  1. Melvin finds his own Castle

    I stayed at KOA/Encore park there a couple years ago. There is a nice bike/walking trail just outside the park, that I enjoyed walking my dog. Do stop and visit some of the shops in Matlacha, there was a little ice cream shop there that gave the dog a little ice cream cone. I enjoy reading your blog.
  2. Installing Base Plate-- About How Much & How Hard

    Go to the Blue Ox web site and click on baseplates then put in your area in FL. and it will give you places that do Blue Ox baseplates. I had mine installed in OH, and had a problem with mine on my way to FL one year and they referred me to Southeast Power Systems on Adamo Dr in Tampa They were able to fix the problem.
  3. San Juan Islands

    My daughter and son-in-law park there motorhome at Fidalgo Bay RV park, and they like that park. They have taken their toad on the ferry to the islands, but they also have a boat in Anacortes, and have stayed at a county park there with their RV.
  4. I have a 25 ft motorhome and tow my 2004 Honda CRV. I have the US Gear Unified braking system installed, and I've been very happy with it.
  5. Quality Maintenance Service

    If your in the Cincinnati, OH area I recommend Southwest RV Service, in Fairfield. That's where I take mine for service, I find them to do great service on my RV and they're honest and reasonably priced.
  6. Anyone Using "Car In Tow" Sign On Toad?

    Try "Two Crazy Ladies Badges" They do badges, signs and I think they do the magnetic signs. The phone number I have for them is 575-525-0141. I'm not sure if they spell it (Too or Two) but you can find them online.
  7. Could it be under a bed or cabinet? My water tank is under the dinette seat, and the pipes are below the floor level. When I bought this unit new in 2009, there was no valve there to empty the tank, but when I looked underneath the unit there was a pipe coming down under the water tank, but it was sealed. The dealer went in and fixed it. and made a stick that would reach way down there to turn the valve. You could also call Thor and see if they can help you.
  8. Buckled Flooring in Motor Home

    I have a Thor Four Winds Chateu, and the linoleum floor in my bathroom is buckling. I do have an extended warranty with Interstate, I'll have to give them a call and see if they cover it. I go to a local RV service place near me and I'm going to check with them to see what they suggest.
  9. Furniture Delaminating

    I believe you RV was made by Thor. I have a Four Winds Class C made by Thor, purchased new in 2009. Before the end of the first year, I noticed my drivers seat starting to peel. I was fortunate enough to catch it under warranty, so they replaced them. I had later read several complaints on other RV sites about other coaches made by Thor that were having the same problem that you are having. If you google "peeling leather seats in motorhomes" you can see some of the post.
  10. Travel To Grand Canyon from Ohio

    If your traveling with pets, you might want to take the toad. It will must likely we warm/hot weather, and you could leave the pets in an air conditioned RV, while you sightsee. As mentioned above when you get to the Grand Canyon you can only take the shuttle. You can use the toad to get to the canyon from where you are camped. Visiting other places you visit, parking the RV might be difficult.
  11. Glacier National Park

    I've been to Glacier NP 3 different times in a Class B RV, and traveling with a dog. I needed electric so I stayed in St. Mary's at the KOA. I don't usually stay at KOA's, but I was able to rent a car there to explore the park. At that time there sites where not very level and alot of the bigger units were up on alot of boards. There is another park there up on a hill, I don't remember the name of it. I then went back to Rte. 2 and headed to West Glacier. The entrance to the NP is closer to Rte.2 on the West side. There I would have liked to stay in the park at the Apgar campground, but I needed electric, so I stayed at the KOA there. It was a much nicer and very well maintaned KOA. Be sure to visit Many Glaciers and Swift Current areas of the park. Late in the afternoon lots of people gather at Swift Current to see the grizzlys roaming on the hill behind the store. I also really enjoyed seeing all the lodges. Have a great time and remember there is a length limit for your vehicle to drive the going to the sun road.
  12. Best Places To See Wild Life?

    There is a great private RV Park in West Yellowstone, It's Grizzly Rv Park. In Glacier NP I stay at the KOA in St. Marys and the KOA in West Glacier. The National Park campground at Swiftcurrent, near Many Glaciers Lodge is also a good place to see wild life.
  13. Best Places To See Wild Life?

    Yellowstone NP and Glacier NP.
  14. Class A Motorhome Resorts In Arizona

    Pueblo El Mirage, in El Mirage, west side of Phoenix. It is an excellent park with lots of activities and nice people.
  15. Michigan Campground

    We've stayed at Mackinaw Mill Creek Campground, in Mackinaw City a couple of years ago. We took the ferry over to Mackinaw for a day and then continued on to the UP. Sept. should be nice up there. Have a good trip.
