RE: Are other drivers killing your RV experience?

It's always a fun time when the other driver on an entrance ramp doesn't remember what YIELD means!! Esp when there is an 18 wheeler or double along side you!! Pretty regular occurrence even out here in the "wide open wild west"!!!!!

RE: 2020 Heritage Glen HL grey tank size(s)?

Forrman, get a "turkey oil pump", uses D batts, and will pump out a blue jug in 2 or 3 mins!! Fairly cheap, easy to use!! https://www.amazon.com/CHARD-FOP-23-Draining-Outdoor-Fryers/dp/B00HCC2L6A/ref=asc_df_B00HCC2L6A/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=198100862572&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=16632446496744482547&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=1027622&hvtargid=pla-392675885888&psc=1

RE: Hell's Canyon and region

Yes, it is a good 2 lane paved road mostly, last time down(2 yrs ago), there was a bit of construction in the first few miles. There are twists and turns, not too bad, no terrible climbs or descents. Only thing to be watched is that the road is popular with motorcyclists and some spandex mafia (bikers!!) so you need to be aware esp on curves. Had no problems with a 34' trailer.

RE: Hell's Canyon and region

Wallowa is a good spot for a base camp. You can head to Hells Canyon via Imnaha, great views, and lookout tower (open??). Also head into Nat Forest from Joseph on the Hells Canyon Scenic Loop down to the Snake at Copperfield. Nice drive, NF campgrounds along the way if you want to move around.

RE: Oregon State Parks to add surcharge

AFHauler, the $5 fee is only when making a reservation for non-residents. Many states have such. It is not added to the daily camping charge. Maybe a minor difference, but not like OR adding up to 30% per day for non-residents!! I believe that when we went into BC a few years ago, we had to pay non-resident fees at both Nat Parks and BC Provincial Parks.

RE: Oregon State Parks to add surcharge

ksg5000, WA parks DO NOT (at this time!!) charge "extra" to non-residents!! They have various levels according to services and seasons. There is a charge for the "Discover Pass" to access day use areas and some other parks, but it is not charged for or required when paying for a campsite. If you are an oldie, you probably remember the fee wars of the '70s and early '80s when a whole bunch of states charged extra for non-residents. It was Oregon that started the war!!!

RE: Hughes 30 amp surge protector

We have a 30A hard wired Hughes Watchdog with bluetooth. Works great, is an EMS type. On recent 4 week trip, it did it's job on low voltages, disconnecting and sending warning. Reconnect without any yelling and screaming!! Feel very satisified with purchase!! Hughes has a warranty, not lifetime, but you can purchase a module if it blows for very little $$$'s and simply replace yourself. Don't have to send into them for "repair" or warranty.

RE: Firman W02981- Any feedback?

Very good genny, have had one for aboot a year and half. Slight use, solar has been great, but runs AC when necc, and actually pretty quiet. I would say a bit less noise than our 2K Champion when running under a load. Good buy!! Firman has been very helpful with questions (no problems!!) and will send high altitude jet kits if requested.

RE: Reese head loose on shank

Where in OR are you, I have shims and bolts.

RE: Reese head loose on shank

There should be 2 steel shims that fit inside the head with matching holes for the bolts to the shank. They are for such a problem. From installation guide: "OPTIONAL SHIM KIT Use the shim provided when needed to fill any gap between the Weight Distributing Head shown below and the hitch bar used in the particular application. It is easier to install the shim from the top down as shown on the following page. In doing so, you will encounter one of three scenarios: 1. Shim will go all the way down to line up with the bottom hole. If this is the case, use the entire shim in the gap. Note: It is conceivable that in some rare combinations, two shims could be used. In these cases, contact Customer Service at 800-632-3290 or 800-428-7303 for a free additional shim service kit #58207. 2. Shim will not begin to fit between the head and hitch bar. If this is the case, discard shim and continue installation. The existing gap is acceptable 3. Shim will not go in far enough to reach bottom hole. If this is the case, cut shim in half and use only the top half for the top bolt. Discard bottom half of shim"

RE: Keystone 22RBS slide topper

Don't have a Keystone, but I would put the body rail up as high as the roof line allows. More slope, the better. Some trailers (like our old Jayco) have a drip rail mounted just above the slide. If you have that, you could remove and put the awning rail where that was. But, I think the best place is just below the roof drip mldg. There is sufficient construction in that area to attach to and, again, gets the most slope out of the awning fabric.

RE: Reese Trunnion Questions??

Barney: One reason for change is tonque weight. The 1200# bars are "maxed" out, in my opinion. But main reason is excess wear in in the hitch head where the bars fit. On my second head and decided to make the change. Since Reese started making the heads (and whatever!!) in China, and going away from the spring clip style bar retention, the head has worn terribly. Creates a change in the DualCam adjustment over time. So "new" stuff and readustment is no big deal for me!! To anyone who is going to say I should lube, I DO, every trip. I've used moly lube, reg grease, a mix of gear oil and moly. Nothing has stopped the wear. The head metal is junk. PERIOD!!! So I'll be rehitching after this weekend trip to the E OR mountains. Thanks for responses on the pins. But intersting that the holes in the trunnion are larger than the roll pins!! Not worn either!!!

Reese Trunnion Questions??

After 12 yrs of towing with a "round" bar DC, I am heading over to the "dark" side!!! found a super deal on a trunnion setup. Wasn't used with DC, came with a friction sway control (YUK!!). In very good shape, very little wear on the pivot points. A few long trips before prev owner went to a class A. QUESTION: Bars are roll pinned to the trunnions. There is some play in the connection. My past recollection of these was a bolt and jam nut holding the bar into the trunnion. Age of the stuff is aboot 6 yrs by the tags on the head. Is the slight side to side play something to consider, and change to bolt and nut??? Am aware of the "top" mount coupler occasional problems, will go to a tall ball if needed. Head is the newer, raised ball style. One more trip on the old "roundy" and then start the install and adjustment mess!!

RE: Mountain west NF campgrounds

Posted over on the "other" site also!! Best move at this time is to go to the forest web site of the one or ones you are interested. They will have info and usually a pdf which shows open campgrounds and recreation sites at the time. For example: https://www.fs.usda.gov/Internet/FSE...eprd737154.pdf
