RE: Closed threads re web problems.

When I still occasionally had the problem after they "supposedly" fixed it, I noticed that many of the posts I was trying to see were multiple page posts. As suggested by others, I went into My Preferences and reduced my Post per Page from 20 to 10 and it seems to have fixed the problem for me. Your mileage may vary!!

RE: Camping around Christmas time

I would second the recommendation of Charleston. James Island County Park is very nice and they have the best Holiday Festival of Lights drive we have ever experienced and we have seen more than a few. However staying at James County Park Campground will be hard to reserve at this late date. I would recommend Oak Plantation Campground where we spent Christmas a couple of years ago and had a great time. Don't tarry as they fill up as well. You can still see the Holiday Festival of Lights drive with out staying at James Island but it will require a little patience for the drive as it is extremely popular.

RE: Places To dine

downhome, you mentioned Prescott in another post so don't know if this would apply but while in the Prescott area there is a small cafe down in Dewey just south of Prescott Valley that has very good food. It is the Blue Hills Cafe and offers all kinds of meals at great prices. We spent the summer in PV last year and enjoyed several meals at the Blue Hills.

RE: Recommendations for Receiving Mail while Full Timing?

I used USPS STORE. They provide a real address. Emphasis on the word 'store'. It is NOT the United postal service. I locate a 'USPS Store' where I am at and I sign up. Then I go to the official United Postal Service on line and click on forward my mail to that address. Post office forwarding is good for 4 months. If I stay longer than 4 months or move location you just go back and renew your forwarding to new USPS STORE where you are at. Lol I did this for over 6 years! :C I believe you mean UPS STORE not USPS STORE. USPS is the United States Parcel Service, in other words the post office. UPS is the United Parcel Service which has no association with the government.

RE: Recommendations for Receiving Mail while Full Timing?

A lot depends on what state you domicile in. If you retain a Florida address then it doesn't matter. If you want a mail service that gives you a Florida address for domicile purposes then you have more limited choices. There is Escapees, I think Passport America uses an outfit in Tampa and there is another on Green Cove Springs that a lot of people like. There maybe others that I don't know about.That would be St. Brendan's Isle. We have used them since 2006 and love them!!

RE: 50 amp coach on 30 amp power

Being Comanche, I'm just gonna strt a campfire in the middle of the front area. My people, the original full timers, have been doing that for generations. GM I have seen a towable with a potbelly stove installed. Your way may work but I think a chimney flue would control the smoke better than a blanket! :W

RE: 50 amp coach on 30 amp power

If you exceed the 30 amps the circuit breaker on the pedestal should pop and shut off power to the coach. If we are on a 30 amp site we switch the water heater to propane only, set the inverter/charger to only use 5 amps to charge the batteries, and set the reefer to propane only (if it's an absorption type). This will allow more power to be used on other items without popping the breaker on the pedestal. Our air conditioners are also heat pumps and we have found them to be the most efficient way to heat the unit as long as outside temps are above 40°. If below 40°, we use the furnace(s) which use very little electricity. Electric heaters are about the most inefficient way you can heat a coach.

RE: Printer

Like I said in an earlier reply, we carry a B&W laser and use it almost daily, going through a ream of paper about every three months. I print out every reservation we make as proof we have made it and the deposit we made if any. I also read our hometown paper every morning and print out four of the puzzles for me to work later in the day. There are also numerous other occasions we use the printer. Since it's also a scanner and copier, it also gets occasionally used for those purposes. I wouldn't be without it.

RE: Printer

We use a Brother 2700 All-In-One printer as we are in the coach 6 or 7 months a year. Earlier we used an HP ink jet but the cartridges constantly dried out with limited use. The B/W laser printer has worked flawlessly for several years now. Unless you plan on taking the printer into the house and using it there do not get an ink jet.

RE: Where is everyone getting their wiper blades?

Even though our coach came with 32" blades we have always replaced them with 28" Michelin blades from Walmart - much cheaper, clears the windshield very well, and less drag on the motor.

RE: Holster for .44 Ruger Super Blackhawk on fishign trip

Not the most practical but maybe a western style gun belt with the holster on it and not on your pants belt. My EDC is a mere 2 lbs. and I find myself hiking up my drawers frequently. Your shootin' iron is near the 3.5 lb range with 6 bullets in it. Western rig might be the way to go. That's the way I carry my Colt Python but with a 6" barrel it takes a long coat to conceal it!

RE: Grand Canyon 2020

You might want to have a look at our 2011 blog where we did much the same as you are planning though it may have been a little earlier than you - May. The south rim portion starts here and continues to the north rim, zion, bryce, Kodachrome SP, Capital Reef, and on up. You will get an idea of how long we spent at each stop. UT-12 is the only scenic highway in Utah and boy is it scenic. I promise no ads to contend with just reports and pictures of what we did.

RE: Tennessee To South Carolina

I-40 just inside NC (MM 1-15) has construction east and westbound that slows traffic substantially. Friends just came through and said it took over an hour to go that 15 miles!

RE: Quick reply please.

According to the Mountain Directory West that pass southbound entails a climb of about 7.5 miles of 9% grade and then the descent involves 2 miles of 6% then anther 3 miles of 7-8%. You must then head up and down Spring Creek Pass which is not as bad with a 2 mile climb of 6% followed by several short descents of 6-7% in a rolling hills fashion. I have driven our Phaeton all over the Rockies but would hesitate on this one myself, especially since the ride up to 50 is only an hour away. The ride up Slumgullion is long and steep and will require your coolant system to be in top notch condition. If your coach is in very good shape the ride down Slumgullion should be manageable in a very low gear and the occasional application of brakes.

RE: Thinking about a new Jeep tow vehicle...need your input...

I believe if you want an automatic transmission, you are limited to Cherokees, Grand Cherokees, and Wranglers - all must be 4x4 and have the correct transmission to tow four down..

RE: lobsters in Maine

When we visited Maine and wanted a "take-out" lobster, we found the grocery stores such as Hannaford or Shaws were the best deal. You buy the live lobster by the pound, they steam it and you take it to your rig and eat it. The DW loves lobster and this was her favorite source. She always got a two-pound lobster and enjoyed it very much.

RE: New York City

We spent a week at Liberty Harbor RV Park a few years ago and found it unequaled if you want to see NYC. Facilities are nothing to brag about but all we did was use it to park the coach and sleep - all daylight and evenings were spent in the city. No need to lug suitcases.
