RE: Springfield, MA area campgrounds?

The Big E has trailer spots. Are these available for people who aren't attending an event there? Been to a bunch of events over the years, noticed some RV's scattered about, my guess they were for the events only. Not sure if they have hookups. The area it's self is not very attractive. Mike

RE: Thor Industries now has $14 billion in backlogged orders

Appears from the posts here, and my recent searching, that the further east you go, the more RVs are available for sale and the cheaper the prices. We headed west from Michigan. Bought in Omaha (long story not related to RV inventories) and saw plenty of RVs on lots out thru Utah, Nevada, Arizona and California, so I don't think it's how far east you are. This early spring we were searching for the 6yr 30' range MH's. At the time we were only intrested in Winnebago,Tiffin, Newmar..nothing in the NE area... with the exception of 1 newmar that was trashed on the inside that was sitting on the lot since last summer. Only a few over 35' Mike

RE: Thor Industries now has $14 billion in backlogged orders

Not disagreeing with any of the posts, we might still chance buying another Jayco (Thor) as we have had relatively good luck with the brand. Newmar was bought out by Winnebago, Thor owns Tiffin & Airstream Mike

RE: Thor Industries now has $14 billion in backlogged orders

Will be interesting to see in a year or so if the covid newbies go back to the cruise lines, hotel resorts and airlines. I'm looking for an Rv upgrade in the near future, hope to have some decent new or used inventory Mike

RE: Train vs Motorhome

Why is it that so many vehicles run fine until they get on tracks then decide to stall? Are the aliens playing games with us? Depending on the railroad crossing, it may be that it got high-pointed on the tracks, rather than having the engine stall. That's one possible explanation. There is one RR crossing where I grew up that I would never try to cross with a MH because of the very real possibility it could high point. Sharp rise to the tracks, on both sides. We have one of those near where we live, I go very very slowly over it, been good on not hearing anything dragging. Just today I saw a MH & toad pulled over after going over... I think he had bottomed out. Mike

RE: ANOTHER baseball question......

My guess would be if the ump assumes control of the ball for whatever reason time out would be automatically called. I'm no baseball expert. Mike

RE: Where is westernrvparkowner?

yeah I hope he is okay. Haven't seen him on the other forums either. Liked his insight from the owners point of view. Maybe he is too busy traveling and enjoying retirement. :C Mike

RE: Rhode Island trip

Any campground suggestions? With the short notice may be difficult to find a place, I hear this place is not to bad. Mike

RE: Rhode Island trip

Try booking Fishermen's Memorial State Park and Campground, down the road is the beaches in Narragansett. If you bring bikes, you can bike down the road to the ferry and take it over to scenic Block Island and bike the island, lots of touristy shops and restaurants to get a bite to eat. From the campground is easy Day trips to Newport Mansions and Mystic Seaport CT, about 40 minutes away. Check out USS NAUTILUS museum in New London, CT You can also drive & park at the ferry and rent bikes or Scooters at Block Island. Mike

RE: Walkens Glenn

If your looking for a clean no frills park, Clute Park may work. Watkins Glen / Corning KOA Resort lots of $$$ but a true resort Rv park if that is your thing. Check out all the falls around scenic Seneca Lake including the beer wine & cheese trails! :C Mike

RE: Cost of RVing

2020 we averaged $57 per night, I would consider that somewhat on the cheap side. Min $38 Max $88 Mike

RE: Heel spur surgery

Just a quick follow up, early January I decided to go with my 1st foot surgery, out 8 weeks from work with lots of staunch physical therapy. I am now back to walking 3 to 6 miles per day and about 90% recovered. Today just had surgery on my 2nd foot, I am expecting the same recovery. Mike

RE: Thought I killed my on board generator!

Which would have been tragic since it has now 9 whole hours on it and only been in my possession a week! Pulling maintenance on our new to us camper, I changed the genny oil and decided the 4 years of dust and the oil I spilled needed to go. Because a clean generator is a happy one right?? Plus I’m OCD about stuff like that. Gave it a once over since I’m not experienced with these built in Onans. Saw the control board front and center but it appeared to be sealed / potted in rubber. Litttle spray with cycle wash everywhere and some de greaser on the oil spill and then hosed er down. Miastake #1. Usually a run an engine while spraying/ cleaning it. Maybe a placebo maybe not. But I did not. Mistake #2. The cheapo sealing job on the control board was coming apart on the edges. Genny down for the count. Shorting out. Primer would go on by itself. Wouldn’t crank over . Blowing air into the board it was bubbling soap water out the other side. Pulled board out vacuum, compressed air etc. plugged back in temporarily. No go. A little fiddling revealed the outside start switch would work sort of if pressure held on. After doing that and getting it to start and heat up, problem is gone. I see a crack in the switch actually. So likely not all my issue with the water but nonetheless, a more important warning about the quality of the seal on the control board. Somewhat off topic. Remember in the days of my youth before LED & control boards, I would remove the casings of old window A/C units, chemical spray the coils and power wash the ENTIRE unit clean. Let it bone dry for a couple of days in the sun, plug in the A/C and would fire up better than ever. I don't think I would try that with today's appliances Mike

RE: Rv Park with Pine trees Adventure Bound Camping Resorts – Cape Cod, North Truro, MA Lots of pines at this campground and in this area of Cape Cod as North Truro is almost at the end point of Cape Cod, lots of wind & dunes make for an intresting geography. Just incase you venture out our way :C Mike

RE: Any runners around the campfire?

"Any runners around the campfire" how about walkers? I now have both knee and heel spurs, just finished with 1st foot surgery, 2nd planned in 2 weeks. I do a lot of walking with over a minimum of 3 miles per day. I have no choice to do it because I have thyroid disease. I've been Gluten free for 3 yrs just to keep my weight in check, eat 1 regular meal per day. My advice don't grow old ;) Mike
