RE: Want to replace incandescent bulbs with brighter LED

they almost give too much light/bright. go with the softer ones.

RE: Bad lands area

we just did that trip last summer. it was one of our best. a few comments. Parking at mount rushmore is 1/2 off for seniors. the senior pass is worth it for devils tower(free) and the badlands(free). we got our lifetime pass a few years ago when it was $20 just before the price increase, is it $80 now? we've camped at devils tower koa a couple times and the belle fourche campground twice since at the tower. much preferred belle fourche as it saves a boatload of $ but no electricity. didn't do caves this trip, but have done them and they are both pretty good. unless you are a gambler, skip deadwood. we stop at wall drug kind of as a tradition every time we are out there. great scenery and tons of buffalo in the badlands. cedar pass campsites are just bumpouts along the roads, but it is convenient and crowded but quiet. note: the shower building doesn't have interior lights so take your own or shower during daylight. one little kid was in there with his father and screamed at a level that hurt my ears as he was afraid of showering in the dark. good food at the longhorn cafe in sundance (on the way to the tower) it is easy to find as half of a longhorn is sticking out of the front of it. unfortunately the circle b cowboys cookout/show is out of business. it was the best of all the ones we've gone to around the country. spokane ghost town was a disappointment. the metal store in hill city was good. amazed at all the stuff the guy makes out of metal.

RE: Best mouse trap?

after using mousetraps for a number of years i decided to get several tubes of caulk and crawled under my trailer sealing up any and every opening. i left the traps anyway and haven't had a mouse in 5 years. pay particular attention around wheel wells as a main way they get off the ground are the tires and anything else that touches the ground like jacks and cords.

RE: propane connection

I changed out one of my 30 lb hoses to a 5 footer. when i want to attach it to my 100 lb tank i just unscrew the green coupler and screw it onto the big tank. i got the 5 footer with the green hose as it more flexible during cold weather where as the black hose is stiff. and it is easy to wind up when using the 30 pounder.

RE: Traveling in 23 ft trailer with cat

Allie Cat goes camping whenever we go since she was 8 weeks old. She seems to sort of forget over the winter. So we take her out to the trailer for an hour or so at least twice before our first excursion in the spring. We will also drive her around in the truck for maybe half an hour a couple of times as well. Our camping procedure is: put her in her carrier and take out to the truck. After we are on the road 10 minutes or so we will open up her carrier which is on the seat in the quad cab. She usually comes out right away and sits between us on the console on one of her blankets. The litter box, food, water are available on the floor but i can't remember her doing any of that while driving. If we stop for more than 10 or 15 minutes the whole set-up is transferred to the trailer. It is kind of a hassle but we want her with us rather than at home like we did with our previous cats, Kitty and Puddy Tat. Oh, one other thing for traveling. When she senses that we are stopping for gas etc. she will go into her carrier on her own. Once and a while she will get fooled at a traffic light and go in and it we always laugh about that.

RE: Furnace

check your co2 detector is doing. if it is going to orange or red it is a furnace issue. take the furnace out which isn't easy and check your electrodes and wiring. my furnace started acting up just like yours. taped a bare wire and replaced electrodes and it has worked fine since.

RE: Tow Vehicle Rear End Sag

start by lowering the ball. then reposition you weight distributing hitch according to hitch requirements. then you should be fine.

RE: Fresh water problem

yup. that's what it is. the outside hoses are usually hooked up to bypass the water softener as mine outside spigots do.
