RE: Satellite TV is Dead, Direct TV just lost 267,000 customers

In our park there are no OTA TV channels. We cant get wifi bandwith yet to allow streaming YET. we have the wifi infrastructure in place, just waiting on our IP to lay fiber into the camp Promised this year. Our CATV through Dish is $600/ mo for 24 basic channels and we do all service and own the equipment! When our ip brings in fiber to give us 2 gigs instead of the 50 mbps currently, we will be able to allow streaming at half the cost of CATV and we wont have the cost of those 24 dish recievers , modulators, combiners boosters eating up power as well as the troubles with guests who cant get the signal because they dont know where their antenna booster is to turn it off. When we can get the bandwidth to allow wifi streaming, the catv is gone. So long sat. tv.

RE: RV Parks charging for water use?

EPA rules governing non community water systems ( look up EPAs. RGWR. Revised ground water rules) were forced on the states to implement 3 years ago. as a result monthly testing for sanitation, annual for metals, nitrates/its, and other contaminates are good for the public health and quality, however add substantial cost and time to the water system manager. Should a water sample test above levels, or positive for contaminates remedy is even more costly. If a rural camp has always had good water with only periodic well chlorination then experiences a flood or excessive rainfall which contaminates the next sample, even though its a moment event , then RGWR requires that water system to install continuous treatment. $$$$ quality potable water cost has gone up. Small systems bear the highest cost especially if they are forced to install continuous treatment or God forbid, a no drinking water order while they conform to the new regulations. Individual site water metering is a difficult proposition. Likely only warm winter camps could justify cost, as in colder locations meters would have to placed deep underground or heated. Ala Carte will become the normal for monthlys and seasonal. Site. Power. Water. Wifi basic or streaming. Pay for what you use. Its only right, and fair to savers and to wasters.

RE: Low Heat Output

A duct that fell off? Get a IR heat gun, check temps at exhaust, floor vents, in basement. Compare to yours.

RE: Searching for a summer campground

A prime location in prime season, prime site, Concrete slab, sat. friendly, unlimited utility use. For what reasonable fee? I do not know of any camp that would be able or wish to host you for less than 1K/ mo. plus elec. Lower your expectations or be prepared to pay your own elec. will open a lot of nice places to you. Why concrete, Whats wrong with gravel?

We are considerind a few hour visit to Acuna this week. We would ride bicycles from the US, over the bridge. Please direct us to parking for our Tow near the bridge. Eagle pass was our first choice, however it looks troublesome with migrants. Thanks , Max

RE: Has anyone taken the Hwy 385

A little hilly. Grades are easy. Not mountainous, in SD from Hot Springs to Neb. state line, 4 lane. Also, I'm not aware of aplace called 4 corners along US 385 from its start in Deadwood SD south into Co. OP , double check on which forum you post your question. You should have posted in roads and routes , not forum help. A moderator will likely correct it for you.

RE: How cold have you experienced?

There are thousands of RVers who winter camp/ winter over in conditions unfathomable to vacationers. You wont find them here on a forum like this . There a very few, who are members here who did it for work or necessity of which pianotuna, bobs your uncle and I have been there for own reasons for long times. Bob in -36c in a TT in Calgary, 'Tuna in -36c in Class C, I in 2 different TTs modified for the cold. in - 44c ( 48 below F) Always had running water. Thousands winter over in ND and CDN oulfields in every sort of Rv. It is not easy. They do it for financial reasons, to work to be productive. often there is no other choice. I did it to keep my family together even in the worst conditions.

RE: Rapid City, SD

Blizzards domt happen in April in Nebraska or SD. , Maybe a snow event with deep but local narrow band accumulation. Temps are just below freezing for that short time rise quickly to melt. Roads are fine witjin a day or 2. They are predictible, easily planned around events. Weve even had guests come to see the beauty of the snow on the pines, Washingtons nose. Plan for adventure!

RE: Rapid City, SD

April is very changeable. Its predictable. Watch for the storms coming out of the Rockies around Denver heading toward Winnipeg. 70 one day, 30 the next. Dont worry about it come on you may have to wait a day or 2 somewhere, or in SD to move on. The good news is that bad weather averages a 3-4 days n the month, so many good days.

RE: A Different Approach to Snowbirding

Pickup as a toad? yes. Consider getting a couple of 80 gal. or larger plastic tanks, one for fresh, one for waste and a macerator pump to carry in the pickup. Then you are your own fill and dump station. Some of the counties around where I live have a 3 acre minimum, outside city limits but no restriction or zoning on how you use it. Find an area you like and check with the AHJs there.

RE: New Mexico Red Sauce -- this travels very well!

We made up this sauce with the original recipe. Did not like it at first decided to give it a little vinegar for preservative, and time to mellow. Its wonderful now!

RE: KOA Membership

My camp is a GS park. We have a KOA Holiday right next door. We both do a good business with a different clientele, ours tends to be return guests and those who do more research, theirs the 'one click' reservation with few return guests. They have features we do not, we have features they dont. We cooperate and give each others guests use of our each special features. We have unique waterpark features, they have jumping pillows and cookouts. Its a win- win for both of us and our guests. We travel extensively and learn from every place we park for a night or up to a month camp be it public, private,boondock, wallydock a driveway at a friends. Nothing is off the table. Price is not our concern, the experience is. I plan our ave. 3 mo. winter walkabouts with a search of all at my fingertips. For an overnight, any place along the way. Service unimportant just a power plug Or not if we can run the genny if needed. . Access is. For the destination, services suitable for our needs, access to our interests. I verify that with reviews on, tripadvisor and google earth satellite view. We have had and used all the discount memberships. each has value if you use them, generally they are only valid for short visits or specific days. You decide how and when you want to travel to what area to experience. Memberships are useful to many. Restrictive to many. Cut loose go anywhere without being on a leash. Then you are free RVer

RE: Tire wear, bent axle, replace or trade

Tire wear and blaking power was very poor on our 16k 5er. I changed the 2 7k dexter manual adjust 12x2 brake axles for 2 8k dexter axles with 2 3/8 x 12 1/4 forward self adjusting brakes. Upped the tires( worn out china bombs) to G from E. 8 years later, about 35 k miles later the tires are still good, brake power much better and dont overheat. Look into upgrading the axles and tires. Its a simple 3 hour wrench job. Sell your old axles recover part of the cost. I use for parts

RE: Why you don’t double tow with travel trailer

Legal in many States and Provinces. Like any double tow correct hitch weight and set up make it possible, safe. Increaed tongue weigh on the first trailer to compensate for the rearward shift of weight caused by the tongue weight of the second trailer. Brakes and sway control bars on both trailers. That guy did it all wrong.

RE: RV Park under 50k updates! (It's a disaster)

Now might be the time for a real investor to pick it up for peanuts. That is if it has Location, Zoning, Access, Utilities, or reasonable ability to install them. There are a thousand stories like this where land without a plan or finance ended up a success when transferred to the right people.
