RE: Grand Canyon 2020

Been researching and am going to April 2021. From what I have researched the jest is if you only get to the Grand Canyon once, then go to the south rim. Also read that if you are willing to hike just 15-30 minutes that the people really thin out. For an April 2021 trip I will start planning and booking things Spring of 2020.

RE: Newbies

When the wife and I started looking we went to a CW just to look. All we wanted to do was look and get an idea of what we wanted. There was no pressure from the dealers. In fact, it was such a hot day they had no desire to go in the units, they left us alone to look. We then had a idea of what we wanted. Did a lot of research on line and narrowed it down to a couple different models. Went back to CW and said this is what we want to look at. Again, no pressure. We knew what we wanted to look at and they didn't try to steer us to something else. Worked for us.

RE: Southern destination w kids week of New years? Where to go?

Check this link out for Winter activities in Myrtle Beach. Myrtle Beach has become a all year place, but it will be too cold to swim. http://www.myrtlebeachsnowbirds.com/area-attractions-for-snowbirds.php

RE: Southern destination w kids week of New years? Where to go?

Myrtle Beach is not totally dead and it is actually a good time to go.

RE: Black holding tank censors

My sensor was doing the same thing. I use Tank Busters. It is less than $10 for four packs. Filled tanks with it it, let it set overnight, drain, filled again, drained, sensor good again. I do this with grey, black and portable tank. Waste of money? Nah, 4 treatments for less than $10, worth it if it works.

RE: How many people have cameras on trailer

It is very nice to have when travelling down the road to see what is behind you and certainly aids when changing lanes. It is somewhat useful when backing up but I still require a spotter as I worry more about what is beside me in blind spots.

RE: New style entry steps

You have to make sure that they are level. When we first got our camper we didn't bother leveling them properly and they bent near where they are attached to camper, hinge area. The result was that when camping in order to close the door the step angle was horrible. Lesson learn. I was able to use a clamp and bend them back. While home just doing camper chores we use the fold out stairs at the bathroom entrance. For trips, I will use various blocks to make sure it is level and I can close the door, and not bend them again. And yes, there is a pile of dirt when you swing them in. I think I would prefer pull out on the main entrance. Haven't seen an easy way to switch to them. The bathroom door has something to mount them to, the main entrance does not.

RE: Well.....we've done it again

Parents always took us tent camping. Cheap vacation for 7 kids. After we all moved out they upgraded to a pop up. Got too old to go camping so I got it. Got a lot of years out of it but it needed some major ceiling work so sold it. Went back to tent camping for a few years and decided we wanted the comfort of heat and air, ability to have it packed and hit the road and relativity easy setup. If weather is bad, so what. Better to be stuck in a camper on a rainy day than be at the office on a sunny day. Last fall got a TT and love it. Ours is a bunk house which at first we did not want. However, those bunks are great for putting suitcases and other stuff. We are taking our 6 year old grand daughter camping in a couple of weeks When we bought it the goal was at least 4 trips a year, we will have 5 this year. Tent->Pop Up->Tent->TT.

RE: Outer Banks National Park Service campgrounds

Do the Oregon sites have Water and Electric? From the website it looks just like electric. Website a little confusing, perhaps because I look at at when I wake up at 5am and am not functioning on all cylinders. While the site says water hookups when you look at reservation section I see electric hookups but no mention of water. We want to do Outer Banks but that trip will probably be in a year or two. Have looked at the commercial CGs, any comments on those?

RE: Myrtle Beach

Another plus for Hunting Beach is Murrells Inlet is real close, good restaurants there.

RE: Mini queen bed problem and any custom ideas

The first thing we did when we bought our TT last Fall was to order a new bed. Basically it was the most expensive one that Camping World had but we have been very happy with it. When we were shopping for our TT we knew from the get go that the mattress was not good. When we went to pick up the camper we had them take the mattress out before taking it home. We didn't want to deal with getting rid of it.

RE: Myrtle Beach

I would recommend Huntington Beach State Park. A little further south but still an easy drive to any of the attractions in MB. It has the best beach in the area. Decades ago they built a jetty to control beach erosion in MB. Didn't work. All the sand they dump on MB beaches finds its way to Huntington Beach, so the beach is getting bigger. I like MB State Park, but it is MUCH busier. It is also on the flight path for the airport. So around 6AM the jets starting coming and going. They are either landing or taking off right over the park and quite low at that point. However, it is late to schedule anything this year. I was looking last week at all the coastal parks for sites in 2020, and the pickings are already slim for next year.

RE: TT Steps

I was able to fix it by attaching a clamp and bending it back into proper position. I figured I was the one that got it out of position. Opening up and not properly leveling the stairs just because we were just doing a couple of things. Lesson learned!

RE: Jayco vs. Forest River

I purchased a Forest River last Fall and am very happy with it. After my 2nd trip took it in to have 4+ things fixed under warranty. All of the items were various components that are pretty much in all brands.

RE: TT Steps

Thinking they are bent. Will gets clamps and see if I can get them back where they belong.

TT Steps

My Grey Wolf has 2 set of stairs, main entrance and bathroom. The main entrance are two steps that swing up into the doorway when not in use. The bath room stairs fold under the trailer. Problem: The main stairs have a very funky angle, stairs are not level. If you adjust them to get rid of the funky angle and make them level then you cannot easily close the door. Am I missing something when adjusting them? We like bathroom stairs but don't really want that to be our main entrance. Thanks Paul

RE: Niagera Falls

The wife and I spent a week there, didn't camp, and did something different everyday. You can probably do a different falls/river activity 4-5 days. The Queens highway has wineries at just about every exit on the way to Toronto. Toronto is worth a day visit and is a short drive. There is a casino. Old Fort Niagara, 300 years old. Anyway, we spent a week and didn't do everything.

RE: Beginner Trailer Leveling Questions

Having a trailer supported on the far corners is absolutely incorrect because you will stress the frame to the maximum. I agree with this. I over did my stabilizers just a little bit and couldn't easily close my bathroom door.

RE: Beginner Trailer Leveling Questions

I use a Tire Changing Ramp for changing tires on a horse trailer and it works great, no jacks. My thought was this would work for the TT. Any thoughts on using this?

RE: Backup camera option

I went with the Furion and I am happy with it. You have to at least keep your running lights on for the system to work while travelling. It is nice seeing what is behind you and for making sure all is clear when changing lanes. Mounting and setup was VERY EASY. Some Amazon reviews stated it would lose connection when travelling at interstate speeds. The model I got has never lost connection and I don't even move the antenna on the video end at all. I leave it in its storage position. I have a 35' TT and F250 with 8' bed the the camera and the video unit are a good distance apart. This is what I got: Furrion FOS43TASF Vision S Wireless Vehicle Observation System with 4.3-inch Monitor and Rear Sharkfin Camera
