RE: Rear picture window model suggestions

I don't have an outside picture but this is the rear living of our 32' Montana Mountaineer. To the right is a slide which has a couch and dining table https://i.imgur.com/AeY0yVZl.jpg

RE: SoCal to East Coast Fall Colors

Actually you wouldn't need to go as far as the east coast. Mn. Wi Mi and northwestern Ontario all boast great fall colors

RE: Yellowstone Trip

I personally love going over the Bighorn Mtn on 14a but agree that for most people it is not a good idea. I don't mind the extreme nature of 14a. I have gone over it in both directions with a variety of vehicle combinations. I have also gone over on 16 and would highly recommend it to most people. You will still be doing some steep and twisted roads. I feel the same way about 14 & 14A

RE: Break away cable

The coiled cables pretty much eliminate any chance of it snagging. Mine isn't hooked on the handle - it's hooked into the handle locking hasp with a carabiner. Serves to keep the handle locked as well as attach the brake cable. https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/to7oOvUOtlUzSBuc2ALgxF5WrRIyPIa3AC7d6M-BuNM7GCBKaYkbayhKnS3sUPLNLsi4nljG-Xys982joeC4auNjdw5nkvMhA5MnJODn1SpB16tfqeiGbzawHl7b6UA3xfh9dEoXMwJMkfBiQ2jNk3vazQ2_yJRDYAySIlkvyBX4bkDypK36y6yJ1pLlZ84lSbi_7ZmWk_4MEvTaWHCtr5cYTpIkIH_MzPqYNzjuwHRywfdU2Vi0s76hGX-C0c5mOJ9msy14bqvchBrS0R554eA_cSXyxEqCLgG8Ds3lzQ-A9ve4DvlwuWUHSg_Zqj9qbJWIbnxvY8kD4XgUdoaXvi94Ls_IXHMYo262KkT0JuXCEQthCnKdHlZ2dpe6uoDBlZLtG45Hhi9W_aiCS4kKWwuNBJNv6knkAto3VGHQAaTRCNAewvA5V3aiCGiWaSdsBTBNrZHXKXks8sz0R8S_9PQ8-TiWPAfD3AoAHJwN2s3lmNlH_MULDf4b3bm_Ab4lIfqP318ip6Si-ZXDLF2vaFqYdkjQ0Cd0LoK7H73aF79YP1TpcHuoLoJMkXycd1ikIJdQpHNjORjk7j8w46ez-S5OctlPTa1FmoF7LHp3xTwt1mhazm0TzphjDHOQYM3u-bIsjEqoALWvDXjHu5wg1Xj-dFXRAZA2qIcxt7sBKxQRVyqbjTfFS-EZdutXMmOk8bGWQ6D2tqib0qwCmU7UcS0gO9jofLAdsNUieCytTXRqgXd7=w1091-h818-no width=640 The breakaway should be pointed towards the direction of pull. Not up as shown in this picture. If you loose the 5er the pin may stay in , break the loop off the pin or break the box. At best it will be delayed in activating the breaks

RE: Missoula, MT to Columbia Falls and W Glacier

Taking 35 at Polson is a little slower going than staying on 93 but is very doable. We were just through there in June with our 28' 5er. Been awhile since I was on 206 and that was with a 34' bumper pull. Road at that time was fine.

RE: Oregon or what to do after Glacier

If you get to Oregon and are at all interested in aquariums you should see the Oregon Coast Aquarium in New Port, it's fantastic.; We stayed at Sea & Sand RV Park north of Depoe Bay while in that area. Bullards Beach State Park was another nice campground. If you do rustic The Dalles Campground just outside Mt Rainier National Park was decent but most sites are small such as for tenters and small trailers. We fit with our 27' but not a lot of sites that size. Regarding your dog, we had our 4 yr old 70# Golden Doodle with us on the 5 week trip and he was great but we also didn't go into Canada.

RE: Single Rear Wheel vs Dually - Whats the Best for You

We also go for rides in this. https://i.imgur.com/wIDAS5xl.jpg Got a Hemi? Yes and the car is a 17 T

RE: Single Rear Wheel vs Dually - Whats the Best for You

It's hard to understand some of you guys. To tender to drive a truck other than for towing. How would you ever have managed when trucks really did ride rough, especially 3/4 and 1T's? My wife has had Caddies and now drives a Buick and doesn't mind the ride in the dually a bit. We take it many times instead of her car and did so even when she had one of the Caddies I'm happy to use my pick up for all my driving needs but I recognize it does most things poorly. It would be easy to find a vehicle that would be far better in regard to ride, handling, acceleration, economy and aesthetics. When it comes to towing I would rate my truck as excellent. If you use your truck to do what your Cadillac could do I have to wonder why? hard to understand.. Hard to understand for some maybe. I just like driving my trucks, I feel I have ride, handling, power and aesthetics. I don't drive a plain from the factory truck. Plus I have the ability to see what's happening further down the road. Heck when I had my 2500HD we took it on none towing trips of 3-5K mi instead of a car. I've also driven this 8K in one months time, Mi to Ca to Fl. to Mi https://i.imgur.com/vZVuCbUl.jpg We also go for rides in this. https://i.imgur.com/wIDAS5xl.jpg As you can see I'm not a snob about what I drive but they aren't your one looks like another either. Oh and at 75 I'm not a young guy either

RE: Auxillary Fuel Tank ?

The way I did it years ago when I had to flip a switch to change tanks was to run the auxiliary tank first. But then I put a gauge on that tank and no longer needed to do it that way

RE: Auxillary Fuel Tank ?

I've been looking into the same thing for a 2017 RAM 1500. From everything I've been able find out, it appears that auxiliary tanks for gasoline have been outlawed. There are lots of options for diesel, but nothing for gasoline. Auxiliary tanks for gas are legal. Check Transfer Flows 40,50,75 gal. tanks for gas

RE: Shelby, MT to Cardston, AB via MT-213

One thing about Del Bonita is there shouldn't be any long wait if there's any wait at all. It's wide open country going up there and very little to see other than the plains

RE: Shelby, MT to Cardston, AB via MT-213

google Del Bonita border crossing for hours of operation as it's not open 24/7

RE: SRW vs Dually

Not true - DRW looks MUCH better! Only thing I learned from this thread is that some prefer wide rears. :B Depends on what the wide rear is attached too:)

RE: Campground Theft

Maybe you should do as granny on the Beverly Hillbillies and keep a shotgun loaded with rock salt. LOL :B That'd be great, if you saw them

RE: Having a SENIOR moment

I assume you older folks remember the yield signs on all interstate highway entrance lanes way back when. After those signs went away, the dummies took over. Michigan has never had the yield signs on interstate on ramps since I started driving in 1960

RE: Campground Theft

Just as ridiculous was the theft of two hub caps off my trailer this year. They were on when we got there or I would've noticed. Also after running close to 8000 mi with them on this year they didn't just fall off during a 60 mi trip. Both on the same side and the wife told me the dog growled after I went to sleep that night but she just figured he heard an animal outside and didn't want to wake mne

RE: Loose tow bar in receiver

Another way if you or a friend have a welder is to run some beads along the top or bottom and grind to the fit you want. I've done this more than once for a nice close fit
