RE: Camping with no reservations

We recently returned fro touring Pennsylvania, Maryland, into West Virginia and Kentucky. Our trip was planned according to what campgrounds had a vacancy. Made reservations for each on the 13 stops. Much to our dislike it was a necessity. Thinking about upper Wisconsin and then the UP and pretty much the same story. Really had to made reservations going by a 1" x 2" picture, but some times you just gotta do what you gotta do. Good luck & keep us posted. Stay safe.

RE: % bleach to sanitize fresh water tanks

Sanitizing the fresh water tank. Has anyone used this? Looks pretty slick, but what the heck it's just another $30 gizmo to add to the RV paraphernalia list. Just when I thought the cost of the RV ended as we drove off the lot. Live & learn.

RE: Compressor, inflation chuck, and pressure gauge info needed

I have a stick type gauge that I think is not accurate. Bought one with a dial and needle. Easier to read. However, when testing my hand truck tires the stick read 52 while the dial one read 64. Pretty extreme differences. How do I know which is correct? And/or how do I get them checked? thanks

Marco & Laura

Thinking about going to the Florida panhandle heading west to Louisiana Grand Isle SP the end on October/early November. That is, if Marco and/or Laura (hurricanes/storms) leave things in tact. We'd be leaving Fort Pickens, FL and having a night over at either Fairview-Riverside State Park or Tickfaw State Park. A 26' motor home, using 30amp electric, water not needed, but dump facilities would be nice. Which of those two do you prefer & why? Or is there a better park near there? Been to Fontainebleau State Park and rather not repeat. Don't want the New Orleans scene or city sights. thanks

RE: Class B or B+ recommendations?

B+. Check out the Phoenix Cruiser link 2100 (B+) or even their new TRX (B). We had a 2100 and just upgraded to the newer 2351D, due to DW's back issues. The sleeper sofa is nice, but still a sofa that sleeps.

Instant up canopy

Looking for the impossible I think. Want an instant up type canopy 10 x 10 give or take. But the caveat is the storage/shipping length. Has to be about 3 foot or under to fit in our rig. Did see one years at a NDOG from Academy Sport with legs that had three sections and can't find it again. Prefer the straight leg, water proof, easy up type. If it exists. Did look into back packing types, but they all had the fiberglass type bendable poles that, so it looked, took three Swiss engineers and a small platoon to erect. Need something simple and compact. Might even have to compromise on the size, if need be. Thanks in advance.

RE: Where to Dump?

Edd505, thanks for the link. That just might come in real handy. Super!

RE: refrigerator door prop

My Norcold has a little sliding tab just under the handle on the refrigerator and freezer. I wonder if yours does too. It looks like a pin or button just under the handle that slides out and engages a hole in the door frame. Once slid over the door will stay ajar and not open or close until you slide the tab back. No got. Our previous RV was set up that way also, but not this one. Found a tiny strip of metal around both the freezer and the fridge itself. Got some rare earth magnets, 1/4" dia, and some masonite scrapes for both the inside and outside of the doors,and fashioned a prop that should work. No holes, no marks and easily removable and replaceable. Thanks for all the ideas.

RE: Tire pressure gauges

Thanks RAS43. Good idea. Next time I'm at my local service shop I'll have them test it for me.

Tire pressure gauges

Have the typical stick type gauge, which I don't trust. So I bought one with a dial and needle. Got home to check it out and Great it works real nice. 64 lbs. Got out the old stick type and it reads 52 lbs. How do I know which is correct? But a third one and take the average?

RE: Looking for a NW Iowa park

Your header says NW Iows and the copy reads SE. Try this site. It sure helps us.

RE: Nice COE campgrounds

COE parks are our favorites, especially with the geezer pass. As a rule they are the cleanest, best kept up and generally neatest parks we've stayed at in our 49 years of camping. Always first on our list when planning.

RE: refrigerator door prop

I would be opposed to leave the doors wide open as I read on another forum that someone did that for 3 months over the winter and the doors sagged and would not close tightly. Therefore I don't want even want to attempt it. Don't know the type of RV, fridge model or anything, just that it scared me as not to try this. Might try the newspaper or charcoal ideas if my newest brainstorm turns out to be a brain fart. Thanks for all the input.

refrigerator door prop

Our new RV is great, but one draw back the fridge/freezer door has no catch to hold the door slightly ajar during storage. Any ideas on what to use. Can't use the magnet type, all plastic. Our storage parking spot is on a slight cant and the door swings open is not secured. Tried to contact Norcold, but no reply, to see if they could suggest something. It will be a while before we put it in storage, but don't want to wait till the last minute. Thoughts, remedies, ideas, links, any help is appreciated. thanks

RE: Back to the '70s!!!!

Missouri State Parks have no entrance fees and the camping rate is the same for residents or non. Missouri has some of the best parks, in my opinion, in the country. And the whole thing is funded by a 1/8 of 1% sales tax. All headed by the Department of Conservation, which does an exceptional job. It is quite a shock to go to, say, Michigan and pay an entrance fee plus a $5.00 non-resident up charge. An Michigan isn't the only one.

RE: Apostle Island area

We will have a 26' coach and from Pattison the next stop is Copper Falls for a couple of days. Then onto the UP with some time at Little Girls Point County park. Thanks for the info.

Apostle Island area

Plan to head to Pattison SP in Wisconsin in mid Sept and always wanted to see Apostle Island. Although we probably won't go to the island(s) them selves, still want to see the area. Buy some good smoked fish and see the sights before heading on to the UP. Any pros or cons for a 26' coach? What's worth seeing and what's not. thanks

RE: camping in heber springs arakansas

Nice area. We stayed at the Dam Site(Greers Ferry). Enjoyed the town and the whole area. Pleasant, quiet park, but that was 10 years ago.
