RE: Carolina Pines RV Resort Myrtle Beach

I Understand you disappointment however a place to stay without full amenities beats no place to stay at all. At this point if you can't find anything else why not just stay there? x2 considering the area and how crowded rv parks, hotels, and condos are there in the summer

RE: Upgrading to electric stabilizer jacks

both our current TT and previous had/has electric stabilizers. i have had no problems with them. i wouldn't require them on future purchase, manual would be fine for me. lowering and raising the electric ones do give my wife something to do setting up and breaking down the camper that makes her feel important

RE: New - Buying a Tralier - No Clue What I'm Doing

As a rule trailers are meant for part time leisure occupancy. Those who are full time have the gear and experience needed. good point here. wife and i are experienced rv'ers and have traveled all over the east coast north and south. we are not experienced enough to full-time even though we have the equipment

RE: Myrtle Beach

I would recommend Huntington Beach State Park. A little further south but still am easy drive to any of the attractions in MB. It has the best beach in the area. Decades ago they built a jetty to keep 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. Huntington Beach SP is our favorite too. Myrtle Beach SP is our 2nd favorite. Both are much quieter and less hazardous than the cgs with golf carts running all over everyone. my thoughts exactly MOD'S EDIT: I fixed the quote for you.

RE: Two Air Conditioners

how ironic we went from a 33ft TT to a 37 foot 3 slide TT last fall also what models did you trade in and currently own? our 37ft has only 1 15btu, and is prepped for a bedroom unit if we wanted to add. the one ac can keep things about 10 to 15 degrees cooler than outside if in full sun. shade helps. we are 50 amp but stay at alot of state parks with only 30amp available so i dont plan on adding 2nd unit. you should be good to go with 2.

RE: Slide vs no slide

You asked how much you would miss the slide. No one knows but you. I say the more slides the better. x2 we went from 1 living room slide to a 37ft rear living 3 slide TT more room the better for myself, wife and 4 small dogs to each his own. we prefer to spend as much time as possible outside the camper, however, we "glamp" 1 or 2 weekends all year long as well as longer trips. there are alot of times when its extremely hot, extremely cold, raining, etc. we love the space for relaxing when outside is not so comfortable. we don't only love the outdoor life, we use our camper to explore different parts of the country and it makes a nice comfortable, big home base

RE: Campgrounds costing less than $20 per night

And that's in CA! My thought exactly it probably costs more than that to get into a state park out there, never mind camping. I was stunned at the entry fee for Pt Sur State Park and that was 15 years ago. I think that was why I posted the question. There are quite a few references now to $50+ per night campgrounds and even a few $100+ per night sites. So why was the reviewer of Ackerman worried about $16? i have been working in retail sales for almost 30 years. there are a large number of people out there that would even complain about a 25 cent increase. thats how some people's mind work.

RE: Muffin fan in Norcold fridge

For a small frig like you have and for non-full time use maybe something like this will work and be a very simple solution... Runs continuously for 30 days on a couple of "D" batteries. We had one in our pop-up and it worked great. Moved a good deal of air around. Frig Fan...LINK this is what we use in our dometic long run time on 2 batteries. does help keep things cooler in hot weather

RE: Traveling to Myrtle beach

If heading to Myrtle from Wythville there is no reason to go towards Charlotte you go from 77 to 52 south through Winston Salem and then hit I74 towards state rt 38 which takes you to highway 501 which will take you straight into Myrtle depending on which campground you are going to you may want to cut off 501 and hit 544 which takes you to south myrtle straight into Ocean Lakes Campground area. Lakewood is a second from the intersection also and the state park is another minute up the road from there. x2 on this

RE: Replacing dinette seat cushion foam

I went to my local upholstery shop, picked the firmness I wanted and had them blow the new foam panels into the existing fabric covers. MUCH better. x2 local upholstery shops are usually great place to work with.

RE: Inverter Generator

Hi, That's easily enough power--but I'd go Champion 3400 with remote electric start. x2 my champion 3400 duel fuel runs our 15k btu with no problems even on propane, not using eco mode. plus other non 12 volt things. i do not try to run the microwave or coffee maker at the same time.

RE: Camping World about to go under??

In response to the OP's concern about the falling sky... I've said on here before and I'll say it again: none of us have the capacity to understand the financial maneuvering that takes place at companies like this. What we might view as falling stock prices, liquidations, etc., the lawyers and accountants might view as tax liability reductions and higher shareholder distribution opportunities. We scratch our head when we read stories about companies like this paying virtually zero taxes, but they've just figured out how to game the system. So don't worry about your Visa points or warranty service or anything like that. CW ain't going nowhere. bingo, you nailed it

RE: NW Raleigh camping for December

wife and i stayed at falls lake state park last december for a long weekend. nice large sites available and no problem with water and electric but weather was mild. not a bad drive into raleigh. i have friends from richmond va that periodically stay at state fair campground. they like it, full hookups, no reservations taken i believe.

RE: Been debating removing built in dinette/ bed...

in our previous TT we had a dinette booth, couch and 2 small recliners. im a big guy so sitting and eating at dinette was not comfortable. i removed the table and unscrewed one of the dinette seats and turned it sideways against outside wall and against the other dinette seat. basically made a small Lshaped sofa. lost a bit of storage but my wide enjoyed sitting and laying on it reading or watching tv while i had the large sofa. just she and i so we ate off tv trays when not eating outside camper. before we traded it in on current TT i replaced everything back to original locations.

RE: Tow Vehicle question

I know it's all the rage now....in-dash nav systems, but just be aware that to up date them from time to time to the latest maps may cost you. I have seen $140 for each up date. From Edmunds .....Updates: The maps on factory systems are typically as current as the vehicle's model year. If you want to update the maps, you need to purchase a memory card or, for an older vehicle, a DVD. These can cost $75-$200. I like Garmin's with life time map updates. good advice my wife's ford explorer in dash gps is no where as accurate as my trusty life time maps update garmin,,, or google maps
