RE: Roaming RVers Feb 2020 rally Reed Bingham SP

Looks like I will be able to come down Sat afternoon for dinner. Getting excited to see my friends that I haven't seen in a while. I do have to help with activities in the park on Sat, but should be able to be there between four and five. I think I can make it on Friday too, so double excited.

RE: Roaming RVers Feb 2020 rally Reed Bingham SP

Hello everyone, Haven't been able to get together with you guys and not sure if I can make it or not to visit. I will be volunteering at GA Veterans State Park near Cordele, and would love to see you guys stop and say hello on your way down. Judy

RE: SPARE TIRE

As I am waiting tires to arrive prior to leaving out on a multi state trip, I am wondering if I should carry a spare. Dealer ordered tires nearly a month ago, as Michelin had to make new. If I get somewhere and have a blowout, will I be stuck forever waiting on a tire? Do I have a weird size (255/80R22.5), or did I just hit the market crazy? Dealer did say there were a few at one warehouse on East Coast, but not the six I need for full replacement.

RE: Push to privatize National Park Service campgrounds

I am concerned about privatization because when it doesn't work, it is horrible. A state park that I have frequented for years has had most of its operations privatized. They built a big lodge, restaurant and club that does draw in a fair number of visitors to a somewhat remote area, adding to the local economy. On the other hand, they have little concept of running a park/campground, except charing fees. The camping fees have increased, but the bathhouses have not been improved in years and are getting a bit worn. Because it is a state park, the campground checkin and maintenance is part of state park. They use volunteer campground hosts and maintenance hosts, but have not seen big increases from the increased rates, (high demand park and location). They have had their budget for staffing increased (and I know this because I just accepted a volunteer position to make up for for some staffing budget shortfalls they expect during the winter). I have worked for years for the federal government and understand the need for contractors/private vendors but also understand they contracts need to be written VERY carefully so that the mission of the agency is not lost in the process of meeting a budget.

RE: Mail Forwarding services

My traveling Mailbox is less than $200 for a year, I have only had mail sent to me three times since May.. Each time I had them send me things that had accumulated (that I wanted) plus what I was waiting specifically for. They scan what you request be scanned, and forward what you want at the speed/cost you choose. I have chosen 2nd day FEDEX for an envelope full at $8.99 each time. I love being able to manage it all on line... (UPS mailboxes didn't seem to give me that option)

RE: Mail Forwarding services

I use My Traveling Mailbox for a very similar reason. I wanted to keep my GA residency (and I have a physical address I can use, property that is currently my mom's that I will inherit one day) but wanted a mail service with a GA address because it was too much to explain to different states to people that I was changing my mail. So far I have had great service from them, but I did work to eliminate as much mail as possible.

RE: Dometic roof top ac unit

Just had my unit up front replaced. Tech said they don't have a port to add freon and that braising/soldering in a port requires torch within inches of foam insulation. He said he wouldn't take the risk of fire for any amount of money. It took him less than an hour to replace unit and I found several a dealers within a hundred miles (and I am in the middle of RV nowhere land -- only one dealer within 50 miles and most are 70-80 in opposite directions)

RE: Roaming Rvers McKinney Rally Sept. 13-15

I am going to try to join for Friday night, Saturday breakfast but need suggestions for hotel close by. I am situated in Plains Ga volunteering with NPS and will be "working" on Sunday. Too far for MH trip (especially since it would require traveling through Atlanta. I am open to hotel suggestions. Judy

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.

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 rally schedule for 2019

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.

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).
