RE: Teton Pass

Glad it was a good experience for you.

RE: Teton Pass

Going to drive the Teton pass from Victor to Jackson WY (Eastbound) with the truck and trailer in my signature. Will let you know what I like or dislike about it. I have years of semi driving experience and have drove many mountain passes with the trailer. Jeff Please do let us know if this was as bad as some say. I'm planning a trip next summer, and will go from Gros Venture CG to Madison CG., and this looks like the way to go. I would just be westbound. I have a 2022 F450 and a 16K lbs trailer, with lots of mtn driving exp. I doubt it would be a good idea to go up hwy 191 all the way thru Yellowstone pulling my 36' 5th wheel. Thanks, Mark The drive up through the Snake River Canyon is beautiful and much more enjoyable.

RE: Teton Pass

We took it once and even with our current truck and FW, we go around to Alpine Pass for an easier, more enjoyable, less butt puckering ride!

RE: Fifth wheel chucking (practical help needed)

Hitch and also the suspension. We have a TrailerSaver BD3 with air bags AND Equa-flex spring suspensions. We boondock a lot taking FS roads, but even on paved roads, we don't have that chucking.

RE: Really Dusty Roads? Would this be viable in the US?

I can see where you can keep the interior dust down if you install a vent that sucks in filtered air from the exterior. Without a filter you're just sucking in dust. From their website it appears the Gusto uses filtered air to pressurize the interior so I can see a benefit. At $2,250 AUD (approx $1,450 USD) I would be rather go buy an air filter housing from a wrecked vehicle at the junk yard. Then add a fan and some ducting to the outside and you have a poor mans Gusto for a whole lot cheaper. At that price I agree with you!!!

RE: Really Dusty Roads? Would this be viable in the US?

Out here in the West, there are a lot of boondockers. The first I do when we set up is dust!

RE: Tire Recommendation for Tow Vehicle

We have Toyo AT Open Country on our TV. The most off road we do is back on forest service roads for boondocking. Nothing crazy because of our FW.

RE: Route to McCall Idaho

Hwy 55 from Boise to McCall is winding canyon for the first section, the after your climb up to the Round Valley, it's wide open and fairly flat after that except a short climb and downgrade north of Cascade on Little Donner Summit. If you go around on Hwy 95 through Weiser, Cambridge and New Meadows, then on over to McCall, it is a bit longer and about the same in climbs in short sections. When we head up there, we always go Hwy 55. It's scenic, but watch the other drivers. A lot of people like to speed through there and there tends to be quite a few accidents. In just the last two weeks there have been three.

RE: Dometic VS Norcold dc refrigerators

Per our RV tech - Dometic does better at high altitudes. Having camped a lot at 7 - 9k elevation with no problem, I can attest to his expert advice.

RE: Black tank valve

What happened to the OP? I'd like to know what became of their problem with the valve.

RE: Is a roof leak covered by warranty?

Only 5 months old? Certainly a warranty issue. Would you expect a 5 month old CAR to leak? Of course not. Great point. Somehow we accept the idea that an RV might leak within a few months and certainly within a few years. Why is this acceptable. Shouldn't we expect an RV to be leak free indefinetly? Hell, we've had our FW for 13 years and it has never leaked.

RE: Advice for Trip to Utah

Check the info on RV's and the tunnel in Zion NP. I'm not sure if they will fit. This may effect your route. Huge buses go through the tunnel and some FW's.

RE: Advice for Trip to Utah

Have you Googled RV Rentals in the Salt Lake City area? Just looked at Outdoorsy and they have several Roadtrek vans for rent.

RE: Black tank valve

First thing to try, and I speak from experience, is to put Thetford Drain Valve Lubricant in your tank. Our valve was stuck open which is the opposite of yours. It's better and recommended to treat the valve with it closed. So at the advice of the local RV supply and shop, we bought the Thetford, ran hot water in our toilet (using buckets), managed to get the valve closed, which is what you want. We let it sit (preferred to drive around so the liquid swishes around), but for us it worked. We can open and close easily now. I put additional treatment in along with two gallons of hot water. Why they stick can be because sludge builds up around it much like the valve on your lawn mower when you move between mulch and bag. Try that first before you panic and have to take things apart.

RE: Motorhome/toad make trip down Teton Pass

I'm glad no one was hurt. Having driven down it once with a smaller trailer in tow, we've learned that going around to Alpine Junction and driving up the Snake River Canyon into Jackson, is the only way to go.

RE: Yellowstone from Mt. Rushmore

16 and 14 over the Bighorns are both tough, but doable with your rig. Avoid is not called the Oh MY God hill for nothing. LOL 16 has several campgrounds along the way and a dump station up near the top of the Pass. There is a nice little rv park on the west end of Ten Sleep. Out of Cody, there are several rv parks and federal campgrounds. Two of the fed Camps have electricity. Wapiti and Rex Hale. I advise against entrance to Yellowstone via northeast gate. The approaches are stunningly beautiful, but you won't see much of it because you'll be looking at the road if you're pulling your rig. We stayed at both Rex Hale and Wapiti. Both very nice, with one huge caveat. We picked up a pack rat at Rex Hale and to no avail, could not get rid of it until we got home two weeks later. By that time it had done plenty of damage in our basement, but we now know how to solve it next time should we be aware of an intruder!!

RE: Yellowstone from Mt. Rushmore

The entrance to the park is a climb but nothing bad. Going over the Big Horn mountains on the way thru is the worst of the drive but certainly doable if you aren't underpowered. Alternatively, you could swing way to the north to loop around the Big Horns. or inexperienced with mountain driving. We first drove over the Bighorn's years back with our F250 V10 towing a 27 ft TT. Slow is the key here. Slow up and slow down. With a diesel and plenty of power, that should not be an issue.

RE: Yellowstone from Mt. Rushmore

You'll be coming through Cody, WY to the East Entrance. There is a climb, but with your diesel and 36', it is not an issue. It's a beautiful route.
