Southern Louisiana in November

So what's Southern Louisiana in November like? Thinking about heading that way and taking in Grand Isle SP and what ever. Coming from the midwest and wanting to escape the cold. Want to take in several State Parks, but not the NOLA scene. Cities aren't us. Been to Palmetto Island SP years ago and loved it. Any recommendations/avoidances to be aware of? Thanks

Leveling Jacks pro & con

Thinking about up sizing from a 22' to a 26' class C and am thinking about adding leveling jacks. We have blocks, but have only used them once in over 2 years, but with a 26 footer it might be a different story. My question is: are leveling jacks really worth it? Not only in dollar amounts, but also considering the weight factor. The convenience factor is unquestioned. But there again, when do I put blocks under the jacks or don't you? What are the limits, etc? FYI We mainly like COE, State, TVA, etc. and some municipal parks. Rarely do commercial.

Dorian & Myrtle Beach SP

We have/had plans to stay at Myrtle Beach SP near the end of September but wonder what impact Dorian has had on the state park and the area in general. How the state park is fairing and what if anything we should be aware of. We don't require much, just 30 amp and a level site. Sure hope this disaster didn't affect all the folks there much.

RE: Where do you search for parks?

I generally start withAll US Campgrounds and fine tune from there. As mentioned earlier check google maps for the green is another good starting point. /And my very best favorite site for checking the campground is Toad Hall. This gentleman has compiled one of the most complete informative site I have ever seen. He may not cover every campground or area that you seek, but the ones he does is spectacular. (Great RailRoad info also).

RE: Lower Michigan west coast druthers

As much as I wanted to visit Ludington SP, I think we'll pass. Thanks for all the great responses. We're gonna hit Indiana Dunes SP and then continue our trek east. thanks again all!

Lower Michigan west coast druthers

We will be spending the night or so at Indiana Dunes SP and have some time to kill before our appointment in Elkhart, IN. My question is: Looking for another spot for a night along the Michigan western coast and figure that we can comfortable drive up to Ludington if needed and still make our appointment on time. Which campground/state park is the better for campsite, beach, sights, etc., etc? All the state parks I have researched appear about the same. (Warren Dunes, Van Buren, Holland, Grand Haven, Hoffmaster, Muskegon, Silver Lake, Mears, and Ludington. Not big on private parks, but for a night and a day, could live with it if the amenities/sights were worth it. 24' with 30amp only, don't need water or sewer.

RE: Have not Camped Mid Season For Awhile....

Even in the later part of the year sites can be hard to get. Especially in the destination areas, Smokey Mts, Disney World, any beach local, etc. We are planning a Sept/Oct trip and moving about regularly. We might have to make reservations for the week ends, we'll see. Best to check the sites you're interested in and keep tabs on the vacancies.

RE: Recommend me a Vacume Food Bagger

I can make my own bags out of the exact material that I buy from them at half the cost or less when bought on sale. Splain Lucy. Please!

RE: Recommend me a Vacume Food Bagger

I like to smoke ribs, chops, whatever and seal them in our Seal-A-Meal, freeze them and throw them in the RV freezer. After a day's driving, at the campsite just throw them in the microwave and just like fresh cooked/smoked. No muss, no fuss> And great tasting food. Seal-A-Meal for me!

RE: Thinking of a Mercedes Class C

I have to agree with ron.dittmer. And #7 for us was the major reason.

RE: Clean Water Heater

DW has corrected my post about the vinegar mixture. I said 2 water to 1 vinegar. She said it was 4 parts water to 1 vinegar. Sorry for the confusion.

RE: Inexpensive ‘home park’ so we can get RPI

Tyler0215, I'm with you. The best that I could find is that RPI is the lazy way of saying "Resort Parks International". KM, I could find nothing on. Guess I don't need to know.

RE: Clean Water Heater

We had a nasty rotten egg odor coming from our hot water tank. I did some research and between all the advice I found I devised my own method that worked. Pulled out the drain plug and cleaned it thoroughly. Got our pump up garden sprayer and put in a mixture of 1 part vinegar to 2 parts water. Inserted the plastic spray wand and squirted in all directions. I also removed the nozzle tip so the liquid sprayed more to the sides, rather than straight ahead. While spraying the liquid will run out the drain where the sprayer is inserted, so you'll get flowing out. After using about a gallon of the liquid I let it set for an hour or so then got the hose with aRV water tank cleaning wand. This did remove the vinegar odor and reached up and all the tank. You will probably get wet! And that's it! Replace the plug turn the bypass to open to the heater, run some through and you should be good to go. Or at least we were. Hope this helps.

Mama Gerties

Just booked a night at Mama Gerties in early October. The only site they had available and only for Sunday night. Is this campground worth the hype? We've often heard how wonderful it is, so we just had to find out. We like to consider ourselves more campers than RVers and are not use to the RV Park scene. Don't care for the shoulder to shoulder parking, need some space. Did we make a mistake? Oh well just gotta find out for ourselves.

RE: Do you contribute ?

I try to contribute to Campgroundreviews, not as often as I should, but I do contribute. Another site I add my reviews on is I have found that it has helped many times.

Where to in Georgia? We're from the midwest and thinking of heading south in Feb but most everything is full. Just wondering what you found.

RE: Where do you Post Campground Reviews?

I post on campground reviews as well on A newer up and coming site that needs help, but is fun. And about campground reviews, my biggest gripe is the ability to search, especially COE parks. Some are listed as XYZ Campground while others are listed as XYZ Recreation Area and still XYZ park or even simply XYZ. I wish their search engine was better. If you type in XYZ and it is listed under XYZ Park it will not show up. But I do post when I get wifi connections on the road. When I get home I tend to forget to many details, so don't post.
