RE: Maximum length rig considerations

My story, I had a 36' 3'5thwheel with more storage than I needed. So DW and I thought it was time to downsize. We looked and looked found a 30 Class A that we liked. After a little more than two years and some both long and short trips, found it lacking stuff. We just this past year went to a 37' MH. We have storage (tons) we can walk around each other, we feel comfortable on the rainy days. The 30 was just to much of a down size for us. We stay at private parks outside of the National parks. Trying to find a spot has not been a problem. For us the 30' just did not work

RE: 5 figure 30 foot

A few years back the DW and I decided we no longer needed the 35' 5th wheel with diesel dully. So we downsized to a 30' class a MH. There was nothing wrong with the MH the v10 did everything ask of it. After about 2.5 years we decided that we down sized a little two much. The Class A lacked great seating, lacked storage, lacked just over all move around room. All things the 5th wheel had. We knew we where on the wrong side of the loan so a great used A was in our future. We need room for longer trips, move around room. We ended up with a great deal on a 37' diesel pusher. I have not even begun to fill the outside bins let alone the inside cabinets and we have move around room. I guess what I am saying is do not downsize to much.

RE: North from Colorado to Mt Rushmore

A few years ago did somewhat the same route. I would highly recommend spending a couple nights at Fort Robinson State park. Their rv park is great if you are into history this is a place you will want to stop at.

RE: Water pressure problem

Have you checked and cleaned the aerator screen at the end of the faucet? You might also want to check to see if you have any type of screens on the water connection to your coach.

RE: 2012 Thor Avanti Diesel

I forgot you should visit the folks at the Thor Forum.

RE: 2012 Thor Avanti Diesel

Looking at all the pictures from you and other places, its not a diesel pusher. The engine is in the front so you may get more noise, would have to drive to see. I downsized from a 35ft 5th wheel to a 29.3 ACE. After two years in the ACE we decided that we downsized to much. I had no real complaints about the ACE the V10 work far better than I thought. The interior quality of the ACE was not there but then I knew that going into. You may want to rethink the only one AC and 30amp. My ACE had only one 15000 and it work hard to keep the unit cool. With 30 amp its hard to add another AC. Good Luck and enjoy

RE: Do you own a THOR ACE 30.x?

I had a 2017 29.3 ACE. It had a large single wall slide. We downsized from a large 5th wheel to the ACE. After a little over 2 years and 20000 miles we found out that we downsized to much so had to trade for a larger unit. Anyway the ACE had only the one 15000 but AC. We found that yes two may have been better, however by covering the ceiling vents, and the use of a couple small fans life went on without much problem. My wife did make a very good reflective new front curtain. That help more than anything. As for the rest of the coach, I had no major problems, some minor that happens through out travels. Make sure you stay up on oil changes and grease that kind of thing.

RE: Parking in Jacksonville, FL Wal Mart

I also vote to support local MA and PA campgrounds. If not one day they will all be gone.

RE: Survey for online reservation vs old school phone and email

1) No, I like to talk to folks. I do reserve on line with state parks etc. but if phone is an option I will always call. Keep it personable 2) No, but for operators its the only way to help make the budget. I am sure between no shows and short cancelations this is a way to make up some of the difference. 3)Yes 4) If you mean by this you are saving sites for folks who call, that's not right. You are either online reservations or phone you have to be all in on both of the systems. 5) I have just finished making some reservations for a large group. A phone call followed up with a emailed list of the folks. Most parks I have dealt with have given me a window for all parties to call and make payment etc. Again the more conversation between folks the better off. One of the biggest things for me is a lot of sites are making the person jump through so many hoops just to get a nightly price.KOA is a good one for that. Some sites do not even list there prices, I do not take the time to visit them. Keep up the good work

RE: Visiting Family in Memphis, need safe rv park

I am another one for Tom Sawyer, great place. Its easy to get to and from Memphis. Stayed there this past year had a river front site, got my fill of watching the barges going on the river.

RE: Sarasota Fl. to Branson Mo. campsite suggestions.

If you are talking about the Memphis area, I would recommend Tom Sawyers in west Memphis. It really in Arkansas see if you can get a river side pull through. Watch the barges all day long.

RE: Wiper Motor Fuse Location in Thor Vegas

You might try asking the folks over at the Thor forum. I used to have a Thor ACE and those folks were helpful. As for the fuses I know on my ACE I had two separate fuse blocks inside on the drivers side. One was on the firewall and the other on the side wall. Both hard to get to.

RE: jack pads

I was parked in a field for a rally when it rained and rained some more. The yellow lego things sunk may be 2+ inches. I was lucky to get the jacks up. When home and ordered Jack pads from Outrigger (bigfoot) and are they great. I got the 15x15x1.5 and can not be happier. I would check them out.

RE: Graceland RV Park & Campground

Was in Memphis this past Sept., did not stay at Graceland. When we visited Graceland the park is more or less right there. If I had not book a 5night stay at Tom Sawyers that would be my next place. Side note plan on almost a full day at Graceland. By the time you go on the Graceland tour then they have building after building of all Elvis stuff. Its worth the time. We did a full day at Beale street, Sun Studio etc. If you are into Zoos there's another full day, great zoo however.

RE: pressure washers

I have always used a pressure washer on my units. I do however make sure of a couple things. Try and go with the graphics so as not to get under the edge. I always use the fan type spray never the full pressure one. Over the years I have never seen a problem. I put a diluted turtle wax, wash and wax product in the soap reservoir. Wet down the a part of the rig spray the wash and was on. I then use a brush made for RVs to help remove the dirt. Rise off and go to next section, and so on

RE: Custer SP?

RE: Winter Storage

2) You should have a separate switch that turns just the invertor off. It is most likely on the invertor display panel. There is no need for it to be on because you are on shore power. 3) I believe (could be wrong) but they are referring to things like the ant. power boost, frig, water heater, TV, etc. things that draw power. There will always be some 12v draw and 110 draw but you have taken down most it. Remember to check your battery water levels monthly

RE: Estes park colorado

A couple years ago we stayed at the KOA there. I am not a fan of KOA but we wanted FHU, went to Estes in fall to see and hear the Elk Bugle. That's worth it!! Anyway the KOA was a typical one close together etc. There is one between the KOA and the park but can not remember the name.

RE: Niagara Falls scow moved

Was there just this August its something to see. You have to wonder how its been able to stay it one spot that long. I do believe something will or should be done, as DW said how would you like to be on one of the boats and that thing went over the falls. One side if possible to get a recording of it would be great, on the other it could be dangerous coming over the falls.

RE: South Dakota, July 2020

Great trip. The badlands and wall can be done from one campground. As can Custer, Rushmore, crazy horse. Have not been to deadwood but it may fall into that not having to move area. We stayed at Sleepy Hollow RV park in Wall. Great spot for both the city and Badlands, while there do not forget the Missile Soul tour. Stayed at Ft. WeLikit rv park in the city of Custer. Found it to be a great park and well within driving for all that is around that part of SD. Where ever you end up staying make your plans very early as you will be going there in the middle of the season.
