RE: Chinese RV tires... holding up!

goodyear.com no longer has information about the Endurance tires. I ordered mine the end of June from Amazon and they were shipped from Goodyear, AZ. At that time, they were on the Goodyear site.

RE: Article - Best Campground in Every State

I agree with the South Carolina choice and mostly RVs are there.

RE: Cracked tires

Change all. If you have a blowout it can cause significant damage.

RE: Bad lands area

In Custer SP the Needles Highway is a great drive. However, not for an RV.

RE: Windows 11 compatibility Check up for your PC or laptop

Support for Windows 7 ended this past January. You are vulnerable if you are online with it.

RE: Chinese RV tires... holding up!

I had to replace 3 Castle Rocks in a week and a half this month. First was spare. Doing my pressure checks prior to trip and spare had a strange bulge. Got that replaced. On my trip drivers side tire blew out and damaged my slide out, it will not fully open now. Had that tire replaced. Trip home, passenger side, tire blew. My new Goodyear tires are coming today. I took one of the surviving Castle Rocks off yesterday. As I was rolling it I noticed the tread curved in one area. No bulge, but not straight. I always kept my pressure correct and my goal was to get thru this last trip and get new tires before my August trip. Well, I am keeping to my goal but not in the manner I wanted. My TT is 2019 and I have had it less than 3 years, so tires were not that old. My pressure checks include visual inspection looking for cracks/chips/bulges. On my last trip on the way home we stopped at a rest stop and did a check also, all looked good. I was hoping if I treated my China Bombs correctly all would be well, but I wasn't going to push my luck too far. 3 tires in a week and a half is makes one seriously question the quality.

RE: Using a roku while camping

I have used a Roku, as that is what I prefer at home, but in the 5er we use a Chromecast. It seems to work faster when not leaving it powered up and connected constantly. At least that is my experience. Same here. I download content before heading out and stream it via Chromecast. While Chromecast needs WiFi your actual content is on phone/tablet so you are not streaming it off the internet and using gobs of data.

Tires - Freedom Hauler

Looking to replace tires on TT. Local dealer said they cannot get Goodyear Endurance but provided me with a quote for Freedom Hauler tires. Company that makes them is Transamerica based in Memphis, TN. Anyone have any info on these? http://www.freedomhaulertires.com/

RE: Las Vegas

Airport to Casino. Casino to get rental car. You don't rent a car at the airport? Rented car from rental downtown. Cost was significantly cheaper than getting car at airport.

RE: Which park

Huntington has the best beach, probably best in SC. It it is huge. It is close to MB if you are in to that type of thing. Edisto is known for the shells. Two campgrounds. One along the beach, the other about a mile away and you travel a state road to get their. Neither has full hookups. The one dump station is on the state road, not in either of the campgrounds. Hunting Island is beautiful but the ocean is claiming the island back. They have lost about 80 campsites to the ocean. When walking the beach at lower tides you can see remnants of the lost campsites.

RE: Las Vegas

Was at LV couple weeks ago and highly recommend UBER once you find a place that may not be within walking distance. Had never used UBER before but it worked out great. Airport to Casino. Casino to get rental car. Both times took less than 10 min for driver to show up and cost was worth it.

RE: Winterizing the coffee maker

Sorry I forgot to warn you. ;) But, in my camper I use a peculator on the stove top. I don't worry about it freezing. :) At the end of the day nothing beats peculator coffee, especially a non modern one. New ones perc too fast.

RE: Best Cell Phone App

Doesn't WAZE requie Internet access? If so, it's of no use in many places in the western U.S. where we travel. We prefer complete independence from the Internet, so we use detailed map atlas books and our satellite-based Garmin unit with it's free updates so we can keep it always up to date for free. TomTom, though not free, does not need internet. Maps updated once a quarter. Needs internet for real time traffic, but if you are where there is no internet, traffic probably not an issue.

RE: Navigation

I always used TomTom devices and when the last one died I use TomTom on my phone. There is an annual subscription which I am fine with. When things get complicated it zooms in and provides excellent lane guidance, voice and visual. Maps are updated once a quarter. Real time traffic information is good as well. Maps are downloaded onto your device. Quite often we will be out of reach of a cell tower and on a whim decide to go somewhere. With google maps and no cell service this can be a problem.

RE: surge protector and water filters

We take a 5 gallon water tote for drinking water, coffee and ice. so don't worry about a filter. Once we finish at the dump station whatever is left in the water tote gets poured down the toilet to slosh around on the trip home. Had a surge protector that died right after the warranty expired. Need to get a good one but currently test power at post before plugging in.

RE: Ideal RV space size for new park?

I always prefer angled. My last this of 2020 I had booked a spot that technically was too small for my TT and I kinda dreaded getting into the site for the whole year before the trip. It ended up being an awesome size site. Not much of an angled site either. The problem with backing in is the obstacles you have to maneuver around. Not everyone is good at that. I actually had a camping neighbor come over and give me kudos after I got the TT in. I think I only had to pull forward once to get it right.

RE: Charleston SC

X5 Very close to civilization but doesn't feel that way. Awesome biking trails, paved. Very close and easy to get to anywhere around Charleston. Great campground to take kids. We went last year in June and immediately booked for June 2021 as soon as we got home. Taking a couple grandkids this year. Only downside is some sites flood after a heavy downpour. Rode our bikes around after a storm and picked good sites for future trips. 29, 110, 75. 29 is a drive thru and is the best in my opinion. We stayed in 75 last year and it was a pretty good site, but it flooded.

RE: Chipmunks

Squirrels will get rid of chipmunks, get a squirrel. Then get a woodchucks to take care of the squirrels? One year I took out 20+ squirrel's with a pellet gun. They had backups ready to go. As soon as I took one out a backup showed up. I have a Red Shoulder Hawk couple that lives on the property and I am sure they help, but my numbers stay rather steady. One of out our cats decapitated one one and used the head as a ball. Just depends on his mood at the time though, not reliable.
