Not just RV dealers do this.
I was in a Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep dealer a while back getting my Jeep serviced when a family from out of state came into the waiting room. Seems their month old Ram truck had suffered a major brake problem on the front left wheel because somebody forgot to install or tighten one of the bolts holding the caliper and it swung into the wheel and locked up. No one was killed or injured, but their entire front wheel/tire/brake-assembly/shock absorber was ruined. Of course the dealer did not have all that stuff in the parts inventory, so they went out to the lot and pulled the parts off a new one on the lot to get the family back on the road home.
So how do parks and CGs know they are not bringing in infested wood to sell? Do they have entomologists or someone from an extension office checking? I believe only ash trees are the effected, but I'm not sure what type of wood they are selling at my local CG.
Firstly, the Emerald Ash Borer does NOT infest just Ash trees, although it seems to have a preference for them. It attacks all hardwoods, oaks, hickories, you name it.
And no, they don't have somebody to inspect a given load of firewood, they rely on quarantines. When EABs are reported in a county, that county goes on the list, and firewood suppliers/buyers are supposed to not ship wood from quarantined counties.
Here in Virginia, EAB is in the northern counties, up by DC, but not down here in south central Virginia. I am not looking forward to the spread of that pest to our area.
there are check valves in the water pump and it sounds like they have failed and are leaking. Dunno what pump you have, you might be able to replace just the check valves (one each, intake and output, but do both), or you might have to replace the entire pump.
There are lots of them. Stayed at a casino just west of Escanaba a couple years ago. Cheap, clean as a whistle, but clearly designed for folks who were there more to gamble than enjoy nature. Also stayed at a lovely county park on the lake shore in Wisconsin.
There are a ton of camp grounds in that area. Depends on what you like, though, as to what's good and what might be not-so-much.
We were on a trek to the left coast. Took Rt. 2 all the way to Seattle, so we were only in that area for two nights. But it is beautiful country with lots of camping opportunities.
I've got a relatively cheap one, as I recall it was about $40 from Radio Shack. It measures voltage up to 600 volts or so, amperages up to about 10, resistances up to a few meg or so. And even AC frequencies, as well as capacitances and a few things I don't know what they are for. It is great for checking CG power pedastals for voltage open or under load, circuit/device continuity, generator performance and frequency accuracy, electronic parts, etc. Very handy device.
Yellowstone is not a pet-friendly park because of both the wildlife and the unstable ground. In the thermal areas, you must stay on the trail, because off it you risk falling through a thin crust into a pot of boiling acid, not a good way to die. You also can't let your dogs encounter and possibly tangle sith the native critters, some of which will eat said dogs for lunch (no feeding the wildlife) and some of which you dogs will try to eat for lunch. So you can't let your dogs off leash anywhere. You also can't take the on any trails -- for both those reasons plus they will attract wildlife you don't really want to encounter, grizzlys and wolves and mountain lions.
If you have a hot water heater then I would think the air buble that sits on top of the H2O in that tank has been absorbed. You need to introduce air back into the HW tank. The air accomplishes 2 aims.
Absorbs thermal expansion of the water as it is heated thus minimizing pressure spikes.Introduces a short delay in pump cycles as the air will provide a push on faucet opening and the pump will run a bit past faucet closure to re-compress the air pocket.
That's my guess, too.
Drain the water heater, then refill. Should get you your bubble back.
Taurus' Judge and S&W's Governor make sense. The Judge is 5 shot, the Governor is 6 shot, both take 410 shotgun and 45 Long Colt, the Governor also takes 45 ACP. Given the snakes, 'Gators, and 'hogs hazards, I'd suggest a 410 with #9 as the first and last rounds, with either of the 45s in the middle on the theory that just in case you get surprised by a snake, you got what you need for a quick shot, the 45s will take care of the 'gators 'n' hogs 'h' dogs, and if they get through that wall of bullets, your last one being another 410 will be close enough (a foot or so??) that there won't be any spread until impact -- or to fill their hineys with motivation to keep on fleeing.
There are also a number of "self-defense" 410 rounds available that mix a number of #9 pellets with three bigger slugs. Just so you'll know.
Yeah, do let us know how it goes. Only problems I can see are extra weight, extra water usage, possible cracking due to the flexing of the trailer frame on big bumps.
Even though I dislike the toilet in my rig -- it flushes poorly -- I'm not likely to go that route, as the 15 gallon black tank on my TT would fill up rather quickly at 1.6 gallons per flush, not good for boon docking.
It was the Issak Walton that was $8/night. Are they membership? Why so cheap?
Dunno -- never been there, although I have driven past. And it is my understanding that Issak Walton does require a membership.
Either Paradise Lake or Issak Walton should be a doable cab ride. Walton is closer in distance, but Paradise is down a 60 mph highway. I recon which works better will depend on where the concert is.
Personally, I like the smartphone apps. I have an iPod Touch, and the same software runs on iPhone and iPad, and there are versions for Android, too. Allstays costs a couple bucks, Good Sams and Woodalls are free, all have maps. The Allstays has many more POIs and many more CGs, too, but is less specific on some details, such as price.
I haven't tried the online GS app. Thanks for the info about it.
