RE: Weather in Yellowstone

Lots of snow possible through May...they don't shovel out campsites. We've been there mid May and still 2-3' of snow....Usually you have to go to lower elevation for camping like Jackson Hole or Teton Park

RE: Looking for actual weight of WW SL3005

empty weight will do you no good anyway. Empty weight is a basic shell without airconditioner, fridge and everything else added to it. Go with the max weight so you're safe in pulling in mountains and steep hills in campgrounds. If you can, hook up and take it to a scale so you know for sure what it weighs

RE: Has anyone been stopped by D.O.T.

Yes, we were at a state park in Missouri..Sunday, just outside the park, DOT was there weighing rigs...big problem was those with a 150 truck and pulling a 12,000-14,000 trailer. Mo plates are according to combined weight. truck & trailer, Plates are 12,000..18,000...24,000 & 30,000......anything over 18,000 plates must stop at a weigh station..(that was per Hwy patrol station in Lees Summit, MO)

RE: Ram 2500 Towing Help!

As long as you stay in the midwest...no Rocky mountains to climb, you should be ok. Is the 8500 lbs dry weight? Load the trailer with everything you will need, BBQ grill, tools, chairs, water in tank, clothes, food.. then take it to a weigh scale...that will give you a real weight.

RE: Best Alaska Travel Guide??

You might think the Milepost web site would be better but consider getting an internet signal when traveling. Signals are very scarce, especially in Canada & remote areas of Alaska. Nothing beats having a book to follow on your lap when traveling.

RE: Black tank back up....

Biggest mistake people make is never enough water in the black tank. There should be 2/3 water and 1/3 waste. Look how much water is used in a house when you flush...a tank full. You should let at least 2-3 gallons of water into the tank every time. Sometimes I dump a bag of ice cubes down the toilet before I leave a campsite....add lots of water and let the ice cubes bounce around and help break down waste build up...ice cubes melt and then easy to dump

RE: Black tank valve sticking

You have a handle attached to a rod that is fastened to a plate that slides back and forth over the opening.....The flat housing that the plate slides in and out of, drill a small hole in the middle of the flat plastic plate, screw in a grease jerk so when it starts sticking, shoot a little grease and it slides smoothly....

RE: Towing a boat

Also, check with your insurance carrier to see if they will cover a triple tow situation and what they require...they may not cover anything if an accident

RE: Branson to oklahoma city

Just take hwy 65 north to Springfield, get on the Interstate and head West right into OK...smooth, easy and no stress

RE: dump valve sticking

Your handle slides in and out of a square plastic piece...drill a small hole in the middle of the square housing...screw in a grease zerk so you can shoot grease into the housing....work it back and forth and if it starts sticking again, shoot some more grease

RE: towing a small boat behind travel trailer

Dbl tow is allowed in some states but only behind a motorhome or fifth wheel...never a travel trailer. First call should be to your insurance company to see if they will cover pulling behind a travel trailer.

RE: Toilet into black tank...not sure this looks right?

Had a friend who had same problem...Jayco Motorhome..toilet to black tank was not lined up..the lips was letting paper and other stuff pile up as he had to constantly spray the lip to get "stuff" to go down into tank The factory & dealership fixed the problem but took several months to get resolved.

RE: Whats a Reasonable Offer??

If a trailer is $50,000...the cost is about 1/2 ($25,000) So when they knock off $5,000....drop in bucket....Cut the price in half, add $5,000 - $10,000 for profit for dealer.

RE: Towing capacity

JUst because a sticker says the weight is 7500 lbs...isn't so. You need to take it someplace and have it weighed (especially with everything you normally take with you) You can easily add 1500-2000 lbs to a dry weight figure. There are grades in the Rockies that can really take a toll on going up as well as going back down. Never be marginal on tow capacity, go bigger so you can take on the mountain grades with ease or easier.

RE: CG Custer, SD

If you are going to be there soon, you may not find anything as the Stirgis Rally is going on for the next two weeks...everything sold out

RE: Brand new to rv

I don't know where you heard about a max of 20-22' for rv's. I would say the average length is 32-36'....with a max of 45'. We have a 36' and have had no problems in over 25 years of camping. I would say state parks have the smallest campsites but other than that many sites are 36-50 feet in length (full hookup or water/elec) Motorhomes, toy haulers, fifth wheels & travel trailers almost all average 24'- 40'...relax and enjoy camping.

RE: Anyone replace an AC unit themselves?

I used an extension ladder..one person on the roof pulling up with a rope, I was behind pushing and making sure it was centered on ladder. A little awkward but worked fine...threw the old one off the roof.
