RE: Bay of Fundy campground

We are camped at Century Farms in St Martin's now. Nice place with FHU. About 100 yard walk to the Bay of Fundy. According to my tide app, the tidal range here is about 33 ft low to high. Further up the Bay is Hopewell Rocks which IMO is the best place to experience the Fundy tides. The tidal range there is about 43 ft. Closest campground is Ponderosa Pines at Hopewell Cape.

RE: Close call (fire) with water heater

I had a similar issue with our older model Atwood water heater several years back. I was doing pre-trip testing and when I turned on the water heater flames came out of the air slots in the burner. Immediately shut it down and later found a spider web right at the elbow of the burner tube. Cleaned it out and all good to go.

RE: Allstays Camp and RV App discovery

I have Allstays Camp and RV on both my Android phone and and tablet and it still works OK. It isn't available for purchase for Android anymore. I found the following info on the Allstays website: Android Multiple things happened (map fee increase, a app ban/removal and censor of core data) that led to a departure from Android in late 2017. Full data is still on Apple and as normal. The Android apps will keep running and anything that goes to the web (website links, images, reviews, etc) will still work and be updated. But major code updates, data adds and deletions will not happen. You can still reinstall on devices as below. Versions may vary a little but general steps for reinstalling on Android any time for past customers: On your Android phone or tablet, open the Google Play Store app Google Play. Make sure you are logged with the account used before to buy Tap Menu Menu and then My Apps & games and then Library. Tap the app you want to install or turn on. Tap Install or Enable.

Thanks for the feedback and campground suggestions along the route. I looked them up and bookmarked for next year's trip. Did you run into any issues with the flooding when crossing the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers?

RE: Billings, Mt to Cody, Wy

I90 west to pick up route 212 at Laurel, which joins route 310 at Rockdale then route 72, which becomes route 120 at the MT/WY border. Easy drive, we have used this route in the opposite direction several times

RE: Atwood Hot water heater drain plug

Here's what I did to make draining the water heater easy. Two nylon thread to barb adapter fittings, 12" of 1/2 inch tubing and a valve. Stored position so door can close.

RE: Insurance recommendations for Class C

Check with Progressive. We have collision, comprehensive and liability with them on our 2003 Class C for $407/yr. Never had a claim for the MH but did have one for our car and satisfied with the response.

RE: Bar Harbor Campground

CloudDriver, I have read that Bar Harbor has a shuttle. Did you take the shuttle, while you were in the area? Bar Harbor Campground website shows that there is a free shuttle service available in season. We didn't use that as we like to have our RV facilities with us. There is a shuttle system in Acadia National Park as well.

RE: Bar Harbor Campground

We stayed 5 nights at Bar Harbor Campground last September. We arrived on the 18th, a Tuesday. First and last nights FHU for $44 and other 3 nights no hookup for $34. We paid by personal check. We drove up from Camden, ME and probably arrived early afternoon. No issue with getting a site. The office gave us a wooden "occupied" sign and told us to drive around to select a site, leave the sign on the picnic table and come back to register. If you want to visit the town of Bar Harbor and don't have a toad, here's how we have always found parking for our Class C. From Bar Harbor Campground (assuming you stay there) take route 3 and turn left at Bar Harbor St. Go several blocks to just past Catholic Church and turn right onto Ledgelawn Ave. Go several blocks and turn left onto Park St. Go past the park with ball fields and turn right onto Main St. There is a wide shoulder alongside the park used for RV parking.

RE: Boysen State Park & Sinks Canyon, Wyoming Questions

We have camped in Sinks Canyon twice in our 24ft Class C. Check with Google Earth and you will see that there are three campgrounds within a mile or so along the river. We stayed at the Popo Agie Campground, which is the first one you come to. Not a lot of sites large enough or level enough but we got lucky both times. We didn't check out the other two campgrounds. Google earth also shows boondocking sites further in near and beyond Frye lake. There are some hikes from the campground and the Sinks and Rise are interesting to see. For something different you could make a 1/2 day trip to South Pass City a couple of miles off route 28. They have tours and some hikes.
CloudDriver 06/09/19 05:07pm RV Parks, Campgrounds and Attractions

We have used route 36 across MO and KS several times. IMO much more relaxed driving than I80. Route 36 in MO is all divided highway, 2 lanes each side. In KS it is all 2 lane. Check MoDOT Traveler Info. for latest on road/bridge closures due to flooding. Right now looks OK at both Hannibal and St. Joseph. We have used Prairie Dog State Park in western KS for an overnight. From there you could pick up I70 to Route 36 to Colorado Springs. I80 south of Chicago has terrible traffic and delays.

RE: Dewinterizing issue

Winnebago plumbing diagram for Itasca Spirit 24V - See page 6 for location of fresh water tank drain valve, which may have been left open. There are also low point drains in the plumbing system, although their location isn't clear on the diagrams. Winnebago website - Click on Resources link for lots of other info about your rig.

RE: Highway 128 from Cisco to Moab

Easy drive, no grades, great scenery along the Colorado River. Look up Fisher Towers online - you will pass this spectacular formation on your left side.

RE: Yellowstone park entrance/exit

The high point on the east entrance road is at Sylvan Pass at 8,524 ft. The east entrance station is at 6,951 ft so it's a drop of 1,524 ft. Using the 5 miles mikim mentioned, that's 320 ft decent/mile or about a 6% average grade. I just used Google Street View to "drive" the east entrance road from Sylvan pass down to the east entrance station and see no grade warning signs. The only switchback is along the climb to Sylvan Pass from Yellowstone lake. After the entrance station it's a long gradual descent for some 50 miles to Cody.

RE: Summer RV National Park Trip

For Grand Teton, we always use Gros Ventre campground at the southern end of the Park. No reservations, seldom fills, level sites, one loop with electric, water and dump at the entrance. Get there in mid-morning as folks are leaving and you should have no trouble finding a site. For Yellowstone, keep calling back to check for cancellations. Otherwise, we have used Bakers Hole Forest Service campground 3 miles north of West Yellowstone. Again, get there as folks are leaving. Another FS campground we have used when Bakers Hole was full is Rainbow Point about 4 miles further on. A number of private campgrounds in West Yellowstone and west near Henrys lake. Again, keep calling to check for cancellations. When driving cross country, we call ahead for a campsite in the early afternoon. For the 4th of July weekend we have called ahead several days and have been successful.

RE: Inverter

Are you using a residential compressor type refrigerator in the RV? Most RVs come with a refrigerator that runs on propane during travel and on electric when on shore power. An inverter is not needed to run these refrigerators.

RE: driving directions

If you are comfortable with mountain driving, take I90 west to Buffalo then route 16 over the Bighorn Mountains to Worland then route 20 to Greybull and route 14 to Cody. A longer route with no mountain driving is to stay on I90 to Laurel (just past Billings) then routes 212, 310, 72 and 120 to Cody. We have done both in our Class C. From Cody to West Yellowstone, the shortest way is to drive through the Park. If going direct from Rapid City to West Yellowstone, stay on I90 to Bozeman then route 191 to West Yellowstone.

RE: Hwy 24 Ft Wayne to Peoria

We use routes 30 and 24 across OH and IN to avoid Chicago and the OH and IN toll roads. Route 30 is all divided highway with 2 lanes each side. Route 24 is the same as far west as Logansport, IN then 2 lane on west. We get off route 30 at Van Wert and take route 224 to join route 24 at Huntington to save miles going around Ft. Wayne. IMO the extra time to use route 24 is much better than the craziness around Chicago.

RE: E450 trans oil change?

I have changed the transmission fluid three times in our Class C on the 2003 E450 chassis using this procedure. Easy job in the driveway. Currently at 112,000 miles with no transmission issues.
