RE: 3-4 week trip west... A little nervous!

You mentioned Colorado and then wanting to see the Badlands. If you mean the SD Badlands, just remember there is a lot of miles between them. Suggest you plan the sites/stops etc in an order that you don't have to back track to see them all. Whereever you go and stop it will be great for the kids and you both as well. We sort of free lanced our first few trips to the west a Rockies. If it looked interesting, we stopped and checked it out. It was much easier getting around in a truck than a MH back then, but with a MH or camper it is much easier to find a place to overnight.

RE: Jackson WY Fuel Stop

Looking at Shell and Chevron mentioned above, using Google Earth street view, Shell looks more accessible and has a bigger lot. I see three diesel pumps off to the right.

RE: Bear Tooth Highway

westernrvparkowner You are right, it's those pesky other people that are the issue. Though they should feel honored to drive 5 MPH behind someone who cannot or will not drive any faster, they often get frustrated. Then they get even more frustrated when that 5 MPH driver won't utilize the infrequent pull outs to let the line of traffic pass. Some will just salute you with an outstretched finger, others will pass when it is not advisable, putting you, themselves and other travelers at risk. In my opinion, it is very selfish to plan a route where you know you won't be able to travel the speed of the traffic, just to prove you can. I can't think of too many situation where someone would need to drive the Beartooth highway. It is traveled almost exclusively because it is an incredibly scenic drive. Do everyone a favor and park your big rig and drive it in an appropriate vehicle. Well said!! Beautiful drive if you are in something that can do this route, but there is always someone who wants to prove how macho it is to drive a motor home and tow across. Why? Creep up the side of the mountain and creep down the other side. Not enough room to get into a pull out (if there is any there) with that hookup and the people behind you are getting more frustrated wanting to get around. Like the man said, do everyone a favor, be safe and drive something meant to take a route like this.

All ya'll folks likely don't want to hear from an old Southern boy on this matter but it is likely a GRILL you are talking about. BBQ is the meat product the grill produces - cooked low and slow. ;)

RE: Blow front tire, what do you do?

One has to ask this - All those giving advice, how many have had a blow out?

RE: Any concern re: rattlesnakes at Catalina State Park, Tucson?

In that part of the country, there are a lot of things crawling and walking around at night that don't necessarily have scales. Just saying. . . ;)

RE: Stickers on bus??

not Pat Butram - Pat Brady (one of the Sons of the Pioneers) The Jeep was Nelliebelle. Pat was an employee of the Double R Bar ranch, Roy's TV show ranch Andy Devine was "Jingles P Jones". He was a sidekick to Autry. Butram was also a side kick to Gene Autry and also Mr. Haney on 'Green Acres'.

RE: Help Identify this Class A (Criminal Case)

Is it possible the OP is wanting to buy the MH when the county/state sells it after the condemnation hearing? The more information he has about the unit, the more he is able to figure out what it is worth. If it has had meth manufactured inside it, the state may require it be destroyed however.

RE: Which campground in Custer State park?

Having worked at Custer for two summers, let me suggest that nice as Legion Lake is (as far as location to food and swimming goes) the CG is in a narrow notch between two hills. On summer days with little or no breeze it gets hot in that little notch. No breeze gets into the notch. Stockade South and Stockade North are set up on a hill and most sites in both locations are mostly shade. The lower loop at has a water source in the middle that can be reached with a longer hose from many of the sites in that loop. South has a water source on the upper end behind the shower house. Center Lake is just passable IMO but many of the locals like it. Sylvan Lake CG has the highest elevation in the park, but the sites are small (nothing for big rigs) and close together. Game Lodge is probably the most popular. Level sites and reasonable in size and there is a chance you will have buffy grazing on the lawn just over the fence. Lot of wild life visit there. Blue Bell is probably the prettiest (again IMO) Set in pines with a lodge across the street and horse livery adjoining the CG. Some larger sites for big rigs. Nice stream around one edge of the CG. Grace Coolidge is on the main highway thru the park. Nice little stream surrounding the backside of the CG and a fishing area (pond and stream) across the street Level sites, some in the open but mostly shade. Horse Camp. Big sites, open and shade. Restricted to those camping with horses. Beautiful stream running through the CG. There are numerous privately owned CGs around the CSP and Custer city with full hookups, but generally more expensive.

RE: 2015 Wrangler Unlimited questions

We have a '13 Unlimited with the 3 piece hard roof. The A/C does a good job keeping it cool inside. That said, with a bare hand against the bottom of the roof top, it is pretty warm, if not hot on a hot summer day. I keep saying I am going to glue some thin insulation (like the aluminized bubble wrap Lowes sells) on the undersides of the panels and the rear cover. Just the flat area, not the support 'beams'.

RE: RV Waste Disposal?

Just a word of caution to make sure you know exactly what it is before doing anything with it. Several years ago a heating oil company with a 'know it all driver' with little common sense came to a local school and told them he knew where the tank was. Drove around to the back part of the school and dumped 3000 gallons of heating oil into the septic system. Sometimes a little checking along with a little sniffing can save some major headaches

RE: Damon motorhomes

Bought a 2008 Essence Damon in 2008. New coach. Pretty nice trim interior. Sleep Number king bed, 4 door refrig, corian countertops, ceramic floor, 4 slides etc. Very few problems but when you do contact service or parts at the factory there was/is the most grouchy woman (I will not call her a lady) I have ever talked to. Did not want to give you parts numbers or information on other sources that would work. When I tried to order parts, she refused to sell to me saying I needed to buy from my dealer I bought from. I told her he had gone out of business and she very reluctantly finally gave me a part number for the cable that powers the step well cover. Likely will NOT buy another Thor coach for the way this woman acted and treated me. I will tell the dealer why and let him tell the people at the factory how he missed a quarter mil sale because of this woman.

RE: If I won the mega-millions lottery I would...

Friend of ours just won nearly a quarter million on a quick pick. Paid off his tractor and bought a used car. Govt took a pile before he even got the check. The IRS had an agent at the lottery office in Augusta (Ga) waiting on him to arrive. What would they do if you hit some major money? There should be some sort of grace period that one could use to set up something to keep they from taking such a large percentage. What would I do with a BIG pay off? Big chunk to the Multiple Sclerosis research group and I'd make a lot of deserving, hardworking people very happy. I pretty much have all I want/need except good health for MsC. Making the load easier for some not as fortunate might be a good thing to do

RE: Water pump continues to run on

Are you losing pressure back through the pump diaphragms? This would not move water so it would be quiet but the pump is trying to regain the pressure. There could be a piece of grit, trash or even a tiny hole causing it. there are rebuild kits on most makes

RE: Looking for App where I can select miles per day.

Rand McNally has a pretty good program called Trip Maker Deluxe. Not good for street number addresses, but fine for finding quickest, scenic, routes. You can set it up for the number of miles you want to travel and any stops you want to make. Has POIs etc. relatively cheap but sure helps in planning stages.

RE: Communications

We were on a volunteer list at a state park in SD and had a ton of offers around the state. Turned them down, specifying we wanted a particular park. Two weeks before the park opened for the season they had a volunteer cancel and then called and asked could we be there within two weeks. We were able to make it, but had to wrap up things at home rather quickly.
