Montana Route Question

I'm working on the Montana section of our 3 month road trip this summer. We'll be traveling in our 2020 26 Ft class C RV no tow. I'm looking at taking Montana Rt. 1, the Pintler Veterans Scenic Highway to Montana Rt 38, Skalkho Rd to Grantsdale Mt. enroute Lolo Mt. and Rt 12 west. Rt 1 looks fine but I'm wondering about RT 38. Would I have any problems with taking this road with my class C through to Grantsdale? We'll be there around the first week of September. As always, your advise is appreciated.

Flooring Glue

I had the dealer do some warranty work on my 2020 Jayco 26XD class C in the spring last year. They had to cut the vinyl (I think it's vinyl) flooring to get the work done. Now the vinyl flooring in the work area is coming unglued. What would be the correct glue to repair this? I'm sure it's flooring glue, but is there a special one for RV's? I did a search but couldn't seem to find a good reference. Fortunately this problem is in an area that is pretty much out of the way and nobody walks there. It's a slit about 12 inches long, both sides can be gently lifted about an inch. I looked on line too but only found 1 gallon containers. I only need a small amount..

RE: Yellowstone second thoughts.

A bit off topic but on the way back, if you haven't already give the Devils Tower a look see.

RE: Apex Club on Reserve America

Thanks. I did more research and it doesn't do much for me. I'll just extend my Passport America. It worked out good for us last year.

Apex Club on Reserve America

Just finished reserving a few nights camping with and I noticed an ad for the Apex Club. Some kind of discount thing for camping and accessories. Tried to look up some information about it, like membership fees but couldn't find much. Anybody use this?

RE: Rising fuel, will it be any different this time?

DW and I were talking about our upcoming trip out west later this Summer. We'll go as far as half of our "road trip" fund will take us. I used $8 per gallon for gas,$50 per night for campground and $20 per day for food to figure our daily expenses. These numbers are high ( I hope) and should bring us to the west side of North Dakota,then we'll see what things look like. My concern is gas supply. Right now we aren't seeing any shortages but if we start seeing gas shortages this will really add a wild card to the deck.

Locking gas cap

Picked up a Stand locking gas cap 10510 for my 2019 E450 class C. At my friendly neighborhood auto parts store. $14.00. No tether though. I might make one up. We'll see. I park my RV in my driveway so it is probably ok but things are getting a bit more interesting "Out there" so just taking a little precaution.

RE: Salem, Massachusetts

2X on the Salisbury Beach State Reservation. It's about 10 minute drive when you Exit I95. It's a big State Park. Out Front is right on the Ocean and on the south side is the mouth of the Merrimack River. They have Water and electric sites and a 6 island dump station. We camp there a couple times a year.

RE: Folding front bumper step

2X on the Hitchmate Tirestep. On suggestions by the folks here I bought one 3 years ago. Folds up nicely and I can reach the whole windshield on my E450.

Interesting video Thanks.

RE: Hardware costs for flat-towing (brackets/wiring/tow bar)....

VA-Apraisr 2X. I have the same questions. I hope you don't mind if I add this question. IS an All-Terain better than a standard tow bar?

RE: Help me plan our trip - The Dakotas

This summer we will be running west on US 12 through the Dakota's. A couple of stops I'm looking forward to is the Shadehill Recreation area in Shadehill SD. Supposed to be a nice camp. While there we are going to visit Lemmon which has a petrified wood park and museum and some neat shops. Next is the Enchanted Highway between Regent ND and Gladstone ND. Regent has a good overnight campground. Then on to Teddy Roosevelt NP. I'm thinking of staying in Bowman at the Twin Butte Campground. Supposed to be OK and a good home base if the campgrounds near the NP are full. As mentioned Medora ND looks like a good spot too. There is a Medora Musical every night, looks like fun cowboy stuff!! We are going to be there in mid August or so, our RV has Mass. Plates. Hope we into each other.

RE: Calculated MPG

I keep track of our long trips. For example. With our 2020 26XD class C on a Ford E450 chassis used about 1,350 gallons of gas on last years 9600 mile cross country trip. We spent about $3700 on gas. That comes out to 7.1 GPM. The average cost was around $2.75 per gallon. This year we are planning another cross country trip of roughly the same distance. So out of my new cowboy hat that I bought in Eagle Nest NM on our trip last year picked this years fuel cost as being around $3.75 per gallon. Roughly $1350 more this year. I suspect it will be more though. Anyway, This won't stop us from going, it just means I have work 4 days per week instead of 3 to make up the difference. Retired but healthy knock on wood! For me I like to plan ahead a little. Oh I also added in another 10% of our campground costs, but that is another thread.

RE: US 12 Lolo MT to Kooskia Id

Thanks for this information. I'm not sure how far west we will go yet. We ran the lengthy of US 2 four years ago but our destinations were Glacier National and US 101 at Olympia around the loop then south.. This trip we want to check out the Dakota's, Montana and Idaho more closely. So at this time I'm not sure how far west We will go. Fortunately we have plenty of time and if it gets to close autumn we'll head south.

US 12 Lolo MT to Kooskia Id

Laying out our 3 to 4 month 2022 trip. Our plan is to pick up US 12 west of Minnesota and run to somewhere in Oregon with numerous stops along the way. We will be traveling in our 2020 26ft Class C with no tow. I'm looking at the section of US 12 between Lolo Mt and Kooskia Idaho. I see that it runs through mountains of the Nez-Perce Clearwater National Forest. I've been Checking it out on Google maps but I'm wondering if any folks here have been over it in a class C similar to ours. I looks like a good camping area and exploring. As always your advise is appreciated.
