Just returned from Maine...
 
...and amazing as it may seem, there's still some lobster left.

Seriously folks, had a great time with our first MAJOR outing with our Jay Feather 23RLSW. Confirmed that the black tank flush system leaks under the vanity, going in for service week of July 4, prior to our next outing. Also found a new loose threaded water fitting on the output side of the water pump (which we never use except during winterizing), but was able to get that tightened up myself - will have the dealer look at that, too.

And finally, the shower door is at least 1/4" out of plumb, and has ripped the seal off the base of the shower enclosure frame, so the dealer will look at that as well.

Anything to complain about? Nope, just minor stuff far as I'm concerned. We used pretty much everything at some point. Happy to be home after a little more than 1600 miles. I'll post some pix where people can get at 'em. And I'll have some comments on the campgrounds where we stayed.

Glad you enjoyed and didn't let the minor stuff get you ruffled.

Maine is Beautiful and fresh lobster is amazingly good. Especially sitting on a picnic table next to the water!

DW and I had lobster again on Wednesday evening, our last day in Maine. Check the pictures!

Just had some( lobster) tonight. at home

Going to Acadia next week hopefully before all of you come. Just kidding, we know where the quiet side of Acadia is..

Looks like you got ( finally) decent weather. It rained all April and was cold in May and will start raining again next week. Meanwhile we enjoy the six days of summer

Sounds like a great trip. We love Maine and will be heading up there for a few days in July. Thanks for leaving us some lobster :)

Would love to hear about some of the campgrounds up there in Maine. We'll be heading north in 2-3 weeks with no particular destination but I'd enjoy spending some time in Maine. Only placed we've camped there in Bailey's in Scarborough and I'd like to find something a bit less crowded. Thanks

We're heading up in August; staying at the Red Apple Campground just outside Kennebunkport. Never been there before (either the campground or Maine or that matter). This campground supposedly brings the lobster right to your site if you order it at the office before 9AM !

We really like Chewonki Campground in Wiscasset and will be spending a few days there again this year. Can't speak to the campgrounds further north/east yet as we haven't made it that far. We used to sail off the main coast, usually up to the Bar Harbor area and the area is absolutely beautiful, which is why we want to go back.

Well sitting here all you who go for the beaches go to an extension of Massachusetts.

If you want to see inland Maine and moose etc.. go north.. Jo Mary Campground accommodates RVs as well as Allagash Gateway campground

We'll be heading boondocking at a North Maine Woods campsite. They are scattered all over the state particularly in the northern half. No amenities.

We live across the lake from Kokatosi Campground. Family friendly on a small lake. Good fishing. Of course I have never camped there.

I had a heart attack when I looked at the KOA rates near Bar Harbor.. We are headed to Schoodic which is some 77 dollars cheaper a night. And has hookups.

If you don't need hookups, Cobscook Bay State Park has some of the most magnificient ocean front scenery .
Mountains and lakes? South Arm Campground on Richardson Lake

We stayed at Shore Hills Campground, outside Boothbay Harbor. What a delight! The sites are large, well spaced, and very level; the surface is fine gravel. The Class A area is open and has many pull-through sites, while the rest of the park is wooded and very pleasant. There are many waterfront sites, which we did not have. The park does not have a lot of recreational facilities - no pool or big playground for kids - but they do have a fairly inexpensive shuttle that will take you into Boothbay Harbor (note: it can be a real challenge to park in BB Harbor). Friendly staff, free WIFI and cable TV. We would love to go back.
