RE: Class C vs Trailer for Cross country with family? Help

Don’t forget to carry a solar generator for your Rv I found some options ***Link Removed*** The planned trip will have him driving several hours per day...shouldn't need extra generation beyond the alternator.:b. That is spam advertising from someone who joined today. Dave

RE: Who do you use for Insurance?

We recently shifted everything to Mapfre insurance. Tough to get home owners on an island and tough to get an RV covered Massachusetts. They did both saving us almost 3 grand a year from our previous policies. Dave

RE: Required signing waiver of responsibilty

I guess you wouldn’t mind if the roofer changed the type of shingles after you had signed a contract with him. If the OP hadn’t paid in full and created a contract with the park I would agree, but they are changing the contract after the fact. This assumes there is no fine print on the reservation form saying you will be asked to sign a release. Dave

RE: Fighting zoning ordinances that hurt RV owners

Amazing how many people don't bother to read the entire thread before posting their learned opinion. The OP has stated a number of times he does not live in an HOA :(. DAve

RE: Fighting zoning ordinances that hurt RV owners

They tried to institute this in a town where I used to live. It was a beach town and boats were okay in driveways but some people didn't want RV's. Luckily I was an elected councilman at the time and lobbied against it (pointing out that boats ARE recreational vehicles) until it was dropped. Dave

RE: What "NAME" can you call that Class B?

... there's nothing that will run an RV A/C other than shore power or a generator. Oops. You might want to take a look at what people are doing with Lithium batteries... Winnebago running AC off Batteries for 12 hours. Then they add a UHG and charge back up while traveling the next day. Dave

RE: I-95 checkpoint entering Florida???

No Interstates had or have Checkpoints. every highway & interstate going into California have check points.Yeah, somebody needs to get out more :B. Some states have removed them but others are still in place. Dave

RE: Week in Maine. Where would you go?

Next time we head up towards Acadia we are going to check out the Schoodic Peninsula part of the park Schoodic Peninsula in Acadia. Dave

RE: Basic questions about Class B's

I’m sure the Roadtrek Zion is nice but you just switched gears. Your discussion has been the you seem to get more in a B+ or a C verses a B, but when I pointed out some major differences you say you liked the Roadtrek B. I’m just kind of losing track of what you are trying to compare and what point you are trying to make. Dave

RE: Basic questions about Class B's

On the surface the 24 ft B, B+, C- or C are all the same length same height and the B + and C are slightly wider. What are the details I am not seeing? Your statement: "It had the Ford 350 chassis and did not ride as well as the B's that I test drove..." for one. They drive completely differently. Your second statement "...B + and C are slightly wider" is interesting. My B is 76" wide while the Regency "B+" 94" wide per their specs. That's 18 inches of "slightly wider" :B which takes you out of parking between the lines in pretty much every standard parking spot. Dave

RE: Do most parks check/copy your ID? (Victims of ID theft)

So tell me, how DO you pay for your camp site? If paying by credit card gives them too much information, you certainly won’t pay by check with your home address printed on it. Do you travel with a wad of cash and use an alias when checking in? I guess reservations are out of the question. Dave

RE: Do most parks check/copy your ID? (Victims of ID theft)

Or the 18 year old sells the numbers & ID information to the deep web where people do pay for info and steal your identity.But in the end, who cares. That theft is not “identity stealing” it is just your credit card being compromised. Happens all the time and the credit card companies are getting pretty good at catching it. Of course we end up paying for what they miss via their fees to vendors, but it’s a small price to pay verses using cash and catching a Corona virus. :W

RE: Basic questions about Class B's

Have any of you class B owners made the transition to a short class C? I have not and would not. You are comparing two completely different animals. As someone recently pointed out, it’s like comparing a sports car to an SUV. They both get you from here to there but serve different wants and needs. Also, I don’t think people purchase B’s using a price/space ratio. Dave

RE: What "NAME" can you call that Class B?

A class B. I'm not sure there is a "requirement" for a class B to have a generator. Heck, I bet there are plenty of Class B's running around with broken generators :C. In fact I use my generator more exercising it than I do generating needed electricity. I would be just as happy with a big enough inverter to run the microwave when we stop for lunch and skip the genset. Dave

RE: Leveling the B

1). There is a manual hard plastic fitting under the tire? I carry a set of these with me but I think I've only had to use them once in 3 years and that was in a friend's driveway. Having a B makes it easier to just move the coach until we are level. Dave

RE: Adj. water pressure regulators

We are "fill the tank and use the pump" people too. Back when we would live in the RV for months in one spot we used the city connection and a regulator but now it's more trouble than it's worth. But the OP asked about adjustable regulators and I was wondering why people would adjust their regulators and not just leave it set at say 50 psi. And if you don't adjust it why not use a fixed one? My fixed one served me for many years. Dave

RE: First Aid Kit Contents

When we lived on a boat I always had a first rate Aid Kit, but to be honest, my tool bag was probably way more comprehensive. Dave

RE: Parking RV at home

In addition, check with local ordinances or HMO rules (if applicable) This is why I don’t have an HMO or live in an HOA. Too many rules :B. Dave

RE: Where to RV on East Coast

I would suggest making use of to search for parks in the Poconos or maybe around the Delaware Water Gap which are less than 2 hours from you. You can easily check them out on that site for amenities and reviews. Dave
