RE: How do YOU start your campfire?

Reading this reminds me of why I try to stay away from RV parks and campgrounds. :) ************* I use twigs and a little paper and some shreds of cardboard if available under kindling and then some larger logs. The pieces of Duraflame logs or better yet some pieces of fatwood are nice to have as a backup when it's damp out. In a pinch potato chips will burn pretty hot for a few minutes. Ya, we don`t like the boring people anyway! ;)

RE: Concern with attaching bike rack to TT bumper

thule roof of tow vehicle... PAT hit it -- why not put the bikes on the roof of the Excursion? That is how we do it -- we put our grownup bikes and my oldest boy's 24" wheel mountain bike on the roof of the Suburban in Thule sidearm racks, and find a spot to stash the smaller bikes in the trailer. I have had roof mounted bike racks and while they are a very good option, along with ladder mount racks, it is not attractive for individuals near or of retirement age as high lifting of the bikes can be problematic...just a fact of life and not meant to be negative towards older people as I highly encourage all people to get into cycling :) Even those of us not anywhere near retirement age don`t want to lift 4 bikes up on top of any van/SUV!

RE: Concern with attaching bike rack to TT bumper

I have a similar setup to Harley4275. I installed 2 stainless eye bolts through the back wall. they go through the vertical wall stud and the horizontal bunk stud. I also used a piece of angle bracket to spread the load out along the bunk stud. http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y211/gustafson/100_6084.jpg These support quite a bit of weight! I just cinch the ratchet straps before I put the bikes on. http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y211/gustafson/100_6085.jpg I use a bolt on 2" receiver. my bumper is fully welded and is the thicker steel bumper. I didn`t have it yet in this pic, but I have a set bolt that I tighten down against the bike rack to stop any up/down movement. this combined with the ratchet straps make for a very secure assembly! I also have a rear view camera that I can watch the bikes if they do move, which they never have! http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y211/gustafson/100_6086.jpg This setup has been to Mackinaw city, the Northwoods in WI. and all places in between. even if you bolt/weld a full receiver to the frame you still need to stop the bouncing the bikes/rack take as this is what destroys bike racks, bumpers and receivers.

RE: Dirty roof-what are you guys using to clean?

I use some soap and water and a soft brush. Roof stays clean and I have very little black streaks if any. I can get up on my roof and walk on it.

RE: Concern with attaching bike rack to TT bumper

I have been hauling 4 bikes on the back of my TT for about 6 years now. The key is to take the bounce out of the rack. When you go through a dip in the road if you don't have the rack secure, it will bounce extremely bad! I have mine setup so that the bumper/reciever doesn't support all the weight. I have a rear view camera and can watch the bikes. Very little movement. Straps never come loose and my bumper and welds are still perfect! I'll post a pic later of my setup.

RE: Pigeon Forge, Run down and dirty?

I respect differences of opinion among Rvers but to me, an area like that is everything I don't want when I go for a trip in the RV. I want nature, peaceful, and ranger programs about the natural features or history of the area, not touristy stuff. It is a place I have to get through in order to get into the national park. x2 for us too There are many people that want to do the mini golf, shopping for shot glasses, and getting a bright t-shirt thing and call it a vacation. Those people will love what PF and GB have become. Yep - that's a very good summation. We now use a side route to bypass a lot of that and go directly to lesser visited parts of the National Park most of the time. - Randy I do agree, but I like it both ways. I like the history and natural features of the area. if we want touristy then we hit the towns (anywhere USA).

RE: Pigeon Forge, Run down and dirty?

We stay about 10 miles east of Gatlinburg at Smoky Bear Campground - it is definitely clean. Was there about a month ago, yes, PF is a little less than modern. It is like Panama City Beach - reminiscent of the 50s tourist trap - but not dirty at all, just not modern. Exactly!

RE: Pigeon Forge, Run down and dirty?

Not so much dirty, just some places on the strip are older. And some show it more than others. If you go to G-burg and compare that to Pigeon forge then yes it seems dirty, G-burg is a very nice/clean town.

RE: Ball bearings!!

You have to remember, that a BJ will have some play as they age and can still be in spec. I would have someone give you a second opinion.

RE: Replaced tires on TV, now feels like driving on ice

The tires will require a few hundred miles to break them in (heat cycle). this makes the tires less squirmy! look up new tire squirm or heat cycle and you`ll see this is common with many new tires.

RE: In repair shop

Even though it`s under warranty some thing aren`t worth taking in for repair! unless it`s major it`s not worth the hassle. an RV`er should be able to do repairs on their own, it`s almost a requirement.

RE: Ball bearings!!

Just be prepared to have to replace the hubs. they need to be removed to do the BJ`s. and in the process may be destroyed doing so. I`ve saved a few, but replaced more while doing a set of BJ`s!

RE: Rear View Safety Backup Camera System Questions

That looks like a nice system. looks like decent quality. where would you mount a 7" monitor though?

RE: Glacier Nat'l Park

Great. thanks for the link. we were there in Aug. 2005. there was virtually no snow up there! very little on the hike to Hidden Lake. even on the tops of the mountains had very little snow. the Glaciers are almost all gone! I wish they wouldn`t though. One of my favorite places!
