RE: Mt Rainier and North Cascades

Only White River is first come, first served. You need reservations at Cougar Rock and Ohanapecosh (but there are a few sites that are FC/FS, and all of the good sites are reservation only). There are no hook ups at any campground in Rainier.

RE: Recycling engine heat for hot water tank

There is nothing all that special about a RV Motor Aid water heater. I think they come in 6 gallon and 10 gallon sizes. Here are install instructions Motor Aid Install I have one in my RV. It's located in the rear corner, as far as you can get from the engine/heater core. It's just heater hose and Y's in the hot & return. Now, your question about how much would a dealer charge you to install one. Quoting you a price for a vehicle you don't even own yet? That would be a little difficult. But expect to pay somewhere in the $700 - $800 range for the Motor Aid water heater.

RE: H44 recall

Why would you not want to have the fix made? Do you really want your engine to run worse, and have soot problems? Link to Recall H44.pdf The Engine Control Module (ECM) on about 39,100 of the above vehicles may not actuate the EGR valve sufficiently to prevent soot accumulation, resulting in improper valve operation or sticking. Improper valve operation may cause excessive exhaust emissions, illumination of the Malfunction Indicator Lamp and a vehicle limp-in condition.

RE: 30 amps for 50 amp trailer

No split - only one will work. No you can't damage anything. Basically you are only powering up half of the breaker panel. Only the things on the hot side will work.Incorrect post. The 30/50 adapter connects both 50A hots to the 30A hot so you will have 120V everywhere in the rig. Run either A/C and it they are smaller both may be OK. You will not damage anything by using the adapter, assuming good pedestal voltage. IF you have a EMS then you may need to switch it from 20A to 30A since it cannot tell the difference and will default to 20A. Sorry, my error. Thinking of a different wiring system.

RE: Windows 10 Windows Media Player??

Have you ever imported or created playlists from other programs? I don't know for sure, but it would not surprise me if WMP is restoring playlists from the playlist folder. So find your playlist folder and see how many playlists are in that folder. You may have to delete them from there. Where does Windows Media Player store playlists? By default, playlists are saved with a .wpl extension in the Playlists folder, which is usually located in the Music folder. I no longer use WMP for a number of reasons. My suggestion would be try the free version of J. River Media Jukebox.

RE: Lassen Volcanic NP Highway 89

Just booked a site at Manzanita Lake this morning! We'll be driving a class C with toad. Probably coming in on 44. Current plan is just use the toad to explore 89 inside the park. Then departing Northbound on 44/89 and connecting up with I-5 near Mt. Shasta.

RE: Water Pump Issue

Your check valve has failed, or is stuck. It could be as simple as re-seating the check valve. Here are the instructions to fix. Helpful hint: Never push the check valve in when the systems is pressurized, even just a little bit of water pressure. If you can't fix right away, all you need is a male garden hose plug. Just screw it in where you would put your hose and it will seal the pressure.

RE: New Steps

I know these are not what you are looking at but give these a look if you haven't already. I put these on our rig and they are very stable and they store outside vs inside your rig. One of the reasons we chose this was when ours is in storage the other ones wouldn't have enough room to swing out without hitting the wall. The other reason is my wife didn't want to have to clean the steps all the time or have a chance that any dirt or mud from the steps to fall in our fifth wheel. Anyway these only took maybe a half hour to install and I imagine the others aren't to difficult either. I know some people have had issues with binding on the bottom of the door with the ones you are looking at. Torklift Dan I don't have any direct experience with this set of steps, but I will jump in and give Torklift a two thumbs up recommendation. I have been using them for for service for several decades.

RE: Nevada Beach NFS - Near Lake Tahoe

I would try calling or the concessionaire. Nevada Beach Campground and Day Use Area Pavilion are operated by a private concessionaire, California Land Management. For campground information (this number is not for reservations) call 775-588-5562. My guess is still waiting to decide if they will open because of covid-19.

RE: Auburn Washington suggestions

There is a state park out by black diamond farther east if you are interested, just not a lot of facilities in this area. Skip the koa in Kent. State Park near Maple Valley/Black Diamond is Kanaskat-Palmer State Park. And another vote against Kent KOA. I have heard that it's been upgraded recently, but it's still on a major 5 lane arterial, and it's across the street from an Amazon fulfilment center, traffic 24 hours a day.

RE: Arizona Hwy 89 ALT info please

So back to the OP's original question. I've done this section, once each way (years apart). Other than elevation gain, there is nothing that I would consider dangerous. Are there some spots where you could go off a drop off? Sure, but not any more than any other road. There is 2600 feet of elevation between Jacobs Lake and the flat section of the road around Vermillion Cliffs. In just over 13 miles. I'm sure the section they are referring to is the last few miles where the switch backs are, before you get to the bottom. Check out Google street view to see what the switch backs look like. Both my trips were in a 30 Foot class C.
