RE: Campground Theft

Just as long as they don't take your beer! Had that happen. Camping at racing event in Iowa a few years ago. Local kids drove around campgrounds and stole dozens of coolers. Ours, as most others, had beer in them. Cops caught the kids and were kind enough to put all coolers in a room back at the station and kept them iced. We had to go "Identify" our cooler and contents the following day. From then on out we never have left coolers out when we stepped away from our site. Had a chair taken from our campsite another time and found it sitting all alone at a neighboring residence.

RE: The "Goodbye Room"

Sorry for your loss. It is never easy. Last fall our Greyhound (14 years old) had to be put down. Our vet as well has the Good Bye Room. When I brought our Greyhound in, there was a very young Vet Tech and Veterinarian, also on the quite young side. Both were very professional and compassionate. So much so that they both were crying along with me and I was even asked (by veterinarian) for a hug. While I was very sad to be putting our last Greyhound down, I was happy for the care and compassion I was given. I was allowed all the alone time I needed before leaving. And the Good Bye Room also has a private exit from the facility.

RE: Leveling Jacks pro & con

Our first Class C did not have them. Our second came with the Big Foot Jacks and I love them. Can't see having a MH without them now.

RE: Upper Peninsula

Our favorite campground is https://www.jackpinelodgeup.com/. Nice sites, not to cramped at all and good amenities. Great little bar/restaurant on site as well that does fantastic smoked bbq. And if ATV's / UTV's are your thing, Jack Pine has access to thousands of miles of trails. I also highly suggest a boat tour of Lake Superior!

RE: Keeping cool

Ran the Genny and Roof AC for the majority of our journey to and from Wisconsin and Maine. Kept the wife and sister inlaw cool and happy as well as allowing use of their chargers for phones and tablets. Usually not to adverse of an affect on the mileage that it bothers us as we'll also run them when we have our dogs with us.

RE: Blue Beacon Truck Wash

We use Blue Beacon for our Class C after long trips, though if we had one closer to our home I'd probably use them quite often. Of the times we've stopped for a wash they've done a good job and I was quite pleased with the results. Agree on above posters comments on the RainX option too, as we've done both with or without. With the RainX is worth the additional cost and rig is easier to clean/keep clean.

RE: Wife thinks I'm nuts...

Underside of hood is done at least once a year. As well as removing the wheel covers and washing the inside of those as well- so while I am at it then that is a good time to clean all the brake dust and gunk from the wheels. I've also been known to completely hand wash (bucket/rag) the interior too. Our rig also travels with a stocked container with wash, wax, towels, etc. The exterior will get at least on wax job every season. It's my way (not taking anything away from anyone else) of showing my appreciation and pride in owning our MH and the joy we have taking it out on our journeys. That's all the payback I need for doing those things. That and knowing how our dealer beamed in excitement when we traded our last unit in on how clean and well taken care of it was. DW and I feel we got a trade-in value well worth the extra time it takes to take care of what we have. What was even cooler was seeing people looking at our trade-in and inquiring on purchase while we were still at the dealership doing the paperwork on delivery for our new one! lol

RE: Road trip to Black Hill SD from Toledo Ohio

We did S.E. Wisconsin to Black Hills last summer. Was an amazing trip and I look forward to planning a return out there again. Of course, we had to do the obligatory stop at Wall Drug on the way. lol No need to do that again though.

RE: Washer dryer in a class c

Re-kindling this topic as the wife just recently brought up about adding a Washer Dryer Combo to out Class C. We DO have the Leprechaun 311FS and I have contacted Coachmen whom did reply back that all the provisions are in place to add. I will of course pull the panel to confirm. Also have to see how much effort and pain in the butt it will be to remove the door and casing to move a unit the area it's meant for. From what I read up on, these non-vented combo units use a lot of water per wash and dry cycle, so would for sure want to be at a full hookup site when doing multiple loads. Wouldn't be too big a of deal there for us and also know that we could get away with a load utilizing the fresh water and gray tank. She's pricing some units now, so we'll see if this proceeds.

RE: Wisconsin to Maine Trip/Travel Questions

Thank You all very much for the information! I'll continue to review this post as we get closer to our trip-- departing June 28th from S.E. Wisconsin. All of the posts with route information have been a great help and I will plan accordingly. Pending weather (storms) will dictate a bit of our itinerary-- but the plan is to run 'er about 8-9 hours drive time a day (two drivers) and be at our destination mid to late afternoon on the 30th. We'll dial all that in as we get closer to the trip though. We do have an I-Pass, knowing that it's a great time saver for us.

RE: Wisconsin to Maine Trip/Travel Questions

Great information and replies so far. I appreciate it all! You all are awesome. Any Rest Stops/Truck Stops/Travel Centers you prefer or stay away from? We'll probably stop at a few for a bit of sleep and of course some fueling up along the way.

Wisconsin to Maine Trip/Travel Questions

Planning a trip from S.E. Wisconsin to Abbot, Maine this summer with our Class C and 29' enclosed UTV trailer. Will have two drivers splitting drive time and plan is to make sleep stops on route (truck stops, rest areas where able, etc.). Trying to decide on which is our better route once we get to the I90/I80 split in Ohio. There really isn't that much difference time wise so the question would be which has less tolls, better road conditions, etc. On either choice, if you've done a similar route- what were good RV friendly fuel/eat/rest/sleep spots you remember? Anyone who has made a trek east, I'd appreciate your thoughts, input and suggestions. Thank You all in advance!
