RE: Waco to Harlingen TX

We use US77 to avoid all the big city traffic

RE: Sewer Pipe Question

Yuk - tp goes in the toilet and regular septic safe paper is fine. Generous water when you flush and you are good. Been full-time 10 years with no sewer issues. Don't need a deodorizer if you use water. If you are smelling something, then you have a bad seal, don't use enough water when you flush, or have the overhead fan on pulling the odor inside.

RE: Camping Lights

Some of the rvs come with a flood light type light for their porch lite, and those bright florescent color lights on the front of trailers is obnoxious, and then they hang more! I guess everyone is afraid of the dark.

RE: RV Skylight Shade Above Shower

The glass in our skylight is dual pane and is smoked. We don't get much heat or cold either one thru the skylight but do get light in. Early am, I wish it was much darker than it is.

RE: Norcold fridge

When our Norcold 1200 did that, it was the circuit board.

RE: Lane Closures I-10 Westbound at Atchafalaya Basin Bridge

We used 190 to avoid I-10 thru LA going east with class A towing, thought it was a decent road, but many of the complaints on here we don't find to be accurate for us. We don't mind 2 lane or 55mph.

RE: Full Hookup Sites on Lake Michigan

Better make any reservation soon as the state parks fill up fast. We have worked in no alcohol parks and as long as you don't advertise that you are drinking, it's usually okay. No one knows what you have in your cup. Do Not however allow anyone to leave the keg sitting where it's visible, the 6 pack or whiskey bottle. If someone gets drunk and causes a scene or loud obnoxious behavior you will have trouble and the fines are not cheap. If, you cannot guarantee that someone in your group will not be like that, can't observe quiet time etc, then I wouldn't drink in a no alcohol park.

RE: full timing

We have done minor repairs at campgrounds and rv parks, never had any major to do. Most of the time they don't even know what you are doing. Oil changes also. Just don't make a big production of it. We have even washed our rig with no problem. There are parks that allow you to, or charge a minimal fee for the water usage.

RE: El Paso Wally docking

We spent the night in Van Horn TX which was about an hour east of El Paso then drove thru El Paso at about 11am. We stayed at the Walmart just off I-10 in Las Cruces. They have 24 hour security and welcome rvers. Security was not because of any problems and we had a very quiet peaceful night.

RE: Towing 5th Wheel from IL to PHX in March

We take I-57 to US60 East to Poplar Bluff MO, then I30 south into Texarkana. We then have various routes depending on where we are going, but NEVER go thru Houston, Dallas-Ft Worth, Austin or San Antonio. There are some toll roads so you have to pay attention to that also . When we went a couple years ago we went west in TX, then south to I-20 and S down to I-10. Every FM (Farm to Market) road and state road we have been on so far has been just fine for a rv. Speed limits on many of those roads are 70 /75 mph.

RE: RV King Topper

If it's lightweight, it won't be the comfortable one you want.

RE: Alone or in a group?

Mostly alone, spur of the moment things with other campers or family. We have met people we stay in contact with by camping at the same location for a few days. Travel is definitely alone.

RE: Tornado Season

We travel thru tornado alley each spring into MI from south to north. As we travel we pay attention to weather and if there are spring storms north of us, we sit where we are until they pass. We have never had one hit where we are, luckily. Just know where you should go to seek shelter and have your weather radio on. We have a Eton Scorpion that automatically connects for weather in the location where we are at. It is solar charged, or can be hand cranked to charge. You can charge a cell phone off it, listen to music (never do) has a flashlight and a couple other hand gadgets. We would highly recommend this weather radio and it is only about $40 -- we have used ours for at least 5 years

RE: 500 gallon propane tank

Yes, we have done that when hosting at forestry parks.

RE: How to lose an awning

One of those places that say they are big rig friendly, then you get there and it's NOT!

RE: Wierd bathroom water problem

Low flow in our toilet is our first clue that it's time to change our water filter.

RE: Very Bad RV Wreck in Oregon

Not Walmart's fault - not at all. Just a good explanation of why someone would be out there after dark driving those type of road when they were tired. It's bad enough to drive with no shoulder during the day, but even worse at night when tired.

RE: Is Socializing a Dying Thing in the RV Community?

We have been full-time since 2011 and have noticed the same things the entire time we have been traveling out here. There are some that will wave and say hi, but don't seem like they really want any conversation. Our idea of socializing though IS NOT activities at a snowbird park. Parks we have stayed at longer term there has been 1 or 2 others that were genuinely friendly that you could sit/chat with for awhile and maybe a bbq or two, but most, no.

RE: Very Bad RV Wreck in Oregon

Very sad that they had stopped for the night at a Walmart and were made to leave because no parking allowed. That is why the driver was out there at night and sleepy. Had probably already been driving all day. Had no money for a tow, probably had no money for a campground "if" they could even find one.
