RE: Weird electrical problem

If you are plugging into a GFCI circuit, RV’s don’t play well with them. Look for a non GFCI and give it a try. Keith

RE: History of the Grand Canyon

So what does all this nonsense have to do with the history of the Grand Canyon? Seriously off topic! Keith

RE: Yellowstone/Tetons Big Site Campgrounds

The only RV park inside Yellowstone with hookups is Fishing Bridge and it is closed for the 2019 season for a rebuild. There are many RV parks in West Yellowstone and Grizzly is probably the best. The consequences of staying outside the park is the drive in and out every day and the animal jams that are quite routine. There are also many campgrounds within Yellowstone if you don’t mid dry camping. Many of those can be reserved in advance and will list what the size limitations are. Kind of depends what your camping style is and your tolerance is for camping. Enjoy Yellowstone. Keith

Camping World Prices

So, I needed a new propane hose for my portable heater. CW seemed like the only place that actually had them in stock. Checked their web site and they had a price that I could live with. Went up to the local store and found that their store price was quite a bit higher. Got out my phone and showed them their own price which they agreed to honor. However, they said that the next time they would have to charge shipping. Looks like I’ll be purchasing more RV supplies on Amazon which is even lower priced. Keith

RE: S*M*A*R*T Caravans

No, I haven’t been associated with any caravan. We have been impacted by them on our multiple trips to Alaska. After speaking with some of those in the caravans, it was apparent that the intense itinerary and need to make it to the next stop was wearing on them. We have been told that campgrounds were full due to the caravans. They book the spaces way in advance. We have run into blockages at the campgrounds due to caravans waiting in line. Fueling stations blocked. Most of the caravans are usually 20+ rigs and often there are several there at the same time. Have a breakdown that can’t be fixed quickly and you will be most likely left behind. Catching up is up to you. Sound like fun? Pay your $10000 and be herded around like sheep. Keith

RE: S*M*A*R*T Caravans

For those of us who choose to go it alone and stop whenever we want, caravans are a pain in the you know what. They book the campgrounds in advance making it hard to find a space, the large groups traveling together they tend too clog up everything. The schedules they keep you on can be quite tiring after a while. Just go it alone, stop and enjoy the sights, spend a few nights boondocking in a clear space and have a more restful enjoyable trip. There’s only one road, you can’t get lost! Do you need a caravan to guide you around the lower 48? It’s no different for Canada and Alaska. Don’t be a sheep and part of the flock. Keith

RE: rt 152 new mexico

152 is a great road for a motorcycle, but do not take an RV across that road. Keith

RE: Update from Angel Fire New Mexico...

Yep, this is a very beautiful area this time of year. Will be riding the Enchanted Circle on Sunday with a group of riders round trip from Albuquerque. Looking forward to the high road to Taos along the way. Some of the best motorcycle roads in the country. Keith

RE: Do you carry a spare tire?

Maybe you have never had 3 flat tires in one day. It has happened to me twice. Overloaded? Old? Inflation? Back in the 1960s tires were crummy. We had some old baloney skin tires and bought retreads because we had no money. They did not hold up well even at speeds below 55 mph. The other problem has been driving on rough roads covered with things like basalt which can fracture into sharp fragments. Modern radial tires have a lot of flex in the sidewall. Even 8 ply rated truck tires may have only a couple of plys in the sidewall and are prone to punctures. This thread is about tires for a motor coach, Class A! 22.5 inch tires are very heavy and most coaches are not designed with a place to carry them. 8 ply tires???! Most coaches run on 16 ply tires and lug nuts require 450-500 ft/lbs of torque. Come on folks, think about what is being discussed before sticking your foot in your mouth. Keith

RE: Balloon Fiesta in October in Albuquerque?

Balloon Fiesta starts October 6th. Any campground in the Albuquerque area, including Santa Fe, will be packed. If you don’t already have reservations I would doubt that you will be able to find anything during the 9 days of the Fiesta. Keith

RE: Yellowstone info

Fishing Bridge RV Park is the only campground inside Yellowstone that has hookups. Unfortunately, Fishing Bridge will be closed for the entire 2019 smmer camping season for a much needed renovation and site improvements. With the closing of Fishing Bridge, camp sites will be harder to find in 2019. This will take away around 350 camp sites per day. Reservations will be a must and the first come first serve campgrounds will be packed. Not too many options for those who may want to drop in unscheduled. I’m sure the commercial campground operators in West Yellowstone will be delighted as they also will be packed full. Keith

RE: Albuquerque and Santa Fe?

I am going to make one last post on this topic. People seem to miss my points completely. I have worked with 3 Native tribes, including 6 years on the Navajo Reservation. I have travelled plenty in Mexico and NM. Dealing with different kinds of people is what makes traveling interesting and worthwhile. NM has all kinds of interesting people, but they are hard to read sometimes. Compared to other western states, they have more racial tension. Newbie travelers to the state, especially those from the East Coast or the Midwest need to learn the ways of Native peoples and respect them. Maintain your situational awareness and you will be fine. You couldn’t be more wrong with your thinking than this! You continue to dig your hole even deeper. Those planning to visit our culturally diverse state should completely disregard these type of comments. Come and enjoy all that New Mexico has to offer. Oh, and don’t forget to eat the very best green chili one can find. Keith

RE: Albuquerque and Santa Fe?

New Mexico is a very interesting place to visit. I worked for a company with an office there and visited frequently. I once tried to move there. Alb is a big town now and has some racial issues. Santa Fe is the tourist and art mecca with a lot to see, but it has become an odd town. NM struggles with clashes between Native Americans, people of Mexican ancestry and people with Spanish ancestry. Then you have the rich urbanites from far away that come for the art. There is the heroin connection up in Espanola. We did not move there because of the racial tension. It is hard to read people when you are out in the boonies. I mean no offense to native NM people. I love the state and plan on visiting again. It is a place that requires vigilance and high levels of situational awareness. Do not boondock camp up in the NW corner for instance if you are Anglo. My next trip I will be visiting places like Las Vegas, NM and other historic towns off the tourist trail of SF/Alb. Need to get this off my chest! Probably won’t last long. The above post is a racially and culturally insensitive post. It is not as bad as the poster paints it here in New Mexico. There are problems everywhere if you look hard enough for them! Keith

RE: Albuquerque and Santa Fe?

Strange, have lived in this area for over 40 years and have not experienced any of the problems you described. However, we don’t sleep on the side of the road. Perhaps it’s not too smart to try and sleep by the side of the road most anywhere. Was just recently in Espanola and didn’t see any drug runners with guns. New Mexico is a wonderful place to visit in spite of what one person wants to spout off about. Sure there are problems in places, but no different than most any other area in the US. Come on out and enjoy the culture, eat some green chili and have a good time. Keith

RE: Albuquerque and Santa Fe?

To visit Santa Fe, stay at Santa Fe Skies RV. As for Albuquerque, there are several places to choose from. A couple of the Indian Casinos have RV parks. Isleta Casino south of town has a RV park and is close to the railroad where you could catch a commuter train to Santa Fe and Route 66 Casino has a new RV Park just west of town, looks pretty good. Ignore all the political and racial commentary as you can find that stuff anywhere. Keith

RE: Tires just one more time

This week we'll be buying new tires for our 5er. We have always used Michelin tires on our cars and the TV. But not sure that is the best brand for a trailer. Our trailer has ST235/80R16 tires on it now. Please offer your favorite tire for this application. Michelin does not build 16" trailer tires and none of their 16" LT tires have enough load capacity to replace any of the ST235/80R16E tires. The tire size designation, ST235/80R16, has more than one load capacity. They can be purchased with many different brand names and some are even made in the USA. Just about all of their major manufacturers have a steel cased version, Carlisle has recently added the steel cased ones to their trailer tire line-up. Click Here! Or Here! Over and over again, FastEagle or CALandLIN or whatever screen name he is currently using, tries to sell more ST tires. Quit making a fool of yourself, Calvin! Your nonstop line of disinformation regarding replacement of ST tires simply doesn’t work anymore. Go out and put whatever tire you feel are the best on the rig. There aren’t any laws governing tire replacement. Surely, FastEagle or CALandLIN will post some lawyer speak and some industry standards and manufacturer regulations to entertain. Keith
