First timer

What's the flattest and least stressful route from Buffalo to Georgia. Am 70+ and am very apprehensive about attempting this. Was hoping to get some help from experienced RVers.

first timer

The freeways.
You can't avoid a few grades, but nothing nasty.
Happy Trails!

Was intrigued by the Georgia State Parks....but of course I wouldn't know which parks are best or which one we would be our destination.

For a first timer, I would avoid Atlanta. Taking 90 to 79 is a good start though.

If you've driven around Buffalo, Atlanta is no problem. Another route that is flatter is jumping to I-95 south of Washington DC and follow it to Florida.

Go to Flattest Route and it will give you the flattest route plus mileage.

You can handle it - just go do it! What is up and down except slowing down and speeding up a little as the grades change?

As CampDaven said, ALL the highways in the US are not nasty!

You can do it! Just go!

My friend and I just got into the RV living. He did not know to use rv toilet paper so our toiley is clogged. I was wondering if anyone knows a good solution to this problem. Tried boiling water haven't seen any progress, any suggestions would be great the just put us on 14hr days 7 days a week so we are limited on time. Thanks for the hekp

Stay on I-81 until south of Richmond, VA. Traffic is nasty on I-95 between DC and Richmond.

80hrworkweek--
Your question is buried in a post not related to your problem, so you may not get much help.
1) Does the liquid drain out? Or is the drain/valve completely plugged? If liquid is draining, I would bring a hose into the trailer and with your friends help to turn the water on/off, would direct a strong stream directly into the toilet opening.
2) Nothing comes out? May have to direct a hose back up into the drain line far as you can and try to wash out the clog.
No matter what, gonna be messy. Have a pan under the drain if you try the hose up the drain.
If you ever get it unclogged, be sure your friend--and you--know to keep black tank valve closed til it is close to full, then drain and flush it good. Also, check your type of toilet paper---good way to do this is to put some in a cup of water and see how long it takes to dissolve--longer times are bad. We use only Charmin Basic in out bathroom, and it seems to disperse very well.
Good luck.
Joe

If you actually put the hose down into the commode as far as you can, you can often force the clog out with the water at full pressure, but be sure not to do this for long as you will overflow the commode. And yes, the hose is junk after doing this and wear rubber gloves, etc.

If that doesn't work and you dump line does not too many bends, you can proceed in this way.

Attach your dump hose (pick up a cheapie because you are going to wreck the hose).
After it is attached, cut a slit just large enough to insert the end of a sewer tape and thread it up into the dump line. This will often work and the mess is minimized because you have a dump hose attached and routed into the sewer.

This second procedure will not work well, if you dump line is long and has many turns.
