RE: Financing RV Lot

We plan to rent out lot much of the year. You will not have anyone wanting to rent that lot "much of the year." In Florida, the season is the Winter months. The rest of the time, your lot, and hundreds of thousands of lots just like yours, are empty. The season begins after Thanksgiving and after New Year's it is full occupancy. The exodus begins in March and by the end of April, the snowbirds have left. The RV lots all go unoccupied until the migration starts again next Thanksgiving. Not true in the Florida Keys where our lot is. The first year we had it, it rented out almost every weekend in the summer and for weeks during holidays. It was booked solid from September right through May and into June Guy

RE: Florida Keys

First there was the "slide method". Then there was the "group work together method" and finally five years ago we bought a fantastic site in Key Largo Kampground and have been happy campers ever since. I feel for anyone still spending many wasted hours and days with many browsers open and your finger bouncing from one to the next as the US official clock ticks 7:59:59 Guy

RE: Bahia Honda State Park, FL and Verizon jet pack

We are at Key Largo and use our Verizon Jet pack perfectly. For many years we did two week stays a Bahia Honda during the winter months and it worked for us there also, but since buying our lot in Key largo we haven't been there in five years. I assume it would still work there. Guy

RE: When buying a new TT how do you negotiate

I bought four different new trailers over the past twenty years. First I knew the particular make and floor plan I wanted Second I knew the price that I wanted to pay for each before I ever walked into the dealer Third, I let them play their games and if I didn't get it at my price I walked Fourth, I got all four of them at what my price was On one of them, I was getting back into my car when the salesman came running out and said they had agreed to my price If you don't get 30 % off their starting price, just walk !

RE: Electronic Device Addiction

I'm not arguing that screen addiction may be--probably is--a legitimate problem. However, I'm always reluctant to judge anyone based on a brief encounter. For all I know that family had spent hours and hours together and the boy needed a break from interaction. Perhaps he's on the autism spectrum or has some other special need. We just don't know when we're judging strangers. My husband, our 21 yo son and I were at a restaurant Sunday night, and after ordering we each got our phones out and tuned out for a few minutes. It did cross my mind to wonder if we were being judged by the other diners, but I certainly didn't care. We'd been working around the house together all afternoon, totally engaged with and interacting with each other. We all needed a brief break. Yes, you would have been judged by others; me included!

LED question

RE: Travel Trailer Newb question RE: WDH

I towed a 19 foot trailer for six year with one and then I towed a 25 footer for six more years with one, and I would never tow without one unless it was a small pop up. With out one, every time a 18 wheeler comes flying by you, you'll wish you had one. Guy

RE: RV lot OWNERSHIP - deeded lot ownership, live year round

We own our on lot in Key Largo and our park is a "condominium Park" We winter here and summer in our home in the NC mountains. Our park is so nice it is next to impossible to get a place for sale here. We lucked out five years ago and even though we have no intentions of selling, our lots value has tripled in value. One thing to check on is the taxes. Where we are we just pay county property taxes on the land if the trailer stays on wheels and can be moved Like others have said, check all the rules, regulations and monthly maintenance fee and if your place is a desirable place, go for it Can we ask the Name of your park and where it is in Key Largo...if you don't mind giving out this info..Chuck Guy It is "Key Largo Kampground and Marina" About a mile passed John Pennekamp state park, behind the Publix shopping center. Check it out on line and take a look at the video. We have two beaches, access to the Atlantic and our water playground is the Largo south sound mangrove gardens as well as the Pennekamp canoe trails. Guy

RE: Everglades and Big Cypress camping in Feb. - availability?

I just looked at Midway ( Big Cypress) in recreation.gov and see that pretty much all the tent sites are available for all of Feb. And for good reason. Just think about staying in a tent next to 26 Octogenarians in RV's, who move to a different site every 10 days skirting around the max stay policy. Sounds to me like your jealous! Guy

RE: Everglades and Big Cypress camping in Feb. - availability?

In the southern portion of the Everglades, I don't think you would have any problem getting a site in the Long Pine Key National Park campground. There are no hooks up and a few water posts here and there. there are rest rooms, but no showers. It is a wonderful place You could also try the Flamingo National Park campground which does take reservations and has some spots with electrical hookups. Also in Flamingo there are some new "ECO tent type structures" and when we past by them last week, they looked empty. You can probably get info on line or from the ranger station about their availability If you are a paddler, let me know and I'll give you some good places to paddle there Guy

RE: 1st RV Road Trip - Florida itinerary

You say "see the springs at Juniper Springs", but you are going to paddle at Alexander Springs. I strongly advise if you only have time to paddle one or the other; make sure it is Juniper Springs. They both are beautiful spring runs, but Juniper is the best Guy

RE: Fuse box

Go outside and see where your feed cord comes in and the panel should be fairly close to there. Guy

RE: 6 gal electric hot water heater upgrade

I would do it in a heart beat. We have a 40 foot two year old trailer with a Suburban gas/electric water heater, and as soon as it quits I'll replace it with a 6 gallon residential all electric one like I have at home. I figured I would maintain this in accordance with the book, and the first year I pulled out the anode to check it and it was still good. When I put it back in no matter how tight I snugged it, it leaked. I finally gave up and put a cheater bar on it and figure I would just leave it until it wears out and then replace it with something that is not junk. My electric one at home is 30 years old and has no anode. I have another one in a guest house that is 20 years old with no anode. On my last two trailer they were gas/electric with no anode and each of those were just drained once a year and I never had a problem like with this present piece of junk Guy
