RE: Driving from Albuquerque to Orlando in October

I wouldn't go any way that put me anywhere near Dallas/Ft Worth or Houston. Did it once and sat in traffic for hours and it wasn't rush hour. I'd go our of my way to avoid them.

RE: Long Term RV Repairs

We've been on the road 9 years and have never had to leave our rig anywhere. Hope that doesn't change, but if it did, we would stay in a hotel. If it's as a result of an accident our insurance will reimburse us for the cost of the room and other extra expenses.

RE: Dogs

We are seasonals in a county park and there are many dogs here with both the seasonal people and the weekenders or vacationers that come in. There has not been any problem here and there hasn't been a single dog that barked and barked. One reason --- there is a rule that a dog cannot be outside without a human also present. They also do not allow dog to be tied out. If your dog is out, it is on a leash within 6 ft of you, or sitting next to you, or you are playing with it. Dogs are not to be left unattended, period. You seldom even hear a dog bark more than once or twice and the owner is quieting it. There is a mixture of size and breed with many people owning more than 1. There are 72 sites and a group area camping in this park.

RE: Travel Trailer vs. Motorhome (my situation)

I would also urge you to look at used units. The new ones are not trouble free so you should plan on sticking around your area for a good while until you get all the bugs worked out. I would consider a 4-5 yr old one. If someone gets rid of it in the first year or two, maybe it had problems. If they kept one 4-5 yrs then the bugs should be worked out or they wouldn't have kept it that long. We purchased a 10 yrs old motorhome, now 19 years old and we have had very few problems. Things like replace circuit boards, fan covers, engine coolant overflow bottle, grab bar on the outside, lens covers. The rest were things you have to do to a car - new tires, serpentine belt, radiator flush, brakes etc. They last if you take care of them. We are still happy with our purchase.

RE: RV Tank Maintenance

We can tell when ours is getting full, so don't worry about the tank sensors/gauges anyway. We have tried various things suggested on here and some worked for a couple weeks. I think most methods suggested are for weekenders who drive, dump and flush their tanks every few weekends.

RE: RV Parks in/near Ruidoso, NM

Any parks in the area may be full with seasonals yet at that time of year. We tried to find a park there and all were full for the summer with seasonals from mostly TX. It's still hot in Sept at the lower elevations so - good luck.

RE: Seasonal Site

We are seasonal for our 1st summer in our motorhome. We will keep this as we still travel, but eventually we will probably do what our neighbors did. They sold the motorhome, purchased a brand new trailer that will sit in MI for summers. They have a park model in Florida. They will now just drive between the two with their car.

RE: Opinion on Resort Fees ?

My understanding is that the resort fee is added for anyone who is not a paying member of the resort, as in they purchased a membership or are owners of a lot in the park.

RE: Poplar Bluff, MO

We found that COE this spring and stayed for 10 days. Loved it.

RE: Dead battery so quickly?

We just had this with a brand new battery. It was defective and returned for a full refund. New batter works fine.

RE: Northern Michigan advice

Pictured Rocks is a couple hours away. Take the boat tour - beautiful place.

RE: Electric Lawnmowers

Here where we are seasonals for the summer (MI) the park mows, usually once per week and trims every 2 or 3 weeks, but, they do not like to get too close to any of the campers things. So, many have their own electric trimmer to get areas the park doesn't, or spiff it up if they have someone coming, small blowers for blowing leaves off their patio rugs or decks. We did see several parks when looking that required a seasonal camper to mow their own lot.

RE: How about some common courtesy...

And, when you are parked somewhere like a scenic overlook rest stop that has rv parking, and you go to bed at 8pm and are not using your AC because it's only 70 out and you are not watching tv -- It is not necessary to run your generator all night long -- all night long --- for nothing! Keeping everyone else awake.

RE: Campgrounds

Allstays is great but we use every site that has been mentioned. Google maps is also great. Just use the search box after getting to the page and ask for rv parks and campgrounds near ______________.

RE: I hate dinettes

We have a dinette -- the key is quality foam that is 3" or more thick. Yes, some RV's do have comfortable seating. We are full-time, so this is our home. We eat inside most of the time unless we have guests and it's nice weather. We also have a sofa /full size and an upholstered chair. There is a whole lot of storage under our dinette seats also.

RE: Tote question

For those saying, book a FHU site - there are many many parks that do not even have FHU sites. They are still great parks to camp at, but adjustments must be made. We spent a summer using a tote. Had the biggest 4 wheel one and pulled it slowly to the dump station fastened to the hitch on our jeep. We do try not to use it though and prefer FHU when possible.

RE: FDA lists brands of dog food linked to DCM

I have seen a couple different news announcements of this in the last couple of days. Our dog's food is wheat, corn, soy free, but not totally grain free and I didn't see any of the filler potatoes, peas, legumes listed. I'll be watching for any additional information about this though.

RE: Roadside Assistance Question

We are in a motorhome and have Coachnet. They do offer for towables also.

RE: Satelite Internet

We have had a jetpack mobile internet device (cost us $99 to buy device) and then a monthly plan and got internet even in the middle of the forest, 24 miles from a medium size town - no cell service though. We now have a car connect mobile device from AT & T and have had internet everywhere we have been including AZ, NM and TX. Some area were real remote and large city was 70 miles away. No cell, but had internet. That is why we don't rely on our cell phone for internet but have a stand alone device. We have been too many areas with no cell service in our full-time travels the past 9 years. We changed service just because the current is cheaper per month. If there is a particular area you plan to be, check the data coverage maps(different than cell coverage) for the carriers and see who provides service. Sometimes is can be slow, but it's still there and usable.

RE: Blade Seal

When ours starts not holding water, we usually have to clean mineral and lime deposits off the seal, and then it works fine. Ours is 19 yrs old and still doing good. We use some Lime Away in a little water and let it sit there for about half hour, then use a toilet brush on the seal. Rinse toilet, put a little water back in and good to go.
