    Maine Campground Recommendations

    We enjoyed Pumpkin Patch in Hermon, ME just on the edges of Bangor. It’s advantage is price. Yes, its about an hour from Bar Harbor and Arcadia NP. But its a very pleasant drive. Yes, it’s not on the coast but you pay for that privilege. If you look at the...

    MCD Shades up or down for travling

    Up, if I don’t, they end up up by the time I get where I need to be and not in a pretty fashion.

    Chips falling onto bed...

    Our 2017 Landmark did this to this day although it has slowed down. I’ve wondered just how much debris was left up there?

    Detergent Pods at Campground Laundromats

    We seldom used laundromats, as we have stackables in our rig but we did use them for the heavy bedding. One of the laundromats we used, said “Pods Only”.

    Suburban Furnace died (resolved)

    Actually you may have hit on it. Charles tried to kill the batteries this week. It was too late to do anything last night but we are off to Sam’s this morning to buy new ones. I’ll let you know if this resolves the issue.

    Suburban Furnace died (resolved)

    The only propane appliance besides the furnace is the water heater and we used it on propane this morning. We can also run our propane generator.

    Rv gps

    But are the apps required to work with them? We have a Garmin RV GPS, Lifetime updates and the ONLY time it got us in trouble was in NYS with the thruways. We emailed Garmin with the pertinent data to prove the issue. Photos from along the route as well as documentation from the parkway website...

    Reference the dishwasher and refrigerator. BTW, we are full timers. We haven’t ever winterized this rig in the almost 5 years we’ve owned it. We will be in Goshen for a week starting Sunday for repair at Affinity. Much of that time, the rig will be inside, only Sunday night will be outside. We...

    We got an Oxygentics. Love it. We got one with 7 settings, not one that looks like the d*8med banana.

    What is the “Basement” you guys keep referring to?

    The basement is the storage area under the rig. In our case, it’s under the bedroom of our fifth wheel.

    Need a new roof?

    We had to have our roof replaced due to an argument with with a tree a few years back. Had we known the cost of replacing the roof was comparable to replacing it with an RV Armor roof, we would have done that.

    Humana Advantage Plans

    Plan F is no longer available to new enrollees. If you had it already with no gap in coverage with it you can maintain it. I got in under the deadline the year I turned 65.

    Removing Shower Door

    BTW, yesterday I did was my liner and curtain cause the bottom was getting a touch moldy. Super easy. The washer did all the work. I don’t use the dryer, just hang up to dry. I toss a whitish towel in there a scrubby, add bleach.

    Tow vehicle options

    We have a 2015 F450 Long bed. We tow a Landmark Charleston. Total weight is 18,000 lbs but our truck can easily tow much more. We jokingly say we could tow a medium third world country. Whatever you get, do not trust the sales weasels at the dealership to tell you. Look it up for yourself. For...

    Frameless windows

    We don’t boondock. In over 4.5 years, we’ve done it one day. Having lived with the frameless that long, I wish to goodness we had large framed windows. This rig turns into an oven anytime it gets over 75 outside. Our next rig will have framed windows if at all possible.

    We are still retiring heating pads on the tanks (running the wires). Also replacing the coroplast and fiberglass that came out when we had to get into the underbelly to replace hydraulic hoses. We are replacing the coroplast not in one sheet but several so if one has to be removed, we don’t...

    Water tank sensors not working

    The fresh water tank is usually the most accurate. None of the others are. Stuff gets on the sensors and don’t come loose.

    Yes, they are called stress cracks and all manufacturers are prone to the (at least those with slides). They can be fixed. If you are diy talented, there are YouTubes to help. Otherwise get them fixed by a technicians. We have had three and getting a fourth one fixed this fall.

    Kitchen faucet leak

    We replumbed our 1910 house with PEX. Even to the kitchen faucet. Never had an issue. Even plumbers in our local big box stores used Pex, our plumber who came in to plumb the toilets and new shower pan used pex everywhere he could. So I’m not sure I understand your reasoning.
