RE: Love them KOA's

The woman was the manager and has been fired according to a news report. I`m sure there is more to follow.

RE: Colorado State Park Advice

One thing to keep in mind: a number of Colorado's state parks, including Ridgway, have become reservation only for campsites. Which means you cannot drive up and take an empty site. You have to call an 800 number or use the internet for all sites. Check their web site for which parks are involved and the rules.

RE: Sorta 'Survey' - IKEA RV Stuff

Been to an IKEA once, not our cup of tea. Huge store with lots of stuff but nothing that interested us to warrant the 12 mile drive and crowded area and store. Better stores close by.

RE: Storing Your RV

We have had a similar experience as B.O. I have an easy route to the lot, mostly on 4 lane roads or freeway. The roads in the lot and each site are wide enough to maneuver. Would we rather have the trailer at home ? Sure but not possible. I caution about on street parking as it can lead to issues with neighbors even if okay now.

RE: Glacier (west side) help....

We stayed at North American RV Park which is just outside the west entrance. I made reservations, and even extended for a couple of days. This was in Sept. of 2016. It is a Passport America Park.

RE: Rancho 9000's or Bilsteins?

Crabby, When I replaced the OEM shocks on my truck with Bilsteins I also replaced the steering stabilizer with a Bilstein. It made a big difference all around.

RE: Samson Tires

I doubt most folks know who the parent company is or can pronounce the parent companies name for Sailun S637 tires or other very good Asian rim countries ST/LT/P tires either. However like made in Mexico Ram truck/6.7 Ford diesels who really cares .....whats important is how the product stands up to long term service. :B

RE: What will be your towing powerplant in 10-15 years ?

I like how electric vehicles are referred to as “zero emission”. It’s like electricity grows on trees to some. X2

RE: RV caught on Fire

Thank you it was completely burned from the front to middle. We will probably just take the insurance check bc we still have a loan. Not sure if contents like plates, clothes etc are covered. Could be covered, depending on your policy. I'd make sure I got everything that I was entitled to.

RE: 100% Gasoline vs 10% Ethanol

We have had E10 here for 40 years and after a few years of worrying about it and driving all over for "pure gas" I gave up and ran E10 in everything, including lawn equipment, snow blowers and marine engines. I have never had any issue with running, storage, gummed up carberators or failed rubber hoses as stated "on the internet". This includes a 20 year old mower and a 19 year old Mercury outboard. MPG may be a bit less but price more then offsets that.

RE: Is it legal to get use?

Z, Good observation, no one took notice of that before dispensing "legal" advice.

RE: AA battery life

If you are near a Costco go buy their jumbo pack of Kirkland batteries. Made by Duracell. The go to batteries for high drain devices are Duracell and Energizer, you get what you pay for. The Costco stores here don't have their Kirkland batteries anymore. They have Duracell.

RE: Hitch longevity

My 20000lb Reese is 22 years old and still works fine. I lube the jaw faces and trailer pin 2-3 times a year. I take the head apart every other year and clean and lube all parts. I only use wheel bearing grease. The 2 springs were replaced at 10 years old. I have no plans to replace the hitch anytime soon. We travel from April to November from our home base, usually 5-6000 miles on average per year to many destinations.

RE: GVWR, AXLE Ratings, and Tire Load Range???

Look on the back side of the wheel, you may have to remove it. The weight capacity should be stamped in the metal.

RE: Exhaust Brake Buying...

I had a US Gear D-Celerator on a ‘95 F350 and loved it. Never had a problem with it. In some respects I liked it better than the type of exhaust brake/tow-haul mode on my F450. :):) Had one on my `99 7.3l and it held back okay. My issue with it was it would not open at times at the bottom of the grade. Had to pull over and wait. A second, larger size brake did the same thing. I eventually traded the truck in so someone else had to deal with it.

RE: Is this legal???

I wonder where the OP went, probably scared off by all this "legal" talk. :h

RE: Glacier NP red bus tours

We did a 4 hour tour on the west side and really enjoyed it. The price is worth not having to drive or deal with all the traffic.

RE: Anyone using Sailuns

Thanks for the info guys, think I'll try the Sailuns and see how they do. I know it will be some time but keep us informed.

RE: Camco RV vent covers

I had an older style Camco that opened from the front for cleaning. It lasted 2 seasons and fell apart. I am trying one like your picture now. My other 2 are Maxx Air and have lasted a long time but are cracking at the bolt holes so it won't be long. Our sun is tough on plastics.
