RE: Holly Bluff Campground Asheboro NC

Zooland in Asheboro is good for an overnight.

RE: Winter Camping - Golf Cart

Thanks for all the good advice... As far as the battery tender.. a golf cart has 6 batteries so I’d need 6 tenders..... not convenient. I’m pretty adept at the winter camping otherwise... just never has a golf cart... sounds like I should be good since it would be used/charged approx 2x /mo at least! You're probably referencing my post. Tender is not what I was referring to. Maybe I should have said float. My charger can stay plugged in 24/7 as it floats once the batteries are fully charged. After about 28 days it kicks on automatically and brings them up to charge. My last charger did not work this way. My old one you would have to unplug once they were charged and then plug in after 20 days as it did not have the float capability. Get a good battery charger that has float and no need for extra tenders etc.

RE: Winter Camping - Golf Cart

Is your charger a battery maintainer as well. My current charger will fully charge and after about 28 days will automatically click on and bring the batteries up to full charge. I leave my cart plugged in 24/7 when not using it for the few weeks I use it at the beach in the summer. If your charger is like this leave your switch in run not tow. If you leave it in tow it will not charge 100%.

RE: 50 Amp Surge Guard Issue?

OP here. So we were camped this past weekend at a FHU Site with 50 amp. I plugged in my 50 amp Surge Guard to see if it still I had issue with my main AC. After getting power on, flipped on the main 15k BTU AC and started and ran fine. Turned on the 13.5 BTU AC and started and ran fine. Now, it was not hot so I did not need to run both AC's but I did not experience any electrical issues all weekend. So, what could have been the problem over Labor Day where, even after the CG replaced the 50 amp breaker I still could not run my 15k BTU AC unless I unplugged the surge protector and plugged my cord directly into their pedestal? Could that CG have another issue that my surge guard was protecting me from. I did not have any problems that weekend even though I was plugged in direct with no surge guard. tks

RE: Back hurting from bed in travel trailer - need advice please

I got a Lucid 10" memory foam gel short queen in May. Very Firm but I don't have any back or shoulder pain. I didn't think I would like it but it is great. Around $240 on Amazon.

RE: 50 Amp Surge Guard Issue?

I assumed one leg was not working as well. I'll upgrade to a PI EMS PT-50x. Is that the recommended portable unit.

RE: 50 Amp Surge Guard Issue?

What brand do you have? Bought it at Camping World. Had it about 5 years now. I think it says Surge Guard. It is not a Progressive Industries

50 Amp Surge Guard Issue?

I plugged my 50 amp surge guard into the power pedestal and when the time delay was up all was good BUT the 15k AC would not turn on but the 13.5 AC in the bedroom would. I unplugged the surge guard and plugged directly into the power pedestal and both AC's worked fine. I had maintenance come out and they replaced the 50 amp breaker but the surge guard still would not run the 15k AC. I reluctantly plugged into the pedestal direct and all was fine for our trip. Can't rationalize why the surge protector would not allow 1 AC to turn on. Is it likely shot? Did not have any surges on prior 2 week trip. tks

RE: Pilgrim Lite Spongy Floor

You can add additional braces for the floor for more support. From top or bottom? If I open my access panel on my underbelly the floor is solid as a rock everywhere I can feel. This may not be the bottom layer of the luan but not sure how I would even access the luan/foam/luan if there is a layer of wood below this.You have to go in from the bottom to add more floor joists. This would probably involve dropping the holding tanks to access. This is a major job and if your not sure it might be worth calling a RV Mobil tech. Which is why I probably won't bother. Once I open up the slide for the fridge and stove I throw a 5' long throw rug on the linoleum which keeps us from feeling the softness in the floor.

RE: Pilgrim Lite Spongy Floor

Was it spongy (soft) or bouncy (lack of floor joists)? Probably bouncy and what you thought was soft was really lack of floor joists which unfortunately is how they make light weight trailers! Both. If you see the floor joists under the camper and then go inside the area in question it in between 2 joists that are about 4' apart. I noticed it about 2-3 years ago and the area has expanded the entire length between the floor joists. It is in front of the fridge and stove up to the kitchen island(so about 4' long by 2 1/2' wide). If I feel under the cabinets in the kitchen island it is solid as a rock. Island has a sink. Opposite side of island have 2 small areas that are soft/spongy and each area are on the edges by the joists but does not expand the 4' x 2 1/2' like in front of the island. Just 2 small areas. One is by the floor duct as well.

RE: Pilgrim Lite Spongy Floor

My 2014 Keystone Outback has a spongy floor in front of the regrigerator and stove. Believe it is also due to the foam and luan and how it is attached to the floor joists. This area is where my fridge and stove are in a slide so I can almost guarantee that that weight going in and out all the time broke the floor down. No signs of water leaks. Seems to be a thing I guess. I have a '17 Laredo with the same spongy floor in front of the stove and refrigerators. They are in a slide also. No sign of leaks and I check it all the time. Glad to hear yours is the same but not glad you have a problem as well. It really urks me though as I keep the camper pristine. When I eventually sell this camper it will be an issue to explain that it IS NOT water damage and it will probably take the right buyer to trust. I would love to have it fixed but can not do myself(skills) and I am sure it would be cost prohibitive. Have you given any thought to how to fix? This is our 7th year using the camper and I know Keystone won't give me the time or day and I have not even tried.

RE: Awning question?

If you want a no-scrubbing option, get Tilex Mold and Mildew. Spray it on the awning. Roll it up while it's still wet. Wait twenty minutes. Open the awning. Hose it off. You're done. ^This but I just spray in on (wearing sunglasses) wait a few minutes, use a damp mop and wipe it off. Why bother with all the mixing of dawn and vinegar and bleach when they sell the stuff for dirt cheap at the store.
