RE: Rapid City, SD to Yellowstone

We have done the 16 route over the Big Horns to Cody and it is a beautiful trip coming over. Little steep in a couple of areas, especially where the switchbacks start going down into the canyon. We have also run I-90 to Livingston and taken 89 into the park through Gardiner. Again curvy and a bit steep as you come into the park. I-90 to Bozeman and down 191 into the Park at W Yellowstone is our first route ever there. We still prefer that route if we a just touring around that part of the country. Seemed to have seen more animals there (wife loves wild life) coming into the Park this way.

RE: Lessons Learned From RV Cover Erection

We were good with a 36 foot coach and an 40 ft building. Now, with the 40 footer the building needs to be 50 to keep the rain and Georgia sun and UV damage to a minimum. I have friends who tried save money with side walls only half way to the ground. All say they should have followed my advice. My center bay is 12 wide. Should have made it 16 wide and the side bays 12 each. I didn't have the $$ at the time, but a 6" slab floor would have been the best thing to do

RE: front seats

UV light damages the fake leather. We try to keep the shades and blackouts drawn when we are not using the coach.

RE: SEMI cameras

tell you a story about Atlanta traffic and pulling close to the vehicle in front of you. As a young man, I had a variety of jobs. One of which was for Chevron (Standard Oil back then) One of our transport drivers was approaching a redlight and had slowed down to keep from completely stopping. Driver of a convertible sports car passes our guy on the left lane and then quickly changed back to the left lane wanting to turn left at the inter section. Light turned red and our driver stopped. When the light went green, the sports car sat there waiting to make his left turn until the opposing driver cleared the intersection. Our driver did not see him because of the big hood on the Peterbilt. He starts forward and strikes the sports car. He felt the bump and thought it was the liquid load in one of the compartments bumping the partition. He gets another gear and pushes the sports car across the intersection until someone yells and gets him stopped. Atlanta traffic is strange on some streets and the drivers do dangerous things without even knowing it is dangerous. Tall hoods of big trucks are fine for interstates but heavy traffic and surface streets are not the best combinations with the trucks.

RE: Yellowstone from South Dakota

Town of W Yellowstone and stay at Grizzly RV Park for FHU. Fishing Bridge CG is under rebuild(or maybe finished) The sites there the last time we were there, were pretty tight, especially for a 44' rig. I believe FB is the only CG in the Park with FHU

RE: Article - Best Campground in Every State

Not interested in tent camping and sleeping on the ground at my age

RE: Just an eye opener

Perhaps he thinks the lack of paint on the last three inches of the two post is the result of rain runoff?

RE: Cripple creek/Pikes Peak

Cog has re-opened since closing in 2017. The Broadmoor Manitou and Pikes Peak Cog Railway has finally opened to the public after closing in 2017 for improvements. The railway invested $100 million in new tracks and cars, shipped in from Switzerland, to carry folks up to the summit of Pikes Peak. May 20, 2021

RE: Approximate fuel milage of these 2 motorhomes?l

If I could have found a handicap diesel coach that is what my gasser we have today would be. Diesel chassis just seem to ride and handle better to me. Long distance traveling, give me a diesel any day. We have crossed the country several times in a diesel and mileage varied. Had a 300 Cat engine and on one trip across, east to west, we got great mileage 12+ . Same coach, engine same towed we got just a bit better than 5. Difference? We drove into a strong headwind all day long.

RE: Trailer floor

We bought a new coach and the factory failed to attach the roller under the bed that supported that corner of the slide. Guy doing some work on it a year or so later found it when trying to adjust the slide to move over the carpet easier.

RE: How old is too old?

Before Katrina several years ago, we were on the Gulf. Ran into a older guy from "up north" who was still driving and doing the snowbird thing. He was in his late 80s. Point of this story is that he had a heart attack while we were there in the park. Other folks there were very concerned that his wife would not have anyone to care for her with him in the hospital. I never was able to find out how it turned out for them - we left a couple of days later

RE: Forest Service Campground - First Come, First Serve & hosts

We ran a couple of state park CGs for two summers. one was a first come, first served and the other took reservations. Never had problems with the FCFS, but we did have a 'ace in the hole' site for those who came very late and were desperate. Very seldom ever used that. The reservation CG was done through a reservation service and was subject to errors. We got reservation info via a computer where we printed the 'leaving on this date' cards. We kept a hole site for when the service messed up. This would happen, believe it or not. ;) If the site was not used by 6PM then it became available to FCFS. Many times, even after dark we had people coming in.

Just an observation and wondering

I have driven the Toyota Prius when they first came on the market years ago. I liked it and it ran fine with no problems, even in the summer. If, there is nothing (NO engine) but an electric motor to make these new electric cars go, what powers the A/C and on these days here in the South with 90 percent humidity and 90 degrees? I guess I am just old school and don't understand how this kind of setup could be of value for anything other than driving to the market and back.

RE: Which class a motorhome came with a dt466 engine?

WanderLodge built many of their coaches with Detroit diesels. I haven't seen one in years since Blue Bird closed their plant in middle Georgia.

RE: electrical question

Are you sure the chirp is from that box, and not from a nearby smoke, CO, or propane detector? Sometimes the sources of such noises can be fiendishly difficult to locate correctly. Excellent point

RE: electrical question

My smoke detectors do that but we have no outlet to plug in anything. Look close and see if you can tell if it might be opened somehow

Teach me about solar

Recommend a book or website about solar panels. Mostly theory and practical application is my goal. How and why they work. Size of panels, controllers, batteries etc to use for a motion detector lights and/or lights for a remote shed. Thanks guys

RE: Places to fill with fresh water and clever ways to fill ..

I don't own one but here is a thought for you, https://www.amazon.com/WaterBasics-Emergency-Storage-Filter-RED-II-120/dp/B00P8EBDB8/ref=sr_1_18?crid=2WQGGHLD3P991&dchild=1&keywords=emergency+water+bladder&qid=1622717624&sprefix=emergency+water+bladder%2Caps%2C167&sr=8-18 That 30 gallons of water is going to weigh 250 pounds. Going to take some serious manhandling to get it up the steps of the bus, when you do find a place to obtain the water

RE: Montana

I don't have advice for you, but it is interesting to note there is no Montanans replying a you are getting answers from as far away as Florida. Personally, we found Montana a beautiful place no matter where we were. They don't want you to feel it's so beautiful that you move there. Many do and then try to change the social things to where they left. My youngest son moved there in 2011 and doesn't let it be known he's not a native Montanan. Man we know that feeling! We live in the country in a rural county. Folks wanting to 'get out of Atlanta' are buying property at asking price and causing taxes to go up. They will say, 'we like the freedom and atmosphere where you live'. Within a year they a pushing for new ordinances and zoning.
