RE: Amazon Prime and Alexa

Turn off the "Drop In" permission. This is it. We "Drop In" on our son's family and we never hear anything till one of them answers us. They after their initial "acceptance", then we hear everyone in the room.

RE: Route 6/191 from Provo to Canyonland

It's not difficult at all. It's the standard two lane highway. Here's a YouTube of what the area and highway looks like.

RE: Campgrounds along or near Hwy 12 in Idaho

Sorry for not responding sooner. No all the spots are not big rig friendly. We just happened to get a big pull thru spot. Thanks!

RE: Toby is now waiting for me at the Rainbow Bridge

I'm sure you did hear him. The same happened with me when my Missy died. I heard her for weeks after.

RE: 2018 TT has been deemed Total Loss by insurance company

Overflow to the ground? I read it as running water faucets from your tank using your pump, then when you need more water, refill. The OP suggested an overflow outlet in the shower that leads to the ground as a solution. Using the tanks and pump eliminates the need for this and avoids illegal dumping situation. Thank you.

RE: Likely another ruined Vacation

That's too bad. I hope no one was hurt.

RE: Toby is now waiting for me at the Rainbow Bridge

I'm so sorry to hear of the loss of your beloved companion. He knew you were there for him and your closeness gave him comfort.

RE: Camping with a baby

You didn't say how you would be camping - tent or RV of some sort? When our sons were babies, we tent camped. The oldest was a toddler and I actually had a harness made for kids to keep him in a close circle by us. This way I could get a fire started and cook. His little brother who was a year younger, just an infant, was in a play pen. Fast forward to our grandkids coming camping. When the kids were little, we always had a portable crib outside to keep the little ones contained for safety and we had a portable high chair. Last fall we camped up in a remote campground in the Seven Devil's Wilderness and there was a couple next to with a toddler and an infant. They hiked back into the wilderness with those two kids and returned at dusk to a hot meal around their camp stove and slept through the night, except for one brief crying spell we heard from the baby.

RE: Hwy 93 south from Polson MT and Salmon ID.

In addition, beyond Wisdom is Wise and south of there is the Pioneer Mountains Scenic Byway and Crystal Park. A lot of nice FS CG's a long the way with a ghost town to explore on foot and crystals to dig for in Crystal Park. I equate this byway to Yellowstone without the crowds. There are scenic overlooks that compare with parking lots to boot, but no crowds.

RE: 2018 TT has been deemed Total Loss by insurance company

“We had a city water hook up and it ran for hours while we slept.” EXACTLY why I use the fresh water tank, using city water ONLY to refill the tank. This doesn't help the OP now, but is definitely something to remember for later. When we camp with hookups, we shut off the water when we leave, just in case. Just another thought for later, but I'm sure you've gone over in your head many times the "what if's" and the "next times". But it does address in a better way the idea of putting an overflow to the ground. Overflow to the ground? I read it as running water faucets from your tank using your pump, then when you need more water, refill.

RE: Hwy 93 south from Polson MT and Salmon ID.

Lost Trail Pass is the only significant grade. It levels out at ~7000’. I don’t recall it being particularly steep on either side though. It’s mainly all two-lane as you go further down the Bitterroot Valley. Slow down for all of the small towns. They make good speed traps. Correct. The climb up to Lost Trail Pass from the valley can be considered steep for some, but it's gradual and winds around to control the ascent angle. Same coming down the other side. If you don't have the power to make it up or down, this will make you nervous, otherwise, it's a beautiful pass. I always check out passes in my Mountain Directory West and on YouTube. Here's a link to a video on Lost Trail Pass, but there are others.

RE: Route 6/191 from Provo to Canyonland

It's an excellent route. We've driven it multiple times traveling to the national parks in Utah. You'll have no problem. Soldier Summit is a gradual climb, but you'll be alright.

RE: RV-Dump parking sloping the wrong way

Why are we concerned about getting a complete dump? When we are on the road, dump stations are sometimes hard to find. When we do not get a complete dump, we have to look for another dump station a day or two sooner than we would have if we had gotten a complete dump. We would rather spend our time traveling, not looking for dump stations and dumping. Unless you are dumping on the side of a mountain, I can't imagine that you are leaving more than 5 gallons of water inside your tanks. How small are your tanks? Mine are 46 gallons. I can go 2 weeks before I "have" to dump my black tank, and that's a family of 4... You've taught your family well on how to use an RV toilet system. We've taught our grandkids and we can stretch and bring back a lot of fresh water too.

RE: Older Dog and Night time

TugCE, I'm so sorry. We had all the same symptoms in our beautiful Lab, Maggie. We just chalked it up to old age, but not "the end". To this day, and it's only been 2 1/2 months since she passed, we wish she was still with us and ageless. Please keep us posted. We're here for you.

RE: cleaning before eternabond

Most videos I've seen applying Eternabond show using acetone. I have seen a few use windex also. Eternabond makes a cleaner also if your wanting what they recommend. The acetone will be significantly cheaper and has been used for years without reports of any problems. We used Eternabond's recommended cleaner in the link in this post. It worked well. Our thought was that using the manufacturer's recommended cleaner would be best for adhesion. So far, so good, 5 years later.

RE: Looking for Bighorn Recessed Lighting Glass Covers

Same here, complete component, but that's ok because if we need it down the line, we have it. I got a call from Heartland today for payment and it shipped out.

RE: Yellowstone glacier NP with no reservations

At Yellowstone, we've gotten into Bridge Bay easily early September and mid to late September, because Bridge Bay is closed, and Madison is too small for our rig to our liking, we stay either in West Yellowstone at a FS CG - Bakers Hole, or at GTNP at Gros Ventre.

RE: Yellowstone glacier NP with no reservations

Every time we visited was mid to late September. At that time, a lot of the campgrounds within the park are closed, but some are still open. We found lots of first come, first serve openings at that time of year. Due to our size, we opted to stay at the KOA, which was not busy then. Just a note, Glacier National Park has a Campground status page and you can check when to arrive.

RE: RV-Dump parking sloping the wrong way

We had this experience once in all our travels, at Lewis and Clark Caverns State Park in Montana. It frustrated us, but then we just figured that it dumped most of the tank and that we were going to dump one final time near home where it is level.
