    Seeking recommendations: Maine

    We're hoping to take our RV from Chicago to the northeast and tour the seaside towns in Maine. Anticipating 3-ish weeks (late July through mid-August) if we can swing the camping spots. Any suggestions of sites to see or campgrounds from which we can explore the area? Also, any route...

    What Make/Model/Floorplan has room while driving? GAS

    Agree with @HappyWanderer. We recently took delivery of a new Entegra Emblem (36H). I too am 6'3" and am able to maneuver well enough when the slides are fully retracted. It's definitely side-stepping but easy enough to get to the kitchen, bathroom, and back bedroom. It has a good floor plan...

    New to the RV world — lots of questions

    Newbie here too... Love the look of your new TT! Lots of great advice above, but here's what I've learned after our first week with the RV bringing it back to Chicago from Fort Myers, FL: Bins... bins... bins... Any cabinet where items can slide around, throw them in a bin and you're all set...

    2021 Entegra Emblem - TV and Black/Gray Draining Questions

    Thanks for all of the help! I've figured out the tanks... and, yes, there is a second gray tank for the washing machine (Thanks, @HappyWanderer; and my wife thanks you as well as I got a load of laundry done testing this out!). Cable is still a mystery. Original owner here. I did verify there...

    2021 Entegra Emblem - TV and Black/Gray Draining Questions

    We have the 36H. Pictures attached. The one with the orange hose shows the left-hand compartment. The extended lever must be gray tank b/c we've been showering and the tank monitors show 0% for gray tank #1. The lever traces to the passenger side of the coach. Doing the black tank wash plus...

    Newbie here... first week with our new RV and have two topics that I need help with. FIRST - TV Cable Hookup I'm trying to get cable TV to work. We've been watching TV via antenna, but the campground does have cable TV at the post. I've confirmed that there is a good signal at the post...

    Is a "King" truly a King sized bed in an RV?

    Thank you! Agree that the responses all seem to indicate that the RV King is not quite but close to normal house kings.

    Is a "King" truly a King sized bed in an RV?

    Heading to FL to pick up our new RV in a week, and we're trying to get everything ready so that we can hit the road for a week during spring break. One thing we need to get are sheets, and the RV is spec'd to have a king-sized master bed and a queen-sized overhead bunk. We're trying to figure...

    Recommendations near Mt. Rushmore

    We visited the Custer / Keystone, SD area many years ago and loved it. Now we want to take our youngest there (original trip was before her time) on an RV trip and was hoping for recommendations on campgrounds. We will soon have a 38' motorhome and looking for great campgrounds with shade...

    Class A Storage Recommendations - Northern IL or Southern WI?

    Does anyone have recommendations on where I can store a class A 38' motorhome that we'll be picking up in a few weeks? We're in the far NW suburbs of Chicago, so anything north / northwest of Chicago through southeast WI would work well. Preferences would be covered then indoor then outdoor...

    Motorhome towing questions from a newbie

    I took my Wrangler to the Cat scales the other day. It came in at 5,300 lbs. I deducted 200 lbs for my fat butt, hard top plus roof rack estimating at another 100 lbs (we'll have soft top when trailering), and then all of my easily removable gear are easily 100 lbs (stuffed to the gills). So...

    Motorhome towing questions from a newbie

    Thanks, Isaac! Great information! I have a 2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited (JKU). I'm assuming the dealer should be able to wire in what is needed...? Or is there a better alternative? We're going to be keeping this Jeep for many, many years / miles (only 50K on it now and have customized the-heck...

    Motorhome towing questions from a newbie

    Thanks for all the great feedback. You are right about my math above. GVW should not include the toad. As you all have mentioned, we're pushing the limits and things change both with altitude and slope. Driving through the mountains will be a stretch with the Jeep connected. Probably a good...

    Motorhome towing questions from a newbie

    First post here! I'm hoping to get some experienced RV'ers help here. Brand new to the lifestyle... well, almost. Wife, daughter, and I have our eyes on a new Entegra Emblem 36H (gas) and want to flat tow our 4,900 lb Jeep Wrangler. Here are the specs that I have... the question is "Am I asking...
