RE: Valley of the Gods Road question.

I would drop at Goosenecks. Loved the VOG. But make sure the river crossing is safe to use (for your exit) if entering by the Moki. It would be a long drive back. Or maybe going the whole length just seemed long because we stopped so many times for pictures. I can't remember how many miles it was.

RE: Sequoia & Kings Canyon 198 to Potwisha CG

Plan on a full day for Potwisha to Kings Canyon and return. We did it last summer. It is a full day, but doable.

RE: Route 89A/389/Utah 59

Personally I avoid any road that is designated `scenic'. Perhaps Mountain Directory West would be helpful. Then why travel at all Dick? 89A has a long climb but is not steep and is good route. To put it in perspective the 4000 foot climb on 89A is over 35 miles, while the 4000 foot climb out of Cedar City on Rt 14 is over 16 miles.

RE: Iconic Pikes Peak Cog railway closed until....?

I rode both the cogs in 2014 and 2015 and feel fortunate to have done so. Drove to the top of Mt Washington back in 90's and won't do that again. Driving to the top of Mt Evans is not difficult and a truely a unique experience.

RE: Scale numbers and distribution setup

120 lbs off of your front axle is nothing to be concerned about it. No different than taking home a few 80 lb bags of salt in the bed for your water softener. Pickups are designed to have a load in the bed and function perfecting fine.

RE: Kings Canyon NP to S. Lake Tahoe

Also, you need to get to the Dorst campground from the north. You can not use the Sequoia entrance on 198 heading north out of Three Rivers because of length restrictions. Climb to the top of Moro Rock. It is worth it.

RE: Chaco Culture National Historic Park

We stayed in Bloomfield at Desert Rose for both Aztec and Chaco. I would never bring my RV to Chaco. Terrible road. Structures were unbelievable and are a must see.

RE: Help getting thru Phoenix

For starters, it's no big deal to get through Phoenix except during rush hour. Try the 60 to the 202 to the 101 to the 17 to the 74. Google Maps can be your friend. At 10:00 am you won't even have a slowdown with this route.

RE: New Equal-i-zer Hitch

The 12 and 14 use the same bars, so I don't see how the 14 is going to put more stress on your frame. The 14 hitch head will be heavier to lug around.

RE: Info about Chaco Canyon and other sites in NM

We stayed in Bloomfield and drove down to Chaco. The entrance road is terrible, but the structures are impressive. It is an amazing experience.

RE: Silver Strand State Beach California- HELP

we had the same issue when we stay at Silver Strand. we moved to Sweetwater Regional Park, one of San Diego County parks. relatively short drive inland and very nice place. W/E hookups and cheaper than Calif. State Park prices. We might look into this, All of the RV parks want as much $$ as a hotel! Its crazy. Thank you Guess you haven't stayed in a hotel around there. Way more expensive. In fact everything in CA is expensive as you will find out.

RE: campground between Bryce and Zion

We have been to Bauer's twice. If you want in between there you go.

RE: Arizona 188 Globe - Roosevelt

There is a 1500 ft climb at 5.5 to 7 percent. The 9 percent grade is only for a hundred feet, really short. You will not have any trouble. Mountain Directory is full of doom and gloom IMO.

RE: Towing with an F-450.

We tow with a full size Kenworth tractor with a Smart car on the deck, 42 5th wheel behind and do not stop at weigh scales, as said above, not getting paid and no commercial marking on the truck. The truck is also registered as a RV, in 5 years so far never been chased down or stopped, some LEO have admired and complimented us on our set up as well. This has been discussed many times on the Escapee forums in the HDT section if you would like to check it out there. I think I saw you in 2013 at the Gunnison KOA. If it wasn't you then you have a twin running around out there.

RE: Torrey, Utah to Monument Valley

There is literally nothing (but beauty) from Hanksville to Blanding. There is a very scenic rest stop to get out and stretch. If you have an extra day, stay in Blanding (nice RV park) and visit Natural Bridges. It is worth it. You would also drive right by the House on Fire Ruin . A little hard to find, but pretty neat. Only about a 1 mile hike to the ruin and we didn't see one other person in or out.

We stayed at Elwah and would recommend it.

RE: New Equal-I-Zer Hitch Issue

I know you got it tightened but if anyone else runs into this problem here was my solution. I took off the socket bolts and moved the sockets over a bit (using the bar) so they were out the way. An 8 buck 1 and 7/8 inch socket fits just fine with the hitch head sockets out of the way.
