RE: Eastbound I-90 Chicago

It's 2 lane with small towns

RE: Mount Rushmore to Glacier NP

Lot of new pavement on 2 between Shelby and Wolf Point. I usually drop south there and take Mt 13 between Wolf Point and Circle then Mt 200S to Glendive. They are good roads also

RE: Eastbound I-90 Chicago

I doubt I've been caught more than 1/2 dozen like that. But then I've only been through there 40-50 times in the last 15 yrs. Early morning or later in the evening is the time I try to go through there. When I'm headed east/home I don't care if it's going to be midnight or so when I hit the Michigan border rest area that's my goal and I'll spend the night there

RE: Mount Rushmore to Glacier NP

Here are the vehicle restrictions. Any vehicle over 21 feet long, 10 feet high and 8 feet wide (including mirrors) is restricted from the Going-to-Sun Road. I've done 89 from Browning to Great Falls more than once and felt it was a decent road. If you go through Billings I've found the Costco and Sams Club there to have the least expensive fuel in the state. The Sams Club is the easiest to access and is visible from I-90 at exit 447. According to Gas Buddy right now they are both at $4.64 for diesel

RE: Eastbound I-90 Chicago

I hate toll roads! I-80 is toll, I think! I would go farther south and pick up US 52 and then US 30. Then I-65. From there would need to know destination. I don't know about 52 but 30 is full of stop lights and heavy traffic

RE: Eastbound I-90 Chicago

I never haul through Chicago only around it like this. I would take 39 at Rockford. It's roughly 50 mi longer but the only toll booth is where I-294 and I-80 join.

RE: Auxiliary fuel tank and gravity vs electronic pump

When I had diesel, I used gravity feed. With gas, I have to pump. I would not pump diesel, because if you leave the pump on it will have to go somewhere after the truck tank is full. So, if you pump, you need a return line to the deck tank. Just saying. Diesel or gas you overfill the tank it's going somewhere. A return line isn't needed. The trick is to have a reminder such as a buzzer or light in the cab to remind you the pump is on. If one of those doesn't do the trick well, "You Can't Fix Stupid"

RE: Help with fuel transfer valve

Use an electric fuel pump and forget the other things they are not needed

RE: Auxiliary fuel tank and gravity vs electronic pump

A simple electric fuel pump and a light or buzzer in the cab as a reminder to shut the pump off. I did one for my brother that way. I put a flashing LED in the dash for when the pump was on Any recommendations on a pump set up such as a brand? Nothing complicated or expensive. Here's one https://www.amazon.com/Electric-Transfer-Universal-Pressure-2-5-4psi/dp/B07JPDZC4M

RE: Arizona: Hwy 89 from Congress to Prescott

RE: Can you jump your 5’er with your truck?

GEEZE My first impression was you were talking about jumping the 5er like the Dukes. Maybe I need more coffee.

RE: Interstate rest area stops

Not very thoughtful taking up 2 spaces in a rest area

RE: Whistling Truck

You're wondering if it's the cab lights, I've had more than one truck with cab lights and never experienced any whistling. One thing you could do is take a screwdriver and make sure all screws on those lights are tight

RE: connect coach and house batteries?

You have a drain someplace. Use a battery shutoff on the coach battery. Here's an example https://i.imgur.com/lLfCFmbl.jpg

RE: Crater Lake 3rd week of June

We were there around June 6 in 19. The road around the lake was still closed due to snow. The picture shows a portion of the road around that you could only walk not drive. https://i.imgur.com/YBg4ypql.jpg

RE: New store space

JRscooby How does making sure your truck is safe give them the right to search in the sleeper?

RE: New store space

It's hardly a hidden compartment when there are hinges and a hole for the finger to open it

RE: New Tires On The RV

Cummins, you said trim rings but I'm wondering if you misspoke and meant caps like these. If so the standard 8 lug is 6.5" https://i.imgur.com/Pk66uo2l.jpg
