RE: VA to pigeon forge

I think after this location I would go 460 to Petersburg, north on I-95 to the bypass around Richmond then take I-64 over to I-81 and head South to exit 407, 66-441 into Pigeon Forge. I think this takes you right to your camp ground

RE: VA to pigeon forge

I go to Pigeon Forge a lot but where is Zuni, VA? 81 sure is no where near Richmond as someone suggests. But if you are going down I-81 just go to exit 407 (66-441) which takes you straight to Pigeon Forge. As far as getting from Zuni, its not even listed on the VA map so I couldn't help.

RE: Old Timer RVing

I am 82+ and still doing it. I also still drive my drag racing car. So far this year been to Bristol, TN, Baltimore area, and up along the Ohio river in WV. We live in central NC and have a DP. When towing the race car trailer we are 72ft long. I do have some arthritis, not bad, but otherwise the VA keeps me going.

RE: Selling an RV/payment

Sorry but I was taught by the other system, the banking system is a joke. Got people at the local level with holes in their shoes working with millions of$$$ And cash almost always works in my world. I did say "almost".

RE: Selling an RV/payment

As stated above, whole bunch of "experts" commenting on something they know nothing about. Cash is king and have you not heard of the under ground economy the government is trying to do away with that robs them of taxes and fees. You can use most of the methods mentioned above but cash is good everywhere and when its Sunday, the banks are closed, and a buyer is standing there with cash. I'll take the cash. Someone above said the title had to be notorized, maybe in NC but most states have done away with that nonsense. Don't make it complicated!

RE: It wouldn't go anymore

They came today and replaced the alternator but I am not home. I’ll go tomorrow and connect the batteries and give it a try. Should be ok.

RE: It wouldn't go anymore

That is an undeserved compliment. But thanks. It a good unit. Monaco. I do all I can but some things I wish I would have farmed out. And I try to stay ahead of things.

RE: Can't get key fob for a sprinter

We lost one of our Smart car (Mercedes product) keys a couple of years back and Mama went to the dealer and had another the same day.

RE: Quadrants, rather than one big cross country trip?

When youngest was 12 we left Baltimore with no special plans other than to get away from the Eastern US. Many side trips, Grand Canyon, 2 days skiing at Mt Hood, Yellowstone, etc. All the way to the west coast then went South, saw the BIG trees, LA area, over to AZ, Phoenix, Tucson, Bisbee, Tombstone, Nogales Mexico, Dallas, OK City, St Louis, Then beat feet for home. We were gone 2 1/2 months if not for school would have been gone longer. Lots of things and places not mentioned here but for her it was an adventure of a lifetime in the US. The next trip was straight up I-95 into Canada where we circled around and came back into the US in Michigan. As for the South East, we have wore it out over the years. We have had an RV for around 55 years and we used them all. There is always something up the road to see.

RE: It wouldn't go anymore

OK, Sat evening it was check batteries. The chassis one is about 24in long and 18in wide. It was less than a year old and ok as were both cables hooked to it. There are 3 more big 12 volt batteries hidden below that in a sliding tray. Here was a mess, cables carroded and 2 of the 3 batteries had failed to the point of leaking acid into the tray. What a mess. I removed the batteries and took baking soda to all of that mess in the tray. Used a stainless steal wire brush and cleaned all the cables and connections till they looked new. Last thing I did was paint the tray 2 coats of acid resistant paint. Early Sunday I headed to town, 25 miles, got 3 new batteries came home and installed everything back to the way its supposed to be. This morning they came and removed the alternator and I have yet to hear back from them. More later!

RE: It wouldn't go anymore

I have been told that I have done so much with so little for so long that I can now do almost anything with nothing. Life in an RV.

It wouldn't go anymore

Take off for Darlington, SC with race car in tow. Tach stops working, oh well, I keep going. Notice volt gauge isn't working right, keep going. About 1/2 way there I pull up to a stop light in the left turn lane the light turns green and my DP don't move. Motor is running, generator is running, we aren't moving. After awhile I figured that the alternator had stopped and the battery that supplied the juice for the transmission was dead. Now What? Middle of no where. I ran an extension cord from the nearest compartment, Generator is running, connected my maintainer up. Then I hooked a set of jumper cables from the house batteries to the chassis batteries. Viola, everything works so I get it out of the road. Taped the extension cord to the side of the bus, bunggy cord the battery compartment as near shut as I could and headed up the road. I mean Jed Clampet had nothing on me. So today I find 2 bad batteries and it goes in the morning for a alternator. Life in an RV

RE: Not a rant

Is there an app to fix my alternator for less than $1000? Thats a joke by the way, carry on.

RE: Best route to avoid mountains in WV

Oh my! At 82+ I am to old to spout history lessons as I was alive when the Federal-aid highway act of 1956 was signed by Eisenhower. It was also known as the National Interstate and Defense Highways act. I have rarely ever heard the term "freeway" used in the East. But we do have the Durham freeway--thats what it is called but most know it as 147, Daughter had to re learn the eastern language after having lived in Cal for 10 years. I have lived in 10 States, I think, and have been to all but one + lived for short periods in 23 countries. Hear in NC its hard to understand even if I have been here more than 15 years. 82 is a long time.

RE: Displaced Florida Snowbirds Room Here

I'll take the Florida weather instead of dealing with all that border drama. No thanks.

RE: Best route to avoid mountains in WV

66 to 81 will work, there is a short cut up there around Winchester that comes out in Hancock, MD I forget the number then take I-68 over to Morgantown, I 79 North to I-40 west into Ohio. One long up hill out of Cumberland and a long down hill at Coopers Rocks but thats it and they aren't bad. Once you cross over the river at Wheeling its pretty flat in Ohio and I 40 is about in the middle of the state. Stay clear of the PA pike. I been all over that area.

RE: Best route to avoid mountains in WV

Sorry about my misinterpretation of "Freeways" as here we commonly call these "interstate highways". Also I-77 in WV is partly a toll road. Anyway the OP has not told us where he is starting or where he is going yet.
