RE: Water hose storage??

I bought two 25ft Zero G-s in March. Only used one so far. I leave end attached to MH fresh water connection and then after draining all water possible put plug on the other end. with no water in it, it easily coils into compartment below connections. I had one of the blue ones from WM for years, but it was stiff if it was cold and I always ended up getting nasty trying to store it. So far the Zero G has solved that problem.

RE: blocks for leveling under jacks and tires

We full time and can't rely on cobbling together wood pads, so we bought these RoadWarrior Jack Pads. that is actually what I was wondering, as I will be fulltiming. Previously I have been lucky enough to be in fairly level sites, so haven't had to stack wood pads.. So are these things you recommend really $25 each? How many would you recommend? I do have four plastic jack pads.. but they are very thin and warp easily.

blocks for leveling under jacks and tires

I've been RVing a long while and primarily used "LEGOS" for under stabilizers in TT. Now have 38ft Class A weighing about 24K lbs and am unsure what to use under auto-leveling jack pads and under tires if they are leaving ground. Are the "LEGOS" strong enough? They are almost the same size as the jack pads (I do have large plastic landing pads for when on dirt or asphalt). What are recommended for under jacks to keep them from having to extend so far? If wood, what size boards? I prefer lighter weight or something that doesn't collect moisture and bugs so easily. I am trying to make a decision between weight and convenience and cost. They will have to be stored in the bins of the MH or inside toad car, as I do not have a truck or open storage for wet, nasty boards..

RE: MCCS Camp Pendleton

I am currently staying at MCCS on MCLB Albany. Much smaller base than Camp Pendleton. No particular different protocol from anywhere else. Except you are on base, so subject to vehicle inspection and security requirements of any Marine Base. You will be required to show ID each time you go through gate, and will likely have to get a temporary pass for Camp Pen. If you carry any type weapon, you need to register it (not sure how Camp Pen and California deal with that issue). My shotgun I had to know serial, model, purchase date and list a secure method of storing. I would check the Marine Base guide for the location to be sure. also check MCCS Camp Pendleton for details.

RE: Roaming RVers NOV 2019 AH Stephens St Park GA

Added to initial post, but added here to bring to top. I have had a change in schedule, and will not be able to make AH Stephens on Nov 8. I will however be at Florence Marina State Park on Nov 1 and would like to invite everyone to join in there. If someone wants to take over at AH Stephens that would be fine, I just can't make it. I created a post for Florence Marina weekend.

Florence Marina State Park, GA Nov 1-3 2019

I will be at Florence Marina State Park on November 1-3 (or 4). Asking Roaming RVer's and others to join me for this weekend, as I will not be able to host at AH Stephens the next. Florence Marina is on the Chattahoochee River below Columbus in a very rural area. If enough people are interested, we can book a boat tour of the river. In nearby Omaha, GA, there is a cool little craft brewery and tasting "room" that usually has food trucks and often music. Plan to check out Omaha Brewing Company. Providence Canyons State Recreation Area is nearby and November is a great time to visit the Canyons. Historic Eufaula, AL is less than 30 miles away and offers tours of historic homes. Columbus, GA is only slightly more than 30 miles away and offers a variety of restaurants, the National Infantry Museum (on Ft Benning) and the newly moved and re-opened Historic Westville, an 1850's restored village. I hope others can join me this weekend at Florence.

RE: Roaming RVers July 12-14 at Duckett Mill Campground

I won't make this as I will be starting my retirement by spending the first two weeks of July in NC near my daughter's new home. She is moving to Greensboro area and I will be there to celebrate retirement, Independence Day and my granddaughter's birthday, before taking our annual girl's trip to the beach (Myrtle Beach this year).

RE: Roaming RVers NOV 2019 AH Stephens St Park GA

Shutterbug, I chose site 24 because I was afraid whoever had site 11 would be trying to utilize the picnic shelter when our group might want to use it. Site 11 was my first choice. I was afraid that other sites near the pavillion wouldn't have a big enough "yard" for the group. I will likely change my reservation to 14 so I will be closer, now that I know it is part of our group that is so close to pavillion.

Customer Assistance for ONLINE Orders

Camping World ONLINE order department needs to seriously improve their Customer Assistance skills and processes. On March 19, I placed an on-line order for two items, early in the AM. I didn't mean to complete placing the order until I double checked something, but completed the purchase un-intentionally. I waited about 10-15 minutes for the customer service line to open, as you can't cancel an order on-line, you have to call. I called immediately and after repeatedly being told by rep that the order number I was giving him (from the email I had received) could not be an order number, I finally got him to pull up my order. He said my order was already sent to warehouse (less than 20 min after I hit button). He would have to have his boss contact the warehouse and see if they could stop it. I said that it was hard to believe it couldn't be stopped, but to please try and let me know. I never received another email, indicating that the merchandise had shipped or that the order had been cancelled. When I checked order status on-line it only said my order was being processed. 5 days later I called to check on my order and the person I talked to then, checked my order and was able to cancel it. Today, a full week after I first ordered and requested, I received and email saying a credit will be processed to my card within two to three days. The initial order amount was debited against my card almost immediately (within hours of initial order and cancellation) Changing or cancelling an order should NOT be that difficult and in todays digital marketplace, credits should not take over a week. Please look at these processes and consider some real changes.

Roaming RVers NOV 2019 AH Stephens St Park GA

*****I have had a change in schedule, and will not be able to make AH Stephens on Nov 8. I will however be at Florence Marina State Park on Nov 1 and would like to invite everyone to join in there. If someone wants to take over at AH Stephens that would be fine, I just can't make it. **** A H Stephens State Park is the park selected for November. All who are in the area are welcome to join us for a weekend of fun and food. I have made my reservation on site 24. There is a picnic pavilion we can use if we chose. There are only 25 RV sites, so recommend that all make their reservations in advance (remember GA only requires one night deposit). UGA is at home in Athens that weekend, so sites will likely fill quickly. I will update details when the time gets closer (and we know what time UGA is playing). From the park's website Conveniently located a few miles off of I-20, Visitors can enjoy geocaching, fishing and boating, while also learning about a key officer in the American Civil War. Named after the vice president of the Confederacy and governor of Georgia, A.H. Stephens State Park features a Confederate museum with one of the finest collections of Civil War artifacts in Georgia. Stephens’ home, Liberty Hall, is renovated to its 1875 style, fully furnished and open for tours.

RE: Roaming Rvers McKinney Rally Sept. 13-15

How do I get information on what Roaming Rvers is? I googled it and nothing but dog stories came up. It is a group of RVers in GA. We are an informal group with no "official membership". We camp together about 8 times a year and some weekends there are 8-10 RV's and sometimes only 3-4. Anyone is welcome to join us on our weekends. We each make our own reservations, have a couple of potluck meals together, sometimes we have specific plans but no participation is "required". We have played cards, watched UGA football, learned to make empanadas, picked strawberries... just whatever the location and season suggested and we decided to do. Check out this thread for our plans for 2019.

RE: Is Roadside assistance worth it?

I would say keeping a roadside assistance policy of some brand is imperative. Nice when my truck quit outside of a town I was visiting and I was on the side of a mountain and no clue who could come. Limited cell sevice so internet on phone wasn't working. I called and they found a tow company. Once they identified company, I was able to call and beg for a quick pickup. having someone do the work of calling tow companies and finding someone for me, was well worth the cost. Add in the tow was included in my plan, and it was double worth it. The single tow would have been more than the annual fee for my plan.

RE: Mobile, bounce-powered bucket washer

My son's Boy Scout troop did the five gallon bucket with the plunger when they camped at the National Jamboree. They were there for about two weeks and most did not have 14 Scout uniform shirts, so they washed. Had about 10-12 buckets to share between 40 boys

RE: Buy now and finance or wait and pay cash

remember if you buy at that price point now, it will be 6 years older when you retire, so you will likely have 10-12 year old motorhome starting off retirement. I bought about a year out from retirement, and was able to get one that was only 3 years old. I financed it, but will pay it off as I deal with retirement and house sell financial stuff. I used it during that year, and am working to finish moving in next week and do a few more customizations prior to retirement in the next 3 months.

Advanced Power Strips

Has anyone used the "advanced" power strips that cut power to devices reducing "phantom" draw automatically? Wondering if they would be useful in RV especially as I get ready to full-time. Don't plan to boondock much, but also prefer reducing power usage/battery depletion if possible. Power company for S&B sent an email ad with information/pricing on several advanced power strips. Information for least expensive at $22, says "This power strip not only safeguards your equipment from damaging power transients, it helps lower your electric bill. This 7 outlet model offers 2 always-on outlets for devices that you do not want turning off automatically, 1 master outlet, and 4 controlled outlets (controlled by the master outlet). The current-sensing master outlet has 3 selectable switching thresholds (10w, 22w or 42w) to sense when the control device is on or off, and it then switches the controlled outlets on or off accordingly to prevent unnecessary power use from devices plugged into those outlets, eliminating what are known as vampire loads." Here is the page from power company with various models.

If any members of this group are interested, PM me and I will arrange to get you some tickets.

So Magnusfide, what do you put the Sauce on? Sounds really interesting, but the only thing I can imagine it on is ice cream. Any other suggestions?

Sorry I didn't make this trip. Work became chaotic and getting away on Friday was impossible. Hope somebody made some pictures.
