RE: Yellowstone roads closed!

Both Loops are now open and the have suspended the odd/even tag entry for the time being. Not sure about Lamar valley road but NE entrance is still shut down. Beartooth highway open to the ski area about 23 miles. Gardiner entrance won't be open this year and maybe not for a long time.

RE: Cheaha state park in Alabama

We visited it years ago. Don't recall much about the road, other than it was steep. Great park we need a re-visit.

RE: Acrylic sheet to replace skylight bubble?

As I recall they had build a frame to raise the sheet off the roof just a bit. That is the curb and it's purpose is to raise the seal off the roof to prevent water puddling on top of the seal and working it's way thru the seal eventually.

RE: Acrylic sheet to replace skylight bubble?

Make sure you get the sealant problem fixed. We went thru this on a house skylight and never got it sealed and it always leaked. Finally covered it over with roofing. So look at how it is sealed now and duplicate that, don't spare the sealant. I'd use at least 0.25in lexan. And if there is a curb above the roof surface, preserve that. Our two skylights are hazed over but we aren't looking out of them and they aren't leaking. If it ain't broke don't fix it. Engineering law.

RE: 2022 campgrounds

State Parks are mostly hard to get into, and weekends are when the locals come out to camp.

RE: 2022 campgrounds

Since leaving North Florida we've stayed in one National Forest cg, five COE cg, one fairgrounds, and two private cg. No problems finding a site and we are now in Missouri heading into Iowa and over the river to a State Park in Illinois for 3 days then up to Wisconsin for another COE park for 7 days. Once again I think the cg shortage is limited to states with policies that suppress campgrounds.

RE: Photos of New Fishing Bridge RV Park - YELLOWSTONE

Have never stayed at FB, but for some reason, I thought the major changes were re-doing the utilities, ie: water & electric, I wasn't aware that they were doing any major physical changes to the sites, however, I have been known to be wrong before. ;) Looking at the sat photo above the RV's seem to be more widely spaced with trees around each site. The original site was the large bare open field and the RV's were so close that we could clearly hear conversation in the next unit. May be fewer sites tho.

RE: Photos of New Fishing Bridge RV Park - YELLOWSTONE

We drove past it last September 30th in a snowstorm, it looked very different but we got no photos. The gate was closed anyway. Try Google sat view. Fishing Bridge sat view, unknown date

Corps of Engineers changing host policy

We've stayed in 4 COE cg in the last month or so. One had camp ground hosts who did not go thru the bid process and were not paid other than the FHU site. That was Hardridge Creek in AL. In The Narrows in KY, they did go thru the bid process and were paid, and at Wax in KY they were bid workers but said others COE sites were all volunteer? They thought COE was trying to do away with the bid process all together. That bid has inhibited me because how do you know how much to bid? Anyway something is going on, are they not getting folks to bid or are they dumping that process to save money?

RE: Unique situation: What tow vehicle checks all the boxes?

Pickup with a hard solid tonneau cover (not roll or fold) and bedrug. Makes the bed like a huge carpeted trunk. And when you buy a bed rug, go to Rural King or Tractor Supply and buy a Stall Mat and save yourself hundreds of bucks. Lol stall mat vs bed rug? How are those even remotely the same? Hmm, I have a stall mat in my 6"4" bed. It's maybe an inch thick, hard surfaced. Admittedly it does not fill around the wheel wells and is 4" short. But at $55 vs $250 I can live with that. It does a great job of cushioning the bed to save my knees. And the high friction surface keeps stuff from sliding easily. What more does a real truck bed mat do anyway?

RE: Unique situation: What tow vehicle checks all the boxes?

You did not mention the total cargo weight capacity, that is usually the killer on these fake SUV models. If you are towing 9000# get a pickup with a crew cab. A vehicle made to do towing

RE: 2022 campgrounds

Well here is our real world experience. Starting in N. Florida we've camped in 7 spots (one future cg with reservations), had zero problems with our first choice. Left FL, camped in one NF spot in N FL, two COE cg in AL, one private cg in AL, a county Fairground in TN (Escapade) and now in KY COE and moving to another KY COE for the 4th weekend. Just about every place had plenty of open sites, even thru the weekends. So once again I have to say that this so called shortage is limited to the east coast, especially the NE and maybe parts of Cali. I don't know about OR and WA. I suspect all of those states have onerous regulations that force campground owners to quit. I have seen blog posts from one in Cali who said he was pulling his business out of the state. That leaves fewer government CG to supply the demand, leading to cg being booked solid.

RE: Is It Worth It?

I've never seen 15% grades, Hwy 12 has a short section of 12% IIRC and I've seen 10% fairly often. We've done the Moki Dugway, once towing a light camper (followed the GPS error) but quite a few times in our HD truck. We've driven back country roads, like the Harnet loop, that may have steeper grades but they aren't signed. Hwy 12 did make the truck oil temp spike when we stopped at a pull out, and shut off the truck, but otherwise the truck just downshifts and pulls straight up the grade.

RE: Is It Worth It?

What did you like towing with more??? That's your answer. To a certain extent, but where you will be towing is the most important. Mountain travel, the you need a diesel. Flat lands east of the big muddy, you can live with a gasser. Of course you can drag your RV up those 7 or 8% grades, but the engine will be working very hard. 7-8% grade is STEEP for an interstate, reality, federal funfed interstates are suppised to be 6% or less, with short spurts to 8. Ive personally necer found interstates geades to be an issue. Marty If you are the sort of RVer who never leaves the interstates then fine. But if you want to drive Colorado roads, see Bryce and drive Hwy 12, and otherwise see what this country has to offer. Then no, 7 or 8% grades are mild.

RE: programing of Mercedes key fob

I just got a fob for our 2018 RAM 2500. The locksmith had to order the fob, the he had a programming box about 12 inches by 10 inches with a screen. Took the original key put it in the ignition switch, plugged the box into the OBDII port and fiddled for 10 minutes before getting it programmed. Cost $228. No telling what the Dodge dealer would charge.
