Fly fishing in Colorado question

Heading out to Gunnison, CO in August and will be doing some fly fishing. Anyone tell me about fishing license requirements? Are they pretty tight on monitoring for them? Can I get one at WalMart as I have done in other states? Thanks.

RE: What size of power drill for scissor jack socket?

Go to Harbor Frieght and buy one of their $19.95 3/8 drills. Also get a package with 1/4", 3/8". & 1/2" Adapters for $3.99. Keep your threaded rod on the stabilizers lubed with a dry lube, NOT grease, and you'll be a happy camper.

RE: New mattress

We replaced our short King mattress earlier this year. I did a lot of reading online and asked questions. I did not want to spend money on a mattress that I've never tried out, first. I went to my local Original Mattress Factory. Tried out various models, then chose one of their pillow top foam mattresses for $300. Its double sided so it can routinely be flipped. They made the mattress to my requested dimensions. Piece of cake.

RE: Tires - Load Range D vs E

If you installed "E" tires you could still inflate them based on the load they're carrying, not necessarily 80 PSI. It is a heavier tire and can handle more load, but should also last longer and provide that extra edge in tire safety. Regardless, I hope any tire you're installing on your TT are not China bombs. If so, cancel the tires and get a different ST tire, i.e. Maxxis. Also, be sure they get balanced.

New Forest River service policy for dealers

Just read an interesting article in an RV industry publication that all Forest River owners might find interesting. It's a policy they're implementing at all of their dealers that makes them more responsible for repairing a customer's RV. If you own a Forest River RV, it's a good read. The article is too long to cut and paste so here's the link: NEW FOREST RIVER SERVICE POLICY

RE: CK-4 oil

Just received from Amsoil my order of 5W40 Signature Series MaxDuty diesel oil. It happens to meet CK-4/CJ-4 specs. I checked the spec sheet, am I missing something?

RE: 5th wheel rollover accident

The Hitchhiker fiver looked impressive, especially after rolling on its side at 60 mph. The people were lucky to drive away.

RE: Quad LED lights-worth the added price?

They can provide much brighter light but the problem is the headlights need to be re-aligned or adjusted. If not performed, the lights really hit on combining drivers in the eyes. Quite annoying and dangerous.

RE: Park recommendations Maggie Vally? Banner Elk? Anywhere?

I'll second Creekwood Farms. One of our favorite places to stay, especially when backed into a creek site. Awesome motorcycle museum in town,too.

RE: Adjusting slide-out on Rockwood TT

Go to Lippert's website. They have manuals for their products including slides. There are instructions on how to adjust them which I've referred to when my slide needed adjusting. You'll need a large adjustable wrench, top. Good luck.

RE: Newbie question, should have asked this first.

I agree with Mr SabreCanuk. Check out the 377MB floor plan. It wasn't available when we purchased our Columbus, but if I had to get another fiver, that would be the one. BTW, my RV King bed is 72"x80", or 6'7" long.

RE: Explaining RVs/campers to people who just don't get it!

I have OCD, obsessive camping disorder. The OP is correct. When talking to someone who hasn't RV'd before, they look at me like, "I don't get it". When talking to someone at a CG, we relate much easier. I think it's a disease.

RE: Given your knowledge, would you do it again?

You don't have to explain or make excuses for wanting to go to an upgraded RV. We went from a Palomino Sabre that we really liked to a Palomino Columbus. The little extra bells and whistles are nice. i.e. Bigger shower, king bed, built in vacuum, fire place, etc. That being said, a nicer model does not mean less troubles. As mentioned, they are ALL built too quickly with too little QC along the way. Reviewing the RV brands should be step one, but just as important is choosing the right dealer, as they're the ones you'll be doing business with if/when you have a problem. I have a friend with a Trilogy fiver, he really likes it and has had little problems so far.

RE: Full Body Paint / Gel Coat Care

I have full body paint on my Columbus. I've been using Maguiar's cleaner wax with great success. It's 4 1/2 years old and stil looks new. My owner's manual says to use a quality automotive wax.

RE: 93 Bounder won't move when tranny is in drive position

Does it move if you place the shifter into Low? Or Reverse?

Chiropractic while on the road

I'll be retiring in 3 months and shortly there after, hitting the road for a month of travel. DW & I both see a chiropractor regularly and are wondering what our options are while on the road. Anyone experience this? If so, what options do you recommend?

RE: Help with tires

Maxxis M8008 ST tires. Proven to be a reliable trailer tire. Make sure they balance them, too. You really don't plan on driving 80 mph with your fiver in tow, do you?

RE: Dinghy tow a 2006 Lexus GX470

Your GX uses Toyota's VF4BM FULL time transfer case. Do not tow it 4 down even with the transfer case lever in Nuetral. You will damage the transfer case internals. If you must take it with you, get a car hauling trailer.
