I upgraded to Windows 10...Love it...easy to move from menu to menu... Windows 8.1 was a disaster...much better system

RE: Weight of 5th wheel hitches

That's like asking what does a 19 year old boy weigh? There are a wide variety of hitches from Reese to Trailer Saver...some are 150-200 lbs and my Trailer Saver is about 300 lbs Best way is to pick out the one you like and look up the weight. Always go bigger in hitch rating...If your trailer has a 2000 lb pin weight, get one rated for 2500 or more.

RE: Camping near mount rushmore

If you're planning on visiting in the next two weeks, the Sturgis motorcycle rally is going on...prices are greatly inflated and almost no spaces available....week of 24th August and beyond will be cheaper

RE: How much $$

Look into workamping....volunteer for 12-20 hrs a week for a free campsite and other perks...can save lots of money. Just consider you will always have a cell phone bill, health ins., vehicle ins., food, entertainment no matter where or what you do...

RE: Satellite with National Channels

I pay $5 a month extra for local channels where I'm parked. If I'm 300 miles from Denver, I'll still get Denver channels and if there are any closer channels.,...,you have a billing address and a service address...evry time you park for a period of time, you change the service address...you have to call DTV to have them turned on but I've been doing it for 10 years

Being strung along

We stopped in at the Rapid City CW to find a 15' 50amp extension cord. They were out so I received a rain check. This was July 1 as they had a supply truck in and it was suppose to be on it. Next week I called on the status and they were waiting on the supply truck again. No cord...Next week once again same routine as they had been waiting for the supply truck that got lost and sent product to another location....Once again, they promise to call me on status.. It looks like a large company has a real problem with customner service, follow up and stockage of product..I think each employee needs to order something and go though the same run around to see how it feels....never happen

RE: Wyoming HWY 22 from Wilson,Wy to Victor, Id

Not advised at all....10% grade up for 5 miles....10% grade down for 5 miles....transmission/.over heating/loss of power...not worth it. You can go around the Teton Pass to the South.

RE: Campsites on the way: St paul MN to Yellowstone

Not knowing how many miles you plan on traveling each day...go to www.rvparkreviews.com find a town 300-400-500 miles down the road and see what campgrounds are in that area.
JoeGood988 06/16/15 11:42am RV Parks, Campgrounds and Attractions

As we travel, I have the same questions...price, comments from users. But every time you plan on traveling, you never will get questions aswered....I always use www.rvparkreviews.com I can pull up a place like Jackson Hole...see what campgrounds are there and what the prices are...there are comments from people who have stayed there. I wouldn't stay in Jackson Hole as it is way too expensive. I would stay at an town 20 miles away and just drive in to shop and see the sights.

RE: 14" SNOW

Put the truck in 4WD and worked back and forth opening a parking spot before making it out on the street. Went downtown Wall and about a dozen cars. I'm sure I-90 is back open as it's melting fast...I feel for those trying to travel last night. We are parked in a private camping spot about 2 blocks from Drug Store.

14" SNOW

We are at Wall, SD....dumped 14" at one measurement but some other areas look deeper. We don't carry snowshovels anymore.

RE: Wheelchair in an RV?

Almost all fifth wheel trailers have steps inside. Bathroom doors are usually 24-30"...As gfar as I know, unless you order a custom unit, a class A motorhome is all on one level. You can order a chair lift on some models also.

RE: Denver to Rapid City, SD

Take I-25 North to I-80...go East into Nebraska..exit 59 (hwy 385) That hwy runs right into Rapid City...no mountains...nice easy drive. Once you're in South Dakota it turns into Hwy 79...

RE: Custer City, SD KOA Campground

Stay away in August as over a million motorcycles will invade the area. Prices skyrocket everywhere, 100 mile radius.

RE: Tax Exempt States for Full Time RVing

We retired out of Missouri and went to South Dakota, turned in titles, drivers licenses and became SD residents...no state income tax, no personal property tax, no sales tax...big savings. Every state has Federal taxes but the rest is a big savings. You can own property in as many states as you want to, as long as you live in each one less than 180 days a year. Full time RV'rs who travel all over can use this and claim almost any state as a state of residence..Florida, Montana, Texas, South Dakota, etc. Many states have rules that prevent you from claiming as a resident...have to check the laws. All of our retirement income and other monies go through SD so they don't take out state taxes. We have to return to SD every 5 years to have picture taken for drivers license but voting ballots are mailed to us every voting session. We are excluded from jury duty as we are too far away to attend

RE: 50 amp to 30 amp

Many places sell a 50 to 30 amp reducer. All it means is that you can't run as many things with 30 amp as you can 50 amp...like air conditioners, microwave, toaster & hair dryer at the same time.
