RE: Yellowstone Questions

Thanks all the insight, we do have an RV, but at 2000 miles each way, we just don't have the vacation time to take the RV. All that time across the midwest would east up all our time. We've debated renting an RV vs a hotel, but will probably end up in a hotel

Yellowstone Questions

Hope y'all don't mind me posting this, but there seems to be lots of knowledge on here of that area.. We are looking at a trip to Yellowstone, and unfortunately with the vast amount of land between Georgia and Yellowstone, we will have to fly due to limited vacation time. What are the advantages/disadvantages of staying in the park vs outside the park? Can you get into the park early in the morning from outside? Thanks for any feedback!

RE: Buying 2019 RAM 3500 DRW - discount expectations?

Check ou www.31dodge.com. They are a huge dealer in NC, and they have them about $14k off. That should give you an idea of what Pricing you can get. Tell your local dealer you've always wanted to camp in NC in the fall. ;)

RE: Do you have a bed liner?

I've had my truck for 17 years, and the first 12 I had no liner. It only had about 1/2 the paint left on the bed floor. The wife kept telling me to get a spray in to make it look better. About 5 years ago I had it sprayed, and it made the truck looks 10 years newer. Your not gonna hurt anything not having a liner, it's just really personal preference. I will say the black liner is much hotter onyour hands than the white paint was.

RE: Solera awning replacement LEDs

My lights quit working about 6 months after getting my 5th wheel. Got ahold of Solera and they quoted me around 200 bucks to replace them....and that was just the light strip! Looked on Amazon......found some light strips that were 5/16" wide and 18' long.....orderd that strip(less then 15 bucks.) Took the old strip out......and put the new one in......it fit the channel just fine. That was 2 years ago and no problems. Do you happen to have the link to them. I've been searching and all seem to be .4 inches which I think would be to wide.

Solera awning replacement LEDs

I've got a Solera awning with the LED lights in the C channel on the side of the camper. The lights are toast, so I need to replace them. Has anyone found ones that fit in the channel, other then the $100 one from Lippert?? The first ones lasted less than 2 years, so I really don't want the same ones again. I may just go with the stick on ones, but would like, to use the channel. Thanks!

RE: 2nd to Wrangler what are the best toad options?

Not sure why you would pass on a Wrangler. You can explore places many other vehicles can’t go, you can drop the top in beautiful weather, no top or doors so the view is unobstructed. I can’t image the fuel difference with a toad would be that much. If mpg is that important the 4cyl turbo gets mid 20mpg, and a diesel version is coming out in 2020, that gets 29-40mpg.

RE: Hulu price increases TWICE this year!

The biggest cost for TV providers is content. This is catching up with the streaming services. They are all currently operating at a loss to gain subscribers. Once they start trying to make a profit you will see their prices come in line with cable and satellite services. I work in the cable industry, and see the prices charged by the different channels. The margins are very small. The streamers can be a little cheaper since they don't actually get the service to your house, they rely on your internet provider to do that. Probably 80-90% of your internet traffic is streaming video. So add $30-40 of Internet cost to that $61 for Hulu, and it gets you close the the price of cable/satellite. So when you streamers/cable/sat prices go up, it's not just because they want more money, it's because Discovery/ABC/ESPN/HGTV etc want more money. They want more money because NFL, actors, producers, etc want more money.

RE: Using the jack without the battery

A socket and cordless drill will run it up and down.

RE: Rotella for GAS Engines

I found it at AutoZone on clearance a few weeks ago, and bought 12 quarts for about $40, then sent in a rebate form, and got $24 back in about a week. Total price was less than $20 for 12 quarts.

RE: stopping point/overnight camp between Ohio & Fort Wilderness

If you can make it to Valdosta, River Park is a nice campground, right off the exit. Clean, and nice. Perfect for an overnight, and the have some big pull throughs. My daughter in in college at Valdosta State, and we stay there when visiting.

RE: Florida panhandle reservations

Along the panhandle is tough to get in, I've just about given up. For a spring or summer reservation, 5-6 months ahead there is nothing.

RE: Signing a power of attorney for bank when selling your RV

The bank is protecting itself to make sure you actually have a valid title before releasing the money. They would be in a mess if they sent the check and you sent them a title with someones name scratched out on the title. With it being handled through a bank/finance company, I'd be fine with it.

RE: Goons

This guy used to be on the Diesel Brothers tv show, and worked in the shop. He left, and opened his own shop somewhere. From whet I've seen on the show, seems like some good guys. Glad to hear they lived up to the good reputation.

RE: furnace while driving

Living in the south, I'd never thought of that, but I had thought it'd be nice to be able to run the AC while traveling. It takes for ever to cool off the camper and especially the mattress in the summer.

RE: What is a 6.0L Chevy engine

I've got a 2002 with 235,000 miles with the 6.0. Never any issues with the engine, or the tranny. I've only had expected wear items, and a few oil leaks. They make their power at high RPMs, so don't worry about turning 4K RPMs, that's where they make their power.

RE: Difficulty Reducing Tongue Weight

Like a few others have mentions try some E rated tires on the truck. Maybe you could find some lightly used takeoffstogive it a try. Even if you just put the on the rear. When I bought my Sway Pro hitch, I was debating on what weight bars, and emailed Blue Ox, and they told me when you are close, to always go heavier. It's a different hitch, but I think that would probably be true with yours as well. Good luck.

RE: Martingale Collar Danger

Our dog I guess was resting her head on some wooden patio furniture, and her dog tag went between the slats, and then turned and would not come out and was stuck.

RE: More campers than parks

I feel his pain. In the southeast there is little if any boondocking places. We prefer state parks but they are hard to get into. During the summers sites on a lake are nonexistant unless you book well in advance. Gone are the days of spur of the moment trips, unless you luck into cancelations. I was talking to a guy at the storage lot that was dropping off his camper, and they have had theirs for a year, and are getting turned off because they can't find sites. Florida State parks on the beach are booked up as soon as the sites become available, you just have to check constantly for cancelations.
