RE: Where to place campground stickers?

A similar but slightly different means of collecting SP memorabilia is hiking stick medallions. DW wife is now on her third stick. Uses one primarily for hiking and the others for displaying. Storage is a lot simpler and they are really pleasant to look at. Just a thought. (I call them her "braggin' sticks.

RE: New to me... UPDATE!!!

I am also a pellet smoker and the DW & I both love it. We've found that Sam's has the best price on pellets, but they do leave a lot of ash and you need to vacuum the fire box out every four or so burns. And with the pellet smoker we found that when cooking, throw on a couple extra of whatever you are smoking. Put the extra in a seal-a-meal/foodsaver or such and freeze. After a day of driving and pulling into a site for the night, pop the frozen bag into the microwave and you have a meal that taste like you just smoked it. Tender and juicy!

RE: For those on the road, what did you have for dinner tonight

Before we head out on a jaunt we prepare several cooked meats and freeze them. I like to use my smoker to prepare most anything from 1-1/2" pork chops, ribs, brisket, brats, pork butts and beef roasts. They are then sliced, proportioned and frozen seal-a meal type bags. Simply pull in for the night, pop a bag of ribs in the microwave and they taste just like they just came off the grill. Juicy, tender and good and smokey.

RE: I hate dinettes

I to am a dinette fan. In fact that's one of the reasons we bought the unit we did. Love it!

RE: progressive industries ems-pt30x E3 error code

Thanks for the fast replies. If it ever stops raining I'll try the hair dryer trick. Otherwise we will be home tomorrow & Monday I'll call Progressive. The unit is less than a year old, I'll see what they say.

progressive industries ems-pt30x E3 error code

Pretty new to the RV world and my progressive industries ems-pt30x has been gibving an E3 error code at the last couple of parks. Can these four parks all be wired wrong? And they are in 3 different states. Any suggestions? And no I don't have a voltage meter, even if I knew how to use one properly.

RE: Campgrounds costing less than $20 per night

We are at Wax Campground on Nolin River Lake, KY. It'a a COE park. With the geezer pass it's $12.50 a night with water & electricity. And besides that, it's is gorgeous!!!! Check the Corp of Engineer Parks. They are great! And across the nation.

RE: Elks

It is a worthwhile organization. We have been members for a while and take advantage of that while on the road. After driving for a while, setting up camp and wanting to find the hidden places in the area to visit, see and do, there is nothing like the local Elks Lodge. If they do not offer RV hook-ups and you stay elsewhere, there is usually one near your location. A place where you can meet friends you never knew you had. A nice adult beverage or two shared with the local folks and they will gladly give you the inside poop on sites to see, best food and anything else you wish to know.

Not sure if this is what your are asking for, but my go to site for campground search is: alluscampgrounds. And one of the most informative sites, if the campground is listed, which not every one is toadhall. This gentleman does a stellar job and helped us many times with the info he offers. Can't praise him/his site enough.

RE: Reservation timing

To answer the question about when snowbirds leave, there usually heading back home by the end of March - some leave earlier and some leave later. The spring break crowd shows up anytime after the middle of February to the middle of March. Thanks a bunch. That's what I was looking for. And thank to all for your responses.

Reservation timing

This subject has probably been brought up before, but my searches showed nothing. Any way, we live in the midwest and many times want to head south to the gulf states for the warmth early in the year. My question is when is the best time for a chance of getting a reservation at a state park in the gulf area? In other words, when do the snow birds leave and the spring breakers arrive? Nothing against either group, just looking for availability. Is there a magic number on the calendar? Or moon phases? How do you plan? thanks

RE: Aluminum Wheels

WOW!, CharlesinGA, thanks for your research. All I have to do now is is to see what exactly the dealer has to offer on the new Class C. Appreciate it much.

RE: Drinking Campground Water...

Ten years full time drink the water everywhere that it's tested and passed as potable. You can always add a shot of Knob Hill or CC to purify and improve the taste. Good point. That's my kind of thinking. We generally have bottled water on hand if the campground water is that bad. But it's always been good enough for coffee.

Aluminum Wheels

Thinking about getting aluminum wheels for the RV. What are the pro's & cons of such a decision? Cost is definitely a factor and the looks are better, but are there any other advantages/disadvantages. I feel that the improved look is worth so much, but if I'm risking other issues down the road is the transition worth it. Your thoughts.

RE: Phoenix Cruiser electric couch in slide.

Under the bed, which is on the slide, is the folding mechanism, motor & such. Never really gave it a thorough look to see exactly what is there. Building a unit with storage to sleep/sit on sound like a great idea, but foremost I think comfort is the major concern closely followed the ease of setting it up/taking down. Our sofa opens & closes with the flip of a switch and is comfortable both as a sofa & as a bed. At least as comfortable as a sofa/bed can be. Sorry to be so vague but I won't be able to look for a couple of weeks, as our unit is in storage, when we prepare for our next trip.

RE: Winging it on your travels

If we have a particular destination, i.e. St. Augustine, FL, we generally make reservation for a site there for a couple of days. But to and from, which to us is an adventure in itself and generally takes several days each way and is a large part of the trip, is to plan park A, but also list park B & even C just in case for a night or two. Our last trip to Texas Hill Country was the rule breaker. Virtually every State/COE park was booked for the weekend. Even forced us to spend the weekend at a private "RV Resort" much to our chagrin. All in all it worked out to be pleasant, but not the same as a state or COE. This was even mid April and not supposed to be crowded. Guess it's all those blasted baby boomers retiring and getting into RV'ing like us!

RE: Phoenix Cruiser electric couch in slide.

Not Ron, but an owner of a Phoenix Cruiser 2100 with the electric sofa/bed. No, there is no room or storage under the sofa. I have no idea the difficulty of removing it.

Hocking Hills SP

DW has her heart set on visiting Hocking Hills SP second week of June. We did manage to get one of the four remaining sites for our chosen time slot. We are NOT destination Campers and just sit for a week or so. We have four days slated. Is that over kill for this park? We like to hike, but are asthmatics with bad knees! I guess we can find things to see & do around there. We also plan to spend a couple of days at CARTER CAVES STATE RESORT PARK and again are looking for things to see and do. We have a 22" motorhome and no toad and can fit into most sites/parking lots. Thanks, Gotta keep She Who Must Be Obeyed happy.
