RE: Charlotte, N.Carolina thru or around?

You will likely have few if any problems is you go through on 77. We usually have problems on northbound just south of Statesville near the lake. Many of the NASCAR types live on the lake and there is a lot of traffic most any time of the day, including early morning in the southbound lanes heading toward CHarlotte. If you happen to be coming north on I-85 I suggest cutting north on US 321 at Gastonia and up to I-40 then up to Statesville and I-77. This will put you above the lake and most of Statesville

RE: Camping at Beverly Beach Camptown Resort

not that great. Beach front - back in and the neighbor pulls in. Both cannot open their awnings at the same time because the sites are so close together. We will not stay there again, or if we HAVE to it will be on the back row. On-shore breeze with any strength will cover your RV with salt spray. Too pricey for what you get.

RE: Loveland CO

There is Riverview just west of Loveland (toward Estes Park) it has FHU. Problem there is the interior roads are dirt and when it is dry, the dust is pretty intense. We stayed there a few days a couple of years ago until a fire up the road caused the road to RMNP to be shut down. Our site was on the river and the sound of the rushing water was nice. We were able to get a satellite signal believe it or not! In the evening a water truck came by a couple of times and turned the powdery dust into sticky mud for a couple or three hours. It is not the worst place we have stayed, but it is certainly not the nicest either. We would likely stay there again if we were in that area

RE: Hunting Island / Savannah / Charleston

St. Helena Parish Chapel of Ease Ruins, Beaufort County (S.C. Sec. Rd. 45, St. Helena Island) Mid 1700s church built with tabby and the associated grounds. interesting and even more so if you have kids who love ghost stories

RE: Need Advice re: Campgrounds in Northern Georgia

Not to hijack the OP's post, but for those of you who have been to Unicoi, I've heard it is tight spots, and narrow roads to get in. But, when I go to the site, they talk about 40 ft spots. So, is it a tight fit, or are roads easily navigable, and decent size spots? Also, looks like the only way to check if there are spots available is via phone. Trying to make reservations on the website, it takes me to cabin/room reservations only. Mike It is tight, too tight for us in a 40 footer and quite steep as well. Also take Black Rock Mtn SP off the list if you have a rig much bigger than a pop up. Very narrow and very steep. In Mountain City just north of the CLayton on US441

RE: Iron Mountain Road - Route 16A in Custer State Park SD

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v361/zzmr286/Needles.jpg No problem! You can do it!! That is NOT the Iron Mtn Road. That is needles highway. Leaves Custer city and loop up through the Eye of the Needle and then back down, ending in CSP. Iron Mtn runs from just outside the east entrance of CSP to Rushmore. There are two or three tunnels and a couple or three pigtail bridges on this road. I have seen at least one class C in this road. the tunnels looks smaller than they actually measure, but it is a poor idea to drive it in anything other than a regular car or truck IMHO

RE: Campgrounds near Denver that do not permit campfires

You know, it has been some time since I actually saw a campfire in an RV park. We used to have a community fire years ago, but so many people have problems with smoke and the associated odors we don't even suggest it nor do we have one. Many if not most USFS CGs don't allow them. Not sure about state campgrounds

RE: Dash air vs generator

We just finished a multi-thousand trip around the central and western states. It got HOT, especially in a MH with the majority of the paint black. That said, we ran max dash A/C and the genset to run the roof air on the front unit. It worked but was not as comfortable as I wish we had been. Fuel mileage was satisfactory with an average of 7.5 mpg. I found out the mileage gets better if I let the cruise control work while on the open road. Sweet spot seems to be around 58-62 mph. I was pleased with this.

RE: Bad afternoon Southbound on I-95 in South Carolina

Not unusual for the SC/Georgia I guess. Seems like every time am southbound in that area there is a slowdown or stop. Never been in one 6 miles long thank goodness.

RE: Engine replacement

Jasper crate engine would be my choice for a replacement. They have warranties on engines and trannies. My F-250 diesel gave up after I towed too long and too heavy in overdrive. Much better tranny than I had work wise. Bigger cooling system for it also

RE: Help! Anyone know why generator won't retract?

See if there is adequate fluid in the system for the hydraulics to work properly. Had that problem with jacks on our coach OOOPS! Looks like we were a few seconds apart on a reply

RE: Taking to the friendly skies......

TSA here in Atlanta has been backed up for hours lately. I believe the longest has been three. I am not sure they are any more secure or perhaps this is intentional. The mayor (City of Atlanta owns the airport) just fired the airport director. Not sure it is out of frustration of improvement hopes. I simply will not fly out of Atlanta any more. Birmingham or Charlotte for me. If ATL is a required point in your transit, don't go outside the 'secure' areas.

RE: exposed plywood on bottom?

Is part of this thread missing? Looks like there out to be some sort set-up statement of what this is a picture of.

RE: Glacier park Montana

We stayed at Glacier CG a few years ago when we had a 36 foot coach and had no problems with the MH and tow. It is 'in the woods' but the access roads were fine. 42 foot fiver might be a little tight however, when trying to maneuver into some of the sites on the upper side. The staff was great with recommendations of sites to see and local information/history.

RE: the size of Yellowstone

and one bison going for a stroll can back up traffic on all 198 miles or at least it seems that way. Well said! Or a bear walks within sight of the roadway

RE: Badlands NP-Day Visit ?s

If you are coming in the summer, keep in mind that it gets HOT in the Badlands, unlike the Hills that are relatively cool by comparison. Couple or three hours, then stop at Wall and have a cool drink before you head on to Rapid

RE: 3 week trip from Atlanta to Yellowstone

If you are doing the Black Hills on the way out, I suggest the following: I-75 to Chattanooga, then I-24 to Nashville. Nashville to Paducah and overnite at Duck Creek. Cross the river at Metropolis. Stay on I-24 up to I-57 and continue past the St Louis exit (I-70) too much traffic and jams coming across Missouri. Go I-80 across Iowa (better scenery) lot of places to overnite along that route. I-80 west to I-680 for a short distance to I-29 thru Sioux City and up to I-90 and then west at Sioux Falls. You can overnite for free at Cabelas in Mitchell. straight west to the Hills at Rapid City. We run this route for the quickest way to Custer each year. It might not suit if you want to see scenery, because there is nothing scenic with mile after mile of concrete and asphalt. However it is a rapid way to get where it gets really beautiful

RE: Parking at Wall Drug

Actually there are some good quality products there - along with some tourist junk. Food is sorta basic junk. Coffee is semi-decent if it is fresh. there are a few RV parks in Wall and for some reason, I think Wall Drug has one as well. We have stayed a few times at Arrow while heading west. FHU etc. The storms coming out of the west can be fierce there as well.

RE: Watch your speed in NC

For you people who "And I don't care how many other vehicles are behind me. Never have worried about them!" Since you don't care about the vehicles behind you (obviously you care only for your self), would you please have just a little consideration for those who need/want to get around you and keep in the right lane? Just because you have all the time in the world, there are truckers and others who still have a job and schedules to meet. Keep out of the left lane!
