Yellowstone N.P.

I've been all over the Park many times! Has anybody ever rented a helicopter to fly over Yellowstone? There's a lot of places that I would like to still see but, I'm not healthy enough to hike, If so where do I go to make it happen. I rented a helicopter one time and flew over the Badlands N.P. what a great choice I made.

RE: What happens if you...?

I also have a automatic transfer switch and nothing would happen if I did what you described.

RE: Holding tank odor

I suggest flushing the black tank more often and use a black tank deodorant. And I agree with B.S. in Mich. check that vent pipe.

RE: Newbie mistake, after 4 years...

I've been RVing since 1976 several years ago the DW and I decided to dry camp at Quartzsite for 2 weeks. I was washing my hair outside with the outdoor shower system. I didn't want to wash my hair inside the coach trying to save water space in the gray tank. I turned the water off outside at the shower head not the faucet. The shower head was leaking slowly which I didn't see since it was pitch black outside. Woke up in the AM and I ran the coach out of fresh water in the containment tank. It can happen to the best of us!

RE: Yellowstone advice?

Been there many times I enter the Park via I-90 at Livingston, MT. I stay at the RV Park just before the bridge where you enter the Park (I can't remember the name of the RV Park). I've seen more animals at the North of of the Park then anywhere else.

RE: Oldest tires on a MH still running?

That's way too long for my liking! And I respect him for letting people know about the age of those tires.

RE: Could 10 year tires really be safe?

Trish, to honestly answer your question yes or no your tires need to be broken down off the rim. By breaking them down off the rim your tires can be inspected for inside sidewall damage. Inside sidewall damage is the cause of many blowouts. After your tire expert inspects your tires he or she can make a intelligent decision. I've run tires on my RV with 10 years 2 different times by using this method. Maybe when people make statements like this, THEY should do research and find out HOW MUCH a Tire company will charge to break down 6 or 8 tires just to inspect. Then reinstall and balance. That may make a big difference in the decision if they are spending hundreds of dollars just to inspect. Also, I doubt ANY Tire Company or expert would state that those 7 year or older tires are SAFE to reinstall and go down the road. They would not be stupid enough to incur the liability of stating those tires are still good. EVEN if they made you sign a liability waiver, the lawyers would still hang them out to dry if something bad happened. Doug I don't know what your talking about Doug! My tire guy charged me $20.00 a tire to break down 6 tires ($120.00) and he made no statement about tires running 7 years are longer! He told me that they were fine to run on. And, I had peace of mind. And I ran on them with no problems. I was just sharing my experience and what has worked for me! How's that for research! That's as civil as I can be to you!!

RE: Replacement tires

gee I,ve had two sets on our MH and never a problem. I just said IF your happy with michlin why change. Jim, sorry to see you got roasted for giving your opinion! I agree with you and the OP was talking about RV Tires and there are only two RV tires made for RV applications Goodyear 670 and Michelin XRV (example these tires are made of soft rubber because of all the sitting in place that RV's experience) all the rest of the tires are just hard rubber truck tires that can fit on a RV, and that's a fact, they weren't specifically made for RVing!

RE: Tire puzzler

Being a retired trucker I've never seen used tires like you talked about being used for steer or driver tires. I have seen these tires used on trailers especially on cans (ship haul trailers) we truckers called these tires run-outs (run the tires until there not safe to run anymore)!

RE: Noisy Air Vents - HELP

Maybe some type of lube sprayed into the back of blower assembly will quiet it down?

RE: Compartment door

Try pushing in on the door as you open the latch.X-2, this worked one time for me on my Winnebago. Once the door was open I made a adjustment.

RE: Entry door swings out too far

I've seen some use a rubber bumper. X-2, and it's a inexpensive fix

RE: Allegro front engine diesel

http://www.fcccrv.com/coaches/ Click on 2008 Allegro. Kind of a cross between a gas chassis and a DP. Front engine, Allison 2000 series transmission, hydraulic brakes, leaf spring suspension. Brett, are manufactures still making FREDS or is everything in the rear now? Sorry, don't know the answer. But a quick call to Freightliner, Gaffney would tell you. O.K. Thanks

RE: 1976 Kings Highway

Neal this was my first year RVing 1976 and I was drooling over the Kings Highway at that time. It was a very nice coach.

RE: What did you do to your Class A MH today???

Tinted the driver and passenger upper side windows. I would never of thought to do this until I heard a report on the news last week that UV Rays are only stopped by the front windshield not the side windows. Lot's of truckers and RVers have been getting skin cancer on the left side of there faces. IMHO you made a great choice!

RE: Cost of New Tires Hurricane

Petty big spread. $500+ for Goodyear G670 down to $120 for a Wanli S3074 (what ever a Wanli is). 245/70R 19.5 tires. Start at $2000 price drop and see what the seller counters with. X-2, I agree with Dale! I bought high end tires 3 years ago Michelin XRV and they were around $2,700.00 back then thru the FMCA / Michelin Fleet Discount Tire Program. My guess would be you could get a hard rubber truck tire for around $1,800.00 to $2,000.00 for 6 tires. Let us know how you make out. I know the price of rubber for tires has been fluctuating lately on the open market.
