RE: new roof

I see posts like this and it disturbs me. I know what is involved to fix that roof, I have done lots of major and minor RV repairs. I designed and built an entire new roof for one I fixed years ago. The rubber roof is one piece from end to end, therefore if you need to work on a spot near the AC you have to take a sizable portion of it off, but need it all off to replace it. Stripping the rubber back and then re-using it is not a good idea. OK, yeah, it's a lot of work, I know. But to see the money that these places charge severely annoys me. I could do it for half of that and still make a wage after paying for material. 7 grand? Wow, just wow! Unfortunately, the shop rate is high and most of us are at the mercy of the repair facilities. They do have a lot of overhead, the shop to pay for and all the rest of it, but gee whiz, 7K? Sadly, most shops will likely be similar in price. Kinda makes me want to open up my own shop and offer reasonable priced repairs. Anyhow, good luck to you, definitely shop around for a better price, and make sure you do your homework on the credibility of the shop and technicians you choose. Our RV tech here is going to do ours for $4k and not charge us for the wood if it needs it because he has it on hand, and I thought that was high.

RE: Fresh Water Tank Overflowing When Turning

I agree with Fisherman's resolution and cause, but ours has never done this. We have an overflow vent, in fact, we fill till we hear it "burp" and have never had it spill like described. Seems to me to be poor design, unless that's a Jayco thing, the vent that is.

RE: Spell check

As far back as I can remember, years, it hasn't worked.

RE: Winterize of Not

Run the furnace especially if it heats your basements, as ours does.

RE: I'm hooked!

Boondocking is our preferred way to camp, followed by FS CG's. We use Campendium to find sites and Freecampsites.net. In our home state we often set out on day trips using our Jeep to scope out sites. We never break camp in a new area, but that is the rule of boondocking, to never do that. Always camp only in areas that have previously been camped in to preserve the terrain. We are blessed to have a lot of areas here. It's not hard to find boondocking sites when traveling to other states by using the resources out there on the internet, including this site. The reminded me of the actual rule number one of real boondocking: Do not take your RV down that unknown road unless you check it out first. Driving down a FS road to find a dead end in a place that you cannot turn around in, is to be avoided. and how do we know? Been there done that or watched "The Long Long Trailer"!

RE: I'm hooked!

You may want to watch some of this couples vblogs. They have a Class A and mainly dry camp and boondock. When I first watched some of their stuff six months ago they seemed rather smarmy but their recent work is much better they have really loosened up a lot: The long honeymoon Lucy Ball not included. Confused me with the link because there is a couple that fulltime in their Airstream and their blog is The Long Long Honeymoon. The Lucille Ball movie is The Long Long Trailer. :)

RE: first time driving motorcoach to yellowstone,and glazier

From Butte, the best route, direct, would be I-90 to 287 and down through Ennis and to West Yellowstone. Yellowstone is huge, but Grant Teton not as much, just spread out more. You could home base in West Yellowstone giving you a direct route through YNP to GTNP and back. Then use your other days to travel the other parts of YNP. You could do all your exploring of YNP from West Yellowstone, then move to Colter Bay RV park or CG and explore GTNP from there. I wouldn't recommend Gros Ventre CG. It was recently expanded and sites are practically on top of one another. We saw huge Class A's in there but how they got in there is a quandary. When we go, we either stay in West Yellowstone at Baker's Hole FS CG (has electricity at most sites), Grizzly RV, or the KOA, or we stay off the Togwotee Pass in WY at Falls CG. We have stayed at Henry's Lake and Red Rock RV park on the Idaho side and have driven in as well. There are a lot of options so be open for another busy year of RV'ing with this Covid19.

RE: New Furniture

We too have to replace our recliners sooner than later. I made the mistake of leaving the back window shade up and the sun shining in caused the upper back cushion of one to deteriorate. Ugh! The other is fine and I'm considering just covering it for now till next year. Talked to our RV tech and he said any RV specific recliner will cost double and is no better. And, as already said, the backs of home recliners come off for easy entry. As for ultra leather. We had in our last RV, a Komfort, pleather and it was super nice and durable. I don't know enough about ultra leather to comment.

RE: Best Built 5er?

............... Horizons RV seems to make the `best'. I wonder how they are doing? For $200,000 and up for a 5er they better make it the best! :E Agree, but the higher price you pay does not mean it will be built well and trouble free.

RE: Teacher's Pet

I'm so, so, sorry! My sincere condolences to you and all those who loved your Teacher's Pet. May you find peace and strength in the coming challenging days/months/years. Glad to see you will continue RV'ing.

RE: Do RV Batteries Freeze in the Winter?

Charged batteries will not freeze. Low or dead batteries will freeze. Unless you can gurantee that the batteries will stay fully charged, I would pull them and install a trickle charger if not inside a heated area. Doug Agree! Hubby maintains ours religiously throughout the winter AND keeps the FW plugged in. Never have had a problem.

RE: RV sale pending, but we found evidence of mice...

We had 2 mice in a campground this year. I didn't want to use poison and have them die in an inaccessible place so I used the old fashioned spring traps. Exactly! We use bait around our house. Well, guess what? One got in the 5w and died. Have no idea where or how because there has never been sign of them in there and we used spray foam or steel wool to block all holes, but one found a way in.

RE: Cell phone signal Booster ?

We have a Weboost installed in our FW. With 1 to 2 bars, we can connect with the Weboost "boosting" it to 3 bars. Depending on where we are sometimes 1 bar with the Weboost won't work.

RE: Colorado - Wyoming - Montana - Idaho

Great info!!! We can move the trip 3-4 weeks later so that we are there mid-August until Mid-October. 8 weeks is about our max plus 5-6 days each way. We are thinking that we might just do 2 states (MT & WY) in 2021. I obviously have a lot of research to do! Thanks again!!! On the other end of the spectrum, be prepared for colder weather at nights especially around end of Sept to Oct. We just returned from a two week trip to the Tetons and Yellowstone. We were there from Sept 14 thru 25th. First week and half lows were in the 40's, at the end it was 30's. After we left the lows dipped to a consistent mid to upper 20's. Beautiful daytime weather though!

RE: Booking Camping sites for 2021

For Idaho campgrounds it's 6 months out unless it has changed recently.

RE: Colorado - Wyoming - Montana - Idaho

Being from Idaho, those months can be really hot, especially in Idaho. Late August to mid-September is better.

RE: Keyless Entry

Yes, we did and really like it. The face plate is not the best quality, but that can easily be replaced as we have done.

RE: I needed to add an extra browser

Edge has a lot of problems. Chrome by far is the best as is FireFox.
