RE: RV Trip

You will have 4 lane divided road most of the route. This is S Georgia, so a Deere (John) may give you a bit of a problem. A few communities to go through, then Sylvester and on to Albany. Gets to be 2 lanes for a will west of there. In Cuthbert you can turn on the bypass and head up to Columbus. Again 4 lane. Follow the signs to Cusseta and Columbus. Piece of cake

RE: auto transport

Was not a negative or sarcastic comment at all. The man wants to know as much as he can so that he might make an informed and intelligent comment. Give him a break

RE: With out the tow

Up to you I guess. Went from Ga to LasVegas a few years back and did not tow. Sure was a lot of places we would have liked to seen on the way out i.e. Superstition Mountains etc. Rented a car in LV and saw the city and area. If we go back via MH we will tow. Rental was relatively cheap from the Circus Circus however

RE: Dash AC

I expect the last 'take it out' advice is more sour apples than practical advice. The last two pushers we had never gave trouble. The first, a used Coachmen, never worked right. The last two, a 2000 Itasca Horizon and a 2008 driver area on a hot day across Texas or Arizona, but on an average day they did fine.

RE: gold claim

Ole buddy of mine in Tucson would go into the desert near there and was able to find some small pieces on occasion, but not a lot and never enough to be worth the effort. He just liked the desert camping.

RE: Gulf State Park Alabama

Just got a reply from an inquiry yesterday. Said they were booked the entire month of March. This is the month we get most of our snow in N Georgia and we were going to sneak out for a couple of weeks. :? I still did not get and answer on the rates question,

RE: screw heads popping up under rubber roof

You screw them out, coat them with Gorilla Glue and the put the Ebond patch over the 1/4 inch slit the screw came out and back into

RE: Cody and Thermopolis WY RV Parks

We were in Cody for a while three years ago. Knew nothing about the area but took a chance on the first place we came to. We stayed a Absaroka for 3 or 4 days. Price was right and folks were very nice. Paved sites and near downtown. Little too close together to call a resort, but the best thing was the vegetables. It was summer and the guy running the place had fresh tomatoes he shared with us. We would stay there again - if tomatoes are in season. The park beside the reservoir is nice looking but I am not sure they have sewer. The WalMart had a huge parking area for RVs and right after dark one night, we counted over 25 trailers, fivers and MHs. If no more than a couple of days stay, that might be an option

RE: tail lights on magnetic tail lights

On the MH, I have the big 7 pin round connector, into which is plugged a round 7 pin male that terminates with a 4 pin flat connecter. I will check on the color of the wire that connects to the rear of the big connector on the MH. Will also see how it works with my F-250.

tail lights on magnetic tail lights

2008 Damon Essence on a Freightliner chassis. Magnetic lights for the toad. Brake lights and turn signals work fine on coach and mag lights. Tail lights work fine on the coach. However there is no tail lights on the magnetic lights. A couple of folks have told me it is because the lights on the coach were separate from the brake and turn signals. I am not sure what they were talking about. The parts store that I buy stuff from has all sorts of for tail/brake/turn signal lights. I have not found anything that looks like it would fix this. The mag lights are plain old 4 wire common lights. What do I need?

RE: Adventure and Difficult Roads - Way over used terms

"Yeah, the vibe I got from this post was "wimps with normal RVs and driving on interstates are not real men", although the video was pretty cool." Same here!

RE: Lake Okeechobee campground recommendation

We have stayed at the Roland Martin place a few years back. It is small and the sites are close together. Not much of a place to really call an RV destination. Not many sites, but this is a fish camp, not a campground. There is a canal that leads to the lake through the dike that surrounds most of the southern park of the lake. Water was low when we were there and you could pretty much motor in and out. There are fishing guides with boats available as are boat livery. The upper end of the lake is much more attractive than the southern end IMHO. I would not spend the money to go/stay there again

RE: Windshield repair?

I likely would start at an rV body shop, IF you are sure that the front cap has actually deformed. Do you have a single front jack? or can you lower one jack at a time causing the 'warping' of the front cap? Sounds serious if the windshield will not even go back into the hole it came out of.

RE: Traveling I-40 west

One of the longest days I have ever spent in a MH was across Oklahoma several years ago. Steady wind blowing out of the South all day long, ALL day long! Steady pressure on the steering wheel made me think the front end was out of alignment. Pulled into Ft Smith at the end of the day, nearly dark, and did not even eat, just plugged in and went to sleep. Hope I never have to make that long and boring trip again.

RE: West Yelowstone camping

We've stayed at Grizzly, but that place might be a bit pricey for anything as long as a month. You could give them a call and just see what they had to say.

RE: 50 amp surge protector

Progressive! Best there is IMHO! tfanelli@progressiveindustries.net This guy is the president of the company and will respond to your questions and make recommendations on what you need. Guaranteed for life and will rebuild or resupply if it is damaged. I have a portable 50 AMP because I might need to change coaches from time to time. It has saved me twice from low voltage. When the voltage came back up, the unit allowed current to once again flow. Mr Fanelli will give you details about warranties etc

RE: Different question about Yellowstone

StarkNaked nailed it. Watched ravens unload a couple's picnic supplies while the guy and lady walked down to the river. It was as if these things were watching for the couple to move and they moved in. Pulled stuff out on the table and even opened containers that were in the basket. Thugs apparently had a lookout, because they flew off before the couple got back from the river. These things are pretty smart for sure.

RE: made reservations

Old guy, don't give up. My wife has had MS for over 20 years and has reached the point she cannot walk, even with a cane. She can make it for a few feet with a rolling walker. We just got over a bout with breast cancer and were ready to sell out and find a place to stay. She told me a few days before Thanksgiving last year that she wants to do another trip west for a few months. The planning and discussing of this trip has invigorated me and refreshed my outlook as well as actually make her feel better and get a bit stronger. I know we will have to quit one of these days, but as long as she is wanting to get out on the road then I will do my best, with the help of the Lord, to make it happen.

RE: Has anyone had a run in with any WILD animals?

We have had the usual buffalo and elk encounters, but got scolded and growled at by a danged marmot near a campground we hosted in SD. Never had any of marmots we dealt with in two summers do this. They would stop and look at you and the move on if you got close. Apparently this one had claimed this area near the Stockade South CG as his own. He would vocalize, sort of a growl if we got closer than he wanted, but would also begin this 'bark' kinda sound the moment we came into view.
