RE: Army Corps Of Engineers Parks Are Closing?

The Nashville District Corps of Engineers posted today that they will immediately begin an orderly shutdown of those campgrounds that have already opened for the 2020 season and keep the others closed for the time being. One way to check on a particular Corps campground is to start from the Corps locations map on their headquarters website, click on the District you're interested, and either check the news stories or go to their recreation page and click on the COVID-19 banner at the top of the page. Glad to hear they're letting the volunteers stay.

RE: 2020 SE TC Gathering - planning stage

MIL has improved some but still in skilled nursing facility and likely to stay there. Between that and all the rain we've been getting I haven't been able to get out to Crossville yet. Time is getting short so I'm going to change plans and wait until fall to do a gathering. There are a lot of spring TC rallies in this area but I haven't seen any scheduled for the fall yet. The Corps campgrounds around Nashville are good. They tend to fill up fast though. If one of y'all want to set up a gathering this spring go right ahead. Pick a time and place and the TCers will show up! Including me if I can make it.

RE: 2020 SE TC Gathering - planning stage

Sorry for the delay folks but MIL had a stroke so we've been dealing with that the last few months. I've never been to Grayson Highlands but it's on my bucket list ... even if just to see the wild ponies. Trying to stay closer to home this time though due to MIL's health. Even then I can't say for sure we'll be able to attend so it might be a "self-service" gathering. I've talked to the folks at Spring Lake RV Resort in Crossville and so far so good. Should be able to make an announcement after the holidays.

RE: TR: The Road to winning a National Championship

What an awesome accomplishment! Too bad the weather turned bad on the way home but at least you had the exhilaration of the wins to keep your spirits up.

RE: 2020 SE TC Gathering - planning stage

I guess that means the campgrounds at Nashville/Opryland are out then at $100 a night :B Big Meadows campground looks nice but might be a bit small. Same for the loop at Cloudland Canyon with the pavilion. Not that I expect 20+ rigs to attend but need to allow for outsiders to take up some sites. I should be able to get by Spring Lake sometime in the next few weeks and find out if its a go or if I need to look elsewhere.

RE: Complete newbie needs help

You're already accumulating some truck camper stories ... ha! ha! The OSB board will work but its heavy and will suck up water. You might be able to build up the bottom of the camper as some have done on here. Another option is closed cell foam board like the blue foam sheet at Lowes. It has the advantage of being light and even adds insulation to the bottom. Put it under the rubber mat though to keep the camper from tearing it up if it does slide. I've used one under my 3000+ lb camper for years now.

RE: Complete newbie needs help

So that's it. Nice. It's a hard side, not a popup. The rear jack on this side looks like it has been cut off for some reason. That'll make it interesting to load and unload. Just saw the new photo. Congratulations on passing RV.NET Photo Posting 101! Yes, that looks like it. Look at the free end of the cord and see if it doesn't match up.

RE: Complete newbie needs help

There is an electrical cord coming out of my camper near the front. Is that what has to be connected to my truck? Does it have anything to do with the big outlet in my truck bed? The previous owner had a 5th wheel or gooseneck for farming. The cord you refer to is most likely the umbilical cord that connects the truck to the camper. If it is long enough you can run it to the back of the truck and plug it into the round 7 blade outlet there. If not, you'll either need to install an outlet at the front of the truck or get another cable you can use as an extension. This will provide power to any signal or running lights on the camper while you're driving. It will also allow the truck to charge the camper battery when you are underway. What you need to do to post your photos is use the "Reply to Topic" button which takes you to a screen with a box you can type your text into. Unlike the reply box at the bottom of the thread, this one also has a row of buttons at the top. At the point you want to insert your photo, click the "image" button, fifth one from the right which looks like a mountain in a box. A box will come up into which you paste the photo link. You can also set the size of the photo to make sure you stay within the limit allowed. Glad to have another lady hanging out on here :B If you make it as far as middle TN send me a PM.

RE: Complete newbie needs help

Let's see if this works to show your images: https://i.imgur.com/qRn4gvgl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/nyZZnEtl.png https://i.imgur.com/0PcHAFEl.jpg Ah, I see it worked. In the third photo, the black appliance in the lower left looks like the power converter and fuse panel. This device is what takes the power coming into the camper when it's plugged in and uses it to charge the battery and power the house style outlets in the camper (which won't work unless it's plugged in). The white device in the middle is either a propane dectector, a carbon monoxide detector, or a combination propane and carbon monoxide detector. Whatever you use to tie it down, get a rubber mat to put in the bed under the camper to help keep it from sliding around. Hopefully you don't have one of those plastic bed liners as they're slick and make it harder to get the camper to stay put. 67avion will do an excellent job of familiarizing you with the systems on your camper.

RE: 2020 SE TC Gathering - planning stage

Considering a place with a pavilion instead of a clubhouse would be OK if we can expect comfortable temperatures. That might require sliding the time to late April or May.

RE: 2020 SE TC Gathering - planning stage

So good to hear from everyone and your ideas on a location. Unlike billyg, I will still be working next spring so I'm inclined to pick a place within a half day drive from Nashville. I've found a campground near Crossville TN that might work, Spring Lake RV Resort. It looks like a nice place, has good facilities including two club houses, and their rates and cancelation policy are reasonable. I'll try to get by there to check it out and talk with the owner. Yoly, I hope it'll work out that you can make it wherever we end up!

D1trout, that is one super fine rebuild! The transformation is amazing and the final product sure has a "Wow!" factor.

RE: Solar Panel Door Awning

A creative solution that solves two problems at once. I like it!

RE: 2020 SE TC Gathering - planning stage

If it's not too large of a group, this is a picturesque campground that we found above average. It had been purchased and renovated about 2 years ago with the new owners replacing all the inground plumbing and electrical (all new pedestal boxes). And if you need to be connected, the fiber-optic wireless download speeds will amaze you ! Mountain View Campground This is a conventional RV park but the setting and surroundings make it feel like a National Forest. Kayaking and waterfalls nearby. We've been at the Smokies three times already. Not to say we couldn't go back but want to look around some before deciding. Thanks for the info though and will keep it on the list of possibilities.

RE: 2020 SE TC Gathering - planning stage

sorry got you confused with the old southern comfort get together No problem. Figured that was the case. I don't remember a southern comfort rally. I do remember donlu held a some SE TC rallies down at Cedar Key FL. I PM'd with him when I was planning one of my gatherings and he said he wouldn't be able to do another for some time, if ever, and to go ahead and use the SE TC monicker.

2020 SE TC Gathering - planning stage

Starting to think about a fourth semi-annual Southeast Truck Camper Gathering. Sometime in the spring. No idea where in the southeast yet.

RE: Trip Report -- WA to Northern BC and Back

Very nice trip report. Such beautiful scenery in that part of the continent. Thanks for taking the time to put this together.

RE: Members welcoming fellow members

Thought I'd give this thread a bump and thank ajriding for his good info. It's nice to hear from someone who's used Boondockers Welcome.
