RE: Gas Buddy 25 cents off ??

We use gas buddy online only to locate the lower prices as we travel. Works for us. When everyone is at 2.19 for gas and we find the station that's still at 1.72 to fill the motorhome, well worth our few minutes to use it.

RE: Insurance declared value of used motor home

A collector car is not insured with the same type of policy that a car or rv is. Unless maybe you have a vintage rv that is 25 yrs or older and in mint condition. Common for base value on a car or rv to start with the manufacturers suggested retail.

RE: Fridge not working

Freezer will usually cool first until cold, then the refrigerator. It may take several hours to notice much change, especially it if's hot outside or sun is shining on the frig area.

RE: Slightly Different Mattress Issue

The heavier the foam, the better it will be. The lightweight does practically nothing as you found out. We use a topper that is very comfortable, but heavy. It is about 5" thick. We have a platform bed.

RE: Why are people not opening new campgrounds/RV parks?

We usually only stay in a Walmart because there are no campgrounds around. This happens more when you do not travel the interstates. In a year, we may stay at a Walmart 5-6 nights out of 365 - we are full-time. Not everyone who parks at a Walmart is too cheap to pay for a campground.

RE: Road Conditions Utah rt 44

get Mountain Directory West , it will tell you what you need to know for any of the roads out there. Available as a book for purchase, or as a mobile app. Well worth it.

RE: Corona Camping

I think most privately owned campgrounds are open. Many are doing online reservation and payment, or by phone and assign you a site and you never meet face to face with anyone. It seems the campgrounds with no access or dayuse only or seasonal camper use only are city, county, state parks and forestry, coe etc. Some are open, some are not. If you use the rv parky site you should be able to find something wherever you decide to stop. Some are open, but facilities such as pools, restroom/showers/laundry are not open.

RE: MI extended stay at home

We are sitting in TX in our winter spot waiting to go to MI to our reserved seasonal site for the summer. We are inconvenienced and have had to change plans, but we fully support what the governor is doing. When it's safer, she will open the state, open camping and then we will go. It's really not a big deal to wear a mask when in an enclosed area or when you can't be 6' away from people. And for those with asthma -- lots of nurses have asthma too, and wear masks for 12 hour shifts. If they can do it - so can you!

RE: ohio state parks

RE: Improving Fridge Cooling

Not sitting so the sun hits that side of your unit is a big plus. When we had no choice, we added a small fan in the exterior compartment to help push the hot air up and out. That helped quite a bit. This was in 95-108 temps full sun. Norcold 1200. In the future, we will just try not to be in those conditions again.

RE: Confused and Frustrated

No advise other than, we went looking. Went into several rv's and for some reason the class A just felt like us. It kind of grabbed us, so we knew that was what we should buy. Go tour some trailers, fifth wheels, class c, class a . Maybe you will be drawn to something in particular over and over - that will tell you. Doesn't have to be new ones either. Buy the best used, but quality one you can afford.

RE: New Seasonal

We have a Progressive Industries surge protector that will cut power for either low or high power. We are full-time and it has cut power a couple of times when we had no idea there was a problem, and it wasn't someplace we had just hooked up at either. For sewer, hubby has a hinged piece of white gutter that he can take apart at the joint (easily) for a 4' section, or open up for an 8' section. The sewer hose lays in that and is at a nice angle to the drain. It also protects the hose from those guys with the weed whips.

RE: 20 year loan for RV?

Didn't take a 20 year loan, but took a 10 yr loan on a 10 year old higher end unit and we have not been sorry. If it's quality built, it will last a very long time. Much longer than 10 years. We have yet to replace even an appliance in ours. Only a couple of circuit boards, some new tires and normal maintenance. We will be keeping this one for a long while yet as newer ones don't even compare. They are all glitz and glamour with poor workmanship.

RE: Traveling around lake michigan

State Parks are closed in MI until June 22, however, all other campgrounds are opening the end of May unless the governor extends the stay at home again. I hope not as we are waiting for our seasonal site at a county park to open. Other than weekends or holiday times there are usually sites available. Michigan has a lot of campgrounds.

RE: Travel restrictions

The link for the states has not been updated since Apr 30. Looking at MI, the information is not up to date as there is currently a stay at home order in place thru May 28th.

RE: Anyone traveling yet

How many naysayers are willing to lose their loved ones? It probably not you that will get it, but someone close to you. For some, that is what it will take to understand. They can't even read history and understand. Their minds can't wrap around it as they have never been inconvenienced in their lives. It very sad.

RE: Fort Wilkins SP, MI

Announced opening date for MI State Parks is June 22nd if that helps with your plans.

RE: Anyone traveling yet

Many of us who are in campgrounds will follow guidelines and do it safely. The general public will not! That has been seen by photos from various state beaches and parks especially over this past weekend as places started to open, some have closed again becaue of it. They even shut down the parking areas to try and control the crowds. I saw how people responded to the lift of the stay at home this past week. They think the threat of the virus is over and that it's gone - one person even commented they are glad it's done. Won't even practice social distancing. A campground may be safer than your own neighborhood as most other campers don't infringe on your site. Waiting for our seasonal site at a county park in MI to open, hoping to leave TX in a couple of weeks. Not worried about travel, there's always some place to park for the night.

RE: Trapped?

Still in TX and we made the right decision. We are full-time and the campground we have a seasonal site in is not open in MI. Current expected date is May 18. We will wait to see what happens when the current order expires on May 15th, if they can indeed open on May 18, we'll then leave and head that way. In a small town, feel safe here and will be in a small town in MI too.
