. I have checked out Campgroundreviews.com and followed Google search locations listed campgrounds, but I'm wondering if anyone here has a favorite camp in that area. We are heading out next week and my plan is to take a ride on the "Lincoln Highway" US 30. Stop at Kidron Ohio to check out the Lehmans non electric store, then head south to Peebles an take in the Serpent Mount. Afterwards, after running around Chicago we will pick up US 30 westwards again. As always, suggestions are appreciated.

RE: fresh water tank

I had this problem once. What I did was disconnect the city water, turn on the pump, run the house water for a second or two, turn off the pump, open a faucet to relieve the house water pressure, then attach the city water again. Hasn`t happened since. I don't know how these valves work but I suspect there was a speck of something stuck in the system which was flushed away.. now before I hookup the city water, I make sure the pump is off then relieve the house water pressure.

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.
