We use the small crockpot, as well. Walmart had them on sale the Day After Thanksgiving last year for about $5 each. We bought 2--one for the house and one for the PC. They work out well for two people and it is small enough to store easily in the PC.

I always spray my crockpot with a light coating of Pam. There is hardly any cleanup.

Haven't tried the McCormick Stew seasoning mix. We use their crockpot pulled pork seasoning mix frequently.

We always take 81 to 84 on our way up to New England. We have no intention of going around Washington or through NJ/NY. Plus, being the frugal New Englander that I am, I would rather cross the Hudson at Beacon/Fishkill. Tolls are cheaper than either the TappanZee or George Washington Bridges and it keeps us off 95 (No tolls). We also make Promised Land State Park in PA. That will be our last stop 'til we hit MA and the sister's driveway for a few weeks.

Another nice place to stay in the Wild Duck campground in Scarborough ME. It's an Adult Campground; no kids. Very quiet. We are spending a week there prior to Blackwoods.

Then off to Orr's Island for the month of August. After that NH and Vermont. Planning to be back in FL mid to end Sept.

Any questions, PM us,

There are some tunnels that you might not be able to get through. George says that he saw a C at the top of Cadillac Mountain but I don't remember that. We had a B (Airstream Interstate Sprinter) which we drove to the top.

I would check their website so see. We will be towing our Honda Fit so we will be good.

There a great book called "Photograhers Guide to Acadia National Park" which Santa gave to George in his stocking. I (Santa) got it from Amazon for 1 cent and 3.99 shipping. It was used but you would never know it.

Where else are you going??

We were told by Diamond Shield to protect it with 303 Aerospace Protectant. After washing the coach, we put it on and then before each trip.

We have reservations at Blackwoods in July. We have never stayed there--we have always stayed at private campgrounds. I figure that it is like most National Park Campgrounds meaning no electricity, water but they do have a dump. $10 a night with the Senior Pass is a bargain. Actually, we may leave Blackwoods and go to Bar Harbor Campground if there is room. Bar Harbor Campground is no reservations but it does have amenities We have been to Acadia a few times but always in the summer when the shuttle buses, sponsored by L. L Bean, are running. I believe that they haved stopped for the season when you will be there. That being said, if you want to cruise around the area, I would sugges that you might want to rent a car.

Cadillac Mountain is beautiful as the sun rises; check out Jordan Pond and the restaurant there. Bar Harbor can be very busy (at least in the summer) but it may not be so busy when you are there. Also, check out the west side--Tremont, Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse, Somesville. In summer, it is the quiet side. There is a good seafood restaurant in Tremont--can't remember the name but Tremont is so small it might be the only one. All I remember that it is a yellow building.

We were wondering where you guys were---those tornadoes are scary. I would rather have a hurricane, at least you know they're coming. Stay safe.

We TOTALLY agree with Tom Hanlon!!! Our 1st PC did not have a slide (2350 Sprinter). The second (2551) did not have a slide; we opted for captains chairs. What a mistake looking back!! Our reasons for ordering without the slide was that we thought, erroniously, that the slide would add more weight therefore decreasing our fuel consumption. Minor!!

Now that we have our 2910 (with only 1 slide) we look back and say what fools we were. The slide adds so much more room and flexibility to the living area, it is easy to put in and out (press the button).

And the Euro chair is so comfortable!! Since you will be full timing, you might want to reconsider. To each his own!!! Take a good look at the area that you would gain with the slide.

Welcome Carol,

We had them build a floor to ceiling cabinet behind the driver's seat  in our 2910 and it works out perfectly. It's a great place to store camera, binoculars, scotch and other assorted small stuff. I really don't understand why PC doesn't build it for all their MH. Yeah, it adds $$$ but what a waste of good space without it!!! They initially told us they wouldn't do it because you would be unable to recline the driver's seat--how often do we recline the driver's seat?

Welcome and enjoy your PC

Welcome to the Forum. You will love your PC. We are on our 3rd and are ABSOLUTELY delighted that we found PC. We are heading out for 4 days (right now) to the east coast of FL and if June, we head out for 3 monthes.

This Forum has so much information. We are always learning something new. Celebrate Celebrate Celebrate

Great ideas--my mother has a larger pill case which would hold more spices. For me, the small pill case is too small. I love to cook so I bring what I need.

This year, I plan to bring a basil plant with me. We'll see how that works out. Since we are going to be at Orr's Island for a month, I can leave it on the picnic table.

We have reservations at Blackwoods Campground July 29 leaving on August 3rd. It looks like we might miss you.

If you tire of the National Park Campgrounds, I hear that the Bar Harbor Campground is nice. You can't make reservations and they only take cash/check but you get to choose your site, they have water, electric and a pool. We are thinking of staying a couple of nights at Blackwoods and then driving over to Bar Harbor Campground to see what they have available--if we lose $20/30 by leaving Blackwoods and going to Bar Harbor it is no biggy.

We then go to Orr's Island Campround for a month. We have never stayed in one place for a month before, so it will be interesting.

Hope we are able to see you and partake of that wind.

Holly and John,

All I can say is WOW--so much for Customer Service.

On RV.Net Forum, there is a place where you can Email Marcus Lemonis. Try that. Now I know why RV.Net Forum members say to stay away from Camping World's Service! He should be made aware. I agree with Barry---

You guys were terribly inconvenienced. Head South to warmer weather (although, it's 57 here now).

Let us know what happens

I keep buying stuff to take with us this summer. Publix Supermarkets in the South have Buy One Get One free every week. Crackers, Chips, Coffee (I have enough for this year and next) etc. Looks like all we will have to buy when we hit New England  is lobster, clams, good fresh corn and tomatoes!!   Heart Shower
