RE: Bought a coffee boiler what is it?

We do up cold drip coffee. Use a whole can. Soak it over night. Drain the coffee (almost syrup) into a carafe. Keep in refrigerator. Use sort of like instant coffee. Fill coffee cup by about 1/5. Top up with water. Microwave 2 min. Presto. Smooth fresh coffee. The cold drip takes most of the bitterness out of coffee. So it is rich and smooth. My wife mixes about 1/3 coffee cup then tops up with milk. This is a New Orleans thing. A batch usually lasts about a week. Very easy. We like to use French Market coffee from New Orleans. There is a kit you can purchase. Just search on cold drip coffee if interested. Interesting. This is worth a try. Thanks for sharing.

RE: RV Service and Repair??????????????

A lot, I mean a lot of RVs have Dometic in them. So far we haven't had any cooling issues. I know that our RV tech says that fridge replacement alone is worth have an extended warranty for.

RE: Yellowstone Grant/Madison CG's

If you don't have a login to Campendium, do it. It's free, then check out their pics and reviews Madison Campground Yellowstone NP Grant Campground Yellowstone NP Just a note, we stayed at Bridge Bay and really liked it. The internal road are wider and the sites out in the open are spacious.

RE: Yellowstone Grant/Madison CG's

There are no measurement police, no one will come around with a tape measure to see if your unit is 30' or 30" 6" or 35' for that matter. If your unit fits in the site then you are good to go so long as it does not stick out into the roadway. I have never seen a NPS cg where the tow vehicle did not have room to pull into the site. Maybe not enough room but close. I had the rangers at Yosemite tell me to park my truck sideways once. Not that being said, if you cannot get into the site then you are out of luck, no refunds and they will not find you a different site. I appreciate your reply, but it does not answer the question. I know they will not measure my trailer, and I know if a vehicle is in the road you will be asked to leave. What I'm asking in my OP is if anyone has had experience with actually staying in these campgrounds, and if the sites will actually accommodate anything slightly over 30'. We drove through to check out Madison. We have a 35' FW (well 35' 5"). No way would we go in there but others, and plenty do. To us, the road is narrow, tight, and back in, except if you get an end site, would be a long process. If you are good, really good, at this type of situation, then go for it.

RE: If I have to ask I probably shouldn't

Wow. Go for it. It's a versatile piece!

RE: How High???

if you plan to travel into Canada, be sure to add the metric height. Not fun trying to do the conversion in your head after seeing a metric sign about 200 feet before a low overpass. Good idea. Thanks.

RE: How High???

We too got on top of our FW, measured the front highest to the back highest point (to take into consideration should we need to back under something), and posted both on a piece of paper, laminated it, and adhered it to the front upper inside windshield so the driver only has to do a quick glance. Our measurement included the satellite folded down, but our highest point in front was the front AC shroud, and also added a couple of inches.

RE: I hate dinettes

I still haven't figured out if everybody is talking about a stand-alone dinette or the built-in three-sided thing. We have the stand-alone, but I really wish I had the booth type. This is about built in dinettes whether two bench seats or the horseshoe shaped, and not the stand-alone which I interpret as even table and chairs dinette.

RE: RV Service and Repair??????????????

Well heck. If you were in Boise, I'd recommend United RV & Repair. They do all our work and are great! Thanks, I'm in Utah, I'll check them out. Tell Trent, I sent you. He does all our maintenance work. This winter we will have a new roof put on and new decals.

RE: Do you contribute ?

I once posted a long and well-deserved critique of an RV resort org. that we used to belong to operating in WA & OR, on RVparkreviews. Never got posted because unbeknownst to us, it was our first post there. Waste of time and would have been useful info. for somebody. Haven't posted since. I understand they've since changed that. Also not impressed with their format for rating/reviewing CGs/RV parks. Some perfectly good or excellent CGs we have been to sometimes get terrible reviews, some of which seem to be from newbies with little experience in different CGs and RV-ing or snobbish types who can't stand a little dust, kids, campfire smoke, etc. Can't keep everyone happy 100% of the time but some comments can really skew a rating unnecessarily. Same happened to me a couple of weeks ago on campgroundreviews.com! Frustrating. Never went back to re-do it.

RE: Break Out Another Thousand....

Maintenance . . . no payments on either the TV or the FW. We will be replacing the awning with an upgraded acrylic and replacing the slide seals. Just put new tires all the way around it, higher ply and load rating. The awning and seals will be about $1300 and the tires were close to $600.

RE: Yellowstone Mammoth CG in Mid October

Bussskipper, thanks for the feedback on the weather. I really appreciate it. That's that kind of weather I was thinking, one just never knows.

RE: Nose Piece Waxing/Cleaning Bugs Off

. . . and . . . bring that nose down using your front hydraulic jacks. That's what we do and we can reach the top with a long brush.

RE: Sad state of our National Parks-II

I wonder how many of the people here complaining about the state of the National Parks are using reduced rate passes vs. the $80 annual pass, and taking advantage of the 50% discount on camping. Discounts for seniors and the disabled mean less money to be used in the parks, yet the vehicles they drive have the same impact on the roads and their RV's occupy the same amount of space that a "full price" visitor's would... Oh Lord! Don't go there! I've waited a very long time to get this pass, but I had to pay the $80 instead of $10 that used to be offered and I thoroughly enjoy being able to pay 50% off for camping. There aren't a lot of good, really good, perks for retired persons, but this is one of them. All the other persons that pay full price more than make up for those of us that don't.

RE: The "three"happiest days...

Seems to be a big mystery how to pay a 15+ year loan off well before the due date. For us, we paid off the TV first having applied the paid off car payment to it. Then we turned around and applied those payments to the FW. Now that TV and FW are paid off, those payments are being applied to the house. That will be paid in full next year, two years earlier than retirement. We will be debt free and I will be calling Dave Ramsey!

RE: The "three"happiest days...

Congratulations. We know the feeling. We purchased ours new in 2010, financing it for 15 years also, but paid it off in full May of this year, about 6.5 years early! What a grand feeling it is.
