RE: Suggestions please..new to this!

You need to look for a 3/4 ton used truck you will need it for a truck camper set up that you can live in for an extended time. Lance makes some of the best truck campers but they are more common on the west coast. You may be able to find a truck and camper already set up for sale. You will be challenged to stay in your budget for sure for a decent combination. Good luck.

RE: Southeast Ohio

The Hocking hills area would seem to be perfect for your trip and the towns you mentioned - plenty to see and do especially if you like nature and hiking. Also lots of places to choose from. We use the state park but pretty sure they don't have full hook-ups and limited large sites.

RE: Gatlinburg Campgrounds??

We use Twin Creeks, it is located with near the main park entrance and to down town. Plus on the free trolley route that goes to town and the craft loop. Also close to markets and restaurants. Wooded and has all the extras. Has some large sites not just a parking lot.

RE: New 2003 Trail-Lite

There is an R-Vision Forum you might want to try -http://r-visioncamping.org/, to find manuals and info on where to get parts. Had too Trail-Lites. Vents covers are standard RV stuff. The tank gauges are a problem and need you need to clean tanks regularly to keep them working. Might try putting a couple bags 0f ice in the tanks and drive around then dump and hose out good. I generally just go to Sam's and get a big 12 volt battery. Good luck with your new trailer.

RE: Moles

Unless you want to use poison pellets a dog or cat that goes after them is about the only thing that seems to keep them away. Traps are only marginally effective.

RE: Yellowstone, Badlands, Mt Rushmore? From Cincinnati

We lived in Rapid city for a few years. There is a lot to see and do in that area. Biggest storm we ever had was in late April. You'll probably want to stop at the Corn Palace in Mitchell nothing like it and also Wall drug near the Blakhills also worth a stop they both have RV parking. Badlands, a lot of people drive through and don't spend to much time there. Rushmore has RV parking and can be seen in a day, Crazy Horse is also a must see and the Buffalo heard is interesting. Not a fan of Deadwood kind of ruined by the casinos just a big touristy place but worth a stop. There is no easy way to get to Yellowstone really a long steep climb. We like the Tetons better than Yellowstone, less people and just as impressive. Jackson Hole is a touristy place to visit. You won't have any problem finding things to see and do.

RE: Does anyone tow with a Chevy Colorado?

I towed a 19' Trail cruiser for two years with a Colorado crewcab, twice over the Rockies and back not fast up long grades but always got there. The second generation Colorados have a bigger V6 rated at 300 HP tow ratibng over 7K, and a 6 sp tranny, also a diesel is offered. Some don't want a diesel dually since they want another vehicle to use for work and around town. As stated just match the TT to the vehicle.

RE: Using 12V while hooked up to the tow vehicle

For what it's worth info may have nothing to do with your situation - there is normaly a ciruit breaker of fuse breaker on the battery main line feed and and if it goes all the feed from the TT battery is lost. Some can be reset others need to be replaced. Only about $10, available at any Auto Parts Store. Normally located on frame near the battery case. If this thing trips or blows and your not on shore power (not sure about what would work if connected to the truck) you will have no 12 V power in TT. Easy to change.

RE: Does anyone else tow with a avalanche

Towed a 24' TT many miles with an 05 AV. Scale weight ready to go was just over 4600 lbs with only a little water. Went over the Rockies several times without issues. The 4sp is not a great trany for towing and reves would get up on the long steep grades and would have to use the truck lanes but always made it. Would recommend installing trans temp guage. There is or was a Av Towing forum that might provide more info.

RE: Looking at 2017 Silverado 1500, your opinion?

You will be surprised at how much difference the 6spd tranny makes with the 5.3 engine. Much easier going up and down grades in tow haul mode. End of the year is the time to buy to get a big discount.

RE: Somebody educate me on "Nitrogen" in the tires ?

Nitrogen is used in A/C tires and some race cars primarily because it is not flammable like the oxygen in air. It also has a slight advantage in stability/leakage expansion. It is pretty much a waste of money to use in RVs.

RE: quick question,

We went thru a week ago - southbound has construction not sure how long it will last last add an hour during busy times. We generally just avoid the right lane and usually don't have any big delays.

RE: Where to meet family between Colorado and North Carolina?

Traverse is a good place to visitand Door County WIs is also good. Smokies are really a great place with plenty to do for the kids. We use Twin Creeks in Gatlinburg nice scenic well run park near everything. All the extras with large sites and even a black bear or two.

RE: USAA Insurance

Had USAA for over fifty years, they are not the cheapest just the best. When our power went out for days and we were gone they credited our bank account for the food in the freezer the next day after I called based on our estimate. When my son wrecked his car they gave a low value but they said send if we could find local ads for same vehicle for more they would match them and they did. My other son's house burned and paid for living expenses for 4 months and repaired the house completely. When some Bozo rear ended us and the guy only had minimum coverage and collision had to pick up the rest they waived the $500 deductible on the rest and let us pick the repair place. Have other good examples -Never had a bad experience and always could talk to a supervisor if I asked.

RE: Costco Card @ SamsClub

You need a Sam's membership card to get in but they will take the Costco Visa card and it works at their gas also but at the regular price not the Sam's.

RE: Black Hills SD in october

Lived in Rapid City for a few years - Oct is a month that should be mild and better than the summer heat or winter cold but you could get about anything.
