RE: Question about hooking up my tailgater

I can run mine right through the satellite connection on the outside of the TT. Just have to remember to turn off the booster.

RE: Do I have enough truck for trip?

We have been over the Rockies and back several times with a similar TV and a TT just a little lighter than yours. May not have been the fastest up the long grades but always made it. An engine in good condition should be able to run at higher RPMs without harm. Sounds like a great trip.

RE: '04 Chevy Tahoe 5.3L

I have always used a equal-I-zer hitch and would not tow with out weight distribution and sway control to go with the brake controller, especially with an SUV with a shorter wheel base.

RE: '04 Chevy Tahoe 5.3L

I've had three tow vehicles with a 5.3 and the heaviest TT ready to go weighed in at just under 5K. The ones you are looking at would be well over that loaded I think. My 2011 Silverado is the only one of those three I had that really pulled our TT well, the others had the 4 sp versus the 6 spd tranny and really struggled in the mountains. Think being in KY you wouldn't be happy towing those TTs.

RE: Parking trailer on an decline

If it's just a slight slope you can do it either way. Newer TTs will be OK with the frig on. Day or even few days you should be OK.

RE: Oregon Holiday

We stay at Harris Beach Oregon State Park, just over the border and about a hour to the Red Woods. Very nice with some full hook ups and some beach views, close to shopping and restaurants. There are commercial parks in CA near the big trees but most look like parking lots and are costly.

RE: Avalanche vs Tahoe

Had an 05 Ave and towed a 5k loaded ready to go for many miles, over the Rockies several times. Would not try 8k even with the 7 sp trans ( which is a better trans in tow haul than the 4 sp had both) in the newer ones unless it was a 2500.

RE: Oregon Holiday

Grew up in the Gorge and go back often. We use Ainsworth state park right near Troutdale and two great waterfalls, has full service and very nice and also Mamaloose Island State Park with a great view of the rive, near the Dalles much to see and do in the Gorge.

RE: Things to do in Cincinnati OH

If you do come to see the USAF Museum Dayton is only an hour drive from Cincy which is the most visited attraction in this area you need to also see Carillon Park which has great exhibits including a lot of the history on the Wright Brothers and a automaton show that is truly amazing. Kids love the show and the exhibits.

RE: Blackwell Island RV Coeur d Alene ID

Do not recommend the RV Park right downtown on the river (can't recall the name) we had a reservation there but once we saw it we would not stay and went to Blackwell which was more expensive but a much better place to stay.

RE: Sat Radio

They do give a discount on a second Radio and if you pay a years sub they give a discount,still not cheap. If you have a portable sat radio and kit you can move it around into RV and outside. We have a dock with speakers we can use in our RV when we have power or you can us 12 volt with a small speaker.

RE: Black Hills, Mt Rushmore area attractions

Lived in Rapid City for 4 years and really always found things to see and do. Sadly we liked Deadwood before gambling but after going back several times since it really has become very touristy and lost a lot of its charm. We still like wall drug touristy but it still one of a kind place. Be aware can't take your dog into Mt Rushmore at all. Can into Crazy Horse but only to the open deck area in the visitor center. There are plenty of other things to see within the Park and within easy drives. Gets pretty crowded avoid the bike rally just a total parking lot.

RE: National Park Service has it all wrong!!??

For what its worth - Most of us could probably afford to pay yearly but - Just a different take on this - us older RV folks spend a lot of money when we travel which helps our economy and we tend to use the park facilities when they at times other than the schools summer vacation. We like to do spring and fall camping when there are fewer people (and kids).

RE: I-75 closed in TN

If you are going north and only towing a boat you will have no problem using 25w, get off at the Lafollette exit 34 and go north on 25 to Jellico and pick up I 75. About 30 miles, we have done it dozens of times with TT or 21' boat. Some tight turns one railroad underpass that's tight and blind but if you are careful should not be a problem.

RE: White Sands

We generally stay at the Air Base but we did stay at a decent state park not far from Alamogordo, don't remember the name. There is also a couple of places in Cloud Croft in the mountains.

RE: Tell me about USAA insurance

USAA over 50 years - MHs, TT, home, cabin, cars/vintage cars umbrella policy. Both sons have had it for years - one son had house fire, we had storm damage, wife had couple accidents, one son had a car totaled every time we were satisfied with their responses. Never had them raise rates because we had a claim.

RE: I-75 closed in TN

We have taken our TT on that route many times to our cabin both ways. You can probably do it but there are quite a few tight turns, one blind tight railroad underpass and one long steep grade. Not very wide in many places. Its only about 20 miles but I would be very careful we have seen some big trucks on that route so it can be done I my opinion.

RE: Badlands/Mt Rushmore

Having lived in Rapid city for a few years can say there are so many other things to do and see in that area you might want to only use one day for the Badlands. There is a decent private campground in Wall which is within walking distance to the touristy stuff like Wall Drug and only a short drive to the Badlands.

RE: New Silverado 1500

I think your mileage will improve a little, seems to on the new vehicles I have had. I also think that it's very important to go easy on a new engine for the first 1000 miles or so. I think GM recommends 500 with no towing now but I always do a little more and I change the oil at 1000. This may be over kill but I was a career A/C maintainer and as an old guy have had a lot of new engines and never had to open one up. It's not as important as it used to be but if you are planning to keep the vehicle, a long time, especially one for towing it will pay off in the long run.
