RE: Old Faithful?

Call them, you will have better luck, doesn't hurt to ask. Not sure they can accommodate a rig your size but I do know they have double sites where you unhook and pull your TV right next to your rig. I know the dates we were looking at on the website said that they were full, I called after someone here suggested I do so and sure enough not only did they have a site for me but the days too. The lady was really nice, nothing like Reserve America, this lady told me everything, even suggested what gate to come in at. good luck

RE: Sound but no picture on my DVD player

Update, sorry it took so to get back, but I took it back in to the shop since it was still under warranty, come to find out they had the cable in the wrong spot, he told me it was just like the one you have at home. They had the cable plugged in the video in instead of the video out. that's all it was geeesh! Thanks to all that responded.

RE: Honda generator 3000is Carb replacement

Ok, I put SeaFoam in it, at first it wouldn't hold a load but it did run. So I put a small load bathroom vent and some lights, I ran that till some of the hunting went away. Now after two hours I can put my A/C without any problems. Its running pretty good now, hunts a little now and then but its clearing up Thanks for the advice. I'm going to let it run a few hours. :)

RE: Trip Report: The Perfect Family Trip, Northwest 2016

Thanks guys. Regarding lunch. On this entire trip we ate out a total of ONCE (a Chinese place in Cody). We always pack picnics. It saves money, sure, but that's the third reason we do it. The first is that lunch becomes part of the park experience for us. The second is that it saves time. For instance, on the Northwest loop of Yellowstone, there is a fairly long unpaved road that you can take that meanders through the rolling hills. We drove until we were far from anyone and stopped there for lunch. I'll post those pics in the next section. Most of the time we have no trouble finding picnic tables. The main map for Yellowstone shows where you can find them. Once we waited about 15 min for one to become available. All other times, our truck tailgate is a great picnic spot. We can put it where we want it and it is always available! LOL We didn't do it on this trip, but on our last trip we brought the Coleman grill and grilled burgers and stuff while touring the parks. I would think that in the majority of parks (at least the ones we've been to), eating lunch at restaurants is either not an option or you pay dearly for the time it takes to leave the good stuff to find food. Hope that helps. Thanks so much for your quick response, can't wait to hear more and to see more pics. :)

RE: Trip Report: The Perfect Family Trip, Northwest 2016

Thank You for your trip report, we are headed up there next May and are really enjoying your trip! Looks as tho ya'll had a great time. I do have a question tho, you said that ya'll ate lunch while out touring the four loops as you put them. Did they have picnic tables along the side of the road where you could pull over and eat your lunch? Just curious thanks again for all your work you're doing, keep it going...

RE: Yellowstone Madison CG to Cody Day trip

There is a tunnel just West of Cody, at the Buffalo Bill Dam, but as I said, it's of no consequence, RV's of all sizes & descriptions use it all the time. http://images61.fotki.com/v249/photos/7/1474187/13835224/photo11-vi.jpg height=450 width=600 Ok great, thank you

RE: Yellowstone Madison CG to Cody Day trip

If you are doing a day trip, why are you pulling the TT? Without the TT, it's still a pretty long trip that will take most of the day. Leave very early in the morning, 6:00 am or so and go to Cody. Then, after you get done with your sightseeing in Cody, it's a long trip back and will take you three or so hours. So, plan on a full day away from camp, but it will be worth it to see the Buffalo Bill Museum and other things Cody has to offer. Well I was trying to decide if I could do it as a day trip first but it sounds as tho it would be a very long day so then I started contemplating on pulling my TT over and just staying a night there in Cody before starting back home. While researching on another site I came across someone talking about a tunnel and a very steep grade near the East gate. That's why I was asking, sorry if I confused anyone, I'm confused myself.

KOA's in General

Haven't stayed in too may KOA's actually the only one I can think of is the one that's in Townsend TN. We usually try to stay in State parks cause we like the nature part of them but we are planning our longest trip yet up to Yellowstone next May and will need some RV parks just for the night. I was wondering how your experience has been with them. I see that they can get pricey which is a downer but other than that they look decent. Can you elaborate on your experiences? Thank You

RE: Yellowstone Madison CG to Cody Day trip

As stated, it is doable but would be a very long day. Plan to leave Madison by 8am and leave Cody before it starts getting dark. This link gives an excellent description of all the roads leading into Yellowstone: http://www.rvtechmag.com/travel/4_yellowstonebyrv.php thanks for that site, Ill give it a good look

RE: Yellowstone Madison CG to Cody Day trip

Thanks guys, I'm just a little paranoid about pulling a TT up there. More so going down a steep grade than going up. I've been in the Smokies and I've smelt many of brakes getting hot. Not mine cause I don't pull my TT up there and when I did I always made sure I didn't have any steep roads in my plans. But it looks like I wont have a choice up there.

Yellowstone Madison CG to Cody Day trip

Honda generator 3000is Carb replacement

OK, I let my Honda generator 3000is set up for about a year and a half in a storage unit. I know, what was I thinking. Anyways a buddy of mine who is a good mechanic said he could clean the carb and it should be fine. He gave it back to me the other day and altho it runs it doesn't run right. I spoke to him and it sounded as tho he got in over his head and now I might need a new carb. He suggested to me that I get a rebuilt one put on it. My questions is, can any motorcycle shop do this or does it have to be one that works on Hondas generators. Has anyone here had theirs replaced with a new or rebuilt one. Just wondering how much its going to cost me. I called a local Honda dealership and was told just labor alone is 120.00 an hour with about two hours to put it on. That sounds a little fishy to me. Two hours?

RE: Durango Co to Tetons WY route

I have a small TT 23ft with a Ford 150 with a transmission cooler & tow package. It pulls fairly easy but I didn't realize the elevation was so high. I'm wondering if it would be passable at the end of May. Wow I might have to rethink my route. Thank you for your time. Its a wake up call for sure.

Durango Co to Tetons WY route

Looking for a good route pulling a TT from Durango to the Tetons. Can anyone suggest one? Also I would like to go through Silverton CO on the way if possible. Is that too much grade to pull a TT on Hwy 550 Million Dollar hwy? Thank You in advance
