RE: Portable Jump Starter

I’ve been carrying a lion jump starter for 2 years now, used it a half dozen times. Twice on vehicles that we laid up for 6 months the rest for others. Only about the size of a 2# block of cheese. After 6 months it’s still 95% charged.

RE: How many miles a day can we go?

500 miles in the eastern corridor is completely different than out west. 10 hour days are okay for us but after a couple we shorten up the driving time. Drew is right, I 81 Is a lot less stressful than I 95 And only adds about an hour to your route.

RE: Toilet Bowl Leak

Thx guys. We get home tomorrow and I know what my next DIY project will be! Put in a Dometic 310 and you will never go back the the Tetford. While replacing put in a supply line shut off. My suggestion also. And of course now that I have a shut off valve I’ve never needed it. But that’s a good thing.

RE: Question on Sprinter based motorhomes

We find the over cab bunk works great for storage. The advantage of having it block the sun while driving is seldom mentioned but certainly easier on the eyes. It probably does rob some fuel efficiency, but then that wasn’t the reason for buying a class c.

RE: Full-time and don't/didn't like it?

More like extended snowbirds here. We are heading home next month after 10 months on the road. We’ll never sell the house, just can’t see cutting the cord. So here is the big observation. Rv life isn’t easy when you approach the finish line. Most give it up as one or both have medical issues that make the lifestyle too challenging. The number of folks over 80? Only 1 out of 175 sites in our old fahts cg.

RE: Toilet clog

Many of you are assuming the tank is directly below the toilet. Older rigs frequently had a lateral run which encouraged clogs.

RE: Planning a trip Yellowstone, Mt Rushmore, Deadwood Etc.

We went to Yellowstone last mid September. 80 degrees in Cody WY Snowing on our way into Yellowstone The Badlands were were very interesting and should be added to your itinerary. You’ll never be closer.

RE: toad versus no toad

We have a 26’ Class C and towed our Jeep Liberty out west last fall. Class C > 5000 miles Jeep. > 2000 miles We enjoy riding fire lanes to spot wildlife and would have missed a lot without the Jeep. Getting gas while hooked up was never an issue.

RE: Hard water stains

Muriatic acid followed by washing with soap and water. Wax to reduce future staining.

RE: Yellowstone Trip

if you have time, take a day drive out of Cody and drive the Chief Joseph scenic highway up to Bear Tooth Pass and down to Red Lodge MT and back to Cody. Great drive!!!! not for pulling a trailer or motorhome! Cody to Ten Sleep to Buffalo and 90 on to Devil's tower. Crossing on 16 is the easiest of the three routes, but not a piece of cake, either. Going up out of Ten Sleep is not a hard climb. Going down to Buffalo is a lonnnnng descent, so watch your brakes. Other than that, it's a gorgeous drive, and there is water and a dump station up near the top of the pass. We did the route in the other direction, ie north through the park and south on the Chief Joseph Trail and felt that it was a lot easier on the brakes, very scenic either way. Going through the Bighorn Tetons on the southern route with a class c towing a Jeep was not intimidating, but all ten cylinders were churning. It would not be a good route to drive at night, as sheep or deer crossing the road are tough enough to deal with in daylight. Mid September it was 80 in Cody and snowing on the way into the park.

RE: Foot pedal spring, Thetford Aqua Magic 2

Dometic 310 is the cure for your problem. The plastic shaft that the pedal rides on is probably worn.

A good friend of mine was electrocuted and permanently disabled while working as a lineman for the power company. I can make a very good case that his service (keeping the power on) is a much greater need than a peacekeeping force in Afghanistan. Does everyone who works for the utility companies deserve special discounts? “ Another vet here. Incredible that someone can equate working at a 7-11 with military service. Let me guess how much skin you have in the game.

RE: New old ride

That's...a rather unusually large motorbike! Congratulations on the new RV! Hope it works out well for you. In terms of a toad, I would suggest giving some thought to what sorts of things you'd use the toad for. Many probably would suggest a Jeep, for example, but if you have no interest in going off road or on rough back roads it may not be the best option for you as the on-road handling is necessarily compromised to a greater or lesser degree when compared with many other vehicles. With a handle of ”Jeepman71” poster must be familiar with the ride. We just towed our Jeep Liberty out west and found it to be a great choice Easy to set up for towing. We are not big off-roaders but did enjoy riding fire lanes and other lesser used roads, some of which suggested 4x4 and high ground clearance for watching wildlife.

RE: Yes boys and girls, you REALLY need to carry a spare...

Bauer electric impact from Harbor Freight $90 about 1100 ft/pounds. Works great if you have a generator. It is hefty but that is why there is so little torque passed through the handle

RE: What air compressor do you carry?

Another Satisfied Vair user here. About 40’ of 1/4” air hose covers any situation.
