RE: West Yellowstone to Rapid City, advice please

You are welcome. Enjoy. If you have the time, go through the museum in Cody and eat dinner at the Irma Hotel. You will see the beautiful ornate bar that Buffalo Bill brought over from Europe. They also have nightly wild west shows in the street. We ate dinner first, then sat outside and watched the gun fight. It was very enjoyable. Parts of the museum were fascinating and others were not, so we saw what we wanted and skedaddled fast past the parts we didn't want to see.

Devil's Tower! And if you're going up and over the Bighorn's, Burgess Junction. It's at the top of the world. Well, almost.

RE: West Yellowstone to Rapid City, advice please

I would go straight east through the park stopping at Cody Same. You can take the interstate around from Cody, or over the Bighorn Mountains like we did one year.

RE: 1969 Hi Lo Bon Voyage 209 overhaul

Great pics and glad to hear you had a great time. I love the sound of rain on the top of the camper. One of the best things about being out there and like you said, no getting wet. We too have done the rain and tent thing and always had something wick the rain in.

RE: Montana vs. bighorn

We have a 2011 Bighorn. Bought it brand new August of 2010. We looked at Montanas at that time and found more features in the Bighorn,better floor plan in the length we wanted, king bed, extra Fantastic fan, larger fridge and water heater. The biggest thing for us was the dealership. The Bighorn was at a local, well established place, while the Montana was at a big box dealership. Bighorns are rated for full time, not sure of Montanas. In the 4 years we've had our Bighorn, we've had no issues other than a cabinet that came off the hinge. Our style of camping is boondocking and we've been on many FS roads, carefully, and we're very pleased with the quality. I would say the Montana is a fine unit, so it boils down to floor plan and price which is also what did it for us.

Love it. That's the way we like it.

RE: Using the oven while moving...

Another off topic reply on tow vehicles - when I was in junior high, I used to camp with a friend and her family - a widowed mother and brother. They had a Plymouth Fury and a 17' TT. This was back in the late 60's so you know that the TT was most likely heavy. Well, the mother would hook up that trailer herself and I remember some sort of bumper clamps in addition to the ball and hitch setup, but once we were on the road she had plenty of power up and over the mountains here in Idaho we would go to our camping spot by the lake.

RE: Tire info.

This just proves that there are many other factors in tire failure and it's not necessarily the brand or where it's manufactured. The Firestone tire failures and recalls years and years ago is still in everyone's mind and not forgotten. The mention of an ST tire sends people up in panic. I respect and will stick with the advice I've received from two RV tire experts I talk to - it's not the brand, where it's made, ST vs LT, but other factors. Now, I bet this will start another war here.

RE: Those with tire pressure monitoring systems..

I don't have the experience with 80 or 110 psi, but at 55 and 65 psi, seems like I see a 5 to 8 psi increase and up to about 10 degree increase. We have TST and with 80 PSI, see the same percentage of increase. Whatever the recommended PSI is COLD, the manufacturer allows for an increase when they are going down the road and warm up. It's safe.

RE: Jackknife with Hensley

Nothing is fool proof, nor will a great hitch save you in every situation! This guy may have had a great setup, but just the wrong time and circumstance. Amen!

RE: Where do your pets ride?

I would never leave my Pet in the 5th Wheel. IMHO, nothing living should ever be left in a 5th Wheel or a TT when traveling. I know this is off topic but in some states this is legal as long as there is radio communication between the passengers in the trailer and the cab. Now, if a dog or cat, can use a radio to communicate in this situation, they are pretty special!

RE: Where do your pets ride?

Our dogs ride in the back seat of the pickup with us. One in a crate strapped down (she's small) and the other loose. I know . . . I need to buy a seatbelt for her.

RE: Where do your pets ride?

Always in the 5th wheel. She hated the noise of the truck. Never a problem in a year and a half. How do you know?

RE: Tire info.

Definitely got your money's worth at 9 years and doubly blessed that the tire separation started but you caught it before it caused any problems. Our fifth wheel came standard with LR E 10 Ply and when we replaced them recently due to age and tire separation on one, that caused damage, it was replaced with the same. Never had to ask for them. We got a good warranty too. What we didn't know was the on the original, they had rubber valve stems. When the tire shop put on the new ones, they specifically put on metal valve stems. Glad you made a good decision and are sticking with it. It's your rig and making the best decision is important.

RE: Using the oven while moving...

Does anyone use their oven while towing? I'm not sure there is anything wrong with doing that, just wondering if I am missing something. The thermocouple will shut down the gas on the odd event the flame goes out, and there is no additional fire risk that I can think of. :S Surely ye jest? This post reminds me so much of the classic movie The Long, Long Trailer... I would highly recommend that you rent or buy the movie and watch it very closely! That's what I said!

RE: Jackknife with Hensley

earlier questions rephrased, and more questions: If the TV initiates a turn, even an abrupt one to avoid something for example, the Hensley is going to allow the rig to bend at the hitch like it is supposed to, right? If, during this swerve manouever, the TV piles on the brakes and the brake controller is any type that does not brake the trailer instantly, the trailer could push the Explorer around into a jackknife, could it not? A Hensley didn't help this guy either. $300 hitch with good safety chains OMG - it's a dually! High winds, high winds - no fix for that. We owned a Hensley, drove thousands of miles with it and it performed perfectly. DH was a good driver and we never encountered a situation such as any of these. Well, we did encounter high winds but we pulled over. Any number of things could've happened in both of these situations and I'm not going to speculate one way or another.

RE: Using the oven while moving...

Ok . . . just seeing this title reminds me of the Desi Arnez and Lucille Ball movie, "The Long, Long, Trailer"! Remember that scene that she decided to go in the trailer and fix him a gourmet meal in transit so that by the time they arrived it would be all ready? Well, we know how that turned out!

RE: TIRE TIME!

"If it's on the highway in the United States, there are a set of tests the manufacturer has to pass . . . as noted in this video That is the most boring video I have ever watched and I feel dumber now for having watched it. It says nothing. Not even interested in watching it, as it's probably gov't-made. Only about 1 step up from Chinese-made, IMO. :-) Lyle There goes ignorance again in assuming - you know what assume means right?

RE: 1969 Hi Lo Bon Voyage 209 overhaul

What is that line on the counter above your sink leading to the faucet? Don't tell me it's a cut line. I was thinking about turning the sink the other way, decided against it, it was just my first outline. Oh, good!

RE: TIRE TIME!

Oh brother. Talk about taking a turn for the worst on this post. Personal opinions do not have anything to do with the original intent of this posting.
