    The Wingman is a rotating antenna, correct? If so, what keeps it from leaking into the coach?

    This is the 2nd MH we have had over the last 20 odd years with this OTA antenna. Have never had a leak. Not sure what type of sealing system they use, but it seems to work.

    We just had a blowout on our 2018 Fleetwood Discovery. We are at the Buffalo Valley Rest Stop near Cookville, TN. Not having much luck finding help to come and change the tire.. Is there anybody in this area who has suggestions?

    Thanks

    cogriffins, do you have roadside assistance?  Were they not able to assist?

    If you don't,  would suggest you get it. FMCA has a great deal at $69/year.


  3. Ours are mounted on the side walls just below the rear view mirrors.  I find they provide a better view than the mirrors as the totally eliminate all blind spots. 

    When changing lanes I always the camera view in conjunction with the mirrors, just to be sure. 


  4. Success! The cure for DB's Cabin Fever!

    Just got off the phone booking our site near Corpus Christi for next January and February. Pioneer RV Beach Resort. 

    Heard there is a FMCA rally in the works in Tucson so will likely head to Arizona come March.


  5. 3 was the magic number for us.  When our kids were younger we used to head out for vacations that we called the "Roller Coaster Tours".  

    Usually traveled for 3 weeks, took our 2 girls and a friend of theirs, headed for the closest Six Flag's park, many have campsites, bought a Six Flags season pass for all, a few days later moved on to the next state, next Six Flag park.  Repeated until time to head home. Usually hit 4 or 5 parks a trip.  Kids had a blast!

    Got our monies worth out of the season passes too! 


  6. Thanks everyone! Especially to Roland who stopped by yesterday, WOW, and Carl who has been to Pioneer RV Resort previously.  I'll be calling first thing on the 12th to reserve! 

    Bill, Lagoons looks nice, but its not close enough to the beach, according to the DW,,


  7. I plan our route mostly using Google maps, determining stops along the way by the distance we want to travel each day. Generally no more than 300 miles.

    Once I have determined the approximate area we want to stop in, I use RVParky or the KOA app to locate nearby campgrounds. 

    Sometimes i book campgrounds in advance, sometime the night before. If we are traveling thru a popular vacation area, I will book as far in advance as needed.


  8. Carl, I agree. Thanks for your thoughts on Pioneer, they pretty much match up what I have read from other's reviews.  Roland, yes, time is of the essence.  I called around over the weekend and many parks are either booked, filling up or just a few days away from taking reservations for next winter.  I checked with Pioneer and they told me to call back on March 12th and they would be "happy to make our reservation".  I hope this means that they have availability.  ☺️

     


  9. Thanks everyone for the recommendations and info on the Galveston area. All looks nice but I think we are going to go a little further south to the Corpus Christi area in search of slightly warmer weather. Me and the DW are partial to closer to 70 degrees.

    In my search for a gulf front spot to winter next January thru March, I came across the Pioneer RV Resort on Padre Island, Corpus Christi, just north of Mustang island. From the website, it looks really nice and is just steps from the beach. 

    Has anyone been there? Recommendations?
