RE: Dry camping in SW Utah

You might look at Valley of the Gods BLM just north of Monument Valley in SE Utah. Access is UT 261 off of US 163 just north of Mexican Hat. When we drove through a few years ago there were a few C's and trailers boondocking there. Gooseneck State Park is also close by.

RE: Charleston SC and Savannah Ga

If you cannot get reservations for James Island, we have found Oak Plantation to be a well run park and easily access to Charleston area. We have also found Creekfire Resort to be a good alternative to Skidaway Park if cannot get into the state park.

RE: Question for Florida sticks and bricks owners

We have been gone during the summer since 2008 and have left the AC on with thermostat set to 85° and experienced absolutely no mold problems or other adverse effects that may arise from high humidity or temperatures. We do place a large container of DampRid in our second car that is left there to prevent mold on the leather surfaces in it, we learned that the hard way. You may want to turn you water heater off as well as your water supply to prevent flooding in the case of a leak. Our daughter comes over every month or so and flushes the toilets (after turning the water back on) to prevent the water from drying out and getting sewer gases in the house. I have heard of some people putting plastic wrap over the water in the toilet to do the same.

RE: Rapid City Area RV Parks

We have stayed at Custer State Park at the Gamelodge Campground several times and enjoyed it very much but it can be difficult to get reservations. It has 50 amp electric only with water and dump station available near the sites. If you want full hookup, Elkhorn Ridge near Spearfish is a very nice option.

RE: New Mexico Rt.82, Artesia to Alamogordo ?

We made that ride on 2011 with our 40 MH puling a Jeep Liberty. You can read my write-up of that trip on our blog. As long as you keep your speed down coming down from Cloudcroft, you shouldn't have any trouble.

RE: Ideas for Vancouver, Whistler & Washington

We really enjoyed the Washington State International Kite Festival a few years back at Long Beach, WA during the third week of August. You can check our blog entry for pictures and more info about our stay. The previous entry covers the campground we stayed at.

RE: OK to FL

For Memphis I would stay at Tom Sawyer's RV Park in West Memphis, right on the Mississippi River and very relaxing. For Percy Priest try to stay in site 41 of the Seven Points COE - all of the lakefront sites are nice but 41 is huge and very nice - of course, once the six months window opens you will need to be online to nab one of them, especially on a weekend! I assume you will be staying at Anchor Down in Dandridge. Virginia is going to be a bit out of your way. Little Creek is a nice military park in Virginia Beach. In Savannah, Skidaway Island State Park is one of our favorites though Creek Fire RV Resort is also very nice. You should also enjoy Pelican Bay at Mayport if you can get in. Jacksonville doesn't have a lot of choices though Pecan Park right off I-95 just north of the airport and there is also Flamingo Lake is a few miles west of Jax just off I-295. Stagecoach in St. Augustine is also a good choice - a good distance from the beach but very close to the outlet shopping centers. It sounds like a very nice trip - just make sure you get your reservations as soon as possible!

RE: Skating in Ottawa

And just for those that may not realize it: -40°C is also -40°F, the only temperature where Fahrenheit and Centigrade are equal!

RE: Is this forum dying?

Got to have an app on a phone for the younger crowd to use it! I do notice that IRV2 is still pretty active but it is also has less traffic than in earlier days.

RE: Albuquerque Rv campground?

When we visited that area we always preferred staying at Cochiti Lake COE about halfway between ABQ and Sante Fe. Our favorite campsite there was Site 59 in the Buffalo Loop. Water and 50 amp available at the campsite with a dump station at the entrance.

RE: Redwoods...Ave of the Giants and Newton Drury Pkwy

I would suggest you spend a couple of nights at the Ancient Redwoods RV Park right on the Avenue of the Giants and use your tow car to explore the area. It's a great RV Park and very convenient for seeing the area.

RE: Hwy 93 from Missoula to Salmon, ID.

A good portion of it is right alongside the Salmon River so it is a little twisty-turny but very doable as long as you don't take the curves too fast. When we did it a few years back in our 40' Phaeton pulling a Jeep, we found it to be very enjoyable and scenic. We spent a couple of nights at the Canyon Pines RV Resort about 9 miles south of Riggins and stayed in site 31 which is a pull-through right on the river and found it to be delightful, however there was no cell service when we were there though there may be now.

RE: Route from Billings to St Mary KOA East Glacier

Other posters have recommended Duck Lake Rd, MT 464, as flatter and straighter. I would agree with the other posters here. 464 from Browning to St. Mary is a much easier drive than 89. Besides being pretty twisty/turny, 89 has a significant down grade for a couple of miles coming down to St. Mary that most like to avoid - it will definitely exercise your braking system! 464 is a very nice drive and only adds about 10 miles which can almost be driven faster than taking 89 through the mountains.

RE: Just beginning to do homework

OP, it sounds like you have done quite a bit of research but I think your timeline is still quite a bit rushed. You may want to look at our 2009 Trip to see how and what all we did on our little over six-month trip. We went from NE Florida so it was a little farther than yours will be but it was still 13,000 miles and that didn't include going up the Inside Passage on the Marine Ferry. Their is an expense summary at the end of the trip report you may also find useful though that was in 2009 when gas was more expensive than now but other things are more expensive now. As others have mentioned, take your time going through British Columbia and Alberta as that is some of the best scenery on the trip, especially the Icefield Parkway between Banff and Jasper National Parks, We used the Church book and Milepost for most of our planning as others have mentioned. I would suggest getting the Canada Annual Discovery Pass to save money while in Canada and the Alaska Toursaver Coupon Book to get two for one pricing on most of the tours you will want to take. Between the two, we saved close to a thousand dollars. Most importantly, just take your time and enjoy it. There is so much to see you will need some down time to just relax and breathe!

RE: Safety issue in handicapped bathrooms

I design restroom layouts and specify components as part of my job. There are not many option variables as we need to strictly stay within the parameters of ANSI 117.1 guidelines (ADA is a whole other matter.) Some of the few alternates are knurled and peened surfaces ILO of typical satin nickel finishes. https://i.imgur.com/LUmhtdhl.jpg Though possible, there is not much variation as a whole as the overall dimensions must be adhered. One of the largest suppliers of grab bars with whom I deal does not offer the knurled option in their catalog. Ed, do you think the peened surface would make a difference? I have installed the peened surface grab bars from Lowes and HD in our bath at our S&B and on the outside stairs at our summer place in Waynesville, NC. They have proved to be very resistant to slipping and provide all the support we need, even when wet.

RE: Lessons Learned From RV Cover Erection

The main thing I learned is to overbuild. If you build for a specific sized current RV, you will need to do it again if you get something larger. We built a 40 foot long cover for our 35 foot MH then two years later bought a 40 foot MH. Needed to expand the cover but couldn't find anyone to do it!

RE: Help getting fridge to run while underway

Still don't know what kind of rig it is so will not waste time guessing. It sounds like a 12V problem that occurred when the system switched from the converter to the alternator and perhaps popped a circuit breaker but really need more info.

RE: Help getting fridge to run while underway

It would help TREMENDOUSLY if we knew the make, model and year of your motorhome!!! They are all different and each has its own idiosyncrasies.
