RE: Where to in June

Yes and some of East Tenn. Might even go up to the Blue Ridge Parkway for a brief length and some sights. Thanks again to all.

RE: Where to in June

We're looking now as we know how crowded things have become and in June even more so. So we'd like to start making reservations, much to my chagrin, as soon as some of the booking windows open. Thanks for all the replies. Looking more towards the upper Georgia/South Carolina area and hitting plenty of COE parks.

RE: Custom rims for my Class C

Maybe a nice quality set of stainless steel simulators? I've always thought those looked good. But get the bolt on type. Look great & no fear of them popping off & rolling down the road.

Where to in June

Being in St. Louis, MO we're looking for a place to go in mid June. Seems any place near large bodies of water, i.e. Great lakes, Gulf Coast, or even Atlantic coast, are all booked. Don't care for private parks. We're more State, COE, municipal or even FamCamp park people. What we generally prefer is a week of driving about 3 hours and spend a night, another of the same and spend two nights, repeating until we reach our destination for 5 or so days. Then return the same method, but different route. Like to explore the destination area, but then tend to get "happy feet" and the itch to be on the road to some place different. 26' B+ needing only electric, but full hook ups are nice. Thanks for your ideas.

RE: Electric Smoker for Long Term

I'm partial to RecTec. Heavy duty construction and their service is second to none if you ever have a question or problem. IMHO

Catalytic converter anti-theft

Any one install a Catalytic converter anti-theft device. Just had ours ripped off in the storage lot. Now looking for a good device to prevent this. Any one use such a device? If so which did your choose and why. thanks

RE: What's in your tool kit? What about other must-haves?

A pint of Jack Daniels. In case of snake bite.

Arnold AFB FamCamp, TN

Any one have any input or thoughts on Arnold AFB FamCamp for a night or 2 in October? Reviews sound ok, but some how leave a nagging question in my mind. One source says concrete pads, another says gravel. Doesn't seem to be a check in office or gate. Just not sure. Sure would be convenient for our needs. thanks

Avoiding Nashville

Any easy way to avoid Nashville coming from Pennyrile SP, KY to Tims Ford SP,TN? Is it better to grin & bear it & go through or to fudge around & try to skirt it? Just hate taking the RV through that city!!!

RE: Palmetto Island State Park

Loved Palmetto Island State Park. It was a couple of years & storms earlier and it was super. Far better than Grand Isle, but of a different ilk, both are nice. Palmetto has more secluded, private sites where Grand Isle is more big rig oriented.

RE: CG Suggestions

We just returned from hocking hills state park ohio a year ago. Confusing park with multiple campgrounds, but lovely sites (waterfalls, moderate woodsy hiking and mountain, water, river views, etc). Reservations are a must. Tight sites and large crowds, but it is a popular park.

Garmin RV890 voices

Has anyone with the Garmin RFV890 tried to change the default voice of Zoe to another voice? I tried, even talked with tech support many times and have done many steps and trials to no avail. Gramin even sent me a replacement unit. Went through the same rig-a-ma-rol with no success, even with several sessions with several tech. Not the biggest problem in the world, but it is advertised as having this ability. And after paying good money I would believe it should work as said. The only reply I get from Garmin is that they are working on a fix, watch my emails for updates. If you have a RV890, I ask that you try to change the voice and see if it works. If not I also ask you to email of phone the company and ask why. Again it's not a huge deal. It is a great unit, but has become the principle of the thing. thanks

RE: Tunnels, bridges & hair pin turns

First off, OK Custer SP. and/or where ever. My quest is to find a way to put in parameters to google maps, or such a site/app, easily to help define a decent/safe route without retracing steps. Guess what I'm saying is, is there a way to put such parameters into google maps, or similar, to avoid those hazards?

Tunnels, bridges & hair pin turns

Heading out to the badlands for the first time and heard about some of the roads, tunnels, etc and their limitations. We have a 26'Class C and am trying to find routes we can take. Is there a web site we can get this info. Rather not leave it up to the GPS when we get there, but rather know what to expect before hand. So, looking for websites, etc to help with routing. thanks

Sylvan Lake Campground to Mt Rushmore

Sylvan Lake campground in Custer State Park to Mount Rushmore in a 26’ Class C. I was told it was better to avoid Hwy 87 from the campground to 244 and go around thru the town of Custer up 385 then over 244 to the monument. Any ideas about this?

RE: Route planning help

I just tried RV Trip Wizard and it seems to be the best alternative I've found. Seems cumbersome, but there again I just started to learn it. I will continue to search. Wish google maps had parameters you could enter for the best route. thanks all

Route planning help

Our upcoming first trip to the badlands is wrought with concerns. Help! How do I find which roads I can drive with my 26' RV, tunnels, turns & narrow roads etc? Is there a site, app or such that can help? We want to go from Sylvan Lake Campground in Custer SP to Spearfish via Mt. Rushmore and I noticed there are tunnels hair pin turns & very narrow roads (google street view) that make me very nervous. Some tunnels are marked with height limits, some are not. How do I gather this info? I don't want to turn around on a one lane road and retrace a half days drive. Thanks

RE: Must I have a toad with a 27' Class C?

It comes down to personal preferences and familiarity of vehicle. We have a 26' RV with a double e-bike rack on the back and have no issues. If we stay at/near a heavy populated area & want to go out for dinner there' always a rental car or the Uber route. Just a quart of milk or so from the local store, the e-bikes come in handy.

RE: Bad lands area

All the replies have been so helpful. Thank you all. We have night at Cedar Pass Campground on our way to Devil's Tower and just penciled in the Longhorn Saloon & Grill for lunch. Sounds right up our alley as does many of the other places. Thanks again y'all.
