Wapiti Campground vs Rex Hale Campgroung - NFS Cody WY

I am trying to decide between these two campgrounds between Cody and Yellowstone. From what I can see on the websites it's a flip of the coin between the two. Has anybody actually Camped at one of these campgrounds? What is your choice between the two and why.

Gros Ventre Campground, Dump and Fill - Fee ???

Next summer we plan to be boomdocking or dry camping in the Grand Teton area. Looking for a place to dump and fill with portable water. Does Gros Ventre Campground charge a fee to use their dumpsite if we do not camp at the campground? Any other suggestions for a place to dump and

RE: Draining hot water tank

You don't drain your hot water heater at home when you leave for a few weeks or month do you? The same goes for your RV hot water heater. Oh by the way it's a cold water heater. It probably is best to not drain it because if it's full and oxygen will not get in and cause parts to rust.

Peel and Sick Vinyl Plank.

Has anyone replaced their carpet with peel and stick vinyl plank? Would like to know some real life experiences. Also what brand product did you use. I am concerned that with the wide temperature variation in an RV that this vinyl plank will not stick.

RE: Jacking up an RV

Be sure to put the jack where the axles join the springs otherwise you run the risk of bending the frame.

RE: Best mouse trap?

A glue trap is not very humane in my opinion. How would you like to be trapped by your hair. The best trap is an old-fashioned bang on the head baited with peanut butter. However, I use the green poison bait that you can get at Lowe's or Home Depot. This is basically a blood thinner. After they eat it they get thirsty and go outside in search of water and die. The bait is a green cake about an inch long that I throw behind the drawers underneath the couch by the water heater any place out of sight.

RE: Reality of RV length restrictions?

I have full time since 2006 with a 30 foot travel trailer. The overall length on a 30 foot travel trailer is a little longer than the overall length on the 30 foot 5th wheel. So last year, we purchased a 32 foot 5th wheel. This is about the maximum length you can use to get into many national parks. Even with the 32 foot 5th wheel I have to cheat and tell the reservation people that it is only 30 feet. My preferred camping is in national parks, BLM land, or national forest land. I very seldom camp in private campgrounds. I would strongly suggest that you try to find a trailer that is very close to 30 feet maximum length. Anything longer will limit the number of campsites in national parks that you will be able to camp in. Having said that our last 5th wheel is 36 feet.

RE: Inquiring minds want to know.-- Strange bracket

The piece that is sticking up is an anti-billow device which keeps your topper from rolling out when driving. Can't say regarding the bracket. I installed the same brand toppers on my trailer and there were no brackets like that in the box. Looks like this is the answer Thanks

Inquiring minds want to know.-- Strange bracket

I have a Montana 5th wheel. At the awning which covers the slide outs there is a bracket that I do not know what it is used for. Each of the 3 slides has 1 of these brackets. There is only one per slide. "border=0" Next question, the awning looks like there is a locking tab. Should this awning be locked while traveling? If so how?

EternaBond vs Kohree RV Seal Repair Tape

Today I received the roll of Kohree RV ceiling repair tape that I ordered from Amazon. I have not use the tape yet but on 1st inspection I am somewhat disappointed. The tape appears to be about one half the thickness of EternaBond and the glue is also somewhat thinner than EternaBond. On 1st inspection the glue does appear to be as sticky as EternaBond. I think the application will be much the same as with EternaBond. And since I plan to overcoat the tape with Henry's 887 tropi-cool I think all will work out okay. This might explain why the price is also one half the price of EternaBond.

Eternabond tape + Henry's 887 tropi-cool

In my prior posting I discussed my plans to recoat my 5th wheel roof. Thanks for all your comments. I have decided to use Henry's 887 tropi-cool. My plan now is to also use Henry's 885 to cover the seams combined with Eternabond tape. My question is should I put down the tape 1st and then cover it with the 885 which I will then cover with 887 or put down the 885 and covered this with the with the tape which I then will cover with the 887. In other words should the tape be in the middle or directly on the roof covered by Henry's coating. Links:885 887

RE: Western Washington to Nashville

Nashville is a fantastic place to live except for one problem there's nothing to see within 500 miles. Depending on what you have seen in your other travels, you might want to take in Yellowstone, Grand Teton, the national parks of Utah and Monument Valley. Then you have 2 days hard-driving to Nashville. Even in mid April, if you hit bad weather simply hold up for a day and continue trip. So any of the many routs from Washington to Nashville should work for you.

RE: Cedar Pass campground in the Badlands NP SD

Years ago in Yellowstone Fishing Bridge did not give a discount, but the other campgrounds did. Because of the size of my 5th and the number of people at YS campgrounds I now stay at NFS campground outside the park.

RE: Cedar Pass campground in the Badlands NP SD

Golden age pass is only for entry in the national parks, does not give discount for use of facility in the parks. From the US government website: Bold added The Senior Pass may provide a 50 percent discount on some amenity fees charged for facilities and services such as camping, swimming, boat launch, and specialized interpretive services. The Senior Pass generally does NOT cover or reduce special recreation permit fees or fees charged by concessioners. Golden Age Passports are no longer sold. However, these passes will continue to be honored according to the provisions of the pass.

Cedar Pass campground in the Badlands NP SD

I just booked 3 nights for next year at Cedar Pass campground in the Badlands NP of South Dakota. I was surprised; the cost per night was $38 plus $4 for an extra person. Even with my golden age passport I only got a discount of $11 per night not half price as in most national parks. I could not get the Golden age discount online I had to call them directly by phone. This is what happens when a private concession takes over a campground.

RE: RV Furnature ???

I'd sell it without and discount it a bit. Let the new buyer get their own. As a buyer of used 5th I like to pick my new furnature.

RE: questions.... I have them.. :D

On my 5th wheel the fresh water tank have a overflow/vent that is covered by a square plastic housing. Push up hard on the housing and it pops off. Then you can attach a gravity fill funnel to fill the tank. "border=0" For Full-Size Image.

RE: Grand Canyon north Rim

The road (state Route 87?) From Jacob Lake to the North rim a drive of about 20 miles is normally closed until the North rim opens. Thus, until the North rim opens you cannot get within 20 miles of the rim. There are some outstanding boom docking places by the national forest service once the road opens.
