RE: Clingmans Dome and Cades Cove Smoky Mountains

That is a good choice. It is on the trolley route so just hop on that to go into town. It's cheap enough and supposed to run every 15 minutes but I can't attest to that. Look it up on line to see if it will serve your needs. I also looked on the map and found a Jeep rental place not far from where you will be staying. Can't hurt to call and see what they charge.

RE: Clingmans Dome and Cades Cove Smoky Mountains

Where have you picked to camp? There are places that rent the 3 wheeled Slingshots to tool around in that look like a ton of fun. Park the rig at the campground and rent a jeep or other smaller vehicle to see the park. Even if you do take the C it is doable. Going east to west from Sugarlands visitor center is easier than west to east because the rock overhangs are mostly on that south side of the road where the westbound lane is closest to the river.

RE: Angry wannabe RV police encounter

It's interesting that those who oppose firearms think the ones responding that they carry are waving their firearm at every vehicle that passes them. I didn't read any such response. They did say that they will defend themselves against an aggressor, a road rager. A person who thinks they have a right to confront another driver because they don't like how they are driving is unquestionably in the wrong and we all have a right to defend ourselves against an aggressor. There are no statistics on crimes that never happen because a firearm was at hand to change someone's mind and actions.

RE: Northern Michigan advice

Walleye fishing. Not really much in the Cheboygan area except peace and quiet and fishing. A day trip to Mackinac Island and Mackinaw city is easily doable. Other than that just enjoy the R&R. If you happen to catch any Walleye don't forget to cut the cheeks out to cook up too. The round spot just under the eye that looks like another eye is the cheek and they are like a scallop.

RE: NJ to Grand Canyon via Mt Rushmore

When we did our big circle tour we did not make reservations except for destinations where we stayed more than 3 days. We started our tour the beginning of September though, not the high season where campground pressure might be higher. We stayed fairly close to the I-90 corridor and I found there to be many choices along our route. Get the RVPARKY app, it's gps enabled to pin point where you are and shows all the campgrounds near by. We start looking around 3pm and call a prospective CG to check availability. We got off the road by 4pm. It worked well for us. Some CG's were not high end by any means but we never felt unsafe and were always accommodated. Sometimes the Walmart parking lot will do to get you off the road and get some sleep but I do not like doing that.

RE: Dump valve won't close all the way

Pick up an add on valve. It will attach just like the hose and you will not need to take a shower after taking off the cap. Just use gloves and a bucket to catch the black water that has seeped past, attach the temporary valve and go. Its a temporary fix until you can repair the one that is supposed to work. Any camping supply store should have one.
