Judi, thanks for the parking tip, I will do that the first day. If you had not taken the trolly tour, was there any place to park an RV? I may need this for any additional days we stay there.

    We have been to Myrtle beach and north Myrtle beach many many times over the years. We like staying in North Myrtle beach at the Travel Park. It is close to a lot of the shopping and resturants and is on the ocean.  It does seem that when we stay in the north, we are running down to the south a lot and when we stay in the south, we are running up to the north end a lot. Since we think the Travel Park is the nices campground, we generaly stay there. We have not been to the Outer Banks in many years, so i can't be of much help there.

    On Saturday Nov. 20 we plan to head down to Savannah, Ga., spend a couple of days and then start back north, stopping along the way at different shore places. We have to be home on Sunday Nov. 28. We have never been to Savannah, so I am asking anyone that knows the area for hints on what to do and see this time of year. Friends of ours have suggested taking one or more of the tours and doing River street. They also said that Tybee Island's campground would be a nice place to stay. Resturants as well as places to see would be great.  I have never had Truducken and Thanksgiving is that week, so if you know of a place to get it, let me know. Please lay your suggestion on me.

    Depending on how long we spend in Savannah, the next stop might be Hilton Head, then Charleston, SC, and maybe our old favorite stop of North Myrtle Beach, if time permits.  Suggestions at these stops would be helpful also.

    We could spend the whole week in Savannah. Who knows how it will play out. The best part of owning a small Phoenix Cruiser 2350. Go anywhere, do any thing.

Ron, I totally agree with you about leaving the lights on is in the category of campground edicate. I will not ask that Kermit add barking dogs, loud music and generator noise or three times the amount of light that is already on most motorhomes.

Also I wonder about where you came up with putting a light by the propane tank? I was talking about a light that would light up the hookups. My Winniebago had one that was mounted high up on the side that lite up the hookups on the post and the area I was working in. If I am just stopping late at night, I do not hookup the sani-con or even open the compartment, which is where the light is hidden, but I do hookup the electric and the water. I try to do just the minium as to keep the noise down.

I am sorry but I would hate to see these on any camper, Motorhome or trailer. The large scare lights on some of the larger 5th wheels and campers are bad enough. When some people go to bed, they leave their lights on, with little reguard for where they are shinning or into the rig next to them. I have had to go to bed wishing the sun would come up and it would get darker in my motorhome. Sorry to disagree with you wanting all these lights. The new LED lights worry me as they are much brighter than the old bulbs. If you need more light in the evenings, you can always buy some patio lights or a rope light. Please unplug them when you go in for the night.

I am a country boy and the only light around here at night was made by God himself, the moon and stars. When I go camping I would prefer only his light.

What I would like to see is a light near the hookups that I can turn on from inside for when I am hooking/unhooking in the dark. It does not need to be a big brite light, just something so I can find the hookups.

DJM, the billy club/bat is used by hitting the top of the tire on the tread. You listen for the sound. If it is hollow sounding, the tire has air. If you hear a thud, the tire does not have air. I can use my knuckles to hit the tire and hear the sound. IMHO one must be very luckey to test it between when the tire is going low and the tire is flat.    I still knock them at each stop during my pre-departure walk around.

In the forty plus years of camping and four years selling RVs, I have only heard of one motorhome that had a flat and that was because he had 12 year old tires. The tire blew on him. He had checked the tires before starting out that day. The tread you see on the highways is from truck tires that have been retreaded and they can come apart under heavy loads and low presure. The tires today on these motorhomes are really very good. About the only way to hurt them is to run over something sharp and puncture it. Trailer tires are not quite as strong. Buses, the big desiel pusher motorhomes and some of the gas powered class A motorhomes with the 22.5 inch tires do not come from the manufacture with a spare tire.

When was the last time you heard of or had a tire problem?  thinking

I would suggest you call the factory and talk to Kermit about the effects of replaceing the carpet. He is very helpful about mods.

There is no rule saying that just because you have a slideout that you have to extend it.  Grin If the weather is real bad, we just leave it in. It is then just like not having a slideout.

My PC has the same as Ron. When I first got the PC, I sprayed them with Heavy duty silicone and it glue them together. I had to pull the screws through the wood to get the doors open. I called Carol at the factory and told her what I had done and she sent me some new latches. I promsied not to spray the new ones.  exactly!

Bill, we came back from Rocky Mountain NP/ Grand Lake, Co via I70 through the tunnel and through Denver on a Friday afternoon. The PC run in "D" the whole time and kept up with the traffic. Love this motorhome.

ragoodsp, Welcome and keep them coming. I wonder how far I am away from you (Maryland to NH) and if you would be interested in looking over my PC someday. In the mean time I guess I will just have to follow along here.  Wink

Our 2010 PC came with a Samsung DVD with surrond sound built in. I wanted a Blue ray DVD player, but Stuart could only find a Sony with the controls on the front with an up charge of $380. I did not want it that bad. The player needs to have the surrond sound built in to power the five speakers already in the rig and the controls need to be on the front in case you misplace the remote. Only a couple of player meet these requirements.

I would try to fix your current unit. You can always use my grandmothers way, give a good wack.  rolling on the floor

Ron, you missed the new state/location field that Aimee just added today. It is at the bottom of your profile and it displays in each reply. Really cool.  Wink

Thank you, I now have change my information and put in the new state field that Aimee just added.  ThankYou

 Ron, all that info you got is readly available, even in the phone book. Some of what you got was old info and is now incorrect, other is correct.  I am not to worried about the bad guys, as I just might have an alarm system, who knows, only the shadow knows.  Cheers Thank you for the information.

Why don't people fill in the location information in their profile?  shrug At the very least fill in the city and state. Sometimes the gender and age part could be helpful when replying to a question.
