RE: Quiet side of the Smokies

Just left yesterday from a camping trip in Townsend. We stayed at the KOA but have stayed in others along the river. Love the area and is hardly ever crowded (at least in the off season). Numerous places to eat as well. I could care less about going into Gatlinburg, way too crowded. My wife talked me into going just one time and people just seem to walk like cattle up and down the side walk on the main strip with no particular place to go or do. Never again!! I prefer the Townsend side and do my walking on the numerous trails that are in and around Cades Cove. Amen! That is my feelings exactly. We loved Cades Cove and went in every pull over, building and read every historical sign we could. Now we need to go back, I'm homesick!

RE: Quiet side of the Smokies

We stayed in Townsend a couple years ago when we went to the Smokies. I don't remember the name of the campground but, it was the last one before we entered the park. Right on a beautiful little stream. Cades Cove was a short drive as well as the Scenic View drive on the westside of the park. Had a great time and there was still plenty of people but, not terribly congested like Gatlinburg is.

RE: Registering 1-ton Truck in KS

Thanks Colliehauler. I stand corrected. Didn't realize there had been a change in the law.

RE: Registering 1-ton Truck in KS

Just make sure it has been licensed in another state. Kansas sales tax is high (10% in some locales). $6000 on a $60,000 truck! We own land in other states so we register them the first year there.Thanks. Does KS charge sales tax on a private-party to private-party used vehicle sale? Yes, not only do they charge sales tax on private party to private party but, if the amount sounds too low they have a set amount of what the vehicle should sell for and will charge you for that rate. Our last truck (diesel & used) was $1700 cheaper registered at our Missouri home than our Kansas home. Also, Missouri personal property tax is not charged till the following licensing year.If you have a bill of sale they will honor the price, did not use to be that way, they went by book value. Colliehauler, Are you sure this hasn't changed. About 5 years ago I bought an old 5th wheel for hunting and it needed quite a bit of repair. The price I paid for it was real low and they challenged me on it at the county DMV when I tried to license it. Made me pay on the book value. I had a bill of sale , inspection and a letter from the seller saying it had a lost title that was notarized so I could get another title. Maybe it has changed since then but, I wasn't aware of it.

RE: Question about moving fifth wheel

Any company that sells double wide mobile homes will have a set of beams and dollies that are made to move the halves sideways into places they can't back the halves into. They are competent and insured incase there is a problem. May cost a few bucks but, in the end you are insured and it is people who do it everyday. It will only take a few hours for two men.

RE: Insulating exposed tanks

After the heating pads are installed have you considered have the tanks sprayed with insulation? The spray insulation is also great on sealing any openings.

RE: Storage in Barn for winter.

We keep ours in a pole barn with a gravel floor. I always park it on wood. Being the first year I would have wood under the tires and landing gear for the tires and the new concrete. I'd consider with the new concrete raising with the jacks and maybe lifting the tires off the concrete with hydraulic jacks.

RE: Preferred Topsail sites?

We like the 100's also. First trip there we understood the walk down to the ocean was a short walk. Man were we wrong! We walked and walked to get down there. The trip back we waited for the tram. Every trip after was tram only! LOL We really like Topsail though. We also visited the Garden of Eden and the Wesley Estate that is close by. It is a very interesting a peaceful place.

RE: Not too early for Halloween, have been on a spooky campsite?

https://i.imgur.com/TetheXL.jpgWe took a trip to the LBL a couple years ago and I asked my wife if we could spend a few days in a more remote area so I could bowhunt while we were there. We found a remote area where we could be by ourselves and set up. If you are familiar with the area you know there are a lot of old farmsteads with family cemeteries by them. I scouted the first day and found some good deer activity next to one of the cemeteries. I set up a trail camera to see what was moving thru before setting a stand. I had a real uneasy feeling there like I was being watched. Next morning this was on the camera. My wife wouldn't stay there afterwards. I wonder who the creepy kid is hanging out with the deer. What a weird photo. Did you feel like you saw a ghost or what? Only thing it could have been is a ghost at night in an old cemetery!

RE: casino camping

On a couple of our trips to the coast we have stayed at the Vicksburg, Ms. casino campground. It was great and a tram came right to our door with a phone call to pick us up and take us back to our unit. We did not gamble but, used the restaurants and enjoyed them. They are on our stay list if we make it by there again. Very friendly people there and a very clean campground.

RE: USS Alabama

They also have a pet kennel there too. We were there last Jan. and while we were inside our dogs stayed in one. Even though they don't have someone supervising them all the time a couple of the guys kept an eye on ours. Had a great visit and enjoyed it very much.

RE: Service, landing gear down, or while still hooked to truck?

I'm with Old-biscuits thought. I changed axles with the landing gear and jacks with jack stand supporting the weight. Very stable and I had mine up several days.

RE: Slight smell where the LP Gas cylinders are located normal?

I have had to replace my regulators and hoses on 2 of my last 3 5th wheels. All were used and at least two years old. All different brands. Must be a recurring problem.

RE: Harbor Freight solar working great!!

Do you have an interrupter to keep the panels from over charging or are you monitoring the batteries and disconnecting when they are full?

RV parks near Geogretown, Ky

Thinking of going to the Rode to the Horse next March. Does anyone have suggestions for good RV parks near Georgetown, Ky.? Also what to expect for temperatures that time of year.
