RE: Larger 5th wheels in/on state and federal parks

Our 5er is 34’. We have been in some state parks where we have had more than enough room. And we have been in some where even a foot longer and we probably could not have fit. Varies a lot park to park. Some parks have sites ranging from short to long with the long ones typically grabbed up first. And some have very narrow access roads limiting what you can get thru.

RE: Self Driving 18 wheeler Going 75 MPH

He is guessing it is in autopilot simply because she has one hand on the wheel, but is only guessing. He doesn't like going 75, but is going 75 to stay with it while talking and looking into his camera to do his video, even raising both hands off the wheel at one point. He apparently speeds up to pull up beside the truck which implies he has increased his speed beyond 75. Not sure which one to be more concerned about.

RE: Tornado Season

Put it in perspective. There are around 70 tornado deaths in the US per year. There are in excess of 35,000 vehicle deaths in the US per year. You are in far more danger in driving thru the area than by tornadoes while in the area. And the months of April, May, and June are the prime months for tornadoes primarily beginning in the southern states early and moving northward as the weather warms. So April will be sort of a "shoulder" month in the great plains. Tornadoes are very destructive and life threatening, IF you happen to be in the path of one. But they are not something that happen daily, or even weekly. They are typically very scattered, short lived, and cover a short distance before they dissipate. I have lived in the southern end of tornado (north TX) all my 74 years. The last time a tornado hit our house I was 3 years old. And none particularly close since then. Don't be overly concerned about them. But do be prepared. There are weather apps for your smart phone that will send out warnings for the local area. A good NOAA weather radio is good to have. You can program in the local county you are presently in. If strong storms are predicted, stay tuned to local TV channels for up to date weather forecasts. When you check into an RV park find out if they have a shelter on site. And if not, where is the nearest safe place to go. Again, be prepared. But don't let that worry spoil your trip.

RE: Big Bend National Park

For the hill country we really like Kerrville-Schreiner Park in Kerrville. Formerly a state park now owned by the city of Kerrville. Split by a highway with Riverside and Hillside areas. We like the Hillside, but it has only 30 amp FHU. If you want 50 amp FHU you have to stay on the Riverside. But both sides are great. And likely deer will come grazing thru your camp site. Good central area to visit Fredericksburg (with a large number of wineries), Boerne, Bandera, etc.

RE: Cash Vs. Finance

When we bought our 5er we did a PDI and then we wrote a check for the full amount and towed it home.

RE: So California to Creede CO

Good info to add would be what type and size RV you will be traveling in. And if you have any problem driving on mountain roads and associated heights and altitudes.

RE: Glacier 2020 vanished

He seems to try to make it out to be some kind of scandal and he is making sure everyone is aware of secret activity going on behind the scenes. Needs to get a life.

RE: Break away cable

I am going to go out on a limb and guess 90% or more hook the cable to the hitch arm.

RE: I expect a 10 cent price increase in diesel

Diesel prices fluctuate so much around here a 10 cent increase would not even be noticeable.

RE: potty without the rv

I bought one like this many years ago for the few times my wife went hunting with me. Just tie the bag and drop it in the next trash bin.

RE: Slideouts Stalling

Hydraulic slides have a single hydraulic pump actuated by a single switch. Slides go out one at a time in sequence. Some models have switches to actuate valves to isolate individual slides if you do want to operate all slides.

RE: Hard tonneau covers and 5er hitch

As long as the top of the hitch is below the top of the bed rails you should have no problem. My Pace Edwards hard roll type cover easily clears my hitch.

RE: Slideouts Stalling

Most likely the auto reset circuit breaker. Look for something like this near your battery. Likely more than one so you will need to figure which one is for the slides. Cheap and easy to replace.

RE: Denali NP-probable shutdown 2020 season

........... I have numerous friends who have gone to Denali-some said it was the highlight of their trip, others said it wasn't that great. We will get to Denali at some point but for whatever reason fate is pushing us elsewhere. If you catch Denali NP with clear weather the views are absolutely awesome. If you are unlucky and catch it cloudy you may not even be able to tell The Mountain is there. And that is not uncommon. We had both on the same trip. Taking the shuttle in we could not even see the base of The Mountain. Near dark clouds began to break. About 2 am the northern lights were out. And the next day not a cloud to be seen. And as we were leaving 2 days later clouds were moving back in. Timing was perfect. For us.

RE: Dish TV

I have used a Tailgater for years. I carry a dog tie out plastic coated wire cable and padlock it to a tree, table leg, stabilizer, etc. Would not stop someone with good bolt cutters. But in 12 years no problem.

RE: Denali NP-probable shutdown 2020 season

Most of the campgrounds (except Wonder Lake) are located before it. We are booked at North Face Lodge at the end of the road as we don't have an rv right now. .......... We stayed at the Kantishna Roadhouse lodge past Wonder Lake and near the end of the park road a number of years ago and thoroughly enjoyed it. The ride in on the shuttle and the stay in that area was great. Numerous grizzlies, caribou, sheep, and other smaller wildlife along the park road certainly made the trip enjoyable.

RE: Campgrounds in Texas, specifically near Austin

If they are going to take a few days off and rent an RV to go with you, then my first choice would be to get out of the Austin mess and head over into the hill country areas around Fredericksburg, Kerrville, Bandera, or even farther west. And then it depends on your and their interest. There are very scenic state/city parks with hookups but few amenities other than hiking/biking and enjoying nature. And visiting the quaint hill country towns. Then there are the full service RV parks with a lot of amenities. If she has lived in the area very long she can probably guide you in a good choice of places to go.

RE: Bunk model 5th wheel

The Montana High Country (a notch below the standard Montana) has a couple of bunk house models. I tend to agree with above that there is such a limited demand for high end bunk house the manufacturers just don’t cater to it.

RE: What happened to STREET VIEW in Google Maps?

It is working for me. The little man is there even in standard map view. And moving him to the map shows street view. There are some few areas where the google cars have apparently not been to video the area. Especially more remote areas, and newer streets that have not been there long enough to get their picture taken. I was in a street view picture for about 5 years before they came around again and took new pictures and dropping me out. So those are sometimes well behind time. Maybe you are looking at one of those areas.
