RE: toilet smell after TT sitting

P-traps and the toilet bowl evaporate when sitting. More so in warm weather climates. Fill bathroom sink, kitchen sink and shower with water. And fill toilet bowl up to level. The smell is usually from the bathroom sink because many RV bathroom sinks dump directly into the black tank. But even the kitchen sink that dumps into the gray when the p-trap water evaporates the smell from a gray tank will smell the same as a black tank. Fill them all up and keep them filled and You will not have any more smell. X2 seen this fix many a odor problem

RE: Sewer smell in bathroom

Run water in all of your sinks and shower/tub. Water can evaporate out of the p traps letting odors back in. Gray tank odor can be just a foul as black tank.

RE: Hwy 7 Arkansas ?

We pulled a 26' trailer from Lake Catherine to Petit Jean, and all the way up to Harrison on Rt. 7 with no problems, but it does get a bit narrow in spots. If you have 10 days, branch out a bit and camp at Petit Jean, or consider Mount Magazine. Both are very nice SPs. Ponca has the big elk herd, and this time of year they're pretty vocal. When we were at Petit Jean SP the scenery was fantastic. EVERY fire pit in the area we were at was full of trash. And the connections were on the passenger side of the RV. With the campsites as dirty/trashy we did not want to even look at showers or bathrooms.

RE: Vacation Planning

Spend a night in Palo Duro Canyon State Park and take in the show TEXAS that runs Tuesdays through Sundays in the summer at the Pioneer Amphitheater in the park. The family-friendly show has singing, dancing, fireworks and lots of Texas humor! Then head to Southern Colorado. Take 16 west from I25 to Durango. Take the Durango Silverton Railroad and vist Mesa Verde National Park. Then jog down to the Grand Canyon. On the way back home stop in Tombstone AZ. Spend a night at Rusty"s RV Ranch in NM it is in dark sky country and your kids will see a night sky like they probably never have seen.

RE: Twist on waste valve?

I always dump black first then gray. That way the lines are flushed of black waste.

RE: Question on use of electric coffee maker in RV

There are two electric draws on most coffee makers one for the actual making of the coffee and a second for the warming plate to keep the coffee hot. Go with carafe style and do away with the warming plate. click

RE: Tell me about the Oregon Coast

Oceanside Beachfront RV Resort is one of our all time favorite places, no spot more than 5 minutes from a great beach. Beside the RV and tent sites they have safari tents and cabins and cottages.

RE: Nashville to Cave Creek AZ in Late December Route and Plan

Watch the weather and travel accordingly. If you want a route that has the lowest -probability of ice and snow would be go south to I-10 in Louisiana. Either monitor the weather or plan on a extra 400 miles and enjoy San Antonio.

RE: Colorado near Estes...what now?

Not wanting to be a downer just FYI when you get back have your brakes checked out as hot as you got them there probably is some damage done,glazed shoes and drums and possibly warped discs,and you probably will want to have the brake fluid flushed because you cooked the brake fluid also.

RE: Keeping Mice Out

Stuff any holes with steel wool. Mice and Rats can not chew through it. Growing up we used it in granaries to keep them out. If it can keep them our a granary it can keep them out of anything.

RE: Tow dolly for our MINI

There is no banjo chain what they are pointing to is the banjo for the safety chain. The banjo is the cut out that in the frame of the dolly that you put the safety chain through. Google banjo eyes for chains to see what they look like. FYI love our Acme. Hit a turnaround because of a road closure this year and even as tight as I had to turn no damage to dolly or car. Tracks great and the light weight makes it much easier to hand roll into the back of the RV spot at the campground.

RE: Diesel stations on Hwy 395 southbound from Reno, NV

There are many states where one should start looking to fill up when you get to a 1/2 a tank and Nevada is one of those.

RE: Finding gas stops - any tricks?

I go to Google Maps locate the area where I know I will be needing to fill up and search for service stations. Then I look at them in Satellite View to narrow my selections then finally in Street View. In street view I look at the orientation of the pumps and the approach in and out of the stations,if I see gouges in the entry and exit I keep looking. As far as "A truck driver pulling a 48' tanker manages to get fuel into those gas stations...you CAN DO IT." A: Some of us are pulling toads so to back up we have unhook or unload not fun. B: There is huge difference in the access in and out of the fuel islands than where the tanker truck goes to. C: Semis and tankers do have higher ground clearance so steep approaches and exits that they can handle can cause lots of problems for many RV D: I have seen some tankers having to back up in the service stations off of a busy street not something that I would like to do

RE: Oregon coast campgrounds

Not a State Park but one our favorite parks with great beach access is Oceanside Beachfront RV Resort, 90281 Cape Arago Hwy, Coos Bay, OR 97420. Not a camping park but is a great park to visit is Shore Acres. Harris Beach State Park is great but a bit of a hike to the beach. 90 miles north of Coos Bay is Beachside State Park great beach access.

RE: 2 weeks in Glacier August 2018

When we went we stayed at the East side KOA because they had a dog walking service where they would come to the RV during the day feed our dog and take hie for walks so we could take the all day Red Jammer Tour. The West side KOA did not have this service they had a business in the area that came and took your dog to there kennel.
