Eastern Mass Fall Camping

DW and I very recently bought a new-to-us motorhome and have been out to state parks the last couple of weekends. We need to get out at least once more before the weather gets too cold.

Since we have to keep it in storage the easiest way to winterize it would be to spend a weekend at a campground with full hookups, so I can empty and flush the tanks at my leisure and then fill all the requisite bits of the plumbing with RV antifreeze.

Since we don't yet have a way to tow the car we drive separately, so I'd like to keep it close to the Boston area, South Shore preferably.

So does anybody have a recommendation of a nice campground that has full hookups to spend a weekend at that is in the area?

Thanks!

We just checked into Thousand Trails Gateway to Cape Cod. (Rochester) Plenty of sites open as we are at the end of their season. We bought a zone pass on Sept 16 and have already used it in 4 parks. Very good value for the$. In site C64.. stop by and I'll try to help or answer questions about TT. We are here for a week.

We've stayed at Wompatuck and love it, but in this particular instance I want a spot with full hookups.

af, there's a fairly large KOA in Middleboro, on Rt 44 about 3 miles east of I-495. They're open until Nov 15, and they have quite a few full hookup 50A sites.

FWIW if you get the rinsing and dumping done at the campground the filling might be easier at home. If you have not done it before with that unit I'd check to see that I had the tubing and fittings needed to suck out the antifreeze. YMMV ;-)

I can't do anything at home. We live in a condo and I doubt I could get the rig anywhere within a few blocks of home. The best I've done is the parking lot of the local Walmart. The MH lives at a storage facility about 25 minutes away.

Guess you are stuck then. The real point was to have any fittings and tubing you need.

On ours it's a 1/2 inch pipe thread fitting to the intake so I need a hose barb that size and a couple of feet of plastic tubing to fit the barb. I pull a plug so I need a couple of wrenches and I use a couple of short pieces of 4x4 to set the jugs on. On the old rig I set the jugs on a short step ladder as it was an outside fitting. Either way the second year I did it was hours faster than the first time because I had to round up the pieces. The HW tank plug is awkward to get to so a socket won't work. Yours is probably different but line up the pieces early. Use them late. ;-)
