RE: Savannah, GA or lower SC along I-95

Santee Coper State Park is right at I-95 and I-26 in SC. It is nice and quiet.

RE: First goof up, I have to share

When we were pop up camping years ago, we headed to the beach. We got there, and neither of us had the key to unlock the pop up drop down door or the lock from the hitch. They were at home on the counter! We had to drill the fold down door/step lock out, and we just removed the entire pin from the truck leaving the ball attached to the camper. And one pop up trip years ago, my mom and aunt decided their purses were safer locked in the van than the pop up. They both had a van key, just incase one got lost... or locked in the car or something. That was a great idea until neither one took the van key out of their purse before they locked the door!

RE: Walmart overnight and running the generator

I am 99% sure that you will not be the only one running the generator at night in Florida...

RE: Selecting a roof coating brand

I just used Heng's in the organge can on my 95 Pace Arrow motorhome. It looks like it is holding up well a month later after applying two coats. I am thinking of ordering one more gallon and apply a third coat.

RE: Air Conditioning how many do not use it.

We are in hot and humid SC. We run ours if it is over 72* inside or humid, which is pretty much April-November, and in between if needed at other times...

RE: Reservations for WRONG dates...

Yup, did it once when reserving 4 sites for a group. Thankfully my wife noticed when she went to email the reservation info to the rest of the group. Moral of the story, I'm not allowed to reserve sites anymore!!! I received email confirmation for both sites, but I didn't even open them. I just through them in my reservation folder a few months ago. I will check now. I am thankful that they at least called and worked with me.

RE: Reservations for WRONG dates...

Was that "another senior moment" - On your part; or theirs ? Guy I have year before I’m a senior, but that doesn’t meant I’m losing it. I’m about 95% sure I told her the right dates in the phone. Their online reservation system has been down during their renovations. They want people to call and book so they can make sure people are aware of everything going on construction wise. We can still see the avability online though. I kept telling her I was site number 21 and she said it’s booked and I wondered why it showed available. I just assumed it was due to the construction. But it was due to it being a different week. We typically go here after work on Wednesday or Thursday for a weekend get away 24 minutes from home. We would have been disappointed next weekend had we went and not had a reservation and they been booked.

RE: Reservations for WRONG dates...

It happened many times when we owned our park. Be careful of your date entries, so asnot to confuse months. spell out the month, do not use its numerical 6 (june) 7 ( july ) can easily be confused with the dates. Other nations list day before month Thankfully you had a park ranger on top of it. I called and made this one over the phone. But I’m Glad they worked with us.

Reservations for WRONG dates...

Has anyone else ever made their reservations for the wrong dates? We booked our local county park for next weekend... or so I though about a month ago. About 8:30 tonight, my phone rang and I answered it. It was a pro ranger from our local park wanting to know if we were going to make it to either of the two spots that we booked tonight. That is not what we wanted to hear at 8:30 on Thursday. I am not 100% sure if this was my screw up or theirs, but luckily they were understanding and had two spots side by side for next weekend and changed our reservations for no fee.

RE: Supplemental AC

Put reflective materials in the windows, or use room darkening curtains. Add insulating pillows to the roof vents.

RE: Myrtle Beach Problems

Just an FYI, last week was supposed to be the "offical" Atlantic Fest Bike Week (opposite of Harley). Things like this do tend to happen more during this week...

RE: tax writeoffs for full timers who work from road

1) I would speak to a CPA or a trusted tax preparer. I work for a CPA firm, but not a CPA yet. It is scary at what people do that use Turbotax or other self prepared softwares. Just because you think that you can do it, or you think the answer to the question is yes doesn't mean that it is correct.

RE: How to secure storage area while connected to water?

Continuous city water hookup is dangerous IMO. Something pops when your gone and what a mess. Fill your FW tank and use the pump. What do you do at your home? No difference of a busted water lines in the camper or the house.

RE: C'mon back, honey; Give it some gas!

RE: Nascar Follies

I just hope Labor Day weekend at Darlington stays put now! That is our NASCAR camping weekend. We don't even go to the race. We just go for the environment.

RE: Daunting it's not...rooftop AC replacement

Yep. We replace both of our on our class A our self. $1,100 for both units. Repair shop wanted $4,100 Materials and Labor to replace them. We managed to get them on the roof standing on the side of the service truck and lifting to two people on the RV roof.

RE: Myrtle Beach - Ocean Lakes, Pirateland or Lakewood

I say defiantly no to Piratelane. We love Lakewood. It is about 75% campsites 25% permanent villas condos. You cannot bring your own golf cart to Lakewood, unless you store your camper there of have a permanent site, which means there are WAY less golf carts. You can rent a golf cart, and the kids can enjoy the golf cart cruises still. Ocean Lakes is very nice, but it is WAY to crowded for us in the summer, and you cannot move for the golf carts! We have a golf cart, but would rather rent one at Lakewood than deal with the interstate traffic of Golf Carts from Ocean Lakes Lakewood sites are a little more roomier and you have more shade option than OL. With that being said, we will stay at OL during the off season, but not prime time.

RE: Second AC worth it?

If it is already set up, you can get onw for probably $600-$700 and drop it in yourself. We replaced both of ours our self, with no a/c experience what so ever!
