RE: Hard baseball sized "bump" outside RV

You are lucky to be in Florida. Florida has some of the best consumer vehicle laws. I think the seller/manufacture gets 3 chances for repair and then must buy back. Richard The lemon law in Florida does not apply to the "house", it's only applicable to the chassis components and a few other things such as windshield and driver and passenger windows. Pretty much everything else like delamination, AC leaks, electric issues, furnace,refrig, etc. are not covered. The OP's issues would fall into that category.

RE: Stabil or Seafoam for long term gas can storage?

I use both stabil and seafoam-- sort of depends what I have on hand. I also use non-ethanol gas for my boats and other small engine toys. If I know I'm not going to use something for for a few months, I fill it with 100LL ( airplane fuel) I get at the local airport. I've had that stuff in one of my boats for several years and it fired right up.

RE: Charging electric car

There are exactly ZERO EVs rated to be towed 4 down. And nobody ever tows a vehicle that is not "rated" to tow? And unlike ICE vehicles where the transmission probably does not lubricate when driven from wheels, nobody has pointed out a mechanical reason a EV can not be towed. So I sent an email to Tesla to ask about their new pickup truck and if it will be towable 4 down behind our motorhome. First response from them was , what do you mean by towable 4 down ? Next email I explained how I tow my F150 behind our motorhome and wanted to know if the new cybertruck will support that. Their response was that none of there current vehicles could be towed 4 down as it would burn out the motor(s) , but they didn't have any information on the capability of the new truck. I responded that how could they be taking orders on a new vehicle when they don't even have specifications on that its' capabilities are. I imagine it will be the same-- no 4 down towing.

RE: Anyone gone on a Cruise?

We have been on many,many cruises across most cruise lines. For the past several years, we go exclusively on Celebrity as the food,service and atmosphere is, in our eyes, superior to the others.

RE: New RV TV show 11/17/19

Just finished watching it. Lots of commercials and very little of substance. I might give it one more try, but so far not very impressed. I agree-- I won't be wasting another 30 minutes of my time on that in the future.

RE: I-4 though Orlando

I-4 listed as the most busiest and dangerous roadway in America. I will drive US301 or US 17 when we have to go toward Interstate 4/Orlando area. This is colloquially known as the “Haunted Highway” to Floridians, which is both the coolest and most unfortunate name ever. I-4 is the busiest interstate in the entire country and also named as the most dangerous, based on fatalities per mile. The story goes that this interstate is haunted by a cluster of pioneering graves buried underneath a stretch of highway. The ghosts of a Yellow Fever epidemic allegedly cause radio and cellphone interference, as well as a number of car accidents.However, it’s far more likely caused by the increase in those killed by distracted driving. (Florida is the number-one state for distracted driving, and police can’t pull over drivers for this secondary offense unless they are committing a more serious crime.) The "ban" on texting while driving was made a primary offense on July 1, 2019. BUT, Florida law enforcement agencies decided they know better than the legislature and governor and decided not to enforce the law until January 2020 to give people a chance to understand the law. In the meantime, how many accidents and perhaps deadly injuries will and have occurred due to this bone headed move? Here's a summary of the law changes: Section 316.305, Florida Statutes, went into effect on July 1, 2019. Motorists can be stopped and cited for texting and driving. The second part of the law, section 316.306, Florida Statutes, went into effect on October 1, 2019, in which a motorist can be pulled over and issued a warning for using wireless communications devices in a handheld manner in school and work zones. Starting January 1, 2020, motorists can be issued a citation for not using a device in a hands-free manner in school and work zones. Back to the I-4 question--- I will take any road to get across the state except I-4. To congested,too many accidents and just plain crazy.

RE: Large dog

I have a 85# dog, that is on the so called banned list. (More lunacy) Anyway he is no harder to deal with than a small dog. As long as you train the dog it is not an issue. Large or small they both require care, exercise and training. Unfortunately, the banned list is being mandated by liability insurance carriers. We had a rental complex and over the years, the insurance carriers started to require that certain sizes/breeds not be allowed. In today's litigious society you need to have insurance, and in order to have the insurance you have to restrictions, that's the way it works.

RE: Unfair Reservation System?

Florida state parks and Recreation.Gov have the same policies for everyone. It's a serious PITA but if you don't book very early you can forget it. One county park near St Petersburg FL gives preference to their residents and it is one of the most beautiful GCs in the country. They don't like dogs either, oh the shame of it. (we travel with one) I think you are referring to Ft DeSoto - Yes, residents get preference, as it should be... same with Sarasota County. Ft. DeSoto does indeed like dogs-- there is a camp loop specifically for campers traveling with dogs(79 sites) . There is a 2.5 acre fenced in/off leash dog play area as well as a dedicated beach for dogs !

RE: Lake George to Kennebunkport ME

Looking for suggestions on a Route to travel with our 5th wheel from Lake George NY to Maine. Has anyone been to the Lobster Festival in Rockland, ME? Looking for input. Last year we went from Lk George to Acadia, took Rt 4 out of Lk George, over to I-89, to I-93 to I-95 . We are about 65ft long and had no issues. Regarding the Lobster Fest, w stopped there 3-4 years ago and was not really impressed. Spent about an hours there and left.

RE: Water line burst

1. Get a quality regulator and always use it. 2. Always turn water off when you leave the campsite. Agree on both counts.... I have also turned off a few water faucets in CG's where the RV owners had left and something gave way inside and water was pouring out onto the ground.

RE: Seeking FHU site near Florida Springs for class A

Salt springs has hookups, You can scuba dive in Alexander springs or Juniper springs which is near by, easily ride with a tow car. I have only dived and camped in Alexander and Juniper springs but don't see why diving would not be allowed in Salt springs. Ginnie springs, devils den and Blue springs all allow scuba diving. There just don't want you to go into the cave system unless you have that certification. The pool at Salt Springs is pretty small and shallow, so just swimming and/or snorkeling work fine.

RE: Frameless windows question

Last spring I helped a guy at the campground fit up a piece of plywood to temporarily replace a swing out panel on one of his frameless windows that dropped to the ground in the middle of the night.

RE: Hey Smokers! (meat, that is)

I keep my smokers at home but I carry along an A-maze-n smoking tube and a bag of pellets. Takes up almost no room and insignificant weight. I have a Aussie electric grill that we carry along ( we are an all electric coach) and pop the smoke tube in the grill and close the top.

RE: Camping near Moab, Utah

We stayed at Portal RV park. There are 2 sections/sides. A regular side and a resort side. We chose the resort side. Had a great pool and jacuzzi. Sites were paved and well kept with very nice landscaping.

RE: Campground Maximum Length

If it's a park we haven't been at or a area of the park we haven't been in, I look on Google Earth. There is a ruler icon on the top of the page and you can measure the site. I've found it to be very accurate
