  1. Perhaps RVPR can consider holding a contest to see which reviewer can post the best photo of a campground...Oh wait, that was previously suggested and not considered professional. Never mind.
  2. Isn't it great that we have the right to say "NO" and move on down the road! I do agree with remoandiris and that it's not up to RV Park Review to get involved at this point.
  3. Some posters mentioned other things they were interested in before making a selection on a place to live. This site we found is pretty good at giving a longer look at other things like taxes, healthcare, cost of living, etc. Just an idea. http://www.bestplaces.net/find/
  4. If you are certain that you aren't dealing with a slow leak consider switching to Nitrogen in your tires. We had all the stems replaced and then switched to Nitrogen and the problem of loss of pressure went away. Of course, many of the experts here will dispute that so all I can say is what worked for us.
  5. We've been a C2C member for over 15 years. Our home park is in TN. We've been there a few times but the cost savings for the rest of the country is what keeps us in it. We haven't run into any issues with restrictions or availability but have met some that have. Whatever you choose, try it and if not happy look at a re-sale. We can do that without a heavy, expensive entry fee. Don't know if those type of membership is still available but if they are, try it.
  6. It never fails to amaze me the number of roadblocks that folks can throw up to hamper an otherwise harmless activity. Everyone back to your corner or go stand with your tribe and let us try to begin again.
  7. To answer the question the OP asked. There is no difference between the dry and liquid chemicals. We've used both with no difference.
  8. I'm personally going to ban myself from reading any more posts here on this thread.
  9. You can get a letter from your insurance provider. I received one from Medicare and that helped me get the tag. It's a drop tag that hangs from the rearview mirror, but it still works. Hope that helps
  10. I'm not sure if the book we use is the same one mentioned previously but we use the Pocket Truck Stop Guide. It lists all Interstate and major US Highway stops. I followed it all the way up US 45 from Mobile, thru Mississippi and into Tennessee. No problems finding diesel along the way.
  11. Check your insurance as using a locking device might give you a break on the rate. We have a TT and use a lock on the coupler when we aren't towing and our insurance gives us a break on the rate. The lower rate paid for the lock the first year and the rest is gravy. If they try and damage the coupler the insurance covers 100% of the repair. One final thing to remember is that locks only keep honest people honest. If someone is bound and determined to steal your RV they will.
  12. I realize many people full-time for a variety of reasons but I'm surprised that you should ask this question. Don't you have any interests or curiosity about the area you want to visit? Did you plan on staying at the campground for the entire season? Okay, I'm speaking for my wife and I and the planning of things to do is a major part of why we go where we do. Part of it is seeing new things, doing the things we like to do and meet different people. If we experience a period of heat and humidity we try to work around it by doing something indoors or shorten our stay outdoors until the weather changes. If it doesn't we move on. Of course, that's us. If my understanding of your question is wrong please clarify it for me.
  13. Thanks for all of the information. We aren't leaving for another 3 months but it may take me that long to figure out all of the information provided and make a choice. Thanks to all.
  14. I need some expert suggestions. We will be looking at a mobile hotspot for a five-six month trip. The two we have looked at and are good for the area we will be in are A T & T Unite Explore or the Verizon Ellipsis Jet Pack. Either one requires the purchase of a data card that expires in 30 or 60 days. If anyone has some experience with either of those mobile hotspots and a data card or something completely different we'd appreciate the insight. It must be either A T & T or Verizon. Thanks.
  15. Hi and Welcome, I'm not an expert. However, I do have an opinion. Go with what you like, a floor plan that works for you. And, it fits your budget! Everything after that is just someone else's opinion. We have a Four Season TT but I wouldn't want to use it during the winter anywhere but in a warm weather climate. But that's us. You may be different. Find something you like, that fits your budget, and that you can easily tow. Then enjoy it.
  16. Somehow 13% doesn't sound like strong support to me.
  17. Here's a shocker. I apparently agree with everyone who has posted. Go figure.
  18. We used a 31' TT when we had a Border Collie and a Samoyed. There was plenty of room for the two of us and the two of them. We towed with a RAM 2500. Today we have a 27' TT and a different RAM 2500 for a Lab and a Beagle. The beagle thinks she is large and in charge because she came before the Lab. A shorter TT and still the four of us. They are both active but we always take them with us and let them romp away either in the off-leash area at the RV Park or at a local Dog Park. They enjoy the peace and quiet when we return, sleep the rest of the time while we head back out to do any pet-restricted activity we have planned. They both travel well and plop down when we clear the driveway. The only time they get up is when we stop for fuel and dog walks. Then when we head down the road again, they nap. Doesn't take a lot of room to keep them happy.
  19. Perhaps if you had said your second post instead of your first post you might have gotten the answers you were looking for. How about buying a cover? Of course, birds have been known to poop on vehicles while they are in motion, stopped at a stop sign, red light, or while you are in a parking lot without trees getting your pretzels and beer.
  20. Or you could be halfway human and leave the birds alone. Get a bucket of water and some soap and then some exercise.
  21. We found one on ebay a couple of years ago and found ours, the same one, at a bicycle shop. Used it for two years so far and its carried two adult bikes with no problem. We keep it firmly tied down and it prevents it from bouncing. Never had an issue. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Swagman-RV-2-Bike-Ladder-Rack/272819585548?_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIM.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D48739%26meid%3D6d606701e5fa4e60b3d145f48d20eb63%26pid%3D100011%26rk%3D6%26rkt%3D12%26sd%3D272810857666&_trksid=p2047675.c100011.m1850
  22. For years now I've seen campgrounds that only allow Motorhomes. There are a couple in Florida that comes to mind and others in other places we've traveled. If they are that snobby I wouldn't want to stay there but when you are looking for a one night stop without unhooking what's their issue? Most people don't get that nuanced on the difference between campground and RV park. In fact, I'll through in another, Resort. I'm not sure those terms hold much water anymore if they once did. We've seen places call themselves a resort and while good for a laugh they weren't. We've seen campgrounds offer tent camping sites but then we have also seen many RV parks offer the same amenities. Don't even get me started on those that offer WiFi and cable TV. Getting back to truck campers, the most restricted places we've run into will allow a TT or a 5er to be unhooked and stay for short and long periods, but those with truck campers were prohibited from "dropping" their camper off and play tourist with their truck. Go figure. It pays to ask ahead of making a reservation. Probably best to always make a reservation rather than get shut out.
  23. Winterize through the pump installed and open the valves until everything runs pink. To de-winterize, takes about 20 minutes, to open each valve and faucet until the water runs clear.
