RE: "Laminated Aluminum Floor" Definition?

Looks like the top is plywood, then foam, and lauan with welded aluminum framing. They show the floor in this video, but all they say is plywood top. They don't say how thick it is looks like 3/8" thickness. Impression factory tour.

RE: Help with Glacier please

Thank you, I’ve chosen my campgrounds, but can’t get reservations until 4 days before. Yikes! Is that the only way to get reservations to the in-house campgrounds I listed? Do I need to choose backup campgrounds and get them reserved in case there are no openings in the in-house campgrounds? Seems like a lot of unnecessary work. What am I missing? From the national parks service web page: "Reservations Campsites become reservable on a rolling basis, 6 months in advance from the date you want to book your stay. New in 2023, a certain number of sites will be reservable up to 4 days before the desired date." Most sites can be booked 6 months in advance, some sites can be booked 4 days in advance. Get on line in February at recreation.gov.

RE: Help with Glacier please

Would you help me get started on planning an anniversary trip next August please? I’d like to drive in from the east and camp then take our tow car and venture out every day for 3-4 days(?) We aren’t hikers. Then I’d like to break camp and head west, but since we have a 32 foot RV and tow a car I know we have to take a different road toward the west. I’d like to end up in the west part of the park for a few days also. Get on highway 89 southbound at St Mary, get on highway 2 westbound just before Browning. Highway 2 takes you to West Glacier.

RE: Carbon ceramic pads question

I used carbon ceramic pads once. All they did was cover the wheels in black dust. Went back to OEM ceramic pads, no more dust. Gary

RE: Salt Lake City

Wanting to know best route to Antelope Island State Park in Salt Lake City coming from Wyoming on I-80. Thanks Tara Don't stay on I80 to Salt Lake. Get on I84 at Echo UT towards Ogden. Take the Riverdale exit #81, turn left. Use the right lane to enter I15 south. Take the antelope drive exit #332 and turn right, it's a little over 9 miles to the entrance. Gary

RE: Jackson to Moab

I usually take 89 south to I15. This passes by Bear Lake. Take I15 to highway 6, highway 6 turns into 191 at Helper. 191 between Flaming Gorge and Vernal is a pretty steep drop, with a lot of switchbacks. Keep your speed in check down the hill if you go that way.

RE: Turn signal makes no clicking sound

2008 Chevy Silverado 4.8 v8 rear wheel drive. All lights work good turn signal flashes ok but makes no clicking sound. Ive heard it can be adjusted thru radio controls but have no idea how and internet search turned up nothing for that year vehicle. Help apreciated. Are any of the chimes working? If not check the left front door speaker. Gary

RE: Trailer hitch height adjustment and chain question

Do not twist the chains. Replace the hooks with clevis hooks, they will let you adjust the length of the chain. https://www.amazon.com/CURT-81920-Safety-Latch-Clevis/dp/B000BMXICE

RE: Anode Rod Wear

That's what the rods from my heater look like after 1 year. They are not expensive so I just put in a new one in the spring. I use the Suburban rods, they seem to hold up better. Suburban 232767 Anode Rod

RE: Towing with lifted truck; need assistance

How much larger than the stock size are the tires? If the axles were not re-geared to make up for the taller tires the towing capacity will be reduced. Wider tires also have more rolling resistance. Honestly I wouldn't tow anything over 20' or over 8K with it.

RE: Not bad for 11 years and 240,000 miles.

We have an 09 6.0 GMC with 86000 miles on it. Still on the original brake pads. I polished the headlights this year. The drivers seat has a small tear in it. The dash has a couple of cracks. The only mechanical problem so far has bee the transmission cooler lines had to be replaced because they were leaking. I'm thinking the shocks need to be replaced. It has the common problem with the paint on the top of the cab drying out and cracking, starting to show a little rust in the cracks. Planning on getting it fixed this winter.
