RE: Wolf Creek Pass Which direction

I've gone both ways many times. It's a better view going down than up. But if grades and heights freak you out, it's easier to go up. Don't both directions have both up and down ??

RE: Driving people to boondock by calling themselves a "Resort"

we have reservations in a didderent place but just for kicks ... Marg is not a resort no beach no river no mountain within 5 miles of mountains. PR Landing is no resort. Again no beach no mountains does have hills does have stream. Both have pools. ... That's a terrible Haiku.

RE: Forest Service Campground - First Come, First Serve & hosts

Locals here become friends w the hosts at non-reserved FS campgrounds so they get a call when something opens. The host typically puts the lawn chairs out to hold the spot until the camper shows up. sounds like a good approach Sounds like lack of ethics.

RE: Pop-up -> TT ?

My wife & I are ready to upgrade from our pop-up to a travel trailer... We experienced the same recently. 10 great years with our Jayco Baja 10Z popup. But we realized that we were transitioning from long weekend and week-long destination camping to more long distance traveling with overnight stops which became a real hassle with the popup. We already had the truck, so our choice was a Nash 23D travel trailer. We wanted something not too small but not too big as we tend to the national and state park style campgrounds as well as dispersed camping. We picked the Nash because they are made for off-highway use, slightly lifted and with a sturdy in-house built frame. They do tend to be heavier than the typical. We are quite happy with our choice and would recommend. Random thoughts: - Haphazard quality seems to be standard in the RV industry. - Not familiar with the Sequoia, if that will be your tow vehicle, pay close attention to PAYLOAD, and use the trailer GVWR rather than "dry" weight for calculating your capabilities. - Find a floorplan you like, then start comparing the offerings. - While we were able to store the popup at home, we have to rent storage space for the TT. Good luck and happy camping! The old: The new:

RE: Broken waste ball drive arm - Thetford toilet

OK! Easy peasy. Done deal. Probably took less than an hour start to finish. On a different note, I was puzzled by what I saw when I looked down into the black tank with a flashlight. Not what I was expecting, but that's a question I will pose in a new thread.

RE: Are damage deposits at parks customary?

I think it was just making a joke about "Google is watching you" ... Uh... that's no joke!

RE: Cortez, CO RV parks?

We stayed at the campground inside Mesa Verde National Park. It was a very large campground but there were only 15 or so full hookup sites. Does the lifetime senior pass still get the 50% off sites, inside the National Park? No discount at the Morefield Campground in the park. Under a private concessionaire operation... Not true. We stayed two nights in August 2020 and received the discount. Just checked, this is from the reservations web page: "National Park Service Senior/Access Pass Policy Passes are applicable to all camping. Discount will be applied only to campsite occupied by the person to whom the passport has been issued."

Broken waste ball drive arm - Thetford toilet

Thetford Aqua-Magic Style II toilet. Ordered the part from Amazon. Is it an easy DIY fix? Not much room on the side, I may need to remove the toilet to get to it. Tips / tricks from those who have done this replacement are welcome. Also, seems the kit includes some sort of seal. Not sure where that goes. THANKS IN ADVANCE!

RE: 6 Volt Interstate batteries

Thanks to teejaywhy I have a conundrum. Lined up a couple of Les Schwab GC2 6 volts but I haven't picked them up yet. Looked at Lowe's Deka batteries and they seem to have more power, so hard to find good info on any 6 volt battery. The Deka's are also cheaper at $144 each, I think the Schwab's are $168 each. Can't get the Deka's till Oct 19th, but no hurry right now. Do the GC numbers mean anything. The Schwab is a GC2, the Deka is a GC 15, that better?? What to do? I don't know anything about the Les Schwab battery, best to compare specs from the manufacturer web page. The main spec to look at is the Amp-Hour rating as measured at a 20 hour rate. Please note, Lowes website erroneously gives the rating at 448 amps. The Deka GC15 is rated at 230 Amp-Hours.

RE: 6 Volt Interstate batteries

Trojans indeed, are a bit pricey and I was put off by the bad reviews of the Costco Interstate batteries, even though they are a steal at about $95 each. I ended up choosing the 230AH Deka GC15. Lowe's carries them at $144 each, free delivery to your local store, and you can get a 5% discount if you are a veteran.

RE: Kebler Pass CO

teejay -- a wild guess -- is that Marcellina Mountain?? Very distinctive formation -- a big blob of lava that welled up and bent the overlying layers into an arch. Not sure, but looking at the map it seems very likely.

RE: Kebler Pass CO

Follow-up: We did end up using the Kebler Pass road on our recent Colorado trip to traverse from Hwy 133 to Crested Butte. Road was very well maintained gravel, we averaged 30-35 mph. Very scenic!

RE: Norcold N7X intermittent on propane coldest setting

Just to clarify... we were boondocking and NOT connected to shore power. No 120VAC is present. Thanks

RE: Norcold N7X intermittent on propane coldest setting

......operating indicator turns RED THAT is associated with NO 120VAC Available and fridge SWAPPED to gas but gas failed to light off. Per service manual Should none of the heat source inputs be available, the power ON /indicator light (See Fig. 14, D) will be solid RED Are you using 'AUTO' mode or Manually selecting 'GAS Mode'?? See pgs 28/29 for troubleshooting Solid RED Most likely issue is with gas train components...clean burner, correct spark gap, spark electrode, gas valve solenoids of circuit board Burner dirty, spark gap are maintenance ---owner The other items are NOT components that can be individually replaced......whole gas train is replaced as an assembly which should be a warrnty item. Polar 7/8 Series Service Manual Thanks for the help. I will look closely at the troubleshooting guide. I'm now not sure if the the red indicator was solid or if it was blinking... hmm (RTFM right?) To follow-up: - I am manually selecting GAS mode. - The fridge is operating normally for many hours before the indicator goes green to red. (not like a start-up problem) - Once I set the the temp from 5 to 4, the fridge operated without fault for 3-4 days. Someone suggested an "ice up" condition and adding a inside fridge fan could help. Does this sound plausible? For sure, this was the first extended trip where we had the fridge packed with food. Thanks again. Tom

Norcold N7X intermittent on propane coldest setting

Trying to figure out if this is a known problem or an issue to be concerned about. We have the Norcold N7X fridge. Works fine on electric. Works fine on propane EXCEPT if it is set to the max cold setting (five snowflakes), in which case, the operating indicator turns RED after some time of operation. The period of time seems random, anywhere from 12 to 36 hours of operation and not associated with any particular action or event. On our recent 10 day trip, this happened about 5 or 6 times over a period of about 7 days. Happened a couple times after traveling and arriving at the campsite (at first, I thought perhaps the flame was blowing out..) Several times it was red in the morning when I got up. At least once during the daytime when we returned to camp after a hike. Power OFF then ON restores operation after which the fridge operates normally again for some random period. At some point, I set the cold setting back to four snowflakes after which the fridge stayed on and operated normally for the remaining 3-4 days of the trip including. Question: Is this "normal" or should I contact my dealer before my warranty expires. Thanks for the collective experience! Tom
