RE: Western US Itinerary Help

if doing Custer State park, I would absolutely do Mount Rushmore, it's like right next door, I would also do the Badlands and the rest of the Black Hills area, then up for a quick tour of Devils Tower, then over to Cody, good for a few days, then on into the east entrance of Yellowstone. Add in Crazyhorse Monument while you're there. A couple of hours is enough to check out the museum and see the status of the mounment.

RE: Tire pressure gauges

Here's another pressure question. You set your cold pressure (say 95psi). Then you travel to Alaska where the cold temperature is lower than when you set your pressures. You turn on your TPMS and yourr tire pressures are lower than you set. Do you inflate to get your starting pressures up to standard or just wait for the pressures to increase due to driving and temperature gains.

RE: Tire pressure gauges

Where are you guys finding tire shops that have calibrated gauges? Every place I have ever been to Chain, independent, clean, filthy, trustworthy, or disreputable, use what ever gauge the tech has in his pocket,or the big stick gauge on the compressor hose. Y,all are either really gullible or, live in much more exclusive zip code than I. Right, I bought a new set of tires for my toad. When I hooked up to the RV for a tow and turned on the TPMS, the toad readings were low. I manually checked and found every tire 4 psi lower than recommended.

RE: Transporting Raft from Campsite to Launch Ramp?

I'm posting these only for fun. This 1st one was in Alaska. This one my daughter sent me yesterday on the way to the shore.

RE: 2020 Jayco GrayHawk Prestige 29 MVP Water Overflow?

His Jayco does not have a gravity fill. It fills from the City water connection. Doug Mine does also. There is a selctor valve for filling, normal usage (with water pump), city and winterize. Next to the hose connection, there is a hole which is the overflow.

RE: 2020 Jayco GrayHawk Prestige 29 MVP Water Overflow?

Do you have a little hole next to the water connection? I no longer trust my overflow which had a large bug crawl in it and die. M tank did swell up. Fortunately, caught it without damage (I have nightmares about that). Our tank is under the master bed. Now I lift the bed and watch the water level as it fills.

RE: Class C Campsite Photos. Show your stuff.

Here's another one. My favorite boondock place. Found it in 2005 in a truck camper and marked it on my GPS. Stopped there last August. On the Cassiar Highway on the way to the Yukon.

RE: Class C Campsite Photos. Show your stuff.

That shot reminds me of when we were there in '08, we got set up in the CG, and wanted to go up to the Tower, I thought the road we came in on dead ended a little past the CG, basically it does, right in the parking lot of the Visitor Center, AT the Tower, which we found out AFTER hiking up the hill to the Tower, with a lot of huffing & puffing, I'm still not living that one down. But all in all we did enjoy the hike Oh, my God, I can surely sympathize with you. That is a hike.

Devil's Tower National Monument after a long, dirty drive back from Alaska.

RE: Help with Long Term planning for Alaska

I did Alaska in 2005 in a truck camper pulling a little box trailer so I had everything I needed, including an inflatible boat. Other than 1 week in Alaska when my wife flew up, it just just me and my dog. Last year, my wife and I (also a dog) made the same trip in our Class C. Much more comfortable. Since we towed a 4 wheel drive SUV we could access everything I was able to in the pickup in 2005. We experienced no damage to our rig, except 2 windshield chips - one in Wyoming in a construction zone and one on the SUV driving on the Seward Highway. Just take it slow and agree with other advice to slow down and move as far right as possible when trucks and other rvs are coming the other direction. Great trip - you will really enjoy it.

RE: Is anyone here into surf fishing?

With the right rig, you can cast a lot farther than 40'. I can get about 100 yards.

RE: Anybody do a fall (sept/oct) Newfoundland Labrador

We're thinking about doing an eastern Canada trip this September. Many of the campgrounds in eastern canada close in September. I was thinking about the same trip. Still some nice places open but as you get to the end of September lots are closed or closing. Since I doubt we would be staying for days at a location, I'd be happy to boondock. Anyone know a good website for this info in Canada? Thanks,

RE: to plug in or not to plug in when mhome is at home

I do not plug in when not using the rig. I did install a disconnect switch in the positive line from the batteries which I turn off. When I do turn on the switch, after weeks of being off, the meter indicates 12.5V on 2 6 volt batteries.

RE: Recommendations for Moab campground

Look into Deadhorse State Park. This is about 30 mins west of Moab but a really spectacular State Park. Great campsites and the view from the overlook is unbelievable. Even if youo don't stay there, it's worth a day visit. Not sure they have full hookups but definately electric with dump station.

RE: E-450 Spare Tire carriers

I went with the Roadmaster carrier. Got a nice cover for it. Tow my SUV behind it. No problems to Alaska and back. And did not need it.

RE: Uncrowded Colorado campgrounds

Hundreds of boondocking locations and NF campgrounds. It is camping paradise. We are starting in the Pagosa Springs area and working north from their next month. We did the same 2 weeks ago. Found a beautiful spot just south of Poncha Springs. No one around at all. Suspect there are more using this site now.

RE: Leveling Blocks vs jack pads

We have jacks on our Class C. They work great. I made blocks out of 2x6 cut 12' long and alternated 2 layers to make 3+" blocks 12x12. My jacks are pretty far under the rig. Got a pole with a hook to push them in under the jack pad and then pull them out. Then I put SnapPads on. They are awesome. Now I only use the blocks when the ground is really soft or we are so uneven I need to raise one sife or front up a lot more than normal.

RE: TSD Fuel Card

Just use your TDS card at Love's, TA or PETRO and love it.

RE: Opening of National Parks, Forests & State Parks

Does anyone know if Colorado BLM land will be open May 1 for boondocking?
