RE: Gatlinberg, TN and Ashville, NC

For Gatlinburg I have always enjoyed staying in the town of Townsend. Not a bad drive into Gatlinburg but way less crowded and much quieter. I'm not a KOA type person but the one in Townsend is excellent. There is also another campground next door to the KOA called Little Arrow. It is nice as well. Both are less than one mile from the entrance to the Smokey Mtn. National Park and much closer to Cades Cove than coming from Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg. For Asheville, if you need to be in/near the city, campfire Lodgings is nice. As another said above, Momma Gertries seems to get a lot of traffic but I have never stayed there myself. Lake Powhatan Recreational Area is near Asheville and is pretty nice as well.

RE: Cloudland Canyon SP GA

East rim is where the canyon views are. IMHO west rim has the best campsites, a more woodsy feel. I concur with that statement.

RE: Covers. Who uses them? Who doesn't?

I cover mine. It can be a pain to take it on and off. However, the other 10-15 campers I store mine next to do not get covered. It is real easy to see the difference in covering and not.

RE: Bucks Pocket Campground.

Yea it's amazing at all of the AL State Parks that have made significant upgrades since voters approved the second amendment state park protections several years ago. The thief's in Montgomery can no longer take state park revenue and put it elsewhere. All the parks get the money as they should have. On a side note, Buck's Pocket is always several degrees cooler than the surrounding area. Nice place for the summer time.

RE: TSD EFS App Problem?

Same here.

RE: How to camp with electric only

Usually there are spigots placed throughout the campground or one near the entrance. You will have to look online to see if the campground your going to has them or not. Or give them a call to find out. If they are spaced throughout or have a potable spigot near the entrance, I carry four, five gallon fresh water jugs with spouts with me and fill the camper using that method. Of course I use the blue tote to empty gray water once the camper gets full. If there is no potable water on site, fill the camper before you leave. Depending on length of stay and number of people in the camper will decide how much extra water to bring along with you.

RE: TSD Fuel Program Update

Got the same email. I think all of that started when Flying J/Pilot dropped the discounts form TSD card holders. There was a thread somewhere on here about that. Anyway, glad they picked up some more vendors, I love using that card at Loves.

RE: Coachman Catalinas

I had one for six years and spent a lot of time in it. It is considered an entry level camper had everything I needed at the time and was easy to upgrade and mod a few things. I recently bought a new Signature Series Rockwood, considered a little on the high end with every upgrade and option and had a few problems right out of the gate. It's all been fixed/replaced but point is they are like buying trucks. Some are great and some have problems right off of the assembly line. I believe what ever you get, you use as much as you can that first year while it is covered under a bumper to bumper warranty. Anything wrong will show its face by then.

RE: Colorado State Parks POSSIBLE May 4 Reopen

I have been keeping a close eye on this as well. I have reservations for Ridgway SP in June. Hopefully things will be opened up by then....

RE: Psssst...wanna see a Wall?

After it's complete, maybe a wall around California. Keep the dope, high taxes, homelessness, lawlessness, failed left wing policies out of the rest of the country.

RE: TSD Fuel Card

So I contacted Pilot/FlyingJ and this was the response I got about the TSD fuel card. "Thank you for contacting us regarding this issue. It was recently brought to our attention that TSD Logistics was reselling fuel by offering their discounts outside of their company. We were unaware of this activity and did not agree to the resale of our fuel. We appreciate your business and are available to discuss this directly by contacting us at (865) 474-3986." So it sounds to me that it is a game of wording. It was my understanding that when I applied for and received my TSD card, I was a part of the company technically speaking which allowed for the discounts to be received. I guess Pilot/FlyingJ perceived it differently. Hopefully they will not loose anything with Loves because that is where the big discounts were.

RE: TSD Fuel Card

Anyone use the TSD fuel card? Seems Pilot/FJ has suspended the great discount when using that card because of their relationship with Good Sam. Looks like the only thing you can now get at Pilot/FJ is their huge 8 cents a gallon discount on diesel This is from the TSD website: Quote: As of the end of the week, Pilot is officially retracting their discounts from our program due to their relationship with Good Sams. Good Sams has an exclusive contract with Pilot which prevents them from giving any discounts to the RV community through any other means. Every other discount is still in place. Where is that on their website? I cannot find it anywhere on their site. And how would they know it's an RV being filled up and not something else? Not questing you specific, just ticks me off.

RE: Any problems with Goodyear Endurance tires?

These seem to be the tires that everybody raves about right now. I need to replace mine this coming summer so I will be checking here for more reports about the GY Endurance tires. So far I have not heard a lot of bad reviews about them. Time will tell though....

RE: Covering your travel trailer

I’ve been using the same Adco cover now for 9 years. It does have a couple of minor wear marks where I didn’t pad sharp edges well enough, but it still works great, It is on the second tt, and both of them stayed new looking the entire time I’ve had them. ADCO has a repair patch kit on their website for 25 bucks. I just bought it to patch a few small holes/tears on my cover. I was really pleased with it.

RE: Second AC worth it?

As stated above, YES!. My previous travel trailer was 33ft. long and only had one. Current one is 35ft. and has two. Complete game changer during the summer. I've never heard anyone complain about having too much A/C in their camper, but plenty have complained about not having enough.

RE: Discount on fuel if paying with cash??

May I suggest TSD Logistics. The fuel card works at the pump where the big rigs fuel and saves big money. Works at all major truck stops as well. I have been using for several months and see an average of 30-45 cents cheaper than advertised. Here in Alabama I have saved as much as 54 cents per gallon at Loves. Do some research to find out more, there is also a good YouTube Video from Changing Lanes that talk about the fuel card.

RE: Is dash cam evidence allowed in an investigation

As a cop, I have looked at someones dash cam once when both parties were disputing the facts. After watching the footage , the at fault party had a sudden recollection and changed their story. I noted that in the wreck report and also that I observed clearly the at fault vehicle make an unsafe/illegal lane change and also failed to signal lane change. I advised the person with the footage to save it until all damages were settled. The insurance company actually got in touch with me and thanked me for taking the time to review the footage on the spot and notate everything on the wreck report. I cannot stand a liar and I come across them all the time.

RE: Fulltime family of 4: 2019 year in review

2019 was the year of Florida for us. We got here in November 2018 and didn't leave until August. Once we left, we weren't gone for long and were back again by November. We stuck around the summer so that my daughter could shadow a photographer during portrait sessions around Disney hotels. (And, well- it's cheap with Thousand Trails!) Fortunately, we did get out to the ABQ International Balloon Fiesta (where I met up with a couple of FROGs!). And then we stopped in Texas to see friends and hit a Fulltime Families rally. The map is a bit messy: width=600 The stats for the year: width=600 And then I uploaded pictures of most of the campsites to this post on Imgur: What campground did you use in Palo Duro Canyon SP? I have been eyeing a trip there myself and was looking at the Juniper Campground. It looks like you had a pretty good view in the one you were in.

RE: Howling wind

I was staying at the St. Mary KOA in East Glacier and thought our camper was going to blow over! Steady 35mph winds with gust in the 40's and 50's. Horrible, could not sleep at all due to the rocking and howling. Campground host acted like it happens all the time there. Someone mentioned slide current trailer has them on all of the slides but we have not camped in any high wind situations since we purchased it. What are you folks doing with them during high winds other than pulling the slides in? Will they stand up to a good beating?

RE: Quiet side of the Smokies

Just left yesterday from a camping trip in Townsend. We stayed at the KOA but have stayed in others along the river. Love the area and is hardly ever crowded (at least in the off season). Numerous places to eat as well. I could care less about going into Gatlinburg, way too crowded. My wife talked me into going just one time and people just seem to walk like cattle up and down the side walk on the main strip with no particular place to go or do. Never again!! I prefer the Townsend side and do my walking on the numerous trails that are in and around Cades Cove.
