RE: In bed diesel tanks

I considered a replacement tank before I bought my aux tank. The replacement would be nice to not take room up in the bed, but I just couldn't justify the cost ($1300 +) to add less than 20 gallons. I spent less than that on my RDS and added 60 gallons. I did the inbed tank for the same reason you did, less cost per added gal. I've never regretted doing so

RE: In bed diesel tanks

I don't understand the thinking that filling an extra tank and not using the fuel right away is wasting money. It will be used sometime. Or do you just like stopping into your favorite station? Maybe a cute little clerk? As someone said if money is that tight you probably shouldn't be traveling

RE: Black Hills suggestions

Take the bus tours: Rushmore and Crazy horse is one and the Black Hills in another. What movie was filmed in the Black Hills? I think your remembering Dances With Wolfs. A film site is off the Spearfish Canyon Drive. Wife and I took our picture with the sign marking it way back in 95

RE: In bed diesel tanks

I have a TransferFlo 50 gal in bed. I've had this tank for 17 years and it's more than paid for itself. When I changed it from the 02 to the 07 I had to buy a new brain to get the auto transfer to work. I have a brother who was delivering RVs for awhile. With his truck I used an electric pump with a switch in the cab and a small flashing multi colored LED light that was on when the pump was on. He couldn't forget to turn the pump off. Plus I wired it so that it was switched power. I also installed a fuel gauge in the cab for him

RE: Chipmunks

The water bucket, ramp and sunflower seeds method works fantastic. A few years ago our yard was over run with chipmunks, we live in the woods. In 2 months time it took care of 70 of them

RE: Cascade, ID to Yellow Pine, ID

I looked at that route. I'm curious did the locals recommend doing a circle tour of the area? McCall to Cascade to Yellow Pine then NF-412/E.Fork rd back to McCall?

RE: Canada/US Border still shut...

It's 2 Model T roadster bodies. They won't qualify as essential nor would the travel to get them. As far as shipping I have other things bought in Mt. & N.D. and will do just one trip. My trailer for hauling these things has 29" of bed space

RE: Canada/US Border still shut...

I have an item bought and paid for in Feb in Saskatchewan. I was supposed to pick it up 2 wks ago. But because of the closing I'm in limbo as too when that can happen

RE: Frost free hydrant for potable water

Lynnmor, sounds as though someone put a short one in. They make them as long as 9 ft. If you end up later digging it out I'd certainly think about a taller one

I think you're referring to the NSBU switch

RE: Frost free hydrant for potable water

A tip for keeping the drain hole open. First use a street L on the drain hole and a short nipple pointed down. Then use a piece of 4 or 5" PVC pipe, cut a slot the width of the supply line so that if fits over it then add a reducer to the PVC to get it to the diameter of the upright faucet line, seal it to that line with plumbers rope or something similar and you won't get any dirt or stone clogging the drain hole

RE: Are Travel Trailers selling at all right now?

Not a TT but a 5er. Last fall we bought a newer unit and a week ago we sold the older one which I'd only had 2 yrs. Sold price was only 7% less than I paid. It all depends on price, condition and buyers desire

RE: Rewiring a landscape trailer

Don't use the Scotch Locks. They are good at cutting the wire and you end up having to do it all over again. Solder and shrink wrap. You could also use a waterproof junction box. This would be a bit more that you need but gives you an idea of what I'm referring too. https://www.ebay.com/itm/1-Trailer-Wiring-cord-Junction-Box-7-pole-Weatherproof-COLOR-CODED-w-hardware/301597415764?hash=item46389b5954:g:BdQAAOSwX6VTyoVE:sc:USPSFirstClass!49445!US!-1

RE: Lewiston to Lolo pass highway 12 road questions

As someone already mentioned, downshift when descending rather than using brakes when possible. We just did that complete route in late June. It's beautiful area one not to hurry through. We found a nice and certainly inexpensive campground. It's the Pink House Recreation area 38 miles east of Lewiston right on the Clearwater River. It's $9 a night w/full hookups for seniors and a 15 day maximum stay. https://thedyrt.com/camping/idaho/pink-house-recreation-site

RE: Full-time and don't/didn't like it?

Golf..... 'Cow Pasture Pool' That reminds me of my Dad. He always called it that. Were he still with us he'd be 111 this year but has been gone since 81

RE: Spearfish, SD

While in Spearfish drive Spearfish Canyon. I don't know if markers would still be there but much of Dances With Wolfs was filmed in the canyon and the site was marked years ago. Back in the late 90's Costner had a lodge/bar nearby
