It looks like there was a dusting of snow last night at Yellowstone, in the high country above about 9,000 feet.

RE: Terrible Trucks

Buy used. You will be amazed at how many people buy a nice, big, truck and then find out how "BIG" it really is in traffic and parking lots; turn around and sell it. For instance, look at what is listed at Gibson Truck World. A

RE: Crystal River Area

Rockcrusher, but probably too early.

RE: Keeping fridge cool in high 90s temps

I got a rectangular "shade sail" at Harbor Freight and rigged one edge to attach to the top edge of the slide and pull the opposite edge out at an angle to attach to tent pegs. The shade on the side of the trailer helps the fridge a lot. I also try whenever possible to set up so the kitchen side is facing East or North; away from the afternoon sun.

RE: Level on sloped campsites. How? Unique to 5er's

My main section (on Atwood jacks) will extend at least twice that far. How did you determine that that is maximum extension?? I have had one of my jacks out of the trailer and torn down to replace the thrust bearing and the lead screw was almost 30 inches long, which means that I have about 28 inches of travel.

RE: Those with 50 amp 5er's

Wouldn't be without an extra 25' You will not need it often, but when you do, it is too late to run to 7-11 and pick one up. I also have an old, beat up 30A by 30 foot that lives in the bottom of the tool box on the truck with various dog bones.

RE: RV toilet paper

I have a septic tank at home. We use whatever brand of toilet paper is on sale at Publix. After 47 years and two kids in the same house my tank has had to be pumped twice for accumulated solids. I do not have a garbage disposer in my sinks and we do not discharge the clothes washer into the tank (grey water dry well). Again! Toilet paper is NOT a problem.

RE: When replacing tow vehicle, do you.....

Never heard of illegal; but then "dealers is dealers!". I bought my current truck used and it had rails in it, so I left the rails in the old one when I passed it to my son. He uses a Reese goose-neck adapter on the rails to pull his construction dump trailers.

RE: RV toilet paper

You do not have a septic system that processes waste! The RV has a HOLDING tank. Toilet paper brand and type is of absolutely NO importance and has NO impact on how a holding tank works or doesn't work. Plenty of water and frequent emptying and flushing with plenty of clean water ARE important. Yes, my degree IS in Civil and Sanitary Engineering. A long time ago, maybe, but poop is still poop. A

RE: rv registration

I would think (based on Florida experience) GA. I would call or e-mail the State Vehicle Registration office and ask them. They live there, I don't.

RE: proper hook up procedure?

Large, heavy, rubber chocks from Northern Tool, not Harbor Freight or Walmart cheapies. ON EDIT: Camping World also has some useless ones.

RE: Front landing gear broke

I was about to post that it sounds like a shear pin or bolt. (Not "sheet", the parts man won't know what you need.) Pop the top off of the leg. If the crown gear turns when you hit the switch, but the leg doesn't move, dig around in the grease and find a pin (or broken parts of a pin) about 1/8" diameter and an inch long. There is a hole through the gear and a matching hole in the top of the lead screw. The pin locks the two together. The pin is usually broken when the landing gear is run too far up or down. The system can, however, keep working for some time until all of the parts work their way out of the holes and everything fails. Good luck.

RE: Short Beds w/out Sliding Hitch

GaryP, My son has a Dodge quad-cab with that same dent. They must install them at the factory on short beds! They are an extra cost option for my long bed Chevy. A

RE: Flashlight

Another vote for Harbor Freight freebies. If you drop one out of the truck or into a river you just get out another one. We have 5 or 6 of them.

RE: Yellowstone glacier NP with no reservations

Not until October and by then it is likely to be snowing. BTDT!!

RE: Jacking up a Fifth Wheel

When I switched out my axles, I used 4x4 fence post cut down to 12 or 18 inch pieces for the cribbing.

RE: Basic 5th wheel towing questions.

Also keep in mind that to keep a 27 foot fiver under 9,000 pounds loaded (dry weight means nothing) some compromises in quality of fittings (cabinets, furniture, etc) will have been required. While not absolutely true in EVERY case, light weight like low cost doesn't necessarily mean value.
