RE: Decals cracking!

When I did mine I used a combination of heat gun, plastic razor blades, goo gone and a rubber eraser wheel. The eraser wheel worked the best and left the least amount of residue behind to deal with. Remember, you may have some ghosting of the decals left after removal and may not be able to polish that out. I chose to use the ghost images left as templates and painted the graphics back on using automotive paint. It is simply a tedious job. Good luck. You're correct about the ghosting. We had our decals professional replaced and there are a couple of areas where you can see the ghosting and they had to take the entire finish down and rewax and buff the entire unit. That was the costliest part of the service.

RE: Campgrounds near Yellowstone

Heading to Madison CG labor day for a week. Hoping all the families are back home, lol. Hoping it's back to normal crowds and relaxing. Will report back. Dave I didn't see a lot of kids, some of the lockdown states have still closed down schools tho freeing up parents to travel. Interesting that last Sept we didn't see a lot of kids either, but the park and surrounding campgrounds were packed!

RE: Campgrounds near Yellowstone

We spent four weeks between Garniner and West Yellowstone last September. We had days it seemed very busy only to learn that YNP hit a new visitation record for September last year. We went back for May of this year and found it very busy and learned a new May record had been set. We read reports that the park was looking into ways of managing the traffic. This is already happening at other national parks, and I am afraid it will be a growing problem across the country, especially with the most popular parks. Art We were at Yellowstone September of 2021, camping outside the park on the East and West side. It was crazy on the days we toured the park.

RE: Campgrounds near Yellowstone

Thank you for the feedback! Maybe it's returned to somewhat normal visitation rates.

Campgrounds near Yellowstone

We've gone to Yellowstone multiple years in a row in mid September with last year being the worst for crowding. Even the campgrounds outside the park were busy requiring jockeying for a site. For those of you who have visited this year, and familiar with other years, how is the camping situation looking for this year? We're thinking of going again and just want a hint of what to expect. Yea, yea, I know the Delta variant may be pushing people to get back out with their kids instead of having them in school, but around here (western Idaho) most of the schools are in session with just a few having shut down for a week due to an increase in cases. Thanks for sharing any experience you have.

RE: Jacked your to house batteries

What about compatibility of the Jackery with the inverter? We were looking into getting lithium batteries for our FW, but we had to check on our model of inverter and if lithiums would be compatible. BTW, we have a Jackery as backup for hubby's CPAP to use while camping. We did a test run with the CPAP which was a no brainer, but we also did a test run of it to power our Dometic portable fridge/freezer and it ran for an entire week. We've got solar panels to recharge the Jackery while out dry camping.

RE: The price of new trucks is beyond comprehension!

We had to walk 11 miles to school, in 4 feet of snow, uphill both ways, with no shoes. :B Not me, had the 11 miles of 4 foot snow, but my dad drove us and picked us up.

RE: Have you camped near Nevada's high wildernesses?

The only thing I can provide is advise on the Jarbidge area. We were planning on going, but a coworker who traveled there, advised on a four wheel drive to get there from the Idaho side (we are in the Boise, Idaho area). That's ok, because we've got a Jeep, but a tent would probably we our mode of accommodations. We have a small popup, tent, and our FW for different destinations. Haven't gone yet.

RE: Recliner Modification

My husband recently purchased these to raise his office chair, but never thought of putting these on a recliner! Thank you for the idea. We too have to drag our recliners back and forth for travel. Love them, but never thought we could make it easier!

RE: Macerator pump questions

Same for us what way2roll said. The macerator is convenient to have, but if the line is minimal or non existent at the dump station, we stop in there. Goes faster.

RE: New to RVs.....A Few Newbie Questions

Agree with what wanderingaimlessly stated. When we decided on a FW, we went to every local dealer and "tried" them out. Opening the cupboards, paying attention to how they felt. Were they flimsy, etc. We asked the salesman to bring in the slides so we could see what the living space would be when we stopped at a truck stop for the night en route or when we just stop for lunch. Could we access the fridge, sink, stove, bathroom, bedroom, shower? All that was important to us because after 4 previous TT's, especially our last one, we couldn't access the fridge with the slide in and had to pack a cooler for traveling. To some that may not be a big deal, but to us it was. Since we work full time, we often leave after work and drive as far as we can staying with truckers overnight if we have to, so putting the slides out is not an option. Most new FW's in that price range come with residential fridges. For us that would not work, at all, an RV fridge is a must since most of our camping is boondocking or FS. We don't care for RV parks, only staying in them as needed to wash clothes or to dump our tanks and fill up again for the next dry camping stint. We purchased our FW brand new in 2010 and love it. Very solid. In comparing it to a Montana, it had all the same fit and finish, but with a few more options. Our tanks are big enough that we can dry camp for a week and still have water left over. Glad we spent the money.

RE: Leave propane on while driving?

We don't for safety purposes and never having to remember to shut the propane off when refueling. Fortunately we have a solar setup and set the fridge to run off the inverter when we are on the road.

RE: National Forest boondocking sites compatible with big rigs

Campendium users will often tell you what site rigs will fit in boondocking sites for those listed. There is the option in Campendium to ask a question and it is often responded to. Also, listings have great information and often list this info. On Google Maps, there is an option to measure an area and that's been very helpful to determine road or back in area sizes. Measure distance between points On your computer, open Google Maps. ... Right-click on your starting point. Choose Measure distance. Click anywhere on the map to create a path to measure. ... Optional: Drag a point or path to move it, or click a point to remove it.

RE: I think I have a bad battery.

Exact thing happened to us, but since our batteries were new in 2013, we replaced all four. In our case, we use distilled water and painstakingly took care of them, not overfilling, not overcharging. Then we took our unit in for extensive cosmetic work and it was in the shop for 6 months. We reminded them to monitor the batteries. On one trip in we noticed the front bay, where the batteries are stored, open. After bringing it home and dealing with the CO2 alarm going off and checking everything for a possible cause, we narrowed it down to the batteries off gassing, and boy were they off gassing. It's possible the techs didn't charge them correctly and they had the front bay open to keep the CO2 alarm from going off. Regardless, we replaced them all as 8 years is a long life. No odor and the CO2 alarms is now silent.

RE: 5th wheel Hitch recommendations

We have a Hensley TrailerSaver BD3 and have since we got our FW back in 2010. We travel backroads and forest service roads to boondock, so this hitch has done us well. **Note: we used to have this hitch in a short bed with a slider adaptor. Never needed the adaptor.

RE: Idaho fires

Always be prepared. Before we head out boondocking, I call the ranger station, as I stated before, but when we park, we stay either hitched, if possible, and if not possible, we stay lined up so we can hitch quickly.
