RE: toilet bowl water

I never let the bowl go dry...... with water always in it my seals never get dry, which maintains their ability to seal. Agree. Especially when winterizing. I always put pink in the bowl to keep the seals wet, and lubed Strange that this works for seals but not for dolphins... :D

RE: Trailering

I could say that the OP's post is of little value to me, and I could question why he posted it, ;) but I realize that it was important enough to him to make the post and that makes it worthwhile. Who knows, there might even be a couple other people who find value in it. It's all good. I know for sure that I value the opportunity to make posts with my feelings or questions, and I'm glad that others have the same opportunity.

RE: Reservations at Zion - South Campground

That's great news! Have a nice time there. For me, my favorite memories of Zion are hiking the Narrows (must start early in morning to beat the worst of the crowds) and coasting my bike nearly the entire way back to the CG (the shuttle buses can carry bikes in front).

RE: South Lake Michigan

I have to admit, though, that this might be a crummy time to visit Michigan. Their Covid restrictions have been extended for 6 more months. We didn't go last summer (obviously) and I don't expect we'll go there this summer, either. Looking to head northwesterly instead and find some quiet, lonesome spots in the mountains.

RE: Cybertruck has a yoke

Looks like a DeLorean had intimate relations with a Mars rover, and this is the offspring. ;) It has a fascia that only a Musk could love.

RE: Black tank leaked. What to do?

If it's not rotted, no big deal. It shouldn't get worse unless you were to get it wet again for quite a while, and it sounds like you are eliminating (pun intended) that situation from happening.

RE: What must we do in Colorado?

2. Upper Arkansas River Valley Leadville/Buena Vista/Salida ...Out of Nathrop, take the road up Chalk Creek to St. Elmo, a well preserved ghost town. We'll park there and ride our bikes up to Hancock along the old railroad grade (dirt). From there, we'll take the trail out about 3 miles to the east portal of the Alpine Tunnel (collapsed). If you don't mountain bike, drive up to the trail head and hike out to the tunnel. Several side roads to explore with 4x4 off this road. At Romley, turn left and go up past some old mining ruins... About 3 years ago I drove Road 295 to the trailhead and rode (or should I say 'abused'?) my Trek Pure Sport (a crank-forward comfort bike) up that Alpine Tunnel trail. Yeow, I can't believe I did that! With all the tree roots across the trail, plus rocks and puddles, I still wonder how I didn't bend a rim or two. But it certainly was fun coasting down instead of walking. Beautiful views along there, too. Definitely worth the visit. But I should have had a proper mountain bike.

RE: What must we do in Colorado?

If you're getting CO fishing licenses, have you thought about boondocking at one or more of the state wildlife areas? Free camping and maybe a short stroll to the water. If you get around Pagosa Springs, head up the road toward Wolf Creek Pass and stop at Treasure Falls. Then a couple hundred yards north of that, the overlook gives a fabulous view of the valley below. Back south a bit, you can drive past the East Fork NF CG and follow the dirt road with your Jeep to Silver Falls, it's a pretty drive and a nice waterfall. Oh, and near the top of Wolf Creek Pass there's a road to the west that takes you up to the top and another great view all around. You could probably get hookup campsites in Pagosa and lounge in the hot spring waters while there.

RE: Bear Spray

I have a can of UDAP bear spray. Thankfully I have not had an occasion to test it on a bear. I should mention that it says to avoid storing it in temps above 120 degrees or in a hot vehicle or direct sunlight. I suspect other brands might have similar cautions. If exposed to too high a temp, the can might discharge spontaneously. Imagine trying to camp in an RV that stinks of bear spray! So I store my can in a fridge or cooler when traveling.

RE: How many TT are 7' wide?

Plenty of slimmer TTs being made. They are the lighter weight, shorter TTs though. KZ's Sportsmen Classic series, for example, are 7' wide. Forest River Ibex has some 7'4" models. Coachmen Apex Nano models are 7'6". Scamp and Casita are 6'8" wide. That's just a small sampling.

RE: Trying to decide on whether or not to purchase-DECISION

Primo destinations, such as popular state and national parks, will be hard to get into. Other places should still be reasonably okay.... that's my guess. The pet dilemma might be a more formidable barrier for you, from the sound of it.

RE: Reservation Entry RMNP 2021

Thanks for mentioning that, good to know.

RE: More Pet Food Recalls

RE: Best TT in the western parks?

A fancy new trailer sounds fun. But the family memories of sightseeing, trail hiking, and camping together will be much the same with the old trailer as with a new one. When you say "expandable," do you now have a popup or is it a hybrid (tent ends but otherwise hard-sided)? What is its length? Although tent material knocks a few campgrounds off the list due to bear-related prohibitions, the vast majority of locations would still be possibilities to you. Keep in mind that a new TT will be off-gassing for the first 6 months or so, and these chemicals can make some people's eyes water. If you're buying used, this won't be an issue... but then you'd need to be eagle-eyed when inspecting for possible water damage. My guess is that prices will still be high all this year, but by 2022 we may start to see some changes as new RVers decide to move on to some new, more exciting hobby.

RE: Two Easy Questions (hopefully!)

Different mfrs might make slides somewhat differently, but I'd try it at home a few times; if all seems okay, you're probably good to go. Actually, my easy solution would be to remove the bathroom door and add a curtain. But that won't work for every couple or family.

RE: Unique Situation. What’s My Best Truck Option?

It works. I invest in myself with a lot of tasty food, and my investment mostly comes out the end. ;)

I will have to give that a try! :)

No doubt about it, this is one cool subject. ;)

RE: driving from Ouray to Canyonlands NP

That drive has some beautiful scenery, because you descend to the San Miguel River and then climb up past layers of sandstone to reach a pastoral plateau with grassy land and grazing cattle.

RE: RV At Dealer for 90 Days Now for An Awning Replacement!!!!!

Before I clicked on this, I thought for sure the dealer would turn out to be a Camping World. Surprise, it isn't! There are supply problems for some parts these days, but who knows. You should definitely call the dealer. If you don't like their reason for not getting it done, tell them you're coming to pick it up in X number of days, whether it's fixed or not. They can't make money on work not done.
