RE: Bathroom and Kitchen grey water tank sensors

We always wipe the dishes with a used napkin or paper towel before washing, especially fry pans. No grease or coffee grounds went in our tanks. We do too, but food particles and residue can be on the eating and cooking utensils and a ground or two from the cup will always make its way into the tank.

RE: Idaho Falls to CO Springs via Yellowstone

There are several FS CG's on 189 just south of Jackson, before it turns into 191. You won't have any problems fitting in there with your Class B+ or C. Google Pinedale, WY campground and you'll see several come up.

RE: Bathroom and Kitchen grey water tank sensors

The gray water tanks can begin to stink if they are not completely emptied when you think they have been. How do I know? Experience. Occasionally I will use Elemonate - a gray water tank cleaner and deodorizer, but you need to start with an empty tank for it to work.

RE: Gros Ventre?

Sorry, Tara. I don't remember. If you don't get a reply here, contact the Gros Ventre at 1-800-628-9988. I did a quick google on this topic and didn't find anything specific, only on Tripadvisor.com stating the nearest showers are Colter Bay, and the restrooms at GV having toilets and sinks.

RE: Bird nest up on the side of King Pin!!!!

Two years ago we had them in our fifth wheel hitch,we were going camping on the weekend and this had been planned for weeks. When we were ready to hook up we could hear the baby birds crying for mama. I checked the hookup and it seemed that they would be safe if we hooked up. Long story/short we got to the camp ground only about 25 miles from home and they were still chirping away. an hour or so later Mama showed up and suddenly the little ones were jumping from the hitch to the ground and attempting to fly. Within an hour or so they were gone with Mama to who knows where. It has always made me wonder how Mama bird knew where her babies were, the only explanation is that she followed our Fifth Wheel for those 25 miles. Amazing story!

RE: Anyone use covers over there camper?

We're pulling the trigger and buying a new camper and want to keep it looking great. Do any of y'all use a camper cover and if so how do you like it and how long do they last? Thanks My friend used one in Ariz bought from camping world for about $500. Fortunately she bought the 2 yr. warranty for any possible tears etc. for about $100. After about 1 year she went back to get her money back. Their trailer torn a whole in the cover. Take a close look at any sharp areas on your rig. It was also a pain in the butt to install and took 4 people:( The RV was a 34' 5th. wheel. Same here, bought it from Camping World, it tore on a couple of corners and the tie down straps wore paint down on our fender skirts. It was very difficult to use, so we've gone the last five years without a cover and clean the roof twice a year and wash and wax the unit regularly.

RE: Bird nest up on the side of King Pin!!!!

OMG! I'll have to check ours. We've recently moved ours, but not in a couple of weeks and you just never know. Thanks for the heads up.

RE: Stove hood vent on the outside wall. Time for a new one

I know what you mean about it turning yellow. Ours is a sturdy one, but has yellowed, so I used a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser on it and it turned white again. So for us, no replacement, yet.

RE: Yellowstone / Teton Alternative Camping Recommendations

skipro3 - yes, Glacier's campground status pages are wonderful and we use them. It would be nice if all national parks had this feature.

RE: Yellowstone / Teton Alternative Camping Recommendations

Thank you, bjohns! Using Google Maps, I saw some units in there close to 50ft and around 35, estimating.

RE: Yellowstone / Teton Alternative Camping Recommendations

bjohns - thanks for the reminder on those campgrounds. We've driven through all of them, as we like to check them out for future stays. Lots of camping options. What I didn't realize is that Lizard Creek could fit some larger units. We'll have to keep that in mind for a future trip.

RE: Problems reducing pics using rvnet photo

Once upon a time, when one filled in both the height and width fields of the image tool http://i37.tinypic.com/a6175.jpg the display engine used only the value in the height field and adjusted the width to keep the picture in proportion. At some point, the display engine changed to use both height and width values, if both are present. Unless one does the calculations to keep the picture in proportion, the change will cause pictures to be out of proportion, when both values are entered. As an example, the normal mode for my main camera produces pictures that have a ratio of height to width of 2/3. The recommended height and width of 480 and 640 have a ratio of 3/4. In the past, if I entered 480 in the height field and 640 in he width field, the display engine ignored the 640 and produced a picture whose height was 480 and whose width was 720 to keep the picture in proportion Currently, under the same circumstances, if both fields are used, a 480 by 640 picture is displayed, which is out of proportion. The picture will appear to be stretched vertically. Put a value in only one field, usually the width field, and picture will be in proportion Tom Thank you! That's what I was trying to convey.

RE: Problems reducing pics using rvnet photo

I'm not sure what you mean exactly other than I too have noticed in the last year a change in how pictures are resized and uploaded and I use Photobucket. What I've been told and it works, is that the only field you need to fill in is the last one and enter 640. I used to enter in the boxes 480 x 640, but now I just fill in 640 and it works. Also depends on if you are using a PC or Mac. With my Mac, I don't have a problem, with a PC I do. I'm not sure if I was very helpful.

RE: Nervous..no, anxious about first long trip

What I have found is that for some reason I too am nervous about all this stuff before each trip. As long as I've left good instructions and have a good caretaker of the property, AKA son and daughter in law, they have our cell, we check email frequently, then I don't worry. I make a checklist of what to turn off, etc, for the trip, so that helps too. I also have the neighbors checking on things for us and leave them our son and daughter in law's number in case they notice something. Once you get on the road you will feel relaxed.

RE: Yellowstone / Teton Alternative Camping Recommendations

We've only driven through Signal Mountain CG, but it was beautiful. Your TC would fit easily.

RE: Yellowstone / Teton Alternative Camping Recommendations

Since you have a TC, coming from the Tetons to Yellowstone there is a CG, I don't remember the name soon after you get into the Park that would suit you, no big rigs. Also near Flagg Ranch there is some primitive spots along the river. In West I usually stay at Campfire Lodge and Resort, on the Madison. There are also some FS Cg's near by. Also in a pinch and depending where your heading there are several BLM CG's along the Madison. If you head toward Bozeman there a several FS CG's on that roadway. Narcodog, I'd forgotten. Lewis Lake is the CG you're talking about. I'd forgotten about Flagg Ranch, now called something else, but if you take Grassy Lake Rd, there are several free campgrounds, with pit toilets, along the Snake River. We drove back to check them out and had a picnic there, but our 5th couldn't get in and turned around if anyone else was there.

RE: Slide Maintenance

I would agree with mcrosa. As for the extended warranty, we purchased the Good Sam RV extended warranty and although we've had it for 2 years now, we've not had to use it and you pick and choose which package or packages you want for coverage, yes, slides and slide mechanisms are covered. For work, you have to contact GS first to approve it, but not a big deal in my opinion. We had a slide in a different trailer, that would not come out on one side, but it turned out to be a sheared pin that my husband fixed himself. As for maintenance, we regularly check the gear tracks underneath and treat them with slide out room lubricant. So far, we've been good and we have three slides, all hydraulic. So if anything went wrong, the extended warranty would cover it. Seems that even a local RV repair service that comes to your site, could diagnose this. Best of luck and keep us posted as to the result.

RE: Yellowstone / Teton Alternative Camping Recommendations

Having visited many times, Colter Bay RV and Colter Bay CG (the dry camping part), Grizzly RV, and Baker's Hole, are all great options. As far as Bakers Hole, it is our favorite - great spot even for big rigs. We've been fortunate enough to snag a spot driving straight in twice, another not. So, what we did, was stay over at Grizzly RV and early the next morning, we drove over to Baker's Hole, spoke to the hosts as far as which sites were coming open and then drove through and if a site didn't renew, we put our pay envelope on the site and paid for it, then after it cleared, we went back to Grizzly, hooked up and drove over to Baker's Hole. Any FS CG with first come first serve sites, we always stop and talk to the hosts first. It's the best lesson we've learned in getting a spot. Another spot we've stayed at is Red Rock RV - out by Henry's Lake. Super nice RV park. We've also stayed at the KOA West of West Yellowstone. A nice place, but spendier than Red Rock. Another couple of years, we stayed even further out off of the Togwotee Pass between Moose and Dubois, Wyoming at a FS CG called Falls. Two loops with lots of spacious sites for big rigs and one loop has electricity. Staying at either Henry's Lake, Red Rock, or at Falls means that you'll have a drive in, but if you don't mind, these campgrounds are worth it.

RE: 5er to class A or C

If you think towing a fifth wheel scares your wife try driving a 35'+ Class A rig with a toad in traffic. Perhaps a new wife would be less costly? JUST JOKING! Probably shouldn't suggest getting a new wife, she might agree. Actually we rented a large class A from a friend and took it out for a week in Upper Peninsula of Michigan. We really enjoyed it and DW enjoyed the whole trip until I forgot to lower the tv antenna and removed it on a low electric wire leaving the camp ground in Mackinaw City. That was in much younger days. I may rent a C for a few days and see how that goes before I sell truck and 5er. Hey mountainsam, it wasn't me that said that but afrescop
