RE: Camco water filter

Bought a Reliance Products Aqua-Tainer 7 Gallon Rigid Water Container that I fill with water from our house that is used for coffee, drinking and ice. Our trips are usually 4 nights so we don't ever use this much water. Once we dump at the dump station what is left of this water is poured into the toilet so it can slosh around in the black tank on the way home. We use to just use campground water until we stayed at a place in SW VA. I expected good water from the mountains. Nastiest water we had ever had ANYWHERE. The ice ruined sodas. Worse than water near the ocean.

RE: The Coronavirus

When it is your time to go it is your time to go. We were in DC the Spring after 911 with our 3 young boys. When we were there, there was a panic of a chemical attack on the subways. That was pretty much how we got everywhere, took the car out once the entire week. We decided to keep riding the subways. We figured if it was our time to go, oh well. If we cheated death by skipping the subways we figured God would get us back as we traveled home on I-95.

RE: Stabilizer Jacks

I have the 2608BSD. The jacks are great and easy to use. Just remember that they are for stabilization, not leveling. If you force them to try to level they will break and give you a new set of problems to deal with. Very good point. First time out I tried to level a little with stabilizers and couldn't open/close bathroom door. Lesson learned. Stabilize, not level.

RE: Traveling in a group— How do you handle it?

Google maps allows you to share your location with specific people. My son has used that to catch up with me. I also use it when travelling with Grand Kids so the parents know where we are and when we will arrive. I only turn it on for these specific situations. I hate to have people follow me. My son is the worse. He lags so far behind that it is a given that we will get separated by a traffic light. I also hate to follow my brother-in-law. He drives like a maniac and it is hard to keep up.

RE: Invalid VIN (Vehicle Identification Number)

My son, who was in GA at the time, had the FBI coming knocking on his door in regards to a murder in Buffalo, NY. There was a one character typo of the murder weapon serial number. That one little typo lead them to my son. They quickly figured it out. Interesting things can happen with typos.

RE: Campnab

My parents would like 9 hours with 7 kids to go to the beach camping and had no clue campsite wise what we would be getting. Always lucked out. I do recall one year a long line of people coming in. As one person checked out then one rolled on in. Would never do that myself. I have all my trips for 2020 already reserved.

RE: good Sam VS AARP.

In regards AARP discounts. I found I could get better deals on hotels and car rentals thru other means which did not cost me a membership. Not worth it in my opinion. In regards to Good Sam, was given a free membership when I bought trailer and have only used it when buying some things at CW. You can usually find better prices elsewhere.

RE: who uses Fog lights? / Hella 500 / OEM connector->F350

Both of my vehicles came with them, they are awesome when the fog is thick.

RE: What is the purpose of low point drains?

Before pulling out of a campsite I open up my low point drains and let them drain as I drive home. I drove for a couple hours once, stopped to get fuel, and was amazed as to how much water started coming out the drains as I fueled up. That stop was a good angle to get more water out.

RE: KM Reosrts

If you have asked them to put on their Do Not Call list and they keep calling, complain to the FCC. While they won't investigate individual complaints the data gets added to a database and if enough people complain they will do something about it. You can submit a complaint here:

RE: Is this forum going to get fixed???

I had a problem a couple weeks ago where I could not access several forums I monitor. If I signed out, I could access them. Signed in, nope. All are working now and I am signed in.

RE: Add to camping to do list...

No camping to-do lists! to-do lists are for work days and weekends in the garage. Camping is for getting away from all that. To-do: NOTHING! lol I agree. Make it up as you go.

RE: How cold can you go?

I camped in SC last January and it hit 18. I filled the fresh water tank the evening before and disconnected my hoses. No issues. I would think a heated camper would keep everything inside/underneath from freezing. The only issue we had was the grey water tank value froze up so I couldn't drain it the morning we left, black water was fine.

RE: Grand Canyon 2020

Been researching and am going to April 2021. From what I have researched the jest is if you only get to the Grand Canyon once, then go to the south rim. Also read that if you are willing to hike just 15-30 minutes that the people really thin out. For an April 2021 trip I will start planning and booking things Spring of 2020.

RE: Newbies

When the wife and I started looking we went to a CW just to look. All we wanted to do was look and get an idea of what we wanted. There was no pressure from the dealers. In fact, it was such a hot day they had no desire to go in the units, they left us alone to look. We then had a idea of what we wanted. Did a lot of research on line and narrowed it down to a couple different models. Went back to CW and said this is what we want to look at. Again, no pressure. We knew what we wanted to look at and they didn't try to steer us to something else. Worked for us.

RE: Southern destination w kids week of New years? Where to go?

Check this link out for Winter activities in Myrtle Beach. Myrtle Beach has become a all year place, but it will be too cold to swim.

RE: Southern destination w kids week of New years? Where to go?

Myrtle Beach is not totally dead and it is actually a good time to go.

RE: Black holding tank censors

My sensor was doing the same thing. I use Tank Busters. It is less than $10 for four packs. Filled tanks with it it, let it set overnight, drain, filled again, drained, sensor good again. I do this with grey, black and portable tank. Waste of money? Nah, 4 treatments for less than $10, worth it if it works.

RE: How many people have cameras on trailer

It is very nice to have when travelling down the road to see what is behind you and certainly aids when changing lanes. It is somewhat useful when backing up but I still require a spotter as I worry more about what is beside me in blind spots.

RE: New style entry steps

You have to make sure that they are level. When we first got our camper we didn't bother leveling them properly and they bent near where they are attached to camper, hinge area. The result was that when camping in order to close the door the step angle was horrible. Lesson learn. I was able to use a clamp and bend them back. While home just doing camper chores we use the fold out stairs at the bathroom entrance. For trips, I will use various blocks to make sure it is level and I can close the door, and not bend them again. And yes, there is a pile of dirt when you swing them in. I think I would prefer pull out on the main entrance. Haven't seen an easy way to switch to them. The bathroom door has something to mount them to, the main entrance does not.
