RE: Hwy 93 from Missoula to Salmon, ID.

Those aren't switchbacks, just 20 mph signed curves. The radius isn't any tighter than a freeway cloverleaf. On google maps, look at the Streetview. That's good to know. I can do freeway cloverleafs. Thank-you to all the replies. Makes me feel good about taking that route. We like scenic areas.

Hwy 93 from Missoula to Salmon, ID.

We like to take a different route each fall while heading south. This year we are planning on taking Hwy 93 from Missoula, MT to Salmon, ID. I've noticed Google maps shows a couple of areas of several switchbacks on that route. At Salmon, we will continue southeast to I-15 which looks like an easy route. We will be traveling in a 40' motorhome pulling a 20' enclosed car trailer which puts us at 65' total length. Will we have any trouble negotiating those switchbacks or anything else on that route that we should be aware of? Thanks in advance.

RE: Wyoming Vacation June-July 2022

We stayed at an RV park close to Gardiner, MT when we were there a couple of years ago. Don't remember the name. It is less than a mile to the northern entrance of YNP. It was a nice park with very good security. We were in a 40' motorhome with a tow car and able to park the tow at our site.

RE: Class c cover

The small motorhome in my signature stays home all winter. I put a fabric rv cover over it and then cover the roof and the top 3rd of the sides with a tarp. Not taking any chances of having a seam crack and having a roof leak. Everything is cinched down tight and nothing has chafed from wind in the three winters that we have had it.

RE: Traveling now with COVID 2.0 (Delta)

I agree with you dodge guy. We traveled around all of 2020 and all of 2021 and will continue on in 2022.

RE: flexsteel RV electric captain chair

On our Tiffin in the signature, the seats(if I recall) have a 3 or 4 wire harness with a plug disconnect that is right underneath the seat beside the swivel base. Easy disconnect on ours.

RE: Forest Service Campground - First Come, First Serve & hosts

We are in the group that likes FCFS campgrounds. We like to do do spur of the moment or short notice camping trips, so FCFS works good for us. Never had a problem with FCFS sites being reserved. I'd be heading to the nearest regional office if I was told that I had to leave a FCFS site because the host decided that he would reserve it. You'd never know, unless you saw the host place the chairs to hold the spot so it looks as if someone left for a few hours. That's why I said "if I was told" by the host that I had to vacate my site. Oh sorry didn't catch that. There was no mention of vacating sites before you brought it up. The original post(OP)stated that there was an empty FCFS site available when he arrived but he could only stay one night and would have to vacate the site the next day because the host let someone reserve a FCFS site. Because of that, it sounds like the OP didn't stay the one night.

RE: Camping in a high temperature area.

We are in triple digits here in NCW, but we are heading out tomorrow to the top of Sherman Pass(highest pass in WA). There are a few lakes in that area also. The temps up there are supposed to be in the mid to low 90's which is fine with us. It sure beats a 110 degrees or higher at our house in Chelan.

RE: Salt Lake City to Spokane Wa.

I've done both routes many times. Going up through Boise and Tri-cities may be a bit shorter but busy traffic areas, different highways, and as was said, numerous lane changes can be a bit nerve racking. My choice would be to take 15 to Butte and 90 west to Spokane. Prettier drive and very little high traffic areas.

RE: Propane Firepit Restrictions - West Coast

In Wa they have always been allowed in State CG's no matter how bad fires are or what the burn-ban situation is. That's why we bought a PP firepit in the first place. Same here. We have always been able to use our propane fire pit all summer long even during strict burn bans. Ours sits about 15" off the ground and does not get hot underneath. Same as a BBQ.

RE: RV Roof Tape

I've used Eternabond for years and swear by it. Never had a leak on any of the motorhomes I've owned after applying Eternabond. I clean the surface with BrakeClean. It dries in seconds and leaves no residue. I also use a hard roller on the tape after applying it.

RE: Slide out clicks at button, doesn't move

I've had this happen a couple of times on my "electric" slides. Both times, for an unknown reason, the brake lever on the motor had moved to the lock position. This lever is on the back of the motor and it will slide about a 1/4 inch to one side if pushed firmly. This unlocked the motor both times and the slide worked normally after that. After I ran the slide in and out a couple of times, I put the brake lever back into the original position. Otherwise, the slide would move out freely on its own. I hope I explained that right. You have it backwards. The LOCK TAB is supposed to be in the LOCK position. You UNLOCK the TAB to get the motor free to manually move the room or motor. If you have it in the UNLOCK position the motor is "free" and the room will creep out from fully retracted. Doug You are correct Doug...I figured that I didn't explain it correctly:D

RE: 2006 Hurricane is this a great deal or a big headache

You’re right . . . They’re not junk . . . They’re Garbage Well, I guess Tiffins are junk too since they're now owned by Thor! I agree. Our 2003 Tiffin has been absolutely trouble free. With that said, I wouldn't buy a new one now that Thor bought them out.

RE: Indoor cat

We are in a motorhome. Our cat hides under the recliner/sofa when we are traveling and no doubt sleeping. When we park she hops up on the dash and will lay there for hours just watching what is going on outside. If you are in a trailer or camper I would suggest having some kind of shelf or area where your cat can lie down and look out a window. They seem to be very content doing that. We do put our cat on a harness and leash occasionally and take her for short walks, but she is usually happy just being able to look out the window.

RE: Cost to repair or replace half a windshield?

I've been quoted about $1200 to replace a right or left half windshield from 2 different companies. That's if no insurance is involved.

RE: Indio, CA or Yuma, AZ Casino parking

Went to Mexico last Wednesday and the Q was not allowing Overnight parking. There were a couple of rigs there but they were not in the dirt overnight parking area.
