RE: Where to for Thanksgiving?

Heading to Edisto Beach SP, SC and will be there from Wed - Mon. We did this two years ago and it was great. There is a local restaraunt that does a really good take-out Thanksgiving dinner that we pick up Wed and reheat on Thursday. We really didn't have high hopes for it last time but it was REALLY good. Turkey was nice and moist, not dried out. Each item is packaged separately with very specific reheating directions for each item. We do a get-together with our kids earlier in the month, even if we are in town. We started doing this to remove complications from their lives. It takes us out of the equation that day of figuring out where to go and who to invite. There is enough drama already.

RE: Theft at a State park.......

In SC the most popular thing stolen are bikes as they are very easy to steal and once stolen thief will not look suspicious riding a bike around.

RE: renting out your RV? Success stories? Issues?

If you are renting your RV to help pay for it or perhaps ease the cost pain of owning one perhaps you shouldn't have an RV in the 1st place. We bought ours to go explore and see things and not have to deal with hotels. We want to have our coffee freshly brewed right there and have breakfast without having to make ourselves presentable. Mainly, to have OUR stuff. Our beds, ours linens and so forth that only WE use. We don't want strangers using our stuff. Yeah, we still do big trips requiring hotels or AIRNBs. But we do a whole lot more long weekends with the RV than we would ever do if we were doing hotels. The build quality of RVs ain't that great. It shows wear and tear with just us using it. Imagine if strangers were using it. We take grandkids with us ONCE a year on a trip. My understanding, and I may be wrong, is that companies that do rentals buy special units that are designed specifically to be rentals and can handle the abuse a little better.

RE: More and more instant hot water systems

Hmmm, my hot water tank is at the front of the TT and the shower is at the back. So a lot of water is wasted while it travels from the front to the back waiting for the water to get hot. I like my 6 gallon tank though. Main heating is electric and when we do showers/ washing dishes we do the combo electric/gas and don't run out of hot water.

RE: Grand Canyon

If on the South Rim the Rim Trail is flat and paved. Easy walk. You can drive the Desert View road between the village and the Watch Tower and stop at the overlooks that are marked with signs. You park and none of them are much of a walk to the overlooks and they are all different and worth seeing.

RE: Cold in the bedroom.

We like the bedroom cooler. We put a little heater in the bathroom.

RE: Ordered new Goodyear Endurance & New GC battery install

When I bought mine from Amazon they were about 2 months old and were shipped directly from Goodyear itself in Goodyear, AZ.

RE: Not enough room

Another vote for researching ahead and using Google Maps/Earth. I try to combine planned fuel stops with food stops. Parking and eating can be just as hard as getting fuel.

RE: Winterizing tankless water heater

Furion website has a manual you can download.

RE: Early report: One dead in boating mishap Grand Canyon

Roughly 600 people die in boating accidents every year. 599 of them don’t get posted on RV dot net. Why this one? Yep, why? So far there have been 5 deaths in the Grand Canyon this year. It is the most dangerous National Park.

RE: Black water tank health concerns and questions

I am more concerned about sitting on the toilet that someone else sat on in public... Tis true, especially since guys in public restrooms have very bad aiming skills. Also have to worry about dropping your drawers on the ground while you sit due to the same bad aiming skills.

RE: Any idea where to find a hard-shell spare tire cover?

South Carolina weather did the same to my 2019 TT spare tire cover. I just went with a cheap no graphic replacement. If it last 3 years I will be happy and buy a new one once again.

RE: ATT and Galaxy Hot Spot issue

I get that occasionally. Usually just try a second time and it will work.

RE: Tires after over 2 years sitting

I have a horse trailer that mostly sits and does nothing. I try to take it out and drive down the interstate to get up to speed 4x a year for the sake of the tires.

RE: Jacking For Tire Change

Trailer Aide alone may not get the bad tire off the ground so you have to be prepared for that. I had to put aide on 2 boards once to get the bad tire high enough to change.

RE: Thor or Forest River - Warranty and reputation

When I picked up my new Forest River in 2018 I was told "you are going to have issues. Go on a couple trips, write them down, then bring it back to get fixed." After a couple trips I had 7 issues I had documented. All were fixed under warranty and none of the 7 issues have re-occurred. This was the basic warranty. I rarely do any extended warranties as I think they are a waste.

RE: Are RV sewer hose supports necessary?

I'll walk my slinky when done draining. Takes a whopping 10 seconds if even that. As long as the trailer discharge is a little higher that the sewer connection gravity will work, even if it has to go up a bit at the sewer. The initial gush of grey water should push what is left of the black water on thru. I have never had the experience of a sewer connection being higher than my camper. I once watched a guy spend 2 hours plus getting his slinky and supports PERFECT. No exaggeration. Maybe if I was staying somewhere LONG term, but he was only there for a couple days. Probably didn't use his tanks out all. I wonder how many people who use supports are trying to skip using their tanks.

RE: Eastbound

Dreher Island State Park is about 20 miles from Newberry. Popular park. They are currently upgrading one loop of campsites to FH. This puts you close to Columbia, SC as well. There is also a KOA in the area and some other commercial/private campgrounds that I have driven by but know nothing about.

RE: Lack of RV Parks... Jimmy Buffet to the rescue!

We just stayed at The Ridge RV Resort in Sevierville. Very nice place. We stayed in Bryson City at a campground that had good reviews, but it was really sketchy. It the only time I've carried a gun to the bath house. I will say it was probably a bad time to go, it was in February, and we had like 10 inches of rain while we were there, so it looked extra gloomy. We liked the quietness to Bryson, but did not see a good looking campground. So what was the campground you stayed in so I can avoid it?
