RE: Chaco Canyon

We were there 3 yrs ago and the road in from the north was the worst wash board I ever drove on and I used to work for the Forest Service. They said the southern route in was even worse. Aparently the park doesn't do the road maintenance. Just have to go slow and make sure everything is secure inside your RV. Worth the trip and IMHO better thean Mesa Verde , Canyon DeChelley and the others we have visited since it is more pristine, has not been restored and fewer people. When the sun goes down in the Canyon and you are so close to the ruins it is just awesome.

RE: Finally! Some long term reliability data!

Interesting info but could not find out where and from whom they got their data. From years working A/C defieciency reporting I know not all defects are the same. Some vehicles are just more complex, especially now with all the sophisticated electronics, especially new models just introduced.

RE: New to RV'ing

Good thing your willing to do some of your own fixing it's something that comes in handy. There is an R-Vision camping forum where you may find some good information about Trail Lites -http://www.r-visioncamping.org/modules.php?name=Forums.

RE: Mice/rodent proofing a camper

There are a lot of options for mice as mentioned but you also said "other rodents". If this includes squirrels, especially red ones, it becomes a real challenge. I have tried about everything and some like fresh cab seem to work for a short time but the only one I have had any real luck with is Critter Ridder. I get at Tractor supply. I spray it around the under side of the TT and around the wheel wells, my shed and my truck. Can't spray directly on glossy paint. Has to be reapplied every couple weeks and not real cheap but better than the damage they can cause.

RE: Equal-i-zer or Andersen?

I think you will be fine with your current hitch but why not talk to the Equal-i-Zer people and get their opinion. They have been very helpful for me.

RE: Do you use other RV forum sites?

Use IRV2 also but it seems more oriented to full timers and big rigs. We downsized to a small TT and only a few trips a year.

RE: Smokey Mountains & Blue Ridge Parkway

Twin Creeks is a good choice it's where we stay. Very convenient to almost everything, and the trolley to town and the cdraft loop not cheap but worth the price. You might want to get a reservation for the main tour at Biltmore especially if you go on a weekend.

RE: Towing with a 5.3?

My son has a 21' Bayliner of similar weight and we have towed it with 6 different GM pickups/suvs with the 5.3 with 4 sp and 6 sp trans and different gear ratios. Never had a problem.

RE: Smoky Mountain National Park Area Camping

We use Twin Creeks very nice campground centrally located on the Trolley route to town and the craft routes. Has all the a pool and dog park and has sites that accomodate large rigs with full service. Close to resturants and stores and only a short drive to the park visitor center and entrance.

RE: Hunting island state park , sc

We stayed there last year. Very large campground and the park includes a Lighthouse and a free fishing pier and miles of beach. We had a full service site in the woods. Very private and a shortwalk to the great beach but tight turns to get in. Beach area was more crouded area. Had to go to the store to get WIFI. Nice park stays full during the season so need to get a reservation.

There are several sites that list OR dump stations. One I use is http://www.sanidumps.com/rvdumpsregion.php?region=51, but there are a couple others if you search on it.

RE: how much weight do you tow with 1/2 ton gm 5.3l

On my thrid GM truck with the 5.3 engine. Threre is a huge difference between the older 4 sp trany and the never 6 sp equipped vehicles. The newer trucks, 2007? or later I think, tow much better even with the 3.42 gears than the older ones even with the lower gears.

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.

RE: Visiting the Statue Of Liberty

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.
