RE: Southern Ca to Coeur d’Alene Idaho

Sawtooth area and Salmon River, ID 75, 21, 55 to US95 are phenomenal areas. Way off the beaten path! Some of the best scenery, hiking, fishing, hot springs, etc. in the region. Craters of the Moon should not be missed! "Unique" barely starts the description!

RE: Lights

I've been in lighting 40+ years. Cree is far from the only good brand. LEDs rarely fail, but their associated gear fails frequently. If one dot of a set fails replace the unit. If all the dots blink then check the wires!

RE: good Sam VS AARP.

So I guess I'll discount all the opinions based on politics. You don't like a group fine. That has nothing to do with whether they're a good deal, and actually prevents you from knowing either way.

RE: Smart Light Bulbs

"Smart Lamps" is a category, not a single product. Almost all the answers will depend on the exact product you pick. So choose wisely!

RE: Glacier National Park to Yellowstone National Park.

Glacier is 3 or 5 different parks. Don't limit yourself!

RE: Missoula, MT to Columbia Falls and W Glacier

I took US2 from Glacier to Spokane last summer. Parts over the Idaho border are rougher than preferred. Passes are reasonable. There are a few things along the way to relieve the boredom. Cabinet Mountains, rivers and lakes galore, cedar groves and more.

RE: Oregon or what to do after Glacier

All good suggestions above. I'll add San Juan Islands, Whidbey Island, Port Angeles and the Dungeness Spit. Whale watching, sea and mountains together quaint history, native culture. Something for everyone!

RE: Solar wiring through vent, how to seal hole in vent line

"lacking skill or training" is hardly an insult unless the target is a professional. To my ears your own attack is unwarranted and your advise better taken than given. I understand your sensitivity and wish to keep things civil but you may have gone too far. Running wires down the vent is well known and common with DIY and cable installers, but hardly a top quality method.

RE: Looking For Campground Near Wallace Idaho

There are a few NFS campgrounds along I-90. My fav is Cabin Creek (very quiet,) though it's more like 35 miles from Wallace. NO hookups in any of them as far as I recall.

RE: Yellowstone / Old Faithful area

A guide book for free! Maybe we should have a sticky of posts like that for the Major sights.

RE: water heater

There was a bad run of controller boards. Get a dealer to check your board and install a replacement. (30 min job all told) A good shop will do all the warranty paperwork for you. (Thanks Xtreme RV Idaho)

RE: Yellowstone / Old Faithful area

Last June we did several days leaving the trailer in W Yellowstone, and driving in. +1 to all above. There is beauty and wonder in every foot of the park! Don't hurry, enjoy where you are while going somewhere just as great.

RE: Looking for under-cab LED panel - milky shade

I recommend you go with a strip or ribbon type. LEDs are more than just energy savings, they are fundamentally different so let you do entirely different things. Under a kitchen cabinet you want light spread out as much as possible. As you say, bulky fixtures aren't any good either. Tuck it in carefully and you'll see better no matter how bright or dim the fixture. You can buy whatever cheapy ribbon, or research some really bright stuff. I found some in with Home Depot Xmas lights! How does 1000 lumens per foot sound? This site has it all and at reasonable prices. https://www.flexfireleds.com/categories/LED-Flexible-strips/High-Intensity-UltraBright-LED-Strips/ They also have mounting strips and diffusers. And stick with the lumen output rather than comparing to incandescent wattage. There really isn't any reliable conversion anymore. Commercial products are routinely 120 l/w but sometimes half that. Your 40W bulb may put out 400 lumens, but about 250 leaves the fixture. Does it all go where you want it to go?

RE: Visiting Glacier, Yellowstone and Grand Teton Ntl Pk,s

So what do you like? Hikes, views, animals, camping style, travel style, personal goals, shopping, art, history, science, privacy, meeting people... Specifics in questions will get you specific answers. There is no 'best'

RE: Auxillary Fuel Tank ?

The digressions on bio tanks are amusing. I'm sure we all wish for a more convenient solution. Don't we all drag our own private facilities along with us?

RE: RV Camp Suggtions around Burley Id. 84 hiway area?

Last summer we stayed a night in American Falls at a marina/campground. Not very close, but a was the best we could find. Under new owners so don't let old reviews throw you. We did consider Minidoka Wildlife Refuge. No hookups but not too far off the path. If you haven't seen it Craters of the Moon is a must! Nothing like it!!

RE: Will any portable compressor handle 95 psi?

Even my Black & Decker does far more than that. 165PSI if memory serves. It also does high volume/low pressure for inflatable toys.

RE: 12 volt diming light switch

Lots of dimmer types out there. Can you be more specific?

RE: Adding built in USB ports

Do you have a part number for the usb outlet? Was wondering how thin it is because I would love to put one on the bottom side of a cabinet but only have 3/4" once I cut the hole. Everything I've seen is 1.5" or more. You can use a surface box if sticking out several inches is OK.

RE: Adding built in USB ports

I put one by my radio & TV using the same 12V. Most of my circuits are very far under their fuse capacity so adding a few USB wont' harm anything. I put 2 more the bed sides. My bedside lights have a switch so they have 12V as well.
