Looks like you had a great time!

As far as the black tank vacuum breaker leak. We had 3 of them. Have the dealer replace the part with this part:

JR Products 571-VAC-CHK-A Vacuum Breaker/Check Valve

Instead of this:

We had 3 bad parts over the 2 years and finally replaced it with JR part and all has been well. Just thought I would pass it on.

Minor side note on this trip: Noticed more Jaycos in Maine percentage-wise than I usually do around home in central PA. The campground where we stayed was about 1/4 Jaycos, about 1/4 Dutchmen, and the rest were a wide variety. Around here I'm used to seeing no more than about 10% Jaycos.

One other thing I found interesting - there were a LOT of obvious rental Class C units in and out of the campground during the 8 days we were there. I just thought that was a little odd.

From what states? There are very few RV dealers in Maine;about ten and most sell RVs on the side. They are all small, no Camping World sizes and two of them are Jayco dealers. I got mine from is one of the biggest dealers and all they sell are K-Z and Jayco

Out west about half of all the RV's we saw were Class C rentals. I actually haven't seen many here. there is only one place that does that in Maine in Saco.

Of course for those living in MA this can be a viable option.

Alas, I wasn't paying close attention to the plates, so I don't know what states they were from.

Thanks for the feedback, Rob. Looks like a nice spot. I'll check it out closer on RVParkReviews.

Never paid attention to that Chewonki Campground at all. We are new to RVing and have camped on a Chewonki island further down the bay. Usually approached from Georgetown Island in kayaks

Anyway there is lots to do in the area. Reid State Park in Georgetown has a two mile beach as well as Popham Beach in Phippsburg

Bath has lots of interesting shopping and dining. Five Islands has a great view and lobster pound ( in Georgetown)

Maine Maritime Museum in Bath

Lots of local trails on local land trusts.

The Back River which the campground is on is quite beautiful. Again we never got out of our boats. We used to circumnavigate Westport Island

If you can stomach the brief but intense traffic jam in Wiscasset. Boothbay Harbor and some magnificient hiking at Oven Mouth is within half an hour.

( there is yet ANOTHER referendum for a proposed Wiscasset bypass this year)

Good Shaws supermarket in Bath for groceries. Nothing to speak of further up US 1

Chewonki has many sites with 15 amp.. But its very doubtful you will need your A/C ever. Goes past 80 degrees very seldom.
