RE: La Veta Pass (Colorado) with old and heavy RV?

Thanks! The Poncho Springs recommendation seems lower (9000’) and less grade! Still not sure if our 99 V10 Triton can support the lack of oxygen (my husband’s concern). Do you know how the road conditions are there…good pavement, wide lanes, passing lanes, not too many sharp curves, etc? Also any info on how we can easily see road grades would be awesome! I keep looking them up road by road, pass by pass. Or use google maps to see elevation numbers (which I need a magnifying glass to read on my phone!). The roads from Poncha Springs up to Denver are in good shape and do have some passing lanes. We drive that road regularly with our 5th wheel and cut off to Colorado Springs. The elevation is partly important but how fast you have to climb and descend on grade is a big factor. LaVeta Pass from the west is not a real steep climb it is long and gradual. Overall it is not a hard pass to cross and road is good from Great Sand Dunes to I-25.

RE: Toilet Fills with Water Pump On

The valve on my toilet did something similar. I temporarily fixed it by installing a sharkbite shutoff in the line behind the toilet. Then you can fill the toilet as needed by opening and closing the valve without disrupting the water supply elsewhere.

RE: Ranger Lakes CG Colorado

We have been there and some of our friends go every year. The campground is good with electric only and water to fill you fresh tank. There is no dump station right there. The fishing is good and stocked with 8-10" regularly. You also have a good chance of seeing lots of wildlife. The last time there we saw deer, moose, and a bear in the area. You do need to make reservations ASAP. ADD: I have fished Lake Agnes and it is a beautiful lake as the video tagged below by BradW. It is definitely a challenging hike to get there but well worth it. You do have to be used to the elevation and in decent shape to attempt it as the lake sits over 10,000 feet.

RE: Dicor self leveling lap sealant caused roof to ripple

I had the same thing happen. There are 2 types of TPO roof and the newer one with a smooth surface on the underside will ripple with Dicor 500 series. You need to use the Ultra Dicor and solvent to clean with before applying. I used this and no problems. There is a You tube video on how to tell the difference in type of roof you have.

RE: New Mattress

We have this one in our RV and a full king at home and love them both. We got them on Amazon and have had the 12" one in our RV for 4 years and no sign of breaking down. DynastyMattress 10-inch CoolBreeze Gel RV Memory Foam Mattress (King RV)

RE: Fridge lock

X2 This is a good product and we have the Insignia fridge also. The Fridge Fixer is what we use. Fridge Fixer on Amazon A bit pricey but a great product. Our new RV came with Insignia appliances and the fridge does not have handles that can be used with a strap.

RE: Hall county park or Mormon Island SRA, Nebraska

We have stayed at Mormon Island quite a few times since we moved to CO. We lived in Grand Island and the area for quite a few years and it is a good campground. They have expanded to the 2nd lake and the sites on lake 2 are a bit larger. You should get a reservation as they only have a couple of first come sites. Mormon Island has easier access to I-80 and more open areas. They do have a good dump station and water available for filling you fresh water tank.

RE: Route from Grand Island to Alliance NE-Diesel/Campsites

You shouldn't have any trouble as almost all of the small towns have diesel as this is ranch country. I lived in NE almost all of my life and we fished that part of the state a lot and never had trouble finding fuel.

RE: Yummy!

I traded in our old 5th wheel in March. When I told the dealer that I had dumped all the tanks, the comment was "good, thank you because very few do that".
