RE: Tranny fluid change

I’ve got the Ford TorqShift with the external bypass filter in a housing and it’s quite frozen. Couldn’t crack it loose with a 1/2” rachet and didn’t want to break something. Thinking about trying to use a filter wrench on the filter housing along with the rachet on the end nut. Any tips? I haven't had that issue but I'd try using a 1/2" impact gun turned down a bit.

RE: I-25 in Colorado

Take Thom's advice and avoid I25. The section between Monument and Castle Rock is under construction and a mess due to many lane changes. There are accidents and traffic stops almost daily. I travel south regularly with an RV and avoid that route by using local roads. Longer but more relaxing.

RE: Buffalo Bill State Park

If you are unable to get a spot in the state park try Yellowstone Valley Inn & Rv Park. It is 16 miles west of Cody. We stayed there a few years ago and enjoyed it.

RE: Colorado Hwy. 50 road closures

You have already made your decision but for others if Black Canyon is your destination one can get to it from Montrose without any trouble. The road work is east of it.

RE: driving from Ouray to Canyonlands NP

We traveled that route in the opposite direction (Moab to Ouray) 3 years ago pulling a 34' 5th wheel. There are a couple of areas with switchbacks but overall it was a pleasant drive with little traffic. it was our first time in that part of Colorado and would travel that way again if needed or maybe to explore the area some.

RE: Ladder rung end plastic insert

I have the same ladder and over the years have replaced all of these inserts. Early on they were about a third of what we are seeing now. I don't think the original ladder is available anymore so replacement parts have gotten expensive. Also, I haven't found a replacement that is easy to install the way the original is attached. I still have a couple of spares so hopefully the ladder will outlast my ownership. And the suggestion to fill in the crack with something is not a good idea as a failure of the insert will cause a bad fall and the crack is the first sign of that failure.

RE: 2 nights required

A few years ago we traveled with another couple in our respective rvs. We wanted an overnight stay in a La. state park. The park had plenty of openings but they made us call in to a number off site that charged us for making a reservation. What a rip off.That is the same thing that happens here in South Dakota. A couple we camp with a lot used to pick an empty site and then have the campground attendant (an employee) book it. The out of state reservation company told the state they couldn't do that anymore, they were losing too much money. So it's probably not the states fault. It is the same now here in Colorado, all state park camp sites must be reserved on line or on a state call line. The reason given was that the parks don't have the manpower and they don't want to mess with handling cash or credit cards.

RE: Nebraska Rt. 2

I have been traveling to the Valentine area for many years and have used all of the routes you have mentioned. All are good routes IMO. As mentioned be sure to fill up in the bigger towns as most small towns may not have a station. You can check out road conditions at Nebraska 511 which will really help if they get a lot of snow this spring or heavy rains which can cause flooding in the sand hills.

RE: Directv/ATT vs Local CBS station... Question

Locast...may not be available in many areas. I tried to get it here in the Denver area but could never get it to work.

RE: Directv

We have DirecTV, with service at our home in Colorado. When we use our Winegard dish while traveling with DirecTV service, we still get the Denver local channels. If you want the local channels I don't think DirecTV offers a service like that, at least not one that's a total PITA to deal with as you move around. From what I read, Dish is more RV friendly. We aren't switching because Dish doesn't have our local sports station, and also we don't travel enough for it to be a big deal to not have local to our location stations. You probably are still traveling within the Denver spot beam. I also have Direct and loose the Denver stations in upper Montana, southern New Mexico and eastern Nebraska. It is apparently a large spot beam. I have switched service areas at times but it is a pita due to inexperienced reps.

RE: I just got the new RV Magazine

Just got the second issue, worse than the first. I want to know about RV's and tech issues, not how to plan a honeymoon. Total waste of money. X2

RE: Is this doable or am I overlooking something??

I have been doing this for about 15 years without any issues. I just run the cord thru a slide out seal. I have never been questioned by any campground person. As mentioned by time2roll be sure to use a heavy duty extension cord.

RE: Snow loads for Trailer

I have owned 2 NUWA 5th wheels since 1996 and they get stored outside in the winter and not covered. Some winters we had multiple feet of snow. Neither unit suffered any roof damage and never leaked. I may have shoveled the snow off a couple of times in all those years but only when I was going somewhere. It is just too dangerous being on a slick roof.

RE: Snowmobile trailer tire question

Thanks for the replies everyone. Also spoke w/ a friend of mine and he said he can get Carlisle radial tires load range D for 60 (his cost) or bias load range C for lil cheaper. The Carlisle tires LR C have a "trailer" tread while the Carlisle LR D have a center rib. Both have speed ratings of 80 mph (not that I tow that fast) and weight ratings north of 5k. The orig tires that came w/ the trailer have seen 65-70 on the hiway and knock on wood, no problems. Just make sure they are the Trail HD. That tire has had good results for many users. I have them on my boat trailer and they are doing well.

RE: Mt Rushmore and Yellostone National Park

Henry's Lake State Park About 15 miles west of Yellowstone's west gate. Gorgeous view, 15 minute drive to the park. Reasonable fees. Richard X2 loved the view and it beats the crowded, packed in Grizzly RV Park in price.
