RE: 4-Corners

We enjoyed it. Everyone is right, there's a small fee to get in and there's not a whole lot in the surrounding area. I wouldn't make a trip just to see it, but I would deviate from a route to go. It's unique- where else can you be in 4 states at once? (Ignoring the fact that the marker may be slightly off position, the idea is there.) We went and will likely stop again if we pass near by. This pretty much sums up our experience as well. As long as you’re not going too far out of your way, why not?

RE: Tailgate Step Suggestions?

I bought the Amp Research and couldnt be happier. There are cheaper alternatives, (Bestop) but i didnt care for how low it hangs when not in use. The Amp Research was on sale when i bought it and there was a rebate. Still pricey for a step, but i think it is one of the better options out there.

RE: Yellowstone 2020

Hi, we were in Yellowstone in July of this year (entered through the north entrance). While we got to see everything we wanted with one exception, the park was very crowded. Parking is definitely st a premium, and i couldnt imagine trying to get a spot with anything other than a small vehicle. The larger spaces are there, just limited. The last previous time I had been there was about 30 years ago. It was quite how you described it. We tent camped and got sites with no reservations. Not so much anymore! Id suggest renting a car so you make sure you can see everything you want.

RE: 4 year old Forest River vent covers already failed

The Maxxair covers were the first thing i installed on my last 3 RVs. I never had a problem with any of them, and it allows me to keep the vents open 24/7. Any plastic will eventually fail due to sun exposure, but ive had these for up to 12 years without a problem. Replacing the current lids is easy. Unscrew the lifting mechanism form the vent,slide it off the vent lid. Go on the roof, flip the lid up and remove. Thats it! Installation is reverse.

RE: Repairs and Upgrades

Yup, it’s amazing how unhandy some people can be. Keeps others receiving a paycheck, though!

RE: RV Covers Experiences

Our Adco cover is 8 years old and on its second TT. It now has a few thin spots where I didn’t pad correctly. May have to replace it next year, but I think I got my money’s worth. When we traded our previous tt in at 6 yo, it still looked new. I only cover in the winter.

RE: leaking grease seal.

Wow, only three posts to get this off topic! Yes, there is a good chance the brakes have been contaminated eith grease. No matter how you try, youll never get all the grease off the brakes. Definitely have them replaced. Yep. Lots of folks have a problem with reading comprehension. They read things that are just not there. The post was about question brakes shoes. Not Wheel bearings.Not off topic, and no problem with reading comprehension. The grease on the brakes comes from the wheel bearings. On axles with EZ lube hubs, this is a common occurance. Hence my question. If the OP has EZlube hubs, and uses this feature, then that is most likely the reason he is now probably facing a big bill. True, grease seals can just fail... But it happens a lot more often when using the EZlube feature. Good info IMO and very helpful post. If I were the OP I would want to know how my brakes got grease on them. If I was the OP and wanted to know how grease was leaking out of the hub (no one actually concluded the brakes had grease on them yet) i would ask the mechanic working on it instead of an opinion based on conjecture. Even if I tried, I could not care less what a poster like you would or wouldn't do. You want to berate others responses and argue and are of no real use here and are one of those "people" who don't make this forum a better place. As long as people's responses are within the forum guidelines and rules, they can post anything they want - whether you think they're on-subject or not. Nowhere in my post did I berate anyone. Grow up.

RE: Custer SP?

I can’t comment on camping in the park, but can vouch for it being a great home base for lots of things to do. Enjoy!

RE: .

I think there is enough "graffiti", in-your-face advertising everywhere. No thank-you! But is anyone old enough on these forums to remember when the Pall Mall tobacco advertisers use to go around and offer to paint barns for free, provided they were allowed to paint the side with their Pall Mall cigarette advertisement? You don't see that very much any more today. There is still one old barn not too far from where I live that still has the barn with that advertisement. It's encouraging to know, that.. way back then ... at least ... they used long-lasting paint! No thanks! Not on my RV! Remember the VW bugs painted to advertise Kool cigaretttes?

RE: Wheel Bearings

can,t hurt and should not be a big expense. p.s a new seal also and no china bearings put back in.Well, that may be true, but I have read of people that had immediate issues after having their bearings replaced/repacked. My thought on things that can be mal-adjusted when installed is usually: "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." Replacing or cleaning/repacking and installing wheel bearings is probably one of the easiest things that can be done (mechanically). Whoever can’t handle this job has no business owning a wrench.

RE: Current crop of SUV'S

Why do they call them SUV'S when then vast majority of them are glorified station wagons? To me a SUV is a truck based full frame vehicle. Got to love marketing. Who cares what they call them or what the term means to you? As far as marketing, what about BMWs SAV? Or Nissan starting the 4-door sport coupe (when coupe by definition had been 2 doors)? As far as small SUVs, CUVs, or whatever you want to call them, I think they’re great! They hold plenty of cargo, have a comfortable ride, get good mpg (relative to what you consider an SUV), and if equipped with 4 or AWD, rival any full size suv on the road in bad weather. I recently bought an Acura RDX. Wanted a 2-door, but my wife wasn’t going to give up her coupe (2-door), we needed a 4-door, and the pickup is too big for general city driving. Seriously looked at a Macan, but it was too small, and I couldn’t get past the high maintenance (30,000 mile spark plug changes went out in the 70’s Porsche!). The RDX is a hoot to drive, comfortable as can be, and sticks to the road like glue. Can’t wait to try the AWD in the snow! Do I stress over it not being a “true SUV? Nah.

RE: Kitty litter: How do you dispose of it while on the road?

Save your Amazon boxes. Put the trash inside the Amazon boxes. Leave out. Soon the box is gone. The porch pirates will be soooooooooooooooo disappointed!!!! :B

RE: winterizing

You ought to hear the air coming out somewhere, even if it is going into the tank. I’d winterize with antifreeze, like today, since temps may hit single digits in parts on NJ tonight.

RE: Just curious?

Airstream would be the only high dollar RV that is giving you superior quality for the extra money. Lance and Arctic Fox are noted to having pretty good quality for a bit more on the price tag. Never looked at an Arctic Fox, but we did look at several Lance trailers. They all had the same cheap a$$ components as every other trailer out there.

RE: Repair and epdm roof

I would fill the holes with dicor then cover with a piece of Eternabond. I wouldnt worry about dabs of tape scattered on the roof, keeping out water would be my top priority.

RE: Water Usage

Back in my youth, our scout troop always had that pot of rinse water boiling to give the dishes just washed by young boys a scalding rinse for hygienic reasons. Yup, I remember those days!:B
