RE: Potable Water Etiquette

This is worse. I once caught a guy allowing is dog to drink from the community water, mouth on faucet. I said,"You do realize that people get their drinking water there" and he pretended not to know. Gross.

RE: Potable Water Etiquette

No, I think your concern is appropriate. Those aren't meant for individual units. It would be OK if the person is filling their tank I guess. I probably wouldn't make an issue of it if there are plenty of other faucets near by. But, if not, I would unhook it to get the water I need.

RE: How do you stabilize your Class C when parked for camping?

We do nothing to stabalize our 30 ft Class C and have no problem.

RE: Boondocking near Major City Experiences

Might be ify. We have stayed in quite a few Walmarts, for example, and the only 1 where we felt a little uneasy because of drunk or crazies walking through at night was in a large city.

RE: What do you use for a BBQ?

The Weber I use is great. It's black, sort of rectangular with a lid and works off the small screw on propane tanks. There are several sizes and mine was around $100. Only problem is that aren't tall enough to do something large like a chicken. Great for steaks, chops, pieces of chicken and I have done a small roast in foil.

RE: MPG woes

Sounds bad. I get about that + or - 2 with our 30 ft. Class C V-10. But before you give up realize that the way we check MPG isn't real accurate and 1 short trip isn't enough to get close to a true reading. But, if you can't get 12 or 15, I guess why have a Class B?

RE: How do you flush out the fresh water tank?

I don't obsess too much about it. I just make sure to drain after an outing, then some bleach and refill before next trip. The big thing is that we just don't use our tank for drinking. We fill a plastic container with a faucet on it for drinking, coffee, etc and a couple of extra big clorox bottles full of back-up water. I guess we could still get something from showering but hopefully the bleach covers that.

RE: Explain this

My guess is that going down does not cancel up because the motor is still running and using some fuel?

RE: Quick overnight stops in route

My only concern with cracker barrel is that aren't open 24 hrs. so no security?

RE: Full time in smaller RV

I think it's all a state of mind. You can decide what size you need to be content. Especially if you never expect any RV to be like a house.

RE: Explain this

Fuel consumed is almost always going to be most effected by the weight towed and the speed driven, then hills, wind and to a small degree a few other factors. Also, our usual method of checking MPG isn't really very accurate so MPG could vary on paper from time to time even if everything is unchanged.

RE: Quick overnight stops in route

Walmart has worked fine for us 6 or 8 times but we were turned down at 1 during Christmas season. I don't ask if there are already several overnighters (common in the West) but I do if none. Sometimes they allow even if posted otherwise

RE: Trail Ridge not quite ready for you ...

Haven't been to RMNP for a long time and I don't remember; are there any length restrictions? We are towing a small car with a 30 ft. Class C.

RE: 5th whee insurance?

I haven't had many claims but I just always use the regular company that insures our car, home, etc. and have done so for many RV's. I kind of think that the ads to use special companies for RV's may just be hype or advertisement. I did have 1 significant claim for our present Motor home(my fault) and there was no problem.

RE: National Park Camping

I went back and read some of the posts and I don't get the best time to be in winter. Not for parks like YNP and Tetons. Most of YNP is at 8000 ft. or higher; very cold, lots of snow and most campgrounds closed. Perhaps OK for some in Utah and points south?

RE: National Park Camping

Just go to each park's website for excellent information. But, with 40 ft. You're going to have some problems finding big enough sites in many national parks and will have to do some careful planing. It's not just the size of the sites but the interior roads, trees in the way, etc. Or a campground might have sites but only 2 or 3 in the whole campground. Also, don't expect hook-ups. Yellowstone does have one RV park with hook-ups and it might work. Also there is Flagg Ranch between YNP and Grand Teton. If some say "no problem" don't believe it.

RE: Glacier NP to Iowa (North route)

No problems on US 2. Have taken it several times all the way from Duluth. Not even any steep grades.

RE: Would selling this trailer be irresponsible?

Tough question. I can see both sides. Their being dumb isn't your responsibility in a way or is it where know danger is involved? Would I sell a 35 ft. 5th wheel to someone with a half-ton truck. Probably, with strong advice to get a bigger truck. My son won't sell his 35 ft. motor home with questionable brakes until he has it inspected and I agree. But if these people came to you with no information about the tow vehicle, you wouldn't know any better and would sell? If you do sell, I would have them sign a statement that they were informed of the concerns.

RE: Fishermans Corner

It 's our favorite spot for local (60 miles) camping which we don't do much of. It's right on the river with a great view (some sites) of the **** and barges and is right on a very long bike path. Any restaurant or store you want with-in the Quad Cities. We just stayed in site # 8. There are 2 loops. Most of the sites in the loop with # 8 have a river view but none in the other loop. All are paved and level. Electric hook-up but not water. A caution that it is very popular and busy with seniors and now most sites are reserveable. There isn't much to do within the campground; that is, no hiking or similiar activities.

RE: time for new tires?

Definitely replace because of age. I didn't and paid with a blow-out in remote Montana. After 6-8 years it just isn't worth saving the money for another y ear or so.
