RE: Nicest?? CG in or near Bar Harbor

FTG, We stayed at (Tall or Twin Pines) which is about 16 miles from BH and just south off Ellsworth. Yes lots of seasonals, BUT also lots of sites for non seasonal . IMO, much better than the 2 KOA's we drove thru. Big rig friendly. If we went back, that's where we'd stay again. AC Thanks, I didn't see that one,I saw the 2 KOA's and Timberland Acres.. I will check that one out You are indeed correct, it was Timbeland Acres we stayed at. Dang CRS at 4am! LOL I hear ya.... :).. especially after a week at the beach ! my b&tt is dragging today

RE: Adding 2nd a/c with in-command system

Correct, a "Gateway " and a " Controller" are needed from what the folks at ASA Electronics ( they make it ) .. You then reconfigure the "Floorplan" in the incommand settings

RE: Honda 2200i or Honda 2200i Companion?

Why would you not get the 2200 Companion first? That way you can plug in to your 30amp plug from generator to trailer. without 30 to 20 dog bone. C.B. X2 for sure !

RE: Adding external LED's and awning LED's

If you want to add the LED on your awning roller, it will be very hard if your NOT wired for them already ....I am sure there are some on here that may have figured a way to RIG the wiring to work.. I added a strip under the frame of my last fiver and it worked great ! This is exactly my concern. How the awning rolls up without destroying wiring. Anyone know how they do it from factory? I really dont mind the way I have it with the lights on the side of the camper with regards to lighting the site, but I would say 10-20 bugs fly in every time the door opens. And with 3 kids the total bug count in the camper on a summer evening becomes something like 9 figures ;-) For those that said you added them under your camper, did you just use the sticky tape they came with or some other way to fasten them? I'd hate for them to come off while traveling and tangle in the wheels. Thanks! My lights are recessed in a track in the awning.. the wires drop into a 1/4" sized hole in the roller tube, then travel up the inside of the awning rail.. At the top of the rail, they enter into a hole in the side of the camper..

RE: Dish TV Pay-As-You-Go RV Plan

The packages are 30 days. I have been using the plan for several years now with good luck.. What is nice is that there are NO activation fee's . Pay the bill , turn on the system,. scan, watch, repeat if needed.. I pay my last bill in September and do not pay again till the following April with no penalties...

RE: Ran over Gator

Are they 'retreads' (existing tire regrooved) or 'recaps' (layer of rubber bonded onto old tire without remaining tread)? They ( Gators ) would be Re Caps....

RE: Water pressure gauge

I have my Watts 263 adjustable set to 55.. not a problem.. Like stated.. the lines can handle much more, it's the connections that will fail.

RE: Honda 2200i or Honda 2200i Companion?

If you want a red Honda, i would do the companion... At least you will have the ability to plug the camper directly into the 30amp port.. If you get the regular, there is no 30amp RV port on it and you will have to use adapters...

RE: fore and aft movement

My truck came with a Curt hitch when i bought it. I used it for the first season. I bitched about it every time i hooked up. It was a white knuckle drive to the camground every time. Finally I pulled that pile of **** out half way through tthe second season and bought a B&W Patriot. Never looked back and I am actually not worn out after driving 2 miles Another happy member of the B&W Club. I'm still waiting for my membership package, and honorary hat that the president ships....???? Ron ??? :B

RE: I-95 checkpoint entering Florida???

I'll be traveling from South Carolina to Florida next weekend. Is there a checkpoint along I-95 entering Florida? If so, does it back up traffic and slow you down a lot? Thanks. My buddy went down to FL from PA last week and said ALL traffic was forced to enter the rest area ( which is closed) .. They were checking for license plates from certain states... His MH is registered in FL and had no issues entering..

RE: The more I learn, the more I realize what I don't know

Thanks for all the feedback. For what it's worth I will probably end up with an F250 or 350 (depending on the deal I find) and anything I have looked at so far can be towed by either of these. I won't be buying a FW that requires a dually. I don't need that much truck or that much RV. Weights and calculations are definitely considerations when I am putting the pair together and I don't plan on a combo where they are short. As far as backing/etc, I would agree, just like anything else, practice will get me where I want to be. There is something to be said for the ease of a MH in setting up camp especially in the rain, but I need a new truck and frankly don't want another MH and another engine to take care of either. Never really looked at FW's until a few weeks ago. The amount of floor space and configurations is pretty dramatic even over a higher end MH's. I work remote, so more real estate is definitely a plus. We plan on touring the US next year for several months, shorter travel days, longer stays, so part timing seems more palatable in a FW, at least in my budget. Since your looking at BOTH 3/4 and 1 tons.The cost difference in minimal, go with the 1 ton SRW. IF your looking at the 2020's you will have a far greater capable tow vehicle then even 3 years ago.. From payload, to torque, HP, ect.. .. Still limited to tire and rear axle capacities, but you can TOW a nice a size fiver with these newer trucks...SRW's that is... As far as backing up.. its really not that hard, its just different.. a few practices and uses and you'll be a pro..

RE: Okay How many RV'ers here use CB-Radio's?

when I drove big trucks, I had a cobra that I had turned up and my 2 antenna were matched on the rig... when I started RV'ing I used 1 for a few years, then tossed it due to the lack of useful info, and nasty folks jabbering all the time... it just got old and the squelch couldnt take it all out. it's probably been 25 years since I used mine ???

RE: Slide Topper Awnings Will Not Fit

I can say that I am not aware of that trailer, but found it on a Google search... The search showed several with a slide topper... The topper looks to be almost level when out, which is not good, but it fits..

RE: shackle replace

Buc1980, Have Mor/Ryde IS on out 5er and towed for the past 7 years. Great ride. The IS was from the NuWa factory. The IS system is not cheap, but well worth the money, especially if you tow a lot. Ken This is the 3rd RV I have had the IS put on, DW and I have said that we will not own an RV without it.... All that said, I am not so sure I would be that fast to install that onto an RV that is 18+ years old, which the OP's is at least 18 years old..
