I loved Hogans Heroes and never knew they did this. Thanks for the memories.

RE: Paying $20 to stay at Walmart –
Totally against that as:
(1) it negates much of the reason for stopping there. (No cost & convenient) Besides we usually spend far more than that on groceries when we do stop at a Walmart.
(2) Turns Walmart into an RV park? Which means – reservations & management issues. Such as – who do I contact if the electric is out? Can I call someone to complain about a neighbor making nose or being a slob? It means that Walmart has to assign someone to then manage paid stays. Who is tracking who should be there -or not? Means having employees walking the lot to see.

We use Walmart for quick overnight stays which are almost always convenient to major highways. We like that we can pull in – find a spot, check with mgmt, do some shopping, and then be gone on our way early next AM. We do not need any hookups – just a legal spot to park for the night. Have always greatly appreciated Walmart for allowing this.

Dealers can’t get RVs ??
Doesn’t seem that way in western South Dakota. The bigger dealers there have in the area of 100 or more and seemingly more coming in. That said the salesmen are confident in moving them.
We are enroute to Q. Should be at Nellis AFB Famcamp tomorrow evening.
Safe travels to all.

Need help finding an item. I am looking for hard plastic placards approx 3″x3″ or 4″x4″. One with some kind of electrical logo (lightning bolt, plug or switch), one with a plumbing logo (faucet, etc.) and one with a sewer logo (dump station logo or a toilet, etc.) I want to place these over my speedometer whenever I hook up that item. Then when I leave, no way I can forget to disconnect. We stayed at a friends before Thanksgiving. Only hooked up electric and we were only in the RV to sleep. I came close to forgetting to unplug. Luckily my friend reminded me before we got in for the last time, to drive off. Anyone know where I can order or find something like this?

Until you find something permanent, 3×5 index cards marked with a colored sharpie could fill in.

Here is what I use: Camco RV Steering Wheel Check Bands. They go around the steering wheel and you can’t miss them when you are ready to go.

when I’m all set to leave the campground startup the engine then get out and take one last walk around the motorhome also check that the site is clean or cleaner than when I pulled in. The trick is whenever you start the engine always do the walkaround even when you’re not leaving. Works great.

And a biggie, while doing the walk around have your lights on and your 4 ways flashing so you can check all your driving lights before you roll.
Safe travels to all.

Good point Dave, and I’ll add, have the co-pilot pump the brake pedal to check brake lights.

My co-pilot does the light check. : )

thanks all for the tips. I already have one of the plastic ones for the antenna. They’re designed to attach to the crank handle, but I find that gets in the way. So I lay it blocking the speedometer and has worked great for me. That’s why I thought of similar for the other items. But the steering wheel bands give a few extra. Normally I do a walk around. But in this one instance, parked in the driveway, I know in my head I was about to get in and drive off, but was lucky my friend mentioned it.

may not be wise to buy a new rv built in 2020 or 2021
