RE: Which Stand-alone GPS system to purchase?

I have a Garmin 2757ltm. We have never had a problem with it. I do not follow the GPS to the point of being stupid. My brother reset my GPS to use the shortest route that included off road and it wanted to take me down some deer trail/hiking paths. We had a good laugh when it said to turn down a snowmobile trail.

RE: Laws/Regulations for RV Fresh & Waste Water Service

4x4van -What is so terrible about the pipes being in view? Do you want me to put pants and underwear on my TT o that you can't see its private parts. Do you get disturbed when you drive past a field and see a cow taking a **** without using an outhouse? I think we have more important things to get upset about.

RE: Recommend me a Vacume Food Bagger

I have been using a Food Saver vacuum sealer for over 20 years. It is starting to get a little slow so I bought a new Food Saver. I just can't bring myself to break out the new on and retire my old reliable unit. I do purchase the rolls of bag material because I am cheap and don;t like puRchasing high priced bags when I can make my own bags out of the exact material that I buy from them at half the cost or less when bought on sale.

RE: LED's for marker lights

I replaced all of marker lights and tail light assemblies with complete LED units. I got them from etrailer and they worked great. I did however find that some of my marker lights were wired backwards and I had to correct that. My new lights were many times brighter than the originals. I was very happy with the small cash investment and a couple hours of my time installing them.

RE: stupid move

Where do you live? Maybe someone could check this problem out for you?

RE: Diesel fuel stop on I25 between Cheyenne Wy. Casper Wy.

I usually just check Gas Buddy for prices and then look at Google Maps to get a street level view to see what the station looks like. Never had a problem doing it this way. I sometimes will fill up at 60% to avoid a middle of nowhere gas stop. I had a Toyota based Damon that had short legs, only 200 miles between fill-ups so I had to be careful.

RE: Tips for Traveling with Other Couples

I can travel with my immediate family but very few other people. My daughters know that my wife and I get up early, have breakfast, and break camp by 8:00. We travelled for for two weeks together on a trip to the Rockies. One daughter could not wait to get home, the other one wants to go with us again. Even people that KNOW each other may not travel well together.

RE: Mat rant

Gave the mat that came with my new trailer to my daughter to use on her deck at home when they use their screen tent. The mat keeps the mosquitos from coming into the screen tent through the slats on the deck. Best use for a mat I have ever seen.

RE: Legend Cast Iron Multi Cooker Skillet Set

At 0ne time I had a matched set of Griswold CI from 6 inch to 15 inch, each with a lid, that belonged to my great grandmother. It was all in great shape. My ex-wife hated CI and she sold it at a garage sale for $25 while I was at work. There were not so nice words exchanged when I found out. Now to the current era. I have replaced my cast iron. Most of it is either Griswold or Wagner. I pick it up for 3 or 4 dollars in bad shape and clean it up. The best way to clean up dirty CI is to get a good fire going in my Weber grill and place the CI directly on the coals. Let the fire go out and wipe out all of the ashes. I then melt a big block of lard in the pan and cook up some frycakes (doughnuts.) I let everything cool off and repeat the process several times. Besides some great frycakes, I end up with a perfectly seasoned pan.

RE: 30 amp plug question

I looked at your pictures and did not see the actual plug. Did I miss it?

RE: Teton Pass Route 22

I have gone over Teton pass several times, including once with a Toyota based RV. The Toytruck did the pass without a problem. It did the pass at 4500 rpm's in first and second gear but we passed a few large RV's and TT's. 120 HP and weighing 6000 pounds gives a poor power/weight ratio.

RE: Class c overhead marker lights/lens

Replace the existing marker lights with led lights from superbrite led. I did this on my Class C Damon and I loved the extra brightness and less electricity they used.

RE: Miles per day.

On the first day of almost every trip we knock off 600-700 miles. I have seen the Dakotas many times. We want to get to the Black Hills or the Rockies so we push it. Wisconsin is centrally located but it is still a good drive to get where we want to go. After the first day, we may not go anywhere for a couple of days in a row or maybe 200 miles.

RE: New To TT game, need some help/advice/smacking

We bought a bunkhouse trailer "just in case" the grandkids wanted to go with us. After the first month long trip, we sold it and bought a rear dinette unit with huge rear windows and love it. It is like having a greenhouse to eat in. The bunkhouse was like being in a cave due to limited outside views.

RE: Do you contribute ?

Park reviews, both positive and negative as needed. Gas buddy price updates occasionally. RV sales/service facility when I buy new or have service done.

RE: Need help with a Exterior problem

That may be a "new' trailer but it is also a damaged trailer. I think that there is something wrong to have that many cracks in the sides. Maybe the frame is screwed up and putting tension on the side panels. I personally would not buy it.

RE: Have I been doing it wrong all these years?

With my F150 the biggest advantage I see for using T/H is when going downhill with the cruise control on. It shift to lower gears faster to keep the speed form building up. On several hills around here the truck will shift down to 3rd gear to keep the speed at 55 mph (the speed limit.)

RE: Glacier National Park

We have stayed several times at Apgar without reservations. When are you planning your trip? You can look at the campground status page to see what campground are full. Even today the only campground that is full is Fish Creek and it filled at 7:15 this morning. We are heading for Glacier next month and don't forsee any problems getting a site.

RE: Trailer Running Light Issue

From my 50 plus years of experience with trailer lights, troubleshooting should always begin with establishing a good, known ground from the light to the tow vehicle. When I wire up a trailer, all fixtures have a positive and a negative wire that goes to the tow vehicle. I don't rely on frame grounding.
