RE: Texas State Parks

Not all Texas State Parks have camping. Check the websites. Good point...I just assumed everyone knew that. There is an info site to get all the scoop on each park, and there is a reservation site where you put in the info for your equipment that will let you know if there is availability. Here are the links: Info site Reservation site Mark

RE: Texas State Parks

I think I have been to most every SP in Texas, and never found one that would accommodate my 40 footer. Some do have a limited number of sites that I will fit in, so I would NEVER go to the park without reservations. Just be sure to correctly select the size of your 5er on the reservation site when you make your reservations. It is first come first served upon arrival, so get there early!! I also like the Corp of Engineer parks. There you can actually reserve a specific site. Mark

RE: rust on worm gears track on slide outs

Wire brush to remove any heavy rust Use it on slide out rack and front landing gear inner and outer legs. 10 yrs and they work like new Sorry for the hijack, but how do you lube the inner legs? Mine will not slide down on their own unless I extend the outers nearly all the way down!! I've always figured there had to be a way to lube this, but never found it. Do you simply extend them and spray the outside of the inner leg? Thanks!! Mark

RE: Can you overload a dually?

This one is many years old. I know it's old...just thought we could have some fun with it. Actually, the tongue extension on the trailer reduces the weight on the truck hitch. Not if most of the weight of the trailer contents are in front of the axle!! Mark

Can you overload a dually?

Obviously you can!! Sheared the frame at the front leaf spring mounts!! The tongue extension on the trailer just made things worse!! Markhttp://i375.photobucket.com/albums/oo199/MDarrough/15226318145_6a7dae65eb_z_zps4imhd9i1.jpg~original height=480 width=640

RE: Looking for a nice RV park with easy access to north Austin

Old Settlers park in Round Rock (northern suburb of Austin) is very nice, and right next to Dell Diamond for some great AAA (farm team for the Texas Rangers) baseball. And right next to Salt Lick BBQ. Amazing good!! Mark

RE: Mt Rushmore, Yellowstone, Cheyenne

We are booked at Legions Lake for a couple nights and Colter Bay for 5 nights. Last week in Aug and first week in Sept. Just a suggestion...you stated you wanted to do Yellowstone and if you're staying at Colter Bay you are going to have a lot of slow driving daily to see Yellowstone. Why not change it to 3 nights in Yellowstone (Madison campground is centralized) and 2 nights at Colter Bay? Man I wish I would have thought of that when I booked!!Looks like Fishing Bridge is the only campground in Yellowstone with elec/water, and obviously only have a very few sites that will accommodate our 40ft 5er, and now they are filled up!! Never done the dry camping thing, but willing to try. But will any of the other CGs handle the 40 footer? Thanks again for all the info!! Mark

RE: Austin to Big Bend - Hill country stops

Inks Lake is great, along with (as mentioned) S. Llano River SP...our favorite. BUT, you better make reservations real early for Inks!! It is the second most popular park (behind only Garner), and books up way out. On your way through Marble Falls, be sure to stop at Bluebonnet Cafe!! Plenty of room to park around back. Once in Big Bend, hike into Santa Elena Canyon!! Beautiful but easy hike. Mark

RE: Mt Rushmore, Yellowstone, Cheyenne

Thanks again for all the great info. We are booked at Legions Lake for a couple nights and Colter Bay for 5 nights. Last week in Aug and first week in Sept. Couple more questions please... 1) What is the preferred route for Rushmore to Cody? Dually with 40ft 5th wheel. 2) Any overnight parking suggestions for the Cheyenne area? Thanks again!! Mark

RE: Mt Rushmore, Yellowstone, Cheyenne

Great info folks!! Thanks so much for taking time to respond with great suggestions!! Keep 'em coming!! Really looking forward to this trip!! And it's looking like we might be changing a few things as we learn more from you guys. I know we have a year, but I'm sure reservations will need to be made soon. Mark

Mt Rushmore, Yellowstone, Cheyenne

Planning a trip to these three areas next year late Aug or early Sept. Looking to get ideas of things to do other than the obvious. Tentative plan is to leave central Texas and go to Rushmore, then to Yellowstone, then back to Texas through Cheyenne. We've never been to either of these areas, so in your opinion, how much time is needed for each area? We have about 2 weeks, but we live outside of Austin, Tx so just getting to Rushmore is going to be three easy days or two hard days. Probably do the three day plan. While at Rushmore, we want to also see Crazy Horse. Your other suggestions? Is one full day enough for this area? I imagine Yellowstone area probably should be a trip in itself, and will be some day. But is three days enough to at east get a good feel of the park? My wife wants to visit Cheyenne, Wy. Nothing in particular to do, just always wanted to visit this town. What's on your "must see/do" list for Cheyenne? One full day enough there? We have a 40ft 5th wheel and a Ford dually TV Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!! Mark
