RE: Power drain

OK Grit Dog, what do you think is the cause? Keep it simple, I'm a dummy, please.

RE: Strange Gray Powder

Could it be residue from sliding the drawers in & out? Like something is rubbing. Or even how the drawer fits into the opening, rubbing against the top of the opening, causing the powder to fall onto the contents of the drawer?

RE: Power drain

That's what I did. I put a knife type switch on the negative terminal and the issue has stopped. What had prompted the question is that I had the coach at the repair shop to have the catalytic converted replaced, third one stolen, and this one had a CatClamp installed and the part is on back order. So I had to remind them about the cut off switch to save from buying another battery. Just a minor inconvenience unless you forget to tell some one. Thanks for all the replies.

Power drain

We are not full timers at all. Our coach will sit for a month or so, especially in the winter months. We do start it and check things periodically. Without starting & running frequently it seems that our engine battery drains to the point it needs a jump to restart. My question where & how do I look to find the source of the drainage? I know nothing of electricity other than when you stick your finger in outlet it hurts. A lot! Your thoughts? thanks

Sioux Falls area

All we've got are some wants & a definite maybe. And need help! We want to head to the Sioux Falls area (from St. Louis, MO) in June. DW wants to see the falls of Sioux Falls and Palisades State Park. I want to spend a night at the Blue Springs (Kansas City area) Elks Lodge and have a cold beer & a burger in Minowi, NE. (look it up, sounds like something I gotta see). Well the issue is that we must attend a yet to be scheduled meeting in June, so our departure date is uncertain at this time. And from what I can find Palisades Park is almost booked solid for June. Besides from what I did find, we're not over joyed with their sites, they leave some to be desired in our opinion. Having never been to South Dakota before we're not certain of how their state parks are set up with facilities. (Paved/gravel/dirt pads, handy water & electric, level, etc.) And we are generally state park people. Either those or COE parks. Not much on KOA type or private parks, but they will do for a night over if we must. Any words of wisdom on where we might spend a couple of nights while exploring the area? Sorry to be so windy, but that's our story. Thanks

RE: Electric bikes !!

Well then I'm cheating. But still getting around on our ebikes. I'm over 75 and the DW is a couple of years my junior and we still like to ride through campgrounds, to the store, etc rather than drive. The ebikes allow us to do this at our own pace of exercise and exertion. As two asthmatics with bad knees we manage the best we can.

Silver Mines Campground, MO

Silver Mines, MO, near Fredericktown, MO, I believe is a national Park. They have it listed as having a couple of electric sites, but I can't find any mention of a dump station. Any one have any info on this? thanks

RE: White crusty stuff.

I was told by an authority on RVs that hair spray is very effective. Makes sense to me as it cuts off the oxygen, thus no oxidation. Though I haven't tried it yet. Just FYI!

RE: Military Campgrounds

To my understanding they are for active, retired or 100% disabled. As in any other network things can change from one place to another, but that is generally the rule. Check with the FamCamp you are interested in.This might help link

RE: Cooking surfaces and tools, What's your favorite to use!

I know that I'm in the minority, but I love my Cobb Grill. Cook, grill, smoke, fry, most any type of cooking you want and is very fuel, charcoal briquettes, efficient and compact.

RE: Peel Ferry, Arkansas

Thanks BurbMan. Appreciate it greatly. I couldn't find that any where. Thanks.

Peel Ferry, Arkansas

Peel Ferry completes Hwy 125 in northern Arkansas across an arm of Bull Shoals Lake from approximately Hwy 125 Park to approximately Buck Creek Park. This is the only info I can find about it: "The last public ferryboat operating in the state, Peel Ferry transports vehicles and passengers across a section of Bull Shoals Lake. Open daily from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Departure times listed at the landing." I'm trying to find out, for sure, that my 26' Class B+ will fit and would really like to find the schedule to help judge my travels. Appreciate any info on this. Otherwise it's a long way around.

RE: Gas prices.

Does any one think the gas prices will create more campsite cancellations/openings? People backing out of and or changing to destinations closer to home.

RE: Florida

We were there a couple of years ago and stayed at anastasia state park with our class b+. Loved it. First day went into town and took a segway tour. DW, myself and our guide. She asked what we wanted to see and told her: Parking for the RV, good restaurants, sites, etc. She told us of a nice parking lot to accommodate the RV for $10 all day not too far from the old town, a great place to eat and a tone of interesting facts, sites & shops. Highly recommend the segway tour.

Verizon $50 unlimited internet

Anyone else seen this advertised? I wonder if it can be used in a RV also. I am not at all electronically smart and don't understand half of this stuff. But if I could use this at home, way cheaper than my current service, and also in our RV that'd be great. Thoughts? (in simple english, please)
