RE: Washing RV while traveling

Some campgrounds will allow washing for an extra water use fee. Just ask. We had a bad case of mkildew from being parked under trees for a month. I paid an extra water fee, and the campground handyman washed it for us. Another time, there were several college kids working in the park, and They were glad to get some extra spending money for doing the job.

RE: Comprehensive mobile app for campsites/grounds/rules

Have done many Cracker Barrels in many states, and have stayed overnight in several. Have always enjoyed their food, and the prices are not out of line. However, the one in Jackson, Tennessee which is close to us, has suffered some during the crunch times. Visited there for lunch several days ago, and the food quality was definately DOWN. We will watch and see, hopefully it was just a bad day.

RE: Coachmen Leprechaun fresh water tank

Happened to us one time when the toilet valve did not close completely, letting fresh water into the toilet, until the bowl filled, then via overflow into the black tank. Might watch for that.

RE: Cracker Barrel

We have been to many CBs all over this country, includeing the original one in Lebanon, TN. Have stayed overnight at several. Like everyone has said, they are all individual, parking will vary. With our 30' Class A with toad, it is always a matter of look and see. Some you can, others you can't. If staying overnight, I usually ask the manager on duty about the best parking. One night, with one that had a bigger parking area, we had three RVs and tow trucks all staying the night. We all visited at breakfast in the morning.

RE: House Batteries

Have had the same thing several times. In your and most rigs, there is enough draw on the batteries to run them down in a couple of days. CO detector, maybe a light left on, whatever... It will happen. If you have a battery disconnnect, use that when leaving it for any period without power on.

RE: Keeping water out of revoltuon mh engine air intake

Ford v10s had the same type problem, with rain coming in the front and sucking up into the air cleaner. They made a replacement air intake for a while, but that is not available any more. My local mechanic used a plastic bottle to make a shield to go in front of the air intake, diverted the rainwater, and solved the problem. fastened in place with tiewraps.

RE: Biggish dog in pick up truck?

Generally big dogs travel better in crates, as they do not have to fight to retain their balance in a moving vehicle. As they do not have hands to grip with, motions, expecially quick or hard stops, can cause them to fall or have to scrabble to keep their balance. In our motor home, our two, (50 and 80 pounds) wantyed their crates back on the back bed, usually with the doors open, where they could lay down, curl up, and be safe. They liked the security of the smaller space.

RE: Washington, DC Museums Slowly Re-Opening

We have visited all three museums several times, and see something different or more each time. Plan at least two days for the facility out a Dulles, one day for a walk around, one day to examine more closely. And if you are travelling, make a point of the big Air Force museum at Dulles, again, plan at least two days. And, if you can make it, the Naval Aviation Museum at Pensacola is another must do. Although not as big as the other two, it presents another side of aviation not seen at the other two. And if you are at the right times, you can also get to see the Blue Angels in practice.

RE: Toad damage from road debris.

We have the brush type guard at the rear of the coach, plus smaller mud guards behind each rear wheel. Yes we do have some small marks on the toad, but the brush type guard seems to deflect most, so damage is limited.

RE: flat towing a toad

If you can find a 2011 HHR, it is an ideal toad. light, easy to connect and disconnect, fun to drive. But for some stupid reason, they quit making them.

RE: Anyone use Quick connect for water hose?

I have QDs on everything. Just easier to hook up and then break down later. Fresh water hose, connect the ends when stored to keep critters out. I also have a water filter that is used occasionally, QDs make it easier to connect however we need at the time. But use the brass ones with o-rings. I carry a couble of spare sets, the ends occasionally get damaged and are hard to use.

RE: Lesson learned lol

I don't know any better, and someone will probably tell me its wrong, and why I should not do it, but after winter, when getting started again, I wirebrush the threads well, and put on a good wrapping of plumbers teflon tape on the threads. I always think that it makes a better seal, without having to over tighten, and makes it easier to remove at the end of the season. Sure, the tape is not electrically conductive, but there is still lots of metal to metal contact, which may or may not be required. Anyway, it has worked for me for over 15 seasons so far, with no problems.

RE: Ham radios

All the solutions seem good, but most require a license to operate legally. Which may or may not present a problem. The point I want to take is that if you or yours have any condition that might require emergency treatment, you might consider staying away from places that have no cell phone reception. Just another thought from an old, and getting older friend.

RE: Large camper with single AC

Simply putting a small fan inside, blowing the length of the rig helps a lot.

RE: Thoughts on slider awnings

We wouldn't be without them, but one important thing to remember ONE time. After a rain, have DW stand beside the slide to watch and make sure it rolls up properly. If there is much water on top, you will not need to do it more than once. Make sure you have the door locked from the inside first.

RE: Any good/cheap electric razor for camping?

I have used a Braun series 7 for a number of years at home and ave been very well pleased. So I bought a Braun series 3 at Walmart for less that was bubble-packed under $50. That was a BIG mistake. Get a good Braun, and it will do you well for many years. But the Series 3 model is junk.
