RE: Changing air filter

What type of vehicle chassis is it on, Ford E450 or Chevrolet, or a Peterbuilt, that helps members here guide you on how to replace the air filer. navegatorTrue, if it's a E450 with the V-10, it's a very simple 2 minute job, I forget the cost at WalMart, but I believe it's less than $20 IIRC, certainly NOT a $75 job, (unless perhaps you have a K&N filter).At 11,000 mi., you must be driving all Dry, dusty,dirt roads. :h

RE: Teton NP and Jackson, WY

Any recommendations for a campground near these areas that won't bankrupt me? Both Gros Ventre and Signal Mountain look promising. Both have electric, dump and water available. Private RV parks are very expensive. Thanks.Only D loop in Gros Ventre has electric, and we loved it. Waking to this, was a definite plus at Gros Ventre, http://images55.fotki.com/v507/photos/7/1474187/13835292/photo48-vi.jpg height=450 width=600

RE: Hot water odor only, cold is ok

Try This Couple options hereUmm, I don't think so, that's a Black Tank rinsing tool, the one j-d posted is the correct one, you can also get it at Camping World, or almost any RV dealer, it simply called an, RV Water Heater Tank Rinser

RE: Oven won't light but pilot will.

If the pilot is lit, then turning the knob to desired temp should light the oven, it may take a minute or 2. I have no idea what the back burner has to do with it, unless it's just to ensure that air is out of the line.

RE: In RV park. Now have car to drive. Disconnect RV battery?

1. Are you camping with hookups, (electric) ? If so, you don't have to do anything, the converter that charges your house batteries, should also be charging your chassis battery, (at least mine does).

RE: Food & Traveling

Thanks for your responses, we misunderstood about refrigerator use while traveling, good news, and you all were a great help, this is a big learning process for us. BB_TX, good idea to pre-cool. I think husband has a little fear of propane, he has seen some propane fires.You can't live your life in fear of what "might" happen, or you'll have no life at all.

RE: In general, when do schools start classes?

I think most Oregon schools start up just after Labor Day but I don't keep up on things much anymore ... I do know that camping in Oregon has been easier/better after Labor Day.X-2 in my area of Va. right after labor day, but it varies by State, county, even city.

RE: Planning Yellowstone/Teton Trip (from Iowa)

When are you going, & do you really need full hookups? Madison is a nice Campground, but no hookups, there is a VERY nice little CG on the West Side, just north of West Yellowstone, called Bakers Hole, some sites have electric, there is a water fill, but no showers or dump station,both are available in town. If you absolutely must have full hookups, most people swear by Grizzly RV Park in W. Yellowstone. IF you are going to stay at one CG, be prepared to do some serious driving, Yellowstone is huge. Your time is subjective 5 days + 2 days, yes that will work, but you will probably wish you had more time, our first time, we spent 9 days in Yellowstone and a day trip down to the Tetons, last year we spent 10 days in Yellowstone and 4 days in the Tetons at Gros Ventre CG, D loop has electric.

RE: RV parks/camp grounds

For economy state parks offer the most bang for the buck generally speaking. Everything else is semantics.I imagine this would depend on the state, I know in Va. I get a much better deal at COE CG's than at the State Park CG's & they are as good or better CG's. As far as a fixed budget, Passport America works well for us, it gives you a 50% discount at nearly 2000 CG's , we also use Good Sams,which gets you 10%, many private CG's give a discount for AARP,Military, AAA, we also have the America the Beautiful Senior Pass, which is good for 50% at many National Parks, National Forests, COE,TVA & BLM land, (which there is virtually None in the east but lots of it in the West).

RE: Beware of Falling Rocks - WTH

I have never seen a deer cross at the designated crossing area. What's up with that?The 2 deer that hit my pickup, weren't crossing at a sign either, that's right, They hit me, right in the side. :S

RE: Beware of Falling Rocks - WTH

It can & does happen more often than we as individuals see, hence the recent problem at Zion, and the I-40 slide,that Homer referenced, but most are much smaller, but a basketball sized rock coming off the side of a mountain will put a hell of a hole in an aluminum or fiberglass skinned RV. There is really not much you can do, except keep your eyes open, and be aware of the possibility. I have seen Many rocks that have fallen, luckily, they were all on the shoulder. I agree with others in saying that you have a far better chance of hitting something off another vehicle, like the semi wheel, (tire & Rim) I hit with a company van near Pittsburgh, or the many battery battery box covers i've seen laying in the road, or the entire fiberglass (or plastic} front bumper cover laying in the fast lane on I-95. Just be careful.And let's not forget the multitude of Goodyear Gators out there.

RE: Oregon 199 to crescent city, ca

Thought I had this all figured out.. but now I learn 199 probably isn't a good road for 40foot plus tow... We are trying to get from Ashland, ore area to Brookings... Think we'll have to drive up i-5 to catch 42 and cut over at Bandon... Any other suggestions?? ThanksYes, stick with 199, nothing wrong with it, I don't know who told you not to take it, but they either don't know how to drive, or are seriously paranoid, as cpaulsen said, truckers use it every day.

RE: House-sized boulder blocks highway in Zion National Park

By Friday night it had been broken up and moved out of the way to open the road up.It's gonna take more than just removing the rock(s) to safely re-open the road, the road needs major repair, as well as ensuring the rest of the hillside is stable.

RE: Wave of the Future?

Durn expensive place. My family goes. that's $107.00 per night. A good place to stay away from.X-2, been across the country a couple time, have never heard of being charged extra for slides, sounds worse than a KOA, definitely have to bypass this one. :R

RE: Schenectady to Byron NY on 20 vs. I-90...Question

Great road, if you don't want to get anywhere very fast, speed limits in the many small towns are anywhere from 20-35 mph, coupled with a million stop lights, (only a slight exaggeration), if you really want to get from point A to Point B in this century, pay the tolls & move on.
