RE: canyon de chelly

Since you are not pulling your TT you might consider going up to Chaco Canyon which IMHO is more impressive than the others and a lot less people.

RE: Red Squirrel or Chip Monk

What works for mice dosen't seem to work for Red Squirrels. They ate the injector wires off my truck, $1500 and chewed holes in our shed and I tried about everything. If I plugged the holes they just chewed another. I finally lined almost the whole inside with metal screeening. Things are very hard to shot with a pellet gun, live in town so a shotgun is out. I caught one in a live trap after much effort. The only thing that seems to keep them away is "Critter Ridder" I get at Tractor Supply. Have to reply often and can't be used on painted surfaces but does do the job.

RE: Knoxville Area - I-75

We also use Cove Lake State Park at exit 34 about 40 minutes north of Knox close to freeway and town of Lafolette and reasonable cost.

RE: Fishing in Yellowstone?

My biggest problem is trying to figure out where you can fish and what you could use at each place, lot of catch and release. One time went out on the big lake but never caught anything small!! enough we could keep.Last time we hired a boat in Grand Tetons and went Lake trout, fishing caught some nice fish the guide did all the work.

RE: air conditioner / honda 2000

I'v run a 13500 AC on my Honda 2000 on two different TTs and have never had it fail to run. Shut off all other draws and don't run more than an hour or so at a time.

RE: What do you put under your stabilizers and trailer tongue?

8"X8" square pieces cut from 3/4 inch rubber horse mats work great and don't slip or break. Use long strips for whell levelers.

We stayed at Liberty RV Park in Newark New Jersy years ago and took the ferry to the Statue which we walked to. The RV Parkwas not much but you coulssd see the Statue of Liberty from there and easy access to the ferry and getting to NY.

RE: Cascades, Crater Lake, Redwood National Park

In the Gorge we use Ainsworth State Park near Troutdale, does have FHUs and very scenic. Some large pull thrus. Near Falls, but a no reservation campground so get in early. Also like Memaloose State park near the Dalles, has a great location on the river some FHUs and will take reservations.

RE: Water in light fixture of new trailer.

I would check the A/C seal, water travels can end up in way away from actual leak. There are probably 4 bolts and a rubber seal that may not be seated or was not tight enough when installed. Don't over tighten will ruin the seal.

RE: Cincinnati Ohio - When is it usually safe to dewinterize?

I ggenerally dewinterize in early Apr in Dayton, then if its gets into low 20s I use a radiator type space heater. If you don't have a covered underbelly this might not be a good idea but have had 5 RVs and never had a freeze problem.

RE: Electrical Golf Cart -- Tax credit ??????

There was a tax rebate in the early 2000s for one year ($7500 as I remember). Had to be street legal and electric and meet some other requirements. I tried to get one but it was impossible due to demand all were snapped up before the deadline. Don't know if there is any rebates now. Had two electrics and now have a gas one. There are advantages abnd dis avantage to both. If I get another I'll go back to electric.

RE: Chaco Canyon & Culture Center

Would encourage you to take your TT into the Canyon. Spending a night or two next to the ruins is awesome and unlike anything we have done in 30 yrs of RVs. The road in is the worst washboard I ever drove on but you just have to go slow and easy. Its about 17 miles as I remember and it will take an hour but it's well worth the effort. There are no hook ups and only drinking water so you ahve to have enough water to get by. The camp ground is or was free. There were some prettty big rigs camped when we were there. Did have some things shake loose but I would do it again.

RE: How rough a road will you drive down for a place to camp

The ultimate washboard road test is into Chaco Canyon. Almost 20 miles of the worst road I've ever been on and I worked for the forest service for several years back when paved roads were the exception. We used the north road in and they said the southern route was even worse. I'm still finding things that shook loose. The place is amazing and we'll do it again if we can.

RE: Badlands, and wind cave S. Dakota that bad?

Lived in Rapid City for 4 yrs many years ago thanks to the USAF and did go to Wind Cave once and the Badlands many times. Have been back to the area quite a few times and never bothered with Wind Cave (too many more impressive caves around, but go back to the Badlands almost every time. If you like to hike there's some trails that take you where most people don't go. At least a drive through is required. Stop at Wall there's a decent campground easy to use within walking distance of the whole town. All tourist trap stuff but a little different than most and wortha Day. Can also do the Bravo Missile site tour if you're interested. So a day in the Bablands/Wall would be my recommendation, and pass on Wind Cave unless you really like caves. Deadwood is another place we don't go to anymore, was a nice little tourist town now a Casino place too many other worthwhile things to see in the area unless you like gambling.

RE: Plans for 2015 Mt. Rushmore Trip

If you decide to try Yellowstone from Rapid be aware the shortest route has a very long steep grade. First time we did it years ago had a 15 yr old MH with tow vehicle and we had to stop twice to cool off. Second time with a TT wasn't a big deal but still a long hard climb. Can go around and come in from the north which is a little easier.

RE: Northern CA and Southern Oregon Camping in April

Harris Beach St Park just over the CA/OR border is one of our favorites. It sits above the ocean and has some sites with great views and has an ocean beach. Some full service and some water/electric. Ought to be able to get a good site in April. Brookings is a nice little town and within easy drive to the CA redwoods. Weather can be almost anything that time of year.
